A PAPER FOR THE PEOPLE.
The Herald is in thehighest respect a Fam
ly Newspaper, devoted to the material in
terests or the people of this County and the
State. It circulates extensively, and as an
Advertising medium offers unrivalled ad
vantages. For Terms, see first page.
The Obserc of last week says:
The Obsereer of May 15th spoke of
a blank petition that had been sent
to this county by Superintendent
of Education Coward. Last week,
three weeks afterwards, the IIE:
A_l) and the News reply to the
article, and do so in such a way as
to lead one who had not read the
Observer's article, or having read it
had forgotten it, to infer that the
Observer had perverted the facts in
the case. The IIEIALD "fears" that
our article "was construed as in
dicating that the work of obtaining
signers was abandoned because the
sentiment of our community was
against it." It proceeds to give its
own version "as a matter of fact."
V hile the HERALD does not charge
the Observer in so many words
with saying the petition was aban
doned because the sentiment of the
community was agaiast it, nor that
it was chilled by public sentiment,
vet, its editorial being in the nature
of a reply to ours, that is the in
Our remarks were not in the na
ture of a reply to the Obserccr; the
IIEIALD did not speak of the Ob
sercer's article so as to lead any
one to infer that facts had been
_)erverted; and it did not charge
our contemporary with anything,
either directly or inferentially. The
IIE1:ALD said nothing about the
matter until it found that the O,
screer's article had been construed
by persons in Newberry ;as indi
cating that the work of obtaining
signers was abandoned because the
sentiment of our community was
against it," and it feared that it
would be so construed elsewhere.
This explains why our remarks
were published three weeks after
tile Oljscreer's article.
'The IIER1ALD did not proceed
to give its own version "as matter
of fact." It obtained its facts from
tile citizen who carried the petition
around, and the Ob.serter has not
vet said that those facts are incor
rectly stated. We said thlat the
petition was presented to some
twelve persons, tile majority of
whom signed it; the Ob:sercer. says
that it was presented to eleven per
sons six of whom signe,1 it. Our
contemporary mfighlt have added
tihat one of the five refused to sign,
on the soie ground thlat hie feared
that it was an attempllt to injure
Senator lhtler-he has sin1Ce signed
the petition; anothler refused, not
that he wa opposed to national
aid, but because he had not decided
about the matter: two of thle others
were iln the saihe office withl the
gentleman who had the petition in
hlandl, and he knew their views be
fore lie presented thle petition to
them tile fifth was too busy to talk
abo-ut the petition, but v:ould have
signed it, and has since (lone
so. Of tile nine to whom the peti
tion was presented outside theC gen
tliman's own office, we may say
thlat not one was oiposed to it.
The HE!AD knew most of these
facts three weeks ago.
We esteem our contemporary.
and if we ever have charges to
make against himl, we promnise
that they- shall be plain andI specific.
We think that a more car eful exam
inationl of the matter will convince
himl that lie has no0 cause of quar
rel withi the Iih:AI.
The Obsercrr. words, to which
the Iv:uaIm referred three weeks
alter they were published are as
Onhe of the blank petitions was
sent to School Commissioner Boyd
at P1 rosp)erity sever-al days ago. A f
ter somec effort,3Mr. Boyd sueceeded
in gettin.g tw:o signatures to the peC
tition. Becoming discouraged he
ser.t the petition to a citizen of the
town of Newberrv. and asked hlim
to carry it arounld. IIe did not
meet with mluchl encouragement.
and not having time to devote to
the mnatter,. he retuirned the petition
to 3Ir. Boyd. When it is re
memnberedl how easy it is t.o se
cure signatures to almost any
sort of petition, the abov-e facts
indicate very strongly if they do
not prove, that the people of this
section are opposed to national aid
to education. especially in the shape
of the Blair bill.
Our contemporary will of course
state what the II:aL state-d a
week ago, that a petition' exactly
like the one mentioned here has
since been sent to Col. Aiken froml
Newberry, signed by 120 persons.

