WHY DISCRIMINATE ?
We have from time to time said j

postal regulations made by the department
at Washington, which have
tfie same force as law. Of course it
does no good to refer to these matters
unless we had some congressmen who
would be sufficiently interested in
having equitable and sensible and
just laws and regulations, but somehow
we feel better after having delivered
ourselves of tne feelings which

a practical illustration of the inequality,
we sent by parcel post one thousdnd
circular letters to Columbia for
14 cents. We 'had one thousand small
hand bills which we wanted to send to
Prosperity, toe weight, we believed,
was 40 ounces, and the charge was
20 cents. If it had weighed 64 ounces
or more we suppose the charge would
have been about 10 or 15 cents. But
in addition to that, to show how the j
laws militate against the publisher, i
. / I
if this package of 40 ounces had been j
merchandise, shoes or any kind o: j
- x i J I
merchandise, the government wouiu
have charged the merchant seven
cents to haul it to Prosperity, whereas,
the newspaper printer had to pay 20
cents for it.
We would like to have some of our
congressmen or some of the of icials
who make t'bese regulations, explain
the reason for this discriminati n.
These hand bills were as much " ur
merchandise as the shoes or hats or
anything else sold by any merchant.
Why shouM it be worth more or
should the government charge more
to transport a few 'hand bills than it
would the same size and weight package
of merchandise. We would like
to have some explanation of this dis- j
We have been in the newspaper

have always stood for those things
which we have construed to be for the
best interests of this community, and
no enterprise has been undertaken
which was for the advancement of this
town and county and tihe uplift of
these people, that did not have ur
most loyal support, and without reward
or the hope bf reward, except
the satisfaction of having done cur
.duty. For confirmation of the truth
of this'statement we refer you to the
files of The Herald and News for he
past 30 years. Many of the enterprises
that have succeeded have done
so through our help and many of the

failed to help us when they fcad the
opportunity .to do so, but we haye
never whined or complained. Many
times those who have been the beneficiaries
of our help have been the
ones to talk about us and say unkind
things and to. abuse and revile us, but
we have always smiled at their littleness
and gone on the even tenor of
our way. Of course, some of them
have made money and we have not,
but we are just about as well off. It
is muc'h more pleasant to say nice
things and to move smoothly along,
but a newspaper owes a duty to the
public and if it honestly and conscientiously
discharges that duty it is
r.: jv. *i -xwc*) v ' n. A r J? 'lyC* il ?c
obliged at times to say something that
will not please every one. When we
/ *; .% v y ^ '
feel like we should say a thing we
say it, always trying to say it a kindly
and friendly sort 'o way and with
no purpose to offend.
If anything should appear in this j
column tnat 'nas we appearance 01 j
being personal it is not intended to be. j
We would not use this column to air j
any personal grievance we migit have j
even if we should have any. The Herald
and News is not an iconoclast or
a pessimist, but has always been, un- j
der the present management, an op-'
I timist and as we have remarked be-j
ifore, during this year' of grace we j
are going to pi ay u.:e giaa game, we,
said it before the war and now that
the war is on we are going to be glad
it is so many miles awav.
We verily believe that the very fact
of the banks putting the lid down So
taut on all loans has kept many a j
farmer from selling some of his cotton
and paying something on his debts for
fear that next spring he would be

to make another crop, and he has felt
that he had better hold on to what he 1
had and be able to run another year.
We notice that State Bank Examiner
I. M. Mauldin says that the banks
are not hoarding their money but have
made liberal loans on account of t?he
low price of cotton. According to his J
consolidated statement the total loans j
Kv oil t V? f\ Of nf A kn wlrn n?? ? *- I

about $60,000,000 and the total'amount
o: money borrowed and notes and bills
rediscounted is about $15,000,000.
There are 338 banks and banking in- j
stitutions, with a capital stock of j
Tlie suggestion that the merchants
give tbeir help two days for Christmas
is a good one and we hope they
will act on it and let the clerks have
the two days, and to at the banks will ]
close and every one take, a little rest, j
We feel sure the business men gen-;
erally will be glad to close from!
Thursday evening and give a three 1
1 day holiday. 'There should be con- j
cert of action in the matter and an
agreement among the business men.
T^e farmers who have their cotton
at home and in their yards had better
look after it and see that it is oil
the ground and it would be better to
.'have it covered. While cotton kept in
the dry will save for years in good
condition, if left on the ground and in
the weather it will damage very fast
and lose more than the gain in the
price is likely to be for a year or more.
What became of all that money Mr.
McAdco was going to put or did put
in the South to help move the cotton
crop. Was it about $350,000,000 or
something like that and the banks
were to get it at 2 per cent. 'Was
not this money used by the mills and

of it for the moving of the cotton

When the re eree's whistle sounded
the end of the game Wofford was two
feet from Newberry's goal. Tr.e features
of the game were the allround

competent ground gainer, . and of

for Wofford. Wofford outplayed Newberry
in the forward passes.

Some days must elapse before this
battle, which promises to prove the
most decisive of the war, is concluded. |
So far all that is definitely known is j
that the German advance tias been j
stcrioed. Some of the German troops j
<:ave been partly or wholly surrounded,
but they still are fighting stubbornly
to break their way through the j
Russian iines, apparently to the north- I
ward, where they hope to join rein- j
:"orcements from Thorn.
In the battle before Cracow the
Russians claim decisive success. During
tue last week they took 30,000
prisoners in that region, which is
taken in Petrograd to mean tteat j

making an occasional infantry attack,

Interesting reports from Field Mar-1
shal Sir John French, covering tfce [
period of tfte battle in Flanders and
the days immediately preceding it
shows that this battle was brought
about, first by allies' attempts to outflank
the Germans, who countered,
and then by their plans to move to
the northeast to Ghent and Bruges,
which also failed. After this the German
offensive began, with the French
coast Dorts as the objective, but this
movement, like those of the allies,
met with failures.
Field Marshal French gives it as his
opinion that the German losses have
been thrice as great as those of tfiie
allies and speaks optimistically of the
