Geo. A. Wright, of the First Baptist church of Newberry. Mrs. Langford was 52 years old, and for the past 'yeair and a half was an invalid, the victim of that dread dis ease, tuberculosis. She bore her lin gering illness with rare Christian resignation and patience and was pre pared for the hour which brought to her soul the eternal rest that awaits the saints. Beautiful was the devo tion of the husband throughout the long illness, and his tender. solicitude for the dying wife during that period was touching. Mrs. Langford was a consecrated member of the First Baptist church of Newberry and a woman of lofty and noble impulses and purpose. She was a daughter of the late Joseph and Eustacia Goggans, of the Bush river section of Newberry county.

THE CITIC ASSOCIATION. Doing Things-Not Great Things But Useful-A Great Deal More Could be Done. The Civic association in connection with the trustees of Rosemont ceme tery have let the contract for rebuild ing the pavilion in the cemetery. The association agrees to pay two-thirds of the cost and the trustees one-third. This is a much needed improvement, as the old pavilion had about rotted down. The Civic association is also at work in connection with the city au thorities in beautifyng the vacant lot on the side of the railroad and near the water tank of the Southern railway. There are other improve ments that the association has under advisement and which will be taken up very soon. Of course the association can not accomplish a great deal without the co-operation of the officials and the citizens of the town. If every citizen of the community would become a member of the association and con tribute but a very small amount a great deal of work could be accom plished in beautifying and keeping clean the streets and the premises. Great things can be done by co-opera tion, but. it is uphill business when these things are undertaken by a few while the great majority stand off and criticise anA kick and knock.

On Wednesday morning, June 8, ai the home of the bride's father, Miss Ethel Byrd Duncan and Rev. Marnor Claude Riser were joined in holy wed ~lock. Promptly at the appointed time the groom came in accompanied by the4 best man, Prof. C. W. Riser, of New berry college. The -bride was ac companied by the charming anm graceful maid of honor, Miss Jessit Duncan. The house was beautifully decorat ed with ivy and daisies, the latter be ing the. class flower of 1904, of whici both of these young people were members. The bride is the daughter of Mr and Mrs. S. M. Duncan, of the Jalaps section. She has for years been or ganist of Bush river church ani teacher of the Jalapa school. She will be missed far and wide, because Sh4 is beloved by all who know her. The groom is the son of Mr. James Riser, of Leesville. He is now pas tor of the Lutheran church of Mad isonville, Tenn. Mr. Riser is every inch a man. The happy couple spent Wednesday night in Columbia. The next morning they went to Leesville to visit the groom's parents. The ceremony was performed by the groom's brother, Rev. Y. von A. Riser. After June 17 Rev, and Mrs. Risei will be at home at Madisonville, Ten. The Hoge School. The closing exercises of the Hoge school took place at the Bethleherr church on Wednesday and Thursday nights, June 1 and 2, 1910. The con test of the ointh grade, which took~ place on Wednesday night, was un usually interesting, the declamations being well jendered. The successful contestants were Loula Mae Pratt and Estelle Gallman, who were awarded with first and second prize respectively. The program of Thursday night was furnished by the members of the tenth grade. There were seventeen to complete that grade. It is very generally agreed that this exercise far surpassed those of former years. That the school is making substan tial progress year by year can not be doubted. The attendance has reach ed nearly 500 this year. When you distribute these among five teachers the principal included, you will gel some idea of the marvelous work~ these teachers are doing. The trus tees of our city schools have recog nized this fact, and they have added one more teacher for another year. This is great help to the school, and it is hoped that, as early as practi cable, they may see their way to help more in the same direction. B.L. FOUR-INCH MAINS. Experience That a Property Holder Has With the Insurance Compa nies in Regard Thereto. Editor The Herald and News: I bave no desire to kick, but, being ask ed to give my experience as to a four inch water main, and thinking that to kick you ought to kick before and nct ,.fter. I freely give my experieic. I have a six-inch water main to the of fice, and from there into the yard I have a four-inch water main When ever I try to get my insuranc6 down to the rate I think I am entitled to, this is what the insurance peopia tell me: "Your water supply is n,t s'an dard, you have a four-inch Ma- and you ought to have a six-inch main." This is the only reason they give me for not reducing my rate. Respectfully, J. H. Wicker. Will Wallop Clinton.

