Gleanings about Newberrians Here, There
Editor Petty of the Carolina Spartan
carries a fountain of reminiscences in
his mind. He brings us in his paper
last week the names of several persons
whom Newberrians delight to remem
"While in Augusta, recently, Major
D. R. Duncan took tea with 15r. It. H.
Land, who left Spartanburg before the
war, when only thirteen years of age
and made Newberry his home, from
which place he enlisted in the 13th
South Carolins Volunteers. Dr. Land
married Miss Carwile and removed to
Augusta Georgia, where he has been
successfully engaged in the drug busi
ness. His wife was a graduate under
Dr. Warren DuPre, while he taught in
Newberry. Dr. Land has an interest
ing family of one son and two daugh
ters. His-sen is one of the firm of
Herrin & Land, druggists, in Augusta.
His old friends in Spartanburg will be
pleased to hear this good report of
His Thigh Broken.
The Newberry friends of Mr. A. J.
Sproles of Greenwood will regret to
learn that he met with an accident near
Hones Path on Wednesday last. He
and Mr. Shannon of Donalds were trav
elling in a buggy. Mr. Shannon got
out to see a friend when the horse be
came frightened and ran away, throw
ing Mr. Sproles out of the baggy and
breaking his thigh bone. He was car
ried into a house near by and made as
comfortable as possible and received
medical attention at once. We hope
his recovery will be speedy and com
Dr. Pope and the Governorship.
The Newberry Herald and News
truly says: "So farDr. Pope comes the
nearest to being a genuine Democrat of
all who have announced their candi
dacy for Governor." Dr. Pope seems
to be a fair, frank man who is not
afrai&toexpress his convictions; there
fore,tieinullitude will not follow him.
-They:seem to prefer the other kind.
They want leaders who will abuse the
old rg erowd, find fault with Cleve
land and make constant and malig
nant insinuations against the Demo
cratic party. Dr. Pope is not that sort
of a man and he will have to take a
back seat along with the Conservatives.
This paragraph about Dr.Pope's Dem
oeracy comes from the Carolina Spar
Good Timee in Georgia.
C. P. Dickert, formerly of Newberry,
S. C., having taken a lease of the Vida
ia hotel, took possession on the first
instant. Mr. Dickert has made Im
provements all round, and we can safe
jy say that those who patronize him
wilt have no cause to complain. C. P.
-was formerly employed with Pearson
Brothers in the capacity of book
keeper, and he and his excellent wife
are tog well and favorably known to our
citizens to need 'any introduction from

The Cow and the India Rubber BalL.
Mr. Shockley's cow took a part in a
game of ball last Thursday at, Helena
that came very near proving disastrous
to her.- The children were playing ball
on the Helena Commons where the
cow was grazing, and in tossing the
ball it rolled on the-grass near the cow.
* She took it in her mouth and began to
chew it. It was an India rubber ball,
and when she began to masticate the
children were greatly amused and
-said among themselves that she was
chewing gum. But it wasn't so funny
to the cow, for she got the ball down
her throat and it began to choke her.
Some of the citizens who were en
enjoying the cool breezes on their
porches soon came to.the help of the
cow and the relief of thechildren. A
hoe handle was brought into play
and an attempt made to drive the ball
down.tha- cow's throat' like loading a
gun in the old-fashioned manner. This
procedure only complicated the affair,
and another method was tried. The
cow's mouth was held open by putting
a piece of wood between her jaws, and
some melted lard poured down her
-throat. Then,while a little boy reached3
for the ball with hand thrust arm
length In the cow's mouth, the ball
was gradually loosened and pressed
forward by rubbing from the outside
until within reach of the boy's fingers
when the' work of extracting the ball
was sucessfully accomplished, and he
was rewarded with a twenty-five cent.
piec. for what he did. It was all very
peculiar to. the cow; and she is now
only fond of her kina of bawl.
The Citadel Boys.
The Herald and News made men
tion last week that Cadets Cozby and
Johnson had completed the Lcourse at
the Citadel. They must teach two
years in the pUblic schools because
they are beneficiaries of the State.
There is another Newberry boy there
.who also completes the course this year,
and not being a beneficiary cadet his
name was not in the list from which
the names of the other two were ob
e tained. He is William Smith Lang
ford, son of our. townsman, George A.
Langford. The cadets have gone into
camp at King's Mountain. They were
royally entertained on the way from
Columbia at Rock~ Hill and Yorkville,
having marched the route between the
Capt. Gibson Pronnoted.
The "Old Reliable" train on the Lan
rens road has lost a familiar lace, for
-last week Capt. Walter G. Gibson was
promoted. He is now in charge of the
new train between Columbia and Ashe
vilo which was put on last Sunday.
Capt. Gibson is one of the most courte
ous, polite and affable conductors on
any road anywhere in this broad land
of railways, and wherever you may go
you will not find a more pieasan g7en
tieman pulling a bell cord or attend
.ing to the wants of his passengers. It
is a loss to the "old reliable," but every
body who knows Capt. Gibson will be
glad that be has been promoted. Mr.
William Knickes,.who was conductor
of a freight train on the WaIhalla divis
ion, has taken charge of the "Old Be
If our town had been christened as,

now mourn in having our wings clipped
somewhat, for the mandate has gone
forth from the Government postal au
thorities that all such names shall r
have the "h" dropped, such as Spar
tanburgh, &c. The next thing is to take
the "guttural" off such places as
Winnsborough. You don't spell it with1
a grunt, but it would take extra effort
if you did.3

