The Review and Insoection.
Adjutant-General A. M. Manigault
inspected the Newberry Rifles at the
Fair Grounds Tuesday afternoon.
There was a large crowd in attend
ance to witness the inspection, and
the company presented quite a martial
and handsome appearance in its uni
form .f black pants, red jackets and
black hats. There were twenty seven
men in line, and the following officers :
Capt. 0 L. Schumpert, and Lieuts.
J. E. Brown and A. C. Jones. Capt.
Schumpert put the men through the
drill and the manual of arms. They
did well, considering the short time
they have had for preparation. Gen.
Manigault made a short address to the
company and complimented it on its
fine appearance, and accepted it.
At night the company went round
to the Newberry Hotel and called out
the following gentlemen for speeches :
Gen. Manigault, Col. Geo. Johr,stone,
Col. Schumpert, Mr. F. A. Schum
pert, Dr. Fant, Mr. Mower, Mr. J.
M. Johnstone, Mr. J. P. Pool. The
responses were brief. Mr. Pool made
the most effective speech of the even
ing. He said : "Gentlemen, come in
and take something." After exhaust

ed. Mr. Stpart took for his te;t, "Wbc
knoweth what is good for a man ir
this life?" Among the good things for s
man in this life the preacher mentionei
the following; a good name, a gooc
conscience, a good understanding,
spirit of contentment, a good provisior
for this life, and a good hope for the
life to come. There are various vices
or sins, that strike at different ones o:
these good things, but drunkenness
strikes at them all, and takes them al
t away from a man. The first organized
effort against intemperance in this coun
try was in 1806: the aim of this effort
was to induce men to abstain from dis
tilled spirits. The next effort was it
t850, its object being total abstinenci
from all itoicatipg liquors. Th<
third effort, begun in 1840, aimed a
legislative prohibition. This effort ha<
so far failed, with the exception of on'
or two States. One cause of its failure i:
the fact the liquor traffic brings in snel
a large revenue to the government

Particularly would we invite our farmer
friends to note the Kemp Spreader and
the Brown and Dan'l Pratt Gins. These
instrument are A 1. and are highly re
commended. The Spreader is just the
thing essentially needed on the farm
where manure is an object, as it not
only saves in labor but doubles its val

to need eulogium on our part.
The Secret of Success.
Unquestionably one of the most remark
able successes of any modern enterprise is
that of jlessrs. H. H. Warner & Co-, of
Rochester, N. Y., proprietors of the cele
brated Safe Kidney and Liver Cure and
other remedies. their tiusin#.ss is enor
nous, and is due wholly to two causes:
First, the unique and powerful newspaper
advertising they are doing; and secondly,
to the real value of their medicines. Thc
former fact proves the importance of the
newspaper columns in the success of any
business, and the latter shows the eager
ness of the public to secure those aricles
be they medicines or otherwise, that pos
seas real merit.

How to Cook Rice.
Rice is becoming a much morc
popular article of food than heretofore
It is frequently substituted for potatoe
at the chief meal of the day, being

