THE NEW ORLEANS
Annual Meeting of the Southern Cotton
Association Was Held Last Week in
the Crescent City.
With a large attendance of delegates
and representatives from all the cotton
growing States the Southern Cotton
Association was in annual session in
New Orleans three days of last week,
adjourning without date Saturday af
Before final adjournment President
Harvie Jordan congratulated the Con
vention on the successful manner in
which it had prepared its work.
Mr. Jordan was reelectcd president
and Mr. Cheatham, secretary of the
Southern Cotton Association.
The Cotton Warehouse system
already inaugurated is to receieve more
attention this year, with the view of
extending and perfecting the plan.
Chairman Hancock rcported for the
finance committee. It provided for
dues of 10 'cents per bale, allowing 20
per cent, to the national fund, 30 per
cent to the State fund and the remain
der to the county fund. The executive
committee was requested to employ
Hon. E. D. Smith as national organ
izer to more completely organize the
various States, his salary to be fixed
by the committee. The report was
W. P. Shinault of Mississippi, chair
man of the committee on acreage re
duction, reported favoring the reduc
tion of acreage 25 per cent, from that
planted in 1904. As there were planted
32,000,000 acres of cotton in 1904, this
would mean that the Southern Cotton
Association is in favor of planting but
24,000,000 acres of cotton, this year.
The report was unanimously adopted.
A resolution by John D. Walker was
adopted that all uidders of spot cotton
be requested by the Southern Cotton
Association to sign a binding pledge to
sell their cotton at 15 cents a pound if
through the efforts of the association it
reaches that price.

FOR A CALHOUN STATUE.
Efforts Being Made for This Purpose by
King's Mountain Chapter, D. A. R.
To The Editor of The Advertiser:
We, the undersigned, representing the
King's Mountain Chapter, D. A. R.,
Yorkville, S. C, wish to call your at
tention, and that of your readers to a
work which we have inaugurated, and
in which we beg your cordial help and
It has long been a source of regret
and mortification that South Carolina
has no representative in the National
Statuary Hall of the Capitol at Wash
ington. "This statuary room was the
old Hall of Representatives; it was the
scene of the debates of Webster and
Clay, Adams, Calhoun and others,
whose names are indelibly associated
with the history of Congress. In 18G4,
at the suggestion of Senator Morrill, of
Vermont, the room was set apart as a
National Statuary Hall, to which each
State might send the effigies of two of
her chosen sons, in marble or bronze, to
be placed permanently here.
No South Carolinian ever views those
stately statues, erected by practically
all the Stales of the Union in memory
of their "chosen sons," without won
dering why our own place has been so
long empty, and wishing that we, too,
could point with pride to a representa
tive occupying the apace allotted to
The King's Mountain Chapter is de
sirous of stavtihg a movement to rem
edy this long standing neglect. We
have written to every woman's organ
ization in the State, asking them to
join us in petitioning the Legislature to
appropriate at the present session, the
sum of $25,000 (twenty-five thousand
dollars,) for the purpose of erecting a
statue of John C. Calhoun in the Na
tional Statuary Hall in the Capitol at
Washington. We regard Calhoun as
South Carolina's most representative
man; he was for forty years the most
conspicuous and influential figure in
national politics; he was Representa
tive, Senator, Secretary of War, Sec
retary of State and Vice President.
Wi do hope that you will give us
your support and help in this work.
We wish, throughyour paper, to "appeal
to every South Carolinian, man and
woman, to honor this draft upon your
patriotism, and to beg them to respond
to the effort we are making to nave
our beloved State take her rightful
place in the halls of the nation.
We shall be exceedingly obliged if
you will give this letter a place in the
columns of your paper.
Very respectfully yours,
Mrs. Virginia Mason Bratton,
Miss Maggie A. Gist,
Miss Leslie D. Witherspoon,
Mrs. S. M. McNcel,
Mrs. G. H. O'Leary,

LETTER TO ADVERTISER'S READERS.
Laurens Drug Co. Guarantees Hyomci to
Cure Catarrh or it Costs Nothing.
Editor of The ADVERTISER: In view
of the prevalence of catarrhal troubles
at this season of the year, we want to
tell your readers that we have never
sold anything that gave more satisfac
tion than Hyomci, when used in
?atarrhal troubles. You get immediate
relief from the treatment, and consis
tent use will prove to every sufferer, as
it has to many of our customers, the vir
tue of this preparation.
Personally we are interested in Hyo
mci, for it is made and sold on honor,
and we do not want your money unless
you are benefitted and satisfied.
There is no stomach dosing in con
nection with Hyomei. It is a thor
oughly local disease, and its soothing,
healing medication goes direct to the
spot where it is needed.
The complete Hyomei outfit consists
?of a pocket inhaler, a medicine dropper,
.and a bottle of Hyomei, and the price is
?uiily $1, while additional bottles can be
obtained for 50 cents.
We positively guarantee a cure when
Hyomei is used in accordance with di
rections, or we will refund your money.
This certainly shows our faith and be
lief in the virtues of Hyomei.
Yqurs very truly,
Laurens Drug Co.
NOT HE APPOINTED.
Ernest F. Cochran of Anderson is Nomi
nated by the President as Mr. Ca*
Washington, Jan. 18?The president
to-day sent to the senate the nomina
tion of Ernest P. Cochran, of Anderson
to be United States attorney for South
Carolina, thereby displacing John G.
Capers, against whom charges were
filed before the department of justice.
The matter will create a sensation in
South Carolina. The charges were in
vestigated by Attorney General Moody,
who decided it would be better not to
recommend Capers' reappointment.
The attorney general had his atten
tion called to the conduct of some cases
in South Carolina and came to the con
clusion that their management was open
Mr. Cochran was not a candidate for
United States attorney. He was at one
time assistant attorney under Capers,
but resigned some time ago. His ap
pointment to succeed Capers will make
him likely a candidate for United States
judge of the new district.
It has not been decided who will suc
ceed Capers as patronage dispenser in
South Carolina. Cochran is not inclined
to want to attend to thnt work.
Congressman Wyatt Aiken of the
Third district says he is responsible for
the investigation of Mr. Capers' con
duct and his consequent displacement
for the reason that he did not think Mr.
Capers a proper man for the position.

