NOW IS THE TIME.
If Newberry Wants Railro.ad Con
Nection to Saluda Must Act
Staff Correspondence Herald & News.
Saluda. Aug. 8.-If Newberrv wants
a railroad or trollev line to Saluda,
and on to Edetield and Augusta, now
is the time for the people of Newber
ry to get busy. On Tuesday morning
of this week a meeting of the citizens
of Saluda was held in connection with
the matter of building a railroad from
Sal'uda to Greenwood. It may be too
late now for Newberry to get this
road, because Saluda is determined
to have a railroad, and in the very
near future, and Greenwood has been
active in -her efforts to have it run
to Greenwood. The matter is well I
under way, and the people over here
are confident that the Greenwood-Sa
luda railroad is assured, and that it is
only a matter of a short time before i
it will be in actual operation.
But .there is another project to
build a trolley line through Saluda i
which it would be well for Newberry I
to consider 'before it is too late. Sev- I
eral days ago a meeting of the citiz
ens of Edgefield was held and the
matter of building a. trolley line dis- I
cussed. At that meeting committees 1
were appointed to look into various e
routes which were suggested and to<
see where the most aid could be secur
ed. Among the points suggested were
Plum Branch, Greenwood, Saluda,
Newberry and others. Of course, if 1
the line should go to Newberry, it
would pass through Saluda. The 1
plan is to build the line from North 4
Augusta through. Edgefield, on to one 1
of these points.. If the Greenwood pro
jeet has already gone to6 far, it seems
that Newberry would look into the
other project immediaftelf and see to
it that the trolley line is built to New
berry. But it might not be too late to
induce the citizens of Saluda to de
cide upon the building of their rail
road to Newberry, if the proper en
couragement were secured from New- 1
Certain it is, that if it is too late,
Newberry should see to it that she
does not miss the trolley line. The
citizens of Edgefield seem -to be ~in
earnest, and are going ahead to see
what point wants the line, and what
point is willing to aid in building it.
There 5. no section of the south
with greater possibilities than the see
tion of country from the Columbia '
and Greenville division of the South
ern across to the line between Colum
bia and Augusta. A railroad or trvlley
line through here is bound to come.
It is only a question of time. From
Newberry's standpoint, the trouble
now is that if a railroad is built from
Greenwood to 'Saluda firts, -trolley
lines or railroad lines coming from the
Efgfield side of the .county would
find it easier simply to come to Saluda
and conneet here with the line to
iNow is. the time for Newberry to
take up these matters. It will soon be
too late. One has to spend only a
few days here to become convinced
that .the people mean business, and
that they are 'determined to have a
railroad. And the road when
built will be supported by one of the
finest sections of South Carolina, and
will be of ineaculable advantage to
the point to which it is' built.
Newberry has the greatest oppor
tunity now to go to work and accom
plish something since the Seaboard
was allowed to build through the up
per section of the county without corn
ing to the c.ounty seat.
It was stated in Edgefield that the
resolutions adopted 'at the meeting
h4d there would be forwarded to
Newberry so that Newberry might
put dierself on record.1
The criminal court is in session
here. There .is 'a heavier 'doeket than
usual, .and a large number of ca.pital
cases. The case against young Tay
lor, who killed his father a short time
ago, will not be tried at this term.
The crops are fine in this county.
The people all the way from Newber
rv to Johnston, through Saluda. say
tey have the best corn crop in many
years, and the cotton crop, while in
some inst-ances it is somewhat late,
is far above the average. A gentle
man sixty-five years old, who lives.
near .Batesburg, said yesterday that
that there was more corn planted in
his seetion than he had ever known,
and the crop was the best for many
years. He said that one planter near
Ridge Spring had fifty acres of corn
from whieh he would gather 2500
bushels. The planters in the sandy
country .along the Ridge, he said, h'ad
within the last few years adopted a
new method of using fertilizers, and
it had proven very successful. Instead
of putting all the fertilizer in the
ground many of them put only a sinall
quantity in t'he ground, and then
places fertilizer around the growimg
plants. from time to time. By this
method. he said. the yields had been
FOR A HOSPITAL.
Physicians Confer with Committee
Everything Looks Encour
As stated in Tuesday's Herald and
N'ews. a meeting of the special com
mittee appointed by the Chamber of
Commerce to secure information in
regard to the hospital, which The
Ee-rald and News has been advocat
ing, was held in the Chamber of Com
neree rooms with the physicians of
'he city Tuesday afternoon..
Dhe committee is composed of
. B. Cromer, J. B. Hunter and F.
.T. Martin. Ten out of the thirteen
physicians in the city in active prac
,ice were present with this committee
mnd the others would ihave been there
>ut for the fact that they had urgent
-alls at that hour.
The sentiment of the physicians,
pho at.tended the conference. was
inanimously in favor of the estab
ishmetnt of a ihospital in the city.
rhey also agreed that in' their opin
on the project would be feasible and
)racticable and of great benefit in
he successful treatment of diseases.
qothing, of course, definite was 'done
)perating and as soon as-this informa
ion is in hand, another meeting will
ee will write to the management of
ome private hospitals in different
ities- of the state and ascertain the
ost of building as well as (bhe cost of
>perating and as.soon as this eommis
ion is in hand, another meeting will
>e held with the physicians, and it is
rery probable that definite action will
)e taken in the near future looking
o the erection of a hospital in New
There can be no doubt in the mind
)f anyone that a hospital is needed
iere, and that it would be a source of
-reat good to the eommunity, and we
tre satisfied that our broad-minded
d liberal citizens, who have the
noans, will not hesitate to co-operate
vith the physicians in the purchase
>f a lot and the erection of suitable
>uildings, 'and that the means will be
>rovided for the current expenses for
-ueh an institation.
Of course it is not expected, at least
t the 'beginnirig, that it will. be a
aying institution in dollars and
ents, and. it is not with that "purpose
n view that the matter has been agi
ated at all, but 'with a view of being
ble to care for those, who .neead hos
ital treatment and who are sick and.
yrobably do not :have the means to go
ibroad to more expensive hospitals.
The Herald and 'News hopes tilat
lefinite action wil-l 'be taken 'in Jhe
Death of Miss Gordan Weeks.

