THE EDITOR'S OMISSION
The article ppublished in the last
issue on South Carolina should have
a credit mark in some way. It is an
excellent condensed outline history
of South Carolina and is a paper that
was read before one of the women's
clubs of Newberry and the writer
does not want her name published. In
fact she d:d not know that the paper
was going to be printed until she read
it in the paper but it is so excellent
a history outline of the state that
we thought it would be good to print
it and this much credit should be
given, that it was written by one of
the women of Newberry. It would
be a good thing for the children who
are and who may the coming session
be studying the history of the state
to cut this out and study it.
Another omission that may be
charged up to the editor is the article
by Mr. R. Y. Leavell which we stated
was in the last, issue and which we
made some comments upon, which did

issue. We suppose that every one
in Newberry who is interested in the
town had read the article any way
because most of the people of the city
read both of the papers but as we
made some comments upon the article
we intended to publish it. We hope
that Mr. Leavell read what we said
and that we may all soon get together
and that something may be done very
soon toward making some improvements
at Rosemont. We are very sure
if the people can just be got together
and have some one to lead the way
that the, money necessary will be

in thousands as Mr. Leavell
says. There is not a citizen in the
town who has not a personal interest
in this place and if he should be >:o
fortunate just now not to have, it
will not be long: before he will have.
There is not a, home in which there is
not a vacant chair, and should there
not be now, the time will soon come

Sooner or later we must all pass this
way. Why not come together on a
common ground and all pull together
and make this place beautiful in
name, also beautiful in reality. We
can do it and we will if the trustees
will just take the people who have
loved ones there into their confidence
and ask them and permit them to

The school at Chappeils closed last

fine and the road in good condition.
There was a large audience present
as is the case at all these school closings,
and I am always pleased to see
the people come out and take an in

but the auditorium is not too

and we will have a high school at this
The "chool was taught the past session
by Miss Jeanie Simkins as principal
and M'sses Anabel Saunders and
Clarice Fore assistancts, and the term
was nine months. A modern lighting
system has been installed and the
school had a very successful term.
Several young ladies and young men
finished the tenth grade and most
of them will probably go to college.
Rev. G. R. Pettigrew had charge
of the program and the address of the
evening was made by Prof. Goodman,
and he made a .ipienciid ana instructive
talk which pleased the people
and we all had a good evening together.
Hon. S. McGowan Simkins
of Edgefield, and the father of th?
principal of the school and-himself a
native of this section, was present
and we pressed him into service to
present the certificates to the ones
finishing the tenth grade, and he did
it well and made a most excellent
talk. Mrs. A. P. Coleman offers a
medal open to the entire school for

this year was won by Miss Eoline
Dominick of the sixth grade and I
made the presentation.
The school at Pomaria will close on
Tuesday evening and this will wind
up all the schools of the county for
the session of 1921-1922. I hope another
year we may be able to have

I have had several conferences
with trustees from several of the dis,

have taken the time from their busi1

condition, and in this way we may be

You can not do anything and make

is to help the children.

SOON TO BE PUT UIN
J The enemies of man are many and
I from birth until death, human flesh
is never entirely free of some harassing
influence. However, there are a
,few dreaded plagues that can be
forstalled and prevented. By the
grace of God we have the knowledge
and by virtue of certain philanthropic
organizations and the Newberry
county delegation v/e have tne means
to prevent probably the worst of all
diseases that afflict us. I: is typhoid
Since the time when we have had
I accurate medical records we find that
typhoid fever has ravaged armies and
devastated communities in epidemics
and in individual cnses. The mobilization
of the great army to defeat
the Germna monster brought with it
the oroblem of preventing this most
dreaded of scourges. The records of
death from typhoid fever among our
boys over yonder show that practically
no cases of this disease occurred.
Since this is true of a large mobilization
of peoples, whether military or
otherwise, then it would do well to
examine and see how this apparent
miracle was wrought. There are two
simple measures that are responsible;
sanitation and inoculation. In the
average town of our country the sanitary
arrangements are insufficient or
at least do not come up to the Stan
dards that were in use in the, army.
The fconditions in the rural districts
are not as good as in the towns. Up
until the recent years nothing has
been done towards using the preven'

be grasped that this disease is
very prevalent and has continued
year after year to kill and maim the
finest in the land. There is no one
who has not had a friend or a relative
who has fallen a victim to typhoid
fever. In those immunities
where sanitation and insulation
have been practiced long enough to
have covered the most of the people
then the results are startling. Orangeburg
county has been one of the
ones that had the incidence of typhoid
fever reduced about 60 per
cent. This decrease is not an accidental
thing but has been maintained
for three years while surrounding
counties have shown an increase. This
fact was brought out in an article
written by Dr. L. A. Riser and printed
in the American Medical Association
Journal some time ago. So we
are bringing to Newberry, not the
first time, but again, the opportunity
of getting the inoculation free and
to have it given by expert in public
UanlfVi on/1 /^icooco nrovpnt.inn Thp
JiCailil UiiU UtUWUWV v>
facts concerning sanitation will be
brought to the door of the householder
and all that has been done to make
other communities free of typhoid
will be done for Newberry.
However, there is unothei1 essential
and that is the cooperation of the
people concerned. That is to say, in
order for you to be free*of the pos,
sibility of contagion you must agree
to take this anti-typhoid treatment
and to sanitate your premises. This
is optional of course and is left to
the intelligence of the individual.
; What will Newberry county do about
it? We sfcall see.
,: In order that this treatment may
be made e^sy to get and to thereby
reach the greater number of people,
we have prepared an itinerary to
cover the whole county. It is impossible
to cover the whole county in
one swing so a tentative schedule has
been made out and later other towns
and communities are to be approach.
ed. This schedule will be announced
j It is our purpose to start this campaign
on Saturday, June the 10th,
> and carry it along as long as it seems
. to justify the time spent on it. Last
: year this same thing was done and
.about two thousand people took this
j treatment, however, that is a very
small proportion of the people living
I in this county and we want far more
| to take it this summer. If only every
one would be inoculated against
| typhoid fever then th\s disease would
be swept out of our county entirely.

3> NEWBERRY'S CLUB WOMEN <8>
By Mrs. Agatha A. Woodson
[ Miss Sadie Goggans
Not only has Newberry a long line,
of married women to be proud of,;
but her young women are behind no <
set of girls in the state. Several ofi
these occupy positions of prominenceand
one among these is Miss Sadie
Goggants, the daughter of John C.
Goeeans and Delia Long. Her fath
er was descended from the Revolutionary
family of Daniel Goggans,
who came to Newberry from Virginia
before the Revolutionary war.
Her direct ancestor, Daniel Goggaws,
was in Marion's command during that
struggle. Another family of great
refute in Saluda, Edgefield and New-;
berry counties, from which she is descended
is that of Peterson. Her
grandfather, Jerry Goggans, married
Elizabeth Peterson, sister of the be-;
loved Saluda pastor, Rev. James Pet-'
erson (Uncle Jimmie) so honored by
every one who knew him and to
whom one of the beautiful windows
in Red Bank church is dedicated.
She was also a sister to Captain Wm.'
Spencer Peterson, who was killed at
Atlanta during the War Between the
States (1864). j
Miss Goggans is a prominent teacher
in the schools here, yet she finds
time to devote to patriotic labors.
She has served as supervisor of the
! rural schools in Newberry and in
Richland couitties, is secretary of the
Ked Cross chapter of Newberry, and
cerrptnrv of thp state Woman's auxil
iary of the American Legion, as well
as county chairman of the same organization.
