"Why not organize that alfalfa club

Come on Mr. Summer and call that
meeting of the automobile owners and
let us get busy dragging the roads.!
Especially the road from the Laurens
line to the Lexington line and liave

The Greenville Piedmont says a
great many tourists are going through J
the country from the low country to
the mountains. A great many more
would go if the roads were put in
proper condition. And Newberry is !
the gateway from the low country to
the up-country. To go to Spartanburg
or Greenville or any part of the
up country you must come uauu6u ,
Newberry. It should be the pride of
Newberry to have the ideal road from
the low country and set the example I
for the rest of the way. "We now have
a fairly good road but it needs maintenance.
We noticed in the papers the other
day where some one was organizing!
a lyceum course for .the rural schools.
We had that in mind in all the schools
we built or planned or suggested and
never thought of building, planning
or suggesting a school building with-:
out providing an auditorium. A place j
for the people of the community toj
meet, and to Jiave lyceum courses or
"any other entertainments they might j
desire. The rural lyceum is a good j
suggestion. An auditorium j.s just as j
" important in the rural school house j
as the class room. It is the only way '.
to establish the rural community I
centre. If these rural community centres
are not established it means the
depopulation of the rural districts of
the most desirable citizens for they
are going to educate their children, if
to do so they have to move to the
towns and centres of population.

I came across a copy of Judge re%
cently, and on' the first page was a
beautiful and an instructive picture
of a young man and a young woman
in affectionate embrace, and on the
side a little cupid *nd beneath the
picture these words were -^written:
^ "The sum of human happiness." The
picture represented a lesson in addition.
The lesson was one heart equal
to one. One heart equal to one, and
the total was two hearts equal to
one. It -was a beautiful picture
and a beautiful lesson and one that
every man and e?ery woman who link
their lives togeiQi^r should learn and
then observe. voften in real life
the sum does not add that way. The
reason for so many unhappy homes

make the home do not learn this simple
lesson in addition. It is easy and
simple and I would commend it to
every one who is conTemplating the
establishment of a home, and to thos?
who have already undertaken the es- j
tablishment of a home! Th-9 fact is, ;
if you have not learned this simple
lesson in addition there can be no j
happy home or any other kind worthy
the name. Take it from me.
In a subsequent. issue of Judge,!
which came under my observation!
there was another picture on the first!
page which represented a man in a j
barber's chair with the barber trim.ming
his hair, a manicurist paring his
nails, a bootblack shining his shoes
and he himself smoking away at a
cigar, and beneath the picture these
words: "A man of affairs." Too busy
to attend to one thing at a time. He
scarcely has time to learn the simple
lesson mentioned above. Men of afI,

It won't matter then whether their

travel the same road of the m^n who j
were not so busy. Of the men who I
had time for the little courtesies and j
amenities of life and will take no j
more with them to that other and mysterious
world. Of course, we should
all be men of affairs, but we should (

the dollar as if they thought the accumulation
of money was the summum
bonum of human existence. I j
reckon my Latin is good. I don't T
know. It has been a many day since
t studied anv Latin, but you know ,
what I mean. I wonder sometimes j j,
if these men of affairs ever stop lo t
consider what it all means. Where ^
it all ends. I have wished sometimes r
that I was a thing of affairs and had c
a business appreciation of the value ^
of a dollar, as the business man would c
say,, and then I think well, what does j

away with me. And what's the dif- j
ference. Don't misunderstand me. I
wouldn't have any one slothful in business,
but what I mean is don't put 1
business above everything else.
Think of some of the little things that
go to make up the sum of human happiness.
Life is but a span at best.
I read the following in a newspaper c
the other day and I want to commend $
it to some^pf the young men who are e
throwing their supbstanee away in d
riotous living. Think of a prince be- u
ing allowed only that amount as
spending money. That was more than J
I had when I went to college but I *
went to get an education. That is
not the main purpose now with some 3
boys and girls and if they had only s
$1.25 to spend per week they would j a
stay at iaome: - 4 c
Has $1.25 a Week to Spend.
The amount allotted to the Prince
of Wales for pooket money has' just
become known. Every Saturday he
receives just $1.25, which he terms
his old-age pension. He is Occasion- j
ally a trifle extravagant and mortgages
his money in advance. *
Toward the end of the last term at
Oxford he wras asked by a friend to
join a party to visit the theatre. It
should be explained that when a friend

