The Columbia Segar Store.
Citizens of Newberry visiting Colum

old friend. Mr. J. R. Slawson. He has
one of the neatest stores of its kind in
the city, and it is stocked with the
choicest brands of Cigars and Tobaccos,
together with many other-articles indis
pensable to the user of the fragrant
weed. His store is in the Columbia
Hotel Block. Call on him by all means.
Change of Schedule.
The new schedule on the G. & C. R,
R., went into operation the 17th. The
up passenger train from Columbia now
arrives here at 10.8 A. M., and the down
passenger from Greenville at 12.30 P.
M., stopping three minutes. The only
effect of this change, so far as we can
see, is that it will make closer connec
tion with the train to Charleston at Col
umbia going down, but not coming up.

Boss Bug, and we are pleased to say
that he wears his honors with modest
dignity. The latest addition to his mu

That Old Bonnet.
Oui esteemed neighbor and name
sake, the Laurens Herald, notices th9
old bonnet of which mention was made
in our last issue. and describes it as
"long fronted, and after the fashion of
the bow-fraine of a North Carolina to
bacco wagon." The Herald no donbt
called to mind the head gear of a period
anterior to the time we alluded to-say
fifty or seventy-five years ago, when be
was a youth. We did not say it was
one of that kind.

Happy as a Big Sunflower.
While in Columbia a few days ago
we called upon C. F. Jackson, the Dry
Goods dealer, and found him up to his
elbows in new spring goods, and happy
as a big sunflower, and no wonder, he
was enjoying a run of trade calculated
to make anybody effervesce. His latest
request was that we tell the people of
this section that his spring goods are
in, and are altogether lovely, and fur
ther that his five cent counter is bloom

Prosperity can boast of two excellent
schools in operation. The one run by
Mr. J. B. Latham, the other by Mrs. J.
A. Long. The question might be ask
ed-why two s'chools? There ought to
be a union, and it iPho~ped our people
will rise in wisdom and effedt it. With
out intending a comparison between
the two, let me speak of one of them.
It may be called a model school. It is
opened each morning by prayer bythe
teacher. Then each pupil who can
read unite in reading a portion of Scrip
ture, and rise in their place and recite
the Scripture which they had commit
ted to memory the night previous. All
the school then unite in singing a few
songs, when the regular routine of stu
dies for the day are commenced. Prac
tice and theory are combined. The pu
pils are not only indoctrinated in the
theory, but are taught to make practical
application of their studies. Each Fri
day evening they are examined on the
studies of the week. These examina
tions are thorough and exhaustive.
Would that this school had a counter
part in all our schools in the county.
The word of God is too often ignored
in our schools and seminaries. Who
can tell how much good may be ac
complished by th,e children reading and
committing to memory Scrip4Mre, when
backed by the prayers and lectures of
the School Commissioner ?

Dock Sligh was shot and killed Wed
nesday, 12th, by Wm. Mays-both col
ored-on Mr. Philip Sligh's place, about
eight miles from town. Mays went to
Mr. Willie Shealy's house while he was
absent and got his double-barrelled shot
gun. On being asked what he was go
ing to do with it, he replied that he had
got it to shootLa rabbit with. In a short
time both barrels were heard. Mays
told several persons that he had killed
Sligh, and then came on to town and
gave himself up. Trial Justice Carlisle
held an inquest over the body the same
day, the Coroner's jury rendering a ver
dict in accordance with the above facts.
Mays gives his reason for killing Sligh
that the latter had been detected in
criminal intimacy with the former's

