Tlie split log drag is a good road
?machine, and could b?? used to great
i.dvantage a great deal moro than ls
true at present in this county. The
suggestion has been made that the
county furnish tho people with these
drags and the farmers would use
them free. A capital suggestion, hut
Are fear that lt would not bo long be
fore the people would begin to ask
that they ho paid for road work. Wo
know of no law to prevent a roan's
making u spilt log drag if ho wants to
drag his road and use it. They are
not at nil expensive and would cer
tainly pay for thc time and material
it would take to construct one. So
if the people would uso them if made
?nd presented, there ls very little be
tween them und the uso of the drag,
except a hit of industry and determi
nation. Some few arc being used in
Anderson County to great advantage.
May their number l?crense.

TOO SI DDKN A tHANOE.
A very thoughtful article waa writ
ten for Tho News and Courier by Mr.
P.. B. Heiser, of Sumter, on a very live
.topic in South Carolina today. He
discusses the matter of credit, and
brings out some thoughts that will be
worth while m this section and else
where. He thinks that a mistake is
being rondo by trying to place tho
people of thc State on a cash basis
too soon. It ls BO complete a chango
from the customs of years that it can
not bo brought about nt once without
some loss lu an economic way. Mr.
Heiser Bays: "A life-long credit Kys
tom cannot bo changed Hi one year."
We know that this ls true, and us Thc
N'ewB nd Courier says commenting
on this fact:
Lands in this State will have to be
planted on borrowed money or they
cannot br planted at all. Suppose a
big acreage Iles Idle what will be the
result? Nb orystal vision ls needed to
forsec what lt must be. It will bo In
thc case of the State just what lt is
in thc caso ot the man who. being able
to do little more than make ends meet
by working all of his time, suddenly
inda himself with work for but half
his time. What happens then? Hts
clothes get ragged and threadbare and
his family ceases to know what P. la io
save enough to ?at.
There are in South Carolina over
halt a million people who work act
ively at agricultural pursuits. Tao
bread of probably two-thirds the total
population is taken directly from the
soil. It has required all the Improv
ed lands we. have to provide these
people with work and a living. Even
eliminating such waste and extrav
agance as have been practiced in the
post tho withdrawal from cultivation
even tor a season of any big area of
land which has been in cultivation
until now ls hound to upset things
seriously. It would demoralise the
labor. It would cut down thc- earning
capacity of Ute ?tate.
On the other hand,- there ls not an
acre of arable land In South Carolina
which cannot be planted profitably lu
one thing or another-provided only
the planting can be financed. It will
require intelligence and diligence to
handle this phase of the matter right
ly, hut lt must be attended to or se
rious lost? tx? . everybody will bo the
consequence. If the old Hebrew plow
man looked back he was likely to get
badly hurt. If an agricultural State
.rion lo stand ?til? lt runs tho same
EASY TO FLOAT,
Il is HO easy to float with the cur
rent uni! du things that others do. The
real lest of manhood comes when one
stands alone, ur in a minority on any
proposition, and hears the brunt of
being different from others. Il is easy,
though, to, sw vn down the stn am-to
l?uat-but Hil. does not develop
muscle. Too many young men are
failures in the world because they are
content to float with the current, and
as a consequence the? aro thrown out
on Ute side of the stream in some lit
tle eddy or pool of still water, wolle
the mau who kicks out and tries to do
. mn.'thine grown strong from the ex
erclse and accomplishes Anally what
could not have been accomplished
One is reminded here of the story
of the two frogs which the dishonest
dairyman dipped up from u spring on
his way to market and pourned into
his milk pail. One of the frogs when
he found he was in auch a predica
ment Buid to lils companion: "It is
no use to try to survive, and I am go
.ng to Just lie still and be drowned."
ils companion remarked: "You can
do this If you want to, but I am going
to try swimming a while." So ho be
gan to kick while his companion sank
listlessly to the bottom of the pail and
was drowned. When the farmer reach
ed market the frog which kicked was
swimming round on r. pat of butter
he had made by his efi'orts singing
" Life on tho ocean wave."
The intelligencer was reminded of
the above by the advice given by a
friend In conversation with the editor
a few days ago, anent the road bond
Issue proposition. He said: "The
most of the people are opposed to the
l>ond Issue, so what is the use for me
to go agt'ust what the majority of
them seem to want, arjd make myself
unpopular. I am going to gel on thc
side of the majority." Floating with
the current. We shall not do this,
hut we propose to stand for good
roads, and for the bond isBtie, as a
matter of pi,nelpie because from what
wo have beru abie to learn, it is right,
and the best thing for Anderson Coun
ty at thlB time. It may be defeated at
the election and Anderson may never
have a bond issue for good roads. If
?6, wo shall submit to the verdict of
tho people, but we hopR to be riding
on a pat of butter the morning of
March 31st singing "Good Roads for
REV. THO, V. CARMAN.
The death of Rev. John C. Carman.
In Spartanburg Saturday night is a
distinct loss io South Carolina. He

