The Columbia State seems to bE
champing the bit and -slightly foamine
at the mouth.
Anderson appropriated three hun
dred dollars to aid the Anderson base
ball club. Of course city council is
not going to fail to aid Newberry's
A dispatch from Washington sever
al days ago was to the effect thai
Congressman Richmond Pearson Hob
son had a bill for the construction of
two great automobile highways bi
secting the nation, one from the Cana
dian line to the Mexican line and thE
other from the Atlantic seaboard tc
the Pacific. When Mr. Hobson gets
to Newberry Chautauqua we. will see
iif we cant' get him to change his bill
so as to have one of those highways
pass through Newberry.
We are rather inclined to think that
probably Hasty's crime deserved more
punishment than it has received. How
ever, as Editor DeCamp suggests, thE
lesson which has been taught 'him
may be sufficient to make of him a
good and useful member of society.
Those on the ground are in much
better position to judge of a situation
than those who are at a distance, and
too often there is unfavorable and un
just criticism from those whose
knowledge of that which they criticise
does not justify them in speaking.
The automobile has become an im
portant factor in business and social
life, but its usefulness can and will be
eeriously marred unless there is some
check 'upon speeding through the
thoroughfares of the towns and cities.
If the written laws count for naught
automobilists should have some re
gard for the safety and the lives of
others. In the hands of experienced
drivers there is less danger, of course,
but as soon as a person takes hold of
a steering wheel it seems that he im
mediately becomes an expert.
Governor Blease's position in the
hosiery mill matter and on the peni
tentiary situation generally is being
warmly commended throughout this
and other States. It is a much more
serious crime than some of those in
the penitentiary have committed f.or
the State to al-low its prison to et
in such a miserably 'unsanitary con
dition that 60 per cent. of the prison
ers therein confmned are victims of tu
berculosis, and if the hosiery mill
breeds the disease it can not be shut
down too soon.
A city -park has 'been opened in
Odiaggeburg. It is stated that the
land was leased by the civic leagu.e,
and, with the help of the city, it has
been equipped with everything neces
sary to make -it an ideal play ground
for children and an ideal recreation
place for the grown people as well.
Orangeburg is to be congratulated up
on this important step in her growth
and development. A city without a
park in this modern age of the world,
in the year 1911, is lagging behind the
march of progress, and lagging be
GOOD STREET WORK.
City council and the street authori
ties are to be commended for the per
manent work which is being done in
putting in concrete curbing along the
cement sidewalks in certain sections
of the city. This is work which will
'last, and it not only is a great im
p'rovement, so far as looks are con
cerned, but it is *a needed protection
for the cement walks.
One matter to which council ought
to give attention is the improvement
of the sidewalk along Friend street
from the depot to Caldwell strect. at
least. Leading directly from the de
pot towards the hotels and the busi
'ness centre of the city, this is an i
portant thoroughfare. and the first
city, and it aids in forming their firs1
impression of Ne wberry. This side
walk is now in very bad condition. I

Death of Mrs. Cofield.
Arriving on the 2.48 Southern traii
on Monday was the body of Mrs. M
B. Cofield. relict of Dr. J. E. Cofield
formerly of Newberry county. Mrs
Cofield died in Charlotte on Sunda:

Chapman, F. L. Bynum., Dr. W. G
Houseal. Dr. E. C. Jones.
Mrs. Cofield was well known in thE
State, having been for about 15 yean
teacher at Columbia college, when
she was much loved by the facult]
and students. About a year ago shE
resigned on account of ill health.
The Charlotte Observer of Monda
says of Mrs. Cofield's death:
"After a year of ill health and tw<
weeks of critical illness, Mrs. Mar:
Bethune Cofield died late yesteraa
aftern.oon at the home of her sister.
with whom she had spent the pas

