FOR THE CONVENTION
Columbia, S- C., March 4.?The exe
cutiva committee of the so-called "lily
white" wing of the Republican party .
in South Carolina, met here today and
called a Stat? convention to be held
here May 4. This means that two delegations
will go from South Carolina
to the Chicago convention, one of "lily
white" and one of "black and tan,"
each claiming to be regular. The
committee at its meeting here today
refused to commit itself to President
Taft or Colonel Roosevelt. The "black
and tan" convention on March 1 elected
delegates instructed tor Taft.
In explaining the committee's attitude,
John G. Capers, national committeeman,
declared that Colonel
Roosevelt's candidacy had so changed
the situation that he and his associates
did not think it wise to commit
themselves definitely at this time.

t5 , T
The editor has not asked me to
write anything for his quarto-centen
nial edition, but l am going 10 navej
my say anyway. My memory goes way j
back beyond twenty-five years. I can j
re-member when Sherman's army made I
its memorable march to the sea, and
I can distinctly recall standing on the
hill at my country home and witnessing
the rising columns of smoke from
the burning dwellings between home
and Columbia, marking the course of
' T hOoT*in cr fbP
tne marcn. i rejucmw* vm.v
booming of cannon at that time also. I
I remember when they used to dig up
the dirt in the meat house and put it
In a sack and drip it like -they used
to the ashes, in order to get some salt,
for the salt was out, and it is a terrible
announcement to hear that the salt
is out. I can remember, too, when
they made coffee from parched rye
and parched w-heat and corn. Those
were awful times. That's been nearly
fifty years. I can remember when
all this land out here where John Xeel
nlqntiiiff in cotton was in pine
woods. I can remember when Prosperity
was Frog Level and when John
Eirge was a big man in tl at oity. And
Lang Kibler bought cotton there. I
can remember a great manyx more
things, too, but I don't know that they
would be of great interest.
I think if this rain continues much
longer there will be no use for the
Rock Hill plan, because it will be impossible
for the farmers of this sec
tion to make a b:g crop of cotton. But
it is all for the best, and there is no
use to complain. I would like to
know what the condition of the public
roads is. I know the condition of the
streets of Xewb-erry without asking. I
suppose city council will have all the
contracts signed up for the paving by
the time the weather conditions; are
such that work can be commenced.
I see the Observer says tha: the
county is not flush with money, but it
might make a decent walk up to the
court house, and I think so, too. What
are the convicts doing this weather?
Why not buy the cement and gravel
and have them do the work? It is
needed. There are many things needed.
Wonder why Newberry didn't try to
get the Lutheran female college?
Didn't want it, I reckon. Wonder what
has become of that hospital Newberry
was going to have. Waiting like my
park, I reckon. Wonder why New-'
berry keeps waiting. Resting, I reck- J
on. It is time to wake up out of that
restful state and do something. You
know, I always like the follew who
does things. That is true of a community.
Lets do something. That's
what we are h^re for. To do things.

up. Better get out and turn up something.

To those of our fellow citizens who
only run for office when urged to do

au U11U aic uumiinn,^u vuu.. ,
I commend the following honest confession.
It is from Frank Stanton's
column in the Atlanta Constitution:
An Open Confession.
Here speaks a candid office-seeker,
in a letter to the voters:
"I've been a-livin' round here forty
year come July, an' I never even run
for office in my dreams?till now, as
I've always Den aoie to wont iur uy
livin' up to the present time; but I
can't git aroun' as lively as I used
to 'count o' the rheumatism havin'
holt o' me, likewise a sort of rattlin'
of the brain, an' a good, easy office
would enable me to pass the balance
o' my days in peace an' tolerable
plenty. That's why I'm a-wantin' one,
an' wherefore I make bold to say so.
r ain't nertickler. I'll take anything
in sight?with a livin' in it. Will my
friends an' fellow-citizens please nominate
me for somethin' or other?"
I have heard now and then of own
who were dying for office, but when
they did run it was always at the
urgent urging of numerous friends,
and that they were making great sacrifices
to serve the dear people. I de~
' ' J.V_
sire to commend to tnese tut: iuuu??lng,