A Valuable Book.
John A. Chapman, of Newberry, the
venerable historian, has conferred a
lasting benefit on the youth of Sbuth
Carolina in the preparmtion of his
school history, which is now the stand
ard history adopted by the State board
of education. 71
After a careful perusal of the book
The Herald gives it unqualified en
dorsement. It is written in simple
language so as to be easily understood,
but in % bright and irtoresting style.
But the chief charm of the work, whi6h
makes it valuable as a text book,isItsab
solute correctness and impartiality. In
ourjndgmentit fills a long felt want and
other histories should be discarded at
once to be replaced by Chapman's
school history of South Carolina.
The above endorsement is from our
namesake,the Spartanburg Herald, and
It is a just commendation of Mr. Chap
man's valuable work for the State.

riots, have made a voluminous report.
Of the seven companies investigated
the Columbia Volunteers only are ex
onerated. Captain Capers, ,ith nearly'
all of his company, the Columbia
Znuaves, are found guilty of wilfully
disobeying orders. Captain Bateman,
of the Governor's Guards, is found
guilty of disobedience, with the excuse
admitted, that he believed marching
his company from the armory would
precipitate a riot. The York, Winne
boro and Rock Hill companies were
also found guilty of disobedience, in
the two latter cases the responsibility
being attributed to their oMeers. The
Gordon Volunteers, of Hampton, are
found guilty, the court stating that
their refusal to obey was on accountof
their business engagements. Major

The Southern Women's Historical Soclet
Resolved that the Poicy of Silence
Under Abuse Should Be Abandoned
-The Rev. Dr. Cave Says the

(New York Sun.]
Gen. Thomas L. Rosser, in a speeet
made at Richmond, Va., on Ducors
tion Day, when the monument t
Confederate soldiers and sailors wa
dedicated, attacked the pension systea
in these words:
"The men who overran us remin

whip us, but they devoured our sub
stance. The army that devoured u
was an army of substitutes. We kille<
all the substitutes. The men whon
they represented stayed at home an<
made money and.noi draw pensions
"I despise the man who gives Unite<
States money to a pensioner. Thi:
country cannot stand when it make
one citizen support another. I shal
never vote for a Congressman who i
in favor of Government pensions."
After some talk about the G. A. R.
he concluded by saying:
"Some time ago weunveiled a monu
ment to the greatest General who eve
lived. To-day we unveil a monumen
to the greatetst private soldiers who eve
lived, and in time we will unveil
monument to the President or th
Confederacy. But we are mocked a
the North and will live to see the Yan
kee army march again through th
South and pull down our monumenuts
I don't know what sort of stuff th
rising generation is made of, but If yot
and I are living there'll be bloodsbet
when that is done."
Gen. Rosser's speech was delivered al
the cavalry parade. At the dedicatior
of the monument the Rev. -R. C. Cavf
of Richmond had his Innings. Thes
are some of the things he said, and thf
reports of his speecb are intersperse
wi;h bracketed applause, which is sak
to have grown more enth6siastic at tbi

a Herod was crowned and a Chris1

Wrong on the throne.'
"Appomattox was a triumph of thf

tially different civiliz>tions and antag

"On one side in that conflict was the
South, led by cavaliers, who, with al:
their faults, had inherited from a lonj
line 6f-ancestors a manly contempt foi
itoral littleness, a high sense of honor,
a lofty regard - for plighted faith, a
strong tendency to conservatism, a pro

"Against the South was arrayed the
power of the North, dominated by the
spirit of Puritanism, which, with all itU
virtues, has ever been characterized bS
the Pharisaism that worships itself and
is unable' to pereive any goodness
apart from iteelf; and from the time of
Oliver Cromwell to the time of A bra
ham- Lincoln has never hesitated tc
traiple noon the rights of others it
order to effect its own ende.
"At Appomattox Puritanism, backed
by overwhelming numbers and un
limited reseurcee,- prevailed. But brute
force cannot settle questions of righi
and wrong. Thinking men do uo1
fudge the merits of a cause by the
measure of its success; and 1 believe

These two speeches, as well as one
miade by Col' Wells Blodgett at the

veilingof the monument to the memory
if the Cofederate soldiers and sailors
at Richmond, Va., was read from Inst
Sunday's Republic and warmly ap
plauded. Col. Wells Blodgett's vindi
sation of Gen. John McNeil then came
in for a good share of the ladies atten
tion, and for some very caustic
eriticism. It was moved that a corn
cittee be appointed to draw up resolu
tions expressing the sentiments of the
society on the subjects discussed. One
lady, who objected to having her name
given, thought it better to take no
otice or Mr. Blodgett's address-she
believed in the policy of silence-why
keep alive painful memories?
Mrs. Meriwather said the policy of
silence might do very well if the other
side would keep It. As long as such
ipeeches as. Col. Blodgett's are made
>ver the graves of such men as McNeil,
she said it was the sacred duty of
Bouthern men and women by. every
means in their power, to promulgate
be real facts of the war between the
5Torth and the South; its real cause; its
sonduct; its results, direct and indirect.
rhere is too much ignorance on these
points. Tbe conquering party all
Ilonig has distorted some things, cou
~esled others, and misstated many
tventIs. -Southern people have been so
ong slandered and maligned that the
whole Northern heart is hardened to

:tchered been any other than South
~rn men, bad they been ten innocent
iegroe', or Irish, or heathben Chinee',
aven at this late day shudders of horror
would creep over eve.ry humian at the
nention of McNeil's name. But
imply and solely because these ten
nen were Southern, th"ir murder is
ipproved; a costly monument is erected
o the botcher's memory, anid over his'
irave the boast is made that Lincoln
promoted him for his bloody deeds. In
his way, said she, the minds of the
~resent generation are poisoned against
ur people, and the old cruel hate of
~he past Is perpetuated. Thbere is no
emedy for this wrong but to meet
~asehood with facts; slander with
The committee presented the follow

were unanimously adopted. The lady
who favored the policy of silence
