A Singular Case.
Mr. Albert Sligh about ten or twelve

but brief intervals of rest. Drs. Clark

attendance on him, but up to this time
it seems impossible to check the dis
ease or fit, or whatever else it may be
called. We have heard of similar cases,
but have never until now seen one.

It's too bad, Sir or Madam, but don't

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
gray too, and crisp? Alas, yes. The
Balsam will give back the original
color, softness and gloss. Not a dye,
not oily. elegantly perfumed, a perfect

A Physician's Testimony.
I was called to see Mr. John Pear
son who was confined to his bed with
what appeared to be consumption of the
worst form. As all of his family had
died with that dread disease (except
his half brother), his death was re
garded as certain and soon. After ex
hausting all the remedies, I finally as
a last resort sent for a bottle of Brew
er's Lung Restorer, and it acted like
magic. He continued the use of it for
some time and has been fully restored
to health. So far as I could discover,
he had consumption, and Brewer's
Lung Restorer saved his life.

Resolutions of Thanks.

Council of St. Matthew's it was unan
imously resolved that we accept the
kind offer made by'New Hope congre
gation for the use of their Church,
d that the thanks of St. Matthew's
congregation are hereby returned for
the kindn ess shown.
Resolred, That the thanks of the
congregation are returned to Bauskett's
Church for the offer of the use of their
house to worship in, but that we can
not accept, as the distance is too great
for the majority of our members to at
tend services.

The Hot Supper.
We don't remember ever seeing as
elegant a spread of good and nice
things as were prepared on Friday
evening at the Female Academy. It
was a sumptuous and elegant supper,
and exceeded in quantity and quality
all previous entertainments. The la
dies grow into our favor more and
more every day, as every occasion of
this kind exhibits some new grace, or
excellence in the efforts they set forth
to gratify the taste or charm the eye
and the heart of man. The rooms at
an early hour were crowded and con
tinued so until the "wee sma' hours
beyant the twal," or until every appe
tite was satisfied, every taste minister
ed to. The feast proper was not the
the Chief entertainment, for the "flow
of soul" made the hours speed on goi
den wings. Another score is made by
the ladies, and success has crowned
their laudable efforts, the proceeds
amounting to $163. Making a clear
total of $150.
Extract from Minutes of the Board
of Directors of the National Bank of
Newberry, S. C., held Feb. 20, 1886.
Resolved, That in accepting the re
signation of Mr. John B. Carwile, as
Cashier of the National Bank of New
berry, S. C., which his continuous ill
health has forced him to offer, the
Board of Directors would ini acknowl
edgement of the faithful, zealous, and
efficient manner in which the duties of
the Cashier has been performed, ex
press their great reluctance and regret
at having to accept the resignation and
thus sever the relations of the Bank
with an officer who has been connect
ed with it from its very commencement,
and whose ability, integrity and con
tinuous service has markedly contribu
ted to its prosperous career.
And in his retirement from office
would tender to him this expression of
their confidence, esteem and good will,
and express the hope that his health
may soon be restored and admit his
resumption of business for which his
experience so well qualifies him.

More of the Storm.
After passing the Johnstone farm,
the storm struck Dr. J. C. Halfacre's
place, demolishing several tenant and
other houses, also his cotton press.
The oak grove to the east of the resi
dence was entirely destroyed. His
dwelling escaped. Near by at the old
Buzhardt place a fine apple orchard was
swept away. Mr. Isham Kinard living
on Dr. Halfacre's place had his stable
blown away and all his fodder. He
has not been able to find any of the
fodder since. Farther east at the
Wheeler place, the gin house and sev
eral out houses were blown down.
The dwelling was removed from its
foundations but left -standing. The
destuction to timber here was very
great. A large pine near 30 inches in
diameter was broken off half up the
tree and the top was carried fully
three quarters of a mlie.
Mr. Geo. Johnstone says that his
house which was removed from its pil
lars was uninjured except as to spring
ing in the centre, caused by resting on
a large pile of rubbish.
Portions of the timbers of St. Ma
thew's Church,were found across Broad
river in Fairfield County. The dis
tance could not have been less than
four miles, may be more.
A cat blown from Mr. Reid's Store
at Chappell's was found seven miles
away.
At Dr. J. C. Halfacre's a large heavy
trunk was blown across a room, the
windows being closed and only an out
side door open, but not opening into
the room. The pictures hung in the
same room were blown down. He es
timates his damages at $300. On the
same place a tenant house was seem
ingly raised and fell all in a mass
about the colored man who occupied
it. Fortunately he escaped with only
a slight bruise.
A friend tells us that he was caught
out in 'the storm and says he was
riding a very sure footed horse, one
that he had never known to stumble
or fall, that while the lightning was
playing most vividly his horse tell
p rostrate in the road, something un
known before. He says that after
riding some farther, hi~s horse began
turning around and around rapidly
in the road, and that a no very gentle
reminder with his spurs were sufficient
to urge the frightened or bewildered
animal forward. Becoming frightened
hinlself, he leaped from his saddle and
made for a negro house which was
near by. The horse followed easily
when he went before, and leaping into
the door he called to the man to hold
his horse for he wanted to get out of
that thing._______

