Newberry: The city that does things.
-Newberry Herald and News. Ches
ter certainly can.-Chester Lantern.
Nobody said it couldn't. But why
How about that Friend street light
for the union station crossings? Now
that the Southern railway has sent a
man here and the Southern has no
objection to the light being placed
near its tracks, why not have the
light? What says city council?
The newspapers are mistaken in
saying that Miss Euphemia McClin
tock is the first woman who ever ad
dressed the legislature. The late Mrs.
Virginia D. Young several years ago
made a ringiing appeal to the legisla
tors on woman's suffrage.
The newspapers which have been
bewailing because the State would be
overrun with blind tigers as a result
of Governor Blease's action in revok
ing the commissions of liquor con
stables would have saved themselves
much anguish of spirit and much space
and ink if they had waited a day or
The Browning bill to turn the entire
feirtiizer tax into the State treasury
subject to appropriation by the legis
lsture is a measure along the right
line, and we hope that it can be pass
ed and that it will not conflict with the
decision of the Umited States supremie
court as to the fertilizer itax. The bill
is published in full in The Herald and
We believie city council would do
well to pass an ordinance making it
a misdemeanor for others than em
ployes to walk on or alongside the
-railroad tracks in the city limits ex
eept at public crossings. There have
thelen a number of fatalities recently,
sand each strongly impresses the need
for such a law. The death of a negro
yesterday afternoon is the latest. It
~happened in the usual way-attracted
by thie noise of a train on another
'track lhe did not hear the engine bear
ing down upon him.
THE SOUTHERN POWER CO.
We b'eieve that the coming of the
Southern Power company to Newberry
'will mean a great deal for the city, and
-we hope that city council may see its
way clear to grant a franchise which
'will 'be acceptable to tis company, at
the same time, of course, protecting
the rights of the city.
The granting 'of a franchise which
will bind for sixty years is, as urged
by the city attorney, a very important
matter, and it is no doubt better that
council should investigate the matter
th.or'oughly, as it decided to do, be
fore taking final action. We trust,
however, that after a full and thor
ough investigation, the committee may
find the situation such that council
and thle company may readily agree
'upon the terms of a franchise.
The entrance of a public service
corporation of this character into
Newber-ry can not but aid the material
growth of the town.
THE NEWBERRY JAIL.
The Herald and News publishes to
day on page three letters from Sher
iff Buford, Supervisor Feagle and Act
ing County Physician Ellesor to the
Newberry delegation calling attention
to the insecurity and the highly unsan
itary condition of the Newbarry jail.
This matter has been reported by
the grand jury on a number of occa
sions, but the supervisor has been
powerless to act without money.
The jail is sorely in need of repairs
'and improvements, and it is very much
to be hoped that .the Newberry dele
gation will take action in the matter
at this session. It is the county's duty
to the unfortunat? criminal class and
to the -unfortunate innocent who may
at any time be charged with crime
that they shall be surrounded during
imprisonment by sanitary and health
ful conditions, and it is the county's
duty to society to have the place of

