A R1NAI4 TRJUNK lINE
Much interest has been taken lately
in the federal transportation act IIndeIr
which it is proposed to group the
smlaller aInd 'akrrailroads with
larger systems for ptirposes of econ
om~y inl operation. Pl'aticuilar Inter.
esit ias beeln1 ariou sed in the l'ilmont
. eCtion of South l'arollna- on account
of the ritmor that the Carolina, Clinch
livid & Ohio railroal, an important
coal carrying line of the Southeast,
may be g;rotiped with itle Souithern rail
way, its chief coal disti buting comn
Ietitolr in this sectioln.
Iecau-sIe of tile (lest lucl t ion of comi
petition in coal carrying which the
arouping of these two roads is calcu
lated to bring aboutt, g!rave apprehen
sions have been voiced in '' is section
against this particular !)l of group
Tlhe question is whether the Clinch
field shall go to the Southern, the A.
C. 1., or the S. A. L. As for the S. A.
L., it may itself be grotuped with the
Illinois Central on account of the fact
than the same financial interests ir(
undersood to be back of hoth roads.
The people of this section, particu
larly' ILaurens, are interested in the
Clinchileld because of its physical Col
nlectiol with the C. & W. C., otur pril
cipal railroad line. As the C, & W.
C. is commonly accepted to be a sub
sidiary of the A. C. 1,. it occurs to us
that it -would he a happy event if the
Cli nchfield should 'be grouped with
the Coast Line, giving to Laurens what
it has long needed, a real trunk line to
the .\iddle West.
Miore than any other obstacle to the
grrowth of Laurens has been its loca
tion off a mainline thoroughfare. Weic
the Coast Line to take over the Clinch.
'hield, in a little while passenger trains
would he Itin through from Chicago to
F"lorida and thev wou ld run through
Of conurse some doUlit may be raised
as to whether or not the Coast Line
desires the Clinchlield, but it seems
that the acquisition of the Clinchfield
would be ol' immeasurI'able .belefilt to
it as well as the territory which it and
its tributary lines serve.
It <would he a great dlay for this city
when the C. & W. C., !iractically our
sole hope insofar as railway facilities
are concerned, Is lade a link In a real
tr-unk line from the lddle West :o
the Atlantic seaboard and Florida.

flONiD) Nl'ECTIO.YiS TI! ES DAY
In the excitement ever the close of
the enrolling books for the D~emocratic
primary next Tuesday, we fear' that a
good many electors of the City of Lan
r'ens have neglected to consider thec
merits of the bond Issue elections to
he held next Tuesday.
Ther'e are three Issues to be voted
on, one foir retirement of floating In
debtedness, one for improvement of
the 'water system and another for fin
provement of streets.
The -bond issue for the retirement
of -bonds does not mean1 any increase
in the Indebtedness of the cIty. Its ob
ject Is to relieve the city of the burden
of curcrent indebtedness wvhich cramps
its daily operations and to redtuce the
rate of Interest. being paid. C~ommoni
'business judphient dlemands a favor
able vote on tis .isstue.
The water su'pply of the city Is ad
mittedly Intolerable. The newly elect
ed putblic wvorks commission has given
no indication of Its plans for the im
prtovement of the 'system out of the
:proposed bond Issue, but the commis
sion during Its -short tenture of ofilce
has demonstrated its ability to ap
'proachi such matters in a thorough and
efficient manner, so It may 'be assttmed
that the money plaed~ at its disposal
will -be swell spent. TIhe health and
happiness of the city demand that this
improvement be made.
The bond issue to" '"e*et lnmnrove
ment is the only on<. .2 ,:.'-::1, that
the tax-payer may have reason to
sttudy over. It appears t 'rThe .^'!

ELECTS NEW OFFICERS
Annual Election of Offileers of Bois.
Terre Club Took Place Thursday
Dr. \V. D. Ferguson of this city, was
elected president of the Bols-Terre
country club when the annual election
of officers took place at the club house
Tihursday evening. Dr. Ferguson suc
ceeds Geo. 11. Elliis, of Clinton, whose
tenure of ollice was automatically end
ed through constitutional restriction.
])r. A. 'E. S-encer, of Clinton, was3
elected vice president and the follow
Ing were elected directors: from Clin
ton-'. .\. Balley, )r. James It. Cope
land, Dr. NI. J. McFadden and Geo. H.
Ellis: from Lairens-l-. 1). Eastei'by,
Geo. .\I. Wright, It. 1). Gray and .1. W.
At a subsequent ieeting of director3
W. It. AlcCuen was elected secretary
and treasurer' and It. 1). lenry, of
Clinton, assistant secretary and treas
urer. The following committees were
appointed: xecutive Committee-Geo.
\. E. 1). l'asterby, Dr. A. I-.
Spencer, Geo. ?I. Ellis; Membership
ComiIttee-. D. IEasterby, .J. W.
Todd, .Ir., r)I. Al. J. McFadden, C. MI.
Bailey and Dr. J. NI. Copeland. It was
practically decided to do aiway with
the grounds committee and leave its
work to the executive committee and
oflicers of the club.
The meeting prior to the election
of officers was largely of a routine ni
ture. Retiring President Ellis read his
report for the year, showing that the
club had enjoyed a 'line year with a
number of improvements. The presi
dent and associates in office 'were giv
en a vote of thanks for their labors
during the year.
'pon an unanimous vote of the club
the by-laws were changed to allow
active pastors of the coulity till the
privileges of the club without the pay
ment of the initiation fee but upon the
payment of the quarterly dues. The
'by-laws *were also amended to allow
residents of the county who are house
guests of members all the privileges
of the club ge:erally extended guests
from without the county.
A momtion by J. ". Jacobs, of Clin
ton, to increase the lipit of member
ship from 200 to 2)50 was lost. Ilow
ever, the motion of Mr. Jacobs and
a subhsequent one he made to allow
members who foulnd themselves uln
able to keep Ip thir diles to sell their
rights in the (1111) opened up such a
wide field of discussion that It was'
foun11d advisable to postponie action On
the entire matter until the next al
nial meeting. With a vlew of secu
ing a more eqiuita'ble rule oil this
phase of club membershil), the )resi
dent, on a substitutte motion of .\Mr. A.
C. Todd, was authorized to appoint a
committee to go into the subject and
make a recommendation at the next
Ieelings to lie Held at Witerloo and
in Youings Township.

"I Dbn't See Where
It All Goes To"
About once or twice a week you and your wife
wonder "where the money goes." jYou may
may be making more than ever but u seem
not to be getting anywhere.
Maybe it is a lack of system. You simply
"take in and pay out."
The first step in system is to see that out of
each week's pay, there is a certain amount
brought to our bank and put in a checking ac
count. Then, you will plan and prepare to
look out for this.
Following this, th%re is bound to come a day
of looking ahead to the:other items and the
first thing you know, you will see "where it
all goes to." Your cancelled checks are used
as a basis of creating a household budget for
the next month.
That's how fortunes start.
