We have had bad weather ever
since Governor Blease was inaugu
You should come down to New
berry. We have had the most glor
ious weather all this year ever ex
perienced by the oldest inhabitants.
It is now stated from Columbia that
there is no demand or desire for an
investigation of dispensary matters.
We suppose that means that Col.
Felder has reconsidered his proposi
tion or threat to write a book.
When it comes to the adoption of
school books the State board of edu
cation should have due regard for
the interests of the child and also for
the pockets of the parents and as few
changes as possible should be made.
The State board of education un
animously endorse the position of Gov.
Blease in his refusal to sign the act
of the legislature providing for the
distribution of the dispensary fund
among the schools. These men are
mot politicians and this is high en
There is no ordinance against keep
ing up the good work of cleaning up
beyond the days officially proclaimed
for that duty.-Spartanburg Herald.
Now, the 10th was the day, and that
'was yesterday, but there has been no
official or other proclamation from
the officials of this city, or any banI
placed upon the individual. And be
sides, there is room for something to
be done right here' in Newberry.

* THE IDLER. *
I was meditating again the other
day. I love to meditate with myself.
I knew an old man once who never
talked very much except when he was
alone. He would take long walks all'
by himself and if ypu happened to be
near the roadside where he could not
see you, you could hear him talking
mnost: earnestly and incessantly. I1
was a mere boy, but I remember the
older people of the family asking him
why he talked so much to himself. He
replied: "Oh, well, I like occasionally
to talk with a man who has some
Now, I love to meditate with my
self. I don't talk any-and you are
at liberty to draw your own conclu
sion. But I was thinking about that
Charleston bunch, and their recep
tion in Newberry, and what their ob
ject was in going around over the
country, and I concluded it was a
good thing. I heard one of them say
that one of the ob.iects they had in
mind was to get the people of Char
leston united-together-that was the
first thing. TPhe next was to get them
away from Charleston and let them
realize and know that there was an
other and other places in the world.
Those two things, if accomplished,
would do a great deal for any commu
nity, and would repay alinost any rea-.
sona'ble outlay of money. It would
be a great thing for Newberry. Just.
to get our people together for a few
days and let them live in the same cart
and eat at the same table and drink
out of the same gourd. That would
'be worth any reasonavle outlay in
I heard a number of thes-e Charl'es
'ton visitors say they were delighted
with their stay in Newberry and the~
treatment they received, but, now,
honest, if the college boys and girls
and the graded school puapils and the
Newberry concert band had not been!
in the procession would we have
made much of a show with the busi-'
ness men who were out to greet and
welcome the visitors. Honest, now,
Mr. Merchant, and Mr. Business Man,
would we? And that is what I was
thiiking about. How IVttle interest
our business men take in anything~
that is for the general welfare, and
why is it? They are the greate-st
My ideal of lif'e is beautifu!y bx

What I Live For.
Whose hearts are kind and true:
For the heav n that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit, too;
For all human ties that bind me
For the task by God assigned mn,
For the bright hopes left behind me,
And the good that I can do.
I live to learn their story,
Who've suffered for my sake;
To emulate their glory,
And follow in their wake.
Bards, patriots, martyrs, sag-s,
The noble of all ages,
Whose deeds crown history's pa;es,
And times great volume make.
I live to hold communion
With all that is divine;
To feel there is a union
'Twixt nature's heart and inine;
To profit by affliction,
Reap truth from fields of fiction,
Grow wiser from conv:.otion,
And fulfill each g':ard design.
I live to hail that season,
By gifted minds foretold,
When man shall live by reason
And not alone by 'old;
When man to man united,
And every wrong thing righted,
The whole world shall be lighted
As Eden was of old.
I I live for those who love me,
For those who know me true;
For the h.eaven that smiles above me,
And awaits my spirit, too;
For the cause that lacks assistence.
For the future in the distance,
For the wrong that needs resistanct,
And the good that I can do.
It is grand and noble to live for
those who love you and for the good
you can do, for the wrong that .ieeds
resistance, and to hold communion
with all that is -iivine and to fael
that there is a 2rdon between the
heart of nature and yours. But above l
all for the good you can do. To rise
above the little petty spites and pre
judices of the world and the desire to
accumulate money and to dis regard
the rights of others. Oh, if we could
all just realiz'e the greatness and the
glory, and the happiness of living for
the good we could do, to live would
be sublime an41 life would be worthf
Then here is another little bit of
poetry I wou.ld li-ke for you to) read.
I wonder if anybody reads The Idler,
for, you know, sometimes I almost
conclude that nobody reads it, hut
anyhow I feel relieved of the great
responsibility resting on me when I
tell the good people of Newberry some
things straight from the shoulder, and
I have lived here long before the big
giants of finance who run the town
knew there was suen a place. I feel
like I have a right to .be heard, and
then T don't care whether they heed a
poor and humble idler like myself or
not. But here are some more beauti
The Quiet Toiler.
'Tis not'he who parades
His deeds before the world,
Holding aloft their worth,
Whose memory lives impearled
In the hearts of a people when
The years have died a-way,
But rather the man who toils
On quietly day by day.
'Tis he who at his task,
Be it high or be it lowly,
Strives with never a thought
Of self and praise, but wholly
Lost in the love of duty,
Who deems no man his debtor
And quietly toils each day
To make the world ever better.
- -George Newell Lovefoy.
I have fust been handed the follow
Ing communication, and while it is a
long stride from beautiful poetry to
goats, I guess I must make it:
Mr. Idler: Realizing, from expe'r
ience, the fact that goats are invalu
able as lawn mcwrers and as trimmers
of roses, I want to seek from you a
little information. The goats which
have been visiting my front yard trim
my roses and mow my grass all right,
but the trouble is that they don't use!
sufficient discretion as to how much
the lawn needs to be mowed or the
roses to be trimmed, or as to when
these duties~ should be performed.
Now, we all enjoy goats in our front
yards, the odcr being especially de
lightful in the beautiful spring, but
unless these parti-cular goats that
visit my front yard should be endow- '
ed with a little more discretion, I
won't have anything left but the bare
ground. Do the ordinances of the
town require that I post a gnardl to
keep the goats oi:'. or d1o ii r .
mne to murder the goat? Frankly. J
