Death of a Prominent Citizen.
Dr. John A. Westmoreland, a promi

north east portion of this county on the
morning of the 31th ult. He was born in
Spartanburg county, as a boy served
gallantly in the war, and when all was
lost, save honor to tho South, manfully
he entered the struggle to build up
his ruined peoplo. In 1870 in full man
hood no man more patriotically con
tributed to the great struggle to re
deem his prostrate State. Laurens has
lost one of her best citizens and the
State a devoted intelligent patriot.?
Ho leaves a widow and children who in
their loss will have the sympathy of a

Dear Sirs:?The Aemo ijight
Roadster came to hand O. K. on
tho 10th inst., and I must frankly
say it meets my fullest expecta
tions, and I am very much pleased
with it. I consider it a strictly
high grade up to dato wheel In
every detail of design, material,
construction and finish and is fully
equal, if not superior to many of
the f100.00 whellssold on the mar
ket here. I bolievo tho Acme frame
is tho strongest and most rigid and
the most graceful and lightest
frame built. It is a beauty among
beauties, and cannot fall to satisfy.

All you have to do is to get casli subscribers to The Advertiser.
Any boy 01 girl can get subscribers. Any person young or old can get
this fine bicycle by making a little effort. A list of live subscribers may
win it. If a lady wins the bicycle she may get a ladies' wheel. Or she
may get a gentleman's wheel and sell it if she prefers.
It is a good plan to begin work at once.
As soon as you get a subscriber send in his name and the monc) so
that the paper may be promptly sent to him. State that you are a con
testant for the bicycle and an accurate list will be kept of all the names
you send. Two half year or four three months subscribers will be
counted in the contest as one.
No Loss Possible.
Not Even of Time. "If I don't get the largest list I shall have had
my trouble for nothing" you say. No you won't cither. The ADVER
TISER will give at the end of the contest, except to the winner of the
bicycle, twenty-five cents for each subscriber sent in by a contestant.
So if you get forty subscribers you may win the bicycle. If you don't
you get ten dollars anyhow.
