towns are having such a day. ; c
Abbeville and Lancaster have or- j
ganized chambers of commerce. These ' j.
organizations properly conducted do n
a great deal for the up-building of any s,
community. i w
'How would it do to ge: the Dukes ei
financially imerested in Xewberrv?
If selling them our power plant would I ig
get them to investing money in other g,
enterprises in the community, don't s1
you think it would be a good thing? c;
The city authorities have been using i
the split log drag on the streets to i .
great advantage and profit to the
streets. Why not use the drag more extensively
and to the great benefit of \
some of our streets?
The split log drag could be usee1 to
great advantage on many of our I
roads. Trouble is no one has time and
yet all tJhose who are busy using the j
roads will spend four days doing what
could be easier done in two days ralhtfc
er than spend one day dragging the
road. See the point.
We hope t&at Supervisor Chappell b(
will take sufficient Time to complete to
the road from Prosperity to Jollyj Si
Street. He did some go-od work on it jte
last year but it needs some drain pipes in
"and the ditches cleaned out. All C(
these places could be given attention w
in a day or two. That rocky hill just
9 beyond the Aull place and before you
reach Jolly Street has been put in fine
condition and it is still in good fix.

DR. STKAIT TAKES CHARGE.
Dr. Strait has qualified as superin- j
tendent of the State Hospital for the j
Insane, and has taken charge of the

iJiSClLUllUU. iic is <X gcuticilltiii ?yiu<j ,

pie, and against whose character as a ,
man and whose reputation as a phy- |
sician nobody has been able to say i
anything, even in the stirring circum- !
stances in which his appointment was ,
made. As matter of fact, without ref- I
erence to anvrhing that has gone be
fore, Dr. Strait is a very tine gentleman
and a physician of recognized
ability, and, above all, he is a man cf;
good, hard common sense, and we j
trust that under ihis administration of;
the affairs of the State hospital peace
will reign supreme, as we believe it <
will. , %
. 'v THK PITY OF DEMOCRATS.
The club meetings will come next:
month, and then the county conven-j
tions along about the first of May, and
then the State convention. The cam- j
paign is almost upon us. It Is hardly J
possible that the campaign this sum-!
mer will be as bitter as was that of j
two years ago, but it seems now as if
the "lines" are being drawn again.
In the meantime, while no so-called
"primary reform" law was passed by
the legislature, the voters o aglit to
register. It is easy enough to sit down j
and conclude that it will be "all right,j
anyhow," but it is the duty of the peo- j
pie to register and it is their duty, as j
sood Democrats, to be prepared to vote J
in the general election. As The Her- j
aid and News has called attention to
several times before, in any one of a :
number of general elections held in ,
the town of Newberry in recent years,!
it would have been an easy matter to j
have run in an independent ticket, in |
the face of only some four or six or ^
eight Democratic votes cast in a ward, j
It is getting time for the people to
it lip and take notice.
And it is not only the duty of good
Kmocrats to register, but it is their

The Herald and News has frequent

to the importance of having
ome sort of fire alarm system by
hich the people might be able to loate
a fire when the alarm was soundd.
When the siren is sounded every
ne begins to inquire where the fire

vstem could be inaugurated or in allprl

The importance of this was emphazed
on Tuesday night when the siren

drove up in front of Maves' drug

itomobiles roared through the streets

bv which everyone could locate

ie alarm was sent in.
Of course, we understand that ornarily
the alarm is sent to the fire
)use and from there the notice is sent
i the siren to give the alarm, but in
;ving the alarm why not have a sysm
by which the citizens of ordinary
telligence could locate at least the

Struc-turally these cars may have
i been exact duplicates as nearly as !
j duplication can be secured by auto-;
ma ic machinery. Their parts would
; tallv to the thousandth of an incn. I
1 Their weights would vary by a few
jounces only. The old comparison "as i
'alike as two paas*' w:>uld have been'
i coarse for such an application. Yet j
jcne car was better than the other.
Quite & en this dissimilarity, it uas i
! been n tice'I, disappeared after the '
| cars had been for some time 111 use.
i Sometimes, however, it has remained
j in evidence for years.
That this condition is due to the j
difference in adjustment is the expla- I
1 na-.ion which engineers have always !
given to this singular phenomenon,
j It has been merely one more case of
j the human equation. Cars can be built
by machinery, but they must still be
adjusted by hand.

series of experiments, fitted up a new !

or for final approval.
A Studebal^er chassis comes to this
test complete except for body and
wheels, it is attached by its rear axle
to a large brake equipped with speedometer,
pressure dial and other devices.
The chassis smarts by its own
electrical system and runs under its
cwn power while skilled workmen test (
not only the power and flexibility of i
its motor but also go over in detail
every adjustment of gear and bearing.
The definite nature of the result attained
and the unusual facility for tiiie
detection of noise and vibration make
this method of adjustment absolutely
accurate, for each car must score a
cer ain definite record before passed
along for road test and completion.
Thirty chassis can be handled simultaneously
in this test, which sup

Very well, "smog" let it be. But
why end there? Let's call a fixture
of snow and mud "smud," a mixture
of snow and soot "smoot,'' and a mixture
of snow and hail "snail." Thus
we might have a weather forecast:

tomorrow smoggy with smud."'
