inflamed you have a rumbling sound or

unless the inflammation can be taken

A Serious Mishap to Mr. W. H. Griffin.
Mr. W. H. G-riffin, yard master of the

with a ser'ous accident on Tuesday.
He was at the time in charge of a train

The train was passing through thick
woods where the trees were so near the
track that the limbs brushed against
the side of the cars. Mr. Griffin was
seated in the cab and a limb struck
him in the eye, causing a very severe
injury, and it is feared that he will
lose the sight of the eye.

Garlington, was, while quite a young
man, a midshipman in the United
States Navy, but resigned at a time
when his chances for promotion were
very promising.--Columbia Register,

The second primary election in the
Third Congressional District was held
last Friday. The candidates were Col.
D. K. Norris, of Pendleton, wbo had
the endorsement of the alliance and
who received in the first election 4744
votes. Col. Gco. Johnstone, of New
berry, was the other candidate, and
received in the first election '3 votes,
and did not have the endorsement of
the alliance but went before the voters
of the district on his own merits as a
Democrat and a man. Some of his
m<,st ardent supporters and admirers
were strong alliance men. He received
the nomination by a small majority,
but still a majority. The vote stood for

The news was received in Newberry 2
on Saturday and there were many per
sons here and from the country who
awaited anxiously every telegram re
ceived. The results of many boxes
came in from the district on Friday
night, but not enough to estimate with
any degree of certainty the result. In
fact in a race as close as this only the
official count could give the result.
The news received here Saturday,
however, was the same as the official
returns except that Johnstone's vote in
Pickens should have been 529 instead
of 531, which makes his majority two
votes less than shown on the extra
printed by The Herald and News Sat
When the news came Saturday of
Johnston's victory there was great re
joicing among his friends in New berry.

hundred or more came up from Pros

returns and declare the election of
ficially. Monday of this week was the I
day fixed for that meeting. Under the
rules of the party the county chairmen
from the several counties in the Dis
trict,make up the committee.
As stated elsewhere the editor of the
Herald and News was requested to act
as Secretary of the Newberry Execu
tive Committee on Saturday: Chair
inan Sligh was absent on account of
sickness. - Arrangements had to be
made to have a representative at Bel
ton on Monday. The committee passed t
a resolution requiring either the acting
chairman or acting secretary to go.
Acting Chairman Reagin said it did -
not suit him to go, so the duty de
volved on the acting secretary. It did I
not suit us to go but we consented,and 1
to be sure that our - authority to act
would not be questioned the committee
gave the following written authority:

When we reached Belton it was
found that the members from Pickens
and Oconee were absent. E. B. Gary, .
froni Abbeville, and A. C. Latimer,
from Anderson, were present. Mr.
Latimer did not think the authority4
we had -to represent Newberry sufli

thorize us to act it would be sufficient.
So we telegraphed Mr. Sligh and he
replied authorizing us to act in his
place. That satisfied Mr. Latimer.
But in the meantime Mr. Jno.W. Rea

as he was acting chairman and came,
we turned the papers over to him and
he represented Sewberry. WVe have

WVhen we reached Belton there was
some talk of a contest being put in by
Col. Norris' friends of the Pelzer box,
and for that reason Mr. Latimer de-1
sired a full committee. Johnstone's <
friends, who were there from every
county in the District, were satisfied
that he had received the nomination
on a fair count, and they were deter
mined that he should have it, but they]
were very quiet. Mr. Latimer tble
graphed for Messrs. Odell and Strib
bling, menmbers of the committee from
Pickens and Oconee, respectively. No
tice was also sent Col. Norris to be
present. The organization of the comi
mittee was put off until Tuesday morn-1

box was read. In the meantime C'ol.
Norris was in consultation with his
friends. The notice was directed to the
Executive Committee of Anderson
County, but in their meeting on Satur
day the votes from this box were
counted as the election in the county
would not have been changed if it were
thrown out. The following is a copy:

