Rev. W. S. Bean, D. 11., editor of the
Southern Presbyterian, writes about a
recent visit to Newberry:
"Newberry County is one of the
counties in South Carolina in which
the Presbyterians are not numerous.
There are only four organized ehurches
and two pastors to supply these. We
have just ret-rned from a visit to
Smyrna church, five miles from New
berry, and bad the pleasure of assist ing
Rev. J. W. McClure, the pastor of
Smyrna, in a meeting There was
preaching once on Saturday, and twice
on Sunday when the Lord's Supper
was sadministered. A heavy storm of
rain and thunder, which came up after
the assembling of the large congrega
tion, rendered it difficult to hear any
thing that was said,, and kept all in
the church for the mid-day repast. On
Monday morning there was another
service, and Mr. McClure announced
preaching Monday night. There were
two additions on professions of faith
and it is hoped that others will follow.
Mr. McClure tendered his resignation
as pastor, he having received a call to
Richburg and Longtown churches in
Bethel Presbytery. The South Caro
lina Presbytery is to meet n..xL, week to
eonsider his resignation.
"The Aveleigh church, Newberry, of
which Rev. J. S. Cozby, D. D., is pas
tor, is a very attractive and conveueut
building, It has been newly re
modeled within and without,and with
its hard wood finish of native pine, its
stained glass windows, and cowforta
ble pews, it is one of the neatest and
most comfortable churches in this
State. Should Mr. McClure's resigna
tion be accepted and his pastoral rela
tion with his two churches dissolved,
Dr. Cozby will be left as the sole rep
resentative of the Presbyterian minis
try 'in Newberry' County.
"It is a sign of decided progress in
our towns to see what excellent public
school buildings have been recently
erected in many places, Abheville,
Sumter and Newberry have new and
handsome school-hauses, which are
most attractive and well appointed.
Other towns are undertaking the erec
tion of new buildings, and South Caro
lina will soon be supplied with the best
school-houses that can be devised."

An Eloquent Sermon.
Rev. Jno. C. Kilgo preached an
able and strong sermon in the Meth

It contained many sledge hammer
blows. We wish he could preach that
sermon to every congregation in this
country. The central idea was that
true greatness consisted in service. No
man was independent but that man
only was truly great who best served
his day and generation. The principal
aim of life shord not be to get all out
of the world that we can b,ut to put
more in it. By empting ourselves in
the service of others we are made full.
It would be a great thing for this
world if we could get rid of much of
the selfishness and nlarrowness and
bitterness and meanness that pervades
many of its citizens, &c.

The County Commissioners, in jus
tice to themselves, feel it their duty to
make the following statement:
In November, 1891, the levy for or
dinary county funds was reduced from
31 mills to 21 mills. That reduced
levy is to pay the county's obligations
in the fiscal year of 1892-93. Had all
the taxes been collected the 2.' mills
levy would have been sufficient to run
the present year. The amount that
was not collected is $1,713.17.
Making no reflections upon any pre
vious county administration, let us
make the following comparison: The
funds spent in the fiscal year, begin
ning November, 1891, and ending No
vember, 1892, were $13,754.35, while
the present fiscal year, on account oIf
the reduced levy, must be run on
$10,532.65, thereby making a difference
of $3,221.70. J. C. DOM INICK,

