A TRIP TO SALUDA.
A Prosperous Section of South Carolina
Along the Way-The Telephone
A representative of The Herald
and News accompanied the editor
on a drive from Newberry to Saluda
and return on Friday of last week.
It is desired here to make a few
comments upon the prosperity which
was in evidence along the route and
on sonie other matters of general
Interest.to the people of the two
Newberry %vas left at 6.30 o'clock
on Friday morning. The route
taken lay via the steel bridge. The
road from Newberry to the steel
bridge is in fairly good condition,
as it u8ually is at this season of the
year. This road was recently
worked from Newberry to Bush
river with the good roads nachinery
and several very bad places were
patched up. At present, as stated,
the road is in fairly good condition,
but as soon as the had weather and
hard rains of winter come there is
nothing to prevent it from becoin
ing in the same terrible condition
in which it was (luring 4ast winter.
The road needs to be graded and
macadamized in places. Parts of
the road, as is the case with every
other road in the county, could be
put in excellent condition by mixing
clay with the sandy part and sand
with the clay. Gravel for ma
cadamizing abounds along the
road, the sand and clay are there
waiting to be mixed, the county
has the most modern machinery for
grading and doing the other work,
and the whole road could be put in
the best condition at not very great
The small bridges across ditches
and small streams are in bad condi
tion, and it is simply an accident
when a horse manages to cross one
of these bridges without breaking a
leg. There is hardly a small bridge
between Newberry and Saluda
court house which has not a broken
plank or a bad hole. These places
could be fixed at small cost and
this work should be done at once.
Every one cf these holes in bridges
could be repaired at less cost
probably than would result from
one lawsuit against the county
on account of an accident to stock
Otie other matter in regard to the
road :Tihe 'whold road should be
widened. There are few points in
the whole twett-four uiziles where
two( bLiggies can pass without great
inconvenience. On a highway as
freq uently used as t his road,* this
amounts to a great loss of time and
This road is one of tihe most im
portanit and one of the most fre
qunently used roads in the two
Counties. It is the direct route
from Newberry to Saluda, and is of
a great deal more importance to
Newvberry than to Saluda on ac
count of the fact that most of New
berry's Saluda trade comes this
way, and when the roadl is iln had
