AN I-PERTINENT SIIAVER.
In the IIEnALD of May 2d, ap
peared a rather caustic notice of
Mr. Smith, the singing master.
That paragraph called forth two let.
ters in vindication of Mr. Smith,
one from the gentleman himself
and the other from one of his pu
pils in Newberry. both of which
were just. timely. and inl good
In the Obse'rr of la -'th, "S,
whose big heart was grieved at the
III:mL's injustice and inhospital
ity, uttered a -production" in which
lhe used this language
"An inoffensive little squib of
'S.'s' in regard to Prof. M. C.
Smith, who was so recently with
us. seems to have stirred and raked
the bottom of Lake Camarina. in
exciting the ire of a -steamed' con
temporary against the unoffending
lProfessor. The result has bcen two
or three sharp attacks upon lProf.
Smith and the Methodist choir.
"Althouyh our worthy contempo
rary of the IIEI-Am evidently mis
construed us, we trust no one else
will do so.
--\ir. Smith's name has appeared
in -S's.' columns on several (liTe
rent occasions, andt although some
who did not know us might have im
agined from our slalsided manner
of complimenting him and our
demi-seli-idiotic notices of his en
tertaiments that we were ridiculing
the gentleman's character and abil
ity, such was not the case."
In the IIEIALD of the following
week "S." was noticed in this para
graplh, which was fully warranted
by his own utterances, and which
contains nothing that one rentle
man might not freely say in speak
ing of another:
- "', of the Obs,rc,'r, says that
the several notices of Mr. Smith,
the singing master, which app-ared
in his columns were not intended
to cast ridicule upon that gentle
man, as was too generally sup
posed, but were really and truly,
genuine, unrecognizable, 'slab-sided'
In reply, ""S" avers that he -'said
nothing of the sort,' but accuses
"the gentleman of the IiEi..i)" of
being a dllard, and of having mis
The IIEnALD would have paid no
attention to "S's" defense of' Mr.
Smith. but for these two reasons:
1. "S.'' assumed that the II-L.)
was trying to imitate him, in its
strictures on Mr. Smith.
2. And, while he knew that his
notices of Mr. Smith had been con
strued as intended to ridicule that
gentleman, he resorted to the sub
terfuge of saying that this was a
misconstriction and that the Herald
was respons ble for it.
What right had '-S." to assume
that his "squib" called forth from
the HEmmALD an attack upon the
M1ethodist choir, or Mr. Smith ?
Trhere is not a single word in the
H EI.\LD) which justifies this assump
tion. imitation admits inferiority;
and, while we hope that we are
sufficiently modest in the estimate
we place upo:n ourselves, we are
not willing to be regarded as imni
tators of "S." or any other insolent
What right had "S." to assume
that the "lIlEn' oi had evidently mis
construed" him ? There was not
a syllable in the IIERD ~I which in
dicated that 'S's.' manner of' treat
ing Sir. Smith had been con
strued in any way whatever; and
if -'S."' has had nothing to do with
the Methodist choir. how did his
"squib" cause the lii-:n.Lu> to imiake
an -attack uplon choir' ?
If "-S.'' had im: isa frank attack
uplonl tl hlIIn.ru - remarks about
31r. Smith. or ha~ I muade a simple,
straight-forward e xplanation of his
own p)ositionl with reference to that
gentleman, we should have passed
his article without a word. And if hle
had assaulted us for the puirpose' of
displayinig the remarkable brillian
cy of bis intellectual weapons, andl
had done so) in a mnanly way we
should not l.ave protested. We
are not dlisposed to criticise any
one who wishes to couch a free
lance against the ll EnA.1). po
vided that he do so honestlyv and
While "."5' was ostmnsibly (de
fending Mr. Snmithi. lie was really
indulging in covert flingzs at the
IlEnA .1). We despise dodging and
skulking and double-dealing. When
the IIEn.:Amm has offended any- one
without just cause, it has the good
sense to see its error and thme good
taste to make amends for it-as it
has (lone in thme case of Mr. Smith. It
is not our custom to say what we
please about persons and places.
until we are broughit to account, and1
then skulk from jus-t resp)onsibility
by saying that our remarks were
only "witticisms.'' The IIEn~.m
said nothing aboumt the manner in
which "'S's." notices~ had been con
strucd. but he found out in some
way that they hand been construed
as ridicule. TIhe HIn.w said
nothing about "5'.;." Williamston
notes, but thev were construed
in an unfavor.thle light both here
and at Williamston. In each case
lie is rescued by a wonderful in
genuity which. in thme hmour of need,
p)ronounces his oliensive remarks
-'witticisms, onlyv witticisms."' When
we speak of a man it requires no
labored explanation to inform himi
whether we intended a complimnent
or a "witticism.''
We agree with "S." that lhe is
not expected to furnish sufficient
brain to enable his readers to see
through his '-witticisms" or to ap
p)reciate his 'prodiuctins."' Every
hody knows that if "S." were re
Iquired to do this, lie would be comn
peCl!ed to go oumt of the nlewspaper
business withouit dlelav.
Thme lIu.tio is not disposed to
be unkind to any body. This
shave is a omparative stranger
in Newberry. and we do not wish to
injure him-if he had gone on set
ting his type and writing his three
columns a week for the Obserrer,
without dipping his pen offensively
into other people's business, we
should have left him to himself
and others. If he aspires to the
high position of censor and curator
of public morals in Newberry, we
dlo not object. unless his private
character gives the lie to his public
professions. We wer. here when
he canie, and we expect to be here
when he has gone. We suspect
that he will not favor us with his
presence many years-he is rapidly,
very rapidly, outgrowing the town
of Newberry, and his own develop
ment must force him to leave. We
regret this, for he is the recognized
champion of moral ideas in our
hwn. Let it not be said when he
is gone. th:t he was insolent with.

Why is it that in the town and
ountry of Newberry, there is not
greater love for books, good
books we mean. Surely it is not
because of any lack of books, or
hat the cost is too great. No such
hiing. It is because the people
iave not been educated up to this
point. They do not see the ne
3essity of reading and acquiring the
nformation which books afford,
more the pity. A book seller prop
er would starve if he depended ex
rlusively on his sale of books.
Even so too, is it with newspapers.
In Newberry, in fact in the South,
the people are not a reading people
and not one in twenty who can read,
takes a newspaper, and the conse
rjuence is that they are in the dark
as respects the common, every-day
occurences which engross the com
munity and the world. Not so is it at
the North, for there almost every
man woman and child reads one or
more,some as many as a dozen news
papers. By this means they keep up)
with the politics of the country and
ev-ery other top)ic floating around.
Take New York for instance-cast
your eye over a street car, it is full
of people, cosmopolites and citi
zens. arnd every one of them has his
face closely buised in a l)pper
reading for bare life. May be one
of the reasons why it is not the case
in Newberry is that we have no
street cars. Let our city fathers
run a line of horse cars from the
depot to the Fair grounds and let
us see if the papers will be more
appreciated. This is one of the
things we should like to see.
