The prardeners throughout the coun ty are having a hard time keeping u| their spirits. The dry weather ha: simply put an end to all operations. We feel sure that Judge Sease wil receive the commendation of the worthy citizens of the county in his strict handling of witnesses. The time of the court and the inconvenience oi the many is too often interfered with by the tardy witness. Judge Seast will have no more of this, hut, if necessary, will lock such tardy ones ir jail. He is right in this determination. We beg to suggest to our city authorities the necessity for putting an end to the needless noise caused by the automobiles and motorcycles taking Main street with the mufflers wide open. It is a needless disturbance, and could be suppressed with out hardship to anybody. Every automobile. motorcycle and motor driven vehicle should be operated with closed muffler in the city limits. The city ordinance, if we mistake not, is quite specific in forbidding such praatice. We respectfully urge that the city authorities enforce this regulation. There will be many citizens who will hold you in lasting remembrance if you so do. One feels desirous that all citizens might be willing to conform to the law. Nobody desires that anybody should be made to suffer. But the blind tiger is least to be pittled, for it is a violation lof law for personal gain that is the basis of this nefarious btififiifiSV?"Tft~nTIrivBVi 'of cases against blind tigers word tried in this week's court. Some plead guilty, some were acquitted, some were convicted. One thing that the blind tiger operators seem to have overlooked is the fact that the law now is a dangerous thing to tamper with. It is no longei possible to viojate the law with impunity. A man who sells whiskey i'r South Carolina now is a candidate foi the chaingang. The farmers of Union county should he interested in creameries which arc being established under the Extensior Division of Clemson College. Recently there has been established such ar institution in Spartanburg and effort.' are being made to have creamerj routes not only from the various sections of Spartanburg county, but from Union county as well. Unti the movement gets fully under way Union could not support such an enterprise. There would not be feeders enough to make it a success. But it is an easy matter to pet into the Spartanburg system, and then, when many farmers are enlisted and the outlook warrants it, a creamery could be established here. This movemel on the part of Clemson College is one that should lead to great results Next week we will publish articles bearing on this subject. LETT Fit FROM J. If. If AIM EES. JR. Oreenwood, S. C., May 15, 1010. Mr. L. M. Rice, Union, S. C. l>ear Mr. Rice: 1 have intended writing you a letter all this session, especially about our ball games. We played Porter Military Academy last and sure did beat them. They beat us in foot ball but we played them three games of ball and won all three of them. It was the heighth of our ambition to beat them and we did it. Hurrah! We worked harder than we ever did and the game resulted in 4 to 1 and we celebrated that night as it gave us the prep championship. Our man, Hough, struck out 16 men and is the best prep pitcher in the State. Our team is batting over .'100. Out of 140 runs we scored 86, playing 13 games and losing only three. We have won from Erskine, Porter and Linwood. Erskine won the State championship and we challenged them ( for a game, but they would not play us. Hope you will get enough out of this to write a few lines for the dear old Times. With best wishes, Yours truly, J. H. Bartles, Jr. i BUFFALO ?
