EDITOR'S DELIGHTFUL DREAM.
We had a strange and startling
dream the other night. In imagination
we saw every fellow walking up and
squaring his subscription account and
paying a dollar in advance, and forthwith
we were arranging to take up a
large slice of that billion dollar loan,
"when an insect started to fox trot on
cur nasal protuberance and brought
ois gently back to the sweeter realities
of life. Just why is a dream, anyway?
?Barnwell Sentinel. |
That was a fine dream and it is a
great pnv uul to uave tue leau^auvu.
We are now having a similar dream.
- We are dreaming that during the next;
ten days or lees some five or six hun
cred of those subscribers that we have j
carried through the summer are coming
in and give us only $1.19 each.
We have really carried them through;
the summer and we know they appre- i
ciate it, for many of them have said
so, and now we are giving them a 20
per cent reduction as an inducement to
come right along and show their appreciation.
Just to think of the many little obligations
we could liquidate if five

week and take advantage of our very
'generous offer, and when we made it
we did not know that cotton was going
beyond 10 cents. It will only take
ten pounds of cotton to buy The Herald
and News for a whole year?103 copies
oi a good paper?not the best or the
next to the best, but the best we can
make and we can make some newspaper.
Remember that every subscriber,
whether in arrears or not, can
take advantage of this very liberal offer.
AY'e intend to treat all alike. Better
not put it off, but sit right down and
take your pencil or your pen in li*n<l
arfd write The Herald and News a little
check for $1.19 and send it in the 1
first post. It's a very small matter
ana a very simple process and takes
very little labor. Do it now.
If there is so much trouble about
getting accommodations for young
ladies at Winthrop college it might be ;
very well for us to establish a miniature
edition of Winthrop over here in
York, so as to take care of the overflow.?York
That's just what we have said a
number of times in the past when there
was so much talk and so many lamentations
about the great number of girls
who are knocking at the doors of
"Winthrop every year and who can not
enter because there is no room.'Though*
we did not say it in exactly the same
words, but it meant just the same.
Why not have more schools for t&e
thousands of girls who are not knocking
at the doors of Winthrop, so that
they might be prepared even to knock
if they were not admitted. There are
thousands of girls all over South Car-,
olina who are knocking eve:i for admission
to a high school and if thev
had it they might be in position then
to knock at the doors of Winthrop.
Let us go to work and establish a
miniature Winthrop in every community
in South Carolina, if South Carolina
is' going to educate. More rural
graded schools and more high schools
in the rural districts is the present ed
ucational need of South Carolina.
The tigers in Charleston are not near
so bold and open as we have seen them.
We remember that in the early day? of
another administration the same condition
existed. The furniture' was all;
taken out and the tigers were not so
bold. They soon came back, however.
and went on in the same old way. !
r At this time a plain board resting
on two dry goods boxes serves the purpose
of a counter and little shelves are
fastened to the walls to answer the
purpose of a table. The sentiment now
is growing all over the country against
the use of alcoholic liquors, and we believe
that even in Charleston the law
against the sale will be more strictly
observed. An evidence or, a symptom
of it is the fact that the grand jury
recently returned a number of true
jills against those chargcd with violating
li is but just to say that there is less
flagrant selling by the tigers than we
have seen in Charleston in a good
many days. .We spent a day in the
city recently and we wanted to find
out if it were possible to get a little
hoar Tr was nnt difficult, but as We
have said, the fine fixtures have all
been removed and old boards are used
for counters. We stepped into
a restaurant, and after ordering
a light lunch, we asked the porter
about the possibility of securing a
glass of beer. He said they did not
keep it, but he could get some. We
eave the order and when he served it
he did so in a coffee cup with a saucer.
This, we supposed, was done to keep
MAT SOT INTEREST YOU.
We spent last Sunday in Anderson
with our baby boy, who holds a position
in the mechanical department of
the Intelligencer office. In fact, we
try to find some way to spend every
Sunday out of the city, not that we
dislike Newberry on Sunday, but we
want to get into new scenes and away
from the scenes of the week. The wid
is getting on well and says he is
pleased with Anderson and spends his
time in reading and attending the picture
shows when he is not on duty.
That is not bad.
Anderson is a good town and the
people up that way have the optimistic
i spirit. Sunday as it was, we saw a
j number of people, and one banker told
; us that the farmers were selling cotton

they were due and everybody had
money to spend.
The politicians are busy also. We
saw one congressman moving about
among his constituents, and a candidate
for the job was also traveling
around and shaking hands. The race
in the third the next year is going to
be lively, judging from the activity of
the candidates this early in the game.
Congressman Aiken is moving about
all over the district and Mr. Horton
is pushing his campaign already, and
Mr. Henry Tillman is writing letters
to former .Clemson students and Mr.
Dominick now and then takes a run ,
over to Anderson to make a speech,1
and we suppose the others are also1
moving around. Well, politics is a
great game and we would rather play ,
poker any day, if we had the money to

little city. We always like to stop!
there because there is such a nice
hotel. The Oregon is the best hotel
in ?outh Carolina. And it is the big-1
gest asset that Greenwood has. And
it is kept so beautifully. Everything,
about it is designed for the comfort j
and pleasure of the guests. We heard
Mr. Brmson say once that he tried to
keep his place in such a condition that
when the guests came they would have
a feeling that the house had just been
put in order because they were coming.
Inside and outside the place presents
just that appearance. As you enter,1
if the weather is warm, there is a big
ceiling fan running on the outside, to
cool you, and all around the buildings
is a veritable bower of flowers, and"
the lobby is another place of beauty
and comfort. Then the dining room
and the service is all that you could
want. There were sixty traveling men ;
who made it convenient to spend Sun
day in Greenwood, and all because of
the hotel. It takes two things to make .
a first-class hotel. In the first place
you much have an up-to-date and mod- j
ern building, with all the conveniences,!
and that Grenwood has, and then you !
must have some one who knows how to
run it, and that Greenwood has.
All this may not interest the reader,
of The Herald and News, but we have I
said it principally to say that a hotel
such as Greenwood has is a fine asset
for any town. And only that we had
seme enterprising men in Xewberrv to
build such a building and then we are;
sure some one could be found to run

