Soon the military company of Lau*
reua will have one of the best armories
ill tbo State, convenient and tally
equipped. And nut only this, but
the young people .have an exception
ally good dance ball, the changes and
Improvements being made to that end
as well as for the accomodation oi
th<- company. Captain Uabb took
the Reporter on a trip of inspection
one day this week and ho was agreea
bly surprised al the new work now in
progress, and the excellent plans for
a better nrnmny and a more pleasant
place of amusement.
In addition lo the new lloor room
recently added, a third story over the
front of the hall is being fitted Up for
rooms, one ;> store room for military
supplies and tlie other for a ladies'
dressing room. Theso will be well
equipped for their purposes and the
walls of the entire hall are to he
re-calclmliu d. A number of good
portraits have been donated, with
Which the hall is to )><? decorated.
And it may he stated that the Com
pany will gladly receive tiny other
donations' in this line that may be
made. The desire is to lit tin- halls
for plea-.ant occupancy, und tin- co
operation of the pcoplo is solicited.
By a special Act of the legislature,
recently secured by Representative
Sullivan the county win appropriate
$100 a year for rent, und it is under
stood that the company will receive
nbotlt $150.00 from tin- city. So the
Traynhain Uuards are on the upward
road to prosperity?they are already

Do all the people realize that we
have, right here in I.aurens, one <e
the best furniture factories In the
South? Not so large in proportions,
hut unexcelled in the quality of goods
turned out. The New York furni
ture TardO review, of recent date
says that the goods manufactured by
the I.aurens Furniture Factory are
manufactured south of Huston. That's
a compliment, not only for the owners
of the factory to be pruud of hut. for
every citizen of I.aurens. Let's he
proud; it's not a dog gon hit cd' harm
to he proud?-cultivate the habit.
Some days ago the Reporter saw
a man cutting wood right here on the
public square: had the wood dumped
right on the street in front of tin
purchaser's place of buisness and
proceeded to CUl it U|) Slid store il
away. Now, there's not a hit of
damage done to the streets and nobody
suffered, except some of those who
like to see things done right and in
order. Lau reit s is a city now, and
culling wood in tin- square is not at
all citified. The hack yard is the
correct location for wood cutting.
n the other streets of the city don't
watch out. South Harper is going "to
lay 'em In the shade.'" to use tin
vernacular ot the street wag. There
are some of the prettiest residence
and lilies) walks over in that pail

neighbor, how about that uld fence in

of civic pride tear it down and build

They tell us that the policemen are
going to look after the cow buisness
now. Housekeepers and property
owners are justified in their wrath at
the doprldatlons wrought by these
COWS that are allowed to roam around
here at will. It Is discouraging to
try to have a pretty front yard, and
have a COW cotlio along during the
llighl and destroy your handiwork.
Tltoy say "Pick" I(Hilgens can fix
any thing thai was ever broken and
make anything that's makeable. it
must be so for the Reporter heard a
lady say. a few days since, thai she
guessed she'd have lo gel 'Pick'' to
make her a dress as all the dress
makers of the city WOrC busy.
The I'Jurekn Foundry and Supply Co
Is building a large ami commodious
building on South Harper street
directly on the railroad and hutting

ami better business. The railroads
are going to put the needed tracks
and when completed the place is go
ing to be strictly up-to-date

step one day a little book in which 1
soon bec.un ? very muc h interested.
My little girl of five y? ars of age had
been troubled for a long time with
loss of appetite, extreme m rvoitsnoss
and undue fatigue. She was all ruu
down and in a very delicate condition.
"This little hook was very compre
hensively written, and told of the new
method of extracting the medicinal ele
ments of the cod:; liver from the oil,
eliminating the obnoxious oil which Is
ko bard for children to take.
" Just the thing.' said I, 'for my little
daughter/ and 1 immediately went for
a bottle of Vlnol. It helped her won
derfully. She has gained rapidly in
tlesb and strength, and bbe does not
take cold half so easily.

gviod it has done hcu, and I hope other

ailing children will be Is nefited by my
experience and Jusl givo \ lliol U trial."
