A good start means a great deal to
any child, and, as far as it is practical,
each parent should be deeply concern
ed about getting children started off
right on the opening day. Mr. John B.
Mayes can give all necessary infor
mation about the books of the differ
ent grades, and every book should be
bought this week. There is no need
to wait till Monday morning to attend
to this important matter.
Bulletins have been prepared, and
will be placed in every home Monday
morning. Parents are earnestly re
quested to fully examine them, but 11
time is insufficient for this complete
examination, they are respectfully re
quested to read pages 25, 26, 27, 28, 20
and 30. These pages give specific in
formation concerning the duties of the
pupils; and parents should be proper
ly informed upon each item contained
in these pages. This will go a long
ways toward eliminating misunder
standings and unnecessary trouble.

THE NEW FIRE HORSES.
Fire Headquarters Being Enlarged and
Two Hose Wagons Will be in
One of the pressing needs of New
berry's fire department was met in the
purchase of the beautiful pair of
heavy dapple grey horses for the hose
wagon. The horses have been gener
ally admired. They are well matched
in gait, size and build, and while there
is some difference in the weight of the
two, it is expected that the lighter
horse will soon weigh as much as the
other. The heavier horse is seven
years old and weighs 1,460 pounds.
The other is six years old and weighs
1,325 pounds. In addition to being a
year younger the lighter horse is a
little gaunt, and it is thought that in
service when both horses are in prime
condition they will weigh between
1,425 and 1,450 pounds each.
As was stated in the last Issue of
The Herald and News, the horses
were purchased for the city in Knox
ville by Alderman P. F. Baxter, who
was accompanied on his trip to Knox
ville by his son, Marion, and Malcolm,
one of the hose wagon drivers. Alder
man Baxter Is being congratulated up
on his purchase not only by the mem
bers of the department, but by the
people of the city generally. The
price paid was $800 in Knoxville. With
the freight and other necessary ex
penses the cost will, of course, be a
The horses have been tried to the
wagon for exercise, but they will not
be put into service until all danger of
shipping colds as a result of their trip
from Knoxville is over.
Of the pair of horses now in use,
one will be sold and the other, "Joe,"
will be kept for service with the light
one-horse hose wagon and for tourna
ment purposes. "Joe" is the swift bay
which has been the admiration of the
crowds at tournaments in this State,
and which recently won second money
at Anderson. Additions are being made
to fire headquarters to accommodate
both wagons so as to have both ready
for calls. The grays and the two
horse hose wagon will occupy the
space heretofore used for the hose
wagon, and the one-horse wagon and
"racing Joe" will occupy quarters
which are being added to the south
side of the present bui'lding. One of
the old mArket stalls will be utilized
to make room for the addition, which
will be a part of the present building,
extending south along Nance street.
The addition will practically double
the width of the present brick struc
ture. The work of enlarging the
building is in charge of Alderman
Baxter, and the brick-laying and all
other work is being done with convict
labor, thus giving it to the city at a
minimum of expense.
The purchase of the new pair of
horses and the enlargement of the fire
headquarters, giving two hose wagons
to respond to alarms, greatly increases
the efficiency of the department, and
this forward step is highly gratifying.
There are several other particulars in
which the efficiency of the depart
ment can be further greatly increased,
and these will come in time. For a
long time The Herald and News has
been urging the necessity and the fea
sibility of a part-paid department,
keeping men on duty day and night.
It has been pointed out that the cost
to bring the department up to the nec..
essary standard would be considerably
more than overcome by the reduction
in insurance rates. In the meantime,
however, the purchase of the heavier
horses and the enlargement of the
building is a long step in the right di
rection, and city council is to be com
mended for meeting this need.
Newberry's department, while pure
ly volunteer except for the paid driv
ers, is one of. the most efficient in t.he
State. The members, without remun
eration, risk their lives in defence of
the property of the citizens of the comn
munity, and they deserve every consid
eration and the best equipment that
can be procured consistent with the
