communities In the county. Cor?

Some of ottr contemporaries seem
to be worrying themselves less a "cer
tain paper" come out too strong for
Jones. We haven't noticed so far any
ground for such uneasiness. It may
be though that a more dlrert en
dorsement will como later. If we read
its editorial the same day of Mr. Jones'
announcement correctly a real en
dorsement wub not contained in It.
It was the desire of Tho Advertiser
to publish in full the address of Con
gressman Johnson at the corner stone
laying but our request for a copy of It
was met with the reply that there was
no copy. Mr. Johnson had spoken with
out any notes and consequently wo are
unnble to give it in full. We would
like to have printed the address In
full for wo feel that It would have
been a valuaole contribution to the
records of the county.
OUR KAHM PAPERS.
The agricultural papers are doing
a great work In raising the standard
of our farmers and of Increasing the
efficiency of our farm lands. We do
wot take subscriptions for any of them,
bnt we do recommend that every farm
er In the county have one or more
come to his home. If tho old folks
sometimes pea-slat In following the
old methods of agriculture, tho young
er ones will read the valuable advice
of the trnlnod experts and the future
prosperity of the country will be moro
certain. Today we have clipped sov
cral very valuable articles from one
of them and wo believe that tho ad
vice contained In them Is valuable.
There are several very good agricul
tural papers published In this sec
tion of the country that are proving
very valuable and at the same time in
OUR CITY WATER.
Somo well grounded kicks have boon
recently registered against the re
curring muddy condition of our city
water. Several times of late the wa
ter has been so muddy its to have
the appearance of just coming from an
overflowing meek. An enquiry has
brought out the fact that the pump
nnd llltorlng station is out of alum
and that those who have In charge the
purchase of that material have refus
ed to buy any more. To those who
are not familiar with the methods of
purifying the city water it can be stat
ed that the alum Is the Ingredient us
ed to take tho coloring out. What
other purpose it serves we do not.
know, but it serves that purpose and
some more ought to ho purchased. If
the lack of alum is not the cause of
the trouble, something else is and
whatever It Is should be given prompt
attention. Discolored and impure wa
ter should not and will not be tolerat
. The secret which the southern
formers have not yet solved could be
wolve.d by the method suggested by
Mr. N. B. Dial at tho farmers' meet
ing Monday. He suggested that the
farmers come to the assistance of the
town and city people and place tholr
earnings In the banks and trust com
panies so that when situations liko the
present arise tho farmers will have
enough money back of them to hold
their cotton without having to call
?on the bankers of the North, If tho
farmers porslst In placing all their
earnings in raising more cotton and
then do not provide for proper fl
?aanclng of their undertakings they can
NjXpoet nothing elso but poor returns.

zlneB will learn that a large per cent. 1
of the failures In the business world!
is due to lack of capital. Many al
isoomlngly thriving business has gone i
to the wall from lack of capital to
tide over just such predicaments as
the southern farmers are facing. Just
as tho crop prospects seem to be fa
vorable for a better price now, just
bo many commercial houses some
times havo bright prospects but go to
tho wall from lack of money to car
ry on tho business. What tho farmers
will have to do Is to Btop placing bo
much money In producing cotton and
provide some way of financing the
crop after it is made. In this way
tho crop will bo reduced In size and
at tho same time a good revenue will
be derived from tho money Invested.
Of course this only applies to those
farmers who are making money and
who have it to Invest. A plenty ol
such live In this county. The cotton
raising bualnOBB in the south Is over

