THEY LOVED CHILDREN.
Great Writers Who Won the Hearts
of the Youngsters.
It is one of the must lovable traits
in many of our greatest men that they
are as skilliul in wining the hearts ui
little children as in captivating the
minds of their parents.
Even Sam Johnson ielaxed his
grimness into smiles of pleasure when
Boswell's baby daughter held out her
arms to him and pulled his hair when
he was not sufficiently attentive to
Byron, whose own child life had
been so saddened and imbittered by a
loveless mother, worshiped his little
daughter Ada with all his passionate
soul, and history has no sweeter pic
ture than that of Southey singing his
child to sleep as he paced the floor
with his "littie burden of love" in his
Lamb's great heart had many a
warm corner for his child friends-all
the heart, in fact, that his sister Mary
did not fill-and when he took his
daily walk through Edmonton it was
the signal for all the little children
to flock to him for a kiss, a kind word.
or. better than all, to take his hands
or coat tils and accompany him on
It is little wonder that Charles Dick
ens, "the great hearted one," was idol
ized by the little ones; for there nev
er was a nore entertaining compan
ion or one who could better "make
himself a child again" for their de
light. There are many staid men and
women of today who recall with
pleasure and regret the romps they
used to have with "Boz" in the fam
ous nursery at Gadshil.
Among great men of later days Mr.
Lewis Carroll must be counted "king
of the children's hearts." That soli
tary, lovable "mixture of a man." who
was wedded to mathematics and to
children, had few pleasures apart from
one or the other. His study at Christ
church was a perpetual nursery, its
corners and cupboards stuffed with
toys and sweets and all that appeals
to a child's heart, and here or on a
river picnic, surrounded by swarms
of his young friends, the mathematical
professor was always a boy. as full
of fun and as ripe for mischief as the
youngest of his guests. May his rest
be sweet, this chief of children's lov
Oliver Wendell Holmes, most amia
ble of "autocrats," was a lifelong lov
er of children and could "skip back
seventy years" at a moment's notice
at a moment's notice at a child's bid
ding. Could anything be sweeter
than the letter he wrote acknowledg
ing the photograph of one of his lit
tie girl friends? "May those lips," he
wrote, "speak what is pure and true;
may those ears hear but what is good,
and may those eyes always mirror a
soul as beautiful as themselves."

Black Diamond, the colored train
porter ior the Argyle. is muchiy im
pressed in the hostilities and opera
tions in the Far East. He approach
ed Recruiting Officer Johnston re
cently and asked a few questions as
to the people engaged in the conflict.
"Say Mr. Johnston, what sort of peo
pe are the Japs and Rusians any
how?" He was told that they were
people classified as and looked upon
just about like Americans are regard
ed by the Orientals and Cossacks. "I
know" persisted piamond, but shore
ly they ain't like us at all: they must
be sorter half waa.'-vilized, and I al
ways thought they lived in huts and
cots and were not exactly what they
ought to be." He was assured that
human nature was pretty much the
same the world over. Diamond then
went off to ponder over the matter;
he takes a live interest in all national
and international affairs, and is v'ery
proud of his education and his family,
which he asserts is one of the very
oldest of Newberry County.

New York Wholesale Prices
Until March the First.
When I closed out my Dry Goods business here four -years ago, I had a great
many of my friends to tell me that they regretted very much that I was going
3ut of business, because I had given them better values than they had ever;
found anywhere, and they would miss Yne now when they had anything to buy,
because they always found everything just as represented, and of the best values.
I appreciated this, and it gives me pleasure to say, that in resuming business
again that I begin with greater advantages than I ever enjoyed. I have bought
the entire stock of
Clothing, Shoes, Hats, and Furnishing Goods of
The Ewart-Pifer Co.,
at a great bargain, and as I desire to give up the Clothing, and to change many
Df the lines, turning the store, in a short tirie, into an up-to-date
Men's Furnishing Goods, Hat and Shoe Store.
I will close out the entire stock in the store, beginning to-day, at the marked
prices which are in plain figures, less 25 per cent. a clear saving to you of 33 1-3
per cent. over what you have been paying, as 25 per cent. off is 33 1-3 per cent.
on. This is a great opportunity for you to supply yourself and family for the
present, and for the spring and summer at
3 Mi r Wcor3m. '3bL.o3LeBsaLe4 3Pricews,
for there is not an item that you could buy during this sale at wholesale in New York
for less than you will buy here in any quantity you want. To illustrate: Take a Hat
or a pair of Shoes that is marked Three Dollars $3.00, they cost at least $2.25 at
the factor. 25 per cent. makes them cost you $2.25 and you save the freight
or express. A.is is the greatest bargain sale of 1904, and I want all of my
friends in the city and county to get the benefit of it, and learn the way to our
store where they may always feel sure they will find the best stock and the
lowest prices in Newberry. Country merchants will find it will pay them to fill
in from our stock during this closing out sale. I would like to close out the
Clothing in bulk, which I will do at a sacrifice to any one desiring it. Mr. WM.
F. Ewartof The Ewart-Pifer Co., will have charge of the business and act as
my manager. Everything SPOT CASH on delivery. No memorandums made.