sity, it is an understood thing that
each pays his own expenses. The
prince's reply was "Sorry, old man,
but I am clean broke."
"Why don't you wrrite home for
some more?" asked the friend.
"I did," replied the prince, "but
mother said I was too extravagant,
and refused to allow me to have any
more money this term." /
I said something about the old court
house building in my^ last notes. And
I am not going to criticize any one,
for the work is such a great improvement
that I do not feel that any one
has a right to raise an adverse criticism
on any part of it, and yet I had
a little curiosity to know who select
ed tbe combination of colors as to
the painting. That's all. The grass

and everything is lovely. 'And to
keep pace with the march of- improvement
the grass was being mowed at

or Mr. Crotwell or whoever has authority

it would greatly add to the appearance
of things and would inconvenience
no one. But we can't get everything
at once and must be satisfied
and thankful for what we receive.
I noticed the other day when I was |
down town thai the work of paving j
Friend street was going merrily on
and such ^n improvement I know
every one 'is wondering why it was
not done long ago. It is always so
with any needed improvement. The
kickers wonder Why they kicked. The
surroundings at the postoffice are >
greatly improved, and I am pleased to ;
note it. Now, if Mayor Wright would j
just tak^ my suggestion and pave the ;
street leading from the postoffic? up
to his handsome residence every one
would be delighted for it would add
so much to the improvements at the
postoffice. Don't be afraid you will |
be criticized if you do it, Mr. Wright. |
It is the right thing to do and a lit- |

Dear Sir: At your request, I am
landing you a statement over my siglature
of the balance to the credit of
;ach school district and the overdrafts,
vhere an overdraft occurs, as shown
)y my books. Just why you desire
ihis statement over my. signature, I j
lo not know, because as I told you,
ny books show this and they are part
>f the record of the office, and besides
rou were present and saw the books
:heeked with the* county treasurer,
lowever, if the statement will be of
.ny assistance to you in the work for
he schools, I am more than glad to
urnish it, even though it entails work
am not called upon to render.
I will also*request the papers to
mblish this statement so that the
>eople may see just how each district .
tands. This letter should also be
nade and considered part of the statement.
You will see that the balance at the
:lose of the school year June 30, is
1,634.32 more than it was a year ago,
<ven though we spent on the schools
luring the last year more than $25,>00,
more than the year before.
Deducting the overdrafts from each
'ear leaves a net balance in favor of
he year closing :June 30, 1913, of $694.

of $300, has been made to this district
from the half mill tax to be collected
during this year. In Little
Mountain a bond for $">00 was paid
the past school year and by refunding
tin? remainder of the bonded indebtedness
this district will soon be on
good financial basis. In Chappells
there is really no overdraft as this
payment was made on the building in
anticipation of the money from bonds
and will be replaced. In the other districts
where overdrafts occur they
should not have been permitted, but

gether amounting to less than $100.
The building fund is slightly overdrawn
tor the reason that we were
helping under the State law certain
districts 'n which new buildings were
being erected ard the appropriation
for the year was r>?+ quit? sufficient.
A:-, to the dispensary fund I spent
all the law would permit me to spend
?one-fourth each year. I could and
w?ulfl have used it all to advantage
if the law had permitted.
I have found that in some of the
distress where the largest balances
are carried, the schools are the poorest.
It takes money to have a school,
but money alone does not constitute
a good school, and I would rather
see a district with no balance carried
forward, if the money liad been used

than a district with a big balance and
a poor record for a school.
I trust that this explanation and
the accompanying statement over my
signature will answer your purposes
and will be of benefit in your work
among the schools. If there is any
other information you may desire over
my signature, I will be pleased to
furnish it, if it is in my po\fer to do
