TO MIAU TUB HOADS
We call attention to a DOWS urticle
u another cul mini of The lntclllgen
er thin morning chronicling the or
ganization among farmers of t he
lebanon section of a road dragging
club. In response to an invitation
from .Mr. L. It. Thonipnon, a progres
sive fanner of that section, a number
of residentB of the community gath
ered at lils homo.recently for tho pur
pose of organizing BUCll a club and
agreeing upon a plan of action.
Twenty-five milos of roadway were
apportioned for systematic dragging,
by way of a starter. Thia will be
over tho upper highway from Ander
son to Pendleton, and it will receive
regular dragging over its entire
We ure further Informed that this
meeting marks but the beginning,
that soon another will be held, ut
which time lt is expected every road
of the community will bo udded to
the hst that will receive treatment.
Drags are now being mude, and as
soon as thu timo is propitious the
work viii begin.
A more wholesome piece of news
han nut been printed in a local paper
during tlie year. Such a spirit among
tho people of n section in most com
mendable. It shows that thoy are
alive to the beat interests of tho com
munity, unselfish, generous and pub
lic spirited. Such an organization in
every section of Anderson would
work wonders for tho Improvement of
the rondwaya throughout the county,
giving the banner county of the Pied
mont a systom of highways second to
nono in tho state. The value of good
roads to a community ia a truth so
well known und a subjoct so often
discussed that we need not touch on
that point at all In this connection.
Tho success of the Lebanon club
and all other clubs, for that matter,
dopend upoii tho active cooperation of
all the people of the commu 'ty. Un
less this active cooperntlon exists
from tho very start the club might as

club will not turn back after setting
Its hand to tho plow, and that Its ex

THE HAPPY PLANTER
N. L. Willet, agricultural writer for
the Augusta Chronicle, tells a story
of a farmer In hlB vicinity who "af
ier iiatonmg to the various preach
ments on crop diversity, this year
tried lt out." He had nover before
grown anything but cotton, and had
learned nothing about transforming
end converting the crops, so he ?nd?
himself with produce on his hands
which he may not be able to sell.
"Tlie man "who has not learned tb
.transform farm cropB into beef, ?p'areV
ribs and chicleen has not gone far In
utfHculture," snys Mr; Willet.
Tho man, however, is happy. He
says ho "feels this year a thousand
times better than last year.". "I had
then no food In tlie barn or cellar, but
today i httve enough food In some
lines to last my plantation for two
years if I could only keep lt.- Cer
tainly I have on my place sufficient
farm food for a wholo year's wants.
You have no Idea," ho continued,
"what a burden and load has been
lifted from my mind this year-a bur
den that weighed exceedingly heavily
and sorely a year ago. I have peaco
of mind now, where I bad wretched
ness a year ago. My eight cr nine
bales of cotton represent, to me clear
prout, and I can go into the work of
the new year unafraid and independ
ent, and. with absolute assurwice."
The inability to get rid ot cotton tn
1914 was a blessing in disguise to
many a southern farmer. He had
been hearing "various preachments
on crop diversity" ' for years but so
long as be Could move his cot toa,
they fell on deaf . ears. Brought
right up. against want by last year's
financial difficulties, he bas begun to
take.the road which leads to real
