This week a colored woman on Gen. e:
Y. J. Pope's place in town found a pe- mn
culiar bird in the chicken house. It is
said to be a very pretty bird, with claws ar
like a hawk, and a green head. Mr. se
Ramage says it is a gallinule. These m
birds, no doubt, were on their way b:
northward and became tired or worn- ar
*out and had to stop. The one found by til
Mr. Keitt had been shot. T1he one t
found at Gen. Pope's is still there and to
alive. The following description of the w
gallinule is taken from the Encyclopedia
"The gallinule is a genus of birdls o>f
the family Rallde, closely allied to the 0
coots. The gallinule is about thirteen 1(
inches in length, the tail being very bc
-short; the general color of the plumage ni
deep blue-brown on the ttpper parts,m
blackish gray beneath, the ridge of the ~
wing and the under tail covers white; c(
the bill is red at the base and yellowish tc
green at the tip; the legs and toes are i
green. In situations favorable for them,
such as artiticial ponds, gallinuies maya
* , be seen often in considerable numbers sI
together, swimming with a pecnliar nod- p:
ding of the head."

Tuesday. The facts as developed before,
the coroner are substantially as follows: ~

her husband, Williams. lie immediately

Nelson, and found himt in a house and
* shot him. Nelson got out of a window
and ran. Williams followed him and
shot him again, and fatally. WilliamsC
made no effort to escape, but came back
and told some others where they could'
find Nelson, and that he had killed him;t
and would do it again if he came to life.
It was also stated in the testimony that W
when Williams shot Nelson, he, Nelson, ni
picked up something to strike Williams.
The coroner's jury found that Nelson C
came to his death iromr a pistol shot a:
wound inflicted by Jeff William..
Dr. G. W. Garmany, who m.ade the be
post mortem examination, says that Nel-f
son was shot through the, brain.

they picked the grains from this head
and stuck them about in the garden, and
they informed us that the wheat is now
looking fine and can count from some of
the grains as high as fifty heads of full
size that have r-prung out from one
grain. This is undoubtedly a new
variety of wvheat.

The Railroad Election.
KYews awd Courier.
CoLMIAu, May 10.-The citizens'
committee met in the council cham-.
her at 7 o'clock tisi evening to foot
up the result of the canvass for sig
natures to the petition calling for an
election in aid of the Columbia, New
berry and Laurens Ratlroad, as was
announced in the News and Courier
this morning. It was found that
there had been signed a good ma
jority of the names of real estate
owners in the township, according
to the county books, at least so a list
prepared for the committee from
these books made it appear, but the
commitLee. found that the number of
snch owners reported on the city
books was much larger than that in.
dicated by thi,s transcript from the
county books, and that, according to
the city figures, they still lacked six
ty-five names of a majority. Although
tihe city list cannot be considered by
the county commissioners in their
action as to the election, it was
deemed proper, in view of this dis
crepancy, to go on and obtain the
number of signatures still lacking, ac
cording to the city books, and in the
meanwhile to have the county list
crone over again andcoprdwt
the transcript obtained by the com
mittee. Both of these things can be
done in the next day or two. and the
committee proposes to have them
accomp)lished as rapidly as possible.
There is now not a shadow of doubt
that the subscription will be pre
sented to the citizens of township
and voted, but c ur up-country friends
are impatient at the long delay in
Columbias action and, therefore,
what is yet to be done must be done
with all haste.

'Th ie'ach'-rs' Convention met at the
Fe lm.e A4alem1y ol 1at 'aturdlay.
Quite a numbn!er of teachers were present,
and considerable interest was shown.
As the d:tv wa- one of those beautiful
days for wh icl May is noted, we reason
ably expected nearly every teacher in
the county present, but in this we were
Three out of five of the lecturers were
on hald. Dr. llolland and Mrs. Jane
Long were absent. Mr. Sale read an
es,ay on "the Teacher as a Student."
The manner in which the subject was
treated showed considerable thought
and study. Mr. Sale insisted earnestly
that the teacher to be successful must be
a most diligent student. The question
arose during the discussion as to the pay
of the teacher. Some claimed that there
is not sufficient inducement to make the
teacher strive to be eminent in his pro
fession. Thirty or forty dollars a month,
they said is not enough to demand the
services of good men ; that as soon as he
enters the school room in our State he is
at the top of the ladder which is for the
teacher not very far from the ground.
Miss Bessie Cannon read a paper on
"Geography," in which was pointed out
the necessity of making the study of this
subject practical and interesting. The
convention were of the opinion that ob
ject lessons are of great use in the teach-'
ing of geography.
Capt. Pifer took as his subject "D.;
cimal Fractions," and by practical ex
amples showed the teachers how to pre
sent this subject intelligently to chil
dren. le said that there is no use let
ting the pupil believe that there is any
thing so very difficult about decimal,
since there is not.
The convention, after Capt. Pifer had
finished, adjourned to meet on the first
Saturday in June at Prosperity.
Some facts came to light during the
reading of Mr. Sale's essay that were
perhaps, unknown to most of u-. There
are 52 white schools in Newberry County
and over 40 of these are open for more
than S months in the year. It is en
couraging, indeed, to know this as most
people think that the greater part of the
schools ar. opened fur not more than
five months in the year. It would seem
then that the teachers get more than the
pitiable sum given by the State. The
Commissioner says that in all of those
schools in which the term is longer than
eight months, the average salary is above
We were informed by one who at
tended the exhibition at the Gallman
Academy on last Friday that it was a
success beyond question, that the chil
dren reflected credit on their teacher and
The teachers present at the associa
tion, report good attendance at their
schools. Mr. Mills, teaching in the
lower portion of the county, says that
his school is nearly as large now as at
any time during the winter.
THE DARKEST HOUR.
For a period of four years I've been a
victim of a very severe and agonizing
case of Salt Rheume, which affected my
hands to such an extent that they al
most became a burden.
My hand became raw and horrifying,
compelling me to keep it covered all the
I've spent hundreds of dollag for va
riotus preparations, but itstead of beine
fitting my condition, they all seemed to
stimulate and encourage the progress of
the miserable disease, until I harl about
given up all hope.
But thank.heaven, "the darkest hour
is just before day,'' and I am rejoiced to
know that a positive cure has been found,
which is known as B. B. B.-Botanic
My family all rejoice at its magical
curative powers in giving me relief. My
hand has been cured and resembles a
burnt surface after being healed over,
more than anything else. It has also
cured my two children of a loathesome
form of Itch which had resisted all pre
vious treatment. I refer to any business
house in Moody and to Thomas Payne,
Druggist, of whom I purchased the
goods. Signed. W. A. BRYANT.

FLESH SLOUGING' OFF INI PIECES.
For two years I have been confined to
bed with a loathsome form of Blood
Poison, which had about eaten me up,
and I and others had no hope of a re
covery. For a while I could neither
walk, sit down, nor lie down, only in
misery as my flesh seemed to be falling
off my bones in pieces as big as a hen
egg. My appetite was lost, my bones
ached and pained me, and friends even
shunned me. I used various blood pu
rifiers without benefit, and several phy
sicians treated me until large sums of
money had been expended, but not one
particle of good did any one give me.
On the 19th of February, 1886, Mr. F.
R. Jackson called to see if I was not
dead, es it.was thought I could not en
dume my suffering much longer. He
concluded to try B. B. B. on me and got
a bottle from Mr. Brockington, at Beau
fort, S. C., and before one bottle had
been used Ilcommenced gainingstren gth,
my appetite improved, sores commeinced
healing and when two bottles bad been
used I w,;s on my feet and walking
around to the astonishment of every
body. MRs. LAURA HART.
