"We notice from the Press and Banner
that some one in Abbeville thinkf
there has been enough rain. Well
The new paper, the Charleston
American, we understand made its
initial appearance on Sunday ,in a
very large edition. We have only
seen one copy, that of Wednesday. Wa
suppose it will exchange with the
country weeklies but up to this time
it has not done so with The Herald
and News.
The copy of the Charleston American
that we saw says that at the Sumter
campaign meeting former Governor
Blease had a large proportion of
the crowd. The Sitate and the News
and Courier say that Gov. Manning
"was given an ovation. How is the
poor country editor or the reader to
know what to believe. It is a pity
. i
that the reporter does not report a
meeting just as it is. Well, we are
all Ihuman and we suppose every one
"writes of a meeting as he sees it. We
must believe that any way.
Every one and all the children will
go to the college reunion at Little
Mountain on Friday (today). The C.
Jtf. and L. is running a special train
\ besides its regular passenger for the
Cooper said at Sumter in answer to
(Manning's question. "I am running
because I have the right to run."
That's right. Let the people say what
they want. Manning is fighting now

that Blease will be in that race and
he wants to get ahead of Cooper or
hea-d him off in some way.
We take pleasure in directing the
readers of The Herald and News to
an article in this paper signe^ "Citizen."
It is forth while to take note
of wha~ thi** wiiter has to say and
to act UDon it. He sneaks of some
Yery important and pressing needs of
the town of Newberry and none of

j them but what could be supplied by
the proper sort of cooperation on the
part of our .people/ It takes cooperation
and a little self help to get the
things re mentions. They are worth
while if we expect to be the city that
we ave a rikt to be and that we ought
to be. Think on them and then some

We should apply rigid tests to candidates.

the candidates are seeking to serve

There was an unsually large crow'i
at tlie campaign meeting at Pomaria
on Tuesday. A good barbecue dinner
] was served by that prince of good
! fe-Iows, Walter Richardscn. He gave
! the old soldiers a half price 107 their
j dinner una made a contribution from
! the proceeds of the dinner of $25.00
I to the Pomaria gilded school. That
j did not leave ihim very much for his
I services but lie helped some good
causes and did good for the community
which after all is worth more to
him than to have made -a few extra
dollars for himself.
The meeting was held in the park
just this side f the town and there
' is plenty ox shade, hut not much chance
for the hreezes to circulate, and 'besides
being one of the hottest days oi
the season it was made warmer on

j humor and gave fine attention to all
the speakers but there was very little
i demonstration i^nd the people only
I quietly listened.
They have about made up their
! minds as to how they will vote and
i we believe they are going to vote tnis
I year for wliat they -conceive to be the

' best interest of the publio service and
| that they are not going to be carried

; The candidates all make about the
I same speeches, though some of them
i may continue them from place to
1 place not having time enough to get
! through at any one meeting.
I The campaign so far has he en free
! from bitterness of speech and only
! the records of the public officials have
I been brought into the limelisrM with
. no effort to be personal in the lesat

.vonderful relief by just a fe*.v doses
of Tanlac,'' declared Mr. W. 0. Kins,
a farmer living between Anderson and
Pendleton. His address is Pendleton.
K. P. D.
Mr. Kin? came into Evans' Pharmacy,
at Anderson lo buy a bottle of
Tanlac, and while there told the T.:nIss
representative of the great
value of this wonderful remedy had
bee- to his family. "I wish 1 had the
money to buy a dozen bottles this
afternoon." he declared, "for I need to
take Tanlac myself, but this is the
tight money time for the farmer and
I will .have to buy Tanlac now only
for those who need it worst.''
Continuing, Mr. King said: 'i>ly j
wife suffered peculiar troubles and a i
very bad case of indigestion. She
had been in ill health a long time be j
lore she began taking Tanlac, and I;
once paid out $75 for medical services
for her, 12nd she did not get as much
benefit then as she did from lier first
bottle of Tanlac, which cost just
one dollar.

increased a great deal and her appe- j
tite is better than it has been in years, i
Nothing she eats~^uses her indigestion
now. She sure is ple.-sed with
the results. It is just -wonderful the
way she has improved.
"My boy, Charlie, suffered one whole j
year with a very peculiar and distres- '
sing trouble, which about a dozen
doses of Tanlac broke up. All last
summer he could not work even half a
day. He would get so weak he would
have to stop for the day. This summer
he was not any better. 'Charlie's
appetite would be good until he got
t# the table, but then he would become
sick. Often at night his breath, would
almost leave him. He lost a lot of
weight and strength. I .had taken
'him to a dozen doctors, but he got no
better. It was said he had nervous
