A GOOD OFrE.
For several years The Herald and
News ihas ,been sending tihe News and
Courier in connection with The Her
old and News for $2.00.
The weekly News -and Courier is
printed on Wednesday and Saturday.
The first of this year the weekly
News and Courier ipcreased its price
to seventy-five cents, making the two
papers $2.25. The weekly News and
Courier, however, has offered in ad
iition to the paper to send a copy
of the Home and Farm for one year
and a pair of eight inch steel adjus
table tension shears, making The
Herald and News, the News and Cour
ier, the Home and Farm, and the
shears all for $2.25. This price will
be given for old as well as new sub
seribers during the month of May.
In order to take advantage of this
offer you must subscribe for one year
or pay one year's subqeription to
The Herald and News and News and
The Herald and News has never
caxed much about a clubbing arrange
ment because as a rule it has never
been satisfactory. This, 'however, is
an extraordinary offer, the shears
alone being worth seventy-five cents.
The weekly News and Courier is
printed twice a week, on Wednesday
and Saturday, The Herald and News
twice a week on Tuesday and Friday
and the Home and Farms is thrown,
in with these.
The Herald and News has made ar
rangements with Mr. W. E. Lawson,
an experienced newspaper man, to
canvass the county for subscribers.
Any courtesy extended him will be
~appreciated. He starikd out yes'ter

some time to get accustomed to it but
we are marking no exceptions.
Those -whose time expired on the
first of this month will be notified
today and if not -renewed this week
will be 'taken off on Satu-rday. We
shall regret to do this but we give
you ten days. Please attend to it
The story by Col. Dickert, "A
Dance with Death,'' will run in the
paper every Ta'esday until comnplet
ed. Tihose who came and secured
copies of the first instalment had
better subscribe if they desire the
reminsning chapters. We cannot fur
nish free copies to those who are not
subscribers. Of course, we know a
great many who are not subscribers
are reading borrowed papers. We do
niot object to that, but it will be much
!more satisfactory to you to have the
paiper sent direet. A man mutst feel
mighty bad, who, .to save the paltry
cost of a county paper, will borrow
his neighbbor 's.
We find the following in a recent
issue of the Columbia State:
A WARNING TO MANN.
"Doth He Not Consider From
Whence Cometh His Job?"
To the Editor of The State:
Please excuse the inclosed inquiry,
"What manner of mat doth this
our t.rustee Mann eat, tihat maketh
him so bold?'' Doth he not .consider
from whence cometh his job -and
whither it goeth i
Bowman, S. C., April 20.
It depends. You should remember
that Mr. Mann also holds a seat in
the legislature of South Carolina and
in violation of the State constitutionl
and the man who is smart enough to
do that need not cons5ider. HIe doesn't
have to. We understand that lie is
thinking serio'usly of adding other
fethers to his cap.

I wonder if Mr. President Sligh,
of the Good Roads league, has read
in the papers the proposition to build
a great big highway from New York
to Florida. And they say it is going
by Charlotte and Anderson and to
Atlanta. Now suppose you look at
the map and see if we could not get
in this line. From Charlotte to At
lanta Newberry would be in it.
Talking about roads I think that
the convicts in the penitentiary ought
to be put on permanent road work
and the farms ought to be sold or
just a sufficiently large farm kept to
There are about one thousand con
victs in the penitentiary. That num
ber of able bodied men stretched out
on the public roads would soon build
two or three aeross the entire State.
It is the thing to do. What do you
think of it, Mr. President Sligh ?
There is talk of a road to connect
Beaufort and Savannah, and I be
lieve steps are being taken to build
a road between Columbia and Cam
&6n. The time is at hand when we
must do something. We must bave
better roads and the thing is to get
the work started in the right direc
You know this would be a beauti
ful town at this season especially if
our streets and sidewalks were only 1
in a little better looking condition.
Have you seen the ditches and the
weeds and the trash and the gulleys?
Well. I believe those in charge are
doing the best they can and "angels
could do no more" but they need,
help. Need the help of every citi
zen and every property owner. Just
a little help and a little cooperation
and not so much kicking and fault
finding and how beautiful everything
"There are those who use the hold
back more than the collar." Had
you ever thought of this before?
Wonder if Newberry has any such
horses or mules? Those who are al
ays pulling back ? What we need
now is everybody to draw hard on
the .collar and a pull altogether.
Oh, yes, Greenville 'has a few peo
ple who are willing to give away ad
vice free of charge and without solici
tation. But it isn't their fault.
I thoughit it might be fitting to
quote the above parapraph from the
Greenville News in this connection.
No, no, there is no one in Newberry
to give away advice. I think the
minumn price charged is five dol

notice that Aiken, South Carolina,
has plans already definitely under
way to build a boulevard from Au
gusta to Aiken. I suppose this means
a road. The distance is something
like 25 miles. The Augusta Ohronicle
ays, "A mile or two of modern
boulevard, once built and in opera
tion, would soon lead to the building
of many more miles." That is what
I have always believed about public
oads. A mile or two once built,
means many more miles. Lets build
the first mile or two right now.
By the* way, I wonder what ~has
ecome of that experiment of a mile
f good road by an expert from the
overnment. Can and will Mr. Su
ervisor Feagle tell us?
Talking about 'the school building

There is one thing that has beer

berry at once. May it be so.
I notice .they are still talking aboul
the trouble at Clemson. Well, i1
does look like Clemson is having i
lot of trouble but iher income and hei
expenses go on like Tennyson '
brook. Theare is no end.
As I have remarked before abou'
other matters I don't know anythin
about the trouble at Clemson, there
fore, I have *a perfect right to ex
press an opinion. The opinion mal
not be worth any more than m3
knowledge but that doesn 't matter.
Clemson was born in a politica

get rid of 'her birth marks. Ther<
