DAY OF GLADNESS
DAY OF SORROW
The Ladles will bo ??II Smiles Tomer
row, While the Men ?Iii Look Like
Week-old Circulars on a Telephone
Tomorrow is opening day. Opening
day with the ladles is more to be
looked forward to than Christinas with
the little ones. Anticipation of it to
the menfolks has the same effect as
the dreaded visit to tho dentist. To the
ladios, thlB day means the opening
of tho fashions of the year with the
large hats, trimmings and furbelos. To
the husband and father it means the
opening up of the family pocket hook.
Hut then, after it's all over, the effect
is the same; the ladies ore satisfied and
so are the men, especially the sin
The openings in Laurens this year
will bo confined to two stores,
Messrs. Davis-Roper Co., and Switzer
Company. Tho buyers for both of
these concerns went north In the
early part of the season and bought
as they usually do, the best lines of
hats and notions that the market can
afford for tho prices which their cus
tomers aro willing to pay. It is a
well known fact that these two stores,
more so than in the case of millinery
stores in other cities of this size, have
buyers who aro above the ordinary In
tasto and good judgment. For this
reason the ladies of Laurens have al
ways been able to afford tue neatest
and newest hats and the most fash
ionable clothes and at the same time
not. he forced lo pay such fabulous
prices. Being men of Ion:; o perienee
and wide acquaintanceship with their
special lines, they have always me*
the smart salesmen of the northern
markets on an equal fooling and have
consequently gotten the full benefit of
Davis-Roper Company have a; their
head milliner this y. ar, Miss Blanche
Smyth, of Baltimore. Her assistants
are Miss Hessie Crew3, Mrs. Chalmers
Armstrong and Mrs. Thomas Downey.
All of these ladies, with the exception
of Miss Smyth, have been with this
company before and are well known
to all the people of the county. They
will be prepared to show everything
of the latest and newest patterns at
Switzer Company has in charge of its
millinery department Miss Mary Wyn
koop, of Philadelphia. Though Miss
Wynkoop is here for her first season,
she has already made a number of
frlbuds. She has as her assistants
Miss Clara Swltzor, Miss Ruth Lang
.ston and Miss Marguerite Miller. They
have been working night and day for
tho past week and tomorrow they will
be prepared to show a beautiful lino
of hats and other articles.

The World's l??st Chickens.
Mow to Get Kggs in Winter.
This question, that lias so often been
asked, is answered at last: Get the
Write Orpington. The White Orping
ton was made by crossing the White
Leghorn on the BlacK Hamburg. Their
pullets were mated to a White Dorking
cock, giving in return the beautiful
bird we have in the White Orpington.
They are an English breed that are
*ast crowding out all other breeds
there and in America. Is today the
most popular chicken raised; they
have proved their merits and It is
impossible to put them in the wrong
place. Out laying all other breeds in
the noted cgg'competltlons; they have
excelled all other breeds in winter
laying; they are open-air, cold weath
er fowls that lay just as well at zero
as at any other temperature, yet
Btrange to say, are just as goo<' lay
ers In hot weather; they suit all cli
mates from the coldest to the hottest?
proving their merits In all. They are
tho first and only combination meat
and egg breed to excel the egg breeds
In laying. The Mediterranean breeds
fall off In laying in cold weather; If
you keep them warm they get sick.
Not so with White Orpingtons; they
will keep your egg basket well filled
in return for the care you give them.
They excel all large breeds in the
quality of their meat. Their skin is
thin and tender and meat juicy, not
coarse with thick skin like other large
breeds; they weigh 1 pound more than
any other clean legged chicken rais
ed; mature very rapidly. Cannot be
excelled as early broilers. When
properly pushed will weigh 2 pounds
at 8 weeks old. Tho little chicks
seem to have unusual vitality, very
easy to raise, scarcely ever lose a lit
tle White Orpington unless by acci
dent. Pullets often lay at four and
one-half months old, continuing all
winter, laying nice large brown eggs.
The White Orpingtons are noted for
their beauty in appearance that no
other chickens possess; their snow
white plumage, white beaks, white
feet and legs, white skin, bright red
combs and red eyes gives them that
gentle look that no other fowl pos
sesses. They lire especially noted
for their deep bodies and broad full
breasts; their long, straight breast
bone carrying almost as much white
meat as is found upon a turkey. They
are good mothers, but easy to break
from sitting; in a few days will be
laying again. They are so quiet and
gentle, never fly, easj to be confined
in yards, doing just as well as when
on free range: yet when they have
their liberty, they are splendid for
agers, picking up most of their liv
ing without disturbing growing crops.
