The attention of the Democratic
voter is called to the fact that under
*ie new rules and laws of the Democratic
primary it is necessary to have
a new enrolment every year. The
names of the secretaries and tlie
places where the books are has been
published twice in The Herald and
News. Some of the clubs have enrolled
pretty well while some have not
enrolled. Two clubs announce this
issue that they will have the books
at the club precincts for the purpose
The last day for enrolling is July 25.
We simply desire to call attention to
the regulations and urge each voter
to see to it that his name is on the
club roll. And you must put it there
vourself. You ran not authorize some
one else to sign the roll for you.
"A FACT THAT IS PROVED."
"Whatever doubts may have been
entertained have been dispelled.
There may have been some who clung
with faith to a belief that nature
would reverse its laws under certain
circumstances, but the rains of the
last few days have proved that nature
Is yet on the job.
Whenever loose sand, or dead, pul
verizeu ana nou-uuuesive uirc is raided
from the gutters upon the surface
of the street, the sand or' dirt aforesaid
is bound to wash back again.
That has long been known to many
of the ordinary lay citizens and "6ome
day may be realized as a fact by the
When it is realized, there will be a
saving in wasted time and energy.

residence section than clay and sand

thing of patdh work on the streets
should be stopped. It is a waste of
time and energy and money. It is a
fact that does not need prcof. It is
demonstrated before your very eyes
-every day. When those in authority
will provide the superintendent of
streets with the means to do some
permanent work and then let him do
it, then will we begin to save the
money of the taxpayer and the city

"PRTPAKEIXNESS AT HOME,*
A few days ago we called attention
to the epidemic of infantile paralysis
: - in New York city. Much to the sorrow
of the people everywhere, this
owurge snows no aDaiement, ana its
spread seems alarming.
It is feared that this terrible malady
may reach the South. We state
this upon the opinion of a resident
physician who has had much exper
rience in epidemics. His advice is
the same as that given by the New
York board of health to the city ol

There are a lot of weeds in yards of

almost anything that needed to be
i done. This is important to the health
i of the community.
We notice that the good roads bill i
passed by congress has been signed ;
by the president. It provides funds
for each 'State in the aid of road
building on condition that each State
do its part in the work. South Carolina's
portion to be available in five
years is $1,111,500, provided South
Carolina appropriate an equal amount.
Properly expended that would build
a lot of good roads. It is an investment
that will pay big dividends. If
the work once starts the federal gov
eminent will increase the appropria- j
tion from year to year and soon "we
will have some roads that are worth
while. It is coming, and we would
like to see it start.
This is something which the candidates
for the legislature might discuss
with profit and let the people
know how they stand on the subject
of better roads. Not simply generalize
about the value of good roads as we
have heard some candidates exploit
and blow off about good government.
Of course we all favor good governI
ment and good roads, but what do
you propose to do to bring about
these good things.
In order to get our proportion of
this government aid there will have
. to be some sort of legislation to provide
the means and possibly the establishment
of a road department of
tne government, dui wnaiever is necessary
should be done.
We are entirely in accord with the
position of those who would do away
1 with the present system of awarding
scholarships in the State's institutions
of higher learning, and who at
i the same time would abolish free
| tuition. There is no reason for the
I State furnishing free tuition to one
student if it is not furnished to all.
A student who can afford to pay
board and other expenses of attending
college should at the same time
be able to pay a small annual amount
for the support of the institution
from which he is obtaining an education.
There was a time perhaps \Vhen
there was reason for the scholarships
now being awarded and for free tuition.
There was a time when the expenses
of securing an education were
very large as compared with the
financial ability of parents and guardians
to give their children a college
course. But the time has passed,
i The building of Clemson and Win;
throp colleges and the lessened ex.
penses in other institutions, have put
a college education witnm xne grasp
' of every boy and girl in South Caro:
lina worthy of an education, provided
I they have a desire to acquire the
> same. . And while the cost of procuring
these educational advantages has
'been lessened the ability of the people
to pay has many times increased.
; A great many more people would
attend the colleges of the State if the
proper preparatory course could be
had in the country schools. It is
L there that the children need help
, most, because it is to these institutions
that all the children of the State
, | must look for at least a part of the
;f education which they are to receive.
The spending of large amounts of
money by the State in the support o?
h:^h schools in the towns is akin to
free tuition and scholarships in the j
Stale colleges.?Abbeville -Press and
We agree with 7011 entirely as to
scholarships. Some ten years ago
when this editor was a member of the
legislature he introduced a bill to
abolish all scholarships in State insttutions
of nigher learning. There
wnc a proflt Vinwl frnm th? TmHHfian<3
about taking away from the poor
girls the opportunity of getting an
education, and then there came from
the Citadel a protest that it would
destroy that institution because prac
tically all of its State appropriation
is for scholarships. We did not mean
to injure the Citadel but to support
it just as it had been, giving it what,
was necessary to run it.
We also had a bill to do away with
the charge for tuition for the reason
that practically no one was "paying
any tuition in any of the State :
<:<:!!?* t - . i i: : i) fX.-t?plH>nS .
and every one be made to pay. We
airree with The Pres- and ISanner
that any boy or girl tnat is prepare ! |
to enter the freshman class of any |
college and has the capacity to take j
an education can get one without the j
i aid of the State.
i Then to make these free scholar- j
; ships and give free tuition puts the
denominational college at a disadvantage.
And these institutions have
done and are doing a great work in ;
the education of the youth of the j
State, and they are filling a very important
part in our educational sysj

