An Assistant to Nature.
A man stepped into a drug store the
other day and called for a bottle of
Norman's "Naturalizing" Cordial. lie
had forgotten the word Neutralizing
and certainly substituted a good one
as it assists Nature in bringing the
.system to its natural condition.

Mr. H. C. Gereke, Augusta, Ga.
highly recommends Norman's Neu
tralizing Cordial as the best, most
pleasant and the most harmless fam

bec'ome the most popular medicine in

certain that they know what they are
doing, and that they will make the
Hot bupper an elegant affair. Do not
forget it good people, young and old,
but turn out in full force and do honor
to the ladies and the feast, remember

a largely paid officer to manage it, and
not as heretofore by a self-constituted

be a success. The HERALD is in line

rhe Japanese Tea Party.
Since the celebrated Boston Tea
Party, few events of the kind have
een as interesting as the Japanese
rea Party and hot supper,*given by the
ladies of the Episcopal Church, last
Friday evening. The occasion fur
nished the novel spectacle of Japan
6'come to town," there being, however
t conspicuous absence of Japanese
nen. The costumes were odd-looking,
ad, we may almost say, Japanese;
hogh about that there seems to be
ame doubt-which must not be too
penly expressed. They presented too
ny salient points for the point of a
eporter's pencil, and they wvere of
~uffiient variety to indicate that
apan, too, is on her knees, meta
horically, of course, before Mrs.Fash
on. We cannot account for the ab
ence of Japanese men other wise than
y the suggestion, thait Leap Year
rings a social revolution to Japan and
emands the men to seclusion.
The tea booth, post office and art
allery were arranged with much taste,
and lent additional charms to the oc
asion. The art gallery, separated
from the surrounding space by screens
and curtains, wa presided over by
iss Wortham, of Virginia, the artist
;ho arranged it. It provoked much
irth and afforded not a little enjoy
ent. Here the lover of art paid ten
ents for the inestimable privilege of
seeing-himself sold. The mention of
wo or three pictures (subjects) will
serve to illustrate the general charac
er of the gallery : "Fireside Scenes"
-shovel and tongs. "The Lay of the
[ast Minstrel"-an egg. "Youthful
[mpressions"-a bundle of switches.
Wie had thought of writing fully and
inutely about other features of the
arty, but a friend who Is au fait in
such matters, whispers that Japanese
ropriety abhors prolixity. So do we.

ent were about $80.

WILD WORK OF THE WINTDS
Loss of Life.
Numbers Wounded.
The following desultory but fearful
accounts of the storm on Tuesday
night, have been furnished us by
piecemeal, and we have no doubt that
there is much behind yet to be heard
from. We trust not however. As it
is the fearfulness is horrible, and be
ing the first and only storm of equal
severity that has ever visited this
Count-, makes it the more serious to
us. Newbeiry neees take her place
along with suff'ering sections of the
North and West.
The wind was fearfully high Tues
day night, beside a thunder storm and
heavy rain kept it company. On the
Hon. Geo. Johnstone's place, known as
the Garlington place, three miles from
town a new building was blown from
Its pillars, and an old log cabin in
which were six negroes was blown down
and destroyed. btrange to say the ne
groes were unhurt, but their fright was
manifest in the screams which followed.
The negro man who occupied the neiv
building, i,n great di;tress searched for
his infant child, which he found sit
on the hearth, which was once in the
house, but now unprotected froln the
wind and rain-out of doors.
We are told that in the viciity of
Boston, the storm was severely felt,
and that much hail fell.
The next damage we hear was at
Jeff Gallman's where all the fencing
was blown down and several houses
unroofed. The course then was East,
at J. B Hellers every house was blown
down and great damage done to fen
eing, &c.
Mr. Win. Heller's dwelling house
was blown down, Mr. Hellar and one
of his children being somewhat injur
ed by falling timbers.
The farm of Colonel Gus Dick
ert suffered severely. His gin house
and all h-s other houses, were blown
down. The dwelling house was not
blown down, but was injured, having
the chimneys damaged. The damage
to Col. D'ckerts place is estimated at
$600. The storm seemed to cross
Broad river at Col Dickerts place, and
our informant says he could see the
appearance of lire, as if a house or
houses were being burned. A negro
man was injured.
Col. J. C. S. Brown reports the
storm severe in his section, accompa
nied with an unusual amount of hail.
The hail was near the size of guinea
eg-s. Fencing all damaged.
'happells demolished. The Cyclone
struck Chappel's at 7 oclock, P. M.,
Tuesday and blew down the Depot,
Post Office, and every building was
entirely destroyed. A freight train
standing on the track was blown thir
ty or forty yards from the track to the
north side. The Superintendant Mr.
Shuford was killed and Mr. Bozeman
had his right arm and left leg broken.
Some five or six negroes who were up
stairs in one of the houses escaped
with some hurts and bruises.
Every house in the place was lite
rally swept away, while every inhabi
tant thirteen in all was more or less
wounded.
Mrs. Simpkins mother of our towns
man L. W. Simpkins, living in the vi
cinity of Chappells, suffered severely
by the storm, having her arm broken
and otherwise injured. We have no
definite information as to the extent
of damage done the place.
We hear that some damage was done
near Ninety-six and also at Silver
Street in this County.
At Mr. Micajah Suber's chimneys
were blown downD, and the dwelling
house damaged; a large dairy was
overturned; and fences and pahings
were leveled with the ground.
St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, our
informant says, was blown down, and
the oak grove in which it stood very
seriously damaged.

