LAURENS, 8. C, April ?0, 1002.
Goods Roads are absolutely
necessary in this county. Bad
road? and poverty striekeu
people fare 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 Laurens must have.
A Word to Clinton.
A prominent businessman of Clinton
who was here last week said that an
artesian well and water works plant
were being discussed in that town. This
is what Clinton urgontly neods. Clin
ton is the soundest and most solvent
community in South Carolina without
an exception, its people are full of
pluok and progress and public spirit
and whatever is undortaken in Clinton
succeeds. Clinton has fine cotton mills,
fine schools, far better streets than
most South Carolina towns, good build
ings and some splendid public institu
tions, of which tho Thornwoll Orphan
ago and Presbyterian College of South
Carolina are notable oxamplos. But
Clinton should have better water?not
that her presont water supply is worse
than that of other towns?but because
any and all towns of 3,000 people have
passed the point where surface wells
aro safe. Greenville, undor the moun
tain's shadow, with admirable natural
drainage, was frequently afflicted with
typhoid fevors ten or twelvo years ago.
Then tho wells wore abandoned and
splendid water brought from the top of
Paris Mountain. From that time for
ward typhoid has been a raro visitor
and Groenvillo has been tho healthiest
town in tho South or perhaps in the
country. In this town, too, a markod
doorcase in typhoid fover has taken
place since the people bavo been
u?lng artesian water and tho experi
ence of many othor towns has been sim
ilar. In scattered villages the menaco
from wolls is not relatively great
but in towns of sevoral thousand it is
considerable. To a town like Clinton,
already one of the best places for good
citizens to live in that can be found on
the map, a good artesian water system
would bo worth hundreds of thousands
A Hearing and Pitching.
Senator Tillman spoke at Manning
Friday and completely used up Appelt.
.s tho daily newspapers said, he
'ayod Appelt." It was a case of
.joting a sparrow with a cannon and
1,500 people yelled and clapped their
hands and snorted and reared up on
their hindlegs and soomed to enjoy
it. Appolt charged and Tillman
counter-charged, tho name of the
Deity was dragged in on various occa
sions, there was talk of lies and thiev
ery and swindling and rebates
and nothing was proved or dis
proved by anybody. Altogether it
was a pleasant and edifying spectacle
for people who are' pleased with that
sort of thing. Senator Tillman was
formerly Mr. Appelt's friend. Friday
the Senator disowned Mr. Appelt and
la not a great doal poorer than before.
Meanwhile Mr. Appolt has a post office,
which is a plenty for him, and Senator
Tillman has a Senatorshlp, which is a
plenty for him. And the plough-boy
plows on and is paying higher taxes to
day than he has paid in twonty years.
VTho Shan't Vote?
Who shan't vote in the primary?
That is a question that is causing a
number of people to fidget. In The
Advertiser's opinion only the worthy
should be allowed to vote. Who are
the worthy? Laurons county has 3,000
who are more or less fit. If any should
be cast out thoy can take comfort from
a tombstone inscription In one of the
"Here lies tho body of Dick Jones?
Born, 1810; dlod 18B0.
He never voted In his life?
Of such is the Kingdom Heaven."

Candidates, State and County, and
Chat About Them.
Two or thrco candidates have burst
their shells in tho last few days. So
far the sharpest Interest centers around
tho raco for the House of Representa
tives and Supervisor.
"How did you voto on the proposition
for the legislature to meet onco in two
years?" Ropresentativo Coopor was
"I voted for it" was tho reply.
"Well, you are sound on that whoth
or you are on anything cleo or not"
commonted the citizen.
By tho way, an ADVERTISER man
heard Citizen Jo3h Ashley say that tho
prosent legislative delegation from
Laurons was tho best tho county has
had since ho had boen a member of the
HOUSO. Of course, it is possible that
tho taste and judgment of Lauren9 vo
tors may or may not agree with that
of Josh Ashley.
Mr. Jock Saxon has been talked of in
connection with tho House of Repre
Reprosontativo McGowan will bo a
candidate for re-election and so will
Representatives Nichols and Coopor.
One of the sharp issues of tho cam
paign will bo tho chicken bill. There
appears to be some delicacy felt by the
candidates In discussing this important
measure but it ought to be ventilated
fully. Whether or not a ravenous old
hen or rusty and knotty old rooster
shall bo allowod to run at largo are
mattors that should be determined.
All candidates should be questioned
8carchingly on this subject. Of cour60
the record of the incumbent members is
written in the journal of the house.
L. J. Williams, of the. dispensary
board of control, and Edgeilold man,
is said to be a candidate for governor.
Solicitor Thurmond of Edgeilold, (good
follow he Is), is a candidate for Con

of Oconoo aro running for Congress In
the Third District. G. S. Mower and
C. T. Wycho of Nowberry will proba
bly run. Wyatt Alkon Is a son of the
Jato Congressman Alken and a cousin
of Dr. H. K. Aiken. He is woll known
bore and is one of the leading candi
dates. W. J. Stribling is a lawyer
and a son-in-law of Mrs. J . J. Norton,
who was Miss Campbell of Cross Hill
The outlook is that Mr. Scarborough
is the only Congressman who will be
re-elected without opposition, unless
tho lield should bo loft clear to Mr.
Johnson of this district.
The gossip In these parts is that tho
candidacy of both Col. Elliott and Mr.
Henderson for tho Senato from the
South-western part of the State will
lossen tho chances of both. In this
county the heaviest vote would be
polled by Johnstone and Latimer if tho
election wore to-morrow. It Is early.
Col. Talbort, for governor, has plenty
of friends here. The old soldier in

Mr, J. <J. Walker Estab

Tho Output Finds a Heady Sale and
is of Superior Qaulity?News
& Courier's Comment.
In Tue Advertiser's Cross Hill
correspondence will be seen tho ac
count of Mr. J. Q. Walker's broom fac
tory. The Laurons correspondent of
the News and Courier wrote to that
paper regarding it and Tho News and
Courier of Friday printed the follow
'?An interesting short story comes
from i.aureus regarding the success of
a 'small industry' that has been estab
li8hed there by tho enterprise of one
man. It is noted by our local oorres
Eondent that The News and Courier
as long been advising and urging the
growing of broom corn and the manu
facture of brooms in the State, and the
story proves that the advice was good.
??It is in brlof that Mr. J. Q. Walker
invested one or two hundred dollars in
broom making machinery, imported a
stock of broom corn, and at onco made
a good business for himself. His brooms
llud a ready sale, on their merits, in
tho near markets, 'are accounted far
superior to the average article brought
from the larger factories, and thoso
who have onco used them will buy no
othor.' The retail morchants havo
agreed to 'take all he can mako,' ac
cordingly, and he is now urging tho
farmers in his neighborhood to raise
broom corn and save him tho necessity
of buying It at distant points and pay
ing tho freight on it?an arrangement
that will profit tbom, of course, as well
as help him.
"The point of the story is that by a
little enterprise, and a very little
money, Mr. Walker has established a
now industry in his county that will
bonoflt him and many of his neighbors
every year. It is a 'small' one, in Its
beginnings, it is truo, but it is capable
of considerable expansion, and Its good
effects will extond with its growth.
"The example it affords Is easily fol
lowed. There Is no reason, evidently,
why wo should continue to 'import'
brooms by the train load. Any county
can manufacture its own supply, of a
'superior' quality, if only it contains
one citizen who Is disposed to such a
