The protracted meeting of the Meth
odest church closed Sunday ight. The
services were all well attended, and
much good accomplished.
The preachers have decided not to
elose the churches as stated last Stn

will be preaching at the Baptist church
Sunday night.
The closing exercises of the Female
Academy will be next Thursday night

and one in the calisthenics drill.

3MEssus. EDITOnZs:- A whiriwind
visited No. 4 Township last Thurs
day. between eleven and twelve o'
clock, it strzeck Lewis Gaskins a
hand of Henr.y Arthur's, while he
was working in the field, and lifted
him some distance in the air, first
his feet were toward the ground
thenu his head. but luckily he caught
hold of a btush. Then ca~me IIenry
Arthur's time, it upset him and
carried him u~p a little ways, too,
and while he was up in the air he
cried out to the rest of the boys in
the field to get him his hat. andl not
let it get away. Wa~rren Arthur
wa~s present when this took place,
but soon took his leave. when he
saw what going on. Lewis said "I
wouldn't ter cared so much but I'se
gwine ter marry Saddy, an' I weald

What We See, and What We Would
Like To See.
"By the Old One."
We would like to see a more gen
eral taking to the hot water regimen
of which very much has been said
of late. Although our learned doc
tors "pooh. pooh" at the idea. we
believe it to be good, that the nan
or woman who drinks a cup full of
hot water a half hour. or an hour be
fore meals. if at all dispeptic, will
receive benefit. Taken at that
time it acts as a scourer or cleans
ser of the stomach and prepares it
for the food which soon will follow.
The "old one", who recommends its
use, will take it from this present
There is a science even in the
way of borrowing. Every one does
not know how to approach a man
of whom a dollar is hoped to be
torrowed. You may perhaps have
read of -'Jeremv )iddlers'' eftert
to inveigle a shillin' from the pocket
of Sam. the waiter at an Inn. If so
you know how signally he failed.
Sam," said the D)idler in his
most insinuating tones. --Samn,
have you got a shillin:'' f'es,
sir," said Sam putting his fingers
in his vest pocket, and suiting the
action to the word, '-I means to
keep um, sir,' as he drew his fin
gers out again. This is one way,
but it is an unsuccessful oa'e. The
better way is to approach a man
when he is surrounded by friends,
and ask him for the loan of a dollar
for a few minutes or a day. The
chances are that he will not refuse
you, he would not have the courage
to do so. We give this advice to
those who are forced through impe
cuniosity to "raise the wind' by
borrowing. but the best plan in
our opinion is not to borrow at all.