As a Lover.
Like most boys when just budding
or when my mustache was just puttinq
out an appearance, I felt my oats, an<
was altogether an important character
I had oodles of fatncies, I was a ladie
man, and I say right here I'd rather b<
a ladies man than any other kind of
man. A man or rather a boy wh<
holds the ladies in such esteem that hi
would rather spend his time in theii
sweet society will rarely ever fall int<
evil ways-the influence they exercis(
over youth is wonderful. A boy whi
is blessed with sisters is a better bo3
and makes a better man than one wh<
has no sisters. He grows up refined
but the other fellow becomes rongh, h<
is wild and "fit for treasons, stratagem.
and spoils." I was blessed with siz
ters. 1 said I had fancies, all kinds o!
fancies. One of these was that ever%
thing in my reach and some thing
not in my reach but needed my reach
ing after them, and they would be
mine. Innocent fancy. How bright
and rose colored the prospect. HoN
sweet every thing looked aud smelled.
What a reacher I was, like a habe. I
ever reached. Most of mv reachi:g at
this period was to get into the afec
tions of the girls, oh how I loved them.
I fell in love with one, in my eyes she
was a paragon, I don't know how she
looked to other eyes. She had a hiteh
in her walk, and she had the advan
tage of me in years, one of her limbs
was a little longer than the oth(r,
which one was the shortest I cannot
now call to mind. but it was jist love
ly to see her (lot and go one, and every
step she took made me think she would
fall, and I was ever on the reach to
catch her. She was freckled too, all
over freckle; when the blood would
siiffu!e her cheek it would impart' an
additional charm to each freckle, abd
then her hair was of that hue which i
seen only on a carrot, in fact she had
a vegetable countenance, in which sat
a turoip nose. She was lovely-suflice
it to say, I loved her. But she loved
me not as the sequel will show-we
walked one evening, we frqnently
did so. In our walk was a seller of
pies and other things. Like most girls
she had an appetite and wanted me to
treat her, but alas I had no money,
and in the most sentimental manner,
"says I my charming honey, I've lots
of love as you may prove, but I ain't
got no money." This should have sat
isfied her, and it did, but not in a way
satisfactory to me, for turning on me
her radish eyes, she said
Young man, tis plain sir,
My love you cannot gain sir,
Unless you've cash to cut a dasb,
Your love indeed is vain sir.
At this like an unfeeling Bohemian
she left me. It was cruel, and my
heart bled-but it stopped bleeding.
This was not my first, nor my last love
however. I was filled with the thought
that there was a "rose in the garden for
you young man." The sweetest period
in the life of a man is the courtia
period. Those periods were very fre
quent with me. My heart was pecu
liarly susceptible to love. The sight
of a girl set me in a flutter. I was al
ways fluttering. Hundreds of times
have I been on the mountain of hope,
and as many times in the valley of
despair, and I could now tell of scores
of instances, in many of which my pas
sion was unrequited, but I have said
enough on this point for one time.
That I survived all these affairs of the
heart, and continued to reach is very
satisfying to me. r still reach and
have fancies, but they are tempered
with other thoughts, the principal of
which is how to get bread and
meat and clothes for the children who
have successively blessed my existence.
Explanatory.
Our Prosperit y friends and readers are
under the impression that we have with
drawn the proposition to furnish the
HERALD to elubs of twenty at $1,50
each. We make this explanation :For
years 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, te
ive written notice at his office to that
effect. For reasons we care not to ex
plain we withdrew the proposition,
and Mr. Bowers acted in accordance
with our instruction-the club was
stopped. Since theai we have had rea
son to again give our friends the priv
ilege of this favornble rate. The cl
now exists and h:.y b een running for:a
week or two, but ith fhis additional
advantage; that i.. toad of requirinig
club to consist of t wenty names, it car
be made of fire nams only. Tfhis is at
easier way of accomnplishing the end
and better for subscribers. Ant
further the getter up of a club will b4
given an elegant gilt edged copy o
either of the books here nanmed:
Heman's, By ron, Cowpcr, Milton
Moore, Hoo', Scott, Wordsworth
& Tennyson, Ladies' Book
of Flow ers, Gentlemen's
Guide to Politeness,
Polite Corre spondence, Poetry o:
Flowers, F: iry Land, Sut Lovin
good, Guy \Mannering, Rhymes
& Puzz!e~s, Children of the
Abbey, Don Quixotte,
Rol,nson~ Crusoe,
&c., &e.
And further, this club rate is nol
offered simply to our friends at Pro.s
perity, but to every man or woman ii
the county, and out of the county
every one, no matter where, can cnte>
the lists and secure a most beautifu
book at a very little trouble, and n<
expense.
This explanation is due to oun
friends through the county, and we tins
that the friendly intercourse which has
existed between us and them foi
twenty-flve years may continue with
out interruption.
The Books enumerated above can be
seen at the HERALD Book 3t.
Time to Stop.
It's too bad, Sir or Madam, but dIon'
get frightened. Your hair is fallin;
off-that's certain. A glance in the
mirror, or an investigating committe<
of fingers tell the dlismal story. We
won't discuss the pe ssible cause. It i
enough that Park.er's Hair Balsan
used now will prevent further de
struction. Is i-our hair somewha
gray too, and crisp ? Alas, yes. Th<
Balsam will give back the origina
color, softness and gloss. Not a dye
not oily, elegantly perfumed, a perfec
dressing. Feb. 1-lm.

