How about that union depot? We
notice that the railroad commisioners
have given the C.. N. & L. and the
Seaboard ninety days in which to do
something towards building a union
depot at Clinton. If our people
would unite on some plan we could
have a nice new depot. too. We need
it about as much as Clinton. The
place is at the junction on Caldwell
Col. Keitt's solution of the situa
tion for the farmers is the correct
one. It is what the Herald and News
has advocated for many years. The
farmer in this section of the south
who raises on the farm all he needs
for the farm and makes cotton his
surplus crop will make some money
farming with cotton at five cent, but
if :his practice were followed cotton
would not remain at five cents be
cause there would be overproduc
tion. In fact as we -rstand it one
of the purposes of the present organi
zation of the farmers is to bring
about a diversification of crops. And
in order to get relief at present there
must be a reduction in acreage over
last year. If that is done the surplus
which is still in the hands of the- far
mers will bring a much better price.
Chico was not elected to the legis
lature from Charleston but he receiv
ed some five hundred votes. If -e
received only the support of the blind
tigers there is a goodly number of
them in the "city by the sea."
The Herald and News hopes that
there will be nothing done to -hurt
our schools on account of the tangle
in which we seem to be as to the
election of trustees. The present trus
tees are acting under the advice of
their attorney and the atotrney gen
eral's office. They have considerable 1
funds on hand as a sinking fund and
they desire to be right when it is
turned over to their successors.
Every citizen should be willing and
anxious to do that which is best for

young life cut short in the very bloom
Mr. A. B. Piester, one of our best
citizens and neighbors, has been call

Young Mr. Olin Piester, after a hard

two weeks, passed over the river on
Thursday night, March 16, aged 14
years. 10 months and 8 days. His
heart-broken father has at last car
ried his all to the grave.
Mr. Piester has been twice married,
first to Miss Carrie Kinard, the
daughter of Mr. M. L. Kinard, de

this mother. The first died an infant,
Olin being the second. This union
lasted t:hree or four years.
Mr. 'Piester then married Miss
Janie Long, the daughter of Mr. M.
M. Long. They lived together a little
more tharil one year, after which the
mother, with a little infant, was taken
And nowv the poor fat:her is left,
like a solitary tree of the forest, alone,
all around him swept away. But weep
not, my dear friend, as one wvho has
no hope. The loss you now mourn
is only your dear boy's etLanal gain.
Be comforted. The Lord will
command his loving kidness in
the day-Lime and in the night
his song shall be with you.

and most loved. It is a cherished

a*:d was very much beloved by his
school-mates and all who knew him.
His seat was never vacant at the
Sunday School. A little more than a
year ago his pastor confirmed him as
a member of Bachman Chapel church,
at which place his body now rests.
The funeral services were conduct

Derrick, in a most feeling manner.
The church was thronged with people
and the house could not hold the
crowd that was present.
Now, boys, this should be a lesson
