The city of. Greenville recently
awarded contracts for 70,000 square
yards of street paving and 20,000
square yards of sidewalk paving and
extensive curbing. That will give some
streets and some sidewalks and will
also give employment to a number of
people and put some money in circulation.
No town can make very great
progress until it Las some paved
streets, or at least some tnat are passable
roads. How would it do for
Newberry to start a movement for
some street paving? We have a pretty
good lot of sidewalk paving which was
put do^rn some years ago, but we do
. need some paved streets, and we hope
no more paved wit'a brick. There is
a paving which will last jus: as Ion?
and it is claimed to be dustless and is

the selection of a secretary, we are
still of we opinion that the establishment
of this position was a useless
one. Mr. Johnstone, whom we once
J>met, seems to be a -very clever young
man. When we met him he was secretary
of the chamber of commerce of
Greenville. This charity-secretary sal
ary is $1,-00 more than the State pays

and the same tfcat the governor receives.
And we believe the same that

What is war for but to kill people?
Here was a ship of the enemy in tfte
war zone, carrying munitions of war to
kill the Germans. And we believe with
guns with which to defend herself.
Not a very good place for women and
children and neutrals, unless tteey expected
to share the fortunes of war.
War, any way you make it, is nothing
Dut murder. There is nothing legal
about it. If the United States wants
to stop this war sfae could do it very

her cut off all supplies of every description
and the war would soon come
to an end. The amount of guns and
ammunition of every kind and of foodstuffs
that the United States is send
ing to the allies is enormous, and if | j
they could not get it from tfoe United I
States they would soon be compelled |
to stop fighting. But as it appears un- j
I der the terms of international law as ;
| to war, that would not be a position of j
[neutrality. But it is neutral for us to
i supplv one side with all the munitions
| of war that are wanted and cut off j
! cotton and food for the ot'ner. If we ;
j remember correctly, the United States i
| stopped shipment of munitions of war !
to Mexico. TV:e trouble is the great j
manufacturing concerns are making j
loads of money out of these shipments j
ana 01 course it suns uiem verv wen
for the war to continue and let to em
continue to ship.
If we could just have used the split

Jasper jHuiii is a wealthy cotton,
spinner. His son Frederick Las been
educated and polished according 10
approved iasaionable methods; the
elder son remains a plain cotton spinner,
loving his work and his employes.
Frederick espouses Valeria, Ue daugh|
ter of .Laay .v\'estendieigh. It is a union
r of money and title. The marriage takes
"place with great eclat to J-e-aengiu ui
jasper. On the wedding day jasper
learns, to his mortification, tnat Ste- J
pnen has tormed an attachment for I
Martha Gibbes, a factory girl. He first
refuses to consent, but finally, on the
interposition of Frederick, relents on
condition that Martha's behavior shall
be irreproachable for tnree months,
air Arthur Lassel once saved tie life
of Valeria. In the prolonged absence
of uer husband intrigues for her ruin.
Martha discovers his secret and risks
her own happiness to <leat his scheme,
by herself engaging in a flirtation with
Sir Arthur. On the very day when t'he
three montia expired, Martha succeeds
in nnpnin? tiip pvps of Valeria, but is
detected and apparently hopelessly \ |
compromised herself. Valeria generously
explains all and saves the friend
who saves the friend who saved l-er. : >
This play is spirited throughout and j
irreproachable in moral.
