NEW POSTOFFICE BUILDING.
Matter Will Be Taken Up by De
partment Soon.-Change of
Officers Causes Some Delay.
Nobody in Newberry seems to
have any information in regard to the
decision by the treasury 4department
as to the location of the postoffice
building which has been authorized
for this city.
The people who have offered sites
would like to know which one is go
ing to be selected, but so far no in
formation has been received.
The building at Union was author
ized at the same time as the one at
Newberry and the site for that build
ing has been selected. It is supposed
that something will be done in re
gard to the Newberry building very
A gentleman who was interested in
some of the sites wrote the depart
ment to find out about when the one
at Newberry would be decided upon.
The following letter was received
in response to that inquiry:
Washington, April 16, 1909.
Sir:-In response to your commu
1e: -n of the 14th instant. I am di
reeted to inform you that the De
partment hopes to be able to take up
the matter of the selection of a Fed

a short time. The case is now before

can be done until the new Assistant

no one can read them.
We have had some correspondence
with this same department but have
been unable to make out the signature
and it is the same in this case.

FATS AND LEANS.
Leans Won by Small Margin-Much
Interest in the Game by Those
A great game of baseball was pull
ed off at the college grounds Wed
nesday afternoon, the two teams be
ing selected from the business men
of the city. One side was composed
of those who possess an overabun
dance of avoirdupois, and their op
ponents 'were those who are compos
ed mostly of "skin and bones," in
other words, called "Fats and Leans''
The game, it was a corker from be
ginning to end, both sides being
equally matched. It actually see
sawed, first one side in the lead and
then the other, but the leans got
busy and won out in the ninth, and
the final score stood 13 to 12.
As to the feature of the game, well
the whole thing was a feature, and
everyone played his best to perfect

a particular one, if that becomes nec

Dr. Setzler Discusses English Gram
mar.-Helpful Talk by President
J. H. Harms.
The Newberry County Teachers'
Association met at the new court
house on Saturday, April 17.
As announced at a previous meet
ing, Dr. E. B. Setzler continued his
discussion of case. He recommended
outlining the functions of each case,
and including these functions in the
definitions of the cases, especially
when teaching advanced classes. He
also urged teachers to require pupils
when parsing to give reason for case.
Dr. Setzler prefers a dative case for
reasons stated at the March meeting,
but since few of the text books in
general use deal with case, he thought
it might be more practicable to in
elude all functions under the nomina
tive, possessive and objective cases.
Buehler's being a representative
grammar. fhe used the outlines of the
uss of eases, approving some, sug
gesting amendments and additions
to others, giving reason for each sug
Buehler's outline of the uses of the
nominative case is as follows:
1. Subject of verb.
2. Attribute, complement.
3. A vocative.
4. An exclamation.
5. Nominative absolute.
Dr. Setzler suggested a slight
change in (1) to ''subject of finite
verb.'' He showed (2) to be faulty
by isin;- the following sentence as
illustratit in: They believed Washing
ton to be prisident. The noun presi
dent, although an attribute comple
ment, is objective. He preferred say
ing. "case of a noun or pronoun in
apposition with another nominative."
After showing by illustration that
nouns or pronouns used in exclamation
are not always . nominative, he ad
vised striking out (4). Instead of
(5) he cuggested saying' "subject of
absolute claus'e" thus avoidi'ng the
confusion that such a sentence as this
might cause: Caesar having crossed
the Rubicon, his army, etc. Rubicon
although in the absolute clause is not
nominative, but objective.
Next came the discussion of the
possessive case. Dr. Setzler noted
the tendency of the hypercritical to
limit the possessive case to nouns or
pronouns denoting living beings, but
said best usage gives greater latitude.
He gave the following as a definition
of the possessive case: ''The possess
ive case is the case of a 'noun or pro
noun which modifies another noun or
pronoun that means a different per
son or thing, and of a word in appo-'
sition with another possessive.'
Buehler gives the foll'owing uses 'of
the objective case:
1. A direct object..
2. An objective complement.
3. An indirect object.
4. Object of a preposition.
3. Adverbial modifier.
6. Subject of infinitive.
In (4) the meaning of 'the word
object might be misleading, so Dr.
Setzler advised saying, ''governed by
a preposition.'' To the above six
uses 'he would add "case of a noun~
or pronoun to which'-the adjectives
like or near refer; as in the sen
tence: The book nearest him is red.
"Case of a noun or pronoun in appo
sitionwith an objective'' was added
as an eighth use of the case. Dr.
Setzler .then recalled his proof that an
attribute complement may be ob
jective, saying, however, t'hat he
would not mention this to the pupil,
but include that use under the above,
(eighth) head. He showed. a rare;
us of the objective in Woe 'is me! and
0 wretched me! He said this was
properly a dative functi'in.
This ended Dr. Setzler 's instruct
ive series' of lectures on subjects in
English. Mr. Wheeler, in behalf of
the association, thanked 'him.
Dr. Harms, of Newberry college,
gave the audience one of his charac
teristic pleasing, helpful talks. He
first spoke of the inspiration and of
the deepened impression of the great
ness of the educational cause that he
had gotten from the Eleventh Educa
tional Conference, which met in At
lanta last week. The idea 'he gave of
the purpose of. education was unique
ad uniqluely expressed. He said the
one purpose of education was to give
the pupil a triple vision. The first
part of this vision is the "'inlook''
giving the pupil knowledge of self,
his possibilities, powers, etc. Here Dr.
Harms gave a vivid contrast between
the educated mani and the ignorant
man-picturing the former as realiz
ing his faculties and making them
useful to himself and others; the lat
ter as plodding through life, utterly
unconscious of his God-given endow
ments and, therefore, letting them lie
omant, useful neither to himself
nor to omfers.
The second part of the vision is
the ''outlook.'' As the destiny of
every person is not to lead an iso
lated life, but to make one of the
movng assof humanity, he must
BETTER FIRE PROTECTION.
Board of Fire Masters Make Sugges
tions to Council-Improvements
The board of fire masters held a
meeting on Wednesday afternoon to
consider matters pertaining to our
water appliances for fire protection.
It seems that Newberry does not come
up to the requirements of the South
Eastern Underwriters' Association
in the matter of fire protection.
If we are to judge by the fire which
struck Newberry some two years ago
and the manner in which we were
able to handle it, the conclusion would
be inevitable that the association is
It is a matter which should have
the attention of the offieers in charge
and everything should be done to put
the town within the requirements of
the most rigid rules.
The fire like the one two years ago
would destroy sufficient property
within a very few hours to cover the
additional cost of better equipment
for years to come.
In the matter of fire protection all
American cities are very much be
hind. It is stated that the loss per
capita by flames in Italy is 12 eents
yearly, in Germany forty-nine cents,
in thirty of the largest European
cities the per capita destruction is
sixty-one cents and in 252 American
cities the loss from fire per capita is
It would be economical and a sav
ing of property to spend more money
for the very best fire equipment that
it is possible to secure.
The following is the report to
Newberry, S. C., April 14, 1909.
To The Honorable City Council,
Newberry, S. C.
Gentlemen: - After considerable

provements are hereto attached.
We, therefore, recommend that tre
following recommendation of this re
port be eomplied with at once, viz:
Pass ordinanee regulating building
constructors, industries allowed with
in t he corporate limits, kind and style
f flues, storage and sale of explosi
es and inflammables.
Copies of said ordinance are here
to attached, and you can make such
alterations as are necessary ,to com
ply with the local requirements..
That part of the recommendations

at his residence.
Make the wagon house fire resis

We again recommend thg you
