Don't forget to use the split log drag
after this rain we have had during the
week. The roads need it before the
winter season begins in earnest.
There should be a sane observance
cf the Christinas season. We again
plead for the enforcement of the ordinance
against shooting rireworks on
the streets and in the yards of other
people as well as in your own yard.
]t is dangerous to property and life, j
An election has been oraerea iu uuv-.>
another slice of Lexington county into
Richland county. This will include
the towns of White Rock and Ballen-j
tine. The election to take a part into
Newberry county, we understand, is to
be ordered soon. If this cutting up
meane better roads between Newberry
and Columbia we hope it will continue.
The Herald and News will print only
one issue next week. We have always
taken out one issue at Christmas
since the paper has heen printed
twice a week. Ws will print the
Tuesday paper, but no Friday paper.!
If you have anything you want to ad
vertise please bear this in mind. There
will be no paper printed on next Friday.
The State board of health at its recent
meeting again condemned the
hosiery mill at the penitentiary as unsanitary
and not a proper place in
which to work convicts. Gov. Blease
very strongly intimates that if the
asain refuses to do away
with the hosiery mill that he will turn
all the convicts out of the penitentiary
that are employed in the mill. He has
repeatedly condemned the hosiery mill
as a "tuberculosis incubator" and re-commended
to the legislature its abolition.
City council of Columbia has purchased
a car that will run as a sort
of Sherlock Holmes car to test the I
speed of autoists who persist in violating
the speed ordinance. It will run the
maximum speed and any car passing
it will be known to exceed the
Mmit. It does seem a little strange|
that people who should know better j
will insist on violating the law. Bs- j
pecially this speed law in the face of
so many accidents. These accidents
are eenerallv the result of fast or care
less or reckless driving.
In this day of trust breaking and
combination, smashing it may be ini
esting to know that it is rumored
that the State administration in South
Carolina may bring action against
some of the foreign feTtiliger companies
doing business in this State for
combining against the farmers of the
State in restraint of trade, and aiso
that some measure along the same line
a 3 "? ^ laoriolofiirA
may be mtroauceu m mc
It is also rumored that bills will be
introduced in the legislature requiring
all fertilizer companies to show the
source from which the amonia used is
obtained. It is also stated these measures
will be backed by the farmers'j
We admire the way the chamber of i
commerce of Greenville has gone
about doing things. A chamber of
commerce, or for that matter any
"T>oro ni 79 tirvD IS Only

valuable when it does things. To do
things is its mission. Otherwise it
has no excuse- for existence. Nothing
personal or local in this observation.
But the Greenville chamber has employed
Mr. C. B. Haddon, State agent
of the boys1' corn club work, to become
farm demonstration agent for Greenville
county an expert, who shall devote
ganized plan of the chamber of commerce,
to put in the field in Greenville
county an exjert, who shal' devote
his entire tirn^ to the development of
Mr. Haddun will be an information bu- 1
reau for the farmers of the county,1,
will help the school boys, and the
school ^irls in their corn club and | :
romato club work. In fact, it is diffi?!
cult to tell how far reaching in the de
vetopment of the rural districts this j
movement will prove. This is what j
we call doing things.
By putting up only a part of the.
money for this work Greenville gets!
outside help, because there are al- j
ways people who are willing to help j
people who are doing things.
By pledging a fund of $1,000 a year |
for two years, to he devoted to de-!
velopment agricultural interests in |
Greenville county, the chamber of i
commerce has a guarantee of $1,000 aj
year, for two years, from the Nation-j
al association of grain exchanges, of j
Chicago. This fund of $2,000 i- to be
further suppleinnted by the contributions
from the farm extension depart- j
nf rinmcnn ^nllpjxp and the de- i ,
partment of agriculture of the United ,
There is no better section 1:1 Scuth j
Carolina for carrying on work of this
character than Newberry county. Peo- i
pie who do things have got to wake up.
By a little concert of action and cooperation
it would be easy to raue $1,000
for work of this character, and
why could not the same outside encouragement
be had. But you must.
do something yourself first.
AS TO COMPULSORY EDUCATION.1
It is stated that a compulsory edu- j
cation measure will be introduced in j
the next legislature. Gov. Blease
gives out an interview that he will
certainly place his veto on any such
measure should it pass 'he legislature.
He states that this questiw was an issue
in the recent campaign, and that
he was elected on the platform against
such a measure. It may have been in
his platform, but it is our opinion that
there were no issues discussed in the
campaign, and more's the pity there
wasn't. As we recall it, the campaign
was more a campaign of abuse and j
vituperation1 and of personalities than j
j any sort of campaign of education, or j
even remote discussion of issues. It j *
| is known that Gov. Biease has taken j
j position against a compulsory educa- i
| tion measure long before he was elect- j
ed governor, and, therefore, his posi!
tion now is entirely consistent with his
past record on the subject.
Ther is need for something. Com- j
pulsory education may not be the solu- j,
tion, but some means should be devis-1
ed to force those parents* who seem j 1
not to realize the importance -of edu-'1
eating their children to wake up to |'
their duty. And then the children j,
should be given an opportunity to do 1,
something for themselves and not be j
treated as chattel.
We may not be ready for compulsory J
education, but it is high time we werej
getting ready to do something for the j
children of the commonwealth. We 1
believe some sort of mild law on the ]
subject would do good. It seems in J
this day we have to have a law for
everything, and we- can think of nothing
of more vital importance to the j
State than the education of the chil- J
dren, and if the parents will not see j
that their children arei educated then j
the State should step in and say theyj
_i?TMo-Vif tn, tav fhp neotlle !
ttilU.ll Lftr. j, no ^ A j
for their education carries with it the
right to see that the children are giv- ^
en the advantages thus offered. There
is little use to spend money for the
schools if the children are not in the
schools. They can not get the bene- '
fit if they do not attend. ,
