Oood Order Necessary.
To prosperity of Laurens good order
on tho streets night and day Is neces
sary. For the last few years Laurens
has been, generally speaking, an or
derly town. Few crimes of violence
have been perpeteratod and on the
whole tho iwlicing has compared fa
vorably with that of any town in the
Now and thon, however, one hears
complaint. The Advertiser has
heard some complaints lately of noise
and profanity in the streets, especially
at night, and tome citizens have un
doubtedly been subjected to annoyance.
Whilo the condition of affairs is not
serious, it is worth while to call atten
tion In a mild way to It before it grows
worse. An ounce, of prevention is worth
several pounds qf cure, and it is hoped
that the ounce will be administered at

Mt. Bethel, March 16.?We have
read Brother Bub's thrilling expor
ience with robbers, safe crackers, etc.
which reminded me of a very remark
able experience of Mr. Davo Jones of
Greenwood County in which ho Bhowed
much courage and horoism and says to
this day that he is the bravest man in
South Carolina and that he knows ]
what he Is talking about whon he says
Mr. Jones related this circumstance
to your humble scribe as follows:
On a very bright moonlight night
about 2 o'clock he heard the most un
earthly sound in the big road in front j
of his house he had ever heard in all
hit life before and never expected to
hear just euoh a one again. He went to
the door,' looked out and saw some
thing going up and down the road. Ho
said he never saw such a thing before
and never expeoted to see auoh again,
file liM.ii' stood on end but he concluded
he had as well meet death in the big
road as to meet it in tho house. So he
picked up courage, went out to meet
his doom for what he know and Lot
and behold! when he got there what did
he find? He found his hofse had pawed
the middle plank off his stable door,
bad poked his head through the bole I
and bad raised it off the hinges and j
was walking up and down the road with
It on his neok, striking It with his feet |
at every itep.
Now Brother Bob If youoonolude this
beats your experience jutt pick your
flint and try it again.

AN OLD FAVORITE "
THE FISHER'S BOY
By Henry D. Thoreau
HENRY D. THOREAU, the "Hermit of WfMnn/1 In
foremost among American nature lovers, und hl?
works are lovingly quoted by those who Und "a picas
urc In the pathless wood*, a rapture on the lonely
shore." Ho was born at Concord. Mass., In 1S17 and
died there in 1S02. Although a graduate of Harvard,
lie disliked society and secluded himself. Thoreau was
no ardent abolitionist und suffered imprisonment for
refusing to pay taxes to a state that tolerated slav
ery. He was a frequent contributor to periodicals and
wrote a number of books.
Y life la like n stroll upon the beach,
As near the ocean's edge as I can go;
My tardy steps its waves sometimes o'erreaeh,
Sometimes I stay to let them ovcrllow.
My solo employment is, and scrupulous care,
To place my gain beyond the reach of tides?
Each smoother pebble, nnd each shell more rare,
Which Oceun kindly to my hand coiiudes.
I have but few companions on the shore:
They scorn the strand who sail upon the sea;
Yet oft I think the ocean they've sailed o'er
Is deeper known upon the strund to me.
The middle sen contains no crimson dulse,
Its deeper waves cast up no pearls to view;
Along the shore my hand is on its pulse,
And I couvcrse with many n shipwrecked crew.
