Kindness to Horses,
New York Evening Post.
Hot weather watering stations for
y the 100,000 horses in New York have
been opened by the New YorK women's
League for Animals. A half
million pails of water were given last
year ac these stations to tired and
thirsty work horses. The best known
^station is in front of tf:e animal hospital
at Lafayette and Bond streets,
"where, in the hot days of midsumj^jnaer,
2,000 horses are watered.
The water is taken from the hydrants,
and there is a liberal supply
of pails, so that the drivers need not
lose any time. A woman member of
league is assigned to each station.
Sponges are provided with which to
l^cool overheated horses, and summer
j&ridles and bits are distributed free
o drivers needing them. Two thou
sand bridles were given away last
The women have prepared leaflets
on ithe care of animals, including
"hot weather rules" for drivers, which
are distributed daily at the water

While every one in Newberry is enjoying
the opening of the park, and
; we are going to Lave a booster chau
tonmio a-opi* hp?innin2 nexi Wednes
i day, I wish I could get all the people
I in this town and county to apply the
I words, and better still the sentiment,
of a little poem I read some good while
, ago, and possibly I have heretofore
| printed i>: in this column, but even
v ough I have it will bear repeating.
It was a greeting from Winnepeg to
some national association that was
meeting in that city and was entitled
"That's Where the West Begins." The
| occasion was a get<o-gether and get'flfonainted
entertainment and band
' concert tendered by the Winnepeg real
estate exchange to delegates of the na-J
| tional association' of real estate ex!
changes. It is said that the author
' is not known. What a pity that we
j should not even know the name of the
1 man or the woman who could write
| such sweet and beautiful sentiment.
; Let's apply it to Newberry town and
county. It would do all of us good to
apply it individually. Just to think
(t'.at wc cculd make Xewberrv the
place described by the little poem as
that's w';ere the west begins, and we
i could if we would, and it would be so
i easy and so much better that we would
, wonder why this had not been such
a place long ago. A little w:ile ago!
' some kind friend sent me a paper from '
a far off State and marked a little
poem, "It's you and not the town,"
but I don't think it was intended as
personal to me, but in is true that it
; is the people who make the community
land the community is what they
! choose to make it. Let us make this
community the place described as
that's where the west begine, and we
can if we will.
Out where the hand clasps a little
jOut where the smile dwells a little
That's w1- ere the 'West begins.
I * j
Out where the sun's a little brighter,
Where the snow that falls is a trifle
Where ?,':e bonds of home are a wee
That's where the West begins.
Out where the skies are a trifle bluer,
Out where friendship's a little truer, ;
Out w: ere everything is newer,
That's where the West begins.
i Out where a fresher breeze is blowing.
Where there's laughter in , every
Where there's more of reaping and
I less of sowing,
That's where the West begins.
Out where the West is in the making,
Where fewer hearts wit'n despair are
Where there's more of giving and less
| of taking,
That's where the West begins. '
Where fere's more of singing and
less of sighing,
Where there's Jhore of giving and less
i And where a man makes friends without
That's where t'iie West begins.
Now, my dear reader, this is not an
! ideal land impossible of attainment. It
all depends upon you. Why shouldn't
! we have more of singing and less of
sighing, and why shouldn't we make
| friends wit'-out half trying. Why I
shouldn't there be fewer hearts with
j despair acting. Why shouldn't there
! be more of giving and less of taking, j
; The old greedy and selfish' nature
needs to be controlled and made better.
It is all because we don't half
, try to reach that uncharted isle where
' Fair lies the land, beheld in dreams, j
I Where roaring guns are never heard,:
.And where the hearts of human kind
i By lethal hate are never stirred;
j Where right prevails above the j
And all men strive with purpose high
To make of life a grand sweet song, j
A little self-examinatioil and then a
little effort to think of the other fel- j
low and what he has and his rights !
, and happiness, and not so much or j
! your old self. It is something like what j
11 heard Dr. Pendleton Jones say in aj
| sermon some months ago, when the |
| president asked all the churches to
I held peace services and for the minis
j t^rs to preach" peace sermons. Dr. J
i Jones said that there could be no
; peace until the individual got rigbtj
eousness in his heart and all the peace
preaeniDg was a mere rarce, until tne
t:r.e individual got righteousness in his
heart. There could be no peace otherwise
and war would go on from
time to time. What we need here in
Newbeiry is to get the individual right
aid then we will h&ve t&e gemmunify
right, for don't forge: that the individuals
make the community. But
what i was after and trying to impress
is that at this time of t e park opening
and the boos- er Chautauqua week
we shot id all make this in reality the
place where the west begins, as aesciibed
in t1 at. little poem quoted
i ??LU ? C. JI is icit IU ra.v,ii iiiuiuuuoi
i [o do his and her part.
Xo\\ then, with this preachment and
gccd a:hice, for which I make no
c arge, just as I did in my episde to
the heathen, I am going to close by
telling you of the good influence of the
sunshinv man. Listen, read:

