TRE MIDLAND RAILROAD.
The County of Newberry. we are
glad to see is waking from her sleep
and this ne< road is claiming the
attention of her right minded citizens,
In our next issue we will give.:u
readers Mayor Courtney's vie*s on
this road, published in the News and
Courier a few days ago. It is an
elaborate document- and slould be
read cefully by men' onldtI sides
of the question. It shows clearly
the benefits which will accrue, giving
a statement concerning the preseni
status of the enterprise, the necessity
for the road, the population and re
sources of the counties through which
it will pass, and the available means
for its construction; Ou'great regret
is that we cannot give it in this issue.
The question to-day is do we want
this road, if so we 'must put our hands
into our.pockets, deep down and'gihr
liberally. Nor will it do to speak
lightly or disparagingly of it. The
citizens of Prosperity are taking the
bull by the horns as it'were and we
rejoice that it is so. The meeting
held there Monday night of which a
full report is given elsewhere shows
what this section is willing and able
to do. What will Newberry do.
A Cotton Mill Burnt.
SPABTANBuRO, February 23.-The
Fingerville-Cotton Factory on Paco

burned yesterday morning about 9
o'clock, the fire originating in the

been the work of an'incendiary, as
there had been no fire in any part of
the building since 4 o'clock-on Sat.

AN ETIUS3sd8C kEETING IN THE I8
TE8ST OF THE PROPOSED
THEBALL SET IN MOTION.
SPEECHES BY REPRESENTATIVE MEN.
The Herald and News learned on
Monday that there was to be a meet
ingin Prosperity that night- in :the
interest of the proposed. M i d
I lgn&3.oad. At the request of the
Proprietor, the Associate at once de.
termined upon attending, and in corn
pany with the Editor of the Observer,
we did attend.
It was apparent even before the
appointed time for the meeting that
Prosperity was thoroughly aroused
to the importance of the Midland
and in earnest in her efforts to do her
full duty in the premises.
You could scarce hear anything
discussed on the streets or in the
stores other than the Midland. And
we are told on good authority that
that whole section of the country and
all the' upper portion of Lexington
county, are heartily' in favor of the.
imnYediate constructionu of. the aid
The meeting under question was
held in the Academy and every busi

Col. A. H. Wheeler, Intendant of
the town, was called to the chair and
Mr. A. H. Kohn was requested to
act as Secretary. The President
stated that the object of the meeting
was in the interest of the proposed
Midland road. Hon. J. A. Sligh
then read the following resolutions
and moved their adoption:
Whereas the construction of the
contemplated Midland R. R. of S. C.
is of great importance to the.agricul
tural interests of this State, the cities,
towns and counties through which it
may pass will justify the construction
of the same at an early day and that
from information obtained from this
and other sections of this county we
feel justified in giving the assurance
that Newberry County will do her
full duty in the premises.
Therefore he it resolved that we do
heartily endorse the project set on.
foot by the incorporators of the Mid
land R. R. of S. C. tc build the- said
road according to the charter as we
understand it, an'd will lend our aid
and support to Lhe same.
'Resolved that.we most respectfully
i-equest Charleston and all other cities
towni and counties through which
the said road will pass to take action
thereon and, speak out their senti
meets in relation thereto.
Maj. G. G. DeWalt He said that
the proposed Midland road was of
great importance to all classes of our
citizens. That there was not a road
in the State controlled by the citizens
of the~ State, that the majority of the
roads were controlled by systems that
were sappig the very foundations of
the commerce of the State. These
great arteries of commerge being
owned by cities and corporations
outside our borders were working for
the initerests of others thban our own.
It was all Iraprtsat to ewn a road
in sympathy 'with otIr own inteess.
The question now is, shall we lie s1
pinely dowu sa talte nointerest in
an enterprise that shall redo4zd to oqr
interests; If we do w e will be sleeping

no.w have within our'reaoh,
Hloo, J~ , A.Sligt4 saiq that he was
glad that P'rosperity had taken the
moving steps in this rnatter, and 4ad
a me~eting in the interest~ of this road.
rIt may put in motion a bgjR that will
continue to roll until this rQad $s a
reality in the near future, Iniporta.nt

.nns This road if built will be of
chIetimnportance to the agriculturists.
Of course it will increase the value
of real esagte, but the chie( benefits
to be derived mnust redpund to the
f&rmers. Hle hoped that Charleston
would wake up to the importance of
this road and come forward gu4 meet
the sp.country and build the road:
IHW was proud of' Charleston as the
metropolis of thia State. The road
when built will increase competition
in the towns and thereby reduce pri
ces of necessarieg and inres the
.price of cotton, all of which will en
ure to the benefit of the farmer. He
was present as a representative of the
farmers, and would use his infiuence
to arouse them to the importance of
the road. Every man who buys a
pound of bacon or sells a pound of
cotton would be benefitted more than
his tax to build the road. He said
it was all-important for Newberry
and Prosperity to bestir themselves
in this enterprise. Laurens already
had competing lines, and could get
an outlet by connecting with thie
Georgia Central, Greenwood had
competing lines, and could give more
for cotton and sell goods cheaper
than either Newberry or Prosperity.
N ewberry was one of the richest

not is favor of any cross roads ; he
wanted a road through the center of
the State, just as the M4dland pro
posed to run. The town of Newberry
had a cotton factory, but if she would
bestir herself in the interest of this
road it would do her more good than
all the factories she could build.

