E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Friday, October 3, 1915.
We direct the reader's attention to
l*ige three of this issue of The Herald
end News. It contains the advertisement
of twenty-nine business firms
of this progressive town. They invite
the public to come to their city and be
convinced that they have just what you
want and that they will treat you right
when you come. They have what you
need and want and will sell it to you at
a very reasonable profit.
Practically every business firm is
represented in this page. If you want
to sell chickens and eggs and butter
they will buy it from you at the best
?rice that the market aftords. If you
want to sell cotton and cotton seed
they will buy that at the top of the
market. Then if you want to buy
clothes or-hardware or millinery or
shoe? or fertilizer they will sell you
that. On this page you will find the
names of the firms that handle these
various lines. Then there is medicine)
and drugs?:but tie people down that j
way don't have much use for these
things?but if you do, you want to |
know where to get them. Read this
page and be convinced. Then sometimes
the people down that way want
|o borrow a little money. iThere are
the banks ready and willing to let
l?ou have it and at a reasonable rate
'X)f interest and on such time as will
satisfy. And then all the people down
that way have money to keep and the
best place to keep it is in the banks,
and the bank6 of the town are safe
and will take pleasure in caring for
-- your deposits, so that all you have to
do when you want to buy The Herald
and News?and everybody wants it?
is to sit down and take your pen in
iand and write a check payable to The
Herald and iNews for $1.19?provided
you do it before the 15th of October?
and you buy it for one wnoie year o:
tweLve months. After that date it
will cost you more. And then you get
the news. Come right along now and
let us all he happy. And the State
warehouse will take care of your cotton
if you don't want to sell.
Mr. Clarence Poe, editor of the Progressive
Farmer, writes a long article
advising the farmer to hold his cottrti-.
fru- 19 /lontc thA rmiinri and sives
his reasons for the advice. The Herald
and News published the article in last
issue and we ask all the farmers and
merchants and bankers who have not
read it to do so. It is worth your
while. Co-operation is what is needed
"just now. It is what The Herald and
News has been preaching all the fall.
It is what will save the country of
which we are part. It looks now as if
cotton is going to 12 cents pretty soon.
it is already aDove iu cents.
Since the above was written cotton
lias gotten to the 12 cents mark
and will be there pretty soon.
The merchant who does not advertise
when times are good, because "he
don't need to," and does not advertise
when times are bad, because "their
ain't no use," is just as smart as the
Arkansas citizen who didn't put a
roof on his house. Two of a kind ?
That is a true saying and worthy of
ell acceptation. Watch the store of
the merchant who advertises judiciously
and properly in the local papers and
you will see who is doing the business.
One of the speakers at the college
opening made the statement that the
merchant who did not get the spirit
of the age would have to go out o?
-usiness, or words to that effect. The
spirit of this age is publicity, and the
way for the merchant to get the righi
;;ind of publicity is to use the columns
cf the local papers. And the local papers
in Newberry sell their space so
heap that there is no excuse for any
merchant not to use freely of this
..leans of keeping his name before the
; ublic, as well as the wares he has
Governor Manning wants to amend j
i'.ie warehouse law so as to provide j
hat managers of the warehouses in j
ie state system be disinterested, par-!
i.'es, neither owners of the ware-'
houses or the cotton stored therein."
This sounds pretty good to some people;
but to us it looks like a dagger
thrust at the whole business. The
system as now established is being
A ^ i - '7 . ? / , A w* Ar\ t A n AH An
DUUI. up Oil lUfcJ IX1U ULCiKCil L IV/ wciv/n
producers to build their own warehouses
and become their own custodians.
There is no other means of
building or acquiring state warehouses,
except maybe by a big state
i appropriation. Then, as we see it,
there Is no better custodian of the
cotton than the owners thereof and
the owners of the warehouse. The
bonds required of these custodians
make the cotton safe. It seems to us
that if the producer were not allowed
lo oe mieresiea m uie ?ai cm/uor
either as part owner or patron, the
hole thing would have to fall to the
ground and the idea w-ould become a
nullity. If Governor Manning is really
in sympathy with the objects of the
warehouse law, it seems to us that
the public is entitled to additional explanations.?Ycrkvill?
Governor Manning's speech made
(about the same impression on us. It
rather seemed as we read the speech
that the recommendations he said he
would make would he against the system.
Then if he appoints all these
graders and inspectors it will create
another army of office holders that will
not help the system.

<S> THE IDLES, <S>
"Some women are so prone to talk
that they shoot off their mouths with
out even a target to shoot at." I rrad
this little quotation in some paper tne
other dtLy. And he was a brave editor
to publish such a comment or such an
observation or such a criticism,, and
then continue to live in the same community.
I suppose there were none
of those women who lived in that community,
and the comment had no perI
sonal and local application. But, now
I really and truly, there is a great deal
| of the truth in the comment, and fact
! ii, sometimes 1 think some women and
| some men shoot off their mouths regardless
whether there is a target in
sighr, and without care of whether

side or one of those scattering loads,
and hope that it will strike somewhere,
I and more frequently indifferent as to
I where or what it may hit. They jusi
I love to revel in the pleasure of talk|
ing about 'some one, and the trouble
I is that the talk is generally uncomplimentary
and without regard to its
truth, or even the suspicion of truth,

