THE 3fT. PLEASANT MEETING.
The second meeting of the county
campaign was scheduled to be held
at Mt. Pleasant in Xo. 3 township on
Friday. The candidates gathered in
full force and there was a good

a good many ladies. And the usual,
barbecue was given, but we were then j
just getting a touch of the gulf
storm and the wind blew and the rain
fell in sheets.
Chairman Hunter was present and
opened the meeting on schedule time,
the speaking being held in the school
l- house. The school house eould not
hold more than a third of those pres'ent
but Candidates Dominick and
* Evans for the legislature got off 1
their speeches in the forenoon, but I
"when the time came for the barbecue
dinner, and it was then not yet
12 o'clock, the makers of the cue
wanted to get the hungry crowd to
the tables before the rain came too
strong so that it might be over with
?that is the dinner part of it?and
Jt was well they did, because soon
the rain grew more and more strong
and so much so that the remainder
of the orators did not get to give the
No 3 voters their views on the burnI
Ing questions of the hour. And it
wag well, because those who did not
f start homeward pretty soon after
the dinner met with a real rain and
wind storm, which prevailed the remainder
of the afternoon.
This is a fine community and should j
have more attention from the authorities
of the county. There is a:
great undeveloped section of the I
county down tliis way, and some of j
the finest people in the State. They i
need better roads and some bridges
across tbe Enoree and some new i
school houses and more enlarged 1
schools. They wil come. i
The legislature provided $2,000, we
understand, to build a bridge across
tbe Enoree at Henderson's Ferr>\
, l)ut it will take about $4,000 to do the
job, and, therefore, no bridge can be I
> / <
fcuilt until the extra money is available.
This bridge would help to open
a fine sect* a of the county, and

reach of Whitmire and would be a
great convenience to a large number
of the citizens of the county, who t
should have som^ consideration from <(
the rest of the county. And then j
they should have a rural graded j
school in their midst. This they shall
have. Th^y have the children and the
school spirit and should have the co- 1
operation and encouragement of the *
school authorities in mis worn,
t Those "who traveled from (Newberry 1
down to the meeting on Friday had ?
a concrete example of what can be *
done by a little cooperation and the '
expenditure of a little money in the c
matter of road improvement, if they
took note of the road from Newberry
to the Gibson place, a distance of ,
nine miles, and then took note of the t
remaining six miles from there to ^
IMt. Pleasant. The first nine miles is
a fine road and in good condition, ^
even in the face of the recent con- (
tinued rains and the rains of Friday, j
The road from there to Mt. Pleasant j
was almost impassable and several j
cars were stuck in the mud. But <
for the work done last year on the ,
Appalachian highway the first nine
miles would have Tteen in the same
condition. If the people on the Ml.
Idfleasant ena wouia cooperate wiui
the supervisor as did the people ou
the Appalachian end he "would give
them the same class of road. It
would be easy. A good rural graded
school down there would help greatly
in the getting of the road. It did
the work at Jolly Street, and it!
would do it here as well. It is won- (
derful what can be done by a little j
cooperation and a little self help, j
And there is nothing that we can:
