Entered at the Postoffice at New
berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Fridav. December 18, 190.
We are very much gratified that
eitv council has decided to extend the
laying of vitrified brick in Caldwell
street across Friend street to tha post
office. and we are confident that this
action of council will be heartily a,0
proved/and commended by the people
of Newberry. The thoroughfare
from Main street to the post office is
one of the most important and one of
the most generally used in the city.
The Aerald and News will publish
its issue of December 25 on Wednes
day night. December 23. In accord
ance with our custom for a number
of yeai-s past, we will omit one issue
Christmas week, the next issue after
next Wednesday night appearing on
Friday, January 1. We would ap
preciate it if advertisers and cor
respondents would bear this in mind.
The salary of the mayor has been
increased from four hundred dollars
to six hundred dollars per year. Cities
smaller than Newberry in this State
have for some years been paying their
chief erecutives at least six hundred
dollars a year, and Newberry can cer
tainly afford to pay its mayor this
"The Dark Corner," by Za6h Mc
Ghee, the talented and versatile
Washington correspondent, is a well
written story. The style is excellent,
and the plot holds the interest of the
reader throughout. It is a South Car
olina novel, and for that reason is all
the more nteresting to South Car
We are glad to say, however, that
no longer in this sction of South
CArolina is there a "dark corner'' of
the charaeter which Mr. McGhee de
picts. It is true, however, that in
nearly every section of the South the
right kind of education is held too

SCOURT HOUSE PARK.
Some time ago thre Civic association
had a landscape gardener to lay ofi
and suggest an arrangement for the
park around the new court house.
This work was to have been done
by Mr. Wieker, the present supervis
or, and the plans and specifications
were explained to him in detail. Ow
ing to the great amount of work nec
~essary upon the bridges ineident to
the freshets, Mr. Wicker has been un
able to pu+ t.he chain gang on this
work; therefore, it has not been done.
Mr. Wicker go'es out of office ear
ly in January and iif it is impossible
for him to have the wor odne eoerkf
for him to have the work done before
that time he will no doubt turn over
the plans and explain them to his
successor, and it is hoped that Mr.
Feagle will lose no time in doing
something for the square around the
new court house.
There should be some walks made
and grass planted, and the driving
across the side walk and into the
court house lot should be stopped.
The South is fast beginning to rea
lizie that its soil is adapted to the cul
tivation of many products whieh our
ancestors ,thought were necessarily
Dr. W. G. Houseal has proven this
by the luxuriant and delicious celery
hie has this season grown in his gar
den. The doctor left two bunches of
this celery in The Herald and News
office yesterday that were simply sup
erb. One- was the Paris Rose Rib~
variety, the other the famous White
Plume variety, and this editor, who
considers himself somewhat of a con
noisseur in the celery line! ean say
that it was as fine as any imported
Kalamazoo celery he has ever seen. It
is crisp and juicy and possesses a fine
Dr. Houseal has quite a gaanity of
this celery in his garden, and it was
raised w:'ithout any more extra cars
than any other fine vegetable couli
be raised. He will be pleased to tel
any one who desires to know, his plar
and method of raising this celery.
Judging from what Dr. Houseal ha.
done--and there are several others
not only in Newberry but in othe'
tow~ns of the State whio have als<
made a success in celery growing
there should be no need of the largi
