LEAVE THE "FICES"
Mr. Editor: We have heard so many 1
favorable comments on the improved
appearance of our streets since our '
citizens have been required to keep 1
their dog3 at home, that we would
suggest the propriety of council in
strutting the police to attend to their
arduous duties unattended by their
"little fices." Observer.
By allowing the accumulations in
the bowels to remain, tbe entire system
is poisoned. DeWitt's Little
Early Eisers regulate the bowels.
Try them and you will always use
them. McMaster Co.

COMMITTEE OFPOTATO BUGS
A prominent young lawyer expressed
x.' surprise upon seeing a pestiferous
potato bug promenading main street a

a month ago tegular committees of

on the streets almost any day, going
from store to store getting the names

Possibly it is the Lancaster bug that
is in Winnsboro now. if it was about
a month ago he appeared on the
streets there. The town council
l might pass an ordinance requiring the
L-t police to arrest them.
REV T TV MELLICHAMP DEAD
Rev. T. W. Mellichamp died while
ron a visit to Rev. E. A. McDowell,
near Alston, on Saturday. Mr. Mellichamp
was born in Charleston in 1817,
rand had been a Baptist minister for
, nearly sixty years. His ancestors
were French Huguenots. For a number
of years he was pastor of the
Baptist Church &t this place. A good
and pious man, his long life has been a
most useful one.
His remains were taken to Ridgeway
on Sunday for burial.

WORKS? v
Some gentlemen have requested the
reporter of The News and Herald to E
say something through the -paper
about water works. For several years,
this question bobs up now and then. B
No great improvement ever comes in a
moment, and while it is by no means
settled that Winnsboro will soon have *
water works, yet that the peoplo are a
thinking about it is a good sign. Of b
course, if water works are placed here, p

them. We shall be glad to publish c

INVESTMENT VS. EXPENSE.
Mr. Editor: I notice in your issue of
this morning a mention of water
work*, for the town. It is eminently
proper to nave the matter discussed;
others should join you and tne discussion
should not end till they are
completed. But with your permission,
I should like fco change the word
"expense" in the phrase, "at the expense
01 the taxpayers" to investment.
The succe?1 "t every such undertaking
depend.- u on whi-ttier people consider
it the one or ihe other. As long as
they look at it as an expense, it w a
dead issue; as soon as they consider it
an investment, it takes on life and bex
lienor rfiftlilv. Snr.h an enter
pri?e r*">'elyand wholly au investment;
i. s as free from the element
of ex. - as any other investment.
If a to .vn issues $40,000 in bonds for
a plan! for water works and electric '
lights, it is an investment and a most
paying one It differs from an investment
in factory stock or bonds in that
its dividends always come indirectly,
but they come no less sorely and on
an ever io creasing scale. Many of
the interior towns of this State?some
no larger than this?have made similar
investments and have pronounced
them a success. Winnsboro would
do well to imitate their example; the
matter is well worthy of immediate
consideration.
Very well do I remember when the
ground was first broken tor the water
works of Spartanburg. It was at the
beginning of that city's rapidly increasing
prosperity. A few days
after, a twelve-year-old boy, at the
house where I was boarding, came in
from school and with unbounded joy
announced the fact that Spartanburg
was to have a great female col lege.
The wa*er works were completed;
Converse College came; factories followed;
and the Spartanburg town of
3,500 ton years ago is to-day a small
city- of more than 10,000 and with
UnPo'iAeo AVk/3 * r\ f rtl tl O 1 ftotltrifr
uuoiutjao auu avuiiv;
than any tc?,wn in the State. I imagine
the Winasboro lads at the certain announcement
of water works and electric
lights would give unheard-of expressions
of delight and patriotism in
these regions. Let the boys have a
chance. J. Frank Fooshe.

UPPEIX LOXGTOWN BREVITIES.
The community was greatly saddened
by the death of Mrs. David
Robertson, which occured at her home
in lowfi* Longtown on Monday. The
deceased h id been in declining health
for seme lime. Death, however, came
almost wholly unexpected. Heart
failure was the immediate cause of her
death. Tiie funeral services were
held a? the Ridgeway Baptist Church
of which the deceafed was a consistent
member. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. J. L. Freeman.
The remains were carried to
Columo-a for interment. Mrs. Robertson
was & most estimable Christian
lady?one who will be greatly missed
' by her friends. The deceased leaves
besides her husband a daughter, Mrs.
' C. P. V,7ray, of Ridgeway, to mourn
heHoss. We extend onr sympathies
to the bereaved one3, and point them
to onr Heavenly Father wh:> doeth all I
things well and who is able (o wipe j
away all tears from our eyes,
We had a splendid rain last Satur- I
day night, which was highly beneficial t
to the growing crops. Corn planted j
in March is looking well; there is some
complaint of defective stands. Cotton
is Pi^mincr nn rirvlv since the recent
rain; the acreage is somewhat smaller
than last year. Small grain is not
doing so well; haven't had dnfficient
rain for it. Gardens are looking nicely;
plenty of tnrnips, lettuce, radifh'.s, |
onions, etc., ready for table use.
The fruit crop -will be smaller than j
we expected. We noticed that most
of it has already fallen off the trees;
especially is this the case with cherries
and piums. We suppose that we will J c

The woman who is lovely in face,
form and temper will always have
friends, but one who wonld be attrac- ?
tive must keep her health. If she is "
weak, sickly and all rnn down, she ?
will be nervous and irritable. If she At
had constipation or kidney trouble,
her impure blood will canse pimples, ^
blotches, skin eruptions and a wretched
complexion. Electric Bitters is the 3
best medicine in the world to regulate
stomach, liver and kidneys and to
purify the blood. It gives strong
nerves, bright eyes, smootn, yeiveiy jl
