People Interested in Good Roads.
There is more real interest among
the people in highway improvement
than we have ever observed before.
The heavy and prolonged rains of
spring and summer caused roads that
had hitherto hien good at that sea
son to become almost impassable.
This condition in summer was some
thing that the people were unaccus
tomed to, causing them to realize
as never before the need for perma
nent highway improvement.
Edgefield county can never have
satisfactory public roads until the
people give the supervisor greater
support and co-operation and until
sufficient funds are provided by bond
.issi or otherwise. It is a physical
imossibility for the supervisor with
.aorce of fourteen convicts to keep
approximately twelve hundred miles
>f road in passable condition, es
pecially as so small a portion of
these roads have heen re-located. It
is much easier to keep a public road
in good condition that has been prop
erly surveyed than it is to keep the
old worn-out road bed in good con
The people of the Colliers commu
nity have taken an advanced step in
road' building that will be attended
with excellent results. Not only will
the old Martintown road be greatly
improved but the action of these
jood people, whose names are pub
lished in this issue, will stimulate
other communities to take similar ac
tion. Realizing that it is useless to
expect relief from the- county, the
citizens along this main thorough
fare will j ?ut this road in good con
dition themselves. We commend
them in the highest possible terms.
It is a splendid example of public
>irrt that is worthy of emulation.
