THE RECORD'S SCOUTS.
Good Roads Cars Will Reach New

and Spend Night Here.
The Herald and News yesterday
afternoon received a message from
Mr. Jans A. Hoyt. editor and man
aer Of the Columbia Record, saying
that the good roads scout cars of the
Recoid would come to Newberry on
Monday afternoon and spend Monday
night in Newberry.
Newberry is to be congratulated
upon the decision of th-e party to
spend the night here, thus giving the
people of Newberry an opportuity
better to welcome them, and to have
them in Newberry longer.
As was stated in the last issue of
're Herald and News. a number of
Newberrv cars will meet the good
roads scouts at Little Mountain. Ac
companying the Newberry cars will
also probably be several cars from
Prosperity. The Herald and News has
a letter from Dr. J. I. Bedenbaugh,
of Prosperity, stating that he hopes
to be able to accompany the party in
his machine to Little Mountain,. and
other Prosperity automobiles. includ
ing that of Dr. J. J. Dominick, will
no doubt be numbered among those
going to Little Mountain to extend
Newherry eounty's welcome and to
bring the ears on to Prosperity and
A stop will be made at Prosperity,
where a reception will be tendered the
party. and the ears will then proceed
to Newberry. where a reception will
be tendered them. and where they will
spend the night. Next morning they
will pioceedI on their way to Green
.ille. via Greenwood.
The scout cars are expected to

ster, which led the Journal-Herald
cars from Greenwood to Newberry.
Capt. Langford's car. driven by Capt.
Langford himself, will represent The
Herald and News.
A car from the Forde Mortor Co.
It was expected that this car would
be driven by Mr. W. C. Waldrop, who
drove Capt. Langfo'rd 's car in the
lead piloting the Journal-Herald cars
from Greenwood to Newberry, and
who on that trip proved himself one
of the best drivers in the South, and
it is still hoped that he may be able
to do so, bu-t he was confined to his
bed wit'h sickness yesterday, and he
may not be able to go out on the trip.
Mr. Forde, howevei. of the Forde
Mortor Co.. a driver who has proved
himself an expert on many occasions

matter of driving and piloting.

A cordial reception will be tendered
the members of the party while they
are in Newberry, and the co-opera

dsired in the matter. It is probable
that a number of Coluimbia automo

Newberry County a Net-Work of Tel
ephone Wires, Putting Her Peo
ple in Close Touch.
The three things which in the past
decade have contributed most to the
inprovement of conditions in illw ru
ral and faruie-s' liiie. In Tie lie:
fore. to the piog:ess of the whole
South, are the building of better
roads, rural free mail delivery, and
The telephone long since became an
almost absolute necessity in the towns
and cities, and it is fast becoming a
necessity in the rural districts.
Newberry county today has a net
work of telephone lines. There is
hardly a section of t.he county that is
not in telephonic communication with
the city ot Newberry and with every
othe,r section of the county. Pros
perity has an exchange which has ex
perienced a remarkable growth with
in the past year. Connected with this
exchange by a trunk line is the Po
maria exchange. and a number of ru
ral and farmbrs' lines. In The Her
ald and News some time agr -tention
was palled to the remarkable increase
in the number of telephones connect
ed with the Little Mountain exchange.
There are today more than one huin
dred stations on the Little M_1umntainl
.iles. wit:h the central at Little Moun
t'lli, and the Little Mountain central
has a trunk line which connects it
wit i the central at Chapin, with a
large number of phones. Little Moun
tain. of course. has connection with
the Newberry exchange.
It is gratifying to note this increase
in the number of telephone lines in
t:he county. It is a sign of healthy
growth and of .remarkable progress
along material lines and intellectual
lines, as well. The telephone is not
only a great asset in business, but it is
an educator. as well. It keeps people
in touch with one another. It puts a
ct untry home in constant touch with
the city. It keeps the city in constant
touch with the country, its backbone,
as it were. And not only that, but'
the telep.hone in the rural districts is
one of the most complete protections
which could be devised. A home with
a telephone, however isolated in the
days gone by. is no longer isolated.
Danger from sickness or from any
other cause no longer has the same
terror. Relief may be sumimon~d in
A representative of The Herald and
News asked Manager J. E. Robinson,
Jr., of tihe Newberry exchange of the
Sout!hern Bell, for the figu'res showing
the number of phones in the county
in .toucih with the Newber'ry exchange.
and also for some facts in regard to
the increase in the number of phones
during the past year. The increase
under the management of Manager
Rocbinson has been phenomenal. This
remarkable increase has been brough-t
about from a number of causes. I
the first place, the Southern.Bell fur
nishes a service which is unexcelled
by any common carrier of its kind in
the world. In addition to this, the
vice-president and general manager of
the company, Mr. J. Epps Brown, of
Atlanta, is a native of Newberry,
having been born and reared here, and
Newberry county feels somewhat as
if the Southern Bell were a Newber
ryv enterprise. .And, in addition to.
this. t:he local manager. Mr. J. E.
Robinson, J-r., is a telephone man
who knows how to do things, and who:
The Newberry Exchange.
The following figures show the num
ber of phones connected direefly with
the Newberry exchange:
City .... .... .... .... .....284

