THE OLD COURT HOUSE BUILDING j
Several persons Lave asked us in |
tfae last few days to advocate tbe;

fixing up tiie oia court uuuac uwu- >
iiig so that it might be used for public
meetings of any kind and also j
for entertainments. That sounds fun-!
my to this editor. It only shows now j
far ahead of the procession we have
been and how soon people forget, or
kow little attention they give to what |
a newspaper may say. A good man>
years ago a proposition was submrttea
to the voters of Newberry county to
huildinK torn away. The
Herald and News at that time opposed
the tearing down of the building,
and argued that it was too good a
building to be torn away, and that it
could be used for many good purposes.
Some of our friends who wanted it
taken out of the public square did not
approve the position or The Herald
and News, but we felt we were right
and made the fight. The building was
Then long before there was a rest
room in Newberry we urged that the
lower floor be made into a public library
aad rest rooms, and that proTision
be made for its maintenance
?~ that Mai.
2.IICI proper Citi c. n & i _
J. F. J. Caldwell wrote several article
on the subject and suggested
a plan for the legal carrying out of
these ideas. _The entire building could
and should be utilized in this w^ay and
it would be one of the best investments
that the county could make. With
the public library and a rest roon. foi j
the ladies and a waiting room for the
men and the upstairs for an auditorium
for public meetings and ei*ter-|
tainments, we would have a place that j
few towns have. And it would tie a
good thing for the people of the town
and the country.
In this way we could gat ~ fine li-j
brary building and have a fine library
a*id not have to ask Mr. Carnegie to
aid us. We should maintain a libra- !
rian and a keeper for the rest room ;
and for the entire building and have !
it under proper regulations, it is1
tn us to have so many peo-;
giaiujiiu^ ? ..
pie thinking, about it now, even after j
so many years, and yet it is a little
sad that what we said should have!
been forgotten so soon. We shall be;
gratified to see our dream in this one;
thing, if no more, realized while we!
may yet be at^le to see it come to
pass. It is true that the rest room

is there, Dili n cuum UC muuv -??
more valuable by carrying out fully |
tlie suggestions we are making, and
that .others are now talking about, by
having tlie waiting room for the men
and the library and the auditorium.
Mr. Sample did a good thing having
the upstairs cleaned out and'
lights put in for the entertainment the!
other night, not, 6imply for the bene- !
fit of the people on that occasion, butj
Vinftoncfl it has brought a great manyj
Ucvauuv ? ? ^ _
people to think and to see what a val-!
uable building we have and for howj
many good purposes it may be used.
We are sure the people will have his
hearty cooperation in the carrying
out of the ideas here suggested. Let
some of our business men make the
The close election which we have
had should suggest tlie idea of changing
our system of electing a president.
The electors from the States
are under only a moral obligation to
vote for the Republican or Democratic j
candidate. In other words, if Mr. Wil- i
son ehould now have a majority of
only six it is possible for four of
them to change and cast their votes
for Mr. Hughes. If four of the Wilson
electors should die Mr. Hughes

The people of Prosperity are having!
the biggest community fair ever held j
and it has aroused the community'

spirit continue to grow in intensity. |
It makes any community. We hope;
a large number of the Newberry town
people will go down and catch a whiff;
of the spirit. It will help. Large'
crowds were there yesterday and ;f

