MEN WHO ARE CITY BUILDERS
Leading Exponents of the Spirit of Progress Among the Business Men of
LAURENS, SOUTH CAROLINA
Paragraphs With Points to 'Ihe,
From ia Reporter's Note Hook, While
in the City.
l'rogre\ss is a law whiIl ltust he
respected and followed. It concerns
not only the Character but the very
life of a town or coliuniity.
Unless there is progress in the
professions, the industires and busi
ness of a town or city it must retro
grade, there is no middle position, for
when growth ceases dccay begins.
Therefore it is necessary either to go
forward or turn to the rear. Lau
reus is lighting steadily for the sIlc
cess w hich is now crowning her of
forts, and the growth of ihe city for
t.ie ist few years has been more
marled than at any period in its pre
viou s history, coutrainly it as shAlowni
no signs of decay. LatIrenls has anid
is looking forward and not backward,
toward the goal of still greater
aehieven'Ints fin the future. Th11 old
days of Laureis havt pass - away,
tile days when sle rovelled in the
indolent Sou therin silnshine and
fought. her glorious hattles ovI again,
a youiger gonerationl has comie into
the arlena and is now ligiting for Sut
premlacy ill the field of t rade and
CollllrCe. h'liie hattle has none of
the horrifying speelaeloes of the 60's
but is now for loesllk., eduneatioll and
employmient for all. 'The ie un ( L.ialu
rens are of a race now who build
c!ties, make dewrt, places bloom:a and
Prow no the mevaning o1 the word de
feat, and they know that tl sua-ess
of every business means a s for
ward to what the people are. l;oidng
to, a larger city. They all vie vwith
on1e another in this and a dronaj Is
trampled under foot in the march of
progress. The writ(r takes prids in
the fact that hie is permitted to call
attention to this page of Cards, anid
make brief mention of whliat lie has
seen here in Lauren:: through t'nc
columns of The Adverti*er, and wouie
call especial attention to the namei
appearing on this page of cards a,
being indicative of son of tie besi
in their several lines of e.ndteavor, for
they all believe that Wiat is worth
doing at all is worth doing well, and
this principle is followed in all of
their daily trinsactions. Another
thing, it is no longer neeesasry to go
elsewlhere to purchase goods, 3 ou ann
