NEW YEAR GREETINGS. *
To the Writers who Weekly Chroni
cle the Various Items of News of
Local Happenings from over the
? County, Greeting:
It is with genuine pleasure that I
send, through the columns of The
Advertiser, sincere New Year greet
ings. To the one who sounds forth
the praises of Hillside, the garden
spot of the county (in his estimation)
though I'd like here to Inform him?
"there are others"! Though he has
but recently entered our ranks, yet
since he came with his cheery week
ly letter (even though he does blow
the horn for Hillside rather loudly) I
often wonder how wc did without his
letter before. From Hillside to the
pretty little town of Cross Hill Is a
right good sweep but from that good
ly little city there has come a weekly
letter) and if I mistake not, by the
same correspondent since The Adver
tiser was founded) that Is ever worth
the reading?and in things that per
tain to the uplift of all that is good
in civic life?you will find the Cross
Hill correspondent standing square to
front (though I don't mind telling you
dear fellow quill driver, that once in
the long ago I considered yon on the
wrong side! )
.lust a short step to the hustling
town of Mountville?though the go
ings and comings of her citizens are
very nicely chronicled, yet we can
but miss the versatile writer 01 oth
er days and we dream of "the harp
that once through Tara's halls"?we
will gladly welcome this genial soul
among us again from the little town
And here's to the ever faithful lit
tle lady (I don't know really, but
don't any one try to convince me
that any "mere man" could so grace
fully and fluently chronicle events as
does the one who hails from the am
bitious sister city of Clinton.) Dear
staid old town! How could you ever
get it into that steady head of yours
that It was time you were being a
capilol of a county and that Mus
grove. Methinks when the voting
time comes, you will bear in no un
certain tones from the "sovereign vot
ers" of the independent state of
Jacks. The verdict will be?"While
wo love Clinton some yet we love
Laurons more"! And so it goes all
over the county. From Poplar Springs
to Tylorsvllle, from Princeton to EDkom
there comes weekly letters that tell
us of friends and "their going out
and coming in."
There is no use waiting till the
grave closes over one before voicing
the appreciative word. Personally and
I believe I voice the sentiment of all
local correspondents, I wish to tell
the editor that he is giving us a pa
per worth while. In all his editorials
he has pro/en himself to be the up
holder of all that Is for the good of
South Carolina. I for one do not be
lieve that "all newspapers are liars!"
To the editor, to each and every
one of you who give us weekly let
ters may the year 1013 be generous
and kindly and friendly. \ah each of
us as we give the little bit of neigh
borhood news, also give a push now
and then to uplift the state I feel we
all love. There's a very Important
subject now before us?one that
should be agitated till It ceases to bo
a thing "hoped for" but one that real
ly "Ik"?that Is compulsory education.
