LACHENS, S. C. MARCH 2, 1010.
With last week's Issue of The Adver
tiser Mr. S. B. Honey's connection with
the paper ended. As evidenced hy the
expressions in a number o( communi
cations in thai Issue Mr. Honey will he
greatly missed by the readers of The
Advertiser, and it can also he said that
he will be greatly missed by those of us
who are responsible for the "getting
out" of the paper.
During the past two years Mr. Honey
has been an important factor in m?k
ln;.? The Advertiser one of the very
best county papers In the state. VVo
we're pleased with him as the editor of
The Advertiser and delighted with his
charming personality, it goes with
out saying that wo predict for him a
successful career on the News & Couri
er anil shall watch with interest his,
certain advancotnc nt.
In the meantime The Advertiser will I
continue to glvo to its readers ;.ll the
news of the county in readable and at-'
tractive form; and wo hope to continue
to grow and expand to the credit o!
our city and county.

AS TO "HOME RULE."
Concerning the candidacy of Mr.
Featherstone for governor one of two
facts are outstanding. Mr. Foathor
Btone is the cniy candidate who has
always boon a prohibitionist. A ma
jority of the people koted for prohibi
tion in ls'.?- and their wishes were
thwarted hy the establishment of the
Btnte dispensary. The latter Institu
tion postponed prohibition and but
for it prohibition would have been
enacted nearly is years ago. Through
out his political career and until the
State dispensary was abolished hy the
legislature Mr. .lohn G. Richards advo
cated and defended that institution; he
was a last ditch defender of it. Mr.
Richards is a good man, at least we
think so. He is 40 years old or up
ward hut lie Is a prohibition colt, horn
three years ago and barely broken to
prohibition harm s ?.
The other candidates are not pro.
hlbltionists; hut what are they? What
the platform of Mr. 01 ease is we don't
know, hut the gentlemen who are run
nlpg as local optionists and confining
the options to county dispensaries and
county prohibition have chosen nar
row ground to stand on. Six counties
now sell liquor. It Is not ascertained
that any one of the six prefer the
county dispensary plan to high license.
There Is abundant reason to believe
that one of them. Charleston, is about
as much opposed to county dispensa
ries as It is opposed to prohibition and
it is probable that Rlchlnnd feels the
same way about the question. Con
sequently, the candidates who will
charge that Mr. Featherstone would
deny "home rule" to six counties con
vict themselves of simlar intolerance
unless they are ready to urge that the
six counties have leave to choose be
tween high license, county dispensa
ries and prohibition.
Mr. Fentherstone's position Is at
least clear cut and fully defined, lie
is a prohihltlonlst. opposed to the I
liquor traffic In all its forms. His
platform is free of compromises and
contradictions. He Is running against ;
one or more candidates who would al
low counties to sell whiskey If they !
wish but not in the way that they wish
?who would deny to counties the
right to sell by any other method than
the county dispensary plan. In Its
essence their plan Is not less opposed
to home rule and local self-govern
ment than is stato wide prohibition.

SHALL WE HELP OURSELTE SI
Eight years ago the writer In a
speech at Trinity chruch this county
roamed far enough Into the domain
of prophecy to predict that within ten
years electric railway lines would con
nect the towns and villages of Lau
rens and other Piedmont counties. Ho
bad begun to despair lately that the
prophecy would he realized but the en
trance of the Dukes Into the field of
electric traction in Western South Car
olina makes the condition such that If
the predicttlon be not realized the fault
'will He with the people.
The trolley lines will be built. They
?will be built first where the people are
willing to help most. The people will
not be expected to holp a great deal
anywhere but they will bo asked to
put up perhaps one fourth of the nec
c?sary capital?enough to show that
they wish to have trolley lines.
Indifference of the people will post
pone the building of a trolley line to
Laurens from Groonvlllo or Spartan
burg another ten years. Ten years of
postponement will set Laurena twenty
years back as comparod with towns
that get the trolloy lines now.
