FRIDAY. APRIL 7, 1010.
The State of South Carolina has
lost a worthy citizen in the death of
Chas. A. Smith of Timmonsville. He
passed away in Baltimore a few days
ago. He served his State and his God
with a fidelity not often,witnessed in
this world. He was a man of sterling
character and his life was one worthy
of a man.
ROAI) BOND ISSUE TUESDAY.
The voters of Union county will
cast their ballots for or against the
issuing of bonds for good roads Tuesday.
I have no hesitation in saying
that my ballot will po for pood roads.
T could not conscientiously vote
apainst the measure. I want prom*
roads, better than we have ever had,
and I believe the bond issue affords
the means for obtaining them. Many
do not apree with me, and I have no
condemnation for those who disagree
with me. The question, as I see it,
is: Are we willing to tax ourselves
for the purpose of havinpr better
roads? Are we willinpr to pay for
pood roads? Somebody has to pay
for every advancement, and if prood
roads come, somebody will have to
pay for them. I am willinpr to pay
my part. I am willinpr to pay my part
for the reason that I pret considerable
use out of the roads?I am a user of
the roads of Union county. I can
save time journeyinpr over prood roads.
It takes lonprer to make a journey
over bad roads than it does over prood
roads. Time is money. It costs less
to journey ovfr a prood road than it
does over a bad road, and a dims
saved is a dime made. There is less
wear and tear in usinp a pood road
than in usinp a bad road. Moreover,
do not see in the bond issue anv
fearful injustice to the generation unborn,
as many profess to do. It
seems to me the coming erenera^ion
rr - Is to get more service out o'P'fffe*good
roads than I may hope to get out of
them, and for that reason, it seems
but just that they should pay for the
roads. Then, again, I am not afraid
of the committee appointed to carry
out the plans in the road building.
They are good, sensible business men,
our neighbors, all of them. I do not
see how we could ever expect to get
any better committee, no matter who
appointed it. For these and many
other reasons, I expect to cast my ballot
for good roads. If the bond issue
goes through, it will be to me a pleasing
thing. If it killed, I do not expect
to shed a single tear. I have long
since found out that matters such as
the bond issue is no life and death
case, and it is nothing worthy of
"throwing a fit" about.
Buffalo, April 4.?A great revival
is now in progress at the Baptist
church, started on Sunday, March 2I>,
and interest continues to increase at
every service. Rev. Mr. Adams of
North Carolina is doing the preaching.
He is a Baptist minister of wide influence
and vital leadership in his
groat denomination, lie is a scholar
of wide attainments and a preacher
of fresh, original thought and of rare
eloquence. There was a great spiritual
awakening at last Sunday's services,
the pastors of the other
churches cancelled their appointments
and all denominations worshipped together.
The church is being filled at
each service, every available seat and
standing room is being occupied. It
can not be learned now when the
meeting will close. Interest is growing
and many souls are being saved.
The Ladies' Aid society at this place
is doing a grand work, and this noble
band of Christian women are to be
commended for the many charitable
acts and kind deeds which they are doing.
Under the competent leadership
of Mrs. P. C. Hundley the society gave
a box supper at the mill office Saturday
night which was thoroughly enjoyed,
the proceeds amounting to

Resolutions on death of Mrs. Elmer

we can only how our heads in submission
to his holy will and say, "Thy
will, not ours, be done."
Re it resolved:
1st. The Woman's Missionary Society
of New Hope church has lost
through her death one of its most con- '
secrated, influential and earnest worn- 1
2nd. That the church and entire 1
community lias suffered a jjreat loss
by her removal from our midst;
did. That a copy of these resolu- \
lions be copied in the county paper;
4th. That a copy of these resolu- \
tions bo sent to her family of husband '

May God strengthen and uphold \
them through all thinps.

Oakland, April 4.?The rain whidh |
fell yesterday was needed very much '
on the prain crops and pardenh and ,
this morninp everythinp seems to be ,
very much refreshed. Some land had
already potten too hard to ploupb hut ,
now that it has rained practically all
farm work will be carried on with all ,
ease. There is more land now ready
for plantinp than I have ever seen at (
this date in April. A preat deal ot
corn has been planted and within the
next few days the preater part of
up-land corn will he planter. Some
few farmers have their whole farm ,
ready for the seed and of course this
should be proof enouph that there is
no increase in the cotton acreape this
year. The povernment advises the
farmer to plant more corn this year ;
than ever before and now that some
of them are about to have som > leisure
time it will be the preatest opportunity
ever to increase the acreape for
corn. If war conditions doesn't improve
to some extent within the nert .
few weeks there is a likelihood of outown
country consuminp her own food
products without erportinp any of it
to foreipn nati'ns. Althouph the advice
piven is not consistent with the
actions taken. They want more food .
products raised hut still they allow
it to he shipped away every day,
which causes a scarcity here.
Considering the large number of
horses and mules that are shipped into
this county every spring it seems that .
it would soon become overstocked .
with work animals, hut these figures
will show what becomes of them.
Since Christmas and in a scope of two
miles square five horses and mules
have died. A few days ago Mr. J. E.
Cault lost his driving pony. It was
sick hut a few hours.
Mrs. N. 1>. Littlejohn and Miss
Susie Black of Spartanburg returned ,
home today after spending a few days
here with their parents, Mr. and Mrs.
W. A. E. Black.
Messrs. Sidney Howell and Paul
Skelton of Union were visiting friends
and relatives here last Sunday.
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Parr had as
their guest for the week-end Miss
I.ouise Cault of Kelton.
Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Ivey of the
Brown's Creek section spent the weekend
with Mr. and Mrs. C. G. Ivey.
