HOW TO SAVE TIME.
In these days when everybody is using
the telephone and the mail for business
purposes, we notice that a large
r.umber of cur subscribers are using
the mails in renewing subscriptions.

faces in our office, but we realize that
you use the telephone or the postoffice
for the same reason that we do?to
eave steps, and we are perfectly willing
to have you send us your orders
But in renewing your subscription
this year, we wish to inform you that
you can, if you wish, secure four magszines
by subtracting one cent from the
regular price of The Herald and News.
Look over the remarkable club of high
class magazines we offer you in connection
with The Herald and News for
only $1.49 a year?nothing extra, as
you may be inclined to think when you
look over the advertisement and see ;
the publications offered?but $1.49 pays
a year's subscription to .'The Herald
and New; and to four magazines besides.
Drop us a line right away?so that
Nwt can ^et your r.ame in our next or
cier to the publi>hers. You ought to
get every bit of your reading matter
from ua while this bargain offer holds

We are afraid that our good young
friend, Bell, of the York News misunderstood
what we had to say about
another Winthrop college at York that
he spoke of in his paper. What we
meant to emphasize was what we said:
"More rural graded schools and more
iiigh schools in the rural districts is
the present educational need of South
We did not intend to be understood
as advocating the building of more col-'
leges by the State. In -eur opinion we
have colleges a plenty. And the point

the many girls who were reported as
v knocking at the doors of Winthrop for
entrance, there are many times that
many who were not even given the j
advantages of a high school training!
and possibly some of those whom it was
claimed were turned away from Winthrop
were not sufficiently advanced to
enter college, even if there were plenty
of room, because they had had no high
No, my young friend, we do not need
-any more State colleges, either for boys
or girls. What we need, if we are
going to educate by the State, and we
are, is more and better equipped rural
graded schools and high schools, so
that the boys and girls who can never
go to college, and those who can, may
be prepared for the duties of life as
well as for entrance into college.
While The Herald and New? is offering
to give several magazines in connection
with the paper we desire that j
our subscribers and friends shall un-j
derstand that we are not going to let
up on1 whit in the making of the very
best paper that we know how to make,
Dossil Iv not the best, or even the next |
best in Souta^Carolina, but the best we
know how to make, and if hard work
and close attention to the job with
what little ability we have in that direction
will count for anything, you
may expect iThe Herald and News to be
better than it has ever been. Send in
your -subscription while the opportunity
lasts of getting it for less than
the r- guiar price and four magazines
thrown in for good measure.
We notice that Congressman Lever
says that what we need now is a system
of federal warehouses. Well, we
suspe t he knows what he is talking
about but we would like to know v hy
we cc ihi not have State managed and
controlled warehouses and at the same
timp c ire isame amount of money
on the cotton stored by working
I through the national and federal re
serve banks. fWe suppose it is coming.
but somehow we do not just like this
idea of so much federal control and
federal inspection and federal supervision.
We notice that Governor Manning

are going out West to study the boll
weevil situation. We do not see anv
mention of Commissioner Watson aone
of the party. We should think thai
this study would come directly undei
iii= department and that he should be
in the party. Possibly it is the purpose
that Clemson college shall overshadow
the State department of agri.
culture. And maybe Col. Watson coulr
' not go.
! THE GET TOGETHER SPIRIT.
In looking over an old copy of The
Herald and News of date April 30, 1909,
we find the following editorial comment:
In a speech recently delivered by
Dr. S. C. Mitchell, president of the
South Carolina university, Dr. Mitchell
made the following statement:
"How have all these signal results
in social progress in South Carolina
been achieved? The secret lies in the
co-operative effort of the commounty
* * * * The individual may be weak;
the community is strong, almost omnipotent
when thoroughly aroused in
the interest of progress. The highest
lesson which we are learning today
is that of co-operation in all efforts
for social progress."
We have so often endeavored to em
phasize the truth contained in this
statement that we are pleased to
have it expressed so strongly by another.
There is no doubt that the secret
of success and growth of any community
lies in co-operation. Individual
effort is all right but in order to
keep pace with the development and
progress of today every community
must have cc-operation of effort.
We -copy it now to show that the
doctrin of The Herald and 'News has
always been for more and better cooperation
and the need is as great now
as it was when we wrote the article
quoted. We have the best town and
the best county in the State. lW<hat we
need today is more co-operation and
more getting together for the general
r.-cl fa re
There is better spirit and more eviJence
of co-operation at this time than
there nas been in many years. There
is less fault-finding and carping criticism
than we have known in Newberry
in a good man v moons. One reason
is business is better and we all feel
better. We hope the"e conditions may

