The bond Issue for good roads is be
fore the people of Iaurens county for
settlement. It is not a ptolitical mat
ter, nor is it a matter that concerns
any one class of our citizens-but it
seems to me that we )eopIc who live
in the country, and who know from
actual experience all the discomforts
of our winter tinie roads, should seize
upon this as an opportunity for mak
ing cotntry life more pleasant and
more worth while.
So many of our vital interests are
involved inl tills malter, that. I for one
will be very much (isapl)pointe(I ir we
refuse to take this forward step. As
good an(l patI riotic citizens ought we
not wish to see our Couty character
Ized by a progressive spirit? As pub
lic spirited men canl we afford to op
iose thist matter?
Iut' there are reasons for favorint
this bond Issue that come nearer home
to us than that of being progressivo
