r. cm Colriniblu to Greenville*
Tim- capilal-to-county crusade for
good roads was materially advanced
by a mass meeting held here Wednes
day nlghl at which representatives
from Rlehland, Lexington, Newberry,
Laurens and Qrconvlllo counties cou
fored and discussed ways and means
lor the construction and maintenance
of n decent highway connecting Green
Messrs. w. c. Sirrlne ami C. 0, Al
len drove down from Greenville and
Dr. L. M. Whaley, the pood roads dy
namo, came up from the lower end to
report conditions as I hey are at | res
ent. Supervisor Lungford of Lexing
ton county sent a communication In
Which he pledged his best efforts to
wards preparing tho twenty-live miles
through ids county.
Solicitor It. A. Cooper of Laurens
was elected chairman of the confer
ence, and s. |<j. Itonoy secretary. In
the twenty or more present from Lau
rens were .1. Adger Smyth. Jr., Clerk
of Court .lohn F. Uolt, Mayor C. M.
Ilabb, Dr. IL K. Aiketi. Supervisor IL
Hnscom Huinlierl and others who are
lutorested in the building of at least
oho good road through the county to
Mai! With, Uftor Which it is believed
the object lesson will result in tho
construction of more miles. When
these links tire joined up Greenville
end Columbia v. ill he connected with
each other, besides affording the cit
izons of each county a good rood to
their respective county seats. Dr.
Whaley reported Ulohland's section
i s already completed from the Broad
liver bridge into the city. The agi
tation for a free bridge has resulted
in a reduction of the toll of 7". cents
formerly demanded, to one of l"> cents
at present. The delegates expected
from Newberry wore unable to teach
here, hill sent assurances of co-opera
tion. Capt. .1. Adger Smyth, dr.. who
rsis the roads as much or mote than
any man in South Carolina, made a
strong plea for concert of action. He
narrated some truthful hut amusing
experiences of a traveler who has to (
find the roads from Charleston, say,
to anywhere in the upper country, due
to the absence of sign boards, and
showed that all travel In these direc
tions are of necessity obliged to pass
through Laurens county. Mr. Allen
of Greenville said he was not the
owner of an automobile but he did
use a horse and buggy a great deal ,
and a good road would be for the
equal benefit and use of all forms
of conveyance. He. as well as till the
other speakers, urged the necessity
of replacing the markers of all main
roads in every county. There Is
more travel between counties today
than in past years when the cross
('rp.'id signs were kept up. Mr. W. 0,
Shrine of Greenville pointed out the
many things a county supervisor was
expected to do ami that the office work
required of him rendered It impossi
ble for these officers to spend as much
time directing fie actual work of road
making its they would till like to give.
Rnch county needed an experienced
rond-mnkor, whether or not he be a
Civil engineer, to stay with the hands
out t:i the sun

matters to responsible people. Mr.
.1. A. Dnlley, treasurer of the orphan
age, is taking charge of the business.
The heads of the various departments
of labor ami instruction are doing
their best to keep the machinery run

Everything starts fresh here on the
first of September. New officers, ma

received and initiated. All Importen!
changes are made in methods of work,

alarmed. In fact this is their oppor
tunity to stand by it as never before.

The Telephone Girl.

her chair, ami listens to voices from
everywhere. She hears all tho gos
pij), she hears till the news; she
knows who is happy and who has
the blues; she knows all our sor
rows, site knows nil our joys; site
knows every girl who is chasing
the boys; she knows of our trou
bles, she knows of our strife; situ
knows every man who talks mean
to his wife; she knows every time
we are out with "the hoys"; she
hears the excuses each fellow em
ploys; she knows every woman who
tins a dark past ; she knows every
man who is inclined 1<> l?e "fast";
in fact, there's a secret beneath
each saucy curl of that quiet, dc
muro-looking telephone girl. It'
tho telephone girl told all that
sin- knows it would turn lutli" our
friends into bitterest foes; she
could sow a small wind that, would
soon be n gale, engulf us in trou

force, would cause half our wives
to sue for divorce; site COllld gol

A Lesson From the CumrJ.
The camel, at the close of day,
Kneels down upon the sandy plain,
To have his burden lifted off
And rest to gain.
My soul, thou, too, shottldst to thy
When daylight draweth to a close,
And let thy Master lift the load
And grant repose.
Klse how couldst thou to-morrow
With all to-morrow's work to do,
If thou thy burden all the night
Didst cary through?
The camel kneels at break of day
To have his gjtidc replace his load;
Then rises up anew to take
The desert road.
So thou shottldst knoel at morning's
That Oed 11.ay give thee dally care.
Assured that He no lond tr.o great
Will make tl.ee hear.

Talk Myopia of the Eye
Myopia means near sight.
When an eye is myopic or near
sighted the object looked at does
not focus on the nerve, the
focus Is in front of the nerve, the
eyeball, therefore is too long.
Now, as we cannot chango the
shape of the eyeball, we put in
front of it a concave lens. This
kind of a glass has the property
of putting the focus back to the
nerve. Myopic persons hold
reading close to the eyes, objects
at a distance being dim. Vision
is certainly the most important of
the senses, therefore a word to
the wise should suffice. Visit my
office and learn more about cor
recting imperfect sight.
