At the Opera House.
The Chicora Dramatic Association

Fitzgerald Murphy's sparkling Irish
Drama "Shamrock and Rose" at the

21st. It is not often Newberry theatre
goers have the opportunity to witness
such a treat. The time of the play is
laid in 1798, during the Irish rebellion.
1 All lovers of fun will appreciate the
characters of Ileen O'Rouke, Barney
2 O'Brady and Shaun Carey in their
happy Irish wit. The vill.ny of Capt.
Beck in his persecution of Rose Fitz
gerald and John Desmond cannot fail
to arouse the sentiment of the aud
s ience. The duel scene and the murder
of the Squire are both thrilling.
The Anderson press speaks. very

well recommended, and we hops the

AN OPEN LETTER.
MILLERSBURG, Ky., March 3, 1893.
Mr. J. S. C. Carpenter, Oen. ,Agt. 1.
M. F. L A., Chester, . C.-Dear Sir:
Yours to hand, saying that you have
met with adverse criticism in organ
izing and operating a co-operative plan
of fire insurance in your State. We
have many Associations in this Stafe
that have been in operation for from
10 to 18 years, and there is not one of
them that has not furnished insurance
to the people for less than half of what
the old line companies charge for fire
only, and we have invariably paid the
loser of property without 1he least ten
dency to quibble. Yet with all these
facts and not a single failure on record,
those whose bread and butter depend
upon downing this insurance principle
are everlastingly crying that they will
break! The last association organized
in this State was in August, '91, one of
the worst fire years in the history of
the country. Yet we paid every loss
promptly and saved $3.00 on the $1,00)
insurance and had protection against
wind and lightning as well as fire.
During that period no less than 82 fire
insurance companies went to the wall.
38 of those that broke were on the mu
tual plan and 44 on the capital plan.
Not a co-operative company was to
be found in the list of wrecks. Ex
perience has taught all fire com
panies that ~fires do not come singly
but in groups, but when averaged up
our plan must necessarily fall below
the cost of a company run for profit?
else how could they run. No associa
tion, however, of this kind has ever
cost as much in any one year, no odds
how unfortunate, as a capital company,
Yours truly, and in sympathy with
any man who tries to .lead the people
out of financial ~gpt.
F. M. HURsT, Gen. Agt.
Farmer's Home Ins. Co., of Ky.
lo thte Farmers of NWew1bemj Cbunty;
The foregoing letter speaks for itself
and shows that our plan of insurance
has been tried elsewhere and not found
wanting. Before you insure your prop
erty, thoroughly examine this plan and
you will go no further. It costs less
than half' the cost of a capital company
and is a hundred per cent. more relia

( OLUMBIA, April 17.--To-day I asked
Governor Tillman about the celebrated

"All that I want to say I will give in a

the chances are that tbe answer to the

He is to Receive $10,000,000 for his Go'd
( ICAGO, ILLS., April 16.--TheTimes
this norniig says: Unless some an
fireseen obAcie comes in the way the
famous bichloride of gold cure for
drunkenness will pats out of the bands
of the Leslie Keeley Company to-Inor
row. The price to be paid is $10,000,000
and a New York syndicate of capital
ists is the purebaser, and all that is
necessary to consummate the sale is 0
Dr. Keeley's signature to the contract, I
in which be agrees not to enter into 8
the same business again.
The sale does not only include the I
formula and the Dwight plant, but all v
the institutions in the United States a
are included. Dr. Keeley is now in I
New York to bring matters to a close. 1
Ten years ago Dr. Keeley was an ob- t
scure physician in the village of Dwight. f
The doctor had been an army surgeon, I
and during the war the idea was born t
to him that drunkenness is a disease. C
At the close of the war he returned to 8
Dwight and soon became the surgeon a
at that place of the Alton Railroad. i
While not engaged professionally be f
experimented in a rudely constructed i
laboratory on the formula that has i
since made him famous. Success did r
not attend him at the start. The origi- '
nal method of treatment was internal- I
ly, and on some persons it exercised a i
good effect, but it fell short of remov- f
ing the appetite from constant drink- I
ers. The sudden regeneration of the d
first patient under the shot system was
heralded broadcast, and soon after pa
tients began flocking to Dwight.
Chicago sent down a battalion, and
they came back cured. At one time
Dwight held 1,800 patients and the at
tendance never went below 800 until
outside institutions began to make a
bid for patronage. It is safe to say that
Dr. Keeley has already received $15,
000,000 from patients. The amount of
money received for medicine for home
treatment a year ago was large enough
to defray the running expenses of the
parent institution. Subsequently in
stitutions were established throughout
the United States and in Europe.
The United States Government be
came interested in the treatment, and it
is in use at the various Soldiers' Homes
throughout the country. Dr. Keeley