Explanatory.
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
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, to
give written notice at his office to that
effect. For reasons we care not to ex
plain wve withdrew the propositiqn,
and Mr. Bowers acted in accordante
with our 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
notw exists and has been running for a
week or two, but with This additional
advantage; that instead of requiring a
club to consist of twenty names, it can
be made of five names onlyJ. 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 Mannering, Rhymes
& Puzzles, Children of the
Abbey, Don Quixotte,
Robinson Crusoe,
* &c., &c.
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
expense.
This explanation is due to our
friends through the county, and we trust
that the friendly intercourse which has
existed between us and them for
twenty-five years may continue with-.
out interruption.
The Books enumerated above can be

A kind of olla podrida; much in lit
tle ; Tom Toddy like, bfg head, little
body make up this week's text. I am
pleased that the paper in whose swel
fare I am so deeply interested is offer
ed by its proprietor to clubs of five at
$1,50 each, and an elegantly bound
copy of the Poets, and other equally
handsome prose works to the getter
up of each and every club. This is a
liberal offer, and 'one which must be
highly appreciated. Besides this a
copy of the HERALD'S artistic Alma
nac-itself worth three month's sub
scription to the paper, to every single
single subscriber. Think of it reader !
and then say no more that there is no
thing new under the Sun-this is cer
tainly new-a newness so incompora
bly bright that its lustre will be reflec
ted far and near. Behind these gifts,
this generous hearted editor has a num
ber of strikingly beautiful steel engra
vings, which are held in reserve, and
will next follow. Glorious isn't it?
So happy did I feel on the strength of
all this that I took the train Wednes
day for Columbia, I wanted more room
to spread myself in.
Tne first thing that struck mc there,
was the blow that struck Desportes &
Edmunds (it did not hurt me as bad as
it did them,) in the breaking of one of
their huge window lights. The two,
in the store being prepared for the
reception of M. L. Kinard's magnifi
cent stock of Clothing, had already
been fitted into place, and two in the
side designed for the first named gen
tlemen had likewise found a habita
tion. So far so good; all was serene.
The placing of the:c elegant lights
quite naturally attracted large crowds
of witnesses, and on the successf ul issue
to the four the crowds began to de
minish, the interest subsided, a few
only remained to witness the opening
of box No. 5. When this was done,
the glass was found to be broken. A
sad breaking. These glasses are each
8 x 10 feet in size. with a thickness of
a half inch, and cost $135,00. Gee
ohillikins what a cost for a pane of
glass-What a hurt to break it. This
store room will be the pride of, and an
ornament to Columbia, and Shiver's old
store will be remembered only as a
thing of the past. I think, however,
that the other-Kinard's-is far more
attractive and beautiful, and my ad
vice to Kinard is that he employ some
dexterous hand to hoop him, Kenue
dy and irwin, with first class ties, to
keep them from bursting. Their pride
may otherwise cause them to have a
fall. Hoop them securely. Speaking
of pride-C. F. Jackson perhaps will
be wise to have the same service done
for him. Since his trip California-wise,
his talk of the millions of that peo
ple is refreshing to the listener. He
is perfectly posted on the notable fea
tures and prominent citizens of that
growing country, but he forgets not
one time the store of which hc is so
proud, and the fact that the system he
has adopted has worked him success
that system is a cash one. He deviates
not a mite from it, and the consequence
is that he has cause to be proud. I
think the safest plan will be to hoop
him.
Do not be surprised reader when I
inform you that I have purchased a
dog-a bull pup-and that I repose
confidencein that dog. I loved dogs
when I was a boy, but after growing
up my love changed to' a perfect in
difference, almost hate. This dog
though is a good dog, he neither barks
nor bites, nor does he eat, and for the
purpose he is designed-that is an edi
tors dog, 1 thiaik him a perfect sine
qua non. Editors you are aware can
hardly feed themselves. I say that I
lost my love for the noble animal in
youth, that was a time before it was
discovered that mixed with old tallow,
and seasoned with red pepper dog
is not bad to take. Bologna sausage
has revived my love for the dog.- He
is seasonable, other than as a bayer of
the moon, a worri'or of Thomas Cats,
and the dread of el 1 ladies. Sausage
has done this. W r' a mind at rest on
the above points, I went to the Hot
Supper--of course this was after get
ting back from Cclumnbia, and then
learned the reason why Lady Wash
ington failed to get up her Tea Party.
It grew out of a mustache growing on
the upper lip of the gentleman to per
sonate Gener1 W. The lady Wash
ingtonians reqiested a sacrifice of the
mustachio, bm.t the holder said no,
not one time l.tdies, the sacrifice is too
great. The consequence was--no Tea
Party, but instead a most delicious,
large and sati, fying Hot Supper. On
the whole I do:mt know but what the
change was a happy one. One thing
is certain however that it footed up a
larger amount in cash than the other
could possibly have done.

