Want to Relieve Wants of the Needy
In Newberry as Far as in Their
Some time ago a committee was ap-1
pointed by Newberry lodge, No. 1103,
B. P. 0. Elks, to confer with the min
isters of Newberry in regard to pro
viding a Christmas tree for the needy
of Newberry. This committee held ai
meeting with the pastors, and it was
the opinion of the preachers that the
needy could be betterreached in oth
er ways than by the Christmas tre-.
'The committee. then, acting upon thfis1
opinion of the pastors, requested the
pastors to furnish a list of all the
needy of whom they knew, and tiae
ministers are, of course, gladly do'ai
so. Such help as the lodge is able to
give will be given, and all who know
of any poor needing help are reques
ed to notifyv this committee, composed
of Messrs. Frank R. Hunter, Fred. H.
Dominick and C. P. Pelham.
Ready at all times to dispense such
charity as it is able, the lodge is es
pecially anxious at this glad season~
to use its every endeavor to relieve
the suffering which comes from want.

These are a second crop, and Mr.
Lester thinks he will have enough to
make a plum pudding for Christmas.L

Residences in Newberry More Than
Fifty Years Ago-Col. W. Y.
It is interesting to those who lived
in those days and should be even more
interesting to those of the younger
generation to know something of theii
town and coun.ty in the olden day-.
Judge James M. Crosson, who former
ly edited this paper, and who non
lives in Texas, for several years fur
nished The Herald and News a series
of articles giving his recollections
dealing with men and places and ev
ents of many years ago. Mr. Cros
son's letters were always entertaining
and valuable, and were eagerly read.
It is the purpose of The Herald and
News to seek to secure from others
their recollections of the town and
county of Newberry in the drs thit
are rapidlv passing from memor. .
Much valuable history has been re
corded of the town and county, but
history can only deal with the larger
events. It would be' impossible for
instance, for it to deal with the loca
tion of the various residences in
Newberry half a century or more ago,
or the exact location of the business
houses, and thousands of incidents of
human interest occurring in the town
and throughout the county the rela
tion of which would entertain those
who would recall them and be of value
tj those who are younger, and which
it would be well to record.
With this purpose in view, Col. W.
Y. Fair was asked by The Herald and
News to give its readers some of his
recollections of the Newberry of more
than half a century ago, and he
readily consented. Of course, Col.
Fair was very young at that time. but
he has an accurate memory, and his
recollections of the Newberry of
those days are interesting and valu.
able. His first interview deals with
the residence sections of the town. In
the next issue will appear some re
collections from Col. Fair of the busi
ness section, and it is hoped to ob
tain subsequent interviews with him,
and, as stated, with others, deal
ing with particular localities both in
the town and county and with inci
dents connected with the lives of
Newberrians of the fifties and before
Mr. Fair said that at the period
with which this article deals-in and
around 1854-Newherry was a veryv
small town, but that it was spread
prac.tically as much as it now is. The
last house in Caldwell street on the
right hand side, as one went from
the court house towards the edge of
the town limits, was that of Solomoni
P. Kinard, located in that pa.rt of
the city whic*h is now known as Gravel
Town. Taking the residences on that
side of the street, coming towards the
centre of town, the next was tha.t of
T. F. Greneker. on the place where
T. Q.' Boozer later lived and where
Mrs. Boozer now lives, and the next
was the residence of Nathan A. Hun
teF-the same house in which Geo. W.
Summer now lives. This house has
been extensively remodeled since that
time, however. The next building was
the old First Baptist church, the
frame structure erected in 1831 and
located where the Baptist parsonage
now stands. This building was torn
down only recently, and the handsome
new structure erected on the corne1
of the lot, the parsonage being moved
upon the spot formerly occupied by
the old frame building. On the oth
er side of the street Jack Caldwell, as
he was familiarly called, lived where
Mrs. Robert H.. Wright now lives.
Where Mrs. A. P. Pifer now lives
was owned 'by W. R. Lane, and on the
Boundary street graded school lot
stood the residence of George Smith.
The residence now occupied by Mrs.
Ruff, in Boundary street, opposite
the Lutheran Church of the Redeem
er was the old Methodist circuit par
sonage. Next in Boundary streat, go
ing east, was the residence of Francis
B. Higgins, where Dr. James Mceh
tosh now lives. Then came the Chan
cellor Job Johnstone home, now oe
epeby Mrs. McCrary, Chancelloi
Johnstone owning extensively from
t':ere, with a few exceptions, out to
Crotwell 's. Between his home and
Crotwell 's lived Silas Johnstone and
B. J. Ramage. The Silas Johnstone
home has been removed. It stood
wvhere E. R. Hipp now lives.
Samuel Agnew, who was a mer
chant in Newberry, occupied the old
Agnew home, where L. W. Floyd has
erected his handsome new residence.
Robert Stewart lived in the old Stew
art home which yet stands, across the
street north from the Lutheran Church
of the Redeemer.