he are hard to get along without, and
lils loss will b0 keenly felt by those
who have known him and who love,
therefore, trusted him. Tho positron
of secretary of tho State Sunday

and his work will, even in this short

There is a possibility of arrange
ments hoing made for staging a series
of titree baseball games in this city
between teams representing Trinity
College, North Carolina", and Clemson
College, in tito early part of April.
The matter has been taken up by
tho amusement committee of the

pected that in tho near future the
matter will be settled definitely one
way or tito other.
Trinity and Clemson played here
several year sago and it will be re
called that there was a lar^e attend
ance at tho game. Doth institutions
have friends and ???mer students In

at all of them.
As generally known, the amusement

REGULAR MONTHLY MEET.
ING LAST NIGHT VOID OF
Dr. W. F. Ashmore Reelected for
License on Carnival
City council met last night in reg
ular monthly session and transacted a
considerable amount of business of a
routine nature. Among the more in
teresting mattera before the aldermen
was a proposition looking to the
bringing back to Anderson of George
MyerB. who, it will be recalled, was
tried here last fall on chargea of sel
ling whiskey and who skipped bis
L?iid before other cases pending
against him were tried, it waa re
ported by Myers' bondsman that he
had been located, and that the bonds
man wss willing to go to the expense
of, bringing Myers back here provid
ed council would refund, him some pf
the money he had paid out as a re
sult of going on the man's bond. No
action was taken with regard to this
matter. Another Important matter
was that of placing, a prohibitive
license for the appearance in the city
of a carnival show that made applica
tion for tho right to come here. Still
another matter of Importance wai a
proposition from the management of
the Petroleum Oil company to bear a
portion of the cost of extending the
belgian block pavement from the
point where lt ends on West fiarle
street, down by the Blue Ridge pas
senger depot, across the tracks of the
Blue Ridge Railroad and down Glenn
street to the cotton warehouses of the
Anderson Cotton Mill. This matter
waa rete.red to a special committed
with Instructions to farther investi
gate the matter and report back.
Retails of Meeting.
When council bad opened Mr. C.
M. Quest, local contractor and build
er, appeared and asked to know how
much of the Main street ho would be
allowed to use for placing material in
crrryiag out the contract he holds for
evoking certain improvements In
Hotel Chiquola. The law on thia point
was read to Mr. Guest, bm, as ne
claimed the matter waa still indefinite,
council gave him to naderstand that
he would be allowed to. use as much
of the street and sidewalk/as was
As to Myara Casa.
Ernest H. Cochran, Esq.. represent
ing Mr. W. 8. Wllltford. appeared be
fore council and stated that Mr. Wil
llford had. through the navy depart
ment, succeeded in locating George
Myers, who was triad here last fall
for soiling liquor and who skipped out
before other cases were brought
against him; and that Mr. Williford,
who paid into the city treasury some
$600 as a result ot his having gone on
Myer's bond, wished to know that if
he went to the expense of bringing
Myers bajk here (which would prob
ably cost $350 or $400 would the city i
reimburse him to the amount of thc
difference in the cost of bringing tho
man back here and the sum he paid
the city when Myers skipped his bond.
The matter waa taken up and dis
cussed at some length. It was pointed
out that while Mr. Willlford had paid
the city some $600 on Myers' bond. !
this amount was accepted as a com
promise for some $1,600 in bonds that
he had gone on for Myers. It was also
pointed out that the city would not
try Myers, were he brought back here,
without considerable additional ex
pense, as the witnesses in the case
had become scattered. The matter
was also discussed as to whether it
would not be better for the city to let
matters stand as they are, that is, let
Myers remain aw ?y from here rather
than bring him back here and let the
city face chancea of his fine being paid
by some friend, and Myers again be
coming a resident of the city. After
discussing the matter from various
other ingles, council let th? subject
drop, for the present, at any rate.
Carnival Llcen?e Matter.
E. W. Weaver, of Atlanta, represent
ing the Smith Greater Shows, appear
ed before council with reference to
securing a license for the appearance
here of this show. He went into some

matter latter for final settlement,
council, upon motion of Alderman.
