The News Record
I note with interest your cor
respondents letter from Trust
;. ' ; i N. C signed. A Subscriber, re
lative to the survey and pro
posed road, from Litte Pine tj
Spring Creek. Since the' loca
- tion of this road primarily rests
upon me, it is, may be, not out
of place that I say something
about this survey, ; It 'may be
that some property owners
think that'an engineer has little
'-' regard, or little care' for farm
lands through which he locates
roads. This is not the fact I
. have never surveyed roads
through men s lands that I did
not regret the necessity of do-
: ing so I saw a woman, stand
ing in her garden, and when I
told her that it was necessary
for the. road to go through her
" garden the tears, great big round
; , '-tears, came to her eyes and ran
down her cheeks I felt like
getting off some where and tak
ing a little cry. Her husband
stood there and said, wife there
is no other, way for the road to
y go. . We can make a g a r d e n
. somewhere else.' There was
magnanmtiy of the highest " or
der, to mak e roads across these
mountains wonderful mountains
that they are it is necessary,
absolutely necessary tp go (hr
cugh somebody's land.-.
There is no other way unless
we just get on top of the moun
tain and fall off. Too much of
that method of building roads
' j;as been foUQwedteadl-iJiS
"'trouble with this, system is that
the laws of gravity have decreed
that we can fall only one way
down, We cant fall up the moun
tain. When God made this
country, He made a right pla.ee
for roads. It is my duty to fAqd,
this "right place", it 1 rail rn
: ' this, then some other engineer
will follow m e sometime and
find this "right place and find
my mistakesv To survey a road,
like this, it is necessary to fol
. low the grade line where ever
it leads, regardless of division
,or property lines. I do not know
the extent or boundary lines of
' Mr Ebb's lands but I was told
"hy those living up there the
' , survey went through Mr. Ebb's
lands in fine .shape leaving the
land both above and below well
watered. -However this survey
is only a preliminary and tenta
tive' location and if 'there '" 'it a
better way that I can XM cx,i

Rail To Improve,
; Its Lines.
Washington, D. C. May Thir
ty three thousand tons of steel
rail have just been purchased
by the Southern Railway Sys
tem for delivery during the last
six months' of 1923. Included
in this order are 25,500 tons of
100 pound section and 7,500 tons
of 85 pound section rail. This
brings the Southern's purchase
of new steel for 1923 to 73,000
tons, 40,000 tons having been
bought earlier in the year. :
The largest share of the new
order went to the Tennessee
Coal, Iron & Railroad Company,
which will roll 23,000 tons at
its Ensley, Ala, plant, 8,000
tons were ordered from the Be
thlehem Steel Co., and 2,000
tons from, the Illinois Steel Co.
The 100-pound rail will be
used in carrying out tne pro
gram of tie Southern to relay
the Washington-Atlanta, Cincinnati-Chattanooga,
lines of high traffic density with
this heavy raih . This work is
now in progress between. Man
assas and Orange, Va., between
Grreensboro and Charlotte, N
C., between Knoxville and Mor
ristown, Term., and between
Somerset, Ky, and Oakdale,
Tenn. ..' -V--'.'-'-.
Heavy tie plants are being
used wherever the 100-pound
rail isTerng laid,Vgivirig added
strength and smoothness to the
track' :.;. ,r,.' ' "
A large amount of serviceable
85 pound rail is being ; released
and transferred to lines which
are now equipped with lighter
rail, x ... . -
Which isThe Way?
It was our privilege to hear a
sermon to the young girls who
were graduating from one of our
schools and the subject was which
way? In our life there comes
times, when it IsShard for os to
decide on the! questions which
come to us and in . the decision
hangs sometimes the makica: or
the destruction of our future life
and thd welfare of others. There
is always a parting of the ways
ando follow one way means
that we get miles off from our
destination . " The other leads ul
timately to the place we want to
go. un some roans mere are
signboards which direct and on
others there are none and we
have to depend on dthers to tell
ug. Many times the tourist asks
which the better way and the
shorter to a place and we who
know tell. In the greater places
in the way of life there are some
times signboards but on others
nothing and we. have to depend
on the intuitions. Some trails
across the desert have trees blaz
ed or something that can direct
us. tsax, even mese ian some
times. So we have' to depend
on the inner intuition or voice
and there is a passage which Eys

The School Board and the

Saturday to go over the budget
for the coming year of the coun

passed by the last legislature it
necessary that both board
pass on the budget and then the
rates for taxes are made in vie w
of needs of the schools. It was
not possible to do anything as
the amount to be received from
the state had not been received.

Looking out for others and not

in life we have to look out for
ourselves. We must make a liv

thought of others in mind. A.
man or woman who ,doesf not:
make a living and care for his or
hers does not amouut to anything?
but at the same time we must
not think of ourselves only. We
