Our good friend, the Woodruff News
and Herald was in line humor tin
other day: it Just felt good and want
ed to make other people reel good.
Maybo it had just heard Mr. Hurgder
pijyi Our Trie- ! cci'ipiltiii it d i' :?
visor Humbert of this eeuiiiy: we i?
to add that hi oitr opinion, Lauren's
county ims one of the best sujiervlsors
in the state, hud in* is deserving of
the very highest praise.
Th" News and Herald say..: ".Six
months ago one could hear o:t all sides
in I.aureus county, complaints from
farmers ami others about tin- bad
roads of the county. Hut no longer I
can the people of I.aureus have a
right to kick about the conditions of,
their roads. The supervisor of Lau
rens county has handled the situation
well, and now his roads are in good
Most heartily do we endorse the
statement, "the supervisor of Laurens
county has handled the situation well",
In fact, the way he handled the situ
ation alter the August floods last year
was marvelous. And furthermore, the
way lie handles nlliairs of the county
all the time, with the limited means
at his disposal Is a still greater mar
Hut. we cannot agree with our con
tetnpnrary that there is no room for
kicking in this county on the condi
tion of the roods. Taken as a whole,
we doubt seriously it' the roads in this
county are in as good condition as
those of Anderson and Greenville and
possibly Grectiwood; ami there are
places in this county where the roads
ar? in terrible state. Why?
ThO reason is simply lack of funds.
Ahd roads in I.aureus county cannot
he j ut in a permanent good condition
until a special tax is levied or a bond
Issue made. It takes money to build '
road--, and the taxpayers will have to
bear the burden.
Put we hear the cry ;?.( once: "Taxes
are already too liigli." We admit that
they are high, very lilgh. Ptil did you

SHOOTING RED BIRDS.
A news article on another page tells
of some boys in the V at's milts neigh
borbOOd who the other day killed a red
bird, contrary to the laws of the
state. Such practices should by some
means he stopped.
As suggested by the citizen who re
ported the matter, the people Will have

This may well he done by the Audubon
society. We understand that Mr. .1 no.

society, but whether or not there Is
a complete organization here, we do
not know; if not. now is a very oppor
