IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE WHO IS!
IN THE LIMELIGHT.
"We suppose every editor often hears
some thoughtless individual say: "If I
was running a paper, I would print
the NEWS. I wouldn't care who it
might hit. If people don't want to
get into the paper, let them keep out
fWe remember one particular instance
in which a similar remark was
"We had, through the pleadings of
an aged mother and a tearful sister, j
"Killed" a good siory concerning we j
escapade of a rather worthless young
fellow. Bui to that mother and sister
ifce was not worthless, and they prevailed
upon us not to print the item
which would disgrace them in the
And we did not print it.
So we were accused of cowardice
by a certain critic, and were told that

In vain we tried to explain that
many things besides our own personal
Mkes ana dislikes enter into our weekly
labor, il was no use; he said we
should print the news.
Several months later this same man
came sneaking up to our home In the
dead of night to plead and beg us not j
to publish a much worse story in
which he himself was mixed up.
"We had the story, but had no intention
of printing it, for it was one
of those things that it is "best for all
concerned, and for society, to suppress.
And right here we want to
say that, if everyone knew how much
the editor of a weekly paper learns
and does NOT print, he would be
thought a great deal more of than
he is, in most cases.
nnr o-ritir ha^ hear*! that we
knew the details of this story about j
himself, and, with the same unfairness j
that characterized his first utter-;
ance, he at once jumped to the con-j
elusion that we would chortle with i
joty ov?:- a chance to flaunt such a
choice bit of gossip in the faces of our j
Remembering his attitude on the,
other occasion, we let him squirm a bit.\
We reminded him of his former state-;
ment, and intimated that he had at:
? that time opened our eyes. "We would j
tmblish the NEWS. If anyone did:
not want to get into the paper, let j
him keep out of trouble." I
He remembered., He admitted thatj
he f:ad so expressed himself. But he
was wrong, he said. And this case
was different, anyway. Moreover, he
was a prominent man?and married^ ;
and he had a family?and all that sort
of stuff that every editor hears when.
some one gets into trouble. i
' Well, the story was not printed. It
never would have been. But we feel
sure ihat our critic believes that the |
only thing that kept it out was his j
"prominence" and "influence."
No, dear friend; about the only element
that was totally ignored in coming
to our decision was you yourself.;
?Darlington News and Press.
All of which is very true. The greattrouble
with the editor is what not
to print. And many times we have'
to print items which are real news:
which personally we would much pre- j
fer not to print The truth is tfcat it is ;
never pleasant to us to ?Hnt news of j
crime and wrong doing wis ether we;
know the parties charged or not and ^
when we do we prefer not to print,
it, even when the facts seem to j
point strongly to the guilt of the ac- j
cused, because we know somewhere)
there is a mother or a wife or a
daughter who itave faith in the innocence
of their loved one apd wf:o
think that a great injur., is being done
by the editor in printing the news. But j
there are some stories and many things j
that the editor knows which he does;
not print. There may "be some to accuse
him of cowardice but they are
The experience of tfce editor of the
News and Press is not "unusual in
some form or other with any editor
who has been in the "business any
length of time. It certainly does make
a difference whose ox is gored in tin is
sort of thing and a great many others.
That was a fearful outbreak of law
lessness at "Winnsboro on Monday
when the mob shot' into the siheriff'
and' his deputies "who "were carrying
a negro to the court room for trial.
It is almost as bad as the Hillsboro,
Virginia, affair "when the judge and
tfce solicitor and sheriff were killed,
though in that case t':e mob waited
until the trial was over ana the sen- j
tence pronounced. In this case it is.
very probable that the verdict would :
have been guilty and if the law had '
hppTi 1 At taVp its prvnrsp thp lifp nf thp
negro brute would have been for- j
feited and many innocent men would j
not nave suffered and tJ-e trouble that
will follow would have been averted.
It is a horrible exhibition of the brute'
force that remains in us even in this
day of our boasted civilization.
What does 'Supervisor Sample think:
nf nrp'flrnyinp' n snlit rfrap- assnria- !
??"o ^ -o ? j
tion? Or better still what does he;
think of organizing a split log drag
gang for each township in the county j
and requiring tire gang to keep on tne!
roads in that township the entire j
twelve months of the year? It Is thej
only economical plan for having good j
roads. We would have some few good :
roads now if the split log crag had I
been applied to some that have just j
been worked by the gang. Take the !
road from Prosperity to Little Moun- j
tain. Tne gang left ti-at road in fine!
condition but for lack of the use of
the drag it is now almost in worse
condition than it was before it was 1
worked by the sans. It certainly is (
"I am going to die but I did my
duty." These are the words of Sher:'q
Hood as lie was brought to Columbia
yesterday after the unfortunate
affair at Winnsboro. It is some satisfaction
to die with the full assurance
of having done your duty.
?> THE IDLER. <$>
Last Friday morning, the same that!
The Herald and News was printed and |
wi-ich contained my article- about
stopping the birds from singing and.
the roosters from crowing and the!
fog horn at the Mollohon, just about!
4 o'clock?think of it?4 o'clock a. m.!
at that?there appeared at my window !
?a lonely bird and >he began to sing'
as best he could and it seemed that i
: .... i
the music had a plaintive no>;e about j
it. And then soon the roosters be- j
gan to crow and tfneir voices seemed
to have a hoarseness or a sadness1
about them that was unusual and then j
the fog horn at the Mollohon began!
to sound and it was longer a ad more!
sad toan usual. I could not at first!
understand what it all meant, but noj
/^nnht thov "had all ViPflrH ahnnt "wTiflt !
I had written about stopping tfre birds
from singing and the roosters from j
crowing and the fox horn at Mollohon
from calling to labor and had come to
beg that it not be. It was unusual for!
me to wake at that hour and hear
any of tfte sounds but on this occasion
I <3id hear them. I am a dreamer
you know and it must have been in'
answer to one of my dreamy thatj
tinese pleas came forth that these
creatures be not interered with by
the fruitless efforts of man or woman
to regulate everything to f:eir
way of thinking. Now so far as I am'
concerned they may continue?the
bird to sing, the roosters to crow and
t^e fog horn at the Mollohon to continue
to call from slumber to If.oor.
They all have a pleasant sound to i
me and even on this occasion did j
not interfere witfm my repose in the1
least. This bird that came to my win. '
dow was not the sweet singing mock- j
ing bird but it did the best it could,
and no more could be expected of tt e;
angels. The only persons from whom
more might be expected would be;
those wiho ar? trying to regulate j
everything by human statute. And,
they would fail. And do you know \
that it is daylight at about 4 o'clock?;
During these war times it would ^
not be inappropriate to quote whatj

