A pull all together now and the park
for Newberry wilfte secured.
A small amount from each one in
easy payments will securefthe park.
Be ready to .give your subscription
for the park to the committees wher
they call tomorrow so as to save time.
Will discuss it with you ip the park
as soon as it opens.
The ladies who are going out to
morrow to raise the money for the
park mean business, and would like
to finish in three hours, from 11 to 2,
so thoy may go home to dinner with
the money secure.
If any of the committees fail to
see you tomorrow, it will not be inten
tional, and we do not want you to feel
slighted, but come right around .to the
office of The, Herald and News and
put down your) subscription.
No use to hold up the commission
of the probate judge of Orangeburg,
because of the 'little question of two
offices. It is true that the constitu
tion of 1895 is against two offices to
one man, but tha law makers them
selves say the constitution doesn't
mean what it says.

The Daily Journal is the latest ac
quisition to daily journalism in South
Carolina. It is published by G. WV.
. Gardner, Sr., and G. W. Gardner, Jr.,
at present publishers of the Greenwood
Journal. It is a neat and well printed
paper and carries editorial comment,
local and telegraphic news. It re
minds us very muc'h of the Evening
Telegram which we launicned in New
berry several years, in make-up and
appearance, except the advertising
-columns which are more liberally
patronized by the business men ol
Greenwood ,than *was the case with
the business of Newberry to tne Even
ing Telegram. If the business mer
will give the Daily Journal ten col
umns of advertising daily at a reason
able rate the paper canx nye. The
business men of Greenwood are live
and progressive and we believe they
will. It will pay them to do it, for a
live daily is a good advertisement ir
itself for any town. We wish the nem
paper abundant success.
TO BUILD ROAD IN ONE DAY.
We notice with gratification tha
Secretary McKeand, of the Charlestoi
chamber of commerce, is working or
a plan to build a 300 mile highway i1
one day. He proposes to link Ashe
ville and Charleston with a ine zand
clay thoroughfare. This is the sam
project which was laun :hed mt New
berry some weeks ago on a snm:lle
scale, however, when we unidertool
and formed a joint committee to bi)li
a highway between Gre?nvile and Cu
Wear ve-ry glad to have Mr-. Mc
Keand and his chamber of commere
work with us along the same line, ana
we desire to say to him that we wi]
be delighted to receive suggestion
and to co-operate in this movement.
The road from Columbia to Green
ville has been practically agreed upon,
and really the only route that could
be taken with -any assurance of a good
road in the near future is via New
berry and Laurens. If it should be
desired to go to Spartanburg, t.ere
are several practical and feasible
routes after you reach Newberry, or
you can go to Greenville and then
take the national highway to Spar
The road from Newberry to Green
ville is in fairly good condition, but
no doubt after the rains of the past
few days, needs dragging.
We understand that the supervisor
of Lexington is already at work car
rying out his promise, and is now
building the road between Lexington
We did not expect to build the road
in a day, but we hoped to secure the
co-operation of the people along the
way and of the supervisors of the sev
eral counties, and to take at least a
week or ten. days to put the road in
fine condition. However, we will be
,glad to arouse an interest and co
operate with our Charleston friends,
and we are satisfied that we can get
the people of this section to give of
their labor and teams for one or more

