large assortment of those same Bug

than was ever before known in ot
State. The work is good, solid at
substantial, and is guaranteed for or
year. Give the genial Biggs a call an
examine his Buggies.
GOOD SHOOTNG.-Mr. H. M.
Kunkle, living some three or four mil<
from town, came in on foot Monda
with a string of squirrels, twelvei
number, which he had killed on ti
way. The shooting was done with
rifle, and each squirrel was shot in ti
head. He killed thirteen but lost or
out of his pocket; fourteen shots in a
were fired, the extra shot being nece
sary to get out one which had lodgi
in a fork. This beats anything on r

SORGHUM.-We would advise every
farmer to plant a few acres of Sorghum,
'G and this should be the first seed put in
the ground. * * * We know there
is much objection urged against grow
ing sorghum 'When plantation molasses
can be bought so cheaply. This is va
lid,only in theory. Molasses may be
cheap and cotton may be easily ex
changed for it, but it will require less
labor and expense to make the molas
ses at home than it will to grow the
amount of cotton necessary to be grown
and converted into money with which
to buy the molasses.-D. Wyatt Aiken,
in News & Courier.
IN TioUBLE.-The friends )f Messrs.
Jones & Satterwhite will be surprised
r, to learn that these gentlemen have ac
at ted imprudently, but we rejoice to say
without 'nalice aforethought, in intro
ducing a ravishing lot of new spring
fancies in the shape of ties, scarfs, hand
kerchiefs, shawls, &c. Of course all
the ladies of the town and county will
have to be supplied, and it is feared
that J. & S., with their amiable clerks,
will suffer in the event that the de
mand prove greater than the supply.
We learn since penning the above that
2 the factories in which these goods are
made are running on extra time, con
sequently the boys are safe.
THE COLLEGE TELESCOPE was set up
in the College Saturday. and the stu
dents were permitted to look through
S it. Some of them who had never seen
one before were greatly surprised and
t. delighted. It was turned toward Mrs.
Motte's. With the naked eye the boys
saw a mule standing in the field near
the house; when the telescope was
turned on him they could see a negro
man sitting down on the plough ham
mering on it with a stone, and the links
in the trace trace chains were perfectly
visible. The door knob and even the
key-hole of the front door of the house
were clearly seen. Turning it on a
e house still farther off they saw distinct
11 ly a young lady with a duster in her
hand dusting the furniture.
WHAT IT BRINGs.-Now that Spring
is at hand, a general activity is witnes
sed in well-regulated households, the
good house-wife over-hauls everything,
flower and vegetable gardens are seen
t to, rooms from basement to attic are
e examined, bed-rooms, dining room and
s kitchen undergo scrutiny not thought of
s through the cold, dark days of winter.
S Strange, if in all these places there be
e not something lacking: may be a water
pot, trowel, flower-pot, some article of
y crockery, china, glass, wood, tin, iron,
e willow, etc. She takes the situation in
o at a glance, and determies that things
e must be 'set to rights;' a list is prepared
t. and sent to Kingsland & Heath of Co
e lumbia, who she knows will fill her bill
y in the most satisfactory manner. A
y word to the wise is sufficient. tf
A VETERAN.-Capt. Chesley Davis,
aof Jalapa, one of our oldest and most
o respected citizens paid us a visit on
Monday. Though for many years a
subse'ilber to the Herald, we had never
met him before, and therefore highly
appreciate the honor conferred. Capt.
Davis though in his 87th year, and per
haps the oldest man in the county, is
hale and vigorous, and discourses pleas
antly and intelligently of the past and
T present, and on this occasion related
1 many interesting incidents of his expe
rience while soldiering in the war of
- 1812. We regret to say that he was
a suffering from lameness, the result of a
dog bite received two weeks since, and
- strange to say it being the second bite
- from the same dog, each of which was
, caused by his treading on the animal.
~We thank him for the visit.
e THAT HORSE.-A chesnut colored
t sorrel, whose is he ? He seems to be
Saware of his good looks. He is armed
i, with a wicked looking head at one end
- and heels at the other. He swings him
a self round in a circle as he prances.
r- Head and heels and heels and head are
s promiscuously thrown about as if he
r anticipated something, and didn't know
d which side it would come from. In
e the stable they say he is docile, but at
d tempt to bridle him and old nick sticks
out at once. Mount him and he shows
no favors nor asks any. Small boys
- nd boys of a larger growth are seen on
s him and then seen off. He is first up
*y at one end and then at the other, and
goes in the direction which suits him.
ie He likes a wide berth-side walks, mid
a dIe of the street, police, and even Town
ie Council, do not seem to be in his way.
I Obstructions are nothing to him; little
dogs, and market women are conster
-nated when he gyrates on the market
dsquare. Bridle and bit are nothing to
- him, and the more you lash him, the
more he needs it. He can out run a
tdozen candidates. He is original and
never repeats. He is a real Bucepha
glus. He despises a wagon and goes
back on it. Any one wvho meets tbat
horse is impressed with the idea that it
is best to keep out of his way. He looks
so full of 01(1 nick, that you don't know

To THE AFFLICTED.-The National

These visits are designed for the ac

and all such new ones as desire treat
ment of the Institute, yet are unable to
afford the expense and time involved in
a journey to Atlanta. They will come
fully prepared to treat all cases of Club
Feet, Spinal Disease, Diseases of the
Joints, Chronic Diseases, Female Dis
eases, Diseases of the Eye and Ear,
Paralysis, Piles, Fistula, Catarrh and

