LAURENS, S. C, APRIL 22, 1908.
Just at this time it may be appropri
ate to give publicity to a composition
on Easter written by a youthful but
promising young man. It reads as fol
lows: '?'Easter mean rising Christ was
born on Easter and rose from the Grave
three Days After and Jonah rose up
Out of the Water to Meet Him."
It may now be authoritatively an
nounced that no hats will be worn in

is this: Married ladies under 40 years of

will not be a "single" lady with a hatj
on next Sunday.

To the City Authorities: Gentlemen,
this newspaper does not presume to
dictate; it merely suggests and hopes
its suggestions will be taken as such
nd in the spirit that actuates the mak
ing. We learn that there is an ordi
nance already on 'the books against
hack drivers and porters crowding
around the train exits. There is a rail
ing there at the station, presumably to
mark the deadline; why notenforce the
law? Authorities are sometimes re
sponsible for lawlessness because they
allow such encroachment in little mat
ters. This crowd at the train exits is
a nuisance and is allowed in only the
smaller towns. It is said that even the
little town of Newberry prohibits and
enforces such an ordinance as we have;
then surely the city of Laurens should
see to it that her city appearances are
all kept up.
PLANT LESS COTTON.
The present condition of the cotton
mills and the exceedingly low price of
cotton goods is at first glance somewhat
surprising in view of the short cotton
crop this past year. But the cause is
apparent after a little investigation.
PriceB do not always depend altogether
on the past crop, but equally as much
on the coming crop. The slump in
prices of goods is with a view to a large
cotton crop this year. The manufac
turers, with a prospect of cheap cotton
this Fall, cannot afford to pay high
prices for cotton at this time; and with
cotton goods so cheap it would be doubly
The remedy rests with the farmers,
who can, if they will, restore good
prices for both their own and the pro
ducts of the manufacturer:!. The inter
ests of the farmer and the manufac
turer are not antagonistic; but the
farmer has the power to hurt the manu
facture;, but in so doing he will ruin
the prico of raw cotton. On the other
hand, he can help the manufacturer at
the same time he helps himself. How?
Reduce the acreage; plant less cotton.
Let him diversify his plantings and
InaU^corn, alfalfa, pea vines and such
like and 25 per cent, less cotton. Plant
less cotton and the former good prices

The Schub*) t Symphony Club very
acceptably entertained the people of
Laurens on ? Tuesday evening under the
auspices of $e Eastern Stars. The
organization cleared a neat little sum
from the undertaking besides furnish
ing a high-toned and excellent enter
tainment for the lovers of good music.
Upon this they merit our congratula
tions and thanks. But it was not this
that we wished to note especially; in
stead, a matter of probably not so much
importance but of equal interest.
Among the entertainers of the eve
ning was young Mr. Purcell, the accom
plished, though very youthful violinist.
Mr. Purcell plays beautifully; in fact
his skill Is nothing short of remarkable.
His playing was of diversified nature,
revealing a mastery of all kinds of vio
lin music: the difficult classic selections
as well as the simpler, though sweeter,
low, plaintive pieces. We repeat, Mr.
Purcell's playing was of the first order;
but--he just could not make his eyes
behave. Fearful accusation! During
all his playing he hardly put his eyes I
on his instrument, as do most violin
ists; they were wandering over the au
dience all the while. We readily sae
why no newspaper has called attention
to this fact, for we doubt if Mr. Pur
cell acted th?8 in any other city than
Laurens. Neither must we search far
to discover his reason for so doing here;
conditions were such that he could
scarcely do otherwise. Let it be under
stood that we are not censuring this
young man; we are merely giving him
a bit of advice that will serve him in
the future and in other places. The
fact of the business was that Tuesday
evening saw gathered together a crowd
of the prettiest young women in South
Carolina, or anywhere else for that
matter, and this young man just could
not keep his eyes on the violin. Now,
as stated, we have no criticism to make
about the occurrence here; it is per
fectly proper and really could not be
helped. But as a piece of fatherly
counsel we want to say to Mr. Purcell
that he should not do it; it spoils the
effect of his excellent playing.
Another Easter day, with all its hal
lowed associations, sacred memories
and divine teachings, has come and
gone. Over all Christendom and among
all its peoples was celebrated this me
morial of the resurrection of Christ,
the Saviour of the world. Again the
lessons of the day have been brought
to mind and its teachings expounded.
Just what those teachings are need not
be enlarged upon; they are known to
even the smallest children. That Jesus,
the Redeemer of mankind, who was
sacrificed for the sin of the world, on
this day arose from the grave, is a fact,
known almost universally. And that
this resurrection revealed the suprem
acy of Jesus over death and sin and
typified both a renewal of spiritual life
here and the last and great resurrec
tion unto eternal life, we know to be
the significance of the occasion.
Easter day is the celebration of a
fact in sacred history upon which rests
the whole plan of the world's redemp
tion. The world, by sin, was lost and
beyond the pale of God's salvation;
Jesus by His death and resurrection
paid the penalty of world's sin and es
tablished the way of man's redemption.
His resurrection typifies man's rising
from sin and death unto a life for God
and in His service?a life here on earth
as well as the other and eternal life.
It means a new life.
At this season, when all about us is
nature's resurrection; when the earth,
escaped from the death clutches of win
ter bursts forth into new and beautiful
life; when the blood of all life begins
to move again and even bounds upward
in its work of revivification, it is indeed
befitting that we commemorate this
resurrection of spiritual life. And it
need not be merely a celebration; it
holds practical good in its teachings,
which applied will add new vigor and
force to the spiritual activities of all
who conscientiously observe the day.
The good of Easter day is too great
and holy to be lost or even lessened;
may the common sense of a sane people
keep it from degenerating into a day
for modistes and milliners.
The special term of court to try those
two negro boys in Lexington last week
was, in our opinion, utterly useless and
extravagant. The lynching scare seems
to be all rot. While the crime for
which they were tried was a most bru
tal murder, and we heartily approve the
verdict and sentence, the haste seems
unwarrantable, in both the trial and
the day of execution. But then there
was no "learned counsel" there to se
cure a postponement. ? We merely wish
to point out the inconsistency of the
thing; chiefly because they are negroes
and without money they are disposed of

