DO NOT FOOL YOURSELF
I do not want any subscriber to
fool himself into the belief that I
am going to continue the special sale
of The Herald and News at one dollar
after the 31st of July. Or that
I am going to let names remain on
the list whether the subscription is
paid or not as I have done in the
I put on this special sale to give
those who had gotten in arrears opportunity
to catch up, and in doing
so I made the same offer to every
subscriber on the list regardless of
the date to which he has paid. One
dollar will buy The Herald and News
for one vear at any time up to and
including July 31. After that date
the price will be two dollars and all
who have not paid will be taken from
the list. You know that I shall regret
to take off any name, but I can
not run the paper on credit, because
I have to pay cash for all I get done
and then it is more satisfactory to
all parties, publisher and subscriber,
to be on a cash basis. We have taken
on a good many new names dur
ing the sale, but a great many who
are in arrears have not paid. I hope
that all who desire the paper to come
on will take advantage of this offer
and get in good standing. There are
not many days left, and I am giving
you this personal warning to take
advantage of 'this cheap sale while it
is now on.

DOLLAR DAYS AT GREENWOOD
Greenwood merchants are putting
i ii l - n j ? _ xt
anouier aonar aay saie, or ratner we
should say dollar days, and they are
going .to offer unheard of bargains on
Friday and Saturday of this week.
The bcss has turned his back and instructed
the salespeople to go to it
and sell the goods. A list of some
of the merchants in this great sale is
given in an advertisement of these
two days in this issue of the paper,
The first bale of cotton of this
season crop sold in Georgia the
other day for fifty cents the pound
and we see where it sold in Savannah
for fifty-one cents the pound.
Why would it not pay the merchants
of Newberry to unite in the
putting on of a couple days to be
known as dollar days. It would be
much better if all of them would
unite in such a movement 'than for
one or even two or three to agree
on such a sale. It would attract
more people and then all of them
uniting they could afford to offer
some attractions to bring the people
to town and once the' people came
of course they would buy if the bargains
were offered them.
Only ooie more week in which to
take advar-tage of the dollar sale of
The Herald and News. A good manv
trlin arp in arrparK Tinvp fnilpH nn
to this time to take advantage of this
cffer in order to get caught up. Positively
after the 31st all who are in
arrears will be taken from the list
and to get back on will cost you at
the rate of two dollars a year. Better
take advantage of this offer and
come along this week or just send
a dollar bill in a letter and your
name and postoffic-e and we will do
the rest. No time to delay.
Mr. F. W. Fant will represent The
Herald and News at Whitmire. We
will be glad to have you turn over
to him any news items that you may
have. We expect soon to have a
special correspondent at Pomaria
and Chappells and a regular one at
Little Mountain. We get occasional
letters from these points but we
want to make such an arrangement
with the correspondent that we will
know that The Herald and News will
be taken care of in the event there
should be any items of news in these
THE WONDERFUL FORMATION
IN SPRINGS AT OCALA, FLA.
Editor Herald and News:
I want to tell you of the most
wonderful spring in all Florida. The
most remarkable and interesting
phenomena presented by this spring
is the truly extraordinary transparency
of the water, in this respect
surpassing cin\1thinir which cxtn Hp
imagined. All of the intrinsic beauties
which are invested in it as well
as the wonderful optical properties
which popular reports have ascribed
to its waters are directly or indirect
ly referable to their almost perfect
On a clear day after the sun has
obtained sufficient altitude, the view
from the side of the small glassbottom
boat floating on the surface
| of the water near the center of the
i hpad snrinsr is beautiful beyond de
scription, and well calculated to pro-1
duce a powerful impression upon the
imagination. Every picture and
configuration of the' bottom of this
gigantic basin is as distinctly visible
as if the water was removed and atmosphere
substituted in its place.
The shadows of our little boat, of
i over-honging heads and hats of projecting
crags, and logs of surroundrJ

