V ,ntered at the Postoffice at New
:t-ry, S. C.. as 2nd class matter.
Friday, October 15, 1909.
In calling attention to the consti
tational provision as to the registra
t'on of voters The Herald and News
did not have reference to the statute.
On that point Dr. Cromer's opinion
is safe. But a statute cannot change
the constitution. The constitution
says the registration books for the
State shall close thirty days before
an election. Tihis election is ordered
to take place less than thirty days
from the time the books were open.
This election comes on Tuesday, No
-vember 2, one day after the day for
lening county and state books of
registration. That will close the
books on the first Monday in Novem
ber and to vote in the city primary a'
town registration is necessary and to
secure it you must have a state reg
If, however, all the requirements of
the statute are complied with it will
be alright. It is important to jhave
the sewerage and our only purpose is
to ,be sure we are right so as not to
have another hold up on a technical
The board of health ough'. to go
out O'Neall street as far as Scott's
creek after dark and get a whiff
from the septic tank. In fact, all the
voters ought to do this and then there
would be no vote against the propo
sition to extend the sewerage system.
We do not understand how ,the peo
ple who live out this street have stood
this as long as they -have.
We believe the farmers ought to
sell their cotton so long as prices re
* main above twelve cents just as fast
as they can' market it. Whben it gets
below that price, if it should, then
*they should not sell a bale. The
spinners are organized for curtail
ment in production. They mean to
bear the market. Why cannot the
farmers organize. Everybody else has.
A correspondent of tihe News and
Courier from Walhalla says the new
schedule lengthens the time between
Grenville and Charleston two hours
and a half. That may be true if you
take the early train, but you have
the time in Columbia. But who
would take a :rain to Charleston that
took a whole day wben you could!
-get one that Ieft Greenville late ii
the afternoon with a sleeper all th-e
way to Charleston putting you there
for breakfast next morning? That
is the train for people from the up
country to Charleston. If they want
a day train there is the Coast Line
which leaves Greenville at noon and
renen'es Charleston at night.
Under the old schedule it took all
de' to make the trip from Greenville
to Charleston. The new arrangement
of schedule is alright and we hope it
will go into effect next Sunday.
The price of cotton holds up re
w rkably well and there is no rea
son for a decline.
The Anderson Mail says there is
cc 'M1in -the cotton market at
Anderson -below other places
as :d n. Tell. the formers

Commander Peary is wasting a lot
of energy in trying to prove that Dr.

I do not go around the union sta
tion in Newberrv very mueh because
I have reached that stage in life now
when I do not like to go into crowds
and I have always understood that
Newberrv was famous for the crowds
who go to the depot to see the trains,
but I happened over there a few
nights ago and I want to say that
in my judgment there should be more
light around the station. We now
have night trains and tihere should be
enough light to let. people see which
way to go. Then it would be a pro
tection against accidents and besides
would be a good advertisement for
the .city. There ought to be an are
light somewhere in Friend street.
Maybe there is one there but if there
is it was certainly not lighted the
night I was around there and this
was in the early evening, too.
I read the following, somewhere
not long ago and it contains a great
truth which I believe sometimes
might be applied to our own com..
"The man who grows up in his
native town is regarded as a boy by
his elders until he is well started
down the declivity of life that ends
ia a hole. The stranger who comes
into a place is more often pushed to
the front than the young man who
has grown up with the, town. This
is the reason why so many young
men become fdissatisfied with home
surroundings and long to cast their
ot in other quarters.'
'Many of our young men have left
own since I have . lived here, even,
and have gone elsewhere and achieved
success. S 'me of them might have
one well hLre, but it is too often
he case that we do not give that en
ouragement to our own young men
hat we should. We oughbt to wel
ome the stranger but we ought also
o be fair and just to our own.
-'It was some wvise man who said a
an is not without honor save in his
wn .country. Or was it the prophet
who was not without honor save in
is own country. Well, it was some
hing like tihat. Anyhow, let us en
ourage our young men to stay with
s and give them every opportunity
o do something and ,be somthing.
What I want to see is our young men
ticking to the farm instead of com
ng to town and standing all day be
ind a counter and measuring calico
and scarcely getting enough to pay
board. There is money in farming
in this country with cotton at pres
nt prices, and when you can grow
orn like Mr. Hipp there is money
in growing corn. Anid just think
of the independence of the life on
the farm. But the'.country life is go
ing to be t-he ideal life that thes city
dudes will be seeking before long.
Farming will soon be classed among
the learned professions, for it takes
brain work as well as muscle to
make a suesessfull farmier. Glreat
progress is being made in methods
and the farmers are studying their
business more than ever before. This
is as it should be.
If the spinners. don't get the price
*of cotton down before the first of
November the jig will be up because
the farmer w.vl by that time have his
ank nl"+o naid and he can be master
of :ho +-fion.y" Hie can sit downl on
the lid and say this is my cotton and
f . v t it ro must pay my
prc r it w1ll stav here. The spin
ner had .he+ter 'nekie the cloth mar
ket this '-ir and bull it if he can't
make t et present nrices of
'liton e' r do no' be'ieve' it is go
ine vnr l"er ibia season. But if I
were Mr. 'Former I would sell it just
as fast 'as J eould get it ready for
market so long as prices ranged
around where they are now. It is
so much better than the producer has
averaged in so long a time that he
will forget the crop is short. And
ithen they are paying a pretty good
prie for cotton seed, too.
I read the. following somewhere not
'ng :1a .':'d as it agrees so fully
with mev ;'Ths ;l0fn the same lines 'I
\Vnt to no er it:
"In a very interesting article inl

:rgt ivn,but telling him what
V el i~ n i
-o't to do will irritate him, and per
haps make him all the more desirous
to do what he has been forbidden.
He calls to mind that flies that walk
on two legs, as well as those that go
onl half-a-dozen, are more easily
caught by molasses than by vinegar,
and that the old Jewish policy of
prohibition expressed in "thou shalt
nots'' was not a success."'
Ihave always thought the prohi
tionists went at the thing in the
wrongo way. But. the craze is here
and I expect to see State wide pro
hibition enacted in South Carolina. I
a no going to undertake to argue
the question. So far as I am person
ally concerned it makes very little
difference to me what they do.

many troubles, most of which never

Moire Used For Separate Waists.
Separate waists of moire silk,
matching in color the tailored skirts
with wihich they are worn, are among
the new things being shown in some
of the leading stores. These waists
are severely tailored, having no trim
ming other than the buttons of cut
jet which seem to be worn on nearly
every type of garment. As a mattef
of fact they require none, for the
material is in itself so handsome and
showy that decoration would be su
perfluous.-The New Idea Woman's
Magazine for November.
