YOUNG JOHN POPE.
The passing of Judge Pope removes
another link which bound the pres
ent to the days when chivalry was in
Rower and to a civilization such as
the world never saw before and we
fear will never witness again. He
served his day and generation well
and faithfully and has been gathered
to his fathers full of years and h'on
It has been given to no other county
in South Carolina to have her sons
fill the distinguished position of chief
justice of the supreme court of the
State for so many years. For a gen
eration that honor fell to the distin
guished John Belton O'Neall, a son
of Newberry, and for seven years the
position was filled with marked abil
ity by Judge Pope. The present chief
ustice is a native of Newberry.
As private citizen, as counsellor at
law, as soldier in defense of his coun
try, as district judge, as legislator, as
justice of the supreme court, Judge
Pope was ever faithful to duty and
discharged the duties of these va
rious positions wtth marked ability
and with credit to himself and honor
to his State.
As husband and -ather he was ever
gentle and kind anlt considerate. In
his social relations he was ever the
same oc irteous ano affable gentldman
-a Chesterfield by nature.
He took an active interest in every
thing that was for the uplift of his
community. He took a pardonable
pride in Newberry college, and at the
opening of each session always had a
agood and cheerful.Word for the stu
Judge Pope was trave, and chival
rous always, and knew neither moral
nor physical fear, a;nd yet we believe
it is true that malice was as far re
moved from him as it is possible to
eliminate it from frail human nature.
Of him it might be truthfully said
the bravest are the tenderest.
The State board of health has de
signated April 10 as ,"Cleaning Up,
Day" and gives a number or goo'
reasons why the day shQuld be ob
served. We hope the people 'of New
berry will Qbserve the day, but 'it is
not necessary to wait for April 10 to
cleani up. Every day should be so ob
served, but those who do not, might
take the suggestion of the board and
devote one. day to this laudable work.
We notice that Gov. Blease has said
that he will not approve the resolu
tion adopted by the regislature to i,p
point a committee to investigate the
winding-up dispensary commission, so
we 'may expect Col. Tom Felder tc
begin wr'iting his. history of the dis
pensary. We hope he will deal in
facts and not give vent 'to his flow'
of invective and vituperation. There
is no good in further muddying the
If the committee appointed by the
chamber of commerce to raise money
for the employment of a paid secre
tary will get busy it should 'be easy|
to secure the necessary amount to,
make the experiment. Then if a good
live man is employed Newberry should
begin to go forward. It might attract
more people to Newberry and result
in enhancing values, but that woulc
scarcely be detrimental.
Nobody who knows Judge Watts as
a man or a jurist will consider for a
moment as serious tDle intimation that I
he continued the Boozer case because
of fear of any one. He 'has never
been known to shirk his duty. One who
writes anonymnouey such charges
gives r:cre evidence of fear.
That is a very sensible letter cof
Mr. .T. R. Gilliam to Solicitor Cooper
in the matter of an extra term of theri
court for the trial of the Sam Booze:
case. There is no demand or neces

A FRIGHTFUL THING.
As the girl, who was only three
years of age, was breathing her last,
Mr. Goelet lifted her into his auto
mobile and rushed her to her parents
home where she died. After hearing
,the testimony of eye witnesses the cor
onel exonerated Mr. Goelet.-Press
dispatch in Monday's papers detailing
the running down of a little girl in
Middleton, N. Y., by the automobile of
Robert Goelet, a millionaire.
He was exonerated by the coroner,
but the coroner's exoneration and th'
tenderness of Mr. Goelet in lifting the
quivering form into his automobile
could not and can not lessen the an
guish of the hearts of the parents in
the sudden and awful death of their
TRUE AS GOSPEL.
Miss Georgia Hamilton, of the Or
ville, Ohio, Crescent, addressed the
recent meeting of the Ohio press as
sociation. Among many other good
thoughts were the following:
"The columns of his paper are the
means of making a living, and it can
not be expected that he has the ready
cash to donate to different enterprises
and keep himself in good standing
with his fellow men if in return for
his labor receives no recompense. To
many it seems unreasonanle that the
editor should charge for this little
notice and that, for the columns of
the paper are public property. 'God
loves the cheerful giver,' and the edi
tor is made to believe he must con
tribute to the welfare of his town by
giving this firm and that a 'little puff'
to boost their business.
"The common impression is, -t give
you a little something to fill up.' Yes;
we must fill up on something, and the
editor and his family enjoy a good
square meal as well as the average
citizen of the town. Th,e publisher is
handed a notice which to the eyes of
the contributor is a small matter, but
if space is valued at all it is worth
something, especially i-f it benefits the
advertiser in his business. This same
person would not think, no doubt, of
entering a grocery store and asking
the proprietor for a handout, the but
cher to donate 'him a little meat or
the merchant to give him several
yards of cloth. Yet the newspaper
man is besieged every day with the!
liberal offer of a notice to fill up."
The State newspaper should not
ask such searching questions. New
berry does not want "a still chamber
of commerce." The city that does
things nmust be active and wide awake.
We have just now a few vacant resi
ences in Newberry tha,t might be se
:ured by people who would like to
:ast their lot inr a live town.

