in this town. We have not space

who owed the paper could not take
advantage of the dollar sale \vc had
on in August. We knew it was a
bad time and those who really needed
to take advantage of that die' not
feel that they could even put out the
dollar at that time. The fall is now
here, and while we are not going to
put on the dollar sale, we will at
least give every one an opportunity
to get a very useful article in connection
with a subscription to The
Herald and News.
We have arranged with MayeS
Book store so that we will give vjith'
every payment of two dollars, or orr*;
year's subscription, either an aluminum
water pitcher or an aluminum:
thermos bottle, or we will give you
two small aluminum molasses pitchers,
so that you may serve two kinds
of molasses at the same time, or you
ean use one for milk.
These articles may be seen at
Mayes Book store right now. and the
sale will last for only two weeks, or
rather will close on Saturday* November
4. We have not been able to
get our mailing list corrected up to
date, but we hope to be straightened
out in our new home very soon. And
then we will keep it corrected to
All you have to ao is to come tu
the office and pay two dollars for one
year's subscription and you will ;ret
an order to Mayes Book store and
walk across the street and take your
choice of the articles here mentioned.
We have already mentioned she mrfv
We have already arranged with Mr.
Mayes. He now has some of the articles
on hand and will supply whatever
number we may order. All three
are useful articles. And every
housewife would appreciate one or
the other. The thermos bottle should
appeal especially to school children.
Only one subscription, on this plan
taken from each subscriber, and aponr?

regardless of the date to which you
Have paid.
Come right along now and take
advantage of this, great removal snle,
and we are going to be in position
now to publish .the best newspaper
we have ever printed,, and that is jcoing
some. ,
This is a rare opprtunity to place
in every home in Newberry county a
useful and beautiful piece of aluminum.
Don't wait but come right
now. The offer is open to every one
anywhere, and besides get a real
newspaper for a whole year.
We are receiving complaints from
subscribers that the paper has been
late in coming. We realize that this
is only too true, but it is a big job to
move a printing office,' and until we
get moved and straightened out delays
are#going to be avoidable, and
we beg our friends to bear with us
as best they. can. We appreciate the
fact that you miss the <#d paper an|
we trust the time will not be long un4

On Wednesday of last week I was
at Wheeland at the morning exercise.
The school opened on Monday, but
the patrcns a:;d teachers wanted to
have some friends at the school during
the early part of the session, so
it was decided to have what they call
the formal opening on Wednesday.
Mrs. Annette Brooks and Miss Elizabeth
Metts are the t^achi-r.- for this
session. Mrs. Brook? has had experience
and this b the first session for
Miss Metts. They start off all right
and we are expecting some goou
work at this school. There were
mere than fifty children present on
Wednesday and the enrolment will
go beyond sixty. Rev. J. J. Lons: and
Rev. J. L. Cromer were present and
made very excellent and helpful
talks. The people are interested and
these words of encouragement are a I*
ways helpful. I also talked to the
people. They have a nice and com
fortable school house at tnis piace
and beautiful grounds, but there is
need of some work on the roads and
especially the one leading: from Little
Mountain, and then from the school
house out to the highway by Faiiview
school. There is so much lumber
hauling now that it keeps the
j-oad in bad condition, and that ap
!plies to many of the highways.
! !
| I drove from Wheeland across to
: Fairvicw out by the Wheeler place,
and this is a road I do not recall to
.have traveled before, if so a lone:
jtime ago, and there are some good
1 farms along this way and a good deal
;of timber yet in spite of the great
amount that is being cut down and
hauled away. Everywhere you go
there are lumber wagons and trucks

that the forests would soon be de-,
pleted. I visited the school at Fairview,
but getting there just before
the dinner hour, did not have much
opportunity to observe the work. Mr.
Lawrence Derrick is the principal
and Miss Hattie Belle Lester the assistant.
This is the first year for
Mr. Derrick at this school, though he
has had several years experience, and
is a graduate of Newberry collegeMiss
Lester taught very successfully
at this school last year and ir; very
popular with parents and children
and is doing a fine work in the school
and community. I had a conference
with the trustees and the negroes
who are preparing to build a house
%ad to consolidate the negro schools
[^%Lrview an(* ^^ee'anc^an(*

