Don't forget to use the split log
drag. After these rains would be a
good time. If properly used it may result
in a good road all the winter.
"Brother Elbert Aull dies hard. He
can't get over the fact that Cotton
Ed. Smith was returned to the United
States senate.?Gaffney Ledger.
Entirely wrong. We are not dead
neither are we dying. If Cotton Smith
can do naything for the cotton farmer ;
it seems to us this is a time to hear
from him. Don't you think so?
The Texas legislature is arranging
for the establishment of a central
bank with a capital of $25,000,000 and
it is to be established for the purpose ,
of lending money to the farmer and '
X. x-1-^ ? ~ ~ n ~ i. t !

Something like t?liat would be helpful
to South Carolina. The Texas legislature
has been in two special sessions
and one of the sessions was for the
purpose to providing these banking
facilities. An adequate currency to .
handle the crop is what we need.
The Herald and News prints today
several articles from the Tri-Weekly !
Herald of May 4, 1865. In fact, what
fwe print seems to cover everything that
was in that issue. Some of it is very
interesting. It should be remembered
also that at that time even the Tri
Weekly Herald was printed in Newberry.
The article on "Eve and Mary
Compared" is especially well written j
tin fact all of the paper is interesting
and we have no doubt will be read
with interest by all of our readers.
Secretary McAdoo is on his job. '
He gives notice to the banks that the
emergency currency and the money,
"which has been plaped in t''.:e banks j
by the government is for the purpose
of helping the farmer and that if he
finds any banks are not letting the far
juucis nave u ou proper security ana
at a reasonaJble rate of interest he
"will immediately withdraw the i
amounts that have been placed with 1
them. T-at is proper. It will do no !
good to have that money harded in the
banks and it would be wrong to charge (
an unreasonable rate of interest. v.
We notice that the grand juries!
of Orangeburg and Lexington counties J
have recommended that the special ,
constables be removed from those
counties, that tliey are unnecessary J
expenses. We 'have never teen of the j
opinion that it was necessary to have '
special officrs to look after the en- j
forcement of one law. ^
It should be the duty of the sheriffs
and their constables and rural policemen
and ijagistrates and their con-1
stables and city and town policemen
to look after the enforcement of the ;
whiskey laws as much as the enforce-i
ment of other laws.
T':ere are rumors to the effect that j
Governor Blease and Attorney General
Peeples engaged in a fisticuff bei
cause Peeples refused to reappoint,
1~v i _ i _ l -
ncu. uumimch assistant attorney
general. The least that can be said
about it is that Peeples proved himself
:in ingrate if he refused to recognize 1
Mr. Dominick's claims. Ke would'
never have been heard o:' had it not
been for Blease and Dominick. and it
is a dead moral certainly that Dominick
has been the brains of the attor
ney general s omee during the Blease
administration.?Gaff ney Ledger.
There is absolutely no foundation
in fact so far as we have been able
io hear for this rumor which seems to
lave gotten current over the State of
a fight between Blease and Peeples.
mere nas oeen no ainerence oetween
Mr. Dominick and Mr. Peeples. There
is no foundation for the statement
that Mr. Peeples refused to reappoint
Mr. Dominick. How such rumors gain
currency has always been a mystery.
THE 3IJLLS AM) THE COTTON
No South Carolina farmer confers
.my favor 012 a cotton mi'll by selling
otton to it at nine cents a pound. Xo
nan is advised "by Tne State to sell
.his cotton at, nine cents or. at ten'
cents, for that matter. The cotton j
mills are doubtless obtaining all the ]
cotton they require and they are not ;
in need of a guardian.
However, con011 mai uie cuum i <uolina
mills do not buy from' South
Carolina farmers they will buy from
the farmers of other cotton States.?
That is exactly the position of The 1
Herald and Xews. and yet if . some ;
sort of an arrangement could be ;
reach ed between the cotton mills of j
this county and the cotton farmers
of the county the mills could handle '
all the cotton we grow in the county
These are rather extraordinary times 1
and some extraordinary things would !
be permissible. One cotton mill in ;
this county sent away to anther State
$25,000 in one week for cotton and that
was when cotton was around nine
cents. That much money turned loose
here in one week for cotton would
have helped. We are not advising to
hold or sell but if some of the cot- j
ton is not turned into money something
ADVICE WITHOUT REWARD.
Editor Aull recalls in the Newberry
Herald and News the fact that
for 2o years he has been giving the
farmers of his county advice that, 1
had it been taken, would have placed
tteeni above need or neip irom tne
buy-a-bale movement. He says:
"The advice has been to grow on
the farm all you need to feed and
support the farm and then all the cotton
you can regardless of the price.
That is the only method by which the
farmer can become independent. The
farmer who does not have to sell his :
cotton unless he wants to can hold it
for a price wihich at least will pay
the cost of production. Legislation
may help temporarily but to be lasting
it must come back at last to the
advice given by The* Herald and
And then Editor Aull plaintively
adds: "And we have not been rewarded
with a seat in the United States
"* ~ " c - * -1 j. 3
lr a record ior givug uiat kiuu

senate, practically all of them can
'Nothing1 at all plaintive about it so
far as we are concerned. It is a
little plaintive though how the farmers
seem to delight in being fooled by tte
politician who in Rowing terms tells
them how much he loves them and
what he is going to do for them when
he is elected, and then how little^ he
does after he lands the jo-b. Of course,
the truth is t'here is little he can do.
We are always glad to do what "we
can to help any of our people and
we do not do it for reward or the
hope of reward, except the consciousness
of having done what we could
in the cause of humanity and for the
good of all the people.
The following invitations tave been
received in Newberry:

This marriage is of particular interest
to Newberry and Newberrians, ow