latively cheaper than potatoes, oatmea

paring it only just enough cold wate

rice from burning at the bottom of th
pot, which should have a close-fittin

The A. & K., the C. & A., and the S. V.
And the A., N. & C.-in Prospectu.
Col. E. F. Verdery, of Augusta, Ga.,
President of the Augusta & Knoxville
R. R., stopped over in Newberry a few
hours Saturday on his return from Lau
rens, whither be had gone to look after
the work now in progress on the Green
wood, Laurens & Spartanburg R. R.
The HERAL bad the pleasure of a short
conversation with him, and gathered
from him the following facts:
The only work now being done on
the G., L. & S. R. R. is the grading of
the road from Laurens C. H. to the Sa
luda River, under the direction of Capt.
Pearson, the engineer. About five
miles of gra,ling has been done, and
this includes nearly all the heavy work
between Laurens and the river. Col. I
Verdery being asked why he did not
take convicts for this work said, that
two reasons had operated against it;
first, the responsibility attendant upon
keeping the convicts was greater than
the directors wished to incur, and, sec
ondly, they preferred to give the work to
free labor, as the road had already had
a great deal of trouble about convicts.
When work was first begun at Laurens
there was no difficulty in hiring as many
hands as were wanted, but lately the
labor has been shifting and uncertain
a week ago they had one hundred and
twenty, now they have only sixty-five.
This uncertainty in the supply of free
labor had induced the directors tochange
their minds concerning convict labor;
and Col. Verdery was on his way to
Columbia Saturday to make application
for fifty convicts. This number will be
sufficient to keep the mules and carts
going all the time. The road will still
employ free labor also. There is no
thing being done on the Abbeville side.
Abbeville County made no subscription
for the road between Greenwood and
the Laurens line, and the Laurens sub
scription can be used only in Laurens
County. The company will begin work
soon in Abbeville County. and the road
will be put through without delay.
It will be remembered that the A. &
K. R. R. subscribed $25,000 lately to
the Savannah Valley R. R. Knowing
there must be some good reason for this
reperosity, we asked Col. Verdery what
it was. fie said that the subscription
was made on condition that the S. V.
R. R. would make Dorn's Mine (a sta
tion on the G. &. A. R. R., in Edgefield
County) its terminus, and that the con
dition has been accepted. The contract
for grading the S. V. road has been let
to Superintendent Twiggs, of the G. &
A., who is soon to resign his position
as Superintendent and begin work on
his poptract, which is to be cQin leted
in one year. The S. V. R. R. will run
from Andeison, on the Blde Ridge, to
.Dorn's Mine, a distance of fifty-six
miles. This road will form a very im
portant branch of the G. &. A. and be
a large feeder for Augusta, drawing
freight and travel from the line of the
Blue Ridge, as the G. & A. does from
the main line of the C. & G.
Col. Verdery says the Greenwood &
Augusta is doing it good business, that
4ugusta I$ shipping large quanities of
freight to Abbeville, Andelson, New
berry and other points along the Colum
bia & Greenville.
Col. Verdery spoke very favorably of
Newberry and mentioned the fact that
there had always been a very kind feel
ing existing between this section of the
Sate and Augusta. Wie spoke of the
oft-mentionedl project of a road from
Augusta to Newberry and Chester, and
of the defeat of the bill providing for its
charter at the last session of the Legis
lature. (Col. Verdery did not say so,
but we have been informed that this
charter was defeated by Charleston in
fluence.) Augusta, he says, is very
anxious for direct railroad connection
with New berry and'Chester. He says
that such a road is b2ound to be built
wi thn the nezt ten y/ears. It would open
-up a large and prc.sperous section t.o
the trade of Augusta, and -would make
the distsace from that city to New York
forty miles shorter than by any road
now in existence-which is a very im
portant item in this fast age.
A Meeting of the County Agricultural &
Was held in Thespian Hall, at the Court
House, Monday. Fifty members were pres
.nt. Presid,ent Thos. W. Holloway pre
sided, and Secretary and Treasurer G. S.\low
er acted as Secretary of the meeting. The
President announced tbe object of the
meeting to be to decide what is to be done
1with the Society and its affairs. The Secre
tary made a statement of the debts and re
sources of the Society, which, as already
stated in the HERALD, are-Jebts, $2,350;
resources, the grounds and -improvements.
SHe a'lso stated that unider the 1st resolution
adopted at the October meeting, 1881-the
resolution requesting life members and fam
ily-life members to double the amounts al
ready subscri .ed and takes shares for the
same-'Se had received no responses, ex
cept fhom one or two members. He fur~
jther stated thaT wer,e the resolutionl comn
fplied with' b'v all the members it would
raise about $1,600. A resolution was of
fered by Mr. A. J. Gibson to ascertain at
this meeting how mnucb could be raised
at at under the 1st resolution of Octo
ober, 1881. Mr. J. C. Wilson offered a
resohtion to amend the 3d resolution of
October, 1881, so that not only all mem
bers but also all officers and employees of
the Society would be required to pay en
. trance fees and gate money. These two
resolutions were discussed, somewhat in
formally, (ogether. Mr. Alan Johnstone
favored paying off the debt, and leaving
the matter of entrance fees and gate money
-- to be arranged afterwards. Dr. James
McIntosh was not in favor of raising money
.to pay off tlie debt unless there was a pros
-,pect of raising at least three-fourths of the
amount. Mr. T. M. Lake took the same
Itview. Mr. Pope said, the Society must
face'the music ;suit h td been instituted,
dand the Society must either pay the debt
or allow the property to be sold. Dr. Mc
Intosh said that if the property be sold it
will just about pay the debt. His idea was
yto let it be sold by the Court, and let a
joint stock company buy it. Mr. Alan
Johstone agreed with Dr. Mcintosh, but
did not think the present meeting the pro
per one to arrange for purchase at Sheriff's
- sale; that should be done not by the Socie
ty, but by members, and others who chose
. to go into it, in their individual capacities.
Mr. Wilson thought the plan arranged by
Sthe Executive Committee, at.d embodied it
- the resolutions of October, 1881, woulc
succeed if given a fair trial ; the 1st reso
.nlution-dublintg the subscriptions-w ouic
raise $1,6i0, anid the 3d ,esolution-requir
in all members to pay entrance f,- ant
IC ge money-would result in the S.cietyv
reazig at the next Fair Sw~o, or the nal.
eance of the debt Dr. R. C Uarlisle was it
'favor ol letting the property go to sale un
der the suit in Court. He agreed with Mr
ee Alan Johnstonie that this was not the propel
r ocasion for formitng a joint stock company
to Mr. Silas Johnstone said that the difficult
in raising subscriptions is the uncertaint:
[01about the rules and conditions that are t<
be made. He thought the best plan wa
for the-Society to offer the property fu
*sale. Let a joint stock company, com
cosed of whatever members and others tha
rchse to go into it, then comte to the Socie
r ty and make an offer ; the Society as a Sc
eciety cannot form a joint stock conmpany
s r MCaughtin said debt must be paid, o
the debt. The Society can pay the debt
and can then determine about rules. Mr.
W. T. Tarrant was opposed to raising any
subscriptions unless enough be raised to
pay the whole debt. On motion of Mr.
McCaughrin a committee consisting of one
member from each Township was appointed
by the President to take subscriptions and
to report at a meeting of the Society to be
held Sale-day in August, The President
appointed the following Comtnittee: Town
ship 1, R. L. McCaughrin ; 2, A. J. Gib
son ; 3, J. T. Bynum; 4, Dr. R. C. Car
lisle; 5, Dr. J Wm. Folk ; 6, Thomas J.
Maffett ; 7, Jno. R. Spearnian, Sr. ; 9, H.
C. Moseley ; 10, J. D. A. Kibler; 11, P.
A resolution was- adopted directing the
Secretary to keep books open for subserip
tions for shares 12 months from the date of
the Fair of 1881.
The County papers were, on motion, re
quested to publish the pr>ceedings.
Tbe Society then adj.urned to Sale-day

