Mrs. Kate Carwile. the wife of our honor.
ed and beloved townsman, Mr. Jno. B. Car
wife, died somewhat unexpectedly on Satur
day morning, at half past one o'clock, at her
home in this town, and was buried in Rose
mont Cemetery late Sunday afternoon. Mr,.
Carwile was a native oi North Carolina, an.t,
being left an orphan in very early life. wa=
reared as a member of the family of the el
der Dr. Brantly, father of Dr. Jno. J. Brant
ly, who was so long the pastor of the Bap
tist Church here. In the circle of that ele
gant, Christian home, she imbibed the spirit
of refinement and profound piety which
adorned and ennobled her life. She was nat
urally gentle, amiable and benevolent, and a
life of great bodily suffering and sore afflic
tion tended only to develop and beautify
the graces of her character. Her patient
and heroic endurance was the admiration of
all who :'ew her. For the greater part of
her life sao was - member of the Baptist
Church, and fo- . her chief pleasure in at
tendance upon the house of God, and in con
tributing of her sympathy, her prayers and
her means, to the needy and suffering around
her, and to general benevolent and mission
ai enterprises. She will be sadly missed in
her home, in her church, and in the entire
community. But she rests :-like a weary
child, worn out with the pains and woes of
life, she sleeps upon the bosom of her Father
Charles D. Wright, son of Mr. W. T.
Wright, died yesterday morning. He had
been a patient sufferer for a long time.
The friends of -Mr. W. T. Wright
and family are invited to attend. the
funeral of his son, Charles D. Wright,
this (Thursday) afternoon. Service at
the Baptist Church at half past four
o'clock, and burial at Rosemont Cem
etery at half past five.
Good Shooting.
Messrs. Bowman, Kelly and Thoma
son tried their skill with the rifie on
Tuesday afternoon, at a nickel, and hit
it 48 times out of 90.

Thoughts for Reflection.
At 35 years of age you can carry
$5,000 insurance on your life for $35.00
-per year after the 1st year. Come and
see the plan. C. C. CHASE,

We didn't go to do It.
Our very lively friend The Drtwsner
accuses us of using two of its articles
without credit. Now we did no such
thing, the articles alluded to were
copied from another paper, and were
not credited. That is the how, Mr.
Work given out. On receipt of your
address we will make an offer by which
you can earn $3-to $7 evenings, at your
home. Men, women, boys or girls can
do it. H. C. WILKINSON & Co., 195

