The mailing: list has not been corrected
for several weeks and many
who have paid and who paid before
the first of July have not been credited
on the label so the date on the
label is no indication of how the matter
of subscription stands with you.
We will correct the list as soon as
Do not delay the sending of that
dollar for a whole year of The Herald

one dollar. No more and no less. It
does not matter what the time of the
expiration of your subscription. One
dollar pays for one year. Applies to
new or old, all alike. Sale closes on
the 31st of this month.

And it does not matter how many

hook is in the hands of the secretary
of your club and if it is not he will
be able to tell you where it is.
^ We are glad to see the policy of
city council to put down permanent
coping along the streets. This is
what should have been done long
ago, and the money spent on temporary
work would by this time even, if
started a few years ago, have given
us permanent cement copings along

Wish they would fix up Nance from
Boundary to Friend. We should be
glad to contribute our mite to that
end. And then it is one of the avenues
of entrance to the city from one
of the highways. It should be fixed.
The birth rate in Newberry county
stands at the top of the list of counties
in the per centage. Horry county
comes first with 42.8 births for
population of 1,000. Berkeley is next
with 37.1 per 1,000; Saluda is lowest
with 19.3 per 1,000 of population.
Newberry has 31.3 per 1,000 of population,
or a total number of births
of 1,118. These figures are given by
the bureau of vital statistics for the
year 1921. The total births in South
Carolina during 1921 according to
the bureau of vital statistics was 50,538,
and the number-per 1,000 of
population was 28.3. I
At the recent meeting of the Press

The first of the dalies to come to

about the resolution to exchange as
in the old days. And it is a pleasure
to us to exchange as we did in the
other days. We did not like this thing
of trading checks or exchanging
We are a little surprised and disappointed
at the attitude of Senator
lanev, one of the candidates for
governor. He seems to be just a little
free in the use of ugly epithets.
And he flings them at mere rumors.
He denounced the rumor which he
eaid he heard that he had ever sup-^
ported Blease ,ns a "dirty lie," and
words to that effect. There was no
use for him to say that. No one
would inquire in this good day who
any one had supported or not sup-j
ported in the past. And besides that
it is by implication at least an insult
to any and all men who ever had
voted for Blease. And some just as
true patriots and as good men as.
Senator Lanev or any other citizen J
have voted for Blease. It was so un-j
called for in him to make any such:
insinuations as must follow from!
what he is reported as saying, that;
we are disappointed.
We quote from the Union Times!
three sentences from the speech ofj
President Harding made at his homej
town on July 4. They carry a timely j
warning, and as the Times well says j
should be soberly pondered in this;
time when strikes are the order of the,
day. These are the sentences refer-!
red to: "A free American has the;
right to labor " -ithout any other's!

group domination is reflected in our;
laws," and "The greatest traitor to
his country is he who appeals to prejudice
and inflames passion, when soI
ber judgment and honest speech are'
so necessary to lirnily establish trail- j
quilitv and security."
These words are true and timely,
and should be consdiered carefully,
and heeded. We should not make any
effort to enact class legislation and
never should appeal to passion and j
prejudice be made. We have always
been of the opinian that any man
should be left free to work for whom j
he pleased. And if he was not satisfied
with the wage or the conditions,
he should go and work for someone
else, and should make no effort to
keep any one else from working. In
other words, we do not oelieve that
strikes can be justified by any condi-;
tions. We should be left free to do j
as we please in the matter of working
or not for any individual or any
company. When you take any other
position you are .interfering with
the freedom and the liberty of the
The state campaign parfy takes a

no special feature connected with the

injected by Mr. Hope and Mr. Swearingen.
Mr. Hope charges that the
dual plan of adoption of text books
will CG6t the people of the state a
good sum and Mr. Swearingen replies
"by saying that Mr. Hope is a book
agent and should not hold the position
of state superintendent of education
unless of course the people
should desire to have a book agent.
'Mr. Hope claims that he is making
an honest living and the job of book
representative is an honest one and
he c?n see no reason why she should
'be barred from the office because
he was doing honest work. We do
not think that has anything to do with
it or the fitness of either for the position.
Mr. Swearingen of course is
only one of a board of nine members
who made the adoption of books and
is not alone responsible for the books
adopted. We think, however, the
board should have adopted instead of
making so many optional adoptions.
If you are going to leave it to the
various schools for instance to make
choice between two geographies why
not let each district or each school
select from among a dozen. In other
words if the state board is to adopt
it should adopt. That is the way ft
appears to us. :
What has become of the suggestion,
which we understood was agreeable
to the trustees of Rosemont, to
have a meeting of lot owners and see
ifwe could agree upon some plan by
which the grounds and driveways
might be improved, and the general
appearance of the place made at least
a little better. I
Somehow we have an idea that the
people of Newberry would be more
than willing to do something to improve
the appearance of the city of
the dead if some one would take the
lead and permit -them to contribute
* i xl i.L^
to tnat purpose ana assure tnem me
money would be used for improvement.
No one can go over to Rosemont
without a feeling that the sacred
spot is being fearfully neglected.
And who is more interested in
the improvement than the folk who
have loved ones buried there. As
Mr. Leavell said in an article he
published in the papers a short time
ago, it will take money to make the
improvements that should be made.
Tnc?f Kcliox'n fVio'f Vio nonnlp n"f
Newberry would furnish the money
if they were given the opportunity
and some organized plan were adopted
for the raising and the spending
of it. And we understood that Mr.
Leavell and the other trustees were
going to call a meeting of the lot
owners and see if something could
"be done. Why wait. It seems to us
that the place gets worse and worse
and the driveways are just being
washed into ditches as the rains
All the people are interested in the
keeping of Rosemont and in the making
of it a beautiful place. Let us
all get together and do something and
do it now. Why wait.
Only about 100 subscribers renewed
and came on as new during
the first week of the sale and we
were just making a calculation that
it will be impossible to take in all of
them by the 31st of July unless they
come faster, though that is very
good considering the news has not
spread all around in the few days the
sale has been on. We desire to write
at least 2,000 receipts during this
"big sale and they will have to quicken
the step if we do that. We are sure
the rush will be on in earnest this
week. The Herald and News for one
year for a dollar is a bargain and one
that you do not pick up 3very day in.
