Some Counties, in which two or three
thousand dollars have been collected,
are boasting of the promnptn'ess of their
taxpayers. New berry County has real
ly something to boast of. Our Treasu

2th, inclusive, 412 receipts,aggregating
For the like period last year tihe num
ber of receipts was 332, aggregating
$5,146.15, leaving a balande in favor of
1879 of 80 receip)ts, amounting to $899,
43. Considering the differences in taxes
last year and this the above showing in
dicates that the County is in a better
condition than it was last year.

strange that so few men and women

The Best Place.
It was onr pleasure to mix with the
ladies on the occasion of the Templars
pic nic, and we felt greatly refreshed
andl benefitted by it-always do. In
ladies' society a man is safe. and well
cared for, especially ait a pic nic; they
know all about the nice things, which
are the sweetest of the cakes, the ten
deest of the chickens, and then they
have such a dlelightful way of deluding
a man, especially an editor, into the idea
that he is eating next to nothing, and
that this is silver cake, that gold, and
that the lightest of jelly cake. Unlike
Dr. Hliden who used some uncompli
mentary remarks about ladies, we can
only speak in terms of praise. The
ugly ones are those who are ugly in
temper and mind, and they are scarce,
a beautiful face and person are not the
only indexes to judge by, we have heard
the low soft voice, and seen the smile
which rendered the plainest face beau
tiful. We like thenm all, and will con
tinue to do so while reason holds her
The Academy Picnic.
Tfhe annual picic of the young ladies of
Capt. Pifer's Academy, camne off on Friday
last in the beautiful grove belonging to Mr.
Cline, a spot partieularly adapted for sylvan
frolis of this character. The day, too,
was delightfvlly charming, the atmosi.here
being fresh and bracing, and ha.d the young
ladies been gifted with the power to choose
weather best suited for their 'fes:' they
could not have done better for this ocea
sion. Trhe majority of the litdle misses and
their gallant little chevaliers were conveyed
to the ground in wagons, the most approv
ed style known to Young Amterica, and the
miore crow ded the better, the more advanced
in teens and dignity of charm preferring
less crowded and noisy modes. Thiere was
no difficulty, however, in getting there,
ample convenience being afforded, and it
was pleasant to see so large a cro wd of pa
rents and children, "uncles, aunts and cous
ins" collected together on the green sward.
As no one felt particularly called upon to
open the festivities or set the ball in motion
for fun, the morning hours till dinner were
occupied by niothers in passing around
their babies and comparing notes, (and we
are pleased to say there were sonie fine
specimens present;) by the little misses
(what a host of thenm there were) ini troop
ig about in dozens, costumed in beautiful
variety, the principal arnd striking features
being colored streamers or sashes and mar
vellously striped stockings-how pretty
they looked and how admiringly fond pa
rents gazed at themt ; by the larger misses
and youths in peepi'ng slyly at each other
a few only finding courage to couple and
talk sweet nothings under shady oaks ; by
gentlemen who were attracted by the pros
pect of the basket irefreshmtient-particular
h good on these occasions, and in the get
ting up of which the ladies of Newberry
canot be excelled-itn counting the rmin
utes and wondering whetn the goodies would
be spread.. D)uring this quiet initerregnum

