STILL IX THE liEGL'LAlt NAVY.
Lnurens Man Sticks to bis Job AI*
though He Docs Dabble in Law.
Mr. Samuel McGowan, Pay Inspector
t'nited States Navy, arrived Sunday
from Philadelphia where he is on duty
in charge of the Navy Purchasing Of
fice, and will spend some days in Lau
rens on business connected witli the
improvement of the cemetery.
To an inquiry as to whether he had
"quit the navy for law", Mr. McGow
an replied: "In consequence of a re
cent over-friendly publication In the
Philadelphia inquirer which tho Ad
vertiser was kind enough to reprint,
that same question has boon asked my
by quite a few people. The story was
founded on fact. There was a fight
between two privates of marines. One
of the combatants subsequently died,
tiic other being placed on trial for
man-slaughter. The outcome of the
court martial has not yet been official
ly promulgated, hui I have heard an
unconfirmed rumor to the effect that
ho was acquitted?-this notwithstand
ing the fact that I was his counsel.
I am still In the navy, though."

With u full brass band in attend
ance from Pelzer and with a large
number of entries in many depart
ments already made, the first annual
Laurens County Fair will be held to
morrow. Preparations have been
made for this event of events for sev
eral months and everything has been
gotten in readiness for a line exhibi
tion of Laurens county products, In
spite of the low price of cotton and
the consequent depression In many
circles, It is thought that a huge crowd
will be on band. The stock and cat
tle exhibits will be held in darling
ton's Meadow where everything will
be arranged to take care of all entries.
Here also the driving contests will
take place and this part of the fair
is expected to prove the most inter
esting feature. The corn club exhib
its will be held in the Dial building
opposite the office of Superintendent
of Education Geo. L. Pitts. It. was
first announced that this exhibit would
be held in the armory, but Mr. Pitts
found that It would be more conve
nient to hold it in the Dial buildint
so there it will be held. To get t
this place It is necessary to go u
