his answers to which he assumed the
responsibilities and duties of his new

impressive charge to the new president

dress on the subject of education. This
was followed by a brief account of the
college's history from Dr. Byrd, in
which he said that of all the many
happy days in the history of the college
this on which the representatives of

WALLACE DUNCAN MEMORIAL.
Suggestion Made for Church Extension
Day in Methodist Denomination.
May 10th has been authoritatively
designated as Church Extension day in
the South Carolina Methodist church.
At that time it is asked and expected
that churches, Sunday schools, Epworth
leagues and outside friends will be given
the opportunity to aid a great work by
raising a large fund to build churches,
especially in the new State of Okla
In a letter Dr. John O. Willson says
"South Carolina will surely not be out
of line with her sister conferences.
From the day when we gave Tobias
Gibson to the west, Methodists of South
Carolina have been interested in that
great country, which promises to yield
wonderful results. Oklahoma is a
southern State, largely settled, as
were other States along the Mississippi,
and beyond, by South Carolinians. Our
church now has a majority of the
church members of Oklahoma, and they
need our aid. Certainly we are willing
to assist them in building sanctuaries In
which to worship. That done they will
take care of themselves. Let us make
a worthy offering on May 10th, the
Memorial day in our State.
"Next, I beg to suggest, and I have
permission so to do, that the church ex
tension fund we shall raise on May 10th
shall be called the Wallace Duncan
"Thus we can honor a great life un
stintedly devoted to our service, and so
doing we shall honor ourselves. Our
departed bishop is worthy, the cause is
worthy and was dear to his heart, and
the great people we help are people
worthy of all we can do and more.
There is no need to multiply words. To
do a great work for Christ and Okla
homa, and to honor a great life for
Christ, the Carolinas, and our south
land, should stir us to the most liberal
Daughters of Confederacy Hold Meeting.
Mrs. J. O. C. Fleming entertained
the Daughters of the Confederacy Sat
urday afternoon in honor of the birth
day of Wade Hampton. The meeting
was very interesting as several impor
tant matters were before the chapter
for discussion. It was decided to give
early in May "Mister and Mistus Jere
mire Robkins' Singin' Skule Begin
ment" for the benefit of the monument
fund. This entertainment will be given
by local talent and is said to be "A
laugh at the start, a laugh at the fin
ish, a laugh all the way through."
The next meeting of the chapter will
be a call meeting held some time in
April to complete arrangements for this
entertainment and the programme for
Memorial day, which will be observed
this year the 9th of May as the 10th
falls on Sunday.

HAS BEEN GIVEN
Public Square to be Paved With Vitrified
Brick by the Southern Clay
At a meeting of City Council last
FridaY night the contract for paving
the public square was awarded to the
Southerr: Clay Manufacturing Co., of
Chattanooga, Tenn. Quite a number
of bids were submitted to Council, but
as the Southern Clay Company's was
the smallest?$2.19 per square yard ?
the contract was given the Chattanooga
The contract calls for the paving of
about twelve thousand square yards,
which is to be done with vitrified brick.
With the exception of a small reserva
tion surrounding the court house,
which is to be converted into a lawn,
the entire square, including the several
immediate street approaches, is thus to
be paved. ?
Messrs. Parker and McNeill, of the
Southern Clay Company, will have the
supervision of the work, which will be
gin within about ten days.
There is absolutely nothing that a
woman could wish for in the way of a
dress or a hat that cannot be bought in
Lauterts this season. The spring hats,
as shown at yesterday's openings, are a
sight to gladden all truly feminine
hearts, and the dress materials and
trimmings in most beautiful patterns
leave nothing to be desired.
The millinery openings held at Davis
& Roper's, Simmons' and Nelson's
were attended by hundreds of ladies.
At Davis & Roper's fancy plates were
given as Souvenirs to all opening visi
The hats this season are in the main
large, and wings as well as llowers are
much used in the trimming. The trim
med sailor is again to be seen, but in a
larger shape than those worn some
years ago. A description of the hats,
however, is something impossible to
attempt. It is necessary to visit the
stores and see the pretty things- words
are not equal to the situation. At
Simmons' a particularly pretty line of
the new Tussorah silks is shown. At
Davis & Roper's certain plain and em
broidered nets and Persian organdies
are fascinating beyond words to con
vey. In all of the stores there are not
just a few things to select from, but
quantities upon quantities. At Minter's
and Wilson's, though there were no
hats to be seen, the stores were in gala
dress and the new goods artistically
What we would like to impress upon
our readers is that l^aurens is one of
the best towns in the State to shop.
All the newest materials, the most
fashionable colors, the latest novelties
in trimmings, in ribbons, in belts, in
ties, in gloves, in shoes can be found
here at any one of a half dozen estab
lishments. If you have shopping to do,
do it in Laurens.
MISS NANCE TO VISIT LAURENS.

