A CHEAT PAPER.
The Fiftieth Anniversary edition of!
The Herald and News is going to be
a great paper from every standpoint.
It is growing every day. We have a ;
number of very valuable articles on i
general subjects that will contain historical
facts that have not been printed
and that will be worth while pre-1

less space taken by any one than a j
quarter of a page. Of course we will
not refuse a less amount. What we
want to say about the advertising is
that it is our purpose to see every
merchant in person and explain tne j
price antl the scope of the paper, but j
we are short of help and it may be a '
physical impossibility for us to see
you, and, therefore, we ask that you
call at the office, as several already
fcave done, and secure your space in
the picture. This paper is going to be
put into every home in the county.
One other thing we desire to say is,
that as this is so near election year
this will be a splendid opportunity for
candidates to reach the people of Newberry
county. We will be very glad to
have them speak to the people through
this medium. Come to see us if we
do not see you. We may not know
what you are thinking about. We will
not accept even for pay any partisan
articles, but the facts about yourself

Another thing, there are a few who j
have promised to write articles for us j
who have not yet sent in their copy, j
We must have this at cnc-e. Also copy j
for advertisements. We have secured '
the help of one or two men in the me- i
chaiiical department so as to get the j
work in that end up with the other.
It is not entirely a money making I
scheme, but since we are going to d^
it we would like to make a little more j
than cost. We have never made any- j
thing out of any such editions that we'

eral. This one, we will be frank, we
expect to make a little out of it. We
believe if will pay you to carry an
ad in it. If you do not think *50, why
uo not give us one. (That is fair. There
is no compulsion anywhere, We know j
we are going to print a good paper
from a historical point of view and
that we are going to give a good and
fair write-up of the town and county,
and we believe when the people see it
they will say so also, and some will be
sorry they are not in the picture if
they fail to come in. That is the rea
son we are giving you tnis notice, so
that you may come in.
After all that we have seen and that
we have read in the editorial columns
of the Spartanburg Journal we were
cnrnrico/1 in lonVinp' nvpr the naDer
the other daty to find a big two-column
ad. of "double strength whiskey," in
which it was claimed that it was so
strong that one quart would easily
make two. If we believed as strongly

Journal does from the editorials, no
whiskey ad. could appear in the columns
of this paper under any circumstances.
In fact, while we do not believe
in the principle of prohibition,
yet we have declined several very attractive
propositions to carry whiskey
ads. in the very recent past.

In regard to the recall election in j
Spartanburg the Spartanburg Herald '
Tl-.ic- mirirmc rftV.vt ta hririo- nrt n "rp- '
call" election in Spartanburg?wha: j
hs 5 it amounted to? What was thr i
real animus? Vho were me citizens j
so anxious for a change just now as i
to push the circulation of a petition '
and solicit signatures? There ha- been
entirely too much gum-shoe business
about it to command respectful attention
by good citizens.
Who wants a campaign brought on j
anu itn uiieiiiii eictnuu
are doings in connection with the city's |
government, that arouse open and:
serious criticism by citizens not afraid i
to speak publicly and declare their po- j
sition in full with reasons given? The;
"recall" is all right when used sensibly i
and in response to strong spontaneous
sentiment, demanding a clean-up of
corruption or a change of policy or a
thorough airing of concealed mal-ad-j

present instance, the recall is merely!
brought into disrepute and brings no;
advantage to the city.
But we thought that lioveornor Manning
had already signed the order for
the election. If that be true you will j
have the campaign. We have never;
been an advocate of the recall for the
very reason, among others, stated by j
the Herald. There is no good in it.1
So long as the terms of our officers
o oc cVmrf nc fhev arp there is no'
need for the recall, and as it is a!

all the time. And there is always and!
always will be a minority that is not
satisfied with any situation or condition.
We do not know about the trouble
in Spartanburg, but we know John
Floyd, and we believe the trouble
comes from those who do not like him
because he is doing his duty.
And then there are those who talk
about a recall for judges. Why thatj
would be awful in the present status
of the human mind. We would have
no justice, and the only thing we would !
have would be one election after another
and turmoil and strife all the!
time. 'The man who was in cfl^c

If the new Appalachian highway can j
just get the application of the splir
leg drag after these rains it will be a
fine road. We have the assurance o- j
Mr. B. B. Leitzsey and several of those
who live on the road that it will be
dragged when needed after the rains.
In fact the people all the way are interested
in good roads and we have no
doubt they will drag it regularly. The
Whitmire people have paid up all tne
private subscriptions made for the pur
pose of building the road, but we understand
that some of the money subscribed
in Newberry has not been paid
and therefore some of the people who
did work on the strength of those subscriptions
have been unable to get the
pay for their work, and there is still
somf little work to be done to the road
besides the dragging of it after the
rains. Every one who subscribed
should pay up promptly. Then the
supervisor snouid maKe arrangement
with people along the way to keep the
road dragged and the holes filled and
the drains cleaned" out and the little
causeways 4n repair. There is no use
to build a good road unless some provision
is made to keep it in repair.
It does seem that the city authorities
should take enough interest in the
college to make a decent street from
the town to the college. College street

Why should not the business men of,

one time one of the be^t county fairs !

vvas the pioneer in the county fair

counties making a success of the county
lair and there is no reason why
Xewberry should not again join the
number that hold fairs. What say \

needs is some live :;>oung man to take
hold and it is a success. Now is tin j
time to make the start. Don't wai:

would be a great thing for the town
and the county.

for the colored npople and congratu- V

was put forth for the betterment

told them the necessity 01 getting to

assured them that so long as such ef- fl

stand at -ftieir backs. A response was
made by Prof. W. W. McMorris.
Next a lecture was given by Miss
Dixon of the Humane society of Boston,