Thry Went to Trinity.
You may talk about hard times, but
the hardest time you ever saw was
had by some ladies last Sunday trying
to get to Trinity church. in this coun
ty. Saturday night they thought they
were solid, as they had secured the
promise of a conveyance for next day.
So they went to sleep with easy minds
and slept the sleep of innocence. But
alas for the frailty of earthly hopes
and of all things human. "The best
laid plans of mice and men gang aft
aglee," and so does the best laid plan
of mouse and woman-sometimes, but
not often. The day came, but the ve
bicle failed to put in its appearance
the man had actually forgotten his
promise to the ladies aud another
party had slipped in and taken posses
sion of the turnout Trinitywards.
WVbat was to be done? It would never
do not to get to Trinity! "Tempus"
was "fugiting," or words to tbatetfect,
and whatever was to do must be done
quickly. A one-horse wagon was pro
cured-but no atnimna: yet. At that
moment they would have given a
kingdom aud three or four biscuits for
a blind old humped-back mule, let
alone horse. It was not beauty they
cared for in this connection; it was
anything to make connection-except
perhaps the "Boyd goat." A "Black
Res." or a "Rosinante" either could
answer the purpose nicely. It would
have taken a good deal to console them
at this juncture. Even the contents
of "Schopenhauer's Pessimism, or the
Philosophy of Despair," coald not have
resigned them to their condition. Be
cause they had gone to Smyrna the
previous Sunday and enjoyed them
selves, though one of the fair creatures
did get dumped in the mud and it a
raining, was no reason why they must
content themselves quietly this Sun
day. Past joy doesn't count: present
happiness consists chiefly in anticipa
tion. "you know," so they were going
to Trinity or know the reason why,
and it was the "reason why" that was
"a-bothering of them, says she." They
hustled around lively and the neigh
borhood was scoured in search of an
animule or something, they cared not
what, so it could pall. When a
woman will she will, somebody once
said, and I believe him. You may
depend on that forever. Putting as
much energy into the enterprise as it
they were going to the World's Fair
orlEurope, they finally succeeded in
getting a steed. After all their trouble
there was no driver. The chap who
had accepted the invitation to hold the
reins backed down and out at the ap
pointed time. A dude was invited to
arive on the spur of the moment, but
he couldn't occupy the driver's seat
beeause his shoes were dilapidated and
infirm and he didn't want to expose
his toes to the curious gaze of the as
tonished .multitude. Several others
were asked to pull them out of the
bole ot difficulty, but "with one ac
cord they all began to make excuses:"
one had a previous engagement, and so
it went. At last, at last, when hope
was about to end in despair, when ead
ness was beginning to settle over their
hearts, a colored fellow, like a silver
lining to a dark cloud, or a bright ray
through the gloom, or an apple of gold
in a picture of silver, or something like
that, was brought to the rescue. Thbeir
bright eyes grew brighter now, and
gladness shone with its accustomed
halo on their counitenances. They
got there. Late, but-they got there,
and the round trip was made in such
quick time that one of them thought
the dashboard was in the hind end.

HOW THE DISPENSARY WORKS.
The teport of the First Month's BusInesm
Does Not Make a Promising Finaneial
Showing In the State.
[Special to News and Courier.1
COLUMBIA, August 12.-Governor
Tillmnan has changed his mind. That
is perhaps funny, but it is a fact. Per
haps it is not altogether a change, but
it is an amendment to his original
opinion. Last June he was quoted as
estimating the minimum profit for the
dispensary for the first year at half
million dollars. He thought it could
not be less with the sale of liquor aggre
gating a million gallons, At that time
be thought the dispensary law wduld
curtail the consumption of liquor by
about one-third. He now thinks after
viewing the operations of the law that
the law will decrease the consumption
by one-half. He now says that he
stands by his statement that the first
year's business will (after the things
gets into good shape) be at least $500,
000. He has had no reason to change
his mind on this subject, he says, and
as soon as all "blind tigers" are killed
out and dispensaries are generally
established he thinks his prediction
will be verified.
When I asked Governor Tillman
whether the falling off in sales was not
much more than he anticipated he re
"I am that much 'gladder.' I think
that with all the chunks a--id injunc
tions and stumos that the dispensary
has had up to this time it has been a
howling success, both as a temperance
movement and a, a revenue producer
for the State."
Governor Tillman says that the keep
ing up of the constabulary costs from
$100 to $150 per day. The statement
for July does not indicate that large an
amount, but Governor Tillman ex
plains that by saying that there are
now from forty to fifty constables em
ployed and that about the 1st of July
be was just getting things into shape.
He is now pruning down the force,
getting new ones, and "hanging up,"
some of those already on his lists.
The long expected report of the July
business of the dispensary has not
"turned out" to be what was expected.
The report does not give the amount of
income from tho various county dis
pensaries. This Governor Tiliman ex
plains by saying that so few of the
places were opened for the month that
he thoght it unfair to give the few
figures that had been received, and
especially as all of them were for only
portions of the month. The statement,
however, shows a great many very
interesting facts. Where the liquors
have been purchased, the amount sold
the dispensers, the value of liquors sold,
what the people are buying, and a
variety of other interesting particulars.
[The first tabrNted!' report shows
that the sum of $89,910.71 has been
spent for whiskey and the other items
--constabulary, fixtures, etc.-makela
total expense of $118.831.90, out of the
appropriation of $50,000.-ED; H. & N.1
