The Season's Best Offering at the
MUTT and JEFF
CARLOAD OF SCENERY
Mr. Lavender is offering to the Laurens public
the stupendous Broadway production, Mutt and
Jeff. He offers this not because he expects to
make money out of it, but because he feels it his
duty to the public of Laurens to supply a show of
this kind at odd intervals. The reputation of the
show is too well known to "puff up" here.

How Your Money Will Be Spent
Woodrow Wilson, <>ur standard bearer, has never bad
the time or disposition to talk about himself.
He has never used spectacular methods to place himself
in the spotlight.
His greatest work has been done without ostentation, in
the most expeditious, dignified manner.
The great mass of voters do not know what a really
great man Wilson is. They do not know all he has dune.
They do not understand all the features of his platform.
We must tell them.
To educate this great nation of voters, especially the
clear thinking Independent Democrats, Republicans and
Progressives who choose iheii leader on bis merits, means
the expenditure of a vast amount of money.
We propose to use your dollars in just this way ?
judiciously, and without a penny frittered away for an un
We know you have confidence we will do this thing?and
Why the Dollar Counts
In this campaign the issues lie between the forces of
Representative Government and Popular Government.
In Representative Government only a part o( the people
have influence ? those with no political faith, who spend
fortunes in any direction where their own ends arc for
thcrcd for money.
In Popular Government all the people have influence,
because their executives and legislators do not d4re to
thwart the expressed will of the people.
Representative Government, as ever, this year is being
supported by the money of the Interests. Iiis being spent
lavishly to give the voters a wrong improoston of Wilson.
Popular Government, this year, to win, most depend on the
truth being told about Wilson. We must publish his record
and platform broadcast so that no one can controvert it.
