A GOOD MOVE.
New York is not the ord,y city which
has its "Piinting-House Square," or
round either. Newberry is in it, so to
speak. Th.: Herald and News moved
from the little house on the cor
ner where it had been for so many
years, and has relocated in the brick
building partly occupied by the Ob
server and also by Mr. D. B. Wheeler,
sewing machine agent. The Herald
and News office is in the rear end next
door to the Observer oiice and the edi
torial sanctum is in the front portion,
which was formerly occupied by MIr.
Wheeler, he having "moved up" one
door into the room (front half petitioned
off) heretofore used as a storage room.
It is a kind of triangular arrangernent,
but comfortable and compact, and we
cordially invite all our friends, country
and town, to inspect The Herald and
News' portion of "Printing-House
Square." We are thus explicit in de
scription because we want everybody
to "catch on" immediately as to where
our place of bus.iness is, and further to
know that Mr. Wheeler has movcd
he doesn't stay here now.
The above explanation will account
for scarcity of original matter and other
deficiencies this week. The late cold
wave struck us just in the middle of
our move and (etc., you all know the
attendant incidents and accidents pe
culiar to a "move)".
The Teachers' Association.
The NewbErry County Teachers' As
sociation met at Johlistone Academy
on Saturday, the 9th intant. The as
sociation wan :resided over by Prof.
Evans, principal of the Graded School.
Mrs. Maggie Tarrant secretary.
After the reading of minutes of pre
ceding meeting and calling the roll,
Miss Janie Chalwers read an essay on
the importance of properly teaching
reading in the schools. She treated
the subject in good style and presented
matters in a very elegant and thought
F. W. Higgins also read an article on
the same subject, which was well
treated and full of thought.
Mrs. Jane A. Long, in a few well
timed remuarkz., gave her views as to
the proper mode of teaching reading.
The necessity of Bible reading in
schools was the next sutject before the
association. The first ezsay on this
subject was read by T. W. Keitt. He
thought that the Bible should have a
place in every school and should be
read much by the classes.
The next article on this subject was
read by .\rs. Mattie W. Reid. She
handled the subject fully and in the
most effective manner. The impor
tance of the Bible as the foundation of
a thorough system of morality was
elaborately and ably expressed. Her
-essay was highly spoken of by many
who heard it.
Col. J. R. Leavell, by invitation,
made a few remarks on the value and
importance of reading the Bible, not
only in the schools but in families.
Arthur Kibler thought the Bible
should be read in schools, but should
not be used as a text book; no attempt
should be made to teach the doctrines
of the Bible in the schools.
T. W. Keitt thought the general
principles of morality should be taught
from the Bible, but no special dogmas.
Mrs. Maggie Tarrant spoke of tne
importance of tlae Bible as a rule of
Mrs. Jane A. Long also spoke of the
great importance of the Bible as an in
structor and the good effects observed
on the life and conduct of the young
through its influence.
Fractions was the next subject on
the programme, and Prof. Sligh was
appointed to open, but he said he was
so very hungry, and weak therefrom,
he did not feel that he could talk at all.
Through sympathy the good people of
the neigb borhood spread a most savory
and bountifui dinner and invited every
body to partake. The invitation was
not long in being accepted; and if Prof.
Sligh became too hungry to discuss
fractions in all their phases in less time
than a week thereafter, we sympathize
sincerely with those who furnish him
After dinner was over the audience
again repaired to the academy, and
Prof. Sligh being called on discussed
thoroughly the subject of fractions and
the best mode of teaching them. He
presented the subject completely, but
in a plain manner. In his "intro
ductory" remarks he said he felt much
better than before dinner; but we could
not help thinking that his voice sounded
very much like his waistband was too
0Prof. Evans also enlarged upon the
manner of teaching fractions in a com
prehensive talk, and made his illustra
tions so plain that every teacher could,
easily understand his points. Prof.
Evans showed himself familiar with
his subject, and no doubt he is quite as
easy and plain in his examples in the
MIr. Jennings followedi with his views
on fractions and gave his mode of!
teaching this branch of knowledge.
T. W. Keitt moved thbat the thanks
of the association be tendered the pa
tromus of Johnstone Academy for their
hospitality. And the dinner was so
nice, so abundant, and given with such
a hearty good will, that the vote of
thanks was well deserved.
FACTIO)N FIGHLTS IN LOUISIANA.
Two Democratic and Two lRepubflcau Can

