RUBAL LETTER CARRiq.
resident Thos. E. Wicker Gives In- g
Interesting Information About c
Approaching Convention. a
The annual convention of the rural
,tter carriers of South Carolina will m
Leet in Newberry July 3, 4 and 5. :
he local carriers are making ela- c
)rate preparations for the enter- Y
Linment of the delegates to this con- t
mntion and they have the hearty co-.
peration of the chamber of com
erce through President I. H. Hunt
ad the citizens of the city generally.
is the purpose of the people of
ewberry to make this one of the best
Leetings in the history of the assoN
ation. Apart from the fact that this
the home of the president, Mr. T. E. <
icker, and therefore, our people are r
axious to give the carriers a pleas- t
at time, everything will be done c
iat will contribute to the pleasure ]
ad comfort of the delegates while i
iey are in our midst.
A representative of The Herald a I t
[ews had a talk with Presidant '
Ticker in regard to the approaching C
nvention and in response to a
nestion Mr. Wicker said: "We have '
1 South Carolina seven hundred and
fty local letter carriers who travel I
1 the aggregate 17,000 miles and 1
andle 100,000 pieces of mail matter
aily. There are," said President
Vicker, "254 postoffices in South
,arolina from which rural routes
minate. Most of these are' in the
edmont section. The coast coun
les have but few routes." -
Speaking of the State association
r. Wicker said: "Our organization
a this State is not strong com
ared with the number of car
ie-s in the State, but this is largely
ue to the fact that our association in
he years past has had its light hid
.nder a bushel. It has received lit
le or no recognizition from the news
apers and hence half of the carriers
a the State hardly know that such
n organizatioA exists. I feel sure
bat the assistance and cooperation
f tWe press in giving publicity to
ur coming convention in Newberry
uly 3, 4 and 5, will result in much
'ood for the association. It Is our 1
urpose," continued Mr. Wicker, "to
how the non-association carriers,
ae press and the public in general
iat we have a real, live, enthusiastic
orking organization that is capable
f rendering many benefits to rural
atrons, to the postoffiee department,
nd to ourselves.
Mr. Wicker has invited, and in this
e has the support of the city of New
erry, any letter carrier whether he j
e a member or not to attend this I
nvention. "Anyone wishing to ae
a3int himself w'ith the objects and i
urposes of our association," said Mr.
icker, "is cordially invited to at- i
md the session of our coming an
ual convention. This session will 1
e free and open to the public."
President Wicker said that they
rere expecting at the meeting at
'ewberry several distinguished visi- i
rs from outside the State. "Hon. a
7. R. Spillman, superintendent of the
aral mails of the postoffice at Wash
rgton, and Hon. W. D. Brown, editor(
! the R. F. D. News, of Washington,"
ud President Wicker, "have promis- 1
C to come and I am making another<
Iort to get Senator Clay, of Geor- a
fa, to' visit us. We are expecting
iso' several of the congressmen from
is State to be present."
Speaking of the organization In <
is State and the interest which has ,
een taken by the carriers, President (
Ticker said: "While only about half t
! the co,unties in the State are or- t
anir.d we are working to have pres- I
at one or more representatives from
very county in the State. It is im- C
ossible to say just now how many (
elegates and visiting carriers will 1
ame, but the local committees are
reparing to entertain the largest
umber of 'rural carriers ever as- ,
mbled in this State.
"The features of the convention i
ill be an address on Monday after- t
oon, the 4th," said Mr. Wicker, "by <

THE KING LOG DBRAG.
Used by City of Greenwood-Does
Good Work-Would Do Good
Work In Newberry.
The Herald and News has very fre
ently called attention of the King
oad drag and urged its use. It has
he endorsement of government offi
ials in connection with the road de
artment of the government. It is
nexpensive in manufacture and cost
Lttlte to operate, and -experience. bas.
aught that it does more efficient
vork than higher priced road . ma.
Sometime ago a representative of
rhe Herald and News was in Green
vood and had the pleasure of listen
ng to a talk on the use of this d,ag
)y Mr. Winfield Thorne, who also 4x
xibited a model 5ing0" th eg

Mr. Winslow, of the good roads des

ime ago and stated that the log drag
ivas far superior to the - steel drag
md Mr. Winslow explained to Mr.
4iller, who is in charge of the coun
:y chaingang, the advantage of the
og drag over a steel drag.
It is difficult sometimes to get red

horne is an enthusiast on the sub

rags were put on the streets immed-'
ately after the heavy rains of last
eek and notwithstanding the street
uts caused by heavy teams, every

Mr. Thorne added that after this
ractical experience the city ,of
Ireenwood is decidedly of the opin
on that one team and the King drag
yould do more work than three teams
and an expensive machine. Mr.

hat you could travel over 'th4m' with

It would be a good work if the
hamber of commerce would furnish
drag to any community in the
ounty with the guarantee that it
ould be used on the roads after
ach rain. The beauty about that is
hat the time to use the drag is when