*One Hundred Cents.
Messrs. Zimmerman & Johns, Drug
mists of Westminster, S. C., in their
$tst order purchased only the dollar
size of Norman's Neutralizing Cordial.
Those who try the 25 cents size always
buy the large size next time, thtus its
use is advertising its merits daily.
A Sensible Man.
* Josh Billings says he never takes
auy foolish chances. When he looks
at ia dead mule he stands in front of
him. Norman's Neutralizing Cordial
is neith~er a live or a dead mule but a
real nice family horse always ready for
your service. Mothers, we advise you
not to take any foolish risks, but al
ways keep a bottle convenient, and it
will save you many hours of anxiety.
To Disabled Soldiers.
The Comptroller General Mr. WV.
E. Stoney, requests us to inform all
soldiers who have unpaid claims for ar
tificial limbs, that they will be paid at
the very earliest possible period, and
that notice wvill be given from his of
fice, as soon as there are funds in the
Treasury for that putrpose. Parties
holding claims are adlvised to deal di
rectly iwith the Comptroller in their
settlements, and not wvith agents.
Strawberry Festival.
The strawberry festival for the bene
fit of the College will be held in the
Temperance Hall, to-morrow (Friday)
evening. Contributions should be sent
to the Hall on Friday. The conmmittee
found it impossible to visit everybody,
but they will gladly receive contribut
tions from those who were not visited.
Everybody is invited, and requested to
come hungry. The objeet in viewv is a
good one, and we are confident that
the festival will be a success.
We like to strike the dlear people,
but not with hard blows to hurt them,
but in an easy, pleasant manner. and
not in the way that Billy Patterson
was struck. It strikes us therefore that
the very striking card of Messrs. Tal
bott & Sons, of Charlotte, N. C., and
Columbia, S. C.. will strike the atten
tion of every man in want of the arti
cles they keep for sale. Read their
* card and you will see that they offer
Portable and Stationary Engines aiid
Boiers, Saw and Corn Mills. Cotton
Gins and Presses, and that at ev-ery
Fair where they have exhibited pre
minms have been awarded them.
The Newberry Steam Mills are closed
after Sautrday, for two weeks, under
going repairs. it.
The Eye and Ear
Are important factors of the body.
and there are many who suffer untold
troubles from imperfect sight and hear
ing. Not a few of these persons may
be restored by skillful treatment, but
they lack the opportunity ; no surgeon
is convenient who makes a specialty of
these cases. We are happy to say to
all such that Dr. Andrew Wallace of
Greenville, a successful practitioner,
will visit Newberry shortly, and will
thus afford the opportunity desired.
A Cattle Farm.
We learn that Brown & Moseley, of
Prosperity, have begun a cattle farm
about two miles from that town, with
the view of furnishing good beef for
market. They also contemplate im
proving their scrub stock by crossing
it with the Jersey. so as to be able to
furnish rich milk and butter. The
enterprise deserves success, and pro
perly managed will succeed. New
berry offers a ready market-and a
cattle farm in this county ought to
prove a paying investment. -
Children's Day.
Saturday, the 19th of May, will be
Children's Day, at Tranquil church,
and a large attendance is hoped for
not only from the town but the sur
rounding country. The Rev. A. A.
Gilbert, the pastor, extends a cordial
invitation to one and all.
Saturday last was Children's Day at
Hopewell, and we are pleased to say it
proved quite a success. Addresses
were delivered by Revs. Colton and
Wood, of Clinton, and Dr. E. T. Mc
Swain, Mr. W. W. Summer, and Mr.
Geo. Speake. A missionary collection
was taken up.
Town Elections.
The Town Council at their meeting
last Saturday night, received a number
of applications for the positions at their
disposal. J. S. Fair and J. W. Gary
applied for the office of Clerk and
Treasurer, and the latter was elected.
After serving about two hours, he re
signed and 3'r. Fair was re-elected.
Mr. Fair has made a good officer, and
he was endorsed by the citizens' meet
ing that nominated the present Council.
The applicants for Chief of Police,
were Henry T. Fellers and John H.
Chappell-the former was elected.
The following persons were elected
policemen: J. M. Sill, T. M. Chapman,
D. Q. Wilson and R. W. Davis. The
other applicants were J. H. Todd, J.
H. Means, and W. J. Leonard. In Mr.
Chappell, the Council loses an efficient
Mr. W. T. Jackson was re-elected
Street Overseer.
Children's Day.
-There was a crowd at Ebenezer last
Saturday, made up of two classes, in
the words of Dr. Carlisle, "those who
are children. and those who once were
children." The day was perfect-the
committee on arrangements could not
have ordered a more suitable day to be
spent in the woods, if that matter had
been left to their wisdom. The (lay
was occupied from about 11 o'clock till
1 o'clock, with singing and addresses
one by Dr. Carlisle, on "Thought and
Thinking," which, by.the way. was re
markably thoughtful and interesting;
and one by Dr. Darby, on the general
subject of Sunday School work. After
partaking of a sumptuous dinner, the
children were turned loose and left to
enjoy themselves as best they might.
They enjoyed the occasion as only chil
dreni could ; but towards evening, the
time began to drag somewvhat heavily.
The only objection to the day was that
there was too much of it. But the
children wvill be anxious and ready for
the next Children's Day.
Colored Teachers' Association.
The Teachers met at the Hoge School
house, Saturday, May 5, for the pur
pose of effecting an organization to be
known a's the "Teachers Association
of Newberry County."
After temporary organization, Mr.
B. W. Nance moved, that the meeting
resolve itself into permanent organiza
tion. The motion was agreed to, and
the following officers were nominated
and elected: P. W. Dawkins, Presi
dent ; J. S. Stewart, Vice President ;
A. E. Hampton, Secretary; G. W.
Guignard, Assistant Secretary; T. W.
Stewart, Treasurer; and J. B. Arnold,
On motion of B. W. Nance, a comn

