Winnsboro n e e d s, especially
when it is coupled with gettin
rid of Lhat most abominable olc
eye-.or-, the county jail. But
soaxta seem to think that it oughi
to be built by private parties.
Certainly that would be the very
thing, if it were anywhere withix
the range of possibilities. But
it is not, and, if the town has tc

it will be some years yet before

only way to have the hall is for

Judge George E. Prince has a mighty
poor opinion of a white man who will
gamble with a negro. Judge Prince's
sentiments will be endorsed by every
self-respecting white man and by every
self-respecting negro. Negroes do not
respect a white man who puts himself
on their level, and it is always the low
white men who cause the conflicts be
tween the races.-Anderson Mail.
And from an instance in point
right here in Winnsboro, it would
appear that there are a great
many other people who look at
this matter in the same way as
does his Honor. A few weeks
ago Sheriff Hood hauled in a
party of' eleven gamblers. Six
of these were white and five were
negroes. All five of the negroes
were out on bail within a few
days after their arrest. So far
only one of the whites has been
released. Of course the negroes
were taken out by white men,
who have them under a contract
that is no doubt drawn so that
it would not make it advisable
for them to try to get away. Why
could not the white men get some
one to go their bond on the same
condition? Surely it can not be
that they prefer prison life to
work, however unpleasant it may
be. The trouble is simply this:
when white men sink to so low a
level, they lose the confidence of
their follow-man and are not to
be trusted under any circum
stances. The white man that
prefers gambling with negroes to
honest work is a "goner," and
(when caught in such gaming can
only hope to spend his days in
jail till the eourts can pass upon
his case. His negro associate
may fail back upon the hope that
some white man will take care of'
him by providing him with work,
but the white man can not have
the hope that any of his fellow
cit'zens will risk their money on
his appearance in court with or
without the pledge of iworking it

It Is Dangerous to Neglect a Cold,
How otten do we hear it remarked:
"It's only a cold," and a few days
lat er learn that the man is on his back
with pneumonia. This is of such
common occurrence that a cold, how
ever slight, should not be disregarded.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy counter
acts any tendency of a cold to result in
penumnonia, and has gained its great
popularity and extensive sale by its
prompt curse of this most common
ailment. It always cures and is
pleasant to take. For sale by Obear
Drug Co. and all medicine dealers.
Prize for a Town Map.
The News and Herald is always
interested in the study of local
history and geography. We
believe that boys and girls should
be taught a little about the his
tory and geography of their
county and town as well as of
that of distant lands and the
isles of the sea. It not infre
quently happens that the pupils
of a school do not even know the
names of the streets of the town
in which they live. Every
school boy and school girl should
not only know the names of the
streets, but should also be able
to draw a map of their town.
We want to see that the pupils
of Mt. Zion are given this drill in
local geography and to this end
we are going to offer a prize for
the best map of the town made
by any -pupil of this historic
school. The prize will be a
year's subscription to t h e
Youths' Companion or anything
else of equivalent value that the
superintendent may select. The
prize will be awarded on the
closing day of the school to the
pupil, whose map has been ad
judged the best by a committee
selected for this purpose. It
will be open to all the grades and
it is to be hoped that the teachers
will make use of this offer to
stimulate an interest in the
pupils in this very necessary
dletail of their education. There
should be some good maps of the
town of Winnsboro to be ex
Libited on the closing day as the
esult of this small prize, which
s offered not so much for its t
ntrinsic value as for the purpose (
