The people are awakening to the
economy of building good roads. For
many years every effort has been bent
toward enlightenment on the good
roads question. We have been doing
a great deal of talking but not much
-"-king. All of this has been necessary
to convince the majority of people
that an expediture for good roads
is a real economy. The time has about
come when the people are ready to
support a real good roads movement.
We hope this is true, ana oeneve
it is. The Herald and News for
many years has been a persistent and
consistent advocate of the building
of good roads. The people will come
to realize some day that a tax for
road building is different from any
other tax. It is an investment that
will pay larger dividends to all the
people than any other investment
they could possibly make. We have
never heen able to understand whv
every one did not take more interest
in road building, or bow any one
could oppose a reasonable tax for
A reporter of the Greenville News
met a prominent citizen of this city
on Main street yesterday and in
course of conversation remarked on
tbe handsome suit of clothes he.was
wearing and the gentleman replied:
"This cloth is known as calvert cloth,
was manufactured by the Drayton
mills at Spartanburg and the suit
made up here in Greenville." Pointing
to his shirt he said, "This shirt
was made of Greenville cotton by the
Duncan mills of this city and bleached
at the Union bleacherv of
Greenville." He also said, "My underclothes
were made by a local mill,
the "Watts mills of Laurens, bleached
by the Union bleacherv of Greenville,
and manufactured by the Xncka??e
Manufacturing company of this city.
Everything I h^ve on except my
stockings was made in Greenville or
This local carries with it a good
suggestion. We could and should
manufacture more of the things we
wear right here at home. It carries
another suggestion also, that we
might, to great advantage, grow more
of the things we eat.
For a long time we only grew the
cotton and it was shipped off and
made into cloth and then shipped
back to us. Then we began to spin
and then to weave and still wg sent
the cloth off for manufacture. Why
not manufacture some of it at home.
It would furnish profitable employment
for our people and keep our
money at home.
TO BUILD TO GREENWOOD.
A railroad from Greenwood to
-Tocnston, connecting Greenwood with
the proposed Columbia-Augusta line,
?s a suggestion to stir the imagination
of men who believe in Greenwood as
one of the big towns to be of South
Carolina and set them working with
Besides, a connection at Greenwood

direct would open a splendid
prospect for the further and more
' apid development of at least one-half
of the territory of South Carolina.
It would spell growth for Columbia,
but not for Columbia alone. Au'usta
has a stake in tee planned development.
Greenwood is a vigorous community

Newberry should get into this pic+ure
somewhere. A road across the
^tate via Edgefield, Saluda
Newberry. and on to Spartanburg
would open a territory
greatly in need of railroad facilities.
From Greenville to Columbia
via Laurens and Newberry a rr>pd
"ould be built without crossing an v
stream of any consequence until the
river at Columbia was reached, and
it is almost a level plateau all the
vay. We should get in touch somewhere.
U. S. District Attorney Cochran has
resigned. Senator Tillman has re
commended J. W. Thurmond, of Edge- ,
field, and Senator Smith has recom- ;
; mended F. H. "Weston, of Richland. ,
!Under an arrangement with the dele-!
j gation the appointment of district at- '

the senators. Senator Tillman recommended
J. L. Sims, of Orangeburg,
! for marshal and benator bmith acquiesced.
President Alison might j
1: do well to make his own selection for .
district attorney and if he has not j
made up his mind we would like to '
! suggest for his consideration the
' name of M. Rutledge Rivers, of Chari

in appointing Mr. Rivers. He is a
i good lawyer and a fine gentleman

'Commissioner Watson is devoting
; a good deal of time to exploiting the ;
i buliding of good roads. We notice
' that he has gotten the people of the
j Piedmont aroused to the building of J
. a road to the mountains, and now he
is working on a road from Charleston
Newberry should be interested in this
proposition. A main thoroughfare
1 from the coast to the mountains via
I Newberry would be a great thing for1
the town. It would be worth as much (
as another railroad. We are on the 1
; direct line, but we should be on the
alert and let those interested know
, that we also are interested. Good \
'things don't always come unless you

I We would like to see this made a
State road and our suggestion that
the convicts now in the penitentiary ;
and soon to be out of a job could be
utilized to great advantage on a pro1
position like this. In fact, they could
not be worked to greater advantage

! We wonder if General Manager J. j
F. Livingston knows the condition of
, the coaches he is operating on the !
morning train from Laurens to Co- ,
! lumbia and hack in the afternoon and i
; the amount of travel that this train j
handles. We doubt if he does, and
, we don't like to say that either, for j
; it might indicate that he was not on !
i his job and we know he is, and we '
' don't like to admit that he has knowl- j1
edge and will not or does not provide !
i better accommodations. We have j
been on that train frequently and j
1 every time on leaving Columbia there j
\ was scarcely sufficient capacity. The
; same way going down in the morning.
; The coaches are in bad sanitary conI
dition. The windows will not stay j
up and altogether the accommoda- j
Itions are potf, very poor. This train
j is a great accommodation for the peo'
pie along the line. The schedules
1 are satisfactory. It is a great train
i for the Columbia merchants. The
people who love to patronize it should i
be given better accommodations.
The same may be said of the regu;
lar passenger train except that the
! coaches are better. But it is always
I crowded. Frequently there is not

j We hope Mr. Livingston will look

j vide better coaches.
J Tiie Right Man in the Right Palce. |
Mr. Robert Xorris, who has beenj
! recently appointed general agent of'
the Manhattan Life Insurance com- J
pany for South Carolina, left on Tues- j
day for Columbia to take up the duties
of the position, the State agency
being located in that city. Mr. Xorris j

, floor of the recently completed Pal- !
imetto National bank building, which !
! is probablv the handsomest office i
building in South Carolina.
In .Mr. Xorris, the Manhattan Life '
j has secured one of the best insurance
1 men in the State to look after its:
interests in this section, and it is |
safe to predict that, under his super- j
vision, the South Carolina agency!
will have to be reckoned with by i
State agencies of this and other companies
when it comes to a "show
down*' of the best agency in the United
Mr. Xorris knows the insurance
business from A to Z, and his policy- j
writing ability is second to that of ;
no other insurance man in South Car-,
olina. He will be a valuable addi- |
tion to the large colony of Xewberrians
in Columbia, who have done? j
and are doing?so much to make the
capital city what it is.

Football Certainty at Newberry.
The officials of Newberry college
have definitely decided to allow a
team to represent the institution this
fall. Already five games have been
scheduled. From the abundance of j
material though handicapped by in- j
experience, the prospects for a win- j
ning aggregation are good.
A force of men were put to ;rcork j

on their way.
Captain Floyd has sent a call to
the probable football candidates to

Floyd will probably play the quarter j
back position on the team in which '
capacity his friends are predicting!
he will excel anything in the State.
Being of the cool calculating sort,
combined with his ability to boot the J
ball he will prove an invaluable man
in ,the backfield.
Guy Brown who for several years !
was a star perforn..er on the Georgia
Military Academy football team has
announced his intention of attending
Xewberry tue coming year. It is
firm belief that he can hold down the
position of tackle. Brown is a big
fellow tipping the beam at 180 j
pounds and should be a tower of
strength to the team on the line.
