improvement of roads is to work

THE Southern Railway Goo
Roads exhibition train took a turi

SINCE the Booker Washingt on

THlE PrexlENs RAILtuoan is
convenience with which a goo<
part of the county could hard I'
d (ispense, after having experienlce
and learned its actual helpIfulnesl
to every feature of business. Ji
fact the people of the section imme.

would feel lost without the daily
coming and going of that accomumo

called ''the doodle", and no pub

EvzxtY dollar saved now means
that much added to the profits
from your labor at the winding up
next fall, and every good day's
work means so much towards the
saving. Jf, in truth, one cannot
see the immediate good resulti of
Judiciouis work, that is still no
reason why constant, dilligcut ef
fort does not bring reaeonjable re
turns. Try it this year, and do

A~s evidence of the general trust
prevailing among fellow-citizens in
South Carolina, aud also of thelac.
cepted wisdom of the system of
trial by jury, regarded as the pal
ladium of liberty, one has only to
note the fact that though the
present jury law is conceoded to bo
ulconstitutional and no inill
charged with crime can be forcel
to trial, yet defendats with s'0
rious charges against them are coil
senting to be tried anI mioreover

Th cons ilum uat ion Of this new en ter

The oxcusos for roads we Joi
patiently tolerate, simply to kee
clear of trosspass charges, are dis

of additional expense to transpor
