The people ou GreOT,wood are always
alive when it comes to dorng some4hit?g
that wilV put their t-iwii on the
may, and for this spirit they are to I
?>e commended. If there is a railroad
<o-' a trolley line or a national highway
scouting around anywhere the
"people 01 m;s "ve town iiinneuiaieiy :
get busy and make united efforts to!
"bring it their way, and they have been'
remarkably successful, and for the
reason that they pull together for the
town, and they have demonstrate!
that it pays to get all the railroads
they can. These various railroads
have made the town^ and the people
are not afraid that a little town will
spring up, and that there will be a
store or two built, and maybe some ,

<one who will sen a paper 01 yma vu?,t
might have been sold by some mer- 1
chant in Greenwood.
The point of this is that these same j
people are now going after one of the j
mountain highways and making efforts
to divert it from Columbia and 1
^Newberry and the other towns along *
the way and to have the highway from '
Florida and Augusta come via Green >
wood to Greenville instead of by Co- s
lumbia and then by the Piedmont high- 1
way or the Appalachian to the moim- (
The road from Augusta to Columbia
-we understand is a good one. From

The former to Spartanburg and the c

little, if any, .further from 'Newberry ^ ^
"to Greenville than it Is from Green- j.
wood to Greenville. And there is no t
comparison in the natural condition ?
or the road. Prom here to Green- 1

-Glenn Springs is being made one of
the best^roads tn the State, and the ,
distance from Newberry to Spartan- e
t)urg is about the same as the dis- n
?fcance to Grelnville. The road from T
3iere to Columbia is fine with the ex-. ^
^ception. of about five mile* from Little
""Mountain to Chapin and from Pros- q
3>erity to Little Mountain. What we
are writing this ?:or is to see if we
cannot interest the people of Xewber- ^
Ty and Prosperity and Little Moun- a
tain and Chapin and Columbia and p
Laurens and Clinton and Spartanburg ^
and Union and Whitmire and all tlie t(
rest of us around here to get behind ^
the supervisors of Lexington and ^

the people to get together and make 0
some effort to have the main his:hwav _
from Florida around bv Columbia and ?
then over tlie Piedmont or the Ap- t]
palachian highway to the mountains, 0
instead of going iv" Greenwood^ or if
the Greenwood people want to get ^
and do get a good road that way let us g
Uiave one just as good or a litt-e bet- o
ter, and then the tourists may take p
their choice. But to secure this travel jj
there must be something done to the
sections of the road to which we have c
Or if the Florida tourists did not v
care to go by Columbia to reach the
mountains they could come ifrom 'Au- v

that is a fine road now all the way to t:

How would it do to have a meet- n
ing at some convenient point along *
the road and get representatives pres- c<
ent from all these communities and rr
ihave some conecrt of action. It would s
fce a good advertisement and a great s;
thing for the country to have one good 1<
oad from the capital to The moun- t
iiins. Lot Greenwood uui:d the road <
rom Johnston to that city and on ;
j Greenville, but let as take heed i
md lake notice and baild one also
from Columbia on .to the mountains,
and make it so attractive that the
people who travel will stand up and
take notice of it, and they will be
coming this way. The travel by automobile
is growing all the time and
whenever the tourist comes along he
leaves some money in the community.1
And then we like to see him.
These things are not coming your
way. If you want them you must
wake up and go after them.
If we had some sort o." chamber of
commerce we could go after them

NEWBERRY AND GREENWOOD.
Editor E. H. Aull, of the Newberry I
Herald and News, revives a near-joke
about Greenwood in the days of the
dispensary at Abbeville in connection j
with the editorial in The Index last!
week that Greenwood could secure a |
revenue of probably $5,000 a year tax j
on whiskey shipments, if such a tax is 1
legal. This near-joke, like the mother-in-law
joke is as old as the hills.
It was told on prohibition towns in
^laine fifty years ago. See old periodicals
of the period. Go back further
if you like.
Comparing Greenwood with Newberry
the Colonel is probably correct
is to the number o: packages. Silver (
Street could probably say the same
:hing about itself as compared with <
s'ewberry or Greenwood could say the
same thing about itself as compared
ivith Columbia. There is some differ-! <
mce in the size of the towns and th? 1
imount of business. 'See freight re
:eipts, Dans deposits ana otner tnings j
o show the volume of business. iCom- j
ng right down to bras tacks, Th^ In-! ^
lex is willing any day in the week to
ompare Greenwood with Newberry in j
he matter of whiskey shipments or'
tny other form of misbehavior. We
ire not playing the Pharisee but there '
ire certain forms o>. immorality that,1
;annot be hid. 1
The Newberry Herald and News jc
lid not comment on the fact that three
reeks ago Greenwood's mayor had a ^
irace of dctectives here to hunt down <
>lind tigers and these men after two <
reeks' work reported that they could ?
rot gnd any violators and said that *
t was one of the most law abiding,1

