A Card from Mr. Adalr.
Dear AdvrbtisRBI Will you
pleuse allow mo a small space in
your paper to make a few state
ments, as I turn over the Super
visor's oftlce to-day to the present
First, I want to thank the people
of Laurens county, both male and
female for their kindness and gen
eral hospitality shown mo luring
the past four years. 1 siucorely
thank thorn all. Secondly, Since
my administration as county com
missioner and Supervisor tho past
four years we havo built seven new
bridges Jointly with adjoining
counties, five of them covered and
wealherboardcd. In Laurens
county we havo had twenty-eight
now bridges, six of th?m covered
and weathorboardod, with quite n
number of small bridges I make
no mention of. Besides a great
deol of repairs have been done on
other bridges all over the county.
I think I could safely say that the
county is seventy-five per cent
better off in bridges to-day than
four years ago, 1 havo also had
two flro proof vaults built in tho
court home worth $1,000 or $1,200
to tho county and tho records. Tho
houses at the county poor house are
at least 100 per cent, improved.
Wo had two good tenant housos
built and all of the pauper's houses
sealed all over and four of them
recovered. Tho county also has
two good mules, wagon and har
ness, two wall tents, ono tent fly,
tools of all description for building
bridges, rock peers and working
Iho highways. Wo havo also man
aged to have all Court expenses
paid in cash, and all claims against
the connty have been paid monthly
and quarterly in cash.
From the Treasurer's report af
ter having two months added to
the flcal year, we will have enough
money to pay all demands against
tho county up to January 1st 1897.

Death, the insatiate archer, has in
vaded our community, and snatched
away from loving arms ono who was
the delight of his father, the pride of
his mother, and the beloved of all who
knew him,?John Brannon Kay?the
bright, promising and exemplary son
of Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Bay. Jack, as
he was familiarly known, was a regu
lar attendant of church and Sunday
school, in whose services he exhibited
a large degree of loving interest. As
the drops of dew, touched by the sun
light, upward Hies from out tho morn
ing blossoms, so his young, pure soul
passed to the glory of the skies, lie
who gave the gem which shed the lus
tre on affection's diadem bereft the
glowing circle of its fondly cherished
prize?to bear away the jewel bright
to bless its native skies. It is manly to
weep over our bereavements. While
we drop the tear of sorrow at the
grave?drops of anguish wrung from
the bruised tendrils of our nffections?
all seems dark to us. We think too
much of our loss nud not enough of the
gain of the departed. As our hearts
quiver in the throos of anguish at riven
ties may our hearts follow the spirit of
our loved one as it enters the pearly
gates, and feel a joy unspeakable lining
our breast at the consciousness that
though he can no more come to us we
can go to him and greet one another in
that fadeless realm beyond the starry
dome where angel voices welcome
breathe to "Home Sweet Home."
The bell that summons us to attend
the remains of loved ones to their last
resting place tells of woe and more. It
tells of sorrow on earth and joy in
heaven; of parents souls Immersed in
anguish at the separation, and of the
spirit of the child bathed in joy and
the effulgence of glory at meeting with
the blood-washed throng. It tells par
ents not to sorrow without hope; that
their treasure is none the less precious
to them because it has been moved
where chilling winds nor poisonous
breath can destroy; to lighten the
stroke by drawing nearer to Him who
wieldeth the rod.
Our warmest sympathy goes out to
the grief-stricken family. Great as
their gloom is, the rainbow of a glori
ous hope spans their tears and illum
ines their woe.
"Thou wilt heal the broken heart,
Which like the plants that throw
Their fragrance from the wounded
Breathes sweetness out of woe."
The face of the cloud nearest us may
be black as jet, but its inner lining next
to heaven shines like molted silver,
and its edges like burnished gold, as it
catches the beams of inner glory shin
ing through the "gates ajar" as the
loved one passed through to his ever
Insting abode. 'Behind a frowning
providence he hides a smiling face,"
bright with mercy and luminous with
love. Jack has been called up higher,
"Waits our coming in a land where
blossoms never fade;
Where griefs severe never come,
Nor sorrow casts a shade."
