living at J. L. Towns', in Lexingto
County, was dangeronsly, sick. 0
the 18th I started on horseback to se

I have been sick, sick all over, and
for so many weeks, that I am weaken

re Home chicken does net agree with me,
h and when I am able, I go to the home
k of a country cousin and try the bird
d there. There is quite a difference as
.to where it is eaten-no doubt - theI
e knowledge that the home chicken costs
20 ets., and the country chicken is
not bought at all, has some thing to do
with it. I think so. I went to cousin
Sim Brown's house last Thursday. and
e. was told that he lived seven miles from
n the-Court House, on the Joe Caldwell
at road. but found the distance eight and
it a half. Seven miles from town ! How
is many of my cousins are just seven
s. miles off, north, south, east and west,
in Prosperity, Jalapa, Beth Eden, Silver
e Street, all seven miles ; and each place
it filled with cousins, and my horse is so
,o accustomed to the seven mile trot, that
is it is diffieult to get him farther. The
e extra mile and a half to Cousin Sims
ie was more than that highly educated
yf animal bargained for, and I had to talk
is to him in tones both loud and deep to
ie convince him that some people lived
-s farther off than others. Horses are
intelligent. The distance was made
however, and the house found at eleven
O'clock, off fromthe road about a quar
et ter of a mile. It is a large, substan
e tial, comfortable and c'onvenient house,
r. and it is full of young Browns, but
S-why it was built so far from the road,
ir puzzles me. It was built afterthe war
re and perhaps recessed to be free from
t road tramps, and night lodging hun
ters. Be that as it may it stood invit
1. iugly prominent to my view.
t-Cousin Sim is d good fellow. intelli
d gent, and a good farmer, but like most
n others following the same profession,
is now realizing how difficult it is .to
t. make corn and cotton without rain.
te Poor follows all, I sympathize with
y- them deeply, and bid them keep a stiff
if upper lip, and tight breeches. Surely
d a better time is coming. I saw some
d patches of corn which looked well.
h Tom Chalmers, Carter Wilson, Antine
Buzhardt and others on that road seem
to be living. While waiting for dinner,
I asked our cousin if he knew how our
tf town Mollohon derived its cognomen.
Le he answered that there was no cog
t about it, but that four men-Messrs.
's Henry, Nathan and Jack Whitmire,
e and Edward McMorris, all four hail
p: ing from the country Mollohon, came
n to town, settled, and having money
e enough, bought the block, or the land
n on which the block once stood, and
ee named it Mollokon, in hofor of the
a place they' came from. Well, from
1- whence the name of the original Mol
e lohon. Scratching his head, cousin'
. Sim said; it was so named after an
i old and eccentric woman, whose name
was MOLL, who lived in that settlement,
e and whose chief pleasure it was to sit
.r and lie about in the festive sunshine
r amid the rocks. In the neighborhood
, of Mr. Joe Caldwell's there is now a
e huge rock, bearing the name of "Moll's
,r rock," from the fact that it was one
of her trysting places. So much for
Mollohon, and now for dinner. It was
a good dinner, a country dinner, there
f- was no pate defoi gras, nor yet birds

but there were other condiments. bet
>f ter and-more to my taste.
- Late in the afternoon I beat a re
d treat for home, and the horse realizing
- that eight and a half miles lay between
him and his oats made the trip better
. than that - of the morning. On the
y way, a little girl in front of a farm
p. house was asked if her mother had any
k butter for sale,. "no" said she, "but
d aunt Sallie has some." "Where does
aunt Sallie live ?" "In Gainsville,
n Ga.," was the reply. I suppose Aunt
. Sallie had written to her mother, and
e among other items of news had im
y parted the intelligence of having but
t ter for sale. It was then about six
i o'clock, the sun heavy and ready to
dip behind the western hills, and I
r thought it best not to go in search of
e aunt Sallie and her butter in Gains
r flle, Ga., but to get home, which I
. did, feeling much better than when I
d The Tabor Picnic.
Last Thursday morning we set out
in company with a brotherquill-driver,
to the school exhibition and pienic at
Tabor church. We were driving, or
attempting to drive, a mule-we had
been more successful at driving the
quill. .The Mule demurred to the pro
ceedings, and the demurrer was sus
'tained, without argument. - January
was promptly exchanged for a horse.
ra A late start was followed by a late ar
e rival, and when we reached Tabor the
exhibition was over, dinner had been
y eaten,-and the table cleared. We were
o not too late, however, for dinner;, and
s~ from what was left, we are disposed to
r think that what was eaten was smp
s tuqus,
s The school at this place has been
, under the charge of the Rev. J. K.
a Efird. The morning exercises, which
o we were so unfortunate as to miss,
. consisted of the sping of extracts
Sby the boys and girls of the school,
a and;a valedictory essay by Miss Maggie
a Monts. Those who witnessed the ex
s hibition, and who were capable of
judging of its merits, bestowed the
u highest praise upon Mr. Efird and
a his school. The children seemed satis
li-fed with the manner in which they
had acquitted themselves, and their
e parents looked equally happy and con
e tented.
r We were pleased to learn that the
Tabor school does not depend upon the
public school fund for support; but
that it guarantees a stated salary, and
deducts from the tuition any sums that
may accrue from the public fund. This
- accounts, in great measure, for the
success of the.school.
In the afternoon the crowd reassem
bled in the church, completely filling
it. A piece of organ music was played
in good time by two little children, a
vboy and a girl, of Mr. Sam. Sligh of
SFlorida, after which addresses were
g delivered by the following gentlemen,
who were pleasantly introduced by the
e Rev. J. A. Sligh: Jacob L. Bowers,
a Henry Counts, M. M. Kinard. Ge.o. G.
. Sale, and Geo. ~B. Cromer. It had
d never been our pleasure to hear the
s three first speakers in public, but in
a our judgment their speeches on this
e occasion, were highly creditable to
a themselves as well as to their training.
e The exercises were interspersed with
a music, Miss Carrie Sease performing'
y on the organ.
L. We left Newberry in the dust, but
e in many places on the way, we splashed
d through mud and water, a heavy rain
a having fallen the preceding'afternoonl.
e The crops aloftg the roadY from New
4 berry to Tabor are much injured by
I the long-continued drouth, but they
a are a greatdeal better than the aver