Land is most valuable in I>aurens
county In the sections whore there aro
the most white people to buy it. The
land in the sections that have trolley
lines will ho in twice the demand that
it is now. It is seldom that high priced
land Is owned by other than good citi
zens. To make $50 an acre land profi
table It must bo Industriously and
carefully cultivated and cared for. The
building of an electric line from
Greenville to Clinton would double the
value of every acre in a belt several
miles wide between the two towns.
It would in a few years double the
population of the territory that It
A strip of land hvo miles broad ex
tending from Greenville to Clinton
contains, exclusive of the towns, about
150,000 acres which at $20 the acre
are worth now $3,000,000. Build a
trolloy line through them and they
will be worth $;">0 the acre or in the
This is to say that if the people will
contribute some hundred of thousand
of dollars they will make a profit in
a few years of one thousand per cent,
on the investment, if that statement
has the sound of a fairy story, it is
just as well to remember that the
avorago value of lands has doubled
or trebled in Laurens county in the
last few years anyway. The South is
now at the beginning of its prosperity
?taking the first todd?ng and uncer. I
tain steps towards immense wealth.
The peoplo who have sense enough to
realize this and take advantage of it
are the people who will reap the rich
est harvests first.
The poople ol* Laurens have invest
ed a million dollars in manufactures
in the last 15 year.-. Those millions
have brought thousands of new peo
ple into the county. Every man who
lives In the territory of the trolley
line will bo a contributor to its in
come and will save money for himself
too. In indirect dividends an electric
line giving quick, pleasant and cheap
passenger and light freight transpor- 1
tat ion between Greenville and Clinton
through Laurens will yield $10 where
the mills yield one. In diroCf, divi
dends the line should pay fully as
well as a cotton mill. Primarily, we
built the mills for the Indirect divi- j
(lend; because We wanted to build
the town. Will we close our eyes and
shut our oars to an opportunity ten '
times as attractive??II.

HOG, COttX and COTTON.
One hundred pounds of hog alive
arc worth ten dollars and three hun
dred pounds of hog are worth half a
hale of cotton when cotton is worth
twelve cents the pound. Two three
hundred pound hogs are therefore
equal to a halo of twelve cents the
pound colon. The llklihood, mean
while. Is considerably greater that
cotton will drop to ten cents the pound
than that hog will drop below ten
cents the pound.
The boys' corn clubs that are being
organized in this state are bringing
It to pass that two pounds of corn
mny be produced for the same cost
that one pound of corn has hereto
fore been produced. Halving the
price of raising corn will halve the
price of raising hog approximately.
By the education of the boys in cor
rect methods of farming !t will be
easy to raise six hundred ooiinds of
hogs, which is to say a bale of cotton,
nt the cost of raising a three hundred
pound hog or a half bale of cotton
The boys of today will be men to
morrow. The education of the farm
ers nnd farmers' boys will make th's
the richest and the haplest land i*i the
world. Any country with plenty of
rich and happy farmers Is sure to bo
a wholesome and happy country?one

"Southern Farmers' Opportunity.'*
The stock of money In this country
Is today approximately $3,130,000,000.
Ten years ago It was $2,340,000,000.
This Is a gain of $790,000,000, or ap
proximately 30 per cent.
Authoritative statistics show that
the 1909 wheat crop was 8.3 bushels
per capita, against 8.63 bushels per
capita ten years ago; the corn crop
dropped from 34.9 tnd 30.9 bushels per
capita; the oats cropt from 12.4 to 11.1
bushels per capita; the hay crop from
1 ton to 3-4 of a ton per capita; and
the number of food animals, swine,
cattle and Bhoop, fell from 2.5 to 1.0
In the matter of meats the govern
ment returns Issued on tho 25th of
January shows, under the head of
swine (hogn) that t'ir> 'n'ni supplies
In 1900, of 54,000,000 fell to 47,000,000
in 1910, a decrease of nearly 15 per
cent. Other cattle. In 1909, 49,000,000
fell to 47,000,000 in 1910.
