Friends of Long Ago.
1 cat one night beneath the mazda's glow
And penned a .'orso on "Friends of Long Ago."
"Ah! Tell mo where you aro tonight," I wrote
With tear dimmed eyes and choking, tightened
My verses finished, sped they on their way
And they were published, just the other day.
At yesterraorn the mailman's double ring
Awakened me from dreams of balmy spring.
My letter box was stuffed and flowing o'er.
A dozen missives lay upon the floor.
A nameless Joy, a wild, ecstatic thrill
Swept o'er me as I realized that Bill
And May, Clyde, Jack, Ned, Roy and Ruth and Joe
And all thc- other friend.! of long ago
Had, each and every one, sat down to write
And tell their old chum where they were that
Tho Bev'rond Haskln's boy, long-legged Joe,
Gives tango lessons now, at ton per throw.
Dear little May, the shrinking violet
Becamo a window-smashing suffragette;
While ragged Ned, who eft had naught to cat,
Has just cleaned up a million hucks In wheat.
Old Jake, who blacked my eye with fine effect,
Now touches me by telegraph,-collect.
And Clyde, who woro long curls till he was eight,
Hau just knocked out tho champ, Young Kid Mc
And Roy, tho smartest boy in town by far,
Now gathers.nickles on a Broadway car.
Poor Bill. I feared that he'd go wrong some day
He's in the senate now,-perhaps to stay.
Whi'n Ruth, my sweetheart once,-egegH these
Sends photos of her kids-e.sd clx are twins!

ALUKA OY BOAS!INC OVER ANDERHON.
Tile delegation from this county, and tbe citizens
of Anderson und of the county at large, would do |
well in considering th?> matter of bonds for road (
work fr the county, lite erfect that its failure of t
passage would have on the county at large, and the (
distinct ad vantage it would give Greenville County ,
over Anderson. Greenville County is not at all
slow to recognise this, and is already commenting
on the powerful leverage this would give business ,
Interests of Greenville County. This sentiment 1B
voiced in the following editorial appearing in yqB
terday's Greenville News:
Thc paved highway? which Greenville
County will have within two years, will make
this the undisputed leader among the coun
ties of the Piedmont section. Where good
roads are, there will be good school atten
dence. more sociability, more prosperity.
People from other sections of the country
who uro In search of a home, will look for
that community which has good highways.
People who live in such a community will
have little cause to wish to live elsewhere.
Greenville County has the national- advan
tage. We shall have the other kind oi advan- h
tages before long.
The average man of this county would be
surprised to know what extensive comment
the action of the delegation bas caused
throughout the State. Men in all communi
ties talk of thc good roads move, and so far
asi this paper has heard, there is little but
. commendation for the Rood roads propagan
da. Greenville city will become a hub of
trade when the roads are built. Gi eon ville
County, nnd other counties v>f this section,
will have a readier market for their wares.
The prosperity will reach all classes. The
million dollars which will bo invested will
bring in un mini dvldends which far moic
than Justify the expenditure.
Wc apprehend that tho great stumbling block in
the way of our delegation's acting on this matter,
is not submitting it to a vote of the people. This
is rut Iff a nt liing departure from accepted cus
toms, and is likely to subject the Greenville dele
gation to severe censure, and would also subject
the Anderson delegation to equally severe criti
cism. Desperate diseases demand desperate reme
dies. The roads in Anderson County need to be
made durable und lasting. To defer this acticn,
and probably to lone it. will mean that there shall
be delays and continued IOBBCS. It is, therefore
if ever such be the case, proper that immediate
action be taken. As the Greenville News again
Should the bond issuo have been left to a
vote of tho people? It would have been de
feated. In all probability, if it had been left
to the voters. And having once been re
ferred to tho nubile, it wm d have beon more
or loss binding upon subsequent delegations
to take similar action. In the meantime,
Greenville County would have continued to
flounder in the mud for some five or ten
years to come; wasting money each, year for
temporary road work. . .
To have played the game of politics In Its
accepted form, the delegation should have
ordered a reference vote on the bond Issue.
But tho delegation has risen above playing
the game, and has acted with initiative. Tbe '
votera nr.-, :?.fipo?ed to elect men who have
sense enough to know what to do. These
men are net to bo tied band sud foot, and
robbed of all initiative. This road matter
was an emergency question. The county ls
vastly dammed by the condition of the roads.
The came condition night recur again next
winter. All know that something should
have been done. Yet had the bond issue been
left to a vote, we should probably have
quailed before lt Bot now that the delegation
has taken the step, this paper believes the
majority of people are glad of the action.
The roads are essential. We all know that.
Bo why delay? The delegation's action was
"nervy," but the men who represent this coun
ty were acting in accordance with the best
principles ot community development. There
was no chance to go wrong along this line.
Good roads have never failed to bring pros
perity, never failed to augment the value of
property, to save time, stock and vehicles. It
is a truism to say that good roads are val
uable. Everybody knows that. The delega
tion knew it. and so knew lt was acting in
accorda ice with accepted and proved truths
of what ls best for s community when the
million dollar highway system was decir*
Circumstances must often govern the ac
tion of a delegation. Circumstances must
determine whether or not an election should
be held to fill some office, or to decide upon
a bond issue. A delegation which ls glided
by circumstances will commit actions which
are sometimes a trifle inconsistent upon the
surface, but so long ss our representatives
nA>ir vvith the r !.*!:* *""* ?.*-- -?-?* - -
that sud, most of us are reasonably well sat
isfied. In this road question, the end wtU
justify the means, and it Jr tho and, after all,
that wo are most interested In. Had an elec
tion been ordered, not half the noople would
have understood the question. They would
have had nightmares about increased taxa
tion and poverty. Th? delegation understood
tho question; knew that taxation would not
lie appreciably increased, and that Immense
- ' benefit weefd accrue. Knowing this, the dele
v gatton had the nerve and wisdom to act.