maijority of the com,mitte'e of seven,
three Fosterites and Col. Young, who
had been suggested by t he Foster coml

committee to canvass the election had
thrown out enough votes to elect Foster,
it was generally believed that the 3Ic- I

contest, but a fter earnest and prolonged C
conference with the MIcEnerv commit-'

vailed upon to continue the contest.
There are nowv twvo Demcratic and two

A DISREP'UTAELE DEAL MADE EY
NEW ORLEANs. April 9.-Rumors a
have been current for several days, and o
generally believed, that the McEnery c
people, the lottery and the Leon'rd r

gation for Harrison at the M1inneapolis It
convention and the lottery to provide id
$50,000 for the State campaign for a In
hzudsome donation to carry this StatelC

is confirmed by the admission of a n
prominent lottery stockholder that such ;p
a combination had been made, the mo

TALK AImOUT T LIt:RT.
iit is Said to have Written Pol:, of Third
[Speci. :o News and Courier.]
WAssIoNG o, April S.-There is a
rumor floating around in the South
Carolina colony which, if sustained,
may cause Col. WV. J. Talbert consider
able trouble in reaching the goal of his
political ambition-a seat in Congress
Iron the 2d district. Several days ago I
learned frori a well-known South Caro
linian that Col Talbert some time since
wrote a letter to Col. L. L. Polk, presi
(lent of the N ational Farmers' Alliance,
in which he declared in favor of the
Third Party. It is also stated that Col.
Talbert made a rank Third Party
speech at Oc.la.
Now, without claiming to have read
the letter of Col. Talbert myself, I saw
a gentleman who is familiar with its
contents and may produce the text of
it later on. The subject has caused
considerable gossip and speculation
among the South Carolinians here, and
it i; freely predicted that the 2d district
will not be represented in the next Con
gress by a Third Party man. The ma
jority of the voters in that district are
supposed to be Democrats, aud they do
not propose at this stage of the game to
throw away their influence in national
polities by fol:owing theJerrySinpson
Ton Watson -quad. Besides, there is
nothing to indicate that "Uncle George"
Tillman has grown weary of Congres
sional life, and there is certainly no
signs of failing popularity, so far as he
is individually concerned, in his dis
trict. "Uncle George" has his own ideas
on certain subjects, but there is never
any doubt as to where be stands when
Democratic is,ues are involved. He has
the courage of his convictions, and is
perfectly independent in giving ex
pression to them whenever the occasion
arises. He will give Col. Talbert a
lively contest for the nomination, and
those who urc'ess to know the seuti
ment in the 2d district predict that
"Uncle George" will knock the Colonel
out in the first round.
TALRIERT CLA3?IS To BE A DEMOCRAT,
BUT HE ISIN FAVOItOF THEOCALA
LNew; and Courier.]
CoLUMIA, April 1.-There are not
a few politicians here who are of the
opinion that in the event of the nomi
nation of Cleveland or any other Demo
crat opposed to the Alliance plattforn,
at the Nationa' Convention, there will
be a Third Party in South Carolina.
For some reasou it is supposed that W.
Jasper Talbert :s going to be one of the
leaders of such a movement. A tele
gram was received here stating that
Col. Talbert had written a letter to
President Polk, in Washington, endors
ing the Third Party movement.
I called on Col. Talbert this morning
at his residence to ascertain what, if
any, truth therewasin the rumor of his
Third Party declarations. He was
quite pleasant and affableand said that
he did not exactly understand the
significance of the rumor, but called
attention to the interview with him
published about a year ago, in which
he took a position in the middle of the
political road and which he dcclares he
has never changed. "I have written
no letter to Col. Polk, or anyone else,"
he said, "advocating the Third Party.
Everything I have either said or writ
ten has been on the line of my original
stand, and identical with the policy I
had when I wrote my last letter to The
News and Courier.
"Within the last two weeks I have1
made fully six speeches in which I
reiterated that South Carolina wanted
no Third Party, because we 'do not
need it. That third parties do not live
long in South Carolina, and that I
judge from the short life of the move
ment of the same kind about two years
ago. My position is that we are mak
ing our fight as Alliance men in the
Democratic ranks, through the Demo
cratic primaries and at the Democratic
elections as Democrats, supporting
such men as stand on the Ocala plat
form. This is what I said to you in
Orangeburg, and I also then stated to
you that there were not enough news
papers in the State to mike me change
my position. Col. Peck or anybody I
else is at perfect liberty to publish any
letter I've ever written so far as I'm
"Remember, I have always con
tended that there is a sharp distinction
between the national and State politics
in South Carolina. While I consider
our State Government is in good shape
ad is not suffering from mismanage
ment, I attribute the present depresedt
condition of our people to the faulty
national financial legislation. The A lli
ace people have formulated demand ~
after demand which have been respect- E
fully sent to the legislators in Wash

