THE CITY BY THE SEA.
Our President-Charleston Market-Sulli
van's Island-The Floral Fair
Satisfying Dinners, &c.
Home again, after an eight days' ab
sence, spent in the city by the sea, the
pleasant experience of which we give
the reader a brief account. We left
Newberry Monday, the 17th, and thanks
to the courteous President of the C. &
G. and L. lines of R. R., who gave the
Newberry crowd an elegant new lan
rens coach, the ride was made straight
through to within a few miles of the
city, a change of coaches being made
necessary in consequence of the axle
boxes not being satisfied with the tire
man's firing fired up on their own ac
count. Who would not have a
PRESIDENT OF ONE'S OWN,
and one so accommodating and cour
teous to his own friends as Mr. Robt.
L. McCaughrin. This stoppage .put us
out of time and in consequence the
hundred and fifty excursionists did not
get in until ten instead of the schedule
time, nine; but the good people of
Charleston had not yet retired to their
various night roosts, and the party were
taken in, some tead. others coffeed, and
those who preferred stronger decoctions
were wined, liquored and beered, at
least we supposed so, our party of seven
unanimously voting for tea. Thanks
to a good and kind cousin, W. F. S.,
who saw us safely housed, and also saw
to our baggage, our minds being at
rest, we soon gave rest to our tired
bodies by seeking "nature's sweet re
storer" in preparation of the
NEXT DAY'S PROGRAMME
of enjoyments. It would tax cur prin
ters at this late day-that on which the
HERALD goes to press-to enumerate
all of the delightful experiences enjoy
ed-only a few will be noted. The
first place visited was
and though many Charlestonians decry
it, we found it abounding in poultry,
fine meats, vegetables, fish and fruits,
among the latter, the rich golden ba
nana hung in the greatest profusion.
This delicious fruit, too, was cheap, and
could be bought at 25 cts. per dozen
and half of that number thrown in for
good measure, and a whole bunch for
$1. Of course the ruralists invested
largely and continuously In bananas.
The retail stores on King Street, the
fashionable and popular promenade of
the ladies, was the next attraction and
was done cheaply, our supply of green
backs being limited; among these nets
made and displayed to catch the unwa
ry countrymen we strolled Into the
"FAMOUS" CLOTHING STORE
managed by our old schoolmate Mr.
Stanhope Johnston; this stora has a
wide reputation, made by its low prices
and its admirable system of advertising
in the News and Courier--a few of the
latter would be appreciated by the
HERALD and no doubt redound to the
good of the "Famous." The next stop
was at the splendid family grocery of
R. S. Cathcart. familiarly known in the
up-country as Bob. It was a pleasant
sight, the tempting array of goods-and
by the way he promised to send the
HERAI.D a card, which we have no
doubt be will do. Then followed
A CIIARLESTON DINNER
at cousin W. F. S.'s, tue recollection of
which warms the stomach at this writ
ing, then Sullivan's Island, with its de
licious breezes from off old ocean, its
tide ebbing and flowing, and one can
not help recalling the words, "What
are thd wild waves saying, brother, the
whole day long." Every visitor to
Charleston goes to Sullivan's Island.
A return, a hasty supper', and then the
Floral Fair. We feel inconmpetent to
do justice on this point, it was
U EAUTIFU'L, CHARMING, DELIGHTFULL.

between were filled with lovely women
and exquisitely gotten up gentlemen.
t16 whole. being lighted with the elee
tric light. Such a bewilderingly beau
tiful scene is not often witnessed, and
our old eyes suffered terribly in gazing
mor,e at the beautiful faces and forms
of the fair promenaders than at the dis
play of Flora. Two nigh4s were devo
ted to the Fair, all that we could spare.
Next followed two days in the country
-on the Cooper river with brother, sister,
nieces and nephews, and meals in the
open air, alternating in sight of the
-dancing waters of the river, and under
Ithe wide spreading live oak, hung with
fits festoons of moss. This was a rare
delight. We would like to mention
-the name of the good friend who drove
us up the shell road to this place, and
who gave us the better part of two days'
-valuable time, but being a modest gen
-tleman and the father of a large and in
teresting family, he begged us not to
Sdo so, and we reluctantly comply. At
his comfortable habitation, our party
ANOTHER OF THOSE DIN~NERIS,
the memory of which is pleasant to
dwell upon. Speaking of dinners, we
feel constrained to give one thought to
that squared up to on Saturday,
it completely filled our cup and the sto
machs of our party, and even now there
is a delicious satisfaction in thinking of
it. After this feast, a ride down Rut
fledge Avenue, through Wentworth and
SMeeting Streets, past the City Hall, the
Court House, rendered notorious at this
time by its illegal election trials, the
rGuard House. St. Michael's Church, and
the splendid residences and lovely gar
(lens, down to Charleston's pride, the
SBattery. in company with Capt. S., the
'efficient superintendent of the City Rail
Way, and we will here express thanks
to this gentleman and to Col. Riggs, the
p)resident of this popular road for cour
tesies extended and an unlimited sup
ply of tickets. The Charleston people
should b. hiappy in being able to feed
and entertaiui their country relatiops apd
friends who subsist for the best part of
their time on fried chicken, so royally.
5We wait for another excursion. But
the wrath of the printer is growing hot,
whbo says we have gone far enough, so
we will conclude by adding that the en
~tire eight days were alike, and as plea
sant as possible. Good bye reader, and
the next time our railroad magnates
put their heads to'gether, and afford the
public an oppcrtunity to excurt cheaply
come and go with us down to the city
by the sea.
~Capt. Andrew H. Wheeler has been
appointed by the Governor Treasurer
for Newberry County. Capt. Wheeler
ie, a resident of Prosperity, is a farmer,
and has been Trial Justice since Dee
24. 1878. At the primary election in
1880 he was a candidate for Treasurer;
- in the first race he and Capt. Whites
- were the foremost candidates, but nei
ther had a mujority. They ran a sc-*
yond time against each other. Capt.

