MEN WHO DO THINGS.
Honors do not always fall where
they rest most gracefully, but it seems
peculiarly fitting that the president
of the First Corn exposition and the
man who has striven so faithfully, en
ergetically, progressively, and intelli
gently to make the exposition a suc
sess from the beginning and who has
succeeded so well should prove, in
competition open to the three States,
that ha not only knows the value of
growing good corn, but does grow the
prize winning quality. The State con
gratulates President A. D. Hudson, of
Newberry, on the fine collection of
beautiful silver cups that are acquirad
by him as trophies. To the victor in
the noble industrial contests should
go the prizes.
The work of Mr. Hudson has been
the work of a patriotic South Caro
linia. His office as presidant of the
association is one that will be ac
corded honor in this section becausE
of what he has done in the unselfisb
endeavor to build up South Ca,rolina.
Entering an un;L-ied field, giving his
time and defraying I 4- expenses,
he bas won success, and helped lay
the foundation for the addition of
Xany millons to the wealth' of his
State, -and for benefiting those who
most need the helping band.
And there Is another Individual who
muut be remembered when the suc
cess of the corn exposition and the
tremiendous awakening of the corn
growing spirit in this State is men
tioned. A. G. Smith, the scientific as
sistant of the Bureau of Farm lian
2gement, iocated In Columbia, has
been President Hudson's right hand.
Mr. Smith is not a native of tisi State;
he comes from the "corn country"
bf thre mid-west, but ie iea fiiMe faith
in South Cardiin&% soil gud Olini&te
for ara production than biost of ou?r
own farmers. 111s enthusiasm and
tireless work and direction have given
triemendous aid to the movement "all
along the line"-as Commissioner
Watson would say.--Columnbia State.
The above is well said. You know
the slogan for Newberry city and
county is "The City and County That
Doeis 'Tingsf" and, of counse, the
men who compose the city and county
are necessarily men who do things.
There is much hope 'in the increased
interst on the part of our farmers
throughout South Carolina in diversi
fied farming-hope for a better and
brighter and more prosperous agi
cultural community, 'without whiich. we
can not have a prosperous State.
The Herald and Ne'ws has for years
beien advocating tisi policy and hs
talked so much about growing corn
and other things that are needed on
the farm that it sometimes felt that
it was boring ts readers, and, it is,
therefore, gratifying to use to see this
increased interest along these lines.
We are also delighted to know that
Mr. Hudson's farm is successful, be
cause it means much for tbis county
to have right in the midst of our far
mers a successfu:1 farm conducted
along the lines of diversified farming,
and we congratulate President Hud
son, and all those who have co-operat
ed with him, on the success of this
first corn exhibition in this section ol
It is true that South Carolina leads
- te world's record in the graatest
numnber of bushels of corn grown o13
one acre, and yet, we believe, leads
the world's record also on the smualiast
average number of bushels grown petr
acre, and we believe this awakening
will cange this lowest record of the
average number of bushels per acre.
We know that it has done a great deal
for better conditions in this county.
We are glad to note in the Observer
a local paragraph favoring the pas
ing of some of the9rmain streets-.t
'will be remembered that so:ne Lime
during this year bitulithie con. n
made a very favorable proposition for
payir'g the n)uW' eqpqre A : nuD'
be of the leading streats and the
ments coul have been carried
through several years and the amount
would not have been missed. It was
a great mistake in our opinion that
this proposition was not accepted. Of
course some technical question was (
raised, but if the citizens generally I
had let city council know that they -
favored the proposition, it could have 3
been agreed to and the paving put I
down and the notes paid without any I
one feeling the burden.
We hope that the new city council
will take up the matter and have some
permanent work of this kind done
during the coming year. The saving i
in annual repairs, not to speak of the I
convenience, would have been more
than the interest on the amount in
Prominent among the lovely wed- C
dings of the iseason was that of Miss t
Ellen Smith, of Kinards, to Mr. Wim. J.
Swittenberg, of Newberry. The cera- I
mony was certainly a scene of beauty
and loveliness. The first floor of the
attractive country home of the bride's
parents was decorated most elabor
ately with quantities of chrysanthe
mums, smilax, bamboo and ferns. The
room in which the ceremony took
place was all white and green, and
the bride and groom stood under an]
exquisite wedding bell made of white
chrysanthemums. Miss Smith wore
an exquisite wedding gown of white
messaline and carried a shower bou
quet of white roses and delicate ferns.
She was attended by har sisters, Mrs.
J. E. Senn and Mrs. H. B. Workman,):
as dames of honor, and the maid of
honor, Miss Helen Smith. During the
evening the beautiful old song, "At
Nighfalil," was sung most charmingly
by Miss Pet Merchant, and Miss Lucy
Hi1 played Mendelssohn's wed<ing
march just as the wedding party were
ent6ring the parlor.
In contrast to the white of the par- t
k1or the daiing room was in yellow 1
and green and a most elaborate j
course supper was served. 't
Mr. Swittenberg, the groom, is one
of the most popular Newberry men, t
and is considered one of .thie best I
hardware clerks in ithe State, and Miss I