surely needed and must be had, and if
there is no chance on the face of the
earth to get this relief from existing ~
parties when that point is reached and
the people find that relief cannot be
had, then it will be time enough to
look about for the people's party or anyr
other party that will give it. If this
relief cannot be had in any other way
tban by wiping out of existence both
f the other old parties, why then the
inevitable must come. The relief must

To the Editor of The ii:r.... and
Scws: On last Tuesday Presidteit Hol
and took the Seniors and Theological
tudents of Newberry College on a
eological excursion to Little Moun
ain. The day was an ideal spring day,
ust suitable for such an outing. The
ride of sixteen miles in the fresh morn
rg air was so invigorating that we had
cearcely arrived at the foot. of the
7ountain before all coats were left be
ind and the ascent began. Some
.arried the telescope, others hanrers,
tatchels, etc., for the purpose of inves
igatiug and securing mineralogical
;ec'mens, while the rest of us carried
;trong sticks to assist in clhibing.
About this time our frisnd, Gus Shealy,
he politician of Little Mountain,
oined us. And indeed he was quite
in addition to our party, because of
lis knowledge of the place, and also
ecauseof the laughter his witty re
narks often called forth.
Dr. Holland explained the formation
if the mountain, the era in which it
was formed, cause, etc., also the kinds
>f rocks, their composition, such as
uartz, feldspar, tale, mica, etc., etc.
We might go on thus applying such
:erms to niany things found that the
)rdinary observer would never notice,
>ut they would not interest the reader,
and so we desist. You say: But didi
,ou find no gold or lead mhines? No,
hough we sought diligently. Both of
hese metals may be there (:) in aburn
lsice, but it will take an expert to find
hem. After a ramble of two and a
Lbalf hours we returned to our vehicles
tnd partook of a most excellent dinner.
\ow, ladies,do not smile at the thought
)f a party composed entirely of men
laving a fine picnic dinner, for there
vere those in the company who under
tood the art of spreading such a din
ier about as well as most ladies. And
e would not have the young ladies
latter themselves in thinking we could
iot enjoy the dinner because they were
iot present. However much their
miling faces wculd have been appreci
ted, we must say that never was a
linner enjoyed more than that one.
fter an hour's rest we again began to
amble, having been joined by Dr. J.
. Seas and Mar. A. H. Boland, and for
wo hours we made our way, leaping
om rock to rock, running dowvn the
nountain sides, and engaging in vari
us ports, as college boys are wont.
~he following are some things we
aw that very likely many never
~new were there:
On the eastern peak are some Indian
raves, or rather rock piles, which tra
lition says are Indian graves. On the
estern peak, the west side, there is a
arge roik which projects from the
nountain side sufficiently to shelter
everal men. Oh the north aide of the
ame peak there is the yellow violet
ave (the name given by our party be
ause so many of these flowers grew
tear by). It is said that this cave once
>roved a safe hiding place fo'r a fugi
Beautiful ferns, mountain daisies,
-ellow and blue violets and other
lowers were found in abundance.
tround the foot of the mountain beve
a springs can be found where the
eary may refresh themselves with
he cool, sparkling water.
It was found by careful calculation1
hat the flow of one of these springs
ras 1.5300 gallons per day. Tbe de
ightful breeze, beautiful flowers and
ool, refreshing water, and also the