Incidentally the figures on whiskey c
bipments here were secured from the a
xpress company's agent. It would t
ot have required much energy /lor o

ie figures for Newberry in the samt h

The good brother of The Index E
ikes the matter too much to heart.!C
i7e made no comparison of the law-1 p
biding or misbehavior of the good i
eople of Greenwood with Newberry, s
ut we would not object in the least v
d the comparison or fear the results. 1
'one of us is good, no not one. We
iiink a whole lot of the people of a
Greenwood, and we admire the spirit
f its citizens and have frequently s
eferred to their enteprise and the ~
ood community spirit which actuates ^
hem, as an example to others "worthy G
f imitation and emulation. f
But, to come down to hard tacks, i
on't you think, honest now, that 500 2
allons of whiskey a week is a pretty
;ood supply for a town that has had
rohibition for a half century? Even (]
i it is so much larger than Newberry, t
As to the shipments at Newberry, 3

lent from the express office, ttfough ?
re did not request the exact figures. ^
If there is 110 illicit sale in Green- 1
rood then the good law abiding citzens
must Obe consuming a pretty a

rying to make is that such a quan- ^
ity would scarcely argue in I'avor of t

or illegal purposfs. We are personally
very ionci of ihe <i icon wood people,
and would not ha-.e you leave the
impression that we intended to say
anything, even suggesting in a remote
degree the idea of carping criticism.

SHADOW LIFTED FROM HOME OF
HOPE LOST TOO SOON
Mrs. D. G. Free Regained Health in
Almost Miraculous Manner by
A home made happy, a life given
renewed strength ana rene from suifering
which had continued six years
and which had reduced-her health almost
to that of an invalid?that is the
result of Mrs. D. G. Free's taking Tanlac,
the Master Medicine, according to
the statement given by her husband,
who is proprietor of the D.*G. Free
Furniture Co., of 1430 Assembly St.,
Columbia. "I have spent at least $1,000
to secure relief for her, but Tanlac
is the only medicine which has
given her relief," he declai<tl.
"I sometimes believe JTanlac is the
rnedicinc the Lord sent her," added
the grateful hu6band. "I shall always

is a wondert.'ul medicine. I intend
sending my mother several bottles for
she needs it. j
"My wife suffered terribly with indigestion
and for six years she was
supposed to be threatened with dropsy
&f the stomach which caused her constantly
increasing suffering. She had
no appetite, and was confined to her
bed the greater part of the time. She
employed servants to do all her housework.
When she 'began taking Tanlac
?tfrs. Free was a physical wreck,
md seemed steadily becoming worse,
iespite all thai medical scicne-er seemed
able to do for her, I was spending
m average of fifty dollars per month
or medical services for her.
"Wo had finally come to the conclu}ion
that heij case v:as 'beyond relief.

Seeing Tanlac bo extensively recomr.ended
for stomach troubles, she deeded

"After she had taken two bottles,
the servants were discharged, and
Irs. Free began doing her housework,
omething she had not done in years,
ler appetite is good now, and she eats
.nything she wants. She is regaining
weight rapidly, and her pallor has
>een replaced by a rosy color. She
>ears little resemblance to herself as
he was a month ago, and she is in

"It is almost unbelievable that any
nedicine could bring such wonderful
esults, but ITanlac has done so in the

jraised too highly. She is now taking
ter third bottle."
^oilliiieinmg on tins euuuiseuicui,
r. W. Galvon, State agent for Tanlac,
said: "Such statements as this, tellng
of marvelous relief brought by
ranlac. should convince the thoughtful
of the medicine's^ merits. Tanlac,
vhich is a combrfant of 'disorders, a
ronic, appetizer, and invigorating, is
cviiat hundreds of ailing persons need,

digestion and assimilation of
food, vitalizes the blood and brings
