CLEAN-UP DAY MAY 15.
I Plan Agreed Upon by Committees
From Chamber of Commerce and

The civic association committee and
the committee from the chamber of I
j commerce appointed to confer as to
|a clean-up day for Newberry met with
the mayor and the chairman of the
board of health on Friday afternoon
and concluded to appoint May 15 as

from house to house by the

^condition of each of the premises in

NO COURT MAY 13.
I In View of Conditions, Newberry Bar
Takes Action Looking Toward
Calling Off Term.
At a meeting of the Newberry bar,
held on Friday afternoon, it was de- J
cided to ask that the common pleas
court scheduled for Newberry beginning
on May 13, be called off.
This action was taken for a number
of reasons. In the first place, the far-;
mers are more behind with their crops
this year than for a number of years |
previous, and there was a disinclination
to force the attendance of jurors
and witnesses at this peculiarly inisy j
season. In addition, the State Demo- j
cratic convention meets during that'
week, and there were other reasons.;
There were no cases of immediate im- I
portance, and in view of the whole situation,
the action stated was taken by i
In a civil court only the parties j
litigant are interested, and no public
business can suffer by failure to hold
a civil term of court. On the con-1
trary, the less civil court a county has,!
the better for the county, both from a
financial and other standpoints.

It is stated in another column that'
the time for the meeting of the boys of j
the corn club 011 May 10 has been
changed from 11 o'clock in the morning
to 10 o'clock, and the county superintendent
of education urges every
boy who has joined the club to be I
present promptly at 10 o'clock. This '
change was made necessary on'ac-;
count , of the change in the hour for
memorial exercises from the afternoon
County Superintendent of Education!
E. H. Aull has mailed a personal let- j
ter to each boy in the club urging him i
to be on hand at the court house
promptly at 10 o'clock.
As heretofore stated> several gentlemen
will be present to talk to the j
boys of the club, and the club will be j
formally organized. Prof. J. X. Har-|
per, director of the agricutural experiment
station at Clemson college
will be present. Mr. W. L. Eng
lisn-, state agent ior demonstration
work will also be present. Mr. C. B.
Haddon, who has charge of the boys'
corn club work in .this State, has also
accepted an invitation to meet with

gentlemen offering prizes in the boys'
corn club to meet with the boys on
| May 10.
The meeting will not last over an
hour and a half, and the county sup[
lntendent of education is very anxious
that every boy v^ho has joined will
show his interest by being on hand
promptly at 10 o'clock May 10.
The county superintendent of educaj
tion states that he is very much gratij
fied with the voluntary and hearty rei
sponse of the business men of Newberry
and Prosperity in the matter
of offering prizes in the boys' corn
, club. The list is published for the information
of the boys as well as for
the information of the public. The
i * _
j prizes are not large, Dut me supenn|
te^dent of education is gratified with
the heartiness ami good spirit in which
| they have been offered, and he hopes
that the boys will appreciate the in!
te- ist which is being taken in them to
make an honest effort to have the
| Xewberry club the best in the State.
It will be recalled that Mr. John M.
Kinard, president of the Commercial
bank, has already contributed to each
; boy a sufficient amount of corn to plant
his acre. This is specially selected
' seed, and it gives to each boy the same
opportunity so far as seed is concerned.
In addition to this, it will be re|
membered that the chamber of commerce
of Xewberry offers a prize of
$100 to any boy who will ttke a prize
at the National Corn show to be held
in Columbia in^ January, 1913.
It will be seen that everything to
make the boys' corn club a success is
squarely up to the boys, and the county
superintendent says that he is very
anxious to have the boys make good.
The following is the list of prizes in
addition to those above:

His a Life of Service.
Rev. Jas. D. Kinard, pastor of the!

South Carolina for th? past two years,
has received and accepted a unanimous
call to become pastor of the Immanuel
Evangelical Lutheran church,

pastoral charge June 15, 1912.
Rev. Mr. Kinard has been engaged
in the active work of the gospel ministry
in the Lutheran Synod of South
Carolina since his ordination to the
ministry nearly seventeen years ago.
REV. JAS. D. KINARD.
His continuous residence and service
I in his home synod 'make him, one of
the best informed men of the body.
Then, too, he is a cautious, tactful .and
conservative man and member of the
synod who has filled the various offices
of trust and responsibility, having been
secretary of the body for five years
and now president of the same ecclesiastical
body, whose complete confij
dence he enjoys.
For eight years he was pastor of
the Leesville pastorate, seven years
.pastor of the St. Matthew's pastorate,
Cameron, S. C., and for two years pasi
tor of the Newberry pastorate.
i Mr. Kinard has likewise been acI
tive, devoted and loyal to ttie educational
interests of the synod. For
eight years he has been a faithful
member of the board of trustees of
Newberry college and the painstaking
secretary of the board. He is at present
the president of the Alumni association
of Newberry college, his alma
!'mater. In all these places of trust and
i responsibility he has made good, and
proven himself t<? be thoroughly
abreast of the times and a consecrated,
conscientious, modest and withal
an ever faithful preacher of the pure
gospel of God's grace in Christ Jecus.
Good things, and a nopetui ruture,
. full of good fruits, are predicted as the
result of the united efforts of pastor
and people in Imimanuel Evangelical
i Lutheran church at Greenwood.

One of the most important roads,
so far as Newberry is concerned, and
one of the worst roads in the county,
is the one leading from Newberry to
the steel bridge over Saluda river at
It is understood that Supervisor
Feagle has moved his enrire working
force on this road and is now putting
it in fine condition.
The only trouble about roads that
are worked in this way by the supervisor
is with the people along the
road. They will not follow up the
work by the supervisor which would
take very little to keep the road in
good condition. There are roads in
j\ew berry county, notably, the road
from Newberry to Whitmire, which j
was put in fine condition last summer;
by the supervisor and just a littie
work in the way of using the split j
log drag, would h&ve kept this road)
in fine condition.
