iThe Herald and News,
Newberry, S. C.,
Dear Sirs:--Have you in your files
any special issue of your paper, or any
other .printed matter which describes
the city of Newberry, and tributary
country? We own an issue of bonds
on your city, and have little informa
tion on the town other than financial.
Should you be unable to supply us
with anything of the kind, we would
thank you to turn our letter over to a
local Board of trade or other organi
zation, which might be abile to sup
ply us with data.
We would appreciate yoiur early
compliance with .the above request,
and trust chat you may have the de
We publish the above simply to call
the attention of our citizens to the
dearth, if not total absence of the in
formation desired by our correspond
ent and our inability to comply with
In season and out of season, some
times, and very often when unpopular,
The Herald and News has advocated
- the formation of some organization
tihat would - look out for the city's in
iterests- and to meet just such contin
-gencies as the above letter makes.
True, some years ago there was form
ed a Board of Trade and there were
high hopes for it permanency, but for
some cause it has been allowed to
linger until now only the dark shad
ows of a -fas increasing decrepitude
furnish the forebodings of- an early
A live\, working, resourceful. Board
of TrAde, or Chmber of Commerce,
or-'whatever-meme -we -choose tom'-all
iestablished in our. town, with
enough public spirited men to bacle.it,
would accomplish 'wonders. for our
townn for its rapid advancement in a
very few years. Newberry town and
S county have many inducements to
hold outc to prospective 'settlers and
investors-there -is absolutely no need
ord excuse, .or jreason, for our young
*men, thie sturdy, virile manhood of our
country, to ie.ibeguiled to the inhos
pitable lands of Oklahoma, or any
where in the west, for that matter.
7Newierry can't afford to let her
'young white men, oftentimes with
their families, be led astray by the se
ductive' blandishmnents of western
\% land agents.
Where can one -find a fai i-er and
more -exhilarating clime than wraps
the romantic and historic -old city and
county of Newberry? Viewed from
any point the prospect is pleasing.
With resources and avenues .for prof
itable investments almost limitless,
historic and magnificent in. achieve
ments in peace and war, in letters and
statesmanship, a people the synonyni
of culture .and hospitality, with a
courtly pride of county that brooks
no slander of her people, that resents
as a personal offence the barest sus
picion of wrong-doing: why should
one wish to leave here and take up
iiis abode among less frien-dly and
less favorable surroundings? There
are those of us who believe that the
omnipotent Artist never painted fairer
skies than those Which arch our beau
tiful and romantic hills and prolific
We have -a great people-a country
incomparable in every prospect for
material prosperity. Let us show co
other and 'benighted regions our
L matchless resources and ask them to
come and join us. Let us not be sel
Again *we urge the rarge 'hearted,
public-spirited citizens of our town to
'bestir themselves that in future, such
requests as this from our Chicago
friends may ible fully and satisfactorily
answered, and to the great benefit of
