A bill has boon introduced iu Con

or with postomee of *f>000 the bonolit of

have such a system established hero.
The bill is likely to pass. The post of

seven thousand dollars each year and
certainly growing larger, so Laurens,

Incenreuienco Caused by Trains and
Cars in Main Street.
Editor ok The Advertiser:
The frequent encroachment by tho
oars of the Charleston ?fe Western
Carolina Railway Company upoa tho
highway crossing on East Main street
In the oity of Laurens makes It p.oper
for the writer to call the attention of
the public authorities to this matter.
The cars aro often left standing upon
the crossings for over five minutes
at a time and at night sometimes
freight cars aro left projecting over
the highways some distance which
makes horses shy around in cross
ing. A lady said to the writer to
day as she orossed the place that the
orossing was really dangerous and that
a flagman ought to be stationed there
for the public safety. On two occasions
the writer was in danger of being
struck by a crossing oar for want of
sufilolent signals at the time. The au
thorities ought to urge upon the rail
road to place their cars away from the
crossing and not blockade the same.
The city authorities ought also to see
to it that the telephone posts are sot
further from the edge of the street
near the crossing so as to leave a wider
traveling place near the crossing on
either side. The bed of the street just
below the railroad crossing and West
of the river ought to he elevated so as
not to make such a steep ascent to cross
the track of the railroad.
Letter to W. L. Boyd.
Laurens, S. C,
Dear Sir: How would you like to take
the agency for the "Fewer-gallons;
wears longer" paint?Devoe Lead and
It will cut in half the amount of paint
you sell for any one job, but will mul
tiply the number of jobs by three, four,
five, ten, flfteen--as much as you and
we can make It by putting tbo facts
before your fellow-townsmen.
People are going to paint more when
they find it's so worth while to paint,
and they are going to be glad they did
it Instead of sorry, as many are now.
It's like making a harness. He who
finds a way to make a harness in less
time, at less cost, and make it last
twice to four timps as long? 's going to
get the business of bis town.

agency for Devoe Lead and '/Ana?the
