Membership week for the chamber
*f commerce. This means a week set
apart for work for Newberry.
The road drag could be used to
great advantage on almost all the road
bed from here to Little Mountain.
"Newberry, the city that does
Now, let's keep up our reputation
and double the active membership of
the chamber -of commerce.
The chamber of commerce wants
more members throughout the county.
This commercial body is working for
the whole county.
Now, all together for Newberry,
town and county.
The one mile of government road
meeds to be dragged and to have some
little holes filled before winter rains
begin. One day's work will save the
road whereas delay and neglect will
cause much more work and besides
cause great damage to the road bed.
Why not do the work now?
That was a powerful sermon preach
ed by Dr. A. J. Bowers in the Luther
an Church of the Redeemer on Sunday
morning. "In my Father's house are
many mansions," was the theme which
he developed in an eloquent manner.
One of the main points which he
stressed is peculiarly appropriate in
this rapid age-that great-heartedness
is better than great-mindedness. His
sermon throughout was a masterly
presentation of a great subject, couch
ed In beautiful language.
The corn exposition now in progress
in Columbia Is an encouraging sign of
the times in the Southern States. The
South has too long devoted too much
attention to cotton, to the detriment
of 'other crops for which the South is
peculiarly adapted, and to the detri
ment of diversified farming.
Corn growing has received a great
deal of attention in this State recent
ly, and South Carolina continues to
hold the world records. Newberry
county, too, has been devoting con
siderably more attention to-the raising
of corn, and 106 bushels on an acre,
the record made by Dr. W. C. Brown,
is highly gratifying.
ALL TOGETHER FOR NEWBEERY.
The Newberry chambar of com
merce, beginning this morning, will
make a systematic canvass to double
Its membership, and this week is to
be known as membership week. It is
hoped to have 300 members enrolled
by the date of the banquet which is to
be given on December 20, and which
will be attended by President W. W.
Finley, of the Southern railway, a man

That is the purpose of the organiza

Under the leadership of President
I. H. Hunt and the other officers and
the various committees, a great deal
of work has been done for Newberry.
It is desired to enilarge the field of use
fulne,ss, and that can only be done
by increasing the interest of the peo
ple of Newberry.
When you are working in and for
the chamber of commerce you are
working for yourself.
Let's all get together and support
the chamber of commerce for New
berry. Now is the time, and a great
Sopportunity is presented for a united!

THE IDLER *

Well, the election is over and may
be we can now have a surcease from
sorrow, and get down to business.
But politics is a curious thing, now
isn't it? I was just thinking of the
vote cast in the two primaries just
eld in Newberry. Look at it for
ourself and then ask yourgelf if
there are not some queer things in
politics. I am not going to enter poli
I want to get busy on The Idler's
park. Now is the time for my rich
riends to get busy. Mr. Burton sends
me word that the land can be secured
at a reasonable price, but if some
thing is not done NOW it will be for
ever too late. Those are awful words.
'00 LATE. Had you ever thought of
their meaning? Stop and think. It
will do you good. I am going to ask
the editor of The Herald and News to
submit the business proposition to the
business men of Newberry this week,
and I want to see hearty and enthusi
astic cooperation. It means much for
Newberry. It will not do to let this
Dpportunity pass. Such a one will
never present itself again. Be ready
when. the propoSition is presented to
give it your commendation and sub
The chamber ot commerce Is get
ting a move on her these days. I am
delighted to see it. Organized and
united effoit Is what this dld town
needs. Put up your hammer and de
termine that no backward step shall
be taken. Since the old court house
building is to remain I would like to
suggest to the new city administra
tion to arrange with the merchants to
secure two or three rooms here to be
used as rest rooms and that a keeper
be placed in charge so as to make
them comfortable and safe for the la
dies who come to town from the
,ountry. It is conventient. Every busi
aess man ought to know that it is to
s interest directly to provide all the
:onveniences possibly for the ladies
who come to town from the country and
who have to bring their children. This
s an ideal place for this purpose. And
then I understand the new city coun
il will continue the good work start
d by the present council In clearing
:he upper square of a wagon yard by
utting a coping around this ~lttle
;quare and cooperating with the civic
wsociation In making a ~pretty little
park out of it. I am told that the
ransformation of the public square at
Ieenwood is something wonddrful
Lnd those who opposed it would fight
ou now if you were to suggest that
:hey were not always in ~favor of it.
rhe same would be true here if we
ould just get the thing done, and I
m glad to know that the new city
~ouncil will do the work.
I was reading the other day some
;hing of the work of Mrs. Maybrick in
er efforts at prison reform. You
now she served some fifteen years in
prison in England on the charge of
nurdering 'her husband. She knows
what she is talking about and is de
oting her life to improving conditions
in the prisons of the country. She
elates the following case which came
s one of her many experiences:
An unusual case came to her one
ay when she asked a millionaire
nanufacturer, who emdloyed 3,000
en under him, if he would give a
released prisoner something to do. He
datly refused, and stated to Mrs. May
rick that he had no sympathy for
ny crimnal, as he believed they got
lust what they deserved.
"A short time afterwards," said Mrs.
Maybrck, "I met him coming out of a
ederal prison, and with tears In his
yeys he told me he had gone to see his