"About 26 years ago Mrs. Cofield
was married to Dr. James Cofield ol
Newberry, S. C., who died there som<
six years later. Since then for fifteer
years Mrs. Cofield had occupied the
chair of English .in Columbia college
at Columbia, S. C., resigning last June
on account of the condition of hex
Ihealth. She- was educated at Colum
bia college and afterwa,rd pursued
post-graduate work in Harvard uni
versity and the University of Chicago.
A woman of native gifts and unusual
mental ability, her splendid scholas
tic training and sincere devotion tc
literature crowned 'her personality
with the rare dignity and appealing
charm of true culture. As a precep
tress her reputation for thoroughness,
discernment and ability to teach was
high and equally .notable was the
warm place which she held in the af
fections of those with whom she was
associated in the college world, both
among students and associate mem
bers of the faculty. Her summers she
'had always spent in Charlotte, where
she is held in affectionate remem

day by the side of those of 'her hus

her sisters. will leave this morning on

New York Herald.
Kentucky has lon.g been known to
be the mother of wit~ and eloquence
as well as the State of feuds. This
State ,produced 'her Henry Clay, her
Breckenridge, her Wattersons, her
Crittendens, her Calhouns-, and now
she is coming forward with a new
school of orators, scholars and poets.
WV. P. KimbalH, formerly represen
tative, easily 'heads the list as an af
ter-dinner spealker and has a close
second in Col. George Bain, the well
known temperance lecturer, while
Judge JTames Mulligau is a real wit
It was whilce in Boston delivering
a lecture to a choice crowd of hlue
stocking temperance people that Col.
Bain was accosted with the question:
"How is it, Colonel Bain, that you
have the nerve to preach temperance
when you come from Kentucky, the
State that has more distilleries than
any other State in the Union?"
For a moment, and only for a mo
ment. Colonel Bain was embarrassed.
Then came the reply without hesi
"Ohi, yes, Kentucky-Kentucky, the
State where I was borr;
"Where the corn is full of kernels and
the colonels full of corn."
Returning home from Washington
after s:rving his term in congress a
banquet was tendered to Mr. Kimball.
He had expected to make a speech in
which he would review his congres
ional creer. To his surprise the
toistmas ter did not call for this, but
asked Mr. Kimbill to respond to the
toast "Kentucky." The congressman
was clearly at a loss and in sheer des
peration he blurted out:
"Kentucky-fair Kentucky!" Here
he stopped to sip a drink of water.
When he resumed there was no hint
"Kentucky, the grandest State in
all the union-the State where the'
ground is so mellow that all you have
to do is to tickle its sides and it
yields abundant crops.
"Kentucky. 0 Kentucky. where the
grass is greener. where the sky is
blu'er, where the whiskey is better.
wher the women are more beautiful
where the horses are faster. where
politics is rottener, where the feuds
are thicker. where the mountains are
higher, where the valileys are lower
thai in any other State in the Union!
I "Why, my God. gentlemen, believe
me, mountains are so high in Ken-!
tuckey that from the topmost moun
tain peak you may reach up and
tickle the feet of the sainted Demo
crats who have gone before.
"And gentlemen," here Kimball's
voice dropped to almost a whisper.
"the valleys are so infernaaly low that;
you may reach down and hand ice
water to the Republicans who have
But it remains for Judge James
Mulligan to reel off poetry extempor-I
aneously by the foot, yard or mile.
Recently the Democrats of Ken
tucky sfiffered a crushing defeat and
commiserated one another at- a spread.
One of the speakers had declared
that in his opinion Democracy was
dead. Judge Mulligan followed him
,with what was considered by those,
present as a fitting rebuke.
Here it is:
When Democracy Will Die.
When the lion eats grass like an ox
And the fish worm swallows the
When the terrapin knits wool socks
And a hare is outrun by the snail,
When serpents walk upright like men.
And doodle bugs travel like frogs,
When the grasshopper feeds upon the
And feathers are found on hogs;
When Thomas cats swim in the air
And elephants roost upon trees,
When insects in summer are rare
And snuff never makes People'
When fish creep over dry land
And mules on velocipedes ride,
When foxes lay eggs in the sand
And women in dreams take no pride,
When Dutchmen no longer drink beer
And girls get to preaching on- time.
When the billygoat buts from the rear
And treason no long?er is crime, I
When the humming bird brays like1
And limb erger smells like cologne, I
When ploighshares are made out of
And hearts of Kentuckians are
When sense grows in Republican
And wool on the hydraulic ram,
Then the Democratic party will be.I
And this country not worth a damn.
