over tho county. There was some lit
tle sparring, but pleasantly, over the
question of voting upon former fac

voice of tho orowd seemed to be
against it?for harmony and unity and
ignoring past, doad and useless issues.

During hie visit in the city last week,
President Craighead, of Olemaon Col
logo brought to the attention of the
newspaper Editors the fact that Con
fress makes an appropriation for
'armors Institutes in the different
Congressional Districts. He states
that if the farmers of the county de
sire an Institute held in the county
during this month or September he Is
ready to hold one at tho suggestion of
tho farmers. He will be present him
self, with the Agricultural Chemist,
and Veterinarian of the College and
lectures on matters connected with the
soils, stock, etc., will bo delivered. The
Institute may be held for one or two
days. It cannot but be interesting and
improving. We suggest that the
oflicors of the County Alliance and sub
Alliances meet in the court house in
this city on Monday the 24th Instant
to discuss tho subject and make ar
rangement to extend an invitation to
President Craighead. Also, that
farmers, generally are invited to meet
here with the Alliance officers. We
feel assured that the citizens of the
town will extend every hospitality to
those attending tho Institute.

FINE PLACE FOR BOY BABIES.
But Laurens is great. One man
in that hospitable county has seven
sons, and the eldest is only nine
years?no twins, no triplets. When
your writer thinks of this grand
and glorious result he is led to con
clude that marriage Is not a fail
ure. Surely that man's "pride of
ancestry" must he swallowed up in
his "hope of posterity." How is
that for high, Chips?
And another progressive gentle
man of that land of fertility has
three sons who were born during
the stormy period of the late upris
ing and whose Christian names are
respectively Benjamin Ryan Till
raan F., George Washington Shell
F., John Laurens Manning Trby P.

SOUNDS FROM HOME.
One day during tho last term of
court they had a Bryan ratification
meeting there, and tho speakers
wero tho candidates for solicitor,
all of whom woro present. It was
ra Munition, glorification, jubila
tion and Jollification. May it prove
a Justification. Listening to the
articulation of their peroration we
forgot our tribulation. Everything
was ?ilvor?10 to 1. Gobi bugs
were as scarco as lightning bugs in
a Nobraska bliz/.ird. Tho golden
beams of tho burning sun assumed
a silvery hue as tho gifted orators
issued volumes of sweet notes
from their silver hell tonguos. The
silver fooling was so thick it could
be felt, and one could almost see
dollars flying through tho air. You
couldn't toll anti from 'former.
Not a discordant sound was heard;
all blended harmoniously as tho
beautiful colors of tho rainbow?
and they do say that the bag of
gold at tho end of tho bow has
been changed to a bag of silver.
The light shines hore. North
eastward the star of silver takes
its course, and when the crescnt
forms over Washington's dome tho
golden calf of tho henthon will
chango Its metal.

L SAW LADIES
In the latest styles of (ashing
there came to our alleged mind
the Old Testament quotation: "The
woman shall not wear that which
pertalneth to a man, for all that do
so aro an abomination unto the
Lord thy God." The Bible is truth.
How do the women reconcile it
with fashion? Having nothing
else to do we thought It over and
came to the conclusion that
As long us fashion rules anr* women

No mattor what her changeful attire?

And ruin of man from son to sire,

Though in admiring ho should porspire
Up to his head in lucre's mire,
And in submitting finally oxpiro,
'Mid crash of worlds In the mad desire,
If not, then I'm an awful-.
Though Laurens has the better
court house she cannot surpass
(politeness forbids us saying equal)
Newberry in lawyers, or in any
other of tho professions. Laurens
is all right in this particular, but
when it comes to ministers, doe
tors, lawyers, teachers and orators
Newberry Is far ahead of Any town
in the State. Our preachers are
always in demand, our teachers are
called elsewhere, our physicians
uro sent for from a distance, our
bar is selected from all over the
State, and at the Laurens Bryan
jolly8treetiflcation meeting the two
Newbesry orators eclipsed the able
and brilliant representatives of
tho-seventh judicial circuit of
mighty South Carolina?the State
of States in the glorious Union.
Laurens could take the lead in
cotton mills, for she has magnifi
cent water power in the Enoree
River. The Enoree Mill shows
what can be done in this direction.
But there are not enough mills
there. That great section should
teem with these paying enter
prises. If a party of Northern
capitalists wero t<5 happen upon
Byrd's Mill and view the wide
flow and fall of water and see for
themselves the splendid sites, cot
ton mills would be built and put In
operation in that land as fast as
money could accomplish the pur

THERE IS THIS DIFFERENCE
between a countryman and a town
man?on an average. The c. m.
wants tho t. ra. to go home with
him when in his community, but
the t. m. will lot tho c, m. hustle for
himself when at the court house?
with a few notable exceptions.
Another mistake?occasionally a
well dressed man sees a shabby
countryman whom he takes to be
ignorant. Sometimes the observed is
somewhat ignorant and sometimes
tho observer is very brilliant. But
once in a while tho well dressed
fellow has moro cuff buttons than
brains and the shabby gentleman
is a scholar. Don't judge by ap
pearance or you might misjudge to
your discomfiture. Wait until you
look tho man in the eye and hear
him talk; too many people have
beon already. The countryman is in
dependent and free?-that's what's
the matter with him?and hero in
Newberry he has sense enough to
know that God made the couutry
and Burr Rains the clothes.

Yes, "Prophylactic" is a peculiar
word, and hard to remember, but it
is a Splendid Name for a Tooth
brush, because you use a tooth
brush to prevent your teeth from
decaying, and Prophylactic means
a "preventive of disease." With

hook secured to the brush, and
there is a hole in the end of the
handle which enables you to hang
it up. The head will not touch the

"Prophylactic Tooth-brush," and
see if he will not recommend it. 1

used tobacco in all its foruiB. For twenty
fivo years of that lime I was a grout suf

but couldn't. I took various remidios,

me the least bit of good. Finally, how

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