Some of the young lady delegates seemed to care more about \ having a good time than anything else. fry.,' The race horses of Harry Payne Whitney, the New York millionaire, were shipped North from Aiken last week on a special train composed of a Pullman Sleeper and palace horse cars. These horses travel in a lot | more style and a great deal more comfortably than can many poor white folks. 8^" ' ? - - - - ? T n?LU / The letter 01 Mr. n. j. orauiuuu in another column makes the Conjr, federate monument situation plain, and unless all the people of the county do their part the monument ft ' will not be erected. Mr. Brabham has worked hard, but he has not had the co-operation of people in other p sections of *the county. It is now squarely before them. The town of Bamberg has done her part; will the . balance of the county do as well? |j Whatever is done must be done Hp quickly. fcIt is stated that Wolfe, the disP penser in Columbia, who is short in wJ his accounts, will not be prosecuted, as his friends have made good the shortage. Does paying back the money lessen the crime in the eyes of the law? If he was some poor negro he would be prosecuted, and shnnld he no favors shown him f;' even if he is a white man. If noth-? is done with Wolfe one may look for ; other dispensers to be short also. He should be made an example, and we hope the case against him will be W:' prosecuted vigorously. ~ We wear no man's collar, and we g think as we please and say what we think.?Bamberg Herald. i Well, what sort of a collar do you %: , wear?

ADVERTISING THE TOWN. It-will soon be eight years that we lived in Bamberg, and during that time there has been many a column printed in our paper which was writ? ten by us for the purpose of booming the town and inciting its people to greater things along the lines of commercial and moral improvement. If all of this matter was gotten togetherand printed at onetime, it would fill up one issue of our entire a paper and no doubt a great deal more. It took time to write all these articles; it costs money to set type; paper costs money; type costs money, and if our contribution to the growth of the town was valued at actual cost to us it would amount to many times more than the contri bution of any citizen to the public welfare, with the exception of the gift of Gen. F. M. Bamberg of $5,000 a few years ago to the Carlisle Fitting School. Never thought of it in this way did you? Yet it is true as gospel, and you can't get around it. Here the editor of your paper has actually spent more money, ten times more than the most of you, for the good of the town. That's one way of looking it, you say, and yet it is the correct way. You may say it is the duty of an editor to boom his town. Not any more so than it is the duty of every citizen who f, . .. ' yl* V.. 'V -fe . makes his living here. The Bamberg Herald does not belong to the public; i it belongs to the editor and no other I individual has a dollar invested in it. j It is not being run to advertise the town; it is being published to furnish a living for the editor and his family, just as you run a store, or bank, or any other business, and we owe no more to the town than any business ; located here. True we get a living i out of the town and county; so does ' every other business. We mention these things not in spirit of vanity or highly developed self esteem, but as a protest against the sentiment which generally prevails that it is the duty of a newspaper to say nice things about the town, its advantages and to keep our enterprise and progress constantly before the public. In this connection let us say that we are not attempting to magnify our feeble efforts for the advancement and growth of Bamberg, we * only wish we had done more, both j through the columns of our news paper and personally, and we expect | to keep up the work of advertising j the town and giving our services | for the upbuilding of the town and community. W.e are not satisfied with the progress of Bamberg. True we have done well as a people in the last few years; let us do better; let us go forward to greater things. The town has the men and the money j if we will only put these agencies to work for a greater Bamberg. Op- ; Dortunity is knocking at our door, 1 i * ? ' and great growth and progress will be our portion if we will only take advantage of our opportunities. But; we will have to work and put our money to work. Nothing of value is to be had without labor. The Herald could be of much greater benefit to the town if it was I better supported. We need more Bamberg advertisers and subscribers, especially advertisers. An Orangeburg merchant is our largest advertiser, and so long as Bamberg merchants do 'not support The ! Herald, our efforts for the growth of the town will be seriously ; crippled. _ _ I A WASTE OF MONEY. The Carey-Cothran liquor law has. some useless provisions, and one of j the greatest is that of advertising in I so many newspapers for bids and: the publishing of statements. This is no doubt a good thing for the newspapers, but we fail to see wherein it makes the law any more perfect or in fact where any good is to be < derived from it. It seems to us a I iicolocc ovnonsp and we are not I afraid to say so, even if we do get some revenue from it. The stateI ments as published convey no idea to the general public of the real condition of affairs, and it would j ; take a good book-keeper to understand them. In the matter of bids, there is, absolutely no use in adveri tising in the county papers, for the | whiskey houses do not see them. |The daily papers are the ones to advertise in when bids are wanted. Possibly some people will say we are hurting our business by this sort of j talk, as we are trying to cut off a j portion of our revenue, but we want to say right here that we are not j concerned about this. We made a j living before we received any dis pensary auverusmg, aim we wuum continue to get along and pay our debts if this source of income was cut off. We have already refused more advertising from whiskey houses than we believe we will get out of the dispensary in a year. We have no fault to find with those newspapers who advertise whiskey. That's their business, and if they choose to accept it, well and good, but we cannot understand why I. Trager should want so much information about the county boards and dispensary affairs. We did not reply to the letter he sent us enclosing a printed blank requesting a lot of information, the names and addresses of the county board, etc., but we notice several newspapers are carrying his ad., and we presume they must have given the data wanted. Newspapers should avoid even the appearance of evil, and even if we had thought of accepting a whiskey advertisement, we would not have ' given the information asked for. It is not the site of a town, but its character that makes it a desirable Inlace to live. A live, prosperous town is a desirable one to live in, and a town may prosper and yet be small. Every citizen in a town should.be interested in its prosperity. One of the best ways to help a town is to speak well of it. It is true patriotism to stand by your own town, and interests that affect the i town should' affect every citizen. ' x '. mmm . . . ' J'.'v V- ' - '' . .; v- .

