Build more homes. They are
sorely needed. Winusboro has
suffered more from the want of
homes than for any other reason.
The rent of property here for sev
eral sears past has been entirely
too cheap, so much so as to pre
vent those with means from in
vesting in houses to rent a n d
others from attemptingito own
their own homes. Make an effort
to own your own home. Pro
perty is cheap here comparatively.
and there will never be a better
time for building your own home
than now. So build your own
home if possible. if you can not
build a home, at least buy a lot
so you can look forward to own
ing it later. The owning of real
estate in your home town will
make you a better citizen.
Go it on the cash basis as far
as possible. The closer compe
tition in all lines of business
make smaller profits necessary.
It is not possible for mercLants
to sell for a cash basis on lorrg
time. Pay the cash. If you can
uot do this, than arrange it so
that th merchant can realize
cash for the goods sold. If you
can not pay the cash and can
make no satisfactory arrange
meuts for your merchant to get
the cash, then the way is per
fectly clear for you to do without.
Wiunsboro has been run on the
credit basis too long.
Finally let all pull together for
the upbuilding of the town. It
union there is strength. With
all pulling together 1907 will
witness some decided progress
in Winnsboro. So mote it be.
It is jat as easy for communi
ties to get into bad habits as it is
for individuals. The habits o i
lQoking at all busines enterprises
however successful elsewhere, as
necessaiily failures here is one of
the habits that Winnsboro has
fallen into. In the bAgining of
our new:spaper career here six
vears ago we were told that,
though advertising paid in other
comnmunties, Winnsboro washso
ditlerent from other places that
it did not pay here. After about
two or three years experience we
had almost reached the concloxsion
that may be the merchants;.
who made this plea knew sotne
thing Tbout what they were talk
ing about. So we made a set to
for the purpose of seeing whether
they were right in practice or- we
wrong in our theory about th~e
use of printers' ink being a trade
getter. Fortunately we struck
upon two or three advertisements
just at this time that were s o
direct the merchants saw that
there was no mastake about it
that thay had been enefitted
thereby. So they,kept on adv. r
tising and others seeing that they
were sticking to it tried the ex
periment and they have been
sticking too. The result has been
most satisfactory and from a
paper carrying fewer adver tise
ments perhiaps than any other in
the whole state TIhe News and
Herald now has an advertising
patrounage scarcely second to that
of any other we.ekly in South
Carolna: So in impressing the
lesson that it does pay to ad
vertise Thbe News and Herald has
rend e! ed good'service in demon.

printers ink is th:e very best in

make. If a,y one looks upon his
advei Vi:g money as an expense
e is l'adly mistaken. It is all
ight in making your plans for the
new year to cut down every need
less expense, but let no merch
ant make the sad mistake o f

promises such sure returns as

individuals should make new year
resoltions and what is more

Make some permanent munici

proposed to pave the streets.
Surely -othing is more needed
than this.: Good streets are the
biggest advertisement that any
town can. have. The paving of the
treets is easily possible. So let
the people of WiDnsborO deter
mine to have their streets paved
and the work can' be done.

The keeping.of the places of'
business and of the homes -in a
good condition is a decided
advantage to any fown. It is
avery citizen's duty and privilege
to make his premises -appear to

Seek to bring some new enter
prises to town. They are needed
and can be had. The time is iipe
for small --manufacturing enter
prises. Just .wh4t is beet to un

Look fully into this proposition
and if it is not the thing, then let
something else be tried.
At least let one new manufact

the year 1907.
