Witchcraft, or Lusus Naturae ?
A few days ago a curious freak of
nature came to light on Mr. Bob.
Welch's place. It is a chicken with
four wings, four feet and four legs.
The negroes to whom it belonged, be
ing in mortal dread of witchcraft,
promptly killed the chick, and then des
patched the hen that hatched it, feeling
sure that the devil had been playing
pranks with them. The curiosity is
preserved in alcohol at Dr. Fant's.
A Sociable Social.
A merry party gathered at the Fe
male Academy last Friday evening for
the annual Social. This social enter
tainment is always pleasant because
the young ladies are delightfully socia
ble-so much so that we are tempted
to call it a sociable entertainment.
For, without an agreeable sociability
among the young ladies, the social
features of the entertainment would
be marred; and in order to be really
pleasant, such an entertainment must
have both social and~ sociable qualities.
A Trial Justice Without Peer.
Newberry County has a trial justice
who advertises that he will for the
term of one year attend to all busi
ness intrusted to him, free of charge
in the shape of fees or otherwise. H
has been a squire and justice for some
twenty years, during which time there
was one appeal from his court, which
he promptly "refused to grant." He
has never had the highest regard for
lawyers or book law, but following the
lead of his own common sense, he has
settled many difficulties, and has been
a kind of oracle for his neighborhood.
He now proposes to do free "trial jus
ticing" that the people of his town
.ship may not fall into the hands of in
experienced or oppressive officers.

One man refused to go-he had con
scientious scruples on the subject
would have gone if it hadn't been call
ed a "Party."
The Lawn, which was not a lawn
was enclosed with a circular row o
posts connected with ropes. In th<
center of this area stood a pole, fron
which, at various points, ropes wen
stretched to the limits of the enclos
ure. Along these ropes and aroun<
the circle hung many Chinese lanterns
forming a pyramid of lights. The ef.
feet was striking and the sight indes
cribably beautiful. The lanterns
with pine torches and the glint o!
moonlight threw their radiance ovei
a very picturesque- scene.
The Liberty Hall people, as well a;
their visitors, proved to be of an in
vestigating turn of mind. They trie<
every thing. Beginning with beef. mut
ton, pork, turkey, chicken and tih
best of hash, they passed to ice cream
strawberries and other delicacies, en

Mr. Jno. McCarley was victor.
The cake table excited a great dea
of admiration-the cakes were the inosi
beautiful we ever saw. Many curiou
conceits and quaint designs were fash.
ioned into snowy cake. One was sol<
at auction for $5; the one walked fo:
brought $9. The post office was fre
quented by the young people, wh<
were anxious to get letters from jus

each. There was a lemonade well pre
sided over by a venerable Jacob, win

party broke upi about 2 o'clock ; som'
tired, and others sleepy, but nobod:
disappointed. Receipts about $90.
CHILDREN'S DAY AT TRANQUIL.
The unanimity with which the day
was observed at Tranquil shows eith
er that the members of that connunni.
ty are deeply interested in the Sunda'
School work, or that they are devote<
pic-nicers. The day was a fine out
and it was very agreeably spent. A
a little past eleven, the two school;
formed a procession aind marched 'ntj
the church, which was soon filled. A
the head of the column was a bannel
stating on one side that the school wa:
founded in 1827 by Zaccheus Wrigh
and Abselom Glasgow, and contain
ing on the other side the words of Zac
cheus Wright, "Keep up the Sunda:
School." This banner, which has Cona
good service, having been madle b:
Mr. L. M. Speers some twenty year;
ago, was borne by Win. Wright au<
John P. Glasgow, grandsons of tlzi
founders of the Sunday School. Th<
exercises consisted of singing by th(
school, and addresses by G. G. Sale
Geo. B Cronmer and the Rev. A. A
Gilbert. The dinner was sumptuous
and as it provoked a very animate<
discussion on that day, we will no

the point of emb.ireation at half-past
five, a score or more of bright girl
mutes, of all sizes and types of beau