the people of Newberry, and we hope
that the patronage of the school will
be prompt and liberal.
The interview between Gen. Mana
gault and the colored drummer at the
inspection last week, created a furor of
excitement among the spectators.
Being held in secret caucus between
the General, Capt. Sehumpert and
Lieut. Brown, of course the unwashed
knew nothing of what transpired.
The County fair is coming on space,
and every possible inducement should
be offered to bring a large crowd. We
suggest that a competitive drill be
tween the Palmetto Volunteers, of
Prosperity. and the Newberry Rifles
would be a very interesting feature.
We are sure that Newberry and Pros
perity would "turn out" to witness it

The News and Courier says "The
town of Newberry has nowa thoroughly
organized fire department, with a cis
tern in the center of the town capable
of holding 6,500,000 gallons of water."
Our contemporary is eyidently anxious
to make a seaport town of Newberry ;
but it might knock off a gallon or two,
and still leave enough water to float
our navy !

Sept. 11, 1883.
Five young laies left here yesterday
for the seminary at Hagerstown, Md.
There was a considerableerowd at the
depot to see them off. The girls were
lively and jolly, but some of the' boys
wore rather long-looking faces after
the train left.
150) bales of new cotton have been
shipped from Prosperity up to<date.
Our High School is' moving along;
finely-the prospects were never brigh

Newberry, Sept. 11th, 1883.
I heard a powerful and able sermon
In'the Methodist Church,- Sunday eve
ning last, by that able Divine, the Rev.
R. D. Smart-his subject was taken
from 119tlr Psalm, 9th verse, which
reads: "Wherewith shall a young man
cleanse his way, by taking heed thereto
according to thy word."
He divided his subject into five great
evils that youth and young men are
iable to get into ; the two last evils
were drunikenness and gambling. His
picture of dram-drinking and drunken
ness was awful to listen to, any young
man who heard that sermon, will cer
tainly never enter into a drinking sa
loon, or become a drunkard. But, he
said the worst of all the vices that
youth, and young men were liable to,
was gambling. He pictured the gam
bler as being the lowest and most de
raded on earth; he said gamblers
would sneak about, hunt holes to hide
themselves; he stated,while in Charles
ton, a reporter interviewed one of
te leading gamblers of Charleston
he stated to the reporter that there
were ten gambling dens in Charleston
open on Sunday, to each church in the
ity. The reporter asked the gambler
where they were kept. The answer
was; every where in the city. Hotels
private houses,drinkingsaloonis,billiarA
rooms, regular gamimg rooms-there
ar:52 churches in Charieston. Now ac
ording to that ambler's report, there
are 520 gabig places in Charles
ton in ful blast every Sunday. The
able divine said, that according to the
gambling dens in Charleston it must
be desperate in large cities, like Chii
cage, Baltimore, Washington,Philadel
phia and New York. He stated that
gamblers do not gamble for money
alone, but for the bread of life, flour,
rorn, bacon, cotton, sugar, coffee. rice,
[olasses, shoes. leather, every thing
or any thing, that they can get a game
fle also gave an awful picture of the
infidel. He stated on one occasion
while in Washington walking on one
of the public streets, he saw a fine
Looking picture in a store window, he
stopped and looked at it, and he found
it was the picture of Bob Ingersol, the
movinig spirit of infidelity, where
thousan,ds of people were passing every
day, all' stopping and looking at this
ifidel's picture.
I will not follow up this divine in
his able sermon, for he speaks very
rapidly, and says a great many words in
30 minutes, only in closing his applica
ion of his sermon to young men at
was grand, and at times very eloquent,
as appeal to youth and young me to
keep away from all .these vi es,
leanse his way, wander not from thel
commandments, and walk in the lawj
f the Lord.
The Methodists should be proud of.
having such an able man to preach to
them. I have no doubt they are. Not
only Methodists, but the community in:
our city should be proud to have such a
man'lving amng.them. J.
