OUR "INAUGURAL" EXTRA.
The inauguration of a new governor
and -what he has to say is a matter of
geat interest to all the people. #In ad
dition to this, the new governor, Mr.
Blease, is the first governor Newber
ry has ever f-urnished.
It was but natural that The Herald
and News, the newspaper that gives
the news while it is news, should issue
an extra edlition only a. minute or two
after the inauguration was concluded,
giving a full account of the inaugura
tion, and the full text of Mr. Dlease's

to give the news while it is nerws.
- EXAI E YOUR LABEL.
For the past month The Herald and
News has not marked off subscriptions

however, not to continue this plan, and
we take this method of giving notice
that all subscriptions that have expir

' LIN FIN E SPIRIT.
The Columbia Daily Record opposed
Governor Blease in his cam7paiga-op
poseld him vigorously but fairly. In
fine spirit is this clean-cut editorial
from the Record on the afternoon of
Govennor Blease's inauguration.
INSERT "The Record Says',:
"A change in admi'ntstration is al
ways en occasion, and properly so, for
comment and conjecture. The coming
of new men to new responsilbilities
means the inauguration, ordinarily, of
new policies and new methods, and a
readjustment of governmental affairs.
"The inauguration of Governor
Blease is no exception to this rule.
While the new governor has for a
score, of years been active in South
Carolina polities, he represents, it may
be said, a different school of political
thought from that which has been rep
resented for the last eight, even the
last 12, years in the governor's office.
He has attained his high ambrition by
consistent devotion to lines of political
procedure that have been all his own.
This is equivalent to stating that the
new governor is possessed of original
ity. He is also not lacking in the
strength of persona-lity, a quality so
essential to success in the leadership
of men-and politics is merely the
leadership of men.
"Governor Blease, then, is equipped
for the position. He has the ability.
the personality, the experience, and
now he has the opportunity. It is a
"South Carolina was never more
prosperous. Her people were never
more united on essentials, more ready
to follow wise counsel and to accept
constructive measures for the ad
~+ r~f th~ comm~nw~vt1th and
the uplifting o, its citizenship. There
has never been a time when leader
ship could count for more th,an now,
just as there has never been a time
when division among the people and
bitterness could -be more untimely or
harmful. The chance that lies before
the young man who today becomes
governor is sufficient to inspire the
very highest ideals of public service
"Governor Blease enters upon his
administration in the knowledge, shar
ed by all of us, that in his campaigni
for governor he overcome the opposi
tion of an element not only colisider
able as to numbers, but important by
reason of its intelligence and influ
ence. Putting asid-as the governor
can well afford to do-the opposition
which was based upon personal pre
judice. the governor may prcperly de
sire to disprove by his administration
of the office the arguments that were
advanced, publicly and privately,
against is election.
"On the other hand, tha-. element
which opposed the election of Mr.
Blease, principally on account of fea
tures of his past political career which
they could not approve, should in all
fairness-and we trust they will-!
judge his administration not by that
they may dislike or condemn in his
previous record, but solely by the rec
ord which he begins today to make.
"The slate is wiped cl-ean, Governor
Blease. Your friends-and you have
many friends, which is greatly to your
credit-and your former enemies are
from the hour when you took the oath
of office as governor of South Carolina
no more your friends and your ene
mies, but South Carolinians, and may
you be the go-Vernor of them all, and
of the State all of us love."
Treatment of Telephone GirL
New York Sun.
Two tickets to an evening musicale
were sealed in an enyelope addressed
to "the day telephone operator who
attends to Riverside 659-XY."
"I dont know her name," said the
woman who was sending the invita
tiomis, "for the telephone company
works on a system of anonymity, but
she will get the tickets just th'e same.
They are a reward for patience. I
used the telephone for half an hour
yesterday issuing invitations for this
affair. I told h-er in the beginning
what I was about to do and she was
courtesy itself in helping me to se
cure numbers. I find it always pays
to take central into your confidence
before bombarding her with a direc
tory full of calls. Explain what you
wish to do and she will be attentive.
I issue invitations- to many aln affair1
over the telephone and always, if it
is something that central can possi
bly at-tend, send her tickets as a mark
of appreciation." __
Be No New Paper.
Columbia, S. C., Jan. 11.-It is hard
ly probable that the new morning
paper will come out.
In regard to reports in circulation
in Columbia that it is indeffnite as to
when the first issue of the Morning
News, the proposed new daily, would
appear, Mr. George R. Keoster, one of
the promoters of said paper, stated
"As some of those whose support is
necessary to establish the new paper
objected to working with mie for poli
tical -reasons, which I do not care to
discuss at present, I have agreed to
withdraw from any cornwiction with1
any effort to estaiblish a new morning
paper in Columbia and I understand
that this has caused deferring thte
movement until new plans can be
Radium Comes Cheaper.
Sir William R.amsay in a recent
London lecture stated that radium now
costs $2,100,000 an ounce, the drop in
price from $3,000,000 being due to
the work in the pitchblende mines of
Cornwall, which is showing such sat
isfactory results that a continuous
supply of radium is absolutely assur
In reference to the work at the
mines Sir William announces that up
to the preserL time 550 milligrams of
pure radium have been produced at
the Trenwith rmine's, near St. Ives.
The process of the extraction of ra
dium from the pitchblende employed
by Sir William is so rapid that the
amount o+ rs dium secured by this
method in two months would take a

A year ago there was about a quar

A radium bank has exis-ted ror some

tablhed in London, and similar in
situtions are being fomnded in other
great cities. These banks lend the
