XORE RURAL TELEPHONBS.
- Mr. J. P. Harmon Builds Line to
Prosperity.-Thiird Oable Be
tween Prosperity and New
Another rural telep:hone line has
recently been established and con
nected with the Prosperity line. The
leading spirit in building this line,
and in fact it is known as his line, is
Mfr. J. P. Harmon, of the Saluda sec
tion of Newberry county. The follow
ing are the subscribers:
J. S. Bowers, W. P. Leaphart, J.
P. Rarmon, Sidney Stoekmnan, Clar
-'nce Dominick, and N. E. Bowers.
Almost every section of Newberry
county is connected by telephone ex
e ept Chappells. The Herald and News
\ understood some time ago that efforts
* were being made to establish a line
from Newberry to Chappells, and it
is very much hoped that this will
be done in the near future.
The fact is that it is very much
more iWnportant now than it was here
tofore. The new schedule on the
Southern makes it very convenient
for the people of this section of the
county to come to Newberry and in
coming as they will, they will become
eloser to our people, and will desire
more to have telephone connections.
We hope this line will be built very
There has been a great deal of
~compalaint, and justly so, that with
only one cable between Prosperity,
and Newberry, the almost uni
versal answer when you ask cen
tral :to get Prosperity, was, "line
busy.'' Two new cables have recently
been conneeted.between Prosperity and
Xeherry, making now three cables
which it is claimed will be amply suf
ficient to handle all business between
the .two places, and to permit one to
get prompt service.

A NEWBBRRY BOY.
That Is His Better Half is Newberry.
-Is Succeeding in His North
In this -week's issue of Leslie's
Weekly, .o) , a. page given exclusively
to prominent citizens and leading
business establishments of Minneap
olis. Minn., appears a cut of Mr.
Charles' L. Trabert, who, it is stated,
is president of the choral club, and
secretary of the C. A. Smith Lu~mber
Mr. Tra-bert is a graduate of New
berry college and is further identified
with Newberry by the fact that Mrs.
Trabert is a native of this city, the
~daughter of Mr and Mrs. Os Wells.
Newberry, therefore, feels an interest
in the success of Mr. Trabert, and we
take pleasure in giving publicity to
the fact of the success which he is at
taining in his western homze.
Is Trying to Arrest Him,
'Last week The Herald and News
printed . the statement that Joe
Wheeler, charged with murder, had
been seen in No. nine township, in
the community in which the murder
was committed, and that he .had not
been arrested. We also stated that
we did not know what efforts had
been made,'-if anay, to arrest him. It
was further stated th-at the governor
had offered no reward for his arrest.
Sheriff Buford feels.that this state
ment does him an injustice. He says
tiat he has heard that Wheeler has
been seen in the community and that
it is a fact that the governor has not
offered a reward. Sheiif Buford says
that he has been in that community
several times, looking for Wheeler,
and has been trying very hard to lo
cate him, hut has been unable to do
-o. That his trips there have been
made at night so that he might not
be seen. As to the reward, of course
it is known that the offieers in the
ounity do not receive rewards for ar
esting fugitives from justice in their
on county. -
Col. W. H. Hunt will make an ad
dess before the Johnstone High
shool at 1:30 o'clock on Friday af
ternoon. On the same afternoon at
the same place at 4:30 o'clock there
will be a meeting to organize a Ru

The Herald and News takes great
pleasure in mentioning the success of

made their homes in other places.
Some of the older people in Newber

in business and became mayor of the

when the la.tter came in tee. room she
found that the rars had bitten t.he
little child on the 'hands several times
and had gnawed off one of ther finger
