WHAT A NEWSPAPER DOES.
Speaking of what a newspaper
does for a community, United States
Senator David Davis, of Illinois,
made an address that remains fresh
in the 'memory of newspaper men.
.He said: "Every year each local pa
per gives from 500 to 5,000 free lines
for the community in which it is lo
cated. No other agency can or will
do this. The editor in proportion to
his means does more for his own town
than any other man. He ought to be
supported not because you happen to
like him or admire his writing, but be
cause a local paper is the best invest
ment a community can have. It may
not be crowded with great thoughts,
but financially, it is of more beauty
than both preacher and teacher. To
day editors" do more for less pay than
any other man on earth. Patronize
your home paper not as a charity but
as an investment."
And yet in every community there
are people who never do anything to
help the local newspaper except to
cuss it and abuse it and talk about
how it ought to be run. And there
are those who appreciate their paper.
Both classes are necessary to the life
of the newspaper.
Columbia is in the throes of a re
ligious spasm, and the* authorities
pi6pose to stop the 'sale of fruit,
soft drinks and eigars- on Sunday ex
cept by and through 'the slot ma
chines, which Judge Iydrick said
were not violating the law." The
next thing we may expect is the for
bidding of boarding .houses to serve
warm hash at the breakfast table on
Sdnday morning.-Abbeville Press
Don't be alarmed. The street cars
are still running on Sunday, the slot
machines are busy and when we were
in Ctilumbia the other Sunday Main
street,was lined with heands witlh.pick
*and shovel busy at woik on the street
The article published elsewhere on
'the location of the court house is
alright. The Herald and News does
not want the court house 'to "come
our way'' unless the way we suggest
'is thought to be the :best site4fr its
its location. We have no interest in the.
matter whatever except that which
- s best for. the county 'of Newberry,
and if we are to build a new court
house it should be located at such
place as will serve the .best interests
of the entire county.
We- publish in full Senator Till
Sman's broadside on the dispensary.
,There is no use to make charges and
talk ,about rings. If the dispensary
system is to remain' at all it must re
main not as a state institution but
under county control.
It seems to us that more noise is.
being made about the use of request
-books than is necessary. If that is
all that is wrong with the dispensary
it is in good shape.

The Old Maids' Convention and
Its Results as Miss Dunkel will put
it on at the opera house April 6, with
a large cast of Newberry's best talent.
Miss Dunkel has had 200 conventions
with unfailing success and the one
here will be different from the one
held here in the past. A second part
of the programme will be a series of
beautiful statue poses under power
ful colored lights.

State Sunday School Convention.
The Sunday school convention at
Pelzer to be held next week, April
10-12, promises to be a great gather
ing of the Sunday school workers of
the state. It is expected and hoped
that there will be a large number to
go from Newberry county. Dr. Pel
ham, the state chairman, advises us
that two of the International field
workers will attend, Mr. W. C. Pearce
teacher training secretary, from Chi
cago, and Mrs. J. W. Barnes, Inter
national primary secretary, from
Newark, N. J. These two are very
prominent in the work and are ex
ceedingly instructive and entertain
ing. Our readers should remember
that the railroads have granted es
pecial rates of full farie going and 1-3
fare -returning. . Write to Mr. A. M.
Lander, Pelzer, of your coming so
that entertainment may be provided.
It is hoped many Sunday schools
from Newberry and the county will
send delegates to this interesting oe

Not To Run ror Attorney General.
Hon. Thos. S. Sease. S'olicitor for
the Seventh Judicial distriet, has
been discussed to a consi(lerable (e
gree as an available candidate for
Attorney General, and there has been
so much talk to that effect that we
had about concluded that he would be
in the race. But Mr. Sease is quoted
as saying that he will not aspire to
the attorney generalship, but will be
perfectly satisfied to be re-elected
solicitor. The state can't have too
many good solicitors, and Mr. Sease
enjoys the distinction of ranking with
the very best of them.-Greenville
There is no doubt of Solicitor Sease
being among the best prosecuting
officers in the state. His management
of the George Hasty murder case was
able and brilliant and the conviction
of the murderer was largely due to
this talented and brave solicitor. The
state would be proud of him as'at
torney general.-Hampton Guardian.
A great many nice things have been
said about Solicitor Sease. The Her
ald and News is always delighted to
hear them for in addition to our per
sonal friendship Solicitor Sease is a.
Newberry boy and we are always
pleased to hear good things of our
own boys when they go to other fields.
The Herald and News thinks Solicitor
Sease is wise in retaining his position
as solicitor rather than running for
attorney general though it has been
pretty- generally conceded that he
could win if he would enter the race.
He makes one of the best solicitors
in the state, and is deservedly popu
lar in his circuit.
