THE STREETS PLACARDED,
Zr. Editor: Ai a public spirited
citize I a-k why not have the names
of VnOnsboro streets placarded so
people will know one street from an
oilier. I saw a man the other day who
had been btre 30 years and did not
know one street from the other. It
would cost the town but a trifle com
pared to the popularity that it would
add to our town. I think there are
others who think as I do. Let us have
the name ot every street put up on the
corners. Winnsboro is old enongh
and good enough looking to "dress
up" that much. H. w. 8.
