Columbia, S. C., Dec. 15.-Reports of
the Stato Board of Charities and Cor
rection of annual inspections of chain
gangs in South Carolina made public
yesterday by Frank E. Broyles, assist
ntit secretary, contain a recomnienda
tion that the entire county system is
wrong and should be abolished by the
legislature and the convicts placed un
(er the State Highway Commission. In
submitting the report, 'dr. Broyles
"From foir year's intimate knowl
edge of chain gangs in South Carolina,
we have reached the conclusion that
the entire system is wrong and should
, abolished by the legislature. We
know many countles that are working
less than 10 or 12 men, with three
hired white men for guards. One
county was working five convicts, to
guoard whoml three men were employed
and fed by the county. This is a los
in.g proposiiton for tle taxmayers. The
best that can he done with such a
gang oin tie road is repair or patch
work. which tears up again before
lie gang works ten miles away. The
trealiienit of tle men by tile aut hori
ties is not what it shoild Ile in any
respect and it iever will be so long

BUY REAL ESTATE
Do not wait and have to pay more. The price
of real estate is jumping day by day and the
longer you wait the more you will have to pay.
Be wise and buy now.
You do not think it a good time to buy your farm or home
now---but didn't you think the same thing a year ago?
Since then the prices have advanced very rapidly and the
other fellow has got the profit. Do not fall into the same
Real estate is the one commodity that has a steady tendency
upward. It will remain so as long as this country continues
its prosperity, or until it reaches 'a point where the popula
tion stops increasing. Bank on that.
If you have a farm or home that you are not satisfied with,
list it with me for sale and get one that you would be satis
fied with. If you are a renter and are tired of paying rent,
come to me and let me find you a nice place where you can
put your rent into the purchase price and save money in
the long run.
Why Hesitate? Do Not Put Off Doing the Thing
That Means So Much to Your Future.
See Me for Anything About Land.