The number of cnttle killed under]
the inspection law In tho United \
States In 1907 was 7,621,717. In 1909
It had fallen to 7.325,337; during the
same period there was an increase In
the number of calves killed from 1,
763.574 to 2,046,713. The receipts of
hogs at the markets fell 13.8 per cent,
from 1908 to 1909. When the panic of j
1907 came on many of the farmers In
the West sold their hogs because food
was too high to feed them and these [
brooding herds have not been replaced. I
In the matter of the production of \
fruits, the leading and standard (be
cause it keeps longer) apples. In the
United States, have fallen from 68,
000,000 barrels In 1S66 to 21.000,000 j
harreis in 1900!
Here is money, per dollar, decreas
ing in its purchasing power becauso
of a 80 per cent. Increase In volume.
Here is an increasing deficit In the
Held food crop per capita.. Here is
a marked decrease In hogs and cattle
supply. Here is a decrease in the,
leader among all the fruits (apples)
of approximately To per cent.
On the top of all this is an average
tariff of CO per cent, on 8*1 foreign
As result of all these things?the in
creased supply of money, the decreas
ed supply of all food stuffs, and the i
tariff?-the prices of beef, pork, and
Its by-products, mutton, chickens, |
eggs, butter and milk, and all other i
food products?taken on an average
have never been as high as now, barr
ing of course the war prices of the
60 s. Is not this the Southern farmer's
The Teleghaph has shown in pre
vious articles that in 1S60. when the
population in Georgia was 1,057,286
there were in this State 2,036,116 hoks.
In 1907, with a population of 2,700,000 'j
there were only 1,599,000 hogs. With
in the opulatlon fore than dubled, the
number of hogs has been reduced
The Telegraph has shown that, In
I860, there were 299.6S8 milk cows. In
1907, 30S.00--an Increase only of 8,
312. That In 1860, there were oxen
and other cattle, 706,194. In 1907, '
680,000?decrease of 26,194! That In
1860, there were 512.618 sheep. In
1907, 269,000?a decroase of 343,618!
These figures are surprising, and yet
they are based on actual statistics ,
The Telegraph has shown that In
1890, when Georgia's farmers owned
1,627.008 swine. In 1907, when the
population had increased to 2,700,000
the swine owned by Georgia farmers
decreased to 1.599.00?a loss of 28,
008. That In 1909, the sheep owned by j
Georgia farmers numbered 111,876. In ,
1907 they had decreased to 269,000?
a loss of approximately one.half! That '
In 1890. Georgia owned 354,618 milch
cows. In 1907 the number tell to 308,- \
000?a loss of 46,616.
All of these figures are amazing?
but they are collected from the most
reliable sources. They call to the
farmer with Irreslstable eloquence and
force. They cry aloud to them to plant
less cotton and more grain; to raise
more cattle and hogs?not ns a patri
otic thing, but as a profit-making busi
ness. It is the farmer's opportunity. 1
His day has come if he Is wise enough
to read the signs of the times and
take advantage of It.
Food Is the first and the last of the
natural man. All men must eat. Ev
erything else Is secondary. Wo can
go naked and live In tho woods as the
heathens do, but we must oat. It takes
a pound of cotton to buy a pound of
meat. A pound of meat can be raised
more cheaply than a pound of cotton.
A farmer can eat his meat but he
cannot eat his cotton.
Tho money supply has grown faster
than the food supply. Tho farm pro
duction for the last four years have
been low In comparison with the in
crease in other forms <?r value. Man
ufacturing enterprises, manufactured
materials stock and bond corpora
tions have more than tripled in value
In ten years. The farmers have not
kept pace.?Macon (Qa.) Telegraph.