A Private Ananias*
"No," said the Billviile matron to
the campaign committee, "there's no
in th*> rnnnd world o' settin'
my old man to run ag'in. Last year
ne swore on the book that he wouldn't
run ag'in if the office was lined with
gold, an' he's got to stand to his word.
I admit that he's a Aflanias at home,
but a private one. 1 C&fi't stand the
idee of makin' a public Ananias of
him at his time o' life. If he funs I
won't be ten steps behind him to
make him meet himself comin' back!"
I wish the editor and The Herald
and News many joyous returns of its
silver anniversary and this one maybe
the recipient of many silver dollars on

March 8. "Baby Mine" has to its cred- |
it one solid year's run at Daly's theatre,
New York. It has also achieved
phenomenal success at Sir Charles
Wyndham's Criterion theatre, London,
where it is now nearing its 250th performance
and will shortly be presented
in Paris, Berlin and Vienna. "Baby
Mine" holds the distinction of being
absolutely clean from start to finish,
the comedy situations being none the
less laugh provoking because of the
absence of suggestiveness. Wm. A. j

The Chinese Famine.
New York Globe.
Six hundred thousand families are
on the verge of starvation in Central
China. Many have already starved to
death. The floods of last summer destroyed
the crops over a large area.
The present political trouble in the
empire seriously hampers domestic
efforts at relief. Unless outside aid is

people, children and women will literally
die for lack of food. The victims
of the famine are chiefly hard working,
honest farmers' families.
In fact, according to the Red Cross
officials, one of the greatest famines
of modern times is impending in China.
The bare facts of the situation should"
constitute the only plea necessary to
stir the hearts and open the purses
of every one with a dollar to spare
above his own needs. A luxury or two
shaved off the annual family budget
now will save a dozen lives in China.

A woman's head is supposed to
be the seat of her intelligence, ht/
brain; and nature has, in the majority
of ca?es, made that head beautiful,
and covered it with hair, which is, as
a rule, woman's crowning glory. Why
any sane woman should want to stuff a
lot of pig's hair, frog's wool, horses'
whiskers and dead Chinamen's pigtails
on the top of her head, Heaven above?
knows, for I don't. To contemplate
a woman with her head as big as a
bushel basket at night, and then see
her crawling down to breakfast next
morning with a cranium as big as a
Boston bean, is certainly enough to
give me the palpitation of the liver
pad. A lady informs me that she has
to wear puffs because big hats are in
style. That is all rot for I know two [
or three young ladies with sense and '
Character, who have never worn
rats or puffs, and who would not, under
any circumstances put any mattresses
on their heads. These girls
have small hats, hats that are infinitely
more becoming than those enormous
contraptions that are anchored with
empty steen yard long pins, daggers,
harpoons, skewers, swords or whatever
you lige to call them to heads'upholst-ered
w,ith mountainous masses of

that she had better he dead than ia

from her bewhiskered Chinese graveyard,
and placed her hat, which was J
as big as a circus tent, with a sigh j
of satisfaction, on my loun.ee. As she j
talked the sun streamed in through the
window onto that mountain of puffs j

Another thing scientists say, that, if

This means that the false hair junk

It is all rubbish to think you will be

of weakness of character, ' and are
keeping the sex from progressing. A

f Onfrlit to Have One- "
, The hospital in Laurens has proved
a great success. Not until it was !>ut
in operation, was it realized what a
boon it was to be to the county. It
is our understanding that the institution
is self-sustaining and doing
great good. Many of our citizens, both
of the city and of the outlying districts,
who heretofore were unable to
enjoy the conveniences of hospital
treatment, now are treated at the
Laurens County Hospital and many
others, who were able to go to larger
cities, are treated at home at less expense.
We believe that if a committee
were appointed from among the
prominent citizens of Newberry to
visit Laurens Gaffney ana ureeuwuwu
hospitals they would return home with
the determination to have the hospital
at any cost.
A hospital is not going to boost the
population of Newberry nor will It
prove a great business producer, but
it is an institution that every city the
size of Laurens and Newberry should
In this connection, it might be well
to state that the hospital here has beert
generously supported by all the people,
especially the physicians, and it
is doing a splendid work.
