Norman's Neutralizing Cam
A Great Compliment.
Mr. W. J. Hix, merchant, Fair Play,
S. C., is one of our best customer-s for
Norman's Neutralizing Cordial. We
have no testimonial from him, but con
sider his orders the best compliment
that could be paid the Cordial as he
-certainly could not sell so much if it
did not give satisfaction.
A Fire in the County.
On Tnesday a fire which came near
being very serions, occurred on Mr. J.
- T. Bynum's place, on Enoree River,
near Maybinton. A double negro. cab
in was accidentally set on fire and
wholly destroyed. The wind being
high, tlie fire was communicated to the
gin house which stood at a distance of
one hundred yards from the cabin, and
to the carriage house which stood at a
greater distance. The hands on the
place saved these buildings only by
knocking off the roof of each. They
are near the dwelling house, and it
could not have been saved if they had
*been burned. Mr. Bynum was not
Shooting Affray.
We learn that a shooting affray oc
curred at Mr. Drayton Brown's mill,
on Tuesday, bet ween Cal Cannon and
Dan Lever, 6oth colored. Cal armed
himself with t wo pistols for the ptu-pose
of killing Dan, whereupon the latter
,armed himself with a double barrel
shot gun. Wheni Dan tippeared with
his gun Cal begani legging it in fine
style. Both barrels were discharged
at him, and he received the contents
(shot) of one in his back, but was only
-slightly injared. Cal then turned,
and the tables were turned; Dan began
to doubule quick to the music of pistol
bullets that whistled har-mlessly past
him. It is said that he ran "clean off.'
The Wadlington Will Case Decided.
Tfhe Probate Judge filed his decision
yesterday in the case of Bauskett and
Reid, plaintiffs against the Keitts. lHe
decides that the proof (does not show
that the will exectited by Mr. Wadling
ton was destroyed or suppressed by
the defendants, or that it eve' rme
into their hands; that the presuption
is, that Mr. Wadlington destr-oyedI the
will, and this presumption has not
been rebutted by plainttiffs. The're is
no proof that a duly executed will was
in exister.ce at the time of Mr. Wad
lington's death. He therefore decrees,
"I de':line to admit to probate the will
set forth in the plaintiffs' petition, and
dismiss the petition."
The plaintiffs will appeal to the Cir'
duit Court.
Newiberry Rifles Entertainment.
In point of attendance and interest,
at least, the entertainment given at
the Opera House, Tuesday evening,
for the benefit of the Newberry Ritie-,
was a success. It consisted of vocal
and instrumental mttsic by Mrs. Davis,
Mrs. Bailey and Miss Mamnie McCaugh
rin, and recitations and reading by
Miss Ella Motte and Messrs. Pifer,
Silas Johnstone and Cronmer. In our
judgment the recitations were admir
able, and the reading, barring that
part of which we could not becomingly
speak, excelletnt.
What shall we say of the mutsic ? Its
excellence wvent beyond our powers of
just criticism, arnd it was frequently
applauded to the encore. Commnent
must follow the line of comimendatiotn.
On the human voice, that most delicate
and difficult of musical instruments,
Mrs. Davis plays with consummate
The attention of the audience was
held untirinig till past eleven o'clock.
The receipts were about j25.

"Naval Engagements"
Was played at the Opera House las
Thursday night by the Thespian Club
The opening p>erformance consisted o
three songs : "Rhip on Fire," by Mis
Ray Foot; "Non E Ver" by Mrs. Sait
els ; and "Welcome Pretty Primrose.
by Miss Lelia Rives. This musica
"prologue to the play coming. on
served to whet expectation to its keen
est edge. The play is a good one
farce that is unobjectionable, light b:r
not broad, and vivacious without be
ing too light. It sparkles with repar
tee, and has. withal. a sufficient dasl
of sentiment '.f the nobler kind, t<
give it soul.
The east was good. While the act
ing was creditable at all points, soi
of it was excellent. The audience wa
intelligent and appreciative, but i
was not so large as the performanu
merited, and proper advertising woul
have insured..

George Stephens who was a mem
ber of the party of colored emigrants
that left Newberry for Texas. in Jan
nary, returned a few days ago. He
soon became dissatisfied with Texas,
and began to work his way home. He
had a rough and varidd experience,
and he is inclined to*put New Orleans
down :is the wickedest City in the uni
verse. There he was fleeced of a car
pet bag containing his clothing, and
subjected to other indignities. A
dance was in full blast on Sunday and
that holy day was desecrated without
conscience. George says Texas is a
~iieathen country;" it does not fnr
nish religious advantages such as he
had boen accustomed to. He says the
party soon "got its fill' of Texa's. but
staved there because there was no way
to get back. H las ma(le up his min'd
that Sauth Carolina is a good enough
State to live and die in. Sensible boy.

Spring has been very slow in putting
in an .apealrance, but it has
come at last,
And so has our stock
of Staple and Fancy
Consisting of a very nice small selec
tion of dress goods of
Notion., Hosiery, Glo'ees, and as for
White Goods and Hamburg Edge
ings, Laces. Trimmings, and
Ladies Fine Neck Wear. it
is perfectly superb.
From the fact that wey had to take from
all the manufacturers whatever
they had left, we propose to
blow our own horn, and say
right here that we have
not bought all the goods
in the market. but we
do intend to sell
all of our goods as
low as we cani afford, but we cannot
afford to sell goods at less than the raw
material cost.
We only had a few pairs manufactured
from the scraps that were left, and we
have got up in that way, a very fine
selection of Ladies, Misses and Men's
Shoes, and
Every, pair warranted at
We hiad almost fotg.ot ten to mention
And now say that it is very fine, for we
have just had a Band( piut on an 01(1
Straw Hat, and had a Black Stiff Brim
mueud Hat Dyed.
T1he trade whent in the city will not

Are just lovely, co me and see thtem
To sumr up the matter we cannot sell
goods for nothing for we have to pay
House Rent, Clerk Hire, Insurance and1
Taxes. But if our old1 patrons and the
putblie generally in passing will only
drop in on us, and furnish the wrap
l)ing paper and twine, we will just
throw in the goods and no questions
Yours with care,
