THE OBSERVER A>D THE CHAUTAUQUA
In a reply, published in another,
column, to the letter of the editor of j
The Herald and News, the Observer j
goes into a history of its trade and industrial
edition, refers to the trade and
industrial edition of The Herald and j
News this year, and expresses its continned
conviction that the little para- j
graph in The Herald and News in re- j
gard to the Chautauqua booklet was a
slur at the Observer.
We regret that the Chautauqua has
been brought into a controversy between
the two newspapers of Newberry.
A controversy of this kind can do
nobody any good.
We shall have only a few more
words to say, and they shall not be
T'V.o nhwrvpr s3vs the statement of
the editor of The Herald and News
was not satisfactory, and charges that
it lacked frankness. It stated the
whole case, as the editor of The Herald
and News saw it, and if it does not
satisfy the Observer, we can not help I
it. As to the president of the Chau-j
tauqua association, who, the Observer
thinks did exactly right, we have al
^oil wa havA to sav in this
A Cauj ^ ^
connection. Different persons have
different views of what is "exactly
In 6peaking of the Observer's trade
and industrial edition of last Chautauqua
week, the Observer says that
"some person tried to make it appear
that the Observer solicited advertising
for itself under the claim that it was j
getting out some sort of advertisement j
for the Chautauqua," but ^"concluded ,
to let it pas6, because I did not wish j
to enter into a newspaper controvery."
> If by characterizing the controversy
into which he would have entered, had
lie entered a controversy, as a "newspaper"
controversy, the editor of the
Observer means to charge The Herald
and News with having inspired the report?which
we hype the editor of the
Observer does not mean?the charge;
is absolutely unfounded in fact We j
desire to state, and to state emphatically,
that any reports that may have
gained circulation in regard to the Observer's
trade edition of last Chautauqua
week, did not emanate from The
Herald and New?, and The Herald and j
News had nothing to do with them. i
As to The Herald and News edition,
it is issued today, and has no more
bearing upon a Chautauqua, either in
point of time or in any other manner, I
than has the chirping of a sparrow up- j
on a presidential election.
The editor of the Observer proceeds
to draw w*hat he calls a logical and j
inevitable inference from the little j
paragraph in The Herald and News,
to which the Observer takes exception, j
That there was no slur at the Observer,
either in intention or in fact, in
mat paragrayu, we mtru iu uia^c vicai, ,
publicly, and we have nothing to add j
to what we have already said in re- i
Says the editor of the Observer:J
"And that is his explanation. I must
say that it comes with poor grace from :
one to whom I have shown so many J
courtesies and favors."
Whatever courtesies and favors have
been shown The Herald and News or
the editor of The Herald and News,
or any member of The Herald and
News family, by the editor of the Observer,
have been appreciated to the
fullest, and sincere thanks are hereby
again and publicly extended.
We do not know whether or not The
Herald and News has ever been able
to extend to the Observer what the Observer
would call courtesies or favors;
certainly if it has, they have been extended
willingly and gladly; but The
Herald and News has not sought to
keep a record of them, and would not
seek to call them to mind or to charge
them up in the columns of The Herald
FOR A HOSPITAL. ji
The chamber of commerce has actively
and heartily joined with the i *
physicians of Newberry in a definite ; <
plan for the building of a hospital, and <
the prospects for success are very en- <
couraging. Newberry ought to have a
Vi + 1 otjcilv Vlflvo r>DP (
uun, aiiu v-o-ii T OJ j ^ ? ,
and we hope to see the people of the
city and the county all lend their aid j *
and 6iipport and build it.
The matter has been agitated by the i
chamber of commerce for some time, |
but no definite action had been taken. ;1
The physicians have been working j
quietly but steadily, and have already j ^
brought about gratifying results, the ,
report showing that they already have i
more than $4,000 pledged. This is a !
handsome necleus around which to j i
gather the remainder of the $15,000 in j j
subscriptions which it is proposed to j
The movement is one that should ap- J \
peal to everybody in the county. It j
may not pay any money dividends, but
that is not the purpose of the enter- <
prise. It is an investment which will (
pay dividends of incalculaby more 1
value than money. It will pay divi- s
TKrhfoh wn not; hp reckoned in i(
UV/UUO ?' ? ^
dollars and cents, and it will be an as- <
set to the community which can hard- ly
be overestimated. *
There is no need to urge the bene- c
fits of a hospital. All of us realize j
them. What the entire community |
wants to do now is to lend its support
and help build one.
Mr. I. H. Hunt, the chairman of the
committee appointed from the chamf
ber of commerce to confer with the !
physicians' committee, very strongly;
urged the necessity for a hospital in
his annual report as president of the (
chamber of commerce, in March, 1911.
In that connection, ho said, among ^
other things: t
"The establishment of a hospital in >
Newberry town and county has been i
discussed to some extent by the peo- j
pie of the community and advocated c
in public print. This is one of the -s
most important and far-reaching prop- \
ositions that demand the attention of I
our organization. From a purely com- i
on/i elfish vtewnoint such an r
ViUi ? ..
institution is an index of a growing, Jt
prosperous, and liberal-minded com- \
munity and will add to the many ad- t
vantages that New-berry now has to 1
offer the home-seeker. s
"The business side of this proposi- s
tion is the least important and should !
be given serious consideration only jA
so far as it is necessary to raise funds 1
to establish and maintain the institu- c
tion. The reward of such an invest- ^
ment will not be one of financial gain, : *
but will be seen and felt in the pro- i1
longing of iife, the restoration of |
health and the happiness of those of j '
our people upon whose bodies the j
hand of affliction has ben laid. A hospital
established in the city of Newberry
will save the lives of many people
who require medical assistance ^
that can only be given them in a well- g
equipped institution of this kind. The j t
physicians of Newberry are men of j I
science and skill and rank high in j1
their profession. They are able and
capable and will fight to the last
breath, but with all that there are cer- I,
tain cases, and many cases, in which j t
delicate surgical operations are to be ! t
performed and watchful nursing re- 1
quired that leave them helpless with

