Verily, it is one campaign after an- ,

It would he a great addition to the

their proper place the garbago can.

The prompt and accural j handling
of the election returns last night is
duo largely to the good work of the
telephone operators. The conve
nient system used by The Advertiser
for giving the returns to the public
was due mainly to the kindness of the
Opera House company, who gave the
hall free. To all of these we wisli to
extend our thanks.

We are also indebted to our county
correspondents ami to sevt rnl of our
friends here in town for the valuable

Cole 1.. Please will be the next
governor. Here's hoping that, by a
remarkable change of tactics, he will
make South Carolina as good a gover
nor as he has repeatedly promised.
Mr. Please e rtaiuly has the intellect
and the talents to make a good leader
and our only hope of a decent govern
ment is that ho will turn these qual
ities in the right direction.

It is now squarely up to the City
council to "gel busy" and complete'
the work necessary to give the town ;
free city delivery. The government
granted Laurens the right to have this :
addition to our postal system over a I
year ago when the postofllco receipts
here were sufficient to entitle the town
to It. The only remaining require
ments to he fullfllled are the naming
of streets and the numbering of the
houses. The city is certainly able to'
afford the rather small sum required
to do this. We realize thai the city
treasury is not overflowing, hut cer
tainlng so important an addition to
our postofllco sorvh ?> should no! he

"LUST M K l'<>Kt> LT."
It li not often that a community so
enlightened and r.'lined is compelled
to silently submit lo such an arraign
ment as appoared last week In another
column of this paper with reference
to cemetery desecration 111 Laurens.
Put. when the accusation i< so ab
solutely true (and withal so kindly in
tone) i; Is not enough to simply hang
our heads and say: "Guilty as
it is one thing to negatively allow
to arise the conditions therein so ac
curately sei forth. It is another and
an entirely different thing to knowing
ly permit such conditions to continue
after they have been plainly brought
to public notice.
This, we take it. is exactly the spirit
which impels the Civic League to clr.
eulate a paper hearing the following
"For the purpose of properly en
closing the Laurens graveyard by
providing on the street side, a rock
retaining wall four feet high and
eighteen Inches thick and above it a
steeply slanting green sod on up to the
top of the embankment; on the other
three boundry lines, a substantial
four-foot fence (of high, closely
placed patlngs or strong close-woven
wire); at the entrance, a substantial
gate which shall be securely locked
every night, I agree to give the amount
stated opposite my name, provided:
1st. that the city authorities lend their
assistance to the ladles who have taken
the Initiative In this all-Important
matter. 2nd. that the actual work on
the Improvements above described be
commenced not later than September
L'Oth, 1910, and be completed at the
Brat possible moment thereafter."
It is not Within the power of every
one of us to contribute a large amount;
but. in suc h a matter, tlie same total
sum freely given by the community at
large is worth ten times over what It
would be worth if donated in bulk by
a few enthusiastic individuals.
There Is room for all on this vidi
of honor; and the widow's mit - is
as welcome as the rieb man's mor. .
For the good name of l.aureus,
therefore, and in behalf of civie right
eousness, It is our plain duty to carry
out the injunction which the Inscrip
tion on one shaft thus simply hut
"We loved them in life.
Let us not forget them in death."
