WHY NOT DEPOSIT
MONEY IN BANKS?
Some Suggestions to LevelHcndcd
Farmers and Others?Something
About Robbery Dangers.
ltecently when a big robbery took
place not far from here a man phoned
to a bank and inquired if the banks
would be responsible for stolen money.
The bank answered yes of course.
This illustrates that many people do
not understand about banks. Laurens
has four banks, all strong institutions.
There is a lot of money in the country.
There is a lot In these banks. There is
also a lot outside.
vaults are safe;.
Every bank is provided with a ilrst
class vault. Any bank is ten times as
safe as a private house. The individual
who keeps large sums in his pookets
has neither the monoy safe or his life
Bafe. Now and then in the country
people are killed for their money. This
rarely happens in town.
In the banks here olectric lights burn
all night. The vaults and safes can be
seen from the street. The town is po
liced. The man who robs these banks
must do it practically in daylight.
Not one has ever been robbed.
The man who keeps his money in a
bank learns business habits. All pro
gressive men, there are no exceptions
to this rule, doal with banks.
There is a great deal of money in
this county that is not in banks. Does
it help the banks to deposit in them?
Certainly it does. But it helps the de
positor too. If we had no banks in this
country wouldn't we bo in a nice fix? If
we had no depositors we would have
rill'. RKGULAR DEPOSITOR'
The man who is a regular depositor
will always have banking friends. The
banks look after those who help them.
That's tho first rule of the banking
business. There is a time when every
man wants to borrow ? some time or
other in his life. When he oan put bis
money in the safest place possible?in
a bank?and at the same time make a
friend of tbe bank, it is strange that he
fails sometimes to do it.
The great power of the New England
States lies in the fact that the working
people there have hundreds of millions
of dollars laid away in the banks.

$6,000, which he promptly gave and
Ned Foster, the Inman school pupil
who was Bhot by Pitts, lingered until
Friday and died.
An Inquest was held and it appeared
that Pitts told four hnyp, among them
Foster, to "stay in." Foster had been
told to stay in the day before and had
Pitts asked Foster to oome into a
private room and told the other three
to go into an adjoining room. These
other three were peeping through the
door into the room where Pitts and
Foster were. Pitts got switches and
told Foster that he must whip him.
Foster said that he waB unwilling to be
whipped. Pitts struck Foster with the
switch and a scuffle ensued.
Here the evidence grows conflicting.
Pitts drew a pistol. Foster, in an ante
mortem statement, says that he struck
the pistol and It was discharged. He
did not claim in this statement that
Pitts fired it. He says that at about
the same moment the other three boys
rushed in. These three say they came

THE OLD FAMILIAR FACES
By Charles Lamb
CHARLES LAMB, essayist and poot, was born In
London In 1775 and died there in 1831. Lamb's fnme
rests upon his essays and the "Tales From Shake
speare," the latter written In collaboration with his
sister. The story of the dovotlpn of Lamb to his sis
ter, who killed their mother in a fit pi Insanity, Is
well known. Much of the charm of his wrltlngB lies In

