E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, June 15, 1909.
Greenville and other towns and
cities that have a large country trade
are talking about the necessity of a
rest room for the ladies who come
in from the country. Ntwberry needs
such a place as much as any town
we know anything about. We have
one of the best opportunities of any
small town to have such a room. If
we would only arrange with the au
thorities to have a room fitted up in
the old court house the place and
the location would be ideal. Some
thing ought to be done with this old
building beside renting it out to pri
vate parties for offices. The building
would make an ideal public library
and could be used for rest room at
the same time. What do our business
men think of a proposition like the
one here suggested?
When the party with the scout cars
come into Newbery every - citizen
should make himself a committee of
one to extend a welcame and have
a good word for Newberry.
The Press Association will meet the
6th to 8th of July. We hope that
every editor and publisher in the
State wiho caa possibly get awaVy
from home will be at the meeting.
It will do all of us good to get to
gether and even if you have to leave
iome at the cost of getting out a lit
tle less better paper for that week
than you are in the habit of doing
it will be well for your readers to
have. you take this trip for the new
inspiration it will give you for the
remainder of the year. We must
have a full meeting this year.
We believe that the scout cars and
pathfinders of the Atlanta Journal
and New York Herald will stimulate
t.he good roads movement and the
more interest you can get aroused the
more good you can do for the cause.
There is nothing just now so import
ant to the people of this section of
the country ass'the improvement of
onr highways. Anything that will
help the work along should have our
most hearty approval and encourage
Mr. W. L. Roddey, one of the oldest
and most prominent citizens of Rock
Hill, died last week aged 76 years.
He was in reality t:he founder of
Rock Hill and was greitly respected
by all the citizens. We were in Rock
Bill the evening of the day of his
burial, and every business house was
draped in mourning and every busi
ness suspended during the hour of
We notice that Clemson College is
going to extend an invitation to the
Press Association to meet next year
at the college and that "the college
authorities will pay the expenses of
a week's entertainment out of their
own pockets.'' It would be better if
the Press Association is to be invited,
to Clemson in view of the criticisms
that have been made and in order
that the members may see conditions
as they are that the members should
go there at their own expense and not
as the guests of the institution they
are to write of as they see it. It
is not probable that the Association
will accept an invitation to hold an
annual meeting there though it may
be that the Association will accept
the invitation to visit Clemson during
the meeting in Greenville next month.
The Road to Success
has many obstructions, but none so
desperate as poor health. Success
today demands health, but Electric
Bitters is the greatest health builder
the world has ever known. It com
pels perfect action ot* stomach, liver,
kidneys. bowels, purifies and enriches
the blood, and tones and invigorates
the whole system. Vigorous body and
keen brain follow their use. You can
afford to slight Electric Bitters if
weak, run-down or sickly. Only 50e.

In our enthusiasm about the scout
cars and the patfinders and in arrang
ing the pilot cars we must not forget
that banquet we are going to get up
for the C., C. & 0. road, and our ef
forts to secure that road for New
berry. The patfinders are alright,
but we must have the Clinchfield rail
road. too. Don 't you forget that.
1I am glad that these scout cars of
the Atlanta Journal and the New
York Herald are going to come by
Newl?erry. It seems, however, that at
first Newberry was not on the map.
I cannot understand why Co.lumbia
should be against this route. Why
.4 :uhl the Record and the Sta.t, be
agaiist Newberry, anywayl They
have no better field for subscribers
than Newberry, and unless there is
sonie good reason they should help
Newberry. I would like to know
from whom the- information was sent!
from Columbia that the route from
Greenwood via Newberry was through
th-ree miles of swamp at Chappells?
That is not the route traveled from
Columbia to Greenwood, and besides
there are not three miles of swamp at
Chappells. It it none of my business,.
I notice that the State says some
of these papers were not before this
much of an advocate of good roads.
As the editor of The Herald and
News may be a little timid claiming,
I want to say for him that this can
not mean him or The Herald and
News, for I am old enough to know
that The Herald and News has been
advocating the building of permanent
roads for many years-in fact long
before automobiles were run in this
section, and I know long before any
pathfinders were thought of. And
the editor when he was a candidate I
for the legislature some eight years
ago advocated the building of perma
nent roads and when he was in' the!
legislature introduced a bill to sub
mit to the people of each county th'e
question of voting bonds or a special
tax for permanent road building. It
was defeated because the people then
seemed to be afraid of taxation in:
any- shape for road work. So this'
fling does not apply or mean The'
Herald and News. But we are all in
favor of good roads now.
That reminds me of a little poem
I read the other day from the Louis-'
ville Courier-Journal. It runs as fol-'
Her Little Scheme.
There was a hen
Too old to lay.
The farmets men
Oft looked her way.
She saw them at her slyly winking
And so began to do some thinking.
She knew that she
Could earn no corn
Might soon adorn.
But boldly she the problem tackled
When others layed she loudly cackled.
Her little scheme
Worked well indeed.
Her owners deem
Her worth her feed.
About the yard she waxes fatter
And still 'escapes the dreaded platter.
You see the point. Tigere are a lot
of hens in other places who have,
learned how and when to ecackle and
as a consequence are- considered as
worth their fed in the community and
ontinue to wax fatter. It is alright
I am glad to have them cackle late1
than never to egale at all.
I was wondering tonight if any
body besides me and the children ever:
'read or cared to read Buster Brown'
in the "funny paper,'' as we child
ren call it. In the current issue is
Ahown how he played a trick on'
Trandpa. I do not propose to try to
tell you t.he trick. You can get the
paper and read it for yourself. It
would be worth your while but I want
to quote a part of the resolution
which Buster resolved after the fun
was over. H'e says: "This disease of
growing old is a nuisance. I'm going
to stay young as long as I can, cul
tivate enthusiasm and keep interest
ed in everything nice. 'Unless you
become as little children you 'shall
in nowise enter t'he kingdom of heav-'
en.' Thats easy to see. Children are
honest, they are, temperate, get big
sleep, love one another, love nature,
they 'believe things, have faith and
trust. Isn't that enough to make
them happy ? Happiness is the king
dom of heaven. The blase, old, sel
fish, conceited glutton or miser can't
get into heaven because he has walled
heaven in with selfishness. The eye
ofa needle is a subway compared to
his chance of being happy.''
Now don't you think that contains
meat and good met~ We all ought
' rema~in \ng in !iid and leart
:V ta. we migh retainl the faith aid
trust of little children and that we
might, love one another more, that we
might believe more, and thus be hap
py. We are the builders of our own
fortunes and the moulders of our own
characters and the more trust we have
the more faith we have in one anoth
er, the more kindness we show, the
better will be the structure that we
will erect and the more enduring.
Try it and I guarantee it. will make
a better man and a better woman of
you and you will be so pleased with
the experiment you will wonder you
could ever have done otherwise. There
is'no room in heaven for the selfish,
conceited, miserly being and if he
were there he would not be happy.
And yet how some o. us do love
money. And how selfish some of us
are. It is not a crime to be rich or to
accumulate money. It is rather an
evidence of thrift and of obedience
to the command to use your talents.
It is a sin, though, to worship money
and to measure character and man
hood and everything else by the mon
ey standard. And it is a crime to be
supremely selfish fo.r in this way you
s:hut out all the happiness from your
soul in this world and in the world
I hear the farmers say that the
rains are ruining their crops. This
