There is an old negro woman, appa
rently half crazy, about torn who has
given the Council any amount of trou
ble. Putting her in the calaboose dloes
her no good. Friday she offended again
by fighting, and the Council proposed a
new remedy, and directed a policeman
to put her to ehopping down weeds on
the street; but they reckoned without
their host, for'the sable amazon had no
idea of doing rany such thin~g. Sh6 lay
down on;.- the street, and refused to
budge. The eart was brought up, three
.polfeemeU dumped her in, And she was

are now looking in vain for their peri

been sent by a New York illustrated

country instead of riding by sayin~g that
they were artists and were making
sketches of the country.

More Old Deeds.
We were shown this week two old
deeds by Sheriff Wheeler. One was
made by Thomas Pinckney, Governor
of South Carolina, to Peter Schum part,
the 6th of August, 1787, of a tract of
hnd. in ')hnge'onrg'DistdA" of 367
acres, between Campain L sek (which
we suppose wvas intended for Camping
teck) and Bear Creek, the considera
tion being 8 pounds and 11 pence.
Orangeburg District .then . covered a
large territory, embracing what was
aftrwards donfained in severaP Dis:
tricts, now Counties. This hmnd was in
what is now Lexington County, . Pe
ter Shumpart, we suppose, was the
anc'estor of some of= the Schumperts of
this County, the spelling ef'the name
having been changed.
The other deed i.- a grant from King
George I11, of England. to Andrew
Bower, (now spelled Bowers,) the 5th
of May, 1773. The deed is signed by
Win. Bull, Lt.-Gov., of the Province o.
South Carolina, and conveys 150 acres
in "Craven County," in the form of m
square, bounded on all sides by vacan!
lands. This tract is either in Lexing

Lower Rates Wanted.
Hundreds of people availed them
selves of the reduced rates of fare on the
rail roads a few weeks ago to visit
liarleson. and sevral thousands of
dol}ars which otherwise would not have
seen the 1ight of day, changed hands
and got into healthy circulation. The
late cheap excursion to Columbia ena
bled ten thousand people to visit the
Capital and enjioy a rich treat in the
great "unveiling." Many of these
would have remained at home but for
the orportunity afforded. The hearts of
the merchants of - Columbia were made
glad in the trade realized by it, and the
rail road companies' receipts were grat
ifyingly large. Cheap rates of travel
are needed, and if the rail road compa
Ilies would see it. much good would re
sult. If we cannot, however, have :I
permanent reduction of fare, let us
have frequent excursions to regular
points, with privilege to lie over at sta
tions along th( roads. and hundreds
who.do not travul will take advantage
of it and trade will he gieatly~ revived.

Hloge School.. A large numbler was
pre'(sent, and had a very plensant day o
it. Thieero.wning of the May Queen wals
performed in good style, the addresses
an!t responses being delivered fluently
and1( tastefully. The pupils, b)oys and
girls, of all sizes, then delivered speCh-I
es. This part of the execises reflected
great credit on the pupils and their
teachers, and gave unmistakable evi
dence of gratifying progress. The ex
tracts spoken exhibited marked good
taste in their selection. It consisted of
pieces varying from grave to gay, from
lively to severe, and not one contained
a word that could by any possibility
grate harshly on any car. The exerci
ses were interspersed with songs from
the pupils accompanied by the organ.
The quiet, orderly behavior of the p)u
pls, showed that their manners had
been an object of attention, as well as
their minds. The following whites
wer -present bg special invitation:
School Commissioner Boozer,,School
Trustees A. J. Kilgore, Tarrant and
Speers, and the HIERALD Editors. Mr.
Boozer being called on made a short
address, expressing his gratification in
the evident adlvancement made by the
puils; after which the gentlemen
above named were directed to a table
preared for them and partook of a
sumptuous dinner. Th~e large supply
of boxes, trunks and baskets showed
that bountiful p)rovision had beeni made

