Entered at the Postoffice at New
berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.

The Newberry people want W. J.
Bryan for president, preacher or any
thing else for which he is prepared.
And he would fill any of the posi
%ions named with credit to himself
ad the country. He is by far the
ciggest and broadest man in America
W. J. Bryan did not sweep all the
.audiences in this State which heard
him off their seat and bring them to
-their feet. The fact is that many of
them had an idea that he was just
"saying his speech."-Spartanburg
Oh, go way. You fare just jealous
because Bryan didn't say his speech
in Spartanburg. You should have
come to Newberry. Then you could
have heard him, for he sure knows
how to say his speech, and you could
have seen a city that does things.
If the penitentiary hosiery mill is
abolished, the credit for it will belong
largely to Governor Blease-Yorkville
And it should be abolished and will
be. Then the convicts should be put
on the public roads. The State could
very well take up the building of roads
across the State.
The Newberry papers say that the
Newberry Chautauqua will be elabo
rate. Do Bryan and Hobson make it
And i.t was elaborate and Bryan and
Hobson contributed their part. All
the numbers were .good. You should,
hiave spent the week with us.
The Herald and News says Gov.
Blease is the only son that Newberry
ever furnished in the executive office.:
M!ay she never furnish another.
Don't you fret nor worry about
Newberry. She has a score or more
io statesmen who are willing and anx
ious. A.nd many of them just now
are out of a job political.
Capt. Hobson made a lasting im
pression on the people of Newberry
-who beard his magnificent address.

turnanswerable. He is a thinker and

felt very lonely in Atlanta when they'
saw all that array of counsel. It is

Now that Chautauqua week and~
"home-coming week 'are facts of his
tory, and important facts in the history
-.A Nwbhrry-.and I am delighted be-1
yond expression that the week was
such a success-I can see no reason
why the people should not get to
gether and let us have The Idlers'
park. I was just looking over the list
of guarantors for the Chautauqua and
was musing to myself that these forty
gentlemen could easily guarantee $100
each to the park, and it would be built
and they would never miss the money,
and they would be doing an everlast
ing benefit to the present and all fu
ture generations in the town of New
berry, and it would be easier next year
to make Chautauqua week a success.
Every effort by which you get the
people together makes you stronger
for the next effort.
I notice in The Herald and News
that Mayor Langford wants The Idler
to know that the old burnt building
in Friend street has been torn down.
Well, I was awful glad when I read
that. So I strolled out that way the
other day. The silent sentinels that
held their heads proudly aloft are
knocked down but did you look, down
into that abyss? Did you see the de
bris? The chasm still yawns and now
the sharp spikes bid welcome to any
one who desires to take a trip down
the chasm. Why not do the job right
while you are at it.
It is possibly none of my business,
and I kno.w it is better always to at
tend to your own business-that is if
you have any-but I can't help making
an observation or two as I go along,
and they are not meant in any sense
to interfere with the business or the
rights of any other citizen so long as
that other citizen does not interfere
with the rights or the happiness of
some other citizen. If I don't soon
get to my point I will forget it myself.
Well, I was going on to say that on
several former occasions - I had ob
served that it only took a couple of
half hours to make out of those who
were good enough to purchase an au
tomobile an expert driver. I am de
lighted to observe that our people are
so quick to 'learn the mysteries of auto
driving. This is observation number
one. I also observe that a great many
of our little boys are becoming expert
in the handling of these machines and
do not hesitate in the smallest degree
to joy ride right through our narrow
strets even on a 'Saturday evening
when the s'.reets are usually congest
ed to some extent. This is observa
tion number two and it is a pleasure
to me to see the precociousness of
the youth of my native city in the
handling of machinery. There is a
speed limit in the.city and there is a
stopping ordinance. These are ob
served semiloccasionally, I judge as
it suits the convenience of the driver.
This is observation number three. Now
as observation number four I desire to
edicate a poem to those who do not
The Modern Juggernaut. .
et out of the way, ye sons of men,
The joy ride comes apace,
And what's a hunmn life or so
To th'e mad thrill of the race?
he demon speed is at the wheel
All else thrown to the wind,
And ruin cheers the wild rush on,
While grim death rides behind.
et out of the way, ye women frail!
Each little playing child,
or what chance has your safety now
'Gainst the joy ride dashing wild,
With its swaying weight and its speed
And its sharp curve in and out,
When ere there's time to turn and flee,
The spark of life's crushed out?
The Juggernaut flies on its way,
Its victims in its trail,
But what can those in darkened homies
Do aught, but sob and wail?
ur streets are in the speed fiend's
And lives are in his power,
For some migst pay for joy rides gayl
At sixty miles an hour.
Now I would not be misunderstood,
for I am a friend of the automobile
and I know it is here to stay and I
want it to stay, but I would like to
see those who have cars remember
that those who have not should be
given at least/a wee bit of considera
tion. Put yourself in the other fel
lows place now and again. I know it
is hard to do, but it will help you aw
fully if you will only try to do it. I
have a great many things I want to
say but the weather has been too hot
to think or to write without thinking.
The great succes.s of Chautauqua
week should prove a great blessing to
the town. It proves what can be done
if only a few men get together and de
termine to do it. Even those who
were indifferent or not interested at
'the beginning see now the advantages
of the enterprise and are ashamed of
their indifference and will help next
