E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New
-krry, S. C.. as 2nd class matter.

AN UNNECESSARY REPLY.
"So insignificant a mark" as Th
Herald and News, as our kind cotemn
porary is pleased to call us, is the ob
ject of a lengthy editorial in Tues
day's Observer, the strained melo
drama of which is happily relieved b:
its comic side.
This lengthy deliverance is repro
duced in another column of The Her
ald and News today and speaks for it
self. As to the "reporter incident,
as it is denominated by the Observei
the Observer's course of action is ;
matter between it and its conscience
We must confess that our idea o
newspaper ethics differs from tha
which it seems is held by the Obser
ver, but possibly the Observer ha
ruled us outside the pale of newspape
ethics. We are not interested in tha1
and that is neither here nor there. W
regret, however, that the little editor
ial in The Herald and News to whic]
the Observer replies should have caus
ed such an exclamation of pain fror
our cotemporary and should have re
quired so much of its valuable spac
for an explanation. We never like t
cause any one pain.
In all probability we would no
have noticed the Observer's editoria
at all except for the fact that we wan
to relieve our cotemporary's mind C
any impression that it has caused u
suffering, lest that impression shoul
cause our kind-hearted cotemporar
much mourning and loss of sleep. Th
Observer is of the opinion that it
"darts against deadheadism and th
liquor traffic, etc., though not aime
at so insignificant a mark," ar
"rankling" in the heart of The Her
aId and News. To say the least, th
conceit of this utterance is somewha
ludicrous, and possibly our cotempor
ary meant for it to appear in its "Ma:
Cause a Smile" column. We may bi
dense, but we are forced to the admis
sion that we don't even know wha
the Observer has reference to b:
"darts" against the liquor traffic, al
applied to The Herald and News. No:
are we interested. We suppore it:
"darts" against "deadheadism" r'efer ti
the efforts which the Observer has bee:
making to control the business trans
actions of the newspapers of Soutl
Carolina with the railroads. It will bl
recalled that, after exchanging adver
tising for transportation for a numn
her of years, thce Observer -:uddenl:
decided that it was all wrong, anc
not satisfied with running its ow3
business, immediately began a cam
paign to whip all the other news
papers in line. T Observer ha<
changed his mindnn the Obser
ver's opinion therd be nothini
else for the other ~papers to di
except to change their minds, and i
they wouldn't do it of their own ac
cord, then the Observer wanted th
legislature to force them to agree wit:
the Observer. We beg to assure th
Observer that it need not worry abou
these "darts" rankling in our heari
because The Herald and News know
the enthusiasm of reformed reformer
-not to mention their fanaticism. T
be plain, the Observer's warfare re
minded us of the campaigns of Do:
Quixote, taking harmless objects fc
giants, but fighting hard, neverthelesi
and in his conceit never being able t
distinguish the difference.
The Observer takes occasion to tel
us that it has despaired of ever rut
ning a newspaper to suit us. That i
another matter which we assure th
Observer it need lose no sleep ove:
The Observer suits us very well, an
we regret very much that The Heral
and News does not suit the Observe:
though it seems that some member
of The Herald and News force sul
the Observer exceedingly well. Som
of these days the Observer is going t
despair of trying to run all the news
papers of the State as the Observeri
We shall not use ugly or sneerin
words in speaking of our cotempor
ary. They really don't do any goo
or strengthen any position, and as th
Observer grows older it will find thi
to be true. This advice is given witli
out charge and in the most kindi
With this the matter is ended, s
far as we are concerned. As we state
in the beginning, the Observer's edi
torial, as we see it, really needed n1
reply, as it carried its own answe:
but lest the Observer worry undul
about our feelings and "darts" ran!
ling i. our hrat we feit it our duti
to assure it that it wais only its ore:
weening conceit which gave it this in:
Another parting word of advice,
we may be permitted: It is never we
ao fl into tantrums. They don't d
any good and especially are the3
harmful in this kind of weather. There
may be danger of getting overheated
and this is sometimes productive oi
One word more and we are done:
Our health is fairly good. Our heart
is all right. We haven't made a for
tune, nor a near-fortune, but it is not
because we have not followed the plan
which made a whole family in Geor
gia rich. It will be recalled that it is
said that once upon a time a whole
family in Georgia became wealthy by
attending to its own business.
The Herald and News prints today
icuts of five of the six candidates for
governor. We made an effort to se
cure a cut of Mr. Jno., T. Duncan, the
other candidate, but neither The Her
ald and News nor Mr. Duncan could
secure any of his cuts in time.
The State campaign party will close
the campaign in Newberry tomorrow.
The Herald and News today gives the
views of all the candidates for gover
nor on the questions being discussed
Only a small percentage of the vot
r ers will attend the meeting, so by
reading The Herald and News you can
form a correct idea of the position of
these gentlemen on the live isses.
The cuts used by The Herald and
News today of the five candidates for
governor were kindly loaned us by
the Columbia Daily Record. We de
sire to acknowledge this courtesy and
to express our appreciation.
t SEND RETURNS.
I The Herald and News would request
the managers of the primary next
Tuesday to send us the result of the
lelection as soon as the votes are
counted. Either by wire or phone.
'The Herald and News phone is Num
ber 1. We would be pleased to have
e you phone as the count progresses.
We will be glad to answer the phone
and give information to any of our
-ifriends in the country who have
phones if they will call Number 1. Do
not fail to give us the vote at your
club just as the count progresses.
One of the prettiest pieces of roa1
we have seen in South Carolina is the
stretch from Greenville to Easley. The
men who built this road should be re

some more work.

OVER STATE HIGHWAY.
September 6 is the date that has
been set for the trip over the variou.s
routes to Columbia, the best of which
will be chosen as the State highway.
John Wood, secretary of the chain
ber ofcommerce decided yesterday

it is not thought will have any ob
The trip over the different routes
will take at least four or five days,
