FOR FALL BAZAAR
Suggestions Made That the bazaar bo
Held Dur/tig tbo County Fair and
Thus I m use Life Into Both,
The ladies of the Methodist and
Presbyterian churches have begun
preparations for the annual Fall Ba
zaar. II Will ho hold this year sonic
time in the that part of November,
probably during the first week, hut it
is yet unknown how long it will last,
At tbo last meeting of the ladles in
terested, the matter of having it dur
ing the County Fair was discussed,
hut no doflnite plans were made to
that effect. It was pjointed out at
(be meeting that a large number of
people w,ould he here that day who
would have to have dinners anyhow
and who. unless such conveniences
were provided, would probably go
Without. It was also pointed out that
as in many other couuty fairs, the
dower exhibit could be made a very
important part of tbo fair itself sind
would prove quite a drawing card for
*he ladies of the county, for the plans
of the county fair organizers do not
call for anything especially appealing
to the ladies. The bazaar (bis year
is expected to surpass all former ones.

"Another hand Is beckoning us,
Another call is given;
Aim glows once more with Angel
Tlio path which reaches Heaven."
In the sweet morning time of her
useful, beautiful life, gentle lovely Lil
lian Holt was called to "lay down the
cross and wear the crown." Tons who
can anly "see through a glass darkly"
it was most mysterious, most pathet
ic. She had chosen the noble, unsel
lish life of a trained nurse; last fall
received her diploma and entered up
on regular service. At the post of
duty, beside the sick bed of a patient
she was nursing in Columbia, she be
came ill and was taken to the hospit
All that the splendid skill of fine
surgeons and the tender ministration
of trained nurses and her devoted
family was done for her, but in vain;
her life work was done. After four
weeks of Intense suffering she was
called "up higher."
She loved her work and wished to
recover, but realizing that this could
not be, calmly placed her hands in

and the grave its victory; all was well

"Wo miss her in the place of prayer
And by the hearth-fire's light;
We pause beside her door to hear
Once more her sweet 'Good night.'
Alone unto our Father's will
One thought hath reconciled;
That He, whose love exceedetl) ours
Hath taken Home His child.
Fold her, oh Father! in Thine arms
And let her hence forth be
A messenger of love between
Our human hearts and Thee."
POLNTKRS FOR TUB MOTORIST.
The I in par ta nee of Repairing Small
Cuts in Lin elopes.
To secure the best possible service
from his tires, the motorist must care
for them properly and nothing is of
greater importance than prompt re
palring of small cuts In the treads.
It is Impossible to avoid these cuts
as small stones and other sharp ob
jects are bound to come in contact
with the tread. Sometimes these cuts
are small and seem Insignificant but
damage results from neglecting them.
In fact, unless repaired promptly they
will eventually bring about the com
plete destruction of the envelope.
Stones, dust and dirt work in and un
der the tread, raising blisters and
separating the rubber from the can
vas. Moisture also gels in and quick
ly rota the fabric and dls-integratlon
Immediately on discovery of cuts
the edges and interior should be thor
oughly < leaned with gasoline, separat
ing the edges with a match or small
slick to expose the inside. All foreign
matter must be removed and when the
cut Is porfoctly clean, the interior and
edges should be coated with cement.
After allowing the lirst coat to dry,
apply another and while still "tacky,"
knead with the lingers sufficient man
tle and force it into the outs, pressing
jl firmly Into every crevice. When
the cut is properly (lied, hold the edges
together tinny for a few moments un
til the mastic sets. The repair should
then be allowed to stand six hours or
more If possible, allowing the mastic
to harden properly. Mastic Is n plas
tic cement sold at nearly all garages.
It Is very useful and a small can for
the tool box Is a good investment.

