Our friend McRAY looks through
glasses darkly when he speaks of age;
he has certainly lost his family record.
Look it up grand-papa, and ask THOMP
soN with a p, of the Keowee Courier,
McKERRALT., of the Star, A. A.. Gi.
BEr, H. L. DARR, Dad EVANS, Uncle
Bon, and a score of others, who might
easily remember when we were chris
tened. He should have attended the
last meeting of the Press Association
Maj. Melchers was there. In conside
ration of our reputation among the
young ladies, we trnst the Press gang
will prove to.the Courier-Journal man
that he has done us' great injury. As
to the compliment paid to the paper,
modesty forbids a word.
A WARNING.-It is time that the Be
gister was protecting itself against those
who request t?e gratuitous use of its
news or adveriing columns for chari
table or other purposes, and then have
their job or other profitable printing ex
ecuted in other establishments. In fh
ture, we shall be forced to violate the
golden rule so far as to do upt others
as they do unto us.
So speaks the Columbia Register, and
we doubt not every newspaper publish
er in the State has sufficient reason to
endorse it. Quite a nmpber l4tely have
expressed themselves on this and kin
dred grievances, and as tired of doing a
vast amount of work for nothing. It
is time the Press show that -newspapers
are not public property, subject to be
preyed upon, and nsed as a convenience.
Our experience has been, that the more
Ohe publisher dpes of this kind of work
the less is his paper appreciated when
pay is demanded. We go in for pay,
with the privilege of bestowing charity
as the circumstances warrant.
CONSCENCE..-The question is often
aske4, hpw 1papy subscribprs bave you?
It is generally asked through idle cu
riosity. Nor do publishers answer it.
So frequent of late has the query been
propounded, that we have been led to
think that there is a cause underlying,
and the conclusion is that conscience is
at wor4. About one of te4 who desire
information only 4pe pukscibers, the
nine are readers who belong to the class
of borrowers. They feel that they are
cheating the printer, but each one ima
gines that he is the only guilty one, and
judging by his great appreciation of the
paper, and recognizing its claims on the
public, thinigs that every body else acts
on the square by paying for it. Tbis is
a mistake ye sinful borrasers. You
out-number the paying readers largely,
and if one half of you would act on the
square, the publisher would be able to
sleep in peace. glease consider it, and
let us have your names. We know of
individuals and families who get all of
their reading in this way. Any man
can lay by four cents a week to pay for
a year's subscription.

A LIVELY CHIASE AFTER A DESPE
RAnO.-Friday. Connerly McSwain,
olored, went into Mr. Wmn. C. John
son's yard, while the male members
were away, and threatened to beat a
olored woman living in the yard. She
shut the door against him and he broke
open the window, tore up her clothing,
smashed things generally, and then
gave the woman a severe beating. Mr
Jno. Bass, hearing the uproar, went
over and stopped him. He was arrest
ed and carried before Trial Justice Car
lisle, who gave him the full benefit of
the law-thirty days for malicious mis
chief and thirty for assault and battery.
Constable Hlolman carried him to jail,
but when he got into the yard he made
an efort to get away. The Constable
drew his pistol and threatened to shoot,
The prisoner jerked the pistol from his
hand and broke. He ran through Mr.
Smith's oat patch, down by the~ colored
Baptist Church, up Scott's Creek to Cal
houn Street, and up that street by the
College to Mr. Jno. S. Fair's front gate,
all the time a crowd after him and an
other attempting to head him. There
they overtook him. Mr. Jno. Lindsay
had his Remington Rifle, unloaded, but
with bayonet on, and Mr. Fair a navy
revolver. These could scarcely bring
him to terms. He drew his pistol on
them and on Constables Holman and
Lo-ac. He inally1 submitted, and
PIcNic.-The picnic of the Newberr3
Rifles and the pupils of the Femal(
Academy came off in Mr. Cline's grov
Friday. Nearly everybody in towr
was present, besides a large number oj
ladies and gentlemen from the sur
rounding country. A plank floor wa.
laid under the shade of the trees and t
lively .dance was kept up during the
greater part of the day. The most in
teresting feature of the occasion was the
target shooting by the members of the
Newberry Rifles. Twenty-two of the
company entered the list for the prem
inms, which were: For the best average
of three shots, a white silk badge; see
ond best, a red badge; for the best sin
gle shot, a blue badge; for the poorest
shot, a leather badge. The Committee
of Judges were Capt. A. P. Pifer, Maj.
Geo. W. Clotworthy and W. T. Tar
rant, Esq. The target contained alter
nate rings of black and white, the outer
ring being forty inches in diameter,
and there being fourteen rings, the
"&buljls eye" pounting ifteen. Distance
one hundred and fifty yards. The re
sult of the shooting is as follows (count
ing from the outer ring inwards,) the
best possible shot being 15:

Mr. HoTusby and Mr. Taylor tied on

Mr. Hornsby also made the best single

got the leather badge. He wears it
with a good grace, having the consola
tion to know that he has more room for
improvement than any of the contest
ants. The badges were presented to
the successful competitors by Capt. Pi
fer, with a few appropriate remarks.
The dinner was a good one and abun
dant. The party broke.up about sun
set. After tea many of the young pec

which they kept up till midnight.

places of interest in Columbia, and vis

venience of the public is kept open from
six o'clock in the morning until nine
o'clock at night, every day in the week,
Sundays excepted. It will well repay
a visit. The great Paris Exposition
no doubt will present greater attrac

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
ost 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 preja.