the great majority of the people get
all the education they ever receive
and there is the duty of the State to
fit the child for citizenship.
We notice in the Anderson Tribune
that a gentleman over about Pied- ;
mont or Pelzer has given to a company
from Anderson as a mascot his
pet dog, Colie, and that the only re- ]
quest he makes is that they bring (
Colie back to him if he is not killed
in battle or does not die from disease.
""while in Columbia the other day
we learnetd that L\Ir. Allen M. Sondley,
a former Newberry boy, had
given to Max Lewis, a sergeant of the
Butler Guards of Greenville, his pet
goat as a mascot and we - were told
that his majesty the goat would be
kept at company headquarters.
It is our hope that the mascots will
prove a benediction to the. boys while
in camp. There is not much danger 1
of being killed in battle, because we
do not believe there will be any bati
tie, but there is danger from disease.
The Columbia Record seems to be
of the opinion that the supporters of ,
Blease are registering and gettting
ready to vote while the supporters of
Manning are indifferent to the matter
and do not care whether they vote
or not. If Manning can not inspire
enough enthusiasm to get his friends

(Maybe so, but we believe that the
voters will all register before the
time is out. It may mean that those
wh.0 are against Blease are not very
strong for Manning. How about the
j supporters of Cooper and of Duncan
and DesChamps? Are they indifferent
Well, every man should prepare
hisplf tn rast his vntp and then 2n to
the polls and vote as his conscience
dictates and not he led about by
newspapers and those who are interested
in some particular candidate.
We believe that is what the people
are going to do this year.
We believe that the people of Newberry
are signing the club rolls j
right along and if they do we will
cast something over 3,000 votes in
the August primary. The time for
signing the club roll is out on the j
25th of this month, and you must, j
place your name there yourself, and j
it must be the full name, not simply j
the initials. Attend to the matter at
once. It is important. That is if
vou have not already done so.
The roads as a rule are in fine con
anion in tne iace ot me great amount i
of rain that we have liad recently.
If some one would just use tlie split
log drag on them after these rains
they would be fine.
That is a nice bridge on the Dead
Fall road at the 'Welch branch built
by Mr. T. P. Richardson. It had been
_ _ .
needed for many years. There are!
some small bridges on this road that
need attention and some holes that j
should be filled. The "work done by
community help is proving good but
the road should have" attention' to
make this last.
