'he grand jury notes that the road
inspectors have not fifed their reports
as required by the act creating them.
The people of Whitmire and No. 4
township will hold a meeting tomor
row afternoon at Witmire to take
up for discussion the matter of im
proving the roads in that township.
They propose to get together and
build some roads themselves, and in
this effort they should have the sup
port and encouragement of the en
tire county, and we have no doubt
the supervisor will get at least one
good road through this township so
that the people from that section
may find it easy and pleasant and
convenient to come to Newberry.
The grand jury presented an ex
haustive report to the present term
of the court which contains many
valuable suggestions and which
should be -read by every citizen of the
county. We are pleased to know
that the roads are in such good con
The point to which we desire to di
rect particular attention is in urg
ing the people to take more pride in
the condition of the roads and not to
depend so much upon the chaingang.
We do not know of any statute re
quiring the chaingang to do perma
nent work, but the suggestion is a
good one, and the chaingang should
be put on permanent work and kept
The people could keep their roads
in very much better condition by the
use of the, King log drag, which is
very inexpensive and its use would
take very little time. We understand,
however, that there are several of
these drags in different sections of
the county which are not now used on

A Reluctant Candidate.
During a local election in a Ger
man town only one man appeared at
the nomination desk.
"Whom do you nominate?" inquired
"Myself," was the answer.
"Do you accept the nomination?"
"Then we must try again. Whom
do you nominate?"
"You accept the nomination ?"
A subdued "Donnerwetter!" escap

but he went on:
"For the third time, whom do you

Italian citizen was beginning to sho'w
the effects of an American oaviron

'a teachers' association meeting, runE
something like this:
Tony had been away from school
about a week, and when he showed
up one morning the teacher asked
him where he had been.
"I ran away," said Tony.
"Ran away? What did you do that
for?" asked the teacher.
"My father was going to lick me,
so I thought I'd run away," was the
The teacher by further quiestioning
brought out the fact that Tony for
gs4mg /trifling dereliction had' been
threatened with a beating and had
stayed away from home the best part
of a week.
"But your father has the right tc
whip you," said the teacher.
"Yes, he may," added Tony, "but ]
was born in this country, and I don'1
want no foreigners to lick me."

A Complete Combination.
William T. Stead, editor of the
English Review of Reviews, tells the
story of an Irishman who applied to
one of his friends for a position as!
"'You know, Pat, if I engage you
I shall expect you to do things by
combination. For instance, if I tell
you to bring the carriage round at a
given time I shall expect the horses
with it and driving gloves, etc.'
"'Yes, sorr,' said Pat.
"He was duly engaged and gave
satisfaction. One day his master came!
to him telling him to look sharp and
go for a doctor, as his mistress was
ill. Pat was gone for a long time,
and on his master grumbling at him
for his delay he said: 'Sure, they'rE

Another Way Out of It.
Nobody had ever had reason to ac
cuse Abel Pond of being dishonest,
but he was as sharp a man in a bar
gain as could be found in the county.
When the building committee applied
to him for a site for the.new library
he was ready to sell them a desirable
lot, but not at their price.
"I couldn't feel .to let it go under
$600," he said, with the mild obstin
acy that characterized all his deal-;
ings with his fellow men. "It would
not be right.",
"You ought to be willing to contri
bute something for such an object,"
said the chairman of the committee.

"M'm-no, I couldn't do that," said
Mr. Pond, stroking his chin, "but I
tell you what I will do. You give

hand it over to you, so's you can head
the list of subscriptions with a good'

Secretary Coburn and Dave Leahy
were visiting the other day, and.
Leahy mentioned the ten-story sky
scraper which some farmer ,was
erectilig in Wichita.
"Do you know, Dave" said Coburn,
without batting an eye, "that until I
became secretary of the State board
of agriculture you never heard of a
farmer having enough money t
build a skyscraper.
"Well," said Dave, "when I was a.
youngster, over in Illinois, I worked
on a section, and then got a promo-~
tion, handling baggage at a station. I
was the chauffeur of a truck. I felt
pretty big about it. Though I thought
I was getting a good pay check. I