ECONOMY AND FERTILIZER DAY.
An important meeting will be neld at the court
nouses of all the counties Saturday, pursuant to a
ali made by Governor Manning in a proclamation
setting uside thisasa "Fertiliser and Economy Dav."
On this occasion tho people will assemble and rea
son together as to how they may safely and wisely
use commercial fertilizers this year, and as to how
they may be able to economize and add to their
store means. These raee'.inga are to be held in con
junction with the work of the county farm d?mon
stration agents, and these officials will be present
and distribute literature on the subjects to be dis
Prof. J. X. Harper of Clemson College has pre
pared a very helpful bulletin on the subject ''Use of
Fertilizers Under Present Conditions;" and Rev.
W. H. Mills and Prof. W. H. Borton of Clemson
College have written a treatise on "Economy in.
South Carolina." These gentlemen are earnest
students on conditions in this State, under present
environment, and what they say will bs read with
interest. Both these subjects are of vital Interest
to the people of the Stute just now, ard there
should be a general attendance upon these meet
ings and practical and helpful plans should be
worked out as to the conditions confronting the
people of the country.
No question is causing more anxious thought
just now among the farmers of the State, and of
the South, than that of using fertilizers for the
present crop year. Many debts contracted last year
for fertilizers have not been paid, and even if the
farmer could get credit for an additional supply,
it is a question whether or not it would be wise for
him to incur tho additional expense. But this is a
debtnble question, and the best thought of the peo
ple should be given to the correct solution of it
These bulletins will be most helpful.
LAZY FARMERS, DON'T READ THIS.
The United states Department of Agriculture, the
state boards and tho experts air over tho country
aro urging the farmers of America to cultivate
every available acre during the coming year. The
war in F?rope assures the sale of almost every
thing that can be raised. Every article that is ex
ported to feed the soldiers and the citizens and the
stock of Europe means Just that much less for
home consumption, therefore, even with big crops
of everything, the prices will be high. If lt is not
a good crop year the farmer will at IcaBt raise
enough for home UKC and will not have to pay the
high prices that will prevail. Utilize every avail
able acre for grain, grasses and vegetables. In
many sections farmers aro urged to try a double
acreuge of potatoes. It should not bo necessary,
under proper conditions, to Import potatoes into
any agricultural county. Put tho hens and the
turkeys to work and give them a square deal.
Raise pigs, cattle and horses In as 1 rge number?
as the accommodations of the farm will justify and
any losses that any farmer, planter or rancher may
have sustained last year will be more than made
good. The war in Europe may laat for months or
years, but while it continu?e there will be an active
demand for everything we produce, iboul ; the
war end this week the nations engaged will need
all our surplus products for a year at least. Take
our advice, for once, and do not permit good,
tillable land to He idle in 1016.

THE BOARD OF REGENTS. /
A hospital under Lie administration of a superin
tendent to the governor scarcely requires a board
of regenta. A board of regenta that may be ap
pointed during the term .of a governor is pretty
sure to he subservient to that governor's whim.
In South Carolina the term of governor ls by law
two years; by custom it is four yean-or so hss
been in lau .:r timon
The tendency in this Democratic ?tate is to re
strict the powers of the exacutive. Wo hope the
tendency will persist. That tho State hospital can
be more efficiently controlled by a board of regents
Utan by the governor scarcely requires argoment
tor ita support.
A board of regents composa ot mecer? ap
pointed, znn at a time, nt ia<crviUs of two years,

Messrs. .lohn and Albert ?ienn, sons

miles. At a point near the home of

up by Mr. R. 8. Harbin and carried as
far as the residence of Mr. Thomas

work was taken up and carried for a
considerable distance by Mr. J. L.

a split log drag, but he did some very
effective work v ith a steel harrow.

The speaker ls a very eminent authority. He says:
"Your advertising-If lt Is advertising worthy of the name

"Tour advertising ls,a bigger factor In your business than
your location-and you'll move lt down a back street or wipe.,
your advertising location off the city map because you're not
