  • LKI.aCHJED close to THE $300,000 MARK

    Newberry has done well in the mat- ter of the sale of the Liberty Bonds. Her citizens got busy witnin the last few days and went out and explained the' bonds to the people and they re- sponded nobly and patriotically to the call. Two meetings were held in the court house during the week, one on Tuesday afternoon and another on Wednesday afternoon at which sev- eral patriotic speeches were made and the necessity of the people buying the bonds explained to the people and they responded to the call.

    i Committees went out to the peoole and told them about the bonds and; tlie people bought. One party drove out and waked the people up at night and sold' bonds to them, the commit- tee getting back is the city about two a,. m. The total amount sold was $188,-

    950.00. and apart from about $100,- WOO.OO ta&en Dy me conon uims auu the banks the bonds were sold in 6mall denominations to the people, just what this issue was intended for. The total assessment for Newberry

    county or the amount apportioned to ^Kke-county to be sold was $130,000.00.^^5o Newberry county came across with40 per cent, more than her share.
