We had just a little faint hope that
Governor Manning, when he named his
-delegates to the commercial congress
in Charleston, would honor us with an
appointment, so that we would have
an excuse to take a day off and ruu
down and take a look over the battleships
and the battery, but we have
looked over the delegates named from
Newberry and we looked again, but our
name does not appear. But, thanks
to Secretary Snell and the genera]
committee of the Southern Commercial
congress, we have received a very cordial
invitation, and this is added: 'We
-sincerely hope you will be able to accept
this invitation and will be glad
to hear from you at your earliest convenience
in order that we may provide
accommodations and reservation at the

various social iuiicuous. i uauAs.
will try to go if for only a day.
We are pleased to see iliat the railroads
are going to make some improvements
on the union station in
Columbia. For a modern and lately
built station, we think it is the most
inconvenient and poorly arranged of
any station we have ever seen. It is
to be hoped that while thep are at it
again they will do the job right.
We have not seen where any one
has issued a call for the meeting to
organize that connty fair association.
No doubt we have overlooked it and
the meeting will be held .very soon.
Why wait? Now is the time to organize
and get to work on the arrangements
for the next fair. Who is the
live business man that will take the
lead. That is all that is needed. Don't
be bashful when there is opportunity
to serve your county. Take hold and
do something. We will help you and
stand by you in your efforts, for we
know the thing will succeed. i
We drove out to the country place
on Wednesday evening of Mr. 'C. S.'
Suber to attend the marriage of his
oi*lv daughter. Miss Mary Frances, to
Mr. Patrick Bowers Mitchell of Pros-;
perifcy. It was a delightful fall after- i
noon. The weather was all that could
be desired. Cool and crisp and the!
heavens studded with myriads of stars.!

glad to know that they had such appetites,

to eat such good cooking.

Greenwood's town council says- that
every person or persons df-aling in the

their sausage free of tax. Why this
