upon the dissolution of the New- j

that while it regrets that such a step
was necessary it does not look upon it
as a calamity, saying that it thinks
tk* idea that the commercial organization
is necessary to the growth of a
town is a mistake* one. "To lay too

joot a fact They may help but they
do not create business and are in no
sense necessary. Some towns have
been very prosperous without chambers
of commerce and some are now?
and we do not hesitate to class New-1
berry among them. Anderson is aoth-,

organization now. Where is there a |

We are somewhat surprised at these
views of our contemporary. While it
may possibly be right in its statement
that towns can prosper without chambers
of commerce, we insist that the
degree of prosperity can hardly be as
??ieat as if such organizations existed
i -Take Greenville for instance. This
city has for the past four or five years
been enjoying an unprecedented
growth. \Tew enterprises have gone up
on e^ery hand and many more are in
prospect. We promise to lead the State
in growth. It is possible, indeed high- j
ly probable, that the city would have !
grown if we had had no chamber of!
commerce, but the growth would not !
have been near so marked. We have
two niew million dollar cotton mills
that we would most probably not have
had if it had not been for the chamber
of commerce or board of trade. We
have secured dozens of other industries,
some great, some small, directly
through the organization. While we
may naturally have grown some, had
we not had a commercial organization,

The Observer points to Anderson.)
and Newberry as towns that have prospered
-vithout commercial organizations.
We are unfamiliar with conditions
in Newberry but we have not

Now as to Anderson. While we do
not wish to cast aspersions upon that
city or any of its people, some of!
wbom are as fine folks as can be found [
in the world, it must be admitted that
that town has not advanced in the
past few years as it should have or
could have had the proper efforts
been made. We are inclined to think
that the Anderson folks will admit
this themselves. There seems to have
been totally lacking in that town the
eniTit r>f r>ft-nnpratifm which is SO neC
essary to the growth of a city. Such a
spirit can best be engendered by an
' organization such ass a chamber of |

miserable depots in the State. It is a

of much money to the business men.
A real live chamber of commerce
coyld have remedied these matters.
While on their face they do not appear
to be so important they really are if
one gets down to the facts. There are
dozing of other more important things
than this that a live chamber of commerce
could have acted upon.

this was secured by the Anderson
chamber of commerce before that organization
went out of existence.
The Anderson papers, we see, realize
the necessity of their city having
a chamber if it is to keep pace with the
progress of the other towns of the
State and are continually calling upon
the business men of the town to get
together and form one. They are frequently
pointing out the work that is
being done by the Greenville chamber
of commerce in an effort to arouse
Tie Observer says:
"The best thing a town can have
is a competent and progressive city
council, with the prevalence of law
anc order and decency; good schools
and good churches; honest and patriotic
citizens; enterprising business
men, every man attending to his own i
business strictly and at the same time j
contributing whatever he can to the
common good. Little as one may think
of it, the best town is where each
man pushes his own business as hard
as he can and does not knock his
neighbor's and this f-eature no commercial
body can give or take away."
Thi6 is well and sood. But such a j
town mar exist forever this day and j
time without any perceptible gtowth.
We ar? a little afraid that Brother
Wallace of the Observer is content to
see a town merely hold its own, not
rxtri-nir for the erowth that some cities
?- ? c*
are making. If he isn't he ought to
mcrve to Greenville and see what our
chamber of commerce i? doing.

Sleeplessness is cauged by many
things. The brain centers and nerves,
through trouble, exertion or excitement,
refuse to decrease their activity,
and con'sciousness is retained
through the night hours.
In the first place, the use of stimulants
in the nightime should be<
abandoned by those who are inclined j
to be sleepless: Many hours of nerv-1

Just before retiring, a gentle,:
soothing massage sometimes produces !1
wonderful results. Massag-es at the j
back of the neck by placing the finger
at the base of the skull and
pressing lightly, moving them around

shoulders should be rubbed with olive i
oil; a sleepy feeling results from the j
motion and the oil is practicularly
calming to the nerves of the skin.
A slow rotary motion of the head
is another excellent way to produce
drowsiness. Stand straight and swing
the head in a circle slowly; half close
the eyes." You will feel a half lazy,
dreaming sensation which will soothe
the mind and pave the way for sleep.
Warm milk is -especially good. A
glass of this just before retiring is a
reliable and efficacious dose. Do not
have the milk too hot and be sure tojB
sip it slowly, for indestion will result
if it is gulped down.
If you find that sleeplessness is recurring
night after night, do not hesitate
to consult a doctor. Never let
this trouble grow in force until insomania
results, for that sometimes
proves difficult to cure. Above all,
