PULLMAN BETWEEN COLUMBIA
The question of putting a parlor
car on the Atlantic Coast Line, C., N.
& L. and C. & W. C. between Green
ville and Charleston, is being agitat
ed by the chamber of commerce of
Sumter and has been taken up with
President Childs by the chamber of
commerce of Columbia. This mat
ter was agitated some time ago by
The Herald a'ad News and the
In a conversation some time ago
with President Childs, of the C., N.
& L., he stated that he could not
with his present equipment, handle
this additional car, and to do so
would necessitate a heavier engine,
which he did not think his road-bed
would stand if the present fast
schedule was maintained. Mr. Childs
stated that he had secured the very
best possible coaches that are oper
ated by the Coast Line and had ar
ranged to have them run through
from Charleston to Greenville with
out change, and in his judgment it
was better to keep this first-class
equipment and good schedule, which
would accommodate all who travel
on his line, rather than to put on a
lighter and cheaper equipment for
the general travel and the parlor
car, which would be used by only' a
few. For these reasons Mr. Childs
does not think it advisable or feasi
ble for him to accede at the request
for a parlor car equipment.
The Coast Line, if it desires,
might operate a parlor car between
Columbia and Charleston as is done
by the Southern.
Mr. Childs stated that he had been
making an effort to put a Pullman
on b's afternoon and morning trains,
and in connection with the Seaboard,
operate the Pullman between Colum
bia a.nd Atlanta. This would make
the travel between Columbia and
Atlanta much more comfortable and
convenient than the schedule now
operated. It would permit passen
gersi from Columbia to Atlanta to
take the sleeper at Columbia and
reach Atlanta for breakfast without
change. Retuirning, passengers
could leave Atlanta after the day's
business, and be in Newberry next
morning for breakfast or in Colum
bia by 10.30 o'clock. Such a Pull
man service Mr. Childs is very anx
ious to put on and it has been up
to the Seaboard for some time. This
would be a great accommodation for
persons visiting Atlanta, and we
would be glad to see the chambers
of commerce along the line take
hold of the proposition which we
believe would meet the approva' of
both roads concerned.
Mr. Childs does not think that the
parlor car service would pay his
road and for that reason in addition
to the fact that it could not be handl
ed with his present equipment, he is
not willing to undertake it.
According to the law quoted by
Major Francis W. Higgins it would
seem that any teacher to be eligi
ble to election by the toard of trus
tees of the city school must either
have a diploma from some chartered
college in South Carolina, or hold a
first grade certificate from the board
of examiners for Newberry county.
This must be held by the teacher
when elected. That being the case
the young man who is elected as
principal was ineligible at the time
of his election, and, therefore, no
rincipal has been legally elected.
In the'daily 'papers this week giv
ing the provisions of the public build
ings' bill we did not notice any men
tion made of the increase for the
building at Newberry. When we
were in Washington some two weeks
ago, we were told that a provision
for $10,000 increase at Newberry was
in the bill, making the total of $60,
000 for the building here. A fifty or
sixty thousand dollar governmem.
building doesn't make much show,
and really Newberry ought to have
at least a $75,000 building, but we
will be delighted if the government
will proceed with the building such
as we are to have and get it complet

They tell Jne that "Talking it
Over" in the Augusta Chronicle has
been appointed postmaster at Augus
ta. Just think of it! An ordinary
newspaper man to get such a fat
berth. Wonder why somebody didn't
tell President Taft about me. I am
sure he would have remembered ma
in some substantial way if he only
knew what great and unselfish labor
I had rendered the people. I hope
somebody will call me to his atten
tion. He might have some sort of a
job I could fill. And I am sure he
has a tender spot in that big heart
of his for all newspaper man for I
am told that he was once a newspap
But then I am not what could be
termed a newspaper reporter. I on
ly write this stuff for the lova of it
and have to live by some other way.
My wants are few and simple, and it
does not take much to supply them.
But I would like to draw a good
monthly stipend from Uncle Sam for
a short time just to know what sort
of sensation it would create.
I was walking down one of these
paved sidewalks we have in New
berry the -other day and I was just
wondering why the people who have
the privilege of having this modern
'improvement in front of their doors
permitted the dirt to get so thick on
these walks when it would be so easy
to keep them clean. Just a little
broom exercise for a few moments
every morning would keep them
clean. A little self-help-call it phy
sical culture, you know-would add
so much to the improvement -of the
streets. I suppose they are waiting
for the chaingang. Or maybe they
are afraid somebody else would en
joy walking on a clean sidewalk.
I heard a gentleman say once when
the question of voting bonds for
roads in No. 6 was up that some peo
ple up there would not vote for bonds
for roads because the people of No.
7 township would have to use the
roads in coming to Newberry. They
did not propose to build roads for the
use of the people of No.. 7. That is
one way -to look at It.
Until civic pride begins at home
and in front of your own door it can
not take hold of the community. No
body will dispute that When I was
young I use to hear some of the old
farmers talk about book farming and
they didn't have much faith- In it.
The reason was that some of the
fellows who made the prettiest and
most eloquent agricultural address
es and orations were the most miser
able failures with their farms. I
have seen a little of that sort of
I reckon it was somewhat like that
old preacher who served a certain
congregation in this county in the old
days and was probably not always a
shining example of rectitude and
right living. or probably realized that
he was human and liable to depart
from the straight and narrow path.
At any rate it was to.ld of him that he
advised his flock to do as he told them
and not as he did.
I expect when the whole thing is
reduced to its last analysis we can
all tell the other fellow better how
to do than we can show him by exam-,
ple. It is so much easier, you know.
That is the reason I' am telling you
hwto keep your sidewalks in front
of your own door. You know how.
clear our vision becomes when direct
ed at the other fellow. We can see
the mote in his eye even with the'
big beam in our own eye which we~
do not see. Did you ever notice what'
an ardent prohibitionist some peo
pie are who once tried to drink all'
the liquor that was manufactured.
Why they don't want a fellow to have
a little for personal use. Do you
think it is for real love of fellow
man? Think about it a moment.
Why, Mr. Editor, here is your co -
temporary who doesn't want any of
you editors to ride on a railroad pass
in exchange for advertising because'

