Our esteemed local contemporary
is respectfully reminded that now is
the time to get another line of talk
going about the use of your split-log
drags. This is a subject that will
Ftand a great deal of discussion and
eventually bring about results Lau
Yes, the time has come again. In
fact, every time It rains it is in order
to say something to encourage the
use of the split log drag. It's a great
Institution and we hope to hear of
more Laurens county's substantial
farmers and business men getting on
to the split log drag habit. Let's have
some more of them. The work Is good
and should continue.
Those who have used the drag and
seen the results of their work come
to naught, on account of a succeeding
inrush of waters, should not become
discouraged, but should go at it again.
'What would some of the Laurens coun
ty roads have come to during the

It is quite possible that this spell
of rnlny weather will be broken with

Tho Advertiser requests that next

The names will he published in a con

THE PUBLIC SERVICE.
Wednesday afternoon of last week
a representative of The Advertiser
had a talk with Mayor Habb. hi which
Mr. Rnbb stated a few things in con- J
nection with the recent agitation as
to the water and power service.
in the first place, Mayor Habb .-'at
ed that Mr. .1. E. Philpot Is nn sup
erintendent of the city's waterworks
and electric light plant, that the city
has no superintendent, Mr. Philpot
taking all orders from him, Mr. Phil
pot's only specilied work being read
ing of the metres.
He also stated that Wednesday
morning, before he was aware of any
article In The Advertiser, he went to
several members of the city council
and informed them that he intended
ordering a motor to be placed at the
power station to run the va.cas tired
in connection with the filter plant. He
stated that the reason the water had
not been clear of late was because of
the fact that the power now at the
station was not sufficient to pull hese
rakes and that in the future, after the
arrival of the motor, he anticipated
no more trouble with the water.
As to the order given the negro at
the power house, not to cut off the
current except at the order of Mayor
Habb or Mr. Philpot, Mr. Babb stated
that the power lines were so arranged
at the station that If the current were
cut off during a fire the force pumps
could not run and proper pressure
could not he secured. He also, said
that the negro had misunderstood his
orders as he had told him not to cut
off the current except In cases of
emergency. The reason that the or
ders were given, he stated, was be
cansed during the past few weeks,
patrons of the telephone line had got
ten in the habit of calling up the pow
er station and demanding that the
current he cut off every time one of
the city's power lines happened to
brush against the telephone lines.
This order, therefore. Mr. Habb states,
was given in the interest of better
servile rather than lor poorer ser
vice. Piro Chief Crews, it might be
also stated, and Mayor Habb came
to an understanding later during the
WC? k and Mr. Habb consented to give
orders at the power house to shut off
the v arrent upon the order of Chief
Crews, through any of his firemen.
Now that the power cannot be shut
off at the beck and call of everybody,
Mr. Babb hopes that no longer will
the interruptions continue. In this
connection. Mr. Habb stated that there
was no danger to bo feared from the
power lines coming in contact with
the telephone lines. If they should
happen to cross, he said, the power
line would almost instantly burn the
telephone line in two pieces and the
current would thus be automatically
The Advertise trusts that the ser
vice in tho future will be as good as
the citizens have a right, now, to hope
for. Mr. Rabb thinks that hereafter
the service will be all that should be
expected and if it should be. no one
will be quicker to say so than The Ad

AN OPEN LETTER
TO HIS FRIENDS
II. Terry the Enterprising "Busy
Corner" Merchant Writes to His
Friends from Baltimore.
Mr. H. Terry, who has been in the
northern markets for the past week or
ten days selecting goods for the spring
trade, has written a letter to his
friends about his trip. He Is now in
Baltimore, after spending some time
in New York. He says:
Baltimore, Mr.., March 11, 1912.
Dear Friends: ?
Well, here I am (on my way home
from New York) in Baltimore "the
Convention City". Here in Baltimore
there are great preparations going on
for the Democratic Convention in .lane
1912. Dozens of committees have been
appointed and they are working over
time. I met several members of the
Greater Baltimore Committee and to
satisfy my curlpsity, went up and In
spected the wonderful convention hall
The hall will seat comfortably more
than 12,000 people. Normal. Mack,
chairman of the Democratic Conven
tion says it will be practically a per
fect Convention Hall, when a few more
exits hnve been made. It's Maryland
and Fifth Regiment Armory, you know
But goodness me- Here I am talking
convention when it is about spring
merchandise that I want to tell about.
Most of my new spring stock 1 bought
In New Yfrk, the cheapest wholesolo
market In the world. But 1 didn't buy
in New York until I had been in Bal
timore and had seen what they had to
offer me. Believe me, 1 have some
genuine bargains to offer you Here
are just a few that pop into my mind.
A very strong line of Misses and
Children's ready to wear dresses.
Exquisite embroidery flouncing and
laces, tlouncings from 25c per yard up
to $1.50. Extra good laces from 5c
per yard and up.
Boy's rompers and wash suits, and
pants and good strong shoes.
I've spent two weeks seeing all
there is to be seen in spring and
summer styles and take my word for
it, when 1 get back home. 1 will show
you the slickest stock you've seen in
many a day. I will be back about
March Kith and about March loth the
goods will be all out of the cases
ready for you.
This is a long letter and 1 must call
a halt, but in closing lot me insist that
you come to my store, at once and in
spect the goods I have here for you, at
the "Busy Corner."
Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portions of lin
ear. There is only one way to cure
deafness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
Inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the Eustncblan Tube. When this
tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or Imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed, deafness is the
result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube re
stored to its normal condition, bear
ing will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh
which Is nothing hut an Inflamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot he cured by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free.
