Mr. Cooper's speech Is thus report
ed by the Mail:
"'Robert A.' Cooper, of Laurens,

shils and- endurances, and yet at all
times they aro jovial and spreading
sunshine as they go along. le said
that the t.ra4veling man is the ba
rometer of all things; that the drum
mer Is the first to know that' break
ers are ahead; that hard tines are
coming; that prosperity is coinig.
They gather this information by cir

and that. he valued their friendsliip
highly, and that, lie was always glad
of an opportunity of mingling with
