more fully the effort of Congress
man Lever to secure mail service on
the through freight between Lau
rens and Columbia, on the Colum
bia, Newberry and Laurens road.
The success of Mr. Lever's ef
forts will mean a great deal in the
way of convenience to all the points
interested, and the people of New
berry and all along the line between
Columbia and Laurens very carn
estly hope to see .\r: Lever suc

The cruiser Charleston, the new
war vessel of the United States
navy, which has been in Charleston
harbor during the past several days,
sailed on Sunday afternoon for
Norfolk. The vessel went out at
dead low water, without the aid of
a pilot,~ giving a practical -demon-;
stration of the depth of the harbor.
The cruiser was presented with a;,
magnificent silver service during
her stay in Charleston, the gift of
t1e city whose namesake she is, and
the officers and crew were royally
entertained, as only Charleston
knows how to entertain.
In this magnificent cruiser not

principal city, whose name she
bears, but the people of all the
state, have a deep interest, and they
wish for her and for those whom:
she bears success and honor.

A Personal Word.
Four years ago I came here a
stranger to everybody with the pos
sible exception of a half dozen peo
ple. I promised then that my very
best was on the altar of service for
the highest good of Newberry. I
have tried to be faithful to that
promise. With what degree of suc
cess others must determine. I am
happy in the belief that in the effort
to realize my ideal I have made
many friends. I am sorry to be
lieve that for the same reason I
have incurred the displeasure ol
others. If it be true that a man is
known by the character of his
friends or that of his foes I am will
ig to be judged by either or both.
I have been the recipient of many
kindnesses from many people. Tc
each and all I want to express my
most grateful appreciation. I de
sire to make special mention of the
generosity of the editors of The
Herald and Newvs and the Observer
in furnishing me their papers free
of charge as wvell as for numerous
courtesies in other ways. My re*
gard for the medical fraternity oi
Newberry is high indeed. I doub1
if another town in South Carolina o:
similar size can boast their equals
as high toned gentlemen or theii
wisdom and skill in the healing art.
I am under great and lasting obli
lations to Dr. W. G. Houseal for
abundant and faithful service as
my family physician and to Drs.
0. B. Mayer and J. M. Kibler for
special and valuable services. May
Heaven smile on Newberry now