TWO SPARTANBURG EDITORS.
The Herald and The Journal Engage
Spartanburg, Jan. 17.?It is an inter
esting coincidence that Spartanburg's
two dailies have new editors, each en
tering on his new duties yesterday.
Mr. C. O. Hearon, of Bristol, Tenn-Va.,
formerly managing editor of the Bris
tol Herald, has assumed charge of the
Spartanburg Herald as editor. He suc
ceeds Mr. H. L. Watson, who recently
resigned. He is cordially welcomed to
this city. Mr. II. L. Watson, who has
been editor of the Herald since April,
has returned to Greenwood to look af
ter business interests, which demand
his time and attention.
Mr. J. G. Garlington, former editor
of the Spartanburg Hci'ald, was yester
day engaged as chief editorial writer on
the Spartanburg Journal and began his
new work yesterday. He is a capable
and gifted newspaper man and is popu
lar throughout the city. He has had
years of active experience in newspa
per work and is well rounded in the
work. He is cordially greeted on all
sides on his return to the city, where
he has lived for 13 years in the past.
Ho was the first editor of the Herald.
In addition to securing Mr. Garlington's
services The Journal has made other
improvements of an important nature,
increasing the size of the paper to a
seven-column, eight-page sheet of at
tractive neatnesss and interest.
Protect Your Cotton Bales.
Orte of the very best results of the
Southern Cotton Association is the en
couragement of the farmer to patronize
cotton warehouses. The farmer should
not leave his cotton without shelter.
The deterioration in cotton which is left
exposed to the weather is much greater
than has been supposed. This loss
must of necessity fall on the farmer.
When the farmer holds his cotton back
in order to get a hotter average price,
it becomes very important to have it
well housed. The cost of warehousing
is cheap as compared with the loss by
rotting or weakening when exposed for
a long time to the weather. Greenville

Peden, a real estate dealer of Green
ville, S. C, is in jail in this city charged
with contempt of court in violating an
injunction of the chancery court issued
against him several days ago in a bill
filed against him by the Brookside mills
of this city seeking to restrain him
from further attempts in enticing the
employes of the mill to Columbia; S.
C, and other mills in that State. It
was claimed that he represented the
Clinton cotton mills. He denies having
violated the injunction though adding
that he had already shipped a number
of mill families from this city and ex
pects to ship others next Monday. He
claims that he has boon falsely impri
soned and has retained counsel to bring
suit for damages. He has carded this
city with posters asking for mill help,
offering better wages and belter living
quarters and cheaper house rents. He
claims that the white mill people do
not live so well as the South Carolina
negroes. The scarcity of mill labor in
South Carolina, he says, is due to the
fact that hundreds of the employes
have gone to raising cotton because of
the high price of that staple.

our dearly beloved sister in Christ, Mrs.
W. N. Austin, by one of the attendant
ministers at her funeral.
Though a faithful member of the
Presbyterian church, she was a zealous
worker in the Chcsnut Ridge Baptist
church of which her husband is a mem

and girls who will ever hold in sacred
memory her words of instruction.
One of the first principles of Christi
anity was beautifully illustrated in her
character, that of self-denial. Her life
indeed was very Christ-like;going about
so gently, quietly, speaking words of
kindness, good cheer and encourage
ment. Scattering .sunshine, doing deeds
of love and mercy to all seemed to be
her mission on earth. Being specially
fond of children, she naturally drew
them to her. Her face would brighten
whenever a child appeared, and happy
were the children who came under tier
wondrous influence. Not only the child
ren, but everyone fortunate enough to
know her, could not but feel the desire
of leading a higher, nobler, better life;
for it was an inspiration to look Into
her peaceful face, which glowed with
that divine love, with which her heart

WORK WEAKENS THE KIDNEYS.
Donn's Kidney Pills Have Done Great
Service for People Who Work
Most'Laurens people work every day
in some strained, unnatural position ?
bending constantly over a desk?riding
on jolting wagons or cars?doing labori
ous housework; lifting, reaching or pull
ing, or trying the back in a hundred and
one other ways. All these strains tend
to wear, weaken and injure the kidneys
until they fall behind in their work of
filtering the poisons from the blood.
Doan's Kidney Pills cure sick kidneys,
put new strength in bad backs. Lau
rens cures prove it.
J. II. Odcll, of Factory Hill, Hill
Mill hand, says: "I have been suffer
ing from backache for a long while.
At times I could not work on account]
of the aching across the small of my ]
back and the dull pain gave me no rest
day or night. 1 could not stand straight
and if I sat for a bit and attempted to
arise I had to catch hold of something
to pull myself up. The secretions from
the kidneys were very red, full of sedi
ment and got like a jelly after they
stood for a while. I could not retain
them any length of time and had to
rise often at night. I tried several
highly recommended remedies and used
liniments, but nothing did me any good
until I got a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills at the Palmetto Drug Co. and
used them according to directions.
They gave relief almost at once and
since using them the kidney secretions
have gotten clear and natural and I do
not have to get up at nights as I used
to, while the backache has all left me."
