-And then once in every person's
lIfe-time there comes that suprOme
moment of Joy! and whatever you may
call it and that is just nyhat the jazz
hounds and singing hounds of Clem
son College ar in business for. And
on the night of April 16, the glee club
from Tigertown Is to visit Laurens and
,present to the people the best that
there is in th4 world of ;minstrels, at
the school atd'itoriumn. The cadets
have sixteen of the singingest, best
looking men i4 the state and they al
so Intend to present the Tigertown
Jazz Six 'which is claimed to be the
best orchestra north of the South
.Pole. Then there is the six end men
who are going to the trouble of black

please the audience-maybe they will
do more. The quartet is claimed to be
the best one in the -South in every
thing except looks. Then there is
"Molly" Davis who is claimed to be
the best comedian on the stage. A
prize consisting of one sitting her is
to be given to the -bird who sees Davis

face's nervous system.
And then Laurens has alvays been

MAY BUIL) HOMES
FOR 35,000 TEN A NTS
New York Considers Construction of
Houses on 'Muticipally Owned Lots.
iNew iYork, April 10.-,Homes flor
35,000 of New York's iharried ten
ants to be sold without "down pay
ments" on terms far below current
rentals, will rise on munlcipally owned
vacant lots if a proposal now before
the 'board of estimate is adopted 'by the
Edward P. Doyle, chairman of the
budget committee of the real estate
board of New York, 'who proposed the
plan, 'was requested by the board cf
estimate yesterday to take it ilp with
the mayor's committee on rent profit
eering. It was estimated that if the
.plan found favor there it would re
ceive city backing.
Mr. Doyle's plans call for forma
tion of a $30,000,000 building loan as
sociation, with which the city would
cooperate by furnishing vacant lots
on fifty year leases. The city owns
thousands of such lots, acquired in
delinquent tax proceedings.
The association would issue $'5,
000,000 in .prepaid stock which, Mr.
Doyle said, real estate investors
would readIily buy, and $23,000,000 in
intsallment stock which 'would lbe sold
to prospectfive home11 purchasers in
blocks of 25 shares at $100 a share.
The stock wvould be plaid for at the
rate of 50 cents per share pe~r month.
or $12.50 for the 25 shares.
'The proceedls 'would be used to erect
concrete houses to be sold1 for $2,300
each. Thle pourchaser would pay six
per cent on the purchase price in
monthly instalients of $12.50 which
with his payments on his stock would
'bring his monthly outgo up to $25.00.
Tro this wouild be added a four' per cent
payment to the city as rental for the
lot, and an assessment for taxes. 'In
12 year's, the (1ues paid on t'he stock
would amount to $1,800, and which
wvith eni'ners accredited to the stock,
would pay for the house. T1he pur
chaser could thenm at his leisure pur'
chase the lot from the city.
Take notice that on tihe 28th day of
AprIl, 1920, I will render a final ac
count of my acts and doings as Admin
Istratrix of tihe estate of WValter Hun
ter deceased, in the office of the Judge
