They say that comparisons are
odious, and Indeed they are, some

paring is an ever present, existent
mental state, If never expressed.
Within the four months Just passed,
there have appeared tiefere tho Lau
1 roils people two speakers from our
neighboring city of Newberry, mem
bers of the same profession.
One of these speakers addressed
an audience In the park during the
month of August. A largo crowd of
Lnurena voters heard him; they re
all the nature of his speech, the ap
peal be made, amid the reception given
htm. The other, appeared in the
pulpit of the I'M ist Presbyterian
church last Sunday morning, and
tlgaill at the opera house Sunday af
ternoon. Those present readily re
call the manner of man he was, as
a very word of his address clearly In
dicated; they recall tho nature of his
appeal; they, by a glance about the
bouse knew the class at audience lie
had, ami the reception givon him.
Two speakers from Newberry, of the
same profession but not nliko.
We congratulate ourselves that we
have bad the privilege of shearing
more than one Newberry orator, and
ve congratulate Newberry upon the
possession of more than one kind.
