NEWBERRIANS IN BENNETTS
The annual convention of the grand
lodge Knights of Pythias, which was
held last week in Bennettsville, was
a very delightful gathering. The peo
ple of. Bennettsville and Marlboro
were very hospitable and looked after
the pleasure of the visitors.
This is one of the most fertile coun
ties in the State and last year pro
duced one of the largest crops of cot
ton in the history of the county.
We found in business at Bennetts
Ville several Newberry citizens and
we were glad to know that they were
all prospering. Mr. Myer Mittle has
one of the largest stores in the town
handling millinery and dress goods.
Mr. Geo. T. Reed has a very nice
store and is doing good business,
handling general merchandise. Mr.
0. A. Matthews, son of Mr. and Mrs.
E. P. Matthews, of this county, has
an up-to-date drug store and is pros
pering. Mr. Sol Brown, who married
a Newberry girl, has one of the lead
ing furniture stores of the city, and
we understand -.at another of New-1
berry's daug'hters is soon to take up
her abode in Bennettsville. You will
find Newberry people in nearly every
community in the State, and we are;
always pleased to know that they are
GOOD ROADS CAMPAIGN.
The Daily Record of Columbia pro
poses during the summer to inaugu
rate a good roads campaign covering
the entire State in co-operation with
the county papers of the respective
counties. In this movement the Rec

The South Carolina Press associa

* Springs on the 13th of June. A very
profitable and cheap trip has been ar
ranged for the members over the new
We have not seen the program,
but we have no doubt it will be inter
esting and instructive.
Every editor and publisher in the
State should join the .association.
These annual meetings are profitable
and pleasant and by all the members'
living together in one hotel for sever
al days they come to know each oth
er better and can understand and ap
preciate each other more.
We are satisfied that the members
get more benefit from the annual
meetings by having them at a resort
* hotel where they can all be together,
and we hope that if the association
decides to hold the next meeting in
the low country that it will select a
place like the Isle of Palms.
The Winnsboro News and Herald
issued recertly a memorial edition
which is a credit to the enterprising
editor. It contained 24 pages and has
some very valuable historical articles
pertaining to the Civil war, together
with excellent half tone cuts of the
men of the county who participated
in that struggle.
It is stated that in Greenville coun
ty the petition asking for the election*
on the dispensary question has about~
2,500 signatures. There -are about 6,
Of00 voters in Greenville county and
if this petition is genuine there will
be no doubt about ordering the elec
tion, and it would seem that the senti
mnent in favor of the dispensary had
grown very much unless the petition!
is being signed by a great many peo
ple who are not in favor of its re-es
The impression seems to prevail
throughout the State that State-wlide
prohibition is not as strong as it was
two years ago. The people are comn
ing to realize that the best solution is
to make the county the unit and let
each county regulate the liquor ques
tion as may best suit the sentiment
of that county, which is good Demo
Hon. John L. McLaurin, who deliv
ered one of the welcome addresses to
the grand lodge Knights of Pythias at
Bennettsville last week, made one of
the most statesman-like speeches
that we have heard in many moons.

The Little Shop Sign.
The man from London passed in
ront of a little shop and read and re
ead the mysterious sign that was
uspended from the wall. It read:
"Englishmen Will Please Not Stand
)ver This Grating While Talking."
The more the Londor.er read the
ign the more he was mystified.
Finally he summoned up his cour
ge and entered the shop.
"Good afternoon," he greeted polite
y. "Could you tell me why you have
hat sign out there which reads:
'Englishmen Will Please Not Stand
)ver This Grating While Talking?'"
"I can, sir," replied the shopkeeper.
"And why, my good man?"
"Well, you see, if they stood there
alking they would drop their h's and
he porter would have to lose time
~oiItg down in the basement looking
And the man from London walked
way after remarking that America
~vas a "bloom' queer country."
She Poured the Tea,
he poured the tea. Ah, she was fair
is, urn in hand, she neared my chair
And stooped my waiting cup to fill.
The while I senced a wond'rous
or such a fragrance filled the air.
Twas not the tea; her wayward hair
ust brushed my cheek, and lingered
How could I calmly wait until
She poured the tea?
To steal a kiss who would not dare?
f one. who would not steal a pair?
I stole them, as a fellow will,
And sensed awarmer feeling still.
Tho' not of heart. for that's not where
She :iour'ed the tea.

