HOW IT IS DONE.
The first object in life with the Amer
ican people is to "get rich"; the second.
how to regain good health. The first
can be obtained by energy, honesty and
saving; the second, (good health) by
using GREEN'S AUGUST FLOWER.
Should you be a despondent sufferer
from any of the effects of Dvspepsia,
Liver Complaint, Indigestion, &c., such
as Sick Headache, Palpitation of the
Heart, Sour Stomach. Habitual Costive
ness, Dizziness of the Head, Nervous
Prostration, Low Spirits, &c., you need
not suffer another day. Two doses of
AUGUST FLOWER will relieve you at
once. Sample Bottles 10 cents. Reg
ular size 75 cents. Positively sold by
all first-class Druggists in the U. S.
The large and popular establishment
of Messrs. Kingsland & Heath, of Col
umbia, so well and favorably known to
the readers of the HERALD, is now be
ing stocked with all the new and latest
patterns in Crockery, Glass, China, Tin
Ware, &c., besides all the latest im
provements in household and kitchen
utensils. Housekeepers will find in
this store everything pertaining to
house or kitchen, and at moderate
prices, and they are advised to exam
ine the stock while visiting the city.

- FRST.-There was a very respectable
frost in Newberry Friday morning. A
gentleman in town says he saw frost a
week before that-the 5th.
A CvmOUSPOTATO.-Mr. L. F. Long
shore showed us a yam potato Friday,
taken out of his patch, that rather takes
the rag off the shrubbery. It is thirty
nine inches long and almost straight.
MONEY ORDERs.-During the month
of September, 152 money orders were
issued from the Newberry Post Office,
amounting to $1,366.92. Number of
orders paid, 31; amount, $393.11.
GAM LAw.-Partridges are hiding
out now. Their day of grace expired
the 15th. You can kill as many "par
tridges, dovs wild turkeys, wood
cocks, snipes and pheasants" as you
please until the 15th day of April.
Mr. Jno. R. Spearman has been
drawn as a petit juror, to serve at the
November term of the United States
Circuit Court in Columbia. No other
person from this county was drawn on
either the grand or petit jury.
The attention of farmers and dealers
is directed to the new card of Messrs.
J. E. Adger & Co., Charleston, hard
ware dealers.' Their assortment of
goods is very large and embraces every
article in their line which can be called
TANKS.-Mr. A. J. McCaughrin
has our thanks for interesting items on
Rainfall in Newberry and Movement of
Cotton. He makes record of every event
of practical use which happens in New
berry, thereby utilizing his time and
abilities in a useful way.
Do you want bargains in cooking
stoves? It is hardly necessary to ask
such a question, however, for every one
who needs a stove wants it cheap. By
calling on Mr. W. T. Wright the want
can be supplied not only in stoves, but
in all other articles in his line.
OYsTERs.-There are fresh oysters.in
town now. Our young friend David
M. Dickert keeps them fresh at his Res
taurant over Crawford's Stere, and he
knows how to fix them up to suit the
palate of the most fastidious. Besides
oysters he keeps anything else you
want in the eating line.
Mr. T. L. Clark, of Tennessee, for
merly of Newberry, S. C., was killed
on the 22nd ult., by falling off a wagon
loaded with timber, the right hind
wheel crushmng his bowels. He was in
the 65th year of his age, and respected
by all who knew him.
THoxrsos, Dentist, Square above Post
TAXEs.-It is absolutely certain that
the time for paying taxes wil'i not be
extended a single day-it cannot pos
sibly be, for the next fiscal year begins
November 1st. Therefore pay your
taxes before the present month is out
and avoid the penalty.

MORE OYSTERS.-The inquiry last
week-are there any fresh oysters?
brings answer from that veteran cater
er, L. R. Marshall, who says he will
have a supply of Virginia bivalves this
week of first water, besides he will have
the best fish the Charleston waters af
ford. Be ready, oh ye people.

Attention is called to the card of Dr.
W. E. Pelham, by which it will be seen
that he has removed to the new and
elegant store-room in the "Crotwell
Block," and that he has added largely
to his stock of Drugs, Medicines, &c.,
all of which he will sell at unprece
dentedly low prices.

COOL.-A colored witness in Trial
Justice's Carlisle's Court, a few days
ago, was giving bond for his appearance
to testify in a certain case. The Trial
Justice filled out the bond, and after
explaining its nature to the witness, re
quested him to sign it. Witness replied,
"i'll go to h-I on dat." Trial Justice,
"You'll go to jail, or pay a fine of $5 for.

