Pssengers No Longer Freight.
The authorities have issued orders to
conduetors of freight trains not to allow
passepgers on their trains under any
circamstances en and after the 15th in

commodations are provided for passen

h#rd on passengers to have to ride on

Another Negro Killed.
Fielding McDowell was killed Mon
day night, the 7th instant, on Mr. P. B.
Workman's place in thi6 County. The
Ceroner's jury returned a verdict that
Simon Johnson did the killing. Job, a
brother of Simon, says he (Job) killed
Fielding,in self-defense. Job and Field
ing had been to town that day, and were
quarreling and fighting all the way
home, both being in liquor. Job split
Fielding's head open with a fence rail,
and Dr. Patton sewed up the wound.
The quarreling was resumed, Simon
and one or two others taking part. In
a short time Fielding was shot with an
Enfield rifle and killed instantly. The
witnesses all testified that Simon fired
the rifle. Simon and Job are both in
jail. The parties are all colored.
The medical fraternity, or rather the
quack nostrum dealers, or to be more
polite the patent medicine men, are re
quested to send down a few tons of their
almanacs, as the demand just now far
exceeds the supply. The colored chil
dren go for them with an avidity truly
astonishing. What they want with
them we can't understand. It's lively
to be about the Drug Stores as the pic
caninnies come by from school, to see
them go for Almanacs, but the Drug
gists don't appreciate it as fully as they
might; and when they are waited on
by a score of little darkeys and asked
for an Almanac, they show signs of im
patience. We were in- at Fant's one
afternoon last week, when a squad of
colored urchins came in with the usual
request-"take 'em, take 'em all," said
the Doctor, who tired of doing a retail
business concluded to close out at one
venture. They did not wait for a sec
ond invitation and in a twinkling the
Doctor's counter was bare, and he
fetched a sigh of relief as he said. "dog
on-'em, that load is off my mind."

there is one important factor crip
pled. One of the first things to be se
cured is the co-operation of all the mem
bers of the church, and others as well
if possible. It is a peculiar service anc
seems to be an endowment of God foi
the exercise of all the people. To hav(
a few persons doing the singing for the
whole congregation is a shame and a
t sin. The pastor has more to de witi
this matter than is generally allowed.
He will probably know who can lead
the singing so as to secure the voices of
all. As to what should be sung, the
pastor or leader of the meeting ougbl

The Methodist Parsonage of the New.
The Methodists of Newberry Circuit
have taken a new departure in the right
direction with reference to their Par
sonage. They have so divided it among
the churches that each church will have,
as it were, a parsonage of one room to
furnish, and to keep in good repair.
Each department will be kept separate;
and the ladies in each church will fur
nish their own department according to
their taste or ability. Some of the
churches have already begun to work
with earnestness and energy-all are
Now as the ladies have taken in hand

We congratulate the good people of
Newberry Circuit, and we hope that
we will soon be able to chronicle the

gurated. Then we will have two neat

the way-to see to the outside work.
That the necessary work will be soon
done by him we have no doubt.
The Sunday Magazine for April.
The present number overflows with
reading-matter to suit all classes, and
which cannot fail .to prove instructive,
entertaining and profitable. It is a
publication which must find a welcome
in every family. The contents are
abundant and varied, but we can only
glance at them. 'How the Poor Folks
Live,' by the Editor, is deeply interest
ing, and the twelve illustratibns serve
to intensify the interest. 'Memories of
Egypt,' by S. K. Hunt, 'Easter and the
Days Before It,' 'Good Friday in
Munich,' 'The Great South American
Struggle,' etc., are among the particu
larly notable articles. In the depart
ment of fiction are, a continuation of
the admirable serial 'Oat of the World,
by Mrs. O'Reilly; 'A Ghost Story,' by
Rev. J. Hyatt Smith; 'For the Coming
of the King,' an Easter Story, by Helen
WV. Pierson. etc. There are several ex
cellent and instructive essays; sketches
of Rev. John S. Macintosh, D. D.,
Bishops Atkinson and Kerr, Rev. Dr.
Chapin, Carlyle, Rev. J. Hyatt Smith,
Rev. Dr. Hoge, etc., etc. The poems
are quite numerous, and of great merit.
A mong the peculiarly interesting fea
tures are 'The Home Pulpit,' 'Hard
places in the Bible,' by Rev. Dr. Deem s,
'With a Smile in It,' 'The Invalid's
Portion and Thoughts for tinrAfflicted,1
-Temperance Talk,' ' International
Sunday-school Lessons,' 'Editor's Port

