A fellow was down here from Green
ville the other day and said that he
was pretty sure that both cars were
tied up during the Spartanburg strike.

The Greenwood Journal ooys that

When the farmers learn to value
their crop on the basis of what it is
worth and what they will take for it
rather than on the basis of what they
can gel for it. a forward step will have
been made towards putting the sale of
that staple on a paying basis.
? ? ?
It seems to us as if right now is the
time to begin preparations to market
next year's cotton crop by preparing
for a big corn crop and planting right
now a grain and cover crop. And then
too, an extra calf or so would come in
bandy next fall and winter as wc "Id
a few hogs. But a meeting cvo,rj( u y
in the week and ten columns In every
Issue of the newspapers will not bring
tho results unless the farmers them
selves act. Call a little cotton meet
ing of your own and swear off over*
balancing your products.
? ? ?
A number of our subscribers are
somewhat in arrears. Now that the
cotton is being gathered and sold we
think that we ought to bo favored with
your payment. Do not overlook send
ing tills In right away as we count on
our subscription money Just as much
as our 'farmer friends count on cot
ton money. Remember that we have to
pay bills just as regularly as you have
to pay yours and perhaps more reg
ularly. Try not to forget us the next
time you aro In town or if you do not
come very often drop a dollar bill In
nn envelope with your name on a piece
of paper. Uncle Sam's boys will see
to It that we get It alright and then
nil of us will bo better satisfied.

We made a very urgent plea some
weeks ago for assistance for the city
library. We do not like to see this
matter dropped. Surely tho people of
Laurens are willing to help out In
this worthy cause. Just a little co
operation and liberality would produce
wonders. Sotee leading business man
should undertake the raising of a fund
for the association. Someone with
weight and influence could persuado
tho men of this city to contribute
enough money for a building in a very
short while if it would only be under
taken. Let us not rest until some
thing has been done. A new court
house, a new postOmCe, an almost new
school house, lelntlvoly new churches
and a new library building would form
stub a collection of public buildings
that all of us would be proud of and
could boast about.

RAISE THE STANDARD.
The fact that many of our colleges
are overflowing with students and
that in many casos students have been
turned away does not necesarlly Im
ply that we ought to build more col
leges for them or to prepare more
room for them. We believe the contrary
is the case. Too many of our boys and
girls leave their graded and high
schools unpr> ;arod for college. In
stead of building more colleges or add
ing to these we already have, we should
raise the standard of our graded and
high schools and make the boys and
girls stay there until they are pre
pared to go higher. This Is not mere
ly a little theory of ours either. Speak
"?g for the boys, we know that many
v*hem go to college unprepared. It
*t- been long since we were there
ourselves and we know wttflt they
have to confront and we know that
many of them never overcome the
handicap. We dare say that one half
of the students that applied for ad
mission In the colleges of the State
this fall were not prepared to enter
the freshman class. So' when the legis
lature comes to consider the matter of
more room at Winthrop this year, after
the reported overflow of students at the
opening, they Bhould first take up the
matter of supplying our high schools,
rural schools and graded schools with
more money and consequent higher

LAUBENS TO HELTON.
The announcement that a railroad is
being contemplated between Greenville
of our trading territory will be taken
and Augusta, running through Sulli
van and Waterloo townships, seems
not to have created much of an impres
sion on our people here. We consider
the announcement of great moment
for If such a road Is built, a large part
of our trading territory will be taken
from us. The trade that comes to
Laurens now from the Princeton sec
tion would go elsewhere. Let it not
be understood, though, that we would
not favor a railroad through Prince
ton, for that is not our intention. That
section of the county Is entitled to a
railroad for it Is one of the most pros
perous sections we have. If they can
not get a connection with Laurens we
will have to let them get a connection
Hut the point which we want to raise
is that we ought to have a railroad
from here through Princeton to Hel
ton. Now gasp, everybody, and say
its impractical. Its not impractical
but it is rather a stupendous under
taking. Such a road would cost a 1
hunch of money but In it would lie '
Laurens' salvation. Such a line would
not only open up a rich territory and !
give us a direct connection with a
prosperous section of our county, but
it would give direct connection with
Anderson and give Anderson a direct
connection with the Seaboard. It
would furnish a shorter route from An
derson to Columbia and a shorter route
from Greenville to Columbia than that
by way of Greenwood.
Dr. W. P. Jacobs, in the last issue of
Our Monthly, suggests again that we
get together and build the line from
Clinton to Laurens. Instead of build
ing only from Clinton to Laurens, we
extend the line to Helton, we would ;
have such a strategic position, in so \
far as railways are concerned, that
nothing could down us.
This would be a big proposition, but
the advantages to accrue to all are
AVERT AWFUL TRAGEDY.
Timely advice given Mrs. C. Wil
loughby, of Marengo. Wis., <R. No. 1)
prevented a dreadful tragedy and sav

frightful cough was a "consumption"
coughs and could do little to help her.
After many remedies failed, her aunt
urged her to take Dr. King's New Dis
covery, "I have been using it for some
time,'' she wrote "and the awful cough
has almost gone. It also saved my
little boy when taken with a severe
