Sound Doctrine for Men of
Every Class andt( Condition In:
.Rev. Victor 1. Masters, a native of
Anderson Jounty, delivered an -ad.
dress recently before the Beech Island
Farmers' Club, which is worthy of ro
production in our columns, and is at
follows :
A review of some of the most saheni
points which have been fixed, showing
the surpassing importance of road im
provement can never be out of place
in this country of ours, where we can
make no advance in our institutions
except as we educate the voters up to
seeing the need of such advance.
It is not generally known that early
in the last century the national gov
ernient for quite a period took an in
terest in and constructed public high
ways. John C. Calhoun was a cham
pion for the cause. The most endur
i,ig, tangible fruit of the agitation was
a splenlidly constructed road from the
Atlantic seaboard across the Alle
ghamies through Ohio, Indiana ai
Illinois, to the Mississippi. This road
is still in existence, and has done its
shaie as an object lesson in favor of
better roads.
With the advent of railroads and a
contemporaneous financial panic, gov
ernmental road improvement |went to
the wall, against which it has nestled
since, until recently. Vastly import.
ant to the country's welfare as is the
condition of the public highways,
never a word was spoken in a Presi
dent's message until soie years ago,
Mr. McKinley in four lines called at

of Agrinul' "re was co-operating with
citizens of the republic in every sec

There is gradually transpiring a
greater intelligence as to the value 01
good roads. Government experimenti
show that in the South the average
cost of hauling a ton a mile is25 cents
that the average length of haul t<
market is twelve and one-half miles,
therefore it costs the Southern farmet
on the average $3.12 to haul a ton of
stuit. Not content with this result, I
have questioned fat mers who . have
tigured out practical y the same cosl
per mile. Now, if a farmer haulb
twelve tois of stuff to each horse
worked on the farm, and runs say a
Live horse farm, his hauling for the
year will cost lsi , a much larger sun
than he is likely to suspect.
Government calculations, based on
censua reports, reveal." te. ahtoundin

The value of goodl roads receivem
new light from the statement of au
tbenticated tract,ion tests. On asphalt
it, takes a force of only seventeer
pounads to move a ton; on macada

is something to stimulate heroism it:
tackling an up-country hill, or an up

is an attractive novelt,y in the sheei
uncertainty as to whether the next
slough of mud' and water -will com.
pletely engulf you, and t,here is a stim.
ulating uncertainty as to just, how hard
it will be to surmount that, thirty

But t.he dead-level, mountainous, dle
bilitating, unrelenting, always hard

t or a man's feelings, killing to his stock
andI paralyzing to his purse. A sand
bed to me represents despair. It
never changes, it is always there. It
always demands a tax of four hundred
per cent, of surplus energy needed for
something else. It is t,he climax of
discouragement to a traveler and of
p)roltiestroying expenses to a far
I said loose sand was the worst pos
sible road and offered statist,ics to
show that it is four times as hard to
dIraw a load over sand as over hard
clay. However, there is one
thing worse tihan a sand bed, it is a
sand hill. FCxperiments show that, it,
takes somet,hing more than six times
t,he power to draw a load up a five and
one-half per cent, grade on any sort of
road tihan It takes to draw t,he same
load on level roads. Now if it is four
times as hard to draw a load on level
sandy roads as on level hard clity It
wil rtake twenty-.four times the power

take to draw the? se lotad on god

you, suppose you refresh yourow

ket In competition with them. If yai
do not believe it look at the run dowmi
condition of, for Iistance, certain sec
tions of Edgefleld and Aiken counties
which are handicapped by a long haul
and bad roads to market.
Sand roads are such an incubus in
some special attention to their im
provement will be fit. The standard
local .and also the governmental 0t.
perimental treatment of sand roads is
simply a layer of clay. Comparatively
speaking, sand roads require no dram
age, they are constitutionally too dry,
if they were damuper they would be
better. The only drainage requisite is
that there be some ditches so con
structed at threatened points that they
will take off any deluge of water re
sultant on hard rains so that tho bed
of the road many not be' washed lown
into a great gully, something very easy
for a sand road to do.
Local road experts tell me it will
not cost more than $100 per mile to
put a layer of clay seven inches thick
across a space eight feet wide on a
road. In this community clay can al
ways be had within a half mile of the
point where it is needed.
If good clay roads can be construct
ed for $100 or even $250 per mile, it
would he a magnificent investment for
any community with sand roads.
Figures given above show that sand is
four times as hard to haul over as good
clay. But say it is only twice as hard,
over good clay roads twice the load
could be carried, so it would take
hut half the time and labor at
half the expense. If twelve tons
are hauled to a one-horse farm at
a cost of $2.00 per ton and there are
200 horse farms in a township, it would
take $4,800 to do the hauling for that
township. On good clay roads it would
cost not over $2,400, a saving of
$2,400, which would clay 24 miles of
The above is somewhat theoretical,
I grant, but it is based on facts and
common sense. Though the figures
may not be worth much in an exact
computation of cost, they speak loudly
in showing the presence of an evil con
dition as to rural transportation, a con
dition which must be remedied, else
our country will fil behind more pro
gressive sections which are awakening
to the fact that good roads pay.
Good roads mean good schools, well
attended churches, genial neighbors,
intelligent citizens. Good roads mean
valuable lands. In no case recorded
has the accrument in the value of lands
failed to more than cover the cost of
road improvement!
Good roads mean that the towns
will no longer deplete the country of
many of its best citizenas; they mean
rral free mail delivery. If all other
planks were knocked out of the party
platform in South Carolina for the next
ten years and a good broad plank look
ing to road improvement was inserted,
it would be better for every community
in South Carolina, albeit fewer axes of
politicians would be ground and fewer
prejudices of voters would be aroused

" Oh, I don't believe that," came a

the contest.
From then to the present time he
as had the following fights with no

with George W. Murray, in the first of
which contests Murray was seated and
Jol. l0illIott unseated, and In 1900 with
Beckott, a negro preacher.
Thus, after eighteen years of relent
ess, laborious and expensive fighting,
Joloncl i;lliott reclaimed the dist"iet

Hair Vigor stopped the falling and
restored the natural color.''-Mrs.
E. Z. Benomme, Cohiocs, N. Y.
It's impossible for you
not to look old, with the
color of seventy years in
your hair! Perhaps you
are seventy, and you like
your gray hair! If not,

In less than a month your
gray hair will have all the
dark, rich color of youth.
