W. W. Ball,
LAUREMS, 8. C, April 88, 1002.
Goods Roads are absolutely
necessary in this county. Bad
roads and poverty stricken
people are inseparable. Good
roads double the value of lands
and make farmers prosper.
They should be built, they must
be built, even if it require
higher taxes. Permanent good
roads Laurena must have.
It's worth something, worth much,
to the people that a vigorous, clear
headed young farmer like ?. C. Hey
ward is a candidate for governor. One
may glauco at him and set it down
without further inquiry that he is a
man. In five minutes acquaintance
one learns that he is an informed and
cultivated man with such bearing
that the people would bo proud
of him in any company whero be
might bo placed as their ropro
sontativo. Whether he was a Till
manlto or an Anti, we do not know,
and when one meets him, the question
does not seem .entirely pertinent or ne
cessary?one is thinking of him as a
living, active man and tho stale, fetid
issues of older times do not intrude
Other good men will ba in the race
for Governor and TUB ADVERTISER is
not now advising anybody to support
Mr. Heyward. His views may be out
of harmony with ours; wo shall wait
and see. Col. Talbert, a lino old sol
dier; Mr. Ansel and Dr. Timmerman
are all discussed a* 10 of thorn will
bo the better choice . .? question to bo
woighed and sifted later. Governor
McSweeny, who has given n great deal
of satisfaction to a groat many peo
ple and The Advektiskr among
them, is imaginable as a candidate and
a dangerous ono to competitors. Nev
ertheless, It cannot be gainsayed that
the coming of this young Collelon far
mer breathes a life and tone into the
polities of the Stato that is distinctly
uplifting and strengthening. News
papers are saying that Mr. Hoyward
"is making a good improsslon." That
Is inevitable. A modest, virile, candid,
intelligent man will make a good im
pression on any porson?whether that
person be a bishop or a burglar.
The newspapers have been comment
ing sagely on the society column in
augurated by tho Charleston Post.
Never before has Charleston had a "so
ciety column". In those| parts it
was thought unnecessary for Char
leston?tho,t society in that most
charming of cities was so exclusive
that it could bo "handled in half a
stick minion", printer's parlance. A
column! Why it would peel otT any
man's aristocratic hide to print his
name along with a whole column of
names. Now in the up country, what
a friend of ours lovingly calls the
"damupcountry," society people are
unknown. In fact we have at least ten
cotton mills to one clawhammer coat
in this barbaric region.
The ADVERTISER has received bio
graphical sketches of numerous candi
dates for State officers, some threo or
four of which may be of news value
after the primary.
Unfortunately for tho President,
some of the views ho tactfully express
ed in Charleston had already been
hopelessly MoLaurinized in South Car
It is said that Mr. Roosevelt who has
killed hundreds of Mountain lions In

DEATH OF MBS. W. D. SIMPSON.
Passed Away In Spartanburg?Tho
Interment Here Saturday.
Mrs. Jane SSnipson, widow of the
late Governor and Chief Justice Wil
liam D. Simpson, died at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Stobo J. Simpson in
Spartanburg at 8:15 o'clock last Friday
morning. On Saturday the body was
brought here on the midday train and
Interred in tho city cemetery by the
sido of hor late husbadd, in tho pre
sence of a large number of friends and
relativep. Brief services were con
ducted at tho grave by Rev. Robert
Adams of the Presbyterian Church and
many beautiful offerings of tlowors
were sent. The pallbearers were: C.
D. Barksdale, R. A. Cooper, N. B.
Dial, J. D. Watts, O. W. Tune, T. E.
Todd, L. W. Slmklns and W. W. Ball.
Mrs. Simpson was 73 years of age.
She was the only child of tho late Mr.
and Mrs. Lucy Young, her father hav
ing been ono of the most distinguished
lawyers and citizens of the State. She
and Mr. Simpson were married in 18(7
and the lives of the two were spent
hero in Laurens until Judgo Simpson
succeeded General Wado Hampton as
governor of theJState upon tho latter's
election to the United States Senate,
tho former having been chosen Lieu
tenant Governor tn 1876 and again In
1878. Judgo Simpson passed away in
Mrs. Simpson Is survived by three
daughters and four sons, namely: Mrs.
N. J. Holmes of Atlanta, Mrs. John
N. Wright Of Lisbon, this couuty, Mrs.
S, J. simp:on of Spartanburg and Col.
Henry Y. Simpson of this city, William
D. Simpson of Columbia, Lamest A.
and John W. Simpson of Spartanburg.
Mrs. Simpson was a devoted and cou
sistent member of tho Presbyterian
Church. Sho was a gontle, kindly lady,
full of charity and patience and in her
were blended the graces of m'.nd and
heart that go to make up tho beautiful
and womanly Christian life. She was
tho fitting help-mate of the pure and
noblo spirit of hor distinguished hus
band. Although the evening of tho
lives of nolther of the pair could bo
spent In Laurens, Laurens claimed
them always as her own people and It
is appropriate that thoy rest with thoir
fathers at home.
The children of Mrs. Simpson have
in tho loss of thoir beloved mother tho
sympathy of all our people.
Deafness Cniinot Be Cured
By local application as thoy cannot
reached the diseased portion of tho
ear. There Is only one way to euro
deafnosa, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Doafness Is caused by an
inllamod condition of the mucous lin
ing of tho Eustaehlan Tube. When
this tube Is inflamed you have a rumb
ling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed, Doafness Is
the result, and unless the inflammation
can bo taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever: nine cases out of
ton are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing but an inflamed condidltou of
the mucous surfaces.
We will glvo One Hundred Dollars

Dials Church is situated about three
miles West of the little town of Gray
court. It was supposed to have been
organized about one hundred and ten
years ago by Lev! Gareeon who lived
in Anderson County. It was organized
with eleven white members and one
black ono, named Easter, who belonged
to Martin Dial. They first held ser
vices in Martin Dial's little log cabin
ami.then a log-house was built for a
church. It is eaid that a good sized
dog could have crawled between the
logs. Tho floor was made of punch
ings, the seats were of slabs, and the
pulpit was of boa ids. Martin Dial and
Gideon Thompson held class meetings
every Sunday afternoon, and they were
the happiest people who lived in those
The church was very small un to
1840, and they carried on a revival
meeting that year and one hundred
and thirty members ware added to the
church In thirteen day*. Later on,
the ohuroh began to grow and-they
thought it was expedient to build a
larger one, so the log cabin was takon
down and a frame house built, and we
now have as nicely arranged a country
church as you will lind mos*, anywhere.