CURTISS WINS FAME
AND GOLD BY FLIGHT
AEROPLANE SOARS FROM AL
BANY TO NEW YORK.
American Aviator's Craft Breaks
World's Record and Wins $10,
New York, May 29.-Glenn H. Cur
tiss flew from Albany to New York
city in an aeroplane today, winning
the $10,000 prize offered by the New
York World. He covered the distance
of 137 miles in two hours and 32 min
utes and came to earth as calmly and
as lightly as a pigeon. His average
speed for the distance-54.06 miles
an hour-surpasses any record 4ver
made by an aeroplane in long dis
tance flights and in its entirety his
feat perhaps eclipses anything man
has ever attempted in a heavier-than
The start was made from Albany at
7.03 o'clock this morning under
weather conditions as near perfect as
could be demanded. One hour and 23
minutes later he had made his stop
ping place near Poughkeepsie, where:
there was an hour's intermission. Re
suming his flight at 9.25, he sped
southward and landed within the
oundary of Manhattan Island at
10.35. Only 100 yards north of the
point on which his craft settled,
stretched Spuyten Duyvil creek; sep
arating Manhattan Island from the
mainland. Had he failed to cross this
his flight would have been in vain,:
but as he swept over it, the prize was

ON THE WITNESS STAND.
The Right of a Witness to Qualify His
Like Stevenson's child, as a rule,
the witness should speak only when
he is spoken to. He should not vol
unteer anything except that when he
is asked a question which with ap
parent innocence could really be an
swered "yes"~ or "no" he has a right
to qualify a plain "yes"~ or "no.". This
of course, happens most often in the
case of experts. The "yes, but I will
explain," and "no, but I will explain,"
of one of the distinguished expert
witnesses for the commonwealth in
the case of the commonwealth versus
Quay, which was tried before Judge
Biddle in, the court of quarter ses
sions of Philadelphia county several
years ago still linger in' the writer's
It is a mistaken notion that a wit
ness is bound to answer "yes"~ or "no."~
it is surprising that such should have
ever been, the received theory, but
then the hunting down of witches and
the expounding of the doctrine of
witchcraft were r~egarded as proper
judicial functions only a century or
two ago. The theory as to categori
cal reply was completely exploded by
the gentleman who propounded the
question, "When are you going to
stop beating your wife?" and and de
manded a categorical answer. If the
lawyer attempts to tell you that you
must answer "yes"~ or "no"~ you have
the right to say that the question is
one which is not susceptible of a
categorical answer. This should
floor counsel for the moment.
Mannerly behavior on the part of ]
witnesses includes keeping one's tem
per under almost all provocations.
Cross examination for the purpose of
testing your memory Is not intended
to be and should not be regarded as
insulting. It should therefore not be
resented. If the cross examination
transcen'ds all bounds and your pat
ience exhausted a sharp retort will
not necessarily injure your testimony
with the jury. The jury sympathizes
with the witness more than with the
lawyer, and, while mere smartness
for the sake of being smart or because
of. a too expansive personality is to
be deplored, you will be sure of a
sympathetic audience if you are in
the right and counsel in the wrong.

"This is a mighty dishonest world,
you know," said Henry Dixey, "and it
doesn't hurt to be suspicious of some
people. I sympathize with the old'

with the two hands of a clock.
"'I want yer fer to fix up dese

for mo' den six munts.'
"W.ell, where is the clock?' de
manded the watchmaker.

Giving the Devil His Due.
Patrick Grogan, an old man, has:
lived in the vicinity of Roxbury Cross
ing for years, and during the long
years of his life he had made daily
visits to a nearby saloon, never taking
more than two drinks, always going
home to his wife a sober man.
He was making one of the regular
trips one day last week and was about
to open the door to the bar room when
an elderly man, who proved to be a
minister, stopped him and said:
"My dear man, don't you know that
every tine you go into these hell holes
the devil goes with you?"
Mr. Grogan looked up at th ! sweet
face oi the good man and said:

for his own drinks."-Boston Travel
