ONE DOLLAR A TEAB
Hereafter The Advertiser will bo
sent one year for one dollar to persons
who will pay in advance.
Numbers of persons complain that
tbo prlco of The Advertiser is too
high. Thoy say that one dollar a
yoar is onough.
The price of the paper is placed at
one dollar a yoar only because sub
scribers rofuso to pay for it in ad
vance. Whon tho proprietor has to
tako tho risk of frequently getting
nothing for tho paper, and besides, has
to pay for collecting, thoro is no prolit
at all in publishing the papor at ono
dollar. If all The Advertiser's sub
ecribors would pay one dollur in ad
vance tho profit would bo much bettor
than at ono dollar and a half on a cre
dit. Thoroforo, in order that thoro
may bo no reason for complaint, The
Advertiser will be sent ono yoar to
any person who pays tho dollar in ad
Subscribers In arrears who wish the
paper at ono dollar must cf course sot
tlo their arrears and may then pay one
dollar In advance for tho twolvo months
This rule will bo rigidly adhered to.
The cash must bo paid boforo tho pa
por is sent, olso the price will romaln
one dollar and a half.

Editor Laurens advertiser:
Somo of tho boat cltizons of tho
town aro speaking of tho rough con
dition of the streets. It ocours to me
that it wou'd bo advisable at this time
to have tho city purchase a rock
crusher as I understand they can be
purchased at a small outlay?porhaps
for $1,500 or $2,000 on time. We now
have onoogh rock on some of our
streets to mako them well macada
mized If they wore only crushed prop
erty. The city of Greenville has tho
prisoners getting- out rock and thou
have thorn crushed very flno by means
of their machlno. They are getting
somo permanent roads that are a pleas
ure to ride ovor, to say nothing of the
oaso of yohielos and animals. It would
soora a good platform for somo of tho
now council to work on, as Laurens
should not bo behind Chester, Rock
Hill, Anderson and neighboring towns
in tho Improvements of her streets.?
Narrow thoy are, but It Is a good fault
because thoy aro easily kept In repair
aud quickly covered with rock when
onco a start Is made. Will somo of
our other citizens give views on this
matter? It is ono that has long beon
neglected and is a subject affecting the
health of tho peoplo as all know tho

To THK Laurens Advertiser:
In your paper of the 2d inst. is
an article under the heading of
Cherokee and othe names, copied
from the Spartanburg Herald, In
which is the following: "ThereJs
a Buffalo Creek on the York side,
it riseh up in Cleveland county and
comes down for a few miles
through the new county. Near its
mouth Co). Williams, who was
mortally wounded at Kings Moun
tain, Is buried. His grave is un
marked. Since his descendants
have failed to mark his grave, we
suggest that the daughters of the
Resolution of the Piedmont section
erect a stone of some sort to his
Now this is very kind of the
Herald*s correspondent, and a very
proper thing to do, if there is no
mistake, about this very important
matter. I have never been to Kingtt
Mountain. I lived in Georgia when
the matter of a Monument was be
l?g discussed, consequently am
not as well informed as I ought to
be, but unless I am very badly mis
taken, my uncle, the late Col. John
O. Williams, who was a man of
great wealth and took a very lively
interest in perpetuating the mem
ory of Ids Revolutionary kin, he
being a grandson of Col Williams,
had a monument erected to his
memory. There was some difficul
ty in locating the grave, and he
may have had the monument erect
ed on the battle field; at any rate I
am sure there is such a monument
somewhere about Kings Mountain.
AI? .ut the same time he and the
lato Col. James H. Irby had a hand
some Monument erected over their
uncles * who were masacred at
Hays Station, in this vicinity.
This Is now in a delapidated condi
tion. Some think it was struck by
lightning, but it looks to me that
it was struck by an axe in the hands
of some ignorant vandal, but of
pure fiendi8huess. Be that as it
may, the monument is made of
Several panels, one of theso is bro
ken in several pieces, which caused
the whole structure to fall, and
so it lies with tho pieces liable to
be carried off. One new panel,
with the inscription transfercd
would mend the injury. This is
surrounded by a substantial iron
fence, which is in perfect preseva
tion. It is to be hoped that some
one or more of tho descendants
of these true patriots will havo
this new panel put in, thereby pre
serving the monument.

A NOTABLE DAY.
Mr. Editor: It has been a long
time since I have written an arti
cle for publication and I take the
present opportunity of giving you
a few dots of what has happened
this day, (Thursday, March ljth to
me. Having business in the coun
try, I set out knowing where I was
going. After travelling a few
miles from the city of Lanrens, I
found that I had made a great
mistake in leaving the city, but
however I am not a man to re
trace my steps, and on % wont. I
found the roads in very bad con
dition indeed, and requiring tho
caro and attention of our most
worthy Supervisor and his staff,
chain gang thrown-in. Reaching
my destination, I halted in front of
the Bailey High School, taught by
that highly accomplished and tal
ented young lady, Miss Mary
Bramlett. In school I had the
pleasure of meeting many bright
eye8,bolh boys and girls there being
a goodly number of them on tho
roll, and hearing them recite their
lessons, which speaks well for
their kind preceptor. I can but
congratulate the patrons and
friends of Bailey High School in
securing the services of so excel
lent a teacher. I may be called
to an account for my visit by our
worthy School Commissioner, L. T.
H. Daniel, but I can assure him
that my visit was strictly a busi
ness one. Then I left for home,
but concluding that I would not
return bj the same way, I thought
a country road would bo far moro
preferable, making a few calls by
tho way. My first call was at tho
hospitable home of my dear friend,
Mrs. Nancy Day, and to my tur
prise I found sevoral kind friends
were there and others expected to
aid and assist her in celebrating
her ninety-fifth annivorsary. A
bountiful repast was spread and
each and every one did ample jus
tice to the occasion. It was a pleas
ure to the writer to hear Mrs. Day
tell of tho days before ho was born,
manners and customs of our fore
fathers, about tho war of 1812 and
many other interesting topics. May
she live to see soveral more* anni
versaries. She Is the oldest person
in my recollection. Never was an
occasion moro onjoyable by tho
writer. Tho day being dreary, at
tended with light showers at inter
vals, I left for home, calling a few
moments to pay my kindost regards
to Rov. Mosby Tompleton and the
family. I found my friond not so
?\ ell, but pleasant and cheerful as
was his nature, hoping for his re
covery and that his usefulness bo
spared and that he may yet see
the rich fruits of his labor in the
field where Providenco in his
wisdom has callod him to labor.

recovery was impossible. Her stay
