For Another Euripides.
If some poet or dramatist as great
as Euripides were to rise from the
-.wreck of this war and write of what
he had seen ho could not better the
denunciation in "The Trojan Women"
which runs, in part, "H-ow are ye
blind, ye treaders down of cities,...
yourselves so soon to die." Those
lines were spoken when this play was
presented In the rrew stadium of the
City college. They brought hems to
all who heard them the sickeni ng real
ization that Europe has sloughed off
its veneer of civilizatIon and Is back
where it was six centuries before the
birth of Christ, when ancient Greece,
too, believed that she had emerged
from barbarism and dId not see thte
ruin then impending. In France, in
Belgium, In ttorthern Italy and on the
windy plains of anclent Trey itself the
shade of Eutrlpides might again de

COUNTRY OF DISTRESS

That Liberty May Result From
the European War.
The lesser nations have come into
promilnence during the war because of
the efforts of patriotic committees to
revive ancient governments. The Bal
kan states and Poland and Lithuania
are examples. Of late there have been
numerous reports of distress in Arne
nia, due to the conflict of Russian and
Turkish arms. Months ago voices
were raised in England on its behalf
when it was seen that Russia, Eng
land and France were to be banded to
gether against the Germanic-Turkish
powers. Now comes the demand that
the aspirations of Armenia be recog*
niized, that tle Christian people . ho

Rip Van Winkle Has Awakened
STO THE FARAMERS OF LAURENS COUNTY:
Atrtwo years of constant thought and careful investigation, we have come to the con
+clusion that the merchant who best protects his trade is almost certain to suceeed. And4
in this connection, we believe what we are going to say is in perfect accord with the ideas
and opinions of the thinking and most progressive citizens of Laurens county,. namely
Thlat the low price of cotton the past year has been a blessing in disguise to our people
and taught them to raise every necessary product possible on their own farms, besides in-4
Sculcating a commendable spirit of economy. Bnt there is yet ops'e kind of economy and
()progress that our farmers have yet to learn, and that is the raising of colts--au economy
+~ that is just as important on the farmu as the raising of cattle, h'ogs, corn, oats, or any other
products that we need.
__ Now, having had a life-long experience as a stock raiser, (being raised on the farm) and
Shaving been identified with the best interests of Laurens county for more than half a life
Stime, I feel warranted in claiming that I can be a public benefactor by offering to our trade
+and the public generally a car load of the very best brood mares, and to this end we have4
made up our minds to "'take a shot"' at it-to try the experiment in the hope of inducing
our pro)gressive farmers to raise their owvn stock, or most of it at least.
S So, on the FIRST MOND)AY in December, 191 5, we will have at our stable a full car4
Sload of good brood mares ranging in ages from four to seven years, weighing fromi onie +
thousand to twelve hundli~red and fifty p~oundis, and as many of them in fold as we cani get.
S Any assertioni without reason is no good. A\nd we miainutaini that the farmer, as a :utle,(.
feeds his mu tles eight months ini the year to work, and the other four months to look at
Swhereas, if lie has sonme good brood1 mares they will do t he same work as the imutles for +
eight months and breed the other four-and thus work for the farmer the entire twelv'e
mnonthi bringing him good profits.'+
Rdwill leave Monticello, Ark., this wveek for Memphis, Tenni., and will go through the+
Scountry till he finds wvhat lie wants and will buy from the farmer direct, and we will sell
them dlirect to Laurens county farmnere. While it wvill take loniger to get what we want, we
Sknow that by buying direct from the Tennessee fprmers, we can save money for our farm
+ers here at home in the sale of this class of stock.
~'We intend to sell these brood mnares for cash, or such notes as the Banks will handle
Swithout our endorsement, and we are positive that we can save you from twenty to thirty
per cent. All we ask is for you to give us a trial. Your money is yourt ?riend. We will
+ also exchange these brood mares for good mes.
