will not put off depositing mail for the

those contemnplating sending off mail
would supply themselves with stamps
in advance,~ and affix them before
bringing them to the office. The rate
for packages that contain no writing
is one cent an ounce. and for each
fractional part thereof, if packages
contain writing the rate is two cents
per ounce and the fractional part
thereof, in other wvoros anything
weighing over one ounce and less than

It Takes Money to Build Roads.
The condition of some of the roads ir
the county is provoking complaint, but
instead of those complaining to the
proner authorities-the county board
of commissioners, they bring their trou
bles to us, as though we kept on hand
a supply of shovels, and had the time,
together with the inclination, to go out
on the roads needing repair. to do the
work. One ,entLeman approached us
last Monday and wanted to know why
we did not get an appropriation from
the legislature to have the roads in this
county worked the same as Sumter has
done, but Sumter has not done so, nor
has any other county gotten an appro
priation from the legislature for road
building: it takes all of the time of the
legislature to make appropriations for
the gratification of the trustees and pro
fessors of the state educational institu
tions, it has not the time to consider the
general welfare, such as the building up
of the public highways, that the coun
try at large may be more rapidly devel
oped, but when it comes to creating new
jobs, and the erection of a lot of unnec
essary conveniences for the colleges,
the legislature is right on the spot
promptly. But the roads need atten
tion, and the only way they can get it is
to spend money, now. where is this
money to come from if not from the
taxpayers: let the proposition be made
to levy a tax for the building of the
roads, the taxpayer will object on the
zrouud that we are too heavily taxed
now. and cannot stand additional taxa
tion: then the next best way to get the
roads built, is to get the people inter
ested to consent for a bond issue to raise
a sufficient amount of money to put the
roads out by contract to a road buildin2.
company. It will take not less. than
$100,000 to properly build the roads of

take a two nill levy for a long term of
years, the question is then, are the peo
p e of this county. and especiallv those
who are always complaining about the
roads, willing for a bond issue to build
the roads, if they are, and they will give
to the deiezation the authority we be

Review of the Foreign Commerce of the Uni
ted States During the L,;ar Ending
December 31, 1911.
The foreign commerce of the Uni
ted States in the year about to end
wili show an increase of over 200 mil
lion dollars when compared with the
immediately preceding year and a
larger tot. than in any earlier year
of our commerce. Imports, while fall
ing below those of 1910 in the earlier
months, have, in the closing period
of the year shown a marked increase,
indicating that the total for the year
will differ but little from that of 1910,
which made the highest record in the
histary of the import trade. Exports
are larger than in any earlier year,
and manufactures exported also make
their highest record, reaching ap
proximately one billion dollars in the
calendar year 1911. The approximate
total for the year, based upon the 10
months' record already compiled,
are: Exports, over 2 billion dollars;
imports, 1j billion dollars, of which
over one-half entered free of duty.
Considering the great groups of ar
ticles, the noteworthy charges are, in
the case of imports, a falling off in
manufacturers' raw materials and in
finished manufactures; in the case of
exports, a general increase partici
pated in by all the important groups,
foodstuffs, manufactures and manu
facturers' materials. Comparing the
10 months' movements in the years
named, imports of crude foodstuffs
increased from 118 million in 1910 to
145 million in 1911; while foodstuffs,
partly or wholly manufactured, de
creased from 169 million to 151 mil
lion; manufacturers' raw materials,
from 452 million to 422 million; man
ufactures for further use in manufac
turing increased slightly, from 237
million to 242 million dollars, and fin
ished manufactures decreased from
310 million to 242 million dollars. Ex
ports, on the other hand, advanced
in the case of crude foodstuffs,' from
70 million to 95 million dollars, food
stuffs, partly dr wholly manufactur
ed, from 203 million to 247 million;
manu fact urers' raw materials, from
437 million to 491 million; manufac
factures for further use in manufac
turing from 234 million to 267 million;
and finished manufactures, from 447
million to 531 millicn dollars.
The principal imports of the full
year, grouped according to magni
tude of values will show: Sugar, over
4 billion pounds valued at about 105
million dollars; chemical, drugs, etc.,
95 million dollars; coffee, 800 million
pounds, valued at about 84 million
dollars; hides and skins, 80 million
dollars; india rubber, 75 million; cot
ton manufactures and raw silk, about
65 million each; fiber manufactures.
65 million; wood and manufactures,
50 million; fruits and nuts, over 40
million; block and pig tin, 40 million;
diamonds. 44 million; while copper
manufactures, manufactured fibers,
iron and steel manufactures, silk
manufectures, leaf tobacco and oils,
will each show a total of about 30
million dollars. Art works, furs and
fur skins, and wool will agzgregate
about 25 million dollars each in the
year's imports. Lower prices contrib
uted to the fall in value of imports of
sugar and india rubber, the decrease
in value being far greater than in
quality. Hides and skins show a
marked reduction in quantity as well
as in value of imports. Tin imports
are about the same in quantity bat
much greater than in v-lue, due to
Cotton is still the leading article of
export, its total for the year, over a
half bilion dollars, exceeding the com
bined value of the two great classes
next in rank, iron and steel manufac
tures, about 250 million, and meat
and dairy products, 160 million. The
exports of cotton in 10 months aggre
gated 2,945 million pounds, valued at
371 million dollars, the largest value
in the history of American commerce
and but slightly less in quantity than
the high record total of 3,052 million
pounds exported in the 10 montus of
1905. Iron and steel also made a new
high record in the 10 months of 1911
-206 million dollars, against 164 mil
lion last year. Substantial increases
also occur in other leading articles,
and the complete year will probably
reco d a total export of over 125 mil
lion dollars' worth -of breadstuffs,
over 100 million of mineral oil, nearly
100 million of copper, 40 million of
cotton manufactures, 35 million of
aricultural implements, about 35
niillion of cars and carriages, and 25
million of chemicals and medicines.
Considered by countries, large in
creases occur in the exports to Can
ada, Germany, Netherlands, Japan,
the United Kingdom. Australia and
Belgium, and lesser increases in those
to South America, Cuba, China, and
many other countries. While imports
as a whole decreased, there were in
ressin those from Japan, India,
Egypt, and other countries in Africa.
