Supervisor Feagle Will Co-operate In Effort to Have Government Ex pert Come to Newberry. Dr. C. T. Wy-ie. otf Plrperi hlia beenl ini cor ncithjXV; 11 te Unit -d Sta;:e~s governmn ttimeer5 'rela tive t0 :-eildilig an i-xpelrt on ial biling New'b-rrV to givo pmactical demlon stration of road building as it should be done. The overnent has agreed to send aii expert to Newberry to superin tenld the building- of one mile of good road on condition that the labor and macinery will be furnished, the work to be done under the supervision of I gven-lint nzad expeit. D. WyVv c -aime to New>erry some days Z11 and had a coiferenice with t1ie memlibers of the chamber of commerce aiid mezubers of tile ._ood roads lea gue of Newberry county. They agreed to take the matiter up with the county supervisor and Dr. WVche turned the co,1respondence over to them. Mr. Z. F. Wright. president of i chamber of commerce, had a confer ence yesterday with County Super visor Feagle, and .turned over to him the papers left by Dr. Wyche. County Supervisor Feagle is very anxious to "have the . experimental road built, and will at once answer the questions propounded by te gov ernment, and will cooperate in the matter. It is probable that the pub lic road from Newberry to Prosperitty just beyond the incorporate limits down towards Johnstone academy will be the section of road selected for this purpose. This will enable the people to see what can be done with clay and sand road, the sand -on this section of road being very heavy. No doubt tbe people who live along this road will also cooperate by furnishing teams and assisting in getting the material. Supervisor Feagle has been doing some of this class of work near Mr. Gibson's place. There is a portion of this road Which is very bad in wi ter on aecount of the clay. Mr. Fea gle has been mixing sand with this clay, and as a result this section of the road is as good as any part of the road from Newberry to Gibson's. A great deal of the road in Newber ry .county could be built by th-e use of sand where the road is clay and by the use of clay where the sand beds are heavy, and .in mos't cases the ma terial is -right at hand. A sand and lay r-oad is really a better road than the :naeadam, and the bui-lding of it is mueh cheaper. Dr. Wolling Made an Honorary Mem ber. The Juvenile Missionary society of Central c!hurchl is an active band of little workers. .The activre and very efficient lady manager is Mrs. P. C. Gailard, and'aunder n er direction they reised last year some: fifty dol lars for the cause. Now they have raised an extia- twenty .dollars with which to make Dr. Wolling a life member of :the society. Sunday after noon at the regular meeting a beauti ful certificate conferriiig this honor on the pastor was presented i-n the name of the society by little Miss Margaret 'Davis, who <read the fol lowing address of presentation: "We are glad to be able to make our beloved p)astor. Dir. Wolling, a life member of tshis society. We know that his 'whole hear-t and soul is in sympathy with our- missionary Mor,k and we appreciate his, presence and imterest. -Withi pleasure we now pr-esent him with this life membership eertifi eate.

JUDGE HYDRICK'S TERM An Important Question Raised in a Special Message to the General Assembly. In an important message to the general assem:bly by G'ov. Ansel at tention wa's called to the fact that it would be necessary to elect a circuit judge -to succeed Hon. D. E. Hydrick, who has resigned and who has sen?t in his resigna'tion as cireuit jr dge, to be come associaite just,iec of the supreme court. The term of Judge Hydriek expires in DIecember, 1909, and he takes office in April. 1909. Therefore it will be necesary to elect some -one for thie unexpired term of abourt 'eight months. The matter was referred to the judiciary cominittee and a report will sprobably be made tomorrow. The following is the message of Gov. Ansel:' "Gentlemen: I have the honor to inform your honorable . bodies that Judge D. E. Hydnick, judge of. the Seventli judicial circ?ui't of th'is State, has tendered to me his resignation as judge of said Seventib judicial aircuit, to ta'ke- effect April 15, 1909, and I have aeeepted said resignation to stake effect on said date. "I find that the .term of o)ffice of Judge Hyd'riek, as judge of the Sev enth judicial circuit, expires on the 15th~ of December. 1909, -and that his sucessor for ithe full term to begin on the 15th of December. 1909. will have to be selected by the general as sembgly at the present session. The unexpired termn of Judge Hydrick, femrnening on the 15th of April, 1909. and expiring on the 15th of De. eember. 190.9. will also have to be filled, either by an election by your 'honorable bo)dies. r' 'by appoin:t.ment 1y the governor. as the une.xpired tnrmf is for less than one year. Tihe (cnstitution of this State, 1895, ariti ele 5. sec't-in 11. provides as follows: All vacancies 'in thre 'supreme court tor inUfer r tr'ibunlalS shall be filled by eletiOnis as 'here prescribed : Pr-ovid e.

"My .construction of this section of the constitut-ion is that ithe general 'assembly, being now in session, has the 'power t'o fill this unexpired term. which i.<'for less tihan one year. by election.

So. far 'no tangible clew to the identity or whereabouts of the rob bers has been founid, but it seems probable that :t,he men came to Den e' .and are now :hiding in this city.
