It is the purpose of The Herald
and News in the next several weeks
to write up from time.to time the var
ious business and commercial inter
ests of the city. Some weeks ago we
had Mr. Salter to take interior views
of the four banking institutions of
the city. These articles are not in
tended to be historical, but rather to
show the Newberry of today. In this
connection, however, as the National
Bank is the oldest institution of its
kind in the city, and for a great many
years was the only bankiig- institu
tion in this part of the state, we give
today a cut of the three presidents
and a statement of its organization.
It was organized May 6, 1871, with
a capital stock of $150.000.00.
At a meeting of the stockholders
held June 3, 1871, the following were

* The vote today against investiga
r tion was eight republicans gainst four

mittee were present except Dolliver,
republican, and Talliferro, democrat.
t Republicans voting against investi
a gation were: Penrose, chairman;
s Proctor, Burrows, Scott, Crane, Ful

- voting for investigation were: Clay,
a Culberson, Simmons and Raynor. The
sub-committee consisting of Carter,
a Burrows and Culberson recommended
that no investigation be had, and
showed that the only investigation
I made was at the Wiite House at the
time of the Morris affair. Barnes al

urged an investigation, but the whole
t thing had already been cut and dried,

mand for an investigation of the Mor

has created great .indignation among
hundreds of people here who have

his treatment of Mrs. Morris.- This

An Easy Solution.
One morning as Judge C , of
Virginia, was starting for town, lie
was approached by one of his negroes,
who, with more or less confusion,
"Massa, when yo' goes to the co't
lhouse will yo' get ie a license? I'se
gwine to be mar'ed.''
"Married, are you, Sa'mi All
right," called the judge, as lie hasti
. ly drove off. Ai'r'ived at the court
house he spent a very busy day, and
it was not till lie was preparing to
leave that lie reinembered Sam's Ii

been told the name of the bride-elect.
rie old idiot, lie never told me
, who he wanted to marry, but, of
.course, it's Lucinda ; lie's always
making eyes at heri.''
So saying, he retur'ned to the court
Lhouse, and had the license made out
in the names of Sam and Lucinda.
Sam was the first to gr'ec's him upon
,his return with the inquiry:
"Glit my license, mussa''
"Yes, Say, you 01(1 1ool. You did
n 't tell me who you waited to marry,
b ut I remember how you 're alwvays
courting Luceinda and got the license
in heri name."
"Lawv, massa!'' exclaimed Sam,
"''taint Lucinda ; it 's Kyaline.
Wihat's I gwine to do?''
"Well,"' said the judge, ''the only
Ihing wvill be forn mec to get another

anyt 'ing fur' dat license?''
."Yes, Sam, a dollar' and seventy

f'or a few minutes, Sam rep'hlied:

Death of Dr. Pope.
Dr. Sampson Pope died in New
berry last Sunday night from the
effects of a severe attack of rheu
matism. He was about 70 years old
and leaves a wife, a son and a daugh
The newspaper specials sent out
from Columbia announcing the death
of Dr. Pope show that some men are
so prejudiced, so callous, that they
refrain from seeing the virtues and
good traits of 'person even after
death. An effort is apparently made
to emphasize the fact that Dr. Pope
''was an intense Tillman partisan,''
but later ''became a Republican. '' It
must he a depraved heart, indeed, that
is prompted to make a little political
capital at the expense of the (lead.
What was the necessity for lugging
this into the announcement.. ''Till
man partisan'' and ''Republican'
were sufficient to hide and smother
his virtues. It was only a step fron
Tillman partisan '' to '' Republican''
-while nothing is said about the in
fluence of some of those who now
traduce his memory in inducing him
to become an Independent candidate!
In the heart and passion of politics
'Dr. Pope, like all of us, may have said
anld done things which, in his calmei
moments he would not have said or
done. But he was not. the man to
have needlessly uttered one unkind
word that would east the least reflec
tion on the dead. The correspondent
knew or ought to have known, that
Dr. Pope was ' Republican" only
in the sense that hundreds of others
in South Caroline are RRepublican
to-day, (from a commercial stand
point) yet who are considered by this
same correspondent as exemplary de
We choose rather to throw the man
tle of charity over what sonie would
now seem to uncover and expose. It
can truly be said that Dr. Pope was
a good and useful citizen-his faults,
whatever lie had, (and what mortal
is exerhpt?) were of the head and not
of the heart. In his dealings with his
fellow-man lie was upright and hon
est and he loved his stat. A high
toned, honorable man in every respect.
The Great Clock at Rouen.
The ancient city of Roten, France,
owns the very earliest specimem of
the larger varieties of the ancient
clock makers' triumphs. It was made
by Jehan de Felains and was finished
and set going in September, 1389. So
perfent in construetion is this ancient
time recording machine that, allhomoh
it has been re.ilairly strikiig the
hours, halves and <Iuarters for centil
ries, it is still used ias a regulator. The
case of this early borological oddity
is six fee eight inches in height by
live inclies broad. For 325 years it
continued to run without a pendu lum,
being provided with 'what Ihe old time
O(+cl makers called -a ' 'foliot.''
The Only One of Its Kind.
On an evening somewhere about the
end of the sixteenth century a travel
cer from Sweden might have been ob
served at the door of the Rose theater
in London. lie was going to see a new
p)iece call ''Titus Andronicus, '' and
in ordler to follo,w it in the native lan
guage lie bought a copy of the play,
price sixpence, at the theater door.
When he went home to Sweden he
took the book with him to show his
wife and friendls what strange stuff
the foreigner rantedl. For 300 years
it was preservedl and in 1904, being
discoveredl in thle ho(me of a country
wvoman was transferred for safety to
the Lunil an iversity. Tfhe book is thle
only one of its kind known to exist.
