FARMERS' UMON WORK.
Col. J. B. O'Neall Holloway Reviving
Interesting In the Union by Ex
Col. J. B. O'Neall Holloway, deputy
organizer and general field worker for
the State Farmers' union of SouttL
Carolina, has finished a campaign tour
of two weeks through Pickens and
Oconee counties, and on Wednesday
was in Marion to address a big far
mers' rally there in the interests of
the union. Col. Holloway's invitation
was through the Marion chamber of
commerce, and it was stated that be
tween 1,500 and 2,000 people were ex
pected to attend the rally. Mr. Hol
loway was invited to make the princi
pal address. On Saturday he will at
tend a meeting of the Abbeville coun
ty union, and he will devote the whole
of next week to Anderson county, be
ginning with a meeting at Five Forks
on Tuesday and concluding with a
meeting at Long Branch on Saturday.
Mr. Holloway's appointment as or
ganizer came through the executive
committee of the State organization,
of which Mr. A. J. A. Perritt, of Dar
lington, is president, the executive
committee being composed of Messrs.
A. D. Hudson, of Newberry; Douglas
McIntyre, of Marion, and L. C. Pad
gett, of Smoak. Col. Holloway has
been much encouraged in the work
which he has already done for the
union. He has revived a -number of
unions and has organized many new
unions. "At every place which I vis
ited," said Col. Holloway, "I found
the former members and a great many
who were not members interested in
the cause and expressing a determina
tion to help in the work."
Mr. Holloway said that in his trav
els he had found the farmers imbued
with the idea of organization among
the farmers for their own benefit, and
with the idea that the only way to
meet organization was with organiza
tion, but that they had been waiting
to be convinced that the organization
which they should go into would be
the proper kind of organization. The
seeming decline in interest, said Mr.
Holloway, was not because of any
lack of appreciation of the value of
the Farmers' union, when its merits
were properly presented, but simply
on account of the fact that the import
ance -of an organization which has
specifically in mind the farmers' wel
fare has not been kept before those
who will be benefited.
Mr. Holloway's campaign has been
and will continue to be educational in
its nature. In his addresses he is
urging the importance of intelligent
farming methods. For many years he
was a teacher, and he is a great be-:
liever in compulsory education. He
believes that the salvation of this
country deepnds uopn an educated
yeomanry, and that one of the great
est crimes is to allow children to
grow up in ignorance. He was very
much gratified when he attended a
meeting in the Six-Mile Baptist acas
demy, in the western part of Pickens
county; ar. the foot of the mountains.
which - . says would be a credit to
any county or any community.
Mr. Holloway is a former teacher
in the Richland school, in Oconee
county, and during his tour in that
section, he visited the school and made
an address. He stresses the idea that
Clemson .should have the agricultural
department as one of its main consid
erations, if not the main considera
Asked as to crop conditions, Mr.
Holloway said that the corn crop in
the upper part of the State where he
had been was the finest he had ever
seen, and that there was more of it
than he had ever seen in that sec
tion. The cotton crop, he said, was
"spotted," there being few good fields.
From Newberry to Greenville, he said.
the crop was very poor, there being a
air prospect only in exceptional
Col. Holloway has been stressing
throughout his campaign the -value of
education, and especially the value of
ntelligent methods In farming. The
kind of campaign which he is waging
is bound to bring forth good results.

THE COTTON MARKET.
What Is Being Paid for Cotton and
Cotton Seed in Various Sections
of the County.
There has been more or less com
plaint among some people in Newberry
as to the Newberry cotton market and
the market for cotton seed. The Her
ald and News yesterday called up buy
ers at the several markets around
Newberry and got quotations of the
prices prevailing at those markets. At
Chappells the market was quoted by
Mr. A. P. Coleman; at Silver Street
by Mr. Sheppard; at Pomaria by Aull
and Hipp; at Prosperity by J. L. and
A. G. Wise, and at Little Mountain by
Mr. C. F. Lathan.

The Newberry market was quoted
yesterday for strict good middling at
13 3-8, good middling at 13 1-4 and
cotton seed at 45 cents per bushel. It
will be seen that with the exception
of Pomaria the Newberry market is
quoted as high for cotton as any of
the others, but Silverstreet and Chap
pells were paying a little more for
A Good Popular-Price Attraction at
the Opera House all This
Beginning with "The Little Home
stead" as the opening bill on Monday
Starkey's Players have been filling a
week's engagement at the city opera
house, the character of which, taking
the prices into consideration, ought to
have drawn much larger crowds. The
talent wheih is presented is of higher
order than in many high-priced at
tractions which have been offered in
Newberry in recent years.
It is expected that "Lena Rivers,"
which is familiar to the great major
ity of the American reading and thea
tre-going public, will draw a large
crowd on Thursday night. Manager
Starkey announces that the attrac
tion on Friday night will be "The Man'
and the Brute," a scientific story bas
ed on the result of the transfusion of
blood. He says he wants the posi
tive statement made that it will not
be safe for people with weak hearts
to attend. The stirring scenes and the
intense interest which they create, he
says, have caused several ladies to
faint in audiences witnessing the pre
sentation of this play.
The Carlton sisters, both in the reg
ular cast and in their specialties, are

