To the Young Men
I feel so closely drawn to the Young Men of my town; those who
work year in and year out. making a good salary, that tind after
years of iahor. they are precisely where they began, nothing saved
up for that Rainy Day. or the time when hard times and sickness
overtake you and yon find that you are absolutely dependant upon
your credit, be it what it may, or have charity take charge of you.
Happiness is so dependant upon a contended mind, an absolutely
free and independent mode of living; no man realizes the truth of
this better than the young man. who finds himself all the time
cramped, never able to raise a few hundred when a need arises.
Such a condition will never confront you if you own a piece of Real
Make your start now; don't wait?REAL ESTATE holds out
to you a comfort and iecurity, that nothing else can offer.
Hanks may fail, men may pilfer, various enterprises and indus
tries may go down In ruin and decay, storms may sweep over the
land, carrying conflagration and terror with it, but "old Laurens
Dirt." will remain the same as if nothing happened.
Now, any man, getting a moderate salary can, with very little
effort and without any of the discomforts of economy, own a nice
Sit down and figure it out, just what you pay* out each year in
rent, then add to it about 1* per cent: its worth that much to live in
your own house: there is always some little something to be done,
and the man that you rent from doesn't think it necessary, there
fore you either do without or you pay it out of your own pocket.
If you are in your own house, why anything ppent in improving, you
get the benefit.
Look in to this matter carefully, talk it over with your wife and
when you have weighed the matter carefully rome to me and let's

the payments and you feel like censuring yourself for not buying
My friend. Just at this point you commence to live, prior to this
time you have simply existed, a kind of "hand to mouth" affair.
Now as to REAL ESTATE, as an investment: I will quote the
immortal language of Mr. Patric Henry: "I know of no way to
judge the future but. by the past.'" Apply this to REAL ESTATE
and what do you get for an answer?
All who have lived in Laur?ns (or any town for that matten
realize that property bought only six or eight years ago, could not
be bought now for two or three times what it sold tor then.
Why, if a man had come to you with, the proposition that he would
sell you a lot on Todd Ave. 75 ft. by 250 ft., for say $00.00, you
would have backed away from him, like you would from a man
utterly bereft of his faculties, instead of a benefactor In disguise.
How things have changed and in so short a time; think of it, you
cannot touch the same lot for less than $500.00 to $S00.0O.
You thought it was high then and you think it high still. This
is a progressive age. you must advance with the time; don't remain

