With the first Issue settled In the
democratic convention, let us hope
that no more contentions will arise.

Wouldn't It be embarrassing if some
reporter would ask Bryan today if he
would be a candidate for the presi
dency?

With a solid front the democrats
will defeat a divided republican party.
But, will It remain dlrtded? If not,
a glorious fight will be on.

-DONE" WHAT I
As they would say In Lauren?. Of
fficers Elledge and Major done their
duty, anyhow.?Greenwood Journal.
? ? ?
The Advertiser is glad to note In
its county correspondence from week
to week that the large gasoline trac
tor, purchased by tho county last year,
is doing good work upon the roads. No
doubt this is a great time saver and
consequently a money saving machine.
? ? ?
Will some one please answer this
question: What motive can the
press of South Carolina have in sup
porting-Judges Jones for governor
other than a desire to see the office
filled by a :nan whom the finger of
scorn and derision cannot be ,/-.'nted
at??Gaffney Ledger.
? ? ?
Blease'.s strongest platform is that
he stands by his friends. As a matter
of fact he stands by his friends so long
as his friends are of some benefit to
.him and just so long as his fr'ends'
enemies do not bring too much pres
sure to bear. Witness Grace and
Cheshire. Both of them have with
drawn their support from him because
he would not stand by them.
? ? ?
Considerable discussion has been
aroused about the proposed ornament
al posts and electric lights for th ^
court house lawn. Large electric
lights upon handsome posts would be
far more striking and beautiiul tnan
would a "great white way" which so
many cities are proud of. Let s get
down to work and fix the lawn up righ*
Tell you. when we get through im
pro\ing this public square and court
house, the ciiy is goillfc i j lOuii likv
something. Things are brightening
up.
? ? ?
A rough r-.-.-.imate has been made of
the cost of twenty five posts with
lights upon them to go upon the
??treets and corners around the court
house. It is thought that the cost for
that many would be around 1900 in
stalled * We are inclined to think
that twenty five would hardly be need
ed, since each post would have sev
eral lights upon them, but certainly
it would be fine to have as many as
^vill be really needed. Our public
square would be a thing of beauty
and something to be proud of If it
were properly lighted.
? ? ?
The Advertiser is not standing up
for Mayor Grace. It does not know
much about him. His campaign against
Rhett was not to our taste nor were
many other of his activities. But!
It seems to us that the recent de
velopments around tbe Charleston
liquor graft situation are fairly con
elusive evidence that Grace has not
been on the graft side of the ring
himself. If it were so that he had
ber.n receiving graft from any single
one of the whiskey dealers, he would
have been too wise and cautious to
bring the charges against Gov. Bluase.
He would have known that alliances,
made with such a class of people as
are blind tigers and with no other
friendship holding them together
than that of selfish gain for boodle,
are not binding and are liable to break
on the least provocation or for slight
monetary considerations.
BALL GAMES FOR THE FOURTH.
ATatte Mill Team I'laj- Drajton Mera
inr and Afternoon. Good Game*
Certain. Another Game ?xt Sat
urday.
The Great and .Glorious Fourth of
July will be fittingly celebrated this
year, at Watts Mills with a couple of
games of hilarious baseball. Both
games will be played with Dray ton
Mills of Spartanburg, which afore
said team barely escaped alive In a
two to one contest with Watts a cou
ple of Saturdays ago. The ^ two are
therefore pretty evenly matched and
a battle royal is expected. The first
game will be called In the morning
at 10:30 and the second at 4.00 in the
afternoon.
The Watts aggregation laid it over
the Enoree gang last Saturday with a
?core of 13 to 3. The locals pasted
the sphere all over the garden, while
the visitors were unable to make
connection with the twisters and bend
ers of Hill the home slabeter. Fisher
as usual starred with the stick, slam
ming out a homer, a triple, and Just
two doubles in fire times up. He was
gently relieved of a hit In the ninth
by a one hand stab by Byrd of the
Enoreeans.
Next Saturday aWtts mixes up with
the crack Mollohon team hailing from
Nawberry.
Card of Thank*.
The relatives and associates of the
late R. Wiatar Nichols desire in this
manner to express their thanks to
the many friends, acqualntences and
hospital attendants who zo kindly and
generously tended him and assisted
In many other ways in his recent
sickness and death. All these and
those who were so /elicltous as to his
condition are asked to accept slncero
est thanks and to rest assured that
everything done was deeply appre
ciated. i

