The betterment of sanitary conditions
in Newberry is a matter which
vitally affects every man, woman and
child in the city. Every property
holder and every citizen ought to lend
their aid to the efforts being made by
the chamber of commerce, the civic
association and the board of health,
looking towards an absolutely clean
THE BOYS' CORN CLUB.
The teaching of the farmer boys of
the South in the growing of corn is an
important work for this section. Newberry
county has a fine boys' corn
blub, and the club has the encouragement
of the business men of Newberry.
This is well for the county.
The boys will meet in the court
house this morning at 10 o'clock, and
they will be addressed at that time by
speakers prominent in the work.
Five counties instructed their delegates
to the State convention for
Woodrow Wilson, and six counties endorsed
him, and in another county
laudatory resolutions 01 umi wore
passed. Underwood is growing
stronger every day in South Carolina,
and will show considerable -strength
in the convention. Wilson has less
than fifty delegates instructed for
him, out of a total of 336.

FOR THE COLLEGE ENDOWMENT.
Says the Greenwood Daily Journal:
"'A Crisis in Our College.' There is
the capition of an editorial in the Newberry
Herald and News in which the j
people of Newberry are called upon |
to make subscriptions to the college in
order that it may obtain a gift of $25,000
from Mr. Carnegie.
"Jtiere is tne most earnest uupe wish,
the people of Newberry will relieve
the college at once, and secure Mr.
The movement to secure this endowment
is being watched throughout
Its success means a great deal to
the college, and it means a great deal
to the city and county of Xewberry.
SOUTH CAROLINA AND THE PRESIDENCY.
Some time back it appeared that
"Woodrow Wilson would sweep South
Carolina, and that this State would

structed to support tie wanderer to the
last ditch. Happily conditions have
changed, and by the time the State
convention meets in Columbia on May
15, we believe the people of South
Carolina, represented by their delegates
in the State convention, will
have come to the conclusion that Wilson
is not the one and only man in the
nation around whose banner tne jjemocrats
may wage a successful campaign
?that, in fact, the nation would have
lived had he continued to teach thie
doctrines which he has now renounced
in the days of his political wanderings
and vaporings?and that South Carolina
will send to Baltimore a delegation
instructed only to do what is, to
their minds at that time, best for the
interests of the party.

Underwood as the standard bearer of
.the party. For a number of reasons
we regard Wilson as a dangerous leader.
But we wan t to see the party win,
and we want to 6ee the man put up
who, at the time the Baltimore convention
meets, has the best chance of
Underwood sentiment is growing in
South Carolina. This is because he is
now better known to the people of the
State, through the newspapers, and
his fitness fcr the high office to which
Tip asnires is more fully appreciated.
He is a conspicuously able Democrat,
and the leader of the Democratic
forces in the lower branch of congress;
he is recognized as the leader
i of his party on the tariff revision, the
issue upon which the Democrats must
win this year, if they win at all, and
he has the confidence of the country.

urged that a Southern man can not
win. We believe that the right kind
of Southern man can win. Samuel G.
Blythe, who has been writing a series
of political articles for the Saturday
Evening Post, one of the soundest
publications in this country, says that
' the feeling that a Southern man can
| not win because he is a Southern man
: is confined almost entirely to the
| South, and in his opinion the fact that
j a man is from the South will not be
, against him in the country at large.
I But we do not want to see our deleI

or Wilson or any one else,
j As the Charlotte Observer forcibly
'puts it: "Why send a delegation to
j the national convention at all, if it is
to be bound by the instructions of the

<S> MEMORIAL DAT. <s>
<? (By J. K. A.) <S>
Newberry's survivors of the War Between
ithe States will live over again
today in reminiscence the four years
of terrible carnage when they battled
for Southern independence; floating
across half a hundred years will come
to their ears faint echoes of the "Rebel
I Yell;" again they will
I. .hear the distant thunder hum,
The old line bugle, fife and drum."
This is the anniversary of the death
of Stonewall Jackson, and it has been
set apart in South Carolina and other
States as the day upon which
fitting tribute shall be paid to the
memory of those who gave their lives
on the field of battle, fighting under
the Starry Cross, and to the memory
of their comrades who have since answered
the final roll call; and fitting
!honor Daid to those who linger with us
! yet a little while.
It was in the month of sunshine and
of flowers that the spirit of the im(moral
Jackson, to use his last words,
crossed over the river to rest under
the shade of the trees. That was a
nf snrnassiner sorrow for the
i South; in agony of spirit a nation that
i day mourned.
j "It was sunny weather," says Miss
Mary Johnston, in "The Long Roll,"
! "fair and sweet with all the bloom of
j May, the bright trees waving, the long
! grass rippling, waters flowing, the sky
azure, 'bees about the flowers, the
birds singing piercingly sweet, mother

