One Trouble Less.
Everybody is aware of the fact that
man is born to trouble. He finds it out
in bovhood while trundling his hoop,
or sh'ooting marbles, and in riper years
trouble sticketh closer to him than a
brother, or a sick kitten to a hot rock.
Oiie of his greatest troubles has been
to get his clothes to fit, or to get a suit
able neck tie. Too nmch shoddy has
been on the market.- Not so now, for
we are assured by Messrs. Cloud &
Smnith that every article in their line is
warranted A 1. We are glad of this,
there will be more smiling faces now
than heretofore. Examine their stock
and be coniniced.

Town Elections.
On the 5th, the Council will elect a
clerk, a street overseer and five police
men. The chief of police will get $40
per month, the other policemen $35
each, per month, and the street over
seer, $30. We do not altogether un
derstand the needs of the town, but
we see no need of five policemen.
One of them might safely be despens
ed with, and the salaries of the chief
and the street overseer slightly in
creased. Jackson's work is worth
more than $30, if it is worth anything,
and the service that Fellers did the
community in clearing up the Harry
Scott mystery was worth his salary.
We don't expect our opinion to'have

Liberty Hall.
MESSRS. EDITORS.-As other neigh

a woman, we of Liberty Hall are wild
over a Lawn Party to be given on the
evening of the 18th, instant, at the
residence of L. P. W. Riser. The
ladies aue getting it up for the benefit
of Liberty Hall church, so you may
know there will be no failure, for what
ever the ladies undertake is sure to
succeed.
The public is respectfully invited;
also the editors of Newberry. The
committee have made arrangements to
take care of horses, if desirable. They
promise there shall be no one disap

thought every body was expected to
wear lawn at a Lawn Party, and con
sequently ordered a lot, to his sorrow.

A Flourishing School.
We have received the first number of
the Educational Quar1erg published in
the interest of the Leesville English
and Classical Institute. It is a neat
and interesting paper of twenty col
umns, edited by the Rev. L. E. Busby
and Mrs. J. G. Etherecge, principals of
the Institute, and handsomely printed
by the Leapharz Bros., of Gilbert Hol
low. Mr. Busby is a christian gentle
uan of high excellence and fine attain
ment, and he has taken high rank as an
educator. He is a native of our coun
ty, and a graduate of Newberry Col-.
lege. A few years ago he went to Lees
ville, a stranger, since that time his
ability, excellence of character and
spirit of enterprise, have impressed
themselves upon the place and the peo
ple, and he has become identified with
the growth and prosperity of Leesville.
is school stands among the best and
miost flourishing in our State, and we
feel great pleasure in his success.

The Kind of Farming That Pays.
Some time ago Mr. J. S. Blalock
gave to a friend, from Texas, a state
ment showing the expenses and prof
its of his five-mule farm last year, and
to his surprise the statement found its
way into the newspapers. Mr. Blalock
is a quiet, unobtrusive .man, without
any disposition to thrust himself be
foi-a the public, or to seek notoriety,
and with reluctance he yielded to the
request of friends and furnished us, for
publication, a fuller account than that
which has already appeared. We are
glad to publish the statement, for we
feel that its effects will not be lost on
those of our readers who.are engaged
in farming.
The cost of- running his fivenule
farm, was about as follows : hire and
board of hands, $1,160; day labor,
$350; hire for picking cotton, 8450;
feed of mules, $375; fertilizers about
$700; repairs, etc., $75.
The receipts were as follows, the es
timate in dollars being ours : On 110
acres he made 107 bales of cotton aver
aging 480 pounds, this at an average
of 8 cents a pound, gives the handsome
total of $4,108.80; 20 Icres of creek
bottom yielded 1,050 bushels of corn,
at 85 cente a bush'el, $892.50; 15 acres
in wheat, 200 bushels, or, at $1.25 a
bushel, g25}; from the oats made on
130 acres, he thrashed 1,700 bushels.
and fed 12 head of horses on the rest
from the 10th of May until the 15th of
November; he puts the crop at 2,500
bushels, or, 40 cents a bushel, $1,000 ;
from of an acre he gathered 200 bush
els of sweet potatoes, which we may
fairly place at $100 ; he gathered 100
bushels of peas, about half the yield of
20. acres, $125 ;..ten tons of hay, $80;
,000 pounds of fodder, $60; 75-bush
els of barley, $93.85 ; 3,000 bushels of
cotton seed, $360; he killed 15 head of
hogs, aggregating 4,000 pounds gross,
which, at 8 cents, gives $320,-he fatten
ed these hogs on 2 acres of chufas,
feeding them some corn, late in the
fall; "surplus" cattle brought $75;
butter, $30. The products of his orch
ard and garden, as well as the expen
ses of bagging, taxes, etc., are not in
cluded in this statement. From these
items, we get the following totals
Cost of running fann, $3,110.00
Receipts, 7,495.05
Net profit, $4,385.05
These figures would be almost ii
credible, did we not know the ch;trac
ter and habits of the man who furnish
ed theu. .Mr.Blalock began withS men,
one 'pli*-boy and one girl, as regular
wanes-hands.. In June one man died
ancadothei- left him.' As the state
ment of expenses shows, he depended
largely upon day labor. He was un
able to eultivate his crop after the
first of July, owing to the unfavorable
ness of the seasons, and he had great
difficulty in picking his cotton ; much
of it remained in the field until this
year, on account of the scarcity of la
bor. These circumstances affected the
results.
He says that while this crop was a
little better than usual, with him large
crops are not uncommon and are not
a matter of surprise. Being asked the
secret of his successful farming, lie
said, "Prepare the soil well, ma
nure well, and cultivate well ; there
is no secret about it." He always ma
nures his corn. Last year, on 80 acres
of his cotton, he used 200 pounds of
Acid Phosphate and 40 pounds of
Kainit to the acre ; and on 30 acres
lie used, to the acre, 200 pounds of
Ammoniated Guano, and 40 pounds of
Kainit. On his corn land he uset ten
or twelve bushels of cotton seed and
0 poands of Kainit to the acre.
In addition ; T wo renters made, on
one-mule farm each, 18 bales of cotton
nd 100 bushels of wheat. Another
renter made on a one-mule farm, 14
bales of cotton and 100 b)ushIels of corn.
Other renters made on a two-mule farm,
2 bales of cotton, 300 bushels of corn,
100 bushels of wheat. and 150 bushels
of oats.
This shows what is in a farm, when
it is run by the right kind of a farmer.
Mr. Blalock farms in the field-lie
sticks to his farm and diives his busi
ness. Farming is much like other call
ings ; there is money in it, .but it can
be got out only by business men in a
business-like way.
We Like all Such.
Modest and unassuming men are pat
terns after own heart, we like to look
at them, like to deal with them, take
them up and down, and s9- over, they
will do to tie to. McFall & Satterwhite
are the salt of the earth, they have the
sivor, they know how to impart it.
They have not bought all the goods in
the United States and Europe, but have
been able to secure a few bargains in
Dry Goods, Shoes and Hate, and are
ready to give the public an opportunmty
to share the benefit with them. This
is fair, and the off'er will be apprecia
ted. Look in on them and see what
they have got.

