In honor of Miss Minnie Moore,
of Portsmouth, Miss Mary Waller

Thursday evening to a German. Danc
ing began at 0 and continued until
1 o'clock with an intermission for the
things which cool and refresh at
The dancers were led with grace and
eafce through tin- mazes of the German
by Mr. Young Vance.
Miss Moore is one ol the most attrac
tive visitors I,aureus has ever been so
fortunate as to find in her midst , and
the entertainment, which her presence
called forth was in every way worthy
of its inspiration.
Mrs. S. M. Wllkes was "at Home,"
to a large number of her friends on Fri
day afternoon and on Friday evening
again she und Mr. Wilkes opened the
doors of their delightful home to the
unmarried young people of the city,
who passed the evening in dancing ami
all sorts of quaint devices for fun ar
ranged far their entertainment
by their host and hostess. In a
hunt for odds and ends, distributed
through the rooms in the most surpris
ing localities, Miss Louise N ance was
the most successful and the winner
therefore of a dainty cup ami saucer.
While Mr.Willie Anderson as the bad in
luck will sip his coffee in future from a
huge tin cup
Mrs. Wilkes, to whom has been
granted the happy gift of being the
very perfection of a hostess, was assist

Gov. Ellerhe has ordered an election
for the 26th of .June upon the question
of tho proposed new county, embracing
lion nr. Path in Anderson, and a por
tion of Sullivan and Waterloo in this
county. As wo have aforetime said,
while wo would rogrot to have our old
county dismembered, it is a business
proposition and not one of sonti
mont. Lot no Qualified votor cast a bal
lot because it is novel, or bocauso it
may have a speculative bonolit. Lau
rcn8 is not jno ot tho large counties
and the (froat bulk of her population
are eonvonlcnt to tho county seat. As
a county she is making groat strides
towards tho frontjindustrlnlly. now has
ninety-six miles of railway and is tho
7th county in tho State in the valuo of
railway property. Her taxable prop
erty Is assessed at four millions. Tho
proposed now county in prospective
progress is not to be compared with
I.aureus. Hor assessed wealth Is
scarcely two millions and industrial
prospoct3 not promising. The new
county must iminodiatoly be saddlod
with debt for public buildings and it is
falsest economy to build cheap onos.?
Again tho now county must assume a
"propor proportion" of tho indebted
ness of tho old county and a chango
promiios no financial advantago. Wo
are frank to say that wo know no equal
area in tho county or Stato presenting
an equal standard of intelligence with
that propsed to be taken from Laurcns

No, my friend all Drug Stores
are not alike : some are better
than others, just as some men
are better than other men, and
some business houses give you
belter value for your money than
others, and they are not always
die ones who advertise the
/invest prices, either. It is the

that do not understand that bus
We offer both experience and
ability in our line.
