NEWBERRY, S. C.
Mr. G. P. Sullivan, a contractor on
the C., N. & L. Railroad arrived here
last Saturday with a large force of
hands, mules, carts, picks, &c., &c., and
this morning (Wednesday) the work of
grading the portion of road between
this place and Newberry was begun.
Mr. Sullivan's force is not a new or
raw set of hands, but it is a force of well
organized and trained hands who un
derstand their business. The work
will be pressed with vigor and dis
patch, and it will not be long before
the grading will be completed to New
berry. We are now satisfied that
trains will run to Newherry on this
road before they will on the Three C's.

audience "a live issue" in the character
of "the dull boy." Mr. Cromer had
not proceeded very far with his "boy"
before be was taken suddenly ill and
had to stop. The audience was not
calm and serene, but were fearful and
anxious when their beloved speaker
was assisted from the stage. The
principal of the school soon announced
to the great relief of the audience that
Mr. Cromer was not seriously ill.
Rev. A. J. Bowers, Principal, then

Another Attempt at Robbery.
Another attempt at robbery was
made on last Saturday night. It has
only been a short time.- since some
negroes broke into the dwelling of Mr.
WV. F. Ewart on a Saturday night
when it wast thought he was at the
store. This time it is in the same neigh
borhood. Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Moody
were at the Opera House on Saturday
practicing singing leaving at home the
servant girl and the children. About
half p)ast nine o'clock the girl heard a
noise in the house and when she in
vestigatea she found it was a man
in the store-room in the back part of
the house. She gave the alarm and
sent for Mr. Moody but the party or
parties escaped leaving behind only
a hat. Several articles had been
thrown out the window but nothing
had been taken away.
The same night some one got into
Mrs. Brown's pantry and succeeded in
carrying away all her Sunday dinner
and some edibles
This thing is getting to be too fre
quent. More strenuous efforts should
be made to capture the thieves.
