Has Achieved Snccess.
The Herald and News is always
glad to learn of the success of the
young men who go out into the world
from Newberry county.
In a recent issue of the Spartan-'
burg Journal it was stated:
''The V. M. C. A. congress had its
third and last annual meeting for the
summer Thursday night, and it was
excellent in every respect. The youm*
men represented the candidates for
the legislature, and made some capital
speeches. The improvement in
the speaking of these young congressmen
is so great that it furnishes a
most impressive object lesson of the
possibilities afforded by this congress."
Among the most excellent
speeches mentioned by the Journal is
one by Mr. Y. J. Boozer.
Mr. Boozer is a youmr man who
went from this county to Spartanburg
some five years ago. lie was reared
in No. 0 township, hut went to Spartanburg
from Kinards, where his
father, Mr. D. L. Boozer, now lives.
lie started in Sparlanburcr on a
small salary, hut his energy and industry
have brought him to the front,
and lie is now half owner in the Rigby
Manufacturing company, a lumber
and general wood working concern,
and is president of the company.
Some time ago lie received a most
tlattering offer to go to Virginia
with one of the large concerns there
in the same business, and he now has
this offer under consideration.
Mr. Boozer's many friends in this
countv are proud of the merited success
which he has achieved.
