EXTEND THE LINE.
From Augrusta to Columbia. Thencei
Via Laurens on up to (ireenville,
Parr Shoals Power.
ft Columbia, S. C., April 27.?Th-e anR
nouncement from Augusta that the
H contract for the construction of the
Georgia & Carolina Railway, which
is to extend from Augusta to Colum
Fbia, had been awarded was received
with general interest by all Columbians.
Business men of Columbia j
were delighted with the announcement
and expressed the opinion that the
new electric and steam lie would
mean much to both Augusta and Columbia
as well as all cities and towns
in Western Carolina.
There is a movement on foot to build
a trolley line from Columbia to Greenville
by way of Laurens. In that
event Augusta would be given an in
terurban connection witl. the rich |
Piedmont section of South Carolina, |
which would mean much from a trade j
standpoint. The question of construc- l
in? the new line wis discussed at a!
meeting of business men held here j
during the last general as-emblv. It |
it thought that should this line be j
constructed the power to bs- developed j
at Parr Shoals on Broad River, twenty- j
two miles above Columbia, will be i
used. The company is spending sev-j
eral million dollars and 27,000 horse- j
power will be developed. The inter-!
urban in this State is rapidly develop- J
ing. Greenwod is now connected with j
Grenville and Anderson by an -elec-1
trie line, and work on the road from;
Greenville to Spartanburg is progress-;
ing. The roacV-it is said, will be e*en-;
tually carri-sd to Charlotte. Thus Au- |
gusta would be placed in connection
with North C&rolina cities by electric
line. There is also some talk of expending
the line from Greenville to
The preliminary survey for the
Georgia & Carolina Railway was prepared
by the Shand Engineering comuany
of Columbia. TV is very probable
that the Augusta & Aiken Railway j
will be used from Augusta to Aiken. I
t From Aiken the line pases through j
that county to a point on the Southern
Railway near Ridge Spring. From
th-ere the Southern is foHowed to Columbia.
The road will touch Batesburg,
Leesville and Lexington.
Lexington, S. C., April, 27.?The an- i
nouncemsnt that the construction of j
the Carolina & Georgia Railway is j
now an assured fact, is received with ;
considerable interest , by the peopleof
this county. Nothing could mean
more for th? advancement of Lexington,
and this the people realized several
years ago when they gave the
right of way for the roadbed merely
fof the asking.
The line wil traverse more than
thirty miles through *his county, passing
through a rich, fertile country, and
property values will be largely increased.
Postmaster in Spartanburg.
The appointment of P. H. Fike as
postmaster in Spartanburg is a happy
issue out of the "postoffice situation." j
We congratulate Congressman Johnson
upon liis selection and the whole
town is congratulating itself upon
theN prospect of having Mr. Fike in
this important position.
First. Fike is a newspaper man,
which means he is a student of human
nature and a philiosopher. He
is popular with the people of Spari
tanburg from the lowest to the highest
and his appointment will carry
w more genuine pleasure into the hearts
of people everywhere than any selection
Mr. Johnson could have made.
Second. Fike is efficient?in the
modern meaning of ' the word. He
does his work thoroughly and when
he becomes postmaster he will be
efficient and painstaking. And with
it all he will meet *he public with
that serene smile that has made him,
possibly, the most popular man in
Mr. Fike has been engag-ed in newspaper
work in Spartanburg for 12
years, and is acquainted, perhaps, with
more people in the city than any other
man. His unfailing courtesy and fair
dealing have \von f<~?r him the esteem
of all who know him. He was connected
with the Herald for ten years
before he accepted the position of
secretary to Mr. Johnson, and returned
to this newspaper only last Monday,
giving ^ip his desirable occupation in
Washington in order that he might re- j
side in Spartanburg, his home town.

The Rev. Dr. Philips I!!.
Chester cor. Rock Hill Herald, 2.~th.
Much concern regarding his health
is felt lure for the Rev. D. C. Philips,
D. D., the beloved pastor of the Assoj
eiate Reformed Presbyterian church.
; He. was granted a leave of absence by
the othcers of his church and first
spent 10 days in Georgia, but has returned
home and left for Baltimore
J where he will seek advice from some
j of America's most celebrated physi;
cians. His indisposition is caused by
| nervousness. Dr. Philips is one of the
I most able and eloquent ministers of
this denomination. Prior to coming to
Chester he held an important pastorate
at Newberry. There is not a better
lov-ed man in all Chester than
Dr. Philips, and his absence, his many
friends hope, will be a short one.

Third and Eighth Commandments.
The profane man that "curses and
swears" must have a reason for doing
so. Think of it. The preachers have
denounced the habit for more than
one hundred years, and are still
preaching against profane swearing.
Yet is is still here and plenty of it.
It seems that preaching against this
habit is almost a waste of time. If
mc.n are determined to curse and to
swear profane oaths in the face of all
this opposition, there must be a
ctr.-mor renson for it. And it may be
that several reasons could be given
r iid th? reason that would apply to one
man would not apply to another man.
But yet there may be an underlying
cause that would apply to most cases,
and branching out from this all the
other cases of swearing could be explained
I have sought examples in
Bible characters an<I such as I find
appear to indicate a disappointed
grafter. That is the person wanted
to give what belonged to other people
and because he could not gain what

use profane cursig is resentment. I
suppose that many who use profane
swearing do so as a resentment for
real or supposed injury. In some
cases it is possible that the profane
swearer may use the words unwittingly,
not realizing that he is using holy
names improperly. Probably we could
not accuse such a p^son of being dishonest.
But for some reason he is J
inclined to be recklo.ss in tire use of;

He is willing to throw away the holy j
name oF God and in the same way!
he would throw a way his and other'
people's rights or property. Within i
the past few years profanity has j
been held in check and since the pro-!
fane man is taking a back seat, the j
man who cheats or outs extravagant
prices on things is being called on to
take a back seat too. It is probable
