LAUBENS, s. C? nov. 27, 1912.
The AdTertiser will be glad to
receive the local news of all the
communities In the county. Cor
respondents arc requested to
sign their mimes to the contri
butions.. Letters should not be
mailed later than Monday morn
We are glad to see that the Green
ville people have at ;ast discovered
that at Chicora "certain improvements
In the present plant are absolutely
necessary; that conditions, such as
clans room accommodation, etc.. at
the college now are almost unbear
able." From the glowing description
given to the Presbyteries by the
Greenville silver tongucd orators, one
would have believed that the present
building is some years ahead of the
? ? ?
What is the spirit that deadens more
towns than any other? It Is the spirit
of selfishness displayed by a whole
raft of close listed citizens who are
afraid that every man who is trying to
foster some enterprise is after some
kind of soft snap for himself. That
Bpirit thrives right here in Laurens
and It Is hurting the town. True, it is
present everywhere to a degree, but it
is evident here and it ought to be
done away with.
What all of us are after Is some ben
efit, not neceasari!} financial, from ev
ery enterprise to be b. ought 'nto the
town, else there would be UO argu
ment for our assist ins In getting it
here. Surely no one would think that
anybody, we don't care who, is going
to subscribe to any kind of fund for
any enterprise, supposedly for the ben
efit of the town, unless he thought that
he would benefit either directly or in
directly in some manner or other. Any
body who would subscribe to any such
fund or stock purely for the benefit
of somebody else, expecting in return
no benefit of any kind for himself, is
visionary and neither practical nor
ecnsible. unless he has more money
than be knows what to do with.
A man, who by his Industry. Intellect
or force of character. Is able to secure
a following large enough and substan
tial enough to successfully launch or
conduct any enterprise, beneficial to
the citizens of a town. Individually or
coJeletlvely, should be unselfishly sup
ported or be told in n'aln language
Under ordinary circumstances, we
are all looking out for No. 1. But. If it
Is to our advantage to aid No. 2 In or
der to benefit No. 1, It seems to us that
it would be the right thing to help
No. 2. We are talking business, not
If our citizens are going to do any
thing for the growth of the town,
they had better cut this narrow-mind
edness out and pull together.
There are two avenues open to ev
ery town: one to growth and devel
opment and the other to a slow na
tural death. We prefer the former and
we believe all of our citizens do, but
we have got to work together to reach
it; unless we do we will go into the
other in spite of ourselves.

now, why not:
The following "nomination" of a
L*\Ufeiis boy for an office of great re
Bponsihiliiy and high rnnk would be
und certainly is heartily seconded by
every citizen of Laurens, the real home
of tills distinguished naval officer:
"'Senate Document No. c> 16,' a pam
phlet of 128 pages, conveys to us a
belated understanding that the cruise
around I., i world of the groat Atlan
tic fleet was not a wholly spectacular
affair bat furnished the navy valuable
experience In the management of such
That document Is the "report of
Pay Inspector Samuel McOcwan, U.
8. N.. fleet paymaster," and was call
ed for by the senate naval commit
tee because of the records of reforms
secured and Wie valuable suggestions
made. The least of the pay Inspect
or's labors appears to have been con
nected with the duties indicated by
the name of his post. They begann
with getting the ehlp's conteens con
ducted honestly; as a result of hl?
investigation and reports the system
wan radically changed for the whole
navv. Included In the work was the
provisioning an army in foreign coun
J.rles. and distributiv- aid to destitute
mong the Italian earthquake victims.
"Heading that report again lm
tes us that Samuel McGowan, t'.
s. N.. is a distinct credit to his State,
and we know ti.at he stands very nigh
in the esteem of that large contingent
of the navy with whom h>?.h eftlcienny
devotion to duty and to the navy are
esteemed, And that carries U8 farther
to consideration of the fact that Mr.
McGowah I ns long achieved all the
honors. Bave one. in his department of
the navy ami that he Is deserving and
eminently quailed for that honor?
paymaster general of the navy. Years
ago Mr. McGowan made a fine record
as assistant in the paymaster gener
al's office. Since tnen he has done a
great teal of hard and efficient ser
vice and the honor of being made
paymaster general Is deserved and
would be appropriately bestowed."
"Sam" MrGow.ui>as he Is affection
ately called by all of those who know
and appreciate his fine qualities here,
is eminently fitted to discharge the
duties of this office and to reflect cred
it upon the government he would have
to represent. His appointment would
certainly meet the approval of those
officers of the navy who have come in
contact with him and know his sterl
ing qualities and of those people who
know him so well here.
