"A resolution endorsing the administration
of Gov. Manning was
tabled." This is from a report published
in the State of the first county
convention in the new county of McCormick.
Not only republics are ungrateful.
Gov. Mannig siged the act
creating the new county. Now, see
this. A good paragraph for the "Joke
Wonder why it is that there is just
now so much in the newspaper about
doing away with the county-to-county
campaigns. Let 'em speak and if the
people don't care to listen let 'em
stay away.
We made a trip to Chappells and
on to Dyson and Ninety Six last Wednesday.
We went by Dead Fall and
Silverstreet. The road from Newberry
to Dead Fall has been worked m-.l j
is in good shape except for the bumps j
aind from Dead Fan to snversu-eeL
that mile of road is in bad condition
and so is a short stretch from Silver**
street They say these two sections
are in the town of Silverstreet.
* The road all the way to Chappells
is too narrow and needs work. Especially
is this true of the section just j
beyond the residence of kr. K. T. Fel-j
" . r, 1
lers.. Supervisor Sample tells us he !
is going to work this road while he;
has the gang in that section. The;
?ang in charge of Will Miller is now
at work on the road from Chappells
tp the riyer bridge, and it needed- to
$>e worked. The road is being widened
to thirty feet an<J they are making
% fine road out of it. Mr. t. P.
Ricil&rdsoit, the bridge builder, is
putting up some nice bridges along
the road and when the roacl is finished
it will be a real pleasure to
drive over it. On the Greenwood
side the road has been worked down
to the river and a new road has been
opened from the Anderson road to
Godsey which will shorten the distance
from Chappells to Ninety Six
some two or three miles, and the
road is fine. In fact, on to Ninety
Six and Greenwood is a fine road and
in fine condition. Some work is need- J
ed on the river bridge and the ap- j
proach to the bridge. I
Supervisor Sample has scraped the
road from Newberry on down to Jolly
Street and as soon as it rains and the
loose dirt gets settled if the road is
glren an application of the split log
drag it will be fine. This force is in j
charge of Mr. Tom Teague and he ]
knows how to get over the road.
The trouble with all the public roads
is they are too narrow. We drove
down to St. Pauls on Sunday and we
went bv Mr. T. J. Wilson's and the
Gallman place. This road is from i
t I
three to four miles nearer than
around by Prosperity, but the road is!
narrow and cannot be made a first J
class road until it is widened. It isj
just a little more than 11 miles from;
Newberry by this- road to St. Pauls,
whereas by Prosperity and Jolly
Street it is about 15 miles. The road
from Mr. J. C. Neel's <jn down to the;
' " - - . _ J
Gailman place is in iairiy good con- ;
dition and the first mile of it out to
Mr. J. C. Wicker's is fine and has the
appearance of having had a regular
application of the split log drag. But
as a rule the roads are in fine condi
tion for the narrow pathways of this
county. The road to Kinards is good
and has had some good top dressing
in several places which has greatly
helped it a;nd it was done by the com:
munity cooperation. The only way to I
have good roads until we get more!
money is by community cooperation.
If the road from Newberry fo Prosperity
is just dragged now as soon
qc it rains it will be a sood road. Of
course there are a few sand ana some
<^ay places or beds which should be
made to make a small exchange and
on the clay. This road was a demon\
on the cly. This rod was a demonstrtion
sand clav road.

Alan Johnstone, Prof. S. J. Derrick,
Superintendent Geo. D. Brown,
and possibly others. During the i
evening, several songs and recitations
will be given by pupils of the school.
As this will be the closing of our
session, the .prizes for perfect attendance
and spelling, and scholarship
medals will be awarded.
We are endeavoring to make this
meeting of profit to every one. So the :
public is cordially invited to attend j

Mr. Henry B. Wells never spares
any pains or expense to give the pat-j
ro:is of the opera house the latest
and most up to date things that go
with the movies. And he is always
trying to give his patrons the best |
and the most elevating and the clean|
est pictures that are offered. When j
he first went into the business he
used the service known to the pro-!
fession as commercial which meant;
pictures that were from sixty to more j
days old. He then worked up to the j
use of what is .known as first run pic- j
tures but as they could not "be told j
from those that are a few days old j
he is not now trying to use first day
pictures but he is giving the best ser- i
vice that can be put on. There is no j
picture house.in the United States that I
has a better projection than Wells
uses at the opera house.
The latest in the movie woHd is!
wkat Wells has put in at the opera'
house in the shape of a Seeburg Pipe'
Organ Orchestra and he has done this j
at great expense but it is necessary j
if Newberry is to iave the'foest and
that is what Wells Is determined to [
give. There are only one or two other j
movie houses in the State that have|
a pipe organ and one of these is in[
Charleston. j
The music is as good as any music
j that can be had and if you are a
doubting one go down to the opera1
house some afteiyioon or evening and j
be convinced for yourself. Mr. Wells j
lias visited picture shows in the'
large cities and he is giving Newberry j
i just as good as any of the shows in 1

losing his dwelling by fire. The fam- i ]
ily was not at home and when the fire j
was discovered it had obtained such!
headway that the building and all the I
contents were destroyed. It was!
with difficulty that the residences ad-!(
joining were saved. It is not known j(
how the fire originated but it seems to;4
have started in the rear part of the i

kitchen. The fire was discovered {'
about 2 o'clock in the afternoon. It j(

The loss is a heavy one. p
The total loss was about $3,500 j
with insurance of $1,800.

