LAURENS, 8. C. MARCH !?, 1010.
RUNNING KOK THE LEGISLATURE.
Twenty-live years ago when the hue '
and cry was raised in this state that '
"ring rule" was in the ascendancy,
one of the little side yelps was that
Charleston county had too much power
in the Legislature and was ruling the
commonwealth. That Charleston coun
ty had more power than other counties
was trus but tin* explanation in the
main part of it. was plain. Beginning
with IS7S or 1880 when the Democrats
regained control In Charleston, the
county sent to the Legislature such
men as the late Charles H. Simonton,
Edward McCrady, Rudolph Slelging,
Qeorge Lamb Uulst and Augustine T.
Smythe, VV. II. Urnwloy, .lames Simons,
.lohn F. Picken and Simeon Hyde and
kept them there year alter year and
term after term. There were few
weak men in the Charleston delega
tion in those days ntid any of the men
named would have been prominent and
Influential in the Congress oi* the
United Stntes, iust as they wore in the
Legislature. Of course they exerted
Immense power. Trained brains can't
be kepi down anywhere. Other coun
ties sent able men but it was seldom
that one of their representatives re
mained in oflb e more than two or four
years. After IS'lll Charleston ceased
to send powerful delegations, though
a few good men were scattered In i
them, consequently the county's in
fluence decreased. Spartanburg coun
ty, which has twice the Democratic
vote that Charleston has, commands
little more influence in the Legisla
ture than does the average county for
the reason that no Spartanburg man
serves more than two terms and the'
really big men of tl"> county, barring
rare exception:!, refuse to go into poli
A strong delegation in the Leglsln.
turo is of great value to a county and
ft weak delegation is a handicap to it.
This applies not only to political af
fairs but to business. Were the state
about to establish a new college or
other Institution, the county without
strong men In the Legislature would
have little chance to secure it. Some
of these days, five years or twenty-live
years hence, South Carolina may adopt
a policy of state highway building and
the county with influential legislators |
will have the better chance to obtain
a part of the assistance flrst.
The Legislature Is the most Import
ant body In the state. We laugh at '
it and make jokes at its expense but It
is the real government of the state;
it is the starting and creating point
in state, county and city government '
nnd nowhere else can a good man do
so much for his people as there. No
man is really a worthy citizen if busi
ness selfishness prevents him from
running for the Legislature and the'
truth is thai the man who Is too big
to go into politics Is actually very
What the people ought to learn is
that when men of character and brains
offer for the Legislature they confer
a favor upon the people and the voters
ought to encourage such men to enter
the primaries. Such men do not like
to run for Office because they resent
being placed in the position of beggars
when they know it to be a false posi
tion. At the same time, the best men
are those who will serve their county
and their state however they are made
to appear that they are seeking pre
ferment though they know that they
oro doing nothing of the kind.

THE SPLIT LOG OR DRAG.
In another column of today's issue
of The Advertiser appears a communi
cation calling Upon the farmers, par
ticularly the land owners of the coun
ty, to give a little of their time "to
dragging the roads on your land."
This is Important and timely. The
roads are said to be tn very bad con
dition and it will be several months
boforo the different gang forces can
get over them. Meantime most of the
heavy travel, the hauling of guano and
othor farm supplies will bo finished
within the next few weeks.
The use of the split log or drag as
a rapid and altogether satisfactory
method of Improving road conditions
at certain seasons Is .10 longer an ex
periment even In Laurens county.
Supervisor Humbert has . tested its
practicability and has to a limited ex
tent adopted the plan, ?ut for the
laek of equipment in tho way of stock
ho cannot, of course, cover the roads
of the entire county as the nature of
tho work demands in order to get the
Our correspondent explains the slm
i pie device and urges the Immediate

Deafness Cannot bo Cared.
by local aplicatlons, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to euro deafuoss
and that Is by constitutional retnodtes.
1 Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucousllning of tho Bus
: tacblan Tube. When this tube is in
' flamed you have a rumbling sound of
imperfect hearing, and when it Is en
tirely closed Deafness is the result,
and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
'destroyed forever; nine cases out of
> ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is
nothing but an inflnmed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
