Attempt to Burn the Newberry Hotel.
Yesterday morning t. ween eleven
and twelve o'clock an. effort was made
to burn the Newberry Hotel, which
was as bold as it was dastardly. The
fire was kindled in an unoccupied dark
room, and its presence was made
known by the crackling of the flames,
and the smoke gushing through the
transom of the room into the passage.
When the room was entered a pine box
and a split-bottom chair, together with
a pine plank, were in flames. The
box contained the charred remains of
kindling. These articles and another
chair standing against the first, which
was almost consumed, were evidently
brought in by the villain who kindled
the lire, the room having been left
entirely vacant by the proprietor. The
room is easily accessible from the rear
of the Hotel and from the steps lead
ing up to the News office. When the
fire.was discovered, Mr. Chase, the pro
pdetor of the Hotel was absent, his
wife was sick, and the Hotel was com
paratively deserted, most of our citi
zens having been attracted to the rear of
the Court House, where the fire engine
was at work.
There is no doubt that this was a
fiendship attempt to .add Newberry
Hotel to the list of buildings in ruins.
Messrs. Pool and Schumpert have
offered a reward of two hundred dol
lars, and it is to be hoped that the
scoundrel will be apprehended.

ITY OF *EARTH WORMS-A FIRST
. BATE DINNER.
The slowly convalescing convales
cent parted with the reader at Spartan
burg, on the way for Gaffney city. and
reached it at 1.30 Monday. Gaffney
is populated by one thousand inhabi
tants made up of as clever ini, wo
men and boys as can be found in the
Piedmont range. It is a pleasant hill
country, and beautiful for situation.
N otwithstanding : drouth of six weeks
crops look better thn in the low coun
try, and a fine rain which fell two'days
later, has gladdened the hearts of the
husbaudman and made all nature re
I met with a warm reception from
that Nestor of the Press, Mr. E. H.
Britton, and his energetic and progres
sive son, Felix. They publish the Gaff
ney Carolinian, of which Waddy W.
Thompson, Esa., is the accomplishe4i
editor. Several hours were spent in
pleasantly recalling reminiscences of
the past. The elder Britton is in his
68th year, and though complaining of a
break down, is younger than many of
Six o'clock found me seated in a bug
gv with mv' brother-in-law, J. Yost
Metts, baring away o'er hill and dale,
for his farm three miles distant. This
is a new home for him, having only
recently changed his habitation friom
the malarial region of the Cooper riv
er to this upper and purer atmosphere.
I think, he thinks. and'his family think,
that the change was wisely -cot:ceived.
They now have health.
Three miles from the farm, the wa
ters of Broad river, run, leap and tum
ble over the Cherokee Shoals. It is
famous as a fishing place, and a couple
of stalwart farmers essayed to afford
me pleasure by an exhibition of their
skill in seining among the shelving
rocks. It was a bad day for seining,
however, and all the morning was con
sumed in capturing three cats and one
trout. And then it rained, and we
took shelter and dinner in the old mill,
which thirty years ago resotnuled with
the busy hum of life and activity. but
is now given over to silence, decay,
and the sports of the frisky flea. - One
more effort was made to gt a few fish,
but fhe drag was draggy, one only was
taken. This re-niuded me of previous
experiences on Bush anud Saluda rivers
in Newberry county. An adjourn
ment was called, and the party retired
with lowered colors.
The Cherokee creek, which empties
into Broad river, is a bold and turbu
lent stream, and runs by the farm
house only a few hundred yards dis
tant. I felt called to angle. The farm
house was deficient of hooks, one only
could be found, and that was blunt ;
the next thing sought was bait, but in
vain was digging, delving or turning
over Gaffney dirt, not an earth worm
could be found. Such an utter dearth
of worms was absolutely startling. A
white grub was at length nnearthed,
and with this precious treasur., the
only worm which Gaffney could pro
duce, I reached the creek and i.ed,
and lost my only bait at the first #ste.
I returned a- sadder but wiser man. and
spent the succeeding time until my de
parture in penitence.
It was my pleasure to dine last Sat
urday, on my way home e.t the dinner
house of Mrs. McCants at Ninety-Sir,
and I car,:ot resist making brief men
tion of the nicest dinner I ever sat
down to. It was a good dinner, a cap
ital dinner, a various dinner, a combi
nation of excellent viands prepared and
served in the r-arest style. Mrs. Me2
Cants is an artist in the culinar-y art.
I have eaten all kinds of dinners, in the

