I GOOD ROADS REPCRTORIALS
Laurens is the apex of a triangle,
with Greenville and Spartanburg at
the ends of the base Hue. The three
sides of this triangle are of practical

all good road.

The motor car fits Into and com
pletes the equipment of lab>r and
time saving devices of the up-to-date
farmer. It does not supercede the
horse, not a bit of it. The horse goes
to the field in the morning and the au
tomobile carries the produce to town
or goes to the mill In a hurry or makes
a quick trip to town and hack for
some part needed to repair the other
machinery. It often saves time for
a gang of men employed and will pay
for itself in real service. Machinery
never gets tired. Work animals do.

The improvement of our roads means
the enrichment of our county.

A lot of people who stay at home on

The motor car is destined to play

The earliest self-propelled vehicles
were so expensive that only rich peo

Man is a social being. His nature
demands change of scene end compan
ionship. The bane Of farm life has
been its isolation, its lonesomness.
Rural free delivery, good roads and
automobiles are doing much to re
move the undesirable features.

Every automobil that passes by a
farm incerases the value of that farm.
That may sound like a broad state

its location and the ease with which

valuable the land.