Some Comments on Visit of Mr. Riegel
to Laurens and Status, of
Ware Shoals Contest.
The published accounts of the recent
visit of B. D. Riegel, of the Ware
Shoals Manufacturing Company, to
Laurens and his purposes attracted
much comment here and called forth a
statement from the legal committee
representing the minority in the now
This committee, consisting of Messrs.
P. P. McGowan, A. C. Todd and R. A.
Cooper, was appointed at the stock
holders' meeting in the court house last
year to investigate the condition of af
fairs and if possible to effect an amica
ble settlement between the contending
interests, and also to take any other ac
tion they deemed advisable and neces
sary to protect the interests of the mi
nority stockholders. The pending suit
by the stockholders is the result of this
committee's decision on the matter af
ter they found a settlement impossible.
These committeemen in reply to inter
"We hardly think it proper for us to
discuss the merits of or any legal ques
tions involved in the eases now pending
against the Riegels in reference to the
Ware Shoals matter.
"As to why these steps have been
taken, we can only say that last sum
mer we were appointed a committee of
the local minority stockholders at a
meeting held here to look into their
rights and take such legal action as was
necessary to protect their interests.
This was a large and representative
meeting of the minority. There were
over 100 stockholders present in person
and about half as many more repre
sented by proxies. The minutes of this
meeting show that there was not a dis
senting voice with the exception of Mr.
W. R. Richey, who is now an attorney
for the Riegels. We were given full
power to act. This committee, to
gether with the other attorneys in the
case for the plaintiffs, commenced these
suits against the Riegels, because they
thought then and still think that the
same are necessary to save the prop
erty rights of the local stockholders.
These actions have been brought for
the benefit of all such stockholders who
care to join in. They were not com
menced in the interest of any one
stockholder. This meeting of the mi
nority, as stated, was very representa
tive. The Riegels were invited to be
present then, but they respectfully de
clined. A very full and exhaustive dis
cussion of the history of Ware Shoals
mill and the conduct and acts of the
Riegels was had. As stated, we were
given full power to act. Since that
time stockholders who were not present
in person or by proxy have voluntarily
told us that they approved of the course
pursued by the plaintiffs. Not a single
one has objected or requested the with
drawal of consent as expressed at said
About the visit of Mr. Riegel here
on Saturday their comment was: "Last
week Mr. Riegel spent two or three
days in town in consultation with his
attorneys. During this time he inter
viewed privately a number of local
stockholders. A great many jiositively
and emphatically refused to sign the
statement he had prepared for them.
We do not know the nature of the
statements, nor do we know exactly
what arguments or representations
were made to those who signed. It has
no very material bearing upon the liti
"It is a little strange that Mr. Riegel,
after living in this country for over
two years and a half, should just a few
days before a motion for injunction was
to come up interfering with his schemes,
should suddenly desire to meet and be
come acquainted with his local stock
holders when heretofore he had been
earnestly requested and asked to meet
with the minority and had declined. As
a matter of Lact, he has been scouring
Laurens, Greenwood and Abbeville
counties for statements from stock
holders favoring the proposed issue of
preferred stock, and it is not improba
ble that some stockholders have signed
the same without being in full posses
sion of all the facts from both sides.
"The statement of Mr. Riegel that
he is to pay $1,000 rent for the mag
nificent $lf),0()0 house is a little amus
ing. He states that he agreed to pay
for the house, and at the directors'
meeting he said he did not want to do
so, and the majority of the directors
excused him. We had not thought that
it was the object of the cotton mill to
build this kind of houses for the pur
pose of renting them. Six of the board
of directors, by the way, are his kins
men. The local directors present voted
that he pay for the house.
"We would correct another error in
the newspaper accounts of Mr. Riegel's
visit here to the effect that the mill had
earned $200,000 jn the last 12 months.
The financial statement of the mill's
condition, dated January 31, 1908, shows
that the mill has earned, since June 30,
1907, in round numbers $81,000 and that
previous to that time it had earned
$93,000. This covers a period of about

FIAT WHAT YOU WANT
Science Has Now Found the True Way
to Cure Indigestion,
Tue first thing to do in the case of in
digestion or stomach weakness is to
strengthen the muscular walls of the
stomach/and intestines so that they will
care for the food that is eaten. In no
other way can this be done as well as
by taking a Mi-o-na tablet before each
meal. This restores strength to the
stomach muscles and stimulates the
pouring out of gastric juices, so that
the food digests readily and its nourish
ment is retained in the system to build
up energy and vitality.
Use Mi-o-na and you will have no
more sick headache, heartburn, bad
taste in t he mouth, coated tongue'spots
before the eyes, sleeplessness and the
many other symptoms that are the di
rect result of indigestion.
