A LESSON FROM FrANCE.
Continually we are going to the old
world for lessons in fashions in pol
iey as well as in clothes.
Pertinent is a report from Paris
following the slow recession of the
It is to the effect that the bridges
along that boiling body of water
have, one and all, resisted the impact
of the flood, standing immovable, re
gardless of the force and persistence
of the creeping waters.
French engineers do not build for
a day. .
They build, as nearly as possible,
for all time.
Like the ancient Romans with the
.famous Appian Way, they bear . in
mind those that come after and con
stenet for them as well as for the
This lesson we have yet to learn
in its eventual significance and ap
plication in America.
The more sensible of us refuse to
,buy shoddy clothes, seeing in them a
But until recently the most senB

To-day we-begin to think of those

This is a geod lesson, but like all
good lessons it is a mighty hard one
to impress upon those who most need
to learn it and who would receive the
mst benefit from it. Every year
we see where county after county
has to make special provision to re
place bridges washed away by high
water. Of course, if they had been
built as they should ther'e would
have been no occasion fo: such leg
islation, or the extraoreinary ex-'
penditure of 'money. Ard the high
waters. we have in this country are
scarcely April showei-s compared to
the floods they have had in France
recently yet "the bridges along that
boiling, body of water have, one and
al resisted the impact of the flood,
stnding immovable, regardless of
'the force of the creeping waters.''
It is econoiny to build such struc
tLures. It costs a .little more in the
beginning but the satisfaetion of
*knowing the strength of the strue
tLures regard.less of other considera
tions repays the outlay -fourfold.
The same is true of the building
of publie roads .and streets and1
sidewaits even though you leave some
of the cost to your children.
Let us learn this lesson from France
and learn it well.
The legisla.turs in 1909 levied a tax
- of five and one' quarter mills to meet
the. current expenses of the State
government. This yar it is said it
* ~ will take an addit,onal one-half mill
and then the State will have to bor
row probably $100,000 to $150,000
-more than last year. This is the
biggest levy since 1876 an~d the tax
able property is increasing each year.
Sen ator. Joe Bailey will accept the
-invitation from the South Carolina
legislature to enlighten that body om
tihe income tax amendment to the
'United States constitution.
Mr. T. B. Fraser, a member of the.
legislature from Sumter, in writing
an article for the Sumter Item, giv-.
ing his reasons for not devolving the
duties of the office of master uppn
the clerk of court or some other offi
cial, among other things, says: "The
proposition to devolve the duties of
the office on another office is, in my
judgment, forbidden by the constitu
tion and I am sworn to obey that in
strument. That idea is therefore
That is high ground and proper
ground for every good citizen to
take. .Uphold the constitution he is

THE EDITOR'S CHANCE.
It is so rare that the editor of a
country -newspaper has a chance that
even the suggestion of one appeals
to us. It is pleasant to print and to
read anything that suggests he migat
be given credit for something. There
are many people who think the coun
try editor should pitch into any and
everything that they think needs eoi
rection and if he fails to do what
they think he should do then taey are
ready to jump on him.. And when
he does what these kickers suggest
then of course he must bear the cen
sure which is sure to come.
We have never complained only at
our own lack of good sense and have
borne our share of the 'eussing. And
it has been a pleasure to us to hear
of it when we feel that it was be
stowed for something we had done or
said that we knew was for the good
of the community. The ma i who
moves along without striking some
rough places must :be a regative
force. He does not amount to mueh.
He may be a good fellow but he nev
er does much to benefit his fellow-.
man. The man who does things in
this world may expect to find oppo
sition and many times from those
whc ar@ the beneficiaries of his ef
But this i? ?9gmewht rift the sub
jeet. W@ want to pzint 4 'itle poem
we r.ead some time ago which was
d4ited to the Orand, Rapids Press
giving a slight insight into the coun
try editor's life. It follows:
The editor sat in his oikee c4al,
Rubbing his pate all void af hair,
Reading his paper with listless air,
Scanning a want ad appearing there.
A want ad that read like this:
"Wanted-A man who will work all
And work all night at a small boy's
One who is tranquil amid the fray,
Patient and humble -in every way
When aniything goes ams.
"Must have a broad and a learned
Milst bear the troubles of all man
Must smile and like it when~ he's
Must spend his life in a ceaseless
And then be laid on the shelf."
The' edit,or said: "That looks good
Compared to my job, it's a snap,"
"Right here is a chance to be glad
And he sighed as lhe turned the sanc
"I'll get that job myself."
The only reward the country edi
tor gets is the consciousness of hav
ing 'done those things he believes to
be for the best of the community ir.
which his life is spent. He may ex
pect to be abused and maligned and
mainly by those for whom he has
done the most and sacrificed the most.
The recent rains have demonstra
ted the advantages of paved side
walks and at the same time senpha
sized the absolute necessity of
~building some street crossings.
Mr. S. M. Duncan, special agent
for this county for the farmers co
operati1ve and demonstration work,
publishes an important notice in an
other column of this paper.
There is no doubt that this work
of the Federal government has done
a great deal- to stimulate an interesti
in improved farm work and cultiva
tion, and it should be an easy matter
to raise a suffieient sum to purchase
the seed. This might be a good work
for the chamber of commerce to talip
