tanburg waa Blirprlsed when Leo
Bradley, a deaf and dumb hoy accept

eyes at the enterprise of this youth
who sold more papers each afternoon
than most of tho young fellows with ft
good pair of healthy lungs. Bradley
sells more papers than any other hoy
on the streets.
Hut people will be more surprised
to learn that ha Is now endeavoring
to become a telegraph operator and
by Operating tho keys can commun
icate with persons in distant cities,
by the sound of the Instrument, ai
though he Is totally deaf and dumb.
He Is now preparing for this work
and has already shown signs of his
ability to learn to operate the in

the Spartanburg school of Telegra

to send a message under the Morse
code, by using the familiar dots nnd

though he is deaf. An apparatus will
be made for the use of this boy with

The oducation of the deaf, dumb

In recent years. The state of South

Springs, whose sole duty is to teach
young Dewey Can troll, who after
several years, has regained his fa
culties and who Is now one of the
brightest pupils in the entlrv school.

$20,001) not Considered Enough Monej
to Build Count) Ituildint; in New
8t. Matthews, Nov. 24.?Among the
items of interest growing out of the
term of sessions court just concluded
yesterday, was the recommendations
of the grand jury with regard to the
building of a court house and jail. The
grnnd jury wishes the delegation in
the general assembly to resubmlt to
the electorate of the county the issue
as to whether the county will suplo
mcnt the gift of the town by giving
$20,000 additional. It will be remem
bered that a great deal has been said
and written about this matter since
the formation of the county In 1903.
"While the matter of the new county
waa being agitated, the town of St.
Matthews promised that they would
contribute' S20.000 for the erection of
the public buildings. Acting on this
promise the election was easily car
ried. After the new county won and
things had settled down, a number of
the leading citizens thought that the
amount given by the town was Insuf
ficient to build an adequate building.
In response to this general suggestion,
a bill was passed allowing the people
to say as to the additional Issue. The
question was submitted at the recent
general election and lost by the nar
row margin of 13 votes.
The special commission created for
this purpose, new Is put to the task
of the duty imposed \ipon them, and
the amount in hand is only $20,000.
It has been pretty definitely ascer
tained that the commission will pro
ceed with all advisable dispatch to en
ter upon the erection of the buildings.
They are generally known to advocate
personally a much more liberal
amount, but they declare that the
voice of the people has been heard
and their mandate is clear, and they
announce their intention to proceed
without further waiting. The county
is in dire need of the buildings and
the best that money can furnish will
It should not be left unsaid on be
half of the town of &t. Matthews that
Bho fully redeemed her pledge. The
$20,000 offered has been in the banks
here ready for use, for some time. In
addition to this fund, real property,
sites for the buildings in a well suited
part of the town, of the value of about
$5,000 was given to the county by P.
J. Bnyck and Worrls Parecky. This
gives St Matthews a credit of $25,
?00 Instead of $20.000. It is further
- deserving of notice that the creation
of the county which cost nearly 8,
000 brought with It not a cent of coat
in the way of taxation, this expense
having been paid by individuals.

A JUST PRIDE.
The communication below was re
ceived from Mr. Clarence Cuningham
shortly after the election of Woodrow
WIIBOS and was in some way misplac
ed. Mr. Cuningham doubtless feels
especial pride In tho election of
.Voodrow Wilson, since the two were
at 'he University of Virginia :ogether.
Editor The Laurens Advertiser:
I think the friends, in Laurens
county, of the democratic party and
of Woodrow Wilson as its leader, have
a right to feel a Just pride and satis
faction Is the creditable way our
county stood up to the Woodrow Wil
son campaign fund. While, no doubt,
every true Wilson democrat in the
county regrets that South Carolina
did not make up her quota of fifteen
thousands dollars and that Laurens
county was not able to complete the
quota expected of the state, yet her
citizens can. as I have .aid. feel a
Just pride in her stand in the upper
half of the column of counties. Sur
rounded and contiguous to such ban
ner counties of the Piedmont section
as Oreenvllle, Spnrtanhurg, Union,
Newberry, Greenwood, and Abbeville,
she yet stood ahead of Spartanburg.
