GOOD ROADS COMMUNICATION.'
Editor Herald: The writer wishes
to congratulate the people of Fair
field on the stand they are taking on
the subject of permanent road build
ing. Good roads is one of, if not the
most important factor in the fight
to overcome the losses to our farm
ers through the work of the boll
weevil. Time is a factor of equal
importance. Good roads are time
savers, stock savers, machine savers,
nerve savers, money savers, wagon
savers, buggy savers. To make a suc
cess in the future the farmers must
stay on the job the same as the mer
chant, the lawyer, the banker or me
chanic, and this he cannot do spend
ing the time we now spend on the
roads and in the repair shops.
I would guess that Fairfield has
five or six hundred thousand dollars
lost time and short lived machines
due to bad roads would pay the in
invested in gas machines, and I am
quite sure, judging from my own per
sonal experience, that the repair bills
loss time and short lived machines
due to bad roads would pay the inter
terest many times over on your pro
posed bond issue. In going from Co
lumbia to Augusta before the roads
were improved I used to use just
double the gas and oil and double
the time that it requires now. This
also applies to Fairfield as well as.
to other counties. Road building is
no longer a local or neighborhood
question. It is of the ut most im
portance to state and nation. We no
longer live in* communities with just
me and my son John and his wife and
my wife. We are fast becoming cit
izens in reality of our nation. Thous
ands of acres of land are sold an
nually to people throughout this
country who are just touring along
the routes offering the best roads.
People leave their home now on trips
requiring weeks to make, just look
ing around. They go by Guide books
which carry maps showing counties
having the best roads, and with your
plans carried out, Old Fairfield would
be among these counties attracting
those just looking around from all
sections of this country, and to this
class of travelers more than any oth
er are lands sold. Build roads, at
tract travel, save your many ma
chines, stock, wagons, buggies, nerves,
lives, even your farms from further
depreciatiaon. Build an all yeai- sys
tem of roads and watch the results.
- ,Again I congratulate the people on
this great and grand undertaking.
May they succeed, is the prayer of
every progressive thought.

Some days past a subscriber of the
News and Herald called in our office
and chose to express himself in these
- words "tell it to the world the roads
between-are certainly bad, I
don't mean tell Winnsboro, but tell
the world". This expression does not
intend to cast any reflections on the
roads, but it does bring out a very
important fact-the News and Herald
should bie able to reach far more read
ers than it does at present. The News
and Herald is in a position* to tell
practically five thousand people in
this section some things, but if it was
compelled to live by the revenue from
its subscribers alone it could not ex

rEN TIMES BIGGESTIRCUS IN
Ringling Brothers and Barnum and
Bailey Day draws near and with it
will,come a vast circus of "ten thous
and wonders" to exhibit in Coulmbia,
This mammoth amusement enter
prise of 1922 has been oficially re
corded as "America's ten times great
est circus". It is a third bigger than
it was in 1921. For, in addition to
the many innovations offered then,
the present season's program numbers
ten more trained wild-animal displays
making twenty in all-and the most
superb trained horse acts that Eurpoe
has yet produced. The wild animal
and equine displays of 1921 were in
troduced merely that the Ringling
Brothers might judge of their popu
larity. So enthusiastically were these
numbers received that the famous
showmen immediately arranged for
the purchase of the world's finest
acts of this kind. An entire equine
circus was bought outright and
brought to this country last winter.
And while the Ringling Brothers and
Barnum and Bailey agents were se
curing this and the trained tiger, pol
ar bear, lion leopard and jaguar
groups, they had orders to engage
the foremost men and women per
formers of the European capitals.
And these stars from city and jungle
are all to be seen with this wonder
circus of 1922. Everything, includ
ing the great double menagerie of
more than a thousand animals and
exhibiting such rarities as a mite of
a baby hippopotamus and its three
ton mother, is to be seen for the
price of one admission ticket. And
by "everything" is meant not only
the wild animal and equine displays,
but the entire circus. More than 700
men and women, embracing the
world's foremost arenic stars, take
part. There are 100 clowns. Aside
from the ferocious beasts, the pro
gram includes forty trained elephants.
There are five companies of trained
seals, many (logs, bears, monkeys,
pigs and pigeons. It is the biggest
circus program the world has ever
seen, given under the largest tent.

VICTORIES FOR -U-G E rATIV E
Columbia, October 21.-Sweeping
victories for cooperative marketing
were won in the courts of North Caro
lina, Texas and Oklahoma during the
past week, according to statements is
sued yesterday by the South Caro
lina Cotton Grower's Cooperative As
sociation. In Texas and Oklahoma
the cotton contracts, which are pract
ically identical with the contract
signed by the members of the South
Carolina association, were upheld by
the courts and permanent injunctions
granted. restraining mcmbers of those
associations from disposing of their
cotton except through the Associa
tion. Temporary injunctions had been
secured against six members in Texas
and against several in Oklahoma
some time back.
In North Carolina a desperate ef
fort was made by enemies of the Tri
State Tobacco Association to have
dissolved and injunction which had
been issued against two members of
the association. Several of the ablest
lawyers in the state were employed
in the effort to have the contract de
clared unconstitutional but the court
in its decision made the injunction
permanent, declaring the contract
Very great interest was taken by
South Carolinians in the North Caro

the injunctions dissolved was made

is aimed to create a monopoly and
that it is a combination in restraint
