TUE RECORD OF LAUBENS UP TO
DATE. MAT 19.
Too annual meeting of the Stockhol
ders of The Laurens Cotton Mills holden
on Saturday last, developed the most
hopeful future for this great enterprise.
Presldont Lucas submitted his report
which was perfectly satisfactory. The
old Board of Directors was re-eleoted:
W. E. Lucas, V. N. Montgomery, D.
W. Alderman, Wm. M. Bird, H. 8.
Chadwick, Albett Dial, J. O. C. Flem
ing, J. W. Ferguson, J. P. Simpson, J.
w. Todd. Mr. Lucas was made Presi
dent and Treasurer.
About fifteen young ladies of the
city began the study of Shakespeare a
few months hack under the guidance
and direction of Mrs. S. D. Garlington
to whom they appealed for aid. One
of the most delightful features of the
course was a Shakespeare tea given
the class by Mrs. Garlington on last
Thursday afternoon. Mrs. G. F.
Young and Miss Lyl Harris, a member
of the club, assisted Mrs. Garlington
in receiving. After the serving of
dainty refreshments the girls drew for
cards prettily decorated in heliotrope
upon which were inscribed quotations
from the various plays studied during
tho winter. These led to still more of
tho "glbblo gabble" for which after
noon teas are famous in tho midst of
which rapidly approaching darkness
came as an unwelcome intruder and
disturber of a pleasaut occasion.
Mr. Fi. R. Winn will serve an ele
gant old fashioned barbecuo at the
Harris Lithia Springs on the 25th of
June. Besides a delightful dinner, the
candidates will be there to speak, there
will bo a dance at the hotel for the
young, a first-class band of music and
attractions for all. Tlllman and Irby
will be among the invited speakers.

Saturday was a day to be remembered
oy the lads and losses 01 the county.
School Commissioner Madden had ar
ranged that the teachers and schools
of the county wo'^M have a picnic on
the grounds of U Graded School of
the city and at an early hour of the
dayi gayly decked wagons, carriages
and conveyances packed with the boys
and girls and tots, began to make the
public square of the olty a scene of
animation and innocent gayety. At
11 A. M. the city band sent forth
lively airs from the porticoes of the
C. H. and the auditorium of that
building was soon packed with the
school girls, boys and their teachers
from all around Laurons. The day's
programme was opened with an appro
priate prayer by the Rev. Robert
Adams, of the Presbyterian ohurch;
Mayor Dial welcomed the guests and
turned them over the keys of the city.
First, however, Professor J. M. Bry
son introduced Hon. W. D. Mayfleld,
State SuperIntendant of Edueatlon,
who delivered a short but very In
structive address upon the educational
conditions of the State and the audi
ence was delivered over to the picnlo
grounds, where they proceded to enjoy
the day. The parents of the children
brought great baskets of all tho good
things the splendid mothorB of our
county know now to provido and thoy
were delightfully spread, served and
enjoyed. Tho merchants of tho city
furnished the lemons, i lemonades
and the IceB and the city hand dis
coursed pleasant and patriotic airs
and there was nothing but fun, frolic
and tho riot of youth to mark the pro
gress of tho fast going hours. Our citi

You had a precious gem,
Too valuable for this earth,

So he could get its worth.
You had a beautiful star.
That made your path so bright,

You had a girl that you loved,

But now sho is tronoand left you,
Gone to always stay.
But soon you will see hor again.
When you are called on high,
Yes, you will meet hor, "faco to faco"
Up there, "In tho sweot by and by."
No doubt it was hard to give her up,
So hard to say "good bye,"
But sho has gono to realms of bliss

You have a mission on this earth,

used tobacco in all its forms. For twenty
five years of that time I was a great suf
ferer from general debility and heart
disease. For fifteen years I tried to quit,
but couldn't. I took various remidies,
among others "No-To-Bac," "The Indian
Tobacco Antidoto." "Double Chloride of
Gold," etc., etc.. but none of them did
me the least bit of good. Finally, how
ever, I purchased a box of your "Baco

the habit in all its forms, and I have in
creased thirty pounds in weight and am
relieved from all the numerous aches

left it. After tho lapse of some
