A dignified Judge of one of the Courts
of the County makes complaint of cer

the town of Newberry. The corpus of
his honor got very much in the mud at
this place in the road near Mr. Spehl's
shops, just outside the city, as he was
coming to town one night last week.
The judge says the place in question 2
was presented by the grand jury at the l
last term of the Court as needing re
pairs, but nothing has as yet been done J
in that direction. The matter is now
referred to the County Commissioners.

vhat the remark was, and stated that

Rev. C. A. Marks, of Prosperity, was
visiting amongst his members in this
community last week.
The cold wave struck this community
the early part of last week, and ice was
in abundance. Some of our fruit proph
ets say that the recent cold snap has in
jured the fruit crop considerably.
It seems that Easter comes a little
early this year, only about. ten days off
yet. To-morrow one week is said to be
a good time to plant watermelons (Good
Friday). Our farmers should not forget
the day and try their luck.

your own meat, then you can say I live
at home and board at the same place.
Oh! that all of our farmers could say

with plenty of economy and you will

Last Sunday night we had the pleas
ure of listening to an able address de
livered to the Prosperity Y. M. C. A.
in Grace (Lutheran) church by Rev.
J. L. Stokes, of Newberry, from the
subject "Safety."1 Rev. Stokes is an
able speaker and his discourse was in
deed very interesting.
Reports tell us that our chum still
continues courting. There is a creek
running between his place of abode
and his girl's residence and reports
say that a short time ago as he was
on his way to see his girl and coming
to this creek found it swollen to such
a depth that it was impossible to cross,
by waiting until the wee late hours of
the night. So our chum sat there on
his horse grieving over the sad occur
rence until he was reminded of the por
tion of scripture that reads thus: "Oh!
that I had the wings of a dove", and
added to this, saying," then would I fly
over this high water and see my girl,
but the condition I'm now placed in, I
will have to return back home." So
our chum returned back home and
toiled away another long six days work
and pursued his journey again, being
this time successful in his undertaking,
and we learn since, that our chum is
now as happy as a June bug in the hot
month of August. All is well. that ends
