LAURENS, S. C, OCTOBER 2, 1907.
A NOVEL BY A LAURENS MAN.
For the first time in many years a
Laurens man has published a novel.
"Sinful Sadday, Son of a Cotton Mill,
A story of a Little Orphan Boy Who
Lived to Triumph" is from the press
of Smith & Lamar, Nashville, Tenn.,
and the author is the Rev. Thornwell
Jacobs son of President W. P. Jacobs
of the Thornwell Orphanage and form
erly vice-president of that institution.
It is bound in cloth and there are many
excellent half-tone pictures.
The story is well told. Sinful Sadday
is a Thornwell orphanage hid who came
out of a cotton mill village, and the
incidents of his life tell of the methods
and influence of the Thornwell Orphan
age in building up a Christian charac
Woven into the tale arc numerous
exciting and humerous episodes. There
is a match game of base ball which will
bring vividly to the mind of Southern
people the picture of those contests as
they were fought out ten or fifteen
years ago before the towns and villages
began to corrupt the game by import
ing, hired batteries and other players.
The story discloses the posession of
marked dramatic and constructive tal
ent by the young author, and it will
hold the reader's interest. Morever,
it convinces the reader by its intimate
and sympathetic handling of the inci
dents of orphanage life that a charita
ble institution may be conducted on
truly parental lines. The reader will
be sure when he has finished Sinful
Sadday that the children in the Thorn
well Orphanage are not treated as
mere lay figures, lie will have some
understanding of the beautiful affection
that, beginning with the great-hearted
President, ramifies the institution and
binds the teachers, superintendents and
all the children from the seniors in the
College down to the little ones in kilts,
together, a spirit which differentiates
the Thornwell Orphanage from so many
chairatable institutions in which that
charity "which suifereth long and is
kind" is scarcely known.
Mr. Jacobs has not only written a
book which should command a reception
that will encourage him to further
literary efforts, but he has done a good
work in giving to the public an insight
into the methods which have made the
Orphanage at Clinton so successful in
the development of young men and
women who have proved useful mem
bers of society when they have been
graduated into the world.
SOME COTTON OPINIONS.
THE ADVERTISER never takes tho re
sponsibility of tolling a man what to do
with his cotton. In the long run, the
law of supply and demand fixes the
price. There is no Trust annulling
competition in buying or selling cotton.
The mills of the world are buying
against each other, there are bears and
bulls in the market, and every grower
is striving to get the best price he can.
In our judgement , the average price
of cotton for this season is not likely
to be below what it is now. It may be
Cotton, unlike tomatoes and English
pcaa, is a non-perishable crop. It may
be kept indefinitely. There is every
reason to believe that the price will he
SO much higher in the Spring than now
that the difference will cover the cost
of insurance, storage and interest.
If the farmers generally rush their
cotton to market within the next three
months, the market will go to pieces.
At the end of the three months the cot
ton will be in the hands of cotton mer
chants and spinners. A rise in the
price will benefit only the holders. A
great deal of cotton will be sold by
farmers who owe money. In any case,
a large part of the crop will be sold.
It therefore seems plain that every
man who can hold should do so.
However we must not be understood
as advocating the indiscriminate hold
ing of cotton. We have very good
reasons for believing that the price
will go higher but nobody knows any
thing about cotton and we regard it as
bad business for a man who owes his
cotton crop to hold it. The person that
he owes probably needs the money and
has relied on the collecting of this debt
to meet his own obligation. It is more
important for a poor man to protect
bis business obligation than one who is
better off. His only collateral is his
reputation for honesty and promptness.
His well-to-do neighbor can put up the
more tangible kind and can hold his
cotton with impunity.
If somebody does not hold cotton, the
prico for the crop will be whatever the
buyers choose to pay. If a tremendous
quantity is put upon the market within
a short time, the competition among
the buyers will amount to nothing.
The well-to-do farmers ought by all
means to assist their neighbors in hold
ing. They should encourage their
weaker brethren to place all that they
can in the ware-house. Money can he
borrowed on the ware-house receipt.
