Owing to Good Fire Department
And Water Pressure- New
berry in Second Class.
On the 15th of this month the
Southern Eastern Tariff Association
revised its rates as to Newberry and
put the city in the second class which
reduces the rate from 30 to 50 per
There is a general readiustment of
rates. On some risks the reduction
is as great as fifty per cenJt. while on
others it is not so great.
This reduction is due to the effi
ciency of our fire department and the
strong pressure of our water supply.~
The reduction in rates of insur
ance since the installation of our
water works has made a sufficient
saving to pay the cost of this im
provement alone, besides the advan
tages to be derived from it.
At the :ate convention of the Wo
man's Home and Foreign Misisonary
society of the South Carolina Luth
eran synod, it was decided that the
mission in Spartanburg be made the
Ladies' Memorial mission. They will
appropriate at least $2,500 toward the
church, and the board of missions of
the United Synod has been asked to
cooperate in the establishment of that
church, and will do so as soon as
the present obligations to the Atlan
ta mission have been met. This en
terprise has been under the care of
Rev. S. T. Hallman and promises
much for the future.
