Newberry at the Columbla CentenniaL
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: Interest in the Columbia cen
tennial grows apace. Newberry has
fallen into line, and her arch need not
hold its head abashed, notwithstand
ing the tardiness of our sympathy in
this commendable celebration. Our
activities have been aroused. A com
mittee (composed of Mr. Blalock and
the writer) from the Board of Trade has.
visited Columbia, has selected a loca
tion, has contracted with certain build
ers and professional decorators, who
are under agreement with the com
mittee to do the work thoroughly and
in an artistic manner. It remains now
with the citizenship of town and coun
ty to say whether it were best to adver
tise Newberry's resourmes extensively
by pamphlets, placards and the like.
ro my mind the occasion will be one
that should be employed for all it is
worth, for the purpose of making
known to the world where Newberry .
is, what the products of our soil and
mills, what our natural environments
are, what are our educational facilities,
etc. I fancy if advertising material
were left unused it could afterwards be I
distributed through proper .bannels I
where it-might do the most good. It
is well to remember that the illustrated
pap,rs and the large daily press will
have representatives on the ground,
that distinguished men of the North
and of the South are expected to be
present to enjoy the festivities of the
occasion. It will be an event of a cen
tury. Outside of the tinge of sadness
that steals over us as we meditate upon
the fact that we will not be permitted
to participate in the celebration of the
second centennial, the occasion should
be a joyous one for every son of Caro
lina, who feels the impulse of deep de
votion to his mother State.
There will be much in this celebra
tion to inspire us with new hope and
renewed zeal, as with backs turned to
the shadowy past, we gaze through the
vista of time upon the spi,ndors and
achievements of a new century.
And with the recollection of the pa
triotism that has distinguished South
Carolina, whether in the pulpit,, on the
battle field, in the press, in commerce,
in the law, in medicine, or in the peace
ful pursuitsof husbandry, may we not
encourage new hopes that for our be
loved Carolina, her future may be
ighter than her glorious past. Every
b hould attend except those abso
lutely n and thus honor our
selves as we sho o the world that we L
are yet worthy of tha on in iw
autonomy- of States which wetave 1
hitherto enjoyed. I cannot reproduce e
the programme here, but big things are I
promised, not the least of which is to 0
see and hear that grand old man, Wade t
Hampton, who has ever been worthy F
of our profoundest admiration. Ouri
children, too, should be given this op
portunity, possibly their last, of shak
ing hands with, and of knowing the
man who, had Lee been removed by c
death, would have been placed in con
mand of all the forces of the Confed- t
eracy; whose military prowess and S
civic renown future historians will say
equalled that of the bravest and the
best of any age.
Newberry cannot claim to be the v
first of the counties in date of establish- d
ment, but she may, by a proper repre- 0
sentation at this centennial, entertain a
a lively hope that she will be consid- b

CURIOUs CAPERS OF CATERPILLARS.I
rrains on the Carolina Central Railroad
Blockaded by Moving Masses of the
CHARWT'rE, N. C., May 2.-The
Carolina Central trainmen have been
having apeculiar experience with cater- i
pillars for four or five days past. Just
east of Lumberton is what is known as o
"Big Swamp," and the railroad goes y
through it on trestle work, broken here ~
and there in the more solid portions of I
the swamp by solid embankments of v
earth. Last Tuesday an army of cater- ~
pillars began moving out of the swamp, a
and when they reached the streams
over which the trestle carries and rails
they massed on the railroad and pro
ceeded to cross on the trestles. The t
rails and ties were covered inches deep a
with the moving mass, and the first P
train that encountered them was
brought to a dead standstill, the driv- s
ing whbeels of the engine slipping round
as if the rails had been thoroughly
oiled. The engineer exhausted the
contents of his sand box before he got
through the swamp and reached a clear
stretch of track.
It was thought that that trip would
be the end of the caterpillar trouble,
but the very next day a train encoun
tered another army of caterpillars
crossing the trestle and had the same
The Charlotte bound passenger says
the scene was something truly wonder
ful. The rail and crossties of the tres
tle were actually obscured from sight
by the masses of caterpillars, and the
ground and swamps on each side of the
track were littered with the mashed
fragments of millions of the caterpillars
from the wheels of proceeding trains,
and from this mass an unendurable
Where they came from is not known.]
The farmers on this side of the swamp
express no uneasiness for the safety of
their crops so long as the advancing
army persists in using the trestle as its
means of getting across the steams, for
none of them have got more than half
way cross before a train would come
along and couvert them into fertilizer.

Miss Sudlow's Essay.
The "Wizard of the North" has cast
is spell over the young people of tvo
generatiobs and many lauds. The in
:antation which bound me is not of
Scotland, yet still of the North, and
:hough "Ivanhoe" had the great ad
7antage of being first to fall into my
jauds, I still think it the book of all
ythers that I would choose could I
iave but one. We have two copies.

when I was 12 years old, and tL'e cou
lition it is now in (it was only paper

which I cousult it. Ithasgrowii to be

which to measure other characters

why I like it, I never inquired of my
