Newberry: The city that does
The people of No. 4 township have
the right idea about getting roads in
this county. So long as everybody de
pends cn the chaingang and waits
*.cr the chaingang to come in order to
build the 'roads we will never bave
roads in Newberry county. It is a
physical impossibility; without pres?
ent chaingang. to keep up all the
roads in the county without the help
and cooperation of the peopla gener
ally. In fact we 1-,lieve that if the
supervisor would adopt the plan of
taking his chaingang into the commu
nity where the citizens offer to co
opeate and assist in the wofkii-; -01
the roads with their teams and wag
pns, it would stimulate an int-rest
and in this way a great deaI more
could be done for the improvercent of
our public roads. There should b-e
self.help in tbs as in cth?z matters
and when it was understood that the
chaingang wcid? go to tha. (Xilr +
Uity which first offered to assis in the

other parts of the county to help in

I read -in a paper the other day
where a man was sentenced to the
chaingang for three' months for giv-.
eing away a drink of whiskey. This is
not news to the close reader of the
newspapers because it -happened sev
- eral weeks ago, but I just noticed it
the other day. I am not givng it as
news. But I was just wondering and
thinking. I believe it was stated that
the prohibition law passed in 1909
made it a crime to give away a drink
of whiskey. Is it true that we have
come to t1"t in the da-wn of this 20th
century, civilization., And as a result
are we getting tetter and . are our
ideals and our ideas, higher and no
bier and purer? Are a o better-red1
17 better-as a result' of suaJ regisla
tion.. You know the whole thing of
passing so many dont's is repugnant
to me, but as I am part of the old re
gime I thought maybe I was a back
niumber and I am seriously asking if
all this don't legislation is making the
standard of citizenship higher and
purer and better and' nobler? Is it?

Then look what a great interest is
being taken in the Johnson-Jeffries
prize fight. A white man and a negro
going into the~ arena and engaging in
a fight. It is :nore barbarous and un
civilized than are the: . Spanish bull
fights. And yet the people who are
arianging for it claim they will clear
$100,000. Seats sold for $50 each. -I
saw in some paper where a holiness
negro congragation w'as going to hold
service all day during the fight and
have prayer and song for the success
of Johnson. Are these symptoms of
better times- and a purer and higher
living? The great American people
will have special bulletiL-s all ovor the
country taking ihe news from -his
contest between the negro and the
white man and yet pass a law that
will put me on the&chaingan2g if I give
nty friend a high bail or a miut julep.
It all seems very queer to me, but I
reckon I am out of date and out of
touch with modern civilization ano
Did you read in the paper the other
day where a judge out in Illinois had
read nor taught in 'the public school
and that there must be no religious
xc':Cises?N Well, I did.
I read somewhere that the city of
Columbia was going to pass an ordi
nance against dogs running on the
street without a muzzle. Seems to me
that Newberry passed such an ordi
nance some time ago. Am I right,
or not? Guess it must be so for I saw
a great big grown man:m on tbe streol
the other day following a string tha:
was fastened to the neck of a big,
fierce looking, bob tail, bull dog. I
don't know where the dog was taking
!him, but I suppose it was just show
ing him the town or maybe was try
ing to find The Idler's park. -And then
a couple weeks ago I saw another
fierc. looking "bull dog following a
buggy and there was no string to his
neck and no muzzle over his nose. But
then he was keeping close up to the
buggy, and nobody could get in his
way. That must be a peculiar kind of
charm which brings a grown man to:
love one o fthese animals.
if the visitors in the city next week
to the P. L. C. convention should ob
serve that the city clock is a little fast,
it should not be taken as an evidence
that this is a' fast town or as an indi
cation that we desire they shall hurry
away or anything of that kind. It is'
just tour way, so that the street force
may get to work on time and get to
stop a little ahead of time. That is
all. The clock is correct, only it Is
about eight minutes fast.
