Wednesday, Jan. 31, 1906.
Elsewhere in this issue are
printed the two bills introduced
in the house of representatives
relative to Fairfield's finances.
The one is a joint resolution, pro
viding, for the appointment of a
commisslon for the purpose of
making a thorogugh investigation
of Fairfield's finances in every re
spect. The other is a bill pro
viding for submitting to the qual
ified voters of Fairfield the prop
osition of issuing $40,000 in bonds
for cancelling the present out
standing indebtedness and for
paying all the expenses of the
county in cash.
It is hardly necessary for us to
say that we approve in toto the
bill providing for investigating
all the affairs of the various coun
More than one time in the past
we have called the attention of
the grand jury, the custodians of
the county's interests in every
particular, to the importance of
taking such action and to the ut
ter folly of making just casual ex
aminations of the various offices.
The county is deeply in debt, and
the people have the right to know
how it got in this unfortunate con
dition. Not only have they the
right, but they should know. Un
fortunately a part of the records
have been burned, but from what
still remains it ought to be possi
ble to see somewhat how things
are. These investigations in
other counties have proven very
beneficial in straightening out a
good many irregularities. The
official who has been guilty of no
wrong is not going to be hurt in
the slightest by making the ex
amination just as thorough as is
possible. So let us have the in
vestigation, and that too in no
half-hearted way; and if it be that
things have not been going on
right, let the people know it. TIhe
investigation should be worth all
it will cost in making possible a
better administration of the va
rious offices in the future, even
where the sarre officers are in
As to providing for putting the
county on a cash basis, that is
good business wisdom,-and the
pity of it is that something bus
iness-like along this line has not
been done before. There is wis
dom in providing not only enough
to pay what is due, but also in
making it possible for the county
to pay all its obligations as they
become due. The one defect that
sugests itself to us in connection
with the bill is that there is not
enough definiteness as to the
manner of holding the election.
The bill provides that the ques
tion of issuing the bonds shall
be submitted to the qudlified vot
ers of Fairfield county on August
28, 1906, by the board of county
comnmissioners. Of course, if the
election is held on that day, which
will be the time of the holding of
the first primary, there will have
to be different sets of managers
and in several instances the poll
ing places will be different; for,
if we understand it, this election
would have to be conducted just
as any general election. By whom
are these managers to be ap
pointed? By the county com
missioners or by the commission
ers of state and county elections?
These are questions that are go
ing to be asked by those who
purchase the bonds and the best
time is to answer them now. Let
every provision he made before
hand against the election's being
a farce. Fairfield's delegation
will win the thanks of the voters
of the county' which they repre
sent, if they will put this matter
in good legal and business shape.
Get matters straight now, so that
the people of the county may sny
at the polls that they are in for
paying the county's indebtedness
and running on a cash basis in the
future. And surely they cannot

Corrections in List as Published Last
Mr. Editor-With much feeling c
I read the list of old gray-haired 1i
veterans now living in our county, I
which was published in the last i
issue of the News and Herald. In
compliance to your request I will
send you a few names and com- s
mands of old veterans omitted in
your list, hoping that all old vet- i
erans all over the county may re- I
vise your list and send up any i
omissions they may find and let t
us have a full and correct roster
of those old honored heroes of f
the days of the sixties.

A Habit to Be Encouraged.
The mother who has acquired the
habit of keeping on hand a bottle of 1
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, saves
herself a great amount of vneasiness
and anxiety. Coughs, colds and croup, L
to which children are susceptible'are r
quickly cured by its use. It counter- t
acts any tendeucy of a cold to result in I
pneumonia, and if given as soon as the r
first symptoms of croup appear, it will r
prevent the attack. This remedy con- e
tains nothing injurious and mothers f
give it to little ones with a feeling of I
perfect security. Sold by Obear Drug

LOVE IN JAPAN.
t Ir Very Different From That
Whieh Warms the Western Heart.
The boys and girls, the young men
wnd young women of Japan do love
each other, I suppose, but one never
sees the slightest shadow of evidence
to prove It. The spirit of love does not
dominate the national life as it does
In America and the countries of Eu
rope. Japar.'s poets do not sing of
love; her sto::y writers tell no tales of
love that can thrill an Anglo-Saxon
heart, and her artists paint no pictures
f love that can reach the Anglo-Saxon
understanding. Now, considering all
this, how can there be such a thing as
"a good old summer time" in this land
of sunrise? And yet there is, and it is
especially delightful in its way, too,
because the Japanese are a nation of
feasters and picnickers, of nature lov
ers and world beautifiers, and if one
can only lose sight of the fact that
everywhere one goes the poor little
women toddle meekly along behind the
men, who stalk pompously ahead as
If they owned the earth, one may al
most enjoy oneself.
One never sees a woman caressed in
Japan, not Even with a glance; one
seldom sees a baby fondled-in fact,
all human tenderness or expression of
human tenderness Is conspicuous by its
absence, and I believe that Is the one
Impassable great gulf that Is fixed be
tween us and this people. And yet the
people are happy, with a simple, sweet
happiness that is eharming. That is
Lt. It is an atmosphere that mildly
charms, but never thrills, the western

In yamato damashi, Japan spirit, pa

comprehension, because it is empty of
romance and unsatisfactory to us, who

women and brave men" even upon the

Sir Conan Doyle once told a story of
an English officer who was badly
wounded in South Africa, and the mili
tary surgeon had to shave off that por
tion of his brain which protruded from
his skull. The officer got well, and
later on In London the surgeon asked
whether he knew that a portion of his
brain was in a glass bottle In a labora
tory. "Oh, that does not matter now,"
replied the soldier; "I've got a per
