'"THE DARK CORNER.".
The well known Washington cor
respondent and writer, Zach 'Mc
Ghee, is soon to issue a novel deal
ing with the great educational prob
lems in this State and elsewhere,
and it is safe to say that it will be
interesting to the people of this
county. The title of the work is
"The Dark Corner," and it might
designate any of the thinly settled
sections of the South. It is teem
ing with interest from first to last,
having a delicate touch of pathos
throughout. It will undoubtedly
arouse discussion as to the many
school problems the country school
teacher is subject to. It is a novel
with a purpose-clearly'defined and
absolute. The writer is a well
known man of this State who is
making Washington his home and
his work will undoubtedly have a
It will be on sale in this county
at the prominent stores where books
are handled. and it will make an
excellent Christmas gift-one whIch
will not only charm the recipient,
but will interest the reader.
It is a novel without a "carpet
bag villian," and withont a "skin
flint" from the East; it is South
ern-Southern from the point of
view that it has its setting down
South, but it can be applied to any
section where the country school
teacher or the city school teacher
lives. The book is published by
the Grafton Press, New York City.
0.0. & 0. WILL RUN LINE TO
A question of much interest in
* Spartanburg at this time is what
route the Caroline, Clinchfiel'd and
Ohio will take out of this city to
wards the south. It is known that
3ines have been run out of here to
* wards Broad river, and down that
stream to Columbia. Now it is report
ed that engineering -parties will .e
started from this city to put a line
between Spartanburg and Newberry.
It is said this line will pass through
much good and undeveloped country.
It is generally accepted now that the
C. C. & 0. will build its own line
Newberry should be alert and look
after this matter. Some time ago a
committee was appointed to confer
with the authorities of this road look
ing to its coming this way. If the ob
* jeetive point is Augusta and the road
comes to Union Newberry is on an
air line and the road would come by
Whitmire, Newberry, Saluda and
) This wound open a fine country
greatly in need of railroad facilities.
Besides it would reach several very
good coaling stations. It has been
understood that for the present the
tracks of C. & W. C would be used to
get out of Spartanburg but this state
ment from Spartanburg is to the ef
fect that the intention of the com
pany is to build its own road.
Rev. E. 0. Watson, secretary of
the Methodist conference, whieh is
in session in Laurens offered a reso
lution yesterday to put the church
organ, The Southern Christian Advo
cate, in the homes of the Methodist
free, and that the conference pay for
it. What is the matter with our good
brother? Does he want our church
paper put on the same footing with
"Comfort?"' If the Advocate is
worth taking out of the office, it is
certainly worth paying for-Sumter
We do not understand the proposi
tion of Dr. Watson to be to put the
paper in the hands of each family
free but to make an assessment on the
membership equal to the subscription
price of the paper printed at cost so
that it might be sent to each Metho
dist family in this State.
It would be an altogether differ
ent proposition from "Comfort'' and
would not depend upon advertise
ments for it.s maintenance.
THE LINOTYPE MACHINE.
We clip the following from the
Florence Times. which has just put
in a Linotype machine: "Our good
Brother Wolfe stands ready to offer
congrat.ulationls or syrnpathy. as we
may require, on the Linotype. We
appresiate thie good spirit of our
friend. So far, we feel that it is
to be congratulations, but you never
know. we are having our troubles as
well as our triumphs.'" For. the en
couragement of The Times we will
say that The Times and Democrat
has been using a Linotype machine
for nearly two years, and we could
not get along without it. In the hands
of an expert it is a thing of beauty
and a joy forever. The Times and
Democrat's machine is operated by
a gentleman who is an expert at hand
ling them.-Orangeburg Times and
We have had one of these machines
for nearly five years and would not
like to be without one and do not
see how we could get along without
one since we have become accustom
ed to it and we have lost very little
*me with it during that time. In fact
not more than two days at any time
and only once or twice then but when
it does get a part broken you must
just wait until you ca.n get a dupli
cate from the factory.
We had that experience last week.
Those experiences will come to all
one machine offices. But it is a great p
machine and we could not manage U
Mr. J. T. Bingham in his "Adieu"
in the last issue of the Chester Lan
"But one of my chief regrets is
that, in the language of a certain
neglected boy when arraigned in
court, "I ain't never had no chance"
-to do myself or the paper justice
editorially. I have always craved an
opportunity, if for only a short while,
to edit a newspaper, without being all
the time overwhelmed with business
management and the multitude of
other demands that claimed my whole
time, making editorial work a mere -
incident and requiring the writing to
be done often under the most unfav
orable conditions. I regret also that -
there are a thousand things which .I
had in mind to say that remain un
said. But possibly it is better so."
We have often felt the same regret.
It may be that we could not have
done any better but some, how the i
country editor who has everything
to look after frequently has to have
his mind on how to collect a few dol
lars while laboring to write his edi
torials and important locals and we
have always felt that if we had only
the writing to do that we mighit make ""
a better paper. At any rate, like Mr. A
Bigham, we would like to try itA

take hold of this suggestion. m
Several committees from city coun
cil and the chamber of commerce
were very act.ive about. a year or more
ago on the widening of several streets
in the fire district. If they have
been widened we have failed to ob

not go to work and secure a wagon