Several Ministers of the City Make
investigations and Find tiiat Sunday
Closing, as Practiced in Larger Cit
ies Would not Affect Laurens Office,
Following the publicity given the
matter of Sunday closing of certain
departments of Post Ofllces in larger
cities and the calling for an expres
sion of opinion on the subject from
the people of this city by Postmaster
licks. Rev. Mr. Rankln and Rev. Mr.
McQee, at the suggestion of the King's
Daughters, held a consultation on
the matter and came to the con
clusion, us will be gathered below,
that the closing as practiced in the
larger cities could not be put in force
to advantage here. As the letter of
Mr. Rankln, written to Mrs. C. W.
Tune of the King's daughters explains
the matter uuite fully it is printed be
low. The following is what Mr. Kan
kin had to say about it:
Mr. Dear Mrs. Tune: In regard to
your communication of recent date
from the King's Daughters, with ref.
erence to Sunday closing of the mails
at our Post otllco here, 1 would say.
that Mr. McCee und l took up the
matter with Mr. Hicks, the Postmaster,
and he in turn with the Department
at "Washington to see what the Gov
ernment offered In this matter, and
he reports to me this morning, that
the Government ?fters nothing that
will make it worth our while to take
any steps in that direction. The De
partment requires the distribution of
mails to the boxes, and the delivery
window to be opened at stated hours
for hotel men and visitors, and for
any ono demanding "emergency" mail.
The Sunday closing, that is agitated in
the cities, only has reference to car
riers windows, and the general deliv
ery. As we have no carriers windows
here, and our general delivery win
dow is already close/1 on Sundays ex
cept at certain hours, just after in
coming mails, and as most of our peo
ple get their malls through the boxes,
the ruling of the Department with ref
erence to Sunday closing does not ben
efit us at all, or change the present
states of affairs.
This had been my understanding of
the department ruling, is the reason,
why I had not taken some steps In
the matter before. The only tiling
that Is left for our Christian people to
do, is to voluntarily decline to take
their mall out of the boxes on the

2 THE WEEK I
Improvements in business senti
: mout still holds, but it is inure man
ifest In the Easl than in the West, und
I In the securtles market than in the
principal industries. There is, how
ever, to he noted some expansion in
the demand for cotton goods, retail
trade in particular showing more ac
tivity, and the hope is expressed thai
the limit of curtailment of production
has been reached. Larger sales are
noted in the shoe trade and leather
and hides are more active. Ill iron
and steel n decided cut is made in the
price of steel bars, ami there are fur
ther concessions In the prices of pig
iron. This has had an unsettling ef
fect, not only jn the iron and steel
trade. Inn to some extent in business
generally. Crop prospects continue t<>
Improve and this fact constitutes the
strongest basis for the future in a
gradual expansion of industrial activ
ity as the year advances. Meanwhile
the banks keep piling up additional
cash resources, and their capacity for
credit expansion is greater than in
many years, while the admission of
trust companies into New York Clear
lug House strengthens the llnunclal
situation to an extent that is scarcely
appreciated, but which yakes this
lone of the most important banking
developments in years. While earn
ings during two weeks of May de
creased D.I per cent, as compared
with last year, bank clearing!! tin
week make substantial gains, the in
creases bejng 1,9 per cent, over 1910
and 0.1 per cent, over 1909 outside of
New York, and 12.0 and 9.8 per cent,
respectively, In New York. In all of
the leading Industries the growth of
export trade is ?tili a striking and
favorable feature of the situation; ami
again in New York, during the latest
week, the exports exceeded the im
ports, though that is chiefly an import
city; exports were $15,370,011, or
$392,570 In excess of the imports, in
the corresponding weeks in 1910 and
1909 the excess imports were $3,3G3,.
051 and $5,024,132, respectively. The
business situation, therefore, as a
whole, presents a number of elements
of improvement, and while the increase
in actual transactions is very slow,
and in some places not disceruable in
any appreciable degree, an advance
has undoubtedly been made
More active retail buying has been
accompanied by broader purchasing
in the primary markets for spot and
future delivery of cotton goods Im
converting and nuincfacturing pur
poses. Prices on gray and bleached
cottons are advancing in a steady way,
many well-known makes being from
I-sc to l-tc per yard higher. That
prices .are still below producing costs
is indicated by the larger measure oi
restriction id' output that is nuiioiinc
Od. Export sales and shipments are
ahead of last year in the cotton goods
division. In dress goods the trend to
ward rough effects is marked and
woolen mills are-getting the benefit
