Dr. J. M. Kibler, the secretary of the
A'umei Association of Newberry Col

Ramage, Jr., now of New York, in
which Mr. Ramage, in so far as he can
now, accepts the invitation to deliver
the next address before the association.
Mr. Ramage is one of the recent grad

1 ',ags to be Attended To.
It is important to the town of .New
berry, at large, as well as to every indi
vidual in it, that every precaution should
be exercised to preserve the good health
of her citizens. The board of health
should recommend everything necessary
to be done, and the city authorities
should cooperate with the board in this
matter. There have been several cases
of fever reported at the factory, and
some of them have proved fatal. We
are told that there are several local
causes over there which may help to
produce this fever, and which at least
are repulsive to cleanliness. This mat
ter we understand has been brought to
the attention'of the council, and we
trust will receive immedi:ate atten
Let everything be done to preserve
the good health of Newberry.

The Newberry cornet Band
Gave an open air concert from the
court house piazza on Monday evening.
Under the efficient instruction of Mr. J.
W. Taylor the band has made rapid and
excellent advancement, as was fully ev
idenced by the performance Monday
evening-the first apperrance before the
public. Newberry had the finest ama
-teur band in the State several years, and
enjoyed that reputation abroad, as was
testified to by the unanimous verdict of
traveling men on all occasions, and by
*engagements at the State Fairs and
elsewhere. The band was broken up
by the removal of a number of its mem
bers from Newberry. The present band
-although it has been in existence such
a short while-gives fair promise of tak
ing the high p)lace of its predecessor.

teacher, but he has sound material to
work on., and their quick improvement

tit In reading the accounts of the child- let

Greenville and Barnwell Counties, we tb
were very forcibly impressed with the fre
the importance of mothers securing respon- ho
een sible and discreet nurses. In towns es- er
ily pecially, at least two-thirds of the mo- thi
thers have colored nurses of immature s
years, and destitute of any sympathy or
mng discretion. For hours, and even half
ew days, the mothers do not know where
liss their little treasures are, and to whait
car. tortures their little helpless babies are ]
L. subjected by these inconsiderate nurses- he;
md We have ourselves seen a number of ou:
on these nurses congregate in some seclu- thi
>ar- ded place, where the babies are left in ha:
their carriages, or other places, probably fet
is the hot sun, and they proceed to amuse br<
, themselves in a manner suitable to their tel
.s. depraved natures, and if baby becomes er
fretful from heat, sleep or hunger, it is th
g then :lapped, cuffed, pinched, stuck with Ea
pins and needles, and subjected to other
on- tortures known only to the irresponsi
ac- ble nurse. If inquiry is made as to the
ved bruises and marks and savage imprints,
a'you are blandly told that baby "fell
vas down," "bumped her head,"' "stick fied tim
nc p and hit her," or some other improl' ~
the able reason is given. Mothers, if possi
ble, do not employ these immature and of
utterly irresponsible nurses. You have at
no idea how your little precious treas
ures are tortured and abused when away
ths from you. Besides this, these nurses i
teach them all manner of rough, uncouth T.

E. S. HERBERT. P. M.
Three years ago I contracted a blood I
poison. I applied to a physician at once
and his treatment came near killing me.
I employed an old physician and bhen
went to Ky. I then went to Hot Springs
and remained two months, but nothing
seemed to cure me permanently, al
t.hough temporary relief was given me.
My condition grew worse and I applied
to a noted quack, but I did not improve.
I then used a preparation which was
pre=cribed "gratis," but it contained too
much alcohol and aggravated my suffer
ings. I then placed myself under the
treatment of a noted Nashville physi
cian and for a time was benefitted, but
by fall I returned home a ruined man
physically and financially, with but lit
tle prospects of ever getting well. My
money being exhausted, 1 did not know
what to do- In May, 188", my mother
persuaded me to get a bottle of B. B. B.
(made in Atlanta) and I did so to gratify
her, but to my titter astonishment I had
not finished the first bottle before every
ulcer had been healed.
To the present time I have used five
bottles and have received more benefit
than from all the rest combined; and I
am satisfied that B. B. B. is the most
wonderful b'ood purifier -ever before
known, and I urge all afflicted young
men to try one single bottie and be con
vinced. I can truly say I think it the
best medicine in the world.
Z. T. HALLERTON.
Macon, Ga., May 1, 1886.
For many years I have been afflicted
with Rheumatism combined with some
Kidney troubles. Indigestion finally
idded to my misery and I soon became
reeble and very nervous, and my whole
iystem was prostrated. Several physi
ians were employed and numerous
itent medicines resorted to without
enefit. After seeing so many testimo
iials extolling the wonderful merits of
B. B. B., I commenced its use and the
;tects was like magic. Rheumatic pains
~eased, my kidneys were relieved and
ny constitution improved at once, and
cheerfully recommend it to others who
nay be similarly afflicted.