Miss Weeks 'had been in bad health
or sever~al years and had spent a por
ion of the time in recent years in a
sanitorium .in the 'hope that her
ealth might -be restored. During the
ammer, however, she was spending
he time with her sister on the Bay.
[t was not known that she was so ill,
mnd the news of her death was a shock
: her relatives in Newberry,
Miss Weeks was a native of Clar
ndon county, 'but had spent some
rears in Newb'erry, where she had
nany friends. She was about thirty
rears of age and is survived by her

be commended. We had hoped the

by the recent legislature would resul
in the consolidabion of some of oui
rural districts and ' give ut
better school facilities and remov4
the excuse, which many of our bes
and most prosperous farmers give a
a reason for moving to town. In fact
our understanding of the high sehoo
law was, that it was intended to buib
up good schools in the rural districts
but it. seems that not only. in New
berry, but in other counties, the pro
visions of the act have been taken ad
vntage of by towns in which they al
ready had good schools.. Of cours
we are delighted that 'Prosperity anm
Little Mountain are -to have the -bene

we desire to see consolidation of som
of the rural districts so as to have
good high school in different section

and move to the towns in order t<

i ped with nany specimens of agricul
ture -ro.wn on the farms at Clemson
Colle-e as well as articles manufac
tured in the other departments of the
institution, and are making a tour of
the state in order that the work at
Clemson may be brought home to
many farmers. who have not had the
opp ortunity to visit the institution
and tht they may thus be given a
practical demonstration of what is
I I being done there. Along withi these
ears are several professors, who will
lecture on subjeets pertaining to farm
ing and some kindred subjects in
which the farmers especially ought
to be interested. In faet, the purpose
of these institutes, 'as -they are term
ed, is to give the farmers such infor
mbation as may be valuable to thei
in the pursuit of their vocations.
There should be a large attendance
of the farmers of 'this county both
at the Prosperity meeting today and at
the Newberry meeting tomorrow.
As we understand it, the meetings
wil, begin at 11 o'clock and we pre
sume will be held and the lectures de
livered in the court house. he ears,
of course, will be at the union station
and will be open for those who desire

the farmers will take advantage of
these opportunities to receive instruc

Prof. Harper says in the circulars
which 'he sent out sometime ago:
"We will have a number of things
in our cars of interest to the farmers.
