* H AULL. EDITOR.
Tuesday, August 1, 1922.
There have been many new sub
scribers added to the list during thdollar
sale of The Herald and New
and we have been unable to get th<
list corrected. We will have this
done just as soon as we can. In th
meantime, we have been forced t<
send the new subscribers in singl
wrappers and sometimes that delay
them for a day or two. We hop
to have all this corrected in a shor
We will also have the linotype re
paired this week we hope and b
able to get up more type. We an
going to make the best newspape
we have ever made and that will b<
going some. But we know how anc
we do not mind the work. It is jus
as easy as going to mill to make i
newspaper when you know how.
Those subscribers who are in ar
rears and did not take advantage oJ
our cheap sale to get caught up wil
be taken from the list just as soon a:
we can get the lisi corrected. W(
shall be sorry to part with them, bu
we know it will be only temporary
because once you have had the olc
Herald and News coming to you i'
will be like losing a member of the
family for it to cease its visits.
We understand that one of tm
candidates for congress has beer
making the editor of The Herald and
News an issue in his speeches. Our
only advice to him *is that he had
better go along and give some reason
for the people to vote for him, instead
of taking up his time talking
about the editor of this paper. W<
are no candidate for congress. Bu"*
i? he can get any pleasure out of the
job let him go to it. We offered tc
be fair to all the candidates and to
give them the columns of the papei
to give their reasons for supporting
trie Donus. we nave said mat rreo
Dominick would be elected. We
still say that, because we have that
faith in the good judgment of the
people of this great third district.
The state campaigners will be
with us in a short time and then we
will be able to get a closer viewpoint
of them, and be able the better to
size them up. Some of our people
have never had the pleasure of seeing
some of the candidates. They
are to be here on Monday, August
14. rne meeting win oe neia m zne
court house. It will be a novelty to
hear the women of the campaign
party speak. We will give all of
them an attentive hearing and then
the people can make up their minds
as to whom they desire to vote for.

EDUCATIONAL RALLY AT LAU- j
I had noticed in the papers that
there were calls for educational j
meetings or rallies in some of the i
counties, at which meetings the trustees
and the people generally were
invited to be present, but especially
the trustees so that they might discuss
together the -financial conditions
of the districts, and see what
remedy could be applied to take care
of the deficit. I had been thinking
of the same thing, but I did not want
to have the meeting until a statement
could be submitted showing
just how the districts stood, and j
then we would know just how much;
deficit we had in the several dis- j
tricts. One of these meetings was;
to be held in Laurens last Saturday,!
and another was advertised for
Greenville the same day. And both
were held. Superintendent Wilson
very kindly gave me an invitation to
meet with his trustees and the good
people of Laurens last Saturday, and
- 1*1 _ _ J1 L . - 1_
1 reaany accepted, not so mucn wnn
a view of being of any material help
in the matter of discussions, but to
show my interest and to help as best
I might be able, and to get information
myself. This meeting was held
under the direction of the various
women's clubs of Laurens, and they
gave their influence and their cooperation
and Mrs. J. S Bennett presided
and gave a hearty welcome to
the meeting. And there was a fine at
tendance of trustees and interested
Mrs. Bennett mada very graceful
and happy speech of welcome and
expressed in elegant terms the interest
the women had in the cause of
education, and how glad they were to
have the meeting: and to give what
ver aid the women might be able to
ender. She then turned the meetng
over to Mr. J. H. Sullivan who
xplained the reason for calling the
neeting, and he also discussed the
arious state laws which gave aid to
he common schools and said that
' ? >? flrjf cnmptliinp

*e done to keep these ischools going1,
nd that the matter should be called
o the attention xof the legislature,
nd especially should the trustees
nd those who knew the conditions
ake the matter to the lawmaking
>ody, and tell that body either to reeal
ite laws ot make the necessary
irovision in the appropriation bill to
arry out the law and keep the ob"gation
of the state with the various
chool districts that have complied
/ith the conditions. Superintendent
Vilson then took a number of conrete
examples from Laurens county
nd showed just how the law was
vork.ng in that county, and how
;nder present conditions it was im)ossible
for the trustees of a num>er
of state aided schools to avoid
aving a deficit except oy failing to
iay the teachers, and that was the
esult in a number of the districts.
>f course that is not right, but as
he law is now operated it is imposible
to avoid a deficit, it matters
,'ot how you work it, unless the peo >]p
iust eo down in their pockets
ind raise the money.^ Both Mr. Sulivan
and Mr. Wilson said that there
ad been no trouble with the mem)ers
of the legislature from Laurens,
'hat they had not only voted but had
vvorked for adequate appropriation
:o carry out the law enacted by the
egislature itself. I then talked to
;he people along the same lines and
nade some suggestions.
It was a -fine meeting and I be
ieve will result in good. The people
ire lacking in information along the
lines of these various state aided
jchools, and when they come to unlerstand
the real and true conditions
[ am persuaded they will demand
that their legislature provide the
lecessary funds to give to the children
of the state at least a seven
months school where the districts
comply with the conditions laid down
n the laws of the state. Resolutions
were adopted calling on the legislature
to provide the money to carry
int ifn nwn Tavps fnr <sr4ir?nls
should not be regarded as any other
tax, but rather as an investment
which will bring the biggest return,
if properly applied, of any money
che people can possibly spend.
The ladies clubs served a delicious
luncheon of ice tea and excellent and
substantial sandwiches and the meeting
was adjourned. I enjoyed my

