historical society but no one seconed

This era of prosperity in Laurens
County should not pass without the
construction of some good roads. Some
day we shall have hard times again and

^Had this Tillman when Governor caused
the early violators of the law to be

as Governor he was not distinguished

The annual expenses of the city
government of New York are now
about as great as were the annual ex
penses of the government of the United
States when Mr. Hayes was president.
Of course the larger part of New
York's public money raised by taxation
is stolen by corrupt officials. The pco
pele of New York are able to endure
the terrific strain because they have
mastered the art of robbing the rest of
the country. When a man goes to
New York nowadays he expects to be

THE ANTI-COCAINE LAW PROSECUTIONS
The druggists in Columbia charged
with selling cocaine in violation of the
law should be vigously prosecuted and,
if they are guilty, they should not be
allowed to escape punishment, through
any technical defeat which may be re
sorted to for their defence. The legis
lature when it enacted the law recog
nized the dreadful evil o'f selling cocaine
to persons who do not need it for
medical purposes and the intent of the
law is fully understood by all pharma
cists. Attorney General Lyon long ago
gave it his opinion that the law forbade
the sale of the drug in all forms.
Generally the drug store man fully
knows when a customer wishes a
poisonous substance for legitimate
purposes and it is not likely that the
anti-cocaine law has been violated in
ignorance or in innocence.
LIEN LAW AGAIN.
Before the legislature meets in Jan
uary, it would be wise for farmers of
Laurens County who are opposed to the
lien law to write or to speak to mem
bers of the Senate and the house urging
them to vote in favor of the law's
repeal. That a bill to repeal the law
will most certainly be introduced and
we believe and hope that it will pass
but farmers everywhere should give
their representatives encouragement to
vote for it. Representative John Rich
ards of Kershaw endeavored to get
through a repeal at the last session and
almost succeeded. Since the adjourn
ment of the legislature Judge Brawley',
decision adverse to the labor contract
law has greatly strenghtend the argu
ment for repeal and, indeed, it is now
more than ever a necessity. Should
Mr.s Richard introduce his bill again it
should meet with little or no opposition
but in the meantime, it will be well for
employers of labor to inform the mem
bers of the legislature of their views
in regard to it.
This is an ailment for which Cham
berlain's Pain Balm has proven espec

other remedies for three weeks for a
bad lame back, I purchased a bottle of

THE LAURENS NEWSPAPERS.
Dr. Jacobs Pays High Pr* ? to Industry
and Literary Ability Displayed.
We have recently been much inter
ested by a survey of the contents of
the various county weekly papers that
come to this office and have been much
struck with the amount of editorial
matter that some of them contain.
Take the Laurensville Herald as an
instance. It is published in our own
county. We understand that Mr.
Grenekcr is its editor, or one of them,
and that he is responsible for the full
page of editorial that appears every
week under the head of local. 11 is
good reading too, for the editor evi
dently has a conception of what
makes good reading. Of course the
Laurersville Herald is not the only one.
The Advertiser published in the same
town deserves the same high ecomiums.
The review of the weekly papers that
we receive would show up well for the
versatility, the industry and literary
ability of the country editor. How
these papers are ever published for a
dollar a year and that on a necessarily
i.inull subscription and consequent small
advertising patronage is more than we
can conceive.? Our Monthly.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy One of the
Best on the Market.
For many years Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy has constantly gained in favor
and popularity until it is now one of
the most staple medicines in use and
has an enormous sale. It is intended
especially for acute throat and lung
diseases, such as coughs, colds and
croup, and can always be depended up
on. It is pleasant and safe to take and
is undoubtedly the best in the market
for ..he purposes for which it is intend

The Advertiser is one of the best
county weekly newspapers in this or
any other state. It will coat you only $1
a year. Each issue will cost you less
than a 2 cent postage stamp.
Cat Harper. The Mail Rider.
Tumbling Shoals, September 7.? We
arc sorry to lose our old star route
rider, Cal Harper. He has given us
faithful service on our mail route for
the last twenty years. He was as
regular as a clock. Rain or shine,
snow or beat wo looked for Cal to
drive up on the hour.
We will miss him in other ways be
sides mail matters. How will the
ladies get their eggs, butter and
chickens to market? And their needles,
pins and buttons from Laurens? The
men, too, wanted somtething every
day, from a piece of bacon up to a little
colic cure. Harper did a sight of ac
comoadation work on this line, besides
that for for which he was well remun
j erated. Good-by Cal, we wish you
I luck on your new job.

