FmEE!!!-A destructive fire occured at
Ninety Six, S. C., December 21st, by which
four stores valued at $20.000 were burned.
The further spread of the conflagration, with
probable destruction of the whole town and
loss of several hundred thousand dollars
worth of property, and many lives, was pre
vented by the arival of a Great American
Fire Extinguisher, an Agent happening to
come in town at the nick of time. For fall
partic!ars, see the Abbeville Medium and
Newberry HERALD of the following week.
Mr. P. P. Toale, of Charleston, S. C., is
the General Southern Agent for the Great
American Fire Extinguisher, and will answer
all inquiries in regard to the same. 4-tf.
MESRs. KINGSLAND & HEATH, like
the rest of mankind who are endeavor

gcods at cheap prices, are up in the

China, Glass, Crockery, Wood, Tin and
Iron ware and Fancy Articles is of end
less variety and superior excellence,
and at such prices as cannot fail to suit
the depleted pocke s of the people.

To SMOKERS.-Messrs. Perry &
Slawson, the popular segar dealers in
Columbia, are always up with the times,
and therefore to keep up with the pop
ular idea they offer great bargains to
smokers. It is astonishng how they
can afford to offer segars as cheap as
they do, but truth is stranger than fic
tion, and it is only necessary to try
them to be convinced. Just think of
getting a whole box of segars for $1.25;
think of it, and-if you have the money 1
send at once for a supply. Think of it!
and if you have not so small a sum, weep
because of your impecuniosity. One

JUDGE MOSES AND THE GRAND

rigor and determination which is en

il not fail to attract attention, and
0ming as they do from the pen of a
itizen of Newberry, whose literary
abilities are of acknowledged superior- t
ity, it is needless for us to more than
draw attention to the fact of their pub- I

WELL DONE-The farmiers of liw

sperience, and their determination to
ke a step in advance will be strength

reat advantages which will result from
