There are many things for which to
be thankful and we hope the day will
be properly and appropriately observ
v. To some of us it- will be a day
of sadness, but we have no right and
no desire to make it such a day to
The supervisor is going right on
buRding the Prosperity-Newberry
highway on the old road bed without
avoiding any of those dangerous grade
grossings. They are death traps and
as population and traffic Increase they
will become more dangerous, and now
b the time when at least some of them
obould have been taken out. What are
a few hundred dollars compared with
4he life of the citizens who hare to
eavel this road. We have not chang
*I our mind that ft is criminal to
build a good road with all these grade
omings when some of them at least
eauld have been avoided. It takes back
bene and courage to perform public
daties and we frequently find it want
tog in public officials.
We suppose Col. Felder will be en
eouraged to write his book now that a
Newberry grand jury has refused to
3eturn a true bill against him. One
thing no doubt is established and that
is that the "T. B." letters are genuinel
and not forgeries as he protested on
a former occasion.
It is said that the grand jury stood
ten for "no bill" and eight for a "true
bill" in the Felder case.
Whitmire is to have a newspaper. I
We wish they had come down to New
berry. We would rave been glLI to
sell them one already established.
We do not see much of a holding
scheme in that fifty million dollar
proposition of the New York bankers
to let the farmers hold their cotton.
If it was not to be taken from the
channels of trade how was there any
holding proposition in It? It seems to
-as to be.a plan to permit the bankers:
to corner the market.
Ed DeCamp says that Gov. Blease
preached a good sermon over at Gaff

dress was interesting and instructive,
and yet there was something some

The State board of education will
meet next Monday and will at that
time elect a superintendent of educa
tion for Newberry county to take the
place of Mr. J. S. Wheeler at the
close of this year. It is one of the
most important positions in the coun
ty. There is no position that so near
ly affects the best interests of the
county as that of county superintend
ent of education.
Only one life has been sacrificed so
far as a result of the Savannah auto
mobile races, and that was in a prac
tice rutn some days ago. It is to be
hoped that in the big Thanksgiving
events there will be no fatalities. The
Columbia Record suggests that if
there 'were fewer casualties at these
racir g events there would be smaller
crowds-that the excitement produced
by the feeling that* every turn of the
wheel may bring death to some one
of the contestants has much to do with
drawing the crowds, and that this feel
ing is akin to that ot the ancients as
they delighted in the gladiatorial con
tests. We are afraid this is too ti-ue.
The age is speed-mad.
After all, why should Felder be
prosecrted. even if he did commit a
crime? Isn't he the hero of a novel?
Wldle the petit juries had little to
do this week, the criminal court dis
posed .'af a es-'t deal of business, and

It is a good rule to stand by youi

The fact that the negro enrolment it
qewberry county is double that of the
whites Is called attention to by the
;rand jury. The enrolment has been
Lbout in this proportion for several
rears past, and The Herald and News
ias been calling attention to it every
rear, and doing its best to urge the
white people to' see to It that every
white child in Newberry county has a
ommon school education, at least
he negroes are taking advantage ol
wvery opportunity to secure even th(
)arest smatterings of an education
and yet some of the politicians tell
is that a compulsory education la%
would force the negro to school.
Every farmer who can possibly d(

they can about corn growing.

Col. Hugh Wilson, in the Abbevill4
Press and Banner, scores Senator
Smith for the use of a lot of profanity
n a recent address at Abbeville. Per
1aps Senator Smith needed something
:o make his remarks forcible, but the
lse of profanity is a mighty poor way
o emphasize an utterance in a public
SIITH AND COTTON.
When Senator E. D. Smith was ii
~ewberry some time ago he was tell
ng us how the departmnt of agricul
ure was misleading the country anc
'bearing" 'the cotton market by issu
ng estimates entirely too large and
aow he had made a hero of himnseli
ay telling Secretary Wilson what hi
:hought of him and putting the coun
:ry on notice that the estimates wer<
erroneous. And now it seems that, in
stead of being too large, that even th4
government estimates were too small
and that, compared with what the croj
actually will be, Senator Smith's esti
nates won't get in the running at all
We agree with Sen 3.or Smith tha
there ought to be more effective mean
t'or procuring accurate estimates o
the crop, and that the estimates ough

mating the crop, and that it is crim
inal and all the other things whici
Senator Smith says it is, for any de
partment of the government to be con
trolled by any, special interests. The
truth is what the country wants ant
what the Southern farmer wants i1
these estimates. But, somehow, w4
aever did agree with Senator Smit]
that he was exactly the proper man
all by himself, to regulate a depart
rnent of government, and, someho.w
we never were convinced that Senato>
Smith's election would put up and
keep up the price of cotton.
Senator Smith has a finely patheti<
way of telling of his heroic efforts iI
behalf of the Southern farmer, bu
these efforts don't seem to have born!
very happy results rn!s year.
Of course, Senator Smith isn't re.
sponsible for the low price of cotton
ot for a moment would we miakl
this charge against him. On the oth
er hand, when cotton was soaring, wi
are equally conv'inced that Senato:
Smith's strenuosity na nothing to dc
with the high price of cotton.

again. It is t6o apropos, and it is a

Well, what then?
Why, just this:
Some one has to brotect the woman
'hood and motherhood of our land; and
when a man so far forgets himself and
the solemn obligation which he as
sumed at the altar, it is time that he
be called to account. And I know no
one better qualifie& than the issue
from the trusting woman whom he
mistreats. To honor one's father is
1all right, just as it is ordained that
it should be, but, to honor the spring
from which blood and breath have
come is instinct. I honor the judge,
who signed the petition for clepiency;
I honor all who subsequently affixed
their signatures; but I want' to say
that the boy should never have been
taken from the mother he risked his
young life for; and, in conclusion, I
honor the executiv1e who's got the
nerve to give him back to the family
he knew how to protect.

does a thriving trade, and her tongue
is a rapid worker. On a receat Wed

noticing a fresh Issue of a weekly
publication that was not usually on
sale until the following day. He pur
chased a copy, remarking at the same!

news woman. "You see, it generally
