COL. DICKERT'S STORIES.
Col. D. A. Dickert's story of the
Dut-eh Fork. "Solomon or the Red
Jacket,' 'has created a great deal of in
treest. The first installment of this
story appeared in the last issue of
The Herald and News and it will be
concluded in Friday's issue.
Knowing the interest which this
story would create, especially in the
lower part of Newberry county, and
in Lexisgton, and in view of the re
union of veterans to be held at
Chapin on Friday, a number of extra
copies of the last issue were publish
ed in order to have the two issues
containi-ng the two installments of
the story at the Chapin reunion. Not
wihtsanding the extra c6pies, how
ever, the last issue of the paper has
been well-nigh exhausted. and The
Herald and News will in its next is
sue reproduce the first installment of
t,he story, along with the conclusion,
and will have a number of copies of
the paper at Ahe Chapin reunion for
Col. Dickert's thrilling story, "A
Dance With Death," being the ex
periences of himself and of Mr. Sam
Dixon in passing through the Fed
eral lines a number of times as the
,bearers of important dispatches dur
ing the late War Between the States',
which appeared in The Herald and
News in serial form, has been repro
duced in a pamphlet of some thirty
five or forty pages, and this will dlso
be on sale at the Chapin reunion. The
pamphlet will also be placed on sale
at this office.
!Col. Diekert will continue to write
stories for The Herald and News.
His stories are a valuable contribu
tien to,the literature and the .history'
of South Carolina, and have received
favorable comment throughout the
The Herald and News expects in
the near future to issue all of Col.

stories should not fail to re'new their

months, 75 cents; one year $1.50.
CoL Dic.kert 's stories are among
the many interesting departments of
The Herald and News. We ,believe
that we are giving our readers the
best semi-weekly newspaper in South
*Carolina, and our efforts shall be eon
tinuued to that end.
We notice from the Greenville pa
*pers that there have ,been two or three
meetings of th citizens of Laurens
and Greenville on -the prospective
.highway between Greenville and Co.
lumbia, via Laurens and Newberry.
The citizens on that entire part of the
line seem to be active and interested.
We desire simply to- call attentior
to the activities on the part of thes(
citizens. and to suggest that it would
not be out of place at all if some ol
day morning and comletely nuliiie
all this work. This sort of businesi
has been going on in Gaffney fo:
'thirty years and in Cherokee count)
for twelve years. If all the money
spent on our streets andi roads du.ring
that time had been spent on perma
nent street and road work Gaffne:
would have today not less than fif
teen miles of good streets and th<
e~ounty not less than tweny-five mile:

ly be dignified as temporary. A gen
tleman on one of t.he main roads lead
ing to Xewberry said the other day
that the work which was done o. this
road left it in worse condition than
it was before-that is since Mr. Rain
has come. There is no calculating
the loss to the county and city by this
class of work.
The Newberry Observe.r is treating
the Greenwood Journal real mean, in
not answering that question.-Ander
Possibly the Observer has eonclud
ed it is none of the Greenwood Jour
nal 's business.
EDITOR HUGH WILSON.
Although Mr. Hugh Wilson an
nounced some time ago that he had
retired from the editorship of the
Abbeville Press and Banner, he is
still contributing to the columns of
that paper every week. His mind has
mot lost any of its vigot, and his ar
ticles are as clear cut and as full of
kindly humor as ever.
We alwaysejoy reading anything
that Mr. Wilson writes, whether we
agree with it or not. In fact, we
think we will not read the Press and
Banner any more after Mr. Wilson
quits writing for it. 'The new editors,
the Messrs. Bradley, are all right, but
the old paper will never be the same
without the old editoz.-Andersorn
.So.nehow we feel very much the
same way. 'The Messrs. Bradley are
fine fellows. We know them both.
They are capable. But since we have
known the Press and Banner it has
been associated with Mr. Hugh Wil
son and it has fbeen always one of
the papers we missed when it failed
to come. We hope Mr. Wilson will
continue to write for it. We did not
always' agree w;,h him but We al
ways enjoyed reading what he wrote.
The legisl'ature ought to pass a law
to compel people who make up their
minds to commit suicide to go ahead
and do it without killing other people
Of course, there is no reason why
all these matters should not be reg
ulated and controlled by our legisla
ture. This is an opportunity for
some budding statesman to make a
reputation for himseI.
The Chamber of Commerce will do
its full duty and if the business men
and automobilists will cooperate there
will be something doing along good
roads lines. President Manning nev
er lets any thing good get by Sum
ter if he can help it.-Sumter Item.
This paragraph will apply with
equal force to Newberry, but that
big "if'' is always in the way. Pres
ident Mfayer, of our -ehamber of com
meree, is ready and willing and does
what he can but without the coopera
tion of the business men it is a hard
jib for one man to accomplish much,
"If'' our business men and automo
bilists woul ?neooperate'' we might get
the Greenville-Columbia road in good
condition. The business men and au
tomobilists 'of Greenville and Lau
rens are at work, but we have heard
no noise in Newberry which sounded
like anything was doing.
What is the matter? We shouli
get busy dcown this way.
