WARE SHOALS PEOPLE WANT
PRINCETON ROAD IMPROVED
Ware Shoals Good Roads Club Starts
Agitation for Improvment of 1toad
Ietween Ware Shoals and Prince
The Advertiser has received a copy
of a circular letter being distributed
among the farmers of the Ware Shoals
vicinity in regard to improving the
road in this county between Princeton
and Ware Shoals. The letter speaks
for Itself and is as follows:
What Is a straight line? Ask The
first person you meet and see If he
can remember what he was taught in
school about this matter. The answer
to this is, The shortest distance be
tween two points.
There is a movement now on foot
to get the proposed State-wide road
(that is to be built from the lower
part of the State to the mountains) o
go through Greenwood. If the Green
wood people decide they want the
road, and go after it, you may rest as
sured they will get it. They are all
live wires in that. town.
Before going into the mountains, this
road will pass through Greenville,
which, of course, is the logical point
Now, take your map and draw a
straight line from Greenwood to
(ireenvilel and you will note that same
passes through Rileys, Ware Shoals,
Princet.on, etc. There is a very good
road already in existence through the
country from Greenwood to Ware
Shoals. The road from Greenville to
wards Ware Shoals is going to extend.
to the Greenville county line; and they
are already at work near Princeton.
Princeton is just this side of the
Greenville county line. Within a short
tine, Iherefore, we wil Inot only have
good roads from Greenwood to Ware
Shoals, but from Princeton to Green
ville, a distance of forty miles, There
is a missing link at. present, however,
anid that is the six miles between
\Wmt. Shoals and Plrinceton. This lit
tle bil should I;'e overhauled at once