bottom were distinctly and ^ sharply
defined; while the constant waving
of the slender and delicate moss-like
, algae, by means of the currents cre!ated
by the boilnig up of the water
and the swimming of numerous fish
above the miniature subaqueous forest
imparted a living reality to the
scene which can never be forgotten.
And if we add to this picture, already
sufficiently striking, those cbjeccts
beneath the surface of water,
when viewed obliquely wer fringed
with prismatic hues we shall cease to
be surprised at the mysterious phenomena
with which vivid imagination
has invested this enchanting,
spring, -as well as the wonderful i
properties of its waters.
On a bright day the beholder;
seems to be looking down from some j
lofty, airy point on a fairy scene in j
the immense' basin beneath him; a!
scene whose beauty and magical ef- >
feet is vastly enchanting by the chromatic
tints with which it is invested.;;

or springs ranging from ten to
eighteen feet wide through the solid
rock and each one from thirty-eight
to ninety feet deep. They are all 1
named: Jacob's Well, the Ladies'
P-trlor, the Shell Room, Florida
The Shell Room is about eighteen 1
feet across. The volume of water
coming up from below is about eight 1
feet wide and the white shells are
kept in a whirl all the time.
The Ladies' Parlor is about as :
lrr^e as the Shell Room, with all *
kinds of flowers and vines looped
together as completely as if done
by deft fingers. % i
The Florida Snow Storm is almost
a. square room sixteen feet across
and ninety feet deep. In the crev- (
asses of the rock at the bottom,
something like white chalk is boiling
up, and the water comes with such
force as to send this white substance
all over the room. It is as white '3S
the drifting snow. In fact it looks
exactly like a snow storm I have
seen in the mountains. ' I
In going from one room to another
in this spring the water is not
over four feet deep. In am sure the 1
whole formation in this spring is a
solid rock. This spring is as large
as a city block. There are nine of
oca -rnrxm c n*Vi ic>Vi to n cm frnm -fnrtv
to ninety feet deep. Some of the ^
most wonderful formations are here
that can be seen in no other body of
water. The Bridal Chamber is the
most beautiful, I think. l"
After going over all these wonder-1'
ful rooms in our glass-bottom boat,',
the man at the wheel will back the
little boat in a little cove and call
out, "Come up, little fishes, a man]
wants to see you, come right on," j
and they come by the hundreds. He '
gave me a loaf of bread and told me i
to hold it down in the water. I did
that and the fishes devoured the last
crumb from my hand. This is done
daily. He h-as them trained.
In my next I will tell of two In-1
dian lovers at Silver Springs, Ocklawha

I Editor of The Herald and News:
| Orders for my new forthcoming'
book, mentioned in this paper some^
time ago, are coming in, but slowly. (
My-offer of 5 copies for $1 seems,
i quite popular. But if the book is to J
be published soon, as soon as some of
my helpers desire, I must receive
more 'advance orders, and :hat right
away. Printing is expensive, as
you all know. I can promise my
friends, however, a very nice uook
1 * ? |
J at a minimum cost 01 puuncauoa. j
i Hence my offer, in advance of publi-J
cation, or 1 copy for 25 cents or 5
copies, $1. j
i Therefore, send me your orders
now, before vou do another thin?.
Send any amount you may be able
to send. My need is urgent, my appeal
sincere: else I would not solicit
help in this manner so often.
The object I have in writing and
putting this book on the market is
to improve my condition financially,
and otherwise. I hope also to one
day be enabled to buy a home, in
which to study and write, with the
proceeds from my writings.
And wont' you help me do this?
Therefore put in your order for my
new book now before you forget it.
I thank you.

