The IIelena Sunday-school rarely
fails to remember the Clinton Orphan
age in an annual contribution. A few
days ago. the secretary, Mr. Julien, sent
its little free-will and votive offering
Sl1).73. This amount, though not great,
was given willingly ;moreover, the
school has been reduced in the past few
years by removals from the village.
About forty zhildren have gone to
make their homes elsewhere, and their
places have not yet been supplied.
We have alluded to this matter not
for the purpose of parading it, but
sim.~ply for the purpose of exciting in
terest and sympathy in and with the
noble institution so very near us, and
which draws its maintenance, for sweet
charity - sake, so largely from abroad.
There are about one hundred orphans
in the Clinton Orphanage, and it takes
dollars by the thousand to feed, clothe,
and shelter these little boys and girls;
to light up and giewarmth to their
rooms; and to supply them with books
and stationary, etc., together with
medicines and medical atteution when
Mr. Jacobs is wedded to this work of
love, and is making a beautiful home
for the child ren-a home of refinement
and culture and care, and likewise of
earnest practicability. The discipline,
education and training at the Orphan
age prepares thoughtful, self-reliant,
self-respecting and self-denying boys
and girls for the battle of life.

impherit belief in tihe providences of
God-particularly his general and spe

live more for others and less for our

Then w~ould there be more of self-con

Big Sale of Real Estate.
On last Monday the executors of
Jacob Singley, deceased, offered for
sale and sold some real estate in New
berry. The way that property sold was
an eye-opener for some people, and yet
it did not bring more than it is worth.
for real estate in New berry is worth a
good deal more than it was a few years
ago. We are keeping up with the pro
cession if we are not making as much
noise as some other places.
The corner store on Mollohon Row,
now occupied by Summer Bros., was
sold first, and was bought by Summer
Bros. for 6,225. The one adjoining
this one, and now occupied by 0. H. P.
"ant & Sun, was also bought by Sum
mer Bros. for $4,7:0, making nearly
$11,000 for the two stores.
The store on Pratt street, and at
present occupied by Todd & Davenport,
was also sold, and bought by C.
Mower for $5,1*>.
On the same day at private sale Mr.
Jas. J. Lane bought the store on Pratt
street, and now occupied by J. W. Kib
ler & Co., from C. & G. S. Mower, pay
ing $5,500J for it.
Real estate, it will be seen, is not
depreciating in value in Newberry.
The new schedule on the C. & G.
railroad by which the Anderson train
will run through to Columbia will go
into effect next Monday. The run from
Columbia to Greenville will be made
in six hours. The train leaves Column
bia at 6.20 a. m. and arrives at G reen
ville at 12.-0 p. in. It arrives at New
berry at 8.03 a. m. Returning it leaves
Greenville at 3 p. m. and arrives in
Columbia at 9 p. in., passing Newberry
at 7.16. This will be quite a conven
ience to Newberry and the traveling
public. It gives us too daily passenger
trains between Columbia and Green
ville, and will deliver the Columbia
aily papers at Newberry at 8 o'clock
>n the morning of publication. The
report that the Laurens passenger train
between Laurens and Columbia would
be discontinued is incorrect. It will
be run as heretofore.
A new schedule will likely be put on
the C. N. & L. R. R. between Colum
bia and Clinton about the 15th of this
month. Just what that schedule will
be we are not informed, but there will
probably be a morning train from
Columbia making connection at Clin
ton with the train on the G., C. & N.
railroad going West. This train will
pass Newberry about ten o'clock in-the
Railroad Commissioners Jervey and
Thomas were at Newberry last Thurs
lay. They inspected and received ten
miles of the C. N. & L. R. R. from

A Test Case.
A. M1. Bowers & Co., have instituted
proceedings agaiIst the town of New-.

license over and above the license last
year. The case will be heardl before
Trial Justice Mlay bin on next Monday.
The plaintiffs are represented by John
stone and Cromer, and the town by
Geo. S. Mower, Esq. The council gave
notice in an ordinance that the license
for retailing liquor would be four hun
dred dollars. On the night that the
licenses were to be granted the council
determined to raise the license to 350
and did raise it. All the harroms paid
the additional $100, but claim to have
paid under protest. The question now
comes up on the legality of the action
of council in raising the license. It in

The medical fraternity, hacked up by
carefully compiled statistics, is almost
a unit in declaring that a moderate use
of stimulants conduces to long life. It
is also admitted that an old whiskey is
by far the best stimulant that can be
used. Leading physicians recommend
the I. WV. Harper Whiskey, because it
is pure, possessed of a superior flavor
and bouquet, and is not offered for sale
until it is old and thoroughly matured.

