E ditor' The Advertiser:
The bonds for public roads, permtan-,
ent improvemiient or any other reason
able proposition to get permanent
roads has been talked about by all
classes of our people and the conclu
1on is that mdst anything is better
than what we have now. In the sum
mer the fresh clay and dirt is scraped
to the middle of the road so that the
road is soft and hard to'1pull through
luntil light rains come and help mat
ters a litte by packing It down. When
the winter rains set in the whole r'oad
turns to mud and the holes that were
4)artly filled up with clay in the sum
Wier are almost impassabe.' So we
thhiiik that if the good part of the roads
-arc let alone and rocks or san4 put
in the holes and wet, soggy places we
would get good roads all the way. It
hs believed by a great many people
that all of these bad places could be
tilxed In one year with rock, sand,
tigles, brush and top soil on as a fIn
Ish. IlJoping we will have gooa roads
all the way across the county as well
as from town to town, I am,

I w.nt t- ra ha am hea~trt- Ill
favor of Issuing collpol bonds for the
sum of 'lhree Hundred Thousand Dol
laws ($300,000) for permanent road
improvement in Laurens county. I
ithink it will be the greatest improve
iment we have had since the day the
old fence law went into effect.
I heartily endorse good roads and
anything pertaining to the upbuild
.ing and betterment of our public af
fairs. You say our adjoining coun-'
ties are .building permanent roads.
Sure they are-not only our adjoin
ing counties, but counties beyond
coulnties andl states beyond states hav'e
already seen the henefit and advan
tage of good roads. I live in the
country and am uroud of It. I am
pr~oudh I live In Laurens county. Now,
any fellow countrymli, we have this
opplortulnity to make -this great 11m
-provement. If we vote it down't, it will
.be our own loss. This is for us, if we
can only' see it in the right way. This
money will be spent ini the country on1
'thie country roads. Not a dollar wvill
be splent inaide the incorporated limits
of any town. Yet, the towvn peop~le ar~e
niot kicking. They want us to have
-it. With all their wealth and valua
ilde property' they are ready to help us
~to make thjis necessary improvement.
tryhey want us to have a better wa'y to
come to see them. We have been go
-ing and will continue to go. WVhy not
grasp) this opportunity and have a bet
Iter way to go? WVhy, the factories,
'railr'oads, banks and many other cor'
porations pay the best part or ,this
ptax. Therefore what we pay will he a
; very small item.
A few (lays ago I heard a mian say
i.hat he would not vote for the bond is
'sue. isomie one asked, "Why?" '"De
c'ause it will make taxes higher." At a
pretty close calculation it will in
crease hIs taxes 26 cents. Yet ho us
es'thie plihc roadis just as much ais
an~ybodly andl sometimes a little too
ingeh, not realizing that he could save
the 2(1 Cents in hauling of one or two
'loads of fertilizer.
Sonme say we are makIngsa dIebf for
(ourl children to pay. Well, If we are,
let us build some roads for them and
not raise them in the mud holes and
uiand-bars. I ami aurel' whent this comn
ing generation comes .to manhood,
that they will not tolerate the roads
that we now owtC With their good
uichools and fine education, they will
see the necessity of good roads, and
'they will have thorn to build and also
'to- pay for. Why not let us 'build
them now and let us and them too
e the* boneflt of thyem'? Well, some
of. bur' good; .brethren say, "It is Ino
time'now to vote on bond" Let me
tell you, if we sit down and wait for
wars, railroad strikes, mad dogs and
every other eruption to pass and
things become quiet, we will be wait
ing when Gabriel blows .for us. Our
represontaltves want it. They have
been so klhd as to lot us voice with
them; so let us say "YES, WE WANT
IT" and then we will get it.

Editor The Advertiser:
After tirty-eil!ht years of watch
ful watilng I ai ileased to know
that there is at this litte one rI'y of
hope that. old Laurens county will in
the ntear future make a long step for
ward by voting for improved iIble
roads. To explain, just thirty-eight
years ago I began the practice.of med
leine, ewtending over parts of Dials
.and Sullivan townships, and. for the
above number of years I have almost
raily been using the roads inI this part
of the coutity, witter an1td tsummt1ter, fall
and spriig. fromt stifiing it the (ist to

reader, pause for a moment and place
yottrself int ily.%- stead, and try to linag
ine low you would have enjoyed1 a top
soiled road on all those trips, for all
these years. Again kind reader, did
you ever walk, ride horse-back, In
buggy, or automobile on one of those
top-soil roads? If not, let me try to
tell you. Soime time ago I was called
to see a patientt utp near Simpsonville,
Greenville county,' at a time when all!
'n-imiproved roads vere almost im
passalle even with horse and buggy.
I hadn't been iII that section in quite
a while, but I was well acqatinted
with one section of ithe road known to
be bad, even in ordinary bad weather.
And to be certain to le able to pass
over that. point I had imy strongest
horse, harness and buggy hitched II)
and all the way to that pi~nt, no mat
toer how deep) thte mud or how hiaird thle
puth, I fountd myself saying to imy
faithtful horse, ''You wiil id harder

grop for every acre every year." "Blut
htow is tils possible," you ask, "if
we are to continued to grow our big
crops of corn and oats and cotton ?"
'le answer is that not onlf can we
continueO to grow our regular staple
eiops, but by planting a legume crop
On every acre every year, we can
krow bigger and better grain aiP.cot
ton crops than ever before, and grow
tlhemu at a greater net profit. Let's see:

should be planted to crimson elover

land during the witer and .be plowed
under in the spring. We know of no
Iuicker, surer or more economical way
than this to double the yield of
