WRITES INTERESTING LETTER.
Mr. W. P. Houseal, Formerly of The
Herald and News Writes of
The Herald and News takes pleas
ure in presenting the accompanying
letter from Mr. W. P. Houseal. He
did not write it foi publication or for
the purpose of making a correction,
but, as he says, to express his pleas
ure that Mr. John Wicker had care
ful attention -in his dying hours. It is
entirely proper that it should be -prin
ted in The Herald and News, and we
have secured his permisslon to do so.
It will be remembered that Mr.
Houseal was our partner from 1887
to 1894 and for several years there
after was closely associated with the
office. the Lutheran Visitor havin2
been published in our of9ce for sev
eral yea-!. after 1894. This letter
helps to keel) the record straight and
to Live soine history which we are
satisfied mill be read with interest by
many people in Newberry.
Columbia, S. C., Aug 13th.
Col. E. H. Aull,
Newberry, S. C.
Dear Mr. Aull:
I am glad to read your tribute to
.he memory of John Wicker in The
Herald and News this a. m. It car
ries my memory back to '87 and the
work in the office as performed by
him--ever faithful and doing the
best he coul. His constaney was a
.emarkable trait of character that he
nessessed-ah Y nn hand for the
41v7s work. ii. matter what the con
ditions were as to weather or physical
d.i~L :::jless he was simply too ill
to stand upon his feet.
Then it is to him incidentally that
I am a printer. I took the place he
vacted in December, 1872, to go into
an enterprise which did not succeed.
At this point 'here is an error in the
sket:h. He b';ran his apprenticeship
in 1866 (or '65) on the Herald and
served about seven years. When the
enrerprise failed-a circus company
or-1:nized in Newberry in Deeember,
1872-on account of snow and ice en
countered in the tour of the ipper
counties, and John Wicker not re
turninz in time for the New Year, Mr.
Thos. F. Greneker sent me a message
by my father on the 8th of January,
1S73, that he needed an apprentice,
and I began work the next day and
set my first type at 10 a. m. after hav
ing learned the "boxes.'' John Wick
er did work for Mr. R. H. Greneker in
1873, but it was in connection with
the partnership of Slider & Greneker,
who ' began the purblication of The
Progressive Age on February 14,
1873. Wicker had served his full time
of seven years, although it was not
considered the apprentice term at that
time as former ly in printing offices.
I would like to have helped smooth
hs .dying pillow.
Win. P. Houseal.
JEREY CASE AFFIRMD.
Supreme Court Refused New Trial to
J. C. Perry-Motion ror Rear
The supreme court has decided the
appeal case of J. C. Perry, of Saluda
county, and has refused to grant him
a new trial.
It will be remembered that Perry
is the man who killed a young Mr.
Wills and was tried for murder. and
convicted of manslaughter with rec
ommendation to mercy and was sen
tenced to five years. An appeal was
taken to the supreme court, but that
tribunal refused to change the sen
tence or verdict of the lower court.
We notice now that through his at
torney the supreme court has issued
an order .staying the remittitur for
the purpose of determining whether
or not a rehearing would be granted,
Newberry Boy Makes Good.
It is always a pleasu.re to hear of
Newberry boys "making good."
Charles Roberts Seabrook is one of
them. He is going ahead rapidly. Af
ter filling a responsible position with
leading architects of Norfolk, Va., for
about eighteen months, he was call
ed by the Maryland Portland CementI
Company to Hagerstown, Md., to hold
the architectural end of the construc
tion of its great .$300,000 plant near
that city. The headquarters of Major
Lewis are at Leeds. Alabama, and a
few weeks ago your g Seabrook was
temprarly transferred to Leeds, to
there continue the designing for the
Hagerstown plant. ______

of his corn crop. He has cotton,

WHITMIRE TO GREER.
Proposed Road Connecting Seaboard
Plan for Bi1ding.
The construction of a railroad from
Whitinire. on the Seaboard Air Line,
to (Jreer. on the Southern. a distance
of (io miles. is now proposed. Mr.
Lowiidles J. Browning. ot Sedalia, is
the noving spirit behind the proposi
tion. and although nothing definite
has been decided upon he believes
that his plans are feasible and can be
easily carried through. The proposed
route is through a very fine farming
seetion, and would open up a territory
that is badly in need of railroad facil
Mr. Brownin-_,'s idea. according to
The Union Times of this week. is to
build a railroad with Whitmire. on
the Seaboard. and Greer, on the main
line of the Southern, as terminals,
crossing the Charleston and Wesfern
Carolina road at Woodruff. The post
offices along the proposed route at the
present time are: Whitmire, Sedalia,
Cross Keys, Cross Anchor, Hobbyville
Cashville, Reidville and Greer. The
line would be in Union, Spartanburg
and Greenville counties. It . would
reach within easy distance of several
cotton mills, the Glenn-Lowry Mills
being situated at Whitmire and the
Enoree Mills and Pelham Mills not
Mr. Browning claims that of the
sixty miles. fifty-five of them could
be graded with a two-horse plow, so
level is the ecuntry. and the ouly tres
'n the entire route would be at
Whitmire. There are no streams to
cross. the line following the ridge be
tween Enoree and Tyger rivers.
Because of the easy grading it is
estimated that the cost of construe
tion would be comparatively small. It
is calculated that the grading could
be done at the nominal cost of $1,500
per mile. The rolling stock would
cost approximately $10,000 a mile,
bringing the total cost of construe
tion and equipment up to not exceed
Mr. Browning's plan is to raise
$150,000 in cash subscriptions and
float bonds for $600.000. He has al
ready placed $300,000 of the bonds
and if the cash subscriptions of $150,
000 ean be raised the remaining$300.
000 in bonds can be floated without
any trouble and the road will be built.
The above is from the Greenville
News of Saturday. This road is head
ed in the right direction, an2d if it
should be built, it is so much more
the reason why the road, which we
have said so much about from Angus
.ta to Whitmire, could be pushed.
It would seem from this statement
from the Greenville News that the
persons behind that enterprise mean
business. A road across the country
tt r ards 'Augus*h will open 'a section
of the state that is sadly in need of
railroad facilities. We should be
very glad to see this road built, be
ause if it is, it will be eventually ex
tended to Newberry even if our rail
road enterprises and projects between
Whitmire and Augusta, whikh are
now being agitated, should fail
