quite a number of friends from all part:

For the people of the grand old city

most deserving praises. The first man
we wet after enterning the city (tha
we knew) was Ion. 0. L. Schumpert
who is so well and favorably known hy
a large number of our I.edger readers
lie assured us that we would be wel
taken care of. We were "not long il
finding out that he wasn't mistaken.
The city was at our command. Ilte
telphone company placed itself at ou
service and the homes of the citizens
irrespective of denominational ties or
affinities, were thrown open and a cor
dial welcome extended to all.
Especially are we thankful to Mr. 1).
L. Copeland, the gentlemanly livery
man, for his kindness to us during om
stay in Newberry. lie is one of the
cleverest bachelort, we ever met and
we recommend him to any girl who
wishes to marry a first-class gentleman
and have a happy home.
We were most kindly treatt d by Rev.
W. 1. Herbert, the popular and worthy
pastor of the First Methodist church in
Newberry. For four years he was pas
