PLEA FOR A HOSPITAL.
My dear Journal:
I am very sick-am better today,
but not out of the woods by a long
shot. I have every - possible atten
tion from physicians and nurses. But
I am afraid there is some other fel
low who is as sick as I am who has
not the attention I eujoy. So my
mind turns towards that hospital we
talked about last summer. That would
make his chance and mine equal.
Can we not begin that greatly
needed work? Could not our church
es receive offerings for it next Sun
day-after urging liberal respo3nse by
our members? There is one who can
not be in the Sanctuary, but whose
check will be if his head is hot.
Our lodges of Masons, Odd Fel
lows. Knights of Pythias and similar
organizations are heartily requested
to join this Christmas movement. It
need only to start the thing, then
Greenwood's great duty to the suf
ferers will be done.
Jio. 0. Wilson.
The a- ove appeared in the Green
wood papers last week. It is equally
applicable to Newberry. Ex>cept in
Newberry since the "still born" in
cident we ;have not even heard a noise
that sounds like a hospital. Of
course we have all the secret organ
izations mentioned by Dr. Wilson
and they are all doing good and we
believe would take up the hospital
matter but it has been taken- charge
of by a committee from the chamber
of oonmerce. Maybe the movement
will spring into new life with the
dawn and growt;h of the new year.
Let us hope so. - A town the size of
Newberry could and should have a
hospital ifall would only resolve to
have it and then proceed to execute
the resolution and not let it be "still
We find that a very large propor
tio~n of our subseribers owe from one
to> several years for The H'erald and
News. We are sending statements to
all who have 'not paid to some time
in 1.90S regardless of whether a re
cent payment has been made or not
for the pmipose of letting you know
how you stand on our books and aiso
to ask that you send us something on
what you are due. More than 15,.0
subseribers are in arrears. You can
readily see how even a small part
of what you are due would in the ag
gregate make a nice sum for us. We
want to pay whiat we owe and will
gladly do so if those who owe us
- will pay what they are due. It is
such a smali matter to each one that
we cannot understand why you will
put it off. We believe you intend to
pay us. In our long expeIncne we
11Iave never ha;d ,but one subseriber
who had taken the paper for a num
ber of years to say he did not intend
to pay for it. That happened only
the other day. We 'shall take his
name from ou-r list and leave the mat
ter with him and his conscienee. Bu;
the vast majority of the people are
honest and will pay tiheir debts.
.Just now we need money and need
it to meet our obligations and we
intend this to be an earnest appeal
to those wh~o have read The Herald
and Ne.ws for many years to come
forward and pay what they are due.
'By doing this you can do urs a great
service and simply diseharge an hion
est obligation. We dislike to' refer
to this matter in 'the paper -and do
not do it often, but we want to im
press you with the faot that we
would like to have you give heed to
our statements whiceh are being mail
ed to you.
As before stated those out-of-the
cGumIy subscribers who pay no heed
to our requests and who are more
than a year in arrears will receive no
maore cop,ies of the paper after this
issue. We have been lorig suffering
and patient and no response to our
requests will be evidence that you do
not care for the paper or appreciate
We would like to continue our
visits but we must have some sub
stantial evidence of your aipprecia
'Kindly let us hear from you and
thus make glad our heart ind we will
forthwith keep thre currency in cir
eulatin by turning it over to some
one who holds our obligation.
We hope every one of our readers
may have a happy and prosperou
New. Year and live many years to

Effect January 5-Nos. 12 and
The Southern railway has announc

Newbery at 1.25 in the afternoon,
going towards Greenville.
Slight cianges will be made in the
schedules of the other trains. though
the definite schedules of these trains
have not yet been issued. It is un
derstood that the afternoon train
which now reaches Newberry at 5.19

earlier, and that the night train go
ing towards Columbia will also reach
Newberry about an hour earlier.

sisters. He also leaves a twin sister.
Oh, how they will miss him, but weep

Dearest Earle thou hast left us,

In that blessed home above.
Oh, dear Earle, thou wast lovely,
Gentle as the summer breeze,
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave so low;
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows shall
