In offering for sale SLT^O.Oo Park
er Cotton Mills Co.. 7 per cent guaran
teed stock. Curtiss S Sauger, of Hos
ten in describing the stock wliich is
for sale, say that "tin* average earn
ings of the constituent companies for
the past live years have been five times
the annual dividend requirement."
While we admit our lack of knowl
edge of the intricacies of the stock
brokerage and mill business, It seems
to^cs that the mills have not been
Laving such a bard time in the past
'five years after all and that the con
tinued cry of curtailment on account
of sluggish trade conditions and the
high price of cotton Is more of a bluff
to pull down the price of cotton than
? ? ?
We pcoplo Of Lau; ns could WOll
rake a lesson from the trade boosters
from Charleston who visited here Fri
day. It Is a well known fact that
Charleston has been more or less dead
for some period of time. It is also
equally as well known that she is
just about one of the IIvest things
going just at this time. She is on the
go so to speak; she is hustling. A
glance at the table showing the In-'
crease In exports and imports for the
past five years will show that she has
taken on new life and that business
is picking up. it can hardly he said
that the growth has been the result
Of her natural advantages, although
they are almost unequaled In the
Southeast, but it must be admitted
that It has been the result of an ef
fort on the part of her citizens, lead
by her Mayor, R. G. Rhett. to do
bigger things than she has done here
tofore. They have determined that
Charleston shall no longer be In the
background when other cities with
tenser opportunities are springing
As we said in the beginning, there is
a lesson for we people of Laurens in
the trade excursion. This lessen is
that we ought to lie up and doing our
selves. Laurens has occupied just
such a position as has Charleston for
a good many years. We are here sur
rounded by the best back country of
any county In *hc slate, perhaps; wc
have as good railroad facilities as
many a more thriving town although
we have let pass some mighty fine
prospects for more railroads; we have
as much and more oapHal than many
a more hnstllng city; we have tho inen
capable of doing things; and there
are none but who would like to see
the city first among those In the
riedmont. Charleston has begun to
boost bor natural advantages with
marvelous results. Laurens could
boost her resources pla *e her money
in native enterprises and tho rewards
would be ns largo as those which ore
going to Charleston.
Every man In Laurens should be
a booster-of bis own town. Every
where that he goes he should be ever
o;i the alert to say a good word for
her enterprises, her fine country and
her fine prospects and then when
some enterprise Is set on foot every
body should subscribe to the stock
ond start the ball rolling. Other
towns do these things and It cannot
be sold that Laurens Is not equal to
any of them She Is as good a town
ms there i<< in South Carolina if hei
business men will assert themselves,
hand together and start a cum; lign
for bettet end larger things.
Let us follow in the footsteps of
the Bleepy Charlestonlans and start

Lisbon Locals. *
Lisbon. April 10.?We have been
counting the friut that is left from
the recent cold snap, while we find
some few trees full, we find plenty
that the fruit was killed In the hud.
The apple has iust commenced to
bloom and we hope to have a good
crop if some of these cold April show
ers don't cause them to dr?p off. The
early plantin? of corn is slow about
coming up. We can't hear much talk
of planting cotton seed ot present,
however we will commence about the
15th of this month. AH small grain
needs more rain. We had plenty n
few days back but the cold winds put
it to the bad so far as the gialn was
concerned. The thorough prepara
tion on the farms are still going on.
but the time has come when we will
have to plant and work after WO do
plant. The thorough preparation is
all right so far as it goes, but you
will have to work aftor that. There
will he a great den| of fertilizer used
on corn this veer. They seem to
think if Jerry Moore can make 228
bushels per a.-re, they can too. so they
are going to give it a trial if the fer
tilizer and plenty of It counts any
thing. One boy told me that he had
already put on one acre 10.00 pounds
barn yard manure and would coin
mence his high grade fertilizer Inter
on to wind up with nitrate soda; so
the boys may look out. this hoy is go
ing to do something.

faithful pupils: the community a good
and noble young man; the home one
of its lights and hopes.

pathy goes mit to the father and moth
er, the brothers and sisters, we re
Jolc - fiith them in the assurance that
ho Is not dead but hits gone on to that
great celestial life, there to live in

ily; a copy t.) the Baptist Courier, and