Dedication of the Orphans' Seminary
Standing two or three hundred yards
ifrom the depot at Clinton are three
buildings dedicated as the home 0
orphans. The structures are three of
the most attractive in the town; but
far more interesting and attractive is
the labor of love carried on within.
Looking from the railroad you see first
the original Orphanage, then Faith
Gottage. then the Seminary for or
phans. The last, built of concrete
cemented. is the handlsomest as well
as the newest and most apacirous of
the three. It is capable of accom
modating two hundred cl:ildr: n. This
building was formally de<licated on
last Saturday. The excreies were
h ld in the chapel of the new Seminary
which seats between two hundred and
live hundred persons. and which was
full of earnest listeners. On enteringthe
chIpel the attention of the visitor is
arrested by a handsome niural tablet
of marble. just to the left of the recess
at the end of the chapel. in which
stands the lectern. The tahiet bears
this inscription: "The Thornwell
Seminarv for Orphans connemorates
the pure a:l loving heart of that most
illustrious man. James Henley Thorn
well, D. D.. born Dec. 9th, 112, died
August 1, 181.
Orphaned in early childhood, but led
up to man's estate by those who saw
his native worth, he was himself ever.
ready to lift up the needy and to share
his goods with others.
His works attest his glorious intellect,
but this Orphanage shall record the
depth of his warm and sympathetic
Freelf ye have received:
An interesting dedicatory sermon
was preached by the Rev. Jas. H. Thorn
well, after which the President, Rev.
W. P. Jacobs,. explained how the work
of building the Seminary had been ac
complished. We were most interested
in this statement. He said there are
now at the Orphanage between forty
and fifty boys and girls, as many as
can be accommodated in the two build
ings first erected. As many as fifty
ofher orphans have applied for admis
sion. Two years ago the board of
visitors felt the importance of pr2enr
ing more anple accommodations, and
it was proposel that a seminary be
built. 'Thce motwy was wanting, but
they began working on faith, as in the
case of each of the other bailding.
The boys began to haul the material
as best they could before a dollar was
contributed. The amount of the first
contribution was fifty cents. given by
the aged widow of the sainted man
whose name the Orphanage bears. On
Monday morning of each week there
was not sufficient money in the
treasury with which to pay the work
men for that week; but the gifts came
in as the work went on, and the hands
received their pay regularly at the end
of the week. The Seminary is com
plete with the exception of a little
painting, and this work costing three
or f it tlibusand dollars has been ae
complished in tvo years. This is a
subIirie 'tAnple of what can be done
by faith. The.capacity of the Orphan
age is considerably enlarged, and the
president is better able to carry on the
humane'work.to which so much of his
life has already been devoted. Mr.
Jacobs has done, and is doing a noble
work, and he richly deserves the sym
pathy tnd- aisstanee of the orphans'
friends. He says, almost-every report
of the treasurer shows an empty treas
my; and'jet these fifty little months
are to be -fed, and. these. fifty little
bodies to be- clotthed.'; Daily tlhe o'ifts
come in anid daily th'e labor of love
goes on-should the giftaceease to comne
the work could not contihue.

