Mr. Jacob Bowers, of Helena. met
with a serious accident Monday night
between Silver Street and Chappell's,
on the G. & C. R. R. He had quit
work and was going home on a lever
car. The two cars, going at full speed,
met in a curve. Mr. Bowers had the
flesh torn from his left thigh, making a
ghastly wound; and his right thigh was
also severely injured. Dr. Mayer, who
dressed the wounds, thinks the bones
are not injured, but it will be a long
time before Mr. B.'will be able to walk
-again. His wounds are very painful.

Fire at Jalapa.
Last Thursday night, 11th inst., the
storehicuse of Mr. Jno. B. Campbell was
burned down. Mr. C. and family lived
in the rear portion of the store. He
had a chill that night, and was awake
most of the time. Between 1 and 2
o'clock he smelled something like meat
burning. Thinking it was meat being
fried by some one in the neighborhood
he at first paid no attention to it. But
the smell became so strong that his wife
went out to see if anything was wrong,
and found the room which he used
for storing bacon, &c., in flames. This
room stood about ten feet from the
store, and burned so rapidly that it
soon caught the store, and little
time was left to save anything, and
very little was saved. Mr. Campbell's
loss is about $3,500. We understand
that he was insured for $1,500. *We
sympathize with him in his misfortune.
The fire was undoubtedly the work
of an incendiary. There had been no
fire in the room in which the fire start
ed that day, nor for some time past.
It was set on -ire on the side next the
railroad, and farthest from the store.
We hope the fiend who applied the
torch will be caught and punished.

Newberry's Cotton Business from Sept.
1878 to Sept. 1879.
HOW IT COMPARES WITH PREVIOUS
The agents at the depot have just fin
ished counting up the number of bales
shipped from this point last year, that
is from Sept. 1st, 1878 to Sept. 1st, 1879.
The result is larger than was expected.
By the flures it will he seen that 1,737
more bales were shipped from Newber
ry last season than the season before. So
that the cotton business here seems to be
on rising ground. Several years ago the
cotton trade here was larger than it is
now. Then a considerable quantity of
cotton come from portions of Lau
rens and Spartanburg that now go to
the latter place-attracted there by the
Air Line Railroad.
We give below a statement of the
shipments for several years:
1873-4, - - - 25,520

We now suggest the idea of making
two Conferences out of the three in
South Carolina, thereby strengthening
the Orangeburg Conference by putting
some of the pastors in the Central into

Our meeting at St. Luke's was a very
pleasant one, much enjoyed by all pres
ent, and was followed by preaching on
Monday and Tuesday.
Prof. Holland arrived Monday after
noon from the Orangeburg Conference
with a good report from tihe brethren
It is hardly yet possible to say what
will be the size of tbe cotton crop, or
even the size of the average man or
woman's pile of money; but it is mor
ally certain that-there will be a pretty
good crop of the former and that the
latter will soon be larger than it has
been for many long months. And one
other thing is also certain, that money
will be spent judiciously and not thrown
away. When anything is wanted it
will be first asked where can it be had
the cheapest and best. To meet that
want Messrs. Kingsland & Heath, of
Columbia, have determined to keep up
with the great change in prices and cir
cumstances and offer their large and
beautiful stock of china, crockery, glass
and other ware at prices which defy
competition. A proof of the pudding is
in chewing the bag. Try them. tf.

FOR THE HERALD.
M1ore About Cuffee's Grave.
MESSRS. EDITORS : There lived in
the neighborhood of Jalapa a noted
'possum hunter, John S. He made
many attempts to catch 'possums near
Cuffee's grave ; but no matter how
hot the trail the dogs would never ap
proach nearer than within about two
hundred Yards of the grave, when they
would suddenly break off. Mr. S.
had been baffled so often in this way
that he determined to wake a final
effort. He was not afraid of ghosts:
did not believe in their existence.
One dark, drizzly night be started out,
taking with him an abundance of fat
pine, a good pistol and one of his col
ored men, named Tom. He said to
Tom, "You take the torch, and I'll
take the pistol. I intend to catch a
'possum to.night in spite of graves and
ghosts and dead niggers." Soon a
trail was struck and this time the dogs
followed straight to the grave and treed
the 'possum in a large post oak-the
very tree on which Cuffee hanged him
self. On reaching the tree Mr. S.
took the light and soon succeeded in
"shining" the 'possum's eyes, while
Tow held the pistol. The 'possum
was on the lowest limb of the tree not
far from the ground. Mr. S. noticed
that Tom was very much excited and
shaking in his knees. He said to
him, "Tom, what is the matter ?'
Tom : "Massa John, I'se afeard Cuf
fee'll fix us ter night; but I'll stand
by yon." Mr. S.: "There's no use to
be afraid; there are no such things as
ghosts. Give me the pistol, and I'll
soon bring that 'possum down." He
took the pistol and fired ; but the 'pos
sum didn't move. He fired the seu
ond, third and fourth time, with the
same result. At the fourth fire Tom
yelled out, "Massa John, for God's
sake, don't shoot no mo'. I'se gwine
to leave dis place. Dat's a spook.
Look how de dogs hang der tails."
He fired the fifth shot, and still the
'possum didn't move. He then said
to Ton, "If you will stick to me I'll
see what that is, as I swore I would
do so before I left home." Tom said,
"All right, Massa, I'll stick to you as
long as dere's a button on my coat."
John took the torch and ascended the
tree. When he got near the object
Tom cried out, "Massa John, stop;
dat's no 'possum ; he look big as a
elephant." Just then the brave John
threw the light at the object, and it
dropped upon the ground with a noise
like a clap of thunder. Torn and tbe
dogs took to their heels and fled like
wild, leaving John up the tree in.the
dark. He could not get away, but
remained fixed to the limb, imagining
himself in. a bad fix. He began to
call on the Lord for help. He said:
"I am a changed man; I believe in
ghosts now." He then called on Cuf
fee to help and spare him this time.
Cuffee's spirit appeared under the tree
with a long rod in his hand. Looking
up the tree he said, "Come down ;
I'll spare you this time on account of
your grandfather, who was kind to me
while I was on earth. But stand till
I give you a piece of advice. When
you left horme to-night you made your
threats, and said you were not afraid
of Cuffee's ghost. I warn you never
again to interrupt my kingdom." Ex
it Mr. S., and never has he been near
Cuffee's grave since.
