Wo will have to again call to tho
attention of our correspondents and
contributors the necessity of signing
their names to communications. We
received for this issue an article with
out any name signed to it and of
course we had to lay it aside. We
are obliged to stick to our rule of
not publishing articles when the writ

We hear whisperings of a base ball
league composed of a number of towns
In this section: Abbeville. Greenwood,
New berry, Chester, Clinton and Lau
rens In South Carolina, and Blberton
and Athens In Georgia arc the men
tioned towns. This is a mighty good
idea and one which will most proba
bly meet with hearty support in each I
place. It would be well for those who
are most Interested to call a meeting
here and discuss the proposition from
the Lauren; standpoint.

We are sending out today notices to
those subscribers to the Advertise'-,
whose subscriptions expire at this
lime and some who have let their pa
lter run over a little bit. As this entails
a great deal of work and expense, wo i
would nsk that ihoy i>e given Imme
diate Attention. As these statements
were goth n up several days ago in
Order that they might no out on the
lirst of the mouth, there may be some
to rt ceive them who have paid up ill
themenntime, '!;-.<:.v who are so noti
fied will pi l?se disregard them.

Jusl now while the streets and
roads ate cu! up and I'OUgh from us
age following the rain.;, would be a
splendid Um i to try tho spilt log drag.
Ii has a wonderfully smoothing and
packing effect. Has beeil tried around
Laurens and Is said 10 mere than pay
for the labor and trouble lit Improv
ing the highway. Let tho empty wag
ons coming to town try the drag and
BOO ho\v it works. Then when loadod
for home, ? take ir oil a-; ballast, or
leave It in town for another trip, This
will do away with bad sinks or ruts:.
That's a mighty timely suggestion,
Whon thfl Wagons are being brought
to town at this time to haul fertilizers,
If the fanners would only get togeth
er and drag the roads and not wait
for their neighbors to do It. much
good could he done. But as long as
one man waits on another to do the
work, nothing will be accomplished.
Wouldn't it bo Hno if every farmer
In the county would use the split-log
drag in front of his home for just a
few hundred feet to see how It works.
That would be great, for If It was
started we are quite sure it would be
followed up, Suppose some good farm
er take the lead and drag the roads
in front of his house and make his
neighbors so ashamed of himself that
he will undertake the same thing.
Somebody try it!

TIIK FACTORY INSPECTORS.
Although the action of Gov. Blease
in .vetoing the factory Inspector ap
propriation was intended as another
mothod of fooling the people of the
mills and farms Into thinking that he
< Is their real friend, It has possibly
! done more towards discrediting him
I with that class of his former support
j era than any other of his many very .
near sighted acts. Although wo do]
not bei love- that the doing away with j
j these inspectors for one year will so- j
I riously hamper the good work that '
: has been heretofore done in alleviat- j
ing the condition of the children In !
j the mill villages, we do believe that !
this act on the part of the governor
will show him up in his true light to j
i those who he has heretofore made to
j believe were his friends. When Clov.
Bloase makes the assertion that every
1 man and woman over the age of twon
ty-ono yaars can look out for him or
herself, he really shows that lie has
'not got iit heart the interest of the,
working people; lor everybody knows
j that unless the corporations are streu -
guarded against, In most eases they
can and Will take advantage of their]
. If by vetoing this measure OoV.
Illease had caused the child labor law
I to become inactive, what class of tli>'
people of the mill villages would he
have aided? Would ho have aided the
hard-working laboring man. who by j
: the sweat of his brow is able to feed
and clothe his family and place him
j self in a position to educate bis chil
dren? No! This is not the class. They
need little protection. The men that
' this law is intended to guard against
, are those la/.y. trilling, grown-up men ,
who hang around the mills, chew to
bacco, swap yarns, talk politics and
let the children work amid the spin- j
i dies and looms to furnish support
for the family. Perhaps they are the
ones that he wishes to ph ase. He can
not hope to please any of the others.
But, Oov. illease has decided, re- '
: cently, that the liquor constables are .
I to do the factory Inspection work.
They mlghl do the work satisfactorily,
I but they are. as a ride, not fitted for
it and are not In sympathy with the 1
Whether t.uo whiskey constables
succeed in doing the work w ?11 or not,
or whether the children are returned
to the mills or not, Oov. Illease has
shown where his hear! lies In his
dealings with the laboring people and
doubtless they will refute hi pi two;
