Hon. Fred. H. Dominick has gone to
Columbia to assume his new duties as
. assistant attorney general. We re'
-v 1 >T_
gret to see you leave rsewuenv, .ui.
Dominick, even though your absence
be but temporary, but we wish you
mighty well in your private and official
life, and shall watch your official
career with keen interest.
The Newberry Herald and News
rather thinks the Confederate home
needs investigation. "We never saw
the wisdom of its establishment, and
if it is to be run for private gain, it
would better be discontinued, or put
on a purely business basis," it says.!
The Herald and News is wrong. The!
home is run on a good enough busi-j
ness basis. But it is loaded up with j
too much politics.?Orangeburg Times
Glad to learn that the home is on
a good basis. The supreme court says
that two salaried men were illegally
employed but a majority of the court
says pay them for tne time tney nave
actually illegally served, hut stop this
illegal business in the future. That
may have been politics. We do not
see how the home can be on a good
business basis if it is loaded up with j
politics. Maybe so. j
The Newberry Herald and News' i
hobby is the split log drag, and it Isj
a mighty good hobby. The split log!
drag should be. used in Dillon county, |
particularly at this season when the j
roads are being cut to pieces by the:
heavy fertilizer wagons. The split log!
drag is the most economical device
that can be used in working roads.?
The average farmer is afraid if he
does a little work on the roads some
one else who did no work will get a
little benefit. So he will pull his team
to death and take twice as long naming
his fertilizer?injure himself for
fear he might do some one else a little
benefit. The split log drag is a j
great machine ir Kepi Dusy auu iu
<?> THE IDLER j
<?v^ ? <S> ^ !
You know, I read with a good d?al'
of interest the interview of Governor
Blease on Newberry, when he was on:
a visit to the town recently, and it
expresses my views pretty clearly
and fully. I have often wondered why j
it was that so many of the Newberry!
people would say unkind things about;
their town. I do love to see a man?
or a woman for that matter?stand
up square for his own town and his.,
nwn neonle. I have been here a long
time, and it has often been a matter,
of deep mystery to me why so many '
people in this good old town w-ere
against so many other people?why
we have never been able to get that
spirit of self-help and co-operation so
essential to 'the growth and development
of any community. And it I
seems to me Lhat the spirit of criticism
and fault finding is more strongly
developed than it ever was in my I
knowledge of the town, and that
knowledge goes back for many, many
years, I would not like to say just
"how many, for some of these* youngj
and smart fellows might conclude
That I was too much out of date to
even have or express an opinion, ine
funny part to me. if you could properly
call any of it funiiV, is that so
many of those who have large interests
here, and who have made their
fortunes out of the community, seem
to hav^> so little interest in anything
nertaining to the general welfare of:
s the community. They are, as a rule,'
n-n/4 1 /-innet nolamitv V>mv-i
Hie UlgftCSl. anu IUUU?l ..
lers. and the last ones who will do
anything for the general welfare.
They seem to operate on the hypothesis
of an old latin motto T used to
know, I have forgotten the latin, but
n. liberal translation ran something
like this: "Every man for himself,
nnd d vil take the hindmost." and as
a result non? of them get very far
The d?vil will get most of them, if
they do not change their tune. Tt is
all passing strange. T am hoping that
the pendulum has swung as far in that
direction as it is pos-sible for it to
reach, and that soon, very soon, it
will begin to swing in the opposite
direction, and good old Xewberry will
; com;- into her own. We have some
mighty good people here, and it is a
mighty good old town in which to
live, despite the tendency to criticise.
Speaking about this, I read tne
other day in a newspaper a mighty
good little poem, which I am going to
quote, and which I am going to commend
to every one in Newberry, and
I am going to request every one who
reads it to commit it to memory,
and whenever he or she hears any one
knocking this town, to begin to repeat
the poem, and if you will do it
you will soon hear all this knocking
taking wings and fluttering away from
here. Here it is. Read it. Memorize
it and keep it constantly before your

has read, has come to my mind, and
it is a good 'one to keep before you
also. It is "The Friendly Hand/' by
James Whitcomb Riley. Read it. I
want to commend it especially to the
recorder of the city court. I hope
he is trying to do his duty, and to do
it in the interest of law and order,

