REPORT OF UNION COMMITTEE. t
Trip to Columbia via Carlisle Fish d
Dam Ferry and Monticello-Re- b
turn via Newberry and
The Union Times publishes the a
Executi,%e Committee and Gentlemen
of the Union Chamber of Com
We, your committee, beg to sub- -
mit the following report Promptly d
at 7 o'clock Tuesday morning we left t
Union in a car furnished by Mr. Em- q
slie Nicholson for Columbia via San- C
tuc, Carlisle, Fish Dam . Ferry, r
through Fairfield county and on to t
Columbia returning through Lexing- v
ton county and Newberry to Union. I
The trip was made without accident a
or discomfort save one puncture ii
which detained us a lialf hour at p
Prosperity on the return trip. The a
weather was propitious and the trip c
enjoyed by each of us.
We found the route via Carlisle
and through Fairfield county entire- f
ly feasible and shorter by some ten E
miles with the chief drawback beingl'
the Fish Dam Ferry over Broad river I
just four miles beyond Carlisle and C
exactly 18 miles from Union. This
is not a grievous drawback for it took I
us but 8 minutes to make. the cross
ing on a flat which is regularly maiu- C
tained by Union county. About the I
roughest road we' ,encountered was
for a half mile before reaching this I
ferry and for six miles beyond that
point. We did not go via Crosbyville t
and Feasterville, as did Messrs. c
Chambers and Lipscomb, but " left S
these points to our right and took the s
main ridge road via Beaver Dam g
church and the home of Mr. John r
Stone. Mr. Stone is /one of Chester t
county's largest cotton planters and 1
the distance from Union we found to (
be 28.3 miles. From here on to Co- 1
lumbia via the farms of Henry Owens,
30.7 miles from Union, and Samuel a
Clowney's farm 32.1 miles from Un
ion we found the roads very good. We e
passed Ladd's store, Monticello and t
Jenkinsville. At Hinnant's store we c
were 15 miles from Columbia. There a
Is a 10-mile stretch of road on this,
side of Rocky river bridge which is C
bad road. The roadbed is rock and i
rough. When we rolled into Colum- t
bia and up to Wright's hotel where f
we spent the night, we had madea
journey of 74.8 miles. There is nolt
part of this road from Union to Co- I
lumbia that would be expensive to a
put in good condition, nor is there i
any part of it that would be expensive
to maintain. The road through Union
county is now in first-class condition,
with the exception of the mile or two
as you approach Fish Dam Ferry. b
About the only criticism one would
* make of the road up to the approach
to the river is the fact that from Un
ion to that point -there are 18 cross
* ings of the Southern railway.
In Columbia we went to see Mr.
Moorman, secretary of the Columbia .
chamber of commerce and Mr. G. W.
Davis, county commissioner for
Richland. We met with some en
couragement from these gentlemen,
but they did not seem to favor the
Fairfield, Fish Dam route, mainly
for the reason that they seemed comn
mitted to the Newberry route. Mr.
Moorman said that was a fixed point, ~
but did not say who fixed it or how.
We left Columbia about 7 o'clock t
Wednesday morning and reached
Newberry through Lexington coun- t
ty before dinner. We found this
route to be fairly good all the way to
Newberry. Several miles in Lexing
ton county the roads are rocky and
poorly worked, but generally better
than the other route. We did not en
counter the bad roads here that
Messrs. Chambers and Lipscomb en
countered for the reason that we did
not go by way of Irmo. We took the
.road via Hopewell -and Wateree
churches. Chapin, 22.2 miles above
Columbia was in our route, and there K
we tarried a brief period. Little
Mountain is just 27 miles on the way
up. Upon - our arrival at Prosperity'
we were met by an escort from New-!
berry, three cars bringing Col. I. H.
Hunt, president of the Newberry
chamber of commerce, 'Col. Cole L.
Blease, mayor of Newberry, Col. E. M.
