ng the scouts on to Greenville.
In a dispatch received from Colum
ia by The Herald and News yester

rs of the party were sofheduled to

a large number of Greenwood cars,
who will escort thenm into Greenwood.
At Greenwood they will be met by
ars from Greenville, which will act
as pilots all t.he way to the mountain
The route chosen from Newberry to
Greenwood is via Mr. T. M. Neel 's
place to Bush river, and up by Zion
church and Williams store, across the
railroad bridge above Chappells, and
on by Dyson and Ninety Six. By
this route Greenwood is just a little
over forty miles from Newberry.
The Record's scout cars have met
with a cordial reception t,hroughout
South Carolina. wherever they have
been. They a.re engaged in a great
work-arousing an ent'husiasm in fav
or of good roads. They are seeking
a route for a good highway from Co
humbia, t-he capital of the State, to
various county seats~ throughout
the State. The plan is feasible. and
withi the co-operation of the various
centies a great deal can be accom
pnihed Those counties whieb are ae
tuated by t.be spirit of progressive
ness which is necessary to keep up
with the march of progress in this age
will lend their hearty co-operation.
Those that are not imbued with this
spirit, will, of necessity, fall behind
along all lines of progress.
That town is sorelv afflicted which
numbers among its citizens those who
are afraid to lend their help to ain en
terprise of this kind because possibly
the Record or some other newspaper
will get some advertising out of it.
People of this kind make a town mor
ally unhealthy. They make a town
physieally sick. The Columbia Rec
ord is going to get some advertising
out of the venture. If it did not. it
could not accomplish anything to
wards the purpose which it has in
view. But shall a town hang back
and refuse to lend its hearty co-oper
ation to an enterprise of this kind.
which is bound to help every town af
feeted. simply because it is going to
help somebody else?
It is to be hoped that Newberry
will do her full part in aid of this
movement. and with the co-operation
of t'he county authorities Newberry
can easily put the road from the court
house to the Lexington line, and the
road from the court house to the
Greenwood line in good and perma
nent shape. thu.s connecting with the
good roads of the other counties and
giving a good highway from Colum
bia on to Greenville. And Newberry
can do the same thing as to the road
from here to Laurens. Surely the
county needs one good. permanent
road. Of course, there will be those
who will kick because the work does
not start at their front door. Some
body down in No. 10, for instance,
will want to know what good a per
manent highway from Newberry to
Prosperity will do him if there is a
mud hole in front of his door, which
he himself could fix by throwing a
load of dirt in the hole. and fix it in
less time than it takes him to tell
how heavily he is burdened with tax
T'he good roads movement has come.
and the county which does not keep
up with the movement is as certain
to be left behind as if it were alreadv
in th4 rear.
What Newberry wants to do is to
get together and help this movement
along. A number of Newberry's cit
izens are taking a great interest in it,
and every citizen ought to.

ADDRESS BY PROF. BARROW.
Interesting and Instructive Address
to Farmers on Saturday.-Farm
A fairly good4 auLldience assembled
111 tho coti house iast Saturday to
1hear an ai ildrtess of Prof. ). N. Bar
row. lirector of the agricuiltural de
partment of Gemson College.
Prof. Barrow was int-roduced by
1.Mr. R. T. C. Huntcr, a member of
th- executive committee of the Coun
tv Farmers' union. After expressing
his. pleasure in appearing before an
audience of Newberry county farm
ers. who always seemed desirous to
hear something for tl.-ir good and
by their farm work displayed good
agricultural knowledge. Prof. Barrow
said the great object of every farmer
should Na to increase the ea.rning po'
er of his soil; the soil is the farmers'
bank. and his ability to draw on his
deposits in *hat bank will increase as
he exercises sound judgment and in
telligence in depositing in that soil
that which will enrich it and make it
The speaker explained at length the
effects of certain elements in our soils,
,how those elements could be utilized
and made to respond to the industry
and intelligence of the farmer. The
legumes and vegetable matter are the
chief ways by which one may enrich
!his soil. One of the surest and most
effective fertilizers for our worn-out
soils is barnyard and stable. manures
home-made manures. He rave some
instances' of practical experiments
along this line showing the great bene
fits resulting from a use of home-made
manures. In a three-year rotation of
crops. cotton, corn and oats, the
vield of each was made to almost dou
ble itself, in comparison with plots
where no such manures were used.
At the conclusion of his interesting
and instructive address, which was
highly enjoyed. a unanimous vote of
thanks was given Prof. Barrow.
He will open his farm demonstra
tion school here in Newberry com
mencing on Monday, August 2nd, and
everybody, whether farmer or not, is
cordially invited to attend his lec
tures and demonstrations. These dem
onstrations will be practical, and be
ing entirely informa-l in their explana
tions will be of great benefit to all
who are fortunate enough to attend.
A full turn-out to all these meetings
is earnestly urged.
To the Memory of the Late Lamented
Judge Joshua H. Hudson.
FAs a tribute to the distinguished
services of the late Judge J. H. Hud
son, representatives of the Newberry
Bar. a committee from the Drayton
Rutherford Ohapter, U. D. C., and the

N. and L. train on Friday afternoon
from CGreenville, hearing t'he remains
of Judge Hudson, and Major J. F. J.
Cald,well, chairman of the Newberry
Bar Association, presented two
wreaths of beautiful flowers for the
ladies of the U. D. 'C. chapters men
tioned above. The conductor was
kind enough to hold the t rain in onlder
that the prtesentation might be made,
and members of Judge Hudson 's fam
ily on thae train came out on thie plat
form to seu-re the wreaths.
In presenting the wreaths Major
Qaldwell spoke beautifully of Judge
Hudson, as follows:
"By request of the Drayton Ruth
erford Chapter of the United Daugh
ters of the Confederacy, and also of
Calvin Crozier Chapter, of t:be same
organization, I hand you these
wreaths, a.s a tribute of the women of
Newbewry to the gallant and efficient
soldier, whose mortal part you are
now carrying to its last earthly rest
ing place. As acting commander of
James D. Nance Camp of United Con
federate Veterans, and as chairman of
the Newberry Ba-r Association. I feel
authorized to add that the survivors
of the War of Secession join in this
recognition of the distinguished sol
dier, and I venture to say that 'de
spite our differneces concerning the
government of the State of late years,
all fair-minded persons will agree that
here is the body of a brave, intelligent
and faithful soldier, an able and
learned jurist, and a vigorous, fear
less and pure patriot.''

In Interest of School Library.-Good
by Mr. Holloway.
As previously announced in the pa
pers a pienic was given by the good
people of the St. Paul's community
last Friday in the interest of securing
a library for the school under the
terms and .conditions of the Aull Li
brary Act passed by the legislature
some years ago.
Despite the showers which kept
sours from attending there was a
goodly number present to help along
the good cause. Prof. Boland is the
principal of the school and is work
ing hard to bring it to the front rank
as one of t.he best schools of the coun
.Mr. Boland acted as master of cere
monies and introduced Mr. J. B.
o 'Nea.ll Holloway, who explained the
practical workings of the library act
as applied to securing libraries for
our countVry schools. He also spoke
strongly of the beneficent results that
would inevitably flow from the placing
of a library in the school.
Thbe address of Mr. Hollowar was
greatly enjoyed by the people who
were present and was much appreci
ated. It was a most excellent talk
and very appropriate to the occasion.
It was plain, practical and put the
advantages of a libcrary before the
pople in such a way that there .seems
little doubt now that a library will
be installed in this school.
