PRACTICAL VIEWS OF MR. R. L. MC- j
TO MAKE REPORT.
A meeting of the citizens of New
berry was held in the Court House Fri
day evening, the 24th. James M. Bax
ter was called to the Chair, and W. H. t
Wallace was requested to act as Secre- I
tary. The Chairman explained the ob
ject of the meeting to be to take steps I
for establishing a cotton factory in the s
town of Newberry. Several gentlemen <
gave their views. Mr. R. L. McCangh- t
rin, who has some experience in such,
matters, made a very practical and in- I
teresting ta'ik. He spoke of the success t
of the Piedmont Factory in Greenville t
County. and of Graniteville, Langley, <
Columbus and Augusta. He thought a <
small factory would not pay-that a e
capital of not less than $150,000 would I
be necessary. Vancluse Factory. re- I
cently put in operation, has 10,000 spin- I
dies, costing $250,000, or $25 per spin- c
die. The Piedmont Factory has 10,- 1
700 spindles, which cost in 1873, when I
machinery wav dearer than now, $29 t
per spindle. As to the comparative r
cheapness of water and steam power, t
he stated the estimate of Mr. Lockwood, I
an experienced engineer, to be one- '
half a cent per pound in favor of water. t
Cotton at nine cents, and the cloth at 2
eighteen would give an advantage to t
water of a quarter of a cent per yard
on the cloth. He thought that a steam e
cotton factory here would pay-not a t
very large per cent., but a reasonable C
one, seven or eight per cent. at least. C
Geo. S. Mower, Esq., offered the fol- I
lowing resolution, which was adopted:
That a committee of five be appointed
by the Chairman of this meeting to pre
pare.and submit to an adjourned meet- I
ing of the citizens a scheme looking to
the establishment of a corporation in
the Town of Newberry having for its
object the manufacture of cotton fabrics,
On that Committee the Chairman ap
pointed Geo. S. Mower, R. L. McCaugh
rin, J. N. Martin, J. D. Cash and Rev. V
H. W. Kuhns. F
The next meeting will be called by
the Chairman as soon as the committee
prepares its report.

BUSH RIVER PICNIC.
L SPLENDID GATHERING-BEAUTIFUL
AND A DELECTABLE DINNER.
The Sunday School picnic of Bush
liver Church came off Saturday. It
vas our good fortune to be present, and
o participate with those hospitable peo
)1e in one of the pleasantest occasions
ve have ever enjoyed. Everybody
>resent, even perfect strangers, were
oon made to feel at home. A portion
f the morning was spent in listening
o addresses from Rev. H. W. Whita
-er, of the Methodist Church, and Rev.
i. E. Broadus, the Pastor (Baptist), on
he subject of Sunday Schools, and to
he singing of the school. The ad
Iresses were good, and the singing was
if a very superior order. We under

argely increased and that much good

ertainly has his heart in the work, and
3 full of energy and life. Mr. Wi.
teeder is the Superintendent. After
he exercises in the Church a bounteous
epast was'spread under the oaks. From
he abundance, the good people must
ave expected about twice as *many as
ere- present. In fact, they had been
old that "Newberry was coming up in
, body to eat them out," and they de
Brmined to show Newberry that it
ouldn't be done. The afternoon pass

gether in groups and discussed the
rops, while the younger ones paired

turday, looking their sweetest.

LIVER IS KING.
The Liver is the imperial organ of
be whol.e human system, as it con
rols the life, health and happiness of
an. When it is disturbed in its pro
er action, all kinds of ailments are the
atural result. The digestion of food,
be movements of the heart and blood,
be action of the brain and nervous
ystem, are all immediately connected
iith the workings of the Liver. It has
een successfully proved that Green's
mgust Flower is unequalled .in curing
l persons affiicted with Dyspepsia or
,iver Complaint, and all the numerous
ymptoms that result from an un
ealthy condition of the Liver and
tomach. Samnpls bottles to try, 10

CONCERT.-The Operatic Company
f Blind performers gave a highly pleas
2g entertainment in Thespian Hall
n Monday night, and we regret to say
a small audience; this is not credit

ras pleasantly varied, and consisted of
istrumental music, songs, duetts and
citations. Miss Hessie White, alto

ANOTHER GoVERNO.-The G. & C.
R. R., down train Friday had on board
Gov. A. H. Colquitt, of Georgia, and
the "Gate City Gards," of Atlanta, op
their way to Charleston. It was known
throughout the town that the Governor
was comning, and nearly all our citizens
wept over to the depot to see him.
Capt. Schumpert's comyany, the New
berry Rifles, were out-in full force, and
took position on the west .side of the
track. When the train arrived his Ex
ellency was invited to address the
crowd, which he did in a few well
timed remarks, the short stay of the
train forbiddipg apytpdig like 4 spe.ech.
The face of the Governor was familiar
to many of our people, they having
seen him often in the times of the Con
federacy; but the greater part had nev
er seen him before. He .has a frank,
onest face that speaks the man of
sound, sterling worth. The "Guards"
are a fine-lopking pomgpany, and were
andsomely uniformed. As the train
moved off the people gave three hearty
cheers for Georgia, and the gallant
"Guards" responded with three aind a
tiger for South Carolina.
The June number of the ECLECTIC MAG

no one of which is ur worthy of its pilace
n a magazine of t.he first class, and which,
aken together, furnish a vast amount of
nstructive and entertaining reading. The
eading paper of the June number is a
ery valuable one on "The Americans in
lurkey,"showing that while other nations are
vrangling and fighting over the Turks and
heir subjects, the Americans have been*
ivilizing them. Few even of our own peo
ple have any idea of the character and ex
ent of the work which American mission

with great care, by Dr. J. B3radfield, Atlanta,
Ga., and sold atl$1.50 per bottle by respecta
ble Druggists everywhere.
