As One Ardent Supporter of the Col

Editor The Advertiser:
"Education forms the common mind
as the twig is bent the tree is In
clined." At this time the quotation
Is apropos for had K-aurens years
ago striven to higher education col
leges would have been here and If
we fall to get this much coveted one
in Chicora, then Pope's dictum that
the twig was bent wrong Is confirmed
for it simply means we were and are
yet too material.
A bank account is a good thins,
but knowledge Is power also. Selfish,
material and cold blooded Indeed
would be any parent who would hold
money In lieu of that light of intellect,
that refined air, that ease and gra
olousneas, that adorns a pretty maid
en. You hear of nature unadorned
in the wild imagination of some au
thor's mountain heroine, but she is a
fake; that author wns probably writ
ing looking into the refined face and
pretty eye of a Vassar girl, this the
inspiration and the Vis a tergo an

Talk of education. Hadn't you
rather Incline on such support than
an ordinary rustic bench?
So with one accord let's all of ev
ery sect and station affirm with a
virile "Yes, we will," ralso the money,
and not the puerile question "Can
we raise It?"
If wo do not, let's go away back
and sit down until Halley's comet
7f> yoarB from now, appears. We will
not have another opportunity as good
in that time and by then some of us
will be so blunted by dullness of
hearing, dimness of vision and absence
of teeth that an earthquake would
barely jar us and a mush and milk
diet would appeal to us more than
the refining Influences of a dozen col

The hearing of the injunction pro

??The Apple of His Eye."
Mr. Elmer Baldwin of Barksdale
brought into the Advertiser office the
other day a most peculiar freak of
nature In tho way of an apple. This
apple seemed to he a combination of
half a dozen or more little ones, there
being that many stems to the fruit.
Not being a fruit expert, The Advertis
er "apple editor" couldn't exactly get
at the cause of this freak but simply
guessed Chat a good many apples want
ed to live in this particular spot and
not desiring a split In the party, join
ed hands and went In cahoot.
Off for Big Fish.
Mr. W. Carl Wharton gathered a
large number of his fertilizer cus
tomers this week and carried them
down to Charleston Monday morning
to indulge in a few days of fishing
for big bait. The party left in a pri
vate car attached to the mid-day train
on the C, N. & Iii railroad. About
twenty five were in the party. Beach
ing Charleston the land lubbers will
be taken in charge by the officials of
the Planters Fertilizer company and
caroled across the "bar" or most of
them. The party will be gone about

Lauren* Mill Dividend.
In enumerating the corporations that
paid dividends on the first of the
month, The Advertiser failed to make
mention of the Laurens cotton mill,
which paid out a semi-annual dividend
of 3 per cent. This is gratifying to
the large number of stockholders and
friends of the corporation.
