x&CTHEKlFORD SCHOOL FAIR j
Tlie Rutherford school in No. o i
township decided only a few weeks j
ago to iiold a community fair and jus:
three weeks ago decided to enlarge
the scope and make it include the
schools of this township.
This is a fine section of Newberry!
county. The lands are productive and
the crops this year are good and the
farmers are prospering and they are
interested in the midst of the prosperity
in the development of their
The Rutherford school district is
cue of the first in the State, and I
belive certainly the first in Newberry,
to establish a special district and levy
a special tax for the running of the1
school. It was taught in those days
by Prof. Thos. W. Keitt for several
years. And the people had a good;
It is just ten miles from Newberry j
to the school house. According to my j
prortiisc in response to a very cor- j
dial invitation J drove out on Friday!

who were present. I asked my friend J
and leighbor, J. R. Davidson, to go!
with me and my mascot, and he was j
? glfkl of the opportunity for it was;
within a mile of his boyhood home and j
am;d the scenes of his youth. Yet he
said ir going along that the whole
country had changed and that now
there were very few people living in
that section that were there when hej
left I, does not take long for these j
changes to take place.
My friend, J. D. Nance, bad promis-:
ed.to have a couple of birds on toast j
for me when I came, but he forgot,
about it and says he will bring them I
some time during the season. He is
game warden for the county, you,
know, and keeps the laws enforced
right to the letter, but tempers justice
with mercy, and, therefore, I.
reckon he will be permitted to bring'
me the two birds. Well, it made very j
little difference for the good ladies |
of the community had come with their j
baskets and a table baa been maae auu
there was a dinner spread that was
fit for the gods. Fried chicken, baked
pork, country sausage a la
old country style, and pies and cakes j
galore. Really I did not expect din-i
ner to be served and I went to see!
what the community was doing and to
give it what encouragement I could by j
my presence and through The Herald |
and News. Yet, don't misunderstand
me, the dinner was good and I showed
Practically all of the schools of the
surrounding and immediate territory
had booths and exhibits and with the
short notice they had and the time
given to them they were exceedingly
creditable. Besides the Rutherford
school there were exhibits from
Zion, Mt. Pleasant, St. Phillips, Mc'
Crary, and Pressly by W. H. Folk, the
school not making an exhibit, but Mr.
Folk, trustee, decided that the school

There were all sorts of fancy work
from the schools and lots of preserves
and iellies and cake and everything
that you could think of that is good
to eat and some of the finest looking
hams you ever saw. And I know they
are good for I -have tried some of the
hams from the homes from which,
these came. There were chickens and
rabbits and pigs and cows and home
raised colts, mules and horses, and
as you entered the grounds the first
thing you saw were several fine 'possums
clinging to the limbs of the
Then there was the community
spirit which was manifest, and as I
have before remarked, that is the
greatest benefit at the present time
to be derived from these community
fairs, it is the development of the
community spirit, that feeling which
makes one take a just and entnusiastic
interest in his own community and is
willing to cooperate with his neighbors
in making it the very best community
anywhere to be found. And
that is what the community fair is doing.
There were no monetary prizes to
be awarded, but the judges examined
the different booths and the exhibits

we have preached for so many years.
And it is a pleasure to live to see some
of our dreams realized and the people
doing Just what we told them years
ago. Not only is this true as to the
rural school and the fann. bnt many
other tilings are happening which we
advocated which at the time were

and I want once more to urge tfie
people to use the drag as soon as
the rains come because just a little
work of that kind at the right time
will make this a good road all winter
and it will cost but little time

We stated some time ago that our
force was small, and if the advertisers
would give us the copy for the ads
in advance of the day of publication
we could handle them with greater
ease and more efficiently. Some of
them have done so, but we know it is
difficult to get out of the old habits,
and generally the copy for ads comes
in the day of publication. We do the
best with it we can but it generally
makes us late in going to press and
difficult at tiroes to make the mails.
Especially is that true now since our
mailing list has been so materially in- i
creased. lAnd then w3 never know i
just how to arrange the forms so as 1
to care properly for the copy that
should go, and at the same time take
care of the ads. With, the large in- j
crease in the circulation- we have to
go to press with the first side so much I
sooner in order to get it off the press
for the last side, it being necessary
with our press to print one side at
the time. We like to accommodate j
our patrons and we like to please them :
and we want to handle all the ads we j
can because we need them to make ex-'
We mention this in this connection
to explain the holding over frequently
of matter that should appear in the
paper and frequently the leaving out
of ads that should run. For the last
issue for instance we had a good deal
of real live news matter in type that
we should have printed and would!

these ads had come in sooner we could
have arranged the first side so as to;
have carried more live matter. When
we came to the office on Thursday
morning it looked that we were noti
going to have a page of ads but by j
the tirriP wp. went to nress we had;
more than we could liandle and nearly
two eoiumns were crowded out. We
don't like to do this, but we are due;
the subscriber a certain amount of i
news matter. j
And then it entails more or less ofj
rush to 'handle the matter and that!
means more or less of mistakes. For I
instance we had an ad of "Cooper's!
original spring needle underwear"!
which was meant to have the name
of J. H. Summer and Company under!
it as the dealers in .NewDerry out
no name appeared. But for the rush!
we could have handled this in the'
proper manner and we take this meth-!
od of saying that this underwear is !
sold in .Newberry by J. H. Summer and;
Company and if you are interested we!
invite you to visit their big clothing1

The Lee county fair is on this week i
i at Bishopville. We are in receipt of :
an invitation to attend from our friend, j
Prof. W. A. Stuckey. vVe would like j
very much to visit Bishopville ouce
i more and regret that we cannot set'

i Newberry county had some of the best
' county fairs ever held. That was a .
' long time ago. Only a short time ago

j ty wiio wanieu 10 ruu*c mc agnaLiuu
for u county fair, it would be a. good
, thing to do. We have had recently ,
J two mighty fine fairs at the school j
houses of the county.
We want once more to say to the j
i rnnn? ladv contestants in the contest:
now going on in the circulation de- j;
! partment of The Herald and News that
j we would much rather have you col- <
| lect from the fellows W'ho are on the
j list and who owe than to get new subi
scribers. The list of new ones is already
long enough. If our advertising
friends and customers bought cir- (
culation instead of space it would be ?
well to have circulation, but as a
rule the Newberry merchant buys
space and not circulation. And space!
when we have 3000 is not worth auyj
more in his estimation than when wej
have 2000, and there is no money in i
the subscription. Of course while you!
arp at it so ahead and get all you can j
but be sure to get after the fellow wbo!
already owes. j
Thanksgiving day will bring a large J
crowd to the city. We suppose the'
merchants will do as they have been !
doing close their places of business j
011 that day and give the clerks a
chance to enjoy the day.

the Thanksgiving Aa,y in the country
with his sister. We know that he .willj
enjoy the outing and the rest and when !
he returns will be all the bettsr pre-!
pared for efficient work. We men-,
tion this here, however, to say that |
if some "personals" do not appear the j
reader may know the reason. Not j
many local matters or "personals'' I
escape the nose for news possessed J
b,y Mr. Greneker. ;We hope he will
enjoy the rest and be refreshed by it.1
Remember that The Herald and j
News fro Friday will be issued on j
flftpnmon or evening tnisj
week and the office will be closed on
Thursday, if you have an item that
you want in that issue be sure to get
it to us in time. If you have an ad
you want inserted do not forget to bring
it not later thatn Wednesday.
The editor will probably hie himself to
some secluded nook in the country, ,
while the boys and the others will
j likely see the great foot ball game i
on the college park. We are not so j
sure that we will be able to find any j