In this day and time, modern railway
construction avoids the grade
crossing, resorting to every means
possible to keep taem from happening
at all, but since many of the railroads
were built in our part of the country
a good many years ago, before traffic
on either the railroads or the
dirt roads was anything like so
aeavy as it is today, and at a time
when construction costs had to be
kept down, we still have a multitude
of these dangerous places that should
oe eliminated as rapidly as possible.
President Colfax Harrison, whose
ideas of railroading are bringing about
many changes in the policy and customs
of'the Southern railroad that are
being more and more appreciated by
the public, is against grade crossings
and announces that the Southern is
now anxious to eliminate as rapidly
_ i n t_ ?i. TT
as possiDie an sucn places. ivir. narrison
says, according to the Charlotte
Observer, that on every bit of construction

or recently completed, involving
the relocation or double-tracking

expense for bridge or .subway
crossings. He says this policy will be
continued in the fututre. In this work
of grade crossing elimination, the railroads
should have the co-operation of
county authorities in every section of
the State.?Spartanburg Herald.
The Herald and News is and has
been just as strong against grade
crossings as -Mr. Harrison and Mr. Livingston
is also against grade cross
j ings. and so far as the grade crossings
i in this section are concerned Mr. Livi
| ingston has proved his faith hy his
, works. Several of the crossings be.
tween Little Mountain and Prosperity
have been eliminated. There are some

and Xewberry that should be

Priming a Dyru
To properly prime a dynamite or
farm powder cartridge four thinsrs are
essential?the cap, the fuse, the cartridge
and a crimping tool. The meth
od in itself is very simple.
First crimp the priming cap about
the fuse, using the crimping tool as

a diagonal hole in the cartridge with
the end of the crimping tool, making
the hole deep enough to entirely bury
the cap. Insert the cap into this hole
and tie the fuse to the side of the car- i

of every mile between the two towns .
and then it should be remembered that ;
.ne:e are two tracks to cross, which
doubles the danger. If Mr. Livingston 11
-nd Mr. Harrison would join forces '.
we are sure they would have the co-;
. operation of the county officials, and :
we believe that the property owners
| would see' the advantage to them and
1 co-operate also.
All of the grade crossings between
Newberry and Prosperity could be re- I
moved without great inconvenience to''
; any one and small cost of labor and
j other expense, unless the land owners
should want an exorbitant price for the
right of way, and we do not believe
they would be unreasonable because
! the removal of these dangerous grade
j crossings would also benefit them. In
fact, the road could be so located that

Mr. Cal Singley's, and that would be
i the only crossing between Newberry
I and Columbia except the one at Broad
i river, near Columbia. This of course
1 applies to the main highway. But th3
road could remain right through the
town of Prosperity and there would be
only three crossings between Newberry .
i and the Broad river.
Three were two taken out in front
of Mr. J. B. Kempson's residence by Mr.
Livingston. Mr. Kempson was in Newberry
the ether day and he said he
would not have the road back where
it was for anything. He likes it much
better and then the two dangerous
crossings are removed and his chick- J
ens are in less danger from the deadly j
auto and he lines the arrangement
much better. So it would be with
others who may have a feeling that
they do not want to see the old road
changed. Mr. Harrison and Mr. Livingston,
