'What do M consider the greatest number?, continued his Lordship; "Number one" was the Commoners reply. On account of the illness of the Rev. G. C. Gibson pastor of the Bap tist church, his congregation worship ped last Sunday evening with theii Methodist brethern. Rev. B. B. Black preached his farewell sermon at this service. The Rev. Mr. Black left Mon day morning for Wofford College where he will resume his studies. It is not known yet- who will take his place as pastor of the Methodist flock. The election at the mill was pulled off in great shape. It was democrat ically managed and went democratic solid even to the road bond issue. There were four of our good women assisting in the election and they were doing their jobs well. The atmos phere felt just a little different at some former polling times. We be lieve that politics are destined for the refining fires. And by the shades of our ancestors they need refining! We believe that women are doing thetr part to make the world better. We were happy to learn that the mill box went 100 per cent for good roads. 173 "yeas" were cast for the great cause. We can truthfully say we did our share. On next Sunday night Rev. John Bomar, of Winnsboro, will begin a series of evangelistic meetings at the Baptist church with Rev. George C. Gibson. He will preach each evening at the Stephen Greene Memorial church. There will be some good singing and some earnest searching messages. The entire village is urged to begin on Sunday evening and at tend all of, these meetings. Rev. Mr. Bomar needs no introduction to our people. Many of us are personally acquainted with him and know him as a vise, fearless preacher of God's wod. Begin now to pray and work for the success of these meetings. Sunday night service at 7 o'clock. During the week at 7:30. The pastor will preach at the morn ing service at the Baptist church next Sunday. The hour is 11:15. Why not make a very special effort to get to Sunday school at 10 o'clock next Sunday morning ? The pastor has been delighted recently to have the fathers and mothers come to Sun day school. Last Sunday we had two entire families present. How fine it is when parents bring their children to the Lord's house. People of the community the churches of your vil (Connueda on pae eight) ON SUBJECT OF GOOD ING HERE LAST SATURDAY The prospects of carrying the elec tion for a $500,000 bond issue for good- roads in Fairfield county in the election Tuesday was tremenduosly strengthened at a mass meeting here last Saturday. Governor Wilson G. Harvey and Mr. Brodnax, of Columbia, and CoL L. T. Kirkpatrick, chairman of the North Carolina Highway Commission, - d Mr. C.. 0. Kuester, secretary of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, addressed the meeting. This is the first time that the people of Winns boro have had an opportunity of hear ing Governor Harvey and they were most favorably impressed with his sincerity, simplicity of mannar, and clear forceful presentation of facts in connection with the building of roads and their benefits. Contrary to the usual tactics of politicians and office seekers, Governor Harvey did not ex press sympathy for the tax burden which the people have to carry, but stated that the fact that South Caro lina has the lowest tax rate in the U nited States is not a matter for South Carolinians to point to wgh pride; for just as they have the lowest tax rate, so also have they made the least head way in matters of material. progress. Col. Kirkpatrick was the principal address with. some pleasing anecdotes, and a tribute to South 'Carolina's governor; "When, ypi Qogh(aro ips geteti'll i m tak him. anid mika hinre* d -fMortfi 4U"hie said: C05Xwktc *,,most unusual dekre& coin*ies ik'omplishments of a carfta tlstian and forceful orator.::-or-a bmift an ho e held hs. aSu " :bo0uA th his praeitwwo A -see clation inmediately after and how later the South has made such ama ing strides forward as a manufact uring center, as compared with the country at large. He recited figures to prove his statements, and with a burst of oratory led his hearers into a dream of the South recovering her one-time power. He discussed this from the standpoint of material pro gress and education, mentioning the fact in the educational line North Carolina had moved from a relative standing among the states from forty seventh place to seventh; that on Monday morning one person out of every five in North Carolina would be in school. "North and South Ca rolina present advantages to manu facturers which no other States in the South possess, and standing shoul der to shoulder they can wrest from New England the textile industries which rightfully, are ours," he said, and one of the best inducements to offer them is good roads, along with schools and churches." We must have these things, and the office-seeker who will not assure us of these must be put aside.' He said that we must build roads not only to induce others to 'come here but also to protect our present interests. "The City of Char lotte is spending one million dollars on roads leading into South Carolina, to take trade out of South Carolina into Charlotte." He then left the field of generalities and applied him self to how good roads will affect Fairfield county. Col. Kirkpatrick seemed more familiar with some con ditions in the county than the average citizen and showed just how much ad ditional tax would have to be paid. "There should be no more room in a community for any man who is op posed to paying the extra tax for good roads." Mr. Kuester made a short address. His remarks were very pointed, strong driving sentences on the subject of good roads and their bearing on com munity life. Mr. Broadnax addressed the meet ing for a few minutes, stating that the only man who could rightfully ob ject to the issue is a dealer in auto mobile springs and the man who makes repairs on cars. With figures taken from the county's tax books he showed that this would be a good in vestment. He showed thht with a very small per capita payment the roads could be built, and out of the 'savings effected a bonus on the ex pense could be paid .back to the cit izens. A barbecue dinner was served aft 'er the meeting.
