The city council should enforce its
ordiances against tre erection of wood
en buildings within the fire limits and
no favorite should be known and no
We have been hearing for sometime
that arrangements had been made by
the city council to remove the old
burned building near the union depot
but nothing has been done. This ugly
Mark should be taken out of the street
It does seem a little curious to one
on the outside tbt Atto,rney General
Lyon should protest so vigorously
against the present winding-up dis-:'
pensary commision paying five hun
dred dollars for an attorney in view
-of the large amounts the State has
paid for attorney fees under his ad-1
vice in this dispensary business. And
in view' of the further fact that in re
gard to certain cases yet unsettled he
says he has not sufficient familiarity
with the facts in the case to proceed.
Newberry people are agitating the
question of a park. We thought New
berry was practically one big park.
It is true that Newberry is ideally
located and in a sense is one big park, j
but we expect to take what nature has (
done for us and assist nature in the
building of a central park.
We have not progressed as rapidly,
in this movenient as The Herald and t
News would like, but Newberry never b
rushes even though is the city that S
does things. When we build, we build
surely and substantially. b
The management of the Newberry v
'cotton mill has made an ideal resort
.;on its property, and it is the purpose
of! the people.of Newberry, in the cen
tr'e of the city, to build a park that d
will be a credit to cities much larger '1

* THE IDLER.*
It has been some time since I have
had time to write. In fact, it has
been too dry and dusty for me to!
think. You know, it takes a lot of
exertion for me to think, and I have
reached that point in li-te where I don't
have to-and that is great consolation
to an old person. But the' beautiful
rain has come at last and everybodyV
ought to be happy, and those who have
been grumbling and complaining I
should be ashamed of themselves. I
learned Iong ago not to complain of
'the weather, and not to fret and worry
about the doings cf Providence. It
does not help matters, and then, too,
I know that He knows better how to
rur this old world than I do, and that
He is going to do right, and my wor
rying and conr.plaining would not
change one iota.
There are one or two, or may be,
Shalf a dozen or more things, that do
worry me, however, and they worry
me because they could be remedied,
and remedied by those who ought to
remedy them. Suppose you walk ,
some afternoon or morning or noon
down Friend street towards the union
station and look either to th~e left or
the right, and tell me honestly if you
don't see some things that you think
could be remedied. For instance, that~
fire trap wher once was a cotton plat
form. and they tell me they are now t
making arrangements to open a gar
age right there, and that the building
is to be of wood with iron sidings.
Why, bless your life, 1 told the man I
heard say so that he was a fit subject
for that new club that Teddy had
formed, called Ananas-I believe a
that is the name of the distinguished
citizen for whom Tieddy named hisi
club-because I had read in the pa
pers where city council had refused a
permit to build just such a building s
within the fire limits, and I knew in
all reason that this spot was in th-e r
fire limits, and I just defied anybody
to assert that city council would :o
stultify itself. In fact. I know yet it
is rnot true. How could it be? Do you
believe it? Nay. nay, Jemimy. N
And yet. in the very face of what I;
saw in the paper to the contrary, that a
oIl burnedi buin sti:l holds its
head aloft and the precipice still
yawns right on down that very streer,
and right in the face of all visitors
who come to town on the railroads,
and stranger still. no one has fallen in
there so as to have a suit against the
2ity for damages. What a great op
portunity some good damage suit
lawyer is letting slip through his fin
gers. It will come yet and it will be
a. greater fall than.falling in the hole
which the Newberry Hardware com
pany dug. You remember about that
rall, don't you?
They tell me that the Eastsiders do
fock in great numbers to Willow
)rook. and they are very slow in sub
,cribing to The Idler's park. I sup
pose you thought I had forgotten about
hat park? Well, let me tell you, I'll
iever stop writing about it until it is
built, and I know you read what I
write. of course you do, even if you
have to go off by yourself to spell it
aut. Then the straight thing to do is
to come along and build the park, or
at least have a part in it.
I am no politician, but I do read the
papers and the Bible and the diction
ary and a little poetry, and I have al
most burst my sides laughing about
that feller they call Col. Felder. When
that "T. B." letter came out he land
ed a broadside at Gov. Blease, which
some of the papers publishied with a
relish and. by the way, if that was not
libelous then libel can not be written
-but he made a great threat that he
would write a book on the governor
nd mail a copy to every voter in
outh Carolina, and he gave the gov
5rnor only thirty days of grace. But
:he book has not appeared and the
:hirty days did not wait. In fact,
:hey have gone long ago. Now I see
hat Col. Felder is going to lay this
)ook before a South Carolina grand
ury, but he is going to wait until
'ov. Blease goes out of office. In the
aeantime Sheriff Buford has gone to
Ltlanta to bring this same Col. Feld
r to be and appear before a New
erry grand jury. This is comedy and
ragedy all combined. The colonel's
luff has :been called and he didn't
how down. Sometimes a bluff will
rin the chips but not always. Sheriff'
suford says he always 'brings in the
irds when he goes after them. We
ril see how he com'es out with this
ird. If 'he should bring this one to
fewberry it would 'be a greater draw
ag card than Chautauqua week. For
ou must remember that this Col. Fel
er asserts most vehemently that he)
ass never in all his life been in New
erry, and he, thereforei, su.re has)
omething coming to him and some
hing for which to live, and I am sure
heriff Buford will treat him as the
ignity of the man and his position
varrant. But I am not in politics and
now very little of the game, and,
here'fore, better leave it alone, so here,
I was hoping that clean-up week
could be observed 'before commence-)
nent and now that it has rained I
iope every citizen will constitute
iimself and 'herself a laborer of one
o put the old town in her neatest gar..
nents for the commencement season.
suppose we all try it. I hate to do
.hat kind of work as bad as any one,
)ut I will try and do my part. Chief,
what about monument square? I

Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Schumpert.
Mrs. Elizabeth Schumpert, widow'
if Mr. Geo. A. Schumpert, died at 'her
