Friday. March 17. 1911.
There will be a heavy docket for the
eessions court. which convenes here
Monday to dispose of. There have been
a number of killings and assaults in
tee county during the past few months
-far more than the average for this
sounty, it seems to us.
It seems to us that the United
States could very well have kept out
of the Mexican muddle. We can see
=o reason for sending an armed force
to the Mexican frontier unless the
Inited States is hunting trouble, and
the trouble about hunting trouble is
that when a fellow looks for it he
-sually finds it.
It is gratifying to note the interest
which is being taken all along the line
in the Columbia-Newberry-Greenville
highway. Newberry's leading part in
Ibis movement is being generally
oommended, and we believe the move
sent is going to result in a good
highway and in building other roads.
'The value of good roads can not be
That was a great campaign in Char
leston, with great results, for a Y.
M. C. A. building. More than one hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars were
raised in seven days. We notice that
Mr. A. C. Jones contributed $100 dol
lars. Mr. Jones had a movement un
der way in Newberry to raise an
amount to prepare the old couri
house for a Y. M. C. A. building, but
cold water was thrown upon it. and
our recollection Is that a few sprays
of this water came from some of th~ose
who are now lamenting the fact thai
the old building is going to ruin. 'ThiE
lamentation, however, was prior tc
the 'use of this historic structure foi
the purposes of r. moving picture
show with a mechanical piaDo whosE
sweet strains were calculated to pui
the cotton buyers in better humor
Maybe this moving picture sho'w
with its tin music met th~e require
Every now and again we hear the
remark by some progressive merchan
of Newberry that he will not join th<
chamber of comerce because it does
not do things. Others will ob.1ect t<
it because there are members who en
joy the recreation of the game of poe
or billards. It is impossible to ge
any organization composed of .me:
who have ideas who will all agree a
the same time on any proposition. Fo
instance, we hear remarks that th
propositian to build a good dirt roa
through Newberry county froi
Greenville to Columbia is a movemaen
in the interest of automobiles, an
there are those who are objecting t
this road, but who are willing, so the
say, to co-operate in any movemen
to work all the roads leading into th
city of Newberry.
The main idea underlying the pros
osition to build the road from Green
ville to Columbia is to encourage th
people who live along the road to g(
out at the same time and do the wor
mainly themselves with their team
- and the labor on their plantation
It was thought that by getting the cc
operation of other counties to do th
same thing at the same time that tb
work could be accomplished.
It would be altogether practicabl
and feasible for the people livin
along other roads of Newberry cour
ty to do the same thing at the sam
time, and we hope they will, but in th
event they do not, we hope to g<
them to do so at some future time.
What we started out to say is the
the chamber of comnmerce, or ani
other organization, can not do thing
unless the people unite and co-opera1
and help to do them, and this shoul
be done even if at times things don
do not meet the approval of every';od
connected with the organization.
The annual meeting will be hel
Tues~ right. and we hope that it wi
bership may agree upon a set of o!
ficers with whom every member will
co-operate. The officers can not do
things by themselves, but with the
co-operation of the merchants and
business men of this community great
things could be done.
Just now while the streets and
roads are cut up and rough from
usage following the rains, would be
a splendid time to try the split log
drag. It has a wonderfully smooth
ing and packing effect. Has been tried
around Laurens and is said to more
than pay for the labor and trouble in
improving the highway. Let the emp
ty wagons coming to town try the
drag and see how it works. Then
when loaded for home. take it on as
ballast, or leave it in town for an
other trip. This will do away with
bad sinks or ruts.-Clinton Gazette.
That's a mighty timely suggestion.
when the wagons are being brought
to town at this time to haul fertilizers.
If the farmers would only get togeth
er and drag the roads an. not wait
for their neighbors to do it, much
good could be done. But as lonr as
one man waits on another to do th
work, nothing will ve accomplished.
Wouldn't it be' fine if every farmer
in the county would use the split-log
drag in front of his home for just a
few hundred feet to see how it works.
That would be great, for if it was
started we are quite sure it would be
followed up. Suppose some good farm
er take the lead and drag the roads
in front of his house and make his
neighbors so ashamed of himself that
he will undertake the same thing.
Somebody try it!-Laurens Advertis
This is a good suggestion and we
want to pass it on to the farmers of
this county. It is just what we have
been .trying to work up to for some
time, and it contains the idea which
we had in mind in' endeavoring to
build a highway between Columbia
and Greenville. A little bit of self
help by every farmer along the road
would not only give him good roads
but would give good roads to every
body else and would cost him a very
little of labor or of moneY.
Atlanta, Ga., March 14.--Atlanta is
very little further from Newberry
than Charleston. If Capt. W. G. Childs
and' the Seaboard would put that
sleeper on between Columbia and At
lanta it would be no further, for in
this day we measure distance by the
time it takes rather than by leagues
and miles. Now you leave Newberry
at 9 o'clock at night, and arrive in
Charleston at 8 o'clock next morni.ng,
spend the day and be back home the
Snext morning at 9 o'clock. If the
-sleeper between Columbia and Atlan
ta were put on you could leave New
Sberry at 6.44 in the evening, reac1i At
t lanta at 7 o'clock next morning, spenc
t the day, and be back in Newberry a
r 9.30 the next morning. So you see th
~ time would be the same.
Of course you can do this now, bu
you have to go to Clinton and wai
for the Seaboard until about 2 o'clocl
n the morning, and either go to be(
r sit up, but in either event you hav1
to change cars. With the sleeper, a1
tsuggested, you would take it at New
berry and go to bed and wake up i
Atlanta, just as' you can do now go

