'Die Advertiser's Idea of an Ideal
?county fair is one where no prizes are
expected, but where those who come
realize the benefits to them and to
their neighbors and Join together for
mutual benefit, mutual pleasure and
beneficial rivalry. The Laurens coun
ty Fair comes nearer to our ideal than
any we know of, because it gives no
prizes on its own account and charges
no admission at the gate. Everybody
and anybody are welcome to come and
show their products and anybody who
Is able to get to town can see the ex
hibits and he profited thereby.
? ? ?
"Messrs. W. I). Hyrd, C. A. Power and
John D. W. Watts have worked cease
lessly on the county fair. ? Each and
every one of them have given days
of hard labor to it. Would that every
xnan in the county would Bhow his ap
preciation of their efforts and the |
generosity of the contributing mer
chants, by "being on hand next Friday
and having something with them to
exhibit. Show the spirit of progress,
eo-opcration and desire to help and
be helped by coining next Friday with
Rome kind of an exhibit, an exhibit of
everything which you have worthy
upon your place!
? ? ?
Thnt the governor of South Carolina
should make the best appointments
that he can is taken for granted, but
vre. feel it would not be out of place
to commend Gov. Please on two ap
pointments that he has made. They
arc tho appointments of Messrs. 1). T.
Kinard and Luoco Gunter as members
of the state board of education. The
fftnithern School News says that "Both
tnen are admirably equipped both by
experience and by natural endowments
for rendering great service to South
Carolina." It Is gratifying to know
that the governor has gone outside of
bis political entourage to find men for
these important place...
? * ?
If you have something worthy of ex
Siibitlou, do not leave It at home be
cause no premium is offered for it.
Remember that the county fair is not
beld to provide a little extra cash for
those who participate. It Is intended
sm an educational institution, in which
those people of the county who have
wade progress can aid and encourage
those who have not and where those
who are lacking in a proper realiza
tion of the needs of progressive
methods In agriculture 'may become
enthused and become better and hap
pier farmers. Remember this and If
j/rn^^YjO something that you think It

CLINTON COUNTY I
The public, outside of Clinton, has
not been made aware of any well
founded reasons to justify a desire
on the part of Clinton to become a
county-seat. Without having heard
any of the reasons put forth by the
citizens of that town (and it appears
that they are tho principal Instiga
tors) why a county-seat should be
made nt Clinton, we would surmise
that tho principal motive behind the
movement, a very commendable mo
tive however, Is to advance the growth
and prosperity of Clinton. As we say,
we haven't heard much discussion
about the matter, pro or con, but we
imagine that when tho voters of the
districts in quesrlon are put face to
face with the question of additional
taxes with few advantages to offset
the burden, we hardly think that
, they will consent to vote for the new
county. However, we like to see
such evidences of vigorous progrca
slvenoss in Clinton, though we be
lieve that this energy could bo
spent better in other directions.

LETS DOUBLE UP.
The Advertiser has noted one thing
about subscription lists in this coun
ty. Whenever a call is made for mon
ey with which to help out in some
Charitable cause, such as the starving
Chinese or the storm sufferers of
Louisiana, the people of the country
districts have been particularly lib
eral. Laurcns county is always in the
forefront nt these times nnd general
ly the hulk of the money Is given by
the people of the country. At this
time, however, when the democratic
party is sorely afflicted with lack of
funds to fight the moneyed interests
the people of the country districts of
the county have not responded as have
the town people. Laurons county is
credited with nearly fifty dollars in
The State, most of which was con
tributed by citizens of Laurons. The
Advertiser would like to sec this sum
largely increased and we believe that
the fanners of the county are going to
join with the merchants of the town
to see to It thnt the fund is increased.
We are therefore going to ask that the
people of the country and the people
of the towns make a united effort this
week to pile up Laurons county's
contribution to a sum which we would
be proud of. Send the money to this
office or to The State and It will he
gladly received. Do not let this be
put off longer, but send in the sub
scription now. Any sum will bo ac
ceptable. South Carolina has been
apportioned $20,000 as her part of the
campaign fund. She has not raised
$10 000. The amount must be over
doubled. Laurcns county has not
raised $150, so for her to get into its
proper place it must raise over $Lr?0.
Will It be done? Everybody try a
concerted effort and let's do it! Pull!

as it was last year and contains many
specimens of strange animal life new
to American zoos. Audiences will be
entertained by 375 of the greatest of
Europe's circus artists. Chief among
the stars who are exploiting novelties
and sensational acts are: the Ty-Hell

winter; Carlos Caosaro, ki ?vn as "the
man with the iron head the great
Rooney family of equestrians, the Cas

Florence families of acrobats; Jbsenh
La Fleur, who does a backward dive
from the dome of the tent; the Schu
man performing horses, three herds of |
trained elephants that are new to this
country, and Capt. Hilling's two troups
of trained seals and sea-lions. There
are many more big acts. Novelty and
freshness are the keynote of the per
formance and there are fifty clowns to

There Is also a ballet of 300 dancing
girls, a chorus of 100 voices and an or
chestra of 100 soloists. This Is the
greatest dramatic and spectacular pro
duction ever presented in America, en
acted on a specially built stage bigger
than a hundred ordinary theatres. Itj
is made portable so that It can he

This great entertainment Is given a^
an introductory to the regular circus
performance and entails no extra
charge of admission.
"Joan of Arc" tells u masterful
story from French history in a thril
ling and dramatic way and with the
wonderful illusion of tons of special
scenery and stage devices. In the]
great battle scene the audience is held]
spellbound by the realism of the scene,
while the enactment of the coronation
of Charles VII is beyond question the |
most sumptuous and Inspiring stage
picture ever seen. U-2t