The Confederate Monument.
A meeting was held on salesday last
by the sons and daughters of Veterans,
in the interest of the Confederate
Monument that is soon to be erected on
the public square of our city, near the
Court house. It was decided that
committees be appointed to begin at
once raising funds for this purpose.
Mrs. Robert Bell was requested to ap
point these committees in each town
ship, to notify them and ask their co
This monument is to be a well de
served tribute of honor and esteem to
both the surviving Veterans of the
Civil war and to those who gave their
lives, in Hospitals and on battle fields
to our loved South-land. Almost every
family has representatives in this
noble band of heroes and we are assured
that all will esteem it, not only a duty
but a privilcdge to assist in this work.
Nearly all the counties in our and other
states, have already erected monuments
to our heroes: shall Laurens continue
behind? No we are certain it will not.

To continue young in health and
strength, do as Mrs. N? F. Rowan, Mc
Donough, Ga., did, She says: "Three
bottles of Electric Bitters cured me of
chronic liver and stomach trouble, com
plicated with such an unhealthy condi

LOSE ALL BY FIRE.
Former l.aurcns Citizen Sustain Hire
Losses in Columbia.
Fire last night at 10 o'clock destroyed
the residences of Ernest D. and W.
Capers Harrell, of 2-112 and 241G Laurel
street. The tire was in Waverly and,
although out of the city, Chief May, of
the fire department, lent a helping
hand, by having a steady stream of wa
ter turned on tho fire. Both houses
were worth about $2,500 and were in
sured tor $1,500. The origin of the
fire Is unknown.- Columbia Record,
Mr. W. E. Harrell, who resided in
Laurens for a number of years, occu
pied one of the dwellings that was
burned, and it is understood that he
lost all of his household furnishings, as
did tho other members of tho Harrell
family residing in the second house.

AS TO A NEW COURT HOUSE.
The arguments for a new Court
house do not appear convincing at this
time from the of view of the town.
Whatever the objections to the
present bulling in the matter of con
venience, it can't be contended,thnt it is
not handsome. One may inspect num
bers of new Court houses in South
Carolina towns and conclude that the
architecture of our building is perhaps
more pleasing than is that of any of
Tho removal of the Court house would
not improve the appearance of the
public square. The Court house should
be enclosed with an ornamental iron or
chain fence and the ground around the
building set in grass. This has been
urged by Thk Advertiser, for tne last
15 years and if it were done the Square
would be beautiful. Were the Court
house gone the Square would still be
ugly unless it were put in grass and
In our opinion a new site and building
worthy of th?? county could not be pro
vided for less than $50,000. or $75,000.
The site of the present Court House
could not be sold so as to realize any
considerable sum of money. Why
should the town buy it?
If the objection be to the present
county oflices, it might be expedient to
erect a building for public records, to
contain the oflices of the clerk and reg
ister of mesne conveyance, judge of
probate and treasurer and auditor, etc.
This could be done for perhaps $15,000.
Plenty of room in the present building
would remain for other offices.
Spartanburg built a new Court House
about 12 years ago. It cost $75,000 at
least but its court room is not as large
or as good as that in our Court House.
Seventy five thousand dollars would

August, 1007 at the home of her son-in

Co. S. C. Early in life she professed
Christ and united with the Warrior
Creek Baptist Church. She was more
than half century an earnest, consis
tant Christian, and made it tho "chief
end of her life to Gloryfy God"?Hav
ing so lived, Death had no terrors for
her. She met it as calmly as if making
any change in life saying?"It is all
right, I am perfectly resigned to the
will of God and am prepared for the
change"?"I don't care to live longcr

nature fell from her dear quivering lips

Mrs. Griffin was twice married. First
to Mr. Duff Gary who lingered with
his young bride only two short months
before sacrificing his life for his coun
try. A beautiful son from this mar
riage died at 7 years of age.
Her second marriage was to Maj.
Richard L. Griflin, a man of stearling
worth and deep piety. Together they
worked earnestly and well for the Mas
ter's cause. Maj, Griffin died many
years ago leaving her a widow with 4
sons and a daughter whom she succeed
ed in rearing in the fear and admoni
tion of the Lord.
Her sons are, Mr. John King Griffin
of Tonn. Mr. Thomas Jones Griffin of

devoted step-daughter, Mrs. John T.
Robertson to whom she had taken the
place of "Mother" since she was seven
years of age, and who joins her broth

death of this consecrated woman. Of
her it can he truly said,