FIRE FIGHTERS OFF.
Chief Crews and his Team of Firemen 1
are in Reek Hill Attending the An
nnal Tournament.
The Laurens fire department is
represented at Rock Hill this week
where the annual tournament and bus
iness-meeting will be held. The com
pany's big horse, Henry, and the light'
wagon were shipped to Rock Hill se\> |
\ eral days ago and the team followed
' yesterday. The Laurens boys are
confident of taking down some of the
prize money this time. I-ast year
they made good runs as they did the
year before, but some how or other
' they Just didn't go quite fast enough
' or even as fast as they had gone in
! practice. This year, however, some
( new faces are found in the lineup and
it is hoped that this will change the
"luck" and bring the team out vic
torious. The papers will be eagerly
watched from day to day to see how
they come out.
The team is in charge of Chief I
Crews. The following are the others |
of the team:
Thos. M. Dlvver, Asst. Chief and
Captain. s
William Swltzer. Lineman.
Ed.v Hicks, Asst. Lineman.
Clyde Fowler, Butman.
James T. Crews, Jr.. Noizleman.
Len Rounds, Brakeman.
James Davenport. Driver.
Brooks Chlldress.
Amos Gilliam.

this city, died at the home of his son

his advanced age. His death, though
not unexpected, was received with sor
row by all who knew him. He was in
the 78th year and had always lived a|
consecrated upright life. The body
was carried to his old home near
Peake Sunday afternoon, where it was |
Interred with Masonic honors.
Sustained Painful Injuries.
Mr. Harland E. Cartledge. an em
ploye at the freight depot of the C.
& W. C. and C. N. & L. railroad, met
with a severe accident Monday after
noon, resulting in two broken ribs |
and other minor Injuries. Mr. Cart,
ledge was attempting to go from the
station platform Into one of the box
cars, when the large steel plate used
In crossing slipped and threw him
head-foremost Into the door. He fell
upon hla side upon the door sill, break
ing the two bones, and at the samel
time the large steel plate struck him
'n the back of the head. He was Im
mediately carried by friends to the
Gllkerson House, where he boards.
He Is now getting along as well as
j could be expected. The many friends
j which he ha3 made since coming here
some months ago hope for his early
recovery. Mr. Cartledge formerly llv-|
ed In Augusta.

A Protest
Bditor The Advertiser:
I notice in your last week's paper
that you say that city council is ar
ranging to repair West Main street
and South Harper street and as you
have shown a spirit of "outspoken
ness" and a disposition to help "fair
play," I am writing as a citizen and
taxpayer to ask you to publish my pro
test against our city council further
favoring the sections of our city re
ferred to above until they have at
least been just to some other sections
as deserting of favor and in much
greater need.
On West Hampton street, where I
live. It Is necessary that we Jump
ditches and wade through mud when
It rains In order to got to and from
our residences. If our "city fathers"
think this Is an overdrawn picture,
let them, after the next rain, Inspect
for themselves. But I advise they
have Brother Henderson carry them
on his road working machinery or
they might find It necessary to call
on him to use his splendid team of
mules to pull them out of the mud
and convey them back to the already
well paved main streets.
There are some sections of our
town which have never had luatlce.
Some time ago, when wo voted bonds
to pave the side walks of our town,
It was understood, after a survoy by
a competent engineer, that we were
raising enough money to pare tue
walks of the tntlre town, but my own, .
with other sections, have not been "
touched, while Main street has been
paved Its entire length on both sides.
I only want fair play and call on
citizens who have a like complaint to
join me In an effort to get Justice.
Thanking you for this indulgence,
Yours very truly,
J. W. Paine.
June 24, 1912.

cheapest line of Refrigerators in the
