"gardless of the inture, however,
it ait he~ pointed out that the rural
police situation in Laurens county Is
but one Instance of had government
in "'outhi Carolina and that the uin
satUsfeetory conditions may be traced
directly to the "government for my

It looks to us as if the delegation
is a little afraid to do anything at all

in the face of the administration. In

OUR ElRIAL STORY.
It has been a long time since The
Advertiser has published a serial
story in Its columns. However, we
believe that we have been very fortu-)
nate in securing a very readible storf
by -lallie Frminie Rih'es which start
in this issue. We would like for ihl
of our readers to begin reading it
with this issue and we are sure that
after once it is started the story will
be foilowed to its conclusion. In case
general interest is aroused in it we
will begin a new one on the comple
tion of this one and for this reason
we would like to be informed by our
subscribers whether or not they (Ie
sire this class of reading uatter. Some
extra expense and trouble is entailed
by the publication of these stories, but
if the public evidences any apprecia
tion of them The Advertiser will pub
lish them with .pleasure. We would
urge all of our readers to begin "The
Valiants of Virginia" today.

A GUARDIAN ANGEL.
We would print here just a para
graph or two from the testimony of
Dr. icleanora 13. Saunders to show the
kind-heartei ijiterest which she took
in her unfortunate patlents, as a con
trast to the picture the governor of
South Carolina would draw of her
as being the source of irritation in
the hospital for the insane. "And we
write the family the next day, because
that is the first Wak from home and
they are isolated, with a certain
amount of sadness. and we always
write them at home how they are get
ting along and w" write them fre
quently until they get accustomed to
it." 'i'hese are but the words of a
womanly woman and no one can doubt
their sincerity. Here is an instance
of her tender care of patients entrust
ed to her, as spoken by herself:
Every case at the time of her ad
mission is vaccinated against small
pox. no matter whether she has been
vaccinatedl previ ously or not. 1ivery
case young enough, and usually not
over .10, is vaccinated against typhoid
fever. I do whatev er examination is
necessary, watching them from time
to time, and every case T jot down
little notes on the case; certainly I
wut down every change for better or
for worse, and every accident is noted
and how it came about. This I write
home to the family. I economize as
mclh as I can, and when I write out
these things I have the ofice girl to
write out a statement of her own com
position. She states the facts to the
10very case as soon as it is admitted
is given special care, because it is a
terrible break from their home to
the hospital and it Is the tendency of
a great hospital to lose ight of the
individual; and tihe tendency is to in
diividual ize as much as posie and
make them feel welcome, because a
great many of them feel that they are
not. And we write the family the
next day, because that is time first
break from home and they are iso
lated, with a certain amount of sad
ness, and we always wvrite them at
home howv they ar'e getting along anti
we write them frequently until they
get. accustomedi to it. The patient is
freqjuently more happy than the fam
ily. We try to allay their anxiety by
writing as often as possible. and r
give them my addlress on a little cardi
'andi tell them wvhat they may expect,
the treatmnent that they wvill get, the
ward on which they are pllaced. I en
courage them all to let me know of
any suggestion that they wish carriedi
out and I will (do it if I can, and if I
can not I tell them frankly why.

With small pox as prevalent all ov
er the State as it is and has been, the
people of Newberry were very much
surprised at the quarantine establish
ed by the city of Laurens. We tool
that the action of our neighboring city
has done Newberry an injustice.-New
berry Herald and -News.
"Et Tu, Brute!"
The Laurens Advertiser speaks edi
torially of Nowberry as a "smallpox
stricken city". That is unkind, and
is not justified by facts.
The Advertiser tries to sustain its
position by saying:
"Certainly the board of health,
whether it endorsed the carnival or
not have allowed it to come here
from a smallpox-stricken city. That
the smallpox situation has reached
dangerous proportions can be judged
from the questions asked by Dr. Geo.
B. Cronier in Tuesday's Observer, as
"'Please tell us what the board ol
health is doing to protect this cola
munity against smallpox.
" 'if they are doing nothing, it is
up to them to tell us why.'
"if such a sensible man as Dr. Crom
or thinks the situation is threatening,
surely Laurens had a right to protect
herself against it."
Would The Advertiser say that
Laurens is a "smallpox-stricken city"
because its board of health is trying
"to protect that community against
'Dr. Cromer was simply urging en
forcement of cc':npulsory vaccination
"as an additional precaution against
the spread of the disease here"-quot
Ing The Advertisor5 own language
with referenco to Its own town.
To urge the enforcement of vaccina
tion is no evidence whatever that a
town Is "smallipox-stricken," 'but of a
desire to keep it from becoming so;
and this is as true In regard to New
berry as to Laurens or any other
As To Smallpox,
It is not the purpose of The Herald
and News to have any controversy
with the newspapers at Laurens, or
with the good people of LIaurens, in re
gard to the smallpox situation. The
facts were stated in the last issue of
The Iherald and News, and as we stat
ed at the time we do not consider
that tho smallpox situation is any
more alarming In Newberry than in
almost any other section of the State,
it was also stated that the opinion
prevalled that one of the reasons mov
ing Laurens to quarantine was to get
out of the contract for the carnival
rather than on account of any small
pox situation In Newberry. The Lau
rens Advertiser says: "While the peo
ple of Laurens are quite ready to ad
mit that the coming of the carnival
was1 a very (determuining factor in the
dleelsIon to quarantine against New
berry," wvhich is practically an admis
sion that the statement is correct that
the moving motion in quarantining
was to get out of the contract for t11e
carnival. It is true that the Adver
tiser adds: "It is probable that it
wvould have been ordlered anyway af
ter conditions as do exist were brought
The Advertiser takes pileasure in
quoting what Dr. Croamer had to say
in the Observer, and adds, "If such
a sensible man as Dr. Cromer thinks
the situation is threatening, surely
Laurens had a right to protect herself
agaInst it." We have no criticism to
make of Dr. Cromer, but <we wvill ven
ture to say that Dr. Cromer, as a cit
izen of Newberr'y, should have found
out from the board of health what the
con'dition was before writing the few
paragraphs that ho did which (10
IntImate that the conditIon was seri
ous. The board of health stated last
week that there wecre only 14 cases in
the entIre town and that all of these
eases were under strict qluarantine
and that there had been no deaths in
the town and that the eases now here
wvere about ready to lie discharged.
Thie rumor that wvent out from Lau
r-ens was that thern were 4100 cases,
whichm would indicate, of course, an
epidlemic, and such a statemnent to be0
published throughout the State is cal
culated to (10 injury to the town in a
business way. In fact we are told
that some of the delegates that were
to come here this week .to the Stu
dents' Volunteer conventIon have de
cided not to come on account f the ox
travagant reports on smallpox which
have been published. We repeat again,
there Is no opidetmic and in proportion
there are no more cases of smallpox in
Newberry than in many other sections
of the State, and that the extravagant
rep~ort sent out from Laurens, and the
quarantine placed against Newberry,
have been an Injustiee to the town
andl real injury has been the result.
We have asked the board of health to
make nn official statement as to the
cniton ...Thn Herald slha News.
