Mr. R. H. Greneker, who is in charge

The Citadel lost a $25,000 appro

The senate decided to do away with
special appropriations for educational
institutions. This is a step in the
right direction. They shousld be sup
ported, it is true, but there are too
many schools in the rural districts
that have to be closed before the ses

funds. Something should be done for
them. In this connection we might

Why certainly Senator Tillman does
not consider the holding of the posi

States senator a violation of the. law
The senator has never been able to
see any harm in doing whatever hE

Why should he? Besides, he says

convdntion and he knows that the
constitution doesn't mean what it says
an this subject.
This question is in order: Who are
the best authority, tne men who fram

not? Who is the best entitled to say
what +e constitution means, those
who framed it or those who did not?

We have a faint recollection that in
the not distant past there has been a

We are anxious and willing to print

I am still in a meditative mood,
and I have oeen meditating on some
of the actions of city council. I havell
often wondered why the city council
passed an ordinance and then would
give permits to have it violated. There
is an ordinance, so I have been told,
which is denominated the "fire limits."
Now, I have always been under the
impression that this meant that with
in these "limits," no wooden build
Ings were to be erected. And yet it
seems, that whenever any body desir
ed to build within these limits all he
had to do was to get a permit. NoV
the thing that has been worrying my
meditating apparatus is why have the
ordinance if permits are to be given
ad libitum. It seems to me that
there ought to be some sort of an
ordinance by which some of the old
useless fire traps that now stand I
within these limits cud be torn down
instead of giving "permit" for the
erection of more of the same kind.
I am very much pleased to note from
the proceedings of council that no I
more "permits" are to b:e granted.
That reminds me that the old burn
ed and chaxrred building, or that which
was once a building, still stands in
Friend street near the union station, a
thing of beauty. and a joy forever.
And those beauty spots still rear
their proud heads in lower Main
street. And there are oth'ers nearer
the business centre of the city that.
look to me like they would make good
fuel :or the flames. Why not get to
gether with the owners of these hulls
and take them down.
I was reading and thinking on other
proceedings of city council, as printed
in the last issue of The Herald and
News. One thing I did not exactly
understand. If I am not mistaken, I
have not the paper before me, but
it seems to me the repo:rt said that
one mnember of council had made the
remark that this present council was-.
elected to repeal the ordinance far
bidding wagons and teams to -stand on
the upper public square, or words to
that effect, or that the country people
so understood it. Ge! whiz! Now
isn't that a proposition. I am a coun
trymnan and come in contact with
thema myself and that alderman must
undo'ubt,edly ' be laborin.g under a
grave mistake. "There its no crying
out amongst us countrymen for thef'
repeal of this ordinance, but we would
like to see, as one al-derman is report- I
ed as saying, the hbusiness men of
Newberry get togeth'er and pay us the i
top noth for our cotton and cotton '
seed and then we countryme~n will
come to see you. 1]
Another thing the council and busi
ness men might' consider and that is i
the arrangement of a convenient rest
room for the ladies who come in from
the country. They have no place
where they can go to warm in the
winter, or to refresh th'emselves.
That autoniobile stopping ordina'nce
is also a dead letter. City council
should have it published in the city
papers. A man told me that he heard
a m'an say that the :reason it was not C
-enforced is because it has not been I
published and a city ordinance does t
not have :the force of law until it has
been printed. I am no lawyer and, a
of course, don't know, but if that is E
the case it should be published. The
intersection of Caldwell and Main
streets is a very dangerous place to
run on:e of these machines fifteen or
twenty 'miles an hour and it will be
too late to lock the stable after some
one hais been killed or crippled.
Another thing tihat surp,rises me in e
my meditations is that city council
wan1ts so long to order that light putc
up at the union depot. It will not be* a
long before we will have free street"
lights and it will not cost a great T'
deal to have this light put up. Presi
dent Finley has given permission to I
put it up, the light has been ordered, F
the commissioners will put it up. It .
is squarely up 'to council to carry into
effect its former action. Why wait.
Personally it makes very little dif
ference to me whether any of my sug
gestions are heeded. I know they are
made for the good of the town and
I know that I have no selfish purpose.
It is well to meditate, to muse, to
think, to know you are right and then
to go ahead. That is an old proverb,
but it is a good one and a true one.
It would 'be a good thing for some~
people I know to observe this good
old proverb. They would not have to
reconsid er so often. Then they would
"-obablv save many heart-aches and~
'nany clashes that are not necessary
This has been a delicious climate
Eor the past two months. The far
rers -are busy and now the city people
:>ught to get busy and get. together
ind make this town inviting to the
,ountry people and lorery for the town
people. We have everything to -make
is happy. Happiness is from within.
As a man thinketh so is he. Think
right and you will be right, and then
rou will do right.
I heard a man say the other night
hat he heard a lecturer say that this
vorld would never be worth anything
intil the world regarded the man who
abored and earned an honest living
lust as good as the man who had his
nillions and rode in his automobile.
ell, that ought to be thi case now,
)ut as I meditate I sometimes doubt.
iou know, it is a fearful thing to
loubt and I try very hard to keep
rom doubting. You know that it is
in old and a true saying that the man
,vho rides in the chariots today and
rolls in luxury, may tomorrow be
hoving the wheelbarrow. It is also
rue that the final result of all flesh
o far as this world is concerned is the
ame. The rich and the poor all strike
i common evel. In that day nothing
!ounts but character-what you really
tre and not what you seem. Then
why should any one be "stuck up"
,ven if he has a little more money
:han some one else. Let every one,
ret together. Each has his sphere
md it is his duty to fulfil his mission.