A large spotted hound made his ap
pearance on the- public square Friday
afternoon. From the way he acted it
was thought that he was mad. He at
tacked Mr. J. S. Hait's dog, and bit at it
several times; he tried to bite Mr. J.
H. Ruff's terrier "Gid." A crowd of
about fifty men and boys got after and
chised him first to Mr. J. B. Werts',
and thence to Mr. J. S. Hair's, where
they killed him, having shot him six
teen times. Before corning to town
this dog nad bitten two dogs on Mr. W.
Y. Fair's place. Mr. Fair had the dogs
killed; and Mr. Hair has tied up his
A dog belonging to Mr. W. H. Ed
dy, of Jalapa, ran off Saturday night
and went through the neighborhood at
tacking every dog be came across. He
bit one belonging to Mr. Carr Vance,
one belonging to Mr. F. Z. Wilson, and
two or three belonging to colored men.
He finally tackled a bull dog on Mr. T.
B. Chalmers' plantation, and the bull
dog killed him. Mr. Wilson and the
colored men have killed their dogs that
were bitten, and Mr. Vance has penned
his up to await results. We understand
that the dog bit one of Mr. Eddy's chil
House-breaking and Larceny.
A white man named James Sadler,
who lives near Jolly Street, was ar
rested Thursday night on a warrant is
sued by Trial Justice Fair, charging
him with breaking into the house of a
colored man on Mr. Jno. Neel's place
and stealing therefrom a pair of boots,
a watch, a bat, &c. When arrested he
had on the boots, hat and watch. He
claims he bought them from a colored
When the constable went to his house
to arrest him he closed the door and
threatened to shoot the first man that
entered. After awhile he opened the
door, invited the constable in and told
him he could search. The constable
found that he had kindled a big fire and
burned several articles in it. In the
ashes he found a broken sugar dish and
other broken crockery, and hidden un
der the bed a feather bed that were
identified as property stolen from Mr.
G. A. Mills' house several weeks ago.
A warrant was therefore obtained
against him for breaking into Mr. Mills'
house. He has had a preliminary bear
ing on both charges of housebreaking
and larceny; and has been bound over
to the Sessions Court on both charges.
Mr. Cree, in his lecture Monday
night, stated that the railroads give
$32,000 a year to the Y. M. C. A.
Yes, and these "soulless corporations"
do many other kind and unselfish
things. They carried thousands of tons
of provisions to the yellow fever suffer
ers two years ago, free; they carried
tons upon tons of articles to the Atlanta
Exposition, free; and while the Con
gressional Committee that attended
Garfield's funeral sent in a bill of 1.
700 for wines, champagnes and whis
key, the railroad that carried the sick
President from Washington to Long
Branch at an immense expense and
great trouble, we understand, sent in no
bill. And they do kind things on a
small scale as well as on a large one.
Only a few days ago we saw a poor old
"Confed.," penniless and broken down
in health, begging in vain for small
contributions to pay his fare to a cer
tain city, where he was expecting some
benefit if he could get there. We saw
him again soon after, and he had in his
hand a note which said: Pass --from
--to--, on account of charity.
And the C. & G. R. R. is now offer
ing the citizens of Newberry and Edge
field Counties $1,000 to help auihl a
bridge at a point on the Sailuda eight or
nine miles from the railroad.

Mr. Thos. K. Cree, of New York, the
Traveling Secretary of the Internation
al Committee of the Young Men's Chris
tian Association, visited New berry the
first part of the week. He conducted
a meeting at. the Methodist Church
Monday night, and Tuesday afternoon
and night at the Baptist Church. The
attendance was large, and the meetings
were interesting and instructive. Mr.
Cree is thorobghly devoted to his work;
he is full of enthusiasm without any
tinge of fanaticism, and he is no doubt
doing great good. There is an earnest,
manly sincerity in his talk~s that cannot
fail to impress an audIence favorably.
The following facts may give some
idea of the influence that the Associa
tion exerts in this countr f, and of the
work it is doing: There are in the Uni
ted States one thousand Associations,
with a membership of one hundred.
thousand. These Associations all have
reading rooms, provided with the best
literature, sacred and profane, as well
as the best periodicals and newspapers,
where all young picn arc invited. They
are thus offering an attraction to young
meni that will keep many away from
barrooms and billiard tables and other
places of dangerous amusement.
The railroads of the country pay $32,
000 every year to the Association, know
ing the good that is being done among
the young men who ure in their employ
as well as those in other walks of life.
The influence of the Association is felt
in every p;rt of the globs.
