' THURSDAY, MAY 21, 7 City council never did a better . thing than when they passed the ordinance forbidding the keeping of hogs in the city limits. Now let them require dogs to be muzzled or kept off the streets and we'll be satisfied * for awhile. P': The city of Orangeburg is taking action against dogs running at large on the streets. Several mad dogs have been killed there recently and a petition is being circulated among the citizens asking that city council pass an ordinance requiring all " . < dogs which run at large to be muzzled. When is Bamberg going to take action on the dog question ? Vv*\ 9 A LITTLE BRAGGING, v c'.&* . \ ^ ^ ; V When The Herald gets straight '' ened out in its new quarters we will v have as fine a building for a news' paper office as there is in the State, and our equipment will be second to iy none. Our linotype machine is the latest model, and we have bought a full equipment for doing all kinds fx.' of book work, etc. Our extra supplies for tjie machine cost several hundred dollars. The machine is operated by an individual motor, and - . our two job presses also have indif:; ridual motors. In fact every machine in the house which requires ; power will be operated by a motor attached. V We now have tlyee motors, and in a short tima we will install a S&7 motor for the cylinder press on ;V which The Herald is printed. We have had some trouble to get this \ motor built, but we have about con^eluded the deal. At present we are printing the newspaper in our old building, in order that we may use xv mir e-asoline enerine to drive the s press. Our friends are cordially invited'to come in any night and see ' our new machines at work. We are - ^not quite straight, but they will be welcome. / In a short time we will make The rr. Herald eight pages permanently, aDd / if our advertisers will come across - . with the proper patronage,# we will print twice a week.' However, that is a matter for the future, but we have the equipment to get out a daily if necessary. ^ fS*, Now, all this cost money, and we want and need patronage. Our equipment, to say nothing of the building, is an investment of $ 10,000 , or more, and it is a fine advertise|p; /ment for a town the size of Bamberg (V* V to have such a newspaper office. You |v ' * may rest assured that we will soon <: get out a newspaper in keeping with the equipment. Frankly, our patronage up to date has not warranted the outlay, but we take pride in our . calling and wanted the best. Our / .v people should give us everything in | the way of job work and advertising ||y .that they have done. We need it, and no matter whether you like us ? ' personally or not it is a fact that .this newspaper is advancing the best interests of every merchant, business ':* < man, and property owner in Bamberg. . So it is not only helping The Herald, but you are helping yourself when you give us your business. Bamberg is a small county, and consequently the field is limited, so it is good business policy for all *our citizens y- to support their newspaper. \Ve might say that this is the smallest town in the State where a linotype has been installed and only a fev ?aa1,1v nfltitonqnofc ftova hnntfhf a W VVA1J UMT V WVUQUW M machine of this kind. We shall have more to say on this subject later. - 1 NINE CHILDREN BITTEN. Something Like This May Soon Happen in Bamberg. Greenville, May 15.?Nine children and a negro nurse were bitten by a Collie puppy here yesterday, and fearing that the animal was suffering with rabbies, the attending physician directed that the dog be killed and the head sent to the Pasteur Institute in Atlanta for a careful examination.' The dog was undoubtedly suffering* with some disease. One of the physicians said it might be acute indigestion. The parents of the children are naturally very much disturbed and the result of the examination of the dog's head is awaited anxiously. Several weeks ago another child was bitten and as a result of the examination the offending dog was declared rabid. The child was treated at the Pasteur Institute and no ill effects have appeared.

The following clipping from The Union Signal, a temperance paper, has been handed us by a friend with j the request for its reproduction in our columns. Many of our readers are familiar with the brilliant record of Mr. Car mack as congressman and United States Senator from Tennessee. He was defeated for re-election as Senator by Ex-Governor "Bob" Taylor, and he is now a candidate for governor on a prohibition platform: The campaign for state prohibition waxes warm in Tennessee. The contest is between the rival candidates for governor, ex-Senator Carmack and Governor Patterson, and the issue is between state prohibition and local option. Inasmuch as the whole state except four cities is now under prohibitory law, it is evident that the people have already expressed their "option" in the ipatter. Governor Patterson says, however, that he stands for a local option law and is opposed to "fanatical legislation." His opponentsadd that he stands with the saloon element, and that his record as governor by no means fulfills his ante-election promises in reform matters. Mr. Carmack stands squarely for state prohibition. In a recent debate with the governor at Chattanooga, he made a most stirring declaration and appeal for state prohibition, from which we quote: The question of the open saloon is one of the great problems in this state as it has been in other states. I am one of those who believe that the saloon id an unmitigated curse to the state, a great source of crime and corruption, a Duraen upon ius industries, a blight upon its homes. I am one of those who have been convinced by the failure of all regulative and restraining legislation, that some way or other, by some method or other, the saloons must be destroyed. I have heretofore adhered to the plan pursued by the Anti-Saloon League, which found expression in the Pendleton law, whose practical effect is to leave each community to fight out its own battles with the saloons, I will say to you frankly that I had expected to adhere to that I policy in this campaign. But the wise general adapts his strategy and his tactics to the movement of the enemy. A short time ago the representatives of the liquor interests, not only in Tennessee, but from other states, assembled in Nashville and issued their manifesto, slanderously assailing the character and