THE BOLL WORM IN NEWBERRY
Making Havoc with the Cotton Crop In
Various Sections of the County.
Last week The Herald and News
gave tbe information tbat the Arkan
sas or T. xas boll worm had made its
appearance in Newberry County in
sufficient numbers to cause some
alarm to the farmers. Tbe reports from
the farmers and the specimens of the
destruction the boll worm is doing to
the cotton crop is assuming -a most
On Monday Mr. D. P. Bouknight,
living near Bush River, four miles from
town, sent in a lot of bolls, showing
the worms at work, just as he had gath
ered they from his fields. Mr. Bauk
night fears that his whole crop will be
totally destroyed by the worms.
Mr. J. H. Chappell also furnished
some specimens of the work the worms
had gotten in on his crop, and on a
stalk with seven bolls there were five
bolls that had been destroyed.
From all sections of the county The
Herald and News has received reports
of destruction by the boll worms.
Capt John F. Banks says that they
are at work in his neighborhood and in
his crop. From the Beth Eden section
also come similar reports.
The boll worm is at home in the lux
uriant growth of cotton that abounds
in many sections of Newberry County,
as he is safe from the penetrating rays
of a September sun, and can get in an
alarming amount of work before frost.
With dry weather, however, there is
hope that the worm will disappear.
The boll worm has heretofore been
almobt entirely unknown in this sec
tion, although some few such worms
have been seen here during the last
two or three years.

ing. The school is better equipped for
doing its work than it has ever been,
being supplied from time to time with
apparatus so necessary in school work,
and under the present sur?ounding,
the enrollment has never been higher

each day. Rev. J. H. Wyse preached
the morning sermon on Wednesday,
which was only help Rev. Bowles had.
There were twenty confirmations. At
the meeting Rev. Bowles announced
among other things that an effort
would be made to organize a Young

soon as possible; that after services on

p. m.) steps would be taken to find out
if a sufficient number would join be

Our friend "Alpha" of the "Voice"
had the honor of extending to us a
kind invitation to accept a seat in his
buggy last Saturday morning, which
invitation we readily accepted, and
soon found ourself on the way to the
Sunday-school picnic at Bethlehem.
Arriving on time we entered the church
where we listened with pleasure to the
sweet songs of praise, followed by
Scripture lesson and prayer by the pas
tor, and next to an excellent address
by G. B. Cromer, Esq. Subject, The
unselfish boy and the unselfish girl.
The congregation was then dismissed,
when the undersigned, yielding to
some powerful influence, possibly in
stinct or foreknowledge, that well-filled
baskets were near at hand, soon found
himself in the grove and standing near,
yes, very near, a table spread on the
ftesh green grass and laden both in
quantity and quality with every "eata
ble" that makes picnics enjoyable, and
to which everybody was kindly invited
to partake. After dinner the young
folks took charge of affairs-their own
affairs, of course-and managed them
according to their several interests.
That is our conclusion, at least.
The election is over, and with a few
exceptions those candidates who were
in are still in and thosea who were out
are still out. It's a strange fact that
men who claim to be Reformers "to
the core" will cast their vote and use
their influence in favor of candidates
who represent principles entirely det
rimental to the interests of Reform
when they have candidates'in the field
who are Reformers "to the core," also,
and who advocate and uphold the
principles or measures on which Re
form is based. Yet we hear this same
class of Reform~ pleading for "meas
ures and not me'." Do they expect to
successfully carry out Reform meas
ures by supporting anti-Reform candi
dates? If they are inoerested in Re
form and desire to make it a success
they should support only true blue
Reforniers from Governor down to
Coroner who advocate Reform meas
ures and who will stand by them in
tbe face of all opposition.

of road last Thursday afternoon and
Friday following. Now its real nice
to talk and write and go abont making
speeches on having good roads and all
tbat sort of thing, but when one has to
pick up his shovel and help, t~o "round
them up in the middle" it's not so very
nice. BIut then good roads are abso
lutely necessary and we must have
them. JOSH TRUMP

The North King's Crown.
The following poetic production from
the facile pen of a gifted young Caro
lina woman, recently a resident of
Newberry but now a citizen of New
Orleans, will be read with pleasure by
her friends and admirers. She writes
well and easily in both verse and prose.
The sentiment of "The North King's
Crown" is good and beautifully ex
pressed, while the rhythm and meter
are faultless. The fifth verse is excep
tionally fine. We hope she may soon
again favor The Herald and News:
On the wings of the wind the North
To invade a kingdom fair,
'The subjects of May first oppose his
Then bow with a frightened air.
For his mien was fierce, and his step
And they felt with vague alarm
That the gentle sway of their loved
Was threatened with awful harm.
His breath blew keen o'er hill and dale,
He raised his head on high,
And whistled a tune to the rising moon
In bhrill monotone.
His throne he placed on a mountain
His robes were dazzling white,
His sceptre swayed an- his messengers
O'er the land bearing chill and blight.
He called for the crown that the good
In ride had been wont to wear;
But is messengers sighed, as in vain
To revive that garland fair.
For the matchless crown of flowerets
Had withered away in dread,
So the North King's gem is a diadem
Of icicles instead.

spavin, swellings and all diseasess of