;anc? ^H^eland have been consolidated
past several years and now

f has been bought and paid
and the lumber for the framing
weatherboarding is on the
ground and we expect to let the contract
to put up the building within a
few days and have the house finished
before very long, in fact to hold
school in it this session. I had a good
dinner with Mr. and Mrs. M. A.
Hamm who live right at the school
house, and then came on to Prosperity
to meet an engagement which I
had at 1:30 o'clock. I intended to
stop at Mt. Pilgrim as I came by but
owing to the Prosperity engagement
could not do both, keep the engagement
and make the stop.
The highway which has just been
completed by the contractor was in
terrible condition at that time, so
rough that you could scarcely drive j
over it and remain in the car. And!
dusty, just like a big fog all the time.
But when the rains come and the
drag is applied and the upkeep man
comes along and does his part there
will be a fine road out this way and
it certainly was needed.

and work on the building will begin
very soon. ? They say they mean to
have a building and to furnish it
nicely and to maintain* a real school.
Only recently the people of the district
voted to increase the tax to 8
mills and the vote was unanimous,
and that looks like they mean to do
something. They are going to build
a tVo teacher school house with an
auditorium so that they may have a
place for the holding of meetings of \
various kinds, and that is the correct J
idea according to my way of think-;
ing. , j
Tuesday I went over to Vaugh-'
ville and I was greatly pleased to!
s-">e the fine work that is being done !
hti'. Over fifty per cent of the
chldren have taken the diphtheria1
anti-toxine and Miss Mamie Hill the;
efficient teacher is arranging to put.
on one of the health plays the latter,
part of the month, the lirst school in
the county to undertake this. I want'
to say more about this work up here
in the next article. I s'opped at Si!-'
verstreet on my return and had a
very pleasant conference with the
teachers at the noon hour and the !
work here seems to be getting in j
good shape. I am verv much pleased
with the manner in which Mr.
Merchant has taken hold of the job,
and I am sure that he means to do
things and that he is not afraid of
work, but on the contrary he and i
work will be pood friends all of the
school term. Thursday I am going
to Columbia to meet with the state >
superintendent and the other county ;
superintendents of the state at the '
call of the state superintendent.
Tuesday, Octber 24 has been designated
by the state fair authorities
as education day and school day at
the fair and the attractions will have
especial reference to education. I :
wrote the fair authorities some time
ago if they would make any concessions
for school teachers, and the re-!
7 I
ply is that if they will come in groups j
tickets of admission may be had for
30 cents each. I also took up the j
matter of transportation with Mr. W. j
E. McGee of the Southern Railway, j
and he says the fare is one and one '
half regular fare one way. and that'
he would be glad to leave us any one'
or more of the best coaches so that
the teachers might have a car to j
themselves. Mr. McGee also said that,
while the railroad does not haul the !

would take pleasure in assisting to se- (
cure special street cars for the party!
when it arrived in Columbia, so that;
you might get off the train and right,
on the street car, and he transferred
immediately to the fair grounds. Su-}
perintendent Cannon of city schools i
says he does not. favor giving a holiday
unless the teachers really go to
the fair, and neither do I. If they
desire to go, and will go, then I
would recommend to the trustees!
that they give this day for that pur-.
pose, but unless they are really intending
to go there is no use in a hoi-;
iday. Of course the matter of giving j
the day for this purpose is in the
hands of the trustees. If any num- 1
ber of teachers would like to attend!
the state fair and will let me know at1
once I will be glad to take the matter
up with the trustees, and also with
the state fair association and arrange j
for the entrance and also for the spe-,
cial coaches so that there would be no
crowding, and also for the street cars j
so that there would be no delay in;
getting to the grounds "after arrival
in Columbia. I should have the infor-;
mation at once so that I may make:
the necessary arrangement. If any j
number of teachers would care to go ;

accommodate them comfortably.'
Trustees could be counted in the j
same group. Personally I think the j
state fair has an education value and ;
I feel that a day off to attend by the ,
teachers of the county would be pro
fitably spent, but the matter of letting
the teachers take the day is for
the trustees of the various school dis-,
tricts to determine.
I would like to see a United States j
