nets and their utility as a protection to
the head and face were more considered

A Home Institution.
We take pleasure in calling attention
to the card of Mr. J. Taylor in the ad
vertising columns of this paper. As a
home institution his shops deserve spe
cial consideration, and we add to this
that he is a skilled workman, reliable,
responsible, and always to be found at
his place of business. There is no ques
tion but that any work he xlndertakes
will be faithfully performed at the low
est living price and with dispatch. We
know whereof wo speak and heartily
recommend him to the people of New
berry. If a new buggy after any par
ticular style is wanted, or the old one
needs repairing, or any other work in
his line is required, go to him.
What Shall We Do ?
One subscriber objects to seeing tihe

tention to marks red, blue or green and
laugh in their sleeves that the editor is
such a simple hearted fellow; and all
the time the unfortunate editor is living
on the hope that each one of the classes
referred tt will come in and pay up.

Sterick's Steam Cooker.
It affurds us pleasure to announce
that our enterprising fellow-townsman,
Capt. L. E. Folk, has bought the right
of the above named Steam Cooker for
this County, by which means our peo
ple have the opportunity afforded of
getting the very best thing for cooking
ever offered to te public. It is a gem
in its way, and is so pronounced by all
housekeepers who have given it a test.
The principle is certainly the true mode
by which food should be cooked. We
have one now in use and find that food
prepared in it is far more succulent and
healthy than by the old and common
mode of boiling, roasting and frying.
and we advise our readers to get one
from the Captai as early as possible.

the case. Her people returned their

In pursuance of a call of the Trustees,
meeting of the holders of G. & C. R.
R. bonds secured by mortgage of the
Laurens Rail Road met in Newberry
Tuesday, 4th instant. Boudholders re
presenting $40,000 were present. The
(lelay of the up tramn the 4th prevented
Gen. Conner, Gov. Simpson and seve
ral bondholders from below from at
tending the meeting. The meeting
was organized by calling Samuel R.
Todd, of Laurens, to the Chair, and
Dr. Jno. A. Barksdale, of Laurens,-wvas
made Secretary. The meeting ap
pointed a coummittee of the bon2dholders
to devise some plan for their protection
in the event of the sale of the road: ,the
ommittee consists of F. J. Pelzer,
of Charleston, R. L. McCaughrin, of
Newberry, and Dr. Jno. A. Barksdale,
When the G. & C. R. R. began the
rebuilding of the Laurens R~oad it issued
bonds to those who contributed money
towards its reconstruction to the amount
of $175,000, these bonds being secured
by a mortgage of the Laurens Road.
$150,000 of these bonds have been
subscribed for and taken up. Re
ently a bill was filed in Columbia to
foreclose the mnortgage and have the
road sold. The bondholders are en
deavoring to protect their interests by
organizing and deciding on some plan
of action. The majoritiy of the bond
holders are in favor of buying the road
and severing it from the G. & C. R. IR.
The Chairman of the Committee ap
pointed the 4th will call the bondholders
oogether as soon as that Committee is
ready to make a report.
