A TRIP HOME.
We left the okt home in Edgefield,
it -was then, a good many years ago,
fw?hen we came to enter Newberry college.
In fact, we had not lived there
very lon^, because the family moved
-ftv-1 m T/\l 1 -t* rftfrop# R<v>+inr)
otf Newberry only a few years before
we came to Newberry college. We have
made it a rule during all these years
tc visit the old folk as often tas we
cculd, if it was only on brief stops.
The frame is now in Greenwood county,
nnt far fr/vm TYmann and rvnK- si-r mi If1 ?
from Ninety Six. It is one of the
healthiest places we have ever known.
The family has had very little sickness
during all these years. Mr. ani
Mrs. Jacob Luther Aull, the father
and mother, still reside there, and are
cow all alone, though one son, L. B.
Aull, and one daughter, Mrs. A. D.
Timmerman, live close by.
Mr. and Mrs. Aull have gone along.
together on life's journey for nearly j
sixty years, and they have been
greatly' blessed with good health.'
About a year ago Mrs. Aull had a very '
eevere spell, but she seems to have
regained to a large degree her usual
good health, and only recently Mr.
Aull was quite sick, but he is gaining ^
strength and is able to be up and
about. We write this here because J
they have a great many friends and1
relatives in this county who will be j
^ glad to hear from them.
We decided on Sunday, as the day ^
was fine, to pay them a brief visit and j
take their youngest grandson, who is!
yet "without ia name, on his first j
away from home visit to see them
The boy's mother and her sister,
Miss Minnie Amick, and our mascot,
Henry Turner of The Herald and j
News, went along. IWle drove III and ;
made the trip in as good time and as'
comfortable as the condition of the !
roads would permit. We left home in
Newberry after ten o'clock and spent
ithree hours at the old home and returned
to iNewberry before six o'clock.
? That was pretty good time ror in ana
We enjoyed the day and, of course,
they were glad to have us come. We
must say, however, apart from the
fact that this is a healthy place, we
never did become very ioliu ur it as j
a borne, and we would be glad if the
(Id folk would get their consent to
give up house keeping and move away
"with some one of the children. But
possibly it is best for them to keep
the home in tact so long <as they can.
We have very much that same feeling.
i ' ?
The main purpose of this story,
&cwever, is to make an excuse to sav
something of the' roads. The road
*>nTn VAwhprrv to the Deadfall, known
as the steel bridge raad, which. "was
put in such good condition only a
w months ago, is now in great need
of attention. It is washed in holes
and some of the little bridges are in'
had repair. The road from Silverstreet
to the Williams place is better
than the road from here to Silve~-j

Bireeu nuui uic >v micuiiio w
Chappells via Cross Roads church is 1
a fearful piece of road. From Chap-J
pells to the river is better than usual. 1
The work which Supervisor Sample
did on this road in the early summer
is standing very well, though it too'
nppds attention On the Greenwood'
side the road from the river up to the j
Anderson road is in its usual had
condition. Without a great deal of
work this road will always he rough
and bad. On the return trip we came

Boazman place and the iWtatkins
place to the Williams place, and
along here there is some good road.
There should be a good road from
Newberry to Chappells by Silverstreet,
aijd from Newberry to Whitmire and ;
irom Newberry to Little Mountain
and from Newberry to Pomaria and
from Newberry to Kinards and then
a, good road to Maybinton and from
these main highways it would not be
far for any one to travel to reach a
good road. If a little more attention i
could be paid to these main arteries
all the people of the county would!

nf (vnirsp not neelect the i
other roads, but what we mean is;
that if we had some such roads across
the county intersecting each other
all the people could soon reach a main

