What a fine time it has been this ,
week to drag the roads. It would have j
cost so little and would have been |
worth so much that we wonder more j
.split log drags were not on the roads,

Newberry and Prosperity would have j
put that road in fine condition. And 1
yet we would not. It is a pity it is
true, and yet no one was done any- j
:hing at all on tfcis road. When will
we realize ^hat we could do and how j
little it would cost if we would only

If Dolpa Jones issues the warrant
and says it is a just claim the chances
are that it is. Sam Carter may be <
right in refusing to pay the warrant j
for the expenses of tfhe warehouse
commissioner but we would bet on
Dolph Jones being right. He ifcas been
there a long time and the chances
are a hundred to one that any claim

better for the extraordinary session
to have provided in its apropriation

which is carried in the- warehouse bill,
but when Dolph Jnoes and the attorney
general say the warrant is properly
drawn we think Sam Carter i
would be justified m paying it. We I
believe this warehouse bill will be a
help to the farmer and we regret to
see it obstructed i:a its incipiency.
A FIXE MEETING.

and associations could learn some i
very valauble lessons by attending the !
sessions o;" the woman's convention i
meeting in our city at this time. We :
were permitted to sit in the business
session for a little while one day.
That is, we went in and they didn't!
put us out. For a body as large as j
it is it was the most orderly meeting i
we ever saw. The presiding officer |
is a gem as a presiding officer. Everything
moves like clock work and there
is perfect order. I!f you whisper to j
your neighbor you are reminded quiet- !
ly that it must stop. Just how she
manages it is a mystery, but s&'e
does. And she presides without giving
the impression that she is in
authority. If she could control the
members of the legislature like she
controls these women she would make !
an ideal speaker of the house. And '
you must remember that tue court '
house was filled to its capacity dur- I
ing all the sessions.
The papers read and t':e talks made j
at the evening sessions were far j
We are glad the convention came ;
here and that these good women have j
sojourned with us for a few days. It j
will do the town good. It has given |
the men and the women of the com- j
munity something else than toe low
price of' cotton and the war and t?%.e j
hard times to talk about and to t'iiink
about. Their presence and their meetings
will naive a good influence upon
the entire town and will linger long
with many of our people after these .
good women are gone. Besides they ;
are doing a good and a great work
for tee people of their State. We

RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
We regret that some very ugly errors
have crept into the paper recently,
but they have been unavoidable.
We hope to get on the job again
in good si:ape very soon. The editor

be relief.ed of the details of the office,
but since the war and the low price
of cotton he ?as to get back on the!
job and will have everything in good
running order very scon. Of the fam- i
ily staff there are only two of us left? i
the old man and the kid, and we arc
getting t?i?ss in fairly good shape,
and we have determined to give tfr.e n
people of Newberry the very best
paper they bave ever had, and we will ft
do so. In fact, we are doing so now ^
without any idea of attempting to
make comparisons or disparage any
| efforts that may nave been put forth' i
| in the past. Ii: your subscription is
expiring, renew and keep up with the
local happenings. It has always been ?
our idea that a local county paper
should first be a local paper and give
the happenings of the town and countv
and what general news it could
print. We have been here a long time
and ne<'. er felt more like hard work
and tnp oanacitv to nerform it than I w
, * | ?
we do now. We know that we ':ave I
been abused and misrepresented and } a
many times by people for whom we ^
have done the most, but that does not
molest us in the least. We feel that
we have done what we could for the
advancement of the community and
will continue to do so to the end. No ' N
doubt we have been dealt with more ???
kindly than we deserve, and in many I
resDGcts tnp neoole of the community !I
have been good to us, all of wfoicia we
appreciate. The Herald and News has
been here a long time?much longer
than the present editor, and will be
here when he has gone to his reward, j
vve nave tne nies 01 tne paper oouna
back among the fifties.
iXow what we want to say is ti>.at
t:is is a time when you should keep
up your subscription. The price is
the same while everything else has
increased. We charge the same as
when the paper was only published
once a week and when labor was
fifty per cent less Chan it is today.
If your time has expired renew. The
circulation man does not know any i
one. When your time is out your | .
name goes off, it makes no difference
who you are, unless you ask us to;
continue '."or a brief period whicfa we !
will gladly do provided ti':at brief !
period is really brief. When we ran
a credit system we ran a credit system.
Now we are running a c.ash svs- i
tem and it is cash to every one alike, j
We have on our books some ten to !
15 thousand dollars 'for subscriptions j
alone, due by people who live or have j
lived in Newberry and from whom we ;
do not hope to realize a cent. If we j
had that it would put us on easy j
street, but we are not complaining j
about it. It was our fault, and we j
heard a speaker say once that the j
hardest fall he ever received was j
when ke looked back at the rock over j
wiich he had just stumbled?he-'fell I
over a bigger one in front he didn't i
see because he was looking back. We ;
try to keep our eyes to the front
and to have faith in our fellowman,
but when it comes to subscription to
the paper that faith is based on the
cash in advarfce. We have said a great
ucai 1x1 ui v cm an v? in lciiucu. iccli C >?
your subscription promptly and keep
up with the procession. Amen!
SOT POPULAR BCT TRIE.
It may not be the popular thing to
say, but we believe it so strong that
we cannot refrain from saying, that
we believe that the best thing for the
farmer and for the merchant and for
the banker is for the farmer, if rne
owes any money, to sell some cotton
at seven and a quarter cents and
pay something on his debts and t'iius
put the merchant and the banker in ._i
a position help the farmer another ]Uim
