It was thought during the early part

Newberry Rifles' Hot Supper.
The hot supper given on last Tuesday
night for the benefit of the Newberry
Rifles was in every respect a great suc
cess. The people of the town never
fail to respond when called on by the
boys. Although gotten up in a very
short time, the supper was all that
could be wished for, and everything
passed off as pleasantly as possible.
The splendid band of music added
greatly to the occasion. One very
interesting feature of the evening was
voting for the prettiest young lady in
the hall, the winner to be presented
with a beautiful cake. The successful
young lady was Miss Emma Hale, of
Clinton, S. C. The cake was presented
by Capt. S. J. McCaughrin, who, of
course, always knows just what to say
under such circumstances.
The net proceeds of the supper were
$85. This will go towards getting uni
forms for the Rifles, which they are
very much in need of.
After the sup r had Leeen served the
hall was cleared, and the young people
enjoyed themsolves for several hours,
engaging in a most delightful dance.
The Rifles are making a strong effort
to get a Confederate grey uniform, and
they deserve the support of the town.

ill-health of females. It may be a source
of hilarity to witty paragraphers, but
not so to suffering women, who by
overwork, antd a disregard of the laws
of health, have lapsed into a condition
bordering on invalidism. What most
women need is to be relieved of some of
the slavish work that is piled on them,
and a free, but judicious use of streng
thening tonics, such as P. P. P. (Prick
ly Ash, Poke Root and Potassium), the
greatest blood purifier and invigorator
in use. Superb as a builder up of wo
men, bringing back lost energy to the
body, and color to faded cheeks, restor
ing the appetite, and thus renewing in
her tha' healthy vitality long lost. P.
P. P. cures all blood diseases, such as
Rheumatism, Syphillis, Gout, Scrofula,
and all ulcerous affections, even van
quishing that melancholy enemy of
man, Dyspepsia. All druggists sell it.
The medical fratertiity, backed 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

the I. WV. Harper Whiskey, because it
is pure, possessed of a superior flavor
and bouquet, and is not offered for sale

There will be an important innova
tion in this State next Sunday, result
ing in great benefit and .onvenience to
the travelling public of this State and
Never has a passenger train been run
over the Columbia and Greenville road
on Sunday and the only attempt-to
run a special excursion on the upper
portion of the line made about six
years ago-was promptly put down by
the Railroad Commission. But next
Sunday the regular trains, including
all but the passenger train between
Laurens and New berry, will begin to
run on this road on Sunday the same
as any other day.
This is done in order to keep up the
connections of the new quick schedule
for Atlanta -which has just been ar
ranged to put a person leaving here in
the morning in Atlanta on the evening
of the same day, as already published
in the State.
There has been an idea for many
years that the charter of the Columbia
and Greenville road would not allow
the running of trains on the road on
Sunday, but The State has the above
on the authority of one of the officials
of the road, and he says that the char
ter has no such provision, and the only
probable result that wil. come from the
inauguration of the Sunday trains will
be the loss of some land granted origin
ally to the road.
The new arrangement will be a boon
to the traveling public and Columbia's
railway advantages will be proportion

Fit st Year's Work of the Prosperity Fac
PROSPERITY, May 5.-The annual
meeting of the stockholders of Pros
perity canning factory was held on the
3d inst. The following items of inter
est were gleaned from the reports of the
treasurer and board of directors: The I
company canned last season (its first 1
report' 1,200 bushels of tomatoes, 473
bushels of okra, 129 bushels of apples
and 249 bushels of peaches, which cost
in the aggregate $682.85. The amount
paid cut for labor is $415.46; amount
paid for wood, $30. The number of
bushels of all fruits and vegetables used t
was 2.051, which filled the following 4
kinds of cans and number: 18,487 three
pound cans okra and tomatoes; 1,476
two pound cans okra and tomatoes;
3,912 three pound cans peaches; 2,379 <
two pound caus peaches; 4,968 three l
pound cans apples; 4,656 two pound
cans okra; 4,348 three pound cans to
matoes. Total cans put up, 43,226. The ]
report of the board of directors was so
satisfactory and encouraging that im
mediate steps were taken to double the
capacity of the factor, and to confine
the operations strictly to the use of to
matoes and peaches. It has been dem
onstrated that simple tomatoes and
peaches are far the best sellers, and that j
2-pound cans tomatoes sell better than1
3-pound cans. The tomatoes grown
and canned here are superior to any
that have ever been put on this mar -
ket. The stockholders have adopted a
beautiful label, rich in color, bearing
the trade mark, "Palmetto Brand,"
and representing the Palmetto monu
ment in the capitol grounds. Prepara-1
tions are being made to plant fifty acres
in tomatoes by the company. Persons
riot connected with the company will
also plant quite a quantity. Messrs.
D. H. Wheeler, A. H. Kohn, L. S.
