Why should the Money of the town
be spuet in "driblets?"
When the town is able to afford sow
age, it will have sewage.
Bear in mind that iu voting for sew
age you are voting for what you uro
not likely to get.
Bear In mind in voting yuur money
for sewerage you "re voting for what
you are not likely to got. The sower
age can only bo provided for a few with
a Utile matter of $30,000.
Muoh more than will be available by
the proposed bond issue will be re
quired to proyido sewage even for the
densely populated seotlons of Lau
rens. To conneot the "Kloh Hill" lo
cality north of the public Fquare with
the in airs on the South Sido would ne
cessitate dcop and expensive excava
tion. It wo*uld cost thousands. What
would be the utility of ? eowage system,
so far as tho health is Involved, If a'
least ibis and the 'Possum Hollow"
neighborhood, within 250 yards of the
squaro, wore not included?
This town has incorporated area big
enough for a city of 50,000. It would
be an admirable thing to Install sew
erage throughout Hunter or Sullivan
township but It would cost too much.
There is as much difference, practl
oally, in density of population between
the towns of Columbia and Laurens as
thoro Is between the town of Laurens
and Sullivan township. It is only
within the last four or live years that
Columbia has had sewerage. Charles
ton, little if any larger in area than
Laurens but with 00,000 people, even
now has not a complete sewerage sys
tem. In Greenville thero is some sow
erago on some streets and none on oth
ers. In Greenville, the maa who lives
in a co tage, and is not well to-do,
must get Along without sewerago and
does get along without It.
Sewerago In Laurens would be a
great convenience to?those who would
A monstrous battle has been in pro
grersat Manassas and Thoroughfare,
Va., duriDg last week. Thirty thou
sand men have been divided Into the
Hluesky and the Brownoky armies
and according to the press dispatches
they have been shooting and oapturing
each other In a perfectly innocent,
harmless and hurt less way at a prodig
ious rate, the object being to teach the
American militia the artless art of war
and show off what Teddy Roosevelt
calls his "big stick."
In the first attack Field Marshal
Grantsky failed to break the linos of
Gen. Bellsky, who commanded tho
Blue8kys. On the second night Gen.
Corbinsky attended a banquet and on
tho following morning he awoke at
10 o'clock with the impression that be
had captured all the Brownskys in his
mouth and had the Blueskys impri
soned in bis beadsky.
It is eald that tho casualties on both
sides were terrific and that 800 of tho
Brownskys fell at the first voll?v nt
luf S X.
Ib is hinted that the first and second
South Carolina regiments were in
oharge of the ammunition trainr which
included some 14.000 kegs and moro
bottles of explosives of a liquid charac
When Gen. Bellsky was surprised
and surrounded in his bedsky the en
emy appropriated the bed but released
Bellsky on parole.
At one timo there was a general
stampede of two brigades which only
stopped running when they reached
Washington, but there Gen. Blissky
easily rallied them at O'Flaherty's
congro?sional saloon In Pennsylvania
While the Browusky army was on
gaged in a moonlight assault on the
Bltieskys three regiments of Connecti
cut and Ohio nlgskies became detached
from the column and were captured to
a man. It is stated that at the point
where the capture was elTeced a|
farmer reported to Gen. Corblosky
next morning the mysterious disap
pearance of two dominecker roosters
and a hen. It was also reported that
certain Southern regiments at this
timo *liad refused to salute a taddle
colored Connecticut colonol, but tho
story was denied. It is conjoctured
that with the roo?tors in view there
was no time for salutes; hence the
story was false on its face.
A most regrettable disaster occurred
at the duohoss of Danderwilt's ball. It
appears that a Georgia lieutenant who
was carrying bis logs in a sllnar from
the effects of a 13 bottle projectile of
Scotch highballs stumbled en the duch
ess's military train whloh becamo de
railed. The train was recovered in sec
tions and its fragments In the form of
"Bilk and satin distributed as mcmon
toes of the catastrophe. The young of
ficer was of course court martialcd
and condemned to be shot. The sen
tenoe had been partially carried out
when laH beard from, for the oftl'o>r
was fully half ( hot.
At tho close of the fighting o?uounell
of war met aud General BeUvky took
the chair and a decanter oad Genend
Granlskl loon two obaJra. and two
decanters. General CorbansJcl r. -
remarked that while 30,000
r men had participated >n the rr.anoevres
bo had never been able ?o see less than
00,000 at one time. Umpire Wagner
ski arose and moved that the late Gen
eral W. T. Sherman was a fool when
he said that "war was hollskl;" for
that it was not even basobullski. The
motion wes enthusiastically passed with
the decanters included a* amendments.
A motion to adjourn followed and the
decanters were again offered as amend
ments. The amendments passed but
