SUPERVISOR KING RECEIVES
LETTER FROM CON
NEVER BEEN DONE
States no Case on Record Where
Government Built or Aided
in Thia Matter.
Supervisor J. Mack King lias re
ceived the following letter from Con
gressman Wyatt Aiken In regard to
government aid in building tbc pro
posed bridge aereas the Savannah
river. The letter ia solf explana
"l?, December, 1915.
"Dear Sir: -
"Your letter Gth instant relative to
obtaining old from Hie Unite;l States
government for tho purpose of build
ing a bridge across tho Savannah
river has been received. Tho letter
would have been acknowledged ear
lier but it has been forwarded about
from here to Abbeville and hack until
this ls tho first opportunity I have
thad to write you. There is no
case on record where the government
has built or aided in building a bridge
across a navigable stream, or any
other kind, unless thc government
owned it. If tho government owns
any at all it is where bridges are on
government property such as tho Yel
lowstone Park, etc. There have, beca
many desperate efforts made to got
aid from tho government In build
ing a bridge across the Potomac '/.ero
at Washington but without succoss.
All that congress can do is to grant
thc authority for the building of a
bridgo across a navigable stream. If
you wish a bil' of that t!:nractor pass
ed lot me kuc . and I will have it
"Yours very respectfully.

Mr. Charlea L<. Townsend of the
local Western Union oillce has au in

wonders with the cotton fanners. It
is a cotton chopper, and tho inventor

tured hut one of them Cave ?ftoi'kcd
so that tho farmers generally thought
lt advisable to Invest their money In
them. A machine of this kind is
greatly needed, since it .would mean
a saving of thousands of dollars to
The plans of Mr. Townsend's In
vention shows t'jbt ?he machine will
be mounted on a truck with two
wheels and will be drawn by one
horse. Tho machine includes a pair
of chopping members -which rotate
transversely to the dlreotlon of travel
of tlie truck, willer will chop out thc
plants at intervals. ATomnd those
chopping members will bo placed fen
dors or guards, which will be car
ried by tho rotary knife blade carry
ing members. Thc blades and the
fenders will be pendantly hung be
neath .-.ho supporting structure of the
chopper, so as to permit the chopping
Members to be moved Into or out of
an operative poaltto.- or to be swung
transversely of tho row or direction
of the -travel of thc chopper to pormlt
of the proper adjustment of tho chop
ping clements to irregular places In
the row of growing plants. All of
this machinery Is manipulated by
lovers, all of which are within easy
rcac? of the dTlver. Tho blades are
operated <by means of gears running
from the axle of tho wheels, and fol
low in regular order.
These machines will be manufac
tured under patent pending, and the
first one will bo brought to Anderson
to bo tested out.
