We have received the following In
formation: a few days ago, in a cer
tain section of the county, a friend
of The Advertiser's appronehed a fel
low citizen on the subject of subscrib
ing to this paper, and giving him the
OOUponfl and the benefit of his payment
in the great popularity contest that
The Advertiser Is now conducting.
The man approached said: "No. I do
not believe In that kind of gambling",
or words to that efTect.
Our unknown friend is laboring un
! der the weight of a mighty severe
conscience; in fact, u conscience that
creates evil. Tho world Is full
enough of wrong and vice without
these vain imaginings. While we
honor u man of conviction, and one
who will stand to his belief, wo have
but little sympathy with tin* holding
of such ideas as thai expressed ahove.
They are utterly untenable, and. wo
believe, are calculated to do harm in
destroying that sense which distin
guishes right from wrong.
in tin? first place, tho Laurens Ad
vertiser could scarcely afford to eon
duet u lottery of any kind. No paper
that values its reputation can or
would attempt it. In tlx* second
|dace, tho postal laws would forbid it.
and with the Hrsl announcement, tho
paper would In* Indicted for violation
of the law. In the third place, tin
fail that some of I.aiinois county's
very best people or.' actively partici
pating in tin' contest ought to he
evidence enough that it is alt right.
Does our unknown friend vote in
the elections of his state and tounty?
If so. does he consider that a gamble?
There is absolutely no clement of
chance, no gambling feature in this
contest Hull The Advertiser is con
ducting. We are -imply offering a
prize for the man. woman or child
who does the most and best work for
us. is there harm in contesting for
a prize? If so. the schools and Sun

MR. HOLLAND'S CH I ROES.
In another column is an article,
sinned by Mr. T. H. Holland of Scuf
lletown township, In which some ra
1 ther grave charges are made against
Superintendent of Education Geo. L.
Tilts. This Is an outcome of the now
rather famous " Long Branch school
row" which has had the attention of
the people for s( me time.
A good deal of ill feeling has been
engendered on account of the differ-,
ernes arising from the dismissal of
the trustees of the Long Branch
school and the subsequent removal of
Miss L?ne, teacher of that school.)
There are two factions in Scuflletown I
district number one: the adherents of
the unknown tongue religion and
those who oppose it. This religion
has been the cause of disrupting the
school out there: it was the cause of
division on the ta\ election some
weeks ago. and the end is not yet.
As to (he Charges Mr. Holland, in
his card, makes against the county
superintendent of education, we have
nothing to say. Mr. Pitts, we pre
sume will answer for himself: tin- col
umns of The Advortiser are open to
him in reply, JllSl as their use has
hi-en given Mr. Holland in stale his
grievances. However, we do not hes
itate to say that Mr. Holland has made
some pretty strong statements, which
if not substatiated may cause him em
barrassment. He says that "the re
port Is false from start to ilitlsh", re
ferring to the figures given by Mr.
Pitts In The Advertiser in Its issue of
j June nth of this year. lie also Insin
uates a misappropriation or misuse of
funds, and a "padding" of the school ,
From information received al this
oilioe there is considerable inlsiii uor
| standing in some sections as *?> the
conduct of affairs in the I.oiiR Branch
school since the removal of tin- trus
tees la^t spring: hence, culighlenmeiii

The Cnioil Time- of last week had
an editorial that, lo our way of think
in*.:, was one of the b/?st that has ap
peared in the public prints of South
Carolina in many a day. It was head
ed "The Tillies Loses A Friend".
That friend I ?) got mad because The
Times did not gran! him special fa
vors; he had his paper stopped. To
this "friend" we say : Some day The I
Times will contain your obituary, in'
Which all your virtues will he recited,
your sins forgotten, and your soul
wafted to heaven borne on sweet
