TO AID THE STARVING.
The Herald and News publishes to
day the proclamation of President
Taft, who is president of the Ameri
can Red Cross, calling upon the Amer
ican people for aid to relieve the dis
tress of the starving Chinese. This
is an appeal which will no doubt be
heeded by the people of this country
as it ought to be. There are very few
-who are not able to give a little some
thing to aid in the work of providing
sucdor for those who are starving to
death-starving for the lack of food.
We do not care to let any issue of
The Hera'd and News go out in the
county at this time without urging the
use of the split log drag. We are 'I
pleased to know that in a good many
sections of the county the farmers
have realized the advantage of the
split log drag, and as a -result, the th
roads have been greatly improved.
We were surprised in coming up on
the train Thursday morning to note fo
that the. road between Newberry and of
Prosperity had not been dragged on
the Prosperity end. We felt that our to
friends at Prosperity were deeply in
terested in the improvement of the
Toads leading into their progressive
and wide-awake city. J
We hope that the people of New
berry county will encourage the boys'
corn club and offer a number of prizes
so as to stimulate the boys of New- G
berry county to take a prize at the da
national corn show. W
We -would be pleased to have Mr.
John B. Mayes, president of the chain-C
ber of commerce, take up the matter
and get a committee appointed to look thi
after the raising of a sufficient fund Cc
to offer these prizes. Fl
It requires some systematic work in
order to accomplish results and we R
are satisfied that 'the chamnber of com- j0
merce will look after the raising of ta:
money for the prizes and it can
be easily secured, and there is no bet- t
ter work to engage the chamber of
commerce than to encourage the boys S
of Newberry county in growing corn, be
The 7th of the approaching March da
will close twenty-five years of con
nection continuously and consecutively
of the editor of The Herald and News
with the paper as a part owner and C.
editor. On the seventh of March, S.
1887, William P. Houseal and E. H.
Aull bought the printing plant of The'f
Herald and News from Mr. A. C. Jones,
and formed a partnership under the w
firm name of Aull & Houseal, as pub
lishers and printers. The connection m
of the present editor with the paperH
has continued consecutively since that
date. He 'was editor of the paper et
prior under the ownership of Mr. b
Jones, who acquired the paper from
Mr. T. F. Greneker. Li
It is the purpose of the present
owners to issue a quarter-centennial
edition in connection with its regular
issue on Friday, March 8. We hope
to have a short communication, if only
a few lines, from everyone who has
been in any way connected with the
editorial, mechanical, or business part
of the publication during these twerp
ty-fiv-e years. We are going to make a
personal request for such articles
from as many as we can, but this
statement is made to ask that it be
considered a personal request forI
those who have 'been in any way con
nected with the paper to furnish such
an article. This article we would be
pleased to have in hand early during
this month so that we may not be
rushed in getting out this special edi
tion. It is proposed to carry in this
edition cuts of as many who have
be-en connected with the paper as we
can handle. We want to make this
an interesting and historical issue
and h-pe that those who have labored