LET'S HAVE NO CONFLICTS.
Tho Yorkvllle ?? Enquirer seems de
termined to "rustle up" other can
dldates In the coming race be
tween Jones and Bleaso for gover
nor. In its last issue It suffered Itself
to suggest thnt tho prohibltloulsts
again get Into the field and If possi
ble induco Hon. C. C. Featherstone to
Let It not be understood that we
would not like to seo Mr. Feather
stone occupy tho governor's chair nor
that wo would not like to see every
dispensary and saloon In South Caro
lina closed and tho law enforced. Al
though Mr. Featherstono has left our
midst The Advertiser still has the
kindly feeling for him that It has al
ways had. But we think the prohibi
tionists would do themselves and "pro
hibition-local optionlsts" an Injustice
If they should enter the field next
summer. We are firmly convinced
thut right at this time the sentiment
of the majority of the people of South
Carolina Is not for state-wide prohi
bition and that further no manner of
a campnign nor no manner of a lead
er could turn enough votes to win tho
election during tho coming summer.
What prohibitionists will havo to do
is to support at this election on hon
orable, upright and fearless gentle
man, as is Ira B. Jones, and then,
in tho coming years attempt to change
the sentiment of the people of South
Carolina agalimt the sale of whiskey
In any form. Until this Is done state
wide prohibition will only be a dream.
We beliovo that Judge Jones real
izes tho peculiar position which he
now occupies and the peculiar cir
cumstances which will throw the sup
port of tho larger element of law abid
ing citizens to bis side. Knowing this,
wo bellove that he will not exert him
self to force bis views on the whis
key question, nor will he endeavor to
break down the prohibition wall that
has already been erected. It Is our
belief and hope that he will exert his
utmost to enforce the laws as they
now stand on the books and not to
attempt to change them.
This policy, we know, would be con
sidered by some as a "stand pat" or
oven more as a "stand still" policy,
but It is not so. We will have to use
our beat strength In upholding the
pride and honor of our state rather
than to let everything go In a vain
endeavor to have our way on the
whiskey question. We must let well
enough alone until we can get our peo
ple back to the old way of thinking
where honor was the first require
ment in Its governor.
A HEAL AIRCASTLE.
Dreamed at the Laurens Class Works
and Placed In n Solid Form.
Everybody has built alrcastles of
various sizes, shapes, forms and hues
but few have had them realized as Is
the case with Messrs Woods and Cum

Works crew, who have dreamed of air
castles long enough to bo able to
place one In solid form. They have
bu ; and presented to Bays Pharma

"alrcastles" and It Is now on exhibi
tion at Rays. It Is composed of two
thousand pieces of glnss hung togeth

rainbow. It is really a wonderful
piece of work and well worth seeing.

A courtship of twenty years ended
in tho Central Methodist Church at 6
o'clock last night when Miss Annie
Lee Lanford, of Lanford, S. C, be
came the bride of Joseph B. Cooley, a
Manila resident who is one of the
beBt known American pioneers of
Rev. J. L. McLaughlin, general agent
of the American Bible Society in the
PhiUlpplnes, conducted the ceremony
which sets another landmark in this
childhood romance which began in the
sunny southland. Major Alexander
J. Robertson was best man, Miss Fran
ces Cooley, sister of the bridegroom
and a playmate of the brido was maid
of honor, and the bride was given
away by Judge Louis M. Southworth,
formerly of Mississippi. Only a few
intimnte friends were in attendance.
After a short honeymoon Mr. and
Mrs. Cooley will be at home to their

Form Jones Club.
All the newspapers in the State that
have expressed an opinion think well
of Judge Jones and endorse his can
didacy for governor. This is all they
can do and all that they should do in
the matter. The people of Sbuth
Carolina know Judgo Jones and what
manner of man he Is. The newspa
pers have, from time to time, for full
twenty years made record of his po
litical activities and of his public and
official services. It Is on this record
that he will be judged by the voters of
the State, not by what his supporters
may say In his praise. The people
need no advice as to how they should
vote and the less advice and admoni
tion the newspapers offer the better.
Our policy is to publish the facts and
leave it to the voters to make up their
minds how they shall vote. If the ma
jority make a mistake and select the
wrong man for governor, or any other
ofllce, the majority will suffer more
than the minority. While this Is cold
comfort, tho minority have at least the
satisfaction of feeling that they are
not rsponslble for the Ills they en
dure along with tho mnjorlty.
But this Is a digression from the
subject. What we started out to say
Is: Tho newspapers should hands-off
In this campaign and eschew editor
ial encomiums of favorite candidates
and forego denunciations of those
who they oppose. Publish the
facts, as the campaign progresses, as
fully as possible, without bias or pre
judice, and let It go at that.
In the meanwhile, If the political
editors must find an outlet for their en
thusiasm for Judge Jones, let them
devote tlpalr tlmo and their energies
that would othorwlso be expended In
writing boosting editorials In organiz
ing Jones' clubs In every county and
at every precinct. A thorough or
ganization In every county will ac
complish a great deal more than the
most brilliantly conducted newspa
per campaign. The way to beat
