"Citizen" JOBII Ashley, of Honea
Path, writes again to The Intelligen
cer in reference to thc good ronds
liond Issue. We deny tho charge that
wo have misquoted Mr. Ashley, "more
or less, either by mistake or inten
tionally." Wc have not misquoted
him at all. Mr.'Ashley*Bays: "You
sold that I had asserted that 1 was In
favor of good roads but wanted them
by direct taxation." What wo said
waa: " Mr. Ashley asserts that ho ls
in favor of good roads, hut thinks that
a direct tax would bo moro to tho
point. .YT st Mr. Ashley said was:
"Now, Dear Editor, don't keep on say
ing we people who are opposing this
mensuro are ngatnst good roads, or
that wo don't want good roads, you
know very well that while we have
splendid roads, we would all like bet
ter ones." . ;. 'Continuing he said:
? Now, Mr. Editor, you say if anyono
he? a better plan to come forward
with ii. Now don't you think if wo
would take all the money that we a.'e
going to pay all these highway coni
-missloners and all thia interest, we are
going to pay from tinte to time and DY
; A pUtECT APPROPRIATION give it
to bur supervisor that In forty years
wo will hato a better system ot roads
' and b? bi a bettor financial condition."
Now we ask. where does'tho mis
quoting come in?- How would the
monoy be raised from a "direct appro
priation" except from a direct tax?
3'he editor o? The intelligencer ad

Another distortion <>f what wc said:
'.Nov.. Mr. Editor, you seem lo talk
like thc whole objection of ns peo
ple in i i.irn a political standpoint."
What we sahl was: '"rho Intelligen

ii'ard it said Unit tho county is being
divided along political lines, and lt
I seems thal those who are most out

The remarks about the pact of the

the cotton mills and cotton oil milla
und the railroads, do not need any
reply. Of course, tlie entire county
ls a unit. Wo have said this and wo
have regretted that there ha3 boon
an effort to array town ngalnst Coun
try in thia matter and In ninny others.
What affects one part of the county
affects the entire county. If, ns Mr.
Ashley says, tho corporations of thc
county arc supported by the country,
then the people of tho country should
feel specially interested in thom.
Judging from tho financial straits
6i>me of them are in. and have boen

the cotton mills and the . Block In

I pity that "Uncle Josh" should have
opposed tliis matter. Had an nppro
! priatio:i of $50,000 been made original
ly, na was contemplated, a court house
could have been costructod in a m.ire
quiet place, and larger. Thc preset
building ls too small und much money
Will have to be spent enlarging it.
Only a few months ago about $1.500
was Bpent on enlarging the quarters
of thc clerk of court, and still there
ls need of more room. Sometimes too
strict economy is bad business, as In
the case of tho court house, and as In
tho case of tho present bond issue. If
it bo defeated ?nd for the causes ns.?,
cribed by thc writer from Houea Path.
? Anderson County must have good
roads if she is to keep up with the
procession of other counties, and to
build them will cost money. No bet
tor time cnn bo had than now for
building them, and no better method
than the bond Issue.
"Unelo Josh" would hardly believe
tho editor ot Tho Intelligencer when
ho says that the prime, consideration
he han in favoring tho bond issue for
good roads is to give th? people of tho
rural districts the same, advantages of
transportation that aro enjoyed by the
people of the towns and cities. Tho
editor of Tho Intelligencer was raised
tn the i|>untry and'on a small farm.
He "knows how much Inconvenience ls

Dut as to the attraction itself: Plot
enough to enable it. if necessary, to
stand on its merits as a comedy with
out the musical embellishment; lines
that have; plenty of snap and a suffi
cient seasoning of real humor; songs
and choruses that won repeated
encores; men that look the part in
stead of resembling overmillinered
"willy boys;" girlB who have good
looks, voices and the knack of using
both without in any degree verging on
the immodest-these arc some ot the
Ingredients that go to make ''Lady
Luxury," the kind of medical comedy
everybody can enjoy without acquir
ing a had taste in the inou:.\. The
book, by Rida Johnson Young, is pyod
enough to stand alone, and the music
that William Schroeder has written
for lt enlivens almost every other
minute of the two nels.

her twenty-first birthday, she becomes
into the fortune held in trust by her
old p.iiool uncle. Edward. Reared 1A

simplicity, the heiress deciden to "cut

Uncle Edward's effort? to win her

aided and abetted by 9am Warren
Forrest Huff-rancher from Texas,
and the complications which ensue
when Uncle Edward leaves a startling
note and disappears into a secret