report its proceedings at the next meet
in"' of this Association.
hefollowing. are the committee : B.
W. Nance, F. L. ix, B. F. Means, J.
S. Stewart, C. W. Whitmire.
On motion of B. W. Nance, resolved,
that when this Association adjourns,
that it will adjourn to meet on the see
odn Saturday in June, 1883. And that a
copy of the proceedhings of this meet
ing~ be forwarded to the Newberry HER
ALD and the Ob.serrer.

Messrs. Editors:-Will you try to
persuade our neighbors that there is
no wild woman at large ? It is putting
some of our acquaintances to a great
deal of inconvenience; our Trial Justice
has the scare,-he now goes to Martin's
Depot to take the train when he wants
to go to Newvberry, (so they say.)
We promise to see that no one com
ing to the Lawn Party, the 18thi, shall
be molested; so come along everybody
and see the sights.
This Lawn Party is getting to be a
tremendous aTYair; it looks as if the
laies are preparing for another
National Centennial. We men want
to plant cotton, but are kept busy
putting up posts, tables, seats, &c.,
and they will not tell what the poll is
for. Some of the young men think
they will climb it-the one making the
best time to be allowed to crown the
queen of love an '1 beauty ; so if the
18th does not soon come they wvill not
ma:ke a crop, as they take up all their
time practicing climbing. It can no
longer be said ladies can't keel) a
secret ; all they tell us is to come and
bring our pocket-books-not empty

A number of gentlemen in town
speak of organzinmg a society for furn
ishing a series of free lectures on
history, biography, literature and kin
(red subjects. Our people need ini
formation on such subjects, anmd we
should be glad to see the society or
ganized. Trhose who have no taste
andl little opportunity for reading,
would avail themselves of an op
portunity to learn tv- hearing interest
ing lect~ures; and a course of public
lectures would be of great benefit to
our citizens.

Dr. Jas. Carlisle lectured at Ebene

were heard with close attention by
large audiences. Dr. Carlisle has the
happy faculty of being able to give
new and striking thoughts, and to pre

dress. His audiences are always im

Dwelling House Burned-Loss $3,000.
Mr. W. H. Dickert's house, on Moor
man St., occupied by Mr. D. M. Dickert
and wife, was destroyed by fire on the
night of the 3rd, between two and
three o'clock. No one was sleeping in
it at the time, Mrs. Dickert being at
Chappell's on a visit, and Mr. D. at
his father's, near Helena. When the
fire was first seen, the roof was falling
in, and nothing was saved from the
house. The value of the house was
about $2,000 ; and Mr. Dickert says
that $1,000 would not more than cover
the loss in furniture, jewelry, cash,
wearing apparel, &c.
The building was insured for $1,00C
with Boozer - Son, Agts. of the Liv
erpool and London and Globe, Co.,
and $500 with Mower & Jones, in the
Georgia Home. The Liverpool and
London and Globe, Boozer & Son,
agents, had $325 insurance on furni
ture, and $75 on organ. The Star Co.,
N. Y., same agents, had $150 on wear
ing apparel. Mr. Dickert is satisfied
that the house was set on fire, the prob
ability being that it was first robbed.
He says that he left it on the afternoon
before the fire, at 5 o'clock ; and that,
before leaving. he examined the stove,
the only place in which there had been
fire during the day, and the fire had
gone out.
