I ITKK 3EWBERKY.
We travelled about twenty-five miles
in a buggy through No. T township on
last Tuesday. We found the public
roads in a much better condition than j
tVimiorh far* fmm whflt I
they should be. In some places where j
they had been dragged, they were in
a much better condition than where;
the drag had not been used.
The supervisor's attention should |
be called to that stretch of road be- j
tween the residence of Mr. L. H. Senn :
and the Mudiic school house. There
is a large, deep ditch on either side of
this road, and there is scarcely room
left for one vehicle to pass without j
dropping into the ditch. If something j
is not done this road will have to be j
abandoned or a new one made in aj
very short time.
It was through the kindness and
courtesy of Mr. L. H. Senn that we |
were able to make this trip, and he
very kindly gave the whole day to us,
and we visited Chappells school,
Vaughnville school, and Mudlic school.
This section of the county has some
very fine farms in it, some of the most
fertil| 'land in Newberry county.
On Wednesday evening, we attended j
i.1. ? _ 1 ^ _ i? >r.' tv -11.* ;
Lilt? cxosing exercises oi jaiss uouie
Cleland's school at Dominick. There
was the largest crowd present that we
have ever seen at a country school,
especially -when the exercises were
held at night and the weather theatening.
The best of order prevailed,
fcowever, during the entire evening,
and great interest was manifested on
the part of the patrons, and the children
gave as creditable an exhibition,
taking it all the way through, as we

to write an account of the closing ex- j
ercises and we hope to be able to pub- j
lish it in Friday's issue.
This upper section of Newberry
needs some more white people. Those
who are there are as good as South
Carolina affords, and wp all know that !
description covers the best people, j
We need small farms owned and
worked by white people. Then we will
ihave good roads and better schools j
.and all the good things that go to I
make country life desirable.
It does not appear to us that Colonel
Green's second account is very much |
more of an itemized statement than
But for the trouble and expense, we
would be pleased to have seen a preferential
primary on the candidates
for the Democratic nomination for
the presidency, if for no other reason
than to let those of the people of
South Carolina, who are claiming such
an overwhelming sentiment for Governor
Wilson, know a few things.
While the press association is ex- .
ploiting new railroads, how would it
do to take ail excursion over the Au,
gusta and Northern? It is proposed .
to take the second trip over the C. C. 1
& 0. We suggest that arrangements!J
be made for a trip over the Augusta
and Northern, a new railroad which .
has recently been opened through a ,
very fertile section. We are satisfied j
that many of the editors have never ]
had the pleasure of traveling over it.

We are holding his name in reserve ^

\ine Spartanburg Herald says that j
"Lowndes J. Browning does not go to i
I the national convention as a delegate

of the real fighting men on the Jones

ja very strong political constitution if
he is able just now to do much fighting

<s> THE IDLER. <S>j
<S> <$> :
It has been so long since I have
written anything that I have almost!
forgotte-n the art of writing, but I \
have concluded that I would try my
hand once more. Maybe. I have been
forgotten. In this day of mad and
insane rush it does not take long to
be numbered among the things that
were, and to oass out of memory. It
is a sad thing to contemplate the fac+
that you are soon forgotten. Had you
ever thought of it. Well- after all, I
I reckon it .does not make much difference
to us whether we are remembered
after we are gone or not.
There has been so much politics
and so much about disaster on land \
and sea that I reckon the reader has
not cared for what I might say any
way. I want to advise the people?you i
know, I do not charge for my advice,
though I am satisfied it would pay you
to take it even if in broken doses?!
but I want to advise you that it will i
not pay you to worry too much about |
politics. The politician will soon for- j
get you, and if he does not the papers
will harp about his standing to his
friends and all that sort of thing?
that is, if they happen to be against'
him. Well, I like to see a man stand ;
to his friends. If I had any I think I;
would stand to them. I don't know j
how else I would expect to retain
them. And I think it is a mignty sorry ,
man who will not stand to his friends, j
I have seen some who would drop you ;
as soon as they could not use you any j
longer, and I have seen them drop out
of the limelight mighty hard, too, and
they ought to. Bnt really I want to
write about something eTse.
I walked down street the other day
ind my, how they are putting down
jricK pcLve.xitiiiu i was wuuueriiig wu^ |
irangements are not made to have the I
whole of the public square paved j
while at it, and cut off that little park :
in front of the old court house and j
make one in the rear of the building, j
and i: would not cost very much to
put it down and while we are at it. j
What an improvement it would be, and |
the little parks that could be made in j'
this way would add so much to the j.
yeauty and attractiveness of the city, j
md then it would save cost in paving, j
ro run this street through and leave I
ill this vacant ground has the appear-!
ance that we are trying to do some-1
:hing and couldn't.
While I Tvas wondering about these
things my eye happened to catch a
glimpse of the Confederate monument.
I wish you would look at it the next
time you pass that way. Seems to me
tha I read in he papers that there
was a cleaning up day advertised in
the newspapers the other day. Was
it the 15th? Well, this day I looked at
:he monument was after the loth and
: had in')r b<. :i cleaned up. 1 suppose
the monument was decorated on Memorial
day, bux it must have been
decorated with some peculiar flowers,
ir' it should be left in this condition.

