MILL BURNS DOWN
A Instructive Sunday
Mill Was Well Equipped and Loss Falls
Heavily on Herbert Martin,
The Laurens Roller Mill was totally
destroyed by fire between three and
four o'clock Sunday morning. When
discovered the mill was in flames,
the stable and buggy shed had caught
on Are and it was with difficulty that
Nelson Wright, the old negro, who
lives nearby, reached the stable and let
the horse out. The buggy, harness,
etc., were lost. The mill was a com
plete loss, together with a considerable
stock of grain, flour, meal and feed
products. The fire is supposed to have
originated in the engine room.
The mill waa built and equipped
seven years ago by Messrs. J. S.
Machen and Herbert R. Martin at
a cost of about $5,000. It was
a well equipped plant and was no
doubt quite a profitable enterprise.?
About a year ago Mr. Martin bought
Mr. Machen's interest and continued
the business alone.
Mr. Martin had $1,400 insurance on
the mill with the Carolina Mutual In
surance Company of Spartanburg, Jas.
A. Austin's agency, this city.

and he brought them on to Laurens and
lodged them with the city authorities.

ajready abroad in the land. Score cards,
exquisitely decorated by hand with frol
icsome elves, witches' heads, and spirts

found their places at the tables for a
game of "Nations". The parlors were

dainty sweets. After the refreshments
were served maids and matrons were
alike requested to investigate the
secrets of the future by cracking golden
walnuts. Dame fortune evidently was
in good humor with tins particular
coterie for much merriment followed
the cracking of the mysterious nuts
though some of the guests refused to
divulge the secrets of the fates.
Among those, present on this delight
ful occasion were Misses Willie Jones,
Mary Boyd, Josephine Minter, Emily
Meng, Rosalie Burton, Bessie Todd,
Mesdames P. A. Simpson, C. C. Feath

An Experienced Showman.
The many years devoted exclusively
to the show business by Mr. Van Am
burg placed him at the very head of
show managers in the country. Having
accumulated a fortune in the show
business while yet a young man, he
saw it swept from him in the great
Chicago fire With the assistance of
friends who knew his ability and in
tegrity, he had his show on the road
again the next season, larger and bet
ter than ever, and today has the best
tented show traveling. Many remem
ber in years past visiting the Great
Amburg Show, and that they always
had the satisfaction of knowing they
got the worth of their money. After
years of successful show business, it is
his aim in life to sustain his well-earned
reputation by giving the public an
amusement of which he is justly proud.
This show will give two performances
in Laurens on Friday, November 10th,
one at 2 o'clock in the afternoon
and the other at 8 o'clock in the
evening. The free out door exhibi
tions given at the show grounds imme
diately after the grand free street pa
rade, are worth going miles to see.

Meanest Man in Town.
"I've heard a lot of talk about the
meanest man in town," said an elder
of a prominent West Philadelphia
Church, according to the Philadelphia
Record, yesterday, "but last Sunday
was reserved for me to meet him. It
was rather funny, too," he continued,
"for I think it was really a mistake,
rather than studied parsimony of the
Rockefeller type. It was while I was
just beginning to take up the collection
that a man hurried in the door, and
dropping into a near pew, began to
mop his forehead. He put a nickel on
the plate when I passed it to him, and
contined his efforts to cool off. 1 had
gotten to the rear of the church and
began to count the collection, when I
heard an audible gasp and hurry back
to where I was standing. Before I
realized what he intended to do, he
took a nickel from the plate and started
for the door. I followed him outside,
and, checking him, said: "What's the
trouble, brother? Is anything wrong?'
'Not much,' he called back, as he went
down the path on a run; only I hadn't
finished shaving when my wife started
for church, and in my hurry to catch
up with her I got into the wrong
church.'' ? Exchange.

AMICABLE SETTLEMENT SOUGHT.
Millikcas Would Not Accept Lucas'
"(Jive or Take" Offer.
A dispatch from Charleston to tho
Greenville News Monday night says:
The effort recently mado by the Lu
cas element of Laurens Cotton Mill
stockholders to bring about an amicable
settlement of the controversy with the
Miliikens by a "give and take offer"
has failed. The Lucas crowd offered to
buy the Millikcn stock and all other
stock offering at $170 a share, or if
they were unwilling to sell, to sell the
stock of the Lucas crowd at the same
figures. Tho Miliikens would name no
selling figure, their position being that
they do not care to sell at all,but the in
formation was received that they might
buy at 160 a share. This the Lucas
people declined and again asked that
the Miliikens name a selling figure.
Finally another intimation came that
tho Miliikens might be induced to pay
$165, but this was promptly declined by
Lucas, who again asked that they
name a price, intimating that $170 was
not necessarily the highest price he
was willing to pay. The Miliikens have
not made any positive offer. The nego
tiations were conducted by the Lucas
people with John B. Cleveland of Spar
tanburg, who is friendly to the Milii
kens, but who throughout the contro
versy has sincerely desired and advised
an amicable adjustment. Judge Pritch
ard has granted art order permitting
Lucas to appeal from the order enjoin

State courts, also an order striking out

A Visit To Alkalithia Springs, N. C.
Mr. Editor:?I have just returned
from a most delightful visit to Alka
lithia Springs, N. C, and I must say
this is an ideal place for the weary and
overworked to find rest and renew their
strength and vigor.
The water is as line as can be found
in all the land, and some day it will
take its place beside the most famous
springs of the south. If it is not the
fabled fountain of immortal youth it is
next thing to it. The hotel, new, com
modious, well equipped, well kept,
stands at the top of an eminence rising
by gradual ascent from the spring some
two hundred yards away surrounded by
a lawn carpeted with the greenest of
grass and shaded by stately trees.
From its broad verandas you look out
upon an endless variety of scenic beau
ty. Here at your feet goes on forever
through valleys of living green the bab
bling brook. Just beyond are the bills
rising in succession terraces one above
the other as if vicing with one another
in perpetual rivalry as to which should
excel in beauty and greatness. And
above and beyond them all the sober
mountains stand up against the sky,
grand and beautiful in their varied
lights and shadows as they become
cloud-capped or sun-crowned breathing
upon the mind and heart of the behold
er the spirit of peace and restfulness.
Oh you men who are so busy with the
things of life that annoy and distress
and harden and wear the life away,
stop for awhile. Hie you to the moun
tains of North Carolina and rest. Go
and catch a new inspiration to live bet
ter and be better.
Last but not least Mr. J. W. Cope
land, Sr. who went to the regret of us
all from our town, is the genial, hospita
ble proprietor of this ideal resort. His
thoughtful care for his guests and his
boundless recources for making things
comfortable and pleasant for those
about him is a first class guarantee to
all who sojourn with him a food and
profitable time. May the best success
