Why throw a banana peel on the!
Still a good time to use the split log
drag. Always a. good time to use it.:
Why not enforce the law prohibiting j
the sale of cigarettes to minors?
Onlv ten davs until Christmas. We i
hope the city authorities will see that j
we have a sane observance of the day;
in Newberry. '
A stenographic report of Gov. j
Blease's much talked of Richmond j
speech is printed in this issue of The j
Herald and News. Rrad it and see for
yourself what he did say.
One-half of one mill tax levied forI
the purpose of continuing work on the j
new hospital for the insane will give i
as much money as should be expend- i
e-d by the State each year for tftis purpose.
It would be as much as could
be wisely, economically and judiciously
spent. It might be just as well r
to levy the tax each year to continue j
the work as to have voted the bond j
issue. Provision could be made to sell I
the present property gradually as the j
price would warrant and the conditions
were favorable for a sale of the prop
A report was sent out from Wash- :
ington to the effect that Gov. Blease's!
friends tried to secure for him an in-1
vitation to the dinner of the Gridiron j
club and that the president of the club, j
backed by the advisory committee, re- j
fused to allow the invitation. Thej
Washington correspondent of the News ,
and Courier quotes the president of
the Gridiron club as saying that if,
there was any application in Denan 01
Gov. Blease he never heard of it.--'
And as we understand it the president
of the club did really meet Go\r.!
Blease and personally invite hiru to
We understand that Gov. Blease is
going to recommend to the legislature;
the levy of one mill tax for the aid ;
of the common schools of the State, i
- J ?: i ~ i
me money tu ue uenveu u um iur j
levy to be expended under the direction
of the State board of education.!
No better investment could be made j
and the legislature should readily put
on +he levy. As a matter of fact uni
less something is done the aid to high
schools, the building aid fund, the:
term extension fund, and, in fact, all j
State aid will have to stop. The aid

fund, which is now exhausted. A !
one-mill levy used exclusively in aid
of the common schools would do a
vast deal of good.
The text of Governor Blease's Rich-!
mona speech did not become available
to the Enquirer until this morning at
an hour too late to permit of irs reDroduction
in full in today's nauor.
The version given out by the governor, j
which is the version taken down !
cially at the convention is very different
from that on which many news-;
paper comments have been based. The
stenographic report of the speech will
be published in the next issue of the j
All of which is very true. It fre- j
quently happens that a part of the j
truth is the meanest and most detri- j
mental falsehood. There is a lot of
difference in the meaning of what Gov.
Blease said and what the newspapers
condemn him of saying.
Modesty of a Hero.
A French reporter encountered in a
little village of the South of France a
gardener who wore, pinned on his j
clean Sunday blouse, the ribbon of the i
Legion of Honour, says Tit-Bits.
Naturally the newspaper man desired
to know how he got it. The gardener
who, like many of his trade, seemed
to be a silent man, was averse to meeting
an old and wearisome demand, but
finally he began:
"Oh. 1 don't know how I did get it!
I w; s at BazeiHes with rlie rest of 111?
battery. All the officers were kill d. !
then down went all the non-commissioned
officers. Bang! bang !bang! By- I
and-by all the soldiers were down but '
me. I had *ir<ri the last shot and;
raturaJly was doing what I could to J
keep off the Bavarians.
"Well, a general came, and says he. j
'Where's your officers?'
" 'All down,' says I."
"Where's your gunners?' says he. I
" All down but me,' says I.
" 'And you've been fighting here all
alone?' says he.
" ' 1 couldn't let 'em come and get I
the guns, could 1?' 1 says; and then j
he up and put this ribbon on me, probably
because there was nobody else
there to put it on."
The Dreadful Bishop.
Col. Robert M. Thompson at an open |
air luncheon in Hot Springs, told a i
story about a bishop.
"The bishop," he said, "was the vie- j
tim, one November, of a queer news- j
paper error. The error lay in mixing
up a story about a college boy's
Thanksgiving with a story about the
Bishop's Thanksgiving. The article
" 'Bishop Blank \vas visited on
1 nailKSgiving uay uy <x uuinmiutc ci
capitalists, who presented him with a
well filled purse. The venerable bishop,
after thanking the committee
warmly, boarded a taxicab with a bottle
of champagne under each arm. He
refused, two hours later, to pay the
chauffeur's bill of $16, knocked the
chauffeur down, and in the confusion
escaped into a Bowery saloon. He was
next seen at the. "Gay Widows," a
Bowery burlesque, where, from a stage
box, he amused himself by tossing
hanHsfnlc of roin on to the staee. A
gratuitous assault on the leading man
led to his arrest.' "
Ah Aid to Memory.
J. M. Caldwell, in "Old Irish Life,*'
tells a story of a young peasant woman
Sally Sweeny, who used to walk into
Gcilway twice a week to do shopping
for her family when they lived in the
country, says the Detroit Free Press.
She could neither read nor write, yet
she never made a mistake w:th any of j
the messages that were intr. .ed V j
her. Once, however, her memory did
fail her. One of the ladies of the family
had ordered her to bring back a
yard of some color of satin, and the
unaccustomed word slipped out of
Sally's- recollection. But she did not
allow herself beaten without an effort
to recall the word, so she went
into the principal shop in Galway still
"What is't that, ye call the divil,"
she asked, "whin it's not divil that ye j
say to him?"
"Is it Satan you would be meaning?"
asked the astonished draper.
"The very wan," said sally dengntedly.
"An' ye'll give me a yard."
He Had It
"Of course, vou know the story cf
the hare and the tortoise?"
"Yes," replied Uncle Raspberry; "I
know de the story. But I never could
exackly see de moral. De turtle
couldn't o' beat dat rabbit 110 way
'csppen' by accident. I specks mebbe
de moral is dat it ain' never safe to
bet on no kind of a hoss race."?
