NEWBERRY'S POLICE OFFICERS
Something of the Men Who Are the
Conservators of the Peace-4Good
The Herald and News presents
today cuts of the police officials of
the city. There has been such good
order in the city for so long a time
s:nd so little work really for the po
licemen to do that some of our peo
ple may not know that we have a
police offioer in the town. This has
been true for a year or more, in
fact, it is always pleasant -to be able
to say that the police have nothing
to do. They are one set of officers
that everybody prefers shall have
as little to do as possible. Now and
then some one gets a little more
booze in a prohibition town tha.n he
ought to have and as a result he is
taken in cdtody, either for that
reason, or because as the result of
his imbibing too freely he gets into
a disturbance with some one, at any
rate it is a compliment not only to
the good order of the people of the
community, but also to the efficiency
of the police that there is not much

Policeman H. H. Frakli
Mr. H. H. Franklint has the dis
tinction of having served continual
ly, with the exception of possibly a
few months, longer on the force
than any other man in the history
of the town. He first became a po
3ieeman in 1884, 26 years ago, and,
as stated, has been on the force in
Newberry since that time with the
exception of a few months.
He is a native of the county and

:twenty yvears old and clerked for
