Th s Best of All Economy is the
Economy of Securing the Best.
It: is not economy to take your child to a cheap and
ineffi :ient teacher when an experienced and well trained
one i iay be secured for a slightly greater fee. If you must
have a cheap teacher, it would be better to reserve the cheap
teach ;r for some later period, as the most important period
of a 1 is when your child is commencing the study of
Musi:. A poor teacher has wrecked many a promising
career. The best of all economy is the economy of securing
the liest. If you put up with cheap things at the start,
you will find that you will go through all your musical
life, seeking for bargains,?bargains that are far more
expe isive than you have any means of determining. Music
tuiti( n in the North and West is far in excess of that in
the .South. In the South, it runs from six to ten dollars
per month for first class instruction.

THE HEALTH OF THE
--CITY OF ORANGEBURG
The health of a community Is its
most valuable asset. This facts be
comes better recognized, and is
more regarded as the world igrows
in civilization. Prehistoric man
roamed the world, thinking that all
sickness waa caused by some unfor
tunate anger of the gods, and
sought to appease the gods In~the
hopes that the bodily disease with
which he suffered would be cured?
not knowing that disease was caused
by himself in his ignorance. Even
our own forefathers never knew that
there was such things as germs, in
habiting the human body by the mil
lions . If you had told one of them
that there were a million igerms in a
single drop of water, he would have
called you a fool.
But with the increase of know
ledge the health of a community has
been regarded with greater care, and
now the process is going on by which
n.ethods of cure will be cast aside
ror methods of prevention. Our fore
lathers believed in bleeding a pa
tient, and many times took away the
very strength which the sufferer
needed to go through his sickness.
Now in the modern scientific treat
ment of disease they do not bleed a
patient, but In many instances, infuse
more blood into him. The discovery
that typhoid fever was carried by a
mosquito, that flies were the car
riers of much sickness, and that small
pox could be prevented by vaccina
tion are all forerunners of anEra
Our country, as a nation, is behind
none in the progress of medical skill.
Ihe splendid example set the world
by our physicians at Cuba and Pana
ma, have shown that these tropical
countries can be freed from typhoid,
malaria, and other tropical diseases
when the proper care is taken. The
wonderful sanitary results at Pana
ma has made the canal a possibility.
At each station whare travellers from
foreign countries seek to enter our
country there is a United States quar
antine station, where the entire ship
ia inspected and all persons suspect
ed of disease debarred entrance
When we consider the question lo
cally we find that Orangeburg has
been for the longest, entirely free
from all epidemics. Charleston has
had her yellow fever, Spartanburg
her small-pox, but Orangeburg has
had her peace and health. The meth
ods of prevention have had a lot to
do inthis. For instance when the
tramp last winter was about to pass
through our town, he was met by of
ficers who haltqd him, erected a
tent, put guards over him to see that
no one ^iproached him and that he
was kept in quarantine. As a re
sult our city was probably saved
from a small-pox epidemic. Mr.
Merchant, consider how much trade
you would have lost had it become
generally known that small pox WttS
raging in Orangeburg.
From viewing the question Ir. the
respect of communities, we come to
that of private individuals. When
you begin looking for a home for
yourself and family, you want a
healthy place; where the little chil
dren can run and jump and play
with red blood in their veins and
plenty of fresh air and sunshine. You
want a place where you can work
without being harassed by the con
stant phantom of death, and the
presence of the trained nurse in your
home. So, we say, if you are look
ing for that sort of a place, come to
Orangeburg is not a health resort.
It Is not put down in books as in that
class. It makes no claim for its
medicinal waters on the one hand,
nor does it look disdainfully from a
lofty perch to the sea. We are
plain Orangeburg, S C, but we are
healthy just the same.
Fortunately Orangeburg was built
healthy in the beginning It is about
a mile from thi? banks of the Edisto
and has a splendid natural drainage
ditch on the North and South sides
of the city emptying into the river
on the West. It is situated on a
high point, it Is always dry, with a
top soil of sand.
The water used in the greater
part of the city is furnished by the
city from deep wells and the law re
quiring that an analysis be made ev
ery sixty days is strictly complied
with. The city has a sewerage sys
tem covering the business portion
and leading residential section, the
outlet being the swift flowing Edis
to, one mile away. The box system
in used in closets and removed by
the city and disposed of outside the
Orangeburg dwellings are not
congested. We keep room for fresh
air, sunshine, green trees and a
green lawn in front for the health V>f
the young generation. We do not sac
rifice health necessities for dollars.
