LAURENS, S. C. APRIL (5, 1010.
THE COHN CLU? PRIZE KP NT).
Superintendent of Education G. I..
IMtts has pledged himself to raise $lfi0
which amount he lias coffered as priz
es to Laurens County Boys' Corn club.
One or two donations to tho fund have
been made, hut t!u> entire amount
Should be raised at once. Every farmer
and business man in the county will,
we believe, gladly and cheerfully eon
tribute something. Tho boys are now
preparing their special acre for corn,
according to instructions received from
the department at Washington. One
hundred and forty-flvo young fanners
banded togethor for tho purpose of
specializing in tho production of corn
In Laurons county means something;
and they should have, as we believe
they will all possible encourage
ment. The prizes will be awarded ac
cording to Supt. Pitts' proposition.
He Is enthusiastic over the bucccss I
in forming bucIi a largo (dub one of
the largest in tin- state. He has work- '
6(1 dllllgonlly in behalf of the club;
ho has had tho cooperation of the
farmers of tho county and of different
ngoucies In placing the organization
well to the front. Now he wants one
hundred and fifty dollars, the prize
fund, either in cash of pledges.

COLOMBIA ADOPTS NEW FLAX.
Tho City of Columbia lias adopted the
"commission form of municipal gov
ormont." By an overwhelming ma
jority the citizens of the capital <ity
Voted last Saturday to <lo away with
the oh! system which provided for the
election of a mayor at large and fif
teen council men, three chosen from i
each of the five wai .Is. The new plan.
88 provldod in an act passed at the '
last session of the general assembly,
vests the government of the city in a
commission consisting of a mayor and
four COUncilmen, all to be elected at
Jorge. The act further provides that:
"After election the the departments
of the city government will be assign
ed by the mayor each to one of the
live members of council, Including the
mayor, who shall respectively be re
sponsible for his own department. The
mayor is to receive a salary of $2.500
per year and each of the councllmon
$2,000. The terms of office are four
years. All appointments to city offices
are to be made by council from a civil 1
?ervice list, prepared by a civil ser
vice commission after proper qualifi
cations.- Heavy penalties are provided
for promising or giving jobs or money
for political service, before or after '
A vigorous campaign was conducted
by special citizens' committees and the
newspapers of Columbia for several
weeks prior to tho election, and the
victory Is considered a forward step
fn the matter of municipal government.

Some newspapers of tho State, no
tably the (lieenwood Journal, have re
cently come to the conclusion that they
are being imposed upon in the matter
of printing complimentary notices and
announce rates for all such matter not
alt icily of r.ows value. The Advertiser
adopted this policy two or three years
ago and is practicing it.

We shall not be at all surprised to
see a majority of those fourteen lads
and young men who participated In the
deelalmers' contest Friday night rep
resenting Laurons or somo other fine
county in the South Carolina legisla
ture within tho next eight or ten years.
This, however, will be merely incl
dental to their careers of public ser
vice for which they are now shaping
themselves; the others will deserve as
well nnd will doubtless write their
names high on the scroll of honor