John Henderson. C-.'..: THE FLAGS OF CO. "B." President Drayton Rutherford Chap ter Says all That Was Done Was to Honor Veterans. - To the Editor of The Herald and News: Will you please print the fol lowing statement: At the request of the survivors of the Williams Guards, I secured the' flags without any trouble whatever, from Mrs. L. -1. Speers, not in time,, however, for May 10. I immediately informed Col. 0. L. Schumpert that I had the flags in my' possession and asked him to request one of the survivors of the company to be prepared to present the flags of-: ficially to the chapter June .. Capt. J. Wistar Gary, who was a member of the Williams Guards when organ ized, was expected to present these: flags to the chapter, but for some rea son was absent In the programs printed in both The Herald and News and the Ob server, it was stated that the presen tation of these flags would take place June 3. There was not a survivor of the, Williams Guards piesent, a fact: which neither Col. Schumpert nor the chapter should be held accountable; for. At my request, Col. Schumpert presented the flags and in doing so,: plainly stated that he was not a mem ber of the Williams Guards. He also stated that Capt. Gary was a member when organized, but was afterward a member of a cavalry company. One would have supposed that the spirit of conradeship was sufficiently strong among the veterans of New berry county to warrant the steps: taken in the presentation of the flags in question, as not only the surviv ors of the Williams Guards, but the survivors of all companies from Newberry county are now members of the James D. Nance camp, with Capt. Gary as commander, and Col. Schumpert as adjutant. If the Drayton Rutherford chapter has stepped beyond the boundary line prescribed by the survivors of the Williams Guards, it was not so in tended. All that has been said and done was meant to honor the sur vivors and their sacred banners. These flags are still in the hands of the chapter and perhaps it will be well for the survivors of the Williams Guards to call a meeting at an early day and decide when and how the chapter shall place these flags in the relic room's in Columbia. Awaiting~ further instructions and in behalf of the Drayton Rutherford chapter 102, U. D. C., Newrberry, S. C. Mrs. James A. Burton, President. Mr. Peterson's Lettew. My attention has just been called to the letter of Mr. W. G. Peterson with regard to his efforts to get pos session of his company's flags, and I ,wish to say that the following para graph in his letter is incorrect: "I then appealed to Mr. G. B. Crom er, who was the administrator of Mr. Speers, and he said that we were clearly entitled to the flags and thought there would be no trouble in securing them, but after - consulting with Mrs. Speers, ,he informed me that the family declined to give, them 'jUP." His memory is at fault. I did not say that the survivors were learly' entitled to the flags, for I did not know. When Mr. Peterson mention ,ed the matter to me I told him that the flags were not in my hands as ad ministrator of the estate of Mr. Speers, and that I had nothing to do with them. I made no effort to get them from the family of Mr. Speers. Before he mentioned the flags to me, Mr. Peterson had pressed the matter in a manner that was offensive to the widow and daughter of Mr. Speers, and my recollection is that they said he threatened to bring suit against them. They spoke to me of' Mr. Pet erson's conduct, and it is possible that I did tell him that they refused to surrender the flags, but he had found this out before he spoke to me. I suggested to Mr. Peterson that, in stead of presping the matter in such a way as to annoy and irritate Mrs. Speers, It would be better for him to have Col. Schumpert or some other friend of the family to ask Mrs. Speers to turn over the flags to one of the camps; and I had dismissed' the matter from my mind until my at tention was called to Mr. Peterson's letter today. IIf Mr. Peterson had used a little of the tact that was due to the bereav ed wife and daughter of his old "comrade," he might have saved him self from the reproach of now need lessly wounding them afresh by par ading their natmes in the newspapers. Geo. B. Cromer. June 9, 1910. U. D. C. Notice. The Drayton Rutherford chapter will meet with Mrs. J. H. West next Tuesday afternoon, June 14, at 4.30 o'clock. Mamie E. Schumpert, Secretary.
