A good time after these rains to
use the split log drag. It is the d
cb,eapest and best way to secure and d
retain good roads.
There didn't seem to be much doing I
in politics during the State fair last
week. Judge Jones took the leap on f
some of the boys and they don't know
just where they are at.
The thing for the .farmers to do in
the present situation is to sta-ll to
gether and to uphold the reso'utioits
adopted at the meeting in Co!rmbia s
last week. c
The corn exhibit -will be held in
Newberry on the 17th. The boys' con
test, as well as the contest for the
prizes offered. by the Farmers' union, ir
will be at the same time. It is hoped w
there will be a good exhibit.
The way to control the price of cot
ton is to grow on the farm what you tj
need for the farm and to make your M
cotton a surplus crop and then to h
grow all the cotton you can regard- s
less -of the price. We nave said this a
hundred times before, bat it is so
true it will bear repetition. Look is
around you and you can fnd practical h
demonstration of its truth.' As a rule t
the -all cotton grower never baakes
any money when the price it up, and
the farmer who follows the rule here
stated makes a little %money even when
the price is down. Resolutions about M
bolding and curtailing and reducing e
acreage are all right Dut the rule we c.
give will beat them all.
The Herald has .been watching 'with u
a great deal of interest the experi- ~
-ments in other counties with rural ti
policemen'ind 'Me have come to the c
conclusiona -that it would be a good
idea for the county commisioners to t
provide rural policemen for Dillon.
county. There is a great deal of -law
lessness on the public highways that
never comes to the attention of the a
proper authorities and we believe that
a couple of active and vigilant rural
policemen would more than earn the
salary they would receive from the.
county. The speeding of automobiles
and the reckless discharge of firearms,
on the public highways are two nuis
ances that should be. abated, and the
only way to get after such off ders
is to patrol the highways with mount
ed officers. -We beliedie we voice the
sentiment of two-thirds of the tax pay
ers of the county in recommending to
zhe county commissioners the em
ployment of rural policemen and we
should be glad to see the'board take
the matter up at its next meeting.
Some ten years ago when the editor(
of The Herald and News was a memn- i
ber of the legislature he introduced a
.bill providing for a system of rural
police for the entire State, but he was
~not able to convince the legislaturei
that it wa.s the proper thing, and the i
bill failed of passage.
It was a good bili and should have
been made a law. The purpose then
was to have it take the place of the
There is no reason why the people
who live in the rural districts should
not have the protection of a constabu
lary, and the proper and most effec
tive system would be a system cover
ing the entire State.
Of course the county constabulary
is of value and will do good service,
but a well organized force covering
the entire State would be vastly more

"The Long Roll" is as "miserably

he tells a story to explain the dilap

Vhen in winter quarters, during the

ie gold braid from his new cap and
presented it to the young child of the
amily whose hospitality he was ac

hat General Jackson's "mind was so

imself in fine clothes--even forget
ing that he was making himself con

o dress." Several persons who knew

contradiction to Miss Johnston's es
imate. In his home life he is said to
Lave been "a man of the highest cour

"He was often mis.iugded as harsh

vife, "though his heart was really as