Citizen of September 23:
Coburn's Greater Minstrels played
to a large and enthusiastic audience
at the auditorium last night and the
entertainment that they offered w.s
of that class of minstrelsy that per
petually attracts and holds its audi
The variety of the program was
really remarkable. The spectacular
feature was provided at the closing
part of the performance, by Man
telle's Marionette hippodrome anfd
fairyland transformation which was
beautiful and artistic.
Good old fashioned minstrelsy,
however, was the strong features of
the show, and in that it scored its
real success. The voices were much
better than are usually heard in min
strels, and the dancing was of tLae
sort that brings your feet to a patter
whether you will or not.
Especially pleasing was the quar
tet which was encored time and
again. Leslie D. Barry scored a hit
in his baritone solo, and Robert C.
Hackett's bass solo, "The Armorerss
Song," was a treat.
But really, special mention is invi
dious where all voices were good and
all features up to the highest stand

Good Work by Supervisor Feagle on
Newberry's Part of Highway -
Sign Boards to be Put Up.
Supervisor Feagle has about com
pleted the section of the highway be
tween Greenville and Columbia via
Newberry and Laurens from Newber
ry to the Laurens line. He has been
at work on this section of the road for
some time, and upon the whole has
done a most excellent piece of work.
Certainly it is a great improvement
over the road before the work was
done. There are a few places the road
could be greatly improved by mixing
some clay with the sand and other
places where some sand is needed on
the clay. The only section of sand
that needs claying is a short section
just about three miles from Newberry.
The road has been widened and shap
ed up and drained on either side and
is at present in very fine condition.
If the people who live along the
road could be induced to use the split
log drag, however, after each rain, the
clay section would never get bad even
in the winter. If the road is not
dragged, however, there will neces
sarily work some holes in the road
bed and the water will stand in these
and the travel will tend to make the
holes deeper and in this way with
much travel in rainy weather the clay
section of the road will get bad. If
the road was kept dragged, however,
the water would not stand and, being
well drained on either side, the road
would never get bad even in the rainy
season. It seems to be up to the peo
ple along this road now to keep it in
good condition, and it should be a
pleasure to them to do so. They
should show their appreciation of the
work that has been done by keeping
the road in good condition.
Two grade crossings of the railroad
have been avoided at Mr. Geo. C. Glas
gow's place by changing the road and
keeping it on the same side of the rail
road. Mr. Glasgow cooperated with
the supervisor, as did the C., N. and
I. railroad, and though it required
considerable filling, this has been
done and really a better road bed will
be the resulf. Thi4 game thing
should be done on the road between
Newberry and Prosperity and at sev
eral places between Prosperity and
Little Mountain, and the railroad will
be glad to cooperate with he super
visor and the citizens In relocating the
road so as to avoid so many grade
crossings. Between Newberry and
Prosperity the road could be relocat
ed so that It would not be necessary
to cross the C., N. & L. railroad at all
between Newberry and Prosperity, and
there would be only one crossing on
the Southern just as you approach
Prosperity. This is a very important
matter and it is difficult to understand
why the people who travel this road;
be glad to cooperate with the super
and those who live along it would not
be anxious to have it relocated, be
cause it is certainly danger
ous to have to cross the railroa'd
so often. Between Prosperity and
Little Mountain there are several very
dangerous crossings, most of which
could easily be avoided.
The supervisor is finishing a little
work at iKanrds on this road now and
will then work the road from Kinards
to Bush river. After this is completed
the force that is now at Kinards will
be moved to Whitmire and the roads
out from Whitmire will be put in good
The editor of The Herald and News
in Mr. Norris' Ford touring car, driv
en by Mr. W. C. Waldrop, in company
with Mr. Norris and Col. C. J. Purcell,
drove over the road last week to take
some distances so as to have the
cross-roads and forks of the roads
posted. We drove from Newberry to
Clinton and we noticed that this see
tion of the Laurens road has not been
posted. The only places that are to
be posted are, first, the Glenn Rikard
place, 2.3 miles from Newberry, and
next the road leading to Beth Eden,
three miles from Newberry; then at,
Jalapa there is the forks of the roads
just seven miles from Newberry; just
this side of Gary's, 9.5 miles from New
berry, is a road turning to the left as
you go toward Kinards. The next
road leading out of this road is at Mt.
Olive colored church, 11 miles from
Newberry. The distance to the Lau
rens line at the old Ninety Six road
just in front of Mr. Oxner's place is
13.1 miles. These measurements
were made from the mile rock in the*
public square in front of the old court
