LAURENS; S. C; JANUARY 22, 1908.
WILLIAM ERNEST LUCAS.
In the industrial and financial life of |
this city and county William Ernest Lu
cas was beyond compare the foremost |
man who has lived since the war be
tween the State's.
After repeated failures to organize a |
t >tton mill here his courage, his busi
ness genius and his fidelity to trust in
spired a confidence in the people of
Laurens in 1895, and under his essential
and indispensable leadership the finest
property in South Carolina was built
and placed upon a plane of impregna
ble financial strength. Seven years
later he founded Watts Mill, an estab
lishment now of equal size with the
other, and lived to see it develop and
The direction and the ability of Mr.
Lucas brought to this town and its
suburbs an increase of useful white
population of 2,600. Including the
Watts Mill suburb, the work of Mr.
Lucas as an industrial leader built
about half the town, and changed it
from a village into a city. Of course,
without the help of numerous others
he, a poor man as the world goes, could
not have done it, but his brain and
heart were the engine that moved Lau
rens as a manufacturing town, and
others of us merely shoved in coal.
The business men of Laurens, practi
cally without exception, had unlimited
faith in Mr. Lucas' sterling honesty
and fidelity. The record of this is writ
ten in the fact that even his critics re
mained shareholders in the mill of which
he had complete management at the
time of his death. So much for what
he did for Laurens.
A word personal. By reason of the
character of my daily work I have been
brought Into association, occasionally
close, with numbers of the most promi
nent men in this country and this State,
in all walks of life; and, writing with
deliberation, I say that in all the ele
ments contributing to a great person
ality he was worthy to rank with the
best of them. In our age and time, an
age and time of stress and conflict, the
great man is seldom easy-going, smooth,
perfectly trained, balanced and adjust
ed; and I do not say that my friend was
of that type, but he had the extraor
dinary force that would have made him
a great leader no less In New York or
Chicago than in Laurens. In behalf of
the people for whom he was trustee he
challenged the wealth of New York;
and I affirm, knowing whereof I speak,
that by merely following the wishes of
millionaires, which would have sub
jected him to no criticism, he might
have fattened his private purse and se
cured freedom from the fierce harass
ment that aggravated the burden when
fatal sickness oppressed his last years.
There are many poor and humble
men and women in Laurens who loved
him for reasons that the public cannot
know. If ever a man was charitable,
and yet concealed his giving, it was
he. A marked characteristic of his na
ture was abhorrence of all that is
prurient and ribald in conversation. He
was as modest as a child. He was de
voted to his family. He loved his
friends. He was abstemious in his hab
its. If he spoke hastily sometimes he
did not bear malice. ' His one personal
pleasure was in good horses?a sure
sign of a wholesome nature.
As he grew older his character ri
pened in tenderness and sympathy.
Suffering all the time during the last
three years of his life, his splendid in
tellect and energy never flagged and his
careful, vigorous attention to every de
tail of his mill was continued -."ithout
remittance. Even last year he spent
hours every day out of his office and in
the mill itself. With a regretful tone,
he told me less than a year ago that he
wae tempted to act as superintendent
of Watts Mill; that, were he well, he
would not heed a superintendent. Had
his health and life been spared, there
would have been no limit to his achieve
ments as a manufacturer, for every day
his comprehension of the duties of his
calling grew stronger and better. He
was one of the first manufacturers in
the State to recognize the obligations
of the ompany to the "help," in build
ing churches and schools. In the last
conversation that I had with him, I
think it was the last subject that he
talked to me about, he outlined a lit
tle plan for the improvement of his
mill village, something that would make
lifo better and brighter for the children
and men and women of it.
It was a blessing and a source
of strength to me to know him inti
mately, to have had tho surety of his
friendship, to have caught some glimpse
of the light of high ideals that shone
within him. He has passed away, hav
ing accomplished a great work, and at
what seemed yet the threshold of his
career. Perhaps there aro those who
will say that what I have written is
extravagant. His actual prominence
and fame were not so great as the
qualities that I have mentioned would
in time have brought to him, but at
least I have written what I believe to

AN INTERESTING REMINISCENCE.
Rain and Bad Roads?Interested in
?W. D. S." Articles.
Gray Court, January 13.?Christmas
is over, but wedding bells are still ring
It continues to rain and the roads are
in a fearful condition, but not so bad
as around Shiloh.
We have been reading with interest
the stories of "W. D. S." on the old
landmarks around tho town?especially
those of Robert Seibert and Uncle Billy
I Mitchell, whom we happened to know.
Uncle Billy's resolve to always keep a
woman around to cook his Christmas
dinner was a good one, and was char
acteristic of the man himself. It will
be remembered that he had four good
women to get up his dinner for him,
three of whom were furnished by this
neighborhood. The Sunday morning
that he went forth to claim his fourth
and last bride he shaved himself with
out a glass and retired to his room to
don his wedding garments, and came
out with his shirt bosom on his back.
When the question arose as to how
many passengers the conveyance would
carry one young lady said that she had
thought of going provided there was
"Oh! well," says Uncle Billy, "there
won't be room this time; you can go
The next time never came, but Uncle
Billy got there just the same.
The Pure Food taw.
Secretary Wilson says, "One of the
objects of the law is to inform the con
sumer of the presence of certain harm
ful drugs in medicines." The law re
quires that the amount of chloroform,
opium, morphine, and other habit form
ing drugs be stated on the label of each
bottle. The manufacturers of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy have always
claimed that their remedy die' not con
tain any of these drugs, and the truth
of this claim is now fully proven, as no
mention of them is made on the label.
This remedy is not only one of the
safest, but one of the best in use for
coughs and colds. Its value has been
proven beyond question during the
many years it has been in general use.

