LAURENS, S. C, JANUARY 29, 1908.
BUILD UP THE TOWN.
Are we going to halt in building up
Laurens? This is a good year for now
industrial movements. Our banks and
factories are doing well. If anyone
would lead in building a new mill we
would like to help a little.
The town has plenty of good business
men who have succeeded, and who
could take advantage of opportunities
to create industries that would help the
community and the country.
SHOULD BE GRANTED.
If wo had a vote in tho Legislature
we should be afraid to cast it against
granting the appropriation of ten thou
sand dollars for the prosecution of the
persons accused of dishonesty in con
nection with the late State dispensary,

Every man under charges who knows
that he is innocent would naturally de

eason that can be offered against
the appropriation worthy of considera
tion by a candid man.
AN ABLE AND SOUND SPEECH.
The address of Senator Tillman to
the members of the General Assembly
ist. Thursday was the soundest and
boat that we have heard him make at
any time, and we have heard him de
liver dozens of speeches since he spoke
in the old Academy Grove (now Mr. N.
B. Dial's place) here in 1887 or 1888.
Perhaps we liked the Columbia address
because it expressed our sentiments ?
sentiments that we have expressed
time and time again for years.
As to immigration the senator said
that, with the negroes in a large ma
jority in South Carolina, we must have
more white men. Therefore, he be
lieved that the State should give assist
ance in money, not standing on the
amount, to efforts to induce white set
tlers. He prefers immigrants from
Northern Europe, but by implication
he said that we would be lucky to get
white men to come here from any part
of the world, though he had no special
liking for the people of Southeastern
Europe. If Congress aids in irrigating
the dry lands of the West, it should aid
in reclaiming the swamp lands of the
South, making them attractive to set
Discussing the federal constitution
amendments that enfranchise the ne
gro, he a\'gued that the Southern States
should unite in a movement to bring
about their repeal, declaring that, af
ter lecturing in all the States of the
Union, he had found that no prejudice
against the South lingered in the North
ern mind except a little in a few per
sons of the older generation. Tho
Northern veterans of the war, as a
rule, are friendly to the South. From
observation, during a brief residence in
the North some years ago, we are pre
pared to agree exactly with the sena
tor's report, and we can see no harm
that would follow an effort by the
JSouth to obtain the relief that the
senator adviaes. Certainly, as the sena
tor remarked, the amendments will not
be repealed unless we ask it.
With the exception of his reference
to the war amendments, everything
that the senator said has been said be
fore, and often in late years. His im
migration argument was made about
three years ago by Col. George John
Btone, of Newberry. But that has
nothing to do with the case. The sena
tor presented the matter in his best
ty e. It was a broad, strong, vigor
u address, and it was bottomed op a
comprehensive view of the interests of
the Southern white people, not only of
this but of future generations. We
wish that he would repeat the address
in every county in South Carolina.

told The truth for a day.