'ihis is the third t ime we write you
oh people of Newherry from this
grassv town, and we are not weary
either of the supreme quiet of the
people and the exquisite refresh
ment afforded by its everlasting and
never ending slopes and levels of
green and portive luxuries. It is
the quietest place our eyes have
ever rested on, and but for the con.
tinual passage of the trains, one
niight rest under the delusion that
it was enjoying a long and health
ful rest. But the swift trains wake
up the echoes as they come and as
they go, the livelong day and the
night-it is no unconmmon thing
for two and even four to pass each
other at the uniform speed of be.
tween thirty-five and forty miles per
hour, and it is a novel sight to loot;
at a passing I rain from the window
of another-the one opposite to you
looking as if it were a row of tov
cars, so very small do they seem.
For every one man or boy seen
on the str"pts one's vision is grati
fied b% the sight of six or eight
women. Men are few here in day
light, as the most of them have oc
cupation in Bridgeport, and other
contiguous towns, some even "earn
their bread by the sweat of their
brows" in distant New York. Most
times the streets are nearly desert.
ed, and only the butcher with his
strong and husky black beard, the
fish dealer, and if one walks on the
main street on which are the half
dozen stores and the post-office, su
perintended by a pretty, active
miss, and a few men seen. As
each passenger train becomes due,
the stillness is broken by the quick
moving Stratfordite skurrying
across the common to catch the
train. Everything and everybody
moves quickly here, a minute's time
makes all the difference, for one
moment lost and the train leaves
you. No one is left however, the
people understand the value of
time, and are therefore always on
time. As soon as a train leaves,
silence reigns supreme, and not a
soul is seen, but in five or ten min
utes, the same running, hurrying,
skurrying is seen again-and so it
is all day. Yes, Stratford is a dear,
delightful, quiet solitude.
This is the home of the Reav. Ar
thur Sloan, the Faith-Worker. We
had the pleasure of attending one
of his meetings last evening, and
were much impressed with the
truths which lie uttered. Read
James v., 14 & 15. If this were
some light or trivial sub)ject we could
make ourselves understood, but it
s full of significance, of solemn,
eligious thought, and we can only
ay from what we have seen, and
hat we have heard, that we believe
iss Curtiss in whose house these
meetings are held, is a living and
etive example of the working of
ath. For twenty-five years she
ad been afflicted, and only at brief
ntervals had been exempt from
ain and could walk. In March
ast, to use her own expressive lan
~uge, she "carried her trouble to
he Lord, and believed," and hei
ath was so strong that from that
oment "she was healed." We
hve seen this lady, have spoken
o her, and have felt the warm pres
mre of her hand, hav'e looked into
er clear, truthful eyes, and there
s no mistaking the evidence. We
ill relate one or two other instan
es. A lady was brought here a
few weeks a~go, from New York.
She could not walk and suffered in
ense, agonizing pains in her feet,
nd she had been in that condition
for years. She came, was the sub
ect of sp)ecial, earnest prayer, was
aointed by MIr. Sloan, believed.
and was jistatlyj healed. She n:ulk
&i to her templorary home, a (]ttr-'
rvs of a ifei, w!t( to-dayi is v:ell.
r. Sloan's mind was led in this
irection only a few months ago,
and about the first of January, lie
believed that God would make him
Iis instrument in IIealing those
who would take hold of the revealed
promise, and with bunble and
hild-like simplicity believe in the
Faith. We are thus particular. b; -
ause we would have our readers
anderstiad andl see the truth as it
bears up)on us. We confess to
skepticism when first told of this,
but it is all clear and bright nowv.
In pursuit of this feeling, the Rev-.
gentleman, made his two children
bothi amlicted,one with weak ankles,
wichi prev'ented its standing sq1uare
ly up)on its feet, and the other with
a muscular twitching in hands and
face-the subjects oftspecial p)rayer,
humbly beseeching the interposition
f the Almighty in their healing.
lis prayer was answered--the next
morning the blessed, grati!'x'ing
sight of one child walllkg, anid the
otier relieved of' the p)ainftul con tor.
ions of its body, gladdened his
sight. Mr. Sloanm is a Christian
entlIem an, tho! oughly and heartily
devoted to the work he is engaged
in and is besides a ripe scho:ar,
and his thioughts are clothed in a
beautiful simplicity of languaige
every action, every look, every'
work. evidences him to be true. We
ould relate several otler remarka
ble instances of lIcaling,. but f'eel
that these are suffiient, and we
leave tIhe interesting subject with
he reader for quiet thouht.
The w;eathier has becomne sudden
iX cool again,. and our Southern
iood is cliill ed . but n1ot to such an
extent as woul mamke ''our hair to
rion e'd lik' <pilis un th
min for anuv suc~h feat as tinat. Onem
head, he has retired to his hole or
to his retreat in the Jersey flats.
u,ith the wind from the South and
South-West they come in myriads, s
but fortunately, unlike their South- s
ern cousins, they have no "music L
in their souls," a singing master is
evidently neede I here on the Long
Island Shore. When the wind f
changes to the East or North, thee
annoving torments suddenly disap- f
pear. They are different from
their cousins in that they are easi
ly klilled. and confidiingly present v
their bodies and wait the crushin, t
finger, seldom attempting to fly.
While on this theme we might as
well tell all we know about this
furtive insect, as to its character
and habits. in its Northern clime. c
The Stratford 'sketur is not a:nbi- a
tious, but content to rest in the 1
low-grounds of the first story of the

and from these windows it is
excluded by frames of thin wire- r
netting-these frames are set in and i
are separat from the window frames

