WHY BUY IN LAURENSI

Why buy in Laurens This questioi
may be answered by asking another
Why buy elsewhere? The first ques
tion is much more easily answere<
than the second. It is true, howevei
that for some people there is a fas
cination for taking risks, particularl;
i if the risk has a gilt edge. A Lauren
ma!ni ans wezied an advertisement in
reputable l'aper, enclosing a few (101
lars of hard earied money for a watel
which was sutiposedly being sold at
a'reatly reu(ieed price. A few day
after it came it refused to keep t imc
The local jeweler made it clear tha
he could have su pplied a better watel
for less money. and that if it had no
'pt good tile he would have repaire,
it without cest. Why buy ill Laurens
Hecau :e the element of risk is elimi
natc-d and whlen meirchandise is not a
ire presen ted the dealer gladly make
We should buy in Laurens for tw,
reao-ons, for ;'ersonal and civie rea
sons. From a selfish standpoint w
should bily her'. In our stores it i
an easy matter to find what we want
miercants are very obliging and the
try in wvery way to Mlease. In pur
'hasing here the buyer feels that ther
s a personal element in the transac
tion which doe. no., prevail when on
'laces a mail order or buys where h
is an entire stranger. Local buyin!
inotlrages h-a leis to eater to person
al xaints. Fromi any nagle the 'itles
tion is viewed i: is clear that it pay
'.'-ii selfishly to buy in l.al urns.

tions it would b diflirlilt to suppor
churche s, banks, ebaritable institu
tions, raise taxes for maintenance o
scloolc and (ivi( purposes. It's bet
tor to boost than to knock. We ma;
boost our city by atronizing its busi
ness men, or we may knock our cit;
by patronizing 'husiness men of othe
cities. We ought to be loyal to on

largely determiines the prosperity 0

Papal Hat Worn In 860.
Originally the tiara or triple crown
of the pope, was a plain high cap,
much like thos; in which doges of
Venice are so often represented in oil
pictures. It was first introduced by
Pope Nicholas I, in 80. Just when
the first coronet was added is a mut
