Clemson expelled three students
last week for taking part in hez
ing. A right step in the directi"n
of putting a stop to this unfor
tunate practice. But why should
the namas of those expilled be
withheld,- especially when there
is such a large number, who have
had to return home for failure to
meet the entrance requirements?
With the continuous arrival
of goods and the more general
scattering of papers and litter on
the streets, ir-cident to the in
creased fall business, the Civic
League can find much to do in
the way of keeping the town
beautiful. However, if the town
officials only appreciated how
valuable an asset it was to a town
to have it kept in a proper condi
tion, the ladies would have little
to do in these matters and could
give their time and attention to
providing permanent improve
The season for the setting out
" of fruit trees is rapidly approah
ing. Put in your orders now for
a few trees each of diffrerent
varieties of different f r u- i t s.
Even if you will not go into fruit
raising for market, at least have
fruit for your family. Fruit is
something that is always enjoyed
and is exceedingly wholesome.
Besides there is nothing that
adds so much to make a home,
especially one in the country look
thoroughly homelike, and these
kinds of appea:ances tell too in
fixing the value of a home.
A few years ago at a farmers'
institute in this county after a
discussion of various insects and
how to get rid of them by one of
the Clemson professors, some one
in the crowd asked the learned
man how to get rid of bed bugs.
That question was not considered
in order then. But it is the
question at Clemson now, and
after the college gets rid of these
pests, which are giving it so much
free and very undesirable adver
tising, perhaps the answer will be
forthcoming. In the meantimer
let it be borne in mind that clean
liness is next to godliness.
The call eslewhere for t hi e
observance of Saturday, Sept. 29,
as a work day for the orphanages
of South Carolina emphasizes
how dependent these institutions
are upon the charities of the peo
ple at large and affords the op
portunity for a saying a good
word for the great work they are
doing for making better citizens.
There in no greater misfortune
that can befall a boy or girl than
to be bereft of father and mother
and to be without means of sup
port or friends and relatives to
help care for them. So what ai
bhkssing it is to such to have a
horne where they can be taken
and have every safeguard thrown
around them that will contribute
to keeping them in the right paths
and to giving them a right pre
paration for the duties of life.
There is no money spent in thisi
or other states that brings in<
richer returns than that spent in I
saving these. children to t h e
church and the state. Remem-<
the orphanages next Saturday and I
give them as liberally of yottr<
earnings for that day as you can.
It will be money that will do I
others good and you will feel good I
for having helped on so good a'
When Bryan was in Columbia ~
on a former visit to that city, wo ~
* were greatly diseppointed in not ~
being permitted to hear him after ~
having made every arrangement I
to do so. Better fortune was I
ours last week and we count it a e
* great privilege to have heard the
* Great Commoner who stands to
the very front as a private citizen
in America. M~r. Bryan is a
forcible speaker, holding the very d
closest attention of his hearers 0
from the beginning to the end.
He is of powerful personal magn-e
tism and his hearers are drawn ,j
to him. His honesty in express- it
ing his views makes a very posi- e
tive appeal to you, ihowever
much you may disagree with him.
His hits at the Republican party h
are well directed and in giving se
his time most largley to the tariff Iti
and to the trusts he is sounding I
the battle cry of the democratie er
party in the next presidential H
campaign, for upon these two
great issues that campaign is to
be very largely waged. His f
views upon the government owner
ship of railroad he gives wholly
as a private citize n and as in no or
way committing his party, and s
he is finding a good many Demo- jsL.
crats to disagree with him. Af ter)
hang him nn on can ail e
mderstand wh? there is such a
3ryan wa;e sweeping o V 1e r
he whole country.
The Columbia Record in com- t
nenting on a paragraph in these -
olumns last week in regard to:
he Fairfield delegation bring solid c
or the dispensary calls it "an ex- i
libition of bad temper" that "may
be pardonable in view of the fact,
that the News and Herald is the
:nly paper in Fairfield county and
the county did not vote to suit
it." Even, if Fairfield's vote in ]
the first primary did not suit us
in that a dispensary delegatiou'
was elected, the county's coming
around all right in the second
primary was indeed very refresh
ing. No doubt this complete
change in the county's vote is the
occasion of the heated and rash
charge that this papec would
vent its feelings ou the defeat of
a measure or against an individ
ual on the ground that it has a
little monopoly. However, the
Record's intimate acquaintance
with monopolies should enable it
to speak with authority. It en
joys the distinction of being the
only daily in South Carolina that
has stood pa? for maintaining the
G. M. I., the 'greatest pr al
monopoly in this section and one:
that uses its machinery for crush
ing free political thought with
far more greed than does a n v
financial trust in putting the
lesser concerns out of business.
MR. K. R. rIctIASTER
Elected President Winnsboro Com
mercial Club--Steps for Improve
ments at Both Depots.
At a meeting of the Winnsboro
Commercial Club Tuesday even
ing Mr. K. R. McMaster w a s
elected president to succeed L. T.
Baker, whose resignation on ac
count of his moving to another
town was accepted with regrets.
Mr. McMaster had been the
first vice-president of the Club
since its organization in April*
and has been one of the most
active member in helping to get
the Club thoroughly organized.
Mr. McMaster is one of the young
men of Winnsboro who has con
tinued to remain here and is
thoroughly identified with every
movement for the upbuilding of
his home town. He will fill the
position crediatbly and the good
work of the Club will be pushedi
under his direction.
Mr. E. C. Gwaltney was elested
1st vice-president and Mr. J. M.
Jennings 2nd vice-president, Mr.
C. F. Elliott was chosen to fill:
the vacancy on the board oi
Another very important thing:
determined at this same meeting
was in regard to the lack''of
soveninces at the passenger depot
and sufficient side-tracking at the ~
freigh depot. For several months
bhe Club has been endeavorinc?
to get something accomplished1
in this direction through Mr.
Williams, the superintendent of
this division. Having failed in
bhis it was decided to take the
:natter up with the railroad corn
nission in the hope that Winn
boro will get these needed irn
:>rovements. .The Club hasse
~bout getting these improvements
tnd will not hold up on the same
i they are had.
