A CLAIM ON OUR BUSINlSS MEN.
The movement to raise mo\ney tor
new building for Newberry CoAllege i
of more than passing interest to oo
town and deserves the hearty suppt'
of our business men. The eollego is
Newberry institution and the move
ment is a Newb errv enterprise. A few
days ago d telegations were in our towi
making bids of $4\.0k each to th
Methodist eon ference for the hvatioi

brought here by the college is a stnali
pmrt of its advantage to the contlll
ity. The register of aitlmnti shOW:
that ab oit vortung ;eople of this towr
graduated at Newberry College. ant
that more than tlirty of its graduates
are now eiti;!ens of the town. This
does not take into account the large
n1tuber of graduates in the county out
side of town, or the still larger ilmlilbet
of persons who attended the college
but did not complete the course.
The value of t he inst itut ion as a moral
and intellectual force in the communtity
cannot 'be mcasured in dollars and cents;
and the teal n\orth of the college lies
in the great work it is doing to de
velop the inteliligence and character of
The growth of t he college has made
it necessary to add to its inatterial equip
mnent, and the LIutheran Synod has be
guin a IlioVem11eit to raise $25,000 for
building purposes. Every dollar spent
in needed buildings for the college will
be a dollar wisely invested for the dle
velopment. of this town. We repeat,
it is our college: and Newberry re
ceives far greater benefit from it than
it can possibly contribute to any other
part of ith- State. The town receives
the lion's share of whatever measure
of prosperity conies to the college.
There is no danger that the college
will move away, -it is fixed. Iut it
must move forward. Twenty-five years
ago the little town of Newberry wisely
gave $15,800 to get the college. What
will the larger town of Newberry now
give to increase its equipment and hell
it forward in its career of usefulness
It cannot stand still; it most. move for.
ward or backward. It needs larger
quarters in which to do its work; and
in some way, we have no doubt, it wil
get. the new building whether the towr
contributes to its erection or not, but. i
greatly needs the aid of our busines;
nen, and the bare facts of the casi
should impel them to come forwarn
lIn'omptltly and generously to tihe sep
por't of' tihis worthly and valuablle entetr
pr1ise. The churchi that is backinig thit
college (does riot number I0,000 mremi

Tire sp)irit displayed by both the Yor

This, however, is seldom done and t
editor of the Enquirer deserves ti
commendation and the thanks of
people who love a clean, pure newsp
