It is very gratifying to the friends
of Newberry college, and these are
many, to learn of the bright prospect
for a large attendance of students the
approaching session. All of Newber
ry is proud of their college, and that
which affects her walfare is always
a source of interest, for in a large
sense the advancement and growth
of the college has been a stimulus
to the best thought of the community.
Newberry college is something more
'to us than a pile of so much brick
and mortar, she is a veritable bea
con of warning against evil habits
and propensities and an encourager
to noble ieeds and loftiest impulses.
No one can estimate in dollars and
cents the value to any community of
an institution of learning in its midst.
but in the sane common sense of her
citizens in the make up of a royal
citizenship, in the culture of her peo
ple may be found the true worth of
a college as "our" college is. It is
too often a fatal mistake of small
towns and cities to underrate the
blessings that they experience and
sometimes it is left to others to
evince the highest appreciation of
that which they can only partially
enjoy, but not so here, as Newberry
city and county have always given to
Newberry college a liberal -support.
The announcement too of an added
course of study, is a "consummation
devoutly to be wished," as it signi
fies a broadening sphere of usefulness.
The unselfish labors and devotion of
her Smeltzer and Kuhns and Hol
land will be have their rich reward
in her continuing prosperity. which an
able faculty and an ambitious stu
den: (body is striving earnestly to
maintain. Enjoying a climate tfh'at is
equa'ble and salubrious, and free from
extremes of heat and cold, with
buildings that are comforcabie and
modern. in a community that is high
toned and iriendly, there *can be no
reason why the enrollmer.t may not
be far in advance of past years. WVe
fee! a jnsm pride-in the forward meas
ures being inaugurate~d by Dr. Scherer
and we wish for him and for his en
adjutors of th'e faculty the largest
measure of success. inl all Their un
From the fact that no movement
has begun nor grounds been bro
ken, one may reasonably assumie that
thne much talked of union station is
to be a lusus natur-ae and not a fact,
though admittedly a necessi-ty. What
has become of the project? Has it
gone the way of all the earfd' or been
forgotten? We confess 1-o a certain
amount of disappointment if not dis
gust with the action of The railroad
companies, though, we have been
1oathi hitherto to pass censure, in the
vain hope that action would come.
Instead 'of the separate stations, in
volving frequent, if not daily danger,
*a central or union station would be
a fine investment for the roads opera
ting here. Let us take an example.
For instance, if one of our foremost
citizens were to meet with an- acci
dent, say 'The loss of a liimb or if
some mother's darling boy were run
over and his youthful life taken, the
"silver chord bhe - loosed," think you
a right feeling could actuate the higth
'officials of tihese roads, in view of re
peated references in these columns
and elsewhere to the crying need?
Think you that the citizens would not
feel an indignation akin to resent
ment? True, we pray this may never
occur, but it is rightly a supposable
case, and we are bold enough to
speak of it. For our part we hold that
demands should be made by the peo
ple in mass meeting, or else a strong
petition be forwarded pleading for
immediate action. Possibly these
m'atte?s are now being consummated,
and that ere many moons have
-waned, that a convenient and commo
dious central station will 'be construct
ed at som'e poini, we are not particu
lar where. 'The union station is what
in and out. te better safeguardin'
of human life. tihese are of para
mount importance. Will not somc
public spirited citizen take the initia
tiv-e in this matter? We hope so.
