THAT LEXINGTON ROAD.
In regard to the highway -between
Newberry and Columbia to which ref
erence has been made in The Herald'
and News, Supervisor Langford, of
Lexington county, was in Newberry
last week-. We regret that we did not
get to see him. We understand that he
told some persons in the county that
one reason he had not up to this time
done any work on the roads in the fork
is that there has been agitation of an
nexing that portion to Richland coun
ty and he was waiting until some
thing definite had been done before
doing any work.
We believe, however, that Mr. Lang
ford, if the matter were properly pre
sented to him, could be induced to do
some work on the roads in the Fork
because it is but simple justice for the;
people of this section, who are as yet
a part of Lexington county and who
contribute to the support of the coun
ty government, that they should have
some consideration. We had hoped
that Mr. Langford would have done
some work on this road before this!
time and we hope that he may yet be
induced to go into that section regard
less of the agitation of the annexation
of it'to Richland county.
COLUMBIA TO GREENVILLE.
Speaking of the other train from
Greenville to Columbia via the C., N.
&. L. and C. & W. C., arrangements
have been made by which this train
was put on yesterday morning. It
will be run exclusively as a passenger
train and will leave Greenville at 7
o'clock in the morning, arriving in
Columbia, Gervais street, at 11.15,
passing Newberry at 9.32 instead of
8.47 as heretofore. It will be known
as train No. 55 instead of No. 15. Re
turning from Columbia it will leave
the Gervais street station at 5 o'clock
instead of 5.20, and arrive at Newberry
at 6.44 instead of 7.25. Instead of be
ing known as train No. 14, it will be
designated as train No. 54. The same
crew that has been operating Nos. 15
and 14 'will operate the new train be
tween Laurens and Columbia.
If this train were operated on Sun
day, it would be a great convenience
to people 'who desire to go to Co
lumbia and spend the day but, we un
k derstand, at present it is not to be
operated on Sunday.
We hope now that the Pullman;
which has been promised between Co
lumbia and Atlanta via Clinton will be
put on this train at once.
It will be seen that the schedule on
the train between Laurens and Co
lumbia has been only slightly chang
ed. We hoped that it would be possi
ble to operate the train so that it
would arrive in Columbia not later
than 11 o'clock but it is so near 11!
that everybody ought to be satisfied.
By leaving Columbia twenty minutes
earlier 'will be a great advantage to
the people from this section as it wil!
arrive in Newberry three-quarters of:
an hour earlier in the afternoon.
'There is another matter to which we;
intended to diroct attention last week
in our remarks on the road between
Newberry and Columbia. The one mile
of government road needs attention. In
fact, it is now getting in holes and if
not given attention before the rainy
season, the good work that was done
on this road will be lost. It could be
repaired now at a minimum of costI
and it does seem that the people. who
live just along the road ought to take
enough interest and pride in such a:
road to give it that little attention.

* THE IDLER.*
* * * * * * *~ *~ * *~ * * * *
I have received the following:
Friend "Idler": I. like every one
else. do not know who you are, but I
am led to believe that you are well
named, for you seem to be too idle to
town. This is conclusively shown in
your suggestion of the name of a m:in
for alderman for Ward 5 who does not
live in said ward.
Now, my friend, so long "s you dlo
vote your time to suggestions regard
ing the city park and punching Johi
PIard anl Zach Wright, we can read
your articles with something like
amusement;.but, when you 1ve into
politics, you make the mistake of your
life, for if you are the man I thit.k you
are, you are "out of class" Hoping
tat you will take this as kindly as It
is meant I am, Yours truly,
This is but another illustration of
the truth of the old saying I used to
hear when I was young, that the
shoemaker had better stick to hs hst
You see, by deviating from my line
and diving into politics even where I
thought the water was shallow, I
have but exposed my ignorance, 1
don't know anything about politics
and care less. I admit the "corn," I
was out of "my class," but it seemed
to me it was getting time to have a
little something doing and I ventured
to make a suggestion and got all mix
ed up. You see, I don't get out much
and I really don't know where the
ward lines are or where many people
live. I promise my good friend who
thus exposes my ignorance that I will
try to stick to my last and keep in
"my class" in the future. Any of the
good men and true who have been
"mentioned" as possible candidates
for mayor and aldermen will suit me.
I try to get on with all of them. May
or Langford will be all right to me ,
and if it is Mayor Baxter, well and
good. Let the people rule.
Now, I heard that some one said that
because I remarked the city wantel
a live and progressive adminstraton,
that I meant to convey the idea that
the present administration was the!
other thing. I said nothing of the kind
and didn't mean it either. The pres
ent administration suits me all right.
r would like to see some permanent
improvements made but I reckon it
takes something besides the mayor
and aldermen to do it. I have beeu
told that it would take money to pave
the streets and 'to stop the floods flow
ing down the streets after each rain.
That may be true. If it is let us go to
work and get the money. But as for
suggesting candidates I am done and
i.s none of my suggestees are likely
to run I have done no harm. At least
[ have done no one harm. I hate 'to
give pain. That is not in "my class."
[ can scarcely kill a flea. And I al
ways sympathize with the man who is
lown and want to help him. Now, I
idn't mean to say that my suggestees
were down or needed help, because
they are not and don't. But let me
get rid of this subject and get back
in "my class." That is if I have a
Oh, yes, that park-The Idler's park.'
[ get powerful discouraged sometimes.
[ almost believe that the good peop'e
of Newberry would rather have the
grass and the weeds-the cotton and
the corn-grow in the city than to have
beautiful and well kept lawns, and as
[or parks they don't seem to give a
snap of their finger-that is if they*
have to pay for them. They are afraid
somebody else will enjoy them. I
thought Jno. Kinard would some time
get aroused and assemble a few of his
other rich friends and say to them:
"Look here, boys, this is a good old
town. It has been kind to us. We
have prospered in it. Our coffers are
full. We can go away in the summer
and promenade on the board walk at~
Atlantic Beach; with the thousands of
other rieb folk, but there are a lot of
poor folk here who have helped to:
make our money for us who can't get
away. And then the children, they
can't all go. Now, we owe it to our
own people-the stay at homes-to
spend a few dollars to make a park
for their pleasure and amusement
during the hot summer months. It
won't take much. Now, coma across.
Cooperation is the plan."
But he hasn't done it. I think he
will soon. I am still hoping.
I heard that Mr. Burton had secured
some options on the bottoms, but it
may be that he was only going to do
it. I hope he has these options. If he
hasn't I beg him to get them at once.
What is the use to wait. I am grow
ing old and if the park d,oes not come
soon it will be too late for me.
Land is cheaper in Newberry nc w'
than it will ever be again. The people
who own adjacent land to the proposed1
park could well afford to donate the'
park because the building of the park
would enhance the value of such prop
erty at least an hundred fold.

us one of our most earnest mnembers,
the wife of our beloved president;
therefore, be it resolved:
1. That we, as officers and members
of the Epworth League of Central
church, feel that in the loss of Mrs.
Lula B. Epting one of our best work
ers and most interested members has
been taken from us.
2. That we tender to the bereaved
husband and all of her children our
deepest sympathy and pray that the
Great Father of us all may sustain
them in their deep sorrow, realizing
that we do not sorrow as those who
have no hope, but theiirs and our
loss is her eternal gain.
3. That a copy of these resolutions
be spread upon our minutes, a copy
sent to the family and copies be senm
to the county papers and to the Ep
