Brother Bob on the subject. It is hoped
that he sees objections to the scheme
which he wtll be ab'e to point out with
characteristic force.
If the Laurens people in tho neigh
borhood of Fountain Inn should wish
to leave Laurons Tue Advertiser
will allow them the use of its columns
to discuss the matter of course but The
Advertiser cannot think that they
are dlssatistled with Laurons. Laurens
certainly wishes to keep them. The

It is said that a strong movement has
been started to build the railway
through Sulllvans township to Green
ville which was graded long ago. Im
portant cotton mill corporations in An
derson and Greenville counties are said
to be interesting themselves in the
project. A public meeting to "push it
along" may be held.

It is of most urgent importance to
Laurens that everybody come forward

here Laurens has a fine chance?the
best chance. It must not be thrown
Thk Advertiser has said all that
it can on the subject. The following
letter from a man who has been a
leader in all matters here and whoso
reputation as a shrewd buslnoss man
extends throughout South Carolina
presents the ca9e:
mr. dial's leeter,
Fellow Citizens:?
It is too lato to write, but now is the
time to work and subscribe your money
to briDg the Columbia Female College
to Laurens.
It will not do to sit down and say we
can't get It, nor will it do to say that
there is no necessity for each to work
because wo are satisfied it will come
here, and because we have a committee
to look after this matter. I do not
know whether I am on the committee
or not, however this ia of no moment.
Every citizen, man, woman and child
in Laurens county ought to subscribe
whatever amount they can pay to get
this College.
If you have no girl to educate, your
relatives and friends have, and if you
are not interested in education you are
interested in selling your land and
selling various other things, and in
building up the community in general.
Laurens has merely oxisted by main
force, as it were. We have lost the fol
lowing opportunities:
First: Tho Greenville & Columbia
We were told not to subscribe to
this, that Laurens was on the natural
route, and the road was sure to come
this way.
The Piedmont Air Line went above
The Seaboard Air Line crossed below
We lost Winthrop, trusting to nat
ural advantages, and thinking certain
friends would have it located here. We
could mention various other lost oppor
tunities, but time is short, and the
foregoing are sufficient to call to our
attention the necessity of acting imme
diately. This is not only a matter for
the town of Laurens, but for the whole
county as well.
We are assured we can got this col
lege by raising a certain amount of
money, and it is our sincere hope
that everybody will send their sub
scription in this week. You can write
to Mr. Duncan, Dr. Aiken, or any one
else here, and your subscription will
be entered.
This matter will be settled definitely
next week, and if we miss this college
in all probabality we will nover have an
other in our lifetime. Parents who
havo daughters to educate can do so
now at one fourth the cost it will take
to send the girls off.
After tho matter has been settled
don't say that if you had known your
subscription would have brought It
here, you would have subscribed, but
do so now. Nor don't sit down and
complain about what others are doing
but let eaoh one of us subscribe liber
erally ourselves and success is ours.

Thk Advertiser has reoeived a
charming letter of acknowledgement
from Miss Annie Austin of Cross Hill,
winnor in first contest.
This one Is from Prof. Bryson's school
at Waterloo:
During Elizabeth's reign, the Catho
lic Church was the principle church of
England, A class of people then rose
up who called themselves Puritans or
Protestants because they protested
against the princlplo religion and
wanted to purify It of Catholicism. As
thoy could not get a Royal license to
come to America, thoy determined to
go to Holland where, at that time, all
men could worship as they pleased.
After remaining there twelve years
they succeeded in obtaining the li
lenso. In 1620 these Pilgrims set forth
for the new world in the Mayflower.
Landing at Plymouth in Massachu
setts they gave thanks for the safe
This day became known as Thanks

Tho following Is from Mr. W. W.
Kennedy's school at Shiloh:
Taking everything into consideration
peas aro one of the most useful crops a
farmer can raise.
They may bo planted whon it is too
wot to do anything else on the farm,
any time from Juno till tho middle of
July, either in rows, broad-castod or
planted between corn.
They require very little, if any atten
tion, after boing planted, till thoy got
ripo and aro ready to bo picked.
The peas aro now picked and threshed
Then tho vines aro cut with a mower,
raked up, and stacked on poles about
flvo feet high. Those polos have two
short planks nailed across them near
tho ground. This is to let the air in to
cure tho vines.
When they havo l>een properly cured
they aro taken off of these poles, hauled
up and stored away for winter use.
Pea vinos make excellent feed for
cows, horses, or most any kind of cat
Wo havo several varieties: Among
thorn may be mentioned the unknown,
the c'ay, the speckled, the blue, the
cow poa and many others too numerous
to hum it ion.
I boliove the big blue pea yields more
per acre, although it doesn't have as
much vine.
It will yield from ton to twenty bush
els por aero and will sell from $1.50 to
$2.00 at planting timo.
Tho unknown pea will yield from one
to two tons of hay per acre and will
bring from $ .75 to $1.00.
Our foro-fathors never knew the
value of peas, either as feed or as a
fertilizor. But now with the machin
ery that is in use, and as men are be
coming mqre and more enlightened, all
up-to-dato farmers cut, rake and stack
tho same day and the vines can remain
in tho field several days.
It has been deoided that It pays to
sow peas, if you never piok the peas nor
cut the vines, because they Improve the
land so much.

III? Particular Want,
In a certain Sunday BChool tho Bub
Ject of the lesson was the condition of
man In Eden. On a largo leaf sus
pended in the room were named, cer
tain gifts with which God had blessed
man. Among these wns mentioned the
giving of a wifo. The pastor In somo
remarks to the children tried to show
that roan needed company.
"If," said ho, "you had a dog at
home or a playful kitten or a beautiful
song bird, would that be all you would
They agreed that it would not.
?'What more would you want?" he
asked, expecting that they would an

ters. After a pause a little fellow
abont three years old, with a thin, tott
voice, spokw up:
"A wife."

"People should know and value bet
ter cheese a* food," said a physician
the other day In discussing tho diet
question. "It is true that freshly made
domestic cheese is hard to digest, but
nothing Is so easily digested ns any
of tho Imported cheeses and nothing
Is more nutritions. Weight for weight
Roquefort, Brie, Camembert and Swiss
cheeses are more nutritious than tho
best beef or steak. They are moro
easily digested, and thoy give tho saino
sort of nourishment that is derived
from fresh meat, so that in the time of
a meat famine the well cured and well
aged imported cheeses are tho best sub
stitute thnt can be found for beef, nnd,
as consumed, tho best of cheese Is
cheaper. A twcnty-flvo cent Brio
cheese, for instance, will feed moro
persons and nourish them better than n
dollar's worth of beef. Two ounces of
these cheeses have the same food valuo
as a pound of the best prlmo beef."
