Mrs. Elizabeth McNary, wife of Mr.
Levi MeNary, of Prosperity, died on the
15th inst., of paralysis, aged about 50
years. She was buried on Monday at St.
Marks. Edgefield County. f
A child of Mr. Price of Prosperity,died b
on the 14th instant, of diphtheria. r
Mr. John T. Halman, formerly of Hele- t

law of Mrs. Win. Zobel, of Helena. d
The work shops of Mr. J. Z. Salter,
near Vaughnville. in the upper portion e
of this County, were destroyed by fire on
Monday night of this week. The tools
._and material of Mr. Salter were,all lost.

me'ublic Park. h
ttI*ceRberry should no longer be with- r
;t a park. We have lost several oppor
nities, and before it is too late we
abould secure a suitable locality. Per- S
haps no better place, could it be obtain
ed, presents itself than the basin of '
Scott's Creek. on the south-west side of r
the depot. It would make a superb
park, upon the plan of the Columbia
park. -Terraced, with winding-walks, r
shade trees, fountains and rustic seats,
Newberry would then have a park which.
in point of attractiveness, would have C
but few to excel it. Overlooked from
the railroad embankment, the prospect
would be inviting.
Shade Trees. f
One of the distinguishing features
-perhaps the most attractive-of the cities C
and towns that are thought to be the
most handsome, is that whose streets
are lined with shade trees. They not E
only ornament, they improve the sanita- t
ry condition. It is a well known fact t
that the air of populous cities contains
less ozone than the suburban parts. t
Hence it is that trees and aromatic vege- t
tation act as atmospheric purifiers. The
Bucalyptus globulus,which emits campho- t
raceous antiseptic vapors, is said to coun
teract atmospheric poison and thereby p
destroy malaria. The wanton destruction u
of trees is to be regretted. The planting n
of a shade tree is an act worthy of ap- d
plause ; it is a blessing to posterity. As
the setting out of shade trees is compara
tively inexpensive, and the pleasure and
benefit derived, incalculable. may we
not reasonably hope that the day is
not very far in the future, when N ew
berry shall have all her streets and ave
nues lined with beautiful shade tlees.
The Dry Weather Moistened.
It has been nearly three months since
we have had anything.ike a rain. Frost t
nor clouds af'ected a cliange. The la'st e
rain fell -in August, and you could dig e
maiyfeet into the earth and fnd it diry
as a bone. It is nzot at all surprising that
many wells of water should run low. It
is of serious moment to the farmerswho
cannot ~sow~ their grain. Of late years h,
the rainfall has been irregular and un- o
certain in maniy parts of the earth-phe- p
nomeually so, and has given -serious v
trouble. Tihe clouds of dust that filledl the e
air day by day, to say nothing of the In,- p
jury done to fine goods, was verv i:
injurious to the general health. In k
the business parts of the town the dust a
has be.-n almo-t suffocating. It is ui
to be hoped that another year may not p
fiud our town without a water-eart to I<
sprinkle the stre ts. And now that the b
sp.-ll has been broken and the dust l:ii:11k
low by a gentle shower on Tu .cday fi
night, we are grateful to a ki.ad Provi- p
d (ence, hoping that the farmers maiy now y
speed the plow to their satisfactioni.
The Coffee House.
