Mr. Z. F. Wright. president of i

visor Feagle, and .turned over to him
the papers left by Dr. Wyche.
County Supervisor Feagle is very
anxious to "have the . experimental
road built, and will at once answer
the questions propounded by te gov
ernment, and will cooperate in the
matter. It is probable that the pub
lic road from Newberry to Prosperitty
just beyond the incorporate limits
down towards Johnstone academy
will be the section of road selected
for this purpose. This will enable the
people to see what can be done with
clay and sand road, the sand -on this
section of road being very heavy. No
doubt tbe people who live along this
road will also cooperate by furnishing
teams and assisting in getting the
Supervisor Feagle has been doing
some of this class of work near Mr.
Gibson's place. There is a portion
of this road Which is very bad in wi
ter on aecount of the clay. Mr. Fea
gle has been mixing sand with this
clay, and as a result this section of
the road is as good as any part of the
road from Newberry to Gibson's.
A great deal of the road in Newber
ry .county could be built by th-e use of
sand where the road is clay and by
the use of clay where the sand beds
are heavy, and .in mos't cases the ma
terial is -right at hand. A sand and
lay r-oad is really a better road than
the :naeadam, and the bui-lding of it
is mueh cheaper.

two robbers1 as a.t first was believed,

.is indieated by the investigation of
