DEATH OF JOHN F. MCLAURIN.
JOHN V. MCLAURIN was thc son o?
Ivmtchliu Mclaurin, ?md was born in
Marlboro county on the 17th day of Oct
ober, 1841 ?mi die<l at McColl, on tlie
2oUi any ot November, 1906. He did
?ot have the advantages iii a collegiate
education, but upon the foundation laid
in tlie 8cltools of the county he-built se
curely and steadily in after life, and nc_
quired an education auch as fitted imn
for any stationl in life.
At an early age he volunteered in the
Confederate service, in Co. "K," 8th S.
C. Regiment, one among tlie first organ
ized in tlie State, and remained in this
Regiment until after tlie battle of Frede
ricksburg, when lie waa transferred to
tlie cavalry company of Capt. Peterkin,
and then to the "Hampton Legion." in
which lie served until tlie close of tlie
war. His experience in tlie army was
valuable to him, like it was to many
others, in developing his naturally strong
mind, and teaching him self-reliance, the
necessity of individual judgment and of
practical common sense in the affairs of
Like all the other young men who ser
ved the Southern Confederacy so patriot
ically, lie started life after the close of
the war with the gloomiest prospects of
success. But notwithstanding Iiis adverse
environments, he, with the hopefulness
and invincible determination horn of His
Scotch ancestry, was not appalled by the
situation, but went to work with energy
and resolution to secure success from thc
Untoward circumstances in which he was
placed and tlie want of opportunities. Sy
dint of unflagging energy, and unwaver
ing self-reliance, and by thc exercise of
n strong individual judgment and a fixed
determination to overcome all obstacles,
he did succeed. He was emphatically
thc architect of his own fortune. It was
his own unaided efforts, coupled with his
indomitable will power and energy, that
made him the man he was. Most of the
great and successful of our country have
been such self-made men. They have
acquired fame and fortune not hy colle
giate educations, onccstrol advantages or
the influence of the great, hut by these
native qualtities heroism and what thc
world calls genius, which impelled them
to rely upon themselves and their own
efforts to attain success.
John F. Mclaurin was not only a self
made man, but impressed himself upon
and was appreciated by the generation in
which he lived. Recognizing his mental
and moral qualities he was made a leader
in his community, in his church and in
Iiis county. He was elected hy his fel
low citizens several times to the General
Assembly, and during thc last slimmer,
at the solicitation of his many friends,
was a candidate for the State Senate.
Ile was always ready to serve the peo
ple in any office or capacity in which he
was wanted, and thus exhibted his pub
lic spirit, his patriotism and desire to do
all he could for the good of his State and
country. It is needless to say how faith
fully he discharged the duties of legisla
tor, for all in the county know his record,
ami attested to him while living that he
was a faithful public servant. He was
no time serving politician. Tie did not
seek office simply for personal prefer
ment and advantage, but because he be
lieved he could serve his people and ben
efit them. His patriotism was broad,
unselfish, untainted by love for Office andi
such as made him ready for any sacrifices
necessary for his state and country. Thc
writer served with him one term in the
General Assembly and con truthfully say
that he was one of the most conscientious
untiring, punctual and useful members,'
in the body. His unflinching adherence
to what he believed was right, Iiis strong
common sense, his good judgment and
his earnest desire to do what was right
irrespective of personal considerations,
were his prominent qualities as a public
As a man, John F. Mclaurin stood
ed to be to all is what he really was. He
disdained to do a mean act for his own
advantage. He was conscientious almost
to a fault. No man can say that he was
ever deceived, injured or oppressed by
John F. Mclaurin. His benevolence and
charity embraced the whole brotherhood
of man. His striking characteristics as
a man were his strong common sense, Iiis
good practical judgment, his conscien
tiousness, and his unwavering desire to
As a citizen he was always ready to do
his full duty. No sacrifices were too great
for him to make in response to his patri
otism. In conventions, public assemblies
and in elections, he was always present,
i conferring with his fellow citizens as to
the public weal. He always sought duty
rather than shirked it, not for the pur
pose of benefitting himself but for the
good of his country. As a soldier he was
gallant and faithful to duty, as all his
comrades in arms can attest.
As father, husband and brother he was
loving and faithful, and discharged the
obligations growing out of these delicate
relations with the same fidelity and con
scientiousness which characterized him
in the other relations of life. The loss
of this model husband and father to thc
family is irreparable. To the writer it is
a sad bereavement, for he was his true
Tenderly and lovingly his remains were
laid to rest in the cemetery at McColl, on
Thanksgiving Day, in the presence of a
large number of his friends and neigh
bors. The minister in preaching his fu
neral selected the text, "A good name is
better than precious ointment," and it
was very appropriate, for John P. Mc
laurin throughout life sought to do right
and have a good name. T.