Evans, president of post J., T. P. A.,3
Mr. W. G. Mayes, president of the
Businesse Men's Credit association,V
and Messrs W. S. Langford, owner of
one of the cars, Forrest Summer, ~
owner of another car; Dr. E. H. Kib
ler, owner of the third car; Mr. W.
F. Ewart, County Supervisor L. I.
Feagle, and Mr. J. K. Aull, of The
Herald and News. Your committee 1
is under very many obligations tot I
these gentlemen for their many cour
tesies. At l'.-ocrerity the~re was a (
general changing of the occupants I
of the cars. so as to mix up. The drive
to Newberry was made in about 15 i
minutes. One mile of the way was I
over the sand-clay mile of road con
structed under government super
vision. Over this we drove at the j T
rate of 60 n.iles per hour. It would 'I
do your hearts good to ride over(
aat mile of perfectly splendid road.
t makes one see visions and dream
reams of a happy day which we
ope may be near at hand.
At Newberry we met with the
hamber of commerce and were as
ured that we stood as good show as
nybody to get the Asheville-Colum
ia road to pass through Union. They
id not seem to take to the road from
rnion to Columbia through Fairfield
ounty, but this was quite natural.
'hey assured us that we would meet
rith every assistance they could ren
er us provided the road should come
D Newberry via Union. Upon the
uestion as to whether the Union
'ross Anchor, or Clinton-Laurens
oute should be the first official routz
iey were neutral, as all three routes
rere contemplating coming to New
erry, they were neutral. They did
ssure us that the matter of improv
ig the road to Maybinton would be
ressed vigorously provided we
rould do as much for our five miles
f bad road on this side. We assur
d them that our county officials
7ere greatly interested and that we
nlt sure the road would be improv
d at once. If this 10 mile stretch
7ere put in order one could easily
oLake the trip to Newberry, a dist.nce
f 42 niles, in an hour and a half.
The good roads committee ii New
erry county is as follows: E. H.
Lull, chairman; W. S. Langford, W.
. Waldrop, C. E. Summer and E. H.
Zibler, of Newberry, and J. . F.

The road to within five miles of Ty

Medicine Free in Every Case Where ;
it Fails to Relieve. c
Neglect or pessimism, we believe,
is the greatest enemy the public has
to contend with when applied to the s
loss or recovery of health. Practi
cally every case of consumption 1
might have been cured if hope had i
been maintained and proper treat- 3
ment had been resorted to at the E
first symptom of the disease. Until
the advanced stage is- reached con
sumption is curable. Catharrh is re
sponsible, we believe, for many cases
of consumption. It is about catarrh
we want to talk to you today, inci
dentally consumption, since the two!
are so closely allied.
We have a -medicine made from a
prescription of one of the most suc
cessful catarrh specialists known.
We believe it is positively without an
equal. We are so satisfied that we
are right, that we will supply the
medicine free in every instance
where - it is used according to direc-1
tions for a reasonable length of time,j
should it fail to give satisfaction in
every particular. We want every one
to try ti medicine at our risk.
There are no conditions attached to
our offer. *e put the user under no
obligation to us whatever.
The medicine we want you to try,
is Rexall Mucu-Tone. It is a catarrh
remedy that goes direct to the seat
of trouble. It is carried by the blood
to every part of the system. It puri
fies and enriches the blood, tones up
the mucous cells, and brings about a
condition of health and strength that E
tends to prevent the germs of con
sumption from getting a start. Be
sides this, Rexall Mucu-Tone is a
wonderful appetizer, digestive aid
and flesh builder. Its good effects
are often felt from the very first dose.
It is one of the largest and most sat-*
isfactory selling medicines that we
have ever had anything to do with.
We know so much of .the -great
good that it has done that we per
sonally back it up with our reputa
tion and money, which fact should be
ample guarantee to satisfy anybody.
Rexall Mucu-Tone comes in two
sizes, 50 cents and $1. We urge you
to try it. Remember you can obtain
Rexall Remedies in Newberry onl.y
