In a neighboring county th<
county practice was advertised t<
be let to the lowest bidder. In
stead of bids came a protest fron
all the physiciars on the groun<
that such bidding was unprofes
slonal In this way the commis
sioners were severely rebuked fo
the low valuation they had place<
upon the human body. Building
and other work may be let to the
lowest bidders, but when it come;
to the care of the physical ma:
the very best talent should b<
had as far as possible. Some ma:
ignorantly condemn this profes
sionalism of the medical pro
fession, but were it not for it w
would have to depend wholl;
upon quacks in cases of sickness
Tbis professional spirit is neces
sary to protect mutually the pub
lic and the profession. This i
true not only of the medical pro
fession but of all other profession
as well. Especially is this tru
of teaching, if this now semi-pro
fession can be classed in th
category of professions where i
belongs at the head. Teacher
are oftentimes so forgetful of a]
others but self-and of self too
as to offer to accept schools at
less price th.n the present in
cumbent or other applicants
Trustees also in electing thei
teachers often select the cheapes
applicant. Such unprofessional
ism contributes largely to th
continuing rule of ignorance an
inefficiency of service.
Ex-Governor Bob Taylor lec
tured at Rock Hill March th
19th and it was our pleasure t<
attend the lecture. To hear hin
is to be convinced of the exaltet
place he holds among platforn
speakers. But throughout the
whole of his inimitable lecture
we could not keep away th<
thought of what a rich treat the
people of Rock Hill were enjoy
ing. Nor could we refrain fron
the thought of the rich benedic
a lyceum course of lectures from
the masters on the platform.
What was our neighbor's good
fortune in this instance could bE
the blessing of many other towni
in South Carolina which ar
abundantly able to enjoy suel
opportunities. The principal dif
ference between those towns tha

treats and those that do not i

but Mr. Editor. Good roads
mand rimarily the two co

Fis not (jt"?nai
inorance of the men -who origi
nally laid them out. Under the
Fconditions existing at the time
they were first used, the routes
Iadopted were probably the best
-attainable. Scarcity of labor and
Sa local traffic much less t han pre
vails at p resent led to the adop
tion oft tat route which could be
Sutilized at the least possible ex
Spenditure of work; hence in cross
-ing a hill it was necessary, first
Sof all, to secure a roadway trans
Iversely level by nature. This, in
- nearly all cases required the as
. cent of the hill in its steepest
r part, as observation will easily
jshow. I do not mean to imply
that the ridges were crossed at
their highest elevations. Gaps
Swere generally made use of, but
in approaching the summit of the
gap, the shortest, and therefore
the steepest, course was followed,
. because that direction is the only
. one giving a transversely level
i road- d without, excavating the
-upper side of the road.
.As long as these old routes are
.followed it is idle to talk of good
. roads. A road with a grade of
thirty .degrees, even if laid in
-asphalt, is a bad road. Until we
decide to employ intelligent su
pervision in the selection of the
fittest routes, we will be wasting
valuable labor in smoothing down
toboggan slides.
SA small experience in this line
and a careful observation in my
rides through the county have
convinced me that roads with
tolerably easy grades may in
nearly all cases be obtained over
or around our hills, and fre
quently with no increase in length.
-Occasionally the distance would
be shortened.
jExperience on a limited scale
has also shown that these new

in shape with less work than is
required to repair the old roads

IThe greatest objection urged to
the adoption of these new routes
is the extravagant prices de
manded by the owners of the
lands through which they pass.
