A JOKE BOOK
rrhe friends of Governor Manning
or some persons thereunto duly authorized,
according to .newspaper reports,
have gotten out a thirty-one
-page pamphlet entitled, "Some Reasons
Why the Governor Should Be
Re-elected." We take it for granted
that the majority of the reasons
wfcich occurred to the writers have
been set forth with more than "due
care under the circumstances."
The little pamphlet, is not entirely

is more than what it purports to be.
It is a joke book cleverly gotten up
toy the authors. Interspersed with
the many imaginary reasons discovered
as to why the governor and nobody
else should be elected, are
a number of good jokes, which ti?
carefully inclined may work out.

out the jokes and in eliminating them
in guessing which one of the governor's
story writers got off the particular
joke found. Prizes may he
awarded to the person finding the
most jokes and guessing who wrote
them. 1
In- these guessing contests, in order
to give the guessers a start it is
usual to take one of the puzzles to
i>e solved, solve it for the guessers,
and thus put them on the right track.
In line with this ancient' custom we

We have jiot had the pleasure of
receiving a copy of this "Joke Book,"
but we are- still hoping that we may
have that, pleasure. We published the
reriey, of it that the Columbia correspondent
of the News and Courier
sent to that paper. If it affords the
pleasure and the amusement during

Col. Bradley is not alone in getting
off the aphorism that "he is not
a politician." If we are not mistaken
our local contemporary said something
about the same, or words to
that effect.
We hope our friend, Caldwell of tlie
News and Courier, will send us a!
copy of the "Joke Book." We are a j
little short on jokes that are fresh, j

Greenville coanty lias fifty eight
schools that receive State aid. Of
these fifty six are rural graded
schools. The total amount of State j
aid going to Greenville county is $14, j
000. Newberry gets aid for seven i
schools, a total of $895.00. Until j
three years .ago Newberry got State j
aid only for two high schools and the j
little amount for building purposes, j

Three years ago six rural graded

mill tax has been voted in several {
other districts but the requirements
for the rural graded school have been
met in only two or three other
schools. We should have several more
rural graded schools. In some of the
districts the children are lacking. !

We know Dr. James P. Kinard,
former president of Anderson college,
but we .sever saw the man (
whose picture appear above Dr.
Kinard's name in the Newberry Observer.?York
News.
We are inclined to think you have
the papers mixed up a little. The J
Observer did print a real picture of J
Dr. Kinard, though it was made some j
few years ago and maybe before you <
knew him, hut it does look like he <
looked at that time. The one The Her- 1
aid and News printed was not Dr. 1
Kinard and we have said nothing j 1
about it -because we did not know and j;
do .not now know who it is. There is 1
in some respects a slight, resem- I

)lance. The State some time during j I
he year when the State Teachers met 1
in Columbia printed a cut from a re- 1
Dent picture of Dr. Kinard and they
were kind enough to. lend it to 'The 1
Herald and News, or what they
thought was it, and We took no proof 1
> i
of it until the paper was piit to press
and then it was let it go or miss the
mail and we let 'er go. We have said

thinking that we would get the right

contemporary with doing that for
which we are responsible we are going

It would seem that the warehouse
people want a campaign and want it
to last a long time at each county
seat. They are asking for an hour
for their representative. He will have
to run for another office besides lieutenant
governor for the plan has
been to give that office only about
five minutes. IWthy not have a warehouse
campaign of the State and appoint
separate meetings and let the
commissioner and any others who
might desire to be heard have all the
time they want and as long as the
people will listen. To announce for
any office has the tendency to make
people believe that it is putting the
warehouse system in politics whether
it is or not. The human kind is more
prone to believe that which is bad
i
than to believe the good. To strenj\hen
the system, if it needs legislative
strengthening, is to get the right men
In the legislature, senate and house.
The above was written for an issue
last week but was crowded* out. We
see no reason to change the opinion
expressed except to add that we
think if it is necessary to bring the
warehouse proposition before the
people the better plan would be to
nave a separate campaign m eu ligation
and let that be the main thing
to be talked at the meeting and the
I meetings could be advertised in all
the papers and the people who wanted
to get inofrmation could attend.
It would be better to have the subject
discussed apart from the political
campaign. And besides we do .not see
how the State convention could grant
the request.
The Anderson Farmers Tribune
has a good deal to say about the |
wines served at the State Bar association
and the Scotch on the boat, ride
around the harbor. Now, so far as
we are concerned we don't endorse
the criticism, because as we see It a \
bar association in the city of Charleston
without a little wine and
Scotch and so on would be a very
tame affair, but there is some force
in the statement that if a few of us
farmers wanted to have a little beer ,
u
and only a few bottles of Scotch at a
barbecue somewhere in' the country, j
why the constables would be right!
down on us and Cannon Blease and
his deputies and the rest of them'
would be rignt aner seizing jr. i\ow, j
/ i
really, what's the difference as to the:
enforcing of the law? Honest, now,
could all that liquor have been served
on that boat and all that wine at
the banquet, without some one violating
the law, just as much if we were '
to invite a few of our friend^ to eat
a few cheese and crackers with us,
and we should order a barrel of beer
to make the crackers the more pala-!.
table? It may be that a dispensation |
was granted for this purpose and if :
so no doubt we could get one to serve 3
a little beer at one of our county bar- 1
becues. "What's the difference so far
i1
as enforcement of the law is con-' r
:erned? \

THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER j
The Herald and News has taken a r
few subscriptions for the Progressive <
Parmer that were not sent to the Pro- ?ressive
Farmer until last week. We 1
1
>verlooked sending them in promptly i.
ind if some few of those who gave us
their subscriptions failed to receive
:he paper the fault was ours. Now,
i
however, so far as our records show
ill subscriptions taken for the paper *
lave been sent in and if any one who ?
c
las given us a subscription for the i
,
Progressive Farmer fails to receive |
t we would be pleased to have you
lotify us so that we may look it up. ;
In tliis connection we desire to say
hat for the next 30 days at least we :
i
will take subscriptions for the Proi
gressive Farmer in connection with (
rhe Herald and News for $1.75 for a ,
year for both papers making the Pro- <
gressive Farmer cost you only 25
cente a year. It is one of the best;
farm papers published and The Herald
and News is one of the best semiweekly
papers published and this of-/*
A
fer gives you two of the jaest papers
published a whole year for only $1.75.
Do not delay sending in your subscription.
This offer is for the cash
and for not less than a year for both
papers.
iPwist it and turn it as v.e may, the
greatest issue in politics is. "who is
to get the jobs?"?Yorkville Enqurier.
And after they get the jobs the av- j
erage politician has no further use j
for you except as you may he needed \
to get other jobs. But then there;
should be no complaint along that j
line for human nature is very selfish j
and all of us have more or less of j
ihuman nature^ The thing for the!
I
voter to do is to vote for the man
who offers who is in the judgment of;
the voter the best equipped as to j
ability, fitness and character to dis-j
charge the duties of the office he is !
seeking. There is no use for any of
us to fall out with our neighbors because
we differ on these questions.
The editor has been away since
Tuesday and this paper has been in
the hands of the junior manager. We
hope it is all right and we believe it
is.

At the Opera House.
lYifere prettiness is so common to j
the screen as to attract no special at- j
tention, but beauty ravishing in its |
perfection of features and figure, is
more than unusual on the screen, j
stage or in real life. 1 At'
the Opera House on Tuesday,!
May 16, Miss Kitty Gordon will make ;
her first screen appearance in the1
iWbrld Film Corporation's big produc- j
tio.i of "As in a Looking Glass," and i
t
the patrons of this theatre may come j
011 that date confident that they are
to see the most perfect photographic :
visualization of unaparalleled beauty
ever filmed.
For many years Miss Gordon lias1
been known as one of the few real,
beauties of the stage. But there are
i
many types of beauty, and of these
there are few that survive the inexorable
eye of the motion-picture cam-,
era and reappear on the screen with- i
out loosing some of their points of j
charm.. Miss Gordon, however, has
proved to be so perfectly adapted to
motion-picture requirements that her i
appearance 011 the screen is one of j
ravishing, intoxicating loveliness. So '
perfect in face and figure does this ;'
noted British beauty appear in her j
first picture that her management en- j
thusiastically proclaims its belief that!1
motion-picture patro::s throughout j'
the world will instantaneously 1*6- ^J
2eive her as the "loveliest woman on 1
:he screen." j]

Trinity ScIiooL i
There are few schools of Newberry
couxty that have made the progress
in the past four years that Trinity \
school has. This school is one of th*
few two teacher rural schools of
which our county boasts. It was of
the one-teacher shoe-box type four
years ago but in a live, community it >
is impossible to keep a school /I own.
'The good people voted on themselves,
an extra four mill U<x aad by this ad- _
ditional tax secured . two hundred |
dollars from the State, funds. _ \
According to the school law of our
State this school was then able to .
have an additional teacher and- remodel
the building. These people are \
to be congratulated on the improvement
made in the building, which is
now built on a modern 6tyle. It is
well equipped with patent desks and ' ^
the required number of lineal feet of
good blackboards. The good ladies of
the school are now proposing to put
folding doors between the two rooms
and by this addition will be better
fixed to use the school building as a
community centre.
There is an enrollment of more
than sixty pupils and we hope this
number will grow larger with each
year.
We had the pleasure of attending
the exercises at this school on last
Friday evening. The program was
as follows: .
Pantomine?"Abide With Me."
Motion song in costume?"Comin*
Thru the Rye."
Motion song in costume?"Yankee
Doodle."
Song?"Juanita."
Address by Col. E. H. Aull.
From the refreshments served on the
grouuds, they received a neat little
sum which will be used for improvements.
