E. H. AULL, EDITOR.
Entered at the Postoffice at New berry, S. C., as 2nd class matter. Tuesday, June 15, 1909. Greenville and other towns and cities that have a large country trade are talking about the necessity of a rest room for the ladies who come in from the country. Ntwberry needs such a place as much as any town we know anything about. We have one of the best opportunities of any small town to have such a room. If we would only arrange with the au thorities to have a room fitted up in the old court house the place and the location would be ideal. Some thing ought to be done with this old building beside renting it out to pri vate parties for offices. The building would make an ideal public library and could be used for rest room at the same time. What do our business men think of a proposition like the one here suggested? When the party with the scout cars come into Newbery every - citizen should make himself a committee of one to extend a welcame and have a good word for Newberry. The Press Association will meet the 6th to 8th of July. We hope that every editor and publisher in the State wiho caa possibly get awaVy from home will be at the meeting. It will do all of us good to get to gether and even if you have to leave iome at the cost of getting out a lit tle less better paper for that week than you are in the habit of doing it will be well for your readers to have. you take this trip for the new inspiration it will give you for the remainder of the year. We must have a full meeting this year. We believe that the scout cars and pathfinders of the Atlanta Journal and New York Herald will stimulate t.he good roads movement and the more interest you can get aroused the more good you can do for the cause. There is nothing just now so import ant to the people of this section of the country ass'the improvement of onr highways. Anything that will help the work along should have our most hearty approval and encourage m.ent. Mr. W. L. Roddey, one of the oldest and most prominent citizens of Rock Hill, died last week aged 76 years. He was in reality t:he founder of Rock Hill and was greitly respected by all the citizens. We were in Rock Bill the evening of the day of his burial, and every business house was draped in mourning and every busi ness suspended during the hour of the funeral. We notice that Clemson College is going to extend an invitation to the Press Association to meet next year at the college and that "the college authorities will pay the expenses of a week's entertainment out of their own pockets.'' It would be better if the Press Association is to be invited, to Clemson in view of the criticisms that have been made and in order that the members may see conditions as they are that the members should go there at their own expense and not as the guests of the institution they are to write of as they see it. It is not probable that the Association will accept an invitation to hold an annual meeting there though it may be that the Association will accept the invitation to visit Clemson during the meeting in Greenville next month. The Road to Success has many obstructions, but none so desperate as poor health. Success today demands health, but Electric Bitters is the greatest health builder the world has ever known. It com pels perfect action ot* stomach, liver, kidneys. bowels, purifies and enriches the blood, and tones and invigorates the whole system. Vigorous body and keen brain follow their use. You can afford to slight Electric Bitters if weak, run-down or sickly. Only 50e. Guaranteed by W. E. Pelham & Son, Nrewberry,.S. C. * THE IDLER. * * In our enthusiasm about the scout cars and the patfinders and in arrang ing the pilot cars we must not forget that banquet we are going to get up for the C., C. & 0. road, and our ef forts to secure that road for New berry. The patfinders are alright, but we must have the Clinchfield rail road. too. Don 't you forget that. 1I am glad that these scout cars of the Atlanta Journal and the New York Herald are going to come by Newl?erry. It seems, however, that at first Newberry was not on the map. I cannot understand why Co.lumbia should be against this route. Why .4 :uhl the Record and the Sta.t, be agaiist Newberry, anywayl They have no better field for subscribers than Newberry, and unless there is sonie good reason they should help Newberry. I would like to know from whom the- information was sent! from Columbia that the route from Greenwood via Newberry was through th-ree miles of swamp at Chappells? That is not the route traveled from Columbia to Greenwood, and besides there are not three miles of swamp at Chappells. It it none of my business,. however. - -- I notice that the State says some of these papers were not before this much of an advocate of good roads. As the editor of The Herald and News may be a little timid claiming, I want to say for him that this can not mean him or The Herald and News, for I am old enough to know that The Herald and News has been advocating the building of permanent roads for many years-in fact long before automobiles were run in this section, and I know long before any pathfinders were thought of. And the editor when he was a candidate I for the