THE NEWBERRY HOTEL.
C. P. Pelhani, Manager.
It is a fact universally recognized
and admitted that first-class hotel *ac-'
commodations exercise a powerful influence
constantly in the direction of
the development of the community in I
which they flourish and tor that rea- ;
son they are placed anions the munici- j
pal advantages and features of a city j
or town. In the case of the Newberry
hotel, under the experienced and efficient
management of Mr. C. P. Pelham,
the truth of the foregoing statement
has been effectively substantiated, for
its service has placed Newberry among
the strictly first-class hotel towns of
South Carolina, and for that matter of
the entire South. The Newberry hotel
Has been m operation many years
and about three years ago was remodeled
and enlarged by its owners, who
were prompted by motives of purely
public spirit, rather than by any consideration
of profit, to invest their
money in an enterprise which was so
^essential to the welfare of the town
and whose presence and operations
would directly and indirectly foster
and promote conditions that would be
an incentive to progress. Accordingly
the plans, interior appointments and
Arrangements provide for every influence,
condition and environment that
"would insure the maximum of convenience
and the resources of men experienced
in hotel construction were
drawn upon to-secure this encl. With
the completion of the structure, which
contains thirty-six guest rooms, it was
opened for the reception of the traveling
public under Mr. C. P. Pelham, and
by his efforts it was rapidly built up
that nos'it.inn it has since enioved I
of being one of the best conducted hotels
in the South. The Newberry hotel
is thoroughly modern in every respect,
^id when the words "thoroughly
modern" are used in this instance
they mean all the conveniences that
the skill and experience of the architect,
builder, electrician, decorator
and house furnisher can suggest or
procure that will promote comfort
and convenience. Then again the dining
room and office service reflect the
ihighest ideals of the management to
provide generously for the wishes of
patrons along lines that reflect and appreciate
refining influences and a
nice sense of discrimination. The hotel
is conveniently situated in the heart
of the town and porters meet passengers
at all trains. Mr. Pelham, while
a young .man, has made good in the
hotel business and has been identified
with every movement looking to the
upbuilding of Newberry, for he is one
of that group of men who do things.

At the establishment conducted by

so that for business or
pleasure the facilities are such as anticipate
all ordinary demands. Mr.
Brown gives special attention to
the needs of the local public for livery
service, and, because of the
promptness and reliability of the service
rendered, quite a number regularly
give these stables their consta/nt

the road. The greatest business of
the establishment, however, is in the ;
sale of horses and mules, the business 1
in this line reaching large figures, for;
Mr. Brown buys stock from the lead-j
ing markets, and conducts a sale in a j
way to win the confidence of the pur-1
chaser, for he never fails to point out j
tlfe defects as well as the good quali- 1
ties in the animal. In this way he has:
built up a reputation which stands the
test of time, for he and his father, the
late A. T. Brown, his predecessor in J
the business, have been selling horses
on this market for 18 years, and unless
his methods were honorable in every
way he could not have survived long
In his stab'.o& he has accommodations
for many head of stock a; a always has
a large number on hand f om wire*: to !
mak-e a s-Voiion. Mr. Brown sells
several carloads 01 horses and mules j
annual1/* and has accommodations in \
his stables for nearly one hundred an:
mals. Guy Brown was practically rais-!
ed in the horse business, haviug suc-i
ceeded his father last September. So!
that it can truly be said that he!
"knows his book" when it comes to I
talking horse. He is thoroughly fa-;
miliar with the needs of the farmer,;

aim and desire is to maintain a service |
which is always courteous and obliging
as well as prompt and reliable.

Popular sentiment everywhere in-'
dorses pleasures and amusements that I
are health promoting in their nature, j
Hence healthy popular sentiment -indorses
the moving picture theatre un- j
der proper management, for they of-!
fer pasttimes that are clean and refin- j
ed and as a consequence flourish in j
every community. The foregoing ob-i
servation is suggested by the up-to- '
date equipment which is maintained!
in the Theato, located in the old court
house building and under the man-i
ageinent of Mr. D. R. Lavender. The,
Theato oj>ened its doors in March, j
1911, and' since that time has been a
popular resort, Mr. Lavender presents
each night a program which includesj
three reels of motion pictures, making
a bill which is not surpassed anywhere j
at the low price of admission. He conducts
his establishment along the!
most mora] lines, especially maintain- j
ing a resort for ladies and gentlemen 1
where otherwise dull moments can be i
delightfully passed away, at the pleasures
offered by the splendid features;
presented. The first year under Mr.?
Lavender's management presaged the)
most encouraging outlook for a select'
and increasing patronge. This condi-1
tion is highly creditable to the com- j
munity, for all over the country mov-j
in? picture shows thrive best amidst
refined and educational influences.
D. R. lavender is a native of Gaffney,
s. C., and came here in March of
last year to open a picture show. Since
his residence here he has taken an j
active part in every measure calculai
ed to benefit the town, always oiiermg
the facilities of his house for the bene- ;
it of church or charitable objects. It
will be his endeavor always to display j
only the very best films, catering espe-,
ciallv to ladies and children. This dis-!
position to help all worthy causes has J
been the means of packing his house j
several times each day and night in;

The business grew rapidly, necessitating
from time to time larger quarters
and increased facilities. Five years

gdrictest sense of the term a farmer's

inquires for himself and his family,

Plumbing, Tinning and Roofing?Agent, *
for the White Light Gas Generator.
In the modern building construction J
the skill of the metal worker is very |
much in evidence in roofing and spout- '
ing which secure and promote sanitary ]
conditions and in systems of lighting js
and plumbing which guarantee com-11
fort and convenience. So that this!'
work is of the greatest importance and *

In this line the established !

tracts and there is no "joo" so Dig mat;
he can not handle. Assisted by a force ;
of experienced workmen, Mr. White is
prepared to undertake all contracts
for tin roofing, down spouting and
guttering and plumbing and lighting
plants and anything else that conies:
properly within the province of the'
metal work. His skill and knowledge
enables him to follow special designsj
if so desired, so that he controls con- j
ditions to render a satisfactory ser- j
vice. He also installs complete sys-j
terns of hot-air heating, including the
best furnaces 011 the market, and does j
repair work of all kinds. Mr. White;
has recently taken the agency in New- j
berry and Saluda counties for the j
White Light Gas Generator. White j
Light is the most brilliant of ail arti- j
ficial lights and is "nearest to day-;
light" for reading, distinguishing col- j
ors, and for use where plants are being
grown. This light has been rec- !
ommended by leading oculists, as being 1
not alone the best for the eyes, but of j
more or less healthful influence, wmte
Light is produced by the burning of:
the gas generated in the white light:
generator. This gas burns with an j
intensity which gives from one bur-'
ner a stronger l:ght than four of the!
best kerosene oil lights or two electric j
lights would produce. Mr. White re
