Dr. G. A. Setulr Urges 1a Change i1
Our System of County Govern
ment;r Giving His Reasons.
Editor Te Herald and News:
Baying Tead your editorial in Fri
Iy's i nO the ennial condi
ti . of the county,) with your per
mission, L .ill propose some meas
ares that -believe will b&enefidia
-to the couity.
I think. the preseAt county govern
mnt has been thoroughly .tried an
proved a failure.~ Would it -not b
wise to pause and try some othe
plan to run the county government
have in a former communication) th
election of a township commissione
voters of -the township. The advan
-*age~ of this plan, the commi~
sioners would be amenable to the vot
ers and taxpayers of the to,wnshil
for the faithful performance of du
;ty. 'Anoth~er reason would be, tha
they could go over the roads in a da;
or two, and see if .the overseers o
the roads had warned the hands an
~worked the roads when ordered so t
do. Another reaSn is, after a har
ranwhen the roads and bridges ar
in bad condition they could in
short time put them in good fix, an
the public would 'not long be incomn
xc?oded so long as they are und-er th
present system, of county govern
I would further suggest, that th
chaingarig be under the supervisia
and control of the county commni
siners each one having them ' on
ionth until they get over the coun
ty. I submit that this would ,be dei
oeratiec and equitable.
As to tthe finances of the count
io one will deny that they are in
dia condition. I verily believe tha
-y would wonderfully. improve bi
-eplan e(ggested. The reason f~
this opinion is founded on the con
*ditioi -of the county before we ha
three county commioners. Th
eunty them was in debt over $20
000, and .when they went out o
office the. debt was cancelled, and
surplus in the treasury. I need ni
sk what the financial condition
nowthe .county unable to meet it
obigations and badly in debt.
I do not aceuse the supervisors C
*not doing their duty, for I bel.ieve i
imposible for one man to discharg
t-he duties of t.he office. I would r*
spectfully ask, is there one busine
man in the .county who has eleve
farms, one in each township, wh
would think of employing one man t
supervise all of his farm. I sul
mit that the duties of the supervi
or are much greater than his woul'
be I know 6f no official in the Stal
'whose duties are so great; arnd, ther
*fore, let him ,be ever so faithful an
energetie, he cannot perform the di
ties incumbent upon him.

AN ENJOYABLE OCCASION.
Christmas ire* at West End Baptist
unurca.-'iie Unilaren Aade
One of the most enjoyable, enter
tainments of the season was the
Ohristmas tree at the West End Bap
tist church on Thursday evening,
Dec. 23. There were songs, recita
tions, and- dialogues. The exercises
began promptly at 7 o'clock. The
charoh which was filled to its capac
ity, was beautifully decorated with
evergreons and the tree was loaded
with preseats and was beautifully
deeurated and brilliantly lighted with
eiectric -lights. At the rear of the
pulpit was a -himney built of candy
boxes, which imitated brick, which
was tilled with candy, and on, both
sides of the chimney were cloth sacks
of varied ielors filled with fruit.
These were banked up and presented
a beautiful appearance.
At the conclusion -of the exercises
Santa (laus came through. the fire
place of the chimney, and pleased the
childwen, who were. delighted to see
. When the children' got quiet J. Y.
Jones, superintendent of the school,
came forward and told the children
that he- knew 'that they were,glaid, to
see this part of the program and he
had the uthers to come forward and
Idistribute- the fruit, candy, -ad pres
jents to the school and cougtegation.
