ORPH INAOE ENDOWMENT,
The Advertiser has received from
the Rev. .1. Ii. Branch the following
appeal which is printed in full and
earnestly commended to all our read
ers, especially those who belong to
the Ptesbjlerlan church:
The raising ot the proposed endow
ment of $100.000 for the Thorn well
Orphanage on the 9th of December
is a job for the laymen.
"The good friends of the Orphanage
in Darlington count) :.?:, the matter
out of the hands of the church so far
as their part was concerned and rais
ed as their share of the (160.000 the
sum of $2.000. Their share would
properly lave been $1,200 for there
nre only 100 Presbyterians' in that
county, hut they added JSnu to that
tor good measure, and it was the
kind of good measure that helps the
orphanage and the orphanage appre
"We are going to ask laymen in all
our churches on the 9th day of Decem
ber to pass around a subscription list
and get as large a subscription as
possible for tin' orphanage endowment
We believe that the Presbyterians are
going to swell the endowment fund
that day. We need it badly. It takes
$12,000 a year to pay the salaries and
take care of repair- and insurance on
the orphanage. Dr. Jacobs has to
raise that sum every year along with
the stun for the support fund. It Is
hoped that we shall be able to raise
the $150,000 needed In order to pay
these running expense.-.
"Pinns are being pus!: 1 to -< t lay
men In every congregaiion Interested
so that they will see their friends nnd
neighbors for the ench wment. We
hope that it will be pus' I with vigor,
as we wish to get t;.e J5.0?O offered
by the Atlanta friend who expects us
to secure $20.000 by ?' ? last of the
year, when ho win gi . us the amount
There are few, i! indeed any. Insti
tutions in thp land more deserving of
liberal support than the Thornwell
Orphanage, where so many children ?
have been, and are being, given a com
fortable Christian home and prepared
in every possible way for the battle
'The touch of a vanished hand."
cannot, alas, be recalled, but. in so
far as creature comforts, and healthful
exercise mid useful, practical lessons
in right-living ami earnest working
are concerned, tue Thornwell orphan
age comes as near to beinu a home
lor the homeless as one can well imag
Rycry dollar subscribed to this en
dowment fund is. tuere.ore, worthily
bestowed : and we bespeak for Mr.
Branch and his co-laborers, the fullest
measure ot success on the ninth of

H IM.F i ll S IN SCHOOL.
Wc note with a great deal of pleas
ure the interest that the school boys
of Laurens are caking :n athletics this
year. The assistance and encourage- 1
ment given them by the school au
thorities are noteworthy stamps of
approval that speak well for their
knowledge of what Is beneficial to the
growing boy. The bodily exercise
that the young HChotar receives dally
either on the football Held, the base
ball field or the tennis court runs al
most parallel beneficially to the mind
exercise that he receives In the class
The outdoor exercise In orery game
produces both a mental and a physl
oal development. No one, of course,
will deny that outdoor makes the
participant stronger and healthier. And
no one will deny that the robust, heal
thy child is far more capable of learn
Ing than the weak, sickly person. And
yet. without as a rule giving the sub
ject careful thought, many parents ob
| ject to their boys taking part In
; school athletics. They give as their
reason, that the afternoon should be
: devoted to study. Part of the after
noon should be but certainly not all.
From three till half past four is time
enough for any child to spend over
books in the afternoon, and from that
time until dark thev should spend
building up body and mind in play end
Many parents overlook the fact that
outdoor exercise lends to develop the
. mind, la the games of baseball end
football particularly developed as they
are almost to a science, i quick, ac
tive brain Is reqtllstO for success.
Every boy works with a will to make
that success and In his struggle for
supremacy on til" athletic Held, he
knows that the mind as well as the
body must be trained. And even
though he does not try to be a leader.
If he pi ay 8 at all. the brain action
necessary tends to develop the mind.
There have been many objections
' to foot-hall raised in regard to the
danger Incurred. I'nder the present
rules, the "rough and tumble" plays
l have been practically eliminated.
' thereby greatly lessening the chances
for injury. Of course, even now. there
Is some little danger but who admires
' a boy that hasn't tue true American
spirit of daring and boldness and his
j indifference to dang sr. Foot ball
brings out the man in hint. It pre
. pares him to tussle in the game of
I life end he will certainly find that
game harder and rougher than foot
ball can ever becoi.:\

"Only nine Candidates arc announced
for the vacant office of county auditor
, in Laurens. The salary of the office
is about $1,000 a year. No man whose
labor Is worth less 'ban three dollars
a day should be nominated for it. If
each of the nine Candidates gives 40
days to canvass for the office and
spends $i" in canvassing expenses,
the nine will spend the equivalent of
$1.1 To in a contest for a one thousand
dollar position?supposing that all o'
the nine arc equipped to fill it satis
True enough if ail the candidates
were giving their entire time to can
vassing the county. But since only
one can reap the oiu thousand dollar
reward, it's a safe bet that the majori
ty will hold tieht to what they've
already got. No premature chicken
counting for Laurens candidates .

Laurens is maintaining her repu
tation this season as one of the best
cotton markets in the l'p-country.
A comparison of prices as paid in oth
er markets proves the correctness of
this statement. And then the receipts
compare most favorably with the larg
est towns In the State. Laurens is all
right, and business Is already good
and the indications are that the sea
son will be the best In several years.
