How about organizing that split log
t'rag association? Now is a good time
io get busy.
Troops had to guard the home of
Cov. Slaton of Georgia on Monday and
uesday following his commutation of
tne deatJ'i penalty of L-eo *TanK. Ana
it is said that he will still be in danger
of assassination for his act. It
took some courage on his part to do
*.vfoat he did and we must believe that
t e was actuated by what he conceived
to be his duty. The people should
13-member that the responsibility rested
witJa Gov. Slaton and it is difficult
lor the outsider to put himself in the
> :ace of Gov. Slaton. So far as we
i ee it from tf:e reading of the evidence
in the case that was published we bei.'eve
that the governor has done the
ilgkt tlMng. It is to be hoped that
<)ulet will be restored and that no
violence will be attempted the governor.
WHAT DOES IT MEA> ?
. T!he Herald and News has received
the following letter wiiidh we gladly
i-rint and would like to ask what it
.means or rather what the resolution
Seneca, S. C., June 21, 1915.
The Herald and News, Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir: At the last annual meet"ng
of the South Carolina Medical association
the following resolution was
" Believing it is the duty of the newspaper
to protect honest advertising
and protect readers from fraudulent
and deceptive advertising, tfte Medical
i. ssociation of Soutih Carolina resolved
that it would request every newspaper
"n the State of South Carolina to accept
no medical advertising which is
: ntagonistic to the public welfare, or
which is undeniably fraudulent or
The South Carolina Medical association
would greatly appreciate any
tuck aciion on your part.
. x ' E. A. Hines,
Secretary of the S. C. Medical Association.
iWe know'that the newspapers of
South Carolina are honest and try to
do the right thing. We do not believe
that any newspaper in South Carolina
would accept knowingly any
"'fraudulent and deceptive advertising,"
whetiber it be Jiedical or otfter
wise. How is the newspaper to know
that the "medical advertising is antagonistic
to the public welfare," or
lhat it "is "undeniably fraudulent or
If this refers to patent medicine advertising
our opinion is that practically
all of the patent medicine is nothing
but dope of some kind. Good

' advertising describes the case so well,
?.nd then there are good people wfoo
five recommendations of tfte wonderful
things this medicine has done for
ihem. We believe it was the dope all
ihe time that made the patient feel
better. But why not stop the druggists
from handling and selling? Why
TTiY? your stakes at th& little newsapers?
Wfto is to be the censor and
determine whicih is "fraudulent and
:-eceptive" and which is "antagonistic
io the public welfare?"
Mayb-e the use .of the patent medicin
^3 due to the ability of the vendors to
- dvertise. But the Medical association
hould specify what it means by
' medical advertising which is antagonistic^
to tfce public welfare" and wlhat
;.y "undeniably fraudulent and decep'ye."
Otherwise the insinuation is
;aat the newspapers are knowingly
accepting such advertising to the hurt
i f the people.
We are pleased to tear that' the C.
\ and L. is taking out some of tf:e
? rade crossings between Prosperity
- nd Little Mountain. Two were taken
. at some years ago and now the dangerous
one just beyond Mr. John A.
Snealy's, Sr., is being taken out and
'ihe road will not cross until in front
of Tabor church. Better still if the
?oad would continue on that side of
railroad and then with the two
> ^ \r
grade crossings which are being taken
out in front of the residence of Mr.
Ben Kempson tfcere would be no
crossing of t)~e railroad until you
reached the Singley place and that
would be the only one between Little
Mountain and Prosperity. And then
if some one would get interested between
Newberry and Prosperity we
are satisfied that most of the grade
crossings between these two towns
could be removed. They should be.
<8> THE lHLEK. <?>
I am absolutely certain now that I
am a dreamer, and I am so proud of
it, and especially when you can live
long enough to see some of your
dreams realized. A dreamer is one
of those fellows who is always ahead
of the times in which he lives, but
some of the great dreamers of the
world have lived to see the realization
of tl.'.eir dreams, and 1 believe
I am going to be in that class. Now,
I hear some one say, well, that fellow
sure !bas his nerve with him and
doesn't mind talking about himself.
Well, so be it. iWhat I am trying to
lead up to is that for many years?
in fact from the beginning of this
column?my constant song has been
building a park for Newberry. The
park is coming. The land has been
secured and work lias commenced. Of
course, the land has not been purchased,
but just so sure as the park
is opened for one year it will never