THE IDLER. *

In one of my previous articles I said
something about the kicker, who was
like the frog that churned the ball of
butter. I have recently read a little
poem on "The Knocker," which I am
going to print. Now, I want the read
er to differentiate between the "knock
er" and the "kicker." The "knock
er" is an obstructionist. He wants to
pull down, and stands in the way of
progress. He is a fellow who is "agin
the government." A kicker is a con
structionist. If you don't know the
meaning of these big rwords, get down
your dictionary. The kicker builds up,
as note the illustration of the two
Ifrogs 'and the 'ball of butter. I am a
kicker but not a knocker, and I want
you to differentiate.
Here is the poem on ''The Knock
(By Fred Parkerham.)
Throw your hammer back into' Yhe
Don't hide the square likewise;
Anyone can be a kno'iker;
Any one can criticise.
Cultivate a style that's winning;
Crack it though it hurts- to smile,
'Twill be hard at the b.eginning;
But boost it just a little while.
Let the blacksmith do the pounding;
He's the one that gets the pay.
SYou don't get a cent for hounding
Saint or sinner night and day.
And for good old satisfaction,
Drop a kind word in the slot,
I'll 'bet eight cents you'll get action
For your efforts on the spot.
'Cause the old machine's a working,
Making mirth where there's a frown,
IFid the place to set it humming
For the man that5s way, way down.
And the next day will seem much
If you'll kindle friendship's flame
And make the burden kind of' lighter
For the boy behind the game.
So send your grunts out on vacation;
Give your uglin-ess a shock;
Throw the hammer back into the tool
Lock it up, and lose the lock.
Right here in old Newvberry there
1are too many knockers. They hound
saints and sinners every day. They
are no respectors of persons. They
love the sport so well that the2y don't
give a cent for the pay. Even when
it would pay them better not to kncck
they keep right on. Let any body
-start anything in Newberry and some
-of these old knockers will shrug their
shoulders and grunt, if they don't do
-any more, even when it would be to
their interest to smile and encourage.
rNow, I am a kicker against that sort
Sof thing, and I hope yet to churn a
ifew balls of good rich butter before
-I go hence, though the shadows are
,lengthening and the days are drawing
to an end.
ElOt my last summYer's old Pana
*ma, and it 's the only one I have, that
some of these jedoWS vill knock The
Idlers p~h . - '~ starts
that campaign-that is if he ever
starts it-to raise the money.
The editor told me the other day
that a progressive merchant-or he
thought he was-told him-the editor
-when he mentioned park to him,
that he would not give a cent to it
and that he estimated there were about
5,000 people in this town and that 4,
900 of them would be like him. The
editor wouldn't give me the name of
this live and progressive merchant,
and since I come to think about it, I
am glad he didn't, because I would
prefer not to know his niame-but he
-the editor-thought I ought to know
both sides. Well, I don't believe that
fellow knows what he is talking about.
And I don't believe he represents the
sentiments of the people of this com
munity, and if these women's organ
izations will just get busy, as I be
lieve they will, they'll show him and
those that think like him, a think or
two. The Idler's park is a dead sure
Why, I would like to get that class
of people to read a little. See what
Memphis is'doing. See what they are
going to do in Atlanta and Augusta
and Spartanburg and almost every
other town. The park's the thing
everywhere, and it has all come prom
inently to the front since I have been
talking park in NewDerry, and The
Idler's park has not come yet. I still
hav%e some faith in the good sense of
a majority of the good people of New
berry and I believe they realize the
value of a park and .that now is the
time--to secure it.. At any rate I am
godng to .give them the opportunity.
Fact is, a hundred people at a hun
dred each is all I want now, but I am
going to give opportunity to the ten
dollar people in this great movement.
In this world a few people carry the
load and the others enjoy themselves.
But had you ever thought of the im
mutable, unchangeable, and certain
law of compensation and recompense.
It is just as certain as that the stars
shine in the heavens, or that the sea
sons come. "Whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap," is
just as true today as it was when it
was first dictated. Sometimes it seems
that the harvest is a long time in com
ing-that it is a long time between
seasons-but be not deceived-the
ight will prevail-truth is mnighty
and you can't crush it to earth~ and
keep it crushed.
Sometimes the thought can be bet
ter expressed in verse. Read these
lines and ponder them well:
The Law of Recompense.
There is no wrong by any one com
But will recoil.
Its sure return, with double ill repeat
No skill can foil.
As on the earth the mist it yields Le
Descends in rain,
So on his head whoe'er ha.s evil given
It falls again.
It is ;he law of life that retribution
Shall follow wrong.
It never fails, although the execution
May tarry long.

Just, true and right,

Our hearts delight.
I read in the daily paper recently
where two United States senators had
spoken and I want to quite the follow
ing extracts from this report. Read
Senator Taylor asserted that money
madness had brought Americans to a
state where "if they were to go to
heaven they would dig up th e golden
streets of the New Jerusalem and do
duty on the harps of the angels to pro
tect American industries."
Senator Owen said it was impossi
ble for the government to control
trusts when the trusts already con
trolled .the goverr.ment. A return of
power to the hands of the people,, he
asserted, was the only remedy for con
ditions that prevail today whe,, "nct
only -legislatures are controlled by
corporations, but judges are appoint
Ied that are favorable to the interests.'
These money mad fellows needn't
worry about tearing up the golden
streets. My advice to them is to make
arrangements for deep wels and
plenty of water for they will likely
have more need of that than they will
of gold. You will remember that it
is recorded of one of them a it he
lifted up his eyes and beheld the poor
fellow whom he had refused the'
crumbs from his table in old Abra
ham's bosom and he wanted word sent
bak to his brethren, but It was too
late-awful words-too late. Mone3
