. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
rry, S. C.. as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, January 4, 1910.
Mr. R. H. Greneker, a former
Newberrian, and for many years
4connected with the newspapers of
the county, has aeeepted a position
with The Herald, and News, and
ill solicit subscriptions, advertise
ments, job work, ancl. will colleet. for
the same. He is thoroughly known
to the people of Newberry county,
and has experience in newspaper
-work. The Herald and News will
--appreciate any courtesi4s etended
Ii Friday's' issue of The Herald
and News we had an editorial para
graph in regard to the matter of
free. lights and water to the mem
bers of the board of commissioners
of public works.
It will be recalled that the com
missioers in reply to the resolu
tions of 'council said that they re
eive&their,water and lights free by
a resolution of council.
The Herald and News simply ask
ed why tht resolution was not pub
lished, and also if it was not an un
derstanding, at that time that if
council' granted free water and
lights to the commissioners of pub
lie works, the commissioners in turn
would, grant free water and lights
to the members of couneil.
The'questions were asked in good
faith -and. were not intended to car
ry any insinuations with them, and
we are sorry that -the chairman of
the board seems to think that they
do. We have since secured a copy of
of the resolation which was passed
on .SeptPembr 30, 1901, the minutes
stating thatt the full counicil was
presenit. The resolution read#:
"Resolved:i Tha.t the ,(ommission
erg of Public 'Works'of the Town of
-Newberre, be -'fuhished lights and
waters free of- charge durinig th-eir
term of offce. 'i.
We repeat our questions, --by wh'at
authority' of law council authorizes
free water and lights to anybody ?
We have no objeetion to the mem
bers of the commssig receiving'free
water and lights, or 'even receiving
a salary for their services, but we
simnply .inquire, by what authority
of law they' receive a salary and if
hbis resolution Is perpetual' and
stands for all time, -or whether .or
' not it referrad to~ the term of offie
of the 'then commission, or -whether
it -was during the term of .offie -of
the then city coneil'
ROADS- AND RURAL ROUTES.
We ~desire -to direet ,the attention
4f'tieparons'of the rural free de
livery routes, to ..n articele -printed
*elsewhere in The Herald and News,
from the 'president of dh Nwberry
We do not know the conditions of
the roads ios this county, but we have
felt all the while that5if they -were
not kept 'in good condition and the
\matter was broughty to the at,ten
tion of the Departmient,. that the
possibility- existed of having some
of the rural routes .discontinued.
The Herald and News has, from
time to time, called attention to the
importance of keeping the roads in
better condition, and it is well that
the patrons of these rural routes
should -consider seriously the quo
tations contained in the article of
the president of the Newberryi asso
eiation from the offiials at Wash
We fear sometimes that our peo
ple do not appreciate the advantages
ofgooa roads. Thei'e as been noth
ing unidertaker by-:the iederal gov
ernment since the foiinding of the
republic, that is of so great import
ance and value to the pe~ople who
live in the rural districts, as the
free delivery of mail. Thei'e is no
excuse for the roads in this county
to get i-n the condition which they
-do at certain seasons of the year, ex
ep he indifference of the apeople
We have -come to 1depend too much
on the chaingang to keep up the
roads. A little assistance from the
people who live in the country and
who use the roads most, and a little
work on their part, would do a great
deal towards giving better roads in
this county. We -have the material
to make sand and elay roads, to make
gravel roads, or to make macadam
roads. All that is necessary is to get
to work and do it.
The people seem not ready to spend
any money by taxation for this
purpose, and therefore they ihould
be willing to utilize their labor and
their teams in keeping t1he public
roads in good condition.
We had thought that when the
4ne mile of experiment road, .which
was built by the government, had
been used by our people, that it
would stimulate an interest in build
ing other roads of like character.
This road, we- are told, gets better
the longer it is used, and some of
the automobilists say that they can
make sixty miles an hour on~it with
greater ease and less injury to their
machines than they can make eight
or ten miles an hour on the ordi
nary road. This wil apply with
equal force to buggies and wagons.
It will permit less time in coming
to -town also the hauling of heavier
loads with greater ease to the teams.
A MOLSAGE TO THE FARMERA
Dr. Knapp's Address to be Deliyered
at Greenville, S. C., on Jan
A great deal of interest has been
manifested, editorially and otherwise
throughout the South, in the coming

,the Department of Agriculture in
:January, and many inqdries have
I been received by him asking what
topics he will discuss on this jour
ney. Dr. Knapp has very ki-nd.ly
.consented to furnish the press, anqI
through the press the farmers, with
the subjeets of his addresses.
At ~reenivilla, South Carolina,
where:;li will speak on January 12thi
at -12:00 o 'clo:k in., his toipic wil
be "The Makino'.of a-.Great Comimoa
People iin the Nhiral IDistriets.'' His
object in -this "address is to imiprs
upp. the farmers of South ,Carolina
some definite line of work, which, if
consistently followed, will make
South Carolina with all its natural
resurces, a great State in whieh the
rural masses will be prosperous.
Th4 same general method will be
pursued in th.e ad-iresses in the sev
eral States,, outlining in eaeh such
policies as are. most important and
applicable .to the -rura-l population.

It will be recalled that the legis

1onditioned upon Dr. Johnson rais

.ime Dr. Johnson thought that a
45,000 building would be ample.
But he soon drew away from these
modest plans and made up his mind

With this purpose in view, he.
promptly raised the $25,000 required
by the State legislature. This gave
him $45,000. Then' he wnt to New
York and had an interview with Mr.
J. Pierpont Morgan .and ,Andrew
Carnegie, the multi-milionaires. Mr.
Morgan gave $25,000 and Mr. Car
