But the independence days of

WHERE THE FLAG WAS BORN.
The small t wo-story hi.uw still

ow Third, Philadelphia, has an
nteresting history. In it the
irst flag containing thirteen
;tars and thirteen str-ipes was

lesign for the flag was from a

MAUNG TIMES PRtOSPEROUS.
Prosperity to a considerable
degree rests upon the whims of
the business interests of the
country and upon the people
If they are optimistic and be
lieve in prosperity and work
faithfully to that end, prosperity
will be with us, regardless of
conditions in other countries.
We are a self-supporting people
and are not dependent upon the
whims or exertiozs of others.
But if we become pessimistic,
and constantly predict disaster
and force ourselves to the belief
that it is to come, then we are
likely to get no more than that
which we predict.
A few people through the con
stant use of their tongues can in
tithe install into the minds of
others the same atmosphere of
gloom that pervades them, and
this is spread to others, and yet
others, until communities and
states and whole nations suffer
from the effect.
But prosperity can be made,
if we want it. It will conme, if we
seek it. It will remain, if we

With your kind permission I would

I want to state in the outset that I am
not a candidate for any office, and not
asking the suffrage of the dear people
at this time. I want to mention one
thing in particular that has been in a
dormant condition, so to speak, in this
county for a good many years. If what
I am going to write about turns out to
be campaign data and picks up suffi
cient interest to be made a real issue
at this coming campagin, I will feel
that I have been amply compen-ated
for this little effort.
From campaign year to campaign
year we have heard would-be represen
tatives say from stump to stump what
they intended to do if the dear people
would send them to represent their
county in the general as.sembly. We
have heard them talk all kind of prod
ists from the most insignificant thing
that has to do with their office up to
things that would come under the
juri.dict.on of the congressman from
this -district. Of course the later
promise being only an error on their
part. He would then pose, think and
un his hanti through his hair to see
if he had left off anything. Oh, yes.

itizens, I favor good roads too. the last

mere dreams of what would happen
when he got over to Columbia, where
ne would hold the house of representa
tives spell bound at his mercy, shed
Lug Lears, over nis eloquence and mas
terful oratory. lie dreamed that under
2onitous like this he would nave rep
resentacaves from all the counties at
ais mercy, and that the good deeds in
:he shape of high cla'ss measures that
would be introduced by his masterful
rain would be passed, and unlike
what was said of JTulius Ceasar- ol old
a Mark Anthony when he delivered
is famous oration at his fnneral, that
as come down through the ages to
nis stood. "-The good that I do will
le after- me, while the evil will be
nterred with my bones.''
You will pardon this little digression
md let us get down to facts as I see it.
We arc very much in need of good
aighways in'this county. I know the
oad question is a dry proposition when
t comes to putting it square up to the
people, it is a question that we have
earned ourselves to think is the func
tion ot the county supervisor and the
insigiticant chaingang. We talk as
hough the supervisor- had many thous
nt negro convicts at his command and
that he is fitted up with large motor
---ueks by which he can move the
enaingang from one section to another
with thle rapidity of a William Henry
Fo d, he of course having a private
flying machine and going ahead to see
what place to move to next.
I e. ant to fess up that I have been
uilty along with the rest' of the citi
enship of giving him my full share of
curing. I hav-e thought before now
that he shouli be made to serve at
least thirty days himself when I would
get stuck in some mud hole. I would
get out by the help of kind fellow and
we both would lambast the supervisor
ad my friend would say that when he
cmi- thriumyn here asking for our
vo~es that he ptromised uswe should
ibare good roaUs and we have not seen
Il Liionce. How many times have I
h~eadulis. You just let him run again
ad we svill show him in this section
what he~ will get. etc. Now isn't this
*Wed,~says sone one, I think he is
sutv and should be out out of office
or not performing his duties.
Friends, we are all mistaken, he is
oly human and has made us a good
otlicer. lHe has done lully as well as
anr ot the rest of us could have done.
Te ti-ouble is simply this. He has
more task than he can uerfor-m with
the little force he has at his command.
Te have something like seven hun
dred miles of public highways in this
county to be worked, so I am told, and
in must cases the majority of the roads
need rebuilding, not merely cutting
ditches and tilling up hoiles, but they
have grown up and have to be reopened
o reimoving the trees ini a good many
istances and then wideined.

me this would be better than paying

a little easier for the time being, in
the long run the extra levy would pos

that twenty thousand dollars would be
all that could probably be spent judic

tion is a delicate question and one that
I do not know much about, we should
use salt very freely in speaking or
writing about a question so near the
hearts of the people.
It is not my purpose in this article
to assume the prerogitive or initiative.
I merelg as a citizen of this county
want to get this before the people. it
is not for me to say what shall be done,

We have al heard quite a good deal

ure as pazsed by the general assembly
at the instance of our delegation from
this county. I do not favor this law as
it does not go far enough and in the
second place it is class legislation
which I am naturally opposed to, I
have no fight to make against our rep
resentatives along this score if they
will just let it die a natural death and
start over next time and give us some
thing more substantial. I am glad the
governor did not sign it, as it might
have hurt the very cause for which I
am contending as it might in the minds
of some surflice for the time being. and
we would still be without good roads.
I fail to see where twelve or fifteen ]
hundred dollars scattered over our 1
many miles of roads would do any good
we haven't many miles that dragging
would do much good.
As I see it this should be the func
tion of the county chaingaug after we
get the roads built, the small chain
gang could easily keep them dragged
and the holes filled up. I am not go
ing to discuss how roads should be
built I am not a civil engineer, I could
mertion how I have been told it was
done in good many States but all this t
will come out at the proper time by the
parties that are given the task who
ever they chance to be.
I hope Mr. DuRant and the other
representatives who ever they be will
get something on foot that will build
us lasting and permanact roads and let
us take our place in the front ranks
from a good road stand point along t
with all the rest of the leading counties
in Eastern South Carolina.
I cannot conceive of anything that
would be worth more to the oitiz-nship
of this county than good roads, and es
pecially to the people that live in the
rural districts. With good highways t
their lands almost double in value,
they can market their produce with I
pleasure, this farm animals carry their
burden doubled and thribled with ease,
they can make xuicker trips, his car is
a pleasure and a great time saver when
it san be run upon good roads, along
with all this will come prosperity, ed- s
ucation and all that is pertaining to
the uplift of the man that lives in the
rural district upon which the State and I
entire nation must depend for its future 1
