AN INTERESTING PICTURE,
Laurens, riv?' Years Hence.
LIFF. IN THE OLD LAUD YET AND
Bright IIopcB for the Future.
An A nv KUTI s KU Reporter, called on
a gentleman who was stopping for a few
days at ibis plaee, and who had taken
great Interest in tho affairs of Laurons
and studied lbein, from a business point
"Ti ll us" said tho reporter, something
of the business outlook of Laurens?"
"Well" ho replied, "I havo visited
many towns in Carolina and other
Southern States, recently, but nowhero
havo I seen a more? Industrious, thrifty
and intelligent community. Your town
is well bleated, surrounded by exeellent
tarni lauds; the elitnato ls unsurpassed
and on account of your geographical po
sition, yours is destined to be one of the
grand railroad centres of this seetion.
All that you need is a little moro vim
and a little moro money. The money in
time will como and If you can por su ado
your readers that I am not a veritable
Wiguins, I 'will .'enture to picture the
Laurens ol' ll vc years hence."
A carriage hoing ready, your reporter
requested the gentleman to take a short
drivo over'tho town with him, dio ing
Which he further remarked, on nearing
the C. L. A'S. D.-p.it:
"In the picture before me (Laurens
five years henee) I soe magnificent
brick building son both sides of this
street. These buildings aro not "shops"
hut tho stored of m on! who bought proper
ty in this town before the extension of the
Itoanoko and Southern Railroad to this
point, and tho completion of tho Q, N.
A- L.J which now (1801) connects this soc
lion with Ton no?? seo. They bought
property and it has made their money.
Those are wholesale houses exclusively.
I soo at tho top of this hill a magi ficen t
hoted, which is indeed a formidable rival
to your famous "Mendella." All trains
on tho O.'L. ?t S., C. A O., t.oanoko and

of factories, but to oap tho climax Is
that which towers high aboyo the re.ol
That smoke e..mes from H cotton factory
and,the ..no on the opposite side is a cot
ton seed oil mill, Now I will toll Voil
how these factories are built. Your
men wore not aldo to build thom and
Northern Capitalist were unwilling to
invest in them unless they could got co
operation. .\t first your citizens refused
to risk anything, hut Anally they real
ized the necessity for Investing all sur
plus earnings in KUCh ontorprlsos, and
you s? o the result. hey have no strik
es, no overproduction, but nil are
moving On full timo and have already
doelnrod R handsome dividend That
fondly will bc able to do :dl the work
for upper Carolina, it is to-day one ol'
the grandest ontorprlsos in your town.
Well, I must now bo off, but I will re

publisned in your issue of Sept.

ding that for tho University, the
Citadel) and the Common Schools,
$1.06 per hoad, our tax levied in
support of tito United States
through Impost duties (or Tuxes)
could not be less than $7 (tn per
load, while the Committee of
Ways and Menus of the United
States Congress was authority for
saying that tho average United

more-that ninny articles were
