daughter and son-in-law. Mr. and
Mrs. S. A. Rikard, for the past six
weeks, has been quite ill. It is
gratifying to note that she is now

Well, the legislature made very
little change n the road law. after
all our writing and speaking last
summer. I am truly sorry that
Representative Aull failed to get
his road bill through. I think.
along with many others. that it was
one of the best solutions of the
good roads problem ever present
ed. But it takes time for every
thing. Radical changes can not be
made in a day. The change mak
ing it rptional for each county to
decide as to the number of days and
to fix the commutation tax-not
to exceed six days' labor and S3.oo
commutation tax-was a very
much needed change in the law. for
what may suit some counties does
not suit others.

Mr. John F. Eckburg, a good
old servant of the Lutheran church.
who was verv familiarly known
throughout the Newberry Lutheran
conference. died at the home of his
son. Charles. in Saluda county, on
the n;th of February. Mr. Eck
burg had been in lingering health
for several months and his son
had carried him to his home, just
six weeks previous to his death, to
care for him. WXith other compli
cations, heart failure finally
brought on the end. I haven't any
record of his age. but suppose that
his pilgrimmage on earth was fuilly

years and ten. The deceased was
a member of St. Phillips church
and was always faithful to dlutv.
