3MNAUGH'S 11G SALE.
IAnnual January Offering of Talues in
Big Department Store.
When a merchant takes two pages
of a newspaper to tell the people of a
sal-e which he is about to inaugurate
he usually has something to talk
about, and means business. This is
the case with Mimnaugh, in this is
sue of The Herald and News.
Mimnaugh's big annual January sea~
will begin On Friday morning, Jan
uary 26, at 9 o'clock. It will continue
for ten days. Mimnaugh says it will
be the biggest of the many big sales
Ihe has pulled off since he has been in
business in Newberry. That means
something. Mimnaugh's big sales of
the past have opened the eyes of the
buying public, and his sales are now
always looked forward to with inter
est and eagerness.
Mimnaugh has the bargains, and he
is using two pages of The Herald and
News today to tell the people about
them. He has the goods, and he is ad
vertising the big values, and he means
what he says. That is a secret of
Mimnaugh's success. He secures the
bargains, advertises them, and does
what he advertises he is going to do.
Mimnaugh's ad ought to receive the
careful attention of the readers of The
Herald and News. 'there are start
ling values offered in every depart
ment of one of the biggest and most
successful department stores in this
section of the Carolinas.
And remember, Mimnaugh means
CHAUTAUQUA FOR 1912.
Plans On Foot to Make Chautauqua
Week This Year Even More Suc
cessful Than Last Year.
Plans are now being made for New
berry's second Chautauqua week. The
first Chautauqua :eek, last .funl, was
an unqualified success, and there is
no reason to doubt that Newberry's
Chautauqua of 1912 will be an even
There were 32 guarantors in the
Chautauqua association of last year.
Considerably more than a :iajority of
these members have already signed an
agreement to continue the association
for this year arrl to glaraLee the ex
penses. The oflicers <;1 last year have
been re-elected, as follows:
President-Henry Lee Dean.
Secretary--John Henry Baxter.
Treasurer-John B. Mayes.
The association on its first year,
with one of the best and highest-priced
lyceum attractions, continuing fur a
week, came out ahead, and now has
about $75 on hand. This amount is
subject to the call of the memb-ers for
their proportionate share, if they do
not desire to continue in the associa
tion. Most of them, however, have
signed up for this year. If there are
any who do not care to sign, however,
and desire their share of the profits,
they may secure same by calling on
Treasurer Mayes. The profits were
very small, but the fact that a Chau
tauqua on such a large scale made
some profit the first year is encourage
ment looking towards greater things
in the future.
Miss J. F. Taylor, who submitted the
program of the Alkahest Lyceum sys
tem, which was adopted last year, and
which proved a big success, has been
in Newberry for several days past,
and submitted a most excellent pro
gram of a circuit Chautauqua course.
An advisory committee, consisting of
Messrs. H. L. Dean,. E. H. Aull, John
B. Mayes, I. H. Hunt, W. A. McSwain
and C. E. Summer, was appointed to
take under consideration the course
submitted by Miss Taylor. It was de
cided' not to close the contract until
February 1, and in the meantime the
advisory committee was instructed to
investigate other courses.
The Chautauqua lists will be open
to new subscribers, according to no
tice to be given.
IN.ewberry's first Chautauqua week
was a big thing for Newberry, and it
is expected to make Chautauqua week
of 1912 a bigger thing for Newberry.
NEWBERRY VR. DAVIDSON.
Thrilling name of Basket Ball is Ex
Ipected at Newberry College Gym
nasium Wednesday Night.
On Wednesday night, January 24, at
8.30 p. in., at the Newberry college
gymnasium, there will be a game -of
basketball, which it :s expected will
indeed be a great and inte:rest:.n:r, as
well as exciting contes'. Tl.3 D)avdlsor.
college basketball teamu will battie
with Newberry's 'varsity for the sLi
premacy. Davidson has won against
some strong teams this year and has a
team of good worth. Newberry's var
sity has won all games already played.
On Thanksgiving day, it will be re
membered,, the basketball "five" went
to Erskine and won by the score of 23
to 9. On last Friday, a week ago,
Carolina went down in defeat in a
great game Uiefore the terrible rush of
Newberry, to the tune of 27 to 23.
Considering the reputation of both
these teams, we can scarcely doubt
but that there will be a close and in
teresting game on Wednesday night.
The time of play has been placed at
8.30, so that all those attending pray
er meetings may also be able to get to
the game in time for the beginning.
The following men will play for New
Forwards-Dorcher and Cappelmnan.
Guards -Smeltzer and Mayes.
Admission will be only 25 cents.