y T he Elks of Atlanta have a nic

swinming pools, cafe, gymnasiun: v

lodge has about 800 members. That
makes the home cost the members o
about $100 each on an average. I d
was just thinking that the Newberry J
lodge of 100 members could erect a i:
very modern home with all the con- Ir
veniences suitable for Newberry at c
the same cost per member. Why no:
do it? It would be easy with the co- N
operation of the entire membership. a

I came here on a brief business trip, ]
but whenever I can I always try tc l
see some of the Newberry colony,.
many of whom are iLere. My friend,
Epps Brown. is away, in Florida, this
week for a brief rest spelL I saw Miss !
Gussie Kibler at the Piedmont, where v
she is kept busy using the typewriter.
I calledi up on the phone Will Sea
brook, and he gave me a pressing in
vitation to come out and see him, but
I am afraid I will not be able to do so.
There are a great many Newberry
people here, but I have not been able
to see them.
I have been around over this coun

Newberry people or certainly people

South Carolina furnished a large con-1
tingent for Georgia and all the West

Almost everywhere you go you will
find a Newberry negro and he is al
ways glad to see some one from home.

heard some one canl my name and
when I looked around I saw it was-a

Atlanta is a busy city. Automo
biles, motor-cycles, street cars, peo
ple going hither aae thither, the
streets at all times filled, new sky
scrapers going up, and all the rooms
engaged before the building is com
pleted, gives evidence of something.
The wonder is some cge is not killed'
every day, the way they speed up
the autos, driven by boys, men, wo
me, and negroes. Bit. I suppose,
providence takes care of them, for
sueythey do not seem to take care
of themselves, or to have much re
1gard for the way in which they drive.
There are many very handsome cars
to be seen on the streets here.
Aong the former Newberry men
who I always try to see when I come
to Alanta is Albert J. Haltiwanger,
Swho many years ago was a merchant
at Chappells. He is now an expert

Chattanooga, Tenn., March 15.-I
-eached Chattanooga some time last
iight. As further confirmation of
what I wrote from Atl1nta as to New
berry negroes, when I walked into the
lining room at the Hotel Patten this
oorning for breakfast, the first per
on that greeted me was Enoch Jones.
EIe is No. 20 waiter at this hotel. It
is an elegant place. r vvill nct remain
.ere but a few hours, I hope. While
waiting for business to open 'I
thought I would write a short note.
Chattanooga has probably more di
versification of industry than any city
f its size in America. There are also
a great number of very handsome of
ace buildings, and really the bus!
ness portion of the city seems larger
than Atlanta, though the populatio
is not more than one-third of Atlanta. I
The manufacturers oZ the city an
its suburbs have bought a building
which is known as the Manufacturers'
association building, and this build
ing of four stories is crowded with an
exhibit of the articles3 manufac';ired
in and around Chattanooga. It is very
interesting to go through it, and this
diversification of industries makes the
city one of the best business points
probably in the South.
Speaking of South C.arolinians and
Newberry people, I met ir.one of the
handsomest and best banks a young
Columbian, Mr. Clar%, son of Mr. W.
A. Clark, of ColumbIa. In the same
building, in the e,mploy of the Volun
teer State Life Insurance company, is
a young Mr. Boggs from Pickens
Returning from Chattanooga, I
came via C. N. and St. L., in what
they call their "Dixie iFlyer.'' I still
had experiences with Newberrians and
South Carolinians. The porter on the
Pullman, when he observed "Newber
ry, S. C.," on my grip remarked that
that looked nice to him, and I found
that he was from Honea Path. While
taking lunch at the Kimball cafe, the
porter, who waited at the table, said
that he was a Greeniville negro, and
when I came over to the central sta
tion to get the Southern for home,, a
negro waiter in the cafe came up and
introduced himself to me as Will Cle
land. He said he is prospering and
is very much interested in his New
berry friends. I found in the station
also, Mrs. S. W. Calmes, formerly of
Prosperity, now in business at Amer
icus, Ga. She says they have ,quite
a quantity of Newberrians in and
around Americus. and more of them
are buying land. E. H. A.
