LAURENS, S. C, OCTOBER 9, 1907.
BUILD THE MONUMENT.
We wish that a Confederate monu
ment were erected in every public place
in the South. One hundred and fifty
years from now the history of the Con
federacy will not be fresh in the ears
of the children. Even the youngsters
of the present generation have not that
understanding of and sympathy with
the motives which caused their fathers
and mothers to make unmeasured sac
rifices in the great struggle for liberty
which those brought-up 20 years ago
have. It is hard for us who am older
to understand how the passing of
time dims the view of events and ob
scurcs their true outlines to the eyes
of the little ones. We hear a great
deal about tho need for school books
written by Southern men and it is not
overestimated, but a monument to the
Confederate dead on our Public Square
would be of more value than a history
written by a Southern man and studied
in the Laurens schools, for as long as
the monument should stand it would
testify to posterity that the people of
Laurens are proud of the record of the
county in the Croat War.
The building of this monument is a
duty which we cannot avoid and we
hope that the necessary money will be
contributed promptly and willingly.
A SOUTHKRN MAGAZINE.
Joel Chandler Harris, the author of
"Uncle Remus," has established a
magazine in Atlanta called "Uncle
Remus." It is published monthly, it
is illustrated and the subscription price
is only one dollar a year. It is in every
way as excellent as any of the North
ern magazines; it is in no sense a
cheap, second class publication and its
contents are written by authors of stand
ing in the literary world. It is, so far
as we know, the only Southern maga
zine that has been founded in many
years which aspires to a high place in
contemporary literature. Southern
writers, such as Mr. Harris, Thomas
Nelson Page, Harry Stillwell Edwards,
Miss Glasgow and others of the first
class have been compelled heretofore
to seek Northern avenues for the pub
lication of their work and it should be
a matter of pride to every Southerner
that a magazine now exists through
which the distinctive literature of the
South may be given to the reading
We wish that every family In Laur
ens able to subscribe to any magazine
would, before taking any other, send a
dollar to "Uncle Remus," Atlanta. As
everybody knows, it is a big undertak
ing to maintain a literary magazine
except in the largest cities, the centers
of the advertising business, but this
one in Atlanta can be made a success
if it shall receive the patriotic, support
that it richly deserves from the South
A well-to-do man who would like to
help in upholding the honor of the
Southern country could do it in no more
effective way than by subscribing for
a number of the magazines for his
friends. Five dollars would fcive it to
TO WIN SHOULDER STRAPS.
The following suggestive extract is
from a letter in the New York World:
"Under the above heading appears in
your issue of Sept. 20 a letter from
'Eight Till Six' complaining that the
young men of our times look for easy
hours. While no doubt there is room
for such complaints, 1 am only one of
many on the other side, having honestly
and conscientiously spent my ten best
years in the belief he expresses?that
i.i, 'looking forward, sticking to the
position, always placing the concern's
interest above my own.'
"I have been first in the morning and
last at night, even taking work home.
I have in some cases stopped, in other
cases prevented, leaks and irregularities
in different forms, thereby saving many
thousands of dollars, all in the belief
that serving my employers well would
Ining its reward. Instead, I am after
all this time getting only $25 per week,
although the linn will readily admit I
am valuable. But when an opening for
a better position occurs it is always for
some relative or friend of some of the
members of the firm. Now the ques
tion nrises, What am I to do?"
The trouble with this middle-aged
man is that he lacks pluck. There are
many like him he signs his letter "One
of Many." A young fellow working on
a salary strives to do his utmost for the
firm. He takes for granted that the
firm will promote him and finally make
him a member of the firm perhaps; but
that does not always happen.
"One of Many" fears to ask a raise
of salary lest he be told to leave. Then
what should he do? If he is tho right
sort, he will start a firm of his own.
If be is the right sort, (it seems that
this man has not saved a dollar) he has
ahead saved a little money something
from his salary every year. This he
will use in starting a business. If it is
not enough to begin with in New York,
ho will carry his family to Doko or
Roundtop or some other village where
he may rent a house for $15 or $20 a
month and where a shop may bo estab
lished for $500 or $10,000. Roundtop
perhaps has no theater or steam laundry
or trolley car lino and Mrs. "One o**
Many" simply can't bear the idea of
living there. Perhaps that is what is
the matter with the husband, who con

