TROUBLE AT CLMSON.
In another column we print a state
ment from Capt. J. C. Minus in ref
erence to conditions at Clemson Col
lege. It makes very interesting read
ing but it will be vell to have the
other side before judgment is passed
upon the statement which Capt.
The Heral dand News phoned to
Mr. Alan Johnstone, the president of
the board of trustees, and asked him
if he had any statement to make, and
that if he did 'we would be glad to
'have it. His reply was " I have no
statement to make."
A BOY'S SISTER.
Maud felt a glow of pleasure when
Mr. Wisner, who was rising to go,
told her how greatly he enjoyed the
evenings he passed at her house. It
was flatteringly pleasant to know that
her society was found agreeable by
the very interesting young electrical
engineer, who had recently come to
town as manager of the new trolley
line of which her father was part
"I am a most domestic person," -he
said, "and it's a real privilege to me
to be allowed to visit here informal
ly." He glanced appreciativ6ly at the
pretty picture,s, quantities of books,
and vases of flowers. "Do you know,
this attractive room reminds me of
our old library at home, where my
sister and I passed some of the hap
piest evenings of our lives. We used
to play checkers, read aloud, and have
all sorts of good times together. I
always feil that I owe a world of
gratitude to that dear sister of mine,
who kept me so well entertained at
home that I was never tempted to
join the boys who went down town
every night. There's nothing like a
good sister to keep a lad out of mis
chief, is there? I've .never had the
pleasure of meeting your brother. He
is out of town now, is he not ''
It was a careless question, asked
with no motive other than polite in
terest, but it brought the color surg
ing ino Maud 's face quite unexpect
"No, Arthur isn't away. He is out
a' good deal. I 'hope he will be home
tihe next time you come.''
A moment later, when Maud stood
alone, her cheeks were still burning
and she felt uncomfortable, as if she
had been sharply areproved. She re
membered with painful clearness the
many evenings, that Arthur fidgeted
restlessly about the ioom while she,
engrossed in a novel, had only looked
up long enough to inquire impatiently
why he could not sit still.
"Because," he had replied that
very evening, "it makes a fdllowv ner
vous to sit around with nothing to do
ways busy upstairs 'at his laboratory
'work a.nd you with your everlasting
reading, it's a pretty dull house, and
I think I'll go out where there 's
something doing." He 'had gone and
Mr. Wisner had come and had been
geeted with bright vivacity that
might hiave surprised Arthur, who
had left his sister .too absorbed in her
book to notice his sulky departure.
"I haven't the least idea where
Arthur went," she said .to herself,
drearily. "I never know where he is
eveniings. Mother wouldn't have
been so neglectful. She would have
kept him ~happy at home. I haven't
done what she would have expected
Her eyes filled with tears as she
thought of that dear one, who in
years gone by had filled the home
with the sunshine of 'love and har
"0 mother, forgive me," she said
softly. "I'll try to do bettter; I'll try
to do better."' -Kilbourne Cowles, in

I feel like some one ought to give
The Idler a rea'l good scolding or
kicking or bumping or something.
You know that was a good and timely
letter of inquiry and suggestion from
Inquirer, which will make thoughtful
people think and the thoughtless, who
will read, stand up and take notice,
and I never even thanked Inquirer
for helping me out and wren In
quirer a.aked, "May I come again?''
I did not have the common politeness
to answer. And then did you see the
nice compliment Inquirer paid me.
Said I was pretty well informed.
Well, thank you, Inquirer, and beg
pardon for not saying it before. My
old brain is some times slow of ac
tion and dull of comprehension, but
I want to assure you, Dear Inquirer,
that I appreciate what you say and
will be de-e-lighted to have you come
again. And if I cannot give you any
information you may desire I will pass
your questions on to the proper au
thority, and if we keep on asking
questions, we will wake up the right
authority after awhile.
Your questions and the suggestions
contained in them were alive and
pointed and up-to-date and should
How would it do to ask Prof.
Dreher to come up to Newberry and
talk with our board or suggest that
our board go to Columbia and talk
with him. I am sure he would be glad
to give information as to modern
and up-to-date equipment. He has
just been on a trip of investigation,
and then he has had seventeen years'
experience in Columbia.
But the red hot question now is the
selection of the lot. It is amusing to
hear the people express th-eir opinion.
