Kt WONDERS WHff If IS-THENSUPPENtT ftfti OUT
* LISBON LOCALS.
Ll3bon, March 3.?Everything la
very quiet at this place, yet the rural
police don't come arouud very often.
But they never know when to expect
them. For that reason it has the de
atred effect for good order.
Thjs place needs a good piany
things that wo are not ablo to reach,
but we could afford a telephone line
it we neighbors would combino and
make one, then we would feel like
wo were near the city, one of the best
towns in the up country and the best
people. We go to other places and
Can see more tigers heforo the sun
goes down, hear more rowdyism than
you would see and hear at Laurens
in six months. The reason of that is,
our people are on good behavior most
?11 the time, but in case one don't do
the proper thing the olbcers at Lau
rens are very apt to look after him.
We went to a town not far from Lau
rens and saw more men under the in
fluence of whiskey than you would
see at. Laurens In 12 months. The
dispensary was in evidence at that
iplace. We could not help but feel
sorry for some of these poor fellows
who did not have a decent suit of
Clothing, much less the necessities of
life. Now isn't it time for Congress
?o act, change the constitution that no
(whiskey could be shipped into a dry
'County or state? We would then have
a people who would be self-support
ing and one of the best countries in
We see from ihe newspapers that
wo will not ha e to go out in the
highways and hedges to find men to
fill the governor's chair. There are
some good men that we know per
sonally already announced. Our first
choice is the Hon. it. A. Cooper, a gen
tloruan, of the highest type and that
means very, very much in South Caro
The farm work io very quiet these
days, nothing doing in tho way of
plowing. The farmers are not haul
ing fertilizer, for some don't say much
about fertilizer, and when they do
they say "I am not hunting n olg fer
tilizer bill this time.'' Our land must
do something. The fertilizer people
are getting very near all that is made,
and it Is time that we wero looking
after our interest more, prepare our
land, and rotate, make more of the j
necessities at home.
Our teacher, Miss Alma Garrctt at
tended the teacher's meeting at Lau
rens and reports that she had a de
lightful time. She spoke in tho high
est terms of Prof. Tate's talk to the
Mr. Anderson has finished painting
tho Lisbon school house and it acids
much to the already beautiful place.
Now wo are going to vote a two mill
tax to run our school longer, the 14th
of this month. With the McCravy
bill in force wo will have more edu
cation and better education, but we
think that the bill should have more
force. Some people think that the
negro would get more education, but
tho negro always gets more than his
part, if there is anything to be had.
