TO WHITE UP LAURENS.
An Accomplished Correspondent of The
News und Courier to Write
Mr. J. E. Norment will be in Lau
rens in a few days to write up the' city
for the News and Courier.
Mr. Norment is one of the most ac
complished correspondents In the
South and his articlos about various
?.owns in South Carolina have been
very valuable to thorn*.
Tho Laurens artlole will be illus
trated handsomely and fully.
At this juncture when Laurens is
undergoing a great business revival
her people should take advantage of
this opportunity and advertisers ought
to doal liberally with Mr. Norment
and the News and Courier.
Ten thousand copies at the least of
the Issue containing the article should
be subscribed for in Lauren6.
Tho editor of this paper had the for
tune to pass through fifteen miles of
Laurens territory in a private convey
ance during last week. The route lay
along the old Greenville road to Capt.
Shells and thence up tho Ralbon, and
over the hills as far as Dials church.?
The crops on tho entire way are fair to
good oxcept on sandy rldgo lands
where they are light. The corn is un
iformly good aud the land groaning
with peas ripo for tho sickle. The pea
crop is a wonder. The fields are snowy
with cotton, and the far mors say thoy
can't stop to tri He with peas and nine
cents cotton hanging from tho bolls?
Wo observed particularly the crops of
Mr. James Bolt, Hugh Wallace, Glenn
Fuller, Capt. John Switzer, David Har
ris, Piorce Hellams, Taylor Campbell,
John Heliums, .Esq., and many oth
ers. It was tho 10th of October, but
tho orchard of Mr. James Bolt, with a
half dozen trees loaded with beauti
ful peaches, and tho eloquence of our
road companions, L. G. B & W. H. B.
was too much for our integrity and a
syndicate was formed to raid the pro
serves; but fortuately the hospitable
proprietor was at home, and with bin
assistance we returned with overflow
ing baskots. We found many of these
industrious whole soulded farmers look
ing after their sorghum and every man
with his hand to the plow. They are
a happy, independent, intelligent,
thriving people. Wo were about to for
get to mention that the twenty acre
cotton Hold of Hugh Wallace on the
road side Is tho talk and admiration of
all beholders. Tho more we see of our
people at their own hospitable homes

THE SOUTHERN CO.'S EXPOSITION
Atlanta, ua,, Sept. 20.
Editor Manufacturers Record:
Tho Southern Railway has erect
ed, doubtless, -the most classical
building on the exposition grounds.
It is a most beautiful and symmet
rical production throughout, and In
its pure white daintiness resembles
a gem of most brilliant appearance
and chaste design. Its gilded dome
is surmounted by a heroic si/.o fe
male figure representing modern
Its Interior contains a bureau of
information under the auspices of
the passenger department, and a
similiar bureau under the auspices
of tho land and immigration de
partment, and also contains an ex
hibit of rare and costly selection of
tho finest gems of tho South.
The building is set forth ns an
example of tho best production of
the architect, Mr. Bradford L.
Gilbert, and it was constructed un
der tho supervision of tho man
agement of the Southern Railway
Even more than the Pennsyl
vania Rail toad was to the Centen
nial Exposition at Philadelphia,
and the Illinois Central Rail road
was to the World's Fair, the South
ern Railway is to the Cotton Slates
and International Exposition at
Atlanta. This great system reaches
Atlanta from all four points of the
compass, stretching ' o%t its im
mense arms to the Potomac at
Washington, ami the Ohio River
gateways at. Cincinnati, Louisville,
St. liouis, Memphis, Vicksburg and
New Orleans, and reaching down
into the interior of Florida and
penetrating in a network the en
tire Southern States, it brings di
rectly into tho gates of Atlanta
trade and travel from all quarters
of the globe.
The Southern Railway being the
only line of transportation enter
ing tho exposition grounds, it has
undertaken to proudly assert its re
cognition of this great responsibil
ty, and lias provided the most am
ple and accommodating terminal
facilities, both at Lloyd Street Sta
tion , adjoining the Markharn
House, and Immediately opposite
the Union Depot in t Ii im city, and
also at the grounds of the exposi
The Southern Railway has ar
ranged a system ol quick train ser
vice between the eity and the
grounds such as the South has
never witnessed. These trains are
arranged so as to be run within
three minutes of-eaeh other, and
afford a total carrying capacity of
20,000 an hour in each direction, or
a total movement in one hour of
10,000 people should necessities re
Vice President Baldwin has im
bued his entire staff of .subordinates
with a spirit of energy and enter
prise in this undertaking that is
bound to make it the most success
ful of tho kind ever known.
The passenger department of
tho Southern Railway has issued
extensive and beautiful advertis
ing matter of original and effective
sort, and has participated very
largely in the effort so successfully
resulting In arranging tho lowest
rates upon the most liberal basis
for the Atlanta Exposition ever af
forded any Exposition of this kind
in tho world.
The frieght department has lent
similiar aid and enterprise in pro
viding for tho movement of
tho exhibits, and indeed the
watchword throughout tho entire
Southern Railway system seems to
be "Tho Atlanta Exposition must
be an ovorwhlltning success."
The transportation department of
the southern Railway is doubtless
as well officered as any railway in
I he United States. Most ample and
extensive train service has been
arranged by the transportation de
partment to bring everybody from
everywhere to Atlanta on this
great occasion. I. W. AvERY.
