Friday, January 3, 1913.
-* Don't forget to write it 1913.
The legislature meets on the 14th.
There hats been 110 vote on the removal
of Chicora college during 1913.
The parcels post will be a great help
to the local merchant and to the man
who lives in the country.
The Idler has commenced again.
Don't know how long it will hold out.
If you have any troubles tell 'em to it.
Another strip of Lexington has gone
into Richland county. What has become
of that portion that was going to
k . come into Xewberry? We hope it is
not lost nor strayed nor stolen. 1
The Augusta Chronicle writes an
editorial on "It pays to advertise."
Certainly it does. Who says it doesn't,
except the merchant who has no business?
In fact in this day of publicity
the man who does not advertise will
be lost in the shuffle.
If you want the news while it is
news better send your subscription to
The Herald and Xews. Now is the
time. The Herald and Xews will have
a special service from Columbia while
the legislature is in session and will
keep its readers posted as to what the
eolons are doing. The price is only
$1.50 a year.
What about some of these Newberry
streets ? Wonder - if Mayor
Wright has been over any "of them recently.
They are worse than some of
the country roads. The split log drag
: would help them. Maybe there is no
street force at work. We have not
seen any in a long time.
There is a little section of the road
from Newberry to Prosperity, almost,
if not entirely, within the corporate
limits of the city of Newberry, that
' just an hour's work would put in good
condition, and there is no excuse for
not giving this much time to the working
President-elect Wilson greets '13 as1
his lucky number. We hope he is correct.
Gov. Blease at one time considered
it his lucky number also. We believe
he claimed to have been born on
the thirteenth of the month, to have
been married on the thirteenth and to
have been elected governor the first
time on the thirteenth. I
Somebody said the other day that j
onh ntpwr had too much toj
1 lie riui ciivi uuu ?i
Bay about the split log drag. Maybe
so, but we are going to keep this
splendid road working machine before
the people of Newberry ' constantly
during the good year 1913. We know
some roads right now where the drag
could be used to great advantage for
the improvement c 2 the roads. It
would cost so little to use it that we
can not understand why it is notj
brought into service.
The Herald and News is trying to
get its business forces organized for
the new year. Mr. R. H. Greneker
will hare charge of the subscriptions
as heretofore. 11 you u<i?e anj ,
scription troubles report them to him. j
He is the doctor.
Mr. R, M. Hitt, an experienced newspaper
man, will have charge of tiie advertisements
and will endeavor to
please you. The job department has
been transferred to Mr. Jas. -L. Aull,
who is conducting the business under
the name of the Aull Printing company.
He is prepared to handle all
styles of printing with dispatch and
in good workmanlike style.
The Columbia Record is authority
for the statement that Mr. Geo. R.
Rembert, of the Richland delegation,
will likely "be a candidate for speaker
of the house, unless he is given as
su^ance that be will be made chair- u
man of the ways and means commit- "s
tee. We do not know who is in line for
the chairmanship of this most import- ^
ant committee, but we do know that rj
the house will make a mistake if it t
does not elect Mendel L. Smith speak- j'
! er. There is 110 better presiding ol'-ic
ficer in the membership of the house;
| than M. L. Smith. And for that mati
j fer ther$ is no better presiding officer j
anywhere than he is. With a great j
many new members a good and exper-1
ienced presiding officer will help great-j
ly with the orderly dispatch of the!
business of legislation
What about that meeting of the cit-i
izens of Newberry around the same j
board with their leet under tie same
table, Mr. President John M. Kinard,
i of t^e chamber of commerce? Don't;
you think it would be a good thing, j s

The most important thing to do, and
the one thing around which all progress
and growth in Newberry will de?.
pend in the future, is to get the business
men of the community united in a
common purpose to work together for
the upbuilding of the community, and
until this is done it is very little use
to undertake anything. We need the
get-together spirit and the broadening
of the vision and the enlargement and
extension of the viewpoint. We need
to have a meeting to discuss the good
of the order and to take action under
- _ I c
the general welfare clause. We could!v
accomplish a great many things under j ^
these two heads if we would only c
mean what we say and do what we z

I have about concluded to take one ^
more shot at some things that I see ^
and hear and observe, and try once c
again to wake up the deadened con- f

