An Article From The Manning Times
There is an old saying that "every
man is a prophet save in his own coun
try." This axiom applies equally as
well to your home town, that whatever
produced in another locality is sup
posed to be superior to what can be
produced or obtained at your own
No town can make the desired and
always to bo hoped for progress by
sending off for what you may require
to neighboring towns and cities. This
method of supplying your needs must
of necessity retard and restrict the
business advancement of a town.
There should be entertained and main
tained a pride and desire to build up
and develop your home town, and this
can only ho accomplished by endeavor
ing to secure whatever you may need
at your home. By this means trade
will be stimulated, a larger demand will
be created for merchandise of every de
scription, and consequently larger lines
of goods will be carried by the commer
cial clement of the town, who will nat
urally be compelled to purchase in
larger quantities, thereby enjoying
every advantage possessed by the mer
chants of neighboring points, increased
volumes of commodities will exert an
influence on the railroad officials, who
will give reduced rates and better fa
An increased trade will make a pros
perous town, which goes without say
ing, wHl induce capitalists at home and
abroad to invest money, aud a progres
sive town draws strangers to our gates
and fresh blood will have a tendency to
produce extra exertion and inject a
spirit of rivalry, which will be surely
the means of increasing the resources
of our town, which will in time assume
larger and more prosperous proportions.
This spirit of rivalry will contribute to
augment a natural desire for progress,
until from a comparatively small town
with limited business capacity the town
will expand until we will be sharp com
petitors of neighboring cities.
All these advantages can only be at
tained and enjoyed by patronizing and
encouraging home industry, not alone
by words, but the magic of the mighty

to get together and develop our town
so it will be second to none in commer

"Health Coffee" is really the closest
CollVe Imitation ever yet produced.
.This clever Coffee Substitute was re
cently produced by Dr. Shoop, of Ra
cine, Wis. Not a grain of real Coffee
in it either. Dr. Snoop's Health Coffee
is made from pure toasted grains, with
malt, nuts, etc. Really it would fool
an expert who might drink it for Cof
fee. No 2D or .'1(1 minutes tedious boil
ing. "Made in a minute," says the
doctor. Sold by .J. M. Philpot.
Pneumonia Worse Than Tuberculosis.
Contrary to the general opinion tuber
culosis is no longer ti e scourge of so
ciety, says the New York Times. Its
place as a death-dealing destroyer has
been taken by anotherdisease which is
making great havoc the world over.
This dominant slayer of the race is
pi cumonia. It is now the most deadly
of all diseases. Every year it is killing
oil' about 110,000 persons in the United
States. Allowing a mortality rate of
pne-fifth of the total number of cases,
this means that there are about 700,000
Cases annually in this country. In New
York, with its sudden changes of weath
er and severe winters, 36 in every 10,000
persons die of the disease every year.
Boston comes next wit h a death rate of
.'{0 in every 10,000, and Philadelphia and
Chicago are not far behind. In some
European cities, however, the ghastly
rcsujts are much worse than in the
United Slates, notably in Vienna, where
pneumonia carries off 40 in every 10,000
persons every year. London's popula
tion suffers severely from the inroads
of the disease, as also of Stockholm
ami other cities. Berlin is perhaps the
bei i olf of the European cities in this
respe? '; its mortality rate from pneu
monia is about 10 in every 10,000.
No Need of Suffering from Rheumatism.
It is a mistake to allow rheumatism
to become chronic, as the pain can al
ways be relieved, and in most cases a
Pain Palm. The relief from pain which
it affords is alone worth many times its
cost. It makes sleep and rest possible.
Even in cases of long standing this lini
ment should be used on account of the
relief which it affords. 26 and BO cent

Col. Henry Watterson, editor of the
Louisville Courier-Journal, has the fol
lowing to say in reference to the nom
ination of William J, Bryan at Denver:
"1 have accepted Mr. Bryan as the
Inevitable candidate for the Democratic
party. He will be nominated on the
first ballot. I think Mr. Bryan is
stronger than over and has a much bet
ter chance to win."
N'o greater mistake can be made than
to consider lightly the evidence of dis
ease in your system. Don't take des
perate chances Oil ordinary medicines.

Laurcns to he Congratulated.
The Advertiser came out last week
and announced its platform in the fol
lowing words:
"Our platform: Whiskey drinking is
dangerous to say the h ast of it. and as
a citizen we refuse to help create de
mand for a commodity which may harm
us or others.
"Our platform: Whi?kcy selling is
wrong in principle, inherently wrong,
and as a citizen and vot< r we refuse to
authorize its sale."
We congratulate not only Editor
Honey, hut the county of I.aureus upon
having a newspaper that prizes princi
ple above everything else. It is a great
thing for the people of that old county
which has been ruin cursed for so many
years to have such a newspaper.
Of course some of the nu n who ad
vocate the sale of liquor Will slander
him and his newspaper. They cannot
help it. That is the stock in trade of
most of the men who stand on that
side, but it will all amount to nothing.
Truth is eternal and it is bound to win
in the end in spite of the lying slander
ers of the enemy of all that is good.
And what is more, it will not be long
before a newspaper that stands for the
liquor traffic will not be tolerated in any
conmuinity. ?Greenwood Journal.
An Unwilling Sacrifice.
One hundred trunks full of feminine
finery, belonging to the sweet girls of
Winthrop, were burned to ashes in a
baggage car at Rock Hill yesterday.
Was there ever, since the days of
Savanarola's pyres of vanity in Florence,
such a sacrifice to the insatiable flames?