Observer and tells about tfoat sign that
stood across the street in front of the
office being taken down and then goes
on to say: "And now, having set the
example, the Observer is going to inaugurate
a crusade against overhead
signs across the sidewalk?one of tfre
signs of an antiquated town. It is a
wonder the Civic association hasn't
been after these signs before now."
Well, bless your dear lire, 'rne iaier
called attention to these overhead
signs many years ago and said about
the same t'Mng as to their being the
sign of an antiquated town. That was
one of our dreams and if it too should
come to pass we will be glad. We are
glad that the Observer is going to
wage a crusade against them. .1 am
sorry I did not get my articles and
put ti:em in such form that they could
be used for ready reference, because
1 could quote from them and demonstrate
that I had a dream like this of
which I am now writing. There is
one tmng anout tne ?rcamer, xie is always
in a good humor and never is
jc-alous or envious. These things are
foreign to his nature and so what he
dreams comes to pass lie doesn't cary
wbo takes the credit for it. Yes, let
the overhead signs go and the quicker
Some things that I have been reading
in the newspapers recently have
called to mind a little poem which I
xhirjk I have heretofore prin+ed in flnjs
ciumn, bir. it is so beautiful and so
true and canies sucli a beautiful
! mcraj, and I- think is so appropriate
at tnis tima. in view of many things
that are taking place and that are being
said that I want to quote it again.
All of us at times are too harsh in
our judgments. We don't understand
all the motives that actuate our fellows
and sad, but too true, I am almost
persuaded that we don't sometimes
care. If we only understood. If
we could only try to understand. But
here is tfte poem. Read it and cut it
out and when you are tempted to
judge harshly some act of your fellowman
take it out and read it. It will
do you good.
If We Only Understood.
Could we but draw the curtain
That surrounds each other's lives,
See the naked heart and spirit,
Know what spur the action gives,
Often we should find it clearer,
Purer than we judge we should?
j We would love each otfter better,
! Tf wp rmlv understood.
Could we judge all deeds by- motives,
See the good and bad within,
Often we would love the sinner,
All the while we loatibed the sin.
Could we know the powers working
To o'erthrow integrity,
We would judge each other's errors
With more patient charity.
I If we knew the cares and trials
Knew the effort all in vain,
All tfce bitter disappointment.
Understood the loss and pain.
Would the grim external roughness
Seem, I wonder, just the same?
Would we help wftere now we hinder?
Would we pity where we blame?
Ah, we judge each other harshly,
Knowing not life's hidden force;
Knowing not the fount of'action
Is less turbulent at its source;
Seeing not amid the evil
All tfte golden grains of good?

! ?Selected, j
| I notice by the papers that Gov.
j Slaton of Georgia 'had to call out the j
! militia to protect his country home j
against the mob who had undertaken ;
! to enter. It seems that he had a lot!
! .... . . i
i of barbed wire lence put around tne |
: premises to make the entrance more |
* dangerous. All because he had com-!
' muted the sentence of Leo Frank. I'
don't know anything about the Frank |
case except what I read in tr.ie news|
papers but somehow I feel that Gov. 1
Slaton did the right thing in comj
muting the sentence. And I admire
: the backbone of the man for doing
;it in the face of ti_e mob. If Frank
, is guilty he should die. If he is not
j guilty he should be free. But with the j
I excitement that still exists it would'
[ be scarcely possible for him to have .
j had a fair trial. If there is doubt as \
l to his guilt he should have the bene- j
j fit of that doubt. That is what our j
I criminal laws say. Maybe after the j
excitement passes trne truth will come j
out. But I am not referring to this j
matter to discuss the suilt or the in- !
- - W . J
nocence of Frank, but to ask if our j
; civilization is a failure. .What does j .
j it all mean. If we* understood the !
motives that actuated the governor j
j we migLt understand. But just think j
i of a mob going to the home of the j
I chief executive of a great State and j
threatening violence because he exer-;
cised his constitutional rigftt in grant- ,
ing a commutation to one convicted of!
I crime. Then talk about our boasted j
I civilization. I have no doubt there'
j will be those who will be ready to I
I say that the governor made money ||
i out of his commutation in tiMs case,
I Now, I don't know Gov. Slaton but
i I do not believe anything of the kind.
I If we could judge all deeds by moj
tives it would be so much better. ^
I Sometimes the motive is evil but I bei
j lieve that it is many more time pure j ^
! and sincere. But, well, I believe that]
. there are so many laws and so many ^
, that are violated because they are c
j foolish laws, that there is growing up ?
j in this country general disregard for t
; law. Even in our courts and during c
j my own brief recollection somehow
11 do not believe that tfcere is that:
} general regard for law and consti-1
j tuted authority that once prevailed in r
j this country. The tendency seems to
[be toward the mob, if the jury and tlb-e
court do not agree to the popular
clamor. And yet, I must believe the
people as a whole are growing better.
At any rate we may all hope so, and ;
i if each one will contribute his or her
! part there will be no question tf:at
I the world will grow better very rap- c
: idly. * i