I heard a man say the other day it
would be a great waste of the peo
ple's money if the board didn't se
lect a certain lot and he figured it
out pretty quick how it- could all be
done. It was not five minutes before
I heard another citizen remark that
it would be an outrage to select the
very lot in question and he thought
he newspapers ought to come out and
say so. Wel.l, I will pass it up to the
editor to tell the board where the
most available lot' offered is. All I've,
ot to say is that the lot ought not
o be selected to suit or please any
ne individual or because some one
2eeds the money for his or her prop
rty and the board should not buy
and or buildings that are not adapt
d to the purposes for which t'hey are
ought. We voted enough money to
~ive us a modern and up-to-date
uilding with ample room and that is
what we want and that is what we
nust ,have and it should 'not all be
ut in lots.
I hear that t'h-e citizens' committee
s still acting with the board. I guess
hat is alright, but the duties 'for:
hich they were appointed, -ceased
when the election was ordered. Of
ourse, the board can counsel with any
citizen and ask his or her advice, but
the responsibility is on the board
ad cannot be shifted.
No use to rush matters. We are
uilding for the future and we should
build well and carefully. Same as to
selection of suitable location.
By the way, I understand that the
petition asking an election on the
sewerage question has a safe majori
ty of g~he freeholders and the matter
will 'be -certified to city council and
the election ordered in a few days.
Now, let's make the vote unanimous.
You know this is going to be a big
town in five years or less. The New
berry Cotton Mills is going to build
Mill No. 2, with a minimum of ten
thousand spindles; the Martin-Mower
Mill is going to be built and Mollo
hon will build No. 2 very soon, and
then the C. C. & 0. railroad is com
ing this way and all the bears and
kickers and wiseacres that .we have
c~n't keep us down. We have got the
natural advantages and we are just
now on the beginning of an era of
Then it is barely possible that the
government will be able within the
next five years to determine on the
loation of that government postoffice
building. It may take a little longer,
3 t I think the question will probably
be settled in five years. I mean the
same time the deal was made. The
government better hurry up and buy
one of these lots before the options
expire or we will have to pay more
money, for real estate is going up
Union had a big kick as to the lo
cation over there, but the Union
Times, I believe it is, says the thing
to do is to forget these differenees.
Some wanted it one place and some
another. It would be very difficulti
to locate a public building in any
community the size of Newberry and
please every one. In fact it would be
safe to say that the majority would be
largely with the dissatisfied element.
It is always the case.
I want to see our building located.
I suppose those of us who -rre- not
pleased can manage to get to it,
wherever the location may be.
A gentleman of this city has asked
me if the town ordinance or the rules
of the -board of health required water
that had been used in washing clothes
and other slops to be run on the
street where it stands. Really, I don't
know. I think I had a similar ques
tion to this asked me once before. I
passed it on to the proper authority,
but have not received an answer.
Maybe this authority does not want
to answer me. Well, I am sure, I
mean no 'harm in asking the ques
-tion, but really and truly it does not
add to the beauty of the street nor
to the comfort of those neirby to
have this kind of water dumped into
the street. There is no disputing about
tastes, however, and it may be that
the proper authority thinks it does add
to the beauty of the street.
Did you see the beautiful cloud of
dust created Saturday afternoon
when the paved streets were swept?
If you did not you have something
coming to you.
I read in a paper the other day
where a man bought a 5 cents oyster
sandwich and found in it a pearl
worth $150. Now if Sam Jones would
just advertise oyster sandwiches with
pearls worth $150, wouldn't his
sandwich business increase. It would
be equal to selling ferns from .Bush
But then all the sandwiches don't
contain $150 pearls.
Thre Amus-U-Theatre is playing to
crowded houses and everybody says
the entertainment is worth the
money. I 'hope the patronage will
warrant the young man in keeping it
going. It is nice to 'have some place of
innocent amusement in the city.
What about getting t'he half of
square in rear of the opera house for
a wagon yard. It can be done and]
those who want to keep the wagons
near in would be satisfied. I suggest
that the Civic Association look into
"I SHALL TELL THE TRUTH."
Little James was one day sent with
a pitcher for some water. He acci
dentally dropped the pitcher and
broke <it, and as it was a very valu
able one, he felt very had about it.
As he stood looking sad,ly at the
broken pieces, another boy came
along and asked what was the mat
ter. J,ames told him, and he said:
"Well, go home and tell your mother
that a boy threw a stone at you, and
broke the piteher.''
"No, I shall go home and tell
mother that I dropped it and broke
"But you will surely get whipped
if you do. She will think you were
"I don't care if I do get whipped.
I shall tell the, truth. I would rather
take a dozen whippings than tell my
mother a lie."
Boys who tell the truth are not the
ones who get the most whippings. It
is the lying, deceiving, 'sneaking cow
ard who hides things,, and lies about
them, who comes to be suspected, dis
trusted and finally punished. Put
away lying.-Little Christaan.

The holy Gospel we profess;,
So let our works and virtues shine,
To prove the doctrine all divine."