What Can The Mattor Bo?
Mr. Editor-What has becomo of
tho much boasted Ontton Association
and tho Cotton Warehouse started by
tho samo, Tho farmers started oui
for once like they mount to do some
thing, but after a little self.glorifica
lion ihoy seem to have collapsed alto
gether. They romiod nie of ao old
hou that laid a big egg, and died in
But, seriously, so much good results
to us, them, and every class of citizens
from their organization, and agitation
of tho questions and measures ot relief
to tho wholo country, by high prices
for cotton, that they can onforce, if
they would, that we had hoped they
meant what they said, and would not
give up so soon, but would go on and
perfect their organization, and bring
that tremendous prosperity to all the
country, thal thoy can if they would.
Thoy must lead in all these great move
ments on account of their being pro
ducors, and their uumbors give them
power, and we of other classes will
follow and help them as we cnn, but
we look for them to .'take tho lead "
They never will have such an oppor
tuuity of aid from us, the baukersnnd
all other professions, and they had
better not lose this opportunity to help
themselves, while wo arc willing to
assist them, and at same time bouefit
There is too much selfishness among
thom. We have contributed to their
fund lo aid in tho grand movement
much moro liberally thnu they as a
class have themselves dono. Wo are
willing to continue, but before they
como around aud asking us again lot
them show a disposition to help them
selves It has boen told us many ol
the farmers, and largo well to do ones
too, not only have not joined tho or
ganization, but refuse to contribute to
a fund to better their own condition.
Shame on such farmers who are will?
! ing to bo carried by their neighbors
and other classes
Wo merchants have our organiza
tions, so do tho doctors, lawyess, and
all othor professions, and evon the
j preachers seo tho benefit of some or
ganization, and will tho farmer nover
learn that his powor, is only in acorn
pact organization, with that ho can do
almost everything. It makes us sick
lo hoar some of thom talking in our
hearing, "That they have found out
that every man eau manngo his own
business best without dictation from
anybody olso or any organization "
Don't thoy know, nor can thoy never
learn that almost all largo fortunes
aro made by wiso mon pooling their
interests, and submitting to just such
dictation as they call it. But these
Solomons can't bo taught any lesson,
[ suppose. I would urge tho brainy
mon of tho Marlboro Cotton Associa
tion to pick thoir flints and try again,
don't be discouraged ; you havo done
too much good to the general country
to give up tho fight; but say with old
Paul Jones when demanded to sur
render his ship, "Why I havo just
begun to fight." Too much is at issue
to give up tho fight now, let us all
enlist for tho war.

ership, don't sacrifice our intorcst oud

We have disliked to say some things
we have said here, but think tho time
and circumstances demand it.
Tho farmers have said much in the
past about merchants antagonizing
them, and now when we have shown
substantially that wo will assist them,
and they are road y to back down, we
hopo nover to hoar anything more
from them about merchants not sus
taining their movements Lot mc say
in closing,we are readv to assist again
in means nod person, and think wc
can speak for the bankers, lawyers,
doctors and in fact all our profession
al classes, but we want to eec tho far
mers first help themselves, especially
those well able m es who have never
yet put their shoulder to tho wheel.
