Wednesday, Jan. '. 1906.
The general assembly will con
-ene next Tuesday. The most
mportant matter of legislation
;hat will come before this body
will be the dispensary. The action
:>f the State's legislators in regard
to this vital question will be
watched with the keenest interest.
There is one new year reeolu
tion for every man and woman
and child of Winnsboro, that
ought to be formed so strongly
that nothing will break it-and
that is to stop joining with out
siders in running down Winns
boro. If all will stand pat on
this one resolve, there will not be
anybody calling this a dead town
Winnsboro still gets it in the
neck when it comes to the heating
and lighting and cleaning of its
depot. No other town in the
State of the same size fares so
badly in these very important
items. A board of trade or some
commercial organization would
have a fine opportunity for doing
good work for this town in bring
ing about reform in these details,
that mean so much to the com
fort of the traveling public.
With an old and well estab
lished bank that enjoys a most
enviable position in financial cir
cles, and with a new bank to open
in a few days under the control of
men of decided business ability
and success, with an unpreceden
ted demand for homes and a
stronger demand for real estate
at advanced prices, and with
practically all her business men
using that greatest of all trade
bringers, printer's ink, Winnsboro
starts the new year under the most
favorable conditions that have
prevailed at any time within the
past forty years. There is life in
the old town yet; and the keen
spirit of competition among her
business men that has been con
tinuously increasing during the
past few months, means that there
is going to be something doing
The News and Herald office is
to be moved into the building
recently purchased for it on
Washington street just opposite
the court house. Everything is
in readiness for the work of re
moving to begin this morning.
The moving of a printing plant is
not an easy matter and it will be
severyl days before everything
will be fixed up, though it is
hoped to have the job depart
ment running again to-morrow.
1t is very probable that next
week's issue of the News and
Herald will be delayed two or
three days on account of this
move, though every effort will be
made to bring it out on time.
On account of getting ready
for this move it has been neces
sary to make many omissions
that would have not otherwise
occurred, and we trust that our
readers and advertisers will bear
with us at this time, for we hope,
when we get in our new quarters,
to be in far better position to
accomodate then in every way.
The book and stationery de
partment of our business has
been discontinued, the same
aving been sold to the Obear
Drug Company, for whom we be.
speak the same liberal patronage
that has been extended to us dur
rig the four years that we have
iandled the same. This feature
.f the business is discontinued
withi nany regrets from more
tmtdpt its than one and is only
snadie tI at we may be able to
.ve our whole attention to the
uewspaper and job department..
The business of the News and
Berald, which has heretofore
been conducted under the' name
> the Winnsboro Printing Comn
pany, will now be run .in the
2ame of the undersigned.

Cotton Mill Accident.
While preparing for startina.
h1.e Fairfield Cotton Mills Mn
lay morning, the 400-horse power
Frick cn.ine was seriously dam
tged. One of the piston plate
Dolts in the cylinder came loose
nd worked out enough to strike
the cylinder head while the engine
was on its center, next to the cyl
inder. The pillow block gave way I
on account of a bad flaw in the,
crank end of the sane. A new
block was at once ordered by long
distance 'phone, and has already
been shipped by express, and the
mill will be again running at fall
capacity in the next few days;
the accident stopped about one
third of the machinery. The
iest of the mill is in operation
now. This was an unavoidable
accident and not the fault of the

Grip Quickly Knocked Out.
"Some weeks ago during the severe
vinter weather, both my wife and my
elf contracted severe colds, which
peedily developed into the worst kind
)e ]a grippe with all its miserable symp
ao' says Mr. J. 8. Egleston, of
2Te Laung, Iowa. "Knees and
nts aching, muscles sore, head
6vthpedu eyes and nose running,
h alteruate spells of chills and fever.
We began using Chamberlain's C'ugh
Remedy, aiding the same with a dose
of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
Tablets, and by its liberal use soon
completely knocked out the grip."
These Tabl~t proiote a healthy ac
tion of the bowels, liver and kidneys,
which is always beneficial when the
system is congested by a cold or attack