And remember that there is an old)
but true saying that, "Happiness is
a perfume you can not pour on others j
without getting a few drops on your- j
self. The point in c:is is that you ;

others happy. It is a perfume that
when you pour it on others, it spreads
its sweetness to you, and not otherwise.
The Bachelor Maids club of New-i
berry are making an effort to secure
a fund sufficient to meet the expense
of a community nurse for the town for
a peroid of six months. The work of
a community nurse is not an experi- ]
ment, but nas proven in hundreds of
towns and cities a practical value from
a health and sanitary view point that
can not be estimated. The work
the Bac.elor Maids have done in the
town has been done with the constant:
realization of tne need of such expert!
service and has been greatly handi-;
capped by the lack of the assistance of
a trained nurse in the community.
In making this effort to meet tr.'.e
expense of a trained nurse for com-4
munity service the Bachelor Maids
think that during the first six montlft
the value of such work will be so
clearly and emphatically demonstrated
that the necessary money for toe permanent
support of the work will be
gladly contributed in a systematic way
by the various organipations and the,
public spirited citizens of the town.
Tne duties in detail or tne nurse can
not be described in so limited a space.
She is what the name implies?a Com-;
munity Xurse. She is not expected to j
take permanent cLarge of any case of.
protracted illness, but it is her duty I
to answer all emergency calls from i
any home in town and render expert
Service whenever and wherever needed.
She is a visiting nurse. She goes
from home to home where there is illness
and instructs and assists those
f omes in the care of their sick ones.
It is her duty to keep in daily communication
with the cases where her j
services are most needed and to seen :
opportunities for her work, always j
with actual direction and assistance
as a trained nurse, and with a view;
to improvement in health and sanitary j
conditions in the ::ome and community, i
The value of such service to the com-'
munity can not be overestimated. It'
is proposed that the services will not j
be denied any home within a reason- j
able distance outside the town when
transportation is furnished.
To employ an efficient trained nurse
competent to demonstrate t' e value of j
such work will cost approximately j
3450 for the six months.
The Bachelor Maids club has ap-1
pointed a committee to mane an active
effort to secure the necessary money j
to cover the expense for the first sixmonths
and through the courtesy of
the newspapers make this public an- j
nouncement with the hope that every
citizen in the town will realize the im-,
portance of the work and make some
I contribution. . j
Contributions will be received at t'ne
offices of The Herald and News and i
The Observer, or by any member of
THE BACHELOR MAIDS CLUB. J

THE SOUTH'S COTTOS.
Our local morning contemporary
says: "The Soutjj with its cotton is
the unfortunate soat of conditions, to
a certain extent, but this can not well
be a.oided." The South is worse than
a goat?it is the hewer of wood and
drawer of water to the balance of the;
nation. When t1 e Republicans control I
the national government, they say: I
"There is no use doing anything for'
the South, because it will remain Dem-!
ocratic regardless of what we may do
for it." And when there is a national
Democratic administration, which j
comes into existence only through the j
loyal support of the solid South, it
disregards this section because it
knows no matter how it may be slighted
it will turn up smllling in the next
presidential election with unbroken j
support of tf:e Democratic nominee.
Washington seems absolutely indifferent
as to what happens to the
South's cotton so long as the wheat of
thp West and thA munitions of war
manufactured in the North and East
can find sale at f:igh prices in Europe.
Senator Hoke Smith's presentation
of this subject is unanswered because
unanswerable. It has been ignored,
but that does not make it any the
If other Southern senators and representatives
should range themselves
by his side and speak out as openly
and fearlessly, something migT.t be
If we drift on as we are drifting
and have been drifting, the weight ol
the new crop of cotton superimposed
upon tiie millions of bales of the 1914
crop carried over will sag the price
of the fleecy staple to lower levels
than were readied last fall.
Again we quote from our local morning
contemporary: "What do these
people who dissertate so learnedly
concerning the flagrant violations of
.neutrality, and the infringement upon
our rights by Great Britain, think of
the administration at Washington?
Certainly men of the intellect, courage I
and information possessod by t'-e pres-i
ident and his secretary of state!
would not sit quiet if one-third of the!
alleged mal-practices were actually!
being pefpetrated. If the law of na- \
tions were being violated dv the allies,!
Washington would speak, just as<
Washington spoke to Germany."
The president and the secretary of j
state did not "sit quiet" and we accept
as proof of the "alleged malpractices"
the protests tl:ey have made to England
and her allies against them.
Washington did "speak," but not "just
as Washington spoke to Germany."
Had it spoken to England and her allies
as it spoke to Germany their "alleged
malpractices"?alleged by our
president and secretary of state?
would have been stopped. Not only
that, but their stoppage would have so
cl anged Germany's conduct as to have
removed our cause of complaint
against that country.
If before this year's crop comes on i
the market, the ports of Europe are
opened to couon as our presiucm &nu
secretary of state have said they ought
to be if we obtain our rights under international
lav.-, the price of cotton
/Will go considerably above ten?possibly
above fifteen?cents a pound. If
the present status continues, a verj
low prfc? of cotton may be expected, j