usually abundant. There are 128

FOR THE HERALD.
- Mssas. EDITORS: Will you please pe,
-mit me space in your valuable paper to ze
. South Carolina right, or at least that par
of South Carolina of which I shall speak
before the many readers of the HERALD
and especially in the eyes of "Palmetto.
Now "Palmetto's" letter in the last week
HERALD reminds me of an incident whiel
occurred the year before the war ended be
tween the lanented Henry L., then Gen
lenniug, of Toonb' old Brig.de, :nd
soldier of the 15th Ga. Regt. Gen. Ben
uing catiie out, as Colonel of the 17t]
G.+. Regt , Toombs' Brigade being comn
posed of the 2nd, 15th, 17th and 20th Ga
Regiments. Of course Gen. Benning neve
forgot the 17th when he was promoted t<
the rank of Brigadier-General, and ono
dark rainy night when we were on a forced
march from the Darbytown road in Vir
ginia to Petersburg, the soldier had .to bt
good grit who did not straggle some. Gen
Benning marched that night in the rear of
his Brigade, and as the stragglers wouk
fall back beside the General's horse ht
would call out, "What Regiment do yot
belong to, sir?" If the soldier said, "to thf
17th Regt., sir," the General would say,
"Well, 17th, it's a bad night to be on s
forced march, but we must do the best we
can; forward on, 17th, to your regiment,
it's just ahead of you." But if the strag
gler unluckily belonged to the 2nd, 15th or
2uth, or some other command, the General
would draw his sword s.nd with an oath,
order him forward, saying- at the same
time, "The whole Brigade is stragglina
back into the 17th till she can scarcely
move at all." Well, soldiers were not slow
to learn "the ropes," ar,d a young Corporal
of the 15th Ga., had found that it was an
advantage to belong to the 17th, and about
11 o'clock, tired and weary, he had fallen be
bind till he was alongside of Gen. Benning.
"What Regt., do you belong to, sir?" ask
ed the General. "To the 17th Ga., Gene
ral," meekly replied the Corporal. "I be
lieve you lie, sir," replied the General. It
being very dark and the Corporal knowing
the General would never find him out, ask
ed, "Who are you anyhow, sir ?" "I aui
Gen. Benning, sir, of the 17th Ga., sir, now
who are you, sir ?" at the same time
drawing his sword and wheeling his horse.
"I am Corporal Bogs, sir, of the 15th," re
plied the soldier, as ie sid over the stone
wall into the field and disappeared in the
darkness, leaving the irate General stand
ing in the road calling to the Adjutant to
have "that man arrested." Now we feel
that we will compare to "Palmetto" ai
least as did Corporal Bogs to Gen. Ben
"Palmet to" claims to have traveled sis
months in Georgia; well we have just com.
pieted a three. weeks' tour ,in Ab,bevilli
County and no other, and as we shall speal
only "whereof we know" we will conflut
our letter only to Abbeville,'and while d~e
have no issue to make with "Palietto" wr
do say that while "Palmetto" was traveling
"six months in Georgia", that Abbevilki
Cou:nty was making the most giganti<
strides to the front, both politically, reli
gion.sly and agriculturally, than she has it
any thf-ee years of her existence before
"Palmetto" saw the Haiman Plow Factor)
in all its bl:ast, and it is no doubt a sigh
worth seeing; but I 'will venture to saa
that there are as many of Haiman's Flows
sold and used in Abbe'ville County as anj
County in Georgia.s They are goo-l Plows
otr farmers know it. . We have been using
largely for the last 12 months the Aver:
Turn Plows and Sweeps, also the famous
Dickson Sweep, as well as Dickson CJottor
Seed. We ahio use in Abbeville licCor
mick's Reaper and Binder, as well as one
or~two others which give good satisfaction
As rolling as our country is we have -morn
than one of G. & G. Cooper's Traction o1
Road Engines which did well in th4
threshing season. We use HalIl's Self
Feeding Gin and Condenser as well a.
Smith's Double Power Press. We have
Smith's Patent Gin Sharpener ; one mat
can whet a gin perfectly with it in 5 hourz
whether he ever saw a gin before or not
ifE "Palmetto" will come over to Abbevilli
just ndw he will see the Simmns' Compos
Distributor at work in almost every field
one hand and horse doing the work of one
horse and three hands, and doing it splen
didl ; he will also see countless number:
of "West's Guano Distributors" putting out
Fertirizers, and if "Palmetto" w ill visit u]:
about the 15th of April he will see that wi
know just how to plant cotton with Cottot
Planters. The people of Abbeville used
last season not less than 250 Rhodes, Black.
lidge and Daw Law Machines. 'Malmetto'
is right when he says these are the stan.
dard machines. "Palmetto" says that oni
man borrowed money to pay for a County.
or bought it on time, we forget whih
but it all amounts to the same, and inl
years made $5,000. Well, the 18th day o
last March (1880), a your.g man 19 year.
old bought Calhoun Township for $25, foi
the Rhodes Cotton Planter, and made cleai
$180 that season, having only a month t<
do the work in, and to our own knowledg4
he will make $500 clear this season. Cat
"Palmetto" find a Georgian who will beal
this young man ? At r. J. L. Brock & Son
at Honea Path, known all over the State a~
large manufacturers of wagons and carri
ages, told us it.. February that they ha
gone entirely out of tne business and were
making a specialty of Rbodes & Blacklidge
Cotton Planters. W. C. Bro,ek, at Due
West, is making Cotton Planters and Comt
post Distributors. James A. McAlister, o
Lwndesville, is mak ing a specialty of Seed
Drills and Compost Distributors, and we
will venture, to say that there nill be not
less than 700 Cotton Seed Distributors ir
Abeville County this year. We desire to
say to "Palmetto" that we are abreast with
the times. We do not know how Newber
ry is, as we have not visited the lower por
tion of the State for 3 or 4 years, but Ab.
beville can make her mile in 2.14, and
there is not much better time yet on tee.od
Now, Messrs. Editors, I do not wish to
be uinderstood,to disapprove of anything
which "Palmetto" has said as regards the
use of labor-saving machines. We say
with "Palmetto"', if you are not using it
get it, its a sure road to prosperity, anid we
endorse all that lhe says on tfat line, but
we set out to prove that Abbeville, at least,
is not so far behind Georgia or any other
Southern State in progressive agricultuie.
nd now, Messrs Editrs, if we have sue
