An Assistant to Nature.
A man stepped into a drug store the

He had forgotten the word Neutraliz

the system to its natural condition.
Our traveling agent writes us that
Norman's Neutralizing Cordial is very
popular where he has been. He has
no trouble whatever in selling it as
everyone knows it to be the best, most
pleasant and most harmless family
medicine in existence.
Last-Saturday evening Gen. and Mrs.
-W. H. Hunt celebrated the twenty

They had a family gathering which
was attended by Capt. I. F. Hunt and

A Street Display.
One of the most attractive and charm
ing sights to a lady was the display of
lovely prints and tine homespuns in
front of the stoie of D. C. Flynn on
Saturday last. We almost wished that
nature had made us a woman instead
of a man, that we might have invented
in some of the gay patterns. Inside,
too, counters and shelves are piled
with them in like beautiful manner.
The Illustrated World.
The above is the tittle of a beauti
fully printed and elaborately illustra
ted literary paper, published by Jas.
Elverson, Philadelphia, the successful
publisher of that splendid weekly,
Golden Days. The present is the ini
tial number of the World, and we are
delighted with it. Our advice is to
subscribe for it by sending to the pub

Scai city of Cattle.
The butchers say that marketable
cattle in this County are beceming
very scarce, and in buying for market
they are obliged to extend their search
into. Laurens, Union, and Edgefield.
This scarcity is not due to the exisf
tence of the stock law, so much as to
the fact that a great many cattle have
been shipped from this point during
the last few years. Newberry .is fa
mous as a beef-eater, and she may yet
be forced to eat imported beef as well

Godey's Lady's Book makes its appear
ne earlier than usual this month, and also
brighter than usual.1
Its Frontispiece and Fashion Plates show a
decided improvemeur, and its Fashion News,
ogter with the account of the Vanderbilt
Ball in New York City, will be rcad with
interest by the ladies.
The innovation of a corner for gentlemen
n the Fashion Department will be duly ap
preiated, and we dontt not that many of the1
male sex will take a sly peep into that part
of the Fasbions to find out what is 'chic"
for special occasions.

The Rev. James Scott, of Canada,
delivered temperance lectures in the
ethodist church on Thursday and
Friday nights of last week. On Fri
day night he explained to an audience
f twenty-five persons, how a man
ust do in Jacksonville, Florida, when
e wants to get license : He is requir
d to send a petition to the Commis
sioners. The petition must be signed1
y a majogity of the voters in the City,
and each signature must have two wit
nesses. There must be an affidavit
that uio name was obtained by fraud
> bribery. Then the entire list must
e printed in a newspaper, two weeks.
So it is likely that very few licenses
will be granted in Jacksonville.
Mr. Scott says the Marquis of Lorne,
overnor General of Canada, is a pro
hibitionist, though he takes his wine.
The Country Prospering.
A leading grocery merchant of our
town said a few days ago that he had
not sold his first ear-load of corn : that
p to the same date last year, lhe had
sold six or seven car-loads. This1
shows the immense advantage that
resulted to the County from the fine
rops, especially the grain crops, of
last year, and the lesson should not be]
disregarded. In addihtion, the Banki
made clearer collections and was ob
iged to carry over iewer notes last
fall than at almost any time for years.1
The private deposits now amount to
onsiderably more thtan $200,000, and
though the 'Bank is willing to lend, the
demand made by the farmers for loans
is comparatively very light. These
things show that we are tending to
wards a point at which we can live at
home. Look to the grain crop.
We learn that the college autho
rities, with the help of the ladies, ex
ect to hold a strawberry festival
bout the first of May, for the purpose
of raising money fo aid in paying the
small amount still due on the col
ieg building. Prof. Rahn finds this
lebt a very annoying hindrance in his
wi,rk as agent. The people at a dis
tance, who do not .perfectly under
stand the situation here. are afraid of
this debt, and before they give for an
endowment, they want th~e college
building to be received by Synod, free
rmal encumbrance. The citizens
of our towu have always g'iven' liberal
ly to the support of Newberry College
and they are anxious for that institu
tion to succeed. We are sure that
they will gladly do anything calculated
to Induce others to give for endowing
the college. We therefore predict a
large crowd and large success for an*
ntertainment of the kind mentioned,
nd we advocate the strawberry festi
Sniffes at Jalapa.
Jalapa is a right smart chunk of
place. I went there last week, on on
of my periodical visits, and got ther
by the 4.40 express fast train. Pre
cisely at the minute, the entire trai
being hitched to the locomotive start
ed, without blowing or fuss of an:
kind, and made a fine run for nearl;
two miles, when she stopped, I suppos,
to see if any of the couplings had be
come loose. I stopped also, always d<
stop, when there is occasion to stop
I wanted to ascertain the nature of thi
difficulty, if there was a difficulty, any
if it had a nature, but mystery alway:
hangs around railroad troubles, an<
the difficulty in this case was hard t<
find. The conductor was out, engage(
in the same arduous effort, but in hal
an hour he had found it out. Like th<
good little boy, he "tried and trie<
again" until succesful; a lesson wa
here learned, "that there is nothipg s<
difficult but search will find it out.'
In that half hour I variously conjec
tured as to the cause. I thought tha1
the good conductor wanted to gratif
his passengers with a prolonged vieuu

in that locality; then I thought thai
the engineer saw signs of "the wilk
woman," and was afraid to go any fur
ther. My blood grew chilly, but in 3
moment my attention was diverted by
the four year old Sniffles who asked i1
the engine was tired. I told him that
only wagons and buggies got tired, that
some were badly tired before the3
left the manufactory. I had not tim(
to say any more on this subject, for my
attention was drawn to a noise outside
a heavy pounding noise, and looking

were making to dislodge her, and gel
her back to her "lodge in the wilder.

and the rail road men were victorious,
The conductor then came into view,
and cried all 'board, and got aboard
himself, it was my opinion that we all
had been bored for thirty minutes. ]
asked him to tell me all he knew about
the fight, and if the woman was dead.
'What woman," he asked. I explain
id. You ought to have seen him then,
he showed symptoms of disgust all ovei
his face. "No, sir," said he, "there
was no woman in the base, but simply
an aggregated accumulation of red
hot particles of inflamed pine vulgarly
known as cinders, in the stack-smoke.'
He was angry at my insinuation of a
woman being in the smoke-stack. It
would never do to let such a tale get
>ut. . Conductors are proverbially mo.
ml youknow-when on duty-and will
rot tolerate women about the engine.
They are right, for one woman might
demoralize the whole rail road force.
His explanation was satisfactory, and
the smoke-stack clean, we started at
the rate of miles to the hour, and soon
;ighted Dr. Clark's mansion, the lar.
est and most imposing edifice in the
place. Jalapa is not populous, conse
luently men are scarce. Dr. Folk was
there, when not absent he is always
there, and on this occasion he had just
ome in with a brace of squirrels ; W.
D. Sligh r.nother inhabitant had just
eft with a brace of the same. Jalapa

:ime at least, and would be able to
