ADDITIONAL MAIL SERVICE.
We take the liberty of printing the
following lelter from Congressman
Aiken. It shows how closely he is
watching all the interests of every
part of his district and that he is en
x1eavoring at all times to give the peo
ple better service.
The Herald and News hos from
time to time since the present sched
ule was put on urged the establish
ment of postal elerks on the midday
trains, 18 and 19, between Columbia
In faet the Greenville meeting, at
which these trains were agreed upon,
promised to look after this matter
and urge the additional mail service.
Now it seems that it is up to the rail
road to furnish the car space. We
call Superintendent Simpson's at
tention to this fact. This is a matter
that touches the districts represent
ed by Messrs. A. F. Lever and J. T.
Johnson as well as Mr. Aiken.
We would suggest that this is a
proper subject to attract the atten
tion of the proper committee from
our chamber of commerce, or the
president or secretary, and that it
should be taken up officially with the
railroad and urge the importance of
providing space. We now have the
best and most convenient schedules
we have ever had and postal clerks
on Nos. 18 and 19 would give us ex
ceptionally fine mail service.
The following is the letter from
Abbeville, S. C., Sept. 14, 1907.
My Dear Col.:
Yesterday I read with interest
your article concerning mails on
trains 18 ond 19 on the Columbia and
Greenville road. As soon as those
trains were put on I called at 'he
post office depirtment and made an
earnest appeal of the second assis
tant postmaster general for postal
elerks on them and was promised
that if the trains were made perma
nent that clerks would be put on if
posoible. Several times since then I
have urged upon the management of
the Southern road to keep the trains
on permanently with the promise
that if the travel justified it that
they would be kept on. I have also
kept the matter of postal clerks fresh
in the minds of the post office depart
ment people and about three weeks
ago the second assistant wrote me
that the clerks would very probably
be put on now soon, or just as soon as
available car space could be secured,
but at this time it was impossible to
secure the space. I am satisfied that
if the Southern road will furnish the
space for postal clerks that they will
soon be running on the midday trains
on the C. & G., Nos. iS and 19. Only
yesterday I wrote an urgent letter to
the second assistant in behalf of the
establishment of this postal service
and will continue the fight until the
clerks are put on. If the trains are
kept on you will spe the clerks on
them before a great while.
With kindest regards,
Yours very truly,
Col. E. H. Aull,
Newberry, S. C.
' PAVE THE SIDEWALKS.
The action of the city council in
taking steps toward having the side
walks of Greenwood paved is most
The value to the .property owners
will be more than double the cost of
putting down the paved sidewalks.
The convenience and comfort of such
paved walks is too 'well known to
need proof. All property having such
walks will lbe greatly enhanced ini
value. Other towns are doing simi
lar work and the citizens are entering
into the work with enthusiasm. In
~Greenwood the property owners, so
far as is known, are also enthusiastic
We are very fortunate that all of
these things are so. The good work
must be kept up, the enthusiasm will
need constant fanning.-Greenwood
Constant fanning is no doubt nec
essary but our trouble has been to
get the blaze started. If we could
once get the enthusiasm to assume
activity and get on it a good red glow
we do not think it would take so
much fanning. The sidewalks along
most of the business streets are pav
ed now and the work was well
done but it has never yet got started
in the other sections.
What we need is first to get some
street paving started. We understand
tat sine the proposition to pave
Caldwell street from Friend to Main p
has failed that there is probability w
that Main from Caldwell to College g<
will be paved. These two sections of di
street need paving more than any gt
other in the city and we will be glad C]
to see the work start somewhere.
Once started, if the work is properly d<
done, there will be no trouble in hav
ing it extended.
Nothing helps a town so much as b(
good streets and clean streets. We tb
need to be doing something along p
both lines. We want to see the work to

That we need to enlarge our school i

The board suggests two plans. We
are inclined to the view taken by the
board that the plan of establishing a
high school is the one for us at this
time to adopt. It will cost less and
serve' a better purpose in our school
system at this time. It will not be
long before the other plan of anoth
er building in a different section of
the city will also be a necessity.
But both plans are presented and
