George Johnstone, Esq.
We take an interest in George John
stone, .Esq., of New berry. During the
last session of the Legislature he de
ivered one of the finest and most effec
tive speeches on the right side of the
bond question. .It was short and to the
point-built up in a logical and scholar
y manner and delivered wvith an elo
quent impressiveness born of earnest
onviction. He should bar'e a wife,
nd we are encouraged to think he will
oon have one, if we are to judge from
his manner with the young ladies at
the wedding in Union, last week. Hie
will find the bonds of matrimony pre
ferable to the bonds he opposed in the
Legislature. If he is as fortunate in
selecting the right kind of a wife as he
is in supporting the right side of a
political question he may reasonably
expect much happiness.

Of Greenville, delivered a temperance

aw him on the day succeeding the
ccasion on which he spoke and upon
sking him "how he came out" were
aswered, in this wise: "Well there
was a small audience; Hiden spoke
first and made a miserable failure, and
then I spoke and never made such a
lash before in all my life and have been
shamed of myself ever since." We
would like for this view of the subject
o be compared with the higher criti
cism and comment of the local Jen
inses who were present and "wrote
p the thing."-Abbeville Medium.
If the Medium editors will refer to
ne News of the 23d, and the HERALD
f the 28th, he can be gratified. The
"local Jenkinses" of Newberry gene
rally say what they think about all mat
ters of a public nature. Our idea of a
Jenkins," however, is a sweet-scented,
id-gloved, broad-cloth popinjay who
aarts his hair in the middle, and who
ays for his invitation to private parties
y prostituting his pen to the most ful
some praise of his patrons. The New

He Went Home Early.
It's a rare thing for him to start home
till the evening shadows begin to length

it then. No matter how early he comes
into town or how little business he has
to transact he finds it impossible to get
hrough before dark. One day last year
e departed from this rule and reached
ome long before the shank of the day,
nd in consequence there was a com
otion in that man's house, the dogs
rushed out and yelped at the strange
sight, the children stopped playing and
the family generally rested from the va
rious pursuits in which they were en
gaged, and soon the singular fact got
out into the fields somehow and the
ands came trooping in to see if "de
boss had come home so yearly for truf."
It w as so, there was no denying it, and
o harm came of it either. Like a sev

- coach, in command of Capt. Peake,
3 determined to make a start and gc
i to-Jalapa, the distance being short

especially when our mind was fully
made up. There were three other first
- class passengers besides ourself, and our
i six year old boy, who esteems a ride
behind a locomotive the height of earth
- ly pleasure, and who is never happier
than when enveloped in smoke. an oc
casional cinder in the ey e not even being
sufficient to dampen his love, and judg
ing by the way he engineers everything
and everybody now there is no doubt
he will have a railro:.d for his own
pleasure some day. But there were
three others-one-white-with a shav
ed head who enjoyed four seats in his
stocking feet, and two colored gentle
men in their shirt sleeves, fortunately
just from the hands of a washerwoman,
(the shirt sleeves.) After an unevent
ful ride we safely pulled into Helena to
rest for a moment, while the brakeman
went out for a bucket of water, and the
fireman sounded the trucks. All being
right the Laurens steamed out, Capt.
Peake buried himself in the last chap
ter of Dawson's hundred dollar in gold
story, the baldheaded man resumed his
fight with the flies, the colored gentle
men wiped their sweaty faces with the
sleeves above mentioned, and the boy
shouted in glee that the Laurens was
once more in motion. It was astirring
time-to all but Peake, who had
Ashurst in his eye-we felt emotions,
Jalapa was not so far away as when
we started, and soon, ah! yes, there to
the left Clark's and Folk's residences in
the sun's full rays, to the right Eddy's
shop, Swittenberg's, Campbell's and
other houses, and there were two citi
zens in sight, only two, Campbell and
Swittenberg, dealers in notions and
other merchandise. These two, no
more, enough however. We lighted and
sat under the umbrageous shade of that
famous oak, and there learned that the
rest of the inhabitants were engaged in
getting their frying pans ready for a
quantity of fish which Dr. J. W. Folk
and W. C. Sligh had promised to catch.
We considered it particularly fortunate
in arriving at such an opportune mo
ment, but wve might as wvell add here
before getting off the subject, that no
fish were caught and that we in com
mon with all the other good people were
greatly disappointed. It wasn't a good
day for fishing. Jalapa is a right sharp
place, and made up of the cleverest kind
of people, and we felt sorrow at not be
ing able to spend the night and day of
our visit with all of them. A pleasant
night at Dr. Clark's hospitable mansion,
and afterward strengthened and forti
fied with a dose of the popular "car
minative", preparatory to agood break
fast, a chat with private Tom Chapman
of the old 13th-you see Jalapa has a
'private' also-also with Col. Cannon
and others, from whom sundry items of
interest were gathered, a good, old
fashioned country dinner at Will Sligh's

abounded spring chicken, tender beans,
fresh honey and many other things,
made up the principal features of this
agreeable visit to Jalapa.

Jared is an oddity, drinks no milk and

once in his life, and on that occasion a,

part of his body, to which he became so
attached that he would not allow its re

off. That was years ago;

intendent in the Department of Horses;
as Superintendent of the Mechanical
Department, Mr. J. 0. Meredith, and
in the Needle and Fancy Work Depart
ment that of Mr. G. S. Mower. The
pamphlet is neatly printed, without a
colored .cover, and is devoted entirely
to the interests of the Fair, not a single
advertisenient being introduced into it.
Dickens' Bleak House
Took an immense hold on the public
mind, and yielded its famous author a
handsome revenue. It is our privilege
to sound the praises of a house wvhich
far exceeds it, and had it been the priv
ilege Qf that illustrious Englishman to
have seen this house he might never
have written his "Old Curiosity Shop,"
no, never. We allude to the house of
Messrs. Kingsland & Heath, not the
least of whose attractions is their accom
plished man Friday, in which, the store,
not Friday', is displayed an endless va
riety of rich, rare, beautiful and useful
articles in China, Crockery, Glass, Tin,
Wood, Willow and Iron Ware, Pic
tures, Frames, Lamps, Toys, in short, all
the thousand and one things which help
to make up the sum of a housekeeper's
happiness. These gentlemen have made
a study'of their business, and there is
nothing new and good in their line un
der the sun, that they do not keep.
Their prices are very moderate besides.
