Ed. Young Sent Up for Stealing Money
Out of the County Treasurer's
OfMce-A Shrewd Thief.
Ed. Young, a colored man well
known in Newberry, was put in jai,on
Thursday last on the charge of stealint,
money from the Coun.ty Treasurer's
Treasurer Boyd bad suspected him of
the stealing for some time, as he has
missed various sums of money and
Young has been the janitor of the office
for about Bfxteen years, having served
the various county treasurers in that
On Wednesday afternoon Treasurer
Boyd marked two $2 bills, and put one
in the drawer in the desk and one in
one of the drawers in the safe.
- When Mr. Boyd came down to the
office on Thursday morning, both
dralers had been opened and the
money was gane. He at once had
Young searched and the marked
money was found on his person.
Young's house was also searched, but
the only things found there were lots
of good clothes and plenty of tobacco.
Young bad a nail by which he open
ed the cash drawer of the desk. He
was such an adept at the business that
he could amost unlock it while one's
back was turned. He had learned the
day combination of the safe, in which
were two seis of drawers-one each
used by the Treasurer and the Auditor
-arranged beneath a tier of pigeon
holes. Young opened the Treasurer's
drawers by using a screw driver as a
lever between the lock and the pigeon
holes, and it was no trouble to open
them in tbis way.
Treasurer Boyd missed $17 from one
of these drawers at one time and $30 at
The veneering on the edge of these
drawers is pinched off, and splintered
by the instrument Young.used to open
them with, while the sets of drawers
on the opposite sideof the safe in which
the Auditor keeps his papers bear no
evidence 6f mutilation at all. Young
knew no money was kept there, and
he didn't care anything about bank
and railroad assessment papers.
Treasurer Boyd has missed about
$100, besides stamps, and there is no
telling how much money Young has
taken out of the office since he has
been the janitor.

a true bill in his case, and it is probable

me a small bit of space in your valua
ble paper for a few words, about At
lanta. I have now been here for six
weeks, and am highly pleased with the,
Gate City. It is ai! that can be said of
it. In fact, it is the 'business city of

Both stores and dwellings are the finest.
One building, the Equitable, eight
stories high, has eight hundred and
forty rooms, and it is not a hotel either.
When one goes up in the elevator he
feels like he has left part behind.
I find quite a number of Ne wberrians
here, and room for more.
Mr. 0. Crouch, the party I am with,
is quite a fine workman. He is finish
ing the busts of two parties in the city,
and they are life-like.
A tlanta can boast of a "Zoo," where
one can go and spend an hour or two
looking at the animals.
Long life to The Herald and News.
I am glad to get it, and look forward
every week for it. B. B. HUNTER.

The Sons of R.
The Ntwberry branch of this flour
ishing organization, auxiliary to the
national sand packers' association, not
withstanding the inclemency of the
weather and the failure of so many
banks, had a rousing meeting at their
regular swarm at 5.00 on the 32nd in
stant, many members being conspicu
ous by their presence; although, owing
to the establishment of the dispensary,
the house was not as full as it has been.
The raising of the cold wave signal in
terfered also. The setting up of the
dispens'ry has additionally had a mod
erating effect on the speeches of the
ring-leaders-they don't use so many
adjectives now, and stick closer to
their sabjects. Under the new dispen
sation, business is conducted with
more neatness and dispatch, and the
membershFp is not-as eager to adjourn
or go out between times as under the
old bar era. They are very odd fellows
and many of them now support a~five
cent watermelon. The next convening
ofthe swarm will be subject to call
d4uring this Ann. Dom.-unless re
stricted by injunction of somejudge.
The first thing done at !the last
swarm was to thank The Herald and
News for laying the order liable to ob
ligation for a column of its limited and
unadulterated space, knowing that the
editor and proprietors will never be
paid, let alone repaid, for their indul
gence, as the sons of rest do not pay as
they pass by collectively; that being
foreign to their domestic ideas of how
an organization should be run. They
say it is well enough for ancient orders
to pay as they go, but are themselves
modern in this particular; and, having
a robust constitution, can ward off all
attacks on their depleted treasury.
The Herald and News preamble
having passed, the.committee on sub
terranean passages reported future
progress and was.granted further time;
the committee on inspection of coun
ters was discharged on account of near
sightedness, and the committee on
anxieties and perplexities instructed
to take its place; committee on mil
dewed clothes and sad cake, and com
mittee on blind tigers of Blue Ruin,
were given an indefinite lease. On
the introduction of unfinished busi
ness, the following committtees were
reprimanded and continued: The com
mittee on public superintendency of
new buildings in process of erection,
committee on the state of the moon,
committee on remorse and regrets,
and the etcetera committees. Business
was suspended here for a few minutes
to -see if anything could be heard to
drop on the outside in regard to the
Newberry dispensary, as rumors had
been detected flying in the air.
The next order of business was un
der the head of charges preferred.
There were charges against many of
the brethren; one brother being
charged with having kissed a girl
with the mumps when he had never
had it himself; another with offering to
pay for a chicken when it was known
that the preceding night was propi
tious for free transportation of live
produce; another with having a moth
er who. washed her own dishes. The
case which arou'ed the indignation
of the members was that of the brother
charged with kissing the girl with the
mumpy jaws. This measley mouthed
son of rest was hotly scorched and a
resolution was unanimously passed
that any member hereafter found
guilty of the same offense should for
feit his membership. It was the sense
of the meeting that a man should have
respect for the mumps, and not fry to
divide time with it when it is clinging
so lovingly to the object of its devo
tion. Mumps is no respector of per
sons, else it would not lay its wrinkled
hand upon the rosy cheeks of a pretty
blue, black, brown, grey, pink or
green eyed girl during the outing sea
son when she is ever so fond of talking
out of her mouth. Don't monkey
with the mumps under such circum
The other charges were satisfactorily
explained to the meeting, with the ex
ception of the charge against the
brother whose mother did the wash
ing of dishes. Inasmuch as this was a
charge reflecting against the aristocra
cy of the club, it was resolved that the
brother be allowed 30 seconds to vindi
cate himself. The accused arose and

A Newberry K. of H.
The day and the occasion met, a
lovely day and a noble occasion. Last
Friday was the day and the occasion
was the picnic given by the Johnston
Lodge K. of 0. in the pine grove near
the the Mobley branch, one mile west
of town. It was a picnic with hash
accompaniment, and lemonade and
pretty girls did abundantly abound.
The Knights are a knightly set of fel
lows and the many invitations ex
tended to their friends were promptly
responded to and the same highly ap
preciated. Even country editors were
prioileged to enjoy a square meal !-a
meal that gave out no Indications of the
hard times of which we hear so much
talk. The dinner was simply excellent
And the tinie,before the dinner hour
arrived was very pleasantly spent in
listening to an address from a brother
Knight, M. A. Carlisle,-Esq., of New
berry, an officer in the Grand Lodge,
who had been invited to be-present and
talk to the brethren on matters pertain
ing especially to the branch of life in
surance, and well and truly did he dis
charge the trust. His address was re-,
plete with information concerning the
order, and encouraging to the meibers,
and will doubtless result in a number
of accessions to the Lodge at this place.
Mr. Carlisle is a lawyer and a farmer,
and a most pleasant and affable gentle
man. We are thankful for the oppor
tu.nity of making his acquaintance.
Hope he will come again and remain
with us longer.-Johnston Monitor.
