Friday. December 24, 1915.
Governor Manning says lie will'
abide by the decision of the supreme
court in the matter of the removal of
the sheriff of Kershaw county. That
is certainly very nice of the governor,
and the supreme court should be very
grateful to him.
There will be no Herald and News :
printed on next Tuesday. But we will i
print again on Friday. But there is
no reason why you should not come to
f&ee us. The editor will be at the
office every day except one, when he
exnects to so to the old 'home and
spend the day with the folk there. We
will be glad to see you even if you
do not want to pay for your paper. !
The other day there was a little
advertisement in The Herald and News
which called for the answer to he sent
to the office. We do not often talk
shop, but the next morning after the
paper came out, before we got out of
bed, the telephone was ringing to answer
the advertisement. And the answers
have been coming in ever since.
It may not pay to advertise, but if
ithis is any evidence, then we would say
that an Advertisement in The Herald
aid News will bring results.
From what information we can get,
the roads of the county are in better
condition at this season than is usual.
We hope this is true and if the split
log drag is used at the right time the
condition of the roads will continue
to be good.
A gentleman told us the other day
that he thought we just kept some of
ou-r split leg drag suggestions standing
and when the printer called for copyj

split log drag. Well, we do not do that:
exactly, but some time ago we promdsed
not to print a paper without men-'
tion of the drag and we have tried to
keep the faith, though no doubt we j
have failed occasionally, but it has no::

"It seems to us,"The Medium of Ah-:
beville observes, "that now is the op-!
portune time for the farmer who is
renting land to buy land. It is cheaper I
now than it will ever be again, after j
the war is over, and it is foolish for '
a man to continue renting land when it i
can be bought at present prices."
The Medium's suggestion, we wish,!
might be reprinted in every newspaper 1
in South Carolina. Its content is altogether
true. The most serious of all j
economic problems in South Carolina;
Between 1890 and 1900 when the j
price of cotton was low the increase j
in the number of land-owning farmers j
was twice as great as it was between!
1900 and 1910, when the price of cotton
If the depression in land prices
caused by the slump in cotton in 1914
should result in an increase of landowners
whatever temporary hardship
the low cotton prices brought upon ;
the people would be more than offset
This is a good suggestion and is
worthy passing on. What we need in j
this state today is the owning of j
homes by the people who occupy them, j
The Herald and News 'has spoken of
this need almost as often as we have j
of the split log drag, and that is to say ;
that we have had something to;
say of it in almost 'every issue
that we have printed in the last lew
years, it would be a good investment
for the neonle who have money if they !
^ would encourage the farmer to become
the owner of his own home.
We nave time without number:
spoken of the organia .ion of a real j
building and loan association in the!
town which would encourage the peo-:
pie to become the owners of their own
homes and that would help them to
do so. The trouble with all tne building
and loan associations that have i
been organized in Newberry has been
that too many of those who joined I
went in with the purpose of making1
money for themselves, rather than with i
the purpose of encouraging others to'
own their own homes, while at the j
same time making a reasonable rental
for the money of those who already
owned their homes.
'There is a fine opportunity now right i
here in Newberry to organize such an j
association as would help many of j
those who rent to own their own J
hemes, and at the same time make a!
reasonable rental for the money they J
would be willing to put in tne enter-1
prise. It does not pay to put money
in homes in Newberry for rent, and
it would pay the town to encourage the
owning of homes by those who occupied
them. And it would pay as an investment
to organize some sort of an
association that would help and encourage
our people who farm to own
their own farms. We would be glad
see some such organization' started in
Newberry. Who will iake the initiative?
We notice from the newspapers that
| the regents praise Dr. C. Fred Williams
very highly and that everything is in
! fine shape at the hospital for the inI
i sane. WTe are pleased to know that j
everything is in such good condition, j
but the recommendations are about the
same that have been made for manv
years. The legislature gave this year
tvKo+ Viae hpon rp/-?r>mmori/Ipr) frwr
Dr. Williams is a fine fellow and we
ha'.e no doubt a good physician, but
so far as the recommendatfons go as
to separate 'departments for tuberculosis
and pellagra patients that is what
has been recomended for several years
and what the old commission was trying
to accomplish at State Park. The
old commission recommended as* we
recollect that a special levy be made
for the development of State Park, and
that the policy of the state be defined, S
and that the improvements that were j
of a permanent nature be made at j
j State Park. That is if the policy of
! the state was eventualy to remove the
| plant to the country, as was the un-j
derstanding when the land in the
country was purchased. Now it seems
that it has been determined to improve '
the property in Columbia and large i
r. mounts are being spent to that end j
If that was tlie purpose of the legisla-l
ture, it was a waste of the public
money to buy the land in the country
and spend as much money as has been '

