THE LIEN LAW.
-The lien law has at last been re
pealed, and on the first day of Jan
uary, 1885, it will disappear from
the Statute books. To many persons
this law has for years been extreme
ly odious, and it has been discussed
and re-dscussed by the General
Assembly, at considerable cost to
the State. The lien law has opened
the avenue for a great deal of fraud
and rascality among our people
and we believe it has had a serious
effect upon that question of morals
which determines for a man whether
he shall pay his debts.
Those who have so industriously
sought the repeal of the lien law,
have obtained their wish, and the
General Assembly will receive their
commendation. For. ourselves, we
are not prepared to say that the
legislature acted wisely in repealing
the law. It was. first enacted for
the purpose of affording a basis of
credit to poor farmers who other
wise had no credit. But its oppo
nents say that it has outlived the
necessity that called for its enact
ment, and that it has had a disas
trous effect upon the farming in
terests of the communities that
availed themselves of its provisions.
We regard the matter in this
light: The law gave the poor far
mer the opportunity to get advan
ces, but it did not require or force
him to give a lien. And no law
can prevent full-grown men from
running into debt. The most seri
ous feature of the whole business is
that the Supreme Court has decided
that a man may mortgage his crop
before it is in the ground. It is
very likely that the man who would
give a lien if the law allowed him
to do so, will give a mortgage for
the purpose of obtaining advances.
The difference is in favor of the
lien-it is much simpler and it ex
ecutes itself at the end.of the year.
The mortgage will not be as simple
as the lienf in its remedies, but will
be more expensive.
Since- we wrote the above the
S.enate has rejected the House bill
repealing the Lien Law; so the law
stands for future discussion.
*THE MOUNTAIN LABORED.
And a mouse is born. The po
litical farce entitled Melton and
Speer or set-em-.upagain-ne?t-term
collapsed is the act of bringing up
the case of McGill and Herron, of
Fairfield on the 13th. Uncle Sams
house supposed to be infested with
rats has been ransacked by his
henchmen and a poor little mouse
only .has been discovered. Really
this is the best play of the season,
and no honest South Carolinian
but is satisfied with the result.
Exeunt Melton and Speer and may

Thoughts Captured as They Fly.
As the late night trains pass anid I
sit and watch by the bed-side of my
little affectionate Tom, pr-ostra'ed from
twenty-one days of typhoid dysenlter-y.
which Dr. C10onoi says is the worst
case he evcr staw-for diversion I will
capture some of the many thoughts
that speed through my mind.
-Thomas' symprtoms are better but he
is still hovering between life and --
Lucie has been quite sick for four or
live days. I feared she would have a
similar case, buit it is passing off and
she is able to be up. We have a kind,
attentive and able phlysician, and I'
hope for the best. So.ne of my good
iriends in Newherry-for I exult to
know I have a host of them there-a -11
say- "You had no business going dlowni
there." Dear Friends, I felt like it
was a necessity. I was not succeeding
flnancially- ini Newberry and but for,
the privation of yoiu- soe&ety and the
watching, wvaiting :und anxiety of the
sic-k room I should be wvell satisfied
here. I have had a good school (forty
one scholars) I get a decent living,
have a very comfortable house, and
will clear sonie money if misfor-tunes
do not come too thick and fast.
Though unable to turn hlimself or
even raise his head, "Little Tom's"
mind has all the time kept clear as a
bell, and he is very considerate lest I
overdo myself in watching and nurs
ing him. H e seem like lhe does not
mean to die unless God has willed it.
The Psalmist David said when the
Prophet gave him his choice, "Let nie
fall into the hands of God." I feel
very much like I am in the hands of a
goo~d and mereiful God, who does all
things well, and believe me it's no
mean feeling, Bob Ingersol and Tom
Payne to the contrary. To feel that
you are in the hands of Him
"Whose hand the lightning forms,
Who heaves old ocean and who wings the
of One who knows the end from the be
ginning, andl who pities those who trust
him, as a father pitieth his children, is
an enviable feeling.
Do not be uneasy about uis dear
friends, we have all the assistance
human aid can give. Mr. Draft-s. Capt.
Lewie Griffith and others have hearts
and purses large enough to keep us
from wanting what human aid can give.
I will wr-ite "Legends of the Rock"
and "Reminiscenses of Moliohon" for
you in series as soon as health and
leisure will permit. I am yours. as

