* Seems to m-e that I read an old
adage once which went something like
this: "Sweep before your own door."
I think I did. Any how it is a pretty
good one. Now, I was just thinking
the other dav what a ereat day it
would be for Xewberrv, in appearance,
if every one would just sweep before
his own door literally. I suppose the
adage referred to figurative sweeping.!
IThis suggestion came from walking
down street the other day and observf
in or cnmo nf rho nnved sidewalks which !
% Jiad been swept off. Wonder if we
could not induce the citizens to put
this adage into real and actual force, j
Just try it once and see how you would
be pleased with it. Walk down street j
any Sunday morning and see what a ;
dirty looking place it is, and look at
some of the sidewalks that have been
swept. How would it do for council to !
pass a mild ordinance requiring every i
property owner, alongside whose premises
there is a paved sidewalk, to
sweep said sidewalk before 9 o'clock;
F ( every morning. It would not be mucb j
of a hardship, and then we are in the |
habit now of regulating everything by j
legislation and this would be along the j
line of civic righteousness. Suppose j
you try it, and ?ee how it would oper- (1
Speaking about sweeping, that is a!
faithful sweeper who wields the broom ,
L *. on tlie paved street in front of the j
ft Newberry hotel, and when he gets out
there on a balmy afternoon, when the <
% ladies and others are promenading in
> their evening dress, and raises a cloud
of dust and germs it certainly should
be conducive to comfort and health.
I noticed only the other afternoon that
a beautiful?that is my favorite word,:.
and I hope you will pardon i^s use in
this connection?a beautiful cloud of
irdust arose and wended its way to the i.
sidewaJk just as a bevy of beautiful i
young girls dressed in white were!
, passing, i am sure u was r-ires nng!
as it?the dust?and germs?fouT:d its
?there now I am mixed again?well, i
the dust and the germs found their
way on the white muslins and into the
nostrils of the pedestrians. I am j
afraid I got my metophor mixed, as;
I am not much on metaphors?I think
that's the word. Well you know whatj
I am talking about?that dust and; _
germs and filth that is swept up into
your very face. And he wields that
brush regardless. Wonder if there is
eo modern?I mean more modern? i
way of cleaning the street. I reckon
when we get all that other paving
'tnat is to come soon we will nave more
general distribution of the dust and
germs and they will not be swept into
the nostrils of pedestrians. I am not
criticizing the sweeper, because if he ,
swept only when there was no one (
passing he would not sweep at ail. j.
But it is awful, especiallv when the
wind is blowing. i,
* By the way, I passed down by the <
^ Crotwell hotel the other day and I 1
noticed that Mr. Crotwell had some

ViUOO'Uai 5 Up *11 n vxit WJL iiiUi uv.auu ; '
ful and watery driveway alongside his
hotel. I guess he must have seen what
I said, and is going to do something.
I can't imagine just what, but I am
going to wait and see. I like people
who do things and who kr^ow how. I
don't see why the wagons and buggies
don't just drive out over the beautiful
lawn of the court house square. There
is plenty of room and they have been
* doing it heretofore. And that cement
walk up to the court house has not
been built yet I reckon the county

000. And then those- beautiful piles of
Ted clay left alongside the beautiful
oaks which have been planted 011 the
square, why they are things of beauty
sure enough and will add to the general
appearance of the green lawn when
the burned grass begins to bud with
the coming of spring.
v My, didn't it get hot all of a sudden. 1
Just like a storm from a cloudless sky
?that's good, isn't it? Well, it did 1
com<e all at once. T guess it is all s
right. I am trying to believe that 5
whatever is is for the best. It is such ; *
a comfortable feeling. That is, if you j i
Ih&ve done your duty faithfully. j
I like sometimes to read good poetry,!1
; don't you? That is when the senti- c
? i c
' ment is right. I don't like slush?I:
think that is a good English word and
is expressive of what I mean. If it is :
not I will ask Dr. Setzler about it?I
read a few lines the other day headed, i
"Io Victis," and while 1 don't know
what that means yet 1 want to tell t
von that the fellow who wrote these 1.
lines expresses my sentiments a lot *
better than I can myself and 1 want 11
^*ou to read them. Who are th-f- real a
victors? That is the question. Read : I
these lines. It will do you good:
I sing the hymn of the conquered, who
fell in the battle of life?
The hymn of the wounded, the beaten,
whn Hi'prt nvfvrwhplmprl in thf>
Not the jubilant song of the victors,
for whom the resounding acclaim
Of nations was lifted in chorus, whose
brows wore the chaplet of fame;

Who strove and "who failed, acting
bravely a silent and desperate
Whose youth bore no flower on its
branches, whose hopes burned
in ashes away,

at the dying of day
With the wreck of their life all around
them, unpitied, unh-eeded, alone,
With death swooping down o'er their
failure, and all but their faith