Taking Stock.
There arc many individuals in this
community, who, though willing are
unable to take stock in the Newberry
Cotton Mill, but they are nevertheless
able to take stock in other enteinprises
which do not require so munch ready
moey. We know of one enterprise
which will aff'ord this class of men a
large amount of satisfaction. This en
terprise has been developed in the city
of Columbia, by one of the most enter
prising citizens of that city-we allude
to Mr. M. L. Kinard, the Clothier, He
has an uncommonly large stock and he
will give v on stock in that stock any
where in *amount from $10 to $50.
Messers. Kennerly and Irwin efficient
ly assist him in the manipulation of
his stock.
Children's Day.
The committee appointed to devise
means for the proper observance of.
Children's Day at Ebenezer Camp
ground on Saturday the 5th, met in
the station church on Thursday morn
ing last. Two sub-committees were
appointed, viz : Messrs. A. J. Kilgore,
Jicob Sligh and T. F.Harmon to prepare
the ground and erect tables ; and Revs.
R. .Smart, and Manning Brown and
T. F. Greneker to get up a progranulne
for the (lay. The children of the town
and parents who have no conveyances
will be taken there in wagons. Bas
kets will be left at the church and be
conveyed from there. It is hoped that
our public minded citizens will furnish*
wagons sufficient for this good purpose.
Let every one attend this who can
possibly do so, and help the children to
have n. gnad day.
Sniffles, what he saw in Charleston.
I am very thin skinned,have the ten
derest feelings, feel all over, and last
week on my retnrn from Charleston
I was so choek fnll of the city by the
sea, and what I sa*, that I felt like a
can of dynamite, ready to burst wide
open ; and when the young foreman
told me the Herald was full up, I felt
ready to hear Gabriel blow his -horn.
It was a cruel blow, and the delay has
proved a serious loss, I have forgotten
much more than I remember. The trip
down furnished but two ineidents
which fastened on my mind, one was
the monotonous cry of the tall young
man, of "oranges, bananas;" the look
that he bestowed upon the passenger:
reminded me of the sick Irishman, who
never said a word for six vweeks in the
month of August but 'wather, wather.'
The only words he seemed to know
were 'orani s, bananas,' occasionally
he would ox. a return trip through the
crowde<l coaches. vary the monotone
by crying 'bananas, oranges.' We felt
for him, felt a nickle in our pocket, but.
that nickle was not 'for Joe,' I could
not encourage himn. What a preacher
he would make, if he used no more
words in his sermons than in his present.
occupation. Some przachers use too
many words. One of my little boys
,once, on being asked how he liked the
new preacher, replied, oh, pa, he puts
too many words in his prayer." Just
so, why I've heard them pray for every
thing except a jack-knife. The other
thing, the constant stoppages to extin
guish the fire in the axle-boxes. The
train was so delayed by this cause, that
my hope of making connection with
the Charleston train went out before
the fire. Reaching Columbia, sure
enough the Charleston train was gone,
but after an hours waiting, a second
train was got. ready, and at 1.15 the
city was reached and a host of friends
found waiting.
Dear old Charleston, how great my
love for you, the very smell of your
escaping gas, mixed with the odors
from dock ind drain which make up a
large portion of your atmosphere sa
lute my nostrils familiarly and not un
pleasantly, for I know that I am there.
It was too late to get more than the
smell and a bed. Early in the morn
ing sounds came floating through my
window: busy life had begun, and milk
carriers, baker boys, vegetable vendors,
fish hawkers, egg perambulators, crab
crawlers, 'petetter' yellers, all were
"going by I tell you." Drawingon my
garments I wonderedwhat hadfbeconxe
of the. old water 'milion' carrier, anti
would his song
"Some are large and some are small,
Just suited to the wants of all,"
be ever heard again. No doubt. he is
gone to the happy hunting -rounds,
