Tuesday, August 31, 1915. ,
We saw tfce split log dra^ being used
with, good results on the roads of Spartanburg
county. The same results
would come from its use on the roads
of this county. Try it.
It looks now that the farmer is going
to be able to get money on his
cotton if it is stored in th$ right sort |
of warehouse. The thing is to get the f
warehouse facilities and the farmer
will be master of the situation.
CThe Newberry Herald and News
eays ex-Gornror Blease's speech at
Bosun was a good one. Mucn oongea
for the information, Col.?Anderson
You should read it, my boy, and then
you would be in position to judge for
yourself, and witu your sound judgment
we feel sure you would agree
The Commercial bank announces that
it is ready and willing to take care of
the cotton situation &nd is prepared to
lend money on cotton. The president
says he has just returned from the

sary financial arrangements to handle
loans with good collateral. It is a
good sign when people who have
money feel that it is well .to advertise
t?ie fact that they have money to sell.
"Last fall there was no such condition.
It means that better times are coming
V _ I
and that they are not so far away.

The editor had the pleasure of attending
the children's day exercises on
Sunday at Bachman Chapel church.
There was a' large congregation pres
nt, many more than could get in ti:e
church. The children did well and one
thing that impressed "the stranger was J
that there were grown-up children in
the Sunday school! Mr. G. I. Kinard
Is the enthusiastic supeintendent. The

beautifully kept and everything had a
n-eat appearance. We feel a deep interest
in the people of this community
and it is pleasing to note that they are
moving forward in church and school
matters. The road across to the church
needs the attention of some one. It
Is in worse condition now than it "a as
twenty years ago.
The National bank is still making
the announcement that it is prepared
v< . to let every farmer L. Newberry county
have money on his cotton warehouse
receipt. The rate and tee time will
be made satisfactory. If you have cotton
and want to keep it off the market
and thus help to get a fair price for
it, the National bank will handle your
receipts, and we have no doubt the
other banks will do the same thing.
If toe banks throughout the cotton belt
will do this, and we have no doubt they
will, the price of cotton should advance.
It will not be necessary to force the
cotton on the market, but the farmer
by this plan will be able to market
his crop gradually and in this way help
to keep a fair price for it.
The interest and enthusiasm in the
building of the Appalachian highway
goes on unabated. It seems now that
it win De Duni. iue oooster mp ana
speech-making tour on last Friday and
Saturday stowed that the people along
the way are more interested the more
they think and talk about the building
of this road.
Col. Watson Came through from Columbia
on Friday morning and was
joined at Newberry by several cars and
a number of the citizens. Col. Watson
was a little late on account of the
strenuous trin hp had taken tihp dav
before and as a result the party did
EOt leave Newberry until nearly 12
< o'clock on Friday.
In the party from Newberry were
the following cars and occupants: M. i
B. Clisby's car, with Mayor Z. F..,
(Wright, President J. Henry Harms,
Cashier M. L. Spearman .and P.. H.

others. At Whitmire the party was j

their co-operation in the real work of;
building the road. I am not going to1
undertake to report any speeches, but
will give the names of those who spoke |
at the various stops to indicate the interest
that is being taken in ti-is high
way improvement. Col. Watson, Mayor
Z. ?. Wright and Supervisor Sample
of the boosters on the trip,spoke at
Brown's mill and Dr. "W. C.'Brown,
representing those of the community,
spoke at this place. Dr. Brown re
counted some very interesting historical
facts connected with the community
and the State which it would be
well to preserve, and we have the
promise that the facts will be written
The next stop was at Whitmire,
where another enthusiastic meeting
was held. The Rev. J. M. Fridy presided
and presented President Matthews,
LaCoste Evans, iMayor Wright,

After indulging in a ham sanwich,
the party drove out for Union. The
run was made in short order, though
tnere had Deen some rain ana tie roaas
for a portion of the way were a little
heavy, but on arrival at Union the
party was entertained by the chamber
of commerce witn luncn ana a meeting
was held in the public square, over
which Senator Gordon Hughes presided,
and he presented Gal. Watson, B.
C. Matthews, J. Henry Harms, Z. F.
Wright arid T. W. Coleman.
The next stop was at West Springs,
where Col. Watson, Dr. Harms and
Sheriff Blease made short and stirring
The party rolled up to Glenn Springs
about sundown and after parking the
cars for the night enjoyed a delightful
luncheon delightfully served by the
lady members of the Glenn Springs
Community club. (There were sandwiches
of all kinds and hot coffee and
ice tea and the luncheon was greatly
enjoyed. After the social hour an -ad
dress of welcome was spoken by Mr. L.
J. Williams, who is spending the summer
at this famous resort, and then
Col. Watson took charge of the meet
ing and enthusiastic speeches were
made by the visitors and local people.

After a good night's rest and an
early breakfast at *6lenn Springs, I left
for Spartanburg, with the view of com
ing on nome Deiore tne spartanDurg
meeting, but ti':e rest of those in my
immediate party desired to remain
over for the meeting, and we remained.
It had rained some on Friday night in
that section and the outlook was for
heavy roads and hard driving, but, on
the contrary, the rain just made the
road fine and it was fine all the way
back to Laurens. From Laurens down
there f~.ad been no rain and the dust i
was in evidence.
Aj. Spartanburg the party was taken
in charge by the chamber of commerce
and Paul Moore, the efficient secretary.
The meeting was not held until 12
c ciocl;, waiting on the band from
Ui.'ion, and some of the Union continent.
but when it was called to order
by Paul Moore the public square was
lined wit): people and there was genuine
enthusiasm and rousing good
speeches were made by Col. Watson,
B. C. Matthews, Mayor Wharton, La
Coste Evans, J. Henry Harms. Col
Watson was speaking when I left at 1
o'clock. The chamber of commerce
seived a nice luncheon in their rooms
and everything possible was done tc
snow that ti-is city is interested in the
buiiding: of this road. Most of the New
berry party returned at Spartanburg
or Glenn Springs. Dr. W. G. Mayes
and the party in his car and iMr. A. P
Hurt and the party in his car went or
to Hendersonville. They were joined
by several cars at Spartanburg.

from every view point. There were nc
accidents- or car troubles of any kinc
on the trip going over, not even a tire
puncture or a blowout. Col. Watsor
on j is big car did have some little
trouble with one of tLe wheels of his
car. We have heard of no trouble or
the return trip.
The roads, especially in Xewberrj
county, have improved perceptibly
since this agitation began of the Appalachian
highway, and when we onc<
get to real work on the building o
this road we expect to see one of th<
best roads in the State. It needs wid
ening and grading down ana nnmg n
at several places.
There have been good rains betweei
Newberry and Spartanburg and as '<
rule the crocs are looking fine anc
especially is this true of the sectioi
in Spartanburg between G!enn^ftf?ing<
and Spartanburg. Some of the Spar
tanburg roads are very fine and thei
t-ere are some that are not so good
and I guess that is the case almos
everywhere. But if we in Newberr;
could just get it into our head tha'
we can not build roads with grass anc
weeds and that the roads should b<
wider and the ditches should not rui
in ti:e'middle of the road, we woulc
have better roads than some of th(
others, but we are coming and we expect
very soon to see a whole lot o]
the best roads in the State right here
in Newberry county. rE. H. A.