I simply refer to this to point a

as reall and genuine human sympathy.

that comes from the depths of the

It seems to me that every girl in
Newberry county who can bang-I
mean bang on the piano-ought to be
able to get one free. I notice a mer
chants association of some kind is
going to give away fiftteen thousand
dolars worth. One has already been
given away. Summer & Hipp are giv
ing one away and now comes The
Herald and News with one for some
pretty little girl. Well, I am glad the
opportunity is given so many of our
young girls to get a piano.
Pointers to the Women on What tol
Wear and How to Wear It.
New suggestions in clothes are con
tinually cropping out, and theories of
how best to wear the new clothes, are
being met with the newer theories as
to what Paris will do at the first of
next year. It is not possible to under
stand just why those who project these
last theories believe in them. If they
expect a revolution of things, there
was revolution enough the first of this
season, about two months ago, to sat
isfy the most tumultuous soul.
Paris executed an about-faced in
clothes last summer while our backs
were turned. Americans will not for
give their buyers soon, for the affair
of the plaited swkrit andetaoishrdl
of the plaited skirt and long coat. The
American woman considers the vast
amount of money she spends on
clothes each year, entitles her to fora
knowledge on this ubject. On account
of American buyers fault, the Ameri
can woman has been compelled to
have her late spring suit cut up and
made over or has had to discard it
entirely, since September.
Some argue that Paris wiK be tired
of the tight skirt and short jacket by
the first of the year and will go into
the plaited skirt and Eton jacket then.
It will be much wiser for us to go
ahead and have our winter clothesi
made in the prevailng styles. If, we
lend ourselves to uncertainty every
time we buy a garment, we wi have
a most unhappy time of it. As the fu
ture is so indefinite why not drift with
the present and be as fashionable as
Every one, must know by this time,
that the materials for street borrow
softness from those of the evening.
Nothing is hard, stiff or unyielding. It
is a season of drapery and suppleness.
While this is true of street clothes, it
is more so of evening gowns. The lat
ter are made of the most filmy and
gauzy fabrics that can be woven.
Velvet is the fashion for ball gowns,
but not tha velvet of other days. It
has been reduced to a mere wisp of
shimmer and sheen. It is a rival to
chiffon and is often mingled with it.
Satin plays an important part in all
the gowns for winter, no matter for
what purpose they are intended. It is
used for the house and for the new
Pierrot models that are loose and sup
ple, with a row of satin buttons from
the chin to the ankle.
Fur is as popular as satin and trims
everything from a negligee to a ball
gown. It is even put on the short sat
in petticoat that is now worn under a
narrow outer skirt, slashed up the left
The shape of the hat and the occa

cide its manner of draping. The veils
that are put on perfectly loose and
that flow all around are especially
popular, but there are many inven
tions with women who prefer other
.More black and white veils than
anything else are being used. Hats are
not matched in color with them as
The newest veil just now to attract
the attention of pretty faces, is one -of
flesh-pink color spotted with black. A
coarse mesh bilack veil lined with
white maline is useful for the winter,
when the wind is blowing. It is ex
tremely modish and becoming.
A very practical winter veil is one
made of chiffon cloth, bordered all
round or on three sides with marabou.
These come in alil colors, and the mar
'abou is in contrasting color or matches
the veil, either way is very stylish.
Among the new autohobile veils, is
one ready to put on and fasten in a,
twinkling. It is made of chiffon cloth'
shirred across the front to shape it,
run with an elastic, and finished with
a button and loop at opposite ends of
the shirring. This veil is put on from
the back forward and the button and
'loop fasten the veil around~ the neck
and over the loose portion, so the
wind has no~ chance with it.
The cob-web veil launched about a
year ago is still a distinct favorite.

smart, needs the most careful hand

continues to be the leader for even
ing. Chantilly lace, the old-time black
web, makes up some of the most
handsome dinner gowns. It is always
made over white or some colored silk.
The br-cades, soft and supple as their
weave permits are among the richest
of present materials. But the woman
who has brought out old-time treas
ures in the way of brocades has often
met with great disappointment when
she found that they were so stiff as to
preclude anything like the clinging
lines demanded for the present mode.
A white linen sailor collar embroid
ered in black, is one of the most popu
lar style. It is scalloped at the edge
and has tiny sprigs of the needlework
scattered over the collar.
Black and white shepherd plaid silk
collar and cuff sets for coats are
something new. They have black turn
overs and black buttons to finish them.
They are quite pretty and add a good
deal to the coat.
The newest muffs are enormous.