Farmers' line basis .... .... ...33
Dead Fall Farmers' exchange .. 13
Coleman's exchange .. ........22
The distinction between rural
phones and phones on the farmers'
line basis, in the~ above tabulation, is
that the Southern Bell furnishes the
phones on the lines denominated as
rural, while on the farmers' line basis
the~ phones are furnished by the stock
holders of the line, or the subscrib

the Prosprity exchange:

These figures as to the Prosperity
cange, ompared with the figures
as to the same exchange for a year
ago, will give an idea of the remark
able increase of the phone service in
Newberry county. The Prosperity ex
liange is one of the besi and most
flourishing, comparatively, in the
whole system of the Southern Bell.
This growth is a credit to the people
of Prosperity and the surrounding
communities, and is very gratifying
to the Southern Bell people.
The Little Mountain Exchange.
As stated above. The Herald and
News some time ago gave the figures
showing the remarkable increase in
the number of stations connected with
the Little Mountain exchange, which,
,as stated, is also connected direetv
by trunK line with the Chapin ex
change. This gives the county an ad
ditional more than one hundred
phones in the Little Mountain see
ion, in addition to the connections
on the Chapin switch board, in Lex
New Lines Being Constructed.
The Herald and News has frequent
ly during the past several months
called attention to the new lines
which have been built. Manager
Robin-son stated yesterday that the
Southern Bell had contraets for and
had completed its work on two lines
running out the lower steel bridge
road. which will conneet fourteen
stations. The subscribers have almost
romplete(d their part of the work. and
they will conneet within a short time,
as soon as tie erops are laid by.
"Also.'' said Manager Robinson,
'"as soon as the grass is out of the
cotton there is no doubt about my
connectig two, and most probably
three, lines. two to extend out the
lower steel bridge road into Saluda
county. and one of these to be about
thirteen miles long."
The development of the Newberry
exchange has far exceeded Manager
Robinson's expectations. and lie ex
pects to accomplish a great deal more
as soon as the farmers 'have time to
talk to him. There is now no road
leading into Prosperity that is not
lined with telephone poles.
All of the thirty-five farmers' line
stations connected with the Prosper
ity exchange have been connected
since last September, and ten of the
telephone stations in the town. have
been installed since that time.
The Pomaria Telephone exchange
has also been connected since that
time. and has now grown to fifty
three stations, and it is expected that
it will reach seventy-five this fail.
The total increase in stations since
September 1 is 98.
Tflhis is a story of remarkable
progress, and the development is
something of which the coun.ty and
Manager Robinson and the Southern
Bell have a right to be proud.
