To Our Subserlbers.
It has been nearly six years since the
present proprietors assumed control of
-The Herald and News. During that
time we have not even sent statements
to all of our subseribers, and rarely
have we asked them for -money. We
are now mailing statements to all who
are in arrears. We find that there is a
great deal of money due u. It is a
very small matter to each subscriber,
but in theaggregate It is a big sum to
us. It is possible that statements.may
be sent to some who have paid and we
have failed to.eredit. If so, and you
will.call our attention to it we will
gladly make the correction. We would
rather give you one year's subscription
than that you should pay for one
month twice. We only want pay once.
We fud also that we have some sub
!lseribers who have not paid us any
thing duri'g all these six years. .Now
we beg of each subscriber to give heed
to this statement, and if you- can't
send the whole amount you are due us,
send us.something and send it prompt
ly. We need it. We will be glad to
see you at the office at any time.
Wishin'g you a Merry Christmas and
a Happy New Year, and hoping to
hear from you in the meantime, we re
main, Yours sincerely,

The Reporter stood on the Public
Y Square on a Saturday night not long
is ago and watched the silvery moon as it
10 rose and cast, its light across the tops of
re the houses as softly as if it looked down
le upn a green meadow in August. His
i- meditation upon the pretty scene was
broken by an interrupting voice:
n "This is a solid looking town."
n "Solid it is !"
t- And we too stood and watcned the
et passing throng and the twinkling of
r- lights in, the store and the twin kling
of the street lamps.

appear that everybody lived in "Brook

ly home to supper. The New Year is
tt not far off when Christmas readiness
te can be extended into '93.
There ought to t e alo a readiness to
n pull together to make Newberry in
h every way worthy of the name:
l- "This is a:solid looking town."
e And some of the merchants do ad
- "That's solid !"
r. This remark, which was echoed with
re a thud (not a dull one, you are sure),
y startled the Reporter as he stood be
d fore a large store window and un
coupled his train of thought that he
n was running along the stores on Pratt
d and Mollohon and Boyce.

d ties of a pair of shoes to a customer
,, by bringing his fist in an argumentative
e.. way down upon the counter. The sign
t. on the door reads: Smith & Wearn,
a, The "Newberry Clothiers." There is
1- substantial comfort here Ifor the holi

the many elegant cut-aways' (not far

-DEAR TANNEB :-I am obliged to
you for your kind letter, which reached
me a few days ago. Under no possible
circumstances or persuasion would I
-take any place offered me by South
ICarolina. I was urged to -become a
candidate for Gvernor at the last elec
tion, but I refused ; nor would I ac
cept the position if every man in the
State desired me to do so. I have set
tied my accounts between the State
'and myself, and Ilam pefectly satisfied
with the result.
I am rejoiced only to know that the
affection of my old soldiers for me re
mains unshaken, in storm as in calm.
Thaking you for kind interest,
Yours truly, WADE H?MPToN.
