Usually these startling and frequent-1

comes from the town of Prosprity,
and has been. projected by Messrs.
Wheeler & Mosely. They do not mean
to hurt any one however, we are pleas- 1
ed to state. We cannot do better by
way of explanation than to direct thei
reader to their card. Read it and you
will see what the object is.4
Money in It.
Mr. .M. L. Kinard is a fair uinded
-man, and he remembers that the next
Is Fair Week in the capital, and calls
the attention of all who will attend
-the Fair to his immense stock of Cloth

.ability to rig gentlemen out-in ravish
ing style orthe Grand Ball which
comes off on that occasion. Attend to
what Kinard says, there is money in
it, not only for him but for you reader.

ment for'earrying the mail in So. Ca.,

Perry, wife of Rev. P. Perry, of Cold

of the Balsam has restored the softness,

was young-not a single gray hair left.

that it is a perfectly harmless and

m.ENTMENT OF THE GRAND JURY. V
November Term, 1883. ti
To the Honorable J. H. Hudson, fi
?residing Judge : n
The Grand Jury, by this their final e
resentment, would respectfully show ti
o this Honorable Court : i<
That we have visited the various p
,ounty offices and buildings, and find t
hem generally in good condition. The it
ail is clean and the prisoners well kept a1
and comfortably provided for. a
The County Poor House needs some d
mall repairs, especially upon the ceil- g
ng and upon the chimneys. There y
re now eleven paupers therein, and t<
e are informed this has been the aver- e
ge number of inmates for the fiscal e
rear. The entire cost of this institu- p
ion for the fiscal year just past was
xclusive of clothing and bedding, but t,
neluding keeper's and physicians. sala
ies) $723.12. This makes the weekly a
iost of feeding, keeping and doctoring ti
~ach pauper, $1.26. i
Our County finances appear to 'be i,
~eary growing more prosperous. Ind
.879,; the funded indebtedmiesso>f New-'
ierry County was, in round rumnbers,
6,000. After deducting the fids
mow in the hands of the County Trdas
irer, applicable thereto, there will re
nain of this indebtedness, only about
5000; and this sum will probably be
ntirey paid by one more payment, in
.884.
Besides this, of the ordinary County 1
unds for 1881-82, there was a surplus s
rouoht forward, of about $5,000. This i
hof'd enable our County Commission-d
-s to carry forward to the fiscal year i
883-84 an equal, if not a larger, e
~mount, thus enabling them*to pay all e
lemads against the County, in cash.~ ?
We would suggest that the County f<
Thommissioners erect miore shelving an~d
>ook cases in the offices of the Clerk of s
he Court and of the County Auditor. a
Repairs are needed upon the follow- n
ng roads, viz., on the Long Lane be- i
ween N. S. Crosson's and the David r
wicker place : on the Charleston Road e
>etween T. B. Kennerly's and Indian t
greek : and on the Ruff Road near Dr. ,
. C. Halfac 's and the road from W- t
V. Waidrop s to the Mendenhall mill. n
We would for the third time call at- ]
ention to the dangerous condition ofk
he bridge near Henry Dominick's y
nill; and again urge the building of a e
iew bridge over Cannon's Creek ney ..
E"omaria, on the Charleston Road. A
a bridge over Duncan's Creek on the ~
anie road.
At the February Term, we made a
nost thorough examination into -the
2ounty Treasurer's office, and then
ound it in proper condition. We are
>f the opinion that this examination
ould be made just now, only with the
~reatest difficulty, as the taxes are still
n course of collection. We have
herefore attempted to make no exami
iation in this office at the present term
f the Court.
It appears to us that the office of -
Foseph S. Reid, one of the Trial Jus- a
;iees for the town of Newberry is im
roperly kept ; and the following mat
;ers seems to us to be irregular in his.

ffenses, such as rape, riot, perjury, 1
ggravated assaults, &c., arec allowed
>y him to be compromised a,nd settled
yetween the prosecutor and The defe-n
lants, upon the payment of costs. even
riter the preliminary hearing, and af
;er the defendants have been p)roperly
ound over to this court. 2nd. Fines
ave been imposed upon convicts and I
;en, in part or wholly remitted, by
um. 3rd. Very few of the fines in
yosed have been collected, nor have
he alternatIve sentences of imprison- t
oent been enforced.a
We have been assisted in our investi- I

