Why does Great Brltian buy
its oatmeal of us?
Certainly it seems like carrying
coals to Newcastle to speak of exert
ing oatmeal to Scotland and yet, every
Jrear the Quaker Oats Company sends
umdreds of thousands of cases of
Quaker Oats to Great Britiau and
The reason is simple; while the
English and Scotch have for centuries
eaten oatmeal in quantities and with a
regularity that has made them the
most rugged physically, and active
mentally o( all people, the American
has been eating oatmeal and trying all
the time to improve the methods of
manufacture so that he might ^ct that
desirable foreign trade. ?
How* well he has succeeded would
be seen at a glance at the export re
ports on Quaker Oat8. This brand is
without a rival; is packed in regular
packages, and in hermetically sealed
tins (or but climates. 51

To the Bdltor of The Advertiser:
One of the popular subjects now be
lore the public seems to he: What pal'
licular thing would add most to th
welfare, tho upbuilding of any give;
_ town? As applied to Laurent) ther
are doubtless different opinions an
view points. Some perhaps be! lev
the building of additional cotton mill

should have llrst consideration. Thes
- would at once add to the materia
II wealth at th" city and provide employ
'. ment for hundreds of new citizens. Th
s volume of business would be Increas
s ed. property values enhanced and th
city limits no doubl extended by rea
son of these Improvements.

Ab a citizen of the town I am exceed
ingly anxious to nee old Laurens grov
and expand along all lines. I say, le
no opportunity pass by that promise)
results in this direction.
During the past three or four yean
thousands of dollars have been invest
od ill homes, new residences, bushiest
offices and public buildings hav<
Sprung up at a steady rate, much per
mauent street Improvements, repre
senting a Idg outlay of the people'
money, have been made, and by reasoi
of these forward steps Laurens has at
traded state wide attention and i
looked upon as one of the best town
in the Piedmont.
There is, however, one saugest ioi
I should like to make with reference t
this building enterprise. Most all th
new residences and cottages are mod
cds of latest architectural design an
are therefore comfortable and attrac
tive, from this standpoint. Hut i
there not a noticeable lack of elvi
pride in the matter of keeping then
new and attractive by the appllcatio
of plenty of paint? There are quit
a number of new houses that hav
not been painted and others that ar
rapidly becoming dingy and unsightl
because of the lack at the proper tlm
of a new coat. Paint is cheap, mud
cheaper than lumber; it is a preserva
the and there is nothing which add
so much to the appearance and genera
attractiveness of a home.
Let this matter or painting be givoi
more attention and your houses wil
be as good as new many years afte
those allowed to go unpainted hovt
fallen Into decay. If your resideno<
and fences need a fresh coat of pain
there is no better season than tlu
present for making the improvement
After yours has been done all tlx
neighbors will fall in line ami sooi
your particular section of the towt
emerges anew as it were, more attrac
tive and inviting than ever.