One of the things we like to see
is the large interest shown in thell En
ALD by Dots from the various Pros.
perity correspondents. two weeks
ago. This is right and eminently
prop)er. Build up your town and local.
ities by telling the people who you
are, and what you are, and what you
have got. IIiding your light under
a bushel never yet brought anything
to light, or resulted in any good.
We should like to hear from Poma
ria, from Smoky Town, from Beth
Eden. from Whitmnire's., from Lib
erty Hall, from Boston, a little
more from Jalapa, and in short
from every part of the County. It
would do good, it would wake tile
peop)le up. The IIERALD shall be
sent free to every man or woman
who sends us a communication at
least once a month or oftener.
It was our good fortune and great
pleasure to meet a lady the other
dlay, who we think the equal if not
time super:or to the one mentioned
in the HlEntu, a month or two ago
as having a tin foot-tub which had
been in use for 25 years. She
was wearing the bonnet she had
worn for' nearly the same number
of years. Well. this most estimable
lady says that not a pound of lard
has entered her house in fifteen
years. What think you of that
good lady readers? Is it not re
markable? and vet it is a true bill.
we know a number of others who
would not use time vile grease under
any consideration. Thiis lady uses
butter; and the fat of beef stewed
down. She does not use mutton or
kid grease, but beef fat, and she
says that the oldest and the poor
est butter can be made good and
sweet by boiling out the implIurities
Is this not a secret worth knowing
and preserving. Too much lard.
and too much hog meat are used in
the land, and when their use is dis
continued the health of our people
will improve, and doctor's bills will
be lessened in size. We will be a
happier as well as healthier people.
--Talking of old shoes" said the
doctor, as he bit off the end of one
the rep)orter's cigars, -'they come
handy in various ways. Old boots
and shoes are made into Jamaica
rums also into the richest of jellies.
Not only are old shoes utilized but
cast-off linen is used to make coffee
and sugar."
"-All these years, while you have
imagined that you were sipping
coffee from Brazil arnd rum from the
West Indies, you have simply been
drinkin~g casteff shoes and worn
out linen."
-'Go to "
"Fact: The jelly spoken of is
made by boiling an old boot and
shoe in soda, under a pressure of
aboutdtwo atmospheres. The ta.nnic
aId in leftthk ombinedi with alt
makes tannate of soda, the gelatinc
rising to the top. From this, witt
suitable flavoring material, the
jelly is readily made.
'The shirt coffee is made fron
old shirt linen, and sweetened with
cuff and collar sugar. both coffee
and sugar being made in the same
way. The linen. after being wash
ee. is treated with nitric acid
which, acting on the lignite Con
tained in the fiber. produces glu
cose or grape sugar. This, wher
roasted. makes an excellent coffee
and is sweetened with unroasted
"Then you would have one be
lieve that he may have been drink
ing coffee made from the shirts of
his hated rival; may have spread his
despised mother in-law's old shoes
on his breakfast toast, and quaffed
rum made from the brogans of a
tramp ?
The mind of this writer is at ease
now, for we know what becomes of
the old shoes and the soiled and
worn out linen. Shades of the
much abused mothers-in-law you
can rest in peace now, for a (-cu) of
coffee infused from your cast ofi
uppers, if the sole is gone, will give
delicious rest and peace to the
souls of your tradneers. The thought
is too utterly bevond.
Speaking of' mothers-in law in
duces us to say a word in their behalf.
Taken on the whole there is ne
class which is shown less justice.
They are abused without cause.
Young husbands have reason to bless
the day and the wife who gives you
an intelligent, wise and experienced
mother-in-law. for are they not wo
men, and are not women the salt of
the earth.?
We want to see the Unievele in
troduced into our skating rink. It
is a set of wheels about eighteen
inches in diameter. the feet of the
operator being fixed into theni at
the centre. The movement is grace

We imagine it easier to propel one's
self on the Unicycle than on skates.

Thoughtlessly, and entirely
without intention to wound the feel
ings of Professor Smith we para
graphed a notice of this gentlemen
some time since. It was intended
as a piece of fun, but unfortunately
proved too serious. We learned
the lesson many years ago that fun
to one is death to another, and we
regret that on this occasion the
lesson was forgotten. We will en
deavor to bear it in mind in the fu
ture. We disclaim any hard or un
kind feelings to the Professor, and
most humbly ask him to forgive us,
under the promise to do so no more.
Let him rep)eat his visit to Newberry
and get up another class, and im
p)art that instruction which our
young peop)le stand so much in
need of'. In his reply which up

The Commencement Exercises
of the Prosperity High School be
gan last Sunday night. by a sermon
by Rev. J. E. Bushnell, in Grace
church, to the Students of the
school. There was a very large
congregation out, and more than
one hundred of the pupils in atten
dance; they occupied the middle
row of pews. It was a beautiful
sight to witness so many youthful
faces, turned towards the minister
eager to hear what he would say,
that would interest them. The
1lev. gentleman took an appropri
ate text from Daniel and drew out
a lesson that the children of to day
should learn from some of the capt
ive Jewish youths, and we hope
this lesson will make a lasting im
pression upon the youth fti ijearers,
and be the means of stimulating
them to make usefa! men and
womeli, wvherever they shall be in

viction strengthened that we have a

boys reading and spelling, then a
large class in mathematics, and
then a still higher class talking

stars, moon and the sun. Now a
good deal of this was just a huckle
