SECOND ANNUAL FAIR
Newberry Agricultural and
A SPLENDID DISPLAY.
Notwithstanding the bad condition of
the weather, the Fair opened
under very favorable circumstances.
The number of entries amounted to
NTNE HUNDRED AND FIFTY-EIGHT.
The greatest display was in the Stock de
partment, the department which the
country at large is most interested in,
and the cultivation of which is chiefly
calculated to develop general prosperi
ty.-There was a considerable sprinkling
of blooded stock both among horses
and cattle. The display of South Caro
lina raised horses was fine; the colts es
pecially so. The next highest number of
entries was in field crops and vegetables,
-100 entries. As you entered the first
floor you found cotton in bales, cotton
stalks, (some six feet high raised on up
land,) pumpkins of wonderful size,
huge beets, (no "dead beats,") a splen
did collection of second crop Irish pota
toes, sugar cane grown in this county,
that looks like it might have been grown
in Florida, rice grown in Newberry,
cabbages, and many other things too
numerous to mention-all well worth
seeing, showing what wonders can be
accomplished on our lands by proper
cultivation. Up stairs was the display of
household and fancy articles. &c.,
pickles, wines, lard, vinegar, soap, jel
lies, preserves, cake, bread, in delight
fl profusion. And then the fancy nee
dle work-one could linger over this
for hours, and could almost wish he
were a woman that he might make such
The day was taken up by the visitors
in a general examination of the several
departments, and by the officers in or
ganizing the committees. The rain
prevented a large crowd; between six
and seven hundred people wvere present,
a majority of whom were ladies, a thing
rather unusual on the'first day. From
first to last they manifested a warm in
terest in the proceedings, and by their
handiwork and presence contributed
very largely to the st'ccess of the Fair.
dawned heavily as did the day pre
vious, but Newberry and her many
delighted visitors were not by any
means in a like condition. Fully 25,000
people were on the spacious grounds.
That the sun was not visible was a dis
appointment, but not sufficient cause to
dampen the general ardor. Soon after
the gates were opened the rank and
file began to gather and it was not
long ere the spacious exhibition hal
was pretty well filled. About this time
* the clouds began to thin and show
patches of blue, and then the sun burst
forth to the great delight of all, mothers
with their little darlings not excepted
who apprehended for their precious
charges nothing short of a duckiug
ere the day was over. Luckily the day
continued fine and the closing scenes
of this our Second Annual Fair were en
joyed under the influence of fair weather.
It was our pleasure to ramble through
the halls before the outdoor sports be
gan and during the shooting contest
which to many was' terribly long
and gaze long and lingeringly upon
the many beautiful pieces of woman's:
handiwork in the shape of quilts, coun
terpanes, crochet shawls, fascinators,
sacks, pillow shams, lace handkerchiefs,
collars, socks, slippers, infants dresses,
etc., etc.; and from that to the House
hold Domestic Department where our
hurried glance yesterday afforded us
glimpses of bread in various forms,
cakes, wines, and scores of other delec
table table comforts, all the conception
and make up of woman-and we will
be pardoned for asking here what would
we do without woman, and what kind
of bread and sweetmeats would we
have? Happening about while the
Committees were engaged in the work
of sampling we were allowed to taste,
and our judgment is that the specimens
were all as good as can be made.
The first thing of the day was the
shooting match. The balls did not break
easily; some failed to break after
being shot through. With glass balls,
instead of "concrete", the score would
have been better. But the fact still
remains that the shooting was not good,
not near up to the ordinary practice:
The Long Lane Club broke 19, missed
65. The Enoree Club broke 22, missed
62. The Newberry Club broke 27,
missed 57. The latter coming out vic
Was a beautiful day, and the attend
ance was about the same as the day be
fore. If we had only had such a day to
begin with, how much better it would
have been! There would have been
four or five thousand people present, the
gate money would have been almost
double, and the whole affair would have
been much more satisfactory. As it
was, however, it may be called a suc
cess financially, as it certainly was in
other respects. The gate money taken
in amounted to $525, only twenty dol
lars more than at the Fair a year ago;
but the whole receipts, memberships,
&c., were over $1,200. The premiums
awarded amounted to about $600. The
premiums were distributed Friday af
ternoon. The following is the list:

Our County Fair.
