A Volcano In the County. jt
We have reliable information that
there is evidence of volcanic action c
near the surface in this county about o
thirteen muies fron town, on Mr. Joel g
B. Heller's place. About three weeks is
ago a hole in the ground about a foot
square was observed, and a short time
afterwards another near by appeared. b
Those who saw these holes say they re
emitted something like a blue vapor or d
smoke. Mr. F. W. Higgins says he
was at the place a day or two ago, and
in measuring the depth, run a rod he 0
had in his hand for 12 or 15 feet in the s
hole without reaching bottom. The
location is in the yard of a Mrs. Beam t
on a very high hill. The hill has the
appearance in its make-up of having
been thrown up by volcanic action. h
Mrs. Beam says she has felt more or t
less tremor of the earth every night a
since the great earthquake of 1886. t
It may simply be a hole in the n
ground, or it may mean more. It
would no doubt afford a subject of in- n
teresting study for the lover geological h~

THE FARMERS IN COUNCIL.
Special 3Ieeting of the Newberry Coun
ty Club-The Political Side of
The farmers' County Club met in thE
Court house on Monday. The attend.
ance was not large. Mr. R. T. C. Hun
ter, the president, called the conventior
to order and in the absence of Mr. J. C.
Goggans, Mr. J. R. Davidson was re
quested to act as temporary secretary.
Mr. Hunter explained that the object
of the meeting was to keep together and
alive the organization in the County.
Mr. Frank Moon mentioned the fact
that Mr. R. T. C. Hunter and Mr. T. W.
Holloway had been appointed to organ
ize grange clubs in this county and
thought it well to have some information
in regard to this work. Mr. Hunter said
he, had no official information of his ap
pointment. He had been appointed on
previous years for the same purpose. He
did for some time endeavor to carryout the
object of his appointment and organize
these grange clubs, but as a rule he met
with very little encouragement, and on
the contrary lie had been very much dis
couraged. Ie thought the grange was
dead and could not be revived as the
"grange," but that if anything in that
line was accomplished it would have to
be under some other name.
Mr. Julin W. Scott s,hought it very im
portant for the farmers to be united and
to work together for their interests.
Mr. Frank Moon thought farmers
should select men who were farmers to
represent them in the Legislature and
that the whole law making power should
not be left in the hands of the politi

The resolution was put to the house
before discussion and received no affirm
ative votes and only one negative vote.
A reconsideration was had and con
siderable discussion indulged in.
Mr. Jno. W. Scott opened the discus
cussion and put himself on record as op
posed to confining the selection of offi
cers exclusively to farmers or any other
class. He said there were many good
men who were not farmers.
Mr. Frank Moon spoke in favor of his
resolution and thought it a matter of
importance and should be gone into
with a degree of seriousness and earnest
Col. J. C. H. Brown though tthe resolu
tion was entirely too exclusive. He said
there was a great want of interest taken
by farmers in almost everything that
concerned them as farmeers.
Senator J. A. Sligh spoke against the
resolution, lie said that whoever was
put in position of honor or trust should
be the choice of a majority of all the
voters and that the plan of the resolu
tion would not effect that object, which
he wvassure was the object intended to be
accomplished by the mover of the reso
One reason, he thought, why farmers
could not accomplish anything, was
that they would never unite and work
together. That combinations against
them were very powerful and that these
combinations were united. lie thought
Mr. Tillmans' most trusted friends and
lieutenants had gone b)ack on him.
Mr. A. J. Gibson said he could see no
need of such resolutions. The present
mode of selecting by primary was sufli
cient in his opinion.
The President, Mr. R. T. C. unter,
thought there was neced for the farmers
to do something, but just what was best
to be done he did not know and lie did
not knew that the resolution would do
The discussion here came to a close
and on motion cof Senator Sligh the
further consideration of the resolution
was postponed to a future meeting.
On motion of Mr. 0. F. Long the con
vention adjourned sine die.

OUR IIlOS?ERITY LETTER.
Gardening is at a premium-Commer
cial tourists at a discount.
We are not surprised that the proprie
tor of the Prosperity Hotel is a poor
man, and we shall not be surprised if
he remains poor. A man can never
grow rich by feeding people as he does.
We took dinner with him a few days
since and were perfectly astonished at
the bill of fare. It woul.d consume too
much space to produce it here. We have
often eat worse dinners at the Pavillion
and Charleston Hotels where the fare is
from $2.50 to $4 per day. Dickert charg
es only 25 and 33 cents a meal.
3r. R. I. Stoudemayer, who lost his
dwelling and its contents by fire on last
Wednesday, instead of grieving and be
moaning over his losses, has gone to
work like a man and is making every
preperation to rebuild and repair his
losses. A great many of his friends
have contributed largely to the relief of
himself and wife, by giving them arti
cles of clothing, furniture, bedding,
tables, dishes and a great many articles
neces=ary for household and kitchen
purpo-es. Bob says it makes him feel
good to know he has so many real
friends. He was a good old "reb " too,
and these old "rebs" have a fellow feel
ing for one another. Don't understand
me to say that it was only "rebs" who
contributed for they are in the minority.
The younger men and the ladies were
largely in the majority. "Rebs" are
getting comparatively scarce around
On last Sunday night Rev. W. C.
Schaeffer, of Newberry, delivered a lect
ure before the Y. 31. C. A. in Grace
Church. The church was well filled with
an attentive and appreciative audience.
The subject "The ideal man," was
treated in an effective and masterly
manner. The speaker prefaced his lect
ure by laying down the proposition,
"that the history of one man in his own
time and sphere, was the history of the
world." Men of one purpose were a suc
cess always-illustrated by the examples
of Xerxes, Hannibal, Napolean, of Ho
mer, Virgil, Shakespeare, Luther, Cal
vin, Wesley and others. The lecturer
then presented to his audience St. Paul
as a most forcible example of "The ideal
man." His discourse throughout was
replete with profound thought, and was
delivered in a practical manner. His
illustrous example was strongly pictured
to the young men and young women of
our congregation. May one and all en
deavor to attain to the "ideal man-the
highest position in the eternal Kingdom
of God. To attain to this high position
requires an entire renunciation of every
thing of a worldly nature, and a daily
consecration to our Heavenly King.
After a whole week of beautiful and
pleasant weather, we are again between
the outpouring clouds above and the
mud and slush beneath. The farmers
took advantage of the past week's good
weather and the plow share has been
pressed for all it was worth. Busy scenes
on the farm make dull scenes on the
streets and in the stores. Clerks are al
ready beginning to grow real lazy-boys
I don't mean that exactly, but there is a
kind of feeling that when a very few
people come to town, some how or other
we wish nobody would come at all
boys you know it is, elh? After a while
the days will get longer, and the sun
will get hotter, and fewer people will
come to town, and base ball will have a
place in picture and then the boys will
be happy and serene. TUBE.