aid he did not know until the day be
ore that the committee would meet
hat day, and it was only in answer to
e call which intimated that there
night have been some irregularities in
he election on Friday that lie had
ome. After reaching Belton he had
vith friends enquired into the alleged
rregularities, and, from the best in
6rination lie could get, be did not
link he would be ;varranted in con
esting the election, and he did not
>ropose to follow the investigation fur
He had gone into the primary deter
nined to abide the result, andhe would
low leave the contest in the hands Of
he committee, for he did not see that
ie would be warranted in following it
ip further. He said it was far from
irn or any intention of his, to inject
nything into the contest that would
ause dissension. Yet he still stood for
he principles for which he had fought
n the campaign.
This ended the contest and the coni
nittee declared Johnstone nominated.
Immediately after the an uounceient
if the result the crowd repaired in
rout of the Hotel where Col. John
tone made a very handsome speech,
hanking his friends for their support
Lnd promising them his best effortsas

We had the pleasure of taking dinner
vith Mr. A. C. Latimer, Chairman of

Johnstone Receives an Ovation.
Mention is made elsewhere of the
ejoicing in Newberry on Saturday over
he news of the success of George John
tone in the Congressional primary on
ast Friday over his competitor, Hon.
). K. Norris.
On yesterday afternoon it was learned
hat Col. Johnstone would reach New
erry on the afternoon train. In view
>f that fact a carriage with four..In-hand
Lnd the Newberry Band and about one
iundred citizens repaired to the depot
o give him'a welcome home.
As he stepped on the platform a yell
vent up for Johnstone that would
iave touched the hardest heart. His
rends were delighted but.feltmno spirit
f bitterness to any competitor, It was
impe joy over the success of New
erry's choice. He acknowledged the
onor thus paid him in a few words
,nd a a sdriven to his home. The New
>erry Band marched behind the car
jage as it drove up Main Street.
Arrangements have been made to
mave a gathering of the Democrats at
fewberry on Saturday afternoon when
ol. Johnstone will address his friends.
Everybody is invited to be here and
ake part. Newberry will do the hand
ome thing on this occasion and every

Col. Johnstone was the recipient of a
arge number of congratulatory tele

mittee of three persons from the town
and ten from the cot itry were appoint
ed to solicit subeci ptions for the enter
prise. The committee from town are
H. C. Moseley, A. H. Kohn and L. S.
Bowers. From the country Rev. J. A.
Sligh, L. L. Dominick. A. N. Boland,
J. A. C. Kibler, R. T. C. Hunter, Jnc.
R. Perdew, J. S. Hair, W. P. Pugh,

D. Hardy at large.
The primaries are over, and every
thing has quieted down though every
body is not hapny and serene, The
"ins" are giad ana the 'outs' naturally
wish they were in. The second prima
ry was the most e:;uiting and hotly
contested campaign, (we mean the Con
gressional) that we have been in since
the memorable days of '76. The friends
of both Johnstone and Norris put in
the best work they possibly could com
mand. Nearly every body seemed de
termined that his man should win.
The friends of Johnstone were confi
dent that with proper work he would
win, and on the other hand, Norris'
friends were equally confident that he
would win. A large crowd of - the
friends of both men, eagerly wai)ed
around the telegraph office until a late
hour with the hope of hearing some
thing Oeinite, but the office closed
leaving all in doubt. Next morning
the anxious ones again rallied, and
telegrams were plied to various places.
Finally it was announced that Col.
George Job rstone bad won the fight by
a small majority, A tremendous and
continuous'shout began at th~e tele
graph office and rapidly spread over
A body of about fifty of our best
citizens made arrangements to go to
Newberry, and with Col. Johnstone's
friends there, hold a grand jubilee.
These.nien boarded the 7.30 train on
the C. N. & L. road, and sped away to
Newberry, where Col. Talcot had gen
erously agreed to hold the Anderson
train until their return. The boys left
with a shout, shouted at Newberry,
and came back home with a shout. So
moe it be. .YUJBE.
A Healthy Growth.

other preparations. It is a positive cure
for all Blood and Skin Diseases. The
medical fraternity indorse and prescribe
it. Guaranteed and sold by Beicher

It is surprising that people will use'a
common ordinary p ill when they can
secure a valuable English one for the
same money. Dr. Acker's English
pills are a positive cure for sick-head
ache and all liver trouble. They are
small, sweet, easily taken 'and do not
grip. Sold by Belcher, Houseal & Kib
