? "Dear Sir:
"In connection with the newspaper
nccount of the Incident between Gov
ernor Blease and myself on or about
July 29, 1911, in which it was stated
that I had been insulted by the gov
ernor, I wish to say that Governor
Bl ease's manner was not in the least
insulting in my opinion and did not
then, nor do I now feel that I had
been insulted hj th? eonvorgation be
tween ourselves, and the wrong Im
pression has been created concerning
the Incident which was a very ordi
nary occurrence of which I thought
nothing at all and would have entire
ly passed from my mind in a few
minutes but for the newspaper reports
" I am anxious that this wrong Im
pression be corrected and would thank
you to assist ine in any manner that
you cnn to that end. Tours truly.

Colsmbla's Weather Prophet Gives ont
s Little Dope on the Weather Con*
dltlon for the next Month.
(From the Columbia State.)
The Dutch Weather Prophet" here
with gives a forecast of temperature,
precipitation and killing frost for the
South Atlantic section?the killing
front embracing the region north of
the parallel on which Columbia Is lo
The temperature of the month of
October will be much above normal,
v Ith the probability of an extension
of October temperatures into the first
week in November.
Killing frost will occur In the region
as above uamed on the period which
Is central around Novei?bci 13. Kill
ing frost occurred last year about
three weeks earlier than the above
There Is a double importance to
the date, as above given, on account
of the fact that the equinoctial storm
period occurs in November this year,
or at least the most stormy condi
tions of the equinoctial period, for
the tropical storms sometimes do oc
cur even as late as December 1st.
The date for such tropical storm this
year is November 18. Such a storm,
I believe, will affect both the Gulf
and South Atlantic coasts at the
period named here. Iu connection
with' this forcast it. will be observed
that no storm of a tropical character
has so far occurred during the esui
noctlal period of 1911, the Charleston
storm being semi-tropical in nature
and not within the course of the reg
ular tropical storms. Thus my fore
cast of March 10 was not misleading,
and yet at the same time, that fore
cant named August 29 as a period of
greatest precipitation, and It was to
be expected as such a season in the
summer It would partake of severe
character, but being ?i?luuit to locate
as to where it would be more or lees
destructive. The fact that it was
confined to a comparatively small
area shows that it would have been
difficult to forecast, but yet, at the
same time, very severe on account
of its confined limits. ?
The peculiar meteorological condi
tions which have prevailed in 1911
will continue, and in a number of
resoects account for the abnormal
temperatures, placing the amount of
heat about 500 degrees above normal
for the year so far. And the end is
* October will be a favorable month
for harvesting crops. The periods
of greatest precipitation are 12-15,
with cool wave: 23-97, with cool wave.
The Indications are that the week
of the State fair, beginning October
30, will be fair and warm.
The precipitation for the winter and
spring will be much above normal.
The indications are that the average
amount of rainfall will have a good
balance on the right hand side of the
weather ledger when the farmer be
ginn to plant cotton in 1912.
The winter of 1911-'12 will be gen
erally moderate in temperature. The
dates of the colder periods will bo
given later in a special forecast. Two
?nows each of the Blue Ridge are in
cluded in the probllitles ,of the
winter o! !911-'12.

WE WANT EVERY FAMILY IN THE COUNTY TO USE
Snowdrift Hogless Lard
IT IS THE BE5T COOKING GREASE ON THE MARKET
Because it is purer and more wholesome than other Cooking Pats.
Because it goes one-third further and costs one-third less than hog lard.
WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?
Don't take our word for it but ask the thousands of satisfied users. Every progressive merchant
in Laurens and Clinton sells and recommends Snowdrift. The sale is increasing daily.
We sold during the past thirty days 27,000 pounds, over a car load. We venture to say that the
combined sales in Laurens of all other lards was a great deal less.
A few merchants will substitute cheap compounds for Snowdrift. Don't stand for it. Insist on
getting the best.
It is put up in 2, 4, 10, 20 and 50 lbs sealed tin pails. Include a bucket in your next order. You
will like it.
