Whitmire is to have a big chau
tauqua the 30th of June and the first
and third of July. July 1 will be a
big day in the old town, and that is
the same day that the State campaigners
are to he ^n Xewbery. The GlenLowry
is going to give the mill workers
a holiday on the first and will
feave the usual annual barbecue for
them on that day instead of on the
fourth as heretofore, so that every
??? mi o o
ojue may go 10 uc tuouutu^ua, auu
that is to be known as educational day
and the governor is to make a speech.
And there will be other things to
amuse the people, and the people will
>be there, and don't you for a moment
doubt it. It will be a bigger day than
State campaign day in INewberry.
The Whitmire band and a party of
fifty automobiles will journey to Newberry
on Saturday of this week <via
Clinton with a party of Whitmire
boostere, and they will advertise the
Chautauqua and the town as they

Far be it from us to say augnt
about the way Gov. Manning runs
things in Charleston. "Runs," we believe
is the correct word, for according
to the Charleston papers the governor's
word -has been law there for
some time. For this reason it is a
,'little strange that the iron thumb
should be lifted just at this time. The
governor will "allow the Charleston

Don't you say somewhere else in

good one. There are two corners i::1

they are. convicted. Under the law
they are presumed to be innocent until
they are proven guilty.
Please do not forget to heed our
2.jnipxe statement. We shall be ,\ery
sorry indeed to part with any of our
cuoscrioers, but if we do not hear
from you by the first of July and tne
date on your label is further in arrears
than the year 1916, we shall be
forced to take your name from our
mailing list. The payment of only
one dollar, even if it does not pay
you up, will retain you on the list.
'vV-e are not yet going to the strictly
j cash in advance syste^ though we
know that is the proper plan, but under
all the circumstances we have not
decided to do that just yet, but we

know this is a bad time of the year
J in this section to collect money but
we feel that if you really want The
Herald and 'News you can raise one
dollar, or if you cannot spare it you
can send us a poet card or call at the
office and request that the paper be
| continued and you will pay some time
soon. We are going to give you a
real newspaper and not a partisan
paper, and during this campaign year
we are sure you will want just such
a paper and for that reason we are

arrears if they will just show that
they desire us to do so. But we must
'economize in white paper and not
send the paper to those who do not
intend to pay for it. Or those who
do not want it. It is not our purpose
to worry you about this, but simply j
I to deal squarely and fairly with you
I and take you sufficiently into our conj
fidence to eav that it takes a lot of
j money to buy white paper and to pay
; the other expenses of printing the
; paper and if those who read it do not
j care for it why we do not care to go
; to the expense and trouble of sending
! it. Remember it is only two weeks
; until the first.
j We notice that most of the sand
and dir<^ that city council had hauled
in the streets to fill up the holes and
make it smooth has washed hack into
iScott's creek or some other place.
That is not so bad, however, because
it will give employment to haul U
back again. A few haulings, of course,
I would pretty near/pay for making a
permanent street but then we might
run out of work if all the streets

A Fine Record.
IMr. iW. H. Hardeman has umpired
the base hall games in (Newberry for
the college team for the past ten consecutive
years and in all that time I
has never had a kick as to his deciI
sions. This is a fine record. President
Harms says he doubts if there
is another suet record in the State.
The umpire's job is not a pleasant
one at best, but to have a record such
as this fnr so Ion? a time is a- hieh
compliment to the fairness and jus-1
tice and impartiality of Mr. Hardeman,
and to his,good judgment and
knowledge of the game as well.
