On last Saturday night the barn and
stables of Mr. M. H. Kem n, just
accross the Saluda on the Edgefield
side, were destroyed by fire. The fire
was in the early part of the night about
7 o'clock. Mr. Kempson lost all his
food consisting of fodder,corn and oats,
but saved all his stock. His loss must
be $1,000 or $1,500; but we have been
unable to secure definite particulars.
He had a considerable quantity of oats
and other food. We understand that
there was $500 insurance, but we are
not positive about that.
Mr. Kempson we understand thinks
the fire was incendiary.
That Up-Town Telegraph Office.
Mr. W. R. Cathcart, manager of the
Western Union Telegragh Cmpany
in Columbia, was in Newberry last
Saturday to look over the field and
consider the advisability 'of establish -
ing an up-town telegraph office. He
was met at the depot by Mr. 0. McR.
Holmes. He looked at the buildings
on Caldwell Street, near the old post
office, and also Mr. Scott's building,
* corner of Caldwell and Friend Streets,
but this latter is now occupied by the
School Commissioner. Mr. Cathcart
says he will establish the office if he
can get a suitable building on reasona
ble terms. It is needed and we hope
the building can be secured.

From the Newberry correspondence
of the News and Courier, we learn tat
Mrs. J. Fleming Brown, formerly Miss
Bennie Scurry, gave a brilliant recep
tion on the last night of the old year,
complimentary to her visitors, Misses
Helen M. Mobley and Louella Strother,
of Edgefield. Mrs. Brown received in
elegant black lace and diamonds, as
sisted by Miss Mobley in a costume of
crimson en traine, with front of Nile
green enbroidery, and Miss Strother
in white nun's veiling with black vel
vet bands. The rooms were all thrown
open for enjoyment, and the old year
went out amid the sound of revelry
and sparkling toasts to the evening and
its memories. At a grand New Year's
ball on the next evening, these ladies
were again prominent for their beauty,
grace and elegant costumnes.-Edgefield

ROBERTSON & GILD:ER's
Fire at Pomaria.
On last Wednesday night the store
house occupied by Mr. Edward R.
Hipp, of Pomar;", and his entire stock
of goods were destroyed by fire.
The house belonged to Thos. W.
Holloway & Son and was valued at
$1,000. They had $500 insurance.
Mr. Hipp thinks that his loss is not
less than $9,000, and he had $4,800 in
surance on his stock of goods and $200
on a warehouse that he had built ad
joining his store, and which was also
The vacant storehouse belonging to
the estate of Wm. Stone was also 1
burned. No insurauce.
The postoffice was kept in Mr. Hipp's
store and it was also burned, although 1
the loss on this is merely nominal.
The fire was discovered about 11
o'clock and had gotten under such
headway that there was no opportuni
ty to save anything.
Mr. Hipp thinks the fire rmust have
been incendiary, as he had had no fire
in his store since about 11 o'clock on
the day before, and was in there about
7 o'clock at night to distribute the
Laurens mail and there was no sign of
fire at that time.
The loss falls heavily upon Mr. Hipp,
who is a young man just starting in i
business to himself. He has not yet I
determined whether he will re-open at
Pomaria or not. He is a fine business i
man, and will succeed.
This is the third store house that has f
been burned on this same spot. The
first was burned by members of Sher- (
man's army and the second several
years ago, when a Mr. Reid was mur- f
dered and the store house burned down i
on him. c

