Editor Herald and News:
I have just read Fourth Assistant
Postmaster General P. R. DeGraw's
letter. which says that it is nesessary
in order to complete the rural mail
service in the coun'ty, which is now
under consideration in the depart
ment, to have a complete road map
made, showbig all of the public
r10"aId and residences aloig tile line.
The postmaster has asked for this
with the understanding that it in
volve no expense to the department,
and you have directed the matter to
the supervisor And his board for their
consideration. I would say that there
is no one, who a.ppreciates the free
mail service. any more than myself,
mid I am doing everything in my
power to better the condition of the
public highways, which the car
riers have to pass over. And ever
since the service has been in opera
tion, I have advised every one living
along the lines to give it their pat
ronage and co-operation, and with the
cvenutii of some complaint of rough
road, which is now being overcome, I
venture the assertion that Newberry
county has the best mail service of
any county in the state.
Mr. Editor, how much does the free
mail service lack of being complete
in the county? We have been under
the impression that it reaches about
as far as practicable already, or at
least nine-tenths of the people are
being benefited with free delivery.
The county board will investigate the
matte-, and I dol'- intend that what
I say shall have any tendency to
block anything which might be for
the general good of the public. But,
Mr. Editor, did you think what a cost
to the county it would be to have
such a survey made? To illustrate
1i1, matter, and to give the public a
better idea of how the county is cut
up into public highways, you will
please publish the following list of
different sections of public highway,
Iv are bounded with the names
of each overseer for'each section, just
in .two townships-9 and 10. I have
;-t completed this work, which the
supervisor has hired me to do for
him, paying me out of his own salary.
Mr. Editor, after inspecting this list
please give us a proximate estimate
as to what such a survey of the whole
~coun-ty would cost. As a matter of
act, we have to take cost into con
kwst of Overseers in No. 10 Township.

Jaimles L. Fekels, tie who died
suddenly in Chicago Sunday, was one
of the very few men regarded as pro
(eges of President Cleveland. There
wias no ''tennis Cabinet'' or other
official auxiliary to the Cleveland
kginme. Nearly all of President
Cleveland's prominent official asso
eiates were prominent before Mr.
Cleveland called them to thle public
service. Tlm this respect his adminis

Kinliy or R?oosevelt, both of which
elevated many hitherto obscure men
to tihe top round of olicial promin

Mr. Eekels caie to Washington in
the early spring of 1893, and. was a
familiar boyish figure around the Ar

thoughitful, and studious, and practic
ed regular hours and habits. He met
Mr. Cleveland when the latter was
governor of New York and Mr.
Eekels was a student at the Albany
Law School. Ue knew Daniel La

seeking appointment as United
States attorney for the Northern dis
trict of Illinois. But Senator Pal

a member of the Illinois legislature,
who had voted for him. President
Cleveland was disposed to follow
Senator Palmer's recommendation.
He sent a message to Mr. Eckels that
if lie would withdraw from the race
lie would be .taken care of later. Eck
els yielded, mananimously indorsing
his opponent. This pleased Mr. Cle

to find a suitable office for Mr. Eck