MR. COTHRAN WITHDRAWS.
Associate Justice Oary Will Be Re
elected Without Opposition.
Columbia, January 17.?Mr. Thomas
P. Cothran today announced his with
drawal from the race for associate jus
tice against Hon. E. B. Gray, and Jus
tice Gary will bo re-elected without op
position. The two Houses have not
agreed on the day for the elections,
but it is thought the elections will be
held on Wednesday next.
Mr. Cothran, when asked if he hnd
withdrawn, said: "Yes, I have decided
to withdraw from the race. I have
gone carefully over the situation, and
realize that my election at this time
would bo extremely improbable. I ap
preciate more than I can toll the sup
port of my friends, and I am unwilling
to place them in the position of being
led into a losing fight."
It is understood, also, that Senator
Bates, of Barnwell, will not permit his
name to be used in the race for judge
of the 2d circuit, and the contest will
be between Robert Aldrich, James E.
Davis and Claude E. Sawyer.
The finest Coffee Substitute ever
made has recently been produced by
Df*. Slump, of Racine, Wis. You don't
have to boil it fifteen or twenty min
utes. "Mado in a minute." says the
doctor. "Health Coffee" is really the
closest coffee imitation ever yet pro
duced. Not a grain of real coffee in it,
either. Health Coffee Imitation is made
from pure toasted cereals or grains,
with malt, nuts, etc. Really it would
fool an expert, were he to unknowingly

DOGS IN BAGDAD.
Why They Do Not Loot the Food
Bazaars of the Town.
Bagdad la alive with more or less
hungry dogs. How Is it that Much
packs of furleB do not loot the bazaars
of the town? The explanation Is as
simple as it Is interesting. The Bag
dad shop fronts are absolutely open.
Tho goat und mutton carcasses are
hung where every dog that ruus can
reach them. But time out of mind
the first glance of a dog's eye toward
forbidden dainties has been visited
with tho swift desceut on him of ?
cudgel or a hatchet.
On one of a series of marches paral
lel with the Euphrates I chanced to
meet a de??rt horde whose greyhounds
are In hipb repute. Buying a brace
of saplings. I took them on with me,
lodging the n in the tent and doing
everything that was possible to make
them feel at home.
Surprising to relate, they obstinately
refused both food and water. The re
mains of a venison pasty seemed,at
once to attract aud repel them. A pan
of water appealed to them even more
strongly, but they would not go up
After a time a Persian muleteer ex
plained the mystery In a twinkling.
No sooner did lie upset the water nnd
toss the viands on the ground beforo
them than the silky eared ones ran In
like Trojans and made up in a few
moments for a day's fasting.
Accustomed to lap from tho river,
from Irrlgatlonnl channels and from
sheets of surface water nnd reared
among peoplo who do not use tables,
they had been taught by mnny a buffet
to keep their noses out of cooking pots
and vessels of every description.
In Bagdad man and beast alike drink
of tho great river, which nlso forms
the arterial common sewer of the city,
the place where clothes nrc washed
and tho "Stygian wave" Into which Is
dragged every beast of burden when
It Is not left to He whore It has fallen.
The muddy bottom, with the water
ever receding, the exposed surface*
thick with impurities and the tropical
sun "sucking up nil the infections,"
must be n regular hotbed of miasma
And yet, mlrablle dlctu, Bagdad Is
not, os eastern cities go, unhealthy.
But let the reader imagine to himself
what the Bagdad of the foregoing
slight description would be like with
out the dogs that scavenge It. Refuso
animal and vegetable matter Is largely
disposed of by the dogs, in situ.?Nine

Tho Difference Between Instinct and
Most animals have little self con
sciousnebs, and their reasoning powers
nt b^*t are of a low order, but In kind
at >en?t tho powers are not different
from reason In man. A horse reaches
Over the fence to be company to an
other. This is Instinct. When It lets
down the bars with its teeth, that is
reason. When a dog finds its way
homo at night by the sense of smell,
this may ho Instinct; when ho drags a
stranger to his wounded master, that
Is reason. When a Jack rubbit leaps
oyev a bush to escape a dog or runs in
a circle beforo a coyote, or when It
Ucs flat in the grass as a round ball of
gray, indistinguishable from grass,
this is Instinct. But the same animal
Is capable ?f reason?that Is, of a dis
tinct c'?' 'ong lines of action. Not
long < i came bounding across
the i mpus at Palo Alto.
As tt . >d n ler it suddenly faced
two Rin o v...gs running side by side
toward It. It had the choice of turn
ing back, its first instinct, but a dan
gerous one; of leaping over the dogs
or of lying on tho ground. It chose
none of these, and Its choice was in
stantaneous. It ceased leaping, ran
low and went between the dogs just
as they were in tho act of seizing It,
and the surprise of the dogs as they
stopped and tried to hurry around was
the same feeling that a man would
havo In like circumstances.?"Evolu

to say that history propor and tho

Find MASTIC MIXED PAINTS thoroughly practical. A combi
nation of lead and zinc in proper proportion, it is superior to any paint
made of lead alone. Hand made paints mixed in a can and stirred with
a stick cannot produce results like
Mastic Mixed Paint,
"The Kind that Lasts,"
Ground and re-ground by powerful machinery which therefore produces
a smoother, glossier and more beautiful finish, covers more surface and
resists the elements better. The cost of putting on poor paint is just
as much as for putting on MASTIC PAINT that does not have to be re
newed every year or so. The saving is all in favor of MASTIC PAINT.
