Opening days in Newberry are get
ting to be very popular and fashionable
occasions. Last Thursday and Friday
were big days at Davenport & Ren
wick's, and crowds of handsome ladies
thronged the store all of both days.
The store was a thing of beauty, and
we hope will be a joy forever. The
piles of bandsome dress goods, and the
stacks of pretty hats were all beauti
fully arranged in accordance with the
taste of Misses Heisner and Kibler so
as to present a picture that was lovely
Messrs. Davenport, Renwick, Kinard
and Hathaway were at their best, and,
gallant gentleman that they are, spared
no pains in showing the excellences
and beauties of the large and varied
stock of dress goods, shoes, etc., that
this well known firm carries in stock.
The ladies were all delighted and the
beauties of these opening days are on
the lips of all of them. And no one
will make a mistake in buying a dress
or hat of this firm.
The Herald and News man cannot
undertake to go into the details.

the store was filled with the ladies of
New berry who were admiring thA ele

displayed in ishowsng off the trim

REV. J. S. COZBY, D. D.
Resolutions Adopted by the Pastors of
At a mecting of the pastors of New
berry, held on the 18th instant, the fol
lowing resolutions were adopted:
WHEREAS, Rev. J. S. Cozby, D. D.. Pastor of
the Presbyterian church. departed this life on
the toth instant. in the 57th year of his age, and
in the 8th year of his ministry in this town; and,
whereas, we have been intimately associated
with him in pastoral work in this community
for a considerable period of time, therefore, be it
z. That we hereby testify our appreciation of
his high intellectual attainments, and the in
dustrious use of his well trained mental powers
and the consecration of his learning and scholar
ship to the preaching of the Word and to the work
of the ministry. The lamp of his pulpit was
constantly supplied with varefully prepared oil,
and his preaching was always edifying and
fragrant with gospel affection.
2. t in the opportunity afforded us to
observe his pastoral work we saw that he regarded
himself an undershepherd of Him who laid down
His life for the sheep, and he studied and prayed
and laborcd and literally wore himself out for the
souls entrusted to his care. We extend our sym
pathy to his sore bereaved flock, and charge them
to treasure the truths he taught and that they
honor the memory of this manof God, their
Pastor, by lives of gospel holiness.
3. That we record our gratitude to the King
and Head of the Chuuch for the companionship
of this able minister of the New Covenant, this
humble servant of our Master, and that we
cherish a good hope that when our work is done
we will share with him the joy of our Lord. In
all his intercourse wi h us in our respective flocks
and in the general work for the welfare of this
community he was an unselfish co-worker, a
wise counsellor, and to each one of us a brother
4. That we extend to his widow and children
and sister the sincere sympa;hy of our sorrowing
hearts. We know as no others do, the arduous
labor and the stern self-denial which bind the
hearts of a Pastor's household and we pray God
to sup ly all their temporal wants and to energize
the life of each one of them with the excellencies
ofChristian character illustrated by their elevated
husband and affectionate parent and faithful

fact to be regretted is that so many
think it necessary to leave the State to

of taxable property, that they will be
able to run thschools for the fall term
without calling on the public to sus
tain them by voluntary subscriptions.
The Board recommends the voting
for the levy of 2 mill tax this day for
the continued maintenance of the
schools. Respectfull submitted.
. E. PELHAM,
Chairman pro tem.
The report and recommendations
were adopted as read.
It was moved and adopted that the
Board of Trustees be authorized to ap
point a Board of Visitors to the school,
should they deem it expedient, and to
define the duties of the said board.
It was also moved and adopted that
the Board of Trustees be authorized to
have printed annually 300 copies of a

