Detail? of the Death of J. L. Pitla~
His Father Hart Walle HaadHag
Poplar Sprikos, March 9.?This
community was shocked on hearing of
the death ot Mr . J. I. Pit's, residing
in the Friendship section, which oc
curred Saturday near his home. It
seems that Mr. Pitts had ho-m to Lau
ren? that day, and on, returnirg bad
gone to the flold where bis hands were
at;work,'cleaning oft' a field. On reaoh
leg the place he f und thtt they had
set a tree on fire and were working
nearby. He protested that thero was
danger of the tree falling and to get
farther away. In the meantime, Mr.
Pitts himself, walked as be thought,
out of danger of the tree and at
that moment the tree broke off, strik
ing Mr. Pitts on the head, crushing it
in a horrible manner. He expired al
most instantly. Mr Pit's was an en
ergetic and industrious man, useful to
his community In whioh be lived, as
was evidenced by the long cortege that
followed the body to the Friendship
cemetery, where it was interred with
honors by Myrtle Lodge, W. O. W., of
whioh he was an active adherent.
Religious services were also held
over the body, conducted by Rev. Hay
Anderson of Laurens. The deceased
was about S3 years old and is survived
by a sorrowing wife and four small
children, who have the sympathy of a
large circle1 of relatives and friends.
Mr. W. H. Pitts, father of the de
ceased, living in this seitlon, whi'e at
work last week with an axe inflicted a
severe cut on his forehead. Just as he
was making a blow with the tool, It be
came entangled in a wire or vine be
hind him. The axe coming over on
his head dealt him a terrible gash. The
wound is painful, but not regarded as
Murphy, a small son of Mr. W. E.
Pitts, after extracting the shot from a
loaded shell, was handling it carelessly
with fire and it exploded, burning his
face painfully. It Is not thought that
his eyes are hurt.
A snail ohild of Mr. and Mrs. Will
Bolt, living near Rib in Church, also
met with a misfortune last week by
falling in the fire and sustaining some
painful burns. It is hoped thtt the
child is not burned seriously.
It Is a strange co incidence that all of
these misfortunes occurred practically
In tho same community, the same week
and ail in tho same family connection.
PLEASED WITH PLORODORA.
Dr. F. M. Setaler Writes of His Ex
perience With It.
Editob, The Advertiser, Sir: Ac
cording to promise made sometime ago
that if I did not give my experience
with Florodora cotton personally, I
would do so through the mail:
I prepared land as ordinarily for
common kind of cotton, using about 300
lbs. of fertilizers to the acre, consist
ing of 200 lbs. DK Bone, 100 lbs. C. S.
meal and 103 Kalnlt. Planted seed by
dropping in drill about 2 feet apart
..bout the last ot May. It was a long
time coming up, in fact never got a
?'ood stand. I cultivated as usual with
the ordinary kind, except that I only
^ave one hoeing and left all that
amo up, from 1 to 5 stalks in thi hill.
planted the seed you sent me on
>bout two acres of good ordinary land
-Ith less expense in making than any
otton crop I ever male, I gathered H
?les of cotton and if I could have got
good season the latter part of August
/ouid have made two good heavy
ales. I have the cotton on hand for
..io and making enquiry where I can
it 3 or 4 cents more per pound than
">mmon staple Also I have what I call
ut Pomaria cotton, long limb, but not
much as Florodora, a mixed limby
nl cluster cotton that I am well pl? a?ed
? th nnd which made 11 bales of cotton
. same soil, hut poorer land. The
orodora cotton seed was mixed slight
as I thought, for I found occasional'y
.luster stalk and sometimes a stalk
Ith small black seed with scarcely
<y lint on them. But I am greatly
ased with It anl herewith return
j my sincere thanks for your kind
is in sending me the seed. My seed
??? not for sale, even if I should not
nt them this year, because I think it
> Mr. Stoney that if parties wanting
i should buy from him.
forgot to say that one bale of Floro
one-half Pomaria was ginned on
ist improved gin run by electricity
ihe Glonn-Lowery Manufacturing
Company at Whitmlre and the other
Pomaria bale was ginned by Mr. W. J.
Duffle on a 60 or 70 saw gin making half
revolutions according to Mr. Stoney.
Now, Mr. Elltor, I will close by say
ing please excuse this hurriedly and
badly written communication and make
the best you can out of it, an I had to
answer already two communications in
reference to my experience with Floro
dora cotton, etc, one from Vienna Oil
Co., Georgia and one from Caldwoll,
Ward & Co., Montgomery, Alabama. I
hope to get to Laurens next week and
will call In to see you.

