Hurrah for Fairfield! Ansel
and Lyon carry the county
despite the fact that Fairfield has
been counted upon as a dis

matter in the various pape.-s of
the state it would seem that

The grand jury will make its final
presentment for this calendar
year at the court of general ses
sions next week. It is to be
hoped that this report, which
will deal with the financial
affairs of the county, will b e
carefully made. The examina
tion of the books of the various
county officials is too important
a matter to be dealt . with in a
half-hearted way. -
A genuine attack of good road
fever prev ailing throughont the
county at this time would prove
a great blessing. Good roads are
the best paying investment that a
people can make for their en
joyment of life and the increasing
the value of their real estate and
stimulating industries now im
possible on account of the lack
of facilites in getting their pro
ducts to market.
Rock Hill will not issue any
more licenses for bucket shops.
Good for the town and for Mayor
Roddey, whose determined stand
brought about this wise action on
the p art of the council. Now, let
the State of South Carolina fol
low the good example of Georgia
and North Carolina and pass a
law putting the bucket shops out
of the State so that no town
council can license these gam
bling institutions. Away with
the buckets shops.
The present indications are
none too flattering for a high
price of cotton this fall. As
heretofore we do not dare to give
any advice as to the matter of
holding cotton. However, with
the time for the sowing of grain
at hand we again want to advise
that ihrmers do not neglect the
grain crops. There is no better
way for the improving of the
lands than the sowing of them in
grai'n-and then following the next
summer with peas. It has been
demonstrated over that there is
no better profit to the farmer
than that results in the increased
value of his lands. The sowing
*of grain will be a step towards
reaping this much desired profit,
that will be a constantly paying
dividends each succeeding year.
The opening of the schools
throughout the county during
this month brings the parents
squarely to consider the issue of
what they are going to do for
their children in the matter of
educating them. There is neede d
no argument at this time to con
vince any thoughtful parent that
the best place of all for the boy
or the girl is in the school room.
Nor should there be any need of
argument to impress upon them
that the right time to start tiie
pupils is the first day of t b e
session. Every day there is
delay in entering a pupil that onae
is at a loss and the work of the
*school in a measure is hindered.
The wise parent is going to put
his boy and his'girl to school and
have them there on* the openiag
day or just as soon thereafter as
possible. If any boy or girl is
kept home to do some work in
stead of being required to go to
school, the work should certainly
be required of them. If there
is anything that is heartsickening
it is to go into' a community and
find boys and girls kept away
from school on the pretense that
their services are needed at home
and then not required to do the
work for which they are sup
Soon the colleges will be open
ing and from the present indi
cations the attendance updn the
colleges of South Carolina this
year will be the largest in the
history of the State. This is a
most gratifying condition and
bespeaks volumes for the future
of this section, The dema~nd for
men and women of education is ~
constantly increasing and to meet
this demand is the growing need
of the hour. The parent who is 1

give them the best educational
advantages Parents of ano L.
imited means wih be amply re
?aid if by making sacrifices they
:an make it possible fbr their
boys or their girls to get the
benefits of a college education.
The bny or the girl, whose parents
are not able to send them to col
lege, will find a rich reward for
themselves and their parents in
the years to come, if they will
devise some means for getting
an education. In the matter of
getting a college training the old
adage, "where there is a will,
there is a way," applies with
peculiar force and has b e e n
demonstrated so many times that
no one need have doubt as to its
It is a matter of regret to us
that in the first primary the Hon.
A. Homer Brice failed to receive
enough votes to re-elect him as a
representative of Fairfield county
in the general assembly. Mr.
Brice is a yodng man of fine parts,
successful in his business under
takings and of positive convic
tions on public questions. While
he did little talkingin the legisla
tive halls, his position was always
well known to his colleagues and
he won the admiration of all for
his decided and positive stands.
It was always known how he was
going to vote and he was always
there to cast his vote. He was
heartily against the state dispen-'
sary and equally in favor of
compulsory education, in both of
which positions he was in our
opinion altogether right. In
looking after the financial in
terests of the county from t b e
standpoint of a representative he
took a very decided interest, in
troducing the bill providing for
an election on the issuance of
bonds. All in all he served his
county faithfully and well and it
is a misfortune for Fairfield that
his views on the dividing question
were such that he was left at
home. He retires for the moment
from public life with a record for
a faithful discharge of his duty
that is all to his credit and such
that will make his services needed
at a later time under a change of
opinion in this county on the
dispensary, as there is sure to be.
The continued rains have caused
a considerable amount of discour
agement among the farmers in
this section. It is feared that
cotton is right badly damaged.
The protracted meeting at Rock
Creek church, lasting from August
26th until the 30th, was very well
attended, though there were no
accessions to the chuich.

The fall sessioh of Mt. Zion
Institute will commence on Mon
day September the 17th at nine
o'clock. The coursed of study is
practically the same as that of
last session; wherever it was
possible the principal has adopted
ihe books chosen by the state
board for the schools of the state.
It is especially desirable that
all pupils be present the first day.
It saves time for the teachers and
gives the pupil the advantage of
getting started to work at once.
Parent's are asked to co-operate
with ._e teachers in seeing that
pupils are present on time during
the whole year. A tardiness of
a few minutes in itself is a small
matter, but the example is a very

A Gentle Reminder.
The columns of The News and
Herald are not used for abusing
subscribers in arrears by saying
naughty things about them or to
republish expressions of t h i s
kind. However, as the cash-in
advance system is not strictly
adhered to, it is found necessary
now, and then to remind those in
arrears not to overlook this little
matter. As court will be in ses
sion next week, there should be
many to come forward with the
cash for what they are due. Of
course, if you are not going to
be in town yourself, why it will
be easy enough for you i send
it in by some one else. We are
confidently expecting many sub- I
scribers to respond to this little!

Very few men reap any kind
of a reward with outhustling. When
you feel that things are coming
your way you ought to hustle the
more and make the achievemeni
still greater and greater. The
same argument applies to town
as well as individuals.

But Cured by Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
"When my boy was two years old
he had a very severe attack of bowel
complaint, but by the use of Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy we brought him out all right"
says Maggie Hickox, of Midland, Mich,
This remedy can be-depended upon in
the most severe cases. Even cholera
infantum is cured by it. Follow the
plain printed directions and a cure is
certain. For sale by Obear Drug Co
