BUILD THE ROAD.
Nothing has had more to do with
bringing about the present pros
perity of the country than the build
ing of good roads. That Lexington
county is forging to the front in this
particular is most gratifying. Great
progress has been made on the roads
of this county duiring the past twelve
months. When the chain gang com
pletes the Augasta road between
Lexington and Leesville the people
will have a road running across the
county to the capital of the State.
-This road will compare most favor
ably with any road in the State and
will be a credit to the county. But
there are other good roads in the
county that axe a pride to the peo
ple. Within a few.weeks the chain
gang will begin work on the roads of
lower Fork, continuing to the New-.
berry ,ounty line. This will give the
people of that section a road to be
proud of, running aeross from the
Richland to the Newberry line. This
is as it should be. The supervisor 4
intends giving every section the ben
efit of the chain gang, but it is a
physical impossibility to work all the
roads at the same time. -Lexington
We are glad to know that the su
pervisor of Lexington county is go
ing to build a road from Richland to
-the Newberry line. We hope that

road which has been adopted as the
capital highway from Columbia to
Greenville. As already stated, this
road has b,..a built from Laurens to
Greenville and the Laurens super- I
visor is going to build from Laurens
to tie Newberry line and now it is
stated that the Lexington end is to
We hope that the county supervis
or of Newberry will realize the im
portance of the connecting link
from the Lexington line to the Lan
ransdlid.. We understand.that a
oumittee -from the- ehamuber of com
me.rce will be appodted to cooperate
* with the suxpervisor in putting this
road in first class condition. From)
New,berry to Einards, with one or
two exceptions, the road could be
made good with very little expendi
ture of labor and money. The worst
place on, the road is at Gum Spring1
branach and it is probable that the
road will have to be relocated sad a
bridge built at this place.
From Newberry to Prosperity the
road should be relocated so as not
to cross the railroad so of ten. Super-2
visor Feagle stated sometime ago that
he was going to take the chain gang
and build this road between Pros
perity and Newberry and we hope:
that he will carry this intention out.
It woud 'be a great thing for this
section to have a first class highway
from the espital of the State to.
Greenville, and when the road from
.harIeston to Columbia is completed;
end the road from Augusta to Char
lotte via Columnbia is completed, we
will have two highways ruiniug diag-.
onally across the State intereseotinig
at the capital..
,This will give owners of automo
biles an opportunity to travel with
some pleasure and we had just as
well recognize the fact that the au
totmobile is here to stay and we
should remember that a road that is
good for the automobile is equally
good for a buggy, or a wagon, or a
In this effort to have the road]
from the Lauarens line to the Lexing
ton line put, in good condition, there
should :be cooperation and united ef
fort on the part of the automo'bile
owners of this county. We believe
that the people -who live along this
road will also cooperate and assist
in making it one of the best roads
in the State.
We would call attention to an act
passed by the recent legislature, a
copy of which is printed in this pa
