The Helena Car Shops Enterprise.
There was no public meeting in the
interest of the Car Shops movement
either Thursday or Saturday. Every
body was too busy Saturday to get out.
The Committee met, however, and
agreed to open books of subscription at
once, at the four following places: Of
fice of M. A. Carlisle, Esq.; Office of
0. L. Schumpert, Esq.; Dr. Wm. E.
Pelham's Drug Store; Office of Y. J.
Pope, Esq. The shares were fixed by
the Committee at $25 each. The capi

once for 200 shares, amounting to $5,
Col. J. Wash Watts, of Laurens,
writes to the Charleston News and Cou
rier "that it is really surprising to see
how little encouragement sheep hus
bandry gets from the Press of the State.
No branch of the farming interests pays
as well, and it ought to be encouraged
in every possible way."
Col. Watts is prepared to speak
knowingly on this subject, as he has for
many years paid much attention to
sheep raising. We know a few farmers
here and there that raise sheep, and
they all say that it pays handsomely.
Our farmers should pay more attention
to this branch of industry.
Steps 're being taken for establishing

at his residence, the other at the depot;
Mr. Pope will take one for his resi

one; several other persons have signi
fied their intention to subscribe. After
the Newberry Telephone Exchange is
gotten up it is proposed to connect it
The C. & G. R. R. Co. have offered the

A Boy with a Tail
There is a white boy n,ear Vaughns
ville, in this County, five years old, that
is a natural curiosity. He has a tail
about a foot long, and about an inch in
diameter. Dr. Mayer, Jr., who saw
the Qhild, thinks the formation is an un
developed fetus, and that it came near
being another case of "Siamese Twins".
The formation has bones in it, but there
is no bone at the junction yith the body,
which is exactly at the termination of
the spinal column. It could be cut off
with little trouble and with perfect safe
ty. In this connection, we would add
that Dr. Mayer says the statement made
by a correspondent of the Laurensville
erald that he offered $25 for the privi
lege of amputating it is incorrect ; that
he did nothing of the kind; but, as the
parents are poor, he did offer to amapu
tate it for nothing.
Oft in the stilly night the sufferer
with piles won'dered where he could
obtain relief until he sought and four.d
it in Tabler's Buckeye Pile Ointment,
certainly the best remedy for piles.

The Abbeville .Press & Barnner says;
"Although nearly every farmer is be
hind with the big crops which he has
undertaken, crowds of their mules,
wagons and field hands fill our streets
every Saturday. They come early, and
loaf about daring the whole of the day."
The same is true, in every particular,
of New berry. Our streets are so crowd
ed every Saturday by the colored popu
lation that it is almost impossible to get
along. They stand in large grouips on
every corner; they sit around in gangs
on the curb stones; they hang around
"from early morn till dewy e7e" with
appareptly p.othmng to do, their sole ob
ject seeming to be to pass asyay the day
in perfect idleness. If- time thus lost
could be calculated and summed up it
would surprise the farmers. It makes
a very great difference in the course of

Our Sunday Schools.
We would speak a word for our Sun
day Schools of which there are in this
town no less than six. Are they pros
pering? Do all the children attend?
Alas, no. Two reasons, if no more,
may be assigned as the cause. First,
the negligence of teachers, who make
it a point to attend as irregularly as
possible, and who when they do attend
seldom make any effort to interest the
children. There is no surer way of
getting near to a child's heart than by
showing an interest in it, and when
that is secured, the good seed can be
sown-the great object of the Sunday
School. A punctual attendance, too,
on the teachers' part secures punctuali
ty on the part of the pupil. When the
teacher absents him or herself the child
is sure to follow the example. A faith
ful, punctual teacher will always have
a full class. Second, much of the blame
attaches to parents, who for the most
part have no objection to their children
attending this means of improvement,
but who do not make it a point to see
that they are ready to go and insist on
their going, and who do not whenever
convenient encourage them by attende
ing also. Tbere are scores of children
in this town who do not attend Sabbath
Shool, who we feel satisfied could be
induced to go if the proper efforts were
made. We wish our people would
think of this.