But, "The bells tolled, the bells tolled
in Richmond, tolled from each of
her seven hills! Sombre was the
sound of the minute guns, shaking t'he
heart of the city! Oh, this capital
j knew the Dead March in Saul as a
: child knows his lullaDyl Toaay it naa
j a depth and a height and was a dirge
indeed. Today it wailed for a Chieftain,
wailed through the streets where
the rose and magnolia bloomed, wail;
ed as may have wailed the trumpets
; when Priam brought Hector home."
A half century later, the nation is in
| truth reunited, the chasm has closed
and the wounds have healed. But there
j are precious memories which are cherished,
and a priceless heritage to be
handed down /to generation after generation.
j The grey ranks are today pitifully
; thin. Steadily they are journeying
! through a valley darker than was the
Valley of the Shenandoah when the
South still made war. But beyond arc
the eternal hills, and the white tents
! are pitched upon the summits, and are
j bathed in the everlasting light
Today the Daughters of t'ie Confed
eracy and the Sons of the Confederacy
1 will proudly honor the battle-scarred
I survivors. Today itbe women of the
South will tenderly deck the graves
of their comrades with evergreens
bound with the red and white of the
nation that now is but a memory. Today
the great heart of the South will
pour forth its golden wealth of gratitude
and of love, and today the South

"THE SEA HATH SPOKEX."
Reflections Upon the Tragedy of the
The United Presbyterian.
"Thy way was in the sea, and thy
paths in the great waters, and thy
footsteps were not known." The world
as aghast at the tragedy of the sea, j
the sinking of the Titanic in 3,000 fa- j
thorns to the floor of the Atlantic. With !
the flutter of flags and the waving of j
; joyous salutations, the greatest steam-|
| ship the world has ever seen, built af-!
ter the similitude of a palace, enriched |
with all that art and science could j
provide or the handicraft of man could j
furnish, steamed away seaward with |
I 2,400 souls in trust. Never did proud-;
er ship plow the crystal fathoms of the I
deep. Never had sailed on any vessel j
such abundant wealth. Here were rep- j

an<* women of every rank, of culture
and refinement, the possessors of milj
lions, men of vast achievements,
j known around the world, all happy in
heart, afloat in that gigantic sea-!
palace. A thing of destiny it seemed, |
man's highest achievement in ship
architecture, the admiration of every j
beholder, the proud boast of its build- !
ers, the miracle of the sea, it rode the
billows like a conqueror, flung the i
blue-white furrows from its prow, left
the populous and admiring world Dehind
and vanished, a trembling blur
on the horizon, its drifting pennant of
smoke its last farewell.
Away to the north, in the wild, fierce
fields of eternal ice and snow, a white
jberg broke from its fellows and kissed
by sunbeams, fanned by south winds,
wooed by gravity it drifted silently,
| bannerless, pennantless, down, down
I into the paths where great shyps float
land the commerce of continents ebbs
'and flows, and this gray thing of the

of man went down to the bottom of the

j The collision startled the world. It
i spread its deep gloom over cities far
and away below every horizon. Millions
of hearts sorrowed for the treasj
ures of life that went down to rest in

j saddened as the wireless told the awi

We are still stupefied with the disI

j At this writing the Carpathia, carryj
ing the survivors, has not reached port.
But in this ghastly crucifixion of man's
boasted achievement there is seen the
! weakness of his mightiest endeavor
! when matched with the silent forces
[of Him who walked on'the midnight
isea. In our contest with the elements
j of nature God must he taken into acI

leashes the earthquake, or calls his
I white icebergs out of the frigid north.

the Infinite can not be disregarded,

Bhould abandon the dangerous northern
route for safer ones, even though
they keep their passengers, a fewtours
more at sea. It is better to
cater to the safety of human life than [
to the whims of a few who are anxious
for a speedy voyage.
And, possibly, never on any battle
field was greater heroism ever shown
than on the decks of this sinking ship,
when men of millions and half-clad
stokers, the heirs of untold treasures
and the lowly laborers stood back, and I
in glorious self-sacrifice, said farewell |
to wives and sweethearts, little chil-1
dren and serving maids, and those of |
whom they knew nothing, and Bent j
them away in the lifeboats, never again
to look into each other's faces in this
world, while they, in the sure prospect
of death, awaited the swift coming and
inevitable moment when this triumph j
of man's handicraft, now the coffin of |
i fif.n hnmnn, hein^s. would take its I
plunge into the remorseless sea. There i
are few things in all history that af- j
feet us as this. It shows a spirit that!
can he found in no age or clime where ;
the religion of Jesus Christ is not
known. Some of those men may not
have been believers in Jesus; but it
was His religion that taught them that
Divine self-abnegation, that willing
sacrifice for others. .

SIMPLE MIXTURE HELPS
That simnle remedies are best has
again been proven. W. G. Mayes reports
that many Newberry people are
receiving QUICK benefit from simple
buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed
in Adler-i-ka, the German appendicitis
remedy. A SINGLE DOSE helps
sour stomach, gas on the stomach and
constipation INSTANTLY because this
simple mixture antisep<ticizes the digestive
organs and draws off the impurities.
