In speaking of the condition of tml
Rosemont cemeterv it must be borne i
in mind that the trustees have only; ce|,
a limited amount of money at their Van
disposal and of course can not do a ! had
great deal in the way of permanent' ^
improvements. We understand, howi
- - - i l
ever, that arrangements are unuer

improved ynd a new iron fence placed | ten
the entire length of the lot along *he '
public road. A matter of great im- J101
, , : sho
portance in connection witn the care ,
of the cemetery is the manner in j T
which the individual owners o: lots' pra
keep them. If the owners of the va- J firii
rious lots would cooperate with thejzeu

could be greatly improved with very | era'
little expense or labor on the part of CltT
anyone. We hope that all parties
concerned will work together and co-; ^
operate for the improvement in thejej^
appearance of our ci-y of the dead. j mal
A GOOG THING. T
A banker recently suggested to j wei
the Ledger the possibilities attend- j not
* ing the growth of Gaffney if the j T
property holders of this twon should er
form a building and loan association ,
which would lend money at 6 per j
cent. There are hundreds of men j
living in Gaffney who, if they could the
borrow as much as $5,000 or more Am
or nor ppnt would te?r down their llls*
M . V v w?v. - - _
present home and build finer dwellings.
We believe half a million dollars
a year would be invested in 1 boa
building up Gaffney in this way j ^
alone if a man could get money at!
6 per cent. The excessive rate of ^
interest. allowed by law in this j pcj t
State, together wit'll the trimmings ; an(j
tacked -on by the money lenders' She
make investment in real estate al- mai
I ^ ^
most prohibitive. One cannot af- j * "v
ford to borrow money because it lot
takes all he can make, and some-1 wj1
times more, to pay the interest, | D. i
therefore the borrower not only runs ber
all ihe risk but does all the work ?*
and all the urofits go to the lender.? j
Gaffney Ledger. j mo1
The editor of The Herald and News mid
has been talking with a banker in Xew- 1 goo
berry along the same line. The matter I r
has been under consideration for someMrs
time. This banker promises to take J)0r
the lead in the organization of a purely mo
building and loan association in Xew- ren
berry. One that will lend money to
those who desire to own their own L?
homes in preference to nny ether party j
and that will lend it at he rate not ex- tjlr
ceeding 6 per cent. fric
The purpose of such an institution sur
would be to encourage home owning..lile

is honest, desires a home of his own, ju:s
it should be :he purpose of such an she
institution to buy it outright for him ne)
and encourage him to pay for it at i *se
a low rate oi inerest wtih the money ls 1

In. connection with it, as human life is | We]
always uncertain, he might take out j tha
a life insurance policy so that in the ; us
event of his death his family would i
have a home unencumbered. Such a _
building and loan should be perpetual i w-n
and permit anyone to take out stock no
at any time. With the right man behind
it such an institution would do
a great deal to build up the community q
and at the same time assis: deserving 1 att<
men with small means to become home hoi
owners. We hope to see the organiza-110
tion starred in Newberry at once. ^