Looking over the wholo field, we do
not observe the enthusiasm among the
farmors for their organizations this
year that has prevailed in former
years. Yet it is certain that the farm
ers have received millions that they
would have lost during the past five
years had not theso organizations been
formed and had not their advices been
The Southern Cotton Association
should have an office in every county
the manager of which should know all
about the market, about every farm
er's crop, how much had been sold,
ginned and remained to be sold and
ginned, about the aareage and every
thing connected with the crop. This
office should be managed by a good
, man, and he should be paid well. The
crop of this country should bring about
two million dollars at present prices,
or more. Half a cent in the pound lost
by bad marketing would be a loss of
$100,000 or about that amount, to the
For $2,600. a year an office could be
maintained in which all the facts about
cotton could be collected and through
which the farmers could be advised.
Were all the counties in the South to
be organized in this way, with state
and general offices besides, the inter
est* of the farmer:! would be properly
But we fear the farmers do not wish
to pay out much money in maintaining
an organization. A large proportion of
the scant funds which the Southern
Farmers Association has had has been
contributed by bankers and business
men. One reason that Standard Oil
is a successful concern and controls the
oil market of the world is that it hfres
tho best business brains in the world.
The marketing of a cotton crop worth
six hundred millions of dollars is a big
busineBS. Thousands of keen, trained,
skillful men are paid high salaries to
buy cotton. The buyers spend thous
ands of debars in collecting information
so that they may protect themselves
against paying too much for cotton and
in the struggle to purchase cotton at
tho lowest prices possible. All the
buyers of tho world, we do not mean
the street buyers but the real buyers,
the men who need cotton in their busi
ness, are arrayed against the sellers,
the producers. This is proper. The
farmer tries to buy calico and plow
shares, sugar and grits, as cheap as he
can. But the farmers are unwilling to
pay one half a cent on each pound of
cotton 3old for organization and for the
employment of men to direct the sell
ing and advise in regard to it. Every
farmer tries alone and unaided to buck
the whole machinery of the cotton buy
ing world. Of course this is not liter
ally true; the farmer's organizations
are receiving some support but it is
pitiful in comparison to what they
should receive. Unl.il the men who
sell cotton unite and agree to spend
money freely enough to sustain a
strong organization, manned by shrewd,
intelligent officers, and the organiza
tion is made permanent and covers the
whole cotton growing region, they will
be at the mercy of the buyers here
But it would not be easy to raise a
thousand dollars for the Southern Cot
ton Association in this county to-mor
Gentry Brother's show will be in
Laurens to-day. The performance will
begin at 2 o'clock and again at 8 p. m.
The show is not new and is claimed to
be much better than ever before but
those who have seen it before will be
satisfied with the old record that it has
established. The feature of the show
is the trained animals and probably no
where else has this been brought to
such perfection. There are other at
tractive features of course but this is
the exceptional one:
Every child in Laurens should sec

' When I first knew him he bvedwhere I
Samual Johnson no resides. He took a
contract to build a bridge at Tumbling
Shoals. He rented a cabin from us and
bad dumb Susie for a Cook. It amused
me greatly to sec him giving her orders
how much and what to cook for the
hands. Everything was done by signs.
He would work his hand like a woman
making up dough when bread was to be
baked, and on through all the things
that were needed for the meal.
He used on this bridge big logs hew
ed into 12 inch square sleepers, which
he Mattend on the sharp edge on the end
to lay on the top sills and the opposite
edge was hewed off to a three inch face
for the plank to rest on -so the sleepers
were placed in an octagonal position to
shed off the rain water. Such weighty
timbers would soon swag and break
through by their own weight. Dr. Bell
also put up the old time wood cotton
screws. He went down on Saluda river
to construct a press for a planter, where
he met with more style on a country
farm than he ever saw in his life. He
and his workmen were called in before
meal time to dress. He objected to
the loss of time, he was asked to com
ply with the rules of the house as it was
not costing him anything.
The shirts were furnished, starched
and carried and placed in their room
before each meal and they had to dress
and uudress three times each day. This
was an old English custom. He was
also a noted doctor, and no man in the
State could beat him in a certain line
of disease. He would take men to his
homo and cure them, when others had
made failures in treating them.
He bought runaway negroes in the
woods and took the work of capturing
them. When they had been out a long
time, they were sold cheap, and the
Doctor would get them in and sue for a
big price to the negro traders. It was
told on the old man, some times on
buying a runaway the negro would beat
