*THE BATTLE CRY OF PEACE/'
i.Manager H. B. Wells of the opera;
house has secured t'nis picture for the.
patrons of his playhouse and at con- i
siderable expense, and should have the I
patronage of the people of Newberry.1
A great many of our people went to I
Columbia to see the picture of "The
Birth of a Nation," and those who have j
seen tnis "Battle Cry of Peace" say j
it excels "The Brith of a Nation" in its j
wealth of interesting material and in
the lessons it teaches. 1*he New York
papers speak of it as the finest picture
tver shown. And tne Union Times, in
our adjoining county, says that it is
V _well worth a dollar to see it.
"It portrays the defenseless condi?
x tion of our country; the consequences,
to whic'n. this condition may lead, and j
the way to avoid these consequences.'' j
It will be worth your while to see |
this picture. It deals with a very live!
question now before the American peo-1
pie. It will be at the opera house two!
nights and afternoons?Friday and
Saturday of this week. j
The legislature meets next Tuesday.
We notice that some of t'ne papers say
the time will be devoted this session to !
perfecting some of the constructive j
measures of the last session. We have
no advice to give except to suggest
that it would be well to repeal some of
the so-called constructive measures
and see if there could be some arrangement
to reduce taxation.
Governor Manning says he is going
to enforce the prohibitios law. This
is well, but it is not the only law t'nat
should be observed. Some of the o5i- j
cials who bold high position should
set the example themselves by observing
the provisions of the fundamental
law and then it would be easier to1
have those lower down to obey the i
law In fact a good motto would be j
less talk about law and order and
more observance of law.
There has been some fine opportu
nity to observe the injunction to use the
split log drag. It would help some of
the roads. j
Every wage earner should join one
of the Christmas savings clubs at one
or the other of the two banks that are
operating them. It is a good thing
and will get you into the habit of saving
a part of your earnings.
We start on a new volume with this
issue. We wish all our readers a
mighty successful year and tb&t all of!
them will -feel like paying their sub- j
'scription right now.
fThe weather is fine, but al.l T.he farm- j
ers say that a little snow and some
freezes would help the ground and
help to get rid of injurious insects. j

For the Sake of History.
Editor of The Herald and News:
Your charming correspondent at
Whitmire in giving an account of the
anniversary of the golden wedding of
.Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Cofield, falls into !
an unintentional error in her history i
in the following statement: "The mar- j
, riage took place December 21, 1865, j
was to have taken place in the spring j
of 1S66, but affairs were hurried up in j
order to have the slaves prepare and
serve an old-time wedding feast before
their emancipation." .. j
I would not ruthlessly mar this de- i
i lightful picture made by the fair artist
but for the sake of history I beg respectfully
to make this correction: As
an historical fact the intention of Pres- '
ident Lincoln to free the slaves was
' ? -J ^ ' ?"? C'ataI A m 1 OCO
liictutr tvnuwii jii ocpcuuuci, xou-?iu
be exact. September 22, 1862?just five
days after the terrible carnage of t'ne
battle of Antietam?and his final purpose
was carried out in his proclamation
issued January 1, 1863, when
he declared the slaves free "as a fit
and necessary war measure for suppressing
the rebellion." In passing,
let me say, this act the Confederate
congress at Richmond declared was
"a gross violation of the usages of
civilized warfare, and an invitation to
an a t-rrw in nc CPrvilA TV2 r " and it W'SS I
no fault of President Lincoln and his
advisors that the 'nelpless women and
! children in the Southern States were
not cruelly and mercilessly slaugh!
tered by the newly emancipated slaves.
So at the time of the marriage, De;
cember 21, 1865, the slaves had
J been set free, whether they knew it or
. realized it or not.
This is just to keep the history

On Christmas evening the children j
who assisted in the recital of Tiiurs- j

a surprise Christmas tree, which was j
