How about that new steel bridge
over the railroad on Boundary street?
It is needed and should be built.
Representatives of the Pythians in
the fourth district will reach Newber
ry today. We bid them welcome and
trust that their meeting today may be
profitable to them as well as to us.
A correspondent of the State sug
gests that South Carolina elect Col.
James T. Bacon governor. The sug
gestion is a good one. Why not? He
would grace the executive mansion
and would be at home in the execu:ive
Mayor Rhett of Charleston made
a good business talk to the business
men of Anderson the other evening.
We are glad to see the chief execu
tive of th! city by the sea getting out
among the people of the rest of the
state. [t will do a whole lot of good
if the people of all sections could get
together oftener for then they would
understand each other better.
Our observation in passing through
the country is that the farmers are
planting more corn than usual. In
many places we have noticed that it
was not ;nly planted but that a good
stand was up. This cold spell may
cut it down but if it does better re
The frost caught the early cotton
that was up. The fruit in many sec
ns it is feared is killed.
Mr. F. H. Hyatt says he is not a
candidate for governor and will not
be unless there should be a case of the
orice going out calling for him to
c-me ard fill it. The other dozen or
more candidates who are diligently
seeking to show their fitness for the
office will not see the necessity for
the office going out after Mr. Hyatt.
Nobody seems to be interested in
having the new union station built.
We understand that President Childs
is willing to go to work and build a
* station here out of brick and one tbat
will be an ornament to the city if the
people will unite on a suitable and
convenient location and we are sure
the Southern will cooperate. Why
couldl we not unite on a place- and say
to the railroads that we are united in
this place and in the request that you
put up a station here in keeping with
the importance of this city and we be
lieve the railroads would respond. But
until we get together on something
we canno*t expect anything.
The state board of dispensary di
rectors will have a hearing this week
on the question of the legality of beer
dispensaries. They have summoned
all the beer dispensers to appear be
fore them. We never thought that
any one, not even the board, ques
tioned the fact that these beer dis
pensaries were not in accordance with
the dispensary law. The very fact
that they were called beer "privileges"
* is on its fagn .admission that they
were graftd by stretching the dis

The Witty Butcher.
Miss Marian Winchester, the Amer

the "'Sugar Queen" on account of her
successful sugar speculations, has a
reputation for cynical humor, says
the Salt Lake Tribune.
"Miss Winchester," said a New
York woman, "was recently called or
for a toast at the annual dinner of a

made many keen, swift thrusts at the
faults of women. I remember how
she attacked womanl's vanity.

"who in a season of depression wen'