Busy.-The long, dull summer has
passed, and now instead of standing
idly about, leaning against door jambs,
lolling on counters or standing on the
streets talking politics, merchants,
clerks and the rest of mankind in New
berry are busy. The streets are full of
wagons, stores are full of buyers and
an activity in pleasing contrast to the
late dullness is seen everywhere. Cotton
is coming in. Newberry is the busiest
town in the State. Yet some folks are
"THiRTY-FoULR YEARS"-by an ac
complished lady of Spartanburg-is a
very readable book, and will repay
perusal. The story is told in a lively
style, and opens in the ante-bellum
days of our State. The author's de
scriptions are admirable, and her char
acters taken from life. The book is
full of merit and is written in such a
graceful, easy manner that the reader's
interest continues through to the end.
A few copies of the book are on sale
at the Herald Book Store.
CONVICTS AT LARGE.-Sixteen peni
tentiary convicts have so far escaped
from the Greenwood & Augusta R. R.
stockade near Greenwood. Peter Wil
liams, Press Gray and Newton Renwick
are said to be among the number-each
sentenced by Judge Mackey at the recent
term of Court here to four years in the
penitentiary. Some of the colored peo
pie say they have seen them in this
county, or at least two of them, and a
white man says he talked with Newton
THE SDDIxONS HOUSE.--The "Sim
mons House," corner of Nance and
Friend Sts., formerly the private resi
dence of Mr. John C. Wilson, is assum
ing a commanding appearance. It has
been made one story higher, and now
co?tains nineteen nicely appointed
rooms. The dining room is being en
larged to hold two tables. This hotel
is central, and its proprietor, Mr. Ar
thur Simmons, is indeed a hospitable
host, whose delicate tact and attention
are always exercised for the comfort of
"THE AGER."-Thursday evening,
about candle-light, a tall individual
stepped into a drug store with his coat
collar drawn up to the top of his head
and his.hands in his breeches pockets up
to the elbows, and went looking around
as if hunting for a dose of nux vom ica or,
arsenic to kill himself with. "Hello,
--, are you going to have a chill?"
asked a by-stander. "I've got one now,"
said he; and walked out again, the sad
dest and most forlorn-looking individual
it -has ever been our lot to see.
SUICIDE.-Mr. Michael Long, living
in Edgefield County, about five miles
beyond Kinard's Ferry, committed sui
cide Thursday morning. He was on
his way to Edgefield Court House, and
when within two miles of the place
stopped on the roadside and cut his
throat with his pocket-knife. When
found he was not quite dead, and his
knife was in his pocket with the blade
covered with blood and shut. No cause
is assigned for the deed. Mr. Long
was a good neighbor, a good farmer
and in comfortable circumstances.
ANOTHER MOVE.-Keene & Austin,
Stove and Tin Dealers, respectfully in
form their numerous friends and cus
tomers that they have removed to the
elegant new store lately erected on the
site formerly occupied by R. F. Phifer,
and have opened in addition to their
stock. a splendid lot of cooking, parlor
and office stoves of improved patterns,
and at as low prices as any other estab
lishment in the country. The general
stock of tin and other ware is large,
various and excellent, and presents at
tractions worthy attention not only in
quality but price. Roofing, Guttering,
and Repairing generally, done neatly,
rapidly, cheaply. Give us a call.
ANOTHER RUNAwA.-Thursday af
ternoon a team of four large, fine mules
while hauling a load of corn took fright
and ran. They started in front of the
Phifer lot and ran in the direction of the
railroad. They turned the first corner
to the right and the next corner to
left, crossing the bridge over the rail
road at full speed. When they got to
McKibben Street they turned down
that and ran till they got to the front
gate of the jail, where they stopped.
rThe driver was pitched off headlong on
the route, and a little darkey was tum
bled off the load of corn-neither was
hurt. The wagon and harness being
very strong neither was broken.
RELIGIOUS.-ReV- R. A. Fair and
Jas. M. Baxter. Esq., are delegates
from Aveleigh Church to the Presbyte
rian Synod which meets in Columbia
Rev. H. W. Kuhns and Mr. Fred A.

Prof. Holland are also in attendance.

TO THE LADIES.-MrS. Sophia Redus
respectfully announces to the ladies of
Newborry and vicinity that she has in
store and is prepared to exhibit the
handsomest and best selected stock of
millinery and fancy goods ever brought
to this place, all of which were selected
by herself and with especial view to
suit the tastes of her friends and patrons.
These goods have been bought at low
figures and can be sold at correspond
ingly low rates, and it is only necessary
to see to be convinced. She is the
agent for Frank Leslie's paper patterns,
of which a full supply will always be
kept on hand. Store room for the pres
ent at A. M. Wicker's old stand.
PERSONAL.-Rev. F. W. Eason has

Baptist Church, and his resignation has

Mr. P. D. Mazyck has gone to Abbe
ville to take charge of the telegraph of
fice at that place.
Governor Hampton, Judge Cooke
and Judge Reed passed up the Rail
road yesterday (Monday.) The Gov
ernor delivers an address at the Green
ville County Fair to-day.
THANKS.-Now that the long Sum
mer is over and the farmer is realizing
some of the fruits of his labor, he is en
abled to come to town, sell his cotton
and produce, and purchase the articles
he has needed for some time, and to
pay for the paper he and his family
have been reading for months on a
credit, which in a majority of cases
was unavoidable. Some of them have,
during the past week, remembered the
claim we had against them, and have
come in and settled; for which they
have our thanks. We had grown weary
of waiting, while bills for paper and
labor pressed heavily, but we did not
despair; nor do we yet despair that all
the many others will do likewise as
they sell their cotton, and show their
appreciation of the printer who has
waited so long, by settling their dues.

