Our Harmony correspondent. his

The Advertiser hopes that the rural

a time today as they did yesterday.

Another one of those unsigned let

In spite of the low price of cotton
many improvements are seen through
out the county. In a number of plac
es new homes, new tenant houses and
new out houses are going up. It tak< -
more than a temporary depression to
down Laurens county farmer*. They
just will keep abreast of the times.

In a letter to The Advertiser today.
Mr. J. H. Moore, of the Chestnut Ridge
section, complains ot hunting going
on In his neighborhood on the Snb
bath day. It is rather surprising that
this condition of affairs exists in Lau
rens county, but it can be put a stop
to. A fruitful Held for the rural po
lice is open In the Chestnut Ridge sec
tion. If these Sunday hunters have no
regard for the day themselves, they
should be made respect the wishes
of the majority of the community.

The Advertiser goes out to its read
ers today In a rather abbreviated form.
Our regular line of interesting ad
vertisements Is found, but the news
is scarce. Realizing the circumstances
under which our force worked yester
day, we are quite sure that our read
ers will bear with us if we give less
news than we usually do. Our capa
city for setting up advertisements was
not lessened materially, for they are
set largely by hand, but our linotype
machine could not run on account of
the )'"k of power, so of course we
couh lot get up our accustomed
amount of news.
The Advertiser Is indebted to The
Herald for help in getting up by hand
the type that we did get up and we
acknowledge here our obligations.
In spite of the bad weather and the
consequent lack of power, Tin- Adver
tiser, at this writing, hopes to greet
Its readers at the usual time.
When you begin to read this paper,
bear in mind the great difficulty under
.which the rural mall carriers and oth
er public servants have labored dur
ing the past few days. They are a
faithful band and we should give
thanks that such steadfast, men, and
women too, have In charge the deliv
ery of our mails.

OUR RAILROAD POSSIBILITIES.
The announcement, or rather ad
mission, of the C. & W. C. railroad
officials that great Improvements are
contemplated on that road will be re
ceived in Laurens with great Inter
est. ThJ people of this city have come
to realize that in that railroad now
rests her best hope for a trunk line.
Now that these Improvements are
about to be made and the C, C. & O. Is
contemplating the connecting link at
Elkhorn, Va., it Seems that the hopes
of the people here for better railroad
facilities aro soon to be realized. Of
even more advantage than the im
provement.** on the C. & W. C. would
fte the building of that connecting link
to a part.pf the, Chesapeake S Ohio Ry.
from Elkiiom ou the Clincufield. When '
this link is built and the Clinchfleld
has a direct connection with Chicago
r.nd the middle west. Laurens, being
on the C. & W. C?? would then enjoy '
all the advantages of trunk line con
r.ections. A glance at the map will ;
'. < . ;:::tt a line from Chicago and
Clncinnattl to Spartar.burg und on to
Charleston, by the cife W. C. is about
: s short a route as can be found and
It is natural to suppose that, on ac-1
count of the affiliation of these roads,
! this route would be the one most used.
When these Improvements are made
and developments at Charleston fol- !
low, we may (hen expect that long
iooked for through train for Augusta
and Charleston. And then. too. W?
may expect even better local sched
