The Herald and News is issued on i
Tkursday morning, or rather late r
tWednesday evening, in order to give s
,he force holiday for Thanksgiving.
.E newspaper work there are very fews
holidays, the strain continuing every t
iay in the week and through Sundays, c
'ad The Herald and News tries to
maake it a rule to give its force an op
portunity to observe Thanksgiving s
aad to take off a couple days at Christ
This setting apart by the president
of the nation and the governors of the
various States of one day for the giv
ing of thanks to the Creator for his v
goodness and mercies during the past C
twelve months is a beautiful custom. e

such distress that he can not look v

which he should be thankful.
WHAT ABOUT THAT RAI]ROADI
We hope that the railroad commit
tee of which Dr. Jas. McIntosh is I
chairman, will get together and fmd <
out just what the promoters of this
proposed road from Augusta to Spar
tartburg expect of Newberry, and have
a meeting of the chamber of com
merce so that we -may get busy and do
This is probably the last opportunity
for Newberry to secure a through line
from the North and West. It will
mean a great deal, not only for the
oity, but for the entire county, and
especialy for that section between
Newberry and Saluda river, and New
berry and Whimire.
Every .man through whose land the
road will go ought to be wflling to
give the right of way without ques
tion, and every encouragement should
be given for the building of this road.
We lost a great opportunity some
years ago simply by our indifference.
The Seaboard offered to come through
Newberry and only asked the right of
way and the good will. The people
in control of affairs at that time
seemed to think there was nothing
back o,f the proposition and gave no
encouragement and the result is the
road just passed around us. We must
not -let history repeat itsdlf in this
THE "GET-TOGETHER" SPIRIT.
We desire to direct attention to
the address of Secretary A. McP.1
Hamby, of the chamber of commerce1
of Columbia, which is printed in 'full
on page 7, of this paper. He says
some very good things, and they are
well said, and, even if you heard the
address, It will do you good to read
it. The get-together spirit runs
throughi the whole address, and it is
the spirit which we need to cultivate,
and to practice in this community.
As Mr. Hamby says, to develop this
State and to develop your own com
munity requires "concentration of
forces, thorough cooperation, good
wUI! one toward another from every1
quarter of the State, to lay aside petty
jealousies," and getting together for
the up-building of your community
and your State.

Bloody Tangipahoa parish, the home
f the feudists, and the blackest spot

nan bandit who has been robbing
tomes and holding up pedestrains in

teighborhood. She is rounding out a

So she goes up and down the roads

A few weeks ago Mrs. Georgia Wren
ras liberated from the State's prison,
rhere she had served two years on
onviction of arson. She had been giv
n an easy place as cook in the An

orderland of Tangipahoa parish. Im
iediately on liberation she procured
revolver and a Bowie knife and
tarted for her old home and her re

Unrequited love is at the bottom of
,er strange choice of vengeance. The
8-year-old son of Mrs. Wren became
:aptivated by the rustic charms of
dary Wyly, the daughter of a neigh
ior in the cabin settlement. The bu
-olic affair was running smoothly
mough until suspicion of numerom

Prior to this affair she had shot and

had come to believe that there
no new tax dodge under the sun.
