The Civic League would have
a real nice sum to carr. nut their
cherished ideas for eanifying
the city, if they could in any
way effect a return of all the
property in town on a more equit
able basis than is the case in so
many instances at present.
Mr. Ansel has declared his
position on the dispensary, which
is practically the same as the
Morgan bill without the high
license rider that was provided
for Charleston. He would abolish
the state dispensary and
leave it to the counties to decide
between the dispensary and pro
When cotton goes galloping
down as the result of i-creased
acreage and overproduction
and that it will surely do under
these conditions-then there will
be a good many people in this
section, who will wish that they
had given heed to this editoral
farming of cutting down acreagt
ind raidag all home supplies.
Messrs Pittman & Son of
Grenwood have sold the sub
.sriptica list of the News and
Views to their competitors, the
index and the Journal. This
leaves Greenwood with only two
county papers, as many as busi
ness .conditions justify. Messrs
Pittmn will devote their whole
time to their large and growing
job printing business.
The editoral note in these col
umns a few days ago in regard to
the wisdom of the farmers rais
ing their own mules has been
copied in quite a number of South
Carolina papers. What we would
especially like to see would be
the Fairield farmers raising
their own mules and horses,
setting an example to be copied
by other South Carolina farmers.
If there is to be any in
creased acreage, let it be fo
corn, sorghum and other food
crops. There is not much dan
- ger of an overproduction of these
foodstuffs; and if you happen to
have the gqod fortune to raise
more than you will need, there
will be no trouble at all about
disposing of the surplus to your
foolish cottontot neighbors, who
are planting all the cotton they
It is up to the township boards
of assessors and the county board
of equalization to do their full
part in increasing the revenues
of Fairfietd county by seeing
that all property is returned and
that an equitable valuation is
placed on the same. Failure
on their part to do their full
duty only increases the burdens
of those who do make their re
turns~ and doesn't lessen any at
all the county's indebtedness.
It remains yet to be seen
whether the general assembly
acted wisely in reducing the tax
levy one-half mill.. Unless the
increase in the valuation of all
taxable property is sufficient to
oftset the amount raised by the
one-half mill tax and also that
extra appropriation of $100,000,
the State will be deeper in debt
at the end of the year. Boards
of assessors and equalization can,
do much towards justifying the
wisdom of the legislators in re
ducing the state levy.
The farmers of this county are pay
-. ing considerable attention to sheep
raing. One farmer recentiy sold in
the city some ten or fifteen bales of
wool from his own farm, which netted
him a much handsomer profit than if
it had been cotton. He declares that
the wool was nearly all clear profit, fo.1
it cost him much less expense and
trouble than to raise cotton.-Spartan
burg Cor. News and Courier.
And others throughout the
State would be engaged in this
same profitable occupation, if it
were not for the fact that they
have the wool (cotton) so po'lled
over their eyes. It makes them
blind to all other possible devel
opments, animal or vegetable.
The "Woman's Memorial Edi
tion" of The State, published a
few days ago, was a most valna
ble collection of articles of de
cided historical value, telling the
ever interesting story of the won
derful part played by Southern
women in the war. Two of these
valuable contributions are of
special interest here-the one, a
poem by Mrs. W. H. Flenniken,
which is published in this issue,
and the other, an acconnt of how
Mrs. Ladd saved the masonic
jewels by her daughter, Mrs.
K. L. Cureton, of Pickens, which
will find a place in these columns|I

