Among the many contributions to
The Stau-* "Prosperity Smiles- are
the two letters from Waterloo and
' Cross Hill, both of whi. h are in Lau
rens county. The correspondents,
while by no means optimistic .state
that I hero is plenty to live on. The
Writer from Waterloo waxes quite
l>oetic. Tim letters are as follows:
L'outl l imes ||( Waterloo.
Waterloo. Dec. 10.?If there is such
a thing as financial depression in
South Carolina it has not yei reached
Waterloo and vicinity. The price of
cotton, which is lower than it should
be. has made il hard on some, perhaps
Ibolr demands, but on the
whole otll" people have money and are
paying their debts. ()?,? f armers are
putting their money in tlio banks to
run them another year. Our mer
chants are hard bit in some instances,
but are gelling their pai | of Ihc "tail
gihlo wherewith" without much dilti?
The merchants say they have sold
more main for sowing purposes this
year than ever before.
W ith us (be vine and the olive grow
in profusion and truly the great fields
of yellow main oats. rye. barley and
wheat bespeak a law of plenty.
Our farmers are already preparing
for another crop. Deep fall plowing
is going on. ditches and new terraces
being made. New grounds are beim,'
cleared, the wood hauled to town and
turned into money. Kggs and chick,
ens bring a good price and turkeys
are I.". ends per pound.
Our fanners have porkers in tin
pen and home made fat hacks and
hams hanging in the smokehouse.
Thus it will be seen that our people
soine of them at least?art* begin
ning to realize the value of home liv
ing and to raise "hog and hominy".
Wo have all learned to look upon them
as the twins of South Carolina pro
duets. Who has not fell Its Influence?
Have you not quaffed the aromatic
elixor ami seen visions and dreamed
dreams more than mortal? In the
nectarine depths of "hog and hominy"
WO see pictures of gl'OCII fields and
blossoming hedge rows and the blue
smoke curling upward from hupp}
collage homes. Away with the cry.

Cross Hill. Doc. iii.- Tln re is not
exactly a "wave of prosperity" in
this section, but on the other hand
our people have plenty to run 01) for
nnothi >? year. our merchants are
got ting in their collections, and our
farmers are paying their debts; our
doctors are visiting the sick and col
lecting I licit' money, and our children
are going to school. What more.

The low price of cotton, together
With a Short corn crop, is account
aide for the cry of "bard times" that
is hoard in some sections. We have
croakers and chronic grumblers here.

Water Well Drillers
Are Honey Makers.
Everybody uses water. A drilled
well is the only means of obtaining a
pure, cold and unfailing supply. Dug
wells and springs are simply eess pools
for collecting disease breeding surface
drainage. 85 per cent, of Typhoid
I-ever is contracted from bad water.
A Keystone Drill will penetrate the
bed rock and tap the pure, unfailing;
streams below. All surface water is
securely cased off. A drilled well
rarely goes dry in the most protracted
drouth. 11 is safe,
There is more money in r. Keystone
Drilling Outfit than in a Threshing
Machine and you work all the year
round instead Of three months out of
twelve. Machine is the most complete
on the market and must not be con
founded with cheap and flimsy outfits,
Drills a ('inch hole through any forma
tion to any desired depth at the rate of
Mi feet a day in ordinary formations.
Costs $5.00 a day to run in fuel
and labor. Will go anywhere under its
own steam ami can be sol up ami put
to work in ,'wl-minutes.

weeks, and nothing tho doctor pro
scribed did a bit. of good, and we were

At this time we commenced to give
her Vinol, and tho effect was marvel

progress, and when wo told him wo
wore giving her Vinol, he replied, 'It
