Smyth, Jr., Mr. W. S. Lee and Mr. Z.
Tf. Talor, promoters and managers of
the Interurban Railroad system from
Chaiiotto to Greenwood, spent the
night In tho city Thursday Tight. A
committee of leading citizens made a
call on them at the Wlnona Hotel and
diacussed Informally the railroad sit
uation in so much as the hopes of
Laurens were concerned. While the
Interurban people gave out nothing
that would lead one to believe that
the road would he built hero at an
early date, still enough encouragement
was given to hope that as soon as the
Jlne now under construction was fin
ished that they would he looking out
lor other torritory and that Laurens
would stand a good show of being
among the llrst to get one of tho lines.
In building their lines in the future,
'as In tho past, these gentlemen said
that the interurban would always pre
fer building to those cities which held
out the most inducements in tho way
of money, business and good will.
Those towns which showed most by
their willingness to subscrfbe to the
stock of the company that they want
ed the lino would bo given tho first
choice when tho tlmo came for going
into new territory. Outside of the as
aurnnce that the promoters looked with
a favorable eye on Laurens as a future
objective point, nothing more definite
was promised. However, those who
wore at the meeting were very much
encouraged with What they heard and
felt more assured than ever that Lau
rens would at some future date, not
far distant have trolley connection
with the other Piedmont cities.

He Will Agalin be Id the Race for As
sociate Justice of the Supreme Court.
To bis many friends in his home
town, tho announcement that Judge
Watts would again allow his name
to be used as a candidate for an As
i sociate Justiceship is received with
great plensure. When the balloting
was taking place during the Bessions
If the legislature this year, the race
was closely followed by a large num
ber of his friends here and a large
number went down to assist in his
campaign. When the legislature again
convenes the race of Judge Watts will
he closely watched and championed by
his large circle of friends here. The
announcement that he would run
comes in a short article in "The State"
It is as follows:
Cheraw, September 21.?It is ex
tremely gratifying to bis many friends
throughout the State to know that
Judge Watts is again a enndidate for
Associate Justice, the office to which
he aspired last year. Thus early in
the season letters and expressions of
endorsement are coming in from sev
eral directions, and they differ very
little in the ground they take or the
reasons they give for endorsing Judge
Watts' candidacy. Following are some
of the points made:
(1) Judge Watts is the ranking Cir
cuit Judge on the Bench.
(2) He stands high in the estimation
of the Bar of the tSate.
(3) He led the race in the contest
before the legislature last year.
(4) A larger proportion of his deci
sions have been sustained by the Su
preme Court than of any other Circuit
Judges on the Bench. A number of
persons have checked up the Supreme
Court decisions and found this to be
the case, it is stated.
The opinions seems to be that if
there Is any just recognition of a
Judge's right to promotion and of his
eminent services on the Bench, the
oillce of Associate Justice, which was
created by an Act of the legislature
last year, will' fall to Judge Watts.

To good Old Summer time we must now bid adieu. Autumn draws nigh. Shall you not prepare for Fall while our stock
is full and fresh, and be ready for autumn when it comes? Do so now. You'll not be "caught" when the frosts come, as come
they will. You really care more for what you get than for what you pay; most of you are willing to pay what real quality costs.
The common difficulty is to be sure before you do pay that you're going to get it. There's where we make you safe; nothing
here but quality; if you're not satisfied with it after you buy, get your money back.

Autumn Fashion Corset Review
First the corset, then the gown, is the maxim. American women have
learned the importance of correct foundation lines. Let the foundation be
good. Without a properly fitted corset the most elegant gown is without
style. Better a good corset and a cheap gown than a poor corset whose bad
lines even rich apparel cannot conceal. The new fall styles in dress make
the low cut corset the leading model. All the new models are now shown in
