AN AUTOMOBILE TRIP INTO
In Capt. W. S. Langford's hand
some Ford Roadster the editor left
Newberry on Sunday morning for a
trip to our home in Greenwood coun
ty with Capt. Langford at the steer
ing wheel. The air was pleasant and
bracing and the little roadster was on
her mettle and clipped 'em at from
ten to fift-.ii miles an hour with ease
and giace. We went up the Belfast
road as far as Longshore's store and
then up t-he Chappells road via Mr.
J. S. D iniek's and around by the
Wells place and down by the Boaz
man place and out by Mr. G. T. Reid's
to the railroad bridge over Saluda.
The road from Newberry to Long
shore's is not in as good condition D
it was some weeks ago when we came
with the Journal-Herald ears to New
berry. There are many holes that need
attention and from Longshore's to
Mr. Dominick's the road is terribly
bad most all the w;. At Little River
it took a good car to come through.
Tihe road from Mr. R. S. Boazman's
to the Saluda river seems to- be trav
eled but little and is in worse condi
tion than it was twenty-five years ago.
In fact it has the appearance of not
having had any ,work at all for the
past quarter of a century, but we went
through without any trouble. At the
railroad bridge is a place that needs
attention. We have the promise that
the mudhole immediately under t-he
railroad will be worked by some of
-the citizens on the Greenwood side.
After you strike Greenwood there
is evidence of recent work on the
Toads and even the hill up from. the
river is in good condition and after.L
you reach the top of the hill the roads
are in good condition as far as we
went in Greenwood county. We tray-d
eled the road as far as Ninety Six
creek three and a half miles from d
.Ninety Six. We know Vhe road from
there to Greenwood is a fine road. d
We made the trip from Newberry h
to Mr. J. L. Aull 's, a -distance of
28 4-10 miles by the route traveled, in
two hours and forty-five minutes a
even with the roads we had to en- h<
Returning we came by the railroad '
bridge and -through what we were told ke
is a public road via the Simpkins' te
place into the ChappeIls road right at
Chappells. Why any one would send el
us by t'his road it is hard to tefl for hc
the supervisor was not with us that dr
he might see the condition of some
roads that are called public highways- Ibh
Now sending us around by Islan .1 y
Ford was airight 'because it gave t.he ho
supervisor opportunity to inspect the
roads which 'he might not have hah l
during his term of office. This road -tic
by the Simpkins' place is almost im- in
passable. The road from Chappells ~a
back to Newberry by .Cross Roads p
church, the Williams place and the ed~
Long Bridge is in good condition and i
about as good road as you will,find in-b
Newberry. If at Dr. Holloway 's we. tio
had turned to the right going and Ge
tihen to the left at the school house tio
and taken t,hat route to the river we an
would have discovered probably the to
best average road leading from New- s'tr
berry to the Greenwood county line. -Br<
The crops seem to be in fairly good an!
condition and are looking well. The tas
cotton has plenty of weed and ispr
growing very rapidly and the farmers as
are greatly encouraged in the last Br!
few days over the prospect. The corn wil
generally is fine. Mr. Dick Neel has ion
some corn just outside the city that eve
is the best by far that we shave seen. stic
It is better, we believe, than that of his
Mr. E. R. Hipp, about which 'we spoke raid4
some time ago. Mr. Neel also has -T
some fine cotton. Mr. J. H. Chappell t-hir
has some cotton that ought to yield in
rmre than a bale to the acre and that
~s a p.rei: good yield. lHe has somne
looking well. Henry Fe.llers has some E

several stops on the return trip and

The roads in this county are not
receiving the attention they should
have. Some of them have not been
worked in years and nearly all of
them are scarcely wide enough for
one track, and many of them look
like paths that are simply marked out.
The people have quit working them
altogether and t1he chain gang scat
ters around and do.es not accomplish
much. It is a great pity we cannot
get our people more aroused to the
importance of road improvement. We
have preached the doctrine of .;ood
roads for many years, but it takes
more than preaching to get any roads.
In fact it takes money and muscle. In
Greenwood county practically all of
the road working is done by the chain
gang but it is done systematically.
The gang -is divided into two or more
squads and each has several mules, a
serape and probably some otiher nec
essary implements for road working,
and all the main roads leading from
the county seat are working out to
the county line and they are gone over I
probably twice a year and are put in
good condition, being raised in the
middle and drained well with ditches
on either sids. Very little permanent
work is done in this way but the roads
are at least kept in fairly good con
dition all the year. ,The hands are
aot warned out but so far as we have 6
)bserved the roads are worked with a
'he chain gang. That is better t'han
eeping the chain gang working on
)ridges and running from place to
Aace to fix little crossways.
We just as well conclude if we are
ver to have any roads in this county
we have got to put up the money and
ay for them and it is no use to ta}k
ood roads .unless we are willing to
We hope, however, for a brighter
ay in the matter of better roads. It

If the road from here to Ohappells ~

It seems that the Georgia prohibi- th
nists were a little too intemperate for
the matter of seeking pledges from bal
adid.ates in the gubernatorial cam- pris

.Brown promise that if he should tors
elected he would veto any legisla- in:

it is called. Some of the Geri con<

they secured -the promise from Gov. at f
