E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Tuesday, May 16, 1916.
The Greenville News endorses the
suggestion that some one write a j
book or history of Greenville county!
and says that such a book would interest
most of the people. That may
be true and no dotfbt such a book
would be a valuable contribution to
the history of the State. But as a
matter of hard experience we would
not advise any one to write a history
of Greenville or any other county expecting
it to be anything but a labor
of love and without compensation of
any other kind. The people may tell j
you how much they want a history
of the countv and what thev will sri-va
to have such a book but when the j
book is printed they will decide to i
wait awhile and in the meantime the
author and the publisher are out of
their money. We know from experience.
The public does not appreciate
at least in a substantial manner
any such patriotic service. May.
be' if you would print only a limited
number of cODies and nnt half nf!
them away for twenty five years then !
you might sell them at a fair price.
We do not consider that our contract
with our subscribers calls upon
us to tell them what they want to
know, or what we would like them to
know. (According to the way we figure
it, it is up to us to do the best
we can in the way of telling them
what i9 happening.?Yorkville Enquirer.
y ' That is well and truly put. A news
paper should first tell its subscribers
what is happening and tell it to.them
as near as human power can just as
# happened. First of all to print the
?ews in &n> impartial and fair manf

handsomest stores in the State and
they carried very large and varied j
stocks of goods. No doubt the loss

The date for the meeting of the
Press association has been moved up
a week from the date first announced
and it now comes at the same time
with the Newberry commencement.
Of course that does not concern the
membership of the association outside j
of Newberry. But in the old days we
tried to figure so as .not to conflict
with these commencement times. The
country editor who does all of his
work and is personally interested in
the commencement in his own town
does not feel that he can get away.

It seems to us that -the meeting is
rather early any way, but then if it
suits the majority it will have to suit
us. Wevsuppose it was shoved up in
order to make way for the politcal
campaigns. We hope the boys will
haye a fine meeting. >