It seemed to be the general opin
ion that it was useless to talk of build

The resolutions were heartily en
dorsed, and it was moved that the
editors of the Newberry papers be
requested to publish the same and
that a copy be sent to the News and
Courier, Columbia Register, Lexing.
ton papers, Laurens papers and the
Greenville News. Where will the
next meeting be held?
The meeting throughout was har
monious and the enthusiasm seemed
to be a reality. If all the cities and
towns along the proposed line will
get up the enthusiasm exhibited in
Prosperity, and keep it up, the road
will be built' in the near future be
yon-1 the shadow of a doubt. The
question now is what does Newberry
propose to 4o in this matter. None
will deny that it is 'all important for
the prosperity of our city to have
competing lines of road and this
proposed Midland offers us a grand
opportunity. It behooves the busi
ness men to bestir themselves and
take hold of this matter.

We refresh the reader this week
with an extract from Lippincott's
magazine, showing a scene in every
day life, and our purpose being to
check evil and promote good we
give it without sauce, suffering it to
convey its own moral. The writer
Here is a scene at a public table,
to which enters a boy of eight or
nine years, having in his suite a gen.

s-ated, helps instanter to berries,
with the remark,
-"Pupper, gimme some sugar I" The
sugar is given.
"More," says the infant; and a
second sprinkling follows.
"Gimme 'nuther spoonful !' he fur
ter commnands,and cuts short an
gry roar. "I alwus have three !'
Whereupon the father does as lhe is
told, without arguing.:
But let us now repair to the pub.

ing that friends from another hotel
have come to call~ on us, We form
a circle, and are for the moment a
private party, when, suddenly th~ere
appears in our midst a small boy
with a long stick. No one knows
who he is, and he cares very little
who we are;i his sovereign glance
may have discerned that there were
ladies and gentlemen sitting there,
or be may have taken us for so many
posts, but at all events 1t was the i'e
cant central space iwhich was the
chief attraction, and having gyrated
there two or three tLmes shout his

The ne;t event worthy of record
on this same ucessio4n is the arriyal
of three little girls, who take a vastly
greater interest in us than t,he bo'y
did. They were on their way through
the room, when something remarka
ble about us attracted their attention,
and they forthwith stopped and

when her little daqghter was in the'
roomi and what happened then? The
charming lady discovered- after a
tim-after the time, that 1s, that
you had discovered it--that the
child's constant interruptions were
annoying; so she said; 'Run away,
now, Daisy, dear.'' But Palsy did
not want to run away, she perched
herself about qpon the chajns instead
and began to induige in freaks of
fanP3y whichi necessitated .conskant
inteispersions in the conversation of
"Don $ do that, dear," "G o down,"
etc.. etc., with periodical recurrences
to the original ida of her running
away 1'inally, conscious of having
bt one eye and ear for her guest,
and wearied wIih the effort of divid
ing heF attention, the poor lady
makes th:at last supreme appeal of
the American mother, and says,
Piease, palsy," in a tqne that might
mpye a heart of stone. And Daisy
is moved, doubtless, but the thing
has gone on too long ; there are cir
cumstances under which even the
American little girl develops a formu
of embarrassment. With two pairs
of eyes fixed upon her, watching be
tween hope and fear to see what she
will do. she really cannot beat a
graceful retreat, and therefore ignores
the pathos of the situation and ab
ruptly changes the subject by saying
in a lively -manner, "Mamma, I want
to tell you something." Thereupon
follows a controversy as to whether
she shall tell now or reserve the cam
munication for a more convenient
season; it ends in her pntting her
arms around her mo$hey's neelk, and
a long whispering epagles, nf which
the final words are '"May I?' Vis

probably some tacit understanding

as before. Daisy hangs around a
little longer. siiently, to be sure, but
she only takes herself' off when he:

The Evangelist, Rev. Mr. Jones,
who is holding a series of revival
meetings at Bethel Church, Charles.
ton, is doing one of the greatest re
vival works that have ever come
within our recollection. He holds
three services each day, the ~ firsr at
the early hour of seven in the moru
ing, when the mind is fresh and
clear of the day's turmoil, and allits
host of business cares and anxietie,
and the heart pure and clear, 'if it
ever is. The church edifice is filUed
on every occasion. How he...qan
hold up under the sLrain of. three
sermons a day is more than a marvel
to us, unless we credit it to the pow
er of.the 'Holy Spirit. - It is said of
him that while in another State and
County the Court then in session ad
journed each day during .the morning
service, so greatly was his influence
felt. A like circumstarce has never
before occurred. We entertain the
hope that, this reverend gentleman
will favor Newberry with a visit.
