Tuesday, June 25, 1912/
Last week business called the writ
er from Newberry to Whitmire, and
again from Newberry to Pomaria. The
trip to Whitmire was> made in an auto/B
3 on xxrith Mr. Mc
DCLODiie uru muuci x j .? ?
Hardy Mower as driver, and in going
we selected the route via Beth Eden,
Cromer's, C. H. Shannon's, W. J. Duncan's,
the Brick house, JoVj W.
Scott's. This road was worked last
year by the chaingang, but the heavy
* rains of the winter put it in worse
condition than it would have been if
it had not been worked. A trip was
made over it in April by. private conveyance,
and at that time it was almost
impassable. It was all that two
strong mules could do to pull the vehicle.
If the road had been dragged
regularly, it would now be in fine
6hape, but not being dragged it is in
holes and very rough, except a short

where it has been dragged.
} This is a fine section of the country,
and the crops look well and are
in fairly good condition, but the peo;
pie need to be aroused to the import<-?f

<UlVO Wi gl'iug OV1UV
the care of the public road.
One stop was made at Mr. W. J.
Duncan's and again at Mr. W. C.
Scott's and at Mr. N. B. Johnson's.
These gentlemen and ?11 their neighbors
have comfortable homes and everything
wears the air of prosperity.
At Whitmire, the objective point of
my visit, a conference was had with
/\f tVio c/>hnnl with a view

| of setting up all past indebtedness,
I -which was done, and also to discuss
i the advisability of arranging a State
high school at Whitmire.
The people are very much interested
in their school and with their present
income and the increase which will
come in a very short time from the in
crease or me taxaDie property, meit;
will be plenty of money to maintain
one of the best schools in the State
without any increase in taxation.
The trustees expect to employ a !
competent superintendent for the
coming year and will at once take
steps to establish a high school. There
is already a comfortable and modern
brick school hou^e with ample room
and appliances for a first class school.
The work on the enlargement of the
Glenn-Lowry Manufacturing Company's
plant is progressing nicely and
when completed, it will be the larg(
pst mill in this section. The town of I
Whitmire also has a number of modern
and up-to-date mercantile establishments,
and with the increase in
population, which will follow the enlargement
of the mill, there will be,
of course, an increase in the business
done by the town.

town at Whitmire and it is now a fine
trade centre.
On the return trip, the road via
John M. Suber's, Charles Suber's and
the Caldwell place was taken. It is,
in some respects, .in better condition
than the other road, though very hilly
and in many places very much in need
of the split log drag.
Saturday afternoon another trip was
taken in the same car with Mr. W. C.
Waldrop at the wheel. The purpose

fo meet with the trustees of the Zion
school about four miles from Pomaria.
Going we went via Prosperity, and
acros by St. Paul's. About an hour
was spent in Pomaria and it was
gratifying to hear the unanimity with
which the people are going to vote
bonds for' a new school house in this
district, and the enthusiasm they are
now manifesting in the development
and improvement in their school facilities.
At Zion every patrons of the disi
trict, except one or two, was present.
The object of the meeting was to talk
over school interests in the community
and to suggest trustees for the
coming year. It is a good sign when
you can get all of the patrons of the
district present and when they are
willing to listen attentively to talks
pertaining to the betterment of the
school in their community.
The school house is very pleasantly
situated near Mr. M. H. Folk's and Dr.
|e. 0. Hentz', and the building has
been' erected in recent years and is
very comfortable, though it does not
conform in every detail to the approved
plans gotten out by Clemson college.
At the invitation of the trustees,
the county superintendent of
education talked to the patrons for
some while on the school situation
generally and made some suggestions
as to him seemed fitting.
Returning, we came back by Mr. J.
L. Keitt's, the Wadlington place and
the county home. The road here is
very much in the same condition as
the other road, in need of attention,
and of the s<plit log drag. The road
from Prosperity to Newberry is in
good condition, but from Prosperity
down to. Mr. Guss Singley's the road
is in great need of attention as well
as the other part of the road back to
Newberry. The crops in this section
seem to be in good condition and looking
well. E. H. A.
Last week it was stated in the
newsDaDers that Col. Tom B. Felder,
of Atlanta, had engaged his berth in a
certain train, which would leave Atlanta
at a certain time and pass
through South Carolina on a certain
time. We rather suspected at the
time, this publicity as to the train and
what schedule Col. Felder would take
was rather in the shape of a bluff. A

