"The very fumes of burning tobaccc
are an incentive to immoral and per
nicious conduct," said Mr. Robert L
Reamy, of Baltimore, in an address t<
the Epworth Leaguers the other day
"A smoke laden room" he continued
'is more harmful by far than th<
smokers imagine, and it inspires
spirit in those who inhale The smok
which is the doorstep to sin." If Mr
Reamv is so easily carried as all tha
users of tobacco should certainly ab
stain in his presence.-The Evenini
Dr. Geo. B. Cromer, in a card t<
The Herald and News. states tha
the "invitation that Mr. A. L. Aul
savs that he sent me to attend th
meeting at Pomaria 'ast Sati'r-ay wa
never received." In justice to ai
parties it is stated that The Heral<
and News said that Dr. Cromer wa
invited because Mr. Adam L. Aull
who gave the barbecue at Pomaria
stated to two representatives of Th
Herald and News, one of whom wa
chairman of the meeting. that DI
Cromer was invited. As a matte
of fact, the chairman of the meeting
at Mr. Adam L. Aull's request, an
nounced publicly that Dr. Crome
was invited. This statement is mad
simply to give this newspaper's au
thority for the statement. We desiri
to do not iniustice to any one.

Mr. Sam Sheftall. the presiden: o
t-he company which is operating the
hotel has done everything possible
to make the association welcome and
to supply the wants of the edi:ors.
Many very important improvements
have been made in the property lhere
and this is now one of the most de
lightful summer resorts in the South.
T-he hotel is well caqiipped and the
service iseverything that could pos
sibly be desired. The fare is excel
lent and the dining room service
go'od. In fact I ifl inraiya up

THE REGISTRATION BOOKS.
A Card From Mr. Thos. J. Wilson,
Chairman of the Board of Regis
Editor of The Herald and News:
I notice that you have published the
number of names contained on the
county books of registration as I
gave them to you. saying that you
know that there is not that many
voters in the county. but just how we
- are to tell who are voters and who are
not is going to be a diricult task.
You never made an expression that
contained more truth.
The books are now under way of
revision. There is no trouble to tell
that a man is regis:ered when you
ind his name on the b,oks. But
when one man's name appears upon
t five or six different books, as people
continually move from cne place to
another necessitates transfers, under
such a conditio..n it is a considerablI
task to bail them down to their lo
cation. Senator Blease told me that
the books of registration had been
reported to him as being in a con
t siderable mess. This 1 suppose the
senator already knew, and upon such
a report he had provided an act at the
last legislature to have the books re
vised. I am very much obliged to the
man who reported this to the senator.
It makes no difference to me what his
s object was. There is no one who
knew all of this any better than my
self, as I have been dealing with the
books for the past six years. If that
e man will come to me and tell me how
s this mixing up of names could have
- been avoided I will make hin- a pres
r ent of what the county is to pay me
a for my service of revising the books.
- Or if he will say that I am responsi
r ble for the people changing residence,
e dying and going to other parts I will
- make him the same offer. Put any
a how I am proud the senator made this
provision. so when I go out of the
office, I mean to leave it in a better
condition than I found it.
But. Mr. Editor, just how we are
to do the work is what you want to
a know. This is the plan that we have
a adopted: I go to each precinct or to
e a man who I know is thoroughly ac
a quainted with the voters of that pre
r cinct, taking my old record book with
me and get him to assist me in 1h
e cating the people. I check off all
i those who he knows to be dead or
e moved away and then I transcribe the
rest upon the new books. While we
- will not be able to locate just every
e one, yet by this means we will be able
-' to give a very close approximation
1 of the legal electors in Newberry
I county, which I will have published
-after the wvork is done for the satis
- faction of the'public.
t WVe are pushing the work and hope
to have the new books completed by
a' Saturday, July the 22nd,'which I hope
1 will give sa'tisfaction to the public at
-large. In fact I am sure when you
/' compare the old books with the new
f ones you will say that the amount
paid for the work is money well spent
1 and I want to recommend to all those
S who may have occasion to handle the
1new books that they use a lit-tle more
- I can assure you that the present
I torn up condition of the old books
> is not due to the board of supervisors
- of registration.