want to say to him, however, that ;
there is high authority for tempering
justice with mercv. I may be mistaken,
but I would rather be charged with
having too much heart than to have
credit for being a great and austere
judge, with great mentality and abundance
of legal lore and a terror to all
who violated the letter of the law.
I am constrained to make this observation
by the case of an unfortunate
man, who was hauled before the
recorder by our vigilant imported
chief of police on the charge of transporting
liquor. He was found to have
on his person a half pint. If the chief
had not been very vigilant, the chief j
would not have found it on his per-j
son, but in his person in a short while.
The poor fellow was never known to
sell it. He has been known to consume
a good part of it, however. I
suppose he was too honorable to tell!
from who?n he bought it, and, there-J
fore, as he was found in actual pos-j
session, a case was made against him.
TTp wfl? hnrn and reared here, and no-!
body ever accused him of selling, St)
when found in tlie possession of a half
pint he was arraigned for transporting?I
suppose transporting to some
convenient place at which he might
dispose?I reckon that is the proper
word?at least, to some place where
be might quench that never .dying
thirst, which to him has become almost
a disease, with the accursed

is required. A friend of former
rand palmier days was touched by the
scene and put up the cash. The cas^i
| came on for trial. There was no deI
fense. Guilty was the verdict. No
doubt that he had the liquor. No
evidence that he was selling. Friendless.
Penniless. The austere judge
says $75 or thirty days. To th? cell
he goes. It may be justice. I doubt
it. If it is, however, it was not temp!
er?d with mercy. Mercy to a homeless,
penniless, friendless, unfortunate
man. Harmless, I might say, also, ex,
cept to himself. It may be right. It
may be right. It may be- justice. I
don't know. I am not the judge. Tt
may receive the applause of some of
the soody, goody, extreme temperance
people, who ha v.? the honest, though

to bring about temperance and to reform
the world. If it is, then I have
not r?ad correctly, or with proper understanding,
the teachings of. the
Great Master. And if our laws and
ideas of justice are not founded upon
these teachings then sooner or later
they will all come to naught, and retributive
justice will be our part. I

forget to give you what James Whitcomb
Riley says. Here it is. Read it:
THE FRIENDLY HAND.
When a man ain't got a cent, an' he's
feelin' kind o' blue,
An' the clouds hang dark an' heavy
an' won't let the sunshine
i It's a great thing, 0 my brethren, for
a feller just to lay
His hand upon your shoulder in a
friendly sort of way!
It makes a man feel curious, it makes
the tear drops start,
An' you feel a sort o' flutter in the
region of the heart.
You can't look up an' meet his eyes,
you don't know what to say,
WTi-en his hand is on your shoulder
in a friendly sort o' way.
Oh, the world's a curious compound,
with its honey an' its gall,
Yvith its cares an' bitter crosses?but
a good world, after all.
An' a good God must have made it?
leastways that's what I say
When a hand rests on my shoulder
in a friendly-sort o' way.
a rrienaiy nana on tms poor reilow's
shoulder in a friendly sort of way
would have done a lot more- good to
him and the community than all your
$75 or thirty days. Think of it and ;
answer me honestly if I am not right.
Somebody is going to say I am
knocking. Not so. I am just making
an observation, and expressing my
oDinion in a friendlv and kindlv way.
| and trying to make the people see
I what is right and what is not. My
j vtaws of American liberty and de!
mocracy?I'm a Democrat?are dif- ',
: ferent from the modern interpretation
j of some so-call-ed leaders among us,
j and whenever I get an opportunity,
without giving offence, to express >
them, I just can't help it. That is all ,
there is to it.' Xo offense is intended ?
ariv nrip T inst had tn <?flv what. .
I thought, and I can't help it. My
heart has been touched by this case,
j It may be waited sympathy. I don't
know. If it is I would rather err on
that side, I have been here a long
time and I know som-e few things.
And if I don't die or get arrested I
expect will be here when our imported
chief has been exported.
P. S.?Let no one get the erroneous
impression from what is here writ
that I am not in favor of the strict
; enforcement of the law. I am willing to
put my record of a half century resij
dence in this community for a law
i abiding citizen, and a lover of peace
| and an advocate of the enforcement of
law against that of any one who is
' now charged witn the administration
i of the law. I believe in considering
! all the circumstances and environi
: ments of a case and in tempering justice
with mercy. T. I.