The Good Templar's Picnic
Came off Wednesday, 21st, in the
grove at Jones' Tan Yard. It was in
tended as an Anniversary Celebration
of the Order in this County. The at
tendance was not as large as was ex
pected; yet there was quite a number
present. The day was a beautifuil one,
and every arrangement had been made
to insure the comfort and pleasure of
all. A stand for the speakers, another
for the Band, and seats for both ladies
and gentlemen. besides a bountiful sup
ply of good thiugs to satisfy the crav
ings of the inner man, had been pre
pared. James P:,.cker, Esq(., acted as
master of Ceemonies and introduced
the speakers with a few appropriate re
Rev. J. C. Hiden, D.D., of Green
ville, spoke first. The Doctor has, we
believe, a fine reputation as a speaker;
and his advocacy of temperance has
given him a reputation in that line that
aroused high expectations. The audi
ence expected to hear something better
than ordinary. That expectation, how
ever, was not gratified. The speaker
was entertaining for the most part; told
some laughable anecdotes, an(d he tells
them well; but there was nothing new
nor eloquent in his address, :md very
little concerning the subjept in hand.
The objects of speaking are to amuse,
instruct and persuade. His address, as
to the first particular, may be regarded
as a success.
The other speaker, Rev. A. Coke
Smith, of Greenville, delivered a very
good address. He spoke in favor of
prohibitory laws-laws to prohibit the
sale of spirituous liqnors except by drug
gists, as a medicine. Although we do
not agree with his views on this sub
ject, yet we give him cred:t of main
taining them with much ability.
After the speeches all present partook
of a dinner. Concerning this feature
of the occasion there was only one opin
ion; that a',s that it was excellent.
The Band was present, and added
greatly to the pleasures of the day by
their fine playing.
At night Dr. Hiden delivered an ad
dress in Thespian Hall to a good audi
ence, his object being to overthrow
sonic cf the popular fallacies concern
After having heard Dr. Iliden on
these two occasions we can readily un
derstand why he is so much disliked by
liquor dealers. His abuse of them is
unbounded; they are portrayed by him
as the vilest, meanest creatures of hu
man kind ; their gains he styles "coined
damnation and shining hell." No won
der he is not popular with them-a
fact which appear.s to give him much
pleasure. lie doesn't stop with the
sellers; but is almost as bitter against
the drinkers. If he supposes that he is
helping the cause of temperance by
such speeches as he delivered here he
is greatly mistaken. lHe not only does
no good as a temperance man, but he
is certainly destroying his influence as
a minister of the gospel. A minister,
if lie expects to do good to mankind,
must cultivate their good graces.
No minister can influence those who
dislike him. A minister should not
compromise his ideas of right and
wrong; but he should exercise some
discretion and common sense.
We might say a good deal about the
Doctor's style. To use his expression,
we "object" to it-decidedly. It is al
together too clownish, and his language
is not always as chaste as it should be.
We make these criticisms in all kind
ness; would much prefer to speak in
more complimentary terms; but cannot
do so consistently.
The Helena School Exhibition and Picnic
Was held in the grove at Helena Fri
day, the 23d. This is a colored school,
and has a large number of pupils, the
average attendance being between 110
and 120. The principal of the school is
the wife of R. E. Williams, and she is
assisted by the wife of WV. HI. Snead.
The exercises Friday consisted in decla
mation, dialogues and singing, in all
which the pupils acquitted themselves
remarkably well, there being not a sin
gle failure in the whole programme.
Eight or ten whites, including the trus
tees and the H-ERALD Editors, were
present by invitation, and all unite in
pronouncing the exhibition a perfect
success. These were called upon for
speeches after the exercises were over,
and one of their number, in behalf of
all, in a few words complimented the
teachers and pupils on the manner in
which they had performed their duties.
Rev. Mance was then called on, and
made a very sensible address of ten
minutes. The visitors were not allow
ed to leave till they had been treated to

The Extra Court of Common Pleas,
which began the 6th instant, adjourned
Thursday, the 22nd. Judge Aldrich,
by request of the Bar, consented to hold
the term for the purpose of clearing, as
far as practicable, the dockets. Since
1868 our Courts have been very irregu
lar. The Judges that we have had, adii
the juries that had been almost invaria
bly drawn, were incompetent to deal
with the Livil business. Cases accumu
lated from year to year, till at the open
ing of the late terni there were upon
Calendar 1-the jury Calendar-101
cases; and (n Calendar 2. 121; ases.
The Court was called for a time of the
sear when farmers are very busy put
ting in and starting their crops, ad
some complaint was at first made on
this account. The opposition, however,
developed very little strength. It was
thought by the Bar that much incon
venience would be saved to witnesses,
who for the most part were farmers, by
assigning certain cases to certain d1ays.
so that their attendance would not he
required except for a day or two, and
this plan was accordingly adopted. A
great deal of work was accomplished.
and Judge Aldrich richly deserves the
thanks of the people of this County for
his self-sacrificing labors in their be
half. Of the 101 cases on Calendar 1,
62 were continued, 10 were settled, 9
were struck off, and there were 20 ver
dicts by the jury. Of the 126 cases on
Calendar 2-issues of law and fact-103
were continued, 15. were ended, and 8
were struck off. A large number of
the continued cases are almost ended,
and are only kept on the Calendars
awaiting confirmation of sales, &c.
Thursday morning, before Court ad
journed, Maj. Jones, senior member of
the Bar, arose, and addressing the
Court said: May it please your Honor:
Before Court is adjourned I have a mat
ter to bring to your Honor's attention.
I am not in favor of lauding public offi
cers indiscriminately. When a public
officer discharges his duty he does no
more than he is required to do; but
when he goes beyond the requirements
of his duty, and sacrifices his own con
venience and time and money for the
public good, it is proper that he should
receive the praise due such conduct.
He then read the following preamble
At a meeting of the Newberry Bar
held on 22nd May 1879, L. J. Jones,
Esq., was called to the chair, and L. W.
Simkins, Esq., requested to act as Sec

