Need of Good Roads.
The Georgetown Times says fifty
years ago there was some excuse lor
bad roads, for our country was poor.
Now it is rich, there is no excuse. A
good road is always to be desired
and is a source of comfort and con
venience to every traveler. Good
roads attract population, as well as
good schools and ;hurches. Good
roads improve the value of property,
so that it is said a farm lying five
miles from market, connected by a
bad road, is of less value than an
aqually good farm connected by a
good road. A larger load can be
drawn by one horse over a good road
than by two over a bad one.
CLEMSON O?LLEGE NOTES.
Graduation Exercises to Be Held on
the 18th of June.
The first ball game of the season
was played on the campus, between
the University of Georgia and Clem
son on March 27th. Despite the fact
that the weather was disagreeable, a
large crowd saw the game. Both
teams did splendid work. Clemson
put up a hard fight, but was defeated
by the Georgia boys. The score for
this first game stood 5 to 2 in favor
of Georgia. A second game was
played on the evening of March 28th.
The game was snappy from start to
finish, but the victory was snatched
from Clemson again. The score was
3 to 0 in favor of Georgia.
As the college opened one week
later last September than it has done
heretofore, connnenc-'ment exercises
will be one week later. The bac

ACTED VERY BADLY.
This Automobile Could Hardly Have
Been From Here.
The State of last Tuesday says:
"Last Sunday afternoon an automo
bile comin'g in the direction of Co
lumbia from Orangeburg was about
to meet a wagon containing a man
and two or three children. The man
signalled the driver of tae automo
bile and going to the head of his
mule, tried to hold him. The auto
mobile driver disregarded the signal
and the car sped on. The mule broke
away and ran .from the road Into a
cotton field and broke the shafts.
The car was then out of sight. Such
incidents are all too. common. They
arouse resentment gainst all owneis
of automobiles. Respectable motor
ists exert themselves to prevent such
behavior on the part of reckless driv
ers, bat unless some method of ap
prehending and punishing the latter
class, harsh legislation and prejudice
on the part of juries against motor
ists will be the inevitable conse

In loving memory of our beloved
son and brother, Edward Thomas Ed
wins. Jr., who died April 5, 1899.
Twelve sad years have passed since
he has left us,
Whom we loved and cherished dear.
Can we help but feel so lonely .
When our dear Tommie is not
No more his kind and loving face
Shall light the gloom of home;
Yet in memory's love we see him,
While in sorrow we're alone.
We loved him; yes, we loved him;
But Jesus loved him more,
ADd He has sweetly called him
To yonder shining shore.
The golden gates were open,
A jrentle voice said come,
And with farewell unspoken
He calmly entered home.
Twelve years have passed, aud still
We miss him;
Friends may think the wound Is
Little do they know the sorrow
That lies in our hearts concealed.
Sweetest thoughts, shall ever linger
'Round the grave where he is laid
Oft from our hearts comes a bitter
Ob, why did our dear Tommie die?

Coast Line Trains Collide.
A dispatch from Sumter says there
was another collision in the Atlantic
Coast Line yard Monday night be
tween a freight train and a passen
ger. The passenger from Augusta
was coming in; the freight was shift
ing. The engine of the passenger hit
a box car and demolished it; the pas
sengers were very much jarred. The
porter of the Pullman was thrown
against a table and was injured
enough to be removed to the hospi
tal. The railroad yards at Sumter
have been very congested of late and
the freghts are continually shifting
over the passenger tracks. It is not
a month ago that a passenger train
standing in front of the station was
run into by a shifting freight.

Happenings in and Around the Town
Bowman, April 7.?Special.?The
residence of Mr. Kimmie Shuler, a
few miles above Bowman, was de
stroyed by fire about 9 o'clock last
Wednesday night. Mr. Shuler was at
I Orangeburg at the time. The cause
I of the fire is not known but it is
I thought by some that rats started it,
while others say it may possibly have
been robbed and then fired. The
building was insured, it is said, to the
amount of $800, which will cover in
a large measure the loss.
Crops are .being planted in the
main somewhat later than usual.
Some of the "early birds" however,
are through planting corn and are
on the rush for planting other crops.
Some cotton ia being planted, but the
bulk of this crop will not be planted
for several weeks yet. Fields of com
that were planted several weeks ago
are beginning to show up but germi
nation is not very rapid, owing to the
late cold weather. More moisture and
warm sunshine is badly needed just
now in order to quicken the germlna
tion of seed now being planted.
Small grain is surely in need of
a good soaking rain just now. The
light showers from time to time have
produced insufficient moisture for the
growing grain crops and unless it
comes quite soon, small grain will be
almost a cemplete failure.
The past winter has indeed ben a
remarkable one so far as the weather
is concerned as to precipitation. Oc
tober being the last month in which
anything like the usual amount of
rain fell as per monthly qaoto. Since
then only 6.07 inches has fallen to
April 1st, 1911, with a normal de
ficiency of nearly 14.00 incheB, a re
markable record. Of course this is the
local record of the weather bureau
[office at Bowman which is practically
I correct for this entire section of coun
try. There is "lots of rain" ahead
somewhere. But when? That'B the
question. Who can answer?
Immense quantities of fertilizer
Is being handled here but the amount
is beginning to diminish considerably
now of late with only one train on
the road the past week.
The Blake Lumber Co. is making
fairly good headway in the construc
tion of their road toward Four Hole
swamp the present indicated terminal
near Mr. George W. Wilson's large
farm about seven miles from Bow
man. This road has been hauling
fertilizer too along the road as it is
being completed saving no few miles
of hauling the heavy stuff along some

The News From the Stores.
The relation of the merchant to
his public is much like that of the
newspaper man to his audience. The
public, or at least the feminine end
of it, picks up the newspaper with as
much eagerness to learn the news
of bargains and of styles as to set
what the army is doing in Texas. The
merchant who does not respond to
this demand with a good story about
his offerings and values, meets the
same fate as the newspaper man who
does not know a good piece of news
I when he meets it on the street. When
advertising fails to attract, it is
usually because the writer failed to
make it newsy. In this spring sea
son there is a human interest story
in every retail business, story of the
fleeting caprices of style, of shrewd
bargaining by which the merchant
has protected his customers, of over
stocks that help family income go
farther. The public listens, Air.
Merchant! Are you there?
Bridge Over Edlsto Burned.
A dispatch from Branchvllie says
the Fitz bridge across the Edisto Riv
ler, on the public road between Ram
berg and Branchville, was burned on
Wednesday. Fire was seen in about,
two hundred yards of the bridge by
the carrier of the mail on Route So.
2 as he was on his rounds. Seeing
that it was close to the bridge he in
formed the first residents beyond of
state of affairs, and that they should
attend to the matter. No heed was
paid, and in a short time the bridge
was on fire. Before the flames could
be checked all of the swamp part oi
the bridge and a portion of the bridge
over the bed of the stream was de
stroyed. The loss of this bridge at
this time is a heavy blow to the farm
ers of that section, and also to
