salary of the assistant attorney general
of $100, but voted for the increase
in the salary of the superintendent of
the asylum of $2,000. Mr. Mower voted
against the increase in the salary for
the assistant on the ground that the
assistant should not receive as much
salary as the attorney general. Mr.
Chapman on the ground that he was
opposed to the increase in salaries. On
what ground he voted for the increase
in the asylum raise we do not know.
The assistant attorney general did
not ask a raise in salary though the
was about 51 to 63 for the raise
What has become of the A. R. Presbyterian,
;T.he Greenwood Journal,
and The Herald and News on the tax
question since we showed them the
rate was lower in Abbeville last year
than in recent years. It seems that
they might, at least, correct the erroneous
impression created by their
articles on the subject.?Abbeville
lWe dunno what you mean. If we
have said anything we oughtn't to
have said, we ask your pardon, sir.
If we have done anything we should
not have done, we implore your forgiveness
and assure you it was not
intentionally done. If we have left
^unsaid something we should have
said, or failed to do something we
should have done, let us know what it
is, please, and if not inconsistent with
our preconceived ideas of right, we
will try to do it. If The Herald and
News has ever said anything about
the tax rate in Abbeville county we
do not recall it, but, you know, we
say so many things, and possibly
some we should not, that it is a little
difficult to recall all of them. We do
not know about the A. R. Presyterian
and the Journal, but The Herald and
News pleads not guilty.
We notice from the Greenwood Journal
that Greenwood has a good roads
a <*s/vM?tion and that at a meeting the
other -day it was decided to build some
roads out from Greenwood so that
people might the more easily come
into Greenwood. That will be worth
more to Greenwood than almost any
other thing she might do. There is
nothing that contributes so much to
the upbuilding of a community as the!
building of good roads and nothing I
win hplo Greenwood as much as the j
building of some roads so that the'
people may the more easily come to
town. 'A good roads association that
"was awake and alive would be a
good thing for any town. It takes a j
little money to make one that is worth
while but the amount from each would
be so small compared with the bene- '
fits to be derived.
This is a fine time to use the split,
leg drag on roads. It is a great ma- j
chine and costs little to handle. Usej
it and have good roads.
Don't forget, please to send that,
dollar for your Herald and News
while you can get it for a whole year
for that amount. After March 1 the,
price will be $1.50, and all who are :
in arrears, unless some arrangement,
is made, will be taken from the list, j
J\Ve want you to remain a member of
our family, but we want only those
"who are willing to do their share foi
the proper support of the family. Your
share is the price cf the subscription
and just now- we are givng one-thrd
off in order to place you in good stand

this little matter now before it is too
The rcids of Spartanburg must be
to the bad. The Herald has been
pleading i.iost eloquently and sensibly
in an effort to get the legislative delegation
to do something to relieve the
situation, but all its appeals seem to
fall on deaf ears. Brother, didn't you i
know that this was election year, and
the war whoop the coming summer
must be we reduced your taxes. And
it is too short a time now to get any

election. There is no wiser or more
economical measure the legislature
could provide than some means by
which the roads might be improved.
But listen, dear reader, to these
| plaintive notes from a recent issue of
i the Herald:
I Anyway, if the delegation is not go!
ing to give us roads they might make
provision for equipping the highways
1 with wireless, so that floundering trafi
| fic may communicate with the shore.

FOR 0>E DOLLAR.
As we have stated before, when The
( Herald and News resumed publication
; last February, after a brief suspension
we did not feel that it would be wise
to commence at once the old rule ol
' cash in advance, and then, besides, at
, that time business was fearfully dull
and the people were blue and remainec
1 very much in that frame of mind until
the close of the summer. We decided.
! and so stated, that we would not take
: any names off our list until the fall,
| at least, and that if any one did not
care for the paper or intend to paj
for it please to notify us and we would
: take the name off the list. We have
! been very much gratified that so few
! discontinued. In fact we did not lose
But now times are better and more
money is in circulation, and we muse
be paid the small amount that is due
us. or we can not continue to send the
! paper. In looking over our mailing
; list on Friday we found that in the
: short period of ten months we had ac|
cumulated about 800 whose date still
. bears the figures 1915. We have
j thought about a contest, but out ex
| perience with contests is not eatisj
factory. If you get the contestants in!
terested you get the subscribers and
collect the money, but by the time you
pay the premiums and the commissions
to the managers there ie nothing
left, and so we abandoned that idea.
To get some one to collect the back
dues will cost over 30 per cent. So
that is not practicable.
We want to get on the cash basis
again. In fact, it is the only way to
handle the subscription list of a counTV?

accumulated at one time once before
over ten thousand dollars on back subscription,
and. charged it off at one
time. We can not afford to do that
any more, but we find that in
montns we have accumulated abcT.
$1,200 on this account. We can not
stand that either. We know that our
subscribers will realize the force of
what we here say.
We do not want to part with any of
you. We love you as a member of the
family. We do not desire to be understood
as being inclined to put a premium
on getting in arrears. But we
want to give you an opportunity md
an inducement to get in advance again.
So we have decided to give you the
paper for one year for OXE DOLLAR.
if it is paid by or before March 1. 1916,
at 6 p. m. This applies to old subscribers,
who are in arrears, and new
subscribers and all others. <\\\ want
to treat every one alike and be fair
to all. So even if you are paid in advance
you can get a year for OXE
DOLLAR. We will not take a subscription
at this rate for less than a
year nor for longer than two years.
Ai'rcr the first of March every name
on our mailing list that has not paid
ai least to 1'JiO will l>e stricken off.
There will be no re spec tor of persons
on account of anything. We uo this
.0 give those who have gotien behind
an opportunity to catch up, and in
order to be fair to those who are in
advance they can have the same rate
of one dollar, if paid between this time
and March 1. Send a dollar bill, a dollar
check, a dollar money order, any
way so you get us the dollar. And get
it now. We would not despise even a
silver dollar or four quarters or two
halves. Don't postpone this. Do it '
now. j f jg[J
We are working with a small force '
and can not get out and collect suD-1 *
! scriptions, aid it does not pay to send i i
j out collectors and besides, under this }
offer, we are proposing to gi've the |
' subscriber the commission we would j
! pay the collector. Whp not earn it and j
earn it now? This is the only oppor;
We are going to give you a better :
paper than we have ever given and
! that means some paper. This is going
,) to be a political year, and while The
i Herald and News is not going to be in j
' Dolitics or tote the skillet for any of J
j the politicians, we expect to print the i
I news and give all sides a fair and
; square deal, and tell the truth. as we
I see it. We will comment and criticize
j as we think the public welfare de
mands of a newspaper. Always doing j
j so in parliamentarv language and j
'j treating those who do not agree with j
i us fairly and giving them credit for '
honestv of conviction.
But the point now is this is an op- j
i portunity for you to get a real news
| paper for a whole year for only one
