iie lilrary, where every citizen, no
mailt t how himble, cat have access
to it, cannot he over-estimated and the
cOtineilmen should be encoutraged to
provide such an asset. It would re

the tax levy, but. as the benefits would
be so far-reaching we do not believe
that any considerable proportion of
the people would object to it. It

VAM NUTS ADVERTISING [AN
STARTS BIG CAMPAIGN
New Breakfast, Food Made in Green
ville-Hig 'Denatd Already ('reate'd
for the floods-Opens Market for
Porto lHico Ynm Potatoes.
11. M.. Allen, representing the WIl
Ilain Co., nanufacturers of the new
breakfast food--Yam Nuts--arrived in
Laurens Monday morning to begin an
active advertising campaign in behalfi
of the new product. Practically every
grocer has placed in a stock of Yamn
Nuts and during the week every per
(n in the city will give a "try out" at
the new food.
"Ihc food htas long since passed
iiw ; :dmcistt stage,' said Mr. Al
len today. "Yam Nuts are an assured
success and taking everywhere it has
yet been introduced." In many cities
reorders have been rapidly coming
in, so popular has the food taken
with the people.
The manufacturing plant Is located l
in Greenville where day and night
shifts are making every effort to
keep up with the demand.
Mr. Allen announced today that the
company would consume 250,000)
bushels South Carolina grown yams
annually for the manufacture of Yam
Nuts. This Will be an interesting an
nouncement to the farmers of the
county who are planning to diversify
in the face of the coming of the boll
In an effort to stimulate an interest
in growing yams to meet the new and
increased demand the Willianms com
pany will purchase and distribute to
the farmers of this section 25,000,000
potato slips. These will be distribut
ed with the understanding that the
company is to have the privilege of
purchasing the supply of potatoes pro
duced from these slips. They will be
of the Porto Rico variety. Also with
the slips will go full instructions as
to how to cutIvate this variety of
potato. Information as to these will
be published later.
Yam Nuts is a crisp, toothsome
breakfast food, prepared by a patent
edl process from selected sweet pota
toes. Like cereals it. Is best served
With sugar and cream. "Dne fair
chance at the new food and you will
get. the habit," says Mr. Allen.