Joel Tillmarn Crisp was born near
Laurens court house January 8, 1819.
He lived in South Carolina all of his
life. He was married to Susan Knight
October 8, 1839. She died in 1840. He
was married to Cynthia Cole Febru
ary 23, 1841, and to this union ten
children were born, three of who'm are
Idead and seven still 'surviving, ~as
follows: Mrs. T. Y. Henderson, Foun
tain Inn; D. J. Crisp, Tennessee; J.
H. Crisp, Texas; Mrs. C. J. Lancas
ter, Mississippi; Mrs. M. E. Hitt,
Newberry; Mrs. R.' C. Littlefield, In
man; L. C. Crisp, Simpsonville.. Cyn
thia Crisp died May 1, 1896.
Joel Tillman Crisp died March 27,
1911. Ho leaves seeen surv.iring chil
dren, 115 grandchildren, and great
grandchildren and two great great
grandchildren. He lived to see his
fifth generation. He was a brave Con
federate soldier, one of the first vol
unteers in the army; went from Laur,
ens county, Company G, Third South
Carolina regiment, Capt. Todd, serv
ing the first twelve months, when be
ing over 35 years old he came home,
but returned to service and served
until the end in the Pioneer corps.
He was promotedl at the second bat-'
tIe of Manassas to wagon ma~ster.
He was also a member of the James
D. Nance camp at Newb3erry.
Mr. Crisp made his home with his
daughter, Mrs. M. E. Hitt, during the
last 21 years of his life, and died
there. He was ill only, a short while,
and was perfectly conscious until
about a half hour before his dieatn.
The children wish to extend their
sincerest thanks to Dr.,W. E. Pelham,
Jr., who was so tru~ and faithful dur
ing the illness and death of their
fatbe-:, and it is also comforting
know ithat the Daughters of the Con
federacy did not forget him.
It was my privilege to visit Mr.
Crisp several times during tne few
months residence in Newbelry, ana
he alway.s appreciated my visits. As
the word of God was being read he
listened atten,tively and entered hear
tily into the prayer. On account of ill
health he had not been privileged to
attend the worship of God's house,
but wished that he might be able soon,
but he will never get to the earthly
temple, yet he worships in a far more
glorious temple, one r.ot hand made
etenal in heaven.
The only thing he dreaded at the
last was the pain of- death. Said he
had no fears of beyond. As passages
from God's Word were being read he
would say, I have read that often, and
they have confided me.
"Servant of God well done,
Rest from thy loved employ;
The battle fought, the victory won,
Enter thy Master-s joy.
The pains of death are past,'
Labor and sorrow cease,
And life's long warfare closed at last,
His soul is found in peace.
Soldier of Christ, well done,
Praise be thy new employ;
And while eternal ages run,
Rest in thy Savior's joy.

~riends and neighbors, and also to Dr.
Pelhamn and Rev. Geo. A. Wright for

less and death of Mrs. Bitt's father,
ind also during Mrs. Bitt's illness.
Vlay God's richest 'blessings rest upon;
each of these.

ARE MICROBES IN YOUR SCALP?
e It Has Been Proved That Microbes
t Cause Baldness.
Prof. Unna, of Hamburg, Germany,
and Dr. Sabourand, the leading
French dermatologist, discovered that
a microbe causes baldness. Their
theory has time and again been am
ply verified through research experi
ments carried on under the observa
tion of eminent scientists. This mic
robe lodges in the Sebum, which is
y tw natural 'air oil, and when permit
1 ted to flourish it destroys 'the hair
- follicles and in time the pores en
r tirely close, and the scalp gradually
r takes on . a shiny appearance. When

grnwth of hair being revived.
