Mr. J. A. Burton Has Received Notice
That Mrs. Cook's Lot Has Been
Mr. James A. Burton. real estate
agent, has received a telegram from
the secretary of the treasury at
Washington, that the proposition sub
mitted through his agency for the lot
of Mrs. Cook at the corner of Friend
and College streets had been selected
as a site for the new postoffice build
ing at Newberry.
Mr. Burton does not know just how
much of that lot will be taken. In
addition to the lot of Mrs. Cook, he
had an option on portion of. the va
cant lots of Mr. L. C. Boland and
the estate of Mr. James F. Tood. It
cannot be stateL, therefore, just how
much. the price will be for the lot un
til it is determined how much of the
additional land will be necessary for
the government building.
This will move the postoffice just
one block further from the depot than
it is at present, and will be very con
venient to all of the business con
cerns of the city and if the town
grows it must of necessity grow east
The Herald and New has always
been of the opinion that the lot of
the Methodist church in the same
street and running up to collnge street
was the most desirable location for
the government building but it seems
that this lot was not wide enough.
We have not said anything about this
lot for the Veason that there might be
people 'Who would think that our
judgment was biased on account of
the provimity of the lot to the office
of The Herald and News. Next to
this lot we are frank to say that in
our opinion the 'lot selected is the
most desirable of the many lots which
were offered, and will serve the best
interest and convenience of more peo
ple than any of the other lots.
We hope 'now%v that the government
will let the contract for the erection
of the building at once.
Southern Will Operate Special Train
Today-Ball Game Between New

The Heiaid and News on Tuesday
mentioned the fact that the South
ern railway will run a special train
from Prosperity to Greenwood today
on -account of the inter-collegiate or
atorical contest to be held in Green
This train will be a great conven
ience to the people of this county and
between here and Greenwood who de
sire to attend the contest, and also to
witness the* game of ball whieb will
be played this afternoon at Green
It was with some difficulty that the
train was secured and as it seems that
Greenwood is to be the place at which
t'hese contests are to be 'held from
year to year in order to have a special
train made one of the permanent fea
tures of the occasion it is necessary
that it be patronized.
The special will leave Prosperity at
12:30 and Newberry at 12:40. The
round trip fare from Prosperity is
$2 :00 and from Newberry $1.70. The
train will not leave Greenwood until
after the exercises are over, at night
which will probably be about twelve
o'clock, thus furnishing an opportun
ity for all persons from Prosperity
to Greenwood to atterid the exereises

MONUMENT AT ARLINGTON
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
All who honor the courage and de
votion of the Confederate soldier will
Some years ago under a generous
act of the United States congress, at
government expense, the remains of
265 Confederate soldiers, then scat
tered throughout Arlington and the
District of Columbia, were gathered
and interred together in a beautiful
spot now known -as the Confederate
Section in Arlington cemetery, each
grave myrked with a marble head
stone, identifying the soldier when
possible. Practically every Confed
erate State is named on those slabs.
Later the U. S. congress gave by
unanionus vote $200,000 to care for
the graves of those who died in North
ern prisons. Each of these soldiers,
where known, is to have a separate
headstone, and the remains of the.un
known, it has now been decided by
the president, are to be grouped under
In the center of the Confederate
Section at Arlington is left a mound.
There, in sight of Washington City,
where for untold generations the
American and the foreigner will be
pilgrims, the Confederates themselves
are expected to build a memorial,
which will typify their love of and
veneration for their dead.
Soon after the reinterment at Ar
lington, Confederate organizations in
Washington began to move in this
matter. In 1906 the United Daugh
ters of -the Confederacy, in convention
at Gulfport, endorsed the movement
and subscribed to it. In 1907 at
Norfolk the Daughters took full
charge, appointing directors in the
several States and an executive com
mittee at Washington. All went
to work. From all sources the amount
received and deposited in the Ameri
can Security & Trust Company -of
Washington, D. C., as reported at a
meeting of our cammittee, on the 5th
of April, 1909, was $8,999.73, besides
$4.50 on hand but not yet deposited,
aggregating over nine thousand dol
laij now in 'hand.
To build a monument worthy of our
dead and whieh will represent at Ar
Ilington -the home of Lee, all the Con
federate every where, we feel that we
need $30,000 more. This sum can and
will be subscribed by our friends at
once, if they are properly solicited.
Each local chapter of the Daughters
is .therefore ihereby earnestly request
1. Ask the local newspapers, which
are always public spirited, to. print
this appeal in two (or more, if dail
ies) of their issues preceding the com
ing local Memorial day, calling atten
tion to the appeal and reinforcing it
2. Appoint a number of earnest and
efficient young lady canvassers, eaeh
to be decorated, when soliciting with
appropriate insignia of authority, and
instruct them to ask of every one, in
streets, business houses and homes, to
contribute 10 cents, informing eaeh
person that no more is asked, but that
larger or smaller sums will not be re
fused, and the canvassers must polite
ly insist .on pinning upon .each one
who responds a piece of white ribbon,
upon which is 'printed ''Contributor
to Arlington Monument.''
3. Amounts t'hus collected, less nee
essairy expenses, will be sent by check
or express to Mr. Wallace Streater,
treasurer, 3160 18th Street, Washing
ton, D. C., who will duly acknowledge
as well as publish in the ''Confeder
ate Veteran'' of Nashville, .Tenn.
This plan energetically carried out
it is earnestly hoped will at once en
able the organization to ask for de
signs and bids 'to be submitted to the
U. D. C. at the next convention.
It will be gratifying indeed if t'he
building by the Federal government
of the monument it is about to erect
over our unknown dead around North
ern prisons, shall be promptly follow
ed by - the consummation of our own
plans for such a memorial at Arling
ton as shall be a soutrce of pride to
us and our posterity.
Should every chapter of the Daugh
ters-inl all the land, whether it is or
is not otherwise observing Memorial
day, unitedly rise to this work as we
confidently expect and in the space
of one day raise t'he sum necessary
to complete this monument, what a
glorious spectacle of love and patriot
ism 'this will present.
