NEWBERRY, S. C,
THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 188f.
The Three C's Railroad has only re
cently been in operation to Lancaster.
The Lancaster Ledger of recent date
states that a reduction in freights has
been the result. The rate on cotton,
for instance, to Charleston has been re
duced 9 cents on the hundred, and a
proportionate rate on other freight.
This is a benefit the farmer will receive.
A like reduction would be the result if
-_could ever get our division con
pleted. But when will our division of
the Three C's be built? That is the
3-ore;tian half of the members ofthe
United States Senate are millionaires.
Mr. W. D. Washburn, recently elected
a member of this body from Minnesota,
is said to be worth $5,000,000. He made
his money in the lumber business.
The Columbia Evening Record has
been sold by the present proprietor,
Mr. W. Nelson Emlyn, to a company
of Columbia capitalists who will take
charge about the first of February. Mr.
Gibbs Gardiner will be managing
editor. The paper will be enlarged and
otherwise improved, and will be issued
every afternoon of the week except
Sunday and Monday. On Monday a
weekly edition will be issued in the
morning. We wish the new enterprise
, ~-,The Orangeburg Times and Demo
,. crat of last week says. "Blind eyed jus
tice will be satisfied at this term of the
court to convict a one-armed negro out
of nine people charged with murder.
The dignity and majesty of the law
must be maintained, if even it does
hang a negro or two occasionally."
The Orangeburg sessions had a heavy
docket and all the capital cases resulted
in an acquittal, except the one case
The tomato crop as put up in cans
last year is estimated by the American
Grocer to have cost the consumers
about $S,000,000. There was a total of
79,666,48S cans, which cost at the fac
tory about $6,000,000. The industry
has grown considerably in the last year
in the Southern States. There is room
for still more growth in the South of
this industry, and a small factory here
at Newberry, we do not believe, would
be a bad investment.
Amidst the dscussion of the public
highways in the country, it might be
.4~ell to discuss the matter of better
streets in the town. During the wet
weather of last week some of the streets
in Newberry, and some of the side
walks, were almost impassable. At any
rate, in such a condition as the princi
pal streets and pavements of our town
N oug-ht not to be in. A little macada
mizing on the most important streets
w ould help matters. The matter is
w~orthy of a little thought at any rate.
MIr. Lewis Purdy has been post
master at Shrub Oak, N. Y., for nearly
fifty years having been appointed in
k14 by Prssident W. H. Harrison, the
g~ rand1father of President-elect Harri
*son. He is now 93 years old an d his
Lwifejs 90 years old. It is said a peti
tion will be--presented to President
SHarrison- to retire Mr. Purdy and grant
hma liberal pension for the remain
Sder of his life. We suppose Mr. Purdy
is the only appointee of President W.
H. Harrison now living, and there will
be little opposition 'to his receiving
fav ors from the younger Harrison.
The Abbeville Press and Banner in
Ssneaking of the project to establish a
c?on factory in that town says it will
not oppose the enterprise. yet it says
that "on the mnoral side of the question,
it would be better for factory operatives
to grow the cotton than to spin and to
That may be true, but will the not
building of the factory keep them on
the farm. There can be no doubt that
there is too great a tendency, on the
part of our white people, to leave the
farms and move to the towns and cities.
We need more producers more small
farmers. There are several reasons for
this inclination on the part of many of
our white people to leave the farm. In
some cases they do not fancy the work
Teesary to make the farm successful.
Tesuccessful farmer must labor with
the hand as well as the head. He-must
not be simply an overseer. Then the
school facilities in many cases are so
'I poor in the country that many people
are induced to move to town in order
to educate their children. If we could
-have a first-class common school in
every community, there would be less
moving from the farm.
We desire to direct attention to an
article on the fourth page of this paper
on the subject of self made men. Tbe
maxim used is an old and homely one,
yet it answers a good purpose in this
case. It is a wrong idea that the simple
f act of going to a college or a university
wsill ediucate a man. The coliege can
only furnish him the necessary means.
conv eniencies and appliances for educa
ting himself. The young man miust
have a thirst for knowledge, and a de
sire to be educated, and great helps can
be given him by the college course:
-otherwise the college course will bf
worth little. An education cannot be
pumped into a man as you would
pump a tank full of water. All educa
tion is self education in one sense. The
college and the university are necessary
* but neither can give the young man art
education u nkss lie exerts himself. WVt
are:s't saymu; one word against thest
1istituio ns, but the young men in oui
colleges', and out of them. should be in
grossed wviih the idea that education i:
constaut work and activity, and
drawing out and development of th<
faculties of the mind, andI only by con
stant and individual efifort and hard
work, continuously performed, car
they becme educated.
THE IMPORTANCE OF UNITY OF
We take the following from an ex
change. It contains some important
truths that are applicable to our town.
We need united effort to further the
upbuilding and prosperity of our con- t
munity. We think it would pay sonic t
of our merchants who never advertise
to make known their business through
the local papers. It would help them
and then it would help the papers pub
lished in the town. The local papers
do a great deal towards the advance
merits of the town. They a'e ever
ready to lend their aid and their
columns to the furtherance of any en- to
terprise that is for the good of the town.
We say this too in all modesty ani hu- th
mility, In their efforts to advance the a,
common interest they do no more than s'
their duty. But the business men'i o !
are thus benefited could further benefit 3
themselves and aid the support of thu- re
papers, at the same time, by adve -
tising more freely. ;
The business men of the community
can in no way better subserve their ;
own interests and the inte:ess of the
town than by united effort in order to
induce trade to the town and by using
the local papers freely with their adver- ci