AN OUTRAGE NEAR DENMARK.
A Farmer's Daughter and Her Little Bro
ther Attacked by a Mulatte Tramp
While on their Way to School.
- Special to the News and Courier.1
DENMARK, April 14.-Our usually
quiet little town was thrown into in
tense excitement this morning about
9 o'clock when Mr. J. D. Baxter, a
prominent farmer, who lives about two
and a half miles from town, came in
and brought the intelligence that his
little daughter, about 14 years old, had
been outraged by a negro.
The young lady was on her way to
school here, accompanied by her little
brother, about eight years old. In
coming to school they came down the
South Carolina Railway track. This
morning, between 8 and 9 o'clock, as
they reached nearly half way here,
they were met by a negro who as
saulted them, grst choking tbe little
boy alrost to death and then attack
ing the young lady, who fought like a
tig. He tore nearly all of her clothes
og, after dragging her down a steep
As soon as they could get free from
the brute they ran home and informed
their father of what bad occurred, and
he came down and gave the alarm.
Very quicily about one hundred men
were scouring the woods and country
around, and some are still in pursuit.
The assailant went in the direction of
Savannah and was seen by a small
negro girl, whom he told if she saw
any "buckra" looking for him to tell
thenm she bad not seen himi. Blood
hounds have been telegraphed for and
every eff'ort will be made to crapture
him, and if he is caught ,judge Lynch
will convene Court at once.
The ruffan did not succeed in ac

age, had on a brown coat, striped pants
and a small black hat,. He had no

Rev. Mr. McClintock preached in
he village church last sunday after
zoon to a good and attentive congrega
ion. After a sweet hymn of praise,
-eading of the Word and an earnest
>rayer the minister addressed the pe(
)le on the love of God toward the chil
Iren of men; of the marvellous nature
if that love, which, while we were
.fis enemies and capt ives in the chairs
mid slavery of sin, He made known to
is by the offering dp of his Beloved
;on as the propitiation for our offenses
ind the ransom of our deliverence from
leath. He urged his hearers to so
ive that they might be drawn by the
>urifying and uplifting power of that
operishable love, by which alone fear
nd bate are cast out and pure affection
ske entire possession of the heart;
be strength of whose wonderful grace
vill enable the possessor to return good
or evil and love and be kind not only
o those who reciprocate affections,
>ut likewise to all humanity.
The years are abnormal in their con
litions and no two alike in uniformity
f,beason and temperature-particular
y in the spring. The whole State is
uffering for the want of rain. Crops
re very badl. needing rain. Hence hu-;
nanity languishes more or less for
egetable food, so essential to health
fter the winter months. Man is help-!
ess without the baptismal dews of
eaven and the copious showers upon
he fruits of the field. It is so largely
ood or drouth, now, and man is so de
endent. Are abnormal conditions in
he physical world the logical sequence
f abnormual c3nditions in the moral and
piritual realms? Are there such things,
s the ethics and Christianity of farm
ag? If scepticism fails of an answer
rom Holy Writ, unbelief will fail of a
lessing from heaven. We are adnion
3hed to ask for those things "which are
equisite and necessary," and that the
'windows of heaven" can be opened
pon us for a blessing. Truth is eternal
nd changeless and its Author is faith
L1l, but it is so popular and fashionable
tow to question the truth if not to
leny it. SANS SoUcr.