Newberry had the best County
Agricultural Society in the State be
fore the war. With such men as John
Beltou O'Neall at its head every citi
zen felt a pride in its success, and the
influence it exerted upon the farmiing
and mnechanical interests of the Couti
ty were very marked. The war breke
up the organization, and it was not till
last year that the matter was revived.
The present Agricultural and Mechan
ical Society was organized the 17th
of August, 1878, with the following
officers: Pres'dent, John C. Wilson;
1st Vice-President, Thos. W. Hollo.
way; 2nd, John McCariey; 3rd, John
R. SpearLlan. Sr.; 4th, W. ). Hardy;
Secretary and Treasurer, George S.
Mower; Executive Committee, A. J.
Kilgore, Alan Johnstone, J. A. Sligh,
S. A. Hunter, and M. Werts.
So short was the time allowed for
preparation that many were it, favor
of not waking any attempt at a Fair
last year ; but it was decided to do the
best possible. Preparations were miade
hurriedly, and the Fair was held in
Mr. Mower's buildings on the corner
of Pratt and McKibbeu Streets, and
the small grounds attached, ou thec
20th, 21st and 22d of November. Its
success far exceeded the most saui
guine expectations. Every depart'
mnent was well represented and the ait
tendance was very good. Over $500
was taken in as gate money alone.
Quite a nunmber .d pr'eziium:s in money
and silver was distributed, withlout
incurring any debt. At the close of
the Fair the officers of the Sowcty,
who h-ad per-formed their duties so
satisfactorily, were re- elected. Eight
acres of land was purcha.sed (n ai
Street, and the Executive Coma.it tee
have wor'ked like beavers for the past
four months in putting the grounds in
proper condition. Unli;ited praise
is due to Messrs. Kilgore and Alan
Johnstone for their self-sacrificing and
constant labors in this work. We
now have Fair Grounds that are uneC
qualled in the State, outside of' Columi
bia, and in some respects are superior
to those. The Fair of 1879 opens to.
day under very favorable auspices
The whole County and surrounding
Counties, to a large extent, are inter
esting themselves in its success.
-<Look here, my fine fellow," said
the lecturer to tile boy who wa dis
turbing the orator by constantly
coughing, "here's a quarter to get a
bottle of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup."
Newberry as it is to-day--Its Business
and its Advantages.
Newvberry is one of the most thrivin:g
towns in the State. With an enterpr-is
ing and energetic population, backed
up by a fertile country and industious
and successful planters, she would long
ago have risen to the dignity and pr-o
portions of a city but for her lack of
rairoad facilities. Her enorgy and
pluck are shown by the manner with
which she has met and overcome mis
fortunes. A fire in 1865 destroyed
nearly half of the bnsiness portion of
the town, but so completely has she r-e
covered thlat the fact is scarcely remem
bered. March 8, 1877, a terrible con
f-agration swept awvay a large por-tion
of the business part of town. Star-ting
at Pool's Hotel, corner of Pr-att and
Caldwell Streets, it laid in ashes every
store on both sides of Pratt Street for a
distance of twvo blocks. At present
there is nothing to indicate the ravages
of that fire except the handsome build
ings that have taken thle places of those
destroyed, and the ascending walls of
what is soon t o be 0ne of theC handusomteSt
hotels in the State. On the 17th of Feb.
1879, another great fire occurred, sweep
ing away the entire block of stores en
closed by Pratt, Caldwell, Friend and
Nance Streets. Already the entire
block is re-built, except the three stores
on the corner, which are now going up,
and the last state of that block will be
far better than the first. Newberry has
had several other fires of less im por
tance; but she seems to be imbued with
the qualities of Phoenix. and rises each
time from her ashes with fresher beau
ty and vigor.
As a cotton mar-ket Newber-ry has no
superior in the interior of the Staxte.
