The Advertiser suggested a move
ment several weeks ago for the clos
ing of tho stores about seven o'clock
during tho winter time. One of the
loading merchants of the city has
heartily endorsed the Idea and has
urged further agitation of the move
ment. What about it gentlemen?

Of the fourteen prisoners sentenced
by the court last week, the county
supervisor sent every one to the coun
ty chain gang. If all the counties
would follow tho same practice, the
problem of providing employment for
Convicts at tho state penitentiary
would bo solved and the roads of the
state would bo greatly bcncfltted ?!

Congratulation to tho patrons of
the Cray Court-Owlngs high school
for tho step forward in voting bonds
for a new school building. One is sad
ly needed. With the splendid record
of tho past few years and with future
growth only uncertain because of in
adequate facilities, a defeat of the
movement would have been a reflec
tion upon the comtiuunlty and a blow
to its progress, a serious set-back to'
the educational progress of the whole
county. With Intorost so awakened in
the county that four different locali
ties have voted bonds for new build
ings, truly the County can be proud
Of the educational advancement. With
this new building provided for, the
Oray Court-Owlngs high school should
continue to maintain the enviable
record which it lias made in the past.

the handsome suit of clothes he was
wearing and tho gentleman replied,
'This cloth Is known as calvort cloth,
was manufactured by Che Drayton
mills at Spartanburg and the suit
made tip hero In Greenville.' Point
ing to his shirt he said. 'This shirt
was made of Greenville cotton by the
Dunean mills of this city and bleach
ed at the Union bleachery of

The people are awakening to the
economy of building good roads. For
many years every effort has been bent
toward enlightenment on tho good
roads question. Wo have been doing
a great deal of talking but not much
working. All of this has been neces
sary to convince the majority of peo
ple that an expenditure for good roads
Is a real economy. The time has about
come when the people are ready to
support a real good roads mover ent.
Wo hope this Is true, and believe
it is. The Herald and Nows for many
years has been a persistent and consis
tent advocate of the building of good
roads. The people will come to real
ize some day that a tax for road build
ing is different from any other tax. It
is an Investment that will ;>: y large r
dividends to all tho people than any
other Investment they could possibly
make. We have never been able to
understand why every one did not take
more interest in road building, or how
any one could oppose a reasonable tax
for road building.?The Herald and
Girls, you should seo the Dandy
Doll Carriages that we are showing.
You can got a nice one for 7"> cents.

bats on the local diamond Saturday. It
was a slow game on the part of the
visitors, and resulted in a score of I'.O
to .") in favor of the local team. The
game was a very close and interesting
one up until the 5th inning. At that
time the scores stood :'. to 1 with the
ledger balanced toward the visitors,
c. x. Adalr and P. It, Weathers did
the pitching for Hillside. Three runs
were secured off Adalr and two off
Weathers. Batteries: for Hillside,
Adalr, Weathers and Chapman; for
Pork Shoals, Itlddle, Majors, Sullivan,
Qreen and Williams.
Cotton is being picked out very fast
in this community. There will not be
a large crop, as was thought at first.
There are hundreds of bushels of
potatoes for sale in Hillside. The
market at Fountain Inn offers only
forty cents per bushel. How's that?
The government report lias it that
there is a great shortage In the 1913
crop of potatoes. If that Is true, why
is there no market for them In Foun
tain Inn, Peizer or Willlamston? Are
not there any merchants la those
towns enterprising enough to engage
sales elsewhere, and thus make a
handsome profit? Think it over.

at her home with heart disease. Wo