The Insanity Dodge.
James Sudler, white, against whom
there were three indictments for
housebreaking at the present term of
Court, thought to save hiwseii from
the penitentiary on the ground of in
sanity. He was put in jail April
20tb. A week or two after that time
he began to act strangely ; he refused
to sleep or to eat; rolled his eyes
about in an idiotic way and clutched
his hands convulsively together; he
appeared to be in a comatose condi
tion, and totally devoid of conscious
ness. Tuesday he was tried for break
ing into Riley Simpson's house. The
Court requested Mr. Caldwell to
defend him. Drs. Gilder and McIn
tosh gave it as their opinion that the
prisoner was 4bamming and had been

Tuesday he was tried, with Baxter
DeWalt, col., for breaking into Mr.
Geo. A. Mills' house. He still kept
up his strar'ge behavior, and the
Court requested Mr. Pope, who was
defending DeWalt, to represent Sad
ler also. The jury convicted him
again. While he was being carried
to jail some one remarked that "all
that foolishness would be taken out
of him when he got to Lipscomb's
Hotel." This was more than human
nature could bear; his muscles and
his eyes resumed their normal condi
tion, he flew into a rage aod made for
the offending party ; his tongue was
loosed, and while the Constables held
him back he poured out such a volume
of profanity that the atmosphere
about the Court House Square smelt
like burning sulphur. The spell was

