PREE MAIL DELIVERY AND GOOD ROADS
-A NEW PLAN.
If report be true, t: Postmaster
General is soon to be asked to consider
a pretty promising plan for the better
ment of the highways of this country,
submitted to the superintendent of the
free d:-livery system by a citizen of'
Pennaylvania, Mr. Joseph- W. Brown.
It is based upon the fact that only one
serious obstacle stands in the way of
developing the free delivery service,
namely, the present condition of our
trym roads.
'Mr. rown's idea is that if a certain
rs"d is repo$ted as practically impassa
bi ir fcarriers, the highway au
thsrities of the town wherein it is
found are to have a reasonable length
of time within which to repair it, and
4he pealty for their failure so.to do is
,{- to be the cessation of free dehivery mn
t at locality.
In his recent report, Mr. Martin
Dodge, Directo of the Bureau of Pub
lie Roads Tngwries of the Department
of A ture, made some interesting
-'he circumstance that over $6,000,
CK-7as appprated by'our last Cong
ess large to be buried in our muddy
{ ads1n the deliv of our rural mails,
wh e-only the a sum of $20,000 was
last year devoted to meeting the road
problem, indicates the great need of ed
ucation regarding the present necessity
and demand for vigorous and intelligent
road work.
"As muh of these large appropria
tious for rural mail delivery could be
saved if we had goodroads, it is obvious
that an amount equal to a considerable
portion of these sums could be spent.to
a good advantage in educating the peo
ple in the work of improving our coun
tryroads,-and thus forever close a large
dra* Qnour national caehbox."
If the 'introduction of free mail de
livery results in the improvement of
0ar country roads, our rural friends will
have occasion -ta bless the art of letter
writing and the Post 'Office twice over.
New York.Sun.
The good road problem is pressing for
ehl n and the only way-to solve it is
tdaise some money by taxation. It
wuld be-thebest investment we could
make. If we could just get the super
vi to go to work and build a few
ms.:of gcod road so- that our people
could see Vhat we mean by road build

Up to the present Judge Hunt hasn't
been around to give this office a "warm
ing" time. Unlike the Daily Mail, he
is not in the habit of "gaping at a gnat
and swallowing a camel." Besides, he
i's too well known by the people of New
berry and too highly esteemed by them,
to need to correct any assertion sup
posed to have been made by the little
daily published in Anderson.

A Trip to Prosperity.
A few days ago I had the pleasure
af visiting Prosperity-the town which
[ always like to visit.
When I arrived I haidly knew the
place-so miany new buildings.
While walking up Main street, and
ooking to the right I spied a large new
brick building, and seeing a crowd of
peopl4 standing in front of it, and not
knowing what it meant, of course curi
osity led me in that direction. When
I reached the spot Chief of Police Mer
chant and our friend A. H. Hawkins
were just coming. out. Of course I
asked what all this meant. "Why this
is our city hal1 which has just been
completed; have you not been inside of
it? Come in and look around.'' When I
on the inside I was surprised to see
how nicely they have it arranged. The
chairs are perfect beauties. They are
now prepared to accommodate any kind
of shows-from a~ magic lantern to Hi
Henry Minstrels.
Then walked out through the sta
tion house, and to my astonishment I
saw; some one lyingin an iron sell, com
paratively dead, but the Chief told ime
not to get alarmed; it was only a little
too much (X). He said the cells were
just completed the day before, and that
he had already had ~four locked up in
them. The way they have them fixed
there is no chance of escape when once
put in and locked up. From. what I
could learn df Chief Merchant he is the
right man in the right place. I also
learned that Private Cromer has been
doing good work.
They also have the meat market at
tached to the city hall, which is very
nice and convenient.
As a whole, Prosperity is on a boom.
Why not erect a cotton mill?
I would like to say more about your
prosperous city, but space will not ad
mit any more.
We forgot to thank our friend, Mr.
A. H. Rikard, for a seat in his buggy
there and back.. S.
