What a glorious time this is to use
the split log drag on the roads. The
rain on Saturday would make the work
fine the first of this week. But some
one is ready to say that i':c- is too
busy just now to do anything on the
road. Let us whisker to you 'gently

be made thai^ a few hours properly
spent in dragging the roads. Especially
does the road from Newberry'to
Prosperity need tr.e application of the

right now and paying some one to
drag this road and fill in the holes.
It will cost vers- little from each one

one trip over the road. Suppose we

I? We have received ti e toiiowing iec
ter from Dr. James !A. Hayne, secretary
of the State board of health. We
have taken our typewriter in hand
but we will just let him say to you
what he has written to us. Here is
the letter in full: *
"Please take your typewriter in
hand and soak fcer for a few editorial'lines,
in a praiseworthy endeavor
to get your community's mind off the
war ana nara times, Dy joimng in a,
Jively celebration of Clean-up day,
which .has been designated for celebration
April 10, throughout the State.
"Every city, town, hamlet and school
in t>'-e State is invited to join in the
/big warfare that day against dirt and
debris and the nests and breeding
places- of germs, flies and mosquitoes.
'"The State board of health is inithe
pplphration ?t thp instance
of the Federation of Women's clubs.
'The women should get together at
once and appoint ward or district committees
to put the job tcrough. Call
on your local board of health and city
authorities to help.
"The State board of health has
thousands of fo.'uers outlining in detail
the scheme and ti e benefits to be
derived. A postal to the State board
of health. Columbia, S. C., will bring
one bv return mail to anyone desiring
"In a few days the State board of
health will have a supply of these folders
sent to ve mayor of your town."
April 10 is the day he sets apart as
clean-up day. The only criticism we
would make is to say that one day is
not sufficient, but it is better to have
one day than none at all. We should
ha^e a clean-up day every week. In
fact it should not be necessary for the
State board of health or any oti':er
board to suggest to the people the ner*Pe?it.Y

Teachers' cottages are fc":e latest J
thing in education. The State of Texas j
has about 100 of fc'nem, and so has the f
Stat'"1 of Washington. Alabama ha^ I
taken to the idea with enthusiasm. I
T ere are six of these homes for teach- !
ers in one county, and in one town !
there is a cottage built by public sub
I scnpuon, wnn six acres 01 iaiu
i . I
i around it. In some of tr.e cottages \
j severa] teachers live together on a ec- |
j operative basis. It's a vast improve- I
| ment ever the old "boarding round" j
The county of Richland has had several
of these cottages or romes for j
j teachers for several years. We advo- j
1 cated them for Newberry some several,
. years ago. Tcey are coming. A sys-1
tern of this kind is the solution of tne j
rural school system. Our country i
schools must so unite and consoli- j

| or more teachers in eao'j school and
J then the district should own some
j twenty acres of land and let the teacher
live there the year out and become
a permanent citizen of the community
and a leader in all things that are for
the betterment and uplift of t?-e com
We can never make a great deal of
progress in rural education so long as
the teachers are only itinerants, so
to speak, and remain in the community
only during the short school terms.
The teacher in this way scarcely forms
the acquaintance of the ctilQren and
never Knows mucn aDout u:>e me 01
the\ parents, and, therefore, is not fullyequipped
properly to teach the children.
Ti:en the .borne, and the farm i
connected with it and the school, could
contribute to the support of the teacher
and also be used as a demonstration
farm for the purposes of teaching ag- |
riculture and housekeeping and gardening
and everything that goes to
make the ideal country home.
Tie tendency is in that direction,
and the time is coming when such a
! plan will be adopted in a great many,
if not all, our rural Schools. We visited
one of these schools in Richlaqrl
some years ago, thougu it was located
in a small town and had no farm, but
ther? was the tiouse for the teachers
i ani'? fhpv livpri in it foepthpr a.nr) kpnt
house, and we were told that their
living expenses under fois plan
amounted only to about six dollars
the month, and the teachers iiked fcbe
plan better than "boarding around/' ,
The Columbia correspondent of the
News and Courier is responsible for
the statement that all of the social
clubs have gone "dry" and are now
ooeying me law. une or tne reasons
assigned by the correspondent is that
"it is wortr.y of note that probably
the overwhelming majority of the
members of these clubs voted for Gov.
Manning, and they are goin^ to back
up every step he takes :'or law enforcement."'
Well, that is nor exactly j
I * ?
j the spirit to commend, because if they
| are good citizens, and we believe they
| are, and in favor of law enforcement,
: trey should be so whether they voted
tor Gov. Manning or not. But it is better
thus than to go on violating the
law. Wo hope the correspondent
knows what he is talking about and
that the law against liquor selling is
being enforced, and tljat all ot^er laws
will likewise 'have proper respect.
Gov. Manning will be commended
| for his promptness in calling a special
| session or court for Abbeville county
I to try the slayers of the aged Lownesville
We do not copy this to criticize Gov.
Manning, because we suppose he ordered
the special court at the request
of the solicitor. Neither is it our purpose
to criticize f e solicitor, but simply
to say that we do not believe in
; t::ese special courts. We do not believe
that they do any good in the suppression
of crime. They are generally
called with the view of having the accused
convicted and executed, rather
t" an have the mob do it, and as a rule
the public mind is in no condition to
give the accused a fair and impartial

We nctice that (lov. Manning gives

by making application tor the place.

t'rat the office should seek the man
and not the man the office. . That is
hig:: ground, but we thought the constitution
guaranteed to every one t'":e
right to petition, which, in ouer words,
is the right to ask for. Certainly the
fact that a man asks for a position
should not be prejudicial to his case. i
I'nd besides, we were just wondering j
if Go.. -..'aiming did not himself seek !
the position v.i. ie'i he now holds. Our
lecollection is that he and a number
of ether honorable and competent gentlemen,
in a certain campaign about >.
year ago, went out over this State and
asked the people for the office of governor.
Then why si.ould some little
fellow w,_o happens to feel that hf j
could fill a certain position have his j
case prejudiced if he made known his j
desire by asking for the job?

Herald. He is a bright lad and a good newspaper
boy. W% are surprised
however, that he should be ignorant
of the meaning of so simple a word
as "balderdash," and if he will consult
his Webster's he will find out
what it means.

this one of the most notable of the
annual conventions of t':is great order. !
Mr. utto Kiettner is in charge of the-i
local arrangements and t':at means ;
that everything will be well done. The

great order is to hold its annual con-!
