Efforts are being made to secure
another rural delivery ruute from
Newberry. The Herald and News
.1 be glad to see the new route es
tablished and as many more as are
necessary to give every citizen in the
rural districts his mail at his door
every day. If this effort by any
chance, should for the present be un
successful we are assured it will not
in the least jeopardize the service we
now have. If another route should
be established the p..trons of the
present route would have the same
service they now have and those on
the proposed n6w route would also be
served. Then why should any one
Let us all uite and try to get all
the comforts and conveniences for
the people of the rural districts. That
is our platform. We want to see
everybody get all the comfort and
convenience it is possible to have.
One,of the great draw-backs to the
extension of mail delivery in the
country is the condition of our public
highways at certain seasons of the
year. With good roads we could
have many things in the country of
which we are now deprived.
The county campaign will formally
open next Monday at Whitmire. This
is the day we celebrate, and it should
be a pleasant opening. We trust the
campaign may be conducted on a
high plane and that if there are any
issues to be discused that the discus
sions may be of such character as to
give the people who 'hear them in
formation and instruction on the
questions of the day.
Men may differ and differ honestly.
It is well they should, for otherwise
there could be nothing for debate.
And yet they should differ without
being personal or endeavoring to pull
down their opponent and without as
signing or assuming there were im
pure or improper motives. Let there
be a full, and a free, and a fair dis
cussion of :ny questions that may
We notice with pleaure that the
Hartford school advertizes for a
teacher for a nine months' term, with
a salary of S45 per month. This is
a move in the right direction. Better
pay for teachers and longer terms
for the school.

make a queer combination and yet
the political prohibitionists are cap
able of doing queer things.
The state campaign wags along
with very little interest. After
the party leaves the Sixth district and
the congressional fight is not lively
it will be difficult to secure an au

thrown into it.

has retired. He made the editorial
column of the Herald interesting and
readable and we regret his retirement
and will be glad to see him again in
Judge Emory Speer of the United
States court has recently rendered a
decision in which he holds that police
magistrates, or rather the 'mayor or in
tendant of a towvn. has no authority
to sentene to the chain ang. He
holds that there is "no shred of au
thority, either American or English
where a sentence by a police magis

ed or even palliated. Under th<
American system the chain gang ha
no place in the jurisdiction and pro
cedure of police court where trial bi
jury is not a right of the accused."
This is an important decision an(
if it should stand it wmuld materiall3
change matters. brt we have always
understood that a mayor o:- inten
dant in our state had the zame juris
liction as a magistrate an6 in trying
the cases before him was really act
ing as a magistrate and if the accusec
should demand it he had the right t
trial by jury even in the police court
It may be different in Georgia.
It frequently happen; that cases be
r a magistrate are tried by th<
magistrate without a *,ury though th<
accused could have obt-ined jurN
trial had it been demanded.
The Health of the Community.
The Herald and News has at va
rions and sundry times had some
thing to say about the health of the
community and the importance o
the officers and author'ities being
vigilant and taking every precautior
to prevent disease. This has beer
done and said with no spirit of criti
cism. but only in the interest of th<
tpublic weal. We have been criti
cized at times for referring to thes<
things, but that has not deterred thi
newspaper from speaking.
The physicians tell us there is al
ways a local cause for fever. I
that be true it behooves all good citi
zens to be active in their efforts t<
find out the cause and remove it.
We never realize to the fullest th<
importance of this subject until th<
fever comes home to us. Then it i
too late. There is no epidemic o
fever in the community. possibly n<
more cases than may be found iT
other communities of the same size
but there have been several cases
and if there is local cause it shoul<
be our earnest endeavor to find ou
what it is and remove it.
The water ought to be pure if th<
hydrants are properly and frequent,
Is the garba'ge thrown out ir

other places, and we do not knou~
that there is more, but certainly i
there is.local cause for that we hav<
the cause should be removed. Noth
ing so helps a community as the good
health of its citizens.
