Have you ever seen a'more beeautiful fall! Do you reali that. you live in one of the most beautiful: corners in this whole world? Aie you thankful for the many blessings w4ich you en joy? Do you love your neighbor as yourself, and do you know who your neighbor is? Do you speak kindly of him, or do you say harsh and un kind things every time you open your mouth? I don't want you to answer me these' questions, but some of them you will have to an swer some time. Do you speak "ell' of your town, or do you kiQck it..every time things don't go as:you think they ought to go, or as you' want' them to goI Aie you working -shoulder to shoulder with your- neighbor to build up your comiuunity, or are . you shrugging your old shoulders and lodking wise and suspicious every time some one asks you about the town or some cit izen in it? Let one who has seen a good deal of the world and the peo ple who inhit it, and who has been knocked around a good bit whisper gently in your ear that you a't help yourself by saying un kid things about the people who live ,*Pg you, nor can you .help the aqtnunity by it. Then let everybody get together v#$h everybody else and help push bg old town along, and if thing do't go every time just like wA #nk they should, keep pushing, and believe that what is, is best and Q71Aings will.come to himiio waits butk who labors while he, waits and who does right himself But that park, what about it? I think I will hear a noise very soon that sounds like a park. You just watch and see if I don't. I walked around a little-just a little-'-n Sunday-hardly what you could -call a constitutional-just to see if I could see any evidence of the work done cleaning up week. I am afrai4 the broom brigade was not busy, and maybe the advice ] gave some time ago' as to advance im the price of brooms was not heeded; and, therefore, nobody had a brooms or if anybody had one he or she was afraid to use it as it might wear out. And, then, I suppose these town folk don't know anything about the dog wood bush broom. That is what I had to use when I was young to sweep the yards. The ignorance of simple things by some of these city folk is awful and alarming. It is a great pity. Some of the paved side walks, did look awfully horrid. How easy it would be just to brush them off in front of your door every morn ing. And did you see how uninvit ing some of them looked around the hurhes? Is it not the Bible that tells us cleanliness is next to godli ness? in full a communication signed "Ar. gus,'' in which Argus very' strongly urges the cleaning of the pavements in front of the stores for this week: especially, and for every other week in the year. The communication is along a line on which I had already written, and Argus is right. Argus says that "janitors and porters should be required to do this, as in all other cities.'' Whoever does it the pavements ought to be kept clean. The editor sent for me and hand ed me the communication from Ar. gus.. In referring to the cleaning o: the streets it is very timely and well put. The Argus will recall that Th4 Idler has long been urging that the property owners ought to sweei clean in front of their own doors Argus in her communication says that sometimes it seems that ladies dresses are taking the place of brooms It has looked that way to me some times. Let's all get together and keep a clean town. A clean town is worth a great deal. The Idler. FARM BOYS' bORIEST FINE WORK BY BOYS OF: THE COUNTY. Saturday Was Exhibition Day, at Which Time Prizes Were Award ed.-Excellent Addresses. Tibe prizes in the boys' farm con test of Newberry county were award ed at an enthusiastic meeting of the boy farmers and of the older farm ers, as well, held in the old court house on Saturday morning, at which time addresses were maide by Con gressman A.: Frank Lever, of. Lex-; .ington, and Messrs. Ira W. Williams and A. G. Smith,. of ,Columbia. Mi. Williams is 'State agent for South Carolina of the farm demonstration work undei- the supervisiono 'f the national government, and Mr. 9niith is at the ihead of the farm 'anage ment department in this Siff6 which is under the same depart of the national government. Some time ago Hon. 0. B. Martin, former State superintendent of edu cation, who -has in charge the boys' demonstration work in this State, took up the matter of this work among the school boys of Newberry county. County Superintendent of Education J. S. W!heeler took the matter in charge for Newberry, and in the movement he had" the hearty support and' co-operation of County Agent S. M. Duncan, of the demon stradaon work. The sympathy of a umber of eitizens of the city was enlisted, and. prizes were offered to the boys in a. number of contests which were inaugurated. It was 1*i the.- deciding of the winners in these. *Eotests and,- the award of the pri-e that the meet ing was'eldsesr Siturdayy ana in' 4iti the- farms ofithe county and the people..of the eounty gbnekally were invited to see the exhibits anid to hear the addresses of the speak ers who had accepted, invitations to be present, Several- of the contests by the boys were close. All of them did re markably well, and especially in view of the fact th-at it was very late in the season before the seed. were distributed and the boys were able fto get~to work, and in view of the further fact that the seasons have been very much against. them. The boys, however, were not discouraged, and..it was a fine showing they miade on'Satuiiday mornfing. The Herald and News has been active in seeking to encourage a-nd to promote interest in this move ment among the farmer boys of Newberrf' county, -believing as it does that it'means a gret' deal for the county,'and it' is glade o record the success of the movement as evi idenced ,by .the first coritst. .It is hoped tha there 'will be even great er interest nexf; ye'ar, andzthat there will be inaiy mnore boys eiilisted. in the moveieffd.

The judges in 'this contest were Col. J. B. 0O'Neall Holoway anid Mr. Alex D. Eudson. Unfortunately, in the rush of the morning the report of one young man I was overlooked-that of Master I Clyde Epting, whose yield was 27 bushels to the half acre, and in this connection the committee' have is sued the following explanation: "Editor Herald anid News: In justice to one of the young men in the corn contest for the greatest yield on'i one-half acre, I desire to say in be half of the committee that it was appointed on the spur of the mo ment and necessarily made its in vetian in haste, and overlooked Lne~ spmnlRu rupurb VI-? -luLzUr Epting, whose handsome yield- of 27 bushels on one-half acre entitles him to share the second honor and award with Master Carrol.Leitzsey.
