C., C. & 0. ROAD.
The Herald and News is satisfied
that the people of Newberry are will
ing and anxious to do anything and
everything in their power to induce
the builders of the C., C. & 0. road
to go via Newberry in the extension
of their line from Spartanburg to the
If in going to the coast it is decided
to go via Columbia, as it probably
:will be. it seems to us that it would
not require a great deal of induce
mert for the road to come via New
bery. To go down the Broad river
is only a few miles shorter than to
come by Newberry and the building
of the road by that route as well as
the maintenance would be consider
ably more and in addition to that
there is nothing from Union to -Co
lumbia that would be any inducement
for the building of the railroad.
The special committee from the
chamber of commerce hopes to keep
in touch with the -authorities and will
do anything in its power to induce
the aqthorities to come this way, and
it is necessary to have the active and
hearty cooperation of all the interests
in the city.
As Mr. Wright suggests we "should
lose no time in arranging some syste
matic work by which we will be en
abled to show the authorities the ad
vantage of coming by this important
Every business interest in Newber
ry should get together and throw its
interest towards inducing the road; to
come this way, and when we get the
officials down here everybody must be
in position to tell of the advantages
-We feel that this is one thing on
whieh we can have the united support
of all the people of this community.
In next Tuesday's paper we will
print a short story written by Col.
D. A. Dickert entitled "A Wild Ride
on the Saltkahatchie.''
We will print from time to time
regularly through the next several
mo6nths short reminiscences written
especially for The Herald and lNews
by Col. Dickert,'
Everybody should imbibe the com
mencement spirit this week and en
joy the happy occasion with the
young graduates. It will come to them
but once. They will soon pass into
the stern affairs of life not to pass
this way again. Let us all contribute
our part + ,make this a happy occa
.sion for i em.
THE RUTS IN THE ROADS.
,There is a rut in the public road be
tween Piercetown and Piedmont. It
is not more than six inches deep and
twelve inches wide. It was caused
by the water collecting on the west
side of the road and running across
to seek a lower level on the east
It could be repaired at a cost of
fifty or seventy-five cents, but al
~though it has been there for weeks
it has not been repaired and it has
caused several accidents which have
eost a good many dollars.
The other day a 1lareg automobile
came along this road at a good rate
of speed. It dropped into this rut
and one of the large springs on the
machine was broken. The owner of
the inachine had to pay $25 for a
A couple of weeks ago an Anderson
man drove his automobile into the
same rut and the jar broke the glass
wind shield on his automnobile. A new
one cost him $5.
A few days afterward a lady was
driving along this road in a buggy.
The front wheels of her vehicle
dropped into the rut and the single
tree snapped. She had to get out,
-unhitelb. the horse and wa'lk to a farm
house nearly a mile a away to get as
sistance., A new single tree will cost
'Here ai-e three accidents, whi6h
have cost more than thirty dollars,
-whiceh have been caused by this one
'rut in one road. The same rut may
have eaused other acciden ts that we
do not know of. And this rut, mind
you, could have been repaired at a
os of fify or seventy-five cents;

sure the figures would he startdlig if

Ti i 4of co~urse n14ot o especiali
I ere t Io the people 4f Newberry
County, but the same lesson may be
,implessed here that was sought to be
impressed in Anderson by the re
counting of these several accidents
eaused by this rut in the road. There
are ruts in the roads in this county
which are causing accidents and cost
ing the people who use the roads ]
more money every day than it would f
cost to fix the ruts. The trouble is I
that there are so many ruts and in-j
stead of t1he people who are close to
them fixing them they are counting on
the chaingang doing it.
Of course what we ought to do is t
to get to work and make some real
good roads and as far as possible re- I
move all the ruts. There are ruts in t,
all the roads in this county which I
are levying the heaviest tax the peo
ple of this county are paying, but it
is like the tariff, a sort of indirect t
tax, and yet a diret tax and a heavy n
one, but it does not come immediately a
.out of their pockets in dollars and
.cents, but it comes all the same ini the
wear of vehieles and stock and the t,
loss of time. The best investment the t
people could make would be to put P
some money in the filling of the ruts a
in the roads. e
If you can't get permanent roads, t
fill the rits. The ruts are costing a p
lot of money to the people who travel
the roads. They cost you money
whether you see it in the breaking
of your buggy or your wagon or not. e
Don't forget that the ruts in the y
roads are levying on you the heaviest h
tax that you are paying today and
many of you don't know it.

To The Idler: I notice that yout
have taken a stroll in Boundary street a
and have noted what permanent im
-proveemnt had been started by the 0
city and that it had been left half I
finisihed. I am sure that the city in
tends to finish this work some time.
but you ar.e right that it is a great I
waste of time and money to go about
starting and then leaving a piece of 10
work like this. As a resident in 0
Boundary street I wanted to say to g
you that we all appreciate your inter- n

Mr. Wieker and his force will get t
there soon, but vou must remember
that the streets in this eity are some-t
what like unto the public roads in dl
this county, there is scarcely any ends
to them and those of us who live in a
other streets want some work done I
.too. And the city council is doing its a
very level best to please all of us
and we are all very un-reasonable at
the same time. But all things come
