The Week's Entertainments Are the
Best That Can be Afforded-So
cial and Intellectual Feast.
The object of the Newberry Chau
tauqua association is to take the sweet
flower-scented month of June and set
it apart as the special time for New
Lr-rr3 to attire herself in robes of so
cial and intellectual pleasures. The
origin of this association sprang from
an unselfish and public spirit; and its
promoters do not expect financial
gain. They will be satisfied if the
public co-opie.rate in making the Chau
tauqua self-sustaining.
Looking Backward.
Newberry has a long and unsullied
history. No one will deny. however,
that our people 'have been too con
tented. The torwn for a good many
years did not have, that buoyant and
contagious spirit for progress that has
been characterising Southern cities
for the past decade.
The Great Fire.
But with the great fire that nearly
diestroyed the city a few years ago
there came a change over 'our people.
They shook off their indifference, and
went about the job of biulding a town
with a seriousness and enthusiasm
that has produced magnificent results.
The City Itself.
Newberry has a population of over
five thousand inhabitants; and is
spread out so that the packed, crowd
ed feeling so characteristic of many
Southern towns is entirely lacking in
our city. To attempt to enune'rate
what Newberry has would be to fall
into a common habit that has been
worked over time by towns neavily
engaged in advertising themselves.
We have our full share of everything
a town the size of ours needs. for our
growth has all along been uniform
and coordinate. Education, religion,
business and social development have
.held their own grounds while being
friendly and helpful each to the other.
This is a condition seldom foun.d, and
of which Newberry is justly proud.
The Long Summers Behind'Us.
Out of the long span of summers
already behind some of us how many
of the mare, fresh and green in our
memories because of special and pe
culiar occasions? Does not 'the ner
vous system need a rest from the iron.
grip of the2 business life? And is there
.a better time to live and to love than
in the month' of June when the 'woods
are green and when the fields are
scented and colored with countless
hundreds of wild flowers native to
this clime.
Looking Forward.
Newberry is the -place and the time
is ripe for us to have a Chautauqua
week. It can and is going to be made
th!e best and happiest week in the
history of this beauti-ful and shady
town. The week's entertainnmeints are
the best that can be afforded. It takes
nearly two thousand dollars to put on
this Chautauqua, and talent is going
to be brought herie that our people
have never before and probably will
never again have the op.portunity to
hear; but the entertainments them
selves are not the only vhin-g's that
should appeal to us and our visitors.
Outdoor Exerises.
Not only has 'this city beautiful
streets specially suitable for driving
and horse-back riding and also for au
tomobiles, but many streets leaving
the city merge into fine country roads
that stre'tchi for miles along ideal
woodland scenery, and along as fine
farming land as can be found in the
Southland. Two Chautauqua numnbers
will be given each day, and the re
mainder of the day can be spent in a
hundred differ'e'nt ways that will pro
duce lasting memories, and to which
one can look backward with -pleasure
as the years come and go.
INewberry's Hospitality.
Commercial prosperity and genuine
hospitality do 'not usuially go hand-in
hand: and onre of the things of which
Newberry -is proud is that -fortune has
not robbed 'her of' that finer and
sweeter spirit of Southern hospitality,
and wherever this city is knowin it is
associated with the older school of
ethics. Our people still have time tc
visit. a'nd to linger eit the gate post it
saytrng good-byes. We are going ti
have a good time ourselves, and we
are going to see that visitors shall ea
and laugh and be hap.py while staying
with us.
