If teachers would write down on a

their pupils need it would save a deal
of trouble, not only to the seller but to
the child. Where no written instruc

know what kind of book is needed.
As the period during which the new
books can be had at the introductory

be well if those who are not supplied

A Good Showing.
We doubt much whether there is a
County in the State that can make as
good a showing in the matter of taxes
for the p:tst year as Newberry. The
total amount of delinquencias on prop
ty was only $1,813.90.
The number of polls assessed in this
County is 3,911. Of this number 1,020
paid promptly. About $500 have been
collected on executions.
The above figuresispeak well for the
peop)le of Newberry County, as well as
for her efficient Auditor and Treasurer.

The ponds around town presented a
lively appearance several days last week
during the cold snap. Skaters were
I out in larcre numbers. Many of them
glided over the ice w't.h the skill and
grace of experts, while others would
have got along better if they could
have accommodated their skates to a
Some of the boys skated on the pond
at Jones' tanyard Thursday, the 9th.
Robert Bruce broke through the ice in
water over his head, but by great ex
ertions he got out, after cutting and
scratching his hands severely. Fearing
that he might not get permission to
skate again if the accident should come
to the ears of the home folks he con
cluded to build up a fire at the pond and
dry himself. In this process, however,
he failed; for being in a hurry he
burnt off the tail of his coat. Wallie
Bruce left his watch on the bank Tues
day, the 7th, for fear of breaking it
while skating, and when he went to
get it again it was'nt there-had skated
into some wayfarer's pocket So you
need'nt ask W-.'.ie for the time of day
The best place for skating was on
Rikard's pond, three miles from town.
The ice there was very strong and
smooth. Monday, Tuesday and Wed
nesday large crowds gathered there and
enjoyed the fun.

Messrs. W. L. Gray and John W.
Fowler, of Laurens, Carried up : load
of convicts from the Penitentiary to
Laurens County Saturday. They had
sixty-seven on board; lifty-six men and
eleven women. They got them to ditch
and work lands on Warrior and Durbin
Creeks. The contract with the State is
for one year, the State clothing the
convicts, ad tihe hirers feeding :nd
paying the State :. 1 ait-ad per
month for them. The convicts were al I

conviets are anxious to be hired out in

Representatives in the Legislature, as
all arc men of fine minds and sterling
worth; hut during a recent visit to the
Capital just before the adjournment of
the Legislature, we were particularly
impressed with the speeches and posi
tion taken by the Hon. George John
stone, her Junior member in point of
years only, in reference to the fraudu
lent Bonds due by the State. He was a
member of the Committee on Ways and
Means, and to him, perhaps, more than
any other member, are the people of
this StaLe indebted for not having this
year to pay a burdensome and unjust
tax of $150,000, the interest o, spu
rious and forged bonds. Ile championed
this matter successfully in his commit

the floor of the Iouse one of the most

lHe also stood by the Bond Court
when an effort was made to repeal it,
and the decision of that Court demon
strated the wisdom of his position, for
they decided in favor of the "Bond
Committee's report," thus saving tile
State millions. This gives us a good
excuse for not p)aying those bonds, for
a State can never he sued(; but South
Carolina wauived this right; went into
Court as a private citizen and took her
chances, proved conelusively that the
Bonds were fraudulent and ought not
to be paid-and got a dlecree in her
favor. Mr. Johnstone had voted to es
tablish this Court at the last session,
and advocated earnestly the continuance
of it. With such talents as he has, and
his justness and judgment in all mat
ters, we predict for him a grandl future
Mr. WV. C. Chapman and brother
exhibited one of Edison's phonographs
in Thespian IIall for two days and
nights last week. The narne derwtes
the character of the instrument. It
comes from two Greek words-phonos,
sound, and graphein, to write. It
(oes, literally, write sounds.
The instrument is rather dliflicult of
explanation to one who has never seen
it: but it is one of the simplest pieces
of machinery imaginable, and is based
on one of the simplest lawvs of natural
p)hilosophy.? All sound is canused by
vibrations of the air. You strike a bell;
the bell vibrates, putting the air (or
atmosphere) in motion; tile air strikes
against the tym panum i, or drumi, of the
ear, and the result is-sound. Yo,u
pa a OughI how 'aeross ai tihile string;
the stinIg vibrates. or is set in mlotion
with the sanme resilit. You force the
air from your lungs through tile larynx;
sound is p)rodluced, and the teeth, tongue

The phlonogrnaph has a cylindrical drum
over vhieb a sheet of tin foil is tightly
sjretched. The other part of the in
stra.ment is the mouth piece of mica, or
isinglass, thbrough which paisses a neettle,
the poit of the needle barely touching
tihe tin foil already mentioned. At
tac~hed :o the mica is a mouth piece.
You lput youri mouth to this mouth
piece and talk loudly ; the air is dis
tugbed and sets the mica to vibraig;
as it vibrates the needle moves for ward
and back. indenting tile tin foil. As
you talk a crank is turned which re
volves the tin foil, which by the means
of tile thrfead's of a screw, moves
from right to left. Now look at the tin
foil, and you see the little (lotted lines
made by the needle. That is a register
of whatever you have spoken into the
mouth piece. Move the tin foil back
so that the point of the needle touches
it just where it did ihen you began to
talk into the mouth piece. Now, it i,
ready to talk back, and to reproduce
your own words, Turn tile crank: the
point of the needle passes over the same
lines on the tin foil that it passed over
while you were talking to it; the
needle enters the little indentations or
dots it made wvhile passing over it be
fore; this causes the mica in the mouth
piece to vibrate precisely as it did
while you were talking, and precisely
the same sounds ar.e reproduced. DJo
you sete the point? No! WVell, we
~ean't help it. Go see the instrument,
and you will understand it at once. It
is the most wonderful invention of the
Iage, not excepting the telephone. It
was invenlted by 1:dison, of Menia
Park, New Jersey, thec greatest me
ebanical genius that ever lived. No
one can see it without wondier. It is
