H. II. AULL, EDITOH.
The State board of dispensary con
trol purchased last week at ono time
11,218 barrels of whiskey. Counting
Z'I gallons to the barrel would be 354,
367 gallons of whiskey at one pur
ch:kse. This strikes us as a pretty big
purchase at one time and would quench
the thirst of a great many people. Or
)o put it differently it would make a
good many headaches. If this were
distributed among the counties equally
it, would give to each county about 8,
859 gallons. That much whiskey in
Newbery would give each man, woman
and ch(ild in t,hc county nearly a half
gallon. So you see it, is not so much
after all. And yet we could not say it
was a very long step toward prohibi
tion and neither would there be occasion
for any eitizen to go thirsty.
Of course, we supposeo this represents
only a part of the purchase if it is
properly reported, for there is always
at purchase of what is known as case
We do not much like the idea of the
State being in the whiskey business.
This much money spent for clothing or
bread would clothe and feed a good
many people. Yet, strango to say,
people who need these things will
spend their money for whiskey. We
do not mean to say that the State be
ing in business i)creases the amount
spent for whiskey, but, it looks a little
like the State is endorsiig and encour

Veteran Geargp S. Noland.
Perhaps the only enlisted man in the
2d South Carolina who served in the
Confedermte army is George S. Noland,
quartermaster sergeant of Company G.
Sorgt. Noland was born in Union
County fifty-three years ago, and served
through the civil war in Cotu
nany 1B, 18th South Carolina, Wal
laice's brigade. He onlisted as a pri
vato in Company G, 2d South Carolina,
last Juy and was made quartermaster
by Ca it. MeCaughrin. Sergt, Noland's
oxIerienee in the Confederate war
glve,s him the "drop" on some of the
younger members of his class, and
Company G reaps the bonelit of this
experience. The sergeant never asks
'odds" of any other quartermaster ser
geant., but he always manages to "do
the hcavy" v'hon it comes to supplying
his men with the necessaries of life.
The men of Company G admiro and re
spect their quartermastor, and he do
serve', it, too.
Tle above is from the special cor
respondent of the News and Courier in
writing of the several company quarter
masters of the 2d South Carolina Reg
iment and as Mr. Noland has lived
many years in Newbr,.'y and has many
friends in this county we Copy it with

A good many of our friends have said,
"What's the matter, Chips, that we've
had no chippings for the past while?"
Well, dear friends, nothing in partiou
lar, but a good deal . in general. Old
man Chips know nothing that ws
bright and encouraging to write about,
the tefo-e he never likes to be pointing
at the black side of every thing he sees.
There is things that we know, and often
th'-gs happen to our, mind which we
would rather not know. But still it is
our prerogative not to tell all we know,
and we notice that our old friend Kay
takes the same advantage. But let the

Bad colds have become an el)idemic.
Miss Mary Sligh, of Slighs, has been

sections of the county. What a pity
for the people to lose their meat, es
pecially during such stringent times as
the country is undergoing.
Thero will be considerable moving
among the white people, of which I
will note later.
Our school at Union academy is in a
liourishing condition under the aus
piecs of Miss Bessie Domninich. Miss
leasic is a highly accomplished lady in
every respect, and our proepects for a
good school have never been better.
A good many news itetus have hap
pened since our last letter which we
would have been pleased to mention,
but they have grown old and we will
pass then by.

Mr. Ed. Strauss is building a nice
tenant house on his lialfacre place,
which will be occupied by Mr. Levi
Gruber, of Pomaria section, another
year. Mr. Strauss is one of those boys
that don't believe in doing things by
halves. The house is built out of the
very best material, an, everything is
being fitted up very conveniently.

We think this is promotion enough for

do y'ou think of this.
It, will sooni be timne for our law-mak
ers to meet~ arain. If the wvhole State
sends~ as good a (delegation as Newherry
it will certainly be a representative

our State. lie is well liked and dleserv

his practice in the courts has shown
that, he is a younzg man tf more than