means of the city.
Church of the Redeemer.
(Rev. Edward Fulenwider, Pastor.)
The pastor having returned from his
vacation there will be regular services
at the Lutheran Church of the Re
deemer next Sunday as follows:
11 a. m. the morning service with a
sermon by the pastor on the subject,
"How to be the Richest Man in the
World." There is no subject that is
so interesting to the American mind
today as, "How to Make a Fortune."
The Great Paul said to the members
of the Christian church in the fa
Imous and wealthy city of Corinth, "In
everything ye are enriched by Him"
I Cor. 1:4.
8 p. mn. the subject of the sermon
will be, "How to Stay Rich." Both
sermons will be practical. There will
be good music at both services.
A cordial invitation to all services
Constable Blease Heard of Prisoners'
Plans and Sheriff Buford Brought
Them to Naught.
The well-perfected plans of two
white men to escape the Newberry jail
on Wednesday night came to the
knowledge of Magistrate's Constable
Cannon G. Blease on Wednesday af
ternoon, and Constable Blease Im
mediately informed Sheriff Buford of
what he had heard, and the threatened
escape was prevented. The two men
are John Dawkins and James Showes,
charged with assault and battery with
intent to kill, it being alleged that they
cut Luke Summers, a Columbia street
railway conductor, at the Little Moun
tain reunion in August..
Constable Blease received his infor
mation on Wednesday afternoon. In
company with Chief of Police Bishop,
he Immediately went to the jail to see
Sheriff Buford. The sheriff upon in
vestigation found that the two had cut
nearly through a large sill, about six
tnches in thickness, their plan being
to finish the job and come out on Wed
nesday night. The cutting was done
with a pocket knife, and the marvelous
thing is how they managed to cut
through the sill with the knife they
used. Their hands were scarred and
skinned and blistered, showing the
amount of hard work they had put on
The sheriff immediately transferred
the prisoners to a steel cell.
It will be recalled that Summers
was slashed pretty badly at the col
lege reunion. The two men who are
charged with the assault and who had
planned their escape were arrested
several miles in the county by Mr. R. C.
Boyleston, who suspicioned them, and,
using his shot gun as a warrant,
brought them to Newberry.
Little Colored Child Burned to Death.
Corrie, eight years old, the daugh
ter of Clarence Robertson and his
wife, Ccrrie, met her death by burn
ing Tuesday morning at about 10
o'clock, at her home in the city. The
child's mother was at the well, some
distance from the house, when she
heard screams. Running back to the
house she discovered that her little
girl was enveloped in flames. Smoth
ering the fire the mother summoned
help. Drs. Mower and Pelham were
called In, but nothing could be done
to save thie life of tdie little sufferer.
She died at 1.30 p. m. Weew.
It seems that the little girl had goi
to the stove and was working at some
thing on the stove when her apron
caught from the embers, which soon
blazed up and did its deadly work in a
short time. It 'was an awful death,
but purely accidental and was not due
to carelessness on thie part of the pa
rents. As before stated, the mother
'was at the well and there was no fire
in the stove, only some embers, and
in the little while that the mother was
at work In the yard the child had gone
to the stove, when the fatal accident
Artistic Display of Hats in All the
Latest Styles at Big Depart
Among the very much admired open
ing hats at the millinery opening on
Tuesday at Mimnaugh's big depart
ment store was a white bengaline hat
with black velvet facing and a huge
pair of black wings finished with
chenile across the crown. Another
very pretty hat was a rich wistaria
nobby turban of cable cord shirrijig
with dark wings of a darker shade at
the side. A large black satin and vel
vet hat with a willow plume caught
with a single gold rose was one of the
prettiest hats of the season. Still an
other very attractive hat was a black
and white beaver with a white willow
plume caught with a gold cord. A
nobby turban that attracted much at
tention was of grey velvet with Per
sian bands and a green wing to the
The display was artistically arrang

many ladies who saw it.

all shapes and descriptions. He has

Mr. Hunt Not in Mfayor's Race.
In the last issue of The Herald and

as among those who had been spoken
of by their friends in connection with
the race for mayor this fall. Mr. Hunt
has not considered the possibility of
being a candidate for mayor, and will
not be in the race. While he appre
ciates the compliment which his