Miss Nance will, perhaps, spend ten
days or two weeks here.

That languid, lifeless feeling that
comes with spring and early summer
can be quickly changed to a feeling of
buoyancy and energy by the judicious
use of Dr. Shoop's Restorative. The
Restorative is a genuine tonic to tired,
run-down nerves, and but a few doses
is needed to satisfy the usor that Dr.
Shoop's Restorative is actually reach
ing that tired spot. The indoor life of
winter nearly always leads to sluggish
bowels and to sluggish circulation in
general. The customary lack of exer
cise and outdoor air ties up the liver,
stagnates the kidneys, and ofttimes
weakens the heart's action. Use Dr.
Shoop's Restorative a few weeks and
all will be changed. A few days' test
will tell you that you are using the right
remedy. You will easily and surely note
tho change from day to day. Sold by

SENATOR GARY A BUSY MAN.
Absence of Senator Tillman Leaves all |
Interests in Hin Hands.
The Washington correspondent of
the Spartanburg Herald says of Sena
tor Gary's new duties and responsibili
"Senator Gary is having his hands
full just now with a task such as has
not fallen to the lot of any Senator
from South Carolina, and perhaps from
any other State, since the early days
of the national government. With less
than two weeks of actual service in the
Senate, ho ia left with the interests of
the State in that body entirely in his
charge, Senator Tilhnan's illness hav
ing necessitated his absence from the
Senate and his refraining from atten
tion to work.
"Senator Gary, however, is not afraid
of work, and has been doing a consider
able share of it in the past few weeks.
He has not adopted the tactics of tho
erratic Senator from Arkansas, Jeff
Davis, who enmo much horaldcd to
Washington, butted in and made a
speech upon a subject which was not
before the Senate in any sense of the
word, vanished and has not been in his
seat since. Senator Gary has nut made
any great speeches, nor hau ho tried to
overturn the Henato or to defy that
strango but powerful influence which
is generally known as 'Senatorial cour
I tesy.' He is keeping his eyes and ears
open and his moyth, closed, so far as
'hot air' is concerned, and is taking
care of the State's interests, in the Sen
ate in a most crodita>lo way."

coffee imitation ever yet produced. This
clever coffee substitute was recently
produced by Dr. Shoop of Racine. Wis.
Not a grain of real coffoo in It. Health
coffee is mado from pure toasted cereals
with malt, nuts. etc. Really it would
fool an expert who might drink it for
coffee, No twenty to thirty minutes'
tedious boiling. "Made in a minute"
says the doctor. Sold by J, M. Philjwt.

County School Association
Met Last Saturday.
Subject of Holding Teachers' Summer
School Discussed. An Invitation
Extended and Accepted.
The County Teachers' Association
held its monthly meeting in the court
house Saturday morning, thero being
in attendance about thirty members of
the Association. The meeting was pre
sided over by President Rice, of Lan

topics before the Association were Miss
Emma Dial, Supt. Dobson, Prof. W. C.
Duncan, Miss Ella Copeland, Prof. J.
C. Anderson, Miss Pearl Blakely, Prof.
! John D. Hunter and President Rice.
The question of holding a summer
school for teachers was brought up, and
it was the sentiment of the Association
that a district or county .school should
be held this summer. A small appro
priation has been made for holding
schools in each county, but it is recog
nized that a district school including
several counties would be more profit
able. With the view of ascertaining
the attitude of adjoining counties in thu
matter, Supt. Nash was requested to
communicate with the county superin
tendents of education of Greenwood,
Abbeville, Nevvhorry and Edgofiold. ex
pressing to each the sentiment of tho
Laurens teachers. In the event of tho
failure to arrange a district summer
school, a four weeks' session will hn
held by Laurens county some time dur
ing the cominrr summer.
The. Association accepted an invita
tion to be the guests of the Lauren?
city school faculty on the occasion of
its next meeting, Saturday, May 2.
At the conclusion of the session the
Association was entertained at dinner
at Gray's Hotel by the Lauren? "ounty
Board of Education.