the following remarkable placard was
found tacked to a telephone post at
the end of Mollohon Row:

perfectly reasonable one; and they

wished it : but they didn't know it,poor
mortals, and the mills of the "strong
and determine"irnmortals ground slow
ly on ! Ah ! how they must have worked
for twelve months! We fancy that
we can see them taking-slug after
slug of whiskey-the proper nectar of
Gods, with a big "G.," and kindling
their wrath as they think of the fires
to eome-on Mollohon Row. They are:
working for the people; so magnani
mous ! And, as they take patriotic
slug upon drink, they look into the fu
ture and pity, yes, tenderly pity, the
insurance men. How our souls are
weighed down with sadness as we
think of the reprobacy of Newberry!
Then, to think that these little Gods,
with a capital "G.," their only cap
ital, have been walking the streets
of Newberry. and we have been un
able to detect them ! We should
like to hold converse with these
visible Gods, who are "strong and de
termine." If we knew at what office
they expect to get their next mail,
we'd wash and refill our old inkstand,
then get a new pen, then lay aside our
old hat and write:
"Dear Gods (with a big "G'')
You are trumps you are, Drop in
and wet your.whistle-and tell us of
the future. We are as full of questions
as an interrogation point. We want
to know how you expect to benefit the
people by burning Mollohon Row ;
and we would like to know what es
pecial interest you have in progress,
or anything else pertaining to the wel
fare of Newberry. And, you will par
dntepresumption oanerring o
tal, we arc anxious to know what par
ticular, far away realm produces Gods,E
with a big "G.,--and whether you
made your advent upon the streets of
this town from an abode whose name
begins with "B, and ends witht
"R." And, tell us, ye Gods, with,4
a big "G.,'.' as the future stands
unveiled before you, do you see Moli
lohon Row again in ashes ? and dc
you see twvo upright posts with a crose
beam from which is suspended a rope
(known among mortals as a gallows) e
and do you see dangling at the end o
that rope a god, with a little "g.," anP1
a broken neck? .Ye classical Gods ]
quoting Corlolanus, without applieag.
tion, rhyme or reason, tell us of thu(
future. Is Rome really saved ? The:
we are happy ! Maybe ,you are Rc
man gods; no, they never put on th'
big "G." But, what do we see ! Yet
powers! Even the ,big "~G." is-toa
small; for projecting beyond it 'w
atch a glimpse of (ha ! ha ! shall ali t
say it ?) a glimpse of (ha ! ha ! ha ! elci
cuse our levity, but we really cant
help it) we catch a glimpse of the tips
of-of ears ! And as we look upon the
tips of those ears, we plug our eats
with our fingers, for we expect an air
splitting, resonant bray from the Goday
with a big "G." Be generous old fel
lows ; shell off that big "G.," and go
to your homes where your sweet voices
are familiar barnyard sounds."
We say, if we knew the address of
these new-born deities who must not
be "toyed- with any more," we'd
write them a polite ,lctter of interro
gation ; but we do not know their ad
dress, and we must continue in the
common ignorance to which mortals
are heir. The Gods "decrees thus"
in the eleg'ant phrase of the: Gods.
with a big 'G." Don't trouble your
self about any stray Gods that you
may meet ; "let them alone and
they'll go home with their little tails

A Perfect Remedy in 20 Diesm
I am verging on eighty years, and deem it
my duty to sufferiug humanity to say that
my long life is due to BRANDnRT a PILLS
which have been my sole medicine for half a
century. I know the last forty-three years of
my life is owing solely to their use. Your
PpLLs saved me many times after the best
medical skill in several States had given me
up a hopeless. I have bad many converts
to purgation with BRANrDRETH's PILLs,-and
have seen them perform almost miracles of
cure. For chil-en, a few doses have cured
measles, scarlet fever, and whooping cough.
In all female troubles and 'weakness I have
never known them to fail. In adult males I
have known them to cure the worst eases of
dyspepsia, rheumatism, kidney diseases, dys
entry and diarrheaa; even dropsy, paralysis,
and apoplexy have yielded to a persistent
course of BRANrDRETH's PILLS. In fact I
have found them the true Life Elixir.. They
act as continual preventives against the
effects of time, disease, and labor.
