FOLLaOW TilM illiiCIl,
In one of the local ehurcies Sunday
milorning a printed statement of the
past year's receipts and expenditures
was distribtted to ite congregation. In
annoctinl(llg the publication of the
statement the minister said that he
considered it the duty of ollicials of
any co-operatlive organization to give
an account of finances so that the
mtemnbers may kn1o0w how tIheir inds
are (Xpelded. It is quiiitt t rue that
tle mueml bers of thist church li cold hlavk
gonte to the treasu rer and secred a
sttililar statemenvilt or the mninister imri
self coubi have consumiied a few in iu
utes of the service hour in reading the
statement and letting the imt embers car
ry it ill their heads. but Itlie iiore eile
lent method of printing it for perusal
at home vas adopted. The position
that this ('llutreh and olier tthi rclies
have tahein in this regard is the samlie
position that I'h'e Advertiser has al
ways take in aniothier co-operative or

The ima1portance of pu blicity in city

during thle plreviolus administration
was distribiuted by one of the

In a letter to the Laurens Advertis
er, Capt. Joseph -B. Humbert of Prince
ton, Sullivan township, Laurens coun
ty writes to say that the high'way
commission of the county, in improv
ig the roads, should - give attention
first to those of Sullivan township. 1le
says that as a member of the legisla
ture (Captain Ilumbert represented
Laurens in the "Wallace louse" and
in subsequent legislatures of that (lay
and there are In South Carolina few
men now whose words deserve to be
-ore hedi) he voted for a bond is
sul amounting to $150,000 for the
coist ruct ion of railroads that connect
the City of Laurens *itih the cities
of Greenwood, Greenville and Spar
tanburg. All these years the city of
I lau rens. Ilie towns along the railroads
and tle countryside that they traverse,
have had the advantage of these steel
highways, while :Sul ivan 1township,
the txlreile western part of the counti
ty, its citizens paying taxes to defray
11,4 interest oil the honds, has had no
railroads. Capaill l1uiibert contends
that, sinte the people are to be taxed
for tlie now system of highways, the
distriets heretofore neglcet d should
have attention in pireferenee to those
that were provided -with) railroads.
The State thinks that his argument
is sound and Ihat it should be ae(i)t -
ed as a principlie apiplying. not only to
Suillivan township, hut to localities in
every parlt of Suouth Carolina. If we
are to b1uild improved highways andl
mailntaiin them, the aim should be to
plrovili transportation facilities to tle
pe1olle who are now without t11 lhem and
to develop with Comlleteless and sym
imitiry It whole State of South Caro
lina. The iople (an not afford at this
time to spend great sum1s o1 mon y in
roads for idasure and ull1ess tlit pro
posed, highways can he it rned to
econonimic benefit. thir1 construction
shoulId not be, at present. uinderit aken.
Taking Sullivani towislhip, as typical,
it should be given hard, silooth roals
Ieahbli the year round, because it is
withboutl ni-tal roads over Which cars
are driven by steel or electricity, tle
ood roads, iwhether liey hi made
(f erosstiis andti steel rails or of cc
milln t, ari'e too few in Solilh Carolina
fo' tlie 14otle to Indulge inl parallel
roads so firl as they may he avoided.
The citizens near the railroad should
be insellIsh eniough to be content with
that convenience or to drive a motor
car throtighl the mud until his neigh
hor ift *en 1 miles a way shall have some
way of avoiding the muld.
Neivssarily, somi paralleling of the
railroads and trolley lines, in fact a
good deal of it, will be iinescapalH'.
