It appears as if an effort is being

seems that some papers delight in
giving details of such unhappy
incidents. The Advertiser printed
but very little of the nauseating Myr

Intends printing but little as to

The next circus that asks for a li
cense to show in town ought to he
charged a million dollars. Circuses
answer no good purpose, and they
take away a considerable amount' of
money that would otherwise be spent
at home for articles of value.--New
A circus is an innocent form of
amusement, largely an educational in
sltuatlon and entirely harmless. The
laborers and performers wear clothes
madn from cotton and wool raised in
the south, they eat food, both In tran
sit and at home, which comes partly
from the farms of this section and]
whatever else they buy ia a contribu
tion to the sum total of the world's
business, which is necessary for our
own prosperity. Let the circuses
come, just as long as the clowns are
funny and plenty of peanuts and
candy and pink lemonade is on tap.

the same way. but he might have been

GETTING DOWN TO FACTS.
Getting right down to brass tacks,
now, one thing must be realized about
this county fair business. We might
havo a county fair every week in the
year and we might have an equally
large crowd and an equally fine ex
hibit each time and a whole lot of In
formation might be gotten out of It
and. a great many things learned, but
there remains one fact that cannot be
dodged: Unless we act upon what we
learn, there is no use learning. Know
ing-things and talking about things
do not count for much unless some
thing Is done. It is agreed every
where in this county and jc. other
counties and in other states that some
hind.'of stock raising is necessary to
attain to any great amount of success
in farming In the south and that in
tensive farming is equally as neces
sary.; With the high cost of living
and I the reduced amount of labor,
things have changed in the past de
cade and a change is imperative in
the south, If farming is to bring the
returns which the labor Justifies. We
all know this and we all discuss It
and but a very few act upon lt. T'
seems to us, that with the lessons of
the past two years before us, ono year
a big crop and low prices and the
other a short crop and picdlum low
prices, that It would be realized as
a Tact not to. bo disputed that the
southern farmer must raise something
else In quantity besides cotton and
that what cotton he raises must be
raised by progressive methods. As
every farmer in Laurens county Is
(Irmly convinced of this fact, it seems
to us that they would take some ac
tion upon what they know and turn
about and start anew, diversifying the
agricultural products and raising more
hoists, cattle, hogs, sheep, chickens
etc. As a last argument that the
south is the place to raise cattle for
other parts of the world, read the edi
torial In the Scientific American in
another column on this page. The
people of tho country are expecting
us to supply it with food as well as
clothing and we should rise to the oc
casion and help ourselves as well as
them. So let's begin this fall to put
in practice what we know about farm
ing and quit doing nothing but talk.

WHERE THANKS ARE DUE.
Mr. W. D. Byrd was very anxious
yesterday to ask The Advertiser to
thank all those who so liberally con
tributed by their means and by their
hands to the success of the fair. Wo
think it is about time that Mr. Byrd
be thanked. While he has certainly
been thanked Individually and per
sonally by many for his Interest and
untiring efforts in behalf of the fair,
still we know that no official thanks
have been tendered him for unless he
calls a meeting of the directors to
pass em, there Is no place for any
official thanks to come from. As Mr.
Hyrd certainly Is not going to call a
meeting to thank himself, we think
that it would not be out of place for
The Advertiser, on the part of the
people of the county, to thank Mr.
Byrd for his splendid efforts In mak
ing the fair what It was. Mr. Byrd
deserves the thanks of every one who
attended and those who did not. Tho
same thing might be said and is said
of John D. W. Watts. C. A. Power,
W. It. McCuen and numbers of others
who worked so hard to make the
fair a success. These men worked
like Trojans for weeks before the fair
and their efforts were surely not with

Ladies Determined to huve Money with

The Civic League Is In danger of
going into the hands of a receiver, so
it Is said, and a meeting is to be held
Friday afternoon at four o'clock to
devise ways and means of securing
more money to ward of? the impending
danger. The meeting Is to be held In
the Methodist church and every mem
ber or every person who Is desirous
of becoming a member of this useful
society is urged to be present. Some
money has to he gotten and the ladies
have doclded to have it. A kind of
council of war will be held and every
one who is willing to assist In carry
ing the league's Ideas into effective
usefulness is Invited and urged to at
tend. This Is going to be no cut and
dried affair, but real work Is going to
be done In order to put the league's
finances In proper shape. For fear,
however, that the members might get
the Impression thai a collection Is
going to be taken up, It might be said
that this is not going to be done. but.
Instead of contributing themselves,
the ladles are planning some way to
make somebody else put up the money.
So. all those who enjoy teasing the
coin away from tho "old man" are
expected to be on hand and help out
in the cause.
