Mrs. Rhinehart, after a severe and
protracted illness of over three months,
" died at Prosperity on the '7th of July.
* She was S years ol 1, and was the mo
ther of Mrs. Dr. Langford of the same
place. She was indeed a mother in Is
rael, baing one of the original mem
bers who was at the organization of
Nazareth-Church, 65 years ago.
Mr. Henry Boozer, aged 82 years,
(lied at Prosperity, August 5th. He
was the father of Mr. H. S Boozer.
For more than fifty years he had been
a worthy and consistent member of
St. Luke's Church. He enjoyed good
health all his life, never having had
1u the need of the physician. He leaves
six children-Mrs. Mary C. Lester,
isin Wm. D. Boozer, Mrs. Nancy M. Haw
if th kins, Mrs. E. Long, together with
af grand-children and great-grand-child
Mi ren to mourn his departue. He was a

Mrs. W. T. Wright died on Sunday
mrning, after a protr.acted and pain
fulillnes-;f that fell destroyer, con
smnaption. She was an exemplary mem
a ber of the Baptist Church, to all the
requirements and obligations of which
she strictly arlhered, and the consol.
tions of religion enabled her to bear
her sickness with serene resignation.
She has left two little boys. a daughter
and her husband to bear the loss in
flicted on them by Divine Providence,
and has gone to the rest prepared for
the faithful. This is a peculiarly sad
disp mas ition, t) the husband, as he
within one saort year has been called
up->n to part with a son and a daugh

We learn from th- Manchester (N.H.)
Mirror and American, that Mr. E.1. B.
Gillis died recently after a protrac
ted illness. There are those here who
will learn with regret of the death of
this worthy young man, for in the brief
space of his sojourn here, from April to
June last, in quest of health, and ac
companied by his sister, he won the
confidence and respect of many for his
intelligence and moral worth.
A Good Combination.
THE HERALD AND NEWS is a good
combination, the subscription list be
ing doubled. Over twelve hundred
subscribers now read the paper weekly,
and as an advertising medium it will
compare favorably with any paper in
the State. Business men who desire
to have the largest number of men,
women and children read their notices,
are invited to use this paper as a me
dium. 33, 3t.
Fifteen per cent.
All postmasters are authorized and
requ,sted to act as agents for the
HERALD AND NEws in getting sub
scriptions. Fifteen per cent. will be
allowed on every cash subscription.
No paper and no per cent. unless the
cash accompanies the name. No trou
ble attaches to the soliciting of a sub
scriptio:n, and on the other hand fifteen
per cent. will be yours. Will you try
it, and make a little pocket money.
As the campaign will be a lively one,
and in order that every mani in the
*Couinty, and out of it as well, may
*keep posted on the newvs of the (day,
and as they cannot be informed with
out a news~paper, we offer the Herald

"It would be no violation of the

Monthly Prayer Meetings.
We take pleasure in calling the atten
tion of the community to the fact that
a "Circle of Prayer" has been inaugu
rated in our town, and that a weekly
prayer meeting will be held Friday of
each week, alternating in the various
churches. Mr. A. E. Potter lately
came into our midst is the mover in
these meetings, and we hope that the
members- of all the churches will give
their =ympathy and aid in a matter of
such vital interest to the community.
Evidcnce of Business.
The two valuable lots lately pur
chased by Mr. Robert L. McCaughrin,
known as the Duncan and Pratt lots,
will at once be built upon, and two
stores, each 32x90 feet, will afford
place for as many merchants. We un
derstand that they have already been
rented. It is a good plan to strike the
iron while it is hot, but we have never
known it to be struck before being
subjected to heat, and we hail this
prompt action as an evidence of busi
ness prosperity and activity. We
wish all the parties success. The
building on these vacant lots will fill
a vacuum long looked upon with pain.

A Hopeful Locality.
The good people of Louisville, Ken
tucky, are beginning to find "the eter
nal fitness of things," in the recently
noticeable growth of their city, as re
lates to its geographical position.
Within a radius of 300 miles, 11,000,000
of people live, or in other words, one
fifth of the entire population of the
United States are within this circle,
which is traversed in every direction by
completed and accommodating rail
ways and by several navigable rivers.
The Southern Exposition has secured
reduced rates of fare to their display
ini the middle of this populous ring,
and therefore, Louisville doth sing.
The appointment of Miss Olivia Gar
lington, by the Trustees of the Female
Academy, as instructress in that Insti
tution, is a step which gives evidence
of much wisdom. We learn that there
were nineteen applicants for the posi
tion, many of them highly meritorious;
but the well-known abilities of Miss
G., together wvith the numerous and
well-earned letters of recommendation
presented by her, showed her fitness
for the place. We are much pleased
at this appointment, for the Academy
and its scores of bright, intelligent pu
pils are assured of an able and accom
plished teacher, and one too who will
gain the love and esteem of the young
ladies. The Newberry Female Acad
emy has a bright prospect before it.
The corner-stone of the Newberry
Cotton Factory was laid one year ago,
Aug. the 10th, and an immense strule
ture has been piled, brick upon brick,
since that very memorable date until
it has assumed the most noble pro
portions. It will compare favorably
with any factory of its kind, and our
County -nay well be proud of it. Soon
will be heard the hum of its thousands
of spindles, a.nd the fleecy cotton be con
verted into yarn and cloth. We think
it would be app' tpriate to celebrate
its day of opening by a holiday and a
general invitation to the community to
visit and see the "reels go vound."
