Tho Laurens Mill School Building is
now nearing completion. It is one of
the most tasteful school buildings in

Gross Hill, Feb. 8.?I believe it is
in order to suggest men to represent us
in tbe legislature. I have no sympathy
for this ory for farmers in preference
to men of other profession!. Nor do I
think it necessary that they come from
different sec tons of tbe county. Is he
capable? is he honest? should be the
test. Our professional men are all in
terested in farming; some of them own
large farms. This cry to discriminate
in favor of farmers is calculated to de
ter some of our best men from offering
for oflloe, and is calculated to encour
age gome to run who If elected would
be a disappointment to themselves and
to the people. I may suggest some
