A Bridge Wanted at Bouknight's

The farmers say it is -too late to do
. the early corn much good, but every
iss one seems brighter since the rain
\v. e don't hear anything new about
'ed that bridge at Bouknight's ferry.
nd Surely everyone realizes how neces
n- sary a bridge is at that place, for two
of the most important roads in the
o,- county meet there. If one could al
ier ways cross the stream, it would be
st very well; but sometimes the water is
ve too high; and fording is impracticable
Then the flat is in a very poor con
ir- dition, in charge of a careless ferry
en man. Now, at Kempson's ferry it is
ch different. The water is seldom too
high, and never so low as to prevent
at ferrying. But Bouknight's is much
-as more convenient. for the majority of
ie the farmers. who go to Newberry
g- for supplies. The farmers say i some
ly. better arrangements are not made
ve they will be compelled to go to Bates
he burg or Leesville for supplies.

up has been secured as pastor. A Sun

Where The South Excels.
News and Courier.
It is not often that the Chicag
Chronicle has a good word to say
the south or aiything southern.
I usually assumes that this part of tl
1 country is largely peopled with
white population that divides its tin
about equally between lynching n
groes and fomenting all manner
political deviltry. An admission fro
the Chronicle, therefore, "that tI
average of official morality is high
in southern cities than in northei
mur'rcipalities" is worth repeatin
The Chronicle is prepared to -g
further. "The south," it says, "ca
afford to challenge comparison in tI
matter of State legislatures alsD
and it adds. "'the scandals in tht
bodies are relatively few in the soutl
ern states, and so far as recollectic
may be relied upon there has been r
talk of venality in the choice of Un
ted States senators in the south sin<
All of which is more less true an
more or less pleasant; but there a2
indications that this section of ti
country may lose some of the r<
pute which it now has for civic virtt
and official integrity. It was not Ion
since Col. William L. Royall; of Via
ginia, was accusing Mr. Martin <
having bought his way into the senat
just as though. the latter gen'tlema
represented New York, Ohio or Mor
tana. In the same state there is
robust school-book scandal whic
threates to besmirch the fair off
cial name of more than one F. F. 'A
stateman. Down in New Orlear
they have been charging corruptio
against certain of their city affait
Iquite in the tor.e 'that. one employ
when speaking in Phrladelphia. Or
in Arkansas they hav'e had a stat
senator on trial, and right .here
South Carolina, Senator Tillman
demand that the dispensary b
"cleansed or killed" leads inevitabi
to the conclusion that everything
not as -immaculate as it once was an
should be. It is to be hoped,c
course, that none of the southeri
states will ever be as absolutely rol
ten officially as are some of thosei
the north and west, but some vig
lance will have to be employed
the good name the Chronicle 'give
us is to be retained and merited.
