boys that served overseas acted as
pall bearers. There were many
other young soldiers present and the
way they acted meant we still stand

When James left his home on the
24th of May, 1918, he said, "Mother,
don't worry about me. I am going
through the war and coming back
home to you if it's Cod's will." Bui

GO ,TO ROAD MEETING.
Plan For Shorter Route From Ander.
son to Augusta.
Anderson, June 16.-W. Frank
McGee, W. L., Brissey .and Arlington
F. Fant, secretary of the Chamber of
Commerce, have gone to Calhoun
Falls to attend the good roads asso
ciation in the interest of the Ander
son-Augusta highway. The proposod
route is by Starr, Iva, Lowndesville
and Calhoun Falls, connecting with
the improved, highway at McCormick.
This route will be ten miles shorter
than any other way to Augusta from
the Piedmont section. It would be
included in the state highway sys
tem, and maintained by the state high
way commission. The proposed high
way will go through three counties,
Anderson, Abbeville and McCormick,
and it is :said .that four states are
vitally interet*-ed in the project-.
Georgia, Florida,, North and South
Carolina. It has been indicated that
all three of the counties are anxious
aml willing to do their part in the
building of this road.
The above dispatch is of special
interest to Pickens county, because
the road menrtioncd would form a
link in the good road now being
built from Augusta, Ga.. to Brevard,
N. C.. by way of Pickens, and would
make this reute still more popular
with tourists to the mount.ains from
lower South Cairolin-a. Georgia and