ing one of these p)asteboards for 25,

bribery, and he is constantly talking
about it. He wants to save all you
fellows. Is it for real, true, love of

self," or words to that effect. Self
examination is a great thing if done
in humility and not with too exalted
opinion of yourself.
I was not joking the other day
about that old burned building in
Friend street near the depot. It can
not give the stranger a good taste of
Newberry as he passes along on the
train and I wish there was some way
to get it removed.
All this that I am telling you about
Newberry is for real love of my peo
ple and for their happiness. It doesn't
make a snap of your finger's differ
ence to me personally whether you do
any of the things I have advocated or
not. I am satisfied. I do not desire
to own any real estate in Newberry.
I,Von't pay any tax and have no prop
erty to be enhanced in value and that
park and other improvements can't
by any possibility be of any financial
benefit to me. I don't care whether
you move the government postoffice
in Main street, or down in the bot
tom in front of the jail, or build it
where the government elected to put
it, so far as I am personally concern
ed. But I just can't help telling you
what is best to be done because I
see with an impartial eye and with
no beam in it.
You know, some times I have
wished I was more selfish. That is
the way to make the dollar. Look
out for yourself and put .the dollarl
in your pocket and when you get it
the dollar-you are it, and nobody
cares how it came.
I have -been wondering why the
town clock is always about 5 to 8
minutes fast. The clock seems to
keep good time but is always just a
little ahead. Seems to me that it
ought to be made to keep correct
time. Will some one answer why
it is kept a little ahead of time.

Seldom is a second thought given to
the common house fly. It has always
been considered a nuisance, but re
cent studies have shown it to be very
much more than a mere nuisance.
The germs of intestinal and filth dis- "
eases are readily. carried in large -
numbers from the excreta of patients ter
suffering from typhoid, dysentery
and cholera direct to food intended th~
for human consumption and even to . I

Flies breed in filth and offal of any Lii
kind, preferring above all else the.
fresh droppings of horses and mules.
Large numbers wll develop in human1
excrement and in garbage barrels, at
places where dish water is thrown1
out a'nd wherev6r decaying animal or
vegetable matter occurs.
The adult flies are constantly pass
ing back and forth from such ma
terials, where they deposit their eggs, e
to other materials upon which they
themselves feed. They prefer sweets,
but are attracted by almost any kind
of human food.
Flies do not ordinarily travel to
any great distance and if a little care
is taken their numbers may be great
ly reduced. Especially does the far -I1
mer have the chance of abating the
pest so far as his own premises are
The eggs laid by flies hatch in
about a day into the famiar white
maggots. After about five days spent
feeding, if the food supply is unlimit
ed, and a couple of days in a resting
stage, the adult fies appear. It
takes them slightly more than a l
week from fly to fly. If manure can
be disposed of, hauled to either' the
field or a compost heap some dis
tance from the house every five to
seven days, no flies will be able to p
develop. If it is not possible to thus. Ue
dispose of the manure, it may be pos
sible to provide a room, dark and.
thoroughly screened into which the
manure may be put until it can be Fo
Of all the substances used to kill or
repel flies the one which has provenJ
most satisfactory is ordinary air
slacked lime. Lime Is a first class
deordorant. A free use of it around
all stables, privies and garbage cans
will cause those ploces to lose half of
their disagreebale features, and they m
will cease to be attractions and
breeding places for that menace to US
health-the common house fly.
