BREWERTON, S. C. Feb. 7.?-Owing
to tho continued rains the roads are
simply fearful. It is with a great deal

Work at tho Ware Shoals Is pro-1
grossing well, considering tbo cold in
clement weather. Two phone wires
conneot the Shoals with Laurens and
ere long the Shoals will have a railroad
from Barmore'son the Southern. This
will facilitate carriage of material to
the Shoal?. Sometime ago mention was
made concerning tho building of or
completing the road which was graded
via the Shoals and through Sullivansl
Township to Greenville. We do not see*
why it should not be to tho advantage
of some company to finish this road. In
our humble opinion this could be made j
one of the best roads in tho Stato, as it,
goes through the very best, or ns good
farming sections as there are in the
South. Our people aro ready to do
what they can to get this road iu oper-j

was: "Resolved, that if preference

school will have another next Friday.
"Resolved, that city life is more advan
tageous to the culture and development
of tho young." The trustees and pa
trons are earnestly requested to be on
hand. We take this occasion to invite
our County Superintendent, Mr.
Brooks to be with us. We think it is)
getting time for him to come over and

Lard Expensive and Injurious.
Lard is not only expensive but injur
ious to the health when used in liberal
'iiiantities. To make the so-called
cheap patont Hours white enough, tho
life is all ground out of the Hour; then
it is necessary to load it up wi< h lard to
mako it work. This accounts largely
for your heavy blscult? and rolls and
digestion. It takes less thun one-half
the lard to work "Clifton" that it does

Well, Thk Advertiser is not pub

Here is the scheme: People In Lau

The Ai>vbrtjrer believes that if the

tisement of a cow for saw, or a posl
tlon wanted, or wood for sale, or chick
ens or eggs, butter, milk, cotton seed,
peas, hay, and a hundred other things,
will pay, they would advertise more.
Henco these free ads. are offered for
a short time only, with the aim of get
Komember that a free ad. will go In
but once for the same subscriber. If he
wants it for a second lime, the price'
vtill bo one cent a word and not less
than ?6 words.
If you bave anything to sell, a plan
tation, a cow. a dog, if you want any
thing from a railroad down to a three