legislature some eight years ago advocated the building of perma nent roads and when he was in' the! legislature introduced a bill to sub mit to the people of each county th'e question of voting bonds or a special tax for permanent road building. It was defeated because the people then seemed to be afraid of taxation in: any- shape for road work. So this' fling does not apply or mean The' Herald and News. But we are all in favor of good roads now. That reminds me of a little poem I read the other day from the Louis-' ville Courier-Journal. It runs as fol-' lows: Her Little Scheme. There was a hen Too old to lay. The farmets men Oft looked her way. She saw them at her slyly winking And so began to do some thinking. She knew that she Could earn no corn -And fricassee Might soon adorn. But boldly she the problem tackled When others layed she loudly cackled. Her little scheme Worked well indeed. Her owners deem Her worth her feed. About the yard she waxes fatter And still 'escapes the dreaded platter. You see the point. Tigere are a lot of hens in other places who have, learned how and when to ecackle and as a consequence are- considered as worth their fed in the community and ontinue to wax fatter. It is alright I am glad to have them cackle late1 than never to egale at all. I was wondering tonight if any body besides me and the children ever: 'read or cared to read Buster Brown' in the "funny paper,'' as we child ren call it. In the current issue is Ahown how he played a trick on' Trandpa. I do not propose to try to tell you t.he trick. You can get the paper and read it for yourself. It would be worth your while but I want to quote a part of the resolution which Buster resolved after the fun was over. H'e says: "This disease of growing old is a nuisance. I'm going to stay young as long as I can, cul tivate enthusiasm and keep interest ed in everything nice. 'Unless you become as little children you 'shall in nowise enter t'he kingdom of heav-' en.' Thats easy to see. Children are honest, they are, temperate, get big sleep, love one another, love nature, they 'believe things, have faith and trust. Isn't that enough to make them happy ? Happiness is the king dom of heaven. The blase, old, sel fish, conceited glutton or miser can't get into heaven because he has walled heaven in with selfishness. The eye ofa needle is a subway compared to his chance of being happy.'' Now don't you think that contains meat and good met~ We all ought ' rema~in \ng in !iid and leart :V ta. we migh retainl the faith aid trust of little children and that we might, love one another more, that we might believe more, and thus be hap py. We are the builders of our own fortunes and the moulders of our own characters and the more trust we have the more faith we have in one anoth er, the more kindness we show, the better will be the structure that we will erect and the more enduring. Try it and I guarantee it. will make a better man and a better woman of you and you will be so pleased with the experiment you will wonder you could ever have done otherwise. There is'no room in heaven for the selfish, conceited, miserly being and if he were there he would not be happy. --o And yet how some o. us do love money. And how selfish some of us are. It is not a crime to be rich or to accumulate money. It is rather an evidence of thrift and of obedience to the command to use your talents. It is a sin, though, to worship money and to measure character and man hood and everything else by the mon ey standard. And it is a crime to be supremely selfish fo.r in this way you s:hut out all the happiness from your soul in this world and in the world to come. -0 I hear the farmers say that the rains are ruining their crops. This cannot be for this country has never yet failed to make a crop but no doubt the rains are keeping the farm ers from getting the grass out of the crop. It is all for the best and will come out right. Have faith 'and trust. The rains seem to ha-e kept the street force cutting grass, for I have not seen them doing any permanent work, or even partial permanent, or nominal permanent work for two or three weeks. The little one man cart for. the cleaning of the paved streets I heard had arrived but I have not seen it at work on the street. Why not give it a trial. There are so many places where the streets need work it does seem a. pity to kep the force sweep ing the streets twice a day when one man and eart colud keep this place clean all the time. If it is here it to work and let us all see how it gets along.. We ought to be getting that wagon yard arranged before the fall season comes on. Now is the time. I don't feel good today but I want permission and space to try my hand on writing something about this if the editor will permit. The Idler.. Logic of the Weather. Sometimes strange difficulties a.re enountere.d by the young ladies who are -endeavoring to teach Christianity to the Chinese in Greater New York, says the. New York Times. One of the most conscientious as well as one of the brightest and pret tiest of these teachers was attempting in a Harlem Sunday school recently to inculcate upon the "heathen' mind of a sleek-looking Mongolian the les son of charity toward all.
