In a New Place.
Mr. Mann for a long time succes&ful

into the store formerly occupied by Mr.

situation as a basiness store. Mr.

The attention of farmer, merchants
and business men generally is called
to the display card of the gentlemen
whose names head this notice. They
are so well known to the public that it
is hardly necessary for us to say any
thing specially in their favor. In this
community particularly these names
are as household words, and whatever
they say or do may be relied on with
the utmost confidence. Mr. W. F.
Gaillard is their agent for Newberry,
and any information sought for can be
obtained through him.
A Painful Accident.
Cc!. J. S. Renwick received a very
painful injury one day last week. He
was having a barn erected and was
having a piece, of timber about 30 feet
long raised, and in doing so it slipped
and fell, one end striking him Just be
low the knee and tearing all the flesh
off the leg and .smashing in the foot,
a most painful -.wennd. Dr. Carlisle
informs us timt he-i4 some better now
and can go about. on crntehes. The
Colonel is unfortunate, last year he
had an arm broken.
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 I
beauty. Late hours, loss of sleep and
mental excitement wiH leave you by
-and by shorn of those- beautiful tresses
which drew lovers around you in other
years. Artificial substitutes can nevex
:pas& for those rich- and glossy leeks.

Some excitement was created on
Surday evening at the Newberry Ho
tel, caused by the knocking of a lamp
from Ehe counter in the office of the
Hotel. Mr. Chase keeps the register
of the Hotel on a revolving stand or
desk, a lamp is always set on the
counter so any one can see to read or
write on the register. Some one con
ing in just after dusk, with a quick
motion turned the register, which
struck the lamp and knocked it to the
floor, the burner was knocked or blown
out by the flames and soon the room
was full of flames, the flames were
smothered by throwing over them some
over-coats. The counter was slightly
charred. A lucky escape from what
might have- been a large fire.

We write from notes dating back to
1812, yet we may give traditions ante
lating that. Even since then many
great and notable changes have taki

and we do not exaggerate when we
say that four-fifths of nature's pro
fuse gifts have been used up and de
stroyed hexc hi the last seventy years.
Anoiher n6table feature in the ehhnges
that have takeh place, is the ice-simple
of the land. Ten persons then owned
land and homes to where one does
now. Old house sites, with mounds
where the chimneys were and doted
but surviving apple trees are num
crous. The dwellings and improve
ments are far more commodious and fin
ished now than then. No doubt in many
things the changes have been beneficial
and progressive, nor can we doubt
that In many things they were based
on mistaken theories, and have result
ed In great and permanent evil.
We will begin with those who lived
near the junction of Indian creek with
the river. On what is known as the
Gracy Place, or lands of the estate of
P. W. Chick, lived a family of Stacks.
Of them we know little. We know of
no family now in Newberry by that
name. David Lavinder lived in the
same section. This namne too is extinct
in Newberry so far as we know. We
used to see a garden herb of that name,
when the matrons depended as much
on herbs for cures as they did on the
doctors, but it has, now been many
years since we have seen it. Mr. Lay

Cifflwel. onca told ut of a man's rais
ing a large family in the low lands of
Indian creek, and, though we haVe for
gotten the name he gave, we think it
probable it was Mr. Lavinder. The
whole family moved west except two
daughters. One of these married Jno.
Lyles and the other Robert Mars.
There also lived Thos Volentinc-he
had two sons and two daughters-one
of the sons was named Jack-they all
removed west. Several miles up the
Enoree, on land- of Mr. Brown or on
estate of our lamented friend Capt.
MuCarley, near where what is locally
well known as The Flannigan Shoals.
lived Dr. Reuben Flannigai who had
a mill where the shoals once wme.
The river is now fillcd with sand and
not a ripple is made od the water, by
the rocks that once formed a continu
ous shoal from side to side; for our in
formant tells-of often crossing on the
rocks when a mill-boy, fifty-five or six

days. le took.great interest in trees
both fruit and ornamental. The only
cyr ress trees we eye. saw in Newber
ry, were pointed out to us by Capt.
McCarley, once when riding near As
old settlement.- His wife was an excel
lent mid-wife. and Ivas called in those
homespun .day4 "Granny Flannigan."
'Tis sald We would ride ten and
twelve miles in the night for $1.50.
Close to Dr. F's. lived Billy Aber
nathy, he also had nice property-left
two sons and two daughters-William
and Clayton. .We know of n on.e
now fepr&seting his name, exceptk
grand daughter, Miss Jane; though
lie has quite a number of great grand
children, of whom are Messrs Win. and
N. S. Abram'.Ahildren,- and the Beards
of Columbia. There too. near where
their wortlry offspring still reside, lived
the Eppses. Jno. Epps, the great
grand-father of your most excellent
citizen who bears the same name, had
two sons, Daniel and Win. Win. was an
Esq. Daniel was the father of Dr. Jas
Epps and Geo Epps. Geo Epps left two
sons, .Jno and James, called "Paddy."
These moved to some of the upper coun
ties. Of Mr Jas Epps and his family we
shall speak again. We will only ri
nark here as the sai!or did when asked
why he had a wooden leg and replied
that he had one-his fath7er had one
that it ran in the 'lood; so it must run
in the blood for the Eppses to be
peace officers-for Jno. L. is the Judge
on the Mollohon circuit.
In closing this second article wve de
sire to comment on the fact that
though we have learned much not
known to the men of those primitive
times; yet we are forced to admit that
they possessed a vigor of manghood and
self-reliance that is now passing away.
Onr most interesti:ag problem and the
one we most assiduously study is "how
to control labor." Trhey and their
families did most of their own labor.

