A TALK ON ROADS.
One of the most important reforms
needed in this State to-day is the
improvement of our public highways.
The Herald and News has said so
much about the necessity of better
highways that sometimes we are dis
couraged when we have an opportun
ity to know what little progress, if
any, is being made in their improve
ment. We can not understand why
the people, who live in the country
and who have constant occasion to
use the roads, do not take more in
terest in them. There are times
when the expenditure of practically
no money but -simply the use of en
ergy and only for a few hours, which
is doing nothing would --ake the
roads so much better.
There is scarcely a stretch of
road in this 'county which could not
be in very much better condition to
day if, after the rains of the winter,
the farmers who live along these
roads had taken their mules and the
ordinary drag and gone over the
roads. If all of them hald united
in this it would not have taken over
a day from the farm by the use of
labor that is on the farm to have put
the roads in good condition. Instead
of that the farmers will continue to
drive their teams over these rough
roads aid complain about their bad
condition and wait for the chain
We have almost despaired for the
present of securing any permanent
road work but we are satisfied that
with a little cooperation and united
effort on the part of the people who
use the roads, we could have in~ this
county good. dirt roads, good for at
least eight months in the year.
A trip only a few days ago from
Dyson to Newberry Through the coun
try revealed the fact that the road
from the river bridge, the railroad
river bridge, ia Chappells and
Williams to Newberry is in worse
conditon today than we have ever
seen it and we have traveled this
road more or less for the past thirty

it was cut up during the excessive
rainy weather and the ruts are from
six to eighteen inches 'deep and al
most impassable. In several places
all that the public road seems to be
used for is to cross from one field to
another, the road having been trans
ferred to the field. This condition
should not exist and we can not un
derstandi why the farmers who live
along the road and who use it permit
it 'to exist whem by so little effort
and no money cost they could reme
From the eighteen mi.le post to the
railroad bridge there is no road at
all. There is a track from the school
house above Mr. W. R. Reid's which
winds around a field out to Dr. Hol
loway's and from Dr. Holloway's to
the river you could scarcely ca;ll it
more than a path. It appears that
an~ effort was made in building an
approach to the river bridge to build
it so that it would be almost impos
sible for wagon~ and other vehicles
to go on the bridge. Right at the
foot of the approach is a mud hole
two or three feet deep and as you
leave the mud hole to mount the
ibridge the roa.d rises at an angle of
abont forty-five degrees over large
This is one of the many roads in
this county which could be kept in
good condition with a little coopera
tion, and effort on the part of the
people who live along them.
We have not been to Prosperity in
some time but from the way the tel

We have assurance from the su
>ervisor that he will put the capital
aighway from the Laurens line to
the Lexington line in good condition.
E[e promises that within the next ten
lays he will take the road from New
berry to Kinards via Jalapa which
has been adopted as the capital high
way and widen it to .thirty feet and
make a first class road out of it.
His new scrapas have been received
and with his chain gang this work
ought to be completed in a very
short time. He also stated that he
would relocate the road and make a
good crossing at the Gum Spring
branch. This is the only stream on
this road between Newberry and the

pervisor is going to work this road

a better road and eight or ten grade
crossings on the railroad avoided. ln
many States they are doing away
with the grade crossing by act of the
legislature and as travel increases
and as population increases, these
grade crossings become more danger
ous and whenever possible they
should be avoided.
Between 'Newberry and Prosperity
.the road could be so located as to
avoid all crossings of the C., N. & L.

done. by all means. Some of these
crossings are very dangerous and the
rejarkajble thing is that there re
no more accidenmts.
Between Prosperity and Little
Mountainm at least four grade cross
ings of the C., N. & L., could be.
avoided and much better roads made.
In laying out this capital highway
these changes ought to be made. In
this work we are satisfied that the
supervisor will 'have the cooperation

ommerce and of the people of the
Another road which ought to be
put in good condition is one between
Tewberry and Whitmire and while
bthe distance is a little more, if the
road were worked between these
points via Caldwells it wouM s'erve
more people and the time between
the points would be re.duced.
It seems to us these two roads

crapes and teams it would not take
very long to put these roads in