We build our houses with a drive
way on the side, a garden in the rear
and away from the dust in front.
Another thing: Orangeburg prac
tices preventive medicine. An active
board of health and health officers,
with a sympathetic city council, give
to the people free and unlimited use
of disinfectants in the Spring and
summer months, using perhaps more
than any other city of like size in the
Slate. Intelligent people use it glad
ly and freely around stables and clos
ets, and the ignorant and careless
are forced to use it by the health of
cer, who has police power, ofr the
health of the community.
There is a health map of the city
of Orangeburg. Every house where
there is an infectious disease is
marked and kept under supervision
and made to follow the requirements
of the health laws \r some negro
houses where patient has died from
consumption the owner at the re
quest of the board of health, has
had the house thoroughly white
washed and scoured. The health of
ficer makes it his special duty to lo
calize any point of infection and pre
vent Ms spread by all approved meth
ods of disinfection and Isolation.
.These are some of the things that
A COUNTY FAIR
Not since the days long gone by
has Orangeburg had a regular Coun
ty Fair. Where people can look at
good stock, meet their friends from
all over the country, and at the same
time break the monotony of daily
toil. But beginning with Nov. 14
the Orangeburg County Fair Associa
tion will begin to hold its annual
fair, which will last four days?14
to 17 inclusive.
The fair this Nevcmber will be the
first one, and every effort will be
made to make it a huge success. The
capital stock for this fair has already
been taken, amounting to $20,000
by farmers and merchants all over
Orangeburg county. Grounds have
been purchased and the necessary
buildings will be erected by Novem
A premium list of 1,000 premiums
has been aranged and in a short time
will be distributed. These premiums
will cover everything of interest to
both men and women. Secure one of
these lists and enter for the prem
iums. The lists are open to anybody
that cares to enter and the more the
The county fair will be worth the
time It takes for any farmer to at
tend. The various instruments he
will see demonstrated, the many in
teresting points about the farm he
will be able to pick up from seeing
the other exhibits, and congenial mix
ture of friends all go to make the
fair a very enjoyable occasion.
A corn show will be held in con
nection with the fair, and this fea
ture will be in the hands of experts.
The Girls' Tomato Club will also be
given a conspicuous place in the gen
eral arrangements, and so on. It
is too early yet to make any definite
announcements, but watch the pap
ers for news about the Orangeburg
County Fair, Nevember 14 to 17, and
don't fail to be there.
At. the first meting of the direc
tors the Fair was placed in the care
of the following gentlemen as offi
cers: Capt. J. H. Claffy, president;
T. R. McCants, first vice president;
J. W. Smoak, second vice-president
and A. H. Marchant, secretary and
treasurer Under the efficient man
agement of these men the Fair lo
certainly bound to be a success
WHO PAYS THE BILLS?
Good Advertising Should Sustain It
self by New Business.
When you advertise in the local
paper, what's your theory of pay
ment? Do you figure that you will
pay for the ad out of the profits of
the business it brings in, or out of
your normal, veery day cash receipts?
It's a poor advertisement that can
not pull its own weight in the boat.
The biggest advertisers in the coun
try aim to make their advertising
sustain itself. They pay for it out of
increased business. A manufacturer
or popular candies says: "Neither the
dealers nor his customers pay for
our advertising. It is paid by the
growth of our business through ad
vertising which enables U3 to save
enough In cost of salesmen, superin
tendence, rents, Interest and use of
the plant to cover most, if not all of
our adevertising bills."
In other words advertising makes
it possible to get the mots out of
your investment. It makes your
store and your fixed charges bring
in the biggesL posible results to the
square inch. The bigger your vol
ume of advertising grows the bigger
should be your business, and the
more efficient work you should be
able to get out of every dollar you
Advertising should not merely
make enough to pay for itself out
of the profits, but it should increase
the "square inch" earning capacity
of your clerks and your store front,
and your delivery wagons and your
nice and expensive fixtures, so that
the profits on the goods sold would
be all profit, and the economies in
management and efficiency would pay
for the advertising,
i It takes good advertising to figure
I out that way, but if you are keen to
' take advantage of the help being
I offered you from various sources,
you can get out the right kind of ad