Thousands of the most valuable and
faithfui employees drudgo out their
lives because they are afraid of Satur
day nights. In other words, they shrink
from the responsibility of running a
business themselves because they don't
dare suffer the wear and tear of getting
together the money to payoff the hired
men, the employees. That is what the
"firm" has to do: it is the firm's busi
ness to see that there is plenty in the
drawer to pay "One of Many" and all
of his thousands of brothers and cousins
and sisters and sons and daughters, so
that their families may have beefsteak
for breakfast during the coming week.
The men who boss this world are
those that rely on themselves and cut
loose, who wade through the morasses
and who sweat and bleed, that Brown,
Smith and Jones and the rest may have
no harder problem to solve than so di
viding $25 a week that the strips
will cover the bills of the school-book
seller, the butcher, tho milliner, the
shoe man, and the grocer and settle the
life insurance premium, usually thirty
days after it is due. It is a safe bet
that "One of Many" is behind on his
pastor's salary. The pastor is the man
he depends on for Christian burial.
Many of the bold spirits who are not
"One of Many" fail but thousands are
capable of succeeding for themselves
who from week to week postpone cut
ting loose because, down in their hearts,
they want the "firm" to bear that fear

A Utile talk to the Boys.
Sarodel's solution of the problem,
"Why Boys Leave the Farm," was sat
isfactory in the case of small boys. They
ought to be encouraged, as he says, but
at a very early age. I think after they 1
reach young manhood they leave for
various reasons; some have ability that
would never bo rewarded on the farm,
and they know it. Others leave as if
to escape something work, those who
have a wandering disposition, I suppose
to see the world. It is all very good
and should not be looked upon with
alarm, as it enables them to know them
selves; to know what they are best fitted
for. The world is the best school there
is: if one does not learn before, he will
when he is thrown in his own resources
away from home. I sometimes think
if a boy was made to leave home when
he reaches the age of, say about 18, it
would be good for him, especially if he
was apprenticed at some good trade.

Our fast growing towns have nothing

well before he gives up the old farm.
It is the best place of all.
It is well to go and try other things
and discover, if possible, what suits
you best. By all means learn yourself;
discover every weakness, and begin as
soon as discovered to remedy and
strengthen the weakness. There is a
remedy for all things, and remember
that "no man is stronger than his weak
est point." If you have any nerve
sapping habits, for your own sake leave
them off. You have oidy to will strong

Fair Yields?an Experiment.
In its daily consular and trade re
port of Wednesday the department of
commerce and labor at Washington
"Consul John L. Griffith writes that
prominence has been given in the Liv
erpool newspapers to an announcement
of the sale on that market of a sample
of five bales of Indian 'Spence cotton'
at 15 cents per pound. The consul
sends the following on this subject
concerning which considerable has
been printed from consuls in India:
" 'The sample cf cotton referred to is
the result of three years' experimenst
with an indigenous Indian cotton by
J. R. Spence, formerly a member of
the Liverpool Cotton association. The
product is stated to be strong and
wiry, with a staple of 1 to 1 1-4 inches
in length. It is suggested that the sale
of the sample of "Spence cotton" at
the price named indicates important
possibilities in the vast cultivable area
of India. A local paper says:
" ' "There are now considerably over
20,000 trees on Mr. Spence's plantation
at Deesa, Bombay presidency, In a
most flourishing condition growing to a
height of from 6 to 7 feet, full of buds
and bolls and bearing cotton daily. The
yield of the first year has proved to be
2 1-2 ounces per tree, and as there are
over 5,00 trees to the acre, thia gives
as the first year's yield 800 pounds per
acre. The second year's crop has
proved double that of the first, and it
increases every year."
" 'This cotton it is claimed is able
to withstand long periods of drought,
and has so far escaped the ravages of
the troublesome boll worm. This In
dian cotton tree docs not appear to
require much attention after it has
been once planted, and it grows to a
height of 0 or 7 feet. Its greatest pro
duction is in its third year. An effort
s now being made in Eng/and to orga
nize a company for the production and
oxploitation of this cotton.' "

Meanly of Old People.
Men and women make their own
beauty and their own ugliness. Lord
Lytton speaks of a man who was
"uglier than he had any business to
be," and if he could but read it every
human being carries life in his face,
and is good looking or tho reverse as
has life has been good or,evil. On our
features the fine chisels of life and
emotion are eternally at work. Beauty
is not the monopoly of blooming young
men and pink and white maids. There
is a slow-growing beauty which only
comes to to perfection in old age.
