We have been favored by the author, d
Mr. Belton O'Neall ToWnsend, with a l
co)py of the above mentioned iteet-~ a:
inig book. From a short biographical is
sketch accompanying the "Lays," 1 f
ecparate foran, we learn that the athor a
was named after the Chief Justice by a
his lnther, Maj. B. 0. Townsend. The ~
contents of this book are as varIed as a
interesting and show that the author d
is no mean friend of the muse. We r
shall read thme book more at leisure. It 1
is beautifully printed by C. A. Calvo,
*of Columbia, and neatly bound. Thea
price is not named, and( we presume
that it is for sale by the booksellers of e
that city.1
Painful Accident.
Edward McIntosh met with a painful
ceident last Friday afternoon. He
had some powder, and a few fre
crackers in a box, and while handling ~
it he dropped some fire in it some way t
and it blew up in his face, burning himn
very badly. We are glad to know
nothinig serious will come fromi it, hist
eyes are all right.
Mr. Eduardl Sehqltz met with a sima- t
ilar accident last1 -ednesday afternoon.
HIe was wvorking over a lamp of explo- :
sive matter when it lew up and burn- S
ed his. face very badly, but we learn h~
that it did no serious damage to him. r
Both of these we are glad to say aire v~
doing well.s
We take pleasure in acknowledging ~
a card of invitation to attend the Fire- :
man's Tournament, to be held at Ol
umbia. on the 18th and 19th of June.
This Tfourna:ment no doubt will be a
grandl atiair, as the arrangements have
been in progress for several weeks, and
we judge of this too by the names of
the commit tee of arrangements, they
aire all good and true men and under
stand business. The prizes to be award
ed State Comnpanies and Tfeams~ outside
of C'olumnbia and Charleston amount
to $3->0. The round trip ticket from
Newberry to citizens will be $1.90 to
Firemen in Uniform $1.40. Prepare to
attend the Tournament.
Preacher's Meeting.1
Rev- J. C. Boyd preached last San
day from Lnke 7 :37. He gave these
marks of christian character, viz:
faith, contrition, and love. His ser
mon mast have been interesting.
Rev. McMorries occupied Rev. Me
C'lintock's pulpit and p)reached an ap

This is a question which has for

the young meni who are engaged as

part of that class of cur community,

The Parade and inspection of our
fire department Tuesday afternoon was
a splendid affair, and the Excelsior's
may well feel elated at the admiration
elilited. The Hook and Ladder too
looked fine, and as a body reflect credit
on the town. The Excelsior Steamer
and its two Reels, as well as the Hook
and Ladder, were handsomely decor
ated with evergreen wreaths and bright
colored flowers, and looked a4 hand
some as hands could make themn. Tile
procession started at 5,30 and was
made in the following order: first the
splendid steamer, crowned and almost
overed with floral oferings, and
drawn by four large grey horses, next
followed the two reels; the number on
parade was about fifty; then followed
the Hook and Ladder, beautifully d&c
rated, the number of men is not
known, but no doubt the full strength
Df the company was represented, thus
through the principal streets the march
was made, to the admiration and de
Light of the crowds of ladies in their
sunday dresses, and the gentlemen
nd children who occupied the side
6valks, doors and windows. This was
he first regular parade of our infant
ire department, and great was the sat
sfaction. The town of Newberry is
)roud of its firemen. After the pa
(ade the line stopped in front of Court
Eouse for inspection by the Town
'ou1neil, then took its place on Market
treet to contest for the two medals
>ut up by the Town Council, out of
heir own pockets, one to the best time
nade by Squad-, 1 and 2 of the Ex
:elsiors, and the other one to the two
iquads of the truck. By some mistake
;quad 1 of the Excelsior's was not
;imed and the contest for the medal
vill have to be run some other day.
3oth runs were good. The test of the
mrgine was fron the thne the smoke
ame out of the stack until a solid
trein of water issued out of the noz
:le; it was just five minutes and thirty
econds. The medal offered to the
look and Ladder was won by squad 1,
naking the run in one minute and
hirty seconds. Squad 2 made it in
mne minute and fifty-eight seconds.
['he run was 300 yards, erection of the
adder, mounting of the agile member,
>lacing his hand upon the top round,
lismount ing and placing the lader back
ipon the truck. This ended the first
.nnnal parade. Our sympathy is with
he brave fireman who carries his life
a his hand as it were, and who in
pite of fierce flames, erpmbling, top
Ung walls, and falling roofs rushes to
bp rescue of life and property. Let
i cherish the fireman aid ever ex
ibit our admiration and esteem.