T'o Prosperity and Back.
We took a run down to the active
town of Prosperity Monday afternoon a
week ago, and after a decidedly pleas
ant rest-over of a night, and a scamper
round next morning, took the 1.30
train back. We wanted to tell of it
last week, but our inside was too full
to put in the weeist mite-we don't al
lude to the inside of the man, but tle
"inside" of the HERALD. Prosperity is
a wide-awake, business-moving place,
and has on its public square ten or a
dozen energetic business men who are
barely able to supply the daily demands
made upon them by the people of the
towvn and the surrounding country, in
andi we like to have omiittedl the essen
tial and all-important item or items
embraced in that multiform necessity
Millinery. We would not forget the
ladies and their interests for ever so
much. These merchants are Mecssrs.
Wheeler & Mosely, who rani both a
general nmercantile trade, andl furni
ture store. of huge pioportions, and
who by reason of late advertising have
drawn a considerable trade from New
berry ; then there is Wise & Bro., who
have only recently opened, and comn
plainl already of doing a large and in
creasing business; then, S. T. Barr, A.
H. Kohn, R. L. Luther, J. Bobb, and
Schumpert & Rikard, these keep well
selected stocks of dry goods and gro
ceries. In addition there is Mr. J. L.
Counts in the furniture line, and Mr.
S. L. Fellers, who deals in pills, and
plasteers anid p;erifrs all the roll of a
lever druggist. A live School,where the
sensible fathers send their boys and
girls to be educated, is presided over by
Prof. J. C. Cork in an efficient and ac
ceptable manner. The school would
look thme better for a covering of paint,
but this does not interf'ere with the
amount of good (lone onl the inside.
It is a "dry" town, and should a
man want to wet his whistle, he might
whistle all damy and still go dry.
We were minded by two or three
good friends, who never let a tiing
rest, as long as it will do to talk aboait,
of ouir visit last Summer to the pie-nic
in that neighborhood, and the very un
fortunate expression made by us in a
HERALD notice, that the p)lace was
situated just beyond the "bounds of
civilization." If there be a man or
woman who did not die of indignation
caused by this poor, unoffending jotter
of a pleasant pic-nic occasion, and who
entertained only the highest esteem for
the people whose chicken, mutton and
sweet things he took in, to his or her
we say, offence was not in oul- head or,
in our heart, on was it ig time notice.
Oh dear, we dislike to recall that mel
ancholy mistake. Prosperity, the
town, the country, Jofly street, Somkey
Town, aud every part and parcel of
it, is as dear to us as any part of New
berry county. Please remember this
Well we enjoyed this present visit, as
we have all others, and promise to go
again, and see a peeple whose latch

Capt. Westbrook and Messrs. Whate

have been in our county about a week
looking for laborers, leave Newberry

about 150 Newberry negroes, little and
big. An innocent ancient darkey wants
to know "what all dis means."
Messrs- Cloud & Smith we learn sold
a bill of shoes on Tuesday last to a
country merchant, and consequently
feel considerable elation. This was a
wholesale transaction, and it proves
that they have a stock sufficiently large
to do this kind of business. They can
afford to distribute christmas presents
without stint. Success to this ener
Make Some One Happy.
We remember away back, in the
time of our childhood, the advent of
Christmas ; what happiness followed
our receiving a pocket knife. a ball,
and some candy ; big things to us.
Christmas has been coming ever since,
and the little boys and girls of to-day
are made as happy now as we and the
boys of our day were then. We have
a warm place in our heart for the dear
children, and appreciate the delight
which they will manifest on waking
this christmas morning and finding
well filled stockings. We can imagine
hearing their gleeful shouts, see their
smiles-how happy we are then, how
happy every father and mother. We
think too, of the fatherless and mother
less little ones, whose stockings will
be empty, unless filled by some kind
hand. This thought induced the writ
ing of this paragraph. It is in the
power of every one of us to contribute
something to snake some little one glad
that christmas has come for him or her.
Let us do it, dear friends. Look around,
and hunt up some child, some hard
working, bowed-down woman, and out
of our store give them a christmas pres
ent, that they may feel indeed that
this is a merry christmas for them.
