It has boon reported that certain
pubscribors to The Intelligencer liuvc
said that if we do not cut out our
comments on the good roads matter
they would'atop their papers. Well,
now, did you ever? Punish a news
paper that way for standing for prog
ress? Surely this was Intended as a
Joke and it is really amusing. Of
cours?, we do not expect everyone who
reads the editorials or comments to
agrcy with them, hut, Hud, you read
them and they will do you good. We
do not agree with the views of many
cf our readers on the road question
and on oth.'r questions, hut we arc not
going to stop sending you the paper
because you do not agree with us.
Why, It hi just what wo expect and
it is natural that everyone should not
agree with our views on this or many
other questions, but we hope no ono
will stop taking the paper because wu
arc in favor-of Rood roads Why, how
would you know what we are saying
about you if you do not read the
paper? Hut, now, honent, would you
borrow your neighbors paper if you

there may come a time when you and
The Intelligencer will stand together
on some other .question. Road build
ing and bond isflites are not near all
this newspaper stands for, and we
shall endeavor to couvince you that
we are right before it is over. We arc
not nearly ready to tako to the tall
tlmber/i yet. but, in the words of the
Immortal Paul Jones: "We have not
yet begun :.-> flgbt." If a little infor
mation hut-is you as bad as that, we
would advise that you skip our "Good
Roads Department" and our editorials
on the bond issue.
WILL THEY NEED COTTON I
It has been argued that landlords
would not permit tenants ro farm
their lands and that tenants would
not care to farm lamia unless they
planted considerable cotton. Quite
recently considerable Interest haB
been shown In this matter, and It
seems that many tenants are anxious
to try the plan of planting other
crops than cotton. The Intelligencer
has received leers' recently from
some negro farmers, showing that
they realize the necessity for diversi
fication of crops. The following let
ter has been received from Tom
Groves, who works for- Mr. John
Linley. He says:
"I am going to try to make a thous
and dollars this year above expenses
for Mr.. Linley, oil the following
crops: 'Corn, wheat oats and pota
toes. I have three shoats and I am
going to make all I can off them, and
I pray that I may have success.

GOOD ?UARS A RELIGIOUS
Today Is Sunday. It is a ehqrch
going day and in all the county there
witl be services iu many entireties,
Sunday schaols will be held la every
church and in many school houaes.
Tho attendance will not bo so very
large In many places, perhaps, on ac
count of tho condition of tho roads.
AH during tho winter thero hive been
many persons kept at homo during
the week and on Sundays because the
roads have not been ?attable for driv
ing several miles to and from chqrcb*.
Then if one drives several Etiles to
church or Sunday school through mud
and fog, he la not In a very good
frame of mind for listening to.a ser
mon, or for taking part in a religious
worship. So tho condition of the
roads have a direct bearing on the
religions lifo, of the community.
Hence; the bond issue, as a means
for aiding peoplo to reach their
church or Sunday school by good
roads. Is a religious necessity, or It
becomes a religious matter. This
statement will be borne out by every
minister who serves a rural congre
gation, end if thb bond issue were 'of:

Congressman Joe Johnson may be
