The Comag and Going of 'the Peo- f
ple 9f a Live and Progres- s
sive Town. 1
Prosper-ky, Nov. 7.--There is some .1
talk of giebig as much as $3o,ooo from a
the tag tax to the Agricultural and f
Mechanical society of South C;iro- a
lina. This will if it is done, enable d
the society to make their grounds c
what they should belsecond to none t
in the south. i1
Everything considered the last fair
was one of,the best we ever attended p
barring the unfinished condition of S
the grounds, which of course will t
not be the case next year. If Clemson (
does not. need the $3o,ooo let it go e
to help the farming interests of the o
state. Our state institutions have li
been getting immense sums for years v
which are largely out of reach of the il
farmers, but in the state fair all can t:
go and enjoy it and learn many ral
uable lessons if they will.
Rev. W. L.'Seabrook of Newberry v
stopped over in town for a couple ji
of hours on hii return from the cor- p
nerstone laying of the Lutheran
church at Saluda court house on c

Owing to our absence at Synod a
from Tuesday, until next week we will n
not be able to have a letter in next r
two issues. While we have been r
writing for each issue so far there h
will be times when we will not be r
able to get in more than one letter
a week. In our absence we will a
try to get some one to send up the N

Have any of the readers of The a
Herald and News heard about the d
American society of Equity? If not a
write to Up-to-Date Farimng, In- o
dianapolis and tell them you saw it n
in The Herald and News of Newber
ry, S. C.; and you will hear all about ,
it.' It is a good thing. Push it along. s
Today there is being waged all over b
/this union oio-urs, one- of the great- s
est battles ever fought. The blows s
are falling as quietly as the leaves l(
in autumn, but the victory will mean
much. At this writing it looks to d
us as though we would have 4 years a
more of Teddy. b
Hon. Geo. S. Mower spent Monday h
night in town, returning to Newberry ~
on the early train.
We now think we will like the newe
schedule on the Southern. It will
enable one to get to Columbia before
so very late in the night and enable d
us to read The Evening Telegram be- ti
fore going to bed. It will be reallys
today's news .today and not today's "
news tomorrow, as we have it in the
morning dailies. If it was an hourC
earlier it would be better still.
We see from the daily papers that
some New Englander has-' invented0
a cotton picker. The'man .who in-0
vented the Lowrey ;ound bale 4the
inventor of this machine. It is 'not
altodgethe'r aio(matic. It requires'
4 boys and a driver to manage it andC
will pick three bales a day. -It has
just been tried at Albaniy, Ga. The
-boys direct arms thiat pick the cotton.
The time may come yet when we
can ride and do all our work. There
is a corn harvester that one rides
and cuts and gathers his corn, tieing '
it in bundles or shocks, making it I'
ready for the shredder. Riding cul- c
tivators and turn plows, etc., are no
new thing. We will wonder how "
we got along at the beginning of the h
2oth century with our antiquated t'
methods. Life is progress. Repose a
is 'death. b
About two weeks ago the State had t
an article on the cost of rice and E
stated that 8 pecks make a bushel. c
and that rice cost the consumer $4.00
bushel. We were little a surprised
t this and thought perhaps, as the a

nc not eight as he figures. The real it
ifference is $1.48 to $2.00, only 52 m
ents per bushel. All know where o
iis goes. Railroads get most of
and the retailers the balance.
We had no idea that it woul4 be t
rinted but it was and it gave The
tate man a chance to come back at
ie rice man and acknowledge the

I replied that I did not think the r
bove rate excessive and that I did
ot expect the letter published and c

im that if he wasn't mad to send .
