Just at the present time there is no f
question that is of more vital impor- h
tance to all the people of this county
and of this State than that of good 11
roads. From whatever standpoint the
subject is viewed, its importance re
mains the same. That we should have
them at whatever cost, all think',g o
people admit. a
As a purely business investment they
will pay. Figures from other States
which have built good roads prove this 5
beyond the shadow of a doubt. "It has
been estimated that in forty counties in t
Indiana where good roads have been d
built, the average increase in the sell
ing price of land, due to existing im- t
proved highways, is $6.48 per acre. The n
estimated average increase per acre v
that would result from improving all a
the public roads is $9.00. The esti- I
mated average annual loss, per 100 s
acres from poor roads, is $76.28. On the
basis of this calculation the average e
annual loss from poor roads is seventy- t
six cents per acre.'" This only relates
to the increase in the value of lands, t
and does not include the greater saving X
in the wear and tear in stock and ve
hicles, and says nothing of the pleasure
to be derived. C
As a factor in the mental and moral t
and social advancement of a community
they are of equal importance with any
other. For there is little use to have
schools and churches and neighbors un
less they can be reachedwithout great
In a discussion of this subject there
is one other thing, and it is not the
least by any means, that should be
taken into consideration. For several
years past there has been a great flow
of population from the rural districts
into the towns and cities, and these
have rapidly builded up at the expense 1
of the surrounding country. This is an
abnormal condition and cannot but 1
work harm to our State. When the
farmers of the South are happy and
contented the South is bound to pros
per. .When among this class of her
people there is a general discontent, a
wide-spread belief that they can im
prove their condition by moving into
the towns and working in the mills or
following other pursuits, there is dan
ger ahead. Where lies the evil and
what.is the remedy? The -farmers will
tell you that although they have schools
and churches, there are times when,
owing to the condition of the public
-highways, they can be reached only
with the greatest difficulty. They want
their children to hav~e the benefit of a
good education and to grow up under
the influence of the church. Both may
be secured in town, and to town they
come. At certain seasons of the year
they are almost entirely cut off ' from a
market,, and of course, the loss that is
* ~ sustained is heavy. With these incon
veniences staring them in the face, and
with the belief that they can improve
* their condition by moving to town and
working for wages they leave the farm.
What is the result? The farms, of
course, suffer. The towns for a time
receive a new impetus from the new
blood that is infused. But it is not for
* long. For the surrounding country is
the town's foundation and when that
suffers the town must eventually suffer
As we have shown, the main evil lies
* in the condition of the public roads.
With the system of free rural mail
* delivery now in use, if having good
roads the farmers and all the people of
the rural districts would be as much in
touch with the outside world as those
who live in our larger cities. Every
convenience and every advantage that
life pzan afiord would be theirs. There
would be no occasion for discontent,
and there would be none. All classes
and all trades would feel the effect. In
fact, the South can never take the
position she should occupy- until she has
Then it is the duty of the county to
build good roads, and to begin the work
at once. In addition to the present
chain gang system and commutation tax
we believe that a tax of one mill on all
property should be levied for this special
purpose. If this is done the commu
tation tax should remain at $1.00.
It is easy to see how this solution
woudi be wise and just. At present the
corporations are paying practically
nothing for the support of the roads.
Good roads are of as much benefit to)
them as to any individual. The town of
Newberry, which pays about one third1
of the taxes of the county, pays nothing
for the support of the county roods.
Good roads would be of as much benefit]
to the town as to the people who bring
their products here. Whatever benefits
one, as a matter of course, benefits the
other. Then the town should be taxed]
for building good county roads, and the1
town is willing to be taxed.
This tax would only amount to $1.001
on $1,000 worth of property and would
bear lightly on the poor man and heavi
est on those who are best able to standi
the burden. With the commutation tax
at $1.00, and this amonnt required to be.t
paid and no work taken as a substitute,f:
all classes would be reached.
We submit this plan to the people of
the county for their consideration. We
believe it just and equitable and that
the tax would not be felt. The good I
that would result can not be overesti- v

In a later issue of his paper, continu
ig the same article, this correspondent
iakes the following summary:
To sum up, the facts deduced from
y tour of tl"p Southern mills are these:
First, that f ,m one-tenth to one-fifth
f the total number of cotton operatives
re mere children.
Second, that they work from eleven
o twelve hours a day.
Third, that they are paid from 10 to
0 cents a day.
Fourth, that boys and girls from 14
o 18 make from 50 to 75 cents a day.
Fifth, that adults rarely make over a
ollar, and that on piece work.
Sixth, that the children's work,
hough not heavy, is grinding and
Seventh, that the constant buzz of
vhirring wheels, the high temperature
nd vitiated air-conditions inseparable
rom cotton mills-wear down the
toutest frame and strongest nerves
and the children so employed ere long
ose the bright' ey', healthy glow and
lastic step which is the common heri
age of youth.
Eighth, that in many cases these
rchins are held in hopeless bondage to
heir illiterate, heartless and avaricious
Ninth, that the normal order of things
s, alas, too often inverted, and the
addening spectacle presented of weak
hildren supporting able bodiedd pa
ents, in lieu of parents supporting
Tenth, that not one out of twenty of
uch toilers can read or write.
The writer concludes with the follow'
The day is coming, and that, in all