that I could have remained
longer after the meeting, bat it teing
Saturday I hurried on home as
quickly as I could, and though it was
exceedingly hot I was home by 3
o'clock. I am thinking of having a
meeting of trustees in Newberry
county some time very soon and
I would be very glad to have the cooperation
and help of the women's
clubs of Newberry, and I
would be pleased to have them suggest
some one or two speakers to
give us information and encouragement
and point the way to get the
money to run the rural schools a iit
tie ionger. Tfte minimum scnooi
term should be not less than eight
months. Most of the schools iii this
county have had a seven months
term and only about two had iess.
Certainly in thi6 age we should not
be satisfied to have anv of our
schools have a less term than seven
months and we should have a minimum
of eight months.

J. W. Harman Cuts Throat With
Prosperity, July 29.?J. W. Harman,
well known Prosperity citizen,
copimitted suicide last night, cutting
his throat with a razor. Mr. Harman
was found, dressed in night clothes,
lying in his yard near the garage at
about 11:30 by his brother, G. D.
Harman. He was already dead from
the less of blood.
Mr. Harman had been complaining
recently of feeling unwell, but his
iamny saw no signs ujl serious mi
health. Melancholia, induced by his
illness, is supposed to have led him
to take his own life.
He w.as about 50 years of yge ar.d
is survived by his aged mother, Mrs.
Harriett Harman, his brothers, Dr.
G. D. Harman of Prosperity and J.
Fred Harman of Newberry and four
sisters, Mrs. J. Ben Black, Mrs. C.

THE LAST BRIGADE
Stooping shoulders were straightened
this morning; dim eyes for an
hour were bright again. The "long
roll" was sounding through the silence
of sirty years; it was time to
"fall in." They answered to the old
names as they took their places?
Jackson's Stonewall brigade and
Hood's immortal Texans, Pickett's
men and Stuart's cavalry, the gunners
of Poague and Breather of Cutshaw
and of Mcintosh. Every corps
of the Army of Northern Virginia
was represented; every army of the
South?Johnston's and Bragg's, Dick
, Taylor's and Kirby Smith's?was
mustered; Forrest's cavalry was ready
to spring to saddle at the first
note of the bugle call. Such a column
it was, gathered, from every
command in the South, as might have
marched in grand victorious review'
if independence had been won in
1864 and a season of rejoicing had I
been decreed in the capital of a tri- J
( umpnaui/ n<tuuu.
It was the whole Confederate army
to which the city paid homage?
the whole army of which Lee had
been given supreme command too
late. Yet it was in numbers only a
brigade. And it was the last brigade.
The consciousness of that fact,
striking the multitude while the
cheer still was on its lips, made ma-J
ny a man turn his face away, and,
many a woman weep openly*
The last brigade of the migniy:
division at whose tread a continent
shook?do the youth of this land re-;
alize that brigade contains the survivors
of the greatest army that ever
fought? Have fathers been faithful
j to their sires and have they taught
j that lesson to the little children of
i today, the grandchildren of the Con-'
federacy? Have the voung men read
Henderson's "Jackson,' Wyeth's
"Forrest" and Captain Lee's "Recollections
and Letters" of his father?
Do the pcpole who hung out those
Confederate flags this morning know
with what rich hearts' blood those
banners were dyed?
The other, the inevitable question
shapes itself, combat it as one may.
WVion tViri voa r flip nf thp last brigade
has passed, as it must despite the
prayers of the South that it be spared
a little longer?will the fourth
generation still venerate the Southern
cause? Will the inspiration we
men of today have received from
contact with thotse "gentlemen un-j
afraid" be transmitted onward cen-|
tury by century or it will slowly dis- j
appear. As some agonized on Mon-!
ument avenue this morning, perhaps
they looked up and saw Lee in
bronze. He was reviewing more of

Until Dreco The New Herb Medicine
Hundreds of medicines aro advertised
to cure rheumatism, but not one is bringing
to the public the evidences furnished
by the new herbal remedy.' Dreco.
"Dreco is the best rheumatism remedy

There is no excuse for rheumatism.
People who have been tortured for years,
yes. even so crippled that they were
unable to help themselves, tell how they

through the mighty power.of Dreco.
Dreco acts with speed. It brings its
relief quickly and pleasantly, and when
this takes place the- soreness and pnins
in joint and muscles completely disappear.
Dreco is a harmless remedy, but sure