Young lovers usually take time to
waist-if it is a small one.
The most reliable agent for destroy

dren and adults is Shriner's Indian
Vermifuge, 25 cents a bottle. Try it.
Every bottle guaranteed to give satis

A rather cynical lady, somewhat of
a flirt, says most men, like colds, are
very easily caught but difficult to get
rid of. Her mistake is apparent. Dr.

however stubborn it may be. Price
25 cents.
This is the shad season, and we for
one are glad-we like shad. We live,
too, along side of neighbors who re
ceive themi in quantities from head
quarters. Messrs. Bowman & Math
ewes and Walter received a box of
beauties lately.
Some Mondays are known as "blue"
Mondays. Last Monday wvas anything
but "blue" to the HEBALD Office,
many subscribers coming forward with
their dues, while there were some who
paid for two years. How cheering and
refreshing is this.
The State Agricultural Society has
effected arrangements for obtaining
several thousand copies of the view of
the State lately published by the News
and Courier. The proper distribution
of this important document will be
productive of immense good, and we
shall soon see the fruit.
It appears to the mind of this re
porter that the novels which hereto
fore were presented to the public in
yellow covers are now produced in
igreen, white, pink, and some even in
isubdued mouse color. The matter un
,der the covers remains unchanged.
I The objectionable covers are removed
and the nublic breathe easier.
Jones says that the clouds of his
early childhood were no bigger than -a

The hugest work ever before begun
in Newberry is our great big cotton
mill. Its complletion is a "consumma
tion devoutly wished." We want to hear
the jingle jangle, the bang the rattle,
and the whir and whiz of its thou
. sands of spindles. In plain words we
want to see the "veels go wound."
,President McCaughrin will be there
ethen, and his pulses will start at that
1 time. To see and hear all this will
ytransport us in memory to the great
Industrial show in Philadelphia, in '76 ;
e. machinery Hall, its miles of belting
tand shafting and its grand Corliss en
;gine, the size, the lhke and the make
e of which never seen before, will then be
- called to mind, and in fancy we will
be there again.
SDo not place old bottles into new
wine, in other words do not murder a,
good old hymn by singing it to a new
fangled tune, as is sometimes done.
The good old fashioned tunes are
t good enough for us, and there is a pe
i culiar fitness in certain tunes to cer
Stain words. We love that fitness ; per
haps it may be called idiosyncrasy on
our part. or we may be termed old fo
i gies, but nevertheless we stand to it.
S"Its natur." Sonme of these old tunes
- are as familiar to us as thre nose on our
t face, and we don't like to have them
Splaced on a back seat. Don't do it,
I any more, an you love us.
