The high wind on Wednesda.f night

heard of a number of people leaving

To Repair Damages.
Dear lady, there is probably no use
telling you that fashionable life in a
great city is a rough one on your
beauty. Late hours, loss of sleep and
mental excitement will leave you by
and by shorn of those beautiful tresses
which drew lovars.around you in-other
years. Artificial substitutes can never
pass for those rich and glossy leks.
Parker's Hair Balsam will stop your
hair from falling out, restore its nat
ural color and softness, and prove
cleansing and beneficial to the scalp.
The Cotton Plant
Grows in importance, and is now in
its ninth number, reaching out and ta
king deeper root in an appreciative
soil. We are pleased that its energet
ic proprietor, Mr. W. J. McKerrall is
making a success of the Cotton Plant.
Its exceeding low price, only 60c. a
year, puts It down so low that the man
who heglects to take it, ranks himself
among the unpardonably indifferent.
We can give no better advice than
this-send 60e. to the proprietor at
Marion, S. C., and secure the best and
the only agricultural paper published
in the State.
Speak it Aloud.
"Tell it not in Gath, nor speak it
in the streets of Askalon," for what
good will it do the Gathites. or they of
Askalon, or what' will it benefit the
individual we design to honor? not a
speck, not a mite, not a shadow. But
shout it aloud inthe streets of New
berry, of Prosperity, of Pomaria, of
Jalapa, or any other of the priucipal
cities in the county of Newberry. Yes,
breathe It, speak it, shout it, thunder
it, from early morn till dewy eve,
that C. F. Jackson has withdrawn from
publie gaze that dilapidated garment
which has beci for so long rotting on
the historic bush. It was a sorry piece
of clothing known to him and to many
others as credi. He now sails under
the broad pennat of eask, and the
smallest of smal profits. The foundation
of his house is now of solid rock, and
not as before of sand. See his card.
Another Rescue from Death.
In 1881, while Sewing on a machine,
my wife was taken with a severe pain
in her side, which was soon followed
by hemorrhages from her lungs, se
vere cough, fever, and she could neither
eat or sleep, and in a few weeks she
was reduced to a living skeleton. Her
stomach refused to retain any food
and the physician thought one of her
lungs was entirely gone. At a final
consultation of two physicians her
case was pronounced hopeless. Itried
Brewer's Lung Restorer by advice of
one of the physicians and she began
to improve after the third dose. She
continued the inedicine and is now in
excellent health, and Is better than she
has been in several years. I believe
Brewer's Lung Restorer saved her
life. BENJ. F. HERNDON,
The ministers of the town have be
gul a weekly preachers' meeting at
which they exchange views and dis
cuss questions connected, with their
preaching and pastoral work. At the
meeting last Monday morning the fol
lowing resolution was adopted :
Resolved, that we the pastors of the
several churches in the town of New
berry do hereby express our sincere
and profound conviction, that indul
gence in the modern dance, on the part
of professing christians, is detrimental
to their religious influence, hurtful to
their spirituality an<i tends to moral
evil; and we do, therefore, most ear
nestly and affectionately urge the
members of our churches :o abstain
from this worldly amusement.

tering, much larger than at any previous
meeing. Several Teaehers indicated a wish
to become members. The question previous
v selected for discussion at this meeting was:
"What is the best mothed oftschool govern
mnt" The discussion was opened by the
President of the association,Capt. Pifer. He
maintained that the prime object to be ob
taed by the teacher was the attention of
the pupils. He said that punishment should
be rare, but certain and immediate. Ho
said he would emphasize the remark that
irmness, kindness, self control were the es
sential requisites of a good teacher. The
farther discussion of the subject was partici
pated in by President Holland, Profs. Welch
and Cork, and Superintendant Boyd. and
The question of corporeal punishment was
incidentally brought into the discussion.
On this point, the association seemed about
equally divided, some maintaining that there
was mnch vir tue in the rod, while others
hogt it worked an tnjury.
The next meeting will be held on tie first
Saturday In June, and the question selected
fo d-cussion is "The best method for teach
ug English Grammar." The diseussion will
be opened by Prof. J. C. Cork of Prosperity.

Gentlemen Editors.-I lande.1 in'this sec
tion on the 19th. inst., and have located at
Uncle Wesley Folk's. This is a delightful
country, and the people are so clcver that
they make one feel quite at home. These
people a all well to-(lo, live good, and
seem to be happy. Uncle Wesley has a
good. nice little wife, who only weighs two
hund:ed and eighty-flye pounds. And he
seems to love three hundred pounds of her.
This country is level, and easy to cultivate,
they make good crops here when they get
Seasons ; from S to 2400 pounds of seed cot
ton. per acre; 10 to 30 bushels of corn, rice,
and all other crops in proportion. Potatoes,
peas, sugar cane, anAt all kinds of fruits do
well, oats also do well, but wheat can't be
raised on account of Eust. The ponds and
streams abound with fish and alligatos I
have had fish nearly every m'al. The
game is deer, wild turkey. rabb..:s. coon,
oposum, quails, larks, doves, and sach birds
as we have in Newberr.

Inse i te Coleto Press, that Newber
ry has out several candidates already. I
know it was gettinir time to sow in the gar
den, and plant Irish potatoes, but thought
it too soon to plant out Candidates. I
thoughtlI would be a candidate, but I will
not get home in time to start even. so I
will nominate Sniffles in my place. I miss
the Herald y much. I lhke to read i
amazen well, (.ousin Tom Greneker, and
sniffles have so many funny pieces in the
paper. Tel lDit, your Jalapacorrespondent,
that Uncle Wesley is all right, and as hap
py as a june bug.
The weather down here is windy and
frosty, we had a heavy frost this morning.
but warm and cloudy while I write this
evening. The storm between Eamburg
and Midway can hardly be described, it
was so sudden and terrific. More Anon.
COt. JoHN T, SLOAN, SR., is a
candidate for Secretary of the State.
All right. We do not endorse
much of what Colonel LrsCoMa
teaches, but if he is to be made an
object of attack, let us open the
fight all around. No one element
or set can rule this State. Col.
LrsCOMrB is the solitary represen
tative of up country farmers-the
men who do the bulk of the Dem
ocratic voting-in the State House.
If he has to leave, let us have a gen
eral leaving and changing.
We advise the very astute and
distinguished gentlemen who are
managing the party and the State
to nip this movement in the bud, lest
a hornet's nest be stirred up-Green