ence and Scores Got. Hlease on his
(Dy S. B. Honey in News & Courier.)
Hampton, March G.?"Hurrah for
BleabO"?three little words, uttered
with no especial emphasis or degree
of enthusiasm, were nevertheless suf
ficient to call forth from Judge Ira
U. Jones, candidate for governor of
South Carolina, in his speech at the
Hampton High School today a ring
ing denunciation of the present admin
istration of the State and a call for
law-abiding and law-losing citizens to
end the regime, which he termed noth
ing short of anarchy In its tendency.
Judge Jones. from all indications,
would not have particularized, nor
would he have been so specific in his
charges against Governor Hlease, had
not the challenge been flung out by
some one in the audience. He was ;..
the midst of u disquisition lu the prin
ciples of good govern' lent and had
named the pPlars upon which society
and civilization must re3t to be secure,]
when the call came. To say that the (
speaker came back at Iiis challenger
would put it but mildly: ho came back
with all the fire of i is nature, and
from the glimpse of It today, there
appears to be an adequate supply of
that compound In his nuiKe-up The
challenge was like the spark to the
tinder; it was a crimson t'ag, !iau?.:
ed in the face of the monarch of the
"Hurrah for Hlease."
Naming the Courts of the land as
one of the four pillars upon which
society and civilization rested, 'udgi
Jones declared that any au- nc.' which
sought to nullify the acti of the courts,
or to impeach their power, or to in
sult them, was an enemy to society
and anarchy, pure and simple. Ob
viously, this was In reference to the
attitude which Governor Micas.- has
assumed toward?the courts and par
ticularly toward the Supreme Court
of South Carolina, and to what Judge
Jones evidently considered an abuse
of the pardoning power of the govern
or. Thereupon came the call from
the audience: "Hurrah for Hlease."
"Down with Anarchists."
"It makes no difference to me,"
flashed back the speaker as quickly
as though, "what you say of Hlease:
I say hurrah for civilization."
The audience applauded loudly. "Hur
rah for purity in public life, as well
as in private life." shouted Judge
Jones, and the audience applauded
more vigorously. "Hurrah for law and
order," and there was still greater
cheering. "Down with you Anarchists"
cried the speaker, and his hearers ap
plauded him again.
That Judge Jones has declared
Hleaseism a tendency toward anarchy,
which if continued for but a little
while longer, will cause the people of
South Carolina to hang their heads
in still greater shame, cannot be
doubted. Starting out to discuss gov
ernmental affairs and education in a
general way, he was called, and?he
showed his hand. None who heard him
enn have any doubts as to what atti
tude he bears toward the present
governor of South Carolina and his
policies; and none can fail to see the
lines upon which the fight will be
made this Stimmer. Judge Jones' op
ening speech indicates clearly that he
regards Hleaseism as anarchy and he
has sounded the call to what he re
gards as the law-abiding respectabil
ity of the State to -ally to his stand
ards and wipe it oet. Judge Jones
has thrown down the gauntlet.
Hlease Not Present.
Governor Hlease was not present at
the meeting today. The occasion was
tho dedication of the handsome new
school building at this place and both
Governor Hlease and Judge Jones, to
gether with State 8uperln'.endent of
Education J. E. Swearingen had. been
invited to attend the exercises and do
llver addresses upon sublet * of their
own choosing. It was significantly
stated in the invitations that politics
would not be barred. This attracted
a great crowd and had not the weath
er conditions been so disagreeable
there would doubtless have beon three
thousand people In Hampron today As
It was, there wero fully fifteen hun
dred, not all of whom, however, at
tended the exercises at the school
house. The one question of the day
was: "Why did Governor Hlease no*
come?" Some time ago he accepted
the Invitation, with the reservation
that If pressing work require 1 his
presence In Columbia he would not at
tend. In a 'etter yesterday to Mr. B.
F. Hammard, editor of the Farmers'
Review, a local newspaper. Governor
Hlease stated that he had important
work in Columbia and would, though
he regretted it. be forced to decline the
invitation, giving as a reason that
since the Legislature had remained
in session so long the work was heavy.
Hut from the comment heard on all
sides, there was still a great deal of
questioning In the minds of the people.
"If he could not come here today be
cause of his work, how could he go
up to Blacksburg the other day when
the Legislature was Just about to ad
journ," was a question propounded by
some one. Another remark was: "All
I the bills passed by the Legislature
and all the appointments to be made
had to be done by yesterday, and why,
could he not come?" The people of
wanted to bear Governor Hlease: of
which there can be no doubt. It is
generally certain that these people are
disappointed that he did not attend, j
Strenuous effort was made to get him:
a long distance call was made for him
yesterday, in addition to the written
Another point that caused comment
was that Governor Hlease ought to
have come to Hamilton because It was
one of his counties In the campaign of
1M0. his vote then being 03?> as against
729 for Featherstone. "His failure to
attend the meeting 'today.*' said a
prominent citizen of the county in
talking with the News and Courier rep
resentative, "has hurt him a great
deal, and It will surprise me if he car
ries the county in the coming elec
tion," Without fear of contradiction
it may be stated that this question of
why Governor Hlease gave Hampton
i the go-by was asked many, many times
I today, and the people appeared to at
tach a great deal of importance to it.
Both Barrels Loaded.
Judge Jones prefaced his remarks by
the statement that he hardly knew
what to do or say under the circum
stances; that he had been invited to
attend school dedication exercises;
that he was informed that a discussion
of political matters would not be
amiss. "But," said the speaker, "I find
that I have no antagonist in a political
debate. However, I came down with
both barrels loaded?to talk politics or
education.*' He referred to Governor
Blease's statement that "Judge Jones
will be a Btateman without a Job,"
saying that he thanked the governor
for at least considering him a states
man, but that as for a job, be was
already out of a job.
"To Heat Hlease."
"I have no Job," declared Judge
j Jones, "except to beat Hlease."
II "If I am a statesman," said the
speaker, "I hope to be able, like that
! great statesman of South Carolina.
! John C. Calhoun, to say a saving word
at a critical time. But If I had but
one word to say that would bo 'edu
cate your children.' " Judge Jones de
I Glared that there were four pillars up
on which society and civilization, to
stand, must be founded: the home, the
school, the church and the courts.
"Teach your children to honor their
fathers and mothers." advised* the
speaker, "not to honor them in a pas
sive manner only, but teach them that
they may do something and be some
thing that will be an honor to their
parents, to themselves and to their
country. And In your schools, teach
the heart as well as the mind, for the
educated mind without the educated
heart is a danger accentuated." Judge
Jones then entered Into a brief but
well put eulogy of the ministry, and
the powerful influence of the church
in the community.
Hlease and Pardon?.

he regarded as the safeguard of the