pleasure which it gave us to get to
the country and to enjoy real and genuine
old time hospitality. The day
was beautiful and the air which came
with the touch of the cold wave was
crisp and balmy and gave the glow
to the cheek. It was the marriage of
the youngest daughter c>f our friends,
Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sease, Miss Eliza
beth Sease, to Mr. Oiin C. Derrick,
and the day was Wednesday of the
present week in the afternoon.
Sheriff Cannon Blease, who was going
down, very kindly offered to take
us with him in his new Dodge. In
spite of the fact that we had promised
never again to ride with him, because
we are never in such a hurry to get
anywhere, but on his statement thai
he wanted to start early so that we
might travel leisurely and enjoy the
j ride, we accepted his kind offer. Mrs.
I tt". t-t Tv'ihior and E. H.. Jr.. and Mr.
H. H. Evans were also of the party.
IW-e left Newberry promptly at one
o'clock and lie drove beautifully going,
of course at about 20 miles the
hour, but he seemed to be very care!
ful. Coming back he seemed anxious
to get to Newberry on very important
business. We left Mr. Sease's home
at 2-0 minutes to 5 o'clock, spent some
20 minutes or more trying to help a
?i-rsir.* a-ot hie mnnhine run
ning, though none of us knew anything
about it, and came to Newberry
at 20 minutes past 5 o'clock. The distance
is 18 miles. You may figure the
rate of speed we were making in covering
the distance if you care to have
some exercise in arithmetic, but we
came in safely?fortunately the good

I ever saw pull a rein. We mean the
' Blease boys, and Cannon drives wen,
but he always seems to be In a littl?
more of a hurry than we are. The
roads are good. Of course, a little
rough and bumpy. We went via Little
Mountain and that is a good road
around the mountain to the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Sease live at the old
home of Mr. Leonard Sease. Mr.
Leonard Sease, Mr. Ed Seasr's fstiie.*,
is still living and makes his nome
with Mr. and Mrs. Ed Sease. He is
now nearly 93 years old, having been
born in May, 1824. Mrs. Sease, his
wife, passed to the great beyond just
eleven years ago. She was a Miss
Fike and the home in which th2
Seases live is the old Fike home in
which the parents of Mrs. Leonard
Sease lived and where they died.!
There is a family burying ground near;
the house and in it are only four
graves?Mr. and Jtfrs. J. M. Fike, Mrs.
Leonard Sease and a child of Mr. and
Mrs. R. I. Stoudemyer, Mrs. Stoudemeyer
being a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Leonard Sease. j
The fine old country home/-in the
midst of broad acres of very fertile
land much of which is still in the
original forest, is more than a hundred
years old. In the same roc*?t
where his granddaughter was married
on Wednesday Mr. Leonard Sease led
his bride to the altar Just 71 years
ago, and he was present to witness
this marriage on Wednesday. Fortynine
years ago his daughter was married
in this same room to Mr. R. I.
Stoudemeyer, and she and ^Ir. Stoudemeyer
were present at this marriage
on Wednesday. Here too Mr. John N.
Feagle found his wife and Mr. Benja

But the wedding of Wednesday is
what we started to write about. The
home was beautifully decorated in
Southern smilax and the "bride and
groom stood beneath a double heart
of white chrysanthemums as flife
preacher, the Rev. Jno. J. Long, said
the words that made them man ana
wife. Little Miss Oeasie Dominick, a
cousin of the bride, was the rib-bon
girl and was very pretty and grace.

The attendants were Mr. and Mrs.
Ralph Sease, a brid? and groom of
four days, Mr. Jacob Singley and Miss
Eunice 'Halfacre, Mr. Wilbur Long and
Miss Novice Kibler. The bride came in
with Miss Annie Halfacre and was met
at the altar by the groom who came in
with his brother, Mr. Ernest Derrick.
The bride was beautiful in a dress
of white silk and with the regulation
bridal veil and orange blossoms, the
veil being caught with a handsome
brooch of pearis. sue cai x icu *? a bouquet
of bride's roses.
The bridesmaids wore handsome
dresses of blue silk.
The wedding march was played by
Miss Annie JMae Bedenbaugh..
After the ceremony and the congratulations
a delicious luncheon was
served the guests. j
In this connection we mention the
marriage on Sunday at the Lutheran
parsonage at Little Mountain by the
Rev. J. J. Long of Mr Ralph Sr>ase,
a brother of the bride of Wednesday,
to Miss Pearl Fulmer.
Mr. Sease's home is ri^ht on the
line between Newberry and Lexington
counties, Dr. Wvche says the line
runs through the "hou^e. but Mr. Sease
