The Herald and News finds itself
obliged to print a 16 page paper to
day in order to handle the advertise
ments and give the readers the usual
amount of reading matter.
We devote one page to the message
of President Roosevelt, another page
is devoted to a Christmas story, and
on page number one will be found a
beautiful Christmas story written es
pecially for The Herald and News
by Miss Mae Lucile Smith.
In addition to these special features
we give the ordinary news of the day
regarding the State. county. and lo
cal happenings. The advertisements
will also be found interesting and one
thing especially to be noted is that
every merchant has on a great reduc
tion sale and Santa Claus has mimer
-us headquarters. It should be very
easy for those who desire to purchase
Christmas goods and who want to
find out where Santa Claus lives to
You can read all of the ninety-six
columns in this issue of The Herald

THE STREET PAVING.
The Southern Paving and Construe
tion Company began work on the
street paving in Newberry on Mon
4ay morning. They went at it like
people who knew what they were
about and the work has been pushed
very rapidly during the week.
Caldwell street from Friend to
Main is about ready for the vitrified
brick, the foundation having been
made. The great pity is that we have
not the money in hand to have more
of this work done while the equip.
ment is here.
Th-ere is one strip so to speak that
should be included in this cntract.
This is from the postoffice o- Cald
well street across Friend street. In
other words we ;nean~ that t"e paving
should start on the South side of
Friend street instead of the North
side. This would give us a good
street from the public square to the
We understand that the city couni
cil and the special committee in
charge of this work all agree that
this should be put down at this time
but they hesitate because they feet'
they have not the money. This will
necessitate the spending about $300
more, and we hope the city council
will not let so imporant a portion
of the street go unpaved for the pal
try sum of $300. It would add very
greatly to the appearance of the lit
tle portion that is contracted for and
the purpose of this work is to give
practical demonstration to the peo
p1 of the advantages of first class
We are satisfied that the citizen3
of the city would almost unanimously
gndorse the expending of this addi
'tional $300 to carry the paved street
-up to the postoffice.
The indications all point to first;
class work on the part of the South,
ern Paving and Construction Com
pany, and as we have said the gentle-;
men in charge of the work seem o
know what they are about.
BETTER GO SLOW.
"It is a bad time to increase pub
lic expenses. There are always;
schemes on foot to spend the taxes,
.and the next legislature will be con
fronted with a number of them. One*
of the biggest propositions in this
line is the scheme for the ~establish
mnent of three fitting or preparat6ryv
schools for Clemson college-three
agricultural high schools, to be locat
ed in different sections of the State.
A number of prominent men have met
and outlined the whole p)lan. The
cost, as estimated by them, is to be
somewhere about $210,000.
Very gQod reasons can be adduced
in favor of such schools. It is not
difficult to sIhow how they would ac
complish good. So it might be said
of hundreds of other things that
might be done if the State just had
an unlimited amount of money. But
it hasn't: and the State must do like
individuals are compelled to do. One
can tildkr.iot a: thtdidadthings that
would setbtitrt the .oinfort and
happiness of his family-things that
would be really helpful to them mf
many ways. But if he cannot afford
to get these things he has to do with
.ou them. So it must be with the
South Carolina has' debt enough
and taxes enough already. She had
better go slow awhile.''
The above is from the Newberry

4ut of business! If the friends of
school for higher education want
them. why should they nio bild and
cuip ithem? The fact: are th1ousand1
of 1olhir, are -qIlanldered every vear
in the name of higher edneation when
the common schools of the country
are suffering for adequate support.
The whole thing is wrong in principle,
and we should not only try to induce
some people to go slow, but they
should be made to turn around and
go the other way.-Greenwood Jour
This is very true. It has not been
so many moons aco. however. when
the Observer opposed indirectly at
least the election of members of the
legislature who stood and fought for
these very things-an economical ad
ministration and the ealling of a. halt
on big appropriations for higher
learning by the State. And favored
the election of those on record stand
ing for all4hese appropriations. The
legislature has recently put itself on
record not only of giving all that was
asked for established institutions of
higher learning but of establishing
new institutions of like character.
There is no use to oppose these
things if you are going to send men
to the legislature who favor them and
when your taxes have to be paid why
you should walk up like a little man
and contribute your part with a smile.
Agricultural schools are alright
but it will take money to build them,
And then when they are built they
will be put in the towns and cities
where there are already good schools.
Why not let Clemson establish a
number of these schools out of the
surplus from her income.
The report of the chairman of the
board last year showed that nearly
$75,000 had been spent in one year in
permanent improvements. She will
scarcely need permanent improve
ments on so large a. scale every year
and then the income is increasing.
This would be a good way to keep
from reporting a surplus.
An interesting relic was presented
to the Masonic lodge on last Monday
night in the shape of a plate taken
from the corner ston3 of the court
house erected in Newberry in 1823 on
the^ site now occupied by the old
court house. It is a great pity there
were. not some fitting ceremonies in
connttion with the present hand
