DAILY DURING CONFERENCE.
Beginning with this issue we will
publish a daily paper during the sessic n
of the Methodist Conference in New
berry. The paper will be issued each
morning and will cover in detail the
p.oceedir gs of C:nference and the locdL
field. The daily edition will be sent to
each one of our subscribers without ex
tra cost and will be sold on the streets
and at The Herald and News office.
The Conference met in Newberry
once before during the sojourn in this
ety of the present editor of The Herald
and News. That was in 1878 when we
were a nt in Newberry College.
At that dis nce apart it is not proba
ble that we will see another meeting of
the. Conference -in Newberry, though we
would like to see several more here.
At any rate' we have decided to try
the experiment of a daily for the ses
sion and will appreciate any notes of
interest which may be kindly furnished
by any of the brethren. We will try
to make the paper interesting and while
we will give some attention to local and
eurrnt events the paper will be pri
marily a Methodist Conference paper.
We would be glad to have a few
special ads for the extra issues and
will giveb a low rate so as- to help to
bear current expenses. It will be a
good advertising medium for it will go
regularly to our 1,750 subscribers and
we will print a few hundred additional,
making the total of each issue not less
at any time than 2,000.
We feel it will be a good tling for
our town and we believe will be appre
ciated by the Conference, at least we
THE ROLL OF HOMES.
We publish today the roll of the Con
ference and the assignment of homes.
We could not have published it as
soon as our cotemporary for the reason
we did not have the list and never saw
it until it was printed. .We did suppose
it would be furnished to both papers at
the same time but it wasn't. - We are
,ot complaining, but at. the time we
-. did feel that we were treated with
scant courtesy. There have been seve
ral changes and maybe it is just as well
it~ was not printed earlier. You will
find the roll arranged alphabetically by
hosts and guests.
A sentimental edjitok out in Kansas
asks: "Are there any sweeter-words
than these: 'I lfove; you?'" Perhaps
not; but the words, "Here's that dol
lar I owe you on sdbeecription," are not
lacking in delightful enunciation to the
er's .of a newspaper man-Wateree
And the larger the amount named
the sweeter become the words. The
only words half so sweet, and they are
about half as sweet are, "I can't pay
you any money, but here's a.load of
wood." And the colder the day the
sweeter these become. Itisanow winter.
Coungress convened yesterday. It is
likely that the greater part of the ses
sion will be devoted to the trusts and
some interesting measures may be
- Sale Day.
jYesterday was saleday, but no public
V sales were made. Those advertised
were settled and withdrawn before the
hour for sale, and the cryer had noth

head of mules, an old bugy nd acow.
There was a pretty good crowd in town
and all seemed to be busy. The square
was crowded with wagons loaded with
wood, which found ready sale. The crowd
was good natured and happy and the
city presented a busy appearance.

Bread and Bread Making.
Prof. Wiley, of the Agricultural De
partment at Washingtn, in an, article
on "Bread and Brea Baking," says,
"the nutritive value of wheat flour de-:
pends largely upon the character of
milling." The most scientifically rmilled
flour is "Clifton," made at Bransford
Mills, Owensboro, Ky. Insist on your

closed down Thanksgiving day in order
to give the operatives a holiday, which,
they of course enjoyed.
The young people of the mill were
entertained at the residence of Mr. A.
F. Northcutt Wednesday night at a
"Surprise Turkey Party" and on Thurs
day night at the residence of Mr. G.
S. Merchant with a nice little play.
Both occasions were enjoyed very

The union Thanksgiving services
were attended ThursdAy night by a
very small congregation, owing to the
fact that the weather was too disagree
able for the people to attend. How
ever small the congregation was, the
services were very interesting, for
when Rev. J. J. Long conducts a ser
vice he will most assuredly interest
Entertainments were not very scarce
in West End Saturday night. There
were two dances and two plays, all
It was very gratifying to a majority
of the voters of this community to
know. that Mr. Earhardt was elected
next mayor without a second primaiy,
and that he will have associated with,
him such an energetic set of aldermen. I
Now as Newberry is to have a new set
of councilmen next year, it is hoped
that the town will be in a better condi
tion in 1904. Get in harness and pull
hard gentlemen and the West End peo
ple will pull with you.
This correspondent would like to
make an apology for an announoemen
he made last week in his letter. He was
told by a person who was a member of
the Pecahontus that they were to give
an oyster supper in the Red Men's hall
last Saturday night. It was discovered
that this person had been misled, and
of course there was no supper. Both
parties are very sorry that this mistake
was made, but it was not their fault
and the Pocahontas must forgive them
Mr. J. D. Livingston met with a
very painful accident Saturday night.
From what I can learn -he went down
to Prosperity on the Southern train
Saturday night with the intention of
going on a hunt Monday. The train
pulled off just as he started to alight,
and his gun in some way tripped him
and threw him against a freight car.
One of his shoulders was dislocated,
and he was hurt internally as well as
externally. He was immediately put
under the care of a physician and sent
to his home Sunday.
Quite a peculiar incident happened inr~
West End Sunday. A little negro dis
guised himself by blacking his already
black face with smut and put on a dress,
and acted a little too vulgar for the
people. The result was Police Bouk
night arrested him.
Mr. J. E. Fulmnan went to Goldville
Saturday and returned Sunday.
It is sa!d that a certain young man of
West End went about 12 miles down
the country Saturday afternoon on a bi
cycle to see his best girl and was warned
not to go in such a manner as it might
rain. He did not heed, and the last
report was that he had not returned.
Of course it rained. "Mooch.''

results, such as sour stomach, fermen

something more serious is the matter

Rev. Irl R. Hicks 1903 Almanac.
To say that this splendid work of
science and art is finer and better than
ever, is stating it mildly. The demand
for it is far beyond all previous years.
To say that such results, reaching
through THIRTY YEARS, are not based
upon sound sense a~ usefulness, is an.
insult to the intelli ence of the millions.
Prof. Hicks, through this great Alma
nac, and his famous family and- scien
tific journal,.WORD AND WORKS, is do
ing a work for the whole people not ap
proached by any other man or publica
tion. A fair test will prove this to any
reasonable person. Added to the most
luminous course in astronomy for 1903,
forecasts of storms and weather are
given, as never before, for every day
in the year, all charmingly illustrated
with nearly two hundred engravings.
The price of single Almanac, including
postage and mailing, is THIRTY CENTS.
