Entered.at the Postoffice at New
,*berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, March 20, 1906.
Representative Lever has just ar
tanged with the postoffice depart
ment, to place a mail agent, J. J. Biek
ley, on the early train out of Laurens,
says the Newberry Herald and Newb
of the 9th instant, getting its infor
mation from the Washington letter in
the Columbia Evening Record. The
Newberry paper goes on to voice our
sentiment in saying that it is good
news and the people all along the line
appreciate the good offices of Mr.
Lever in this matter; that the new
service to be inaugurated will be of
great convenience to the people along
the line between Laurens and Colum
bia; that the railroad authorties say
the service will be put on 'very soon,
but just at what date it cannot be
stated at this writing; and that as
soon as this is done Mr. Childs should
through to Greenville.-Laurens Her
Congressman Aiken also as a let
ter from the department stating that
the service- has been authorized and
President Childs told.us the other day
that he was now arranging his coach
es so as to make a place for the mail
agent and that he would be put on
very soon. That will be a great con
venience but what we want to do
along the line now is to persuade and
convince Mr. Childs that this train
-should be made a regular passenger
train and that it should run from
Greenville to Columbia but certainly
from Laurens and about on the same
schedule as it is now running on.
He is almost persuaded now to
put it on and it will not take a great
deal of pleading. Suppose we all
go and ask him if he will not at least
try it as a passenger train as soon as
the mail agent goes on.
DON'T BE A KNOCKERE.
If there.is any chance to boom bus
iness, boom it. Don't pull a long
facee anid look as though you had a
sour stomach. Hold up your head,
*smile and look for better things. Hide
your little hammer, and try to speak
'well of others, no matter how small
you know yourself to be.
When a stranger drops in jolly him;
tell.him this is the greatest town in
the state-and it is. -Don't discour
age him by speaking ill of your neigh
bors-lead him to believe that he has
at last struck a place where white
people live. Don't knock.
Help yourself along by becoming
popular and push your friends with
you. It's dead easy. Be a good fel
low and soon you'll' have a procession
of good fellows. No mian ever helped
imnslf by knoeking other people
down in character and business-no
anan ever got rich by .trying to make
others believe he' was the only man
in town, or the only man in town who'
kriew anything. You can't climb the
ladder of success,by treading on oth-'
era' corns; keep off the corns and
You are not the only one. There,
are others and they have brains and
know something as well as you.
There's no end of fun minding your
own business-it makes other people
like you. Nobody gets stuck on a
:knoeker; don't be one; be good, and
subscribe for The Herald and News.
It twill only cost you a dollar and a
half a year, and will be a material aid
in keeping you from being a knocker.
We have appropriated the above
from the St. Matthews Commercial
Advance but it will apply alright to
We have not yet gotten sufficiently
aroused and enthused not to have our
.knockers. The. city is going right
ahead in spite of them, however, but
it would be so much smoother sailing
if -everybody would join hands now
and help and stop knocking. Give this
plan a trial and see how it works.

If he should have opposition which
is not probable then he and his op
ponent might enter the campaign
and discuss national questions but lie
should let state matters alone.
He will not be able to change the
minds of the people on the dispensary
question for they have had the ques
tion aired in almost every possible
form, but he may be able to stir up
factionalism again which we are sure
he does not desire.
Mr. M. F. Ansel, an avowed candi
date for governor, announces his
platform. When he ran three years
ago he and all the other candidates
in that race were avowed state dispen
sary candidates as "the best soli
tion.'" He is the only one in that race
who is a candidate this year. He now
says that he is no longer in favor of
the state institution but thinks it
ought to go and that the people of
each county should have the right to
say what they want as between dis
pensary and prohibition but would
deny them the right to say whether
they want a license system as provid
ed in constitution. We would judge
Mr. Ansel is a prohibitionist in theory
and practice, but as a practical politi
cian he wants the people to say
what they want.
"In short," says Mr. Ansel, "I am
opposed to the system of a state dis
pensary, I am in favor of local county
option as between prohibition and
county dispensaries. I am opposed to
high license and am in favor of such
laws as will decrease the sale of li
quors in this state."
It would seem from this that Mr.
Ansel is opposed to the state dispen
sary; is opposed to high license; is a
f rohibitionist~ himself and. wants the
people to say in each county what
