-It was our good fortune to visit ti
old home on last Sunday. When w
got there we found the people wer
all going to the tabernacle at Epwort
where the Rey. Pierce Kinard an
the Holiness Association were cor
ducting a meeting. This has bee:
adopted as the annual meeting plac
for the Holiness Association of Sout
Carolina, and a very large and sul
stantial tent has been erected with
seating capacity of some two thous
and. It is in the midst of a ver
beautiful grove of oaks, and in addi
tion to this large auditorium. tent
and cottages are put up for the cou
venience of those who to go to th
meeting and remain until it close
Something after the fashion of th
oldtime eamp meetings. A restaui
ant is also provided so that those wh
do not desire to carry their lunch wit]
them or to do their cooking, ma;
have meals served at about cost.
There were at least two thousan,
people present at the service on Sur
day. When we arrived the Rei
Henry Morrison, of Kentucky, wa
preaching and he continued for some
thing over one and a half hours lon
ger, and it was very remarkable tha
this large audience should give hit
such good and quiet attention durin
such a long discourse. The meetin!
had been in progress for about
week and will continue during thi
We found several Newberrians i

This section of Greenwood county i
composed alm.st entirely of Newber
ry people and the descendants o:
Newberry people. Rev. Pierce Kin
ard and his brother, Mr. Mike Kin
ard, who live at Epworth, are sons o
Mr. 'Calvin Kinard, who moved fror
this county along with his two broth
ers, Drayton Kinard and Jeff Kinard
just after the war. The older Kinard:
have passed away, but their childrei
have prospered and have bought larg
quantities of these fine lands and ar
successful farmers. Mr. Henry Gall

Dr. A. J. Bowers, of Newberry, an<

then not far away is Mr. .Willian
Connelly, also a Newberrian. In fact
it is almost a Newberry settlement.
.We had the pleasure of dining wit]
- our old friend and former school
anate, Mr. Willie Bowers, and in ad
dition to the service at the tabernacle
enjoyed meeting these former New
berrians and we are pleased to b
able to say that they are doing so wel
in their adopted home and makmn;
such good citizens.
As we understand it, there was
tacit agreement on the part of thi
county supervisor if the legislatur
would provide for the purchase o:
two mules and make sufficient appro
priation for the maintenance of th
chain-gang, that the rcad scrape
would be put into use and kept in us
during the year in the work of th
roads. We do not know what the sup
ervisor has done in this regard, bu
we are told that at least one of th
road scrapes is standing by the road
side near Chappells, and has bee1
there for quite a while.
The following sentence appears i1
the supply bill for Newberry coun
tv. which is in accord with the state
nment above, that if provision wer
made for maintenance of the chain
gang and the purchase of two mule
that the road scrapes at least woul
be kept in service during this year

We desire to call attention again to I
the importance to the commercial in
terest of the city of having the road
from Newberrv to the steel bridge
put in good condition. We are at
_ times somewhat surprised that the
~ buisiness men of this dommunity
should be at least apparently so in
e different to having this road, as well
e as other public highways leading into
e the city, put in good condition. We
h emphasize this particular road for the
reason that it is the highway upon
which the greater portion of the Sa
1 luda trade has to travel. WV"hile we
have no doubt that the merchants of I
Newberry appreciate the trade from t
all sections and should be interested I
in making it easy for everybody to
come to the etiy, yet it seems to us
they should be especially interested
in making it convenient for our
s neighbors across the river to bring
- their produce here and to make this
a their market.
If we are not mistaken, it was un
e derstood at the beginning of this year t
~ that the farmers, who live along the
road from Newberry to the steel
brige, would furnish their teams and
'wagons free of charge after the crops t
were laid by, provided the supervisor
would take his chain gang and his
road machinery and assist them in
making a good road of this highway.
s We trust that this matter will not be
~ neglected, because at present the 1
road may be in fairly good condition.
A gentluman from Saluda county i
phoned us the other day that the steel t
bridge on the Newberry side was in
bad condition. We suppose that this
a has been repaired, however, as we
s have heard nothing further from it.
This is a very good road for the coun
a ty ,supervisor to put in good condi- t
tion so as to demonstrate what can be
done, and especially as he will have
the co-operation and. assistance of
- those farmers who live along the road
- from Newberry to the river.
a If the proper committee from the
F Chamber of Commeree would take f
this matter up now, it is possible that t
a they might be able to get the super- t
visor and his chain-gang to work in
conjunction with the citizens along
The Georgia legislature is consid- 's
-ering the pa sage of a bill which
-makes it compulsory that all hotels
and boarding houses shall keep spot-i
less linen on the beds. This is good.
-There is not the slightest reason for (
the bill to fail. If there isn't a sim-t
ilar law in South Carolina, one should (
be ene:eted at the very next meeting t
of the legislature.-Greenville News.
SOf course this is proper, and the f
act providing for cleanliness should a
be extended to the kitchen. It is al
most as important as that the linen
on the beds should be 'spotless.
We are making great progress in
regulating the conduct of our citizens
as to what they shall drink and where- 1
withal they shall be clot'ied and upon
what they shall be fed. We ought to
~o a step further ani stop card play
ing and horse racing and baseball and
all those things upon which any cit

A Good Move.
In connection with the lecture by

V medical society the Laurensville
Ierald very truly remarks:
This is another good move on the
)art of our Newberry frieds, and, in
lonjunction with the recent action at
Iinton (mention of which is made
n another column) it makes interest
ng reading, the importance of which
s not to be overestimated. No stron
'er invitation could possibly be ex
ended to the homeseeker, no greater
Lssurance given, than that the physi
ians of a city are banded together

ralue and benefit to a community than
any man in it; and when he works,
