Prosperity. S. C.. November 3.-In
our article in Tuesday's paper you
make me say *Ve hope to make it
so convenient for you that you just
can't keep doing business with it.
Now what we said was and we
will italicise it and say. "W1e hope to

The Southern railway sold 245
tickets for Newberry Tuesday morn
ing. The most of them went to
see the dog show.
If a dog show will bring such a
crowd to Newberry what would a
regular three ring circus do?
We were in town Tuesday and the
last we saw of the editor- he. was
hunting the ticket man so that he
could go to the show, much to our
regret we had to come down at i

In the near future we want to write
up some of the older churches in No.
ten township and give a, short sketch
of them and perhaps if data can be
had, to sketch some of the earlier
settlers. ..Who remembers a family
of Wilhelm's that lived at one time
near where Mr. J. B. Kempson now
lives and what became of them. The
old family burying ground is the
only thing left to remind us that such
a family ever lived there, and Parson
Waller (Pastor Wallern). ,Who can
recall some of the many sayings in
reference to this good man. As a
boy I often passed his grave. We
hope to tell you some of this interest
ing history if it can be had.
By the way what has become of
curly headed Johnny and his progres
sive democracy. and say Mr. Editor
what kind of democracy have we any
howv. WVith a defeated candidate run
nling in the general election and
democratic clubs endorsing him. Has
the primary outlived its day, or shall
we purge the system of the abuses
that have crept in. In our humble
opinion if something is not done in
2 years there will be other candidates
offering in the generai election and in
4 years we will not need the primary
as the race will be "free for all." and
Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Quattlebaum

county -and will farm in the lowet
part of the county for the next year.
Mr. anid Mrs. N. B. Wheeler were
in townf Tuesday. They came to
meet Mis. Stillwell and family.
One of the silent industries of our
town. (I. say silent because we do
not hear much of it up in town,) is
the agricultural, implement factory
of Mr. J. ,C. Counts. ?.Mr. Counts be
gan 25 GE ~so years ago to manufac
ture scythe cradles and that.bas grown
that now he manufactures grain
cradles, plow stocks, cotton planters,
ultivators, &c. I2Te also runs a

uperiority of his goods warrant that
ey should be better known, and
-e hope to see his "ad" in The Her

trust the petition will be granted by
the board of county commissioners.
There are two new residences being
