* THE CULO.iAL SOCIETY.
Editor of Advertiser:
As a citizen of I.aureus who is in
terested in all that concerns her wel
fare, will you permit, me to speak a
word of appreciation for an organiza
tion that is quietly doing a great and I
good work for this community. The
reference is to the Laurens Choral
Beginning as a voluntary associa
tion of a few music lovers from the
different choirs of the city, I under
stand thoy have since perfected an or
ganization with the usual complement
of ollleers such as president, secretary
and treasurer and so on, and also in
creased their membership by the ad
mission of such as are able and will
ing to assist: so that now tho society
numbers some forty odd. Since tho
first of this present year they have
given some five or six performances
for charitable purposes at home and
abroad, that have realized between
three and four hundred dollars for
Worthy causes besides affording pleas
uro to hundreds of people. Tho work'
they do is no longer that of amateurs.
Some of us who enjoyed "The Naza
rene" of last year never supposed thai
its excellence would be surpassed but
"Saul. King of Israel"' marks an ad
vance. Such Choral and individual
work does not come by chance. It
shows work and real work, on the
part of both trainer and trained. Any
community is fortunate in numbering
among its citizens such musicians and
vocalists and no better advertisement
could be given of the tastes and tal
ent of our community than that being
given us by the pirollc performances
of the Lnttrons Choral Society. Sue
cess and long life to them is the wish
A Bald Head.
I hereby announce myself as a can
didate for the office of County Com
missioner and promise to abide by the
rostllt of the Democratic primary.