thus protc(te(f for the reason above t
stated. We impart this lesson in

IIazy weather for three days past ,
has put an estoppel on our pur- I
pose to draw a few of the den- ,
zens inhabiting the waters of the
Sound from their recesses in
the mighty deep-we hope soon
however to hook the Black and the
Blue fish, and bring them in. We
are pleased to say that our health
is improving, and with this we close
this week's letter.
STRA TFORD, C'T. LE'i'rE1:.
SvT rrmm. C.. ,Junle 12, '84.
We proinis.-d in our last letter to
tell the readers of the IIrcn.m I)what ~
we saw at the great Circus Show of a
the world-renowned Phineas T. Bar- 1
num, and as this letter will be en- S
tirely devoted to this subject. we
will commence with the beginning,
and tell when we started and how
we got there. The show was to 1e
at Bridgeport, the home of the P
Showman, we were at Stratford.
At 8.30 we took the train. and in
five minutes were on foot again, and
the next moment in a beautiful e
grassy park-there is grass enough o
here to feed all the poor, half staf- f:
ved cattle of South Carohina. and :
suflicient left to supply another i.
State. Here, with a conglomerate t1
mass of men, women and children e
we waited the grand procession. c
This provedl to lbe the most impos- t
ing street pageant it has ever been1 I
our good fortune to see. Wte made t
a feint to count the magnificently t
dlecorated bandl and show wagons,a
cages, chariots, fine horses of every n
color under the sun, men, women. I
clowns, boys, besides the Zulus, tihe C
Soudanis, the Arabs, and what nots, r
which made up this b)ewildlering t
show, but we were so lost in wonder v
and amazement, that the attempt 1
had to 1be abandoned-there was t:
too much to be0 seen. Ini one thing e
we succeeded--thec count of thes
elephants, there were twenty fouro
in line,J .umubo, thme great. the~ Sacred
or white elephant:, baby elephanLits, t
besides others of this s)pecies werea
not subjected to) the~ vulgar gaze of r
tile uinwashe~d throng, but were keptv
under cover. The cages of hoions,
tigers. panithiers, wildl cats andl manmy
other species, inl each of' wichl a
keeper was st ated,. added much to
the attractiveness oft this large and
grand display of nature, art and
wealth-for 1P. 13. is represented to
be0 worth S10.000,000-on foot t.:o
besides the elephants there were
herds of camels, dromIedaries,. and
other four. footed curiosities. Fif
teen minutes were consumed in the~
passage of this grand show from
the p,oinlt at whic:h we stood. Wte
never expect to see another of its
like-and the sight of this was
glory (enough for one day.
Ihaving a few hours to idle away
till the hour of adumission to the in.
ner sidle of the grand .show, we took
the streets and made for the beau
tiful Sea-Side Park, whmichm, in our
view, is as fine a.s the West Point
Gardeni at Charleston. The view
is much more entended, and the
Park lovelier. W hope we may
he p)ardooed for this expression of
of a sincere opinio(n. This scene
so charming 1lolled th~e senses into
delicious repose, anid was enjoyedt
to its full. but there wa a voidl
whichi grassy slopes,beautiful walks,0
sea brieeze, and restful seats could 1
satisfy. The craving for food made
itself felt, and wve crossed over to a
restaurant near,. anid quelled tihe
inner unlrest by an :appl!icationi of
blue fish,. clams and eoTice. It is
needless to saiy that peac~e r.igned

rhite or pied marks upon ears and

ndicates that he is vastly different
rom the remainder of the large
herd. le was looked upon with

The greatest misfortune that can
befall an individual is the habit of
regar.iing his own opinion as of
more importance than that of an
other. What an unenviable char
acter is such an one. We must
correct our opinions by those of
others. In the "multitude of coun
sellors there is safety"-how wise
how true is this. Ilow great is
the aversion to the self-opinionated
man, as we look upon him with our
narrow eyes. which fail to see be

So, as has been said. is it with
prayer. If it do not bring God to
man, it will bring man to God. And
this is always well for man. Con.
scious :npproach to God lifts man
above himself; takes him, for the
time, out of this .,orld of ever chang
ing 1ph momena and places him
among the changeless verities of
eternity.- W. P. Breed.

ther owe,. and which ther do not
often pay. The village bells are
hecre alVuded to, andl not the city'

FITZ-EDWARD ON SHIRTS!
A shirt is a very humble gar
ment, but after all it has a great
deal to do with a man's happiness.
What misery arises from an ill.
setting bosom, a bad-fitting neck
band, an uncomfortable yoke, or
sleeves too short or too long.
But now I will be comfortable
and happy, I have found the shirt
that always fits-"The DIAioND."
The tangled thread of life's ex
istence henceforth will be smooth.

Knowing that the Cash trade for the Summer will ne
cessarily be tight and not desiring to do any credit busi
ness, we have this day determined to MARK DOWN
our goods to such low prices that every one will find it to
his interest to buy our goods at Spot Cash
Prices. Therefore we have cut down our prices on
Clothing, Shoes, and Hats
From 10 to 15 per cent. preferring to make a very small
profit rather than to have a large quaniity of goods on hand
at the beginning of another season. We mean what we say
as you will very readily perceive from a comparison of.
former prices, and in comparison with others' prices. W e
have certain linies of StaWv Wats that we are;
closing out at 50c. on the $1.00. We call the attention
the ladies specially to our line of Opera Slip
pers in all qualities and at all prices.
Trunks at Cost!
We still have a few Gents and Ladies fine Zinc and
Leather Trunks which we will sell at Factory prices to
The Cash is what we want
amd we must have it!