One of the most important inventions
of the age is a simple little contrivance,
the use of which will prevent the explo
sion of a kerosine lamp under any cir
cumstances. It is called the non-explo
sive collar, and no more appropriate
name could have been given it. We
speak by the book in saying that it is
the very thing that has been long want
ed. having seen it tested by Dr. S. F.
.nt, at his drug store, to our perfect
satisfaction. It is impossible for a lamp
to explode when invested with this col
lar, and being made to fit the different
sizes of lamps it is adjusted with perfect
ease. An invention of this kind is a
boon which cannot be over-estimated in
the face of such a chapter of accidents
as stands recorded. We advise.our read
ers every one tc go to Dr. Fant, who is
the agent for it, and examine it, and we
know that the verdict will be that it is
the very thing. The price, too, is only
Ho! for Colorado.
A meeting of the colored people of
this County was held in the Hoge School
House Saturday, 15th instant. About
four hundred were present. The object
of the meeting was to talk about Colo
rado and Senator Windom's coloniza
tion scheme. Abraham Miller was
chosen President. Speeches were made
by Lawrence Jones, Munson S. Long
and Abraham Miller-all in favor of
Senator Windomn's bill. A resolution
was passed unanimously to memorial
ize Congress to pass the bii. Hun
dreds of names were signed on Satur
day, and namnes are still being added.
The bill above referred to was intro
duced in the last Congress by Senator
Windom, of Minnesota. It provided
for an appropriation by Congress-the
amount we forget-to enable the ne
groes at the South to emigrate to some
State or Territory in the Northwest.
We do not remember whether the bill
was acted on: it certainly was not pass
ed. The negroes are petitioning Con
gress to pass it. A memorial has been
sent forward from the Charleston ne
groes with 7,000 names to it.
There is not the remotest probability
of the passage of any such bill, and the
negroes ought to begin to learn by this
time that the idea of their being the
"nation's wards" has played out. The
government did enough for them when
it set them free. and now they mlust

The Southern Planter and Farmer.
The March number of The Southern
Planter and Farmer is upon our table.
Its contents are varied and timely, and
its contributors are among the ablest
writers of the South. Judge William
Fullerton, of New York; Col. Robert
Beverly, Major Ragland, and Dr.
Beattie discuss in this number great
and vital questions in which all classes
are interested, and which cannot fail
to interest the thoughtful reader. We
advise our friends to subscribe for The
Planter, and we are persuaded that
when once acquainted with its worth.
they will be slow to discontinue it.

A True Bill.
"Have yoa seen him? He stands in
the room with his back to the stove,
and tells how he could run a news
paper; how he could be as independent
as a hog on ice, and call things by their
right named; how he would expose cor
ruption in high places; how he would
write good, common 'sense, and none of
your frivolous. try-to-be-funny stuff.
Then he criticises other people's meth
ods of conducting newspa!pers, and just
wishes some one would give him a
chance to show his journalistic ability.
The way to cure one of these chaps is to
get him to agree to write a sensible arti
cle every day for a week. Before this
week is out he is sure to be pumped
dry, and will gap worse for an idea
than a chicken ever did with the pip."

'The card of this admirable Hostelry
occupies a place in our paper this week,
and we take infinite pleasure in calling
attention to it. and in recommending it
to the travelling public as in every way
worthy of patronage. A personal in
spection of its various appointments
both as to adornment and comfort pro
duced perfect satisfaction. Parlors,
bedrooms, passages, all present a com
bination of attractions seldom seen
South. The dining room is a picture
of elegant taste and would give a relish
to the most ordinary fare, but it is pleas
ant to say that there is no attempt to
fill the stomach simply through the eye,
for the table comforts are in keeping
with all the other admirable arrange
ments of this house. Mrs. Wright, who
superintends the whole, with the valua
ble aid of Mr. Carr, a gentleman of
large experience and infinite kindness
of manner, has certainly niade tbis
house a charming place of resort for the
traveller. Success to this energetic and
worthy lady. ____
Right Kind of Committees.
The Teller Committee have made in
vestigations but from all accounts very
little has been accomplished, except an
expenditure of time and money. Other
committees of whom better things are
expected are about to rise and explain.
Every busy little woman who has the
care of a big man and a number of
children is a self constituted committee
of one-we like small committees
with full powers to do as she pleases.
Her investigations are close and search
ing. She has been sitting and when
she makes her report it will be with no
uncertain sound. A correct inventory
of every broken or missing piece of
rockery, china, glass or other ware
will be given to the head of the family,
who will dutifully make out'an order
to Kingsland & Heath, of Columbia, for
the artieles needed. That this popular
house will give satisfaction it is needless
to say-those who have tried it tes