THE ANNUAL BANQUET
S KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS
SUCCESSFUL AND DELIGHTFUL 0C
CASION ON TUESDAtY NIGHT.
Grand Chancellor, Grand Prelate, G.
K. R. & S., and Rev. Mr. Bristow
The annual banquet of Newberry
lodge, No. 75, Knights of Pythias, giv
en in the dining room of the Crotwell
hotel on Tu.esday night, following the
public installation of the officers of
the lodge in the cast.le hall, was a suc
cess from every point of view and a
most delightful affair.
The installation of the officers was
by Grand Chancellor J. Walter Doar,
of Georgetown, assisted iby the other
visiting officers and members of the
The visitors included, in addition to
Grand Chancellor Doar, Grand Pre
late F. S. Evans, of Greenwood; Grand
Keeper of Records and Seal C. D.
Brown, of Abbeville, and the Rev. L. J.
Bristow, of Abbeville, a member of the
The banquet was served by the
Bachelor Maids. A fine menu had been
prepared, and it was elegantly serv
The menu was as follows:
Grape Fruit Maraschino Cherries
Rost Turkey Cranberries
Rice Gravy Biscuits Ham
Waldorf Salad Saltines
Ambrosia Pound Cake
Salted Peanuts Mints
Following the supper, there were
several appropriate talks.
Col. E. H. Aull, editor of the South
Carolina Pythian and chairman of the
board of publication of the grand
lodge, acted as toast master in place
of Dr. A. J. Bowers, who was detained
at home on account of illness in his
The Grand Chancellor.
Grand Chancellor Doar responded to
the sentiment, Pythians in South Caro
lina-"We are brothers; generous to
each other's fau.lts, ready to acknow
edge each other's virtues, hel-pful to
each other in distress, rejoicing with
each other whien fortune smiles."
Grand Chancellor Doar said that this
was his first visit to .Newberry, and
expressed himself as charmed with
the city and its -people. It was a
double 'pleasure, he said, to be here and
to be served by such fair and charming
women as the Bachelor Maids. After
a few pleasantries, the speaker, tak
ig up his subj:ect, said there were
over 13,000 Pythians in the grand do
main of South Carolina, and over '70,
000 in the supreme domain, banded to
gether for one purpose, one result
the elevation, the happiness and thie
betterment of mankind. He spoke of
the work of the order and the good
which it is doing, and said he hoped
the day would soon come when would
be realized his fondest ~hope-the es
tablishment of a Pythian home for
widows and orphans in this grand do
main. He believed it was highly es
sential to have such a home. He want
ed to see a home erected "whose walls
should be of f.riendship, whose pillars
shall be of charity, covered all over
with benevolence, and the very atmnos
phere within ,impregnated with broth
erly love." He spoke of his gratifica
tion in harvin.g so many mninisters of
the gospel In the organization. He
said that at a meeting at Allendarle the
Rev. Dr. J. W. Wolling had come to
him and told him he wanted to become
a Knight of Pythias, saying that he
realized as never before that by be
longing to the organization he could
rach men whom he otherwise could
Grandi Chancellor Doar closed with
a peroration in which he exhorted ev
er Pythian to adopt as his motto the
living for the good he could do.
The Grand Prelate.
Grand Prelate F. S. Evans. of Green
wood, had for his theme the Practical
Side of Pythianism-"It's deeds must
win the prize."
Grand Prelate Evans said that th'e
object of the organization was to bind
the brothers together not only that
they mnight promote their own inter
ests, but that they might act so as to
show to the outside world that the
principles taught behind closed doors
were intended for the elevation of the
It. was a mistaken idea. he said, that
ti" Knig~hts of Pythias v:as a secret
organiztionl. it was not a secret or
der, he 'said. It was true there were
certain signs by which brother might
recognize brother which were not re
vealed to the outside world, but the
principles of the order were not secret,
and should not to~ kept as such. The
duty of a true Pythian was to live a
-ife tha woulrd teah the principles of
th order to zhoso unfamiliar with
The practical side of Pythianism
was the life if every member-his
deeds and actions-to show those not
membrs what Pythianisin really
means, and what the real intention of
Grand Prelate Evans' address was a
forcible exposition of the practical
duty of Pythians, and it was inter
spersed with appropriate anecodotes
which were well told.
Mr. Harvey Eegrets.
The toast master announced that he
had been requested by Grand Master
of Exchequer Wilson G. Harvey, of
Charleston, to express his regrets at
his inability to be present.
It %vas a matter of regret that Su
preme Representative M. L. Bonham,
of Anderson, and District Deputy
Grand Chancellor A. M. Deal, of Co
lumbia, who were to have -sponded
to toasts, were una:ble to be present.
The Ikev. Mr. Bristow.
The Rev L. J. Bristow, of Abbeville,
a devoted Pythian and member of the
grand lodge, responded to the senti
ment, Benevolence-"And learn the
luxury of doing good." The Rev. Mr.
Bristow's address was -a gem of word
painting and contained a great deal of
thought expressed in beautiful lan
guage. Benevolence, he said, was the
desire to do good, the disposition to do
good, the love of mankind, an earnest
desire to promote every happiness.
Beneficence was the fruit of benevol
ence. Benevolence was of the heart
and beneficence was of the conduct.
Pythianism in instilling benevolence
would 'reach the heart. Benevolence
was always touched by the cry of dis
tress. He very beautifully pictured
the close of day among the Alps, and
told how, after the valleys were cloth
ed in darkness -the mountain peaks
were yet touched by the light of day,
and as the darkness crept up and cov
ered them, Mt. Blanc stood rearing its
head up into the light long after the
other peaks were veiled in the shad
ows. So, he said, benevelonce lifts
proudly its 'head .above all other vir
tues of Pythianism and bathes in the
eternal sunshine of the face of God.
"And, f-riends," he continued, "every
virtue of PythianLism comes from God."
The si calucr brought to the mental
.is ion a l.'dscape which ha1I mEt
his gan~ in the early mlorniag
a he 'vas~ crossing a mountain
ridge, its verdure and its flowers and
its crystal waters and al-l its glories
being transmuted sunshine. "And so
I dare to stand before you," he said,
"and tell you that every virtue of Py
thianism, as every other virtue of hu
man life in any sphere, is but trans- '
muted Godliness, it is 'but the reflec- c
tion of the divine, for if there is any a
one pirinciple that stands above all <
the others in Pythianism it is that we
are the offspring of God."
The speaker referred to a great
novel of Robert Louis Stevenson,
wherein it was related that in a storm
at sea an affrighted passenger came
upon deck and after watching the man
at the wheel for awhile saw that man
smile as the 'eyes of the two met, and I
the passenger had immediately gone
below and told his fellow-passengers
that there was hope, because he h'ad 3
seen the face of the pilot and he smiledj
"We are all sailing over the sea of
life," he said. "Oftimes are we tossed
by its fierce storms. The hand of ~
brother -reached out 'will support us
ilovingly and longingly to the full ex
tent of human 'kind. But there come
times amid the stress and storms of t
life when even. frienship and brother- I
hood will not avail if meriely human. ~
Blessed be that man in such a time ~
of stress and storm if he can look be
yond the clouds and through them, ~
and feel the 'hand from a divi'nely ~
benevolent heart reached out to sus- E

in such time of storm and stress can C

Newberry coll.ege, responded to the (
sentiment Charity--"He hath a teara

Dr. Harms began by claiming for
charity that it was the queen of all the~ I
graces. He said that on this occasion
he was remninded of' the Knights of*
King Arthur-of Sir Gallahad, "whose: t
strength was as the strength of ten 1:

others, who rode abroad redressing I

times, said Dr. 'Harms, a new ki'nd 'of t
knighthood was dem'anded. Modern c
knighthood is the knighthood "that
wears the smile and benediction of our t

and woes of the world to relieve them,. r
