GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT.
Call Attention Again to Out Off Near
Old Town-Other Mat
The grand jury made its present
ment on Wednesday afternoon and
was discharged. They again call at
tention to the cut-off above Old Town,
and insist that something be done at
once. This is a very important matter
and should have the attention of the
railroad official.,. As stated before in
The Herald aid News, the citizens of
of that community have already -Jug
the ditch from the railroad track to
the river to carry the water from this
pond, and all that is necessary to
drain it is for the railroad to make a
cnlvert under the track. The people
of tshe community are very anxious
to have this done before the hot
weather begins, and it is very im
portant, to the health of the. com
munity that it should be done.
To Hon. F. B. Grier,
We beg to report that we have
acted on all bills submited to us by
the Solicitor and have reported them
to the Court with our findings.
On former occasions this Grand
Jury has called to the attention of
the Colirt the condition of the Cut
Off near Old Town and asked that
The Southern Railway be required to
remove tlie obistruetion placed there
by the Railroad which prevents a
proper flow of the waters. The pres
-ent condition of the Cut Off is such
thWt is menaces the health of the
commuinity and we recommend that
steps be~ taken by the proper officeials
to have the obstruction removed at
once. The Rlailway Company has ig
nor'ed thle reports of the Grand Jury
t ime and againi andit we emphasize
the imiport ance of hiaving this matter
attended to at once.
Our at teration has been called to
thle had condition of the bridge over
'rimmns Creek near' Poniaria and we
recomminend t hat thle Supervisor have
the same repaired as soon as possible.
In a former report we called at
tentioii to the fact that a telephone
post stood in the *enter of the public
Rihw *t Little Mountain andl also
%*ta post stoodl in the center or
near the center of the highway about
eight miles from Newberry, .near Ja
Itipa. These posts should not be al
lowed to remain where they now are
aind we again call the Supervisor 's
at tent ion to it and request that these
posts he removed.

the Magistrates be called to tihe Vag.
