Entered at the Postoffice at New
ierry, S. C., as 2nd class matter.
Tuesday, September 28, 1909.
The property purchased by the
Graded school trustees for the new
school building and for the high
school has been called the Pope
property. Many of the younger gen
Eration may not know that this prop
erty was owned, and the home built
by Col. Simeon Fair and it should be
designated as the Fair building. The
present house was built ,by Col. Sim
eon Fair about 1840 and he lived in
it until his'death. Mrs. Pope is his
daughter and has .continued to oceu
py it since the death of her father.
There are few as well built houses
5n Newberry, if, in fact, any.
Col. Fair was solicitor of this cir
euit for more than twenty years, and
during a long life a leading member
of the Newberry bar.
The only mistake the trustees made
was not in taking the first offer made
of this property which included some
eight or ten acres of land.
The only way -to secure a convic
tio in a bribery case is to have some
of the parties to give the deal away
and the Columbia jury did not seem
to put much confidence in that sort
of testimony. It was given on the
promise of immunity from prosecu
A good deal of space is given in
this issue to the trial of Farnum.
The jury acquitted him. There are
several other cases along the same
line. Attorney General Lyon says
he will not abate any of his ardor in
ihe prosecution of the other cases
because he failed of a verdict in.this.
'Bhe editor of The Herald and News
has attended every opening, with one
er two exceptions, of Newberry col
lege since September 1877, and t.he
same as to commencements. If Dr.
W. G. Houseal was at the opening
in Salter's photograph gallery it was~
mre than 28 years ago when he was
a student under Dr. Cromer. With
h1e exception of Dr Cromer and Mrs.
e. W. Holland there were none pres
ent on Friday who has attended as
many openings as the editor of The
Herald and News.
We are gratified at the remarkable
and- steady and sure growth of New
bary-college, but we do not want to
see it grow too big. We abelieve iii

What we started to say was. th.at
during all these years that we have
attended' the opening exercises of the
cellege there were two other faithful
friends, not graduates- of Newberry,
hat true friends, who were always
present with words of welcome and
cheer and good advice to the young
student body, who were absent, last
Fiday, and not one of the speakers
-well we missed them, probably it
'was because for so many years it
has been our part to write up these
openings. These two friends were
absent because physically unable to
be present. The gentlemen to whom
we refer are Justice Y. J. Pope and
Dr. E. P. McClintock,both were there
last year, though at that -time they
were physically not strong, but they
both bad their words of good cheer
aid good advice.

and we are glad to see it. With one
of its own sons at the helm, who is

over in to the river. We never did

"In 1903," continued another of
fieer, "I was driving across a bridge
near Marquette. The Smoky was boil

were in the buggy and we had just
got into the middle of the bridge
when the darn thing sort o' raised
and started. But the queer part of it
was it went up stream. It was an ex
citing ride and we expected to be
killed at any minute. A mile up at
the next section of the bridge had
been washed out, and by George, this
,bridge dropped rigki in place where
the old one stood and we drove off.
We couldn't understand it, but we
looked bark and saw the biggest fish
we had ever laid eyes on. You won't
believe it, but that fish raised th)
bridge, swam up stream a mile and