stimable benefit to all as a day of rest

in the Lenten services in his, Ebenezer
Lutheran church. We fear some of
these ci y churches will be bidding for
our preacher ere long.
I submit the following solution of
the "Question of majority'' in last
week's issue of the New berry Observer.
First, we must bear in mind that mt
jority means any number above one
half of the aggregate, and not the diil'er
ence in numbers between two or more
contestants. Hence, in the case of
mayor, 366 votes weie east; 1s4 is one
half the aggregate. Mr. Blaloek re
ceived 189 votes, or 5 votes huore than
half, so that his majority is 5 votes.
True he received 10 votes iore tto
both his competitors, but only.a mliajor
ity of 5.
In Ward 2 I find 362 votes ca;, _'1
for the Ir. Wheeler and 1'1 for Mr.
Suber. Here Mr. Wheeler gts loIV
votes more than Mr. Suber, but he nly
has a nwjority of 50, becauje he l.s
just )50 votes more than oue-tia!f of the
In applying the same rule in Ward 4,
we find that Mr. Klettuer received 4
votes more than Mr. Goggans, but only
2 majority. This is made simple by
subtracting 2 votes from Mr. Klettner
und adding them to Mr. Goggans, when
we produce "a tie"-all other cases in
like manner. The Observer man is
wrong by one vote in each of his ma
jorities. He could only arrive at such
results by beginning to count his Ita
jority from the number "necessary to
L choice" instead of at the half.
The word,"plurality," or term, "plu
rality of votes," can never be applied
where therearetwocontestants, neither
:an it be applied in the result of a con
:est between tbree or more men when
>ne coutestant receives more votes than
ill of his opponents, because in such
ase he receives more than half, which
s a majority. Plurality means more
bau another, but less than half.
In Ward 1 we find a plain illustration
f a plurality vote, where Dr. Kitbler
aas a plurality of 80 votes, still he
wanted 6 more votes to have been
eected by a majority of 1. Men all
>ver our country have fallen into the
very common error of considering the
iflerence in the vote between two men
a the majority; which is absolutely in
"What fools these muortals be." From
~very section, not only of our o .vucouu
~ry and State, but fromi othe~rs similar
y situated, conies the grating cry "bard
imes," "hard times," "nothing but
ard times," when these verysanielips
bould be employed in giving utter
mece of praises and thanksgiving to
almighty God for the abundant har
est with which be has blessed our
tforts during the past year. Not a
lingie family in this broad land is stur
ering from want of anything- to eat or
,o wear, butt on the other hand have
]ot onliy plenty for home consuim ptioni,
>ut to spare. and notwithbstanding all
his we cry out from the highest hills
mad lowest val!eys, "hard times!" Now
his is wrong-it, is sinful-it is miur
uring directly againist the goodness of
jod, and lie is sure to reward us accord
rig to our deserts. We as a people
save no true conception of what hard
imxes really are. T1o get a faint idea of
'bard times," let us take a glimpse of
lussia just now. Look at those bound
ess fields for thousands and thousands
if miles, and what do you see? Noth
ng but desolation upon desolation.
Cot a single green plant or blade to be
een in nil these vast fields. What i
he matter? Examine the soil. Behold,
is dry-parched, dead.
Look again. The weather is cold,