Those New berry Husbands.
A Laurens woman says that "a hus
band is such a handy man around the
house." She went on to tell how he
could wash the dishes and on a pinch
get a very good meal. A Newberry
woman finds her husband quite a handy
man also, for he "picks up chips and
minds the baby; then he is company,
too." But most Newberry husbands
spend mighty little time around the
house except nights and Sundays.

True! Too True.
Candidate Blease, by the way, has
changed his platform since his last ef
fort for gubernatorial honors. Laurens
How many times has Gov. Ansel
changed his platform in the last six
years. Most of our leaders are rather
followers than leaders. We have a
recollection that is somewhat distinct
that all of our candidates for governor
six years ago were whoopers up of the
State dispensary system, including the
present governor. Two years ago Gov.
Ansel won on the platform of abolish
ing the State institution and having lo
cal county option as between county
dispensary and prohibition. Now he
stands for Stale wide prohibition.
Somewhat a follower of the tide of
public opinion as he interprets it.

The Need ol Men.
"The Index is deeply gratified to note
the great interest which is being taken
over the country in the important mat
ter of sending a strong delegation to
the Legislature from this county.
"The need of good, strong, sensible
men can be illustrated by an incident in
last week's Slate Convention. In the
midst of a parliamentary tangle when
it took close attention and no little
mental effort to know where one was
at one Greenwood delegate, new to the
business, turned to another Greenwood
delegate in the same boat and said,
'Suppose this was the Legislature, what
chance would a pco-WCO have to get
anything accomplished?' And the other
delegate answered, not elegantly, but
forcibly, 'As much as a tallow legged
man would have in a walking match in
Hades.' And so he would." Green

Stomach Troubles.
Many remarkable cures of stomach
troubles havo been effected by cham
berlain's Stomach and Livor Tablets.
One man who had spent over two thou
sand dollars for medicine and treatment
was cured by a few boxes of these tab
lets. Price 2? cents. Samples frei- at

Dreams ami Nightmares.
Many of our commonest dreams are
occasioned by bodily conditions or sur
roundings. Loosened sheets at the foot
of the bed on a cold night soon deposit
a sleeper's feet in rivers or snow banks,
just as a second helping at dinner or a
tendency to lie on one's back in bed
readily conjures up whole l< gions of
spooks. Certain evidence on this point
was collected in Dr. G. Stanley Hall's
psychological laboratory at Clark Uni
versity from personal testimony. From
this it would appear that children prefer
animals for their nightmares, whereas
adults incline toward burglars, jailers
and the like. Lad} 'a Realm.

Another Laurens Church Speaks Out.
A week or two ago we published n
notice of the step taken by the First
Baptist church, of Laurens, in deciding
to discipline any members who vote for
the sale of liquor.
We felt confident that this good ex
ample would be followed, and sure
enough the Advertiser reproduces a
letter from the Raptist Courier written
to that paper by Thomas H. Hurts,from
which we take the following:
"At our last conference the church
took high ground in favor of temper
ance and prohibition against the use of
liquor as a beverage and its sale legal
or illegal, by private individuals or cor
porations, and wo went on record in the
following resolutions:
"That it is the duty of every church
member to abstain from its use and
take his stand for total prohibition.
"That it is the duty of every member
of this church to vote against the traffic
and sale of the same whenever an op
portunity is afforded.
"I believe the time has come when
Christian people must take a decided
stand for the right, have convictions
and stand by them.
"I hope to let you hear from us later
on. *'
The name of this church is Union and
it is in Laurens county, and the pastor
is KeV. W. D. Hammett. This is not
the end. The day is coming when no
decent man will dare raise his voice in
the interest of the liquor traflic. It
will not then be necessary for churches
to discipline their members for voting
for the sale of whiskey. There are
some mighty good people in Laurens.?

Who invented soap? That this is not
a modern convenience is well known.
Hut just when it came into general use
is a mystery.
In Biblical times cleansing agents
were used. The books of .Job and Jere
miah contain the word "soap." Hut
this is merely a convenient use of the
word in translation. The Hebrew word
"borrith," for wdiich it was submitted,
is a general term for cleaning sub
stances. What these substances were
is unknown, but were probably little
like the modern soap.
Pliny speaks of the invention of soap
by the Cauls, wdio, however, used it
only as a sort of pomade or hair dress
ing. He also refers to the use of both
hard soap and soft soap by the (icr
mans. The use of fuller's earth which
has saponaceous qualities, for cleansing
purposes, was known to the Romans.?
