JAMES T. BACON.
In the death of Col. James T. Ba
con, one of the gentlest and tenderest
of nature's noblemen, has been called
to his reward. He was at the same
time firm in 'his convictions of right
and bold and fearless in the express
ion of his opinions.
Our first. recollection of journalism
in this State associates him with the
profession. He was always our friend
-and in later years when we became
associaed with journaist6c work that
friendship became stronger and we
are proud of the privilege of having
the friendship of snch a man. We
s1hall miss him at the gatherings of
We desire now only to express a
feeling of personal loss in the death
of Col. Bacon and to extend our sym
pathy -to those of his immediate fam
ily who mourn his death.
We notice from the daily papers
that two members of the railroad com
mission -feel slighted that ithey were
not invited to tihe conference at
Greenville, looking to better service
and better accommodations on the C.
& G. division of the Southern.
We -do not know why they were not
invited, but if they were not, and if
there is need for improvement in this
division, they should not wait to have
the service improved by a meeting of
j $Commisioner Earle was present and
-he submitted a letter to the board
making suggestions looking to the im
provement of accommodations on this
division, but the board refused to take
'-Totice of Mr. Earle's letter.
Mr. Earle 'is probably correct that
the commission has no power .to order
a third t.rain, but that the otiher mat
ters of proper accommodations and
equipment are . matters which should
hbave the .attention of Uhe commission.
As we stated at Greenville and
~have since stated, the people of .this
ecimmunity are not especially anxious
for a third train, -but they would
like to have tihe train which leaves
Greenville at 9:30 a. in., leave Green
ville about 6 a. 'm., so as to pass New
* erry between 10 and 11 o 'clock, at
-the latest,' going toward Columbia,
and they would like to have the train
whih now leaves Columbia a.t 1 p. in.,
leave there about 2, so as to pass
Newberry an hour later. With this
change of schedule, and without an
additional train, our .people would be
satisfied. For .the tbhrough t.ravel
from Grenville to Columbia, if the
-Southern would carry the Pullman
'from Charleston on to Greenville on
Kthe morning train and tihen return it
on the night train from Greenville to
Charleston, the through travel would
*probably 'oe satisfied with the accom
Kmodations. We think t.his would be
better .zhan an extra train. if the ad
ditional expense of the extra train
were pint into better equipment on the
road and rolling stock. Mr. Earle
suggested that tihis midday train, as
we call it, be a through train as far as
Greenwood from Greenville. and ex
tend the train that now operates be
tween Greenville and Belton to Green
wood, and let it do local work be
. tween those points. That would
shorten the time of the .train between
Greenville and. Columbia, but so far
as we are concerned, t.hatr is a mat
- ter about which we have no sugges
We desire to remind the Greenville
News that the railroad meeting held
in Greenville some clays ago was the
outcome of the suggestion of the
News and The Herald and News that
a meeting be held to see if we could
not secure better accomimodat ions in
the shape of a parlorw ear on tihe At
la.ntic Coast Line between Greenville
and Charleston, and tbae: we (do not
intend to let t::is proposit ii be for
gotten. The other meet ing was al
iright and we hope it will resuk in im
-rovment in the service on the
Somheri. bt we do not 'mcn<i to for
etat we ieed better aecomimoda
11111S ol the other line between
Greenville and Charlesion. W\e hope
the Ne;s will not let up in its a.gi
tation of this improvement.
There is no need for Mr. Peary or
Dr. Cook to quarrel over ifhe discov
ery of the North Pole. There is glory
enough for both. Let them give to the
world the evidence of their discov
ery and the result of their research
and in this way ;there will be no oe
easion to dispute about which one did
As soon as it rains it wculd be a
good idea for the farmers to plont
some oats and he sure to sow a suffi
cient amount of wheat to make flour
for your own use. The roller mills of
this section make as good flour as the
patent whieh we buy and then you
know it is the real article.
The Herald and News is much
pleased with its new offices upstairs.
We are going ito try to make the offi
ces comfortable and a'ttractive and
we want to see our friends at all
times. We could take a few more
subseribers on our mailing list. A
good time to start.
* THE IDLER. *
Mr. Henry Wells sent me word that
he would like for it to -be stated that
he was not L. 0. who was complaining
about that bridge in Harrington
street. Well, it makes little differ
ence now who it was, the bridge is
repaired. To tell you -the truth I do
not know just where -this bridge is,
as I have not ben out this way in a
long time, but the thing is done now.
And they tell me it is a good job, that
is I hear of them talking about it.
I was thinking the other day-yes,
thinking-that Newberry was or is a
ipretty good town. Now, you see, I
~had an opportunity to go to another
town that makes a great big noise
in fact a noise like it might he some
thing-and I tell you I was surprised
to see that it was not near as large as
Newberry. The fact is Newberry is
a much larger .town than it claims for
itself. We need to take lessons in
claiming, Some day you go out in
M~ain street at the corner drug store
and look up and down Main street
and then see if you do not agree with
me that the business portion is larger
than you thought. I am sure you do
not rea-lize tihe size of the residence
I .think it wou-ld be a good idea if
the citizens along 'where there is a
cement sidewalk would have it swept
off every morning. It would take very
little time and labor and it would add
so much to the appearance of the
street. If you don 't believe it would
add to the appearance of the premises
you just try it for a few mornings and
I am sure you will wonder why you
did not do it long ago. Some of these
sidewalks .tihat are not swept do pre
sent a horrible appearance. Try it.
No use to have pretty sidewalks if
you are not going to keep tihem clean.
Sometimes the cows that run at large
warlk tihese beautiful sidewalks. I
suppose i.t is for the good grazing that
is an either side. Well, you know, af
.ter the cows have grazed along on the
walks for several hours-well, you
know-it wvould add so much to the
appearance of these walks if they
were swept off every day and it
would not be mnue'h trouble if .those
who owvn or control adjacent property
would .have them swept once -or twice
1 really would like to know why the
street force is no: kept at wvork duingt
the beautiful weather for such work.
we have had the past month. Really
I have not seen a street hand the past'
moread Mr. Blease's platforman
it makes a g'ood sort of noise to me
that is I mean,1he has a good platform.
Le.t us hear from the other candidates
and then I think it is important to
have an alderman from each ward
who will do sometihing. That is what
this town needs, men who will do
soymet,hdng'. I mew:m for .the town, for
the genera] welfare. Good live alder'
men with a live progressiv~e may'or
atnd then yo u will see somnethling do
ha t hey tell me that Greenwood
hspaved her ent ire publie square
and a number of tshe main stree.ts lead
ing into it and that beautiful little
pars have been mae in .the square,
Grenwood-so I am iold-but let's

Speaking about the Greenwood pav
ing isn't Kenneth Baker mayor of
Gren-wood? You know, they tell me
he is .the same Kenneth Baker that
used to be at Prosperity, and if so
he is a mighty fine fellow, and that
accounts for the forward movement
oat Grenwood, for I did hear that even
in Greenwood some of the old stagers
kicked mightily about the paving and
talked about injunctions, but Mayor
Baker just went right ahead. And
some of these kickers were the big
dogs, too, that is the rich fellows, tbhey
didn't like the idea of parks and mov
ing the wagon yard.
You know it is funny why so many
of'the rich folks have no taste for the
beautiful. They can see nothing so
beautiful as gold and silver dollars
and greenbacks and stocks and bonds
and brick sand mortar. Well, I think
I would like silver and gold for the
good use I could make of it and for
the good I could do with it, but not
for the purpose of hoarding it. Never
having had any. however, possibly I
have no right to express an opinion.
