But that park, what about it? I

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
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.

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.
