The .Herald and News has so fre
quently called the ;--tention of the
business interests of Newberry to
the importance of a live chamber of
commerce that we approach the sub
j*t again only on account of .the
realization of the great importance
- to any community of a live organi
zation of this character.
We frankly admit that it is dis
couraging, and somewhat embarass
ing, to be constantly speaking of a
subject which concerns the welfare
of the entire- community, when
there is so little interest manifested
in it by ;those who are' most con
eerned in its success, and not only
so, but those who would reap the
greatest benefits from a live organi
The president of our Chamber of
Commerce is not engatged in active
business, but he has taken an ac
ti* interest in any effort to do
those things which would advance
the interests of the cormmunity.
That he has not haa the cooperation
anf support of the business inter
ets neelds not to be told.
Another meeting will be held
me-t Thursday night in the rooms
of the Chamber of Commerce, and
the president has some things to say
which wil affect all business inter
ests in Newberry, and he requests
us. to urge that every member of
the Chamber of Commerce . will be
present to hear him. He declines
to give out in advance what he has,
but we 'are sure that, it will per
tain to those things which are for
the advancement of this community.
What Newberry needs is a leader
who has breadth and is willing to
spend some time as well as some of
his means in working for the public
'welfare. We believe that there are

Death of an Ifant.
On Frida:y, December 3, 1909, the
spirit of Dear Thompson, the little
son of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Lester,
was called to its fairer and better
home. Little Thompson -was spared
only 12 days to be a bright ghtht in
that loving home.
Thompson, thou wast mild and love
Gentle as the summer breeze.
Pleasant as the air of evening,
When it floats among the trees.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
Then in heaven with joy to greet
Where no farewell tears are shed.
