PUT OUT OF OWN OFFICE.

lice force of The Advertiser (luring
the past week. Pending repairs to the
front of the building. The Advertiser's
front ofiee had to be closed up and
typewriters. tables, etc., shifted to the
rear of the building, while Mr. Allen
Dlramlett, the "old Reliable," took the
sipports from underneath the build
ing to place a steel beam in their
stead. "Cap'n" Branlett had a rath
er "ticklish" job on his hands to re
Imove the supliports without injury to
tne building and "contents", but the
job was finished without a ripple on
the "serenity of the evening". Al
though some of the onlookers "Ioss
ing" the job prophesied that the build
ing wuizld fall in, none of The Adver
tiser force were uneasy, but staid on
the job. lowever, when the tine came
for the supports to be actually re
moved, there were so many unusual
little details in the process inter

standpl oints that. all d11sks were closed
down, maclhinery stopped andi the
force went out on the street to watch
the sight. The new sitpport being put
in and no further interest being at
tached to the rest of the job, -all the
force returned to their posts5. None

Think on This.
It would not be a great deal of
trouble and expense for every farmer
to put a sand-clay surface on the main
road running through his promises. It
should be a matter of pride for prop
erty owners to have the roads in front
of their houses properly graded and
surfaced. Certainly it would increase
a man's own self-respect while com
manding the respect and commenda
tion of others. The sand-clay road
and the split-log drag is a combination
that can not be beat. The two go to
gether and should be infeparable.
This is worth serious thought. If
we could just get. the people to think
and to think broadly and beyond their
own little selves we could 'have the
ideal life. How easy it would be for
every property owner, at least to co
operate, in the maintenance of the
road through his place. It should be,
as the Advertiser says, a matter of
pride to have the road in front of your
home property graded and surfaced
and then dragged. If you would do
It you would soon come to have a high
er regard for yourself and then you
would be an example to your neigh
bor and soon every one else would be
doing something to improve the road.
Before you can do much in improv
ing the schools or in bettering country
life something must be done for the
roads. Good roads are the fore-run
ners of the general uplift of rural con
ditions and rural life. Every one
should be interested and a little self
help and personal interest and coop
eration will go a long way in road
building and road maintenance.-New

In return the County provides nec

about the same contract that we have
had for a number of years, and believe
that, all things considered, it Is the
best arrangement that can be made.
As to highway and bridges, we
would report that with the exception
of some damage to the roads by reason
of the recent bad weather, the roads
of the county are in fair shape, in fact
have been in better 'condition during
tiue past winter than is usual for the
season of year.
While it is true that many of our
roads are not what they should be.
still if a comparison be made as be
tween the roads now and the condi
tion of the same roads eight or ten
years ago a very great general im1
provement will be noted
We have had a very good winter for
work an - have put the time in in wid
ening and relocating some of the more
important roads, and in this respect
have accomlplishel more than in any
The bridges of the county, general
hy, are in good condition. Of course
there are always some repairs needed
at some point, but taken as a whole
we have better bridges over the coun
ty than ever before. And despite the
fact that we failed to get an appropri
ation last year to cover our March,
1912 bridge loss, we have managed to
replace most of the bridges then de
stroyed by better ones than the old.
Our expenditures have been very
heavy during the past by reason large
ly of the unusual amount of bridge
work, as will be noted from our Fi
nancial Report which has been hand
ed in separately.
As to Magistrates, we would report
that all of the magistrates of the
county have regularly submitted their
books for examination as provided by
Par. 1109, Vol. 1, Code 1912, except
Magistrate W. T. Crews of Laurens
'Township, whose books have not been
presented for examination since July,
A. D. 1913. We ind further that he
has not made setiltements with the
County Treasurer as the law requires,
and are not able to say what the con
dition of his accounts may be.
We know of nothing seriously affect

that we deem of sullcient importance
to be brought to your attention.

minimum sentence, the evidence hay

largely influenced by his filther. It
will be remembered that his father,
Lace Glover, was killed by Sheriff Ow
ings and Deputy Abercrombie some
weeks ago when the two offilcers at
tempted to arrest .him on the same
charge. The testimony at the trial
was that Lace Glover burned the barn
and that his son accompanied him
when the crime was committed. A
verdict of not guilty was directed by
the court in the case of Emma Glov
er, her direct connection with the
crime not being established.
Thursday afternoon the court ac
cepted a plea of guilty from Link
Sherman, colored, charged with rape
and sentenced him to thirty years im
prisonment or hard labor on the coun
ty gang. Sank Griflin, a colored hack
driver of Laurens, also charged with
rape, was found not gulItyby the jury
sitting on his case.
Roy Sanders, t young white man,
plead guilty to violating the dispen

months on the county chain gang or
to a fine of $100. Before passing sen
