Humorous Program. A Stunner.
All who like to kill two birds with
one stone can accomplish this feat on
next Friday night June 7th. when a
unique entertainment will be given at
the Opera House for the benefit of the
hospital. This cause Is a most worthy
one an dtho nufny bright musical uum
bers on the program will be enjoyed
by all. Mtb. Devereux Turner, of
Spartanburg .who, It will be recalled
by many, trained and directed the Wof
ford Fitting School Minstrel Club nnd
has put on other highly successful en
tentalnmonts In the former city nnd
elsewhere, has been In Laurens for the
past week drilling tho choruses nnd
soloists. The program will consist
of two parts, the first being In the
naturo of a mixed, mal? and female,
minstrel bill, followed by a sketch
called "Dixieland" as a vehicle for the
Introduction of all the popular and
familiar southern melodies. In this
act Mrs. Turner gives a portrayal of
an old negro Mammy (black face and
costume) that has been pronounced by
tho press, both North and South, as
true to the life and an artistic triumph
Speaking of "Dixieland" the Spar
tanburg Herald a short time ago said:
"The evening closed with an excel
lent example of southern plantation
life. Mrs. Turner was the star per
former. Too much praise could not
be given her work. Her acting, to
gether with her wonderful singing,
was splendid. The scene was highly
realistic with the singers Stopping be
fore the old negro cabin. Many old
southern songs were sung and so came
to a close a very delightful evening's
Mrs. Turner will have the assistance
of many of Laurens' best singers and
Mrs. Cora Lucas will preside at the
piano dining the "Dixieland" act.
Among prominent people to whom
Mrs. Turner refers are: Mr. John
Wood, of Chamber of Commerce, Spar
tanburg: President Henry Snydor, of
Wofford College; Prof. A. Mason Du

* TOP-DRESSING. ' *
Results obtained at the South Caro
line Experiment Station show that a
top-dressing with nitrate of soda gives
good results on cotton, corn and small
grains. The Increaso is most marked
during a wet year because this nitro
gen is already in an Immediately avail
able form, while the rotting of the
organic sources does not proceed as
rapidly as usual on account of the ex
< ess of moisture in the soil Tho
amount to apply per aero varies with
the fertility of the soil and the previ
ous fertilization, but we would sug
gest from fifty pounds per acre on
poor land up, according to the fertility
of the soil.
Early applications are coming into
favor. We recommend that the soda
be applied to corn when it is between
knee and waist high, to cotton just as
the shapes begin to form, and to small
grain in March. Care should be taker,
not lo sow nitrate or soda on wet
plants, because it is likely to scald
them. It Is best to apply It just af
ter a rain, when the moisture has dried
off of the leaves of the plants, then
cultivate with a mulch forming imple
ment as soon as the ground Is dry
enough to plow.

ALMOST .11 ADE ALL-SOUTHERN.
George Yeargln, of Gray Court, Bare
ly Hflsses Great Muse Ball Honor by
.1. W. tlelsnian, of Atlanta, has made
a list of the southern base hall play
ers whom he thinks are eligible to be
placed on the All Southern Team. This
team Is supposed to be composed of the
best college ball players in the south
and of course It Is quite an honor, ath
letically speaking, to be placed upon
it. George Yeargln, the Cray Court
boy who 1b playing with Clemson this
year, almost made this team. Ot him,
Mr. Helsinan says:
"Little Yeargln", of Clomson, has
about as good form at the job
(catcher) as any of them, and In the
bargain, he hits surprisingly woll, bis
average for the year being .340. Again
little fault can be found with his
pegging, and certainly he Is spry on
his feet. My big objection to him is
that be is too young and too small.
Roth these heinous crimes he may
live down, but 1 can't quite soo him
on the All-Southern this year?I
Now, the admirers of "Little Year
gin" do not admit of the argument put
forth by Mr. Hoisman why he was not
given a place In the line-up. If he
produces the goods, they think he
should have been placed on the team
regardless of his size and age. He
didn't make the Clemson team upon
any prowess as to age or size, but got
there because lie had the goods. Alex
ander the Great was but 32 years of
j age when he Conquered the world and

(or something like that). The support
ers of Yeargln go a little further and
even brave the elements enough to
spring thai old campaign joke about
the beardless candidate. Heard It,
haven't you? No? Surprised at you.
Well, there was once upon a time a
very small as well as young candidate
running for an office and against him
was running a very large, brusk and j
I bcwhlskorcd candidate. The big fei-i
low continued to harp on his oppo-1
lunt's ngc and youthful appearance.
In one of the campaign meetings where
' the lever got a little warm, the big fel
low was "speaking away" and paw
ing the earth. Pointing at his little
opponent, be asked the voters if they
were willing to support a young, beard
less fellow like that. The old follow
seemed to have the little one going for
I a few mcmciits, but not for long. The
little follow jumped up and replied by
I asking "If you voters want to get
something hairy in this offlco, you had
?better bring out a billy goat", llee

WITH A SELLING ORGANIZATION
Composed of 3 large reserve warehouses, 30 branches, and more than 3,500
Ford dealers, our business fingers are on the pulse of trade conditions. We
know from the insistent demand, that it will take at least 75,000 Ford Model T
cars to supply the wants of 1912.
This demand exists only because Ford Model T has "made good" with
more than 100,000 owners. You cannot get any better evidence of reliability.
Ford Model T must be a high quality car?it must be all we claim to give so
very many individual owners such continuous satisfaction.
To build 75,000 Model T cars will not, in any sense, stretch or strain the
producing capacity of the great Ford factory. It simply means a daily output
of 250 cars. We have, during the past, frequently turned out 300 cars a day.
In May, 1911, with 26 working days, our production was 6,013 cars. Thus,
with present facilities and our ordinary working force, 75,000 cars are but a
