A -ewberrian Uses the Cowhide in
Saturday's News and Courier con
tained the following:
AUousTT, May 10.-At 2 o'clock this
afternoon Mr. Milton Young,salesman,
and Mr. E. B. Blease, of Newberry, S.
C., collector of P. F. Collier, publishers
of New York, engaged in a difficulty in
which Mr. Blease freely used a cow
hide upon Mr. Young. The difficulty
occurred in front of the Adkins House,
where Mr. Blease is boarding. Young
drove up to the Adkins House
and held an interview with Mr. Blease
and ordered him to deliver at once
some books he had sold. Mr. Blease
told him he could not deliver them to
day, but would do so to to-morrow.
Mr. Young tben ordered him to do as
he commanded, but Mr. Blease refused
to obey, as Young did not have
authority to command him, so he
claims. Mr. I,iease then claims that
Mr. Young insulted him and when
asked to retract refused. Mr. Blease
then got a cowhide, and Mr. Young,
who was in the buggy, jumped out and
started running through Hegge's
stables, closely followed by Mr. Blease,
who freely used the lash. After run
ning about one hundred yards Young
found no escape, as the back gate was
locked, and Mr. Blease then closed
upon him and struck him with the butt
end of the whip on the head, raising
a welt and badly skinning his fore
head. Mr. Young than ran back out
through the front entrance, and the
fight or flight ended. Mr. Young
claims that he struck Blease with his
fist. Both parties have been unfriendly
for several days.
Mr. Blease made the following state
ment to the Augusta Chronicle :
"This difficulty has been brewing for
some days. Mr. Young is only an
agent working on commissions. In my
position as deliverer of the books, and
colletor. I have to give a fifteen
hundred dollar bond. My position
gives me authority over Mr. Young,
and he has not authority over me. I
met him here accidentally, and natu
rally we have been thrown much to
gether. He has frequently used rough
language to me, but has always turned
it off with a laugh, and I did not think
he meant anything by it. This after
noon he told me while waiting in a
bugry, to deliver some books im
mediately. I told him that I would not
do it; that I would deliver them to
morrow. He used very insulting lan
guage to me then that I would take
from no man. I came down stairs and
got a whip from Mr. Adkins. Going
outside I caught hold-of the horse and
told Mr. Young to get out of the buggy.
He did, but ran across the street and
through the stable. I followed him,
using the whip. It broke, and when
I cornered him I used the. butt end.
He ran out again and struck a drum
mer who was standing in front of the
stable. I amn sorry the thing happen
ed, and if I had stopped to think I
would not have noticed Mr. Young.

At our last municipal election we had
an independent ticket, and of course all
could not be satisfied. Now we have
an independent market and everybody
is happy and serene, and the butchers
too, and all is moving on smoothingly.
Mr. G. B. Cromer, addressed a
large audience in Grace Church on last
Sunday night in behalfof the Woman's
H ome and Foreign Missionary Society
in strong, eloquent and unmistakable
language. The speaker divested every
man, whether Christian or not, of all
his lame excuses, and laid the duty
of every man perfectly bare at his feet,
supported by the most unanswerable
arguments. The lecture is regarded by
all as being of a high standard. Mr. W.
K. Sligh was also advertised -for the
same occasion, but was prevented from
being present by sickness.
The concert and ice cream festival for
the benefit of the Prosperity High
School, came off as billed, and to say
that it was a success, would be to put
it in too mild a form. The entertain
ment was liberally patronized by the
people of town. The concert was
simply grand. Not an error, or mis
take in the whole programme. Each
piece, part and scene, was not only
well rendered, but each in itself was
full of life, vigor, wit, humor, and at
the same time was edifiying and eleva
ting. We have often paid 75 cents to
a theatre that was not half so good.
The faculty seem to possess rare quali
ties for training the young in more
than one monotontous direction. Re
ceipts for the evening about $43.

It is no wonder that the strawberries I
dried up and the afternoon sun took
on an unnatural glare when it went

July sun in the middle of May is a
great weather freak. We hope now that
it is becoming more natural we :shall I
have a season for the grain and for
transplanting purposes. The weather
is delightful after the late electrical
discharge and currents of wind that
have swept the atmosphere. I)r. Pope
said that the weather Tuesday morning I
was in the condition that an old friend 1
of his used to speak of thus: "Pure and
elastic, and quite electric."
It was thought by sonic that the re- 0
moval of the prayer meeting to the
church would lessen interest in the
service, but it does not. There were be- i
tween fifty and sixty persons present 1
last Sunday night. This is encourag
ing, and it is hoped that the interest I
will not only not diminish but that it
may continue to Increase.

We had a nice shower Monday night
which was very much needed. Up to
his time we were getting pretty dry.
Farm work was almost suspended.
We farmers had began to grumble like

eemed to them like "laying by" time.

enough to work, consequently Liiere

I think the wheat crop will be a little

Peterkin's, which he says is a most
xcellent farm. Down near Elloree,
e says, the land is very productive
nore so than ours. The country is
evel, and easy to cultivate; that he
iever saw but one gully while in that
art of the county. He Inquired the

Lecture on Matrimony.
This all-important and most popular
subject now (as ever) on the tapis was
discussed by the Hon. Y. J. Pope last
Friday night. It was a sensible, practi
cal, earnest and "suggestive" talk.
The speaker did not linger at the
trysts of the nations to tell their styles.
How the proud Castilian came to wed
the Moorish maiden; whether the mer
curial lover of La Belle France is more
or less ardent than his neighbor across
the channel, by the lakes of Killarney
or under the blue mists of the Mourne.
Whether the merry wives of Albion
are as petite and graceful or so queenly
a: the representative daughters of Co
lumbia, and all that. He had no time
for this. He had matters of moment
to ta!k about and no time to spare. He
took it for granted that his fair young
hearers knew that the wedding bells of
Newbcrry were just as sweet as the
"chimes of Normandy" or Norway;
and that they who vowed and vowed
again "under the linden" were neither
more sweet, nor happy, nor true to their
troth than they who plighted undying
love under the palmetto. He knew
that they knew or would know ere
many moons hung their crescent in
the sky, that whether Scotch-Irish,
Celt or Saxon, Norman-French or Teu
ton, it was all the same; for were not
these their grand-sires, who had come
across the sea whispering
"It's we two, it's we two. Ws we two for aye,
Just as long as hearts are true and heaven be
So he went at once to his objective
point, and showed that the marital
tree of Carolina was planted in the cleft
of a rock; that the commonwealth al
most stood in a minority of one upon
the divine code-backed. perhaps, only
by bonnie Scotland. That the institu
tion ordained by Jehovah in Eden-by
which the twain were declared one
flesh, and which was confirmed and
blessed by the Incarnate God at Cana
of Galilee-that man dare not put
apart what He had so completely uni
ted, has always been the ideal marriage
of South Carolina.
Our State, the lecturer said, has ever
stood as a wall of adamant against the
most miserable heresy of divorce, and
he would now sound the alarm against
the encroachment of this and related
evils now so menacing; that marriage
will never prove a failure so long as we
conform to the divine law. He said
that while the State did not grant di
vorce, the comity of States caused it to
allow divorced parties of other common
wealths to marry here.
His argument, from a legal and ethi
cal point, was both strong and good, for
he had basal truth to stand upon. He
spoke of the interdicted marriages-the
interracial aud consanguineous, and
those prohibited for muental maladies,
etc., and read the Statute of Henry
VIII. in which long list of impossible
marriages, it is declared that no man
marry his mother or his grand