Prevention is better than a
cure. That is the theory upon
which the New Orleans author
ities are acting in regard to yel
low fever; and so they are taking
every precaution even at this
early date for a complete ex
termination of the mosquito in
that section this aummer by
screening and every other method
known for getting rid of this
carrier of this dreaded disease.
This same rule of prevention.
applies with equal force to smal
ler communities and there is need
lor the application of just a little
of it here in Winnsboro. While
this town has not had more
typhoid fever at any time than
other towns of the same size, it is
every probable that some of what
it has had could have been pre
vented, if the proper sanitary
precaution had been taken. It
is none too early in the season
now to take the necessary steps
for guarding against this or other
diseases that are spread through
contamination with water. In
the absence of a sewerage system,
which is the great safeguard to
health in cities where it can be
had, the cart can be used to
wonderful advantage in contri
buting to the healthiness and
cleanliness of a city. The.expense
of conductiong this need not fall
wholly upon the town; a small
charge upon each family will
easily pay all the expenses of
thus safeguarding the community
in this very important matter?
What say tho city fathers to this
proposition for providing better
Here is an instance in point to
show .that there is need for some
legislation, forcing railroads to
provide extra trains under some
circumstances. We had occa
sion to go to Atlanta last week
on a business trip. We left here
Thursday evening, where we were
to take the Seaboard Air Line the
next morning at 1.18. At 11.30
there came a report that the train
was about two hours late, and
about an hour later there came
a second report that the train
would be about seven hours late.
About 8 o'clock Friday morning
there came the order that the
train had been annulled. The
next through train was not due
till 10.30 a. m. The first report
as to this train came at 9 a. in.,
and it was that it was two hours
late. We then took the local,
leaving at 11.30 a. m., with the
expectation that the through
train would overtake us at Green
wood. At that point the report
was that the through train was
nne hours late, and so we had to
go on to Atlanta on the local,
which arrived at 9 p. mn., just
twelve hours later than the first
train was due to arrive. The
cause uf this long delay was the
fact that there had been a wreck
beyond Hamlet. Certainly, with
Swreck of such a serious nature
that it took more than 24 hours
to clear the track, the railroad
oficials could have seen at the
very first that the delay would
have to be for hours and that the
sending out of any such report
that the train was only two hours
late was acting false with the
public. Under such circum
stances they should have been
compelled by law to give correct
information as to the coming of
the trains and should have also
been forced to put on another
train. While the cost of this
extra train would have been con
siderable to them, it would have
been less than the collective ad
ditional expense of the many
travelers, who were thus force~d
to wait so many hours, all the
while expect~ing the coming of a
tain that was already delayed
much longer than reported. The~
traveling public is entitled to
some protection even in cases of

The News and Courier contains
he following note of a Winns
yoro girl, who has achieved fame
ts an artist:
"It was Miss Hanna Rion, in.
lormer days, who was well known
in this State, but the charming
%rtist about whose work The
News and Courier has had some
thing to say in connection with
the present exhibit at the Art
Institute, is now Mrs. L. A. Wil
liams. Miss Rion's maiden name
was not as prominent in the art
world as is her name of to-day.
Mrs. Williams has for some time
exhibited work that has attracted
national attention. Her exhibits
in New York and Boston have
attracted much favorable atten
tion. In Who is Who for 1905-06
it is mentioned that her first pub
lic display of art work was at the
exhibition of the Boston Art
Club, last year.

The rlount Zion Claim;
(R. .M. L., News and Courier, Mar. 16.)
Senator Tillman and Represen
tative Finley, and in fact the
entire South Carolina delegation
in Congress, are interesting them
selves in the passage of an omni
bus claims bill at this session.
Their efforts in this direction are
being made with a view to the
payment of the claim of the
Mount Zion College. This claim
was referred the Court of Claims
several years ago and last fall
judgment was rendered in favor
of the College for $6,000. The
claim was based upon the re
sultant damage to the College
buildings at Winnsboro by t1-3
occupation and use by Federal
troops after the war.
It used to be the rule that
claims of this character were
approyriated for by Congress
separately, but under the present
practice all such cases are pro
vided for in what is known as an
omnibus claim bill. If such a
bill is not passed this session, of
course the claim will have to
stand until Congress makes
provision for it in the passage of
such a bill.
Senator Tillman and Represen
tative Finley had a conference
to-day relative to this matter
and it is their hope that a claims
bill will be passed at this session.
Afflicted Withi Rheumatism.
"I was and am yet afflicted with
rheumatism," says Mr. J. C. Bayne,
editor of the Herald, Addington, In
dian Territory, "but thanks to Cham
berlain's Pamn Balz am able once
more to attend to business. It is the
best of linimants." If troubled with
rheumatism give Pain Balm a trial and
you are cert?.n to be more than pleased
with the prompt relief which it affords.

A note in the Yorkville En

information that Congressmnan
Finley has recently secured an
increase in the pension of Samuel
P. Newman of Fairfield county
from $12 to $20 per month. Mr.
Newman is the only surviving
Mexican veteran now living in
this county. Though ninety years
old, he is still strong and healthy.
Only a few days ago we saw him
while at Ridgeway, he having
come in that day from his home
six miles distant in his usual way

ven infer that the old veteran is
baking on ne w life, for he did that
lay what he has long neglected,

An old veteran, living in theL
northern part of the county, who
has not been in Winnsboro for
more than twenty years, writes us
in a business note that he is
certainly going to be here on
Memorial Day, when the John
Bratton Chapter of tbe Daughters
of Confederacy will bestow
crosses of honor upon every old r
veteran in the county. They are
also going to have other exercieses
that will make the day a memora
ble one and they want all the:old
veterans to feel in advance they I
will be most heartily welcome on
that day. Nothing will be left
undone to make the day one of:
great pleasure to them. It will
be a good time for this old veteran
to come and see the old town
and to meet again many old
friends whom he has probably
not met in a good many days.