garden plots prepared, and then sow
flower seed. Nothingecan so beautify a
dwelling as a choice assortment of
flowers and shrubs. Visit Rosemont
Cemetery also and beautify your lots ;
it is a labor of love.
Going to the Hot Supper Friday
night, the Senior Editor soilcd his
shining shoes by stepping into the slimy
sod near the Academy. 'Tis ever his
luck to step into the mud. There was
a good path, but he took the other
one, and by reason did not enjoy the
Hot Supper, his shine being con
spicuously absent.
Some heathen, are not as much o!
the heathen as 'we think ; read a Ma
hometan proverb, "God has bestowed
the good things of this world to re
lieve ouw necessities, not to reward
our virtues ; these will be rewarded in
another world." We knowof no greater
necessity to be 'relieved, than a stub
born cold, and we know of no better
relief than Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup.
We esteem the privilege of seeing
and hearing the great Hungarian Vio
linist Remenyi, one of the greatest
and most fortunate that has lately
fallen to our lot. The violin is- the
king of instruments. We have heard
some of the most celebrated players
in our day and time,and anticipate great
pleasure on this occasion, and hope
that a large house will greet this dis
tinguished performer and his talented
troupe.
Notice.
The year 1884 will long be remembered by
the denominations of Christians known as
Methodists. It is the centennial year of
organic Methodism in America, and will be
celebrated every where as such, and made the
occasion of the raising of large contribu
tions for Church -and Educational purposes.
All papers published in the interest oi said
denominations will be filled with the news of
what is being done, but the most enterpris
ing of -all seems to be the Saint Louis Chris
tian Advocate, under the management of
Mr. Dameron, with the veteran MicAnally,
and his'assoeiato, Bounds, as Editors, which
leads off with-very interesting centenary pa.

IN THE BEGI
OF
THE NEW YEAR
0 C LYE;i
Offers to his friends and customers of the past year
lAST TI-IALTKS
for their patronage, believing that so long as the people p
ronize him they show their appreciation of him as a mer
chant.
THE LOW PRICES
to be found at FLYNN'S entitles him to a front seat in the
mercantile sphere, and in order to retain this position, and
still merit the confidence and patronage of the people of.
Newberry and surroundings, he
PLEDGES HIMSELF
in this announcement to lead the town in LOW PRICES
during the present year as in the past.
THIS PRESENTATION'
is not intended for an extremely fancy or acrobatic adver.
tisement, but it means STRICTLY BUSiNESS, and
if you would take care of Number One, go where ybu can
get the most goods for the least money,
THEREFORE LOOK .
to your own interest, and bear in mind that the same faixi
and honorable dealing which characterized FLYNN'S trans
actions of the year just closed, will be observed by him upon
the year we are just entering. His constant aim has been
to sell the people good, and reliable goods, -
A T THE LOI MIST PO88IDli l'RIC8.
And if success is the me'asure by which to judge, he feels
that he can justly claim it, as his business has increased -
remarkably since his appearance in Newberry.
And in this connection, it may not be improper to remind
my patrons that I have on hand Ladies' Cloaks, and Walk
ing Jackets 25 per cent less than New York cost.
Ready made Clothing regardless~of cost.
A number of heavy over coats, regular prices from $11.00
to $18.00 now $8.50 to $14.00.
In fact it will pay you to call on FLYNN first.
DONT FORGET
The Domestic Sewing Machine takes the cake for variety
and excellency of work, and can be bought at very reasona
ble prices.
Tendering my sincere thanks to the Country people of New
berry for their past support I heartily pledge my continued ij
efforts in behalf of low prices.
CHAS. J. PURCELL, Manager.