here for some wise and humane purpose,
and some time in the far and
dim and distant future it may be revealed
the good purpose they are serving.
They suit me all right. I like
for them to talk about me, because
when people cease to ^alk about me
then I begin to fear that my race is
run, and there is no more work for
me to do here, and I am too strong
and vigorous to quit work yet. I am
not writing an essay on the tongue. I
have already written several very fine
ones. But at a matter of fact we all
do talk too many idle words. And
when we shoot off our mouth with no
target in sight we are talking idle
words and sometimes when we think
we see the target they are the most
idle and mean of idle words. But the
power of speech was given to us to
use just like other gifts of nature, and
if we abuse that power it will do us
more harm than the ones wre endeavor
to injure. Let us try to bridle and
controi the words that we shoot from
our mouths and all will be well. Have j
a good target and aim well.
That reminds me that I read in some j
newspaper not a great while ago a j
little article on "War and Newspapers" j
?I think it was the Intelligencer?in
fact I am pretty sure it was the An- !
derson Intelligencer. It is pretty good
and tells a pretty true story according
to my observation, and I am a pretty
close observer, though I never say
much about it. The story ran something
like this. I guess from reading
; it that someone must have been pitch

I notice from the papery that the
Civic association is going to give a
turkey supper for the benefit of the
park on Friday mgni ana auernooii.
Every one in town should go to thai
entertainment and spend a few dollars.
In fact every one in town should conj
tribute a small mite to the park every
week and the thing couid soon be put
in fine shape. There are a few other
things I wv/uld like to see the Civic
association get behind. If the women
determine to do a thing it is done
right now. The only trouble is to get
them to determine to do it. How about
the cemetery ? Old Rosemont certainly
needs the attention of some one. It is
in a deplorable condition. And that
fence! Have you seen it? If not, go
along the road some time and look at
it. It is a beauty. It would do credit
to?well, what shall we say? Suppose
you go over and see it for yourself
and then drop me a post card and tell
me what you think about it- And then
take a drive through the beautiful
driveways. There are no walkways.
Why could not the -Civic association cooperate
with the trustees and put the
place in such condition that it would
be a credit to a Christian community.
Just like I said, they can do it if they
only will do it. I know that there are
very few women in this town who
have not some very tender ties that
bind them to thfs place, and I know
they would all like to see it in better
s:.ape. It can do those who rest there
no good, but it certainly would make
the living feel much better. And it
would be a credit to our civilization
to have the -place better cared for. ^

It is beautiful to see the optimistic
spirit which pervades the community

that you can not only see it, but you
can feel it and hear it. Of course you

Hut better times are here and ahead
lor the farmer of this section. He is
being giveu advice.' And some of it
mignty good advice. Some of it he
will take and some of it he will not,
and it is wr\!l. There is one thing he
should remember, and tbat he should
have iearm c- in the recent past, and
that is if he wants to prosper and
be independent he must fill his cribs
and his tarns and his smoke houses
j with com and hay and meat raised on
his farm. Yes, smoke houses, I have
no doubt there are young farmers in
this county today who do not know
what that term means from actual experience
and observation. Well, the
sooner they learn the better it will
be for them and the country. Raise
your own hog and hominy is an old
saying, but very true all the same,
and a mighty good slogan to adopt,.

Church of the Redeemer.
(Rev. Edward Fulenwider Pastor.)
Nothing preventing, the following
will be tne program of divine services
.i? ii? n ?
at tlie Lutneran unurcn 01 me xveueem- j
er next Sunday:
10:15 a. m., Sunday school. The
motto of the school is, "Every member
of the church a member of^ some department
of the school."
,11:15 a. m., the morning service.
The subject of the sermon will be
"The Unfinished House." Text, Luke
14:29-30, "Lest haply, after he hath
laid the foundation, and is not able to
finish it, all that behold it begin to
mock him, saying, This man began to
build and was not able to finish."
The unfinished house is a descripi
tion of most men's lives. Most of us
feel that we are living in an unfinished
house. This is why people so often
ay, "I wish I could live my life over
again." Many practical thoughts will
be given in the sermon.

i 7:30 p. m., evening service of song
and prayer. The pastor will preach
a special sermon to working people

PEMiLTY FOB MURDERS
Joe Molky, Tom Griffin, Meek Griffin,
>~els:>n Briee and John Crosby
A record for legal executions in
South Carolina was established yesterday
when fiye negroes were put to
depth ht th: Slate penitentiary for
tae murder of John Q. Lewis, a Confederate
veteran, f.-orri Chester county,
and Prentiss Moore and Guy Rogers,
two young white boys of Marlboro
On? hour and ten minutes were required
to execute the criminals. A
general sigh of relief went up from
executioners and prison officials alike
when the five bodies, wrapped in their
winding sheets, had been "stacked" on
their couches in the little anteroom
of the death house, which had been
cod verted into a veritable morgue.
Meek Griffin. Tom Griffin, John. .Cros'iv
and Nelson Brice were executed
for the killing of the aged Mr. Lewis,
while Joe Malloy paid the penalty for
the murder of the twct young Marlboro
county boys. The crime for
which the first four were convicted
was committed April 24, 1913. The
Marlboro county crime was committed
Thanksgiving day, 1911
The negroes did not confess. Three
died protesting their innocence. The
remaining two had nothing to add to
'that already said," which was an affirmatfon
of previous denial of guilt.
