Any calculations its to the amount
Of acreage reduction this year Is till
guess work. One thing is certain,
though, and thai Is that the fertilizer
sales are a great deal less than last
year. If the acreage and fertilizer
have been cut in the same proportion.
South Carolina's crop should be about
the right size this year.
When GoV. Please was asked at
Newberry about the graft charges
made against him by Mayor Grace, the
governor only replied that it was
"news to me". Further than that he
has never said a word. A high sense

can be accused of accepting grnft and
then not even make any attempt to
deny l or resent the accusation,

A SOUTHERN TRUST.
The people of Greenwood and Groen
Ville are raising objection to the new
rates to bo inaugurated by the fire in
surance companies in the Southeastern
Tariff Association. Tho paper.; In the
two cities arc beginning an agitation
to see that the rates are not changed.
The rates are bolng raised all over
South Carolina and, we believe, all ov
er the south. Certain it is that the rate
on houses occupied by tenants are be
ing raised in the south and not in the
north. The tariff association is a com
bination In restraint of trade and has
reached the proportions that require
federal Interference. This new rate
qustlon Is one that should serve as a
basis on which to make a fight against
this illegal combination.

THE SIIILOII SCHOOL.
In another column of this paper will
be found nn appeal to the patrons of
the Shiloh school to vote the addition
al two mill tax levy Saturday. The
Advertiser is not exactly familiar with
the conditions at the Shiloh school
excopt as they are set forth In this
article and from Information recelvod
through private channels. There seems
to be some doubt about the election
being carried for the levy. In fact,
It Is hinted that, if those who oppose
the additional levy have a majority at
this election, another petition is to be
circulated to vote on taking off the
two mill levy already voted for. The
Advertiser hopes that there Is no such
sentiment In the Shiloh neighborhood.
I We hope that Shiloh will not allow it
I to be said that It is to be among all
other school districts in the county the
one to recede from the educational
movement which has been so noticea
ble In Laurens county for the past few
years. Shiloh school has occupied a
prominent place in the county for the
past few years. It bus been one of the
eight schools so far advanced and sup
ported as to be in a position to take
advantage of the appropriations made
by the state government. It has been
one of the leading schools of the coun
ty. It's pupils have taken a high
stnnd In the different contests of the
county, both in literary affairs and in
agricultural contests. The community
certainly has profited by this educa
tional advancement and certain it Is
that If the good work is continued that
the future years will show beautiful
results. Shiloh cannot allow other
portions of the county and other por
tions of the state to forge ahead of her.
She has taken a stand with the rest
of them and she must toe the mark or
sink back into second place. The
children now being raised will In fu
ture years look back with an accusing
flngor if they are not now given the
' opportunities given other children.
Men of Shiloh. let It not be said that
your children are to be reared under
the same disadvantages which you
were raised. Your fathers were not
able to afford you educational oppor
tunities. You are able to afford them
to your children. Let it not be said
i that you took it away from them. Vote
for the additional levy Saturday and
give to your children the opportuni
ties which you did not enjoy and which
you probably see the need of today.
Vote for the levy and go home feeling
'. assured of having performed a duty
! well done.

TWO PRESENTATIONS OF "SAUL."!
Choral Society Gave Two 1'Joncert8
Lust Week nt Woodruff and Clinton.
?Around 1100 In Treasury.
The Laurens Choral society gave the
last two of a series of four presenta
tions of "Saul. King of Israel" at
Woodruff and Clinton last week. Wood
ruff was visited Tuesday evening, the
trip being made In automobiles kindly
loaned by generous 'owners. The
Woodruff people accorded the society
a very hourly reception. A large and
appreciative audience came out to hear
the cantata and evidently It was thor
oughly enjoyed. A number of the
singers were entertained over night by
the hospitable people of Woodruff.
Thursday evening the trip was raado
to Clinton, where a rather small but
cultured and appreciative audience wit
nessed the presentation of the cantata.
Though the two weeks of continuous
work had wearied numbers of the sing
ers, the performance here1 was quite
up to the standard and was greatly
enjoyed. The lndlvldluals of the so
ciety were cordially received by the
Clintoninns, a number of the early ar
rivals being entertained at tea and the
othera being furnished every conve
nience for preparation.
Though the society is doing a good
work in affording splendid muslcul
entertainment for the home people and
for the people of the towns they visit,
the financial side has not been lost
sight of. The entertainments are giv
en for charitable purposes. The pro
ceeds arc divided between Laurens or
ganizations and organizations of the
towns visited. The total proceeds from
these four entertainments amount to
around $185. How the portion belong
ing to the choral society will be ap
portlonol has not yet been decided.
The choral society has still several
engagements to fill in neighboring
communities and these are being look
ed forward to with great pleasure.
To the Patrons of Slllloli School.
The crying reed of our country to
day, especially the South. Is better ed
ucation. Education tends to uplift
humanity, and where we find educated
people we find a better community.
John Milton, the great writer, in his
definition of education says, "I call
a complete education that which fits
a man to perform justly, skillfully, and
magnanimously all the offices, both
privat?; and public, of peace and war."
Can you afford to lower this standard
of education and by sending your boys
and girls to school only a few month..
In the year and call them educated:
The offices of this country will in an
other decade or less be tilled with the
schoolboys of today. Are your boys
going to receive their share of the
honor, or will the hoys from some oth
er school get your boys' places be
cause the other boys are better edu
cated and prepared for the places?
How are you in prepare your boys for
the duties which will open up before
them? The means of attaining this
education lie before you.
Shiloh has been one of the state
aided high schools, hut has lost the
high school, and will yon, as citizens
of Shiloh district, let her lose her
reputation as one of the best schools
In the county, and reduce the school
term to four months? Cnless you
rouse every spark of manhood within
you that la what will bo done. The
trustees of the school are now strug
gling to raise enough money by 2 mill
tax to get state aid. There is already
a 2 mill tax. and by voting an extra
2 mills you will get about $201, more
or less, and $200 from the state, and
with the other school money can run
your school seven months with three
teachers, otherwise, your school will
bo cut down to about three or four
months. Aro you as patrons of the
school, citizens of the county, and
fathers of boys and girls going to vote
against paying the paltry sum of Ic
on every $10, and say you nrofer to
educate your own children and not
have those not Interested in the school
pay tax to educate them. If there are
men and women in your district not
interested In education, whether they
are patrons of your school of not, your
community would be better off with
out them, and they would he better in
a colony to themselves. You may say
the school is as good as when you
wont to school. It Is, but If you don't
want your children to have better ed
ucation than you, you need to be in
the colony with the "not Interested."
Raise the standard of your school,
regain Its roputatlon, and acquit your
selves like' mon. X.
