DR. W. E. PELHA3I, SR.
i The Drug Store of W. E. Pelham and
Son Succeeded by a Company of
Bright Young Men.
! It is a long time to look back to the
year that Dr. Wm. E. Pelham opened
a drug store in the town of Newber- i
ry. He was a young man then, and
he is not' an old man now, and Newberry
was comparatively a young 1
town. In Pelham's time it was a happy
period, and it is pleasant to recall the
years and all hat they held. There
'.have been many changes since and ,
Dr. Pel'ham lives to tell of them. But
he has retired from the business, the
firm nf Dr Wm E. Pelham and Son
. having been bought by a company of
' young men. Dr. Pelham retires not
on account of old age or infirmities,
for he is still young and vigorous,
but because the business had become
too confining for him. Nearly forty
years of hard and close application
to the exacting duiies of a druggist
and pharmacist would be enough for
any man to endure, and more than tae
majority of men could stand. Dr.
Pelham, who is full of energy and
pluck, has devoted the years of his life
to a steady pursuit of his chosen profession
and he has been a successful
business man. He is a versatile man
and possesses talent, being a fine
writer, inheriting this marked ability
; trom his distinguished father, the
lamented Professor Charles Pearce
Pelham w,ho was well known as an
editor of force and influence in his
day and generation. j
Dr. Pelham graduated from the
South Carolina college in the class of
1871. He moved to Newberry in 1874.
having been associated prior to rhat
period with Dr Walter Fisher as his
prescription clerk. He has been
identified in all these years with ?.11
that meant the upbuilding of the community
in its religious, social and
business aspects, and Newberry enjoys
the reputation of cultivating,
cherishing and nurturing these in
their highest, best and purest forms,
being known far and wide as a city of
clean habits and careful ways in all >
the walks of life.
! The successors to Dr. Wm. E. Peli
ham and Son are Messrs. J. E. Stokes,
I W. O. Miller, E. E. Stuck and Jas. W.
Johnson, young men of business abili- j
ty, excep ional merit and character,
and of the right mental and moral .
calibre to make a success of the undertaking.

Tradle Roll Department
A word from the County HJiemeniary
superintendent to those interested in
the Cradle role departments of the
Dear Cradle Roll Superintendents:
I am in receipt of a letter from the
department of St. Paul's Sunday
school that sounds so interesting :o
me that I am going to give you the
benefit of a portion of the letter.
"Our Cradle roM was organized in
1908. The children are promoted to
beginners department when they are
5 yeai Id. We have a reception once
a year. This department is growing.
Our offering has increased every year.
" ~ " " * T>"U ?
It was $S.oU tnis year, me llUiXJLU^l
enrolled is 60/'
We draw the conclusion at once
that St. Paul's Sunday school is a wide
awake school and that its cradle roll
superintendent is up and doing.
W!hat Mrs. Wedaman is doing for S:.
Paul's Sunday school can be done by
a lady from each school. I do not
mean to say that every school could
gather 60 for its cradle roll. But if
there are 10 babies who should belong
to your cradle roll and you enroll 10,
you may be doing even more than Mrs.
Wedaman, for there may be a dozen
more in that congregation whom she

isfied until we get every baby on the
cradle roll. And I wish to say to the
Christian ladies that if there is not a
cradle roll department in t'he Sunday
school to which you belong won't you
assume the responsibility of organizing
one? I assure you you would be delighted
with the work after you once
got started. If you need any help
call on me and 1 shall be delighted
to assist you.

the State elementary superintendent
saying that the county having the
largest number of cradle rolls would
be presented with a banner for that
department at the next State Sunday
school convention, Newberry county
can win this banner if each school
will have one of its wide awake ladies
to gather in the babies. Friends help
me in this work. Won't you?
Let's have a hearty response from all
the schools of the county.

Washington, Nov. 19.?The war department
today wrote the governor of
South Carolina a letter bearing on the i
recent inspection of South Carolina
troops and while the department declined
to make public here the contents
of this letter before it has been
received by the governor, it is understood
that in plain terms it calls attention
to tae very unsatisfactory condition
of the troops at the present
time. Lieut. Col. David C. Shanks of
the army made an inspection of the
troops in compliance with orders from
the secretary of war between October
6 and October 21, 1913.
I The object was to determine the
condition of the 12 companies which
had been inspected and reported as
unsatisfactory at an inspection made
in Aiarcn ana Aprn, i?io. i ao not
i wish to make any recommendations
I in regard to these companies," the report
says. "There may be considerations
affecting them or important reasons
for retaining them that are not
fully known to me.
"The following expression or opinion
regarding their present condition
and reasonable prospect of improvement
is based upon the idea that the
United States desires to encourage
| military instruction in every way; it
[ does not want to withdraw opportuni
ty for military instruction in any case
where it seems reasonable to suppose
that the government may receive
even a fair return for the money invested
or the efforts made.
An analysis of this in the absence J
of specific and more direct information
which is contained in the letter
from the war department to the governor
of South Carolina, leaves little
room to doubt that, taken as a wiiole
and witj special reference to the companies
at Chesterfield, Bamberg,
Barnwell, Bennettsville, Conway and
Lancaster, the federal authorities are
not satisfied with their showing. This
the state of their condition even after
the warning or<ler wnich several
of the South Carolina companies rej
ceived from the war department last
It will be noted also that the companies
at Elloree, Darlington, and
i Companies C and B at Columbia, must
! show improvement before their gen|
eral condition will be satisfactory to
j the secretary of war. It is assumed
j that upon receipt of the letter from
j the secretary of war to the governor
| of South Carolina by the latter, the
! matter will assume definite shape. It
