Our boys want to go to the Fair,
and they say they want to go on
Thursday, we. suppose because there
must be a football game or something
like that on that day, and we always
t/\ pnoniira^e them to SO Off OC
casionally. And then, too, they have
been faithful and we are running with
a small force in number, but large in
"work, and we would like for then! to
hare an outing. -Now this is to say
that the next issue of The Herald
and News will be printed Wednesday
night and mailed out Thursday morning
instead of Friday morning.

Aould spend one day at the Statb
Fair. It is a great reunion of the people
of South Carolina.
The city of Anderson has passed

badly needs one, and then it should be
aaforced. Turning the corners of our