The Herald and News made lots of
mistakes in setting up our last "Dots."
The word "clearer," as it appeared in
the paper, was written "clever" in our
MS. The word "regret" appeared in
place of "neglect," and the word "cir
culation" in place of "legislation"; and
then, again,, we found that several
words had been left out, which spoiled
our composition. That kind of "doc
toring" won't work.
A certain gentlemaan in this county
who, it is said, intends to enter the race
for Congress, went to a colored school
house a few miles from this place
sometime ago, and while speakiug and
giving out registration tickets, a negro
on one of the back seats commenced
laughing, whereupon an old fellow sit
ting just in front of him turned on him
with a scornful look and rebuked him
thus: "What you laughin' at, you d-n
fool you, wnen somebody's tryin' ter
put er silver spoon in yo' mouf an' you
won't take it." We tell the tale as
'twas told to us.
We read the following in a story
paper under the title of "Items of In
terest." "It is estimated that a man
sixty years old has devoted seven
months of his life to buttoning his
shirt collar." If cotton doesn't go up
will the coming generation lose that
much time fumbling with their shirt
Mrs. Mahala Fulmer, of Orangeburg,
is visiting friends and relatives in this
A new schoolhouse has just been
completed near the junction of the
Buncomb and New berry and Hughey's
Fer roads, on a lot purchased from
Mr. Q. M. Kinard. It will be known
as the Fork Academy.
For the benefit of those late aspirants
to Gubernatorial and Congressional
honors we quote the following:
"Thou hat a charmed cup, O fame!
A draught that mantles high.
And seems to lift this earthly frame
It' is our opinion that this same
"charmed cup" has lifted some of the
politicians not above mortality, but
above the atmosphere of reason, where
they are now reposing like infants
though not so harmless-on the lap of
fanaticism while a kind of 'possum
smile lights up their countenance
which leaves us under the impression
that they are dreaming of being carried
in the arms of fame along the rough
and rugged road to office. But at last
the election, like a bolt of thunder, will
shake the political firmament to its ut
most limits, and then will our dream
ing, scheming, office-seeking Inde
pendents, Republicans, etc., awake and
stand like blasted saplings (not tree,
though old enough to be,) after the po
litical storm is past, ever after bearing
the mark by which they will be known
and known only to be detested, and
"How loved, how valued once, avails thee
To whom related. or by whom begot:
A heap ot chaff alone remainsof thee:
Tis aul thou art, and all the proud shall be."

At Two Dollars for the Next Sixty Days.
We have mentioned the fact several
times before that we had published
the Annals of Newberry. The book is
much larger than at first contemplated,
and we cannot sell it for less than $3.00
per copy Nvithout loss, but as every one
seems to think that is too high and re
alizing the hard times and the low price
of cotton, we have decided to sell it for
the next sixty days at $2.00 a copy.
We have quite a number on hand yet
and we ask every one who wants a
copy of this valuable book to call and
get a copy while it can be had at this
remarkably low price. It is a book that
should be in the hands of every family
in Newberry County. If it is not con
venient for you to call at the office, send
$2 and we will mail it to you promptly.
Newberry is the only County in-he
State that has the honor of having its
annals written and published, and the
people should not suffer the publishers
to keep the books on hand. At this
price we cannot afford to-pay agents to
sell it, but we more than save the com
mission to the purchaser by his sending
to or calling at the office for his copy.
Mr. C. F. Boyd has a few copies on
hand which he will sell at the same
price. We ought to sell all that we have
on hand by the first of November, so
call early and be sure of a copy. Let
every,man in Newberry County secure
for himself a copy of this valuable book,
and our word for it, he will never have
cause to regret it.
Miss Maggie Rodeloperger died in
Newberry on Sunday morning, 23d
instant aged about 20years. She was
a young lady of gentle disposition and
greatly beloved by her associates and in
her death the family has the sympathy
of the entire community.
Mrs. Sarah Patten Sykes, wife of
Mr. C. H. Sykes, died at Georgiaville,
R. I., on August 28th, aged 50 years.
She resided in Newberry while Mr.
Sykes was connected with the New
berry Cotton Mills, and her friends
here will regret to learn of her death.
Mrs. Rebecca Cromer di.-d nbar <
O'Neall on Saturday. 22nd instant,
aged about 75 years. Mrs. Cromer had
been a consistent member of Bethel
Baptist Church for many years.
During the last few years, age and dis
ease kept her from enjoying the privi
lege of attending public worship, but
she bore her affiretion and privation
with Christian courage and submis- 1
on. Now comes rest. A large num
ber of friends witnesed her burial, at t
Zion M. E. Church last Sunday t
morning. J. W. B.
While in Chicago, Mr. Charles L. Kabler, a
>rominent shoe merchant of Des Moines,
owa, had quite a serious time of it. Be took
uch a severe cold that he could haZ talk or
mavigate, but the prompt use o ber
ain's Cough Remedy cured him is cold
o quickly that others at the hotel who had
ad colds followed his example and half a
lozen persons ordered it from the nearest
rug store. They were refuse in their thanks
o Mr. Kabler for telling them how to cure a