AN EDITOR ON "HARRISON's POLICY." PC
The farmer we suppose gels more i
free advice thai any other man. su
pecially is the average editor irstituted vi
in the use of this commodity. It is all m
very well, we suppose, and can do little
harm, even if it does no good. The or
Press and Banner says a great deal of d
anxiety is expressed and many labored
articles have been written in the vain
effort to forecast the policy of President st
towards the South. But there is mt
another question that transcends this
in importance to the individual farm
ers of the country. It is the policy to ee
be pursued by the farmers in the work ti
of the farm dur'ng the p-esent year.
The Press and Banner philosophizes as le
follows on "Hai ison's policy:"
"We have no disposition to underra:e th
any of the great questions which may
ag;,ate the couuty, but as a matYYr of I
fact a good turnip patch is of more iu
portance to the citizen tban any policy Si
which Presideift Harrison may adopt.
Again, it is not to be denied Uhat a gooa
pasiure fence would be won h more to,
the farmer than would be his profits!
from a factory on the summit of every mn
ill in the neighborhood. Again, a good ti
mule colt is of more consideration to er
the farmer than the defeat or success of' en
any politicaf party, i a either State or as
naionai polities. Again, a patch of I
long-legged blue ste-amiend colads is 1o
of-more value in tne support of the
family than is the elee;iou of any par-t
ticuldr representative to Congress or.
the advancement of any citizen to the Ii
high ar'd enhled office of Governor' ofo
the State. o

Judging fromi the number of Ken- t
tueky mules sold here every season we
should think a good mule colt or two

Lancaster appear to be as follows:
"The county commissioners of that
county, acting as the financial agents of
the township, through which the Three
C's' road runs, executed bonds in aid
of the road which were deposited with
the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust
(o:,pany, under a trust indenture that

The Result of Tunnelling Red Moantain
Near Birmingham, Ala.
ie [From the New York World.]
ly BIRIINGHAM, ALA, January 24.
't- For two months workmen have been
t- tunnelling Red Mountain, two miles
er from this city, the object being to allow
st the passage of water from the Catawba
er River to Birmingham. From the north
heading the tunnel has been completed
a distance of 300 feet. A few days ago
the workmen struck a cave. This was
soon passed, leaving small openings on
each side of the tunnel. One day last
week an immense amount of dirt and
rock from above caved in completely
filling the tunnel for a distance of fifty
>r- When this had been cleared away
ba the workmen found themselves in the
,e. centre of a large rock-walled room. The
:k cave on the left of the tunnel remained
nt unchanged, lbut the opening on the
:e, right had extended until it was about
le fifty feet in length and fifteen feet high.
m11 So'ne of the men started to explore the
11 cave. After a few winding passages
he they came to an immerse apening, the
Ly descent of which was airlost perpendi
za cular. The passages leading to it were
its carefully examined. The walls were of
.o, solid rock, with only a small crevice
ed here and there. At one place a spring
' ofeclear water was found. When first
ad discovered a bold stream was flowing,
iis but presently it ceased. After an hour
1s- or two it began again. At the beginning
of these periodical spurts the water is
very cold, but it gets warmer and war
mer, until toward the close it has
attained the boiling point. It smells
a like sulphur.
Huge stones were rolled to the en
trance of the pit and pushed in, but no
_body heard them strike. An engineer
~ing expert, who has visited several
extinct craters, and whose knowledge
of geology is not limited, says the
character of the rock and everything
r- about the place indicates that the tun
nnel has encountered a section of the
ycrater of a long extinct volcano. The
ve point wvhere the opening was found is
i- 1,300 feet from the north heading of the
e-tunnel and 400 feet below the surface
f of the mountain.
