A WORD ABOUT OUR CITY
A TOWN WITH ALL MODERN CITY
I Read What Luxuries Orangeburg Of
fers Prospective Residents and
Then Think It Over.
In our travels up and down this
good old State of South Carolina
from the mountains to the seashore
we will say, without any intention
of indulging in mere phrases to
please or flatter the people of the
goodly little city of Orangeburg,
that we have never seen a place of ts
size that equals it in all respects. It
surpasses all we have ever seen in
natural beauty and scenery The
same may be said of its streets and
its stores and beautiful residences,
and churches and school houses All
combine to make a lovely little city.
Then too, Orangeburg has all the
modern comfort of a large city with
out any of its inconveniences from
heat and crowded flats. Orangeburg
ha3 a fine system of waterworks and
stwerajge, owned and operated by
the city for benefit and comfort
of her people. She also owns an
electric lighting plant, which fur
nishes llgths to the city as well as
the citizens, and power for operating
numerous sxna.ll and large industries.
All the preses and machinery in The
Times and Democrat offibe is run
by electric power furnished by the
city electric plant
Orangeburg has the Gamewell Fire
Alarm System to summon her ex
cellent fire department to the scene
of a fire. She has paved sidewalks
and streets, and other comforts for
those who live within her borders.
We do not say these things in a
boastful way but simply to let those
who do not live here know what we
have in the way of modern conven
iences and comforts. These are pub
lic utilities owned by the city and op
erated for the benefit of all the
people at or about cost. In this
spect Orangeburg surpasses many of
the large cities of the country, which
shows she is abreast of the time.
The business concerns of the city
are on a solid foundation and are
able to met all competition by, sell
ing goods at most reasonable prices.
The banks have a combined oapl
al, surpassing many larger towns in
the State. They are ably officered,
conservatively managed, and are do
ng their full share towards the de
elopment of legitimate enterprises
and business ventures. Then we
have flourishing building and loan
associations that help men of no
means to buy comfortable homes.
We will enumerate some of the
advantages that Orangeburg enjoys,
ix Protestant denominations are rep
resented here with congregations, so
are the Catholics and Hebrews among
white people, and three Protestant
denominations are represented
mong the colored people. Two fine
large brick school houses are pro
vided for the white children, with a
corps of nearly twenty teachers, and
good frame building for colored
children, with six teachers. Orange
burg is well provided with schools
Superstition and distrust, with
which secret orders were once re
garded by a large number of people,
as, happily, long ago dispelled, and
today the lodge sands as one of the
champions of the home and family.
Wherever society has reached a
high state of development, secret and
fraternal orders have their greatest
stronghold. Orangeburg has the Ma
sons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pyth
ias, The Elks, Knights of Honor,
Woodmen of the World and several
smaller social clubs among the se
cret or fraternal orders.
During the last quarter of a cen
tury a movement among women, re
markable for its scope and intent,
has spread from one end of the coun
try to the other. It is known as the
women's movement, and is recogniz
ed among people who give thought
to the sociological progress of the
race, as the most noticeable step for
vard recorded in the evolution of
womanhood. In this 'broad move
ment Orangeburg has her full share,
and its widening influence permeates
all grades of society.
The name of our town stands for
a picture in the minds of all who
have lingered even for a few fleet
ing days within the charm of its woo
ing beauty. It stands not alone as
a present picture, but as the future
ideal of its own loyal citizens. It is
unique among other towns of the
:3tate, as an ideal little city of
homes, even as the whole county Is
uinque for its wealth, fertility and
manifold attractions. Orangeburg is
noted for its handsome 'business
house and beautiful homes.
There is not a better or cleverer
lot of people on the planet than those
who make up the citizenship of Or
angeburg. Her professional and bus
iness men will compare favorably
with those of any community any
where. Her citizens and mechanics
and her young men, are all patriotic
and loyal. Our girls are the pretti
est and sweetest in the world, but
this could not be otherwise, when
the charm and beauty of their moth
ers are noted. Orangeburg Is a city
of beautiful worsen and manly men

Good Advice to Young Men Seeking
A Place to Locate In.
It has been many years since Hor
ace Greeley made famous the phrase
"Go West, young man." During
that time the South has made tre
mendous changes. Since Sherman
marched through leaving ashes an
ruined homed in the nlacc^r of beau
the brink of the most prosperous
tations, the people of the South have
risen far trom where he left it.
Her recovery has been complete
And now, today, we are standing on

Politically, she is again sweeping in
to power as she was in the days be
fore the war. The recent doings of
Congress are coupled with the namea
of Clark, of Missouri, Underwood, of
Alabama, Martin of Virginia, Wil
Hams, of Mississippi, and other men
of the South.
The South'.s part in the govern
meat before the war, was one of con
tinual g'ory. From the end of the
Revolutionary war up to 1861, It was
Southern spirit that ruled in Wash
ington. The War of 1812, and the
War with Mexico were distinctly
Southern affairs. And in connec
tion with these wars South Carolina
played a most important part. When
the War of 1812 was being discussed
Calhoun was the able defender of
the government's course. Later as
secretary of War, he practically en
gineered the annexation of Texas.

alone brings the .balance of money in
this country. The prospect is
brighter than ever before.
And so young man, if you are

There is a better opening now than
there ever has been. A new era is be

FOR EVERYTHING IN FURNITURE
Courteous and Efficient.
One thing about the merchants of
Orangeburg that has contributed
largely to the success of their indi
vidual businesses and the prosperity
of Orangebui^ j?nerally is the uni
form courtesy that is extended to
every customer. When he comes to
invest 5 cents of $50 he is always
sure to receive polite attention due
him as a man and a customer. And
the clerks know their business?
don't you forget it. That is always
one-half of selling goods. A. man can
have the very best goods and talk
gruff and go tto the wall; while an
other man with medium goods and
pleasing manner will ride in auto
