We wish all the people of Newberry
could go over to Pickens and see how
they work and keep up the roads in
that mountainous section. It is a
ipleasure to ride over them. The same
is true of Greenville.
The Spartanburg Journal says that
the News-Scimitar at Greenwood does
not know how to spell its own name.
The Journal should remember that
there is no fixed rule in the spelling
of proper names. But maylbe the Jour
nal does not consider this a proper
Everybody and all the children
should go to the State fair next week.
The Southern railway will operate a
special traid on Wednesday and
Thursday, so thit you may go down
in the morning and return the same
afternoon. The C., N. & L. has such a

Why not have one in Newberry. Won
der if the merchants and business men
of this city would give ay more en
couragement and support to one now
than they did some years ago, whel
we made the experiment. A little pub
lie spirit. and a pulling all together
will move any town along.
Mr. C. A. David had a very true
cartoon, -if a horrible one, in the
Greenville News the other day, in
which he represented the "Bird man's''
unseen passenger as death. Some such
personage seems to follow reckless
driving of automobiles. It will 'con
tinue to do som long as reckless driv-.
ingis indulged in.
The State Farmers' -union. bas called
ameeting to be held in Columbia on
the evening of November 2 to dis
cuas the'.cotton situaion and to de
vise ways and means to market the
bl3ance of the crop and to see what

Sand a halt million bales ginned up to,

a bumper crop, or even if ginned as.
A great mm.a of the counties are
holding county -fairs and from the
- newspaper accounits the fairs this year
have been successful. Many years agoi
Newberry had a splendid fai-r, which I
was kept up.for several years. It was
'prolably -never.a financial success, -but
the attendance was always good, and i
*he exhibits were good, and the peo$ 1
pie g@t Wtbthr an~d Were eneQouraged
to better farmning. It would be esierI
taoakea uccessful fairnowin New.t
~ry than4t-wae then. We have of-11
ten wondered why our enterprising
eiiesdid not rvive the old fair ideal
*and have a fair in Newberry.
The newspapers have been la:boring
very hard to make it appear that Gov.
Blease would oppose Senator Tillman
for the senate next year, and also to
make 'it appear that there - was a
breach between Senator Tillman and
.Gov. Blease. We hav-e never seen any-I
thing that would warrant the asser
tion that there was a breach or that
Gov. -Blease -would oppose Senator
Tillman. We suppose the idea was1
that by continuing to repeat it the!
-papers would come .to -believe it them
selves and would -make the people be
lieve that there was some foundation
iu fact for the Tumor.
We see it stated in the Iiews dis
patches from Anderson that Col. WIl
liam Banks, formerly with thec St:ate,
would go to Anderson on the first of
Notember to take charge of the edi-,
torial col'irns of the Anderson Mail.'

and will do good service on the Mail.
He was reporter and then city editor
and special correspondent of the State
for a number of years. Does his going
to the Mail mean that the State has
acquired that property also? The
State now owns or controls a string of
papers from Columbia via Charlotte to
Greenville, and we were a little Cu
rious to know if it were going to in
cluded the Mail in the synadicate. Of
course, it is none of our business, and
we hope the curiosity exhibited will
not be considered impertinent.
The county of Newberry is not pay
ing current expenses now, for the rea
son that there is no money. The leg
islature has been, following the un
business-like method of not providing
a sufficient revenue with which to
meet the current expenses of the coun
ty. In fact, we understand that the
revenue provided lasks about five
thousand dollars annually of being
sufficient to meet the expense account.
It will not take long at this rate
for the county to be pretty deep in
debt. It will have to be paid. Then
why not make the levy sufficient to
raise the money necessary to pay the
actual expenses of the county. There
was a time, .ossibly, when the people
could be fooled by telling them you
had either not increased the levy or
that you had reduced it and thereby
reduced taxes. They can't be fooled
now. They know the only way to re
duce taxes is to reduce exipenditares
and -unless this is done nothing is
gained by putting off the day of reck
ning-the day of debt paying. Then
it is better for the county to be run -on