the other buildings were saved from

A Brilliant Jewish Marriage.
Mr. M. S. Epstin, of Columbia, but
formerly of Newberry, was in New
berry this week on a happy mission.
He has many friends and acquaintan
ces her.- who will wish him many
years of happiness and prosperity. The
import of his mission was to wed Mi s
Pauline Mittle, the beautiful and
charming daughter of our townsman,
Mr. H. Mittle, which happy event took
place at Klettner'sJHall on Wednesday,
at half past eleven o'clock.
The beautiful and impressive cere
mony of the Jewish Church, which
made the twain one flesh, was spoken
by Rabbi Leo Reich, of Atlanta, Ga.
These beautiful ceremonies are al
ways witnessed with interest by our
people when the occasion presents, and
at this happy union there was a large
attendance of the friends of the con
tracting parties. The ceremony is a
very impressive one, and the solemn
words of counsel ef the Rabbi fell upon
attentive and listening ears.
The hall was handsomely decorated
for the occasion in evergreens and ivy,
and especially beautiful was the cano
py under which stood the contracting
parties. Above the bridal pair hung
the beautiful wedding bell of pure
white japonicas, beneath a canopy of
white satin, and behind was a back
ground of evergreens and ivies.
As the bridal party came in, Mrs. P.
Robertson played that beautiful wed
ding march from Lohengrin, "Faith
ful and True," and as they marched
out she rendered one of Mendelssohn's
soul-stirring wedding marches.
Above the canopy was the mono
gram, E. M., and a horse shoe in ever
The groom marched in with his mo
ther, Mrs. Epstin, and the bride upon
the arm of her father, Mr. H. Mittle.
The bride was dressed in a beautiful
cream white brilliante with front of
satin stripe moire en train, with veil of
silk brussels net. Upon the corsage
was a beautiful bouquet of orange blos
soms and japonicas. The bridesmaids
were all elegantly attired in white satin.
The attendants were Mr. Joe Epstin
and Miss Esther Mittle.

They were the recipients of numerous

One feature of especial interest in
connection with this union was the
fact, to which the Rabbi alluded, that
four generations of the groom were
present to witness the ceremony, they

The Sub-Treasury Scheme.
It is strauge and hard to find a plau
siisle reason for the strong opposition
of many persons to the main feature of
the farmers' demands-the sub-treasury
plan-especially since it is now held
and admitted by its originators and
advocates that the only principle con
tended for, is a flexible currency, avoid
ing both redundancy and stringency.
Comparatively few of the thinking
men in our order contend for the en
actment into law of the details of this
plan. But who, inside or outside of
the order, would not be rejoiced if we
could get a currency free from that
stringent pressure, at times, which
forces into bankruptcy and ruin many
honest men, by playing into the bands
of those n ho are the possessors of mil
lions, both in these United States and
other countries. T surely think that
we would all crowd to the polls to vote
for such a currency.
Now the phan, under consideration,
is the one submitted by the farmers to
obtain such a currency, leaving it to
our legislators to give up a better plan
if this one is impracticable Has not
the Secretary of the Treasury said that
"we need a flexible currency"-not a
fixed currency, the same at all seasons
-the effects of which are runious,
especially to those whose money crops
are harvested during three of four
mounths of the year, by making money
high from its scarcity, and that for
which it is exchanged correspondingly
low from its comparative abundance
during those months. In addition to
this trouble comes the deplorable fact
-a fact which we thiuxt all good men
and citizens should regret-that a few
men hold the lever in their hands to
further enhance this oppressive power
of a stringent currency, by withhold
ing from circulation an immense sum
of money, in order to realize tremend
ous interest, which eventually reaches
down through its various channels,
until it strikes the producers with its
blighting power and through them in
jures the whole country.
Does not one feature of this sub-treas
ury plan commend itself to any ordi
narily, intelligent, unprejudiced man,
viz: it proposes to base the money
issued by government on the agricult
ural products of the country? Now we
all know that money has only an ex
changable value. What is it exchanged
for? The very things upon which the
plan under discussion proposes to base
it. If this is not good as far as it goes,
towards securing a currency, free from
redundancy and stringency, adopting
itself to the needs of the country, then
tell us its deficiency and let us have
one that is.
The principles advocated by agricul
turists were at first jeered at by those
who should at least have given them
serious thought, but truth, like Ban
quo's ghost, "will not down." Our
thoughts and views are now receiving
attention from every direction, and
there will doubtless result legislation
which will greatly benefit the whole

opposes with severe and often unjust
criticism, whatever the other does,
whether it be sincere or selfishly de
signing. The object of our order is to
harmonize all classes and all interests
as far as lies in our power. All organi
zations, whether religious or secular,
have their unworthy members, and we
are no exception to the rule. Let us
all be hopeful, both in and out of our
organization, that a better day is dawn
ing, not only for those who till the soil
but for every business, trade and pro
