I have been wanting to get to some
4ue of the county campaign meetings
so as to b- able to hear all of the can
didates, but this weather is so hot I
can't keep cool at home and it must
be hard work to listen to so many
speeches and then eat the fine barbe
cue dinners the good people of New
berry county know how to serve. I
wish I could vote for all the candi
dates but then you know I can't. I
always did feel sorry for the candi
iate and yet I know he is happy or
always- pretends to be and sometii: s
I expect a large part of his happiness
is only on the surface.
Speaking about candidates, I read
the following somewhere recently and
it may be appropos-is that good?-at
this time. Read it:
The News of the Settlement.
'"Politics all the rage hero, and de
leated candidates will soon be doing
all the raging. Farmers threaten to
sue them for damages, caused by
'wearin' off the hinges on the home
:gates; they've got to do some fence
- ixin', yet all of 'em say its too hot
to split rails; their business, they tell
us, is to 'save the State,' and yet, the
State looks healthier than they do,
an' full able to save itself. However,
they don't want the whole earth, but
will be satisfied with all the offices in
I wonder if any of our fishermen
you know every other day a party
from Newberry goes a fishing-have
had the happy surprise of the editor
'who relates his experience as follows
-he calls it a birthday surprise:
"We celebrated our birthday on
Tuesday last," says the editor of the
Adams Enterprise, "by going fishing
with an old friend who grew up with
us and is familiar with our ways. We
did not carry a jug with us, but, to
our great surprise, found a two-gal
Ion ame in the hollow of a cypress log.
Have no idea who put it there. Dea
con Brown went fishing the day be
. ore, but, of course, we don't accuse
1im, as the jug was half-full when we
Tound it. We did not hurry home. We
fished all day, all. night and all next
morning. The jug was all we caught
--but it was a plenty!"
In North Carolina it has been de
cided that there is no law to prohibit
.a rooster from crowing. It is held
that it is the high prejogative of a
ooster to crow at any time that he
elects. It seems they have a law up
there to prevent a chicken to roam at
large, but that does not apply to a
crowing ro'oster and I don't reckon it
would apply to a crowing hen, or a
cackling hen for that matter. In some
places they have laws to prevent jack
asses braying in the town and thus
disturbing the quiet slumbers of the
inhabitants and even in Newberry
there is an ordinance to prevent the
blowing of a railroad whistle or ring
ing a railroad bell by any train pass
ing through the incorporate limits of
the city-that is while in the city
limits. I do not see why it should not
also apply to chicken roosters and
chicken hens crowing or caciing ard
also to some human noises I have
heard which sometimes by a stretch
et the imagination some people call
vocal music and accompanied by what
they call a piano. But I must get back
-to the chicken. I read the following
account of the trial and acquittal of
the rooster in some paper:
Judge P. C. Cocke, police justice or
the city of Asheville, has proved him
self a friend of the old dominicker
rooster in the exercise of their high
prerogative in crowng thrice before
daybreak. Judge Cocke held that
.crowing before daybreak was an in
herent right of a rooster and one that
neither could the "Weaver chicken
law" nor the State of North Carolina
take away. There is nothing in the
statute books which prohibits a roos
ter from crowing and the Weaver law
was brought from the dusty shelves
in an effort to bring relief. This law
forbids chickens to disturb neighbors
by running at large. The case grew
cut of a warrant sworn out by Stanley
Hfowland, a neighbor of Dr. Winston's.
Th which i-r was comnplin0d that the
his neighbors that he would do all he
could to keep his roosters at home
but he would not bargain to keep them
from crowing. Dr. Winston, who is a
former president of the A. & M.
and University of North Carolina, now
retired on the Carnegie fund, is of
fe-ing a reward of $5 to any -ine who
can offer a remedy for keeping his
rooster from crowing and yet not in
jure him. Should the tongue be slit
he would be subject to the S. P. C. A.,
so he is awaiting the suggestion.
Seems to me here is a suggestion
contained which if grasped at the pro
per and opportune time by some of our
legislators. or legislative candidates,
contains the germs for a reputation
and a fame far beyond anything to be
at+inid by discussing or cussing the
liquor question. It is this, pass a
law regulating the crowing of a roos
ter or the cacling of a hen or the
braying of an ass within certain lim
its of a dwelling or of the making of
any other unseemly and discordant
noise so as to disturb the quiet and
peace and slumber of the community,
and also to prevent all such animals
running at large unless they are prop
erly labeled and muzzled. There is
greater opportunity for fame in this
proposition than there is in "Uncle
Godfrey's" dog bill or his safety match
proposition. I don't charge any of
you anything for the suggestion.
P. S.-I will continue my ideas
along this line in my next. It is too
hot to be long drawn out. T. I.
Mr. Branson's Card.
To the Editor of The Herald and
News: The card of Mr. Brunson, that
you copy from the State, does Mr.
Featherstone grave injustice. T-!
statement that Mr. Featherstone ha.l
any purpose to disband the prohibi
tionists is absurd, and the statement
that, just a few weeks before. he
joined in a meeting to put in the fif ld
a State ticket on a prohibition-license
1platform," is utterly without founda
tion. The following men were at the
meeting at the Jerome hotel to which
Mr. Brunson refers: the Rev. Lou!s J.
Bristow and Messrs. Hamel, C. C.
Featherstone, J. A. McCullough, W. P
Houseal, W. H. Wallace, C. A. Smith.
J. A. Hoyt and George B. Cromer. I
think Mr. Brunson will find it hard to
convince the people of this State that
these gentlemen were in favor of' a
prohibition-license, or any other sort
of license, or that they were false to
the cause of prohibition. The main
purpose of the meeting, as I under
stand it, was to try to devise some
plan by which the State dispensary
could be destroyed and to discuss the
advisability of having some man an
nounce himself as candidate for gov
ernor arid some one as a candidata
for the United States senate, on an
anti-dispensary platform. Nothing
was said or done by Mr. Featherstone
or any other member of this confer
ence, that was in favor of a license or
that was unfavorable to prohibition
It was the sense of the meeting that
it would be unwise for the prohibi
tionists to put out a State ticket, and
Mr. Featherstone was simply cac'ry
ing out the views of those that were
at this conference when, a short time
later, he attended the meeting of the
prohibtionists and used his influe'jce
against the nomination of a State fick
et. Im may add, as a further act o!
justice to Mr. Featherstone, that he
was not seeking the office of gover
nor at that time, but that Mr. Joseph
A. McCullough was urged by a num
ber of the members of the conference
to allow his name to be user. The
to allow his name to be used. The
Brunson's card is that he has been
grossly deceived or misinformed.

The heating apparatus is in the

ways lead to each toilet room from

One of the novel features of this

It is a new device, called the "fan
ventilator," by which the air, in each
room is changed and purified five

This is a buildinght. the trustees
of the school and the citizens at

be a monument to the city, when all
