S. C., as 2nd ciass matter.
Tuesday. i.M'arcn <, iyib.
If any one who read what we said
about the water trickling through our
meter in February, had any dea, or
got any impression, thai it was intended
as a criticism of any one. we
tn icno 1 that HPV?rv Ir ?>

was on us. We knew there was need
of fixing the plumbing in the office because
there had been a leak and we
though; the leak had been stopped,
and then when the bill came to find
that the leak evidently had not been
stopped, because without a leak some
wnere tnere could nave been no sucn
amount of water used. No criticis n
of ;he superintendent or any one connected
with his department was intended.
We don't mind saying here, what
we have *aid elsewhere, thai it is our
opinion if there is one conscientious
and painstaking and accommodating
and efficient public official, who is all
the time on the job, that Homer
Sehumpert is that one. We have ob
scrvea mm very cioseiy since ne nas |
been in charge of the works, and ir?
have always found him attending :o
the business c! the job, and not bothering
with other people, and always
ready and willing to do what he could
for you, and at all times courteous
and obliging. No more could be exnp<>tArt
rvf anv rnp
While we are on this subject it
might be of interest to others to have
a few facts 'Stjout water meters, and
about how large a pond of water a
little lpflk will makf1. Ther^ is no
parallel, unless it be how interest
grows while you sleep.
In a circular of standards issued by
the department d' commerce at (Washington,
it says, of the accuracy of wa
ter meters:
"Water meters are commercially
accurate instruments. Cases of meters
which register correctly when installed
and overregister after being in service
are very rare. Any derangement
of the meter from dirt entering the
working parts or from other causes Is
lilr-olir tA clnir tho motAr ^rvTTTt anil
cause it to underregister. There is a
.small amount d1 unavoidable leakage
through the meter which causes It to
underregister when very small quantities
of water are passing.
"Meters for measuring water for do
.ill1 sue use ctre usuany grauuaicu m
cubic feet?sometimes in gallons. One
cubic foot is taken commercially as
equal to 7 1-2 gallons. Hence, to re
duce trie meter reading m cuoic reei
to gallons, multiply the number of
crbic l.eet by 7 1-2."
It might also be interesting to quote
from another authority, which is standard,
what a big thing a little leak can
make. And show what a little lea*
running steadily can do for you:
"It's only a little leak and doesn't
amount to anything.*' is the way that
steady drip or the fine stream from a
faucet is usually regarded. But the
little leak is on the job twenty-four

and while it may not appear to be
wasting much water, it is actually letting
a great deal run away. A round
orifipp one thirtv-second inch in diam
eter will pass 270 gallons of water in
24 hours at a pressure of 30 pounds
to the sQuare inch. Increase the pressure
by 10 pounds and the amount is
320 gallons, at 50 pounds pressure it is
380 gallons and at 60 pounds, 420 gallons.
Some cf.1 our most progressive
towns that have every outlet metered
show a daily per capita consumption
of only 70 gallons, so that at 60 pounds
pressure, which is now quite common,
that fine stream is wasting the equivat
i P _ J _ _ 1 ? ]
it in 01 a, uav 5 supply ior six persons.
"A stream of water one thirty-second
inch in diameter isn't any bigger
than a good size darning needle. Increase
it to one-sixteenth inch about
the size of one of those crochet hooks
trat grandma uses, and the amount
't will get away with in 24 hours Is
amazing. Starting at 350 gallons for f
30 pounds pressure, it. reaches 1,230 (
gallons at 60 pounds. Enough to sup- ;
p'y almost IS people i.'or washing, i
drinking and bathing for a day and ;
:iig)n. These are only the fine leaks J
that look like negligible quantities as j

'These figu fc are authentic as they
are based on the performance of the
Trident Jet Meter designed for filling
sewer tank flush services. However,
they di not accurately represent what J
a Je:.k iz doing in every instance as |
j the orifices in question are perrectly
smooth, round holes and the delivery
through an orifice depends upon its
character, which means its shape anu
the smoothness of its walls, quite as
much as upon its size."'
*** v* ?l- I
1 ne pressure in .\ewuer > is ou
pounds, we understand, and I-rom the
figures given above, which arc authentie,
you can readily see what a little
leak will do for you.
It is fortunate that we have an almost
inexhaustible supply of water in
Xewbcr: y, bccausc wc believe that
there is more wasted by these little
leaks tlian is used. Of course, it costs
something, but without a great supply
there would be a wacer famine caused
by these little leaks. Look at your
pipes and see if there is not a little
leak somewhere. And how to make it
stay fixed is the puzzling question.
In quoting what the York News had
to say about Mr. Bradford and two dfices
we had no intention of criticizing
Mr. Bradford <5r the State printer, hut
simDlv to chide our vounar friend of
the News for getting after .Mr. Bradlord,
who had only been mentioned as
a possible candidate for the legislature,
while he was secretary To the
printing committee, all a remote possibility,
while he says nothing about
a whole lot of others much higher up,
who are doing the very thing that he
suggests Mr. Bradford might possibly
do, and which we see now that Mr.
Bradford has no intention of doing.
And yet the News claimed that it had ,
never heard of such a thing as any one
holing two offices in South Carolina,
when the papers for the past two
months have been jfull of it. It would
seem that some have construed what
we said as in some way a criticism of
the State printer and of Bradford.
Not at all. We want to dispel that
WTa Mr- T>?r, ,3