In one of the paragraphs, speaking of v
the present times and deploring the 0
tendencies in many directions, that
everything not new is old-fashioned, n
and everything not of the times is be- j.
hind-the-times, and that everything not s
down-to-date is out-of-date, I find the +
following observation: ? t
??? j v
"Patriotism, love of country, is old, n
very old, and is also?or therefore? r
quite out-of-date. To speak or - write
of patriotism, seriously, or to consider ^
it a factor in life?to live it, depend p
ipon it, or appeal to ii. is to be eon- I
idered very strange and sadly old-!
ashioned. Tlie modern, down-to-date, j
ige considers seriously not. patriotism!

strives to go ahead. To talk only of j

hings, to live only these things, is to |
modern and down?low down?to- j
late. To work for any motive but the j
naking of money is to be queerly be- j
lind-the-times. To write a book or j
Daint a picture or sing a song, to j
>reach a sermon, to do anything for j
my reason under heaven but for cash j
narks you a fanatic and a fool. To j
jelieve, even, that any one does any-j
hing save for the money there is in j
t stamps yon simple and unsophisti-j
;ated, indeed. To profess such a be- j
ief, save you put your tongue in your;
;heek, marks you peculiar.
''Long, long, ago mankind put its best i
strength, its best thought, its best life,I
nto its work, without regard for thoj
nice simply because it was its work.i
\nd the work so wrought in those

late work will endure for the very sim-j
)Ie reason that we do not want it to
endure. 'The world wants something
lew.' Down-to-date-ism does not!
rvant its work to'last longer than the;
lollar it brings. Never fear, the world i
s getting something new. But, though
,ve have grown so bravely away from
;hose queer, old-fashioned days w*e
lave not succeeded yet in growing alogether
away from the works that |
.hose old-fashioned days produced.

Then the story goes on to tell about
;he good old days in the long ago
vhen men and women would mate in
ove and build homes that were really
lomes as the creator intended they
>hould be. "In those times, now eo
?adly old and out-of-date, men planied
and labored for homes and chil.
Iren and women were home-makers
tnd mothers. But the world is now
ar from those ancient ways and out)f-date
ideals. Marriage haiS little to
io with - home-making these modern
lays.- It has almost nothing to do
vith children. We have in our downo-date-ism,
come to be a nation of
:hildless wives and homeless husbands.
iVe are dwellers in flats, apartments,
loteis, where children would be in the
vq-t .hut dnars a re welcome if only
hey be useless dogs. We live in
louses that are always for 'Sate or
ent* It is our proud boast that wej
jossess nothiug that is not on thei
narket for a price. The thought of;l
jelling a home is not painful for we j
lo not know the value of a home. We!
lave, for convenience, to gratify our j
nodern, down-to-date, ever changing j
astes, popularized the divorce court!
is though a husband or wife of more j
han three seasons is old-fashioned
md should be discarded for one of,
lewer pattern, more in harmony with
>ur modern ideals of marriage."
"Almost it is as though God did not
:now what he was about when he made
riisf.,0 a hnme above a
(\ Uiiiciii. i vy _
:lub; a nursery above the public plat? j
orm; a fireside above politics; the
>rattle of children above newspaper
lotoriety; the love of boys and : girls
ibove the excitement of social con-1
luest; the work of bearing strong men
thd true women for the glory of the
ace above the near intellectual puruits
arid the attainments of a shallow
hinking; all this is to be sadly oldashioned.
All this is so behind-theimes
that one must confess such
hocking taste with all humiliation."
You may not agree with this picure,
and so far as we are concerned
ight here in Newberry, it may be a
ittle overdrawn, but if you will stop
ong enough to consider you will rea
ize a great deal of truth in the story.
Ve do not love our home like they did
n the good old days, because we put
, price upon it?a money price.' Ev.
rything is measured by the dollar,
'he motive for doing anything and
verything is the money that's in it.
f it isn't, the world says it is, so what's
he difference. Patriotism can not live
rhere there is not a love of home-,
lome owners is what the nation needs. '
teal homes kept by real women. And
without patriotism and love of home,
ur institutions can not endure. The
>ve of money?the selfish love of
loney?has kept Newberry from hav-1
ng that park that I advocated so |
trongly and spent so much of my
ime and energy in trying to get for
he people of Newbc-rry. Somebody

and if the pocket could be reached the
