LAURENS, S. C? MARCH 26, 191?.

communities In the county. Cor
respondents are requested to
sign their names to the contri
butions.. Letters should not be

The Spartanburg .Journal says that
Sam J Nieb?lls Is "one of the bi.st
known young men In the county". In.
deed, we do not know of any other
yo'?ng fellow in that town who has
been more widely advertised, his youth
having proven but a minor obstacle
in winning a way to fame.
The executive committee of tho S.
C. Press Association has decided that
the annual trip after the association
meeting this year will he made to New
York city. Tho committee has mado
arrangements to provide transporta
tion by the Clyde Lino al a verj cheap
rate. The selection of New York and
the water route will meet with the
hearty approval of the association and
doubtless a large number of the "boys"
will take the trip.

GOV. Please has accepted another
invitation to attend a COnferonco of
governors to he held, this time, at
Colorado Springs. The secretary Of
the conference In extending the Invi
tation, stated that it was desirod to
make? the conference a record-break-!
ing one. We have serious doubts
whether or not the hopes of the con
ference secretary will he realized, for,
with the promise shown by our gov
ernor at the last conference still fresh
in our memory, we hardly think that
the record made at that meeting can
be broken. At least, let us hope not.

CAMPAIGN TO CLOSE.
Dr. Routh will close the hook-worm
campaign in this county Saturday. He
has been in the county over two
months and during that time he has
treated hundreds of cases of the dis
ease. He examined thousands of oth
ors and found that they were not In
flicted, but enough cases were dis
covered and treated to amply repay
the county and the state for the money
that they expended and Dr. Routh for
his labors while here. Hut there are
a few days left of the campaign and
these fow days should he taken advan
tage of by the people of the county.
Parents should take this last oppor
tunity of having their children receive
this free examination and treatment.
Dr. Routh will spend the last day of
the campaign in the court house, when
be will bo glad to examine everyone
who applies and give free treatment
to those affected. We urge all parents
to have their children examined before
the campaign closes.

Wo hoard it from several sources
yesterday that The Advertiser was to
appear this morning with a broadside
against the new city council because
of the elections Thursday evening.
We do not know how this Information
got out or who was tho author of It.
It is sufficient for us to say that wo
did not and do not intend now to dis
cuss tho elections, except to advlso
I the new councllmen to get a book of
j parliamentary rules and have It adopt
I ed to go by In their deliberations. It
might not l>e out of place also to sug
H gest that they read the charter and
any other acts under which the city
I exists. While tho results of the elec
I tlons thoniBolves did not go, In all
I cases, nccording to our liking, still
. we had no right to* expect anything
I else as our candidate In the mayoralty
I race was treated rather roughly In
k tho primary election. So, wo have no
I right bo complain. If there are oth
t. ere who voted differently and feel that
the wishes of the citizens have not
been carried out by the new council,
I they will have to console themselves
f&tn some othor way.

Your Cotton Will Come Up Standing Like This
When Planted With the
LEDBETTER "One Seed"
COME In and see the only real cotton planter. The planter with a
positive, precise force feed, that will take Hnty cotton seed, just as
it comes from the gin, and plant the seed In a straight, narrow line
one at a time, equal distances apart?as regular as buttons on a card.
Other planters can be set to plant "thick or thin," but this planter
will plant thick?a bushel or more of seed to tho acre?without bunching,
or thin-down to a bushel to six acres?without skips.
Each plant stands alone with its own few Inches of growing room?cuts
the work of chopping down to one-half, and you can take your own time
about chopping?plants keep on growing and make stocky, vigorous bushes.
When you plant your cotton with a Ledbettcr "One-Seed" Corn and
Cotton Planter?one seed at a time, evenly spaced?you can plant the best
seed that money can buy at no more cost than ordinary seed, because none
are wasted in useless bunching. And you get 5 bales of cotton on the same
land that grew only 4 before, because there are no skips iu the row.
When the Ledbetter "One Seed" Corn and Cotton Planter is set for
planting corn it is strictly a corn planter, without an equal forthat purpose
?dropping without fail a single grain at any distance desired from 6 to
48 inches. And the same is equally
true when set to plant other seeds,
such as peas, bean3, canteloupesj
watermelon, sorghum, millet, etc.
With peanut attachment it plants peanuts, large
or small, shelled or In the shell, with equal success.
A double guarantee is behind every planter, that of
the manufacturers, The Southern Plow Company,
Dallas, Texas, and ourselves.
COME IN TODAY~We want you to see this planter
whether you intend buying a planter now or not.