DEAR' EDITOR.-I made a gen
eral remark, not intended to touch
any applicant for I place due re
gards to both races of people. Now
you can contemplate the colored
man as any other, there are a few
among them who got spotted, but
what is the cause of that, simply
this, they haven't had the opportu
nity that other races of people have
possessed. 'The colored man has
only had eighteen years of freedom,
and now they can patronize, any
invention -:that the aristocrats or
Caucasians can invent. I will give
to the colored man credit where he
deserves it. The colored man has
bega fugitive of the- earth, they
have supported many a poor man
and have made the country consid
erably richer and now they are set
ting up as a young nation, with
nothing - but: their muscles. And
now there are some that own -land,
some own stores, and some are able
to superule public affairs. You
must remember in the space of
eighteen or twenty years this indus
t'rascof people'has made a
considerable progress. Now you ta~ke
u.p tlle other' aces of people. The
whites have been civilized more
tap ont ethodsaba years ago,
aid havi"been co-operating with
enlightened p)eople, with triumph and
respect, and they didn't make a
show like the colored. Americat
was discoverd in 1492, and it was
from that period up to 1607, before
they introduced civilization in this
new world, and besides that in
1620 they began to work free labor
ers, which they'continued until 1865,
which took up abont 235 years. I
won't say that' it was a bad idea
for slaves, for it caused the color
ed man to be.- civilized or to pa
tronize important inventions, but,
one thing I say of the white man
1-e has the property and ought to
treat the colored man with more
kindness than they do, for the good
they have done. Now we will take
up the red men who have been
Sfree alitheir lives and what'progress

FOR THE HERALD.
DhAr HERALD.-As if in fear of
another cyclone Flora timidly ad
vances with her beautiful treasures as
an offering to her lovely sovereign
Spring: yet scarcely waiting. for her
little subjects to don their pretty dress
e,. Old Boreas hurls them into con
!tsion, causing Marc. in sympathy
with April, a profusion of tears for the
rough treatment of their favorites;
yet only makin- them brighter and
fresher after each succeeding deluge.
Then gay warblers from their leafy
coverts burst forth in a swell of melo
dy cheering the little victims thro the
medium that in the same breath carols
praises to Nature's God ; those carols
perhaps faintly tho sweetly heard
among the evergreen leaves of the
"Tree of Life;" for as God delights
to hear and answer the prayers of his
servants, so we beleive he listens with
delight to the hymn of flower and bird,
and no one can be so entirely sur
rounded by labor but that he can talk
with God in his heart.
I heard an excellent ser,non from
the Rey. Kirkland at the protracted
meeting at Lebanon. He dizcoursed
to a crowded house, which from the at
tention that markd each hearer, coin
municated from nind to mind that a
lofty intellect and kind and generous
heart, prompted each appreciated truth
that fell from the good man's lips;
nor was he wanting in a spice of hu
mor that so pleasantly blends with in
telligence and worth. He wanted "The
Church Record" circulated among his
churches and related an incident in
which a young gentleman came to him
to subscribe for the papar to send to
lady love-she acknowledging the fa
vor to such an extent as to become his
wife. He didn't know that 'twas magic
in the paper that caused the deired
result, but admonished the young gen
tlemen present, to try it as a medium of
courtship as it might be the means of
showing ol'f their accommodating dis
position to an advantage.
The farmers generaliy are grum
bling about so much rain ; becoming
tired of "drizzly drozzle s" nor do
they want a trash mover." They are
jealous in the cause of their grain
that's soaking-fearing it will appro
priate too imnCh water for future use
fulness. Speaking of the mania of
our farmers for growing cotton a witty
Georgian farmer remarked that as a
man can't. feed his family on cotton a
good old fashioned famine would do
:hose cotton votaries good, suchas they
had when Joseph "chawed" his Lreth
ren in Egypt about Benjamin's .CUP.
In spite of the general complaint a
spirit of contentment pprvades a cer
tain jolly farmer at whose house we
stopped a few nights ago. While an
organette -was playing "Old Dan
Tucker" he merrily called for his "Gol
