REV. DR. ADAMS
TO BE PRESIDENT
Goes to the llead of the
College at Clinton.
ASSUMES DUTY NOV. I.
Pastor of Pirst Presbyterian Church for
Twelve Years. Pastoral Relations
to be Dissolved by Presbytery.
Itev. Robert Adams, D. D., pastor of
tho First Presbyterian church, this city,
since November 1, 1895, was elected
president of the Presbyterian College
of South Carolina, located at Clinton,
at a meeting of tho board of trustees,
held last Thursday for the purpose of
selecting a successor to the late Dr.
Wm. G. Neville.
The Laurens correspondent of the
News and Courier, wHtfng of Dr.
Adams' election last Friday, said:
"The news of the election of Dr.
Robert Adams, pastor of tho First
Presbyterian Church, to tho presidency
of the Presbyterian College at Clinton,
last night, came somewhat as a sur
prise to his friends here. It was gener
ally known that Dr. Adams was re
garded by many of the trustees as the
most suitable man for the place, and
even before the olection of Dr. Sweeta
he was urged to allow his name to
come before the trustees. He declined,
however, to allow his name to be used
in connection With tho office, taking
tho position that it was entirely out of
bis line of work, and insisting that a
more suitable person for tho position
could be had.
"During the past few weeks Dr. Ad
ams has had a number of letters from
members of the board of trustees urg
ing him to allow his name to come be
fore the board. One of these letters
in particular had placed the matter
before him in such a way that he felt
that he had no right to refuse the of
fice should he be unanimously elected,
which be was.
"Dr. Adams was born at Eatonton,
Ga. He was educated at the Univer
sity of Georgia, located at Athens, and
received hhi theological training at Co
lumbia and at Princeton, N. J.
"Before coming to Laurens he serv
ed as pastor of Tatnall Square Presby
terian Church, Macon, Ga., and the
First Presbyterian Church, Americus,
Ga. On the 1st. day of November of
this year he will have completed his
twelfth year as pastor ?ilbe First'
Presbyterian Church of this city, at
which time Dr. Adams expects to as
sume his new duties."
SESSION OP FIRST CHURCH. f
Sunday morning before entering upon
his sermon at the first ""resbyterian
Church, Dr. Adams made some remarks
regarding his election as president of
the Presbyterian College, stating that
in view of the unanimity of the board
and friends of the College in conferring
the honor upon himself, he felt that he
should accept tho post.
At his suggestion a ses3ion of the
church will be held on Sunday, Oct. 13
for the purpose of preparing a petition
which will be presented to Enoree
Presbytery which meeta at Mountville,
Tuesday, Oct. 15, asking that the pas
toral relations now existing between
Dr. Adams and the First church be
Of course it cannot be stated at this
time who will be invited to succeed Dr.
Adams as pastor.
A Certain Cure for Croup?'Used for Ten
Years Without a failure.
Mr. W. C. Bott, a Star City, Ind.,
hardware merchant, is enthusiastic in
his praise of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. His children have all been
subject to croup and he has used this
remedy for the paat ten years, and
though they much feared the croup,
bis wife and he always felt safe upon
retiring when a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy was in the bouse. . His
oldest child was subject to severe at
tacks of croup, but thia remedy never
failed to effect a speedy cure. He has
recommended it to friends and neigh
bors and all who have used it say that
it is uncounted for croup and whooping
cough. For sale by Laurens Drug Co.

How to Cure a Cold.
The question of how to cure n cold
without unnecessary loss of time is one in
which we are all more or less interest
ed, for the quicker a cold is gotten rid
of the less danger of pneumonia and
other, diseases. Mr. B. W. L. Hall of
VVaverly, Va., has used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy for years and says: "I
firmly believe Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy to be absolutely the best prep
aration on the market for colds. I have
recommended it to my friends and they
all agree with me." For sale-by Lau

After hearing arguments on the
motion for a new trial last Friday in

Laurens Cotton Mills, Judge Ernest

It is desired of some of the citizens
of Laurens to see a Confederate monu
mont erected on the public square which
will be not only a monument to the
Confederate dead but a source of pride
to every man, woman or child who calls
this city "home." Such a monument
will cost from two thousand to twenty
five hundred ollars. If it is to be
built it will require the united endea
vor of all the citizens but surely it is
well worth the while of everyone to
work for it and give generously to such
a cause. An effort is being made to
build three Comfederate munuments in
this county, one at Cross Hill, one at
Clinton, one at Laurens. The Cross
Hill people hope to unveil their monu
ment next May, the Clinton people
raised three hundred dollars in one
evening last week, how much will

There was a crispness in the air last
Thursday which gave an added zest to
the pleasure of Fall shopping but really
no incentive was needed. The lovely
Fall things were incentive enough for
any mortal woman. At the Hub, Sim
mons and Davis and Roper's the millin
ery openings of course drew big crowds,
for it is admitted that there is nothing
under the sun of quit such vital impor
tance as a woman's hat. This season
brown seems to be leading color and of
lovely creations in brown there is simply
no end. Of course, however, she who
is wise will invest in the color most be
coming to her own eyes and hair and
there are many handsome hats in black,
green, blue, etc. The shapes worn in
the Spring are still in vogue only if pos
sible more pronounced, and if they are
a little trying they are the correct thing
and must bo worn. The most beautiful
suits, skirts, wraps, furs, silks and noy*
elties of every description are shown
not only at the above namod houses but
also at Minter's, Wilson's, and the Red
Iron Racket. She who shops first will
necessarily fare best so the ladies are
advised to come to town at once and
view the pretty things.

First Baptist Church Unanimously Ex?
tends Invitation For New Pastor at
Sunday morning at the conclusion of
the regular service Dr. Pitts announced
that I hen- would be a meeting of the
congregation to hear the annual report
of the church treasurer, and some other
matters would claim attention.
The financial report was made by
Mr. C. B. Bobo.rand on motion three
delegates, Rev. J. D. Pitts, C. B. Bobo
and C. II. Roper, were selected to at
tend the Laurens Baptist Association

chester, Ky. The report was adopted
which carried with it an unanimous

be here next Sunday for the morning

cated to this special committee that he
could take charge of the work on the

recently resigned tho pastorate of the
First church at Winchester. He is thir
ty-five years old and has been in the

THE AUDUBON SOCIETY.
Mr. James Henry Rice, Jr.. Slate Secre
tary Visils Laurcns.
Mr. James Henry Rice, state secre
tary of the Audubon society is spending
a few days in the city in the interest
of the Society. Mr. Rice is traveling
over the State endeavoring to induce
leading citizens in every section to be
come members of this society, which
is one of the most important organiza
tions in the State, having for its object
the preservation of the birds, which in
their turn are the destroyers of so
many pernicious iiiBecta. Game war
dens have-been appointed in many
counties of the State and as soon as the
society gains a foot hold here a warden
will be appointed for this county. Mr.
Rice told The Advertiser reporter that
be had on file letters from dozens of
Laurens farmers who are anxious for
something to be done for the preserva
tion of the birds and fish in this county.
This is Mr. Rice's first visit to Laur
ens but he proposes to be here frequent
ly in future and the work of enforcing
game laws will be seriously taken up.
Mr. Rice incidentally mentioned that
the law in regard to snooting bull bats
had been grossly violated and right at
the present moment when the boll
weevil scare has been so great, the
destruction of bull bats appears the
worst of crimes, as bull bnta and boll
weevils cannot inhabit the same coun
try. It would seem then that the Au
dubon society should be supported
warmly especially by the farmers.
