Recently we suggesteI bien
nial terms for all municipal of
ficers. The charter of the town,
however, provides for annual
elections, and as the constitution
prohibits the amendment of
charters, the only way by which
the change could be affected
would be by surr.,ndering the
present charter and- taking out
a new one under the gener: l- w.
The wisdom of this step would
depend on the advantages offered
in the general charter as com

For the past week The State
has had a regular staff corres
pondent at the Charleston expo
sition in the person either of Mr.
Hoyt or Mr. Banks. The letters
from these two bright young
journalists who are doing some
of the best work they have ever
done are doing very much to im
press upon the people of the
State the magnitude of the expo
sition. The State (the old Pal

It should be a matter of great
gratitude to all South Carolin

trust these articles will excite i
farmers of the county to cot
the cost of their feed and to stu,

reduce their feed bill. Inste
of feeding all corn, which is
expensive andl which does i
give such good results, why
try come of the mixed, feeds ti

feeding the corn y%us do feed
the ear or whole graia, why
have it ground? Instead of do

results at less cost.

Wg-y should not Mt. Zion dc
likewise? Certainly from a his
torical standpoint ~ there is nc
school in the State that should
be more interested in the success
of the exposition than Mt. Zion
for a large per cent of the early
members of this time-honored
society were citiz %ns of the "City
by the Sea." Yes, let us have a
Mt. Zion Day-iot only a day
(or week) for the children of Mt.
Zion with their friends and
parents to attend, but a day for
the reunion of old Mt. Zion stu
dents of a third or half a century
ago. Let it not be forgotten that
there are many over the State
who still hold the name of Mt.
Zion with that same degree o.
reverence as the old students of
Oxford, Harvard or the Soutl
Carolina their alma mater, and
many of these we feel sure would
be pleased to have an opportunity
to meet again their schoolmates
of years ago.
Sunday's State contained a
notice of a propged railroad
from Soutbprt through the mil
districts of South Carolina to th'
coal fields of Tennessee. Boston
capitalists are said to be behind
the scheme and there is every
reason to believe that they mean
business. Such a road as is
proposed has been a long-felt
need. Almost a.ll the principal
roads of the State now run north
and south. Such a road would
ive a great eastern and western
route, and would open great
strips of territory not . now
touched by any road whatever.
Entering the State through Horry
-ounty and going out through
Spartanburg and Greenville
-ounties, r airfield county would
Lie directly in its path, and
n this connection it might be
vell to recall the fact that a
~harter was once secured for a
oad touching about the same
~erritory as is now pronfl~ --
the fact of its nearness to tl
proposed route, nor to its c
charter. The business men
the county and especially
Winnsboro should awake to tl
importance of their. taking soi
action to have the road cor
this way. Lengthy words as
the developments that such
road would bring about are x
-necessary. Quick action,
business" men is the one thi
necessary. Let the busine
nen of Winnsboro have a .-mae
ing, and take -sineh necess
.eps- as will insure a proj
representation of the town's i
~ county's interests before 1
Y promoters of this enterprise.