motives of the Anti-Saloon League. They openly and defiantly proclaimed their purpose to enter this campaign with a view of controlling the politics of the state in the interest of the saloon. This means that the liquor power of this whole country will make a battle ground of Tennessee, and if we adhere to the former plan it will give them the vast advantage of concentrating all their power of corruption upon three or four points, while the great body of temperance voters in the state will be idle and impotent spectators of the conflict. My countrymen,; when we see the liquor power of this, whole country marshaling its battalions for an invasion of this , state, I believe we should summon to our standard every j enemy of the saloon from the moun-, tains to the Mississippi, meet the, enemy at the border and end. this war in one great pitched battle. When that battle is over and the victory won, let us write upon the statute books a law, as long and as broad as the state of Tennessee, which will banish the liquor traffic finally and forever from every inch of our soil. I know there are people in Chattanooga who hope to reap a harvest of profit from the fugitive and expatriated saloons of other states, but I say to you, my countrymen, that no saloon ever added one dollar t& the moral worth and prosperity of any community. I say to you that every dollar of capital invested in the saloon is a dollar withdrawn from productive enterprise and devoted to purposes of moral and economic destruction. I say to you people of Hamilton county that the curse of God is upon every saloon dollar everywhere, and that you can reap no reward, either in this world or in any world to come by a traffic with the devil in the ruined lives of men, the broken hearts of women and the starved souls of little children. I appeal to the higher manhood and the higher womanhood of Hamilton county. This is a great and progressive city. You are a great andenlichtenedi>eoDle. Proclaimit? proclaim it, my countrymen, to all the world that you are not so given up to a blipd and besotted worship of Mammon that you prize the dollars of the saloon more than you prize the peace of your homes and the souls of your neighbors. The Knoxville Sentinel, which reports the debate in full, says editorially: Our accounts of the receptions accorded the two candidates indicate that despite the fact that Mr. Carmack boldly advocates state-wide prohibition, which is supposed to be unpopular in Chattanooga, he had a majority of the crowd with him and was received with the greater enthusiasm. If this reception in a supposedly hostile city may be taken as an indication of the sentiment through i the state, Tennessee is soon to stand among the prohibition commonwealths. * SUICIDE IN ANDERSON. W. M. Dyar, of Fork Township, Blows Out his Brains. Anderson, May 15.?W. M. Dyar, a white man living in Fork township, this county, committed .suicide by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun. He literally blew the top of his head off, his brains being scattered over the ground for a considerable area. So far as can be learned there was no cause for his rash act. J. J. Cromer, on whose place the suicide occurred, says that Dyar was subject to despondent spells and that he had * * 1 ' J At taiKea several times a unrig me past year of killing himself. He left his home just before the tragedy, telling his wife that he was going to see his brother-in-law, a mile or so away. He carried his gun with him, and instead of calling on his relative he went to a field near his home and fired the fatal shot. % Magistrate Fant held an inquest and returned a verdict that the deceased came to his death from selfinflicted wounds. The deceased was about 45 years of age and was a quiet, hard-working man. Fine Racers Here. Mr. L. W. Verner, of Seneca, S. C., a veteran horse trainer and driver,'who has been called the "Lord Chesterfield" of the track, is now in the city with a string of horses which he is training at the race track of Jones Bros. Tney have a lot of very fast horses, which are owned by parties in different sections of the State, and Jones Bros, have four horses which are being handled by Mr. Verner. These horses will be put in - - ? A. 4-Urt fltVAA condition nere uuruig cue ucav tmcc months and raced at the different tracks this fall and winter. The animals now in the stables at the track are: Sorrel gelding, green trotter, high bred and very fast; owned by W. M. Thompson, Greers, S. C. Sorrel mare, green pacer, very promising; J. T. Willard, Spartanburg, S. C. Bay gelding, pacer; J. S. Haynes, Roebuck, S. C. / B^y gelding, green trotter; D. H. Corints, Laurens, S. C. Ben Hur, black gelding, record 2.29$, L. W. Verner, Seneca, S. C. The following horses are owned by Jones Brothers: Bad News, bay gelding, record 2:08$. Jeff McGregor, sorrell stalion, record 2.16$. Queen B., brown mare, record 2.11$. Lillian C., green trotter. Mr. Verner is an experienced trainer of many years in the business of handling racers, and those having horses which are promising should give them a try out in his hands. The weather is food, the track is in fine condition, and e is well equipped. As a special favor Jones Bros, ask that automobiles and buggies will keep off the track, as it is now closed to the public, and will be closed for the next three months, when the training of horses is going on. After that time the track will agam be open to their friends. Clemson College. We received last week an invitation to attend the twelfth annual commencement of Clemson College, to be held June 7th to 9th. The baccalaureate sermon is to be preached by Carter Helm Jones, D.

C B Edwards, of Edwards & Brough ton, printers, Raleigh, N C, painted his house Devoe three years ago; he had used 30 gallons paste paint before and bought 30 gallons Devoe. Had 16 left. Paste paint is extra-thick?with-whitewash. Mayor W. W. Carroll, Monticello, Florida, says: My painter said it would take 35 gallons to paint my house; it took 20 gallons Devoe, His house is the best paint job in1x>wn; and he says Devoe is the whitest white of all paints. Jones & Rodgers; bought 5 gallons Devoe to prime Mr. Pratt's house at Merkel, Texas. It painted two coats. The reason for nobody guessing little enouerh Devoe is: they learned in a bad school: other paints. Yours truly ? 12 F. W. DEVOE&CO., New York. P. S. J. A. Hunter sells our paint. Mr. D. W.
