This Association has been doing

WORKING THE ROADS.
The Citizens Are Being Aroused to
the Importance of Improved
Rural Carrier W. G. Peterson, of.
route No. 1, states that the road oil
his .route from Newberry to Long
shores, is being put in excellent con
dition. the hands on the road and the
chain gang both .having been at work
on it to this plaet. he says that he
is very proud of his road and it is
2ow in such condition that scout cars,
automobiles. buggies, and wagons cait
travel over it with ease and comfort.
The road from Newbery to Saluda
river known as the Bouknight Ferry
road is also being worked and put in
excellent condition. The farmers who
live on this road state that they ex
pect to .have all of t;he hands liable
to road duty on the road put in their
full six days of work. The supervisor:
will follow this up with the chain
gano and have the road worked all the
way to the river. This is a very im
portant road for Newberry. and it is
gratifying to see that the people who
li,ve on It are tmking an active interest
in putting it in fine condition. It is to
their interest to do this and besides
tihlat it will give our friends on t:he
Saluda side a good road to come to
Newberry. There should be a steel
bridge built over Saluda river some
where in the neighborhood of Bouk
night Ferry that would be equi-distant
from Prosperi-ty and Newberry so that
the people of Saluda who desire to
do their nmarketing at Newberrv could
do so as easily as possible and have
the option of going to Prosperity or
coming to Newberry. In fact it would
pay the county of Newberry to pay
the entire cost of sue.h a bridge, and
it would be a great convenience to
r'. e people of Saluda county, and
those who live just on the other side
of the river constitute a community
of prouressive and successful farm
ers and their natural market is ei
ther Newberryor Prosperity, and we
should give them every convenienoe,
and comfort. and encouragement to
come and do their t.rading at these
A merchant of Newberry, who is
well informed, made a statement the
other day that almost one fourth of
the business of Newberry came from
the Saluda side, and he said further
that it was very desirable business.
The road to the steel bridge as
stated in The Herald and News some
time ago is also being worked and
the citizens who live along this road
are co-operating with the supervisor
in p)uttinig it in~ good conditon, es
pecially as far as Dead Fall.
The distance from Dead Fall to the
river is about twvo miles and the su
'ervisor will take the e4hain gang
over tihis.road and build it all the way
to the river. The Herald and News
is pleased to know that the farmers
in these sections of the county men
tioned are taking an active interest
and are now putting tihe roads in good
We would be pleased indeed to
know that some work is being done
on other high,ways leading up to the
cit. For inst-ance the road from New
berrv to Kina.rds with very little
work could be made a most excellent
igway and then tihe road from'
Newberry to Whitmire ought to be
put in good condition. If the over
seers of all the roads in the county
will get busy now and put six full
days' work in by all ofj the hands
liable to road duty'on their respective
roads, there will be a vast improve
ment in the public roads in this coun
