Loyally to Home Merchants.
You cannot fight, the mall order
houses by arousing the customer's ire.
If one of your good customers comes
to you with the statement that ho just
bought a certain article from Chicago
,because he considered he was saving
fynoney by so doing, dln't whine about
li 1 you've done for him and then to
have him treat you like that. That is
the best way pissiblc to lose a good
customer and make him a'determined
advocate of mail-order buying.
Show that you could have given him
just as good a deal, if not better.
'Arouse his loyalty. Don't plead for
yoursolf, but for the town ns a whole.
Down In Charleston, S. C, the mer
chants havo banded together on an
educational campaign to arouse Inter
est and loyalty in home buying. They
state why ono should buy. at home
from tho residents viewpoint. Their
whole argument Is summed up in this
set Of "Bccauses," which each mer
chant prints in his advertising and
distributes on circulars and otherwise:
I Buy At Home.
Because my interests are here.
Because the community that Is good
enough for me to live In is good enough
for me to buy in.
Because 1 bellevo In transacting
business with my friends.
Because I want to see the goods.
Because I want to get what I buy
when I pay for yc. , ,
Because my home dealer "carries"
me when 1 run short.
Because every dollar I spend at
uome stays at home and works for
the welfare of Charleston.
Because the man I buy from stands
back of the goods.
,,Because I sell what I produce here
Becauso the men I buy from pays
his part of tho town, county and
Because the man I buy from gives
value received always.
Becauso the man I buy from helps
support my school, my church, my
lodge, my home. ,
Because when ill luck, misfortune
?or bereavement comes, the man 1 buy
from is hero with the kindly greeting,
his words of cheer and his pocket
book, if needs be.
Hero I live and here I buy.--Ex.

TRIP TO LITTLE KOCK.
The very interesting account below
of the trip which Mr. W. B. Compton,
one of the old veterans of this coun
ty, took to Little Rock during the
old soldiers reunion, was taken from
the Greenwood Journal some time
ago, but having In some manner got
misplaced on the reserve hook was
lost sight of. Mr. Compton is such
a well known citizen of this county
that It is only right that the people of
Laurens as well ng Greenwood Coun
ty should read the account of his trip.
The following; is the article as It
On May 14th. 12:20 p. m.. I board
ed the train at Greenwood and ar
rived at Little Rock on the 15th, 0:30
p. m., thence to the State House
around which throngs of onlookers
witnessed the registering of the Vets.
The city was crowded from center
to circumference with soldiers and
visitors. There were a great many
women, old and young, from every
confederate State, who made It very
inconvenient for the old solidere get
ting around the city by crowding
them out of the street cars and other
public conveyances. I am obliged to
acknowledge that it does - not meet
my approval for ladies who are not
deeply interested In the movement of
the old soldiers reunion to be pres
ent. I was told that in four days the
cars bandied seven hundred and lfty
Little Rock did everyt mg she
could to entertain and make us com
fortable, and while there I saw on
ly two who wore Intoxicated and
they were not from South Carolina.
After staying two days and nights,
I boarded the Iron Mountain R. R.
train for Hope and Ashvllle, Ark.,
two hundred and fifty miles further
west to visit relatives. I saw many
things there to interest me in regard
to varied industries and agriculture.
I visited portions of Hemstead, Pike
and Howard Cornties and found
many thousand acres of wheat the
people call "cut-over-land" that is
land with all the large timber taken
o>" leaving only young growth of
oak, hickory, pine, etc. One of the
chief industries in this part of Ar
kansas is lumbering. The lumber
mills handle timber so easily, fast
and variedly that I shall not attempt
a description. I consider the land
montilned above to be very produc
tive and that eighty five per cent of
all the land I saw in the three coun
ties to be in forest.
The good and reliable citizens say
that tb" lands have enhanced in
value one hundred per cent in ten
years. You can find the red, sandy,
gravel or black waxy soil, and kind
that might appeal to the agriculturist
for different products.
I visited also Laoline mines, and
as far as I know, the only diamond
mine in the Unicd States. This is
called "Kimberly" having gotten this
name from the great Kimberly dia
mond mine in Africa. Kimberly is
situated in the hills of Pike county.
The soil and different formations of
Peridolite rock were interesting to
study. I was allowed to enter with
a pass and my escort who was one
of the guards permitted me to pick up
a few different colored stones ns sou
The town of Kimberly has but a
few hotels and stores and only one
bank, yet it is interesting to an old
soldier like myself who had never
seen anything so new, to visit this
The next place of Interest was the
Brlnkley peach orchard of three
thousand acres also in Pike county.
They have a tower In the center of
tho orchard for observation which
overlooks the largest peach orchard
(except one) In the State. The largest
being near Dequcen in Sevlor coun
ty, which has four thousand acres,
all well loaded with line peaches.
Railroads extend in different direc
tions to accomodate the peach pick
ers. They had advertised for two
thousand pickers before I left. They
are still clearing land for planting
peach trees, "Elbcrto." being the fa
I noticed In passing around that
hundreds of acres are being cleared,
(or at least they call It clearing, for
they cut out all the saplings not larg
er than a man's arm and deaden the
larger timber which Is a great slaugh
ter and waste of virgin forest beyond
the Mississippi river). Never saw a
tree cut with a one blnded ax. The
larger timber Is sawed with Simon
saws and the smaller tree Is cut
with two blnded axes.
The crops of corn and cotton wero
very fine when I left for home on
the 10th of June but tho smaller grain
crop was a complete failure due to
W. B. Compton.
An ordinary case of diarrhoea can,
ns a rule, be cured by a singlo dose of
Chamberlains' Colic, Cholera ond Dia
rrhoea Remedy. This remedy has no
superior for bowel complaints. For
sale by all dealers.