Upon hearing 'the presentment of

I have been here just one week,-in

o be but yesterday since I left the
[iet of Newberry, so fastly, and so
elightfully old Father Time moves
n. I could stay another week,-with
ut the slightest inconvenience. There
re so many enticements here-the
treets are so long and so clean, and
fford glimpses where they cross of
he beautiful rivers on either side of
he City ; the houses are so various in
rehitecture, some of them so quaint,
iany of them so old; the people are
o kindly hospitable; the matrons are
o pleasant; the maidens so enchant
ig; the boys so fresh looking and
ischievous: the market so enticing;
he battery so invigorating; the gar
ens so inviting and sweet ; the ship
iug so worth-seeing; the truck Yen
ors so amusing; the lager so plenti
al; the fish and oysters so deliciously
resh; the fruit so inviting; the pin

ood things.
Yesterday with a friend and cousin
visited the Charleston Cotton Fac
Dry on Harpstead, of which Gen. C.
rwin Walker is the President. It is.
n imposing pile of brick and mortar,
ud the piles driven into the ground
pon which the foundation was made,
rould drive a countryman mad to at
empt to compute. I was told but I
aiinot keep reckoning of so great a
ile. Under the intelligent guidance
f Mr. Schumway the general super
isor, we were enlightened as to the
rorking of the hundreds and thous
nds of wheels and spindles on the
rst floor. Mr. Geo. H. Andrews
howing us over the three other floors
nd the basement. These gentlemen
rere exceedingly polite and entertain
ig, and gave us two hours of their
aluable time. I feel now, by the
ray, and tell it before it is forgotten,
hat the information gained has quali
ed me to fill any position on our own
iill, and that I shall be happy to be
levated to any of the first class posi
ion, from general manager up to Pres
lent, I don't care which. All that I
articularly care for is to be useful to
he Newberry Cotton Mill. I can run
;. But to return, this Factory is five
tories high, and is 150 by 400 feet wide
nd long, and gives bread to four hun
red operatives, mostly women and
irls. These are of the usual sallow
isaged, sad eyed character. The Fac
Dry is running on full time, and has a
apacity of 30,000 lbs. of yarn, and an
qual number of pounds of sheeting,
er week.
One of the large interests of Charles
Dn s Claussen's bread, cake, cracker

Snot yet completed, but the baking

his Lager Beer factory. The noble
esign of this factorv is apparent to
rie. When his bre"ad clogs the eat

rashed down. and life is saved. Good
r Claussen.
A fitting place of rest is Ed. Perry's
tationery establishment on Meeting
treet. It is presided over by clever
nn-the chief of whom, down stairs,
a young Irishman. Mr. Win. F. Bar
aan. He is as full of business as an.
gg is of meat, and so agreeable withal
bat Sniffies is charmed with him, and
rll hereafter do his city trading in
hat particular line of business with
Lone ,other. Perry is fortunate, for
arragan is a gem of a salesman, and
issed the Blarney Stone to his great ad
antage. I doubt if Perry's lips ever
ontacted with that remarkable stone
-he is too staid to show it, and his
enerable age precludes asking the
uestion. M. Hutson, the efficient
d experienced manager of the typo
raphical department, reminds me
f old uncle Edward, he whose
Fingers were as long as the cane in
the brake"
*nd who is old enough to know where
f he speaks, says that Perry is the
Tand father of the concern. I can't
el which of the two is the older. Hut
on has the advantage in looks, and
s tongue hangs in the middle. I
tope the ladies will forgive me in thus
ing a gentleman credit for one of
heir peculiar attributes. Having es
ablished the assertion that Perry's
tore is a good resting place, and- hav
ug resteil long enough to make this
rief note, and looking pale and fa
iged, Sniffles was invited by the
nan with "long fingers, and who has
to hair on the top of his head." to step
uit and "lager," and take a dozen on
he "half shell," an operation sooth
a to the stomach and which puts the
vle inner man in love with his fel
ow man.
This is a discursive letter.; I feel va
ions and have a disposition to ramble.
I fell in ith Mr. H. Moroso, he of
he Sunday Times, he is a good fellow,
.nd from him Sniffles has purchased a
tal-medmm Liberty Job Press. The
eader will wonder what the genial
;nifies is going to do with a Liberty
Fob Press. I can only say now that
've me liberty or give me death."

Dollars' worth of goods in Orange

yay for them in a few weeks. . Re- f
ently she was "dunned" by the e
nerchant, and replied in an insultingn
etter. A note was then sent to her
y.s colored boy, who was invited I
nto the house. After the boy went V
n, she closed the door and gave him I
i terrible beating with an iron
)oker, and sent word to the mer
;hant to come and try to collect his

his has been reduc'edto $5,000; and I
~he whole TWill probably be wiped ;
