' The registrars and board of coun
ty commissioners will meet at the
court house this morning at 10 o'clock
. to declare the result of the election.
It has been evident from the begin
ning ..that the people were in favor of
the bead issue for they realized the
-auvantage or navmg good roads and
they knew it could be done in no other
way. Those who were looking out tor
the county's welfare were not afraid
that the measure would be defeated !-y
-opposition but feared that it wouid be
defeated by those favoring the bond
tissue failing to vote and as it is neces
tsary to get a majority of the qualified
vriierttors to carry an election of this
kind all who failed to vote would have
been really voting against the measure.
The bonds are to be for $50,000 and
to run for 25 ycar3 and are to bear
a rate of interest not exceeding 0 per
cent. They cannot be redeemed until
the end of the 25 years. The commis
sioners are in hopes that they an sell
the bonds above par at 4 per cent, and
if that cannot be done a higher rate
of interest will be paid. The bonds
will be sold as soon as they can be ad
vertised the time required. The cooi
jnissioners say they will by no means
take less than the par . value of ihe
"bonds. Five per cent, will not be paid
if it is possible lo dispose of them prof
itably at a lower raee.
The people on yesterday placed in
the hands of those looking after the
interests of the county power to con
tinue the permanent road work. It is
the intention of the commissioners to
use better material in the road build
ing that has formerly been the cus
tom. The chairman went to Columbia,
S. C, only a few days ago in regard
to learning the prices and seeing what
kind of contract could be secured for
getting crushed granite. Granite will
probably be used for the road and the
material now used put on top as a

ern half of the state as well as mosi
of the northern and northeastern coun
ties, the week, was dry and favorable
for work, which progressel vigorously;
many if not most of the fields which
have been foul for several weeks were
given a thorough cultivation, and crop3
placed in good condition.. On the oth
er hand the temperature conditions
have not been favorable for the rapid
growth of vegetation. While the aver
age temperature was only slightly be
low normal, the nights have been, quite
cool, and unfavorable for both cotton
and corn. Tho day temperature, waJlc
not very high, in connection with
more auunJaut sunshine, were favora

the 1st to the 4th of Jun?.
In the western portion of the state
during" nearly the entire week uid
elsewhere during the last three day,
which were dry, excellent progress a as
made in cleaning and cultivating crops,
though many fields remain very grasy
in the central portion, where work in
Cotion is doing fairly welt where it
has been kept cultivated; tbe stands
remain geed but growth has been slow
on account of the absence of stimulat
ing high temperatures; la the majority
of counties where the crop is unculti
vated and grassy, and much of it not
yet chopped to stands, the condition
is poor; nevertheless the condition of
cottcn is such that a rapid recovery
would probably occur with warmer dry
