W. C. T. U. FESTIVAL.
Will Be Held in Newberry May 5.
Floats, Carriages, Automobiles,
Followed by a Bazaar.
Every place has had its festival
and now Newberry's opportunity
is presented to fall in line and become
fashionable, at least, if not famous in
However, it is to be hoped that the
bazaar and May festival which is on
hand for the first week in May will be
a decided success and one of which
all Newberrians will justly be proud.
The cause which undertakes this
enterprise is undenominational and
yet one which. is dear to the hearts
of all the people, the good and ear
nest workers of the W. C. T. U., and
It is proposed on Wednesday, the
5th of May, to have a grand parade
consisting of floats, decorated vehi
cies, and anything else that will add
tone, beauty and attractiveness to this
parade. The members of -the W. C.
T. U. through the chairman of the
decorating committee, Mrs. E. M.
Evans, ask that every merchant in
town and every business concern, join
in and provide a float or some kind of
attractive display and make this pa
rade the prettiest and the largest ever
seen in Newberry.
The floats, carriages, automobiles,
buggies, etc., are all to be trimmed in
whatever the owners choose but it is
suggested that the use of crepe paper
combined with flowers and other nat
ural floral decorations will be the
most effective. Then, too, it is ear
nestly requested that no empty floats
or vehicles appear in the parade, but
that each one be occupied by ladies
or children or men or boys and in this
way add a real personal eharm to the
During the few days following the
parade a bazaar and May festival will
be held which promises to be one of
the most elaborate affairs ever given
in the city. Full particulars of this
will be given later or perhaps in this
issue of The Herald and News. The
committees and such. data as that has
already been published.

The evening will be in the hands of
the social and literary committee of
the league, and it will be interesting
to note that Prof. Roberts is the third
State Vice-president, and therefore
State chairman of the Literary and
Social Department of the league.

parties have wishj for them many
years of uninterrupted happiness.
Mrs. Workman, as Mrs. Harmon
has lived in Newberry a number of

A Great Bill Scheduled for this
Week.-Go Out and Enjoy Your
self.-Costs But Little.
Th-e Amus-U-Theatre has sehed
uled a great bill for this week. In
fact the management of this house
has secured some wonderful attrac
tions for this week.
This is the sixth week for this lit
tle vaudeville -house and it is under
stood that it will be -the best of all.
Mr. Epting has succeeded in working
his split work, that is, giving the pa
trons of this theatre new faces every
-third night, and also giving an entire
change of program daily, which will
apply both to the vaudeville and to
the motion pictures.
There is also an increase in the
lengbh of the pictures for instead of
presenting 1,000 feet of life motion
pictures, the management will place
before the eyes of the public 2,000
feet at each performance.
This theatre, as the people who at
tend can readily see, has been giving
some grand shows, and every effort is
being made to please the public, and
establish a great place for amuse
ment in Newberry.
Within the next few days electric
fans will be installed in this theatre
and it will be made a very comfort
able place for the people of the city
to spend a few hours enjoyably.
' Now, everybody who likes fun and
a good time, join the crowd that at
tends the Amus-T-Theatre.

Bridges had consented to be sworn in
in the Wallace House.

a history of the deal or transaction
and at some future day I expect to
publish the same.
I am glad to get this additional in
