TIlIE LAST CALL.
Laurens County Is away behind in
subscriptions to the last Liberty Loan.
Other counties are also behind, but
there are still other counties which
have subscribed their quotas. -What
'they have done, however, ought not to
affect our attitude toward our own
campaign. We have it duty to perform
and we cannot excuse ourselves from
performing it because some other see
tion has or has not dlone Its dity. Our
regiments in France could not and did
not wait to see if other regjiments hald
"gone over the top" before they obeyed
the ComitaIds of their officers. They
learned their duty and prformed it.
The governmiient exects is to do the
same thing heIre.
I.FFICACY OF PRAYEll.
A good iany piouis souls (u9ring the
-war and until Itow were wontt to pray
fervently for the safety of our soldiers
overseas, for an early victory and a
safe return home. They (id thlen aitd
now continue to give a hearty "ameni'"
to the minister when he refers in feel
ing teris to those still left in France
and prays again for their safe return
home. I'illacious as prayer might be,
we all know that those fellows won't
get home swithout somebody furnishes
the wherewitltal. If we lray for their
return and do not contriiute our part
of the carfare, we are not ontly leaving
the whole iting to the Lord but are uni
loading our responsibility ont Him and
our neiglbor proba bly in the next Pew.
So, tontight or tomorrow ntight prob
ably, w~hen some of you goodl brethren
get dlown ont your knees to lift til
your voice' int prayer' for the safo re
tur'n of the boys homte, just excuse

Editor The Advertiser:
I see In recent articles the Good
Roads Commission has finally adopt
ed the road by Hickory Tavern to
'Princeaon. This will serve a goodly
number of people and should and will
undoubtedly nican bigger things for
the city of Ijaurens. I will venture
the assertion that there are more
hone-owning people connected with
this road than any section of the coun
ty and 1I think my forthcoming state
ments will bear me out, This gets
me to one of my hobbies, that of en
couraging home-owning people for a
better comnmunity and a better county.
1 do not mean that good people do not
owni houses but to own a thing Is to
become interested in it and its sur
roundings aid things that pertain
Thiis road to Princeton ean be with
its intersecting branch roads slinnled
ip as follows: At 11111 place, 3 miles
frotni town intersected by a road from
A. I. fiarksdale place and another
fro1 Madden section; at Siell place
3 1-2 miles out of town, by road to
.1. 1). W. Waits' on to Stell Bridge and
tle Andy Phli iips country, .which has
large connections; at A. Ax. Garling
ton's interseets road to i1. S. Wallace's
and big section around and consid
erabily beyond; at Geo. Dunk Arm
strong's withb road to WXilson commnun
ity and Liv Wolff's; also road here in
tersects from Eden, Dials, Greenpond
and Bulah sections, and beyond the
Very best portions of the county, big
stores, schools and churches; pass on
by Abercroibie's store, one of, if not
the largest country stores in the coun
ty. I will say the largest without
doubt; to the Tavern, here we con
nect with the good section of Friend
ship on one hand, with another road
leading to lHabun and Fairview see
tions connecting in 5 m1.; with the
top soiled roads of Greenville county
to Fointa in I1nn, Sinmpsonville, Gre'e'n
ville, Fork Rhoals, Pelzer, WIlianston,
Piedmiont, Anderson -,and Pickens.
Contimting at Tavern again to Prince

nery and Imiills, through a read good
sction to Princeton. connecting -with
top-soiled roads to Xare Shoals and
Tile clrches and selhools should be
sole ildex to any section, so I will
bigin by naming Trinity-Hlidge school,
non011e dou1btless lar I'e unless perhaps
another on Ile samne road, which I will
later' name; Shiloh preparilg for
larger things; .l'den, a nice school;
Dials, another 'good 0dhool; Gtm'eeni
Pond, still another of goodly propor
tions; HIickory i'avern iay be tile
largest; Friendship, doing well; Mer
