"My Country 'Tis of Thee, Sweet Land

And how it flies today
In your land and my land

Snow-white and soul-white
The good forefathers' dream.

With stars to gleam aright

TRANS. MOUfNAIN ROAD
sBqtore -th Pickens county, road be
issue' actwas passed by the legislatut
Supervisor Craig and the county co
nip*inners had decided to build a go
Cad fon Pickens across the mountai
to the North Carolina line. We are n
sure whether the creation of our hig
way equamission takes the building
this road out of the hands of the sups
visor, but if it does we trust that tl
commission will go ahead and see th
this road is built. Pickens county nee,
Oconee on one side and Greenville
the other side of us both have go<
roads across the mountains into Wes
ern North Carelina, but we are reliab:
informed that the proposed road frol
Pickens would be a much nearer wai
from Greenville and all points below, I
the heart of the summei' resort distrii
of North Carolina and it would cause r
end of summer travel thru here.
Besides this, our people in the uppE
section of the county need this road an
it is due them. A good road opening u
the northern section of the county t
easier travel would be a benefit to th
entire county and would give the peopi
of the entire mountain section a goo
outlet to markets for their produce.
A gentleman told us the other da,
that he knew of a recent case where
Western North Carolina farmer hauler
a load of potatoes to Walhalla and sol<
them to a merchant there. The Walhalla
merchant sold the potatoes to a Green
ville concern and the Greenville concert
shipped the same potatoes to Picken,
and sold them here, and Pickens is neare:
the farmer who raised the potatoes that
is Walhalla. The Pickens people wh<
bought the potatoes not only had to pa;
the original price for them, but had t<
pay the middlemen's profits, besides the
freight charges from Walhalla to Green
ville and then to Pickens. This is onl3
ne incident which shows the need of
an outlet into North Carolina. If wt
had that good road a great amount o
mountain produce which now goes some
where else would find its outlet thrt
