Death of Mrs. Shelton Langford.
Mrs. Nora Goggans Langford, be
loved wife of Mrs. S. S. Langford,
died at her home in east Main street
on Monday night at 9.30 o'clock, and
was buried at Rosemont cemetery
Wednesday afternoon at 6 o'clock,
service at the grave being conducted
by the Rev. Geo. A. Wright, of the
First Baptist church of Newberry.
Mrs. Langford was 52 years old, and
for the past 'yeair and a half was an
invalid, the victim of that dread dis
ease, tuberculosis. She bore her lin
gering illness with rare Christian
resignation and patience and was pre
pared for the hour which brought to
her soul the eternal rest that awaits
the saints. Beautiful was the devo
tion of the husband throughout the
long illness, and his tender. solicitude
for the dying wife during that period
Mrs. Langford was a consecrated
member of the First Baptist church
of Newberry and a woman of lofty
and noble impulses and purpose.
She was a daughter of the late Joseph
and Eustacia Goggans, of the Bush
river section of Newberry county. Be
sides the grief-stricken husband she
leaves three daughters and a son to
mourn the loss of a fond wife and
mother. The children are: Mrs. E. W.
Laney, of Cheraw; Mrs. H. 0. Shier
rill, of Georgetown; Miss Juanita and
Master Ralph Langford, of this city.
Her surviving brothers and sisters
are: Mr. B. F. Goggans, of the city;
Mrs. T. B. Leitzsey, of the county;
Mrs. A. J. S. Langford, of the city;
Mrs. T. E. Epting, of the city, and
Mr. J. G. Goggans, of Live Oak, Fla.

THE CITIC ASSOCIATION.
Doing Things-Not Great Things But
Useful-A Great Deal More
Could be Done.
The Civic association in connection
with the trustees of Rosemont ceme
tery have let the contract for rebuild
ing the pavilion in the cemetery. The
association agrees to pay two-thirds
of the cost and the trustees one-third.
This is a much needed improvement,
as the old pavilion had about rotted
The Civic association is also at
work in connection with the city au
thorities in beautifyng the vacant lot
on the side of the railroad and
near the water tank of the Southern
railway. There are other improve
ments that the association has under
advisement and which will be taken
up very soon.
Of course the association can not
accomplish a great deal without the
co-operation of the officials and the
citizens of the town. If every citizen
of the community would become a
member of the association and con
tribute but a very small amount a
great deal of work could be accom
plished in beautifying and keeping
clean the streets and the premises.
Great things can be done by co-opera
tion, but. it is uphill business when
these things are undertaken by a
few while the great majority stand off
and criticise anA kick and knock.

The Hoge School.
The closing exercises of the Hoge
school took place at the Bethleherr
church on Wednesday and Thursday
nights, June 1 and 2, 1910. The con
test of the ointh grade, which took~
place on Wednesday night, was un
usually interesting, the declamations
being well jendered. The successful
contestants were Loula Mae Pratt
and Estelle Gallman, who were
awarded with first and second prize
The program of Thursday night
was furnished by the members of the
tenth grade. There were seventeen
to complete that grade. It is very
generally agreed that this exercise
far surpassed those of former years.
That the school is making substan
tial progress year by year can not be
doubted. The attendance has reach
ed nearly 500 this year. When you
distribute these among five teachers
the principal included, you will gel
some idea of the marvelous work~
these teachers are doing. The trus
tees of our city schools have recog
nized this fact, and they have added
one more teacher for another year.
This is great help to the school, and
it is hoped that, as early as practi
cable, they may see their way to help
more in the same direction.

have a six-inch water main to the of
fice, and from there into the yard I
have a four-inch water main When
ever I try to get my insuranc6 down
to the rate I think I am entitled to,
this is what the insurance peopia tell
me: "Your water supply is n,t s'an
dard, you have a four-inch Ma- and
you ought to have a six-inch main."
This is the only reason they give me
for not reducing my rate.

THE FLAGS OF CO. "B."
President Drayton Rutherford Chap
ter Says all That Was Done Was
to Honor Veterans. -
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: Will you please print the fol
At the request of the survivors of
the Williams Guards, I secured the'
flags without any trouble whatever,
from Mrs. L. -1. Speers, not in time,,
however, for May 10.
I immediately informed Col. 0. L.
Schumpert that I had the flags in my'
possession and asked him to request
one of the survivors of the company
to be prepared to present the flags of-:
ficially to the chapter June .. Capt.
J. Wistar Gary, who was a member
of the Williams Guards when organ
ized, was expected to present these:
flags to the chapter, but for some rea
son was absent
In the programs printed in both
The Herald and News and the Ob
server, it was stated that the presen
tation of these flags would take place
There was not a survivor of the,
Williams Guards piesent, a fact:
which neither Col. Schumpert nor the
chapter should be held accountable;
for. At my request, Col. Schumpert
presented the flags and in doing so,:
plainly stated that he was not a mem
ber of the Williams Guards. He also
stated that Capt. Gary was a member
when organized, but was afterward
a member of a cavalry company. One
would have supposed that the spirit
of conradeship was sufficiently
strong among the veterans of New
berry county to warrant the steps:
taken in the presentation of the flags
in question, as not only the surviv
ors of the Williams Guards, but the
survivors of all companies from
Newberry county are now members
of the James D. Nance camp, with
Capt. Gary as commander, and Col.
Schumpert as adjutant.
If the Drayton Rutherford chapter
has stepped beyond the boundary line
prescribed by the survivors of the
Williams Guards, it was not so in
tended. All that has been said and
done was meant to honor the sur
vivors and their sacred banners.
These flags are still in the hands
of the chapter and perhaps it will be
well for the survivors of the Williams
Guards to call a meeting at an early
day and decide when and how the
chapter shall place these flags in the
relic room's in Columbia.
Awaiting~ further instructions and
in behalf of the Drayton Rutherford

Mrs. James A. Burton,
Mr. Peterson's Lettew.
My attention has just been called
to the letter of Mr. W. G. Peterson
with regard to his efforts to get pos
session of his company's flags, and I
,wish to say that the following para
graph in his letter is incorrect:
"I then appealed to Mr. G. B. Crom
er, who was the administrator of Mr.
Speers, and he said that we were
clearly entitled to the flags and
thought there would be no trouble in
securing them, but after - consulting
with Mrs. Speers, ,he informed me
that the family declined to give, them
His memory is at fault. I did not
say that the survivors were learly'
entitled to the flags, for I did not
know. When Mr. Peterson mention
,ed the matter to me I told him that
the flags were not in my hands as ad
ministrator of the estate of Mr.
Speers, and that I had nothing to do
with them. I made no effort to get
them from the family of Mr. Speers.
Before he mentioned the flags to me,
Mr. Peterson had pressed the matter
in a manner that was offensive to the
widow and daughter of Mr. Speers,
and my recollection is that they said
he threatened to bring suit against
them. They spoke to me of' Mr. Pet
erson's conduct, and it is possible
that I did tell him that they refused
to surrender the flags, but he had
found this out before he spoke to me.
I suggested to Mr. Peterson that, in
stead of presping the matter in such
a way as to annoy and irritate Mrs.
Speers, It would be better for him to
have Col. Schumpert or some other
friend of the family to ask Mrs.
Speers to turn over the flags to one
of the camps; and I had dismissed'
the matter from my mind until my at
tention was called to Mr. Peterson's
IIf Mr. Peterson had used a little of
the tact that was due to the bereav
ed wife and daughter of his old
"comrade," he might have saved him
self from the reproach of now need
lessly wounding them afresh by par
ading their natmes in the newspapers.
