The Registration Books for Primary
Close on 18th.-If You Want to
Vote Get Registered.
The voters for the city election
are rgistering very indifferently.
Probablyi they do not recall that in
order to vote registration certificates
must be secured prior to November
19. The registration office is open
every day, and of course registration
certificates can be secured every.day
prior to December 2, but only those
secured prior -to November 19, will
'be good for the .primary election, and
that is really the only election that
amounts to anything, because. after
the candidates are nominated the
-election is only a matter of form.
Up to yesterday -morning 378 vo
ters had been registered for the city
election. They were'. distributed
among the wards as follows: .
'Ward One, 65.

Only One Pledge Piled.

KILLED BY TRAIN.
Loge Berry Struck by C., N. & L.
Passenger Train and Killed.
Partner Not Seriously Hurt.
Loge Berry was killed yesterday
about one o'clock by a C.. N. & L.
passenger train near Colony church.
Joe Lawrence, who was with him,
was struck by the train but. not se
It seems that Berry and Lawrence
were walking the track just below
Mr. F. P. Wicker's where the South
ern and C. N. & L. tracks are very
close together They were making
their way from Columbia to Clinton.
A freight train on the Southern
was running in the same direction as
the passenger train and very nearly
parailel with it. It is probable that
they saw the freight train on the
Southern track and were not aware
of the passenger train on the track
which they were walking.
The C. N. & L. train was in charge
of Conductor Web., and Engineer
Lawrence, who was not seriously
hurt, stated that he did not know,
himself, how it was that he was not
hurt and in fact could not tell any
thing much about. how the accident
happened. He claims to be from
Spartanburg and says that Berry
was from Greenville but they were
making their way to Clinton.
The passenger train was delayed
about. thirty-five minutes and brought
Lawrence on to Newberry. Coroner

THE FIRE LIMITS.
GonC2 Passes Resolutiou Ertending
Limit.-Theu Grants Permits
to Build Wooden Houses
At a meeting of the .city council on
November 2, the fire masters presen:t
ed a request that the fire limits be ex
tended 430 feet from the north side
of Harrington Street, parallel with
Harrington street from the extension
of Thompson street to Vincent street.
Council adopted a resolutioir in
dorsing the request of the fire mas
ters, but no ordinance was passed
arrying out the resolution. At the
meeting of city council on Tuesday
igh't of this week Alderman Baxter,
who had offered the first resolution,
asked that action of couneil be re
onsidered, and he offered another
resolution which was adopted, carry
ing out the same limits provided in
he first, but extending the limits to
he Southern railroad. No ordinance
was adopted by council carrying ont
hese resolutions and an ordinance
should be adopted at once.
In fact, as The Herald and News
as before stated, the wooden build
ngs in the rear of MdCGaughrin block
and Law .Range ought to be con
emned and torn down and the own
ers reimbursed for their value. It
ill not do a great deal of good to
extend the fire limits as indicated in

PRIZES TO THE BOYS.
A Number of Prizes to be Awarded
List of the Prizes-Award to be
Made November 27.
The Herald and News has from
time to time referred to the demon
stration or experiment work under
taken by the Federal government
with the boys of our public schools.
Newberry county is one of the few
counties in this State in which this
work has been carried on, and it has
been gratifying to note the interest
which our boys have taken in this
work. The efficient. superintendent
of public schools, Mr. J. S. Wheeler,
has taken an active interest in the
work, and has given encouragement
to the boys in so far as it has been
possible, by having them to meet at
his office, and on one occasion -had
arra-cged for a meeting at which Mr.
0. B. Martin, the Federal head of this
department, was to address the boys
on the work. Mr. Martin, for un
avoidable reasons, was unable to at
tend, but there were quite a number
of boys present, and they were ad
dressed by other cittzens who are al
so interested in helping to encourage
this farm work among the boys.
Mr. Wibeeltr has arranged to give
the boys a nimber of *prizes. These
prizes are given by the friends of
this movement, and the accompany
ing notice has been fiVnished The
Herald and News by Mr. Wheeler.
This is one of the most impor:ant
works ever undertaken by the Fed
eral government. If the boys can
be brought up to feel an interest in
farm work, and that it is as impor
tant and as dignified as any other
calling and profession, it. will.~ do
much towards building up the rural
distridts and keeping on the farms
the young men who will appreciate
the dignity of farm life.
Prof. Ira Williams, in charge of
the demonstration work in this State.
has been invited and has .accepted the
invitation, and will be present at the
awarding of the prizes on November
27th. It is probable that Congress
man Lever, who has taken an active
interest in this work will also be

NEWBERRY COLLEGE NOTES.
Dr .Parken Speaks.-Basket Ball.
Sophmore Declaimers.-To Due !
The students and faculty had the
rare privilege Tuesday morning of
listening to the address of Dr. Par
I ken, the distinguished traveling rep
resentative of Oxford University. Dr.
Parken is a scholarly gentleman and
of wide experience 'n traveling. We
listened with intense interest as he
told us of the noble life of Cecil
Rhodes, and what a great work this
man has done for the world by ;hav
ing given at his death his vast for
tune, in order that the pick of An
glo-Saxon sons might be educated at
this famous seat of learning in Ox
i ford. England. $125,000, a part of
the interest derived yearly from the
i entire sum of money given by Mr.
Rhodes, is annually given to two
i students in each state. of the United
- States for their support at the Uni
versity. Dr. Parken spoke with 1
much truth and force of the grand
> opportunities to be had by the stu
dent who should win one of the
s gholarships to ;Oxford.
Newberry College is the only col
lege in the .State except the Univer
si>ty of S. C., at which Dr. Parken
spoke. It was largely by the influ
ence of'Dr. Bowers, who is personal
ly acquainted with Dr. Parken, that j
i he consented to come here and New
berry feels justly proud to have had
i this eminent scholar as her guest.

rather tihan to defer until after they
are gone, when no one pays the -least
attention to what we say; but agree
with us because it. is customary and
useless. Now, I suppose that all of
those who are -entrusted with -the
management of our public affairs are
endeavoring, to do the best they can
to serve us faithfully and efficiently;
but I want to call especial attention
to one place that I do not believe re
ceives the amount of consideration
that is due. I refer to the "County
Home'' for the indigent. In the per
formance of the duty devolving upon
one, as I see it, have kept in touch
with s'aid place and wish to commend
the keeper, Mr. Epps, for his judi-1
eious management of the property of
'the county, as well as his undeviating
kindness to the unfortunate inmates
of the institution. The lands' are ~
well cared for and are being greatly
improved in productions. Tihe houses
are clean and comfortable, and thle
contented faces seen all around speak 0
louder than words of a consideration fn
seldom exercised towards those who o
are unable either to help themselves p
or to return the favor. t
In saying the above, I feel that 1 0
am simply giving honor to whom C
honor is due, and coming as close to n
doing my duty as I know how.
