Why not get Jimmie Ward to come
down from Greenville and fly some in
Newberry?* A lot of us here have
never seen an airship.
We understand that Senator Smith
is advising the farmers not to use fer
tilizer next year. We can not see the
advantage in taking such advice. Bet
ter use fertili7er and cut down the
acreage, and make the same amount
on one-half the land. Then use the
other half for pasture or grain crops.
-But it is not likely we will have as
'big crop another year as we had this
Mr. Cecil Wyche, a son of Dr. C. T.
Wyche, of Prosperity, has announced
that he will be a candidate for the
State senate in Spartanburg county.
He has lived there for sevyeral years
and is practicing law. The Spartan
burg Herald thinks he is too young to
go Into politics. It says he was sus
pected of having political ambitions
because he came from Newberry. Well,
it is no sin to be young, is it? And
it is no crime to have political ambi
tions that we ever heard of, though
it may be for a Newberry man.
We do not see :much advantage to
the Southern cotton grower in the fifty
million dollar proposition to hold two
million bales of cotton. Just how this
plan is to advance the price of cotton
we do not see. It may be that we do
not understand the scheme. It seems
that the cotton is to be sold to the
cotton buyer and the seller is to re
ceive $25 on each bale and a certificate
for three-fourths of the advance in
ease the price advances and to pay
one dollar a bale for storage and in
surance. But if the price declines the
' farmer loses all. We are told that
fuiller details will be given later.
The State board of health stands
pat on its first proposition that the
*hosiery mill at the penitentiary is a
breeding place for tuberculosis and
should be abolshed, and the board
claims to have made a thorough in
vestigation of the situation, and it
should be remembered, too, that the
State board of health is not in poli
tics, and there can be no political sig
niificance to the position taken, but it
is a plain and simple statement of
facts as the board sees the situation.
It is now up to the legislature to say
whether it will permit the continuance
of a situation that is a breeding place
A good many out-of-town and out
of-State newspapcrs vcarried "stories'
to the effect that Governor Blease w'is
sworn as a witness before the grand'
jury here on the Felder indictment.
How this report got into the news
papers is not known. It was not tent
out by any of the Newberry 'corre
spondents of the daily papers. It was
state'd in the reports sent out from
here that Governor Blease was in the
court room at the time the indictment
was handed out. That was all there
was to it. As matter of fact, Governor
Blease was nrt a witness before the
grand jury in the Felder case, and did
not go before d1e grand jury.
Judge Gage's special chrg to the
Newberry grand jury is so different
front his reputed remarks in his gen
eral charge that we yet feel constrain
ed to believe that he must have been
If you have reference to his telling
the grand jury they must be satisfied
of the guilt of the party charged be
yond a reasonable doubt before they
found a true bill, there is no mistake
and no misunderstanding. We heard'
the charge. In justice to Judge Gage
it should be said that he has taken
the same poi tion before other grandI
juries ~r the circuit, and it did not
have recal reference to the Felder
car be did make the state
them on this particular case. In fact,
the whole charge in the case seemed
to lean towards the finding of a "no
It would have been undoubtedly bet
ter if the Newberry grand jury had
returned a true bill against Felder and
allowed the case to go to trial. Ther-e
are those, of course, that will rejoice
that Felder "has won," but we do not
think this is true. We think that the
administration of the law in New
berry has lost, temporarily at least.
The probability is that the next grand
jury, to be drawn in the spring will
return a true bill, as it has a right to
do if it sees proper.-Yorkville En
We are inclined to think the York
ville Enquirer is right. We have ab
solutely no interest in the case and
if it had been left to us we would not
have brought the indictment, and in
fact we would have closed up the
whole dispensary business years ago
and been rid of the whole thing.
There is so much prejudice and poli
tics in the whole business that there
is little chance of a fair and impartial
trial on any side. The finding of a
"no bill" Is no vindication.
Some time ago The Herald and News
wrote to President Finley of the
Southern railway, to ask if we could
not secure his cooperation in the mat
ter of relocating the public road be
tween Newberry and Prosperity so as
to avoid some of those dangerous
grade crossings, and he replied that
he would refer the matter to Mr. Coap
man and ask him to take it up with
the county officials. The supervisor
was apprised of what President Fin
ley said in the matter. And the sup
ervisor seemed interested.
Under date of November 25 we re
ceived a letter from Mr. Finley In
which he says: "In further respons?
to your letter of September 25, in re
spect to the highway between Pros
perity and Newberry,' I am informed
that Superintendent Williams has had
a conference with the county super
visor of Newberry county, Mr. L. I.
Feagle, on this subject, the results of
which I have no doubt are satisfactory
to Mr. Feagle." We do not know the
results of the conference, but we know
that the supervisor is going right on
building the road without getting rid
of any of the grade crossings. And we
know further that it would have been
economy and good judgment to have
paid more than the land is woi'th to
~have gotten ride of at least some of the
more dangerous grade crossings.
There ought to be a State law to re
quire all. of them taken out. Where
they could be easily taken out without
injury to the road or the property, and
with positive benefit to both, it is little
less than criminal to leave them or
to build a good road without taking
them out. This could have been done
between Newberry and Prosperity.

*KEEPING SWEET POTATOES. *
* * * * ** * * ** * * * * ** * *
During the past three years experi
ments looking to the best method of
keeping sweet potatoes have been
carried on at the experiment station
here. A careful study has been made
of the rots of potatoes, and the con
ditions u*nder which these rots thrive.
We find that the majority of the trou
ble in keeping sweet potatoes comes
from the presence of disease on the
potatoes when they are brought into
the bank from the field. The black
rot, and the stem rot, both of which
are very common throughout the State,
are primarily field diseases. They at
tack the underground portions of the
plant while in the fiets and cause black
and scabby looking areas on the sur
face of the tubers. When these pota
toes are dug and stored in banks or
houses these diseases spread through
the entire lot a.nd cause the potatoes
to rot. The most important thing,
then, in connection with storing pota
toes is to see that you have absolutely
healthy potatoes to begin with. Where
the crop is planted from vines the po
tatoes are usually found to be very
free from the disease. For this rea
son it is well to bank .the potatoes
grown from vinies separately from
those grown from slips. This is es
pecially advisable where you are not
sure that the potatoes grown from
slips are free froi 's"o o
potatoes which ,*" . dr
in the ordinary way. Care should b
exercised to kefp tb, potatoes fro.
becoming chilled at an- ti-ne; the ten
perature in a bank shculd not be a'
lowed to go below >0 degrees at an
time during the winter. We fin. th'
where potatoes are once thorough]
chilled, it is almost impossible to kee
the:m. The storage rots, such as tb
soft and the dry rot both of which fr(
quently occur in stored potatoes, mah
rapid headway on potatoes when the
are once chilled. Any temperature bN
low 50 degrees wi-l chill the potatoE
sufficiently to enable these rots t
get a start.
Potatoes should never be banke
for two years in succession in the sam
bank. The fungi which cause the d1i
eases in the field and the ones whic
cause the rots in storage, will liv
over in these old banks and will al
tack the new potatoes as soon as the
are stored. The same soil and tb
same straw should not be used fc
two years in succession for coverin
the banks for this same reason. Wher
potato houses are used they should b
thoroughly cleaned out and the wall
and floors sponged or sprayed with
3 per cent. solution of formaline or
1 per cent. solution or blue stone b<
fore the potatoes are brought Ji
Where these precautions have be(
followed we have experienced ver
little difficulty in keeping sweet potE
