Facts About The
Great Majestic Range,
It is the only range in the world made of Malleable and
It has, beyond any question of a doubt, the largest and
It uses about half the fuel used on other ranges, and
does better work by far.
The Majestic All Copper Nickeled Reservoir heats the
water quicker and hotter than any other. It is the only
reservoir with a removable frame.
The Charcoal Iron Body of the Great Majestic Range
lasts three times as long as a steel body.
Being made of non-breakable material, there is practi
cally no expense for repairing the Majestic.
As for baking, it is perfection, not only for a few months,
but for all times to come.
A GREAT MAJESTIC RANGE lasts three times as long
as a cheap range, but it don't cost three times as much.
PROOF -We don't ask you to take our word for any of the
above statements, but if you will call at our store, a man from
the factory, where Majestic ranges are made, will prove to your
satisfaction, that these are absolute facts, and will show you
many more reasons why the Great Majestic Range is absolutely
the best that money can buy.
LA H?H CONTRACT
Air. Fentherstone, at Request of Many
Farmers, Goes Into Details of his
Proposed Contract Regulation.
Under recent date the local corre
spondent of The News and Courier sent
that paper the following letter and
interview which we reproduce:
The interview with Mr. C. C. Foath
crstone, published in The News and Cou
rier some weeks ago, has caused much
discussion among the people of this
community and the ideas advanced have
not been fully comprehended in some
instances. Acting upon these sug
gestions The News and Courier cor
respondent called upon Mr. Feather
stone at his office and asked that he of
fer the people some definito suggestions
as to the remedies he proposes. In this
connection Mr. Feathcrstonc says:
"Since giving you the interview re
lating to the labor contract law I have
received a great many messages from
farmers, in different sections, assuring
me that they think that my suggestions
were along the right line, but asking
that I go somewhat into detail as to
the remedy suggested in my former
"It will be remembered that I sug
gested that the remedy was to punish
the men who employ the laborers vio
lating their contracts, and the men who
induce laborers to violate their con
tract, and thus force laborers to remain
in the e lploymcnt of those with whom
they h /c contracted.
"If uch a plan is practical and legal
it meets the whole situation?for the
laborer must have employment, and if
tie knows that he cannot get it, after
violating his contract, the inducement
for him to violate is gone.
"In the great majority of cases la
borers are induced to violate their con
tracts by direct or indirect pursuasion
on the part of others, or by a knowl
edge of the fact that they will have no
difficulty, after leaving one man, to get
employment with another. If they
were let alone, or if the-) knew that
they could not get employment else
where, the majority of them would
"Punish the man who interferes or
who employs them after the violation
and you strike at the root of the diffi
'Our criminal statute already pro
vides punishment for the man who en
tices a laborer from the employment
of another, or who harbors one after
notice that he has violated his contract
The t rouble is to prove that he had
notice of the first contract. The viola
tor of the contract is not going to notify
him, and the man who is mean enough
to deprive his neighbor of the laborer,
is not apt to admit, knowledge.
"The difficulty, therefore, jn the en
forcement of this statute, has always
been the inability to prove notice,
"How can this difficulty be removed?
In my judgment it can be dono very
"Require all contracts betv/een land
lord and loborer to be in writing, Then
require all those who want to be pro
tected to index their contracts in the
oflice of the Clerk of Court. Make the
indexing of such contracts conclusive
notice to the public, so that if A em
ploys a laborer, after B has indexed his
contract with said laborer, and fails to
release him, upon demand, then make
A liable both civilly and criminally.
"And not only make him liable, but
fix a minimum amount of damages for
which he is liable, say not less than
Five Hundred Dollars. And on the
criminal side of the court, make the
penalty a heavy one, and lot it be im
prisonment and not a fine.
"One great trouble about the en
forcment of most laws is that men can
get off by the payment of a line. The
average man cares little about paying
a fine. If the offenders were sent to
the chain gang, violations of law would
decrease, and that too at a rapid rate.
"The law that I have suggested can
be passed and, in my judgment, will
stand the test of the courts.
"It may cost the landlord na little
something to index their contracts, but
the expenses will be little compared
with the good results to be derived

The Lahor Problem.
We reproduc in this issue of The
Advertiser nn interview of Mr. c. c.
Peatherstone in the News and Courier.
We will not discuss it further than to
say that to us it appears sound. We
wish other sound thinking men in
I.aureus would write something for
The Advertiser on this, or any other
subject. Tino Advertiser is not going
to undertake to solve the labor question
but we have some ideas nevertheless.
Wo believe that the Southern white
man is largely responsible for the labor
conditions of the South not as an indi
vidual but as a class.
Recently we have observed different
"squads" of hands at work under
what we supposed to be competent
"bosses." In every instance we have
observed some of the hands to turn olf
a Rood deal less work than others.
They seem to be experts only in the
ai t of "beating time." Yet the same
price is paid for all. This rather en
Courages the best hands to become
sorry as the sorry man's earning ca
pacity is as great as his own. Every
employer of labor should have a scale
of wages and the good hands should
get the highest prices.
Then again a higher scale of living
should bo encouraged among the
negroes. So long as they are satisfied
with a mere exhistanee and wages are
high, they will not put In full time.
They should be educated up to living
better and more respectably and that
would require more money and more
A great many negroes from the South
go North and engage in service. In
almost all instances they receive
higher wages than are paid here but
the service required of them there is
much better than is required here. It
is only the most competent class that
remain away, those that can and are
willing to make good; just the class wo
should encourage to remain here. The
incompetent find their way back soonor
or later because thev soon learn that
living is easiest in the South.
Taking into consideration the service
rendered the Southern whites pay more
on the average than is paid any where
else in the world.

Rounded up Gamblers.
Saturday afternoon Special Constable

with the aid of two assistants, rounded
up a bunch of negro gamblers just be

party made their escape but seven were
marched to the sheriff's office, and
later to Magistrate Hudgen's cham

are old offenders, pleaded guilty and
were promptly fined $20 each. The