andl resolutions were offered and unani
WHEREAS, the Honorable Alfred P.
Aldrich, Judge of the Second Circuit,
has, of his kind interest in tihe admin
istration of justice in our County, and
in response to the request of this Bar,
held an extra term of the Court~of
Common Pleas at this place for the
two and a half weeks just past:
AND WHERIEAS, his Honor has, dar
ing the said term, brought to a conclu
sion a very large number of cases
which had encumbered our dockets for
years and, by remaining undisposed of
had caused serious injury to many of
AND WVHEREAS, his Honor has con
ducted tihe business of the said term
with unvarying diligence and impar
tiality, dignity and ability.
Now, therefore, be it unanimously
resolved by the Bar of Newberry.
1st. That his Honor Judge Aldrich is
entitled to the gratitude of the whole
people of Newberry.
2nd. That his Honor has theunqual
ified thanks and respect of this Bar for
the able manner in which he has per
formed his said self-imposed duties.
3d. That the Chairman of this meet
ing present these resolutions to his Hion
or in open Court, and have them printed
in the newpapers of this County.
His Honor Judge Aldrich replied in
a few appropriate words, and Court was
Twenty-five cents a mile is pretty
steep fare on a railroad, yet that is what
a party of seven gentlemen had to pay
Friday between Newberry and Helena.
From "time immemorial" it has not
been customary to charge any fare be
tween these two points; but the small
boys and darkies got to crowding the
cars so much as to become a nuisance,
and the authorities recently began -to
charge in order to break down this nui
sance. It is perfectly proper that they
should charge somethinlg: but twenty
five cents a mile is extortionate and un
reasonable. These seven men had busi
ness at Helena that day, and wvould
have paid five or ten cents cheerfully
for the ride; but they consider it an
outrage (on a small scale) that they
were compelled to pay a quarter to ride
one mile, especially as they had had no
notice beforehand of any such rate.

the strain of a song, and 'the young
heart experiences poetry as it never
could be entrusted to paper.
The Cleveland Voice makes this re

'I know I am a perfect bear in my

sweetheart. 'No indeed, you are not,
John; you have never hugged me yet;
you are more sheep than bear.'
The heat of summer is felt at last, and
the intrusive, never idle fly lights on

without fear of falling. We wait now
the advent of the mosquito.
There must have been a falling out
in the planetary system last week, the
effects of the coolness resulting there

Beef commands in the Abbeville mar
ket, says the rress & Banner, from 5 to
6 cents per pound; butter, 10 to 15;

There is an old adage that cows far

Some one wrote to t he (ditor 6fa coun
try paper to ask how he would 'break
an ox?' The editor answered as
follows: 'If only one ox, a good way
woill be to hoist him. by means of a
chain attached to his tail, to the top of
a pole forty feet from the ground.
Then hoist him, by a rope tied to hi:s
horns, to another pole. Then diest vni
on his back a live pile-driver, and, if
that don't break him. let him tart a
country newspaper and trust people for
subscriptions. One of the two ways

"Young Trout-Fisher" wants us to
tell him "how to throw a fly." My
young friend, there are various ways of
throwing a fly. The collar-and-elhow
is about the squarest way of doing it,
as the advantages then are abc:t equal.

try him side-hold. If we wanted to
throw a fly we would prefer a run-and
catch-catch who catch can. If you
don't want to take any risk in the busi
ness, place a banana-skin in front of
the fly and let him throw himself.
