by those who stald at home, and that
the fight they made In dlefense of the
prinltclples of democr'acy ar'e endorsed
as a comlmon fight against the evils of
autoeracy and ilItaism.
The Adver'tlser' pointed out several
weeks ago that. Laur'ens county has a
rIght to be proiud of the rCcord( of her
somt In thIs war. As Colonel Dailing
ton says, Laurens county has con
tibuhted lar'gely fronm Its quota of those
who offered thir~l all foi' theltr country.
Laurens troops participated as a body
in at least two of the most vital con
flicts of the 1918 campaign, while indi
viduals in various units rendered hero
Ic service almost on every field iwhere
American. troops participated. tIt i1
right and fitting. that we should hono
their memory and honor it in a manner
worthy of the conspicuous gallantry
which they displayed.
As Col. iDarlington suggests, it
tvould be well to go about the cam
paign to erect this mitonument in a bis
intess-like manner. For this reasont,
