Traveling men are a very influentia
class of citizens-if they want to l>c.
There was a young fellow here this
week from Charlotte X. ('. and Char
lotte just, oozed out of < v.-ry h s very
pores. Yet, he was not tiresome; he
believed in his town, loved it, and
* talked about it in a manner pleasing
to all who heard him. He was an ex
cellent advertiser; ho was a member
of the "Greater Charlotte Club". Aral
if every traveling man out of tho North
Carolina city is as great a booster as
this man, Charlotte will soon be the
size of New York. Relieve in your
town and then talk it.
And by the way this same fellow
from Charlotte is a near-poet and on
some occasions writes "things" for a
little paper up there called "The
Observer... That's the only objection
to the kid; he is under the influence
of that,,perverter of historical facts,,
ami believes in the Mecklenburg Myti .
Otherwise he is a first rate fellow.
There is a movement on foot to or
ganize a'country club in these parts?a
mighty good thing too. Think it over,
ye automohilists, dancers, tennis play
ers, golfers, and devotees of other
sports. Some one will see you soon
about becoming a member. It's the
thing; Laurens needs it.
The Reporter has talked with num
bers of people about the liquor situation
here and the consensus of opinion is
that Laurens is immeasureahly better
oil' now t han last fall. Several have said
that there are some old topers in the
county who have actually not had a
drink since November, and are to all
outward appearances reformed. And
those who are in a position to know
say that there is very little liquor being
shipped into Laurens. Keep it up.

.lust think of how many people from
this city and the surrounding' country
who have been in the Columbia hospital
this year. Laurens needs it hospital.
The King's Daughters have worked
hobly toward that end. bul at the pros

Mr. Merchant: when yon advertise in
the Laurens Advertiser you reach just
about T.?Otl people a<.I'dlng 16 the
standard of estimating newspaper
readers. Circulars and hand bill'! are
all very well for a speedy announce

and best way t<< reach the people is to

the largest, best circulation of a:y
papOrin the county.
Mr. Subscriber: The Advertiser Is
living up to the letter of the postnl law
which requires it to cut oir all sub
scribers w ho are in ni rears more than
one year. So If your paper do< H not
