In an article in the Columbia State
of yesterday, attention is directed by
Superin-tendent Simpsonn to the im
provemernt which have been made in
the -ervice on the Southern between
Columbia and Greenville, and Mr.
Simpsam calls attenton to the fact
that pirt of this line has already
been ((uipped with il-avy rails, and
he says he expects to have the whole
line so equipped within the next
twelve months. The people all along
the line appreciate the improved pas
senger service which the Southern
has given them, and they will be de
lighted to know that the work of lay
ing the heavy rail will be pushed to

Mr. Simpson also says that he is go

have asked for.
Greenwood is getting her hospital

the people of a town get together in

The Chronicle is pleased at the in
terest shown in what has been de
nominated "welfare work.'' The ten
deney to civic improvement and the
amelioration of conditions that sur
rou'nd people in big cities is toward
beauty as well as utility, and the out
door breathing spaces. In this connec
tion we comment upon the jetter print
ed yesterday and signed "A Machin
ist,'' advocating the sale of Allen
Park and the purchase instead of a
, big wooded tract, well watered, way
out in the country. It is interesting
as indicative of one man 's yearning
for the big spaces of wild nature,
but is not to be considered. Allen
Park should not be builded upon. Its
function as a park should be exercis
ed right where it is now. -Its location
is excellent and the trend* of the
city's growth is such that in a ,very
few 'dears Allen Park will be almost
i ndis~penlsable. The city that expects
to grow cannot give up any parked
space even to acquire another outside
its limits. Every such spot is needed,
if not at present, in the demands of
the future. The lesson taught by the
zreat municipalities that forgot to

taught to be neglected.-Augusta
The above is especially applicable
to Newberry at this time, when we
have an opportunity, which will pro
bably never come again, to widen
many of our streets and to ot.hrwise
improve and beautify the city. If we
would learn from the experience of
-other, cities, that forgot to widen
.their streets when the opportunity
presented itself, we would not let
-pass the opportunity which we now
Missouri has recently passed a law
authorizing farmers to make a trade
mark of the name of their farms. This
is a good law. and it- embodies a good
idea. If a farmer is successful in rais
ing a special kind of fruit or grain
or crop of any sort it will be worth
something2 to him to have the name
of his farm registered and serve as
a permanent advertisement of his
*products. There is no reason why
such a trade-mark should not *be as
valuable to the farmer or fruit-grow
*er or market gardener or 'dairy-far
mer as his trade-mark is to manufae
turer or merchant. It is the custom
in the Old World to name estates, and
in Scandinavian countries the name
of the estates becomes part of the
name of the family. The value of the
custom of naming farms and estates
has been shown in many cases where
certain produc-ts. as wines, have be
come famous under such names. The
examole of Missouri is one thiat might
be well followed throughout the coun
Such a law would be of great ad
vanag to farmers who take pride in

Stirred His Father's Pride.
Willie was regular mother's boy, a
writer in the Chicago Tribune de
clares. He was so devoted to. her that
he could not bear to have any one else
do things for him, not even his indul
gent father. One night he called his
father to his bedside.
"Papa," he said, ''will you please
to bring me a glass of water?"
His father went for the water,
glowing with pride at the unusual
summon, and when Willie had taken
his drink the parent's curiosity got
the better of him.
"Why," he asked, "did you call
me tonight, instead of your mother?'"
"Oh, there's been a dressmaker
here today, and I w4s afraid 'there
might be some pins or needles on the
floor to get into mama's feet," re
plied Willie, innocently.
Shaking Him Up.
A young married lady one morning
gave her husband a sealed let
ter, which he was to read when he got
to the office. He did so, and the let
ter ran as follows:
''I am obliged to tell you some
thing that may give you pain, but
there is no help for it. You shall know
everything, whatever be the conse
quences. For the last week I have felt
that it must come to this, but I have
waited until the last extremity, and
can remain silent no longer. Do not
overwhelm we with bittre reproach,
for you will hare to put up with your
share of the trouble as well as my
Cold perspiration stood 'in thiek
drops on the brow of the husband,
who was prepared for the worst.
Trembling he read on:
''Our coal is all gone. Please order
a ton to be sent this afternoon. I
thought you might forget it for the
tenth time, and therefore wrote' you
But he didn't forget that time!
Why We Had No Enemies.
Bishop Joseph F. Berry, during the
Miethodist conference 's recent session,
says the Indianapolis Star, to'ld a
story in illustration of the t'ender
eries of the wicked.
''I-t is said,'' he began, ''that when
the great Spanish marshal, Narvaez,
ay dying his confessor asked him if
e had any enemies.
'''No, whispered the marshal; 'I
"'But the priest, reflecting on the
stormy life of the dying man, repeat
'' 'Think sir! Have you no ene
nies~? None whatever?'
'''No,' said the marshal, 'none.'
''And he added, tranquilly:
'''I have shot them all.'''

How to Get Bid of Prejudices.
Troy, N. Y.. Times.
There is nothing like getting well
acquainted to knock erroneous no
tions out,of people's minds. At least
~two-thirds of the complications of the
past which led to serious disagree
ment if not to open hostility have been
traceable to the differences due to
distance and lack of close intercourse.
fodern methods, which by means of
steamship and cable lines are bring
ing everybody into touch, are steadily
doing away with causes of misunder
standing. Intelligent and unbiased
men and women, no matter what their
own beliefs, political, religious and so
cial, who travel abut the world and
learn to know the natives of other
regions, have most of their prejudices
removed and find that there is a great
common humanity where all can meet
on fairly equal terms. .
. All Took the Hint.
A man in a small western town
bought a quart of inilk and on arriv
ing home found it was adulterated
with water. The,next day he posted
bills in different sections' of the town
"I bought a quart of milk yester
day whieh I found to be adulterated.
If the scoundrel will bring me anoth
er quart I'll not denounce him."
The next day he found three quart
cans on his doorstep. There were
three dairymen in the town.
Compulsory honesty is like cleanli
ness enforced' by the health officer,
sure to relapse 'into filth when the
officer ceases his visits.

Tune: "Amazing Grace.''"
f"Amazing shame! how great today,
That robs the farmer's toil;
He once was free, but now a slave
A vassal on the soil.
The gam.blers on the boards of trade
The bulls and bears combine
To steal the profits from the crops
It is the grea.test crime.
This evil long have farmers borne;
For .freedonm they have sighed;
Unorganized they stood alone
In vain for right they cried.
'Tis union makes the farmers strong,
'Tis justi.ee they demand;
In equity they take delight,
For mighty truth they stand.''
