X'tbid HE ROAD.
We publish a article from Ander
son about tle yXteaision of the pick
ene Raflroitiu t that point. This is
agitation in the right direction and a
consumation that is to be devoutly
hoped for. May it materialize.
The extehtion of the road means
much to Pickens, much to Anderson
and much to all points along the line.
Much to Anderson because it opens
up a good scope of country to her
merchants and another outlet and a
connection, by a convenient schedule,
with the Southern Railway; it means
much to Pickens for it gives her
railroad facilities that will benefit her
a great deal by giving a through ser
vice from the South and Florida
points and will have much to do with
making this a fine resort 4ectiun; it
adde imuch to the importance and ad.
vantage of Easley, fo with the con
nectiou of the 0. & W. 0. Ry. at
Atnderson, froighL rates would cut an
item, because goods to her merchants
could be routed over the Seaboard
Air Line, besides the increase of
trade this road would bring within
her borders; it means much to the
intermediate section by opening up
their territory and making a market
for their products.
By all means let's work to extend
the Pickens Railroad on to Anderson.
How does this proposition strike

Instructions have been sent out
from the postmaster general in regard
to a late order of the pestoffico do
partmeut concerning box rent, it,
which the following language is usta:
"No box can bu assigned to the use
of aly individual, faily, firm, cor
pora'.,ion or, public offlicial until rent
thereon has been paid in advance foi
one quarter or the unexpired portion
of a quarter. - If box renters do iot
renew their rights to boxes in use by
them by the payment of rent bolort
the 10th of January, April, July and
October, you must close their boxfE
against thom, placo their mail in thl
general delivery and rent boxes form.
erly Used by them. No exctption tc
this rule will be permitted." Boi
renters should comply with this order
and save themselves annoyance and
the postmaster embarrassment. It
you desire to retain your box have
the courago to inform the postmaster
and pay up.
The postoffiw deal)rttmn'ut has
made a nflw ruling on mail matter
addressed to patrons on rural routes
which wil1 bo of great benefit in this
country when the reorganization of
the systo'u goes into effect this fall.
Under the new ruling p)ostmasters
are allowed to forward papers as well
as mail matter from one oflice to an
other where the person addressed is
on a rural route. In tihe many
chianges from one postomice to another
that will result when the new routes
are established it will require several
months for tihe patrons to have their
mail prop~erly addressed, and while
there will necessarily be delays, mamil
of every character will finally reach
the party' to whom it wvas addressed.
How many battleships will event

was the answer, and1 the neceseary

tailed as 16 on the Atlantic Coast, 24
oui the Gulf of Mexico and the Carib

and 16 in tihe Phillippines. Seornty
battleships would cost at prevailing
figures about $550,000,000, mom e