ADVICE OF NORRIS
Chairman Norris of Senate Says His
Own Plan is "Most Wonderful"
for Development of Power
Washington, July 20.?Rejection
of Henry Ford's offer for Muscle
Shoals and enactment of legislation
for development of the war bunt
projects in Alabama by a government
owned and government controlled
corporation was recommended
to the senate today by Chairman
Norris of the senate agricultural
The agriculture commutes cnairman's
views were set *orth in a voluminous
report, differing portions of
which were supported by various
members of the committee. Senators
Page of Vermont, McN'ary of Oregon,
Keys of New Hampshire, Gooding
of Idaho, Nordeck of South Dakota,
Harreld of Oklahoma and McKinley
of Illinois (Republicans) and
Kendrick (Democrat) of Wyoming,
the report stated, favored rejection
of the Ford offer along with Chair
man Norris, Senators McNary, Nordeck,
McKinley and Gooding, it was
added, concurred with the chairman
in the recommendation for government
development along the lines detailed
in the pending Norris bill.
Others, the report said, subscribed
to the recommendation that the Ford
offer be rejected. Senator Kendrick
declared in the senate after submis
sjon oi tne report, nowever, tnat ne
"would be glad to vote to approve
the offer of Henry Ford, provided a
modification is made of the time
limit of the lease." The Ford offer
provides for a 100 year lease and
Senator Kendrick explained that he
favored the 50 year maximum provided
for such leasee in the federal
water power act.
The report criticised the Ford offer
sharply describing it as "the
most wonderful real estate snecula
tion since. Adam and Eve lost title
to the Garden of Eden," and inquiring
"why a warranty deed to the
eapitol at Washington is not included
in this great transfer of government
property to this wonderful
The plan embodied in the Norris
bill was as highly praised as the
Ford offer was criticised. It was described
as "the most wonderful plan
for development of power on the
Tennessee river and its distribution
over the Southern states that has
ever been proposed in the history of
our country." Its features were outlined
in detail and the prediction
made that if adopted "it means the
transformation to a great extent of
large portions of the United States."
The report submitted today will be
followed by another from the committee
next week, presented by Senator
Ladd (Republican) of North
Dakota and supported by those favoring
unconditional acceptance of
the Ford offer.
GRAND OLD PARTY
TO INVADE SOUTH
Challenge to Democrats to Enroll
and to Register to Meet
Hugh W. Roberts in The State.
Washington, July 20.?From authentic
information reaching Wash
ington, it is quite evident that the
Republicn-as are preparing for a field
day throughout the South in the November
The unusual activity to that end
results from the work of a special
committee, of which Congressman
Bascom Slemp of Virginia is chair?
- - . . i _ i
man. The committee was instructed
to visit all of the chairmen and other
leading Republicans throughout the
South and tell them plainly that
their representation in the national
conventions hereafter would not be
allowed to continue as it has been
heretofore. There has been too many
delegates and not enough votes in
the Southern states. Hereafter,
there mu^t be at least 2,500 votes
cast in each congressional <fistrict
to permit that district to have one
representative in the national con
.1 J-1 ~
vention in 'addition to tne lour ungates
from the state at large. Twenty-five
hundred will be the minimum.
Consequently, the word has been
passed to the "faithful" to register
now, so as to be prepared to make
the necessary showing at the polls
! in November and reports received
in Washington indicate that Southern
Republican registration will pro
ceed at a rate heretofore unheard of. i
i Mr. Slemp, himself, a super active}
Southern Republican, has declined to
stand for reelection to the house of
! representatives. The reason he assigns
is that he has been here long
enough and wants to rest, but those
, who understand the situation and
i realize his devotion to the Republican
party are strongly of the opinion
that he seeks to be relieved of
his routine duties so that jhe may
devote more time to Republican
propaganda and organization work
; throughout the South.
j This situation, Democratic leaders
pointed out here today, puts the <
I issue squarely up to Democratic ^
j voters, men and women lajike,, to
' enroll for their primary elections i
and to secure the proper registra- (
tion certificates for the general elec- i
tion in order to meet the increased
Rpublican registration which is said '
now tn hp croinc nn at an PYrppdinf- i
ly high rate. L

of a camp on the fair grounds wherein
the boys of the state may spend j
