KNOCKING THE EDITOR.
.11! yoii don't just like every!hing
you see in your home paper, go
around the stroots mud liowi. The
editor is never supposed to make u
mistake, and of eourso ennnot <lo so.
Other people can, but the editor is
ubiquitous, omniscient, mnipresent,
"omnivorous." If yr>u can't see a
good point, don't fail to see a had
one. It' a thousand pleasant things
are said of people, hunt for something
unpleasant, If you don't find
it howl some, more; if you do, howl
anyway. Never mind yvir own business;
watch for something to find
fault with in some other man's
business. This will make, you great.
? ICIherlon Star.
t rnler this standard there are very
few in l his community who have attained
greatness. In this community
everybody attends to his own
business and never has time to
know what other people are doing.
We have no one who is idle, ajid
therefore there is no mischief mode.
Kveryhody says pleasant things about
everybody else, and no one ever finds
fault hni we all have pleasant words
even for our enemies, that is if anybody
had time to have an enemy.
Kveryhody likes everything he sees
in the paper and if there should be
anything in I he paper lie doesn't like
lie tails to see it. Nobody stands on
the street corner mid therefore there
are no howlers. W'c are afraid that
wo cannot claim any greatness if
we are to he measured by the. standard
ol the Klhcrlon Star. Wonder
if there are any people in Newberry
who til the description and standard
of ureal iless set by I ho Klberloii
Star. Nobody has a hammer in
"Nowberry so far as we know.

I lie Herald and Xews had the returns
and an extra printed giving
the tabulated vote by seven o'clock
sullicientlv complete to give the result
as to Hie county. Several precincts
were missing but we made no
special eOort to get them and tliev
did not change the result. Hut nobody
applauded The Herald and
Xeus though the crowds were around
the ollico iu full force. We have
beon so iu the habit of doing this
for the past twenty years that no
one seemed to think it extraordinary
or more than thev expected. Tt was
just what every body expected. If
"we had not done so probably there
would have boon kicking and knocking,
but as wo did it nobody applauded
or thought it more than we
ought to do. No doubt, they appreciated
it as much as if they had
made a noise about it.

we hope everybody can get down to
business and those who have been

We have heard that Senator Till>nan
remarked some time ago that if1

I). Smith were elected to the U. S.
senate I lie scat would not be vacant.
PIw>rc is no doubt lliat the statement

The seat will not be vacant. Senator
Smith is a man of ability and
will make his presence felt in the senate.
THE AMERICAN HUSBAND IS
THE BEST IN THE WORLD.
His Wife is the Happiest Woman
The American husband is the best
in the world says the Rev. Charles
A.tked, I). 1)., in the November New
Lien Woman's Magazine. He thinks
more of his wife, makes more of his
wife, gives more to his wife, than
any other husband Mte world has
ever known. Whether ho has the
best wife in t ho world?bnt (hat is
another story, Certainly the American
woman has the most favored lot
which has yet fallen to a human being.
She has more to make her Impp\'?in
||(.|- own phrase, to give her
"a good lime," than any other creature
on the face of the earth. She lias
less drudgery and more leisure than
uny oil her woman. She h;i < more
money to spend and better tilings on
which to spend it. She has more freedom,
independence, more power of
initiative and of self-direction. She
is a person of importance?and she
knows it. The present writer is yet
seeking :i female, person between the
ages of seven and seventy upon this
conl incut who does not regard herself
as of the greatest consequence
in the scheme of things. She quicllv
assumes lliat she is somebody. The
assumption is warranted in fad and
conceded in practice. The American
woman is, up lo the present moment,
(bid's best piece of work, and there
are no visible indications of outside
improvements upon the product.
The American girl can protect lierselI.
She is not as easily led aslrav
as the girl of many other countries.
She is uo| as "innocent." in the absurd
and con veil I iona I meaning of
that much-abused word. She knows
more. She can run alone. Slic is more
' <:.:;>!< Icly mistress of hcisclf. There
is a higher standard of scvual morality
in this country than in l lie old
lands. I his may be safely affirmed
in the face of ten thousand divorce
scandals and all the. headlines of a
<en-at ion loving press. Kor every unhappy
uiarriaue of which the papers
speak, there are a thousand about
which it says nothing.
I'Ul in the last analysis the American
woman lias a better time than
any other woman because she is?an
To Clean Furs.
Furs may be readily cleaned at
home by rubbing them wit; 1 bran.

Spread the fur on table, put paper
underneath, and rub it well with

To Make a Bolster Roll.
T made my own bolster roll from
a discarded cheese box and a few
thin strips of wood. The cheese box,
of which only the top and bottom
circles were used, was twelve inches
in diameter, and the strips fiftvIhree
inches long. The. strips were
nailed around I he edges of the circles
so as (o form a hollow cylinder
of slate, with an opening on one
side large enough to tuck the pillows
away mlo while the Holster was iu
use. A piece of heavy wire clolliesline
formed a circle about the center
of the cylinder, lo give -tren^Hi
and prevent sagging. First the ends
of I he bolster were padded. Ilien the
cylinder was covered, both inside and
out, with coarse white muslin, when
il was ready for tIre final decorative
touches.?New Tdea Woman's Magazine.
