What About that Public
Some weeks ago a number ol
ladies of the Better Winnsborc
Club became interested in a public
library for Winnsbcro and SomE
steps were taken looking to the
establishment of such an institu
tion in Winnsboro. Mrs. K. R.
McMaster took the matter ur
with the Carnegie Library (e
partment and obtained informa
tion as to what and how aid could
be secured from that source but
since that time the matter seems
to have been dropped and we sus
pect the reason for this lull is that
the ladies did not get the support
in this undertaking from the busi
ness men of the town that the.
deserved'or must have in order
to establish a library here in
Winnsboro. We have not heard
any of them say that this was
the case but we venture the asser
tion that if the business men of
Winnsboro will give the support
that they should that the ladies
will do their part. And, may we
ask, why this lack of suppor.t?
It is certainly a deserving and
important institution and one
that should be established here.
Our business men need to awake
as to the importance of these
things if we ever expect to have
sneh a town as we should all like
to see and have. We suggest
now to the ladies that they visit
each man in the town and get his
ideas as to what he favors along
thi3 line and then they will have
something tangible to work on.
We must not let the matter drop
where it is.
At the meeting Monday night
some were inclined to criticise
somebody for allowing the carni
val gamblers to load and ship on
Sunday. They should be allowed
to get out on the first traIn
always and -svith an injunction
that we will not tolerate them
again. If we cannot have an
agricultural fair without the as
sistance of this class of people
we had better suspend. The fair
authorities thought that they
were getting some innocent
amusement for those who attend
ed the fair but they were simfply
picked up and will be next tIme
they undertake to secure amuse
Y:enit from this class of people.
An amusement committee should
be appointed before the next fair
and let this committee arrange a
schedule of amusements gotten
ur by home ppople and children.
Thi1s can be done and nobody
will be fleeced by gamblei's.

After Four Years of Discouraging

Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky.-In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, I could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pains
in my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat
ment relieved me for a while, but I was
soon confined to my bed again. After
that, nothing seemed to do me any good.