Our lands are admirably adapted to the
leecy stap)le. Some idea of the busi
ness done here in that line may be ga
thered from the following flgures, showv
ing the number of bales slhipp)ed from
this point for several years past, from
Septmber to September:
1873-4, 25,520 1876-7, 19,39)5
[874-5, 25,156 | 1877-8, 17,330
1875-6, 21,855 I 1878-9, 19,067
There are fifty-three store in N.wber
-y, divided as follows: Dry God 12;
rocries 8; Dry Goods and Groceries
:oinhined 6; Confectioneries, Cio"L'-s
22 Lawyers, 6 Physicians, 3 Dentists.
2 Undertakers, 1 Marble yard, and 9
Churches,-6 white and 3 colored. Her
population is between 2,500 and 3,000.
The health of Newherry cannot be ex
celled by that of any section of the State.
Her educational facilities are of a very
superior character. The Newberry
College, under the auspices of the Lu
theran denorniration, but totally unsec
tarian in its spi-it and ;nstruction, is
presided over by a complete and able
Faculty. We have also the Newberry
Female Academy, under Prof. A. P.
Pifer, a thorough instructor, aided by
competent assistanig. Though only an
"Academy", its course of instructon
will compare favorably with that of any
of those female institutions in the State
that bear the pretentious and high
sounding title of "Colleges"
Taking Newberry all round, in her
social, religious, educational and busi
ness advantages, there is not a more
pleasant nor desirable place anywhere.
This is abundantly proved by the fact
that very few ever leave her to hunt
other homes; if they do they soon re
gret it, and in nine cases out of ten
they are glad to return. To a Newber
rian it is emphatically true that "there
is no place like home."
No Remedy in the World ever came
into such universal use, or has so fully
won the confidence of mankind, as

Meeting of the Newberry Agricultural
and Mechanical Society.
The Society met at the Fair Grounds
Friday at 4 P. M., President Jno. C.
Wilson in the Chair. On motion, a
unanimous vote of thanks was returned
to the officers and committees of the
Society for the faithful and efficient
manner in which they had discharged
their arduous duties. On m6tion, the
books and accounts of the Treasurer
were referred to the Executive Commit
tee to be audited. The old officers
were unanimously re-elected-they are:
President, Jno. C. Wilson; vice-presi
dents, Thos. W. Holloway, Jno. McCar
ley, Jno. R. Spearman, and W. D. Har
dy; Secretary and Treasurer. Geo. S.
Mower; Executive Committee, A. J.
Kilgore, Alan Johnstone. J. A. Sligh,
S. A. Hunter and M. Werts. A dis
cussion arose as to the propriety of ex
tending to adjoining counties equal pri
vileges with Newberry county in the
matters of membership, exhibition of
stock, &c., and the subject was referred
to the Executive Committee for consid
eration. On motion the proceedings of
the meeting were requested to be pub
lished iD the Newberry HERALD, New
berry News, and Columbia Register.
The Society then adjourned.

Died Oct. 21st, Mrs. Sallie C. Sloan, be
ioved wife of Dr. Gourdin Sloan, formerly
of Columbia, late of Williamoston. Just as
the day had fled and night had gathered in
all its solemn loveliness, with dear ones all
around watching with "loves own vigilance
the ebbing sainds of life," she went home
to her reward
To that Paradise divinely fair,
The just alone can enter there.
Death for her had no terrors, all was
light, love, joy and peace. Placing her
hands in those of her Saviour, with all te
implicit love and trust. of a regenerated
soul, seeming to say
Lead me all my journey through,
Take mec home to dwell with you.
So young to (lie, so young to sever the
golden love linLs which bound her to life ;
and we mourn for the gentle friend who
has thus passed f:om our midst. But she
has only lain down her earthly crown at the
Saviour's feet, to be crowr'ed anow with the
star-gemmed diadem of eternity. May God
in His great mercy comfort the crushed
hearts of the bereaved mourners. hi av He
comfort in great tenderness and pitying
love him whose sacred privilege it was to
hold the dear hand as the tender feet went
down the valley of shadows into the vast
beyond, and enable him in this the dark
day of his affliction to say
Nearer my God to thee,
Nearer to thee ;
E'en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
