Let's Make The State Richer.
In an article published el!ewhere in
this paper. the Cohlmbia State. rc
ferring to the recent discussion by the
Newberry newspapers of the feasi
bility of reducing expenses of the
state government. savs that *as a
matter of fact. the expenditures by
South Carolina legislatures are coi-,
parativly small. True. this is not a
rich state but we are by no means
the poorest people in the uni,n. anid
two corporate interests- -raraus
and cotton nillz-pay ine-i ourth uf.
the burden of state taxati(ii. It mar
be granted for the sake , ar
gument that too Inuch is paid for
pensions and that the appr,,priations
for state institutions of higher learn
ing are too large. but then the comi-:
mon schools and the public highways
are improperly maintained and public!
otficials inadequately paid." All of
which is very true. The State makes
the -oint that instead of trying to
make reductions in appropriations for
'the sake of reduction that we seek to
increa.e the prosperity and the assets
of the state. This isthe right spirit
and the right viewpoint. South Caro-i
lina affairs should be conducted on
the same basis as the affairs of a
private individual. The money she
expends should be made to prove a
good investment. But instead of
seeking to practice a hurtful econ
omy, if South Carolina is now too
poor to meet the obligations which
she ought to meet, let ts get togeth
er and make her richer.
In the last issue of the ierakW and
News there appeared one of the most
interesting of the very interesting let
ters writtn by Judge J. M. Crosson,
from Woodville. Texas, on "The
Newberry of the Days That Are
Past." The letter was not only en
joyed by those who themselves re
called many of the incidents relatedl
in Judge Crosson's graphic descrip
tion of the salesday in old Newberry
and of the court house and court and
the "greatly. good" lawyers of those
days, but it was read with intense in
terest by those of a later generation
as well. The Herald and News and
its thousands of readers unite in the'
hope that Judge Crosson may live
many years yet and that his days
may be happy. And they will look
forward with eagerness to the next
letter which he has promisd and to
the, next and to the next.
The state reunion of Confederate
veterans will be held in Charleston
the latter part of May. This is a good
place to hold the reunion. There are
many places of historic interest in
this old city, and then it is always
pleasant as do the citizens of Char

Only seven schools in the county
have as yet taken steps to avail them
selv'es of the recent legislation to en

that five more- schools have raised
the necessary amount by private sub
scription to sectire the advantages
offered by the act.