several years, and so far as our knowledge
goes, we endorse most heartily
his selection for the position, and we
think the committee has done well to
get him. We were mistaken in 6aylng
he is now in the employ 0(1 the State
printer. He was until recently. Even
if he were now we do not believe that
would influence him to do anything
wrong in tbe discharge of his duties,
or would the State printer expect him
to snow any ravors. in iact we nappen
to know that during the time he was
employed by the State printer he very j
frequently did not agree with those
who employed him. and that it never
made any difference to either in a business
way. We believe that Mr. Bradford
is thoroughly competent to seme
the printing committee, and that he is
thoroughly honest and will do his duty
to the State, and at the same time be
fair to the Drinters whn mav rin thp
State work.
As to the State printing we think
the trouble has been with the system,
and there is opportunity to save
money to the State. It seems to us
that some years ago an act was passed
requiring certain State officials to edit
the copy b^Tore it was turned over to
the State printer to see that a whole
lot of stuff was not included in the report?
that had no business there. But
so far as we know there has been very
ntnc aavm5 aiuii.5 lllcll iiiic, uiuugu
there was great opportunity to save
in that direction.
Take for instance, the book of pardons
issued by the governor for the
year 1915. Gov. Manning wag. kind
enough to send us a copy. In looking
over if we judge he has paroled and
pardoned seine -J.". and lie takes lf>-J
printed pa^os to tell a bo in it. Fifty
pages would have been a plenty for
this, and given ample room to gi e his

Will Gogaans case I rom Newberry,
which case he commuted to lil'e imp:isonment.
He prints in detail all
the correspondence, even to the letters
of the attorney simply transmitting J he
petition ol' a juror, and then concludes
by saying that the commutation is
granted on the recommendation of the
board of pardons. That being the fact
the printing ci (he recommendation of
the board would have been sufficient,
with his conclusion, in all taking not
over a page. This book is printed at
ieast. twice and is paid for both time.and
the saving of a hundred pages or
more would have been an item.
Bradford and t;nj printing committee
will find plenty of wo:k to no
where a good saving can be nuid;> If
the act gives them power to s:tvc
where it should he sa.eu.
\\Y do net of'.'.'ii rUer 10 errors thut
occur in the paper, because ihey arc
almost unavoidable, and in most cases
the reader can understand what was
meanr. In the little local about 'he
mi mil) or nf Mr Rll 7.h;} rrl'c meat hoiliie
very ugly error occurred by the
young man who corectcd the proof
getting the wrong line in the wrong
place. It reads, in describing the ar
tides destroyed, that Mr. Buzhardt
among other things, lost "15 gallons
of Lebanon church," and so on. Of
course there were no "gallons'' in Lebanon
church. It was intended to say
something aboui 15 gallons of lard and
several tens of fertilizer. We try nery
hard to avoid such errors hut they will
creep in.
As soon as we can find time to correct
our mailing list we will take off
those who dod not take advantage of
the great opportunity to get into the
1916 class. We regret that there are
those who did not take advantage of
this opportunity at the low price of
one dollar. The sale closed on Saturday.
The price is the old one of
$1.50 a year, which is too cheap, with
everything in the paper line going up.
We can not send the paper unless you
pay for it. We do not know how the
matter stands. Our mailing galleys are
pretty "dirty" proof, and we are always
glad when they are, and we take
pleasure in correcting these proofs,
because they indicate there has been
something doing. We hate to part
with our old friends, but if they do
not appreciate our friendship maybe
it is best. We will welcome them
back to the household at any time they
may want to come. A great many new
members have been added, and the
household will still be good and strong
and we hope able to support the family,
if not in luxury, at least with the
necessaries and some of the comforts
of life. We appreciate the friendship
of those who have stood with us and
shall ever endeavor to deserve it.
Don't forget the use o^ the split log
drag. We had almost forgotten to
mention it, and to urge you not to forget
to use it.
The city council of Greenwood has
voted an annual appropriation of $1200
for a Carnegie library. And they
are now going after Mr. Carnegie to
get "him to build a monument to himself
in Greenwood, and it will be a
good thing for the town. Newberry
has the best opportunity to have a fine
library of any town we know. There
is no better building for such a purpose
than the old court house. It is
large enough to combine a good
nuray, rest room, ior men ana women,
and a good assembly hall. iMaybe
i:. the matter were presented to Mr.
Carnegie he might furnish sufficient
money to make the necessary changes
and improvements on condition that
the town agree to maintain it. It
would pay the town and county to
unite on this proposition. The Herald
and News discussed and advocated such
a. proposition some years ago, even before
the establishment of the present
rest room.

should prepare to make all that they

ing .or a generation, but maybe coming
from Mr. Kinard, who is deeply Interested
in the welfare of his countrymen,
it will be heeded. At any time
and under any circumstances tne
farmer of Newberry who does not fi'.st
make arrangement to grow on the
farm what he needs on the farm is a
failure as a farmer. No farmer in this
county can succeed and make money
who keeps his meat house and his corn
crib in the West, and undertakes to
buy these necessaries from the merchant,
and to pay for them with the
cotton he grows, it matters very little
what the price o-f cotton may be.
But at this time, when all the world
is stirred and torn, and no one knows
