Is very much perplexed, he hoars so
many things. He had determined not
to go fishing again, but being button
holed by a man who lives near the riv
er and has observed all the signs, and
who imparted the secret of successful
fishing to him, he don't; care now if he
tries his hand once more. The secret
is in the wind. When it blows from
the South fish are afflicted with a mania
for biting, and will bite at any kind of
bait, and allow themselves to be caught.
Sniffges is going to try it on and if it fits
he promises to tell us all about it. First
he is going to erect weathercocks all
all around his house, so as to be duly
warned as to tbe blowing of the South
wind, andz one in his bat to guide him
when away from home. We sincerely
hope that our unfortunate friend is on
the right track at last.

The Newberry Debating Club
At its meeting Monday night dis
cussed the question whether the gov
ernment ought to suppress Mormonism.
The question was decided in the nega
tive. Arrangements were made for a
public debate the night of the 15th of
May at the usual place of meeting, Tem
perance Hall. The Club elected the
following debaters for the occasion, two
for each side': Messrs. James Packer,
G. B. Cromer, G. G. Sale and Jno. B.
Jones. The question for debate will be
announced by the President on the
night of the debate. The debate will
therefore be extempore.
The question for the next regular

About six weeks ago a six year old
son of Mr. W. W. Spence, of this Coun
ty. was bitten by a dog. The wound
healed up, and the child appeared to be
in usual health until Tuesday, the 11th
instant. when symptoms of bydropho
bia were observed. Drs. Keitt and Ruff
were sent for, and as soon as they saw
the child pronounced the case hydropho
bia. The sight of water threw the child
into convulsions, and chloral and mor
phine were powerless to produce ease
or quiet. His sufferings were terrible
to witness. He lingered until Thurs
day in.great agony, and died.
The dog that bit the child exhibited
no signs of being mad. It belonged on
the place, and the child was playing
with it when bitten. The dog was not
killed until about a week before the

Rust in Wheat.
Mr. Carr Vance reports that wheat
in the Jalapa section has rust. That
fine field on- Mrs. Sallie Kinard's place,
opposite her residence, is nearly ruined.
Mr. James Reeder reports his wheat
very badly injured by rust. Mr. H. D).
Boozer, of the Smyrna section, says hae
knows of no yuse ip his section i but that
some wheat betweena his place and town
appears to have rust. Mr. 4. B. Mills,
who lives seven miles below ?rosperity,
says that in his section the lower blades
of the wheat are dying. and have some
what the appearance of rust, but it is
not rust. He thinks it results from cool
weather, and that the wheat is probably
injured thereby to some extent. Mr.
Jno. A. Werts, of Silver Street, says
that he has observed no rust in his sec
tion. Mr. W. W. Waldrop's wheat,
which up to a few days ago looked very
promising, has rust badly, and will
scarcely make seed. We hear that
there is a good deal of rust in tepii
borhood of 'Colony Uhurch. Senatpr

Bridge at Bouknight's.
Newberry has a large trade from that
section of Edgefield County extending f
eight or ten miles beyond -Bouknight's
Ferry, on Saluda river. Nearly every
body in that s -ction brings his cotton
to Newberry and does his trading here;
first, because it is convenient to him c
and, second, because this is a good
place to trade. Our trade from this
section would be larger still were there
a bridge over the Saluda at Bouknight's.
The people are afraid to bring their i
wagons over on the flat. It would pay
the merchants of Newberry to contri
bute liberally to the building of such a
bridge. We hope the County Commis
sioners of Newberry and Edgefield will
unite and build a bridge at this point.
The public convenience demands it.
The right kind of bridge could be I
built at this point with $3,000. Presi
dent McCaughrin authorizes us to say,
that the Columbia & Greenville R. R.,
will give $1,000 towards such a bridge.
Certainly the Counties of Edgefield and
Newberry can each give $1,000.

Dr. Steck is a native of Pennsylvania, e
and is fifty-seven years of age. He

So that the loss to the school fund is
We learn from the Comptroller-Gen-t
eral's office that the Treasurer had paid
to the State $16,000. The taxable pro-.
perty of the County is $4,011,455; State
tax of 5 per cent. on that would be
$20,057.27. Making proper deductione
for commissions, nulla bona, overpay
ment last year, &c., amount to (about)
$600, and adding to this the check for
$892.77 on the Bank payable to the
State Treasurer, gives (about) $1,500.
This added to $16,000 gives $17,500
paid to the State; which Jeaveastill due
to the State $2,557.27.
The total loss to the ordinary County
fund, as reported by the H.ERAw last I
week, is $1,771.99.

The above estimate does not include
the mixed fund of $8,226.76* which was
paid over to the Treasurer in 1877 by1
order of Court, from the Jesse C. Smith I
fund. This added to the other - makes
the total default $8,799.52.t
Some Cood Ones. .
A party was gathered together in I
Newberry Monday, and . after talking -
awhile on general, subjects they drifted<
into the usual channel of. "remarkable
oecurrences." Mr. Doug. Burton toldt
of a gourd vine that grew on Sandy
Ron several years ago that bore fifteen
hundred gourds. The man who owned
the vine had the gourds counted by
some of the most reliable men of the
neighborhood, and there were actually
fifteen hundred of them. Several gen
tlemen of the County canp hear testimio,
ny to the fact,
Another gentleman present, deter.
mined not to be oqtdone, told of a won
derful pumpkin vine he .once had, He
said he planted it on very rich ground,
and it spread over several acres. Be
ing asked how many pumpkins he got a
from the vine, he said he didn't get any ;
that the vine grew so fast it wore all
the pumpkins out dragging them around
over the ground.
Mr. Tom Lane said he had an uncle
up in North Carolina that plowed eight
acres in one day. He used a twelve
inch plow and forir borses-two in the3
rnorning and twvo inthe afternoon. No
one seemed to doubt it; but a gentle
man present said: "Tom, if I had told
that you wouldn't have believed it,"
Mr. Mont. Williams told of how Sam
Tribble, colored, cleared ten acres of
land in one day. When the sleet came
In January and bent all the pines
down, while everybody else was sitting,
round the fire trying to keep warnm,
Sam took his axe and went out to clear
a piece of pine land. The trees being
bent over by the w"ight of the sleet.
only one slight tap the axe would
bring them down. In a few hours h
bad ten acres cleared.
Tfhe dispussion turning upon the~ best
color tp paint a house, Mr. Ja:cob Sliga
told of 4 meeting of ch4orch offuers for
the purposeof deciding n on a- color
for the' church. After dlscussinig .the
various colors, they decided that's~orne
were too gaudy and that others 'would
fade too soon. Failing to agree Bro
ther A. suggested they paint it a rum
color. He thought this a good color,
because Brother B. had painted his face
with it twenty years ago, and it had
been getting brighter ever since.
