THE ROADS ARE BAD.
If the momeers of the legislaturo
could bo carried over some of the
rough roads that are now to be
found in every county in the Piod
mont section, if they could be
carried in the ordinary wagons
and buggies used for transporta
tion in this section and thereby
become experimelentally acquainted
with the eon(litions that obtain
with us now, wo would have no
anxiety as to futuro Iogisiation on
the road question. Compromises
Would bo spoodily ellcted through
which low country represettit ives
would yield to the obvious necessi
tv of a law that couldl be made to
apply most broadly where such latp
plication is most needed. Consti
tutional restrictions surely 'an be
circulventod in at case like this.
I1 we don't get. a more eli-etivo road
law, and that right early, the peo
will take to the woods.
110MER ALONZO RICHIEY.
Pickens wats shocked last Thurs.
(lay morning when peopl( awoke to
learn the sad intelligence of the
death of homer Rickey, one of the
most promising young men of the
towi, which occurred the night
lie was at young mnan whose
qualities marked him for a life of
usefulness. By his courteous and
manly bearing through tho brief
span of years in which h was por
m11itted to meet with his I'ollowmen
and impress his charae ter upon
them, he won the esteem of men
and made of every acquaintance a
friend, It is always with heavy
grief that we come to the task of
speaking of a departed frieid, but
it is indeed a sad duty to record
the fact of death when the Reaper
Comes and takes from our midst
one0 so young-sQ full of hope and
jiust coming into years of ripe
manhood and usefulniess-one who
was the soul of honor--a voungl
man whose life,was full. of promise.
His death is a lesson to us all
the remembrance of his life, so un
selfish and so true to the duties of
life, may help other men to main.
tain in all theiu walks that high
Ieg att for the obligations that rest
uipon each of us, without due ob
servance of which woe may never
hope to reap the reward of the jiust.
Tji. his stricken family the boart
felt sympathy of the whole communn
Theirs is indeed a loss in which
the whole community shares.

"One of thme saddest tragedie

the life of a good and usAful man

Mr. Craig will be remembered by
many in WaIhalla as the eflicient
