WINNSBORO, S. C. P. M. DEES Editor and Publisher -Entered in the post office at Winns boro, S. C., as second class mail mat ter. $2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE GOOD ROADS COMMUNICATION.' Editor Herald: The writer wishes to congratulate the people of Fair field on the stand they are taking on the subject of permanent road build ing. Good roads is one of, if not the most important factor in the fight to overcome the losses to our farm ers through the work of the boll weevil. Time is a factor of equal importance. Good roads are time savers, stock savers, machine savers, nerve savers, money savers, wagon savers, buggy savers. To make a suc cess in the future the farmers must stay on the job the same as the mer chant, the lawyer, the banker or me chanic, and this he cannot do spend ing the time we now spend on the roads and in the repair shops. I would guess that Fairfield has five or six hundred thousand dollars lost time and short lived machines due to bad roads would pay the in invested in gas machines, and I am quite sure, judging from my own per sonal experience, that the repair bills loss time and short lived machines due to bad roads would pay the inter terest many times over on your pro posed bond issue. In going from Co lumbia to Augusta before the roads were improved I used to use just double the gas and oil and double the time that it requires now. This also applies to Fairfield as well as. to other counties. Road building is no longer a local or neighborhood question. It is of the ut most im portance to state and nation. We no longer live in* communities with just me and my son John and his wife and my wife. We are fast becoming cit izens in reality of our nation. Thous ands of acres of land are sold an nually to people throughout this country who are just touring along the routes offering the best roads. People leave their home now on trips requiring weeks to make, just look ing around. They go by Guide books which carry maps showing counties having the best roads, and with your plans carried out, Old Fairfield would be among these counties attracting those just looking around from all sections of this country, and to this class of travelers more than any oth er are lands sold. Build roads, at tract travel, save your many ma chines, stock, wagons, buggies, nerves, lives, even your farms from further depreciatiaon. Build an all yeai- sys tem of roads and watch the results. - ,Again I congratulate the people on this great and grand undertaking. May they succeed, is the prayer of every progressive thought. H. G. Barnwell. Columbia, S. C. PATRONIZE YOUR HOME INDUSTRIES Some days past a subscriber of the News and Herald called in our office and chose to express himself in these - words "tell it to the world the roads between-are certainly bad, I don't mean tell Winnsboro, but tell the world". This expression does not intend to cast any reflections on the roads, but it does bring out a very important fact-the News and Herald should bie able to reach far more read ers than it does at present. The News and Herald is in a position* to tell practically five thousand people in this section some things, but if it was compelled to live by the revenue from its subscribers alone it could not ex ist. Its subscribers are the backbone *of its maintenance, without them the advertiser would have no need for its space, every one who can read and re sides within the boundary of The News and Herald should get their 31mes on our mailing list, every pres ent reader should secure at least one new one.I The "home paper" upholds "home m,~ dustries", without it the county has no mouth piece.

This mammoth amusement enter prise of 1922 has been oficially re corded as "America's ten times great est circus". It is a third bigger than it was in 1921. For, in addition to the many innovations offered then, the present season's program numbers ten more trained wild-animal displays making twenty in all-and the most superb trained horse acts that Eurpoe has yet produced. The wild animal and equine displays of 1921 were in troduced merely that the Ringling Brothers might judge of their popu larity. So enthusiastically were these numbers received that the famous showmen immediately arranged for the purchase of the world's finest acts of this kind. An entire equine circus was bought outright and brought to this country last winter. And while the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey agents were se curing this and the trained tiger, pol ar bear, lion leopard and jaguar groups, they had orders to engage the foremost men and women per formers of the European capitals. And these stars from city and jungle are all to be seen with this wonder circus of 1922. Everything, includ ing the great double menagerie of more than a thousand animals and exhibiting such rarities as a mite of a baby hippopotamus and its three ton mother, is to be seen for the price of one admission ticket. And by "everything" is meant not only the wild animal and equine displays, but the entire circus. More than 700 men and women, embracing the world's foremost arenic stars, take part. There are 100 clowns. Aside from the ferocious beasts, the pro gram includes forty trained elephants. There are five companies of trained seals, many (logs, bears, monkeys, pigs and pigeons. It is the biggest circus program the world has ever seen, given under the largest tent.

In Texas and Oklahoma the cotton contracts, which are pract ically identical with the contract signed by the members of the South Carolina association, were upheld by the courts and permanent injunctions granted. restraining mcmbers of those associations from disposing of their cotton except through the Associa tion. Temporary injunctions had been secured against six members in Texas and against several in Oklahoma some time back. In North Carolina a desperate ef fort was made by enemies of the Tri State Tobacco Association to have dissolved and injunction which had been issued against two members of the association. Several of the ablest lawyers in the state were employed in the effort to have the contract de clared unconstitutional but the court in its decision made the injunction permanent, declaring the contract sound. Very great interest was taken by South Carolinians in the North Caro lina hearing. The attempt to have the injunctions dissolved was made before Judge Frank Daniels. H. G Conner, Jr., of Wilson, chief counsel for those attacking the legality of contract argued that the association is aimed to create a monopoly and that it is a combination in restraint of trade. During the course of the speech of one of the attorneys for the associ ation, the court room which was filled with farmers interested in the out come of the trial, broke forth in ap plause. The tobacco association has now instiutued suit against the parties who sold their tobacco outside of the association for 5 cents a pound liqui dated damages. The Raleigh News and Observer in expressing gratification editorially at thePoutcome of the case in North Ca rolina said: "If cooperative market ing succeeds, the day of glutting the gone. If it fails, what then? In that case the farmers must revert to the old position where they get what ever is offered them. They will have no voice in that. One year they will get twenty cents a pound for their cotton and the next year six, and usualry they will be the victims of wild fluctuations". CITATION NOTICE.
