With this Issue, Tm; ADVKKTI Rf?H closes its first volume. ?Mio year ago, with many misgivings as to its future, but with the conviction that energy, enterprise, ami a strict adherence to principles would meet a just reward, wo launched out up on the sea ot* Journalism. Young in years, and without experience, it was expected that we should make blunders. Mistakes we have made, and doubtless serious ones, bu*, whatever course the paper bas pursued, ii has been from a consci entious sense Of its Justice ami in tegrity. The success that lins crowned our .first year's labors in this new Hold, Is gratifying in the extreme, and we can gratefully say, beyond our most sanguine expectations. Our subscriptions have steadily in creased from t he ft rs bj and to-day, I with a genuine feeling of pride, we | sec that lhere aro but few homes in Laurens County, where Tin: Al) V KUTI 8 KU ls not a welcome visitor. While our advertising patronage has not been as large as it might have been, it has come from tho substantial business men of this community, and it affords us infinite pleasure to know that those w in? us ? our columns have done so w ith tho belief that they get full value in return. Tm: AnVKlirrsKU has made some warm friends, and during the first year of its existence, many fa vors ami courtesies hu ve been be stowed, for which we sincerely return thanks. In the future, asin the past, wo can only promise to use our best endenvours to make . ?be paper more worthy Ol" the liber al support it receives. TlIE ADVUUTISF.R has only to say in starling ?,?i ;t pow year, "Speak of mo as 1 am, noth ing extenuate, nor set down aught iu malice?" THU SITUATION, Prom our exchanges we notice that almost every County Is nov. excited over tin' fnrniors' move ment, indeed, we see nothing new 111 any. The -ame program ob served by Laurens is now being followed In other places, and we sincerely trust that no greater harm will result from this w hole sale denunciation of existing in stitutions, and these incendiary speeches, than has fallen upon us. Laurens, aller the Columbia Con vention, took the load ill this new I movement. When it first appeared,) it seemed that the farmers of thc land had determined to organize j to promote agriculture. They de nied other motives. At length, by. degrees, a different eli mont crept Into thc organizations. I'm- u time 1 it appeared thal some men w hose j records were nt least questionable, whose views were radical, and. whose only object w as self-agran-1 dizeiiicilt, would sway tho minds of tho populace, and upon hare promises of deliverance from the evils of the liorfr,-promises impos sible of fulfilment, and evils toa great extent imaginary, it appear* d at Hines that into such hands the government might fall. This state of u ff airs, although^ gaining a wider support and J ne' fUudng at?Pk ?.'/.."'?"iv .>"...-' '."pro speccu, abd with considerate an lAM.wgrdj im.e* . A, m than any such revolutionary organiza tion sime the inauguration of tho peaceful and harmonious Demo cratic administration ill South Caro lina, is but an organized effort on thc part of sore-head politicians to overthrow the powers that be. It is tho legitimate offspring of the new deal agitation, which took thc rounds several months ago. It is nothing more serious than a kick oj'tho "outs" against the "'ins/' Jleyoml question, some of the fire-eaters of Laurens County have gone far beyond their leader Capt. Ti i,j,MA N*. While thc movemeiil of Mr. Tl l.i.M A N ls by no means dead in this County, and not likely to die soon, we believe the objec tionable part, which some Wily -politicians sought to Inject Into the movement, has Deon eliminated, jmd during the coming campaign, candidates will bc countenanced, not because of their /.eal in chasing a pjiaidom, but Ibo rca!

A correspondent in tho ZVeics und ( 'ouvier a-ks If thc insulated or non Insulated lightning rod- are safest. The Xews and Courier suya: "There is no question, we be lieve, that n rod must h.' perfectly Insulated in order to protect the building to which it io attached. Otlierwlao the electric lluid i-* not only attracted to the house, but ls likely to be led Into it by thc sup ports of the rod, thus exposing the Inmutes t<> the very danger they seek to avoid." The Xeten and Courier is mis taken. There ls a question ns to the best mode of protecting houses from lightning, and we Incline to wurds the theory of uninsu lated rods. The new theory, ad vanced by dorman scientists, is that the greatest good to lie de rived from a lightning rod, is when it Ls placed in direct contact with tho building. Electricity, duringa storm, Is not only In the ?iii* and tho clouds, but permeates houses, trees, Ao., and consequently, tho danger is that trees, houses, ive., become over-charged. By having tho rod at Inched directly to tho building, inasmuch ?is it is a better conductor thu ti wood or stone, the electricity is drawn from the building all the while, and passes OlF, the rod acting as a safety-valvo and preventing an over-charge. When tho rod is once electrified, it being a good i onductor of electricity, the current will not leave Ulltll drawn oil* by a better conductor, which is found in the moist etrth. Some w ould sup that a lightning rod is only of ser vice when the current is so great as td be perceptible. This ls U mis take, lt- work begins whenever the slightest current comes in con tact with it, and it continues thus to draw off electricity during tho continuance of a storm. The groat good is In neutralizing positivo and negative currents. [f the United States should con clude to swap dynamiters, with Canada, for embezzlers, what a punic would ensue in tho Domin ion.

The idea ls to spring; bis name upon tho convention at the right moment, and it is as- I sorted that he will go through with n whoop lind a hurrah. This is no idle talk.

A very largo man, a desperate fellow who had often boasted that he could not be whipped, became involved in a quarrel with a small man. Well, after the fight was over a friend of the desperate man said to ilim : "Why, Abe, he tore you all to pieces." "Yus.' "Mopped up tho township with you." "That's whut." "Rit off one of vour oars." "Exactly." "Ru I nod vour clothes." "Yus." "Pulled one of vour eves out." "D'lieve he did." "is nocked out a couple of your teeth." "Vas." "Ile don't weigh 100 pounds, either."
