My dear Mr. Musiek:
I hardly know how to express
my application of your kindness
in securing this position for me.
It is certainly kind of you, and
indeed no one would have appre?
ciated it more than I. I shall
ever praise you for your kind?
ness, and whenever I can say a
good word for Piedmont 1 shall
be glad to do so.
I will give you this little in?

The day I began work here,
there was another lady from
Atlanta went to work with the
same facilities I had, only she
claimed ten years' experience
She stayed one week and said
she could do the work, if she
had a machine. She was pre
sented with a No. 10 Remington,
but no results. Another girl
came from Ashville and several
from Charlotte, but no stenog
rapher yet. This old Piedmont
student is still here.
While 1 wrote only forty-five
letters as my first day's work,
I wrote 107 letters yesterday.
This is surely an example of a
student from Piedmont and one
from else where. I am glad I am

SubsetIherl nwl sworn to before me|
th s 7th day of Feb. 1913,
Ja in es W. Harman,
appeared in your paper some
three weeks ago, entitled "Too
many yellow breeches."
In the first place, we were not
aware that you were a road
official, altho' we did know that
a majority of the men and boys
of the town have had some posi?
tion with the county since the
road work started. Why is it
that you feel duty bound to reply
10 our letter, while the com
nunications of T?te Harman,
ind W. P. Payne were passed by
vithout comment? Was it not
oecause you knew they would
go after you rough shod if you
offered to critici.se facts, euch aa
they set forth?
If you hire a man to build a
plank fence and be measures
every plank from three to five
times before he saws it in two,
and you were paying him by the
day, wouldn't you think he was
wasting time at your expense?
Or of if you hire a boss to over
l see your farm hands, don't you
think you would have a right to
criticise him if he was wasting
your time and money? You in?
timated that Thompson Valley
citizens do not know when a
road is poorly built. I didn't
discuss the manner in which the
roads are being built. Of course
a Thompson Valley farmer is not
supposed to know a good road
from a bad one, but to be sure,
any man or boy who has lived in
town all their lives, and never
owned a horse or drove a wagon
and would not know whether
the hame string went at the top
or the bottom of the collar, of
course this wise guy ki ows all
about road making.
Perhaps you humble corre?
spondent does not know a good
road from a bad one, but the
"yellow pants" article was sug?
gested by conversations with
?ome of the best citizens of our
community, but they live in the
land of ignorance in Thompson
Valley, so their opinion is of no
value whatever. If you are so
well posted on the rtad doings
in this section, will you kindly
iell us who paid the surveyors
for the time they were loafing
at a certain store in tbis com?
Furthermore, I would like to
ask you how many times was
the piece of road made by Kin
cer & Vermillion, leading up
Cavitt's Creek, which is given
up to be the best piece of road
in the county; how many times
was this piece of road surveyed?
If you do not know, ask Mr.
If the good people of Thomp?
son Valley have a grievance let
them make complaint to the
Board of Supervisors or the pro?
per road authorities. The boys
in "Yaller Breeches," we take
it, obeyed orders.- Ed.
