Entered at the Postoffice at New

The Herald and News does not
know much about the whiskey busi
ness or the business of the dispensary.
In fact it might be said that we know
nothing about it. But being a citi
zen of the state and therefore slight
ly interested in the whiskey business
done by the state we presume to
We have not the figures or the pa
pers before us but we have a faint
recollection that the investigation
committee appointed by the legisla
ture to look into the management ot
the dispensary in addition to sundry
other things discovered that the state
had more whiskey on hand than the
law permitted. In fact we believe the
law says the stock must be kept down
to some $400,000 and they found that
there was somewhere about a million
dollars' worth of liquor on hand and
they ordered the commissioners to
withhold payment or something to
that effect and the present board
passed resolutions to cooperate with
the investigation committee. The in
vestigation committee also furnished
the board with a list of whiskey deal
ers who were under suspicion by them
and from whom no whiskey was to be
bought. The new board, however,
with this big stock of goods on hand,
according to the reports purchased
"12,000 barrels of whiskey and
brandy, 12 cars of beer, 4,425 cases of
case goods. It would take two trains
of 25 cars each to handle the bulk of
the entire purehale.' Now if the
dispensary is overstocked and the
payment of what is already bought is
to be withheld why purchase more
whiskey. Why not sell what is on
hand before purchasing so much
more goods. Why not pay for what
has been bought before purchasing
more goods. That seems to us to be
a pertinent question. If it is not we
do not insist on it.
. We do not understand liow the
commission can withold payment for
the goods ordered by those who were
authorized to make the order.
The appropriat.ion for rural deliv
ery, provided in the bill now before
congress, is $28,000,000. This is an
increase of $3,000,000 over last year
and is evidence that the proposal to
hamper this branch of the depart
ment has failed. As the State has
all along maintained, the govern
ment can do no greater benefit to the
people of the whole country than in
the generous extenision of the rural
mail delivery service. It is a great
educator. The direct returns will in
a few years equal the expenditures.!
<but -the indirect returns are inealcul
able. The total amount to be appro
priated for the postoffice department
is $191.000,000. an increase of $10,
000,000 over the previous year. That
isr an enormous sum, but unlike the
other great app'opriations, most of
it is returned to the treasury.-The
We copy the above to give it our
heArty endorsement. "The govern
ment can do no gre,ater benefit to the
people of the whole country than in
the generous extension of the rural
mail delivery service,'' bears repeat-:
ing. And yet we fear sometimes that
the people of the rural districts do
not appreciate this service as they
should- On some of the routes even
in Newberry county, you will find
people who do not take either one of
their county papers. It would pay
them to subscribe for both rather
than lose the service of the mail
even if the papers were not worth
the money charged. There is not one
family on any route who would not
Mather pay three dollars a year than
have the service discontinued. Let
all our, people be aroused to the im
.portance of this matter and send in
subscriptions at once.
A Grand Old Gentleman.
Dr. Geo. R. Harding, father of
Mrs. A. L. Thayer, who has been vis
iting the latter in this city for some
time, has returned to his home in
Newberry, S. C.
Dr. Harding is a very interesting
old gentleman, who has lived a long
anid eventful life. HIe is a veteran
dentist. and besides a minster in
t awMet hodi F.piscopal church, min
Halils oft his feilow man. lHe i<
past his thlree score and ten mile
stones of life, but in spite (f his
years and a severe injury received a
few months ago on a railroad, he gets
about well, though with the aid of a
cr+tch which he informed a memi
ber of the independet staff l-t
week . he intended to throw away in
a rew days. He had ju-st returned
fnrn a trip to 4uba. from which it is
evident that ieither age nor bodily
intiirmitv has dulled his love of travel.
le is one of the oldest living
Knights of Pythias, having joined
the order in 1867, when it was an in
fant of three years, was one of the
first district deputy grand chancellors
of the first Grand Lodge. He is an
Odd Fellow. having joined that order
half a century ago, and has also for
many years been a member of the
Red Men, the Druids and the Knights
of Honor. His fraternal record is
one hard to beat.
In his trayels lie has covered both
continents, and has not quit travel
ing Yet. le has covered Europe ex
tensively, elimbing Alpine peaks and
looking down into the smoking era
ter of Vesuvius, the destroyer of cit
ies. He has visited the Holy Land,
and in Palestine literally "trod the
paths the saints have trod," and liv
ed several years in South America.
Finally lie came to St. Petersburg,
and it is the hope of his friends
here that the venerable "globe trot
ter" will live to pay this city many
visits in the future.-St. Petersburg
B. C.. Whitney's "Isle of Spice."
In richness of costume, stage
groupings and stage settings, beauty
and grace of chorus and the mechani
cal effects, the "Isle of Spice,"
which will be presented at the Opera
House, Saturday, March 31st., will
far excel any similar production ever
offered at this theatre. Money has
been lavishly expended in the matter
of costumes for this musical extrav
aganza, and the piece is staged in
splendid style. The light effects are
original and startling. The female
members of the company have been
selected with much care, and they are
not only pretty of face and figure,
but rich in voice.
The leading ladies of the company
are: Miss Leslie Leigh and Miss Mat
tie Martz. Miss Leigh is a cute Miss
with a beautiful soprano voice, which
she -has many opportunities for us
ing during the performance. Miss
Martz is both pretty and graceful,
and is sure to be a favorite with the
audience from her first appearance.
Her voice is exceedingly clear and
sweet, and when she sings, every indi
vidual in the audienee will sit up and
Sam Mylie is the leading funi mak
er with the "IJsle of Spice,'' and is a
huge success in his role of King
Bompopka, which gives him many
opportunities to convulse his audi
ence with laughter. His fondness for
draw poker, with the assistance of
the other two comedians, Herbert
Cawthorn and Harry Watson, causes
much trouble to himself and great
fun to the audience. Others in the
cast are George Whyte, Harry Griffith
and Robert Kane, and Susie Forrester
and May Sweeney.