in beholding such a bevy of happy, in

sparrling eyes, and hands rapidly mov

and convincing as " proofs of holy

the base upon which the whole super

moment might consider himself a meni

a mile brought us to the college, a no

accommodate double its number of in
mates. An early and appetizing sup

spoken for the blind, and in sign lan

pleasant conversation afterwards with
the ladies, including Miss Mamie Cline,
and Miss Ella Shuford, the latter is re
membered as living in Newberry when
a child, and who had not forgotten the
writer, made the day and night a plea
sure long to be thought of.
Next morning Sunday, deliciously
cool -nd invigorating, found me and
the trong cousin out in the atnios
phere, enjoying the early morning
landscape, with its "sweet fields of
living green," and grassy slopes, sup
plemented by a walk to the famous
spring, and then a delicious breakfast,
consisting of tender steak, of charac
ter unknown in Newberry, newly laid
eggs, delicate ham, coffee fit for the
gods, and other concomitants put the
little party in splendid trim for a ride
to Glenn's Spring. This was accom
plished throuh the kindness of Mr.

as of old, his two sons. Miss Jane Ba,

me for the exercises of the afternoon,
which consistedh of a read sermon. andl
prayers both spoken and in sign lan

the reading by signs and explanation
of a Psalm by MIr. Hughston ; this was
written oni blackboards, and had to be
memorized and produced on slates by

pleasure to see this done. Another

sown in the spring, and unfortunately
most of them were sown in the spring,
have been kept back by the dry, windy
weather, and in many places they will
hardly grow high enough for harvest
ing, if it remains dry a few days longer.
As usual fall oats are somewhat better
than spring oats. Corn is backward,
and many planters have been prevent
ed by the dry weather from planting
their bottom lands. Altogether, the
farmers have found this spring most
unfavorable. But we hope that good
rains will give better crops than pres
ent indications seem to promise.
"A Blessing in Disguise."
484 ADELPHI ST., BROOKLYN, N. Y.,
March 29. 1881.
No family should be without ALLCOCK's
PoRous PLASTERS; their healing powers are
wonderful and their efficacy far reaching and
lasting. For years past I have seen and
known them to cure and relieve the most
obstinate and distressing cases of rheum
atism, kidney complaint, bronchitis, neural
gia, lumbago, inflammation of the lungs and
throat, paralysis, asthma, spinal weakness,
and coughs and cold<. In my own case
they have afforded me almost instant and
permanent relief. My friends consider them
an invaluable and speedy remedy for all
kinds of aches and pains. They are a bless
ing in disguise; and no wife or mother
should be without them if she values her
peace and comfort and freedom from nerv
ous exhaustion and other ailments. As a
strengthening plaster, also for backaches
and weaknesses, they have no equal. I have
never yet found a plaster so eticacious and
stimulating, or to give so much general satis
faction. U-ed in connection with BRAND
RETH'6 universal life-giving and life-healing
P'ILLS, no one need despair of a speedy re
storation to good sound health.

If you have been using other Plasters one
trial of ALLOCK's Ponous will convinceyou
of their wonderful superiority. Take no
other so called porous plasters that claim to
be better, they are all frauds gotten up to
sell on the world-wide reputation of the

OF THE SEASON.
Spinmg has been very slow in ptutting
in an aaipearance, but it has
come at last,
And so has our stock
of Staple and Fancy
Consisting of a very nice small selee
tion of dress goods of
EVERY SHADE, PRICE AND
Notions, Hosiery, Gloves, and as for
White Goods and Hamburg Edge
ings, Laces, Trimmings, and
L<adies Fine Neck Wear-, it
is perfectly superb.
From the fact that we had to take from
all the manufacturers whatever
they had left, we propose to
blow our own horn, andi say
right here that we have
not bought all thle goo(ds
in tile market, but we
(10 intend to sell
all of our goods as
low as we can afford, but we cannot
afford to sell goods at less than the raw

OUR HAT STOCK,
And no0w say that it is very- fine. for we
have just had a Baud putt on an 01(1

The trade when in the city will not
lose anything by examiniiing our stock.

To sum tip the matter we cannot sell
goods for nothing for we have to pay
House Rent, Clerk Hire, Inisurance and
