"COUNTY COURT HOUSE."
If (ho new court house wore a department
building in tin* capital of
a great nation there might ho some
excuse Cor hihtdliug it. 11 the new
court house wore a ton cent store in
any kind of a town, llrere would he
reason for advertising it.
But a court house, f.non ns Is the

speaks I'or itself. When the
building is completed we shall take
pleasure in telling our friends that
it is the court house erected by the
people of Newberry county at a cost
of something like fifty thousand dollars.
We beTifivc that all the citizens
of Newberry will lake as: especial
pride in toiling visitors what the

has n'> couuly court. Il is true
that il is a courl house, and that il
luis been creeled by the people ol

eoiut house. If. however, "Couuly
Court Mouse" means a court house
owned bv tin unty. why not have
none further and said : "Courl House

I,el us lake down the sign, ounI

fits ill with a building of the si/.o
and proportions and importance of
lire new court bouse. It is a mistakft
that il was ever pul on ihe building,

Surel\ the new court house does
not need a sign. Certain il is that

of Ihe building. Wherefore,

Writing to Himself.
"Some nie 11 on the road write letters
to themselves before they get to
I In* next hotel, so they will appeal
'important.' when they register and
ask for their mail." said a hotel
clerk. 4 'but lhat isn't always the
reason. We soon catch on to them,
because we see their handwriting on
the register and on their mail, and 1
noticed it once in a man whom I
finally got to know very well.
"lie wasn't the kind of fellow who
cared anything about appearing 4 import
ant,* I found out. so I asked him
why he did it. The explanation was
very simple. lie had a miserable
memory, a.id when he was in auolhei
town ami would think of something
he had to do in Columbus he would
ivrile it "ii a slip of paper and mail
il to himself. lie didn I put th.?
.memorandum in his pocket for feai
be would forget about putting it
"lie said he had used the plan for
a long time, always writing ahead il
lltere was something In another town
be wanted to remember particularly,
<and said il was the best plan he had
ever figured out lo keep from forgetling
things." Columbus Hispateh.

Fur some time the Mexican papers
have been attacking; the Transvias
Fleelrieos, chiefly on the ground of
their friyhtfnl annual slauy'hter, says
I!n* New York Post, I'll Diario has
a c,-i-v- of pictures showing a tall

"In my school days," said a story
teller who was Irving to illustrate
the aihsnrdity and futility of unfounded
fears, "wo used to have a
lecture every Friday afternoon. One
day the lecturer was a yeoloyist, and
chose Niagara Falls for his topic.
"He told us about the geological
formation of the falls, and described
the dill'erenl periods to be trace 1
in the yoryc. and I hen went on to
say I hat the falls were slowly wearing
back toward Buffalo, and that in
the course of some two hundred
thousand years they would have worn
back to Kric. Pa., and that town
would be left liiyh and dry.

Allhoiiyh the tramp had seen a
