Red Hair, Mosquitoes and Bustles.
The local editor of the HERALD AND
NEWS stauied out to pick up items.
Editorial matter and selections aind
clippings he was not after. He was in
search of original, pungent paragraphs
for the people-local news, for locals
they must have, whether anything
happens or not. The Asiatic cholera
may raige and spread, and investiga
tions prove that the Arctic explorers
ate the flesh of the dead ; France may
put on her wvar paint and pull China's
big pig-tail and make the heathen rage
all samee like Melican m.n ; the anti
Jewish riots may continue in Yeka
tarinosto, Southern Russia, and at
tempts be made to seal up the German
colony at Angra Pequena, in A frica;
the relief of Khartoum may perplex
and worry others besides the inhabi
tants of Wady HaIfa and Suakimn and
Keah and Kasseir and so forth;
plague, pestilence and famine, battle
and murder may range from the gilded
palaces and Orient al splendour of the
East to the dark jnngles and dirty
mud hovels of the far West, where for
long, lost centuries the star of empire
has been taking its course; slander
and scandal may continue to be the
leading question in the Presidential
race and Ben Butler try to get his re
venge in Cleveland's defeat ; anti-pro
hibition may swell one-half of the
country and spirits dwell in the other,
n hile baseball and gnats predomrinate
in Newberry, and the heat be strong
enough to run the phosphate royalty
throagh the State University into the
Columbia Canal; the big injun may
whoop and dance on the wild prairie
and k!ck up as much noise as the
boys who voted for Sligh, Pope, Schum

cable may continue dlaily to send the
electric fiash of intelligence and flood
the countries with news, circling the
hemispheres, as to wvhat is transpim ing ;
sixty-seven persons may die each1min
ute, while seventy are born, according
to a European newspaper's calcula
tion ; the earth may quake and oceans
roar and stars and planets etigage the
astronomer's eye ; all this and more,
may go on from day to day, but local
news must be found. Bitt what has
thisg to do with red hair, mosquitoes
and bustles? Nothing, only, as said
before, we started out local hunting,
and found game scarne. There was a
lumlt in the streets, with an occasional
lullaby in the houses. Not a leaf
stirred; you know the balance--but
that is old. Well, knowing the ave
rage Newberrian's desire for news, not
manufactured but genuine, we fanned
the dad-blamed gnats away, wiped the
perspiration from our face, pulled our
vest away from our suspenders and
did the saLme tihing over again. How
ever, wve succeeded In picking up a few
dots, caught on the fly here and there,
which can be found in other column;.
On our return we came across the in
formation that natural red hair is
worth from 818 to $20 per ounce ; that
a mosquito always kisses a pret ty girl
before he bites her ; and that a married
lady heard a young lady say she had eve
ry newspaper in the State in her bustle
except the Christian Adrocate, and
when she got idle she just reached
back and pulled out a paper to while
away the time.

fairs better every year, until they are

Selfishness Is one of the ugliest
traits of character. It Is a pity that so
much of It is seen. We would rather
be as poor as Job's turkey and be gen
arous and kind, than be rich as Cresus
tnd selfish and unkind. A selfish cha
aeater Is despised- by all 'good men,
socially, morally or financially. He
:hinks only of himself, nothing of
neighbor or friend ; he accepts all
kinds of favors and returns none. He
sares not If you are well or sIck, for
whlat matters It If he is well, and his
itomach Is full? This Is all he cares
nr thinks about. His house is not ded
icated wIth the beautiful motto,. "Wel
some to All," simply because you are
not welcome. He would rather have
your room tIhan your company. Save
as from a selfish man. He is a.blot on

eind smells bad, and when he dies he