"ATTACK OX THE PARTY." t
The State Democratic executive
committee must have been nodding ,
wnen it permittee iir. iticney lo pui
upon the records his allegations that
Mr. Manning's nomination was secured.
by fraud or intimidation. The
committee may have thought that the
statement was not worthy of a controversy,
but it should be expunged
from the records or another of equal .
significance presented by Mr. Mannirg's
There is more involved than merely I
one official. The integrity of the 5
primary has been ussailed. And the ?
"protest" came from counties in <
which Mr. Manning did not lead! ?
Was there fraud on only one side?.<;
Did not certain sheriffs, opposed to:,
Mr. Manning offer rewards for evi-;
donee of corruption offer rewards j
c'ence of corruption at the polls? If t
there was such a condition as to war- js
rant the state executive committee in; c
permitting this expression, why was }
rot some action insisted upon? \
This is very clever politics, "but it is
discrediting to the Democratic party.
These statements should have been j
challenged or not permitted without <
proof upon the permanent records i
the party. For there are some who j
accept and believe these statements ?
and this will intensify factionalism in s
the state.?Columbia Record. 13
We think you are correct in part, i
The statements of a member of the t
committee made as were, the state- i
ments of Mr. Richey should have been 1
challenged and if he did not have'
the proof as he claimed "he nad it.
then therecord should not have been
made, but if he had the proof then it _
should have been verified bv the com<
Tiiere are lots of people?good peopie,
and honest people?wlho do not be4
lieve there was an honest election, and
the action of the committee only helps
to fasten that belief the stronger, be- '
cause, it is argued, the committee or i
the majority of the committee was 1
afraid to turn on the light. It is just '
a > George Koester says in the Pied- :
mont in his write-ups of the primary. s
^ "Do you know that the great majority
of Bleaseites throughout the State !
i believe, whether rightly or wrongly :
' ?w+ ortnio at tViic time, that i I
I n C *1111 XLVSlr ** * > ? -,
the methods employed between the
,two primaries to ensure tl*e defeat of
Blease would not all bear exposure to
the broad light of the open day?" And
we might add that there are a great
many who voted for Manning who believe
the same thing, though they imay
not say so. And the Record and other <
daily and -weekly papers seem to be
somewhat worried, because they keep <
writing about it, just like the laibove '
lrom me toecora. .mease nas s<tiu .
nothing and the papers that support- 1
ed him and were friendly to him have
said nothing. They have kept silent
and have accepted the result. No doubt 3
there was fraud and 'money used and | <
irregularities on both sides." If so,1J
why not investigate when a m^mbet ! '
of the committee says that he has the ' (
evidence in his Dossession and in the :
. - - ^ ,q
committee room at the disposal oi
the committee. So far as we are con-'
cerned we have no proof, and we make ' *
no charges^ but w*e have an opinion.!?
If the Record and The State and the .
other Manning- papers are satisfied (j
why keep on writing about the result, j <
To quote again from Koester, ana ^
ho says he is Mannings friend and
voted for him: "It would seem from t
Manning's address of thanks for his j r
renomination that he thinks Blease's; t
following was simply a -conglomera-1 r
tion of people who hoped through his!1
election to trample on the constitution
and wipe their feet on law and order. ^
* * * I tenow tfti# man, btit ^
that speech was worse than a crime, j
because it was u blunder." And yet
they talk about wiping out factionalism
and getting together.
To get back to the statement of the,
Record, if it was "clever politics" and j
the committee to disapprove the allega-1
was playing politics why did not the I
committee call his bluff and make
him show his hand.
As the Record says in another edi-j
torial on the same subject, "there'
are people in the State who will be-j
lieve the allegation," as made by Mr. j
Richey. It was not incumbent upon1
the committee to disaproe the allega- j
Hon hut the ctmmittee could have i
put it up to Mr. Richey to produce the |
proof, and if he failed then that should j
have ended it. Where Mr. Richey'd
proof came from, we do not know.
Only two more days in which to revive
a good newspaper like The
Berald and News for a whole yearj
:or only one dollar. Strange how few I
people are taking advantage of thoj
-cniarkable offer we made.

wanted to pass, and undertook to do

to get^ 'by. We started to turn to
the right to let the car 'by and at the
same time it oame bulging up on the

Somehow, as a good friend of Mr. 18
Cooper, we can't believe he will endorse
this editorial of the Index. We
may misconstrue it. hut as we reao
it the statement is that Mr. Cooper

?enl iniw tuc c<uupcugii ior ine purpose
of defeating Blease and with no
purpose or intention of being elected
himself. We do not believe tbat he
would be a party to any such deal.
And we feel that the editorial of the
Index does him an injustice. We belie
e that te went into the race with
the intention of winning, and as wo
said frequently, if he had been in the
second race with either Blease or
Manning he would have been a winner.
As results show if he had remained
out of the race and only Blease and
Manning had been running Blease
would have been an easy winner.
Any way you look at it Manning has
won no big victory. But surely the
Index does not mean to be understood i
as saying that Bob Cooper permitted