ory after Memorial day, for it is a
! sight. Well, yo:i just go and take a
look for your. It is ;i sin and a
crying shaau . ; U-i thai moih.fi;? nr.

dav, and ! iec-kon it is wrong,
but?well, I wa.it to see that monu
! ment cleaned off mid if it is not done
I I will have SGine one do it myself,
i You know there is one follow who
shouts and another who fights. One
who says go ii boys, and another who
leads and says come on boys. There
is the hero of peace who never smelt
powder and the hero of war, who bared
his breast to the foe. You know
what 1 mean. But if there is a civic
association or a cleaning up commit
tee, I beg you in the name oi all tnat
is right and just and honorable, and
in the remembrance of the men whose
names are on that monument, have it
cleaned and do not decorate with any
thing tnat win leave u in lis present
condition. Don't take my word, but
go and see for yourself.
Talking about monuments reminds
me that I walked down to the old
graveyard the other day. I expect
there are people in Newberry who
don't know where it is or what I am
talking about. Who was that who
wrote once something about a people
without ruins is a people without
memories, and a people without memories
is a people without liberty. You
get the idea I hope. This old grave
yard I reckon belongs to tne town, in
its present condition I reckon the
town would disown ownership. If the
town has any slf-respect I know it
would disown it, but the town does
own it, and it should have attention.
I mean the graveyard and I reckon
the town too. There are a number
of old tombs there and on the markers
are names that are no longer
heard in Newberry county. The place
is a wilderness and should be cleaned j
off and kept in respectable condition, j
There are magnificent old oaks and!
hickories here and the good name of i
the town demands that the place be
given attention. These old trees are |
locking down on you from the bygone j
days and weeping over your j
neglect. Remember, a people
without mmories is a people without
liberty. How can you keep those |
memories fresh if you neglect such
sacred spots as this one. I noticed
that one square had been cleaned,:
which T suppose is done once a year, j
and the trash and shrubbery which
came from it were piled on some other!
lots, and it only made the whole place :
look worse than if this cleaning had
not been done. I wish I could com
man a worus strung euuugii lu wane
up the sleeping sentiment of our people
to the importance of this work,
and to make them see and realiz?
that their good name and their very
liberty was involved, because I believe
they have really forgotten that
memories cling around this sacred;
spot. Memories that should be dear to!
every citizen of Newberry.
There is much more that I want to1
say and that T am going to say, but I j
will have to stop for this time. Clean- j
ing up day. Was it observed. Maybe j
so, but I have seen mighty little evidence.
Look around you and teil me
if I am mistaken. No good to wear
badges. What you want to do is to do
things. That's it.
Sir Thomas Lipton relates the following
experience of his own:
"When I was starting in business t
was very poor and needed every penny
I could earn to enlarge my little busi-1
ness. I had a lad of fourteen as as- j
sistant. One Monday morning the
boy came in with a very mournful ex- |
pression. I asked him what the trou- ;
ble was, and he said:
" 'I have not clothes fit to wear to
church, sir. I can't get a new suit, because
my father is dead and I have to,
help my mother pay the rent.'
"I thought it over and finally took j
enough money from my hard-earned j
savings to buy the lad a good, warm i
suit of clothes, with which he was de-!
"The next day he did not come to j
work, nor the next; and when three
days had gone by and I had heard
nothing from him, T went to his home;
to find out what had become of him.
" 'Well, you see, sir.' said the mother
of the boy, 'Robert looks so respec
table in nis new suit, tnanKs 10 you, j
sir, that we thought he had better
look around town and see if he couldn't
get a better job.' "?Everybody's

not be permitted to play, they returned

j their criticisms of Mr. Johnson. They1:

Little Else Discussed Beside Suspension
of Ty Cobb.
j Washington, May 13.?Little else
was discussed' around the capitol to
day, but the suspension of Ty Cobb
of the Detroit baseball club for his
mixup with a spectator in New York
a day or two ago. Grave senators
and house members lost interest in the
question of whether or not tolls should
be charged for ships using the Panama
canal, the effect of the Bristow
amendment to the popular election of
senators, tariff schedules and other
matters that ordinarily absorb the
minds of the naticnal lawmakers. It
was all Ty Cobb. There was nothing
else to it. Many members of both
houses left their places and went to <
the American league park, where they
might discuss the most interesting
question, which has ever arisen in organized
baseball with their neighbors, i
The Georgia delegation in congress,
including both Senators Hoke Smith
and Augustus 0. Bacon, wired their
confidence to Cobb and assured him
that-they not- only believed him justified
in chastising the man said to
have been guilty of applying a vile
epithet to liim, but commended his j
stand and pledged their loyal support.
If Cobb comes to Washington with
the Detroit team next Tuesday, when
that club is due here, he will probably
receive the biggest ovation ever given
a ball player in Washington.