established hospital and the trained 1
nursing that is required after an operation.
The men of Newberry county
should remember the women and chil- |
dren and pay this small tribute to 1
those who are not responsible for their :
affliction and not able to help them- j
selves. There are cases where hospi- !
tal service is absolutely necessary and <]
where the people are not financially
able to bear the heavy expenses of go- 1
inig to Columbia, Philadelphia or New
York or any other place away from
home. There are other cases "Nvhere s
families "have burdened themselves 1
with debt that their sick might receive

affords. The expense of city hospital
service away from home is ex- 1
cessive and in many cases pro- *
hibitive. A hospital right here at c
home would bring the expense of such *
service to the minimum and place it
ivithin reach of all who need its help. Another
great advantage would be in
hat Newberry would have the service
)f trained nurses who could answer
emergency calls at all hours of the |
lay and night."
That is a very strong presentation |
Df a very vital matter.

The Maid's Mistake.
In the employ of a certain Southern
school for gfirls is a colored maid, who
from her queer mumbling speech and
habitual grin is known by the girls as
Crazy Mary. Into the reception room
of this college one busy school day a
business-like publisher stepped. Handing
the maid his card, he informed her
that he would like to speak with Miss
Harrington, the editor of the school
magazine,. on some "important business."
The maid duly impressed, took the
card and went in search of the young
lady. Failing to find Miss Harrington
in the halls, however, she proceeded
to the young ladies' sleeping apartments.
As she neared the room of
the young lady in question, Miss
Brock, her roommate, stepped out,
closing the door behind her.
With her most ingratiating manner
and haui^al grin, Crazy Mary approached
and in her slow, halting
speech, said to Miss Brock: "C'ud?
