Charleston Automobllist.s .Make Long
Trip Via Laurons.
Automobilists of Charleston and the
lower part of tho Slate in general,
will he deeply interested in the fact
that a Charleston ii;;;;!::::;- has travel

Vllle, N. C, making one of the long

tomobile in this section of the COUU
tl'.V. Mr. M. IL Paine, Jr., who drove
the car on its long journey to the
mountain metropolis, returned to Char
leston oil Monday. Mr. Paine staled
that his automobile had covered the
distance in three days, hut that with
any soil of luck tho trip could he made
in two days. Twice on the way up the
party ran into cloud-hursts and had
lo slop in order to build bridges, and
throughout the roads were in had
shape as the result of heavy rains.
Mr. Paine drove the car the whole
way himself. Witli him were Messrs
13, I!. Randolph and F. M. Robertson
ami a chauffeur.
Speaking ol ibe trip after Iiis return
to Charleston. Mr. Paine said, in part:
"Wo I'll Charleston on Tuesday
morning, Juno 21, at fl:H0 a. m., and
driving at a steady hut not very fact
gait, by way of Suinmervllle, llarley
ville, (lowinanu, Ornngoburg, and St.
Matthews, wo arrived in Columbia, the
Capital of tho State, in tho afternoon.
As far as Rowmans, the road was
of an indifferent nature, mostly sandy
and rough in places, hut as soon as tin
OrnngebUI'g county line was passed
improvement was immediately noticed
and from Rowmnns to Ornngeburg tin
road was good, being of the sand ami
clay variety .
To avoid Hugaboo Swamp, the route
from St. Matthews may be by way of
Fort Motte and Kate's Ferry, on the
Congaree river, the road then follow
ing to the right of the river on higher
ground, but this may be Inconvenient
because of the uncertainty of the ferry.
Arriving in Columbia by awy of the
Cougarce river bridge, one goes
straight up Oervlas street, to the Cap
itol, at Main street, whore the hotels
are found, and we stopped at the Hotel
The distance for this day's run was
We did not leave Columbia until
10::t0 the next morning. Weduesdi y, as
the reports of a cloudburst ahead of us
on the road at Clinton, gave the eon
dil ion to he so bad that we deel led
to allow the road a short time to
dry out. which proved to he a wise
move. We therefore only mapped OUI
schedule on the second day as far as
Laurens, S. ('.. 70 miles from Colum
bia, instead of lit", miles to Greenville,
as originally planned, and easily made
under favorable conditions.
Leaving Columbia by Main street,
running north, we proceeded to the
Urs? road turning to the left, about
eight blocks from the Capitol, marked
Broad River road, ami turning Into
this we soon came to a long, covered
bridge over the Rroad river, the toll
being '?'>'> cents for a louring car. Just
after leaving this bridge a sharp wind
ing turn is met. the road being known
as the Lexington road, and for four
miles is in pretty fair condition, lim
ning through a section of Lexington
County, between the Rroad and Stillt
do rivers, known as the Dutch Fork.
This road begins to get pretty rough
ten miles from Columbia and soon de
generates into as rough and rocky a
road met with anywhere in the State
he low the mountains. For 'he next
ten miles this road has been termed
"the Jungle." and it deserves the name.
lOmorgillg therefrom we ran through
a small settlement known as Spring
Hill. From bore on to Chaplns, a
small village, the road was only fair
in spots, with a few bad creeks and
bridges to cross and several badly cut
up red clay hills.
The tirst town after leaving Colum
bia is Prosperity. Passing through
here one encounters both the Colum
bia, N'ewberry ami Laurens ami South
ern Railroad, crossing both six times
in two and three quarter miles, thence
into N'ewberry by Johnston. Calhoun
ami Main streets.
Leaving Newberry by the county
court house on College street, and K?
lau northwest, we soon encountered
the < ffects of the cloudburst of tho day
before, and badly cut up roads mad
running rough and slow. We next met
dlfllcultles In a washed away bridge,
and the wisdom of our lato departure
from Columbia was evident from the
fact thnt the county chain gang had
just arrived on the spot to repair the
damage. An hour earlier would have

with the effect of the cloudburst, had

we sank to the axles, bat the great
power and ability of our steam car for
pulling hard in bad places carried up
through without getting stalled.
From hero on the gradual improve
ment of tho road allowed us to make
a little belter time and after many
more railroad crossings, we ran into
the town of Clinton. S. C. We were in
formed that the streets of the city had
boon under two feet of water the day
before, and that we were the first ear
to go through without great difficulty.
With a little dry weather the worked
part of the road will doubtless be in
good condition at an early date.
One leaves Clinton between the two
railroad depots, following the Colum

about four miles. Turning to the right

So you will understand that some store's BIG SPECIALS aro only tho other fellows regular prices?
therefore hound to bo a very distinct difference between the respective stores' represented values.
