BUSINESS MEN'S CLUB.
The Herald and News is glad to
learn that steps have been taken look
ing to the organization of a business
men's club which shall have Vor its
purpose the bringing together of th'e
business interests and business men of
this community, for the general wel
fare of the community.
A great deal may be accomplimh-ed
by such an organization if the busi
ness interests will mate. It should
be partly social for in coming together
socially the business men learn to
know each other better and will find
out that there is something good in
But only those who are willing, to
work together in the spirits of
friendship and for the general wel
fare of this community should jin.
Of course that should include every
good citizen. There should be no
grumblers they should form another
club, and get off to themselves.
Newberry is now on a more sub
stantial basis and is growing more
rapidly. and substantially than she
has in the past twenty nye years
and now is the time to take hold.
The Herald and News will do all
it can to help organize and make sue
cessful the organization here suggest
NLUENCE OF THE CHURCH.
Eliminating all questions of spirit
uality, if it may be permitted for the
purpose, and look at the matter from
purely a social standpoint, we see that
"the. people who attend church regular
ly are really the most cultured, and
oharming people of any community.
Indeed it is respectable to attend
-The man in a southern. community.
--who never enters the house of wor
ship, and boasts that he does not at
tend church is the exception if he is
not of the lower element of citizen
ship. Apart from~ the saving grace
of the church, and the power of God's
word, to give peace to the soul and
Sheart .of man, and lift the vision of
his spirit to a higher, purer and
.broader conception of his reason for
being, the influence of the ,pulpit is
-indeed the greatest agency at work in
The universe for the improvement of
We believe the power of the minis
try is greater today than eversin the
bistory of the world. There are more
ehiurches and more ministers and more
people hearing each Sabbath the word.
The word and teaching of the minis
ter carries its influence into hearts
and homes the world knows not of.
This is very true. If we could im
agine a situation where there were no
ehurches we would see a state of bar
barism. The influence of the church
is for good always and if there are
*people in a community who do not
attend church, and unfortunately
there are some such in-every commu
nity, yet they would not like to see
the church closed.
Every good citizen whether he be a
member of the church or not should
attend the services of the church be
cause the influence on him will be,
good and then his presence gives en
couragement to the minister whose ef
forts are always for the benefit and
uplifting of humanity. And one al
ways feels better for the secular du
ties of the coming week if he has at
tended church on Sunday and listen
dd to a good sermon.
FESTERED BY BEES..
"The following are said to have the
Gubernatorial bee in their bonnets,
though formal announcement of can
didacies has not in all cases been
made: Richard I. Manning, of Sum

tor Brice didn't hear a noise like a
buzz ?-Fort Mill Times.
Nobody. But some people have bet
ter hearing than others and sometimes
the buzz is more clear and distinct
than at others.
"State colleges got all they asked
for from the le:islature this year.''
Herald and News. Little consolation
in that, contemporary. Pupils attend
ing state schools, as a general rule,
are of a class who could have attend
edl had the legislatu~re ignored the col
leges. The need of the coutryt is
mor and better rural schools and a
law to compel parents to send their
children to them.-Fort Mfill Times.
You are correct in this. The last
legislature was very liberal in every
appropriation asked. We renerl',
though, that in the house two years
ago there was considerable opposi
tion to the proposition to appropriate
the small sum of $5,000 for the sup
port of rural free libraries for public
schools. It is true that most of those
who -are in the State colleges could be
their or in some college if the state
did not make any appropriation and
yet most of them are going without
paying the small tuition which is

In another column we publish a let
ter from President Harvie Jordan in
which he advises that the holding
movement is still strong and that for:
the balance of this crop the price must
'be fifteen cents. He also advises a
curtailment of the next crop so that
what is grown will be absolutely re
quired by the consuming world and
will therefore command profitable
prices. He concludes as follows which
words we most heartily commend to
the farmers of Newberry county:
"The slogan for the next two
months throughout the entire dotton
belt must be Diversification, less cot
ton, more food supplies, and an abso
lute refusal of spot holders to market
their middling cotton for less than 15
cents. Show the world a normal acre-;
