JUDUE BARKSDALE SPOKE.
Delivered Confederate Address at
At the unveiling of tho monument
erected by Daughters of the Confed
eracy to live hundred soldiers whose
names are unknown, having died in
hospital during the war, at Monroe,
La., on Jefferson Davis' birthday, June
3rd., the address was delivered by
Judge Allan Barksdale of Huston, La.
Judge Barksdale Is a nephew of Dr.
John A. Harksdule of this city and
was a gallant soldier of the Briars, an
empty oleeve now testifying of his cour
age. The Monroe Bulletin speaks in
high terms of his speech of which it
gives a synopsis. Judge Barksdale
laid especial stress upon the necessity
of teaching Southern children the
truth about the Confederacy in the
schools and tho speech was strong and
Judge Barksdale has been an honor
to his mother state and his friends in
Laurens always hear with delight about
him. They are glad of the prominont
position that he holds among tho peo
I>lo of Louisiana but more than all
t hey tire proud of him as a "Laurens
boy" and a Laurens sold lor of tho
BUILDING UP THE STATE.
What a Laurens Man Is Doing to
Develop South Carolina.
Elsewhere In this issue may be seen
an adverisement of the new White Stone
Lithla Hotel, near Rich Hill in Spar
tanburg. This splendid hotel is James
T. Harris' enterprise. Mr. Harris Is
doing a great work, not merely for
himself but Spartanburg and South
Carolina. By tho use of his brains,
business courage and dogged pluck he
created a great property in this county,
increased the value of all the lands in
the neighborhood, gave the population
for sovoral miles around a new market
for their goods and brought travel
over the South Carolina railways to
Laurens county, advertising the county
and St,.;e in every possible way
(through ut the country. Few men
have done more for this county in a
material way in recent years than J.
T. Harris. He is working in the same
way in Spartanburg but on a larger
scale. His hotel will bring thousands
and tens of thousands of dollars each
year to Spartanburg county and city.
Laurens lost a useful man in J.T. Har
ris and Spartanburg has in him one
who will prove a good asset?who has
already proved his value. A hotel re
sort distributes money among the peo
ple better perhaps than any kind of en
terprise?witness Florida, now the
greatest resort In the world, and its
prosperity. What Mr. Harris is doing
counts big for the general good.

State Just What You Want.
Thero is a lot of the most desirable
trade that no one can get who doesn't
handle "Clifton" flour. Users of "Clif
ton" can't be satisfied with any other
kind. "Clifton" has established a new
standard of purity and the highest ex
cellence. It you have not used "Clif
ton" recently, you should by all means
instruct your grocer to send you a sack
when you order flour again. Don't let
him persuado you he has "something
just as good." He may bo buying
other so-called patent flour at a llttlo
less than he pays for "Clifton" and he
naturally wants to push this on you
because he makes a few conts more on
it. Insist on having "Clifton", If you
want the purest and best.