convince the legislature that the increase
of salary to the superintendent: i
promised by the governor should be'
made. Well, so far as we are con- j
cerned, we nave no objection to that, j
but the whole thing is wrong and the;
governor exceeded his authority when ;
he agreed to increase the salary. But,
as we have said, Dr. '.Williams is a fine
fellow and personallv we like him verv
much, but he is no better man 'for |
the place than is Dr. Babcock. And if
the governor could get an alienist for
the place at the salary fixed by law
it seems that he might have secured
some South Carolinian' who would have
taken the job.
PAT THE MONEY FOR EDUCATION.
It is understood that several of the
stat'e colleges will ask for appropriations
at the approaching term of the
legislature for additional buildings to
accommodate the increasing number of
students who are applying for admission.
If further state aid is needed
at this time to increase the opportunities
for South Carolina boys and girls
to obtain an education, we are 'heartily j
in favor of the appropriations; even .
+V>/->ncr>i n rli f ir\r> o 1 iovao c?>i/~*n 1 d v D '
to be levied.?Laurens Advertiser.
That sounds nice and patriotic, but'
while you are willing to do so much
for the education of the three to five
per cent of the boys and girls of the
state, w'nat are you going to do for the
other 95 per cent who can never go
to college in the nature of things? ;
The state will probably have to make
direct appropriation for the support of
Clemson, or lend it money, which is the
same thing in effect, and if it does then
it should be made a state institution, j
We are pleased to see that some of the
papers are taking the same position. ;
Our position is if the state is going
to spend more money for education it
shipuld be spent among the schools in
the rural districts, in the encouragement
of rural graded schools and 'high
schools, and thus reach out and xielp
that great body of boys and girls who
can not go to college.
0"he State had a fine editorial some j
days ago on the ownership of homes
by the operatives in the cotton mills
and among other tilings stated that it j
would be more beneficial than child ,
labor laws. We agree with the State
that the ownership of homes by any
people is good for the people and 'the
community. 'When a man owns hi3
own home he feels more interest in
the community and more like he was a
part of it. Home ownership of farms j
would be a great thing for this coun!
try and ownership of homes in a town
would help to .make a better town. But
in ttlhe mill communities there is no
opportunity or inducement to the operatives
to become home owners! The
mills own- the home and the rule is
that the one who occupies it is not
permitted to let his family or any of
them work outside the mill.
For the permanency of our institutions
and the building of a good citizenship
we must have more home owners.
Not only in the mill colonies, but
in the towns and t'ne rural districts
Mr. Lee Holleman, the popular
banker, being asked' yesterday how to
make a "cherry bounce," replied,
"Place a cherry in a gallon of good
j whiskey, and then taste it; if it tastes
I too much of trie cherry, add another
gallon of the liquor." Being complimented
upon his wonderful "mixing
' qualities," hie disavowed the recipe,
] saying that the originator of it was
; our efficient city clerk, Mr. Tobe Scott.
No use to be passing around recipes
! like that now when the first of Jan
uary and the assembling of the legis;
lature are so near.
We see that Senator Carlisle is go
ing to introduce a diu 10 maive me
state absolutely dry and not permit
even a gallon a month to come in. |
That's the way to go at it. If we are !
to have prohibition let us have the real J
thing. Not permit it for any purpose j