On invitation of Mr. Holbrook, the
polite Superintendent of Newberrv
Cotton Factory we were on time TueC
day to see the Engine started and the
immense. Fly Wheel set in nio.
We reached there at 2 o'clock, ai'A at
2.5, Mr. A. B. Ctllinz, asisted by
Misses. Malie MCCaghrin and Mamie
Holbrook, plit life into the bealutiful
machiner% and at once it moved with
the ease and grace peculiar to the Cor
lis engine. The engine is not
large as might be expected looking at
the great w>eel, but it is of immense
power, some 3'0 horse. It is not liml
ited to this head of steam either but
can be run at npieh great,-r powerl.
The rea=on why the wheel is so larg
is that it is purposely designed to ae
commodate another engine of like size
as the present one, when it is deemed
proper to add to the factoiy or to build
another. The startin:r of the engine
was simply to test it and see if it weir,
all right ere 31r. Cullinz returned
hiom. after the labor of erecting it.
Thus the beginning has been inau'gur
ated and to our fair young townwe
men is (ue the credit aId the di;tini
guished honor of being the first -ngi-i
neers to start the great work. Two
small agricultural engines outside ftr
nished the steam on this occasion. We
noticed the President 31r. Roht. L.
McCaughrin on hiand with a couite
nance beaming with satisfaction, be
sides a large number of equally pile:sed
ladies and geitleien. Hurrah again

Excase for a Lack of Neatness-A few Gen
tle Hints which Carelese People would do
well to Ponder.
l'RosPEnt'ry, May 2.-The trade
3f this section maintains a steady
upward tendency. Competition is
sharp, but short profits mean quick
ales. Close attention to business
brings sure success. Merchants do
not play marbles and pitch quoits
efore their store doors. Live far.
ners do not loaf about town-even
3n Saturday afternoon. This means
[)ush-not poverty. Men and wom
n here work hard and live econom
cally, but they grow better and be
3ome happier every day. The mor
il and physical health of the people
s promoted by fair employment.
Fhe increasing demand for ile fab
ics shows an improvement in the
)ublic taste. The old fashioncd un.
)ainted and uncarpeted house, with
ts time worn pine tables, split bot
om chairs and plain looking bed
3tead is being replaced by a ne.t and
ittractive house, with finished fur
iiture and multiplied convenin
,es. The colored people have be
,un to whitewash and furnish their
iouses, making them more and
'nore homelike. On a recent trip on
.he Charleston and Savannah Rail
-oad from Charleston to Augusta I
wvas pleased with the neat appear
ince of things. The home life here
s more primitive than in the region
ibout Charleston.
Education is bringing about a
xonderful change. Our school
building is unpainted and poorly
rurnished; but the training is excel
tent, maugre matters of taste, about
wvhich we dare not dispute. Boys
and girls are taking a full classical
ourse, including Greek. Industri
al training and art culture is, how
e:er; sadly neglected. As a result
nf the growing literary taste, every
nome is being sup)plieJ. with current
literature of a healthful sort. D)aily
papers are in demand. Home en
tertainment is bringing the loafing
place into disrepute. G ad-abouts
bave a small audience. The home
circle is becoming the chief joy of
parents and children. Business and
social progress have joined hands.
Poulation increases with the dle
velopmient of business enterprise.
Building lots are in constant de
Trade, manufactures and agri
ulture keep pace with intellectual,
moral and religious growth. Comn
mon sense culture is a matter of
public concern. The public press
may picture man ners as well as mor
als; hence a notice of village life
may be in order. Industry and ed
ucation belong together. The edu
cated man must work, and the work.
ingman must be educated. Indus
trial education is the need of the
times. Education must also mean
cultur-e and reiinement in the home.
The public taste should be so culti
vated as to demand attention to the
beautiful. We expect a certain
neatness in dress. and the same
principle applies to every (depart
ment of social life. A gentleman
will evince a proper regard for the
taste of those with whomi he associ
ates. So a citizen may properly
consult the pulctse in the gen
eral applearance of his property. A
dilapidated house in town is a grea
ter offense to good taste than soiled
and1 raggedI clothing with unpolished
boots in the~ parlor circle. Poverty
is no excuse for the lack of neatness.
This does not reqluire us to imnport
foreign airs with our clothes. Ilome
spunlf refinement is better than the
Good manners in travel, neatness
in dress. and good taste in the home
circle are p)oints which interest the
passing observ-er.
Prosperity is moving toward the
mark. X -News & Courier.
