* Lisbon Locals.
Lisbon, March 15.?Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Mil am and Charles. Jr., of
Cainden came up to spend a while with
Mr. MHam's mother and brother.
We arc pleased to state that the
Hon. A. J. Smith is on the improve,
and wc hope to bo able to state in
our next letter that he will soon be
his usual self again.
The farm work is at a stand still
yet, and wo see no chance of doing
much for several days yet. The rain
came in groat torrents last night, and
continued up to noon today. The
public roads are getting to be impas
sable, and we can't see how the farm
ers can got In the fertilizers before
tho first of April, after which we
may have time to get in some early
planting of cotton, and nine times]
out of ten it Is the cotton that pays.
Thfs date last year your correspond
ent had one of his bottom land in ap
ple order ready to plant corn, with
very near all his cotton land broke
with two horse Chattanooga 43 plows,
up to dato wc have not run a furrow.
We are glad to state that some of
our farmers arc going to cut the for
tlii/er bills in half, while others will
use from one-fourth to one-third less.
Wc feel that providence plays the most
important part in what we make on
the farm, though some farmers think
that fertilizer will save labor and
make more, but our experience about
using groat quantities of fertilizers is
that it takes more hands and that
takes more money. These guano peo
ple are getting about one-half of what
the farmers arc making. I venture the
assertion that if we would give them
our lands, and let them keep the re
pairs, pay tho tax, they would refuse
to take us up. In the first place why
should they, when we keep up the
repairs, pay the tax. and then oversee
and turn in all the cash that is avail
able, in the fall for nothing. In other
words our guano bills foot up mon
than all the rest of our bills. We
inclined to think like our friend Watt?
we will have to turn our attention
to other things outside of cotton. Wo
your humble correspondent is planting
less cotton this time, have the oats
up from last October, sowing nisi
wheat, now preparing to sow bean
less barley to help tho rye patch that
is looking lino right at this time Xo\

Mr. Gaarden, a geodedlc observer
and coast surveyor of the United
States government, spent last week
in town. On the school grounds about
200 feet north of the building, he
sank a granite post with a brass plate
in the top of it, to mark the spot from
which he took his observations. On
the hill across the valley directly
north was another rock post set up,
thus establishing the first true merid
ian for the County of Laurens. Fri
day morning Mr. Gaarden made a talk
to the high school pupils. He told the
nature of his work and explained the
mechanism of the instruments that
he used. These men are not allowed
to give out tho result of their work
until their calculations have been
properly verified- at the home office,
but from his talk we learned that the
magnetic needle points almost direct
ly north, the line of zero declination
passing about through Laurens; that
the dip of the needle is about 66 de
grees; that the latitude of Laurens is
nmout 2:> Vi degrees.
I A very interesting debate by four
pupils of the ninth grade, took place
in the school auditorium last Friday
morning. The subject was: "Resolved,
that man has more influence on na
ture, than nature has on man." Caro
line Roper and .lames Milam were on
the affirmative side, while Wales Wat
son and Hayno Taylor took the nega
tive side. The judges, selected from
the tenth grade decided in favor of

Niagara Falls is only a lew miles
from Buffalo. The Niagara is one of
the most wonderful rivers in the world
Some of its water.; come from Lake
Superior. 'I he mighty waters are
poured from the Erie Basin into that;
Of Lake Ontario, which is three lain
died and thirty feet below.
The volume of water which flows be
tween the banks of the Niagara is so
great that every minute more than
half a million tons of water are drop
ped over the falls. As tho water
moves slowly on until it conies with
in a mile of the falls, the river be
comes narrower, the rapids begin, and
you see the waters boiling as they
sweep among rocks and about islands.
They foam as they dash about Coat Is
land, which lies on the edge of the
falls, and then take their hundred and
sixty foot leap downward into the
great abyss below.
For the next seven miles the river
flows through a ravine, the banks of
Which rise almost straight upward foi
two or three hundred feet above the
water, until they pass Lewiston at the
I end of the gorge, when they suddenly
become rjulef and How peacefully on
into Lake Ontario.
On our right are the American
Palls, as high hut not so wide as the
Horseshoe Falls, which extends, in
the shape of a great orescent, to the
shore of Canada, on our left.
The water thunders as it goes over
the rock. Tile noise is so great that
it is said it can be heard forty miles
Tho cave of the winds is rlghl un

There are great whirlpools and
rapids above it, and a great steel arch
brldgo which crosses the Niagara, con
necting Canada with the United
States, from which you can get a fine
view of the falls.
The bridge is a great wonder itself.
It crosses right over the raging tor
rent. It is a mighty arch of steel,
with a span of five hundred and fifty
feet, which Is said to be the largest
In the world. It Is two and ninety
feet long, and the bridge weight sev
en million pounds.
Another great piece of engineering
connected with Niagara Falls Is the
tunnel which has been built to harness
a part of this Immense water power
and make it work for man. In the
tunnel, pits havo been sunk for the
Insertion of Immense turbine wheels
which are driven round and round by
the water as it falls upon them. Dyna
mos are attached to each wheel for the
generation of electricity. The elec
tricity Is used to run many factories
near the falls, and nearby cities.

One Price to Everybody
Ford Model T is the highest quality car made in ( lie world, bar none.
A striking illustration of this fact was evidenced in a test made by the gov
ernment of France in December, 1910, when they pitted the materials of the
Ford car against those of the best, highest priced car made in France, The
test was for "traction and shock." Ford Model T was 30 per cent, greater in
elasticity, 50 per cent, stronger and 25 per cent, better under shock.
The very fact that there are now over ioo,ouo Foul ears in Operation is the v< ry
best evidence of the quality of materials used in its construction. Co where you will, you
will find more than ten Pord cars to one of any other make, and this could not be so if the
quality was not in the materials used in Pord Model T.
We have the demand; we have the factory facilities and capacity; we have Ihe money;
we have the selling organization, and we are going to make and sell 75,000 Pord Model '1
cars for the year 1912.
The roads will be in good condition shortly and automobiles can be used li^'lit along.
By expert skilled machanics who thoroughly
undestand the delicate adjustments necessary
who take pride in their work and achieve results
that will astonish you.
Now is the time to have your car thoroughly
overhauled, values ground in, engine freed of car
bon, replacement of worn parts-have it in shape
for another season's hard use.