Letters, Bills and News From Home Make Up Pedro's Dinner?Officers Fear He Will Devour a Presidential Message. The only actual living tomb of literature extant is doing business daily on ' the battleship Virginia. His name in full is Pedro of Guantanamo. Fedro is an ancient Cuban goat. Prior to assuming his present duties as mascot of the new flagship of the second division of the Atlantic fleet he performed a similar duty for some six years on the second class battleship Texas. As a kid he was trained to eat up useless letters, bulky pamphlets and out of date orders, and in the last few years he has earned a reputation as the most capacious waste paper basket on earth. That he deserves the reputation nobody who ever saw the animal at work will deny. An unusually heavy mail had been received aboard the Virginia at the Brooklyn navy yard just before an enterprising Tirfies reporter arrived. When the letter carrier came aboard Pedro was away paying a visit to the big white goat mascot of the battleship. Louisiana, which- is berthed on the same side of the yard.about 300 yards south of the dry dock in which the Virginia is being fitted with submerged torpedo tubes. Captain Schroeder of the Virginia, most of his officers and perhaps a third of the crew received letters, pamphlets or papers of some sort It was apparent at once that Pedro's services would be needed. /'Where's Pedro?" a young midshipman asked a junior lieutenant as he Kno^tnur ? hnltv mmmnnlnfl.

Now, therefore, pursuant to a resolution adopted by the Town Council assembled, an election is ordered to be held at or near the Town Hall, in the Town of Bamberg, in the County of Bamberg, South Carolina, on the Beventh day of May, A.

The ordnance officer had a large catalogue sent to him by a powder firm. The executive officer had a two pound volume sent out by a naval tailor. In fact nearly everybody had mail of some sort they were ready to dispose of. The officers were about to send a marine In search of the missing Pedro when suddenly the gray coated old animal was sighted coming at full speed across the little bridge in front of the ferry landing connecting with the Cob dock on the other side of the PEDBO TACKLED CATALOGUE. yard. Pedro had seen the letter carrier when he came aboard the Louisiana and knew the moment be saw him that the postman had left plenty of work for him on the Virginia. * Up the gangplank he trotted at a twenty-three knot gait, his mouth watering for the literary treat he knew ! was awaiting him. The midshipman shoved forward the missive in the feminine hand, and Pedro snapped it up. * lota* tha lottor vflg hplntf A Uliiiuiu javn w? ^ attended to by the ironclad digestive organs of the goat Then Pedro tackled the naval tailor's catalogue, next the home papers, then a business letter that somebody was very anxious to lose, then another love letter and finally a batch of circulars. It took an hour for him to finish with the officers' mail. Then when the last sheet of somebody's letter from home had disappeared he headed, still unsatisfied, in the direction of the crew's quarters for dessert He was not disappointed, for every man from the gunner's mates to the stokers had saved something from the afternoon's mail for him. At 5:11 p. m., just exactly two hours and ten minutes after the feast began, he had finished. There was then not a piece of paper not needed for future reference left on the battleship. Pedro had done his duty. Ten minutes later he was sound asleep just abaft the armored wall of the forward twelve inch turret.
