A TYPICAL EASTER.
Appropriate Services in the Churches-A
Day Without a Cloud.
Last Sunday was the balmiest day
so far in 1891. The sun shone in splen
dor on the Easter morn, and the
churches of New berry were all well at
The Lutheran, Methodist and Epis
copal churches were decorated for the
Easter occasion. and the services had
special reference to the Resurrection.
At the Lutheran church the decora
tions were almost entirely confined to
the pulpit and chancel. A large cross
of frosted leaves was conspicuous
against a background of dlark green
laurel in the recess in rear of the pulpit.
There was a profusion of rare pot plants
artistically arranged on the sides and
in front of the pulpit, and the reading
desk was entwined with the royal
colored wisteria and violets. The chan
cel railing was entwined with ivy and
yellow jasmine. There were two
mottoes on white grounds in letters of
alternate colors: "Why seek ye the
living among;the dead," and "The Sut,
of Righteousness has Risen." The pul
pit and reading desk were also covered
with draperies of white satin. While
not very elaborate, the decorations
were very pretty.
The communion was administered to
a large congregation, and four persons
were received into the church. The
confirmation will take place on Whit
sunday. A special Easter oflering was
made by the congregation for missions
and church extnsion.
Rev. W. C. Schaeffer, the pastor,
preached the Easter sermon at night
to a large congregation. His discourse
was able and thoughtful, and referred
especially to the general resurrection
and the future life.
The music in charge of Mrs. P. Rob
ertson, the organist, was well rendered
at both services. The Easter anthem
at the morning service was in manu
script, and was composed by Prof. E.
Louis Ide, of Staunton, Va., especially
for Rev. W. C. Schaeffer. At the night
service the anthem by Wi. Dressler,
"He is Risen," was sung.
The Methodist church was prettily
decorated for Easter. There was a
beautiful cross of red japonicas in rear
of the pulpit and the windows were
festooned with garlands of green leaves.
The windows also held each a hanging
basket of hydrangeas. A mound from
which rose beautiful calla lilies, roses,
and begonias made a charming eftect
in front of the pulpit. The mottoes
"Lo, He is Risen" and "A Joyful
Easter" were well displayed in letters
of green in rear of the pulpit.
Rev. W. W. Daniel, the pastor,
preached bothmorning and night. The
sermons were appropriate to the Eas
ter festival and were listened to by
The music at toth services was led
by the Misses Metts, and was very
good. The anthem in the morning,
"Lift your glad voices," was a special
feature of the music.
The Episcopal church was also deco
rated, and lay reading held by Capt.
N. B. Mazyck.
The vestry of St. Luke's Episcopal
church met on Easter Monday and
elected the following wardens and ves
try for the ensuing year:

On last Saturday Messrs. Rhett

in Newberry in searctl of two stolen
horses. On Friday night Mr. Madison
Ferguson and Mr. Joe Phinney each
ad a horse stolen from their stables.
They tracked the horses in the direc
tion of Newberry, but up to this time
have been unable to obtain any clue as
to the guilty parties. Mr. Phinney was
in Newberry Monday and called at T1he
Herald and News office and informed
us that one of the horses was a bay
mare, medium size, rather thin. The
other was a sorrel horse, pony build, in
fine fix, with scar above.the eye and
on left forearm, caused by barbed, wire
Mr. W. H. Sondly on the same night
lost his horse, but he turned up at
home next day without the saddle. He
was visiting at Mr. J. Cal. Neel's.
about a mile from Newberry, and had
hitched his horse to the fence. When
he came out to go home about 11 o'clock
the horse was gone.
Two Boys Trying to See the World.
On last Saturday Chief of Police, C.
W. Bishop, received a telegram from
Mr. J. N. Pool, of Belton, S. C., to
look out for two boys on the Columbia
train and arrest them if found. They
were there and Mr. Bishop took thenm
in charge and gave them a cell in the
guard house and notified Mr. Pool of
On the Anderson train Mr. D. A.
Geer came down to identify the boys,
and if the right ones, to take them back
home. They were the boys wanted.
They were only about fourteen years old.
One was the son of Mr. Pool and the
other the son of Mr. J. .J. Cox. Both
parties are well to do farmers living
The boys seemed willing to return
home. They did not care to talk much
and gave no excuse for leaving home
except they wanted to take a trip and
see something of the world. They had
bought tickets to Columbia. They had
also purchased a ticket for a negro who,
it seems, was to accompany them but
when the time came did not put in an
appearance. Each of the boys had a
22 calibre seven shooter pistol; no bag
gage. Pool had $27 left after buying
tickets and dinner. Cox did not have
any money at all.
Mr. Geer returned to Belton with
them on tbe freight Saturday night.
Now is the time to plant beans, and
the place to buy them is at Pelham 's
Drug Store. If you want a sure crop,
and a large yield, good seed must be
sown. But good seed cannot be had
at any place. You will find a fresh

Last evening it was ascertained in an
accidental way that Col. Talcott had
resigned. The authority for the state
ment is the best, as it comes directly
from a gentleman to whom Col. Tal
cott himself gave the information. It
is all the more surprising, as Col. Tal
cott had but a few days ago declined to
say whether the rumor that he'in
tended to resign was true or not. His
resignatson will go into effect on April

superintendent of the Columbia and

These garments are strictly first-class