out and three days before Sunday, it
was again stated that Col. Tom B. Felder
would not go to Baltimore on the
Democratic special as previously announced,
but that he had left on
Thursday night for Charlotte and that
on Friday he would leave for New
The following is from the Augusta
Chronicle or Saturday, uoi. jpeiaer
keeps the water muddy as to which
way he went or will go: 4
Everybody can stop worrying now
about Tom B. Felder and Governor
Blease, thereby causing further distress
to a certain well-known journal
hereabouts. Vlr. Felder, be it known,
left quietly for Cincinnati last night
on important legal business, and he
will go direct from there to Baltimore.
Therefore, the danger of Governor!
Blease attempting to hold up the Bal
timore special in order to grab therefrom
the Atlanta attorney, is past, and |
all concerned can breathe easy again. |
Incidentally those wagering that Mr. j
Felder would not be on the Georgia i
special are cashing in.
Brother Aull, of the Newberry Her
aid and News, admonishes us not to
be influenced by the big and little
dailies-. If the big and little dailies
are honest and upright we can not
but yield to their influence. We see
no objection to following in the footpath
of Truth.?Gaffney Ledger.
We calculate that this is a slightly
different answer from which Brother
Aull expected. It is a mighty good
one, nevertheless. Ed DeCamp knows
what's right and what's wrong. He
also knows what is true and what is
; false.?Greenville Pietimonr.
You do not always calculate with;
j accuracy. Our advice was to follow
i in the footpath of Truth, and we did
not expect Ed to do otherwise, but
we opined it might be good to warn
him of certain influences, for we love
the old boy. We only wish that all
newspapers and newspaper writers
followed Truth.
Mr. W. E. McGee., who only a little
while ago was traveling passenger
agent of the Southern at Augusta, was
promoted to passenger agent at Charleston
and has now been promoted to
the position of assistant passenger
j agent at Columbia. By attention to
j duty, he deserves his rapid promotion.

Friday morning at 9.30 o'clock Mrs.
Clarissa Bridges, one of the oldest citizens
of Newberry county, was called
to rest from a life made up of many
wonderful episodes, which made her
one of the most loved and respected
citizens of the entire South.
"Aunt Classy," as she was better
| tillUWily was l/vi ii 111 n.i.\cn jl^ui aci i j
22, 1822. She was 90 years old, a
widow 50 years. ?3?) re her narriage
she was Miss Clarissa Weeks. She
was a member of the Baptist church,
the funeral services' being conducted
by her pastor, Rev. T. H. Garrett, at
the Prosperity cemetery Saturday
morning at 10 o clock.
One of many little interesting episodes
of her life happened in the autumn
of 1862, when Wheeler's cavalry
jwas camped at Prosperity, with many
sick and wounded in the ranks. Aunt
Classy, like many other Southern women,
fought her share of the battle
for her country?a woman's country,
nursing and caring for the sorrowful
and the suffering, the sick and the
poor alike, and when those boys marched
on to the front there were many
broken voiced good-byes to "Aunt
Classy." She is survived by two
granddaughters, Mesdames Wm. Havird,
of Silverstreet, and Archie McLean,
of Blythewood, one nephew, Mr.
W. A. Moseley, and one niece, Mrs. G.
D. Brown, and a host of friends.

to witness a speed contest between the
Indian and the Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
The race was pulled about
6.30 o'clock, for one mile only. Timekeepers
were placed at each mile post
tr\ irefnrd thp tinift made. John T.
Cromer and Thos. E. Wicker were the j
"professional amateurs" doing the |
riding?the former on the Indian and
the latter on the Harlev-Davidson.
Four races were run, and each was
'won by Cromer, the fastest run being
made in 54 seconds against Wicker in
60 seconds.
While this did not lower any of the
track records, all those standing by
said it was going some, and it was enthusiastically
enjoyed by all.
