WINNSBOR O, S. C.
Wednesday, Nov. 15, 1905.
If the amount of advertising on
the part of home merchants is a
true index to the business life of
a community-and it is a pretty
well accepted principle that it
is-Winnsboro is not much of a
dead town these days.
Since cotton has maintained
such a fair price during the sea
son of heavy receipts, why should
it not go still higher? It looks
very much as if there are better
things in store for the man who
is freezing on to his cotton.
Even 12 cents cotton is more
than a dream.
The sowing of grain has been
very much retarded by the long
dry spell. Now that it has rained,
it should be the order of the day.
No farmer should fail to put in a
reasonable part of his land in
grain. It is only through the
raising of all his supplies at home
that the farmer can reap the prof
its that come from the raising of
cotton, even at eleven cents.
More, it is only through a system
of alternating crops that lands
can be inproved at the least cost.
Land sowed in grain and* then
followed by pease is in a far bet
ter fix for the next year's crop,
than it would be if continued in
clean cnltivation. The improve
ment of his land is a very con
siderable item with the farmer.
It is the sure way to permanent
prosperity. Improving the lands
and the using of better farm im
plements is gQing to be the solu
tion of the labor question, that is
becoming to be more and more
vexing to the Southern farmer,
who is going to have to do some
good head work or be forced to
have to do lots of work with his
A feature that has counted for
no little in the rapid harvesting
of the cotton crop, has been the
fine weather. This counted not
only in getting the crop from the
fiela, but also in getting it to the
market. The roads have been as
good, as they can be under the
present crude way in which they
are attended to. The superiority
of the roads in this scetion after
a long dry spell like there has'
been as compared with what they
are in wet weather ought .to be
a fine object lesson to the farmers
as to tho importance of keeping
the roads in better shape all the
while. It is a big item to a
farmer to be able to haul two
bales of cotton, where otherwise
he would be able to haul only
one. The saving of his own time
and the saving of the additional
labor required means much, es
pecially since labor is becoming
so scarce. Better roads are one
of the ways in which the labor
problem, that is coming more
and more home to the Southern
people, is goong to be solved.
And Spartanburg did do for the
dispensary just what was expect
ed of it, voted it out by an over
whelming majority. Greenville also
voted on the proposition of dis
pensary or no dispensary yester
day and prob abilities are strong
that it too is now rid of the Groat
Moral Institution. With these
two very populous counties in the
pioibiton ranks there are -now
fourteen of the counties in South
Carolina without a dispensary.
['bese counties represent decided
ymore than one-third of the entire
population of the State. Several
other counties will vote on this
ale proposition within the next
few weeks and it is now pretty
well nigh certain that some of
these counties will be added to
the counties that favor prohibiton
rather than the present system
of dealing with the whiskey traf
fic. While the number, who
have voted in each of the counties
in which elections have been held
has not been as large as it should
have been there is no question
about it that the sentiment of the
majority of the people of the
Paletto State is decidedly in
favor of prohibition.

Beggar Prince Coming.
Manager McMaster ann:uuces
Lhat after considerable negotia
toi he has closed contracts with
the management of "The Beggar
Prince" Opera for an appearance
at the Thespian Hall on Monday
Nov. 20, for one night ouly.
This engagement Mr. McMaster
considers the most notable in the
amusement line that he has effect
ed in some time, the company re
quiring a large guarar'tee for one
performance. The piece is bnilt
on operatic lines enacted by per
formers who are trebly gifted
being vocalists, farceurs, and
possessing dramatic ability as
well-"The Beggar Priuce" this
season being composed of these
three entertaining elements. This
edition has been edited by Wm.
H. Lydell, author of "Gayest
Manhattan" and other New York
Travesty Successes. The present
ing company is beaded by Miss
Etta Merris, soprano and come
dienne, well and favorably known
to patrons of light opei a, for the
past seven seasons having had
the responsible roles in numerous
musical reviews of importance.
As a fun-maker few ladies can
impart to an audience that feel
ing of spontaneity and good
fellowship that Miss Merris can.
She possesses a style ail her own,
and is ably assisted by clever
comedians and pretty girls cos
tumed in fetching gowns. The
latter, daring the action of the
play, will introduce for the first
time here the "Sammy Girls;"
"The Noble Firemen," "Belles
and Beaux at the Sea Shore,"
and numerous other musical and
vocal ensemble numbers. The
latest lightning effects known to
stageland are employed in enhanc
ing a performance that will be a
real loss to miss witnessing.
Manager McMaster enterprise in
securing attractions of this calibrs
will no doubt be appreciated by
our playgoers, and a big house is
assured. Seats are on sale at

Observe The Day.
For the past few years thei
stores in Winnsboro have been
closing on Thanksgiving Day,
but each time it has been 1
necessary for a petition to be
carried around, asking for the1
closing of the stores. The dag
is the one national holiday and
should be observed as su'ch by
all places of business, nor should
be any need for a petition asking
for its observance. Especially
ought that to be so this time, for
this county has been exceedingly. 1
blessed with good crops, whicht
have brought a good price. The
county was never in better con
dition financially. The day should
be observed not only as a day of
rest, but it should be made the
occasion for a real thanksgit~ing
for the great prosperity that has
come to the county. Certainly
every business house will be
closed for the day, so that the
clerks . may spend the day in
whatever way they see fit. They
have had a busy time of it and
opportunity to have the day off
will count. for much in putting
them in better shape for the
heavy work that will be before
them during the month of Decem