HAVE) had playmates, I have had companions,
In my day* of childhood, In my joyful schooMays;
All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.
I have been laughing, I have been carousing,
Drinking late, sitting late, with my bosom cronies;
All, all are gene, the old familiar faces.
I loved a Love once, fairest among women;
Closed are her doors on me, I must not see her?
All, all are gene, the old familiar faces.
I have a friend, a kinder friend has no man:'
Like an lngrate, I left my friend abruptly;
Left him, to muse on the old familiar faces.
Qhost-like I paced round the haunts of my childhood;
Barth seemed a desert 1 was bound to traverse,
Seeking to find the old familiar facee.
Friend of my bosom, thou more than a brother,
Why wert not thou born In my father's dwelling?
Bo might we talk of the old familiar faces.
How some they have died, and some they have left me,
And some are taken from me; all are departed;
All, all are gone, the old fumillar faces.
HAD TIME WITH
Heard the Robber Bust a
Amusing Account of an
Finally the Desperado was Discovered
Before Serious Damage was Done
?Some Storm Echoes.
For somo months my wife and I have
been living aloue?tbo children all
having left?some married olT and an
other off at school. So, while we are
not lonesome, wo havo ample opportu
nity for reflection and serious medita
tion. While sitting around the old
hearthstone sweetly reflecting and mer
rily chatting laBt Sunday night we
wore terrified by one of the most try
ing If not the most dangerous on
slaughts known to this section. I have
never been of a nervous temperament;
never what you might term a coward.
When I sit around my hearth-stone or
l:o down in my bed it is with a feeling
of perfect security?not the slightest
apprehension of danger over disturbs
my tranquility. in fact my wife, thinks
I am game?a rogular impenetrable
post behind which she can stand with
utmost safety. I would not have her
think otherwise for the world. But for
all this our nerves were considerably
ratlcd last Sunday night when just
outside tho house about twonty feet
from us we heard a cap*burst. "What
was that?" said she. "Don't know"
seid I, lazily and carelessly- all calm
on tho outRide, but inwardly, all com
motion. I had never before enjoyed
tho experience of fitting in tho bril
liant lamplight beside my window
while some safecracker stood out by tho
wugon house and snapped cap? at mo
from his dark fortress. We might not
havo taken in tho situation so readily
had it not been Sunday nigh', and then,
besides this, we had Just fold our cot
ton and delivered it tho day before.
Under this enervating, not to say
frightened, condition wo began at once
to enquire mo-o fully into the bit lation.
My wifo stealthily stepped to the front
door, opened it and peered out into the
darkness li?tening with all ears for any
signal of further ass. nit. In tho mean
time I had slipped into the store room
whore I held the dcor slightly aj?r and
well between myself and tho place
where 1 heard tho cap concus, listen
ing for any movements lhat might be
taking plaoe on the outside. After a
short while, having discovered no signs
of fuither developments, we repaired
to our seats around tho fire, tho
Madamo having let down tho blinds.
Of course I did not let her know that I
had been peeping out of the store-room
door?had only to get a drink of wate**,
you 6ee. 'Ihere wo eat contemplating
and, in low tone, discussing tho fiend
ish burglaries growing so common in
these piping days of peace; and how wo
had only one barrel loaded of the two
shotguns that hung in the rack and
not another shell in tho house. As a
matter of course I was not disturbed in
tho least outwardly, and talked with
great composuro. tolling my wife that
it didn't matter about tho guns if she
only could find me thoso gymnastic
bats tho girls brought from college. We
could turn out tho lights when they
came in on us and I can cut a wide
swath through a crowd of robb rs and
pistols in tho dark. I had rather have
a good bat than a half doz >.n guns in a
close dark engagement. Having put on
a good external front I soon had her
quiet, and to my mind, a long sight
calmer in the inner-man than l wns
myself. So she finally suggested that
wo go out to the placo where the cap
was bursted and eec who was there.
Naturally I agreed to go. Had to. I'd
st'ck my head In a eye'one current
rather than intimate to my wife that 1
was afraid of anything on earth?ex
cept a horse. Sho knows I'm afraid of
a horse but says that is only wise and
manly, She look tho lamp and led tho
way. I followed carelessly (?) behind,
giving the impresalon that I was not
interested enough in the affair even to
lead the way and it was about true. As
we neareu tho wagon homo we could
hear an indistinct noise just about
whero we heard the concussion of the
oap. Cautiously wo drow nearer to the
scene of battle and, ns 1 feand, to our
fato. Just as tho cold chill* began to
run up try back from the suspicious
noise to to heard in tho wagon house,
my wife s'opp^d suddenly and sa'd,
"Here you are." What could 1 do but
slap my hand to my hip pocket and
scream out In wild threatening tone,
"who are yon? throw up your hands,
you safe cracker, you nl/ht burglar!"
You see I had no pistol, notevcu a gym
nastic bat. I had to rnn a bluff and
scream vehemently or maybe, be shot.
It is noedlosB to say that I foltunbeara
bly humiliated when my wife turned to
me in pitying surpriso and said,
"What in the woild do you moan? Are
yon scared out of your wits? It is noth
ing but .Jumbo, (that's our cow dog).
Can't you see him? Are yon afraid of
Jumbo that you want him to hold up
his handsV Why I know all about what
it was now, I took the nest egg out of
that old hen's nest to-day and put it on
that box there and ho's found it, and
that's the cap and Jumbo is the safe
cracker and night burglar, too?"
I'm done with it; you, hear.
P. 8. A terrible storm passed through
this section last Monday 16th ?1?.., do
ing considerable damage to timber,
fencing and unall houses. On Mr.
R;b*. Co'oman's p'acc, I !earn, tbere
were several cot'apes unroofed tind
uuch timber blown down. The center
of storm passed through my plantation
from West to East leaving my dwelling
soxo 200 yards to the right. I: blew
down nearly every stock pine In my
woods of about l?aoros?some two hun
dred p'nes I calculate. Several large
apple trce3 and a pair of stables were
blown down on my premises. I have
heard of no deaths resulting. I hap
pened to be caught out in this storm
near its center in a buggy and took It
all in that was fit to fool with. I would
liko to tell you just how I did and
what I thought and all but having been
so frightened and humiliated the night
before I feel too bad. I am getting
almost afraid to get scared these days
?afraid the whole flurry might be a
fake?a piece of Jumbo's foolery?some
spontaneous combustion or maybe tho
combustion of a nest egg. Who knows?
