Just last week the trip was mad<
from New York via Washington
Greensboro, Salisbury, Charlotte

It is proposed to go over two othel
routes. The one mentioned througl
the capitals and the other furthei

As stated the capital route, as i
is called. will be taken first leavinc
Atlanta next Monday morning at
Dr. 0. B. Mayer, president of th4
ehamber of commerce, has taken ul
the matter and is making efforts t<
see if these cars cannot be broughi
by Newberry. His first step was t<
get into communication with Dr. H
K. Aiken, chairman of the board oJ
trade of Laurens. Dr. Aiken,,in talk
ing over the phone said that he woul
take the matter up at once with hiz
board and a few minutes later Dr
Mayer received the following tele
gram: "Laurens auto pilots will meel
'party Greenwood Monday night. H
It was thoughit after talking the mat.
ter over that it would be better tc
bring the party,. if possible, via Laur
ens to Newberry, as the road thai
way is very much better than the di
rect route from Newberry to Green
wood via Dyson, though the distancE
is a little more.
President Mayer has appointed a
eommittee, composed of Mr. C. T
Summer, Dr. F. D. Mower, and Mr.
R. H. Wright,' to meet the party at
Laurens, if it decided to take thai
route from Greenwood to Columbia.
I A committee will also get into com
munication with the party from At.
lanta before Monday, urging the path
finders to come via Laurens and New
berry and the Forde Mortor company
will take a car to Greenwood and sev
eral representatives of the chamber of
commerce and those interested in au
tomobiles will also go to Greenwood
on Monday to meet the party on its
It is said that i.he route fromr
Newberry t.o Greenwood vis
Laurens is very good and from~
Newberry to Columbia there is a ridge
all the way and no streams to cross
until Broad river is reached, and it is
believed that we can induce the party
to come this way.
Mr. E. H. Aull was in Atlanta
about a week ago and had a pleasant
talk with Mr. J. R. Gray, managing
editor of the Atlanta Journal, who is
very much interested in the location
of these routes, and Mr. Gray sug
gested that in coming from Atlanta
to Columbia he thought they could
come via Newberry.
Mr. Aull has gotten into communi
cation with Atlanta over the phone
and will advise the party that we are
interested in their coming this way,
and that a committee from Newberry
will meet th?m in Greenwood.
To get this route located via New
berry would be a great help to us
and would be a great stimulus in the
matter of buillding good roads
While it will not be worth as much as
the securing of the C., C. &
the roads and every important road
There is no movement that has been
started in recent years that will do
as much to encourage and help the
building of good roads as this locat
ing of the automobile tracks between
the North and the South.
The Atlanta papers have gone into
the matter with much enthusiasm and
already a great impelus has been
given to road buildin?g. In Fulton
county they have put the convicts on
the roads an devery important road
leading out from Atlanta to the coun
ty line of Fulton county is already
a first class highway.
In driving over one of these roads
on a recent visit to Atlanta,. the dif
ference in the appearance of the
homes and the country generally was
very noticeable the moment you left
the Fulton county line and struck the
old highwvay which has not been im

From Newberry they went to Char

the guests of the captain of a vessel
at that port. and from whence they
sailed by the Clyde line to New York.
They intend spending about ten days
in New York city sight seeing, and

After this charming trip is ovel
they will come down to Fredericks

Fredericksburg of itself is a very
historical place, being only 30 miles
from the battlefield of Gettysburg and
12 miles from Antietam, and the place
where General Lee made his famous
address on his way into battle. It is
also the scenes of the home of Barba

heroine in one of his war poems as
the old woman who placed a United
States flag in her window when the
Confederate troops were marching
through the town. Dr. Thomas says,
'however, this cannot be authenticated,
and has very little of the semblance
of truth .to it. He says there was a
woman named Barbara Frietchie liv

that she never did what Whittier
claims she did. He says her house

Before leaving Dr. Thomas said
that the lyceum course for the college