Since you mention it, it does seem

Buy at home is a good slogan. Patronize
home enterprises is another
good slogan. The college is a home in
stitution in a large measure. The home
papers give unstintingly of their
space to anything that will help the
college. The merchants of the town
make the publication of The Stylus
possible by giving it their advertisements.
The money for its publication
could be kept at home and the boys
who make their living here and spend
their money here could get the little
that is in it for its publication. But
it is printed elsewhere. That's the way
to help your town.
Some of the papers have had a good
deal to say about the Columbia boosters
and the fact that they were out
helping the city of Columbia. Of course
: they were. That was the purpose of
their trip. We were glad to see them
and if they take anv business frnm nnr
merchants that they could supply, then
it is the fault of our own people and
not the Columbia boosters. All of us
need to mingle more with one another
and get better acquainted with one another.
That is the need not only of our
own home people, but of the people of
the 'State. Let ue all boost for our own
town and for our own county and ior
our own State. We are one people and
what helps one will also help others,
i Another time when we feel like vigorously
kicking ourself is when we reflect
that the Durchase of a fpw charge 1
of war stock a year ago would have
put us in the class with John D., Pierp.

There's too much prohibition talk
and too little temperance practice.
And this applies to other things than
liquor drinking.?Pickens Sentinel.
That's what we say and have said
for some time. What we need is more;
practice of temperance and less pro- !
hibition talk. In fact, more practice
and less precept is a pretty good thing
most of the time.
We beg to tender our congratulations
and best wishes to President
Wood row Wilson on the step he con
templates taking some time soon. We
wish him mighty well. He is going to
do the proper thing and then he is
going to take a Southern girl. It is
not well for man to be alone.

I was just thinking a little while ago
as I was Bitting here hammering my old
typewriter, that we certainly had been
enjoying some ot "uctooer s Drignt oiue
weather," "the loveliest month of the
year," during the past few days. This
is Wednesday night as I write and the
sweet sound of the pattering rain on
the roof makes you feel that it is truly
:he saddest of the year. It takes the
sunshine and the rain to make the
eath yield her fruit and it takes the
shadows and the light to make life
worth the while. I think it was old
man Byron wo wrote a good many
/ears ago something like this:
"Admire, exult, despise, laugn,weep?
There is much matter for all feeling:
Thou pendulum betwixt a smile and
And it is true yet. Man is nothing
hut a pendulum betwixt a smale and
a rear. And it takes both to make
life worth while. If we had all smiles
we could not appreciate them and enjoy
them. .'We must have the tears
and the sorrows to appreciate the
mi-e and the joy. With all sunshine
the earth would not bring forth its
fruit in due season. It takes the clouds
and the rains and it takes the dark
days as well as the sunshiny ones to
make life worth living. You must bear
the cross if you would wear the crown
Sometimes we have to tread the wine
press alone. Sometimes we must travel
in the valley and then we can enjoy
me Dngit sunngnt or me mountain
side. But even when we are In the
shawod we must not forget that somewhere
the sun is shining. j
This reminds me that I saw in a
family Bible not a great while ago a
bock mark which contains some advice
when things do not go as you like. 'The
book is, or was, the property of a very
devout and good Christian woman. This
book mark tells you what to read when
VC1 laiu V^ViaUXLJUJliS' V-UUHJ upuii J'Uli. 1
was thinking it would be a good tinje
to give this advice to others and let
them try the experiment. It suns something

chapter of John.
"If you are discouraged about your
work, read the one hundred and twenty

twelfth chapter of Hebrews.
"If you are losing confidence in men,
read the thirteenth chapter of First
"If you can't nave your own way in
i-vr>rvthir> ? Vppti silent rco tho
third chapter of James."
Xow, if you want something: to do
go and get your Bible and read a!! of
these chapters. It will do you good
whether any of the ailments are applicable
to you or not. My pocket book
is always empty. I have read the
thirty-seventh. Psalm. In this chapter
is that famous verse: "I have been
young, and now am old; and yet have
I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor
his seed begging bread." And it is
true. It is a chapter in which is the 7
assurance of the divine hand that He
will care for His own and that the ^
righteous shall not be forsaken. And
then the Psalmist says in anoth-er
verse: "I have seen the wicked in
great power, and spreading himself
like a green bay tree. Yet he passed )

The fact is, you know, if you don't \
know it it is time you were learning, the '
Bible is a great book and if we could
just get the people to read it and follow
what it teaches there would be no *
use for so many human laws. You *
can find in this book a rule of conduct ?
that will keep you in the right way all (
the time if you will only heed what it,
tea^he?. It is so simple and so true
and describes human nature so ac- *

excuse for any one going astray, and *
yet away back in the days when the in- c
spired writers wrote poor old human ^
nature went astray just as it does to- 1

sees in those old days just like there 1
are today.. And I reckon will continue 1
he until the end of the present dis- t
nensation. And there were the liar? 1
and the talebearers and the bearers of J
false witness iust as we ha"e them to- c
day. It will all come right one of thps^ 1
days, because we are told that all c
things work together for good to them 1
