With tho iargo number of glass

families coining in on many of the
trains, Laurens is taking on an air
of growth. The signs now are healthy

Some steps ought to bo taken to
make our new citizens feel at home.
They should be given cordial recep
tions on every hand. They should
be shown some real interest oth

Our churches, especially, should ex
ert every energy towards making them
fool that they are in our thoughts. And
then, too, sometimes the best of men
go astray when they are allowed to
go without that brotherly fellowship
being shown which thoy have a right
to ex peel when in a strange place.

On account of the late hour at which
we went to press last* night wo were
forced to leave out several letters of
some of our most valued correspond

which usually llnd place in this col

The Herald has Joined with The
Advertiser in discussing the feasibili
ty of building a railroad from here
to Helton. We are glad to note the
cordial spirit which It joined with us
on that proposition nnd now we hope
that somebody else besides tho news
papers will have something to say on
the subject. We would like to hear
this question discussed thoroughly.
Wo have often heard this plan sug
gested as a rather, expensive one but
It has never been looked Into. If any
body has any doubts about the prac
ticability of the plan, let them speak
out. Heing practical and outspoken is
not being backward by any means. Do
not be afraid of being called a crok
er. Adverse criticism will be better
than none at all. Let us have any
kind of a discussion to show that we
arc at least interested.

f NE HP SELECTION.
To those who are ambitious in tho
selection of their seed corn we would
direct attention to the article In this
Issue headed "Solectlon of Seed Corn."
At this time, when progressive meth
ods of agriculture are being: followed
so closely and so successfully, we
cannot afford to overlook tbo most im
portant item in the culture of our crops
An unsound seed is produclve of an
unsound product. Equally is It true
that a sound seed corn will produce,
If properly cultivated, a sound ear of
corn. The importance of seed selec
tion has been stressed on every hand
and at every opportunity by our agri
cultural leaders and now that every
frne has become convinced that the
sound seed is the first consideration
fn successful planting, they are now
Celling us how to get that soundness.
K The article is a short one and to the
\-point. Just plain common sense
LAUBKNN HOBSE WINNING.
Proves Sensation at the Winston-Sa
lem Fair, Taking all four Heats of a
The Wlnston-Salem (N. C.) Journal
had a great deal complementary to say
about "Linda" a little chestnut mare
owned by Mr. O. Pope Irby of thin
city. The little mare has won several
big purses In fast races recently and
promises to do even better. LaBt week
she won two races at Roanoke and
this week she has won another. In
fact sho has not been beaten at all
since the 26th of September, so says
Mr. Irby. Soon aftr the close of the
Winston-Snlein meet, Mr. Irby says
he will carry her further north and
get on the faster tracks, where the
pursss are larger and where she will
be more in her own class.
The following is what the North
Carolina paper had to say about the
race In particular:
The undoubted feature of the whole
program yesterday were tho races.
$4.50 Horse Won.
Lindy, the pretty little chestnut mnro
owned by Mr. O. P. Irby. of South
Carolina, proved the sensational racer
yesterday, winning the three straight
heats in the race which she catered.
Likewise she won the race Tuesday.
The 2:18 Pace.
Four horses were entered for the
second race of the afternoon, this be
ing the 2:18 pace. In the first heat
' 'ttle .Joe took a line lead and the oth
t.'s followed in one, two. three order,
with little Lindy far In the rear. Be
fore the first half of the first lap was
completed little Lindy had been miss
ed in one, two, three order by Rover
Queen and Allco Parrish, but Lindy
lagged and everybody wondered what
could be the matter with the heroine
of the day before.
So the race continued until tho last
half of the last lap. Then something
seemed to whisper to Lindy, her lit
tle form took on new life. She sprang
forward like the rust of the wind,
passed Little Joe, shot by Alice Par
rish and reached within two lengths
of Rover Queen. Then Lindy seemed
to take delight, in showing the cheer
ing multitude what was in her. Her
little form seemed almost to leave the
earth and while the whole grandstand
was alive with waving hats apd canes
and yelling people Lindy sped by Rov
er Queen just to the niche of time and
finished the race as winner with a
half length to spare. Time. 2:10 1-2.
Lindy did not lag an instant in the
second heat. She took the lead from
the sound of the bell and kept It mag
nificently. It looked as If nothing
could pass her. Rover Queen, how
ever, maintained a good second
throughout the heal. The only fea
ture of this event was the home
stretch spurt of Little Joe, who had
lagged behind until the last half of
tho last lap. Then he began to take
on new life and finished the heat but
a neck behind Alice Parrish, the third
in the race. Time, 2:17 3-4. The bettor
time in this heat was undoubtedly due
to the fact that Lindy set the pace for
the whole of the two laps.
In the third and final heat of this
race little Lindy ngain took the lead
with Little .loo following for a whole
lap and more a close second. But in
the last half of the second lap, Little
Joe lost ground and gave his place
to Rover Queen, who finished second,
Lindy, of course, going under the wire
firs! by two lengths and more. Time
?2:1s Pace, Purse $300.

would ever remain in the rut that they
are In today. He urged them to put
intelligence in their business, band
together to hold cotton, build ware
houses to hold It In, It neccessary
form insurance companies to insure it
In and then when this was done the
farmer could stand up like a man and
demand his rights along with the oth
er business men of the world.
Senator Smith said that In the next
session of the United States Congress
he intended to introduce a bill to re
quire the census department to pub
lish an accurate record of the number
of bales being kept in ware housos
and mills at the same time that they
publish the other cotton reports. He
proposed to have such a report got
ten out so that the producers of the
cotton would know how much cotton
Is in the hands of the mills just as the
mills now are able to judge how much
cotton is In the hands of the farmers.
In this way, he hopes to place the
farmers and spinners on an ecpiat ba
sis as regards actual knowledge of the
amount of cotton available.
In closing Senator Smith urged the
farmers to stick toyether in this state
and all over the south and, If they did,
that victory would crown their efforts.
At the close of his speech he was
loudly cheered and a vote of thanks
was tendered him by the convention.
A number of other men made ad
dresses at the meeting. Mr. B. F. Kel
ly, vice president of the State Farm
ers Union, made atlrring appeal to the
farmers to stick together. Judgo O.
G. Thompson, Mr. W. L. Gra> and Mr.
N. B. Dial were among thoso from
this city who spoke Mr. Dial suggest
ed that a plan such as the whiskey
dealers utilized, bo dlscussel. Ac
cording to this plan cotton could be
placed In bonded warehouses and tho
certificates carried to the Clerk of
Court who would certify as to their
being free from any clnlms and these
certllcates then wold be honored any
where and money gotton on them. This
would aid the farmers in holding their
dotton and at the same time allow
them to meet their obligation.
Mr. F. P. McGowan offered resolu
tions thanking Senator Smith for his
address to the farmers and Judge
Thompson offered one of wide-scope
thanking him for his struggle In be
half of the southern farmers. Judge
Thompson also offered resolutions
thanking Capt. Richey for the use of