"for lie had no teeth to eat the corn
cake, so he had to let the corn cake be."
Some other "old Ned,". will don his
greasy mantle, and Charleston will not
miss him, and her beautiful, queenly
rivers ebb and~flow as ever, and people
will still look with rapture upon her
broad and magnificent battery, her
spacious market, her ..tile roofed man
sions, her splendid crowded streets, her
superb stores, her fine public buildings,
her lovely cemetery, her street cars,
her docks, anu her shipping. These
things will always prove attractive, and
joys forever. Dear old city, I love you,
my eyes.first saw the light of life there,
it was stormy that eventful morning,
"the wind it whistled and the porpoise
rolled," but tn. derly was I reared, I
was neither "..iturdered, ship-wrecked
nor sold for a slave," and "since then
Iv'e sailed through storm and strife
full fifty sumn:ers a troubled life," but
of course if I l-ad not lived through it
all I would not now be a star actor on
the stage of life. I am glad of it.
A barefoot boy have I roamed from
Battery to Line street, and drank the
brackish water from the old pump
which stood a few feet from King st.
Sniffles' feet arec encased in split lea
ther shoes now, and corns are on the
feet, his legs a e stiff, and his tastes
have changed, and there are several
drinks more ag reeable than that water.
I went to the Floral Fair. and found
Newberry largely represented, it was
beautiful and very Floral, it was all on
one floor too, t here were floral horse
heads, a floral clock, a floral arm chair.
a floral guitar, a floral well, bucket and
windlass, a Fl ora McFlimsy, and a be
vy of'other Floras, besides many other
charming Flor il conceits and fancies.
I was nearly ft o:cdl from fatigue. But
I was sustained by the presence of the
beautiful wvomn, I have ever liked
them, and am proud to say that I have
several relatives and friends among the
adorable sex, and there is Mrs. Sniffles,
the fairest of them all. I wvent two
nights.
The Citadel Cadets were on dress
parade:when I saw them. They are
soldierly, and drill already like veter
ans. Orderly Jas. Kinard in commlandl
of one company, seemed proud to be
noticed by h's distinguished friends
fronm home, it could not have been
more to his tat te had he ordered ithimi
self. Silas McCanghrln beamed with
delight, as did Harry Blease, all three
looked like big sun-flowers, and alto
gether lovely.
In the soft t wilight of one evening,
I ;isited a Ma, -field, there were three
other men thu-e. We had music on
the horn and piano. After blowing
onthe horn, the blower left the room.
He went to see a man, it is quite the
thing to see a man between acts. The
others followe.', they were interested.
The individual interviewed had a long
neck and had been gagged by a cork
in his mouth. It took three men to
draw that cork. He was full of spirit,
and imparted r:ome of it to each of the
three. I was not acquainted with that
man and did not go out. The horn
became mellifluous after the relief af
forded the ma:n with the cork in his
mouth.
The fire department is reduced to
science, and b inig a reduced scientist,
I had some curiosity to see how the
thing worked. Twelve o'clock is the
tiie. The doors stand open night and
day, the engine is near the door, the
hose reel behi::d it, the horses in their
stalls to the rear, facing the machines,
they are kept in by chains which fall
down by electric shock, as an alarm is
soundedl; the harness is suspended in
position at the machines. I went ini
five minutes to twelve. Immediately
on the stroke tie chains dropped to the
ground, and the~ three steeds rushed to
their places wiy h an impetus which al
most caused m. ribs to burst. I was
scared, and th ight they would tram
ple me to deati. In a second they are
under the harness, the collar is buck
led, traces hooked, the driver mounts,
a cord is jerked and everything is rea
dy to move. No better system could
be conceived, and I want it adopted in
Newberry. The entire department.
eight in numbc r, practice every day at
twelve.
This is all. Is it not enough.