Last week's Edgefield Advertiser has
a long letter from Col. Jno. F. Hobbs,
who is now in Australia.
The two Edgefield papers last week
pulished the cards of twenty-eight can
didates; 5 for the Legislature; 10 for
Clerk of Court; 4 for School Commis
sioner; 7 for County Commissioner; 1
for Treasurer, and 1 for Probate Judge.
Brother McLenna, of the Johnston
Monitor, declines to-be a candidate for
County Commissioner. He is right:

is extreinely fine, and he will make ten
thousand bushels.-Edgefield Chronicle.
Tradition says that two brass cannons
were buried in an old well just behind

them.-Abbeville Medium. What can

While at Ridge Spring on Saturday
we had the pleasure of riding through
Capt. R. B. Watson's fine peach and
apple orchard-probably the largest en
terprise of the kind in Edgefield Coun
t. Last year Mr. Watson realized
$2,500 from the sale of peaches, and
if prices hold up this year he will ex
eed that amount. He shipped severi
boxes last week and will ship a large
number of boxes this week. Mr. Wat
son also raised Irish potatoes for the
market and realized handsome profits
from their sales. While Mr. Watsor
does not neglect cotton culture, he does
not allow the old fellow to assume
'tkingly" prerogatives on his plantation
We trust that others, seeing his success
in diversifying, will be constrained t<

The Newberry HERALD says thal
"public and private schools ought to be
kept entirely separate." We rathei
differ with our cotemporary on thi:
score, so far at least as the general rut
of cuntry schools is concerned. It
some localities it may be advantageout
or necessary to have private schools o
a higher order separate and distinc
from the public schools, but our ex
perience teaches us that the only wa:
to make our schools efficient and sac
cesful in sparsely settled communitie
is to combine the private and pubbi
schools, and in many cases the samn
plan is working charmingly in ou
towns and cities. What are the splen
did graded schools of Winnsboro
Chester, and other towns in our Stati
but a combination of the private an'
public schools? They are supported b:
a local tax, which is the private school
and by the State tax, which is the put
li sehool. The public fund alone]i
not .ufficient to run the schools mor
-than three or four months. What ar
we to do then for the balance of tb
time, under the plan of the New berr
rHERALD? Are we to let our childre
;go with only four months instruction
Again, the people pay the school tax.
and why should they not get the ben
efit of it, in assir -g their private
schools throughoa-:Z e country? Can
each community afford to refuse the $200
or $300 that comes from the public
fund to support the local school, and
say, we won't mix private and public
schools? Such a course v ould be fool
ish. The true plan is for every com
munity to run its schools with public
funds as long as these funds last, and
then come to the rally and keep the
schools going for the rest of the time
by private funds. Public school offi
cials are not disposed to dictate or in
terfere, but each section controls its
affairs for the. best Interest of the com
munity. There are a number of schools
conducted on this plan in Orangeburg
Colnty, and they are the successful
ones. The public school system- is a
fixture, and it is wise and best for the
people to utilize it for the good of their
cbildren and the country. Pull to
gether and not separately, and some
thing can be' accomplished. If th.e
people would all adopt this combina
tion plan our school system would be a
perfect suecess.- Orangeburg Times.

Half the business men visited by
newspaper agents and asked for ad.
vertisements consider the newspaper
men as a kind of infliction of Provi
dence, which, like the itch. must take
a certain course before being cured.
We wish to convince all such erron
eos thinkers that they are wrong.
Te newspapers, instead of being a
sort of visitation from the lower
world, is a public necessity, and for
the public good. They,- instead of
dead-beating their way in the world,
live from money bard-earned, and for
which they frequently pay, in one
way or another, two hundred cents for
a dollar.. Business men have made
fortunes, have risen from poverty to
opulence, simply from .the benefits of
the newspapers across their way. The
money the newspapers make is han
died by the men who patronize with
their business advertisemnents. We
have frequ'ently had men tell us : 'We
never advertise. - It's too much like
throwing away money.' Ou observing
their business, we invariably see their
molasses barrel leaking, their dry
goods covered with dust, their sugar
flled with flies, their scatles rusty,
their hands dirty, their finger nails
unclean, their pants patched, their
customers few, and their success a
failure. They hobble along in the
world slowly, and are not the men
who rise from poverty and obscurity
to riches and eminence. Show us a
man who advertises extensively and
we will show you a man who has the
qualities essential to business success.
The advertisements placed in papers
are like the kindheartedness of youth,
*hearing fruit at first and reaching into
the years when age comes on apace.
Then never tell us advertising does
not pay. Drones and ignoramuses
*only advocate such views.