Every Time Ha Mat a Former
Friend?A Climax and a Naw Reso
After thinking It over for a long
time tills man decided that he would
abjure all social cajolery.
Ho made up his udud to cut out all
white lies and to give utterances to
uothlng but the truth.
He expected to have some difficulty
in doing this. lie well knew that the
truth often had a harsh ring. But he
made up hla mind that he was going to
lead his own lite, nnd In the pursuit
of that purpose ho would let nothing
but the naked truth escape bis Hps.
And so he put his purpoao to stick
to the undraped truth Into operation
one morning Inst summer. As he
pasaed out of the Aat vestibule on his
way to the subway n man of his ac
qualntanco in the apartment building
greeted him pleasantly.
"Sumptuous morning, eh?" sakl the
"I do not consider it a aumptuoua
morning," replied the truth teller. "I
consider It too hot."
Tho flat neighbor looked gomewbat
chagrined over this brusque reply, but
he made a new start.
"Somehow or another I always feel
batter In hot weather than I do when
It's chilly," he said. "I even take on
weight during the dog days. I guess,
anyhow, I'm feellug particularly well,
because I'm convalescent from that
bad dose of typhoid fever. D'ye over
see a fellow come around more quick
ly after getting on his feet from ty
phoid thnt; I have?"
"Yep," promptly replied the man, de
termined to tell the truth. "I do not
think your recovery has been very
rapid. I have seen typhoid patients
pick up much more rapidly."
"Say, d'ye mean to say that I'm not
looking bully for a fellow that's been
through the siege I have?" Inquired
Ibe flat neighbor, a trace of annoyance
In his tone.
"In my opinion you look very poor
ly," replied the truth teller, with a
ntcrn determination not to be swerved.
"Huh! (Jot kind of a grouch on this
morning, hey?" snld the flat neighbor
as he passed on down the steps.
On the subway train the truth teller
caught a Beat alongside another man
of his acquaintance.
"Say, old man," began this acquaint
ance expansively, "did I tell you what
that two-year-old kid o' mine said
when I put on a pair of white duck
trousers the other morning?"
"No, you did not," briefly replied the
truth teller, with the air of somebody
"Well," said the acquaintance, "ho
said?ha! ha!?makes me laugh just to
think of it! You've heard that young
un of mine get off those funny things,
haven't you? Just about the smartest
chap for Ids years on earth, don't you
"I do not think so," replied the truth
teller out of hand. "I have heard
many children of bis age say tho same
sort of things, which their parents con
sidered humorous, but in which I nev
er was able to discern a particle of
"Huh! What's that?" flared up the
truth teller's acquaintance. "Say, you
got out of your bunk on the wrong side
this morning." And tho acquaintance,
sorely affronted, moved over to the op
posite crosswise scat.
As he left the subway to make his
otllce the truth teller met nu elderly
woman whose daughter Is in Europe
"Ob, how de do?" said the elderly
woman effusively. "I've just had a
letter from my dearest child, aud she
Is getting on so famously with her
singing. She's In Paris, you know.
She'll be back in two years now, and
what a furore she Is bound to create
on the concert stage, don't you think?"
"Well, I'd hardly venture to predict
that," said the truth teller, with dog
"Wha-wha-what!" fairly gasped tho
astonished mother of the dearest child.
"Do you mean to say that"?
"I grieve to be compelled to tell you
that I really never found much delight
Ir. listening to the singing of tho young
lady, thoroughly appreciative as I am
of her many amiable and engaging
qualities," declared the truth teller.
"Why, 3'off surely have been drink

man, and she gave her parasol a flour

"Hello, there, old pal!" breezily ex
claimed one of the truth teller's old

In upon him at his otllce during tho
forenoon. "Say, I just put on this

"I don't like It," promptly replied
the man with tho new determination.
"How's that?" inquired the old
friend, visibly ehapfallen. "Well,
that's sure brief nnd right to the
point. Don't like It, hey?Just llko
that. Well, out with It then. What
tho dickens Is the mutter with tho
mess o' togs, according to your view?"
"I think tho material of the suit is
too loud and young for n man of your
nge," said the truth teller, sticking to
"Well, dang my eyes," broke out the
old friend, his face crimsoning, "If that
isn't a wallop! Say, d'ye mean to tell
me thnt I'm going around trying to

"Thnt," replied the truth teller, "Is
the only Impression one could derive
from an examination of the suit of
clothes you are wearing."
The old friend stared at the truth
"Well, I'll tell you one thlug, my
friend," he said frigidly after a pause.
"You need a rest and a change of
some kind. There's something wrong
with you, that's a cinch."
And thus about avery fifteen min
utes during the long day the truth
teller made some new enemy.
On his way home that evening the
truth teller had his pet corn acciden
tally stepped upon by a man hurrying
to get n subway seat
"You'll pardon me, IJiopo," said the
man who inflicted the damage, turning
about most politely.
"No, sir," firmly replied the truth
teller. "I shall not pardon you, I do

he made a new resolution.

He had had his evening clothes put
out that he might attend a card- party
to wldch he had been invited, but for
got all about it until the next morning,
when his man pointed out that tho
evening clothes had not been worn.
And then he remarked to himself, "I
know what I'll do." That evening he
put on his dress clothes, went to the
lady's house at tho appointed thno and
walked in as if it were the day upon
which ho had been invited. Tho host
ess, much too polite to tell htm that he
had mistaken the evening and that the
party had taken place on the previous
night, seut to her friends asking them
to come in to play a rubber again.
They did so. In tho course of the even

mindedness, and Dunsen began to tell
them what had happened to him a
long time ago?how that he had for
gotten an Invitation and how he had
made up his mind to go tho next night

story, forgetting altogether that he was
giving them an account of what was
happening at the very moment.

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.