NEW ENTEPRIsE,-The unemploy
ed will be rejoiced to learn that Street
Walker & Co., propose to establish a
gas factory in Newberry. As this can
be done at a comparatively small cost,
our citizens will readily give their aid
in'furtherance of so laudable a project.
The crude waterial will be obtained in
Columbia free, and subject to no tax,
the State feeling that it will be rather a
debtor to any who will relieve the cap
ital of the pressure it now labors under.
The only expense will be a pipe leading
from the State House to Newberry, with
a gasometer at the latter point. There
will be nothing further to do, than for
Street Walker & Co., to organize their
forces and take them to the tank, turn
the faucet and inflate them with gas,
which in a short time will be conveyed
through the town. The only fear en
tertained is that the Legislature may ad
journ before the dull season is over, but
there is no danger of the members get
ting out of gas at the price now paid.
AN ASTONISHING FACT.
A large proportion of the American
people are to-day dying from the effects
of Dyspepsia or disordered liver. The
result of these diseases upon the masses
of intelligent and valuable people is
most alarming, making life actually a
burden instead of a pleasant existence
of enjoyment and usefulness as it ought
to be. There is no good reason for
this, if you will only throw aside preju
dice and skepticism, take the advice of
Druggists and your friends, and try one
bottle of Green's August Flower. Your
speedy relief is certain. Millions of
bottles of this medicine have been given
away to try its virtues, with satisfactory
results in ever y case. You can buy a
sample bottle for 10 cents to try. Three
doses will relieve the worst case. Posi
tively sold by all Druggists on the
Western Continent. 11-eow.
We can change a fifty dollar bill if you
want a bottle of GLOBE FLOWER COUGH
Sur, the greatest Cough and Lung
Remedy in the world ; or if you want
to try it first and see if what the Hon.
Alex. H. Stephens, Ex-Gov. Smith, Ex
Gov. Brown and Hon. Robert Toombs
of Georgia, say about it is true, you can
get a Sample Bottle for ten cents at
Dr. S. F. Fant's Drug Store, that re
lieves an ordinary cold. The GLOBE
FLOWER COUGH SYRUP never had an
equal for Coughs, Colds and Lung Af
fections. It positively cures Consump
ion when all other boasted remedies
fail. Sample Bottles, ten cents. Reg
ular size, fifty doses, $1.00.
Ahead where they loan you a dollar
and chalk it down till to-morrow, for a
bottle of MERRELL'S HEPATINE for the
Liver. The enormous expense of im
porting the ingredients of this great
liver medicine into this country, is why
our Druggist Dr. S. F. Fant sells but
one sample bottle to the same person
for ten cents ; but as there are fifty
doses in the large size bottles, it is
cheap enough after all at two cents
per dose, for a medicine that has never
been known to fail in the cure of dys
pepsia and all diseases of the liver. It
has never failed in the core of liver
complaint when taken as directed, no
matter of how long standing the dis
ease, It cures Chills and Fever, Con
stipation of the Bowels, Dyspepsia and
Liver Complaint. Sample Bottles ten
cents ; regular size, fifty doses, $1.00.

The first place among our English poets

Also Marvell's exquisite poem, beginning:
"When I behold the poet, blind yet bold,

"Milton was a little under the middle
ize, and possessed a muscular, well com
pacted frame. His hair was light brown,
bis eyes gray, face oval, and complexion
ruddy even in his later days. He was an
xcellent musician, performed well on the
organ and bass-viol, and accompanied the
insrument with his voice. He indulged
moderately in the pleasures of the tablo,

SIR WALTER SCOTT: 1771-1832.
Among his minor peculiarities we might
notice his singular talent for description,
nd especially for the description of scenes
abounding in motion or action of any kind.
[n this department, indeed, we conceive
bim to be almost without a rival, either
among modern or ancient poets.-Jeffrey.
It is the great glory of Scott that, by nice
ttention to costume and character in his
novels, he bhas raised them to historic im
portance without impairing their interest as
works of art. Who, now, would imagine
that he c:ould form a satisfactory notion of
the golden days of Queen Bess, that had
rot read Kenilworth, or of Richard OCour
d Lion, and his brave paladins, that had
not read Ivanhoe ?-W. H. Prescott.
Who is there that, looking back over a

SOMETHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.-A
new era is dwning upon the life of Woman.
Hitherto she has been called upon to suffer
the ills of mankind and her own besides.
The frequent and distressing irregularities
peculiar to her sex have long been to her the
"direful spring of woes unnumbered." In the
mansion of the rich and in the hovel of pover
ty alike woman has been the constant yet
patient victim of a thousand ills unknown to
man-and these without a remedy. "Oh
Lord, how long!" in the agony of her soul,
hath she cried. But now the hour of her re
demption is come. She will suffer no more,

MEssRs. Win. Root & Sons: -About one
year ago I bought a bottle of BRADFIELD'S
FEMALE REGULATOR from You, for one of
my daughters who had been suffering with
suppressed menses for some time. I have
had several physicians attending, but met
with no success until I was persuaded to buy
a bottle of the Regulator, and it is the very
thing for which it is recommended. She is
now in perfect health. I hope all suffering
females will at least try one bottle and have
health again. Very respectfully,