and the peasant. It is an epic:
The Warrior and the Peasant.
(By Robert G. Ingersoll.)
A little while ago I stood by the j
grave of the old Napoleon?a magni- j
ficent tomb of gilt and gold, fit al- j
most for a dead deity. I thought of \
the orphans and widows he had made j
?of the tear's that had been shed for j
his glory, and of the only woman who j
ever loved him, pushed from his (heart
by the cold hand of ambition.
And I said I would rather have been
a French peasant and worn wooden
sfcoes; I would rather have lived in a
hut with a vine growing over the door,
and the grapes growing purple in the
kisses of the autumn sun; I would
rather faave been that poor peasant
with my loving wife by my side, knitting
as the day died out of the sky?
with my children upon my knees and
their arms about me.
U would rather (have been that man
and gone down to the tongueless silence
cf the dreamless dust than to
have been that imperial impersonation
of force and murder.

times to read and think a little more
about tJ'iese t'lings. I think this is
taken from a Greenville paper, possibly
a paper called the Piedmont. I

Some one was telling me that work
has begun on the park. That rejoices
my heart. A park is what I have 'been
working for for these many years. Let
every' one unite to make an ideal
place in more ways than one. It
siiould be a playground tor the children
and a resting place for the older
ones. I hope to live long enough
to enjoy some of it myself. Now

In Honor of the Bride-Elect,
On Monday afternoon Mrs. W. H.
Hunt and Miss Lucy McCaughrin entertained
the members of the Emery
rirrlp and a number of other friends
at the home of the former on CalLoun
street. An interesting feature
of the afternoon was a kitchen
shower for Miss Moriat Martin, one
of the charter members of the club,
whose marriage to the Rev S. T.
Reid, of Atlanta, Ga.. will occur on
tie 16th. The many and useful articles
for the kitchen, which were a
complete surprise to the recipient,
were brought in on trays by little
Frances Harper, Albert McCaughrin
and /Martin Crawford of Lancaster
dressed as cooks. Each gift was accompanied
by a wish, the reading of
which proved very interesting. During
the afterioon iced tea, sandwiches
and mints were served.
Another deiightful affair for Miss
Martin w-as We hancikercnier snower
which Mrs. J. N. McCaugftrin and
Mrs. W. C. Brown, Jr., gave on Tuesday
afternoon at the home of Mrs.
McCaughrin on Calhoun street The
many handkerchiefs were pinned on
the dress of little 'Sarah Martin, niece
of the bride-elect, and presented to
her in this unique manner. The gifts
were accompanied by bits of advice
and many good wishes for a ihappy
wedded life. The pleasures of the afternoon
were brought to a close with
the serving of iced tea and sandwiches.

SOTICE TO 1>ELI\QIEVT TAX
The treasurer of Newberry county
ana tne clerk ana treasurer of the
town of Newberry have placed in my
(bands sxecutions against those parties
who have not paid taxes due by
tJ:em for the year 1914.
The last legislature passed a law
requiring all sheriffs to make their
nn&i returns on tax collections Dy
July 1st. It will be a matter of impossibility
to call upon every delinquent
more than one time. The costs
will be less if the taxes are paid at
my office. Therefore, I urge all delinquents
to settle by June 19th. After
that date I will be compelled to Degin