anguine reformer dares hope, when
ot only will every child now toiling in
3outhern mills be emancipated from
much bondage, but, coincident there
vith will be enacted compulsory edu
:ation laws, whereby the freedom thus
eroically fought for and gloriously
achieved may be utilized to the full by
the preparation of the coming genera
ion of Southern operatives for the
privileges and responsibilities of the
most enviable citizenship on earth.
These facts are in accord with the
position which The Herald and News
has taken all along. Child labor is an
evil. If an evil, then it should be rem

remedy possible. If the mill owners
themselves will not take action, then
as a last resort, give us conservative
and wise legislation, a law just to all

are soon changed, the change when it
loes come will be radical and may it

It is just two weeks from today un
il the first primary. It has been a
ood many years since South Carolina
has had such bright prospects politically.
Factionalism has been wiped out. The
people are no longer obedient to,i the
lash of a dictator and are thinking for
themselves as never before since the
war. This is clearly demonstrated in
the campaign now about to draw to a
lose. The crowds in attendance upon
the meetings have whooped no favor

arefully. There was no use for Sena
tor Tillman or any one else to come out

Mayor Otto Klettner declines to stand
for re-election to the office of mayor of
this city, which he has held for two
terms. During his term of office he
has consistently worked for what he
conceived to be for the best interests
o his people and the upbuilding of his
town. There has been little or no fric

sciousness of having done his duty as
he saw it and with the good-will and
the well-done of our people.

. B JONES,
THE BEST METHID OF FRYING FOOD.
Some Valuable Suggestions and How to
Get Satisfactory Results. No Need
of Having Dyspepsia.
Most physicians, especially in the I
northern United States. say that fried
food is responsible for most of the dys
pepsia, especially in the south, where
frying is most prevalent.
This is no doubt true, in a broad and
average way, but it is not necessary
that it should be true. Too much grease
of any kind, and in any way, is cer
tainly bad for the digestion; but the
conclusion must not be too hastily
reached that fried food is necessarily
greasy. Grease for cooking should be
looked upon merely as as a medium for
communicating a high degree of heat.
It is not usually possible to cook things'
in water to a higher temperature than
212 degrees, and hence in many cases
it is necessary to cook meats, etc., a
long while at this temperature to get
them done. But it is easily possible to
cook things equally well done in grease
in a much shorter time, on account of
the higher temperature that may be
reached-sometimes 300 to 400 degrees.
The true way to cook in grease is to
get it very hot before introducing the
meat or other article. When it is
dropped in the higher degree of heat
immediately chars the outer surface
and closes the pores, so that the grease
cannot get inside. It is important to
keep the heat up, and not to put the
articles into the grease so fast as to
lower the temperature. When done,
they should be immediately removed
and laid on a cloth to absorb the ad
hering grease. Many cooks take a
frying pan off the fire with the eggs
or meat in it, all cooked, and leave it
so until served. This is the next best
way to let the grease soak through to
the centre. The very best way to soak
the grease in, and the very best way
to promote dyspepsia is to put the ar
ticles in the frying pan to cook when
the grease is not hot enough.
Frying is generally a most wasteful
manner of cooking, for the reason that
so much of the grease is thrown away
after the article is cooked. This is gen
erally unnecessary. If the frying has
been properly done, the grease has not
taken up much from the article cooked.
The grease may be poured from the
frying pan into a vessel of hot water,
when most of the foreign matter will
settle and the pure grease will float,
after somewhat washing itself in the
water. It may then be used again and
again with the best results.
There is naturally a smell from any
frying grease. In Europe, where man:
kinds of grease and oils are used for
frying, people become accustomed to
the different smells, and do not mind
them. In this country all are accus
tomed to the smell of frying hog lard.
When it was first proposed to cook
with cotton oil the new smell was ob
jectionable, especially the smell of
badly refined oil, and thus there grew
a prejudice against its use. Another
cause for bad results with the oil was
the fact that often times the cook
would not wait for the oil to get hot
enough before putting it gi the articles.
When using lard, the cook would natur
ally wait for it to melt, and it would
get hot without provoking impatience.
But the ' I looks.ready when it is first
put in t: frying pan, and there is a
temptati n to use it too soon. There
has been much steady work done by
those who make cooking compounds
from cotton oil, with a view to reducing
or disguising the smell. The result has
been most gratifying. There are sev
eral concerns making a specialty gof
oil refined for use in cooking, w;ithout
further manipulation. The Wesson Pro
cess company of Savannah, Ga., has
been very successful in this line and
will be glad to mail cook books.
There are also a number of highly
satisfactory cooking greases made
from cotton oil and beef fat, such as
"Palmatena" and "Snow Drift," both
of which products are extensively
manufactured by the Southern Cotton
011 Company of the Carolinas and
Georgia at their works in Savannah.
They are both high class and reliable
products in which the pure cotton seed
oil is used and they resemble lard in
appearance and results, but are more
satisfactory arid healthy, and which are
superior to hog lard from every point at.
view. That they are much more
healthful there can be no doubt.
