WILSON CAMPAIGN FUND.
Tho Advertiser will Accept Subscript
thms to Campaign Fund for Wilson
As everyone knows, It takes money
and a lot of it to conduct a presiden
tial campaign, it is equally as well
known that Governor Wood row Wil
son is not able to supply the smallest
part of a fund necessary to round out
n campaign dtiring <he coming elec
tion. Although the democratic party
seems now on a suro way to victory
this fall. It is not an assured fact by
any means. A systematic and exten
sive campaign will be carried on in
doubtful states in order to hold the
ground already gained and to gain
more. Speakers will have to be pro
vlded for and literature printed. With
victory almost in sight, an immense
amount of money is needed to make
sure of the campaign.
The Columbia State, and The Char
leston News and Courier have started
a subscription list In this state to aid
In the great campaign. The county
papers have taken up the idea and
pcoplo all over South Carolina are
contributing In varying amounts to
the fund. The Advertiser stands ready
to accept subscriptions from this coun
ty. As laurens always comes forward
very generously on occasions of this
kind, it is hoped that large numbers
will take advantage of the opportunity
to aid tho democratic party in those
Btates where help is needed. As The
State is nearer tho Laurens territory,
tho subscriptions from this paper will
be forwarded to that, paper with the
request that the money be sent to the
proper source. Do not put the mat
ter off, but send in your subscription
right away before dismissing the Idea
from your mind.
All Records Broken.
The Advertiser has been making a
few notices about champion vegetable
raisers for the past several weeks, but
a record breaker In the cabbage line
was sent In by Walter Harris Satur
day afternoon. This one out-distanced
ali other cabbage heads brought in
heretofore, for it tipped the scales at
21 pounds. This cabbage was so large
that if Hen. Bourne's parcels post mea
now in effect, it would cost
42 cents to get it to market by mail.
