It's too bad, Sir or Madam, but don't
get frightened. Your hair is falling
off-that's certain. A glance in the
mirror, or an investigating committee
of fingers tell the dismal story. We
won't discuss the possible cause. It is
enough that Parker's Hair Balsam
used now will prevent further de
struction. Is your hair somewhat

the esteem in which as a teacher the
Capt. is held, and secondly a larger and
deeper interest in the cause of educa

WHAT A PROMIN~ENT DRUGGIST
SAYs.-T. F. Fleming, of Augusta, Ga.,
writes: "When I first heard of your
'Cherokee Remedy of Sweet Gum and
Mullein' I thought I would order a doz
en. In less than a week I ordered a
gross, anditu less than seven weeks, as
your books will show, had ordered
seven gross. I only mention to you
this fact to show how it sells in this
city. As a Cough remedy I have never
seen its equal. One bottle sold makes
a customer of it." Taylor's Cherokee

As the South bound train on the C.
& G. R. R. was nearing a sharp
curve on the road between Chappell's
and galudg a man was discovered on
the track. The train was tob near to
be stoppedl in time, and the man made
no effort to leave the track or get out of
the way. As a consequence he was
killed instantly. One who saw him
afterward says the body looked as if
every bone in it had been broken. He
was a tramp who had bben about town
here Saturday and gave his name as
Hayes, said he was from Georgia, and
had walked all the way to Columbia,
S. C. to see a Penitentiary. He had
always wanted to see one before he
died. He was evidently a crank, his
actions here so impressed every 'one.

On Saturday afternoon, the week's
work done, jobs all distributed, proofs
of next week's work taken, sticks laid on
their stands, hands paid off, Ed said,
"pa, ia belie-e I will wcheel it out to Mr.
Sligh's." Such a proposition startled
us, we thought it impracticable, but not
so, Ed, he is made up of the stuff
which knows no fail ; he bade us good
bye and started. We expected to spe
him back again ipi sgme guod map1s

pacetle in the bottoum. Our fears were
groundless, He returned Sunday after
noon, right side up with care, having
made the distance, seven miles, in one
hour and a half's time. When the
condition of the roads are considered,
and the time taken in walking over
bad ploes, we think that he made
good time. This is the first trIp of
that distance ever made by an amateur
bicyclist in Newberry, and we consid
er it worthy of mentioa.

Our Prosperity friends and readers are
under the impression that we have with
drawn the proposition to furnish the
HERALD to clubs of twenty at $1,50
each. We make this explanation : For
vears this club has existed, but latterly
has been allowed to grow into disuse.
A short time ago we renewed it by
notifying our agent, Mr. Bowers, to
give written notice at his office to that
effect. For reasons we care not to ex
plain we withdrelv the proposition,
and Mr. Bowers acted in accordance
with o,ir instruction-the club was
stopped. Since then we have had rea
son to again give our friends the priv
ilege of this favorable rate. The club
now exists and has been running for a
week or two, but with fhis additional
advantage; that instead of requiring a
club to consist of twenty names, it can
be made of fire names onj. This is an
easier way of accomplishing the end,
and better for subscribers. And
further the getter up of a club will be
given an elegant gilt edged copy of
either of the books here named:
Heman's. Byron, Cowper, Milton,
Moore, Hood, Scott, Wordsworth
& Tennyson, Ladies' Book
.of Flowers, Gentlemen's
Guide to Politeness,
Polite Correspondence, Poetry of
Flowers, Fairy Land, Sut Lovin
good, Guy Mainering, Rhymes
& Puzzles, Children of the
Abbey, Don Quixotte,
And further, this club rate is not
offered simply to our friends at Pros
perity, but to every man or woman in
the county, and out of the county,
every one, no matter where, can enter
the lists and secure a most beautiful
book at a very little trouble, and no
This, explanation is due to our
friends through the county,and wetrust

existed between us and them for

The Wizard Concert.
On Monday night was a perfect suc
cess, thanks to the boys who managed
it. "Faint heart never yet won fair
lady," and if their hearts were faint
on taking hold of the Wizard Enter
tainment no sign of faintness was seen.
They took hold of it with a vim and an
energy which carried it right straight
through, and a lesson might here be
learned while will prove of future ben
efit. We have a pretty opera house,
and capable of seating just such a
crowd as was induced to enter it
Monday night, and we cannot see
the reason why it is not oftener
so filled, unless it is that the proper
efforts are not made. Over five hun
dred persons enjoyed the treat fir
nished them this time, and the ex
pression of opinion is universal that
never before was such a splendid en
tertainment afforded. We regret that
this versatile and talented troupe see
reason to change their base and leave
us, and we sincerely hope that New
berry will be in their rounds once
again. The concert was indeed the
best ever rendered in Newberry, and
the gentlemen making up this troupe
are generally and individually artists
in instrumental and vocal music.
Mr. Burt in his character impersona
tion, particularly as Aunt Betsy was
"bconsoling" to us- he or she hoped to
to be to "Miss Cornelia.'? As Farmer
Magee he is unapproachable and laugh
ter exefting. Childs in his character
songs, as were all the others, displayed
equal talent and vocal power. We
have never heard "Rocked in the
cradle of the deep" so well rendered
as on this occasion. Take this con
cert in its entirety we were never bet
ter pleased, and we do hope that it
will be repeated in the near future.

and I will come to you my lad"-in
other wordz, most highly esteemed,
"whistle" when my term expirez, and
I'll respond, and not do as many of
the great unwashed throng do, let you
whistle for it. I see that the Wizzard
oil troupe are gladdening the people
of Newberry, and taking out the kinks
made by old age and infirmities. It is
a splendid combination. Their con
certs are tip top. I hope to see them
agaii. Newton is a trifle dull by
reason of a short cotton crop, but we had
a good wheat crop. Cotton rates from
