day. The chief executive was much
gratified at the interest being mani

Mr. Bickett seemed highly pleased
with everybody and everything Tran

The following men were elected
on May 6 to fill th^ offices of the town

Mayor, W. P. Hogsed; Aldermen,
J. W. Glazener, L. E. Powell and B. B.
These men were nominated in a

ville, S. C. quotes at length from the
Brevard News of May the 9th in re
gard, to the road improvement now
going on in TralksylVania.
In regard to the JoMfes Gap road
the GreenyiUe;^per sayr:
“If tlra Jones Gap road in Green
ville county is' soon, put in shape by
J. W. Norwood and others who will
attempt to secure Federal aid for the
purpose, Greenville will be on direct
line of a route to Pisgah Mountain,
beautiful spot in the highlands of
North Carolina. Building of this
road from Brevard, N. C. to Pisgah
Mountain^will soon begin according
to the Brevard Nff^ and if the Jones
Gap road*ilk built this summer Green
ville will also have the benefit of it.”
' All of which is true. A good road
benefits the territory adjacent to it
not only but also aids in developing
the resources of a*widespread area.
We hope the people of Gxjeenville
County will see their way clear to
follow without delay the lead of Tran