DAILY MAIL TO LAURENS,--We learn
that our energetic Postmaster, Mr.
Boone, is making an effort to get a daily
mail line established to Laurens, which
of course would bring into commnunica
tion all the stations and towns between
Newberry and that point, and prove of
great benefit to the different sections of
country along the route. The unfinished
portion of the railroad between Clinton
and Laurens will soon be completed,
when the connection can be made; in
the meantime should the Department
accede to the proposal of Mr. Boone,
Jalapa, Martin's Depot, Kinard's and
Clinton will realize the advantages of a
dailyicommunication. The present mail
arrang ement (three times a week) sub
jects business men to great inconve
nience. It is to be hoped he will suc
FULL STOc.-Not since the wvar has
Newberry been so largely and splen
didly stocked with goods as is the case
at present. During the last Spring
but few goods were bought by our mer
chants, and during the Summer coun
ters and shelves were allowed to be
come empty without any effort on their
part to replenish their wasted supplies.
In fact there was but little need, the
people were not able to buy in most
part, and those who were felt that it
was best to hold on to what they had
economy was the order of the day.
This could not last always, however;
the current so long dammed up must
break loose; and the merchants seeing
this have bought largely-larger than
ever-and, happily for the buyer,
bought cheaply, and accordingly are
selling at prices greatly in reduction to
last Fall. The display of goods, fancy
and staple, never was handsomer. The
public will scan the advertising columns
of the HERALD and read what the mer
chants have to say for themselves.

MR. EDITOR :-Below is the first com
position of a few year's old little child
the daughter of a friend of yours and
mine, residing in Columbia-whereto
Josh Billings "might just as well to"
surrender. Please give it one insertion
in the HERALD. S E.
The horse is a very useful animal.
The horse ploughs in the field, the
horse eats oats, hay and grass. Horses
neigh. They are easy to be tamed.
Some horses have kind masters and
some have mean ones; some horses
have long tails and some have short
tails; I would not like to be a horse
with a short tail for if I was, the flies
and gnats would wotry me and I could
not reach my tail over my back to
brush them off, Then I would have to
roll in the dirt to brush them off. If the
flies and gnats would go to a horse with
a long tail he would brush them away.
Then the gnats and flies would go to a
horse with a short tail and worry him.
THE LEVIATHAN SHOW COMING ON
FRIDAY, OCT. 26, INsT.-The Leviathan
Exhibition embraces a famous Circus,
stupendous Menagerie, colossal Muse
um, Aquarium, &c., and a grand con
solidated world's wonder exhibition, of
which W. W. Cole is sole proprietor
and manager. The Mobile Register
says: "The wild beasts connected with
the show were all first-class. Then the
performances of tbe circus ring were
most excellent. One rare quality was
the promptness, amounting to almost
dash, with which everything was put
through. There were no long breath
ing spells filled in with stale witticisms
of the conventional clown. All the
acts were just lengthy enough to inter
est the spectator, and not to pall the
taste. These features are so rare in
traveling exhibitions, that we make
special commendation of them here.
Added to this, we may say that all the
performers in the arena are first-class
not a poor one in the lot. We heartily
commend the exhibition to the favor
and attention of the press and public
wherever they may chance to pitch their
We think the subscribers and sup
porters of the Abbeville Press and Ban

the editor to marry somebody. We
would then probably have a change
in the tone of his local department.
Friend Wilson, the bachelor editor of
the Abbeville Press and Banner, on his
late visit to our city, received, so we
eard, six proposals of marriage and
that five other girls sent in their cards.
Altough he is a clever gentleman, wve
don't believe the report. Is it so, Mr.
P. and B. 1-Greenville Enterprise and
Hugh Wilson, Esq., of the Press and
Banner, gave us a call on Thursday
last. The Greenville News says he has
matrimonial designs up there. We
think his designs in this direction are

The above paragraphs are samples of
the many which are going the rounds
of the up-country press in relation to
Mr. Hugh Wilson, one of the most
prominent bachelors in the middle belt.
Something surely must be wrong either
with Hugh or the girls. Some strong
minded female should sacrifice herself
that the country may have peace. Let
us have peace.