Some of us have for some time been
trying to get this matter stirred up,
but were unsuccessful until Major L. J.
Jones, by much correspondence with
sonie Friends (Quakers) of North Caro
lina, had this matter (the neglected
church property and graveyard) brought
up before the Yearly Meeting of the
Friends of North Carolina. Mr. E. E.
Mendenlal, a committee of one, ac
companied by Rev. Mr. Jones, was
sent here to look after this property. I
On December 1st a meeting was held in
Major Jones' office and was very well
attended by those interested in the
graveyard. It wasdecided that a local
trustee should be appointet to look
after this property and see to clearing

rock posts and wire. I give the follow

On Wednesday, December 3d, we
met to clear off t he graveyard, which
was a sight to behold, and I might say
a disgrace to us who had so neglected
the resting-place of our forefathers. It
was a perfect wilderness-all grown up
in briars, bushes of all kinds and even
good sized trees, so that it was a difli
eult matter for one to get through it.
We did some good work there, and the
place looks auite different.
Now if you who are interested in it
will only give me your aid I will put
the graveyard in such a condition that
you will no longer be ashamed to visit
it. The more money you give me the
better fence I will have put there; and

name is known "far and wide"-from
"Dan to Beersheba." The disolution
is by mutual consent, and the relations
of the parties concerned are of the most
pleasant nature. Mr. Wheeler simply
being desirous of retiring to an agri
cultural life, his wishes and desires
were granted, and all parties are happy
Prof. Frank Dreher has resigned as
principal of Prosperity High School.
His resignation has been accepted by
the Board of Trustees. Prof. Dreher
goes with the best wishes of all our
people to the Lone Star State, where
ever so many of our young men have
gone before. There was no antagonism
between Prof. Dreher and the patrons
rf the school. In fact the school is in
r- prosperous condition, but Professor
Dreher's health is failing, and he thinks
rexas, with a lighter work will restore
what he has lost, in the way of health.
Prof. E. 0. Counts,who is well known
as a first class teacher, will fill the
place just vacated by Prof. Dreher, and
ill will be happy and serene.

Dead Fal l or String Town Ghost Story.
As the most of our friends have never
beard of the story, we will try to tell it,
*id try to stick as cloie to the truth as
, rcumstances will permit. Doubtless
the many readers of this county know
the parties we shall mention, and also
the place. Deadfall is the place; or
rather that is the ancient name, but the
rising generation have given it the
name of String Town. Well, the story
goes, that there was a ghost to be seen
at the old Deadfall every night, (there
was no one living there at the time)
and various were the tales as to what
was seen and heard. So Frank M--,
Dan L- and Newt B- , with his
little son Lawrence, made up a party
of investigation. Frank M-, armed
with a pitchfork, assured the party of
no danger as he was a medium and
could materialize the ghost, but as it
turned out, things materialized too
well. When the party got on the spot
and was walking around the house to
the well, every one stopped. Frank
called for his spirits and they camne too
quick. The p)arty got scared and start
ed to run, some going on one side of
the house, some on the other, and all
getting around about the same time,
and seeing each other, every fellow
thoughit it was the ghost and they broke
off in every direction. Frank M. hap
pened to start across the old field, aod
making a speed that would astonish
Maud S. Nobody ever did know where
he took up at, hut he got home next
morning all scratched up, no hat, and
that pitchfork never has bee'a found,
and he never has exp)lained1 t the sat
isfaction of the womena why he never
got home any sooner; and Newt B.,
poor fellow, got the worst fuight of all;
when lie started to run his little son
grabbed him by tha coat tail and Newt
though t it was the ghost, and he spread
himself with the boy holding on for
his life, not wanting to be left. Now
there was a short turn in the road, and
when Newt made the turn his coat tore
out, arid wvhen the boy saw he was left
he began to yell, and that only made
the ol man get better, aind every few
steps lhe wvould call out to Mollie, his
wife, to open the door. He soon got
home, and the little fellow came along
after awhile, but the old mar. was too
scared to let him in for a good w;hile.
Dan L. being young and wive, he just
cleaned up everything. He got on a
regular stampede with hat in hand,
and an Indian war-whoop every fcw
jumps; he left everything. Daa had a
cap box in his pocket with only a few
caps in it, and every jump the caps
would rattle and Dan would run the
harder, until he ran himself down, and
for a long time, if you would rattle a
cap box Dan would start up and look
for the ghost. None of the party ever
knew what startled them that night,
but some people say it wvas only a cat
fight. Any way, since the Smith Man
ufacturing Comipany has been there the
little Smiths have scared away all the
ghosts. a * *
