THE GLASS FACTORY.
With the issuance Monday of a char
ter for the glass factory Laurens
branches out into a manufacturing
Held that is filled with opportunities.
The business men of l^aurens are
wide-awake to the more advantageous
commercial enterprise - and no enter,
prise that has evei been launched
here has a brighter future than this
There are many reasons why the
capital stock should be subscribed at
once. This enterprise is not a com
mercial adventure. It is certain to
pay and handsomely. The various
new uses to which glass is being put
has caused the consumption to be
far greater than the production. The
glass factories located in U:r south,
and there are only three, are financial
-im sses and the continued Increase
In demand for this material gives
promise Of still greater success,
Di sides being, directly, a sound bus
iness Investment, the class factory
will be o valuable csset to the town.
Its location 1 ere moans a certain In
crease In population, it means tho
coming here of a larpe number of
v?u-pa id employees, men Of the high
es class for such work necessitates
ski.led artisans, It means fewer emp
ty houses, better ami increased trade
foi the merchant and. as with every
new enterprise, a general prosperity.
The books of subscription are now
op-n. If you care to make a sound
Invi -u .em for yourself and at the
same i'n<' a sound Investment for
Laurens place your name among the
subscribers to the capital :,tock.
"NIK LACHENS COTTON MARKET.
Th> re was a reaction in the cotton
market yesterday, the price of the sta
ple having advanced from 13 1-2 to
I i cents during the day. Laurens
was paying the top of the market and
will continue to pay it.
Now, In this connection It may be''
well enough to say that because of
the decline In the market last week.
In New York. August:) and other mark
ets as veil as Laurens, there has been
a disposition on the part of many of >
our people, both town and county to .
?'knock'' Laurens. it heir,,- claimed that |
oth< . points in end out of the county
were paying more. This was a mis
tak n Idea, Those who take the trou
ble to keap u;> with the daily cotton i
quotations know that t:..'s market has
paid the limit every clay since the >"n
soh opened, it is not difficult to k? >|
th dally run of th* . r o of the sta
Wagon want all the cotton they can
get and pay. the market price for it
There |g sharp Competition in a mar
ket of the importance of Laurens, and
this season is no exception in this
respect. If there is a combination
among the buyers, the apparent agf.
mcnt is to nay ? .. ??p ??;e market'
all the time
Of Course Wfl do llOt criticise the
cotton producers for wanting all their
cotton will brine on any market, (he
proper sampling and grading and
weighing of each and every bale; and
all these considerations should be ac
corded every man who offers his cot
ton for sale in Laurens. We believe
he gets fair and Impartial treatment
In thJpse respects at the hands of the
us buyers, weighers and ware
housemen. If not, then register a
strorjg complaint: knock the market
and ?'demand equal prices, careful
handling and accurate weighing; but
be sure beforehand t'.iat .. on have Just
catase of complain. Business is busi
ness, and from many standpoints there
should be no juggling of the cotton
situation in I^aurens.
? . .
Pairs are being held in nearly every
county in the State and ?he grand
climax Will be the State Fair in Co
lumbia next week. They are fine in
(Mentions of the State's progresslveness
and the day Is not so far off when the

The new depot will be unveiled in

over the county, continues to hold its
own among the markets of the larger

With the disposition of the county
auditor's campaign and election..it is
expected that the municipal campaign
will be launched. There's no dull
season politically in Laurens. Mayor
Babb has stated that he will stand
for reelection, and so far no opposi
tion to him for the honor has betn
suggested. He is completing his sec.