Dwelling* In Which Ladder* Took

Years ago a story was told of a naval
officer who wanted a house built to
lUcasc his own taste In every detail.
He drew the plans himself, placed them
in the hands of a builder and instructed
htm to see that they were carried out in
every detail. Then he went to sea for
a year's cruise. When he returned
home the house had been completed
With the utmost regard for the plans
and specifications left by the officer.
He was taken through the first floor
and* expressed the utmost pleasure in
everything he saw.
"Now," he said, "we will go upstairs
and see the second floor."
"Come right out this way wlyre wc
have a ladder," replied the builder.
The seafaring man was astonished.
He had planned the house with the
greatest care, but forgot to provide for
The story of the naval officer has
never had a certificate of genuineness
attached to It, but an actual case In
which a house has been built without
a stairway Is on record In Washington.
It finally became the home of the late
John Boyle, who was for many years
chief clerk of the navy department and
who died In 1854, leaving a large es
tate. The house in question stood on
the site now occupied by a brewery be
low the naval observatory. It was a
pretentious old mansion, located in
what was a very stylish section during
the days of the elder John Boyle, who
came to this country in the early years
of the nineteenth century. The record
Is not clear as to why the house was
constructed without a staircase, but
there is no doubt about tho fact,?

HOW IS~THE COTTON MARKET ?
Throughout commercial circles for several months past this I
has been an oft repeated question.
There are those who are specially interested in the price of
spot cotton ; others in the manufactured goods, and it is to the
latter class that we attempt to make reply.
There is a marked advance on certain standard makes in
heavy Domestics, but the prices have not advauced in proportion
to the figures paid for the raw material.
Beside the light-weight wool goods just received, we open
choice lines in White and Colored Cotton Fabrics, WHITE MER
CERIZED WAIvSTINGS in exclusive designs, dainty colorings
in various weaves in printed IyAWNS.
On last September we bought our WHITE INDIA LINONS.
These we offer far below present market value. The new lines of
Hamburg, Lawn and Swiss Edgings
must be seen to be appreciated. They are all open for this week.
If you are not ready to purchase, come and inspect them for
future consideration. Very respectfully,

Is the lightest water on the market. We realize that this is claiming a groat
doal, and we could not afford to make this assertion unless we knew that we
could prove it to bo true. But it does not take an export to tost the softness of
a Mineral Water. When carbonatlng a mineral water, If it Is a hard water the
gases will not bo absorbed in the wator, and when tho bottle is opened, tho gas
es eaoape, and the water is left Hat. and hard, while if it is a soft wator, like
White Stone Lithia, it will retain its gases for hours after being unstopped.
Read what some prominent persons you know havo to say of tho merits of
the White Stone Lithia Wator:

White Stone Spring, 3. C.
Dear Sir?I do unhesitatingly stato
that the efficacy of White Stone Lithia
Water, not from Its splendid analytical
analysis, but from my own personal ob
servation, is a very valuable agent in
eliminating the impurities of the blood
through its marked diuretic effects,
and In so doing rostoros the secretory
and- excretory organs of tho body to
their normal physiological stato. So In
this proves its properties to be of great
value in assisting digestion, assimila
tion and inoroasmg the appetite. There
fore wo can recognize it as a mineral
water of powerful tonic properties and
should bo highly recommonuod in stom
ach and liver disorders, blood disturb
ances, rheumatism, gout, diabetes,
Bright's disease, and In all inactive
conditions of the kidneys and convalos
I feel myself, that I am justly due an
acknowledgement of tho happy offects
I derived from its use.

Head what Dr. L. J. Blake, Presi
dent Board of Health of the City of
Spartanbug, has to say of the merits of
White Stone Lithia Springs:
Spartanburg, May 11th, 1903.
J. T. Harris, Proprietor White Stone
Spingu, Spartanburg Co, S. O.
My Dear Sir:?I have used and pre
scribed the White Stone Lithia water
a great deal during the past two years.
In all cases requiring renal stimulation
I have obtained uniformly good re
sults. In lithaemla and kindred affec
tions from uric acid diathesis it meets
the indications, and I am sure its free
use will prove It the equal of any wa
ter on the market.
Yours very truly,
