"We hwre heard less of the State
campaign this suciiucr than for several
sunfcaers^ .The people- do not
seem to be discussing it one way or
the other end we believe that it
means that they are thnking and that
they are coing to. vote from their -otvji
best judgment tiis year rather than
from prejudice or partisanship. And
it Is not 'going to play any important
part in the county races. We want
to see the voter cast his ballot for
the men he thinks test fitted for the
positions XO Yv^uicn xiiey a-spire ramci
than because the -candidate is for tlhis
man or that man who is running for
eome State office.
The daily papers have not iliad
r uch to say about the State campaign
and have had only brief reports of
tie meetings. We have observed

daily papers, but some of them are so
colored that we kave placed very little
confidence in the value cf the information
which they pretend to
give. Each forecast so colors the report
to suit its side that "we have not
placed much confidence in any of
them. Practically all of them place
Blease in the second race for governor
cither with Manning or Cooper.
"We are frank to admit that we
know practically nothing c.bout it,
"but from reading the Cooper papers

will be in the second race .with
either [ManLing or Cooper. We saw
Cooper the other day in Columbia?
the only one of the candidates that
we have seen and that was by accident?and
ihe says tbat he is sure to
be in the second ra<Se with either
Blease or Manr*ng and as we see it
either lie or Manning will be in the
second race with Bleach
The Manning papers have commenced
their broadside editorials in
ihis favor "which to our mind means
that they are not so'cocli sure that he
is going to be in the running. We

That is a fine piece of road from
Newberry to Jalapa and we are told
it is the same all the way to the Laurens
line at Kinards. This is due
largely to the assistance given the
road by the people -\viho live along the
line in the use of the split log drag.
Mr. Henry Parr has -done a good deal
of this kind of work on the road
from his place to Newberry and
Summer Brothers from Jalapa this
way to Parr place. It is an evidence
of public spirit which is commendable.
This road should be widened,

world it is a fine road. This is a portion
of the Piedmont highway and is
used by a great many tourists. fWe
wish very much that we could bring
our .people to see the advantage of
keeping a good road from Little
- Mountain to -Newberry and from there
on to Kinards and also to Whitmire.
These two are very important ioads
and a great many tourists -use them,
and all of them leave some money
"with our people as they pass through
and then it is a great advertisement
for Newberry for these travelers to
go away talking about the good roads
Our old III has, been vibrating
"beautifully since we h&id iher brought

not have any opposition for reelection,

remarkable one. There are still- four
brothers living. Three of then: are
beyond SO years of age and the other
is about 76. Uncle Luke is 81, Mr. D.