The Monumental Festival.
The ilades of Newberry, town and
County. having determined to raise the
remaining funds necessary to build a
Monument to the -"Confederate Dead"
of this County, went heartily to work,
andl prepared an entertainment that
surpassed anything of the kind seen in
Newberry for many a day. By active
canvassing the (c,-o)mjittee coillected the
eatables and drinkables and Thursday
and Fridav nights trave a supper in
Foot's Ilall. The attendance was large;
the tables were laden wiit the substan
Lials of life, prepALred in the most appe
Azingr style, together with every delica
,y that the most fastidious epicurean
-ould desire. The waiters, or wait
resses we should say, were as pretty as
pinks and as polite as-as French dan
.ing masters. . Some of the members of
:he Cornet Band being absent in Colum
>ia, the services of a string band- were
rought into requisition, and the music
iflorded added much to the pleasure of
he entertainment. The prices asked
or supper and for everything had for
;ale was so very low that money was
;)pent freely. The net proceeds of the
mtertainment were $179.
The ladies are entitled to praise for

Of the Young Men's Christian Asso
aiation in the Methodist Church on
Sunday night, notwithstanding the un
avorablc nature of the weather, called
orth am large audience, and well was it
epaid by the services, wvhich were of a
leeply interesting character. The re
ard shown by the community on this
xecasion is strong evidence that the
persevering and zealous eflorts of the
young men who compose this Associa
ion have not been in vain, and we for
>ne acknowledge that they have done
well and are entitled to the sympathy
af all. Following out the programme
prepared, the exercises were opened by
singing the beautifully appropriate
bymn "Coronation," and an earnest in
ocation in prayer by the Rev. J. B.
Campbell. The report of the retiring
President, Mr. R. Y. Leavell, shows
hat the Association was organized in
A pril, 1876, and has an active member
ship of 22, with 9 associate members.
We are surprisedl that the number is
not greater, but it is all the more credit
to the few zealous members who labor
so patiently and determinedly to
keep up its efficiency. The amount
sised during thge year is as.follows:
Donations $15.25, Dues $28.50, Dime
Readings $27.80. Contribution Box
5.35, for Yellow Fever Sufferers $63.
GO, making a total of $135.50. The
value of Hall Furniture is $70, and the
Association has in its Library from GO
to 70 volumes with 88 pamphlets. It
hs also a fine reading room which is
liberally supplied with good newspapers
and magazines, and the report shows,
since its opening in December last,
that it has had 681 visitors. There
have b)een 55 devotional meetings.
Business meetings are held every 2nd

The Latest and Best
Invenion of the present age is the
new Press for expressing the juice from
1Blackberries, Grapes or Apples which
can be done in the quickest, cleanest
and most gratifying manner. It is
worth double the price asked for it and
is far ahead of any other article for si i
Ilar purposes ever before brought tothe
attention of the public. With one of
the;e neat and convenient articles a
ghass of fresh cider ean he obtained
quicker than you can make a lemonade
or draw a Cu) of tea. and by a simple
cange or removal of the strainer it
will stuff'sausages in the most approved
style, by it also can be expressed the
very last drop of lard from cracklings.
Decidedly it is the most useful. and
convenient little contrivance for the
uses named we have ever-seen, and we
adlvse our lady readers especially to go
and examine it at the store of Messrs.
Coppock & Johnson. There are two
sizes-one gallon and two gallons at

not a hard-hearted cabbage either-he
laid his offering on our table. We ap
preciate this token of regard and espe
cially that the gift was beans-we have
a tenderness for beans.

interesting as usual. Tuesday, in the
corridor of the Wheeler House he

and said: "Sir, I am truly delighted to
see you; I have been looking for a pri

failed to find one; I feared they were

sounded, and the Judge escorted the

replied: "Tes, my friend; but the fire
is not in this world."

"Yout dye when I'm away."