A party of five, Mr. and Mrs. J. V. j
Clary and daughter, Ruth, Mr. and
Mrs. C. A. Matthews, were motored
by Mr. Clary in his Maxwell car
tnrough txie country to visit relatives
at different points. We left Xewber- J
ry Wednesday a. m., at 6:40 o'clock, j
Got to Columbia 8:40. One of the
party visited Dr. Mcintosh to get aj
prescription to enable us to continue |
the trip. Left Columbia 11 o'clock,
arrived at Eutawville, a distance of 85
miles from Columbia, at 3 o'clock.
Made one stop just before reaching St. |
Matthews to eat our lunch and pay j
5 cents for a bucket of water, simply j
because we did not care to walk j
across plowed ground to get it our-;
We kept the State road from Columbia
to St. Matthews. It was simply
grand, one could not realize they
were traveling at the rate of 35 to
40 miles an hour. We left the State
road a short distance below St. Matthews,
but found them very good
from there to Eutawville. We rested
a short time with relatives then motored
10 miles farther to an o'. 1 plantation
home to spend the night, arriving
there about 5. o'clock'. That
night the party we.:t fishing on the
pond in front of the house.
E?ery plantation home has its own
pond and boats. The boats are arranged
with gasoline lamps with,
powerful reflectors, which throw the
light to the bottom 15 to 20 feet deep,,
where there seems to be 2:0 limit to :
the fish. They use a fish-gig, which !
has a handle 15 to 20 t'eet long, resembling
a lioe handle with the gig
at the end. One kneels in the boat j
and throws the gig; aiming at the'
fish. One familiar with the use of!
the gig seldom fails to land his fish.
Those weighing less than 7 pounds}
are thrown away and considered j
worthless. The trout caught ^usually
weigh 16 to 18. pounds. Two of these j
fish make a huge platter full. It was
amazing the amount of fish our party
could get rid of so quickly. The fisfa.
baskets were full every a. m. iWte had
quantities of fish for every meal.
Thursday a. m. we left for Charleston
at 8:20 o'clock a distance of 60
miles by way of Pinopolis and Monck's j
Corner where one of the party had so j
many school mates livijg. After leaving
Monck's Corner for a number of
miles we found the roads terrible.
They were being worked with an entrir>??

of dirt and trash to run over expecting
every moment a puncture. Mr.
Clary was such an expert driver we
reached the State road in safety. We
were then 18 miles from Charleston.
We arrived there 12 o'clock, ready to
hunt a lunch-room.
After being refreshed, we called
upon relatives, viewed our dear old
Confederate college on Broad street,
then motored over the city in every
direction, we did not need a guide,
there. We found old St. Michael's
clock silent. We visited the battery
and wharfs, the latter place we found
two battleships and a huge relief
boat, but we were not allowed to go
over them. It was fun watching the
fishing boats come in laden with the
fish caught during the a. m. So manylarge
sharks, which were sold as soon |
as they were cut up. We wanted to
visit the Isle of Palms. 'The boat did
not leave the city until 3 o'clock and
returned at 5, too late for us to make
our return trip home. iWe started
the Magnolia gardens but "found when
we reached the cemetery it was 22 j
miles from there which would take j
us that far out of our way. So, we j
began our trip home another way
keeping the State road to Holly Hill, '
by way of Summerville, then on to

home a distance of 64 miles. '
Just before reaching Summerville
we had to wait a short time for the
road to be cleared. Two automobiles
collided; and were splintered. One
contained 7 people, two of them
ladies, one a Catholic priest, the
other car was driven by W. F. Wagner
of Wagner & Co. Charleston and
a friend. Fortunately no one was
hurt. Mr. Wagner walked the 4 miles
to Summerville and sent a car to
:onvey the angry ones to Charleston, j

"We spent Friday a. m. on the pond, \
some boat riding while others fished
cvith hooks. You cannot gig the fish j
luring the day. "We spent Friday,
night at Eutawville where a fishing
party was planned for us. They were

rhev brought back only 17 pounds
jnd a trout weighing about the same.
Saturday a. m., we left Eutawville in j
a rain about 7:40 o'clock reaching
Columbia 11:30. One of the party
visiting the dentist. She gave him
every tooth she had.
Left Columbia 1:30. Just after j
crossing the river, we bad to stop to j
put up the curtains?a rain was com- |
ing, no sooner done than it was upon
us. We passed through 5 showers
on the way, found water standing
every where just below the Little'
Mountain and from there to Newberry j
it was fearfully dusty.
iWIe found very little difference in
the crops along the way. Between
Columbia and St. Matthews, some
were hoeing cotton while others were
pia..ting. Around Tntawville no cotton
is planted, they are waiting for
a rain. Grain is very poor, only saw 2
fields of fine oats, one field of very

We made the trip of 420 miles cn
18 gallons of gasoline. Not a single
accident, no stop to attend to the machine
at any time only to have it refilled
with gasoline a few times. Mr.
Clary is such a skillful driver. Altogether
the trip was an ideal one
and one to be remembered.