Rev. Prof. Thos. Ward White, of
Mississippi, the recently elected Presi
dent of Laurensville Female College
passed through here on last Monday on
his return home. Prof. White is well
and widely known as an educator both
in this State and in the South-West,
having spent four or five years in South
Carolina, during which time he super
intended one of the most flourishing
Female Colleges in the South. His
wife, an elegant and highly accomplish
ed lady, has many warm friends in
Carolina, both on her own account and
her father's, the intimate friend and
literary executor of Jno. C. Calhoun.
Prof. White's determination is not yet
known, though it is hoped he may be
induced to cast in his lot with the peo
ple of our rapidly developing State.
For July is on our table, ahead of all
others, as usual. We have so often
spoken of this lady's book, as the cheap
est and best, that all wve can do now is
to reiterate that opinion. The present
number is peculiarly rich in embellish
mients. Tbe steel Plate, 'The First
Train,' is one of those charming illus
trations, never seen except in 'Peter
son.' The colored steel fashion plate is
a gem, as 'beautiful as a drgam,' as a
lady at our elbow says. There is a
profusely illustrated article on 'Ancient
and Modern Gardens,' and a prettily il
lustrated love-story, by Agnus James,
'Paste and Diamond.' In this number,
we have the first chapters of a listori
cal novelet, 'The News From York
town,' which is also illustrated, and
which is particularly appropriate, as
this is the Yorktown 'Centennial Year.'
In addition to this, there are some two
score cuts of fashions, work-table de
signs, etc. ;besides a beautiful colored
pattern for a Photograph Frame, in
daises on black velvet, alone worth the
price of the number. Every lady ought
to be a subscriber for this magazine.
The terms are but two dollars a year,
with great reductions to clubs, and hand
some premiums to the person getting
up the club. Now is the time to sub
scribe. A new volume begins with the
July number, but back numbers, to Jan
uary inclusive, can always be supplied, if
wished. Specimens are sent, gratis, if
written for, to persons wishing to get up
clubs. Address, Chas. J. Peterson,

Picnic at Helena.
The Annual ~Picnic of the Marion
Street Church Sunday School of Colum
bia, was celebrated last Thursday at
Helena; the coaches bearing their pre
cious freight of two hundred and fifty
pupils, teachers and friends, with a
wilderness of baskets, boxes, barrels
and bundles rolling into the Newberry
Depot at 9.30. Here as also at Helena
the happy party was largely augmented.
It was hope t have the frolic on the
green sward, but the weather clerk
getting sulky, by permission of the
reigning powers at the Work Shops the
party was kindly taken out cf the rain
iito the large car shop and there made
comfortable. It was decidedly a pleas
ant affair, the dinner being a grand
success, not only as to variety, quality
and quantity, but as to the admirable
management of the committee of ladies
who superintended it. We take infin
ite pleasure in recording their names
as follows: Mrs. S. A. Smith, Mrs. W.
R. Capers, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Burket,
Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Price and Mrs. Gage.
We never saw ladies work more bar
moniously or untiringly, and we give
them our meed of praise. The plan of
giving the baskets into the bands of a
select few was a good one, and in con
sequence there wasn't the least bit of
confusion, no exclusiveness, but one
common, big, generous pool, from
which every ene 1ared alike and abun
dantly, an example worthy of imita
tion. We never saw a better pie nic
dinner, nor as much, nor as nice; each
and every one had a plate, which the
indefatigable committee saw was well
filled, and every one had a tumbler kept
supplied with iced lemonade, while the
fathers and mothers in Israel had be
sides delightful hot coffee. The only re
gret uttered came from under the vest of
the HERALD representative who com
plained of want of capacity and ability
to do it justice, and that the committee
did not have time to furnish supper out
of the abundance left. We are pleased
to say that the crockery and glass ware
were kindly furnished by the Stanley
Bros. of China Hall fante, the Junior
of the firm being present. Altogether
it was a charming affair, and much en
hanced by meeting very many friends.

Fashion Quarterly suggestr. economy on

of t.ie designs of Parisian costumes, it

Art Interchange ; "Lessons in Dressmak,

usual nmel'nge of tales and sketches. The
portion of the magazine devoted more es
pecially to Fashion, gives descriptions not
only of the favorite styles in costutnes, but
also of a T ariety of novelties in other de

Briefly, we heartily commend the Fashion
