TE NEWS AND gggALD CHANGES t
Fox a little over eleven years I have
been editor of TE NEWS DHERALD
and I feel as though I was parting tb
with an old friend In retirig from I
the active control of the editorial
column. For two or three years I
have felt the impossibility of devoting
to the work the time it deserved on
acconut of my law practice, and after t
this lijue I surrender the editorial Uf t
well as the businesc management of t
the papeir to Mr. J. Frank Fooshe, C
who bi *leased my interest. Mr.
Fooshe is active, energetic and entbu
siastic, and devoting his time exclu
sively ti journali-m I ftel sure that
TgE Nuws AxD HiERA will be mucb
improved under his management.
W. D. DoU@LAsS.
The above from the retiring Editor
explains the change that has baen made
in the editori'l and business manage
meat of TiE NEwS AND HERALD. As
sociated with me will be Mr. Jas. Q
Davis who has at various times been
identified with the paper. In assuming
entire control of the paper we bespeak
the patronage of subscribers and ad
vertisers throughout the county, whose
iuttrests we shall ever endeavor to
serve. J. FRANKFoosfE.
TZr NEWS AN HERALD will now be
published as an ,ll-home-print semi
weekly paper paper. Both the Ti
Weekly and the Weekly will be dis
continued The s3me paper will be
issued to both town and county sub
scribers. Tuesday and Friday will be
the days of mailing.
This change is made with a view to
giving better service to all subscribers.
While our sentiment appeals to us to
continue the Tri-Weekly, which has
been a welcome visitor to many homes
Img town for a period of fifty-six yeara,
wre believe that is in the line of pro.

The subscribers of the Weekly, we
are sure, will he pleased withf.he
change as they will now ge~t two
papers a week instead of one and this
without a cent of additional cost.
The all-home-print feature will enable
us to have more space for county news
and will also make it possible for us to
give fresher general news.
Our advertisers should be the most
pleased with the change. The number
of copies circulated per week with no
change In the present subscription list
will be increased fully 3 per cent.
There will also be an additional gain
to them in the display of their ads, as
having the control of all the space we
can always place alljadvertising matter
nearer the reading matter. Thie, as
all advertisers know, increases the
possibilities of the sdvertisemenlt being
read, or in other words increa'es the
value of the advertising space.
All in all, we believe that both sub
scribers and advertisers will be pleased
with our effort to give an all-home
print semi-weekly at the low price ol
one dollar and fifty cents per year.
We hope for an expression of their ap
preciation in increased patronage in
the way of subscriptions and adver

loss. Her burn was a very severe one
and she suffered very intensely from t
the very start, but during the time she
did and said many things we can never
forget. Quite a number of times dar
ing her suffering she would tell the
family and attendants all to hush and
let her say her prayers, Naew I lay

each time, she invoked the blessings of
God uron "papa, mama, sister and

And I feel under many obligations es
pecially to tbe white citizens who have
known no color in this matter, but
have worked as hard as if it had been

this may serve to show my people the
good of trying to become good .citi
