A MISREPRESENTED SOUTH.
The South is blushing with shame today
because of the fat that she is being mis
represented in the United States Congress!
by men whom our Southern States have
elected and sent there to represent our
people. Be it said to the credit of the
northern representatives that they are
holding up the hands of the President of
this nation regardless of the fact that
many af them are for nd on the other side
of the fence politically. The congressman
today who is opposing the President's
plans for raising a national army is dis-:
gracing his district and disrupting his
party and weakening his administration.
It is and always has been a conceded
fact that in time of war or grave
peril the chief executive officer of this
nation should be allowed full sway in the
prosecution of his own plans for the sal
vation of his country. As a nation we have
today a man at the head of our govern
ment who is recognized as the strongest
man who ever held the reins of govern
mental authority in our land, and yet in
the face of these two facts we have a set
of congressmen in Washington who are
setting themselves up .against the plans
made by Woodrow Wilson for the preser
vation of this nation. Various excuses are
being offered by these men as to why they
oppose the President. One congressman
at least from South Carolina had the nerve
to come out and say that he believes his
plan is MIXH better than Mr. Wilson's.
*At least this congressman has recognized
in himself a great man among the South
Carolina representation in the, halls of
Congress. If Mr Clarke's idea' of men
rushing to the colors by the volunteer
system was sound it would have been
proven, for before this time there would
have been enough *of the flower of the
youth of our land already offered through
the volurteer system to furnish all the
men no iv asked for. The recruiting
stations and the marriage bureaus of our
land give an absolute proof that Mr. Clarke,
is absolutely wrong in his ideas along this'
As we blush with shame because our
iapresentatives bind the hands of our
president, the German officeers chuckle with
.delight at the many friends who have risen,
up at this hour in the halls of legislation
Sthis country to aid them in their fight
against the world and humanity. The
people of South Carolina should begin now
~and.mnake it so hot for their representatives
:in Congress that these representatives
would be compelled to listen to the voice of
their constituency rather than to be led by
their own conceited ideas of plans or theirj
desire to cater to some whim or personal1
FAIRFIELD COUNTY AWAKE.
The campaign that has just ended in this
county and which was waged for the pur
pose of arousing the farmer to the need of
preparedness along the line of supplying
himself with food and feedstuffs, has
shown with all certainty that the people
are thoroughly aroused to the situation
,hat faces them and that they are going
,o work this year with the determinatior
to work out their own salvation in thE
matter of living at home. We predici
from all indications on these trips tha1
there will be more food and feed stuffi
raised in Fairfield county this year thar
ever before in her entire history.
In this hour of national peril and suprem(
crisis the flag of the nation should becom(
an object of reverance on the part of oui
people. Of all the patriotic articles one oJ
the best we'have seen is the one we ar<
copying below from the Southern Ruralist
It is well worth perusal by every citizen o:
"When you see the Stars and Stripes dis.

Somebody may titter. It is popular to de

may blaspheme in the street, and stagge

street and pray to Almighty God, or if yot

IT IS THE ONLY AIR UNDER GOD'S
HEAVEN FOR WHICH YOU MAI
For all the signs and symbols since th(
world began, there is never another, sav(
only the cross sanctified on Calvary, so ful
of meaning as the flag of our country.
The piece of red, white and blue bunting
means five thousand years of struggl(
upwards. It is the century plant of humar
hope in bloom.
It means the answered prayer o:
generations of slaves, of the helots o
Greece, of.the human chattels of Rome, o
the vassals of feudalism, of the serfs o
Russia, of the blacks of America, of the
down-trodden people of the ages.
Your' flag stands for humanity, for at
equal opportunity to all the sons of men.
We haven't arrived yet at that goal; there is
injustice still' among us, many senseless
and cruel customs of the past still cling tc
us, but the only hope of righting the wrongs
of men lies in the feeling produced in ouw
bosoms by the sight of that flag.
It stands for no race. It is not like ar
English, French or German flag. It stands
or all men who will come and Jive with us
under its protection. It is the only banner
hat means mankind. Other flags mean a
glorious past, this flag means a glorious
uture. It is not so much the flag of oui
athers as it is the flag of our children, and
>f all children yet unborn. It is the flag
>f tomorrow---the signal of the "Good time
coming." It is not the flag of your king; il
s the flag of yourself and of your neighbors.
It has a po'.. eencealed in its fold> andC
catters abroad an influence from its flutter
ins That power and influence mean thai
in due time, slowly and by force of law, yei
surely as the footsteps of God, the lasi
mncient fraud shall be smitten; the last un
sarned privilege removed, the last irregu
arity set right, the last man shall have a
place to work and a living wage, the las1
roman shall have all her rights of persor
md of citizenship, and the last and least ol
hildren shall be sheltered and trained and
equipped by the sovereign state, and s(
lave their right to live.
Don't be ashamed when your thr9a'
chokes and the tears come, as you see il
lying from the mast of~ a ship in some
oreign port. You will never have a worth~
er emotion. Reverance it as you woulc
reverence the signature of the Diety.
By thousands the victims of old-world
aste are streaming westward, seeking her(
the thing that flag stands for---opportunity.
[t stands for the open door of ambitior
against the closed door of caste.
It wave s defience at all ghosts, that have
or :oig intimidated men, the ghost of mon
archy, the ghost of aristocracy, the ghosi
of war, the ghost of ecclesiastic rule; al]
they that still lay shadowy hands upon the
ife of Europe and Asia.
Listen, son! The band is playing "The
Star Spangled Banner." They have lei
loose "Old Glory" yonder. Stand up anc
Elrrah for the flao- of your country.'

Weasel Raids Charlie Thomp
son's Duck Pen.
Early Monday morning a wea
sel paid a visit to the duck pen
,!of Charlie Thompson for his
regular breakfast 6f young ducks.
Charlie heard a commotion among
the fowls but thought little
about it until it had continued
for some time. When he went
to investigate he met Mr. Wea
sel coming out of the fowl house
with a young duck. The first
shot from Charlie's gun failed to
hit the weasel, however the
second took effect and the wea
r sel was killed. A peculiar thing
was that the weasel could not be i
scared out of his prey and died
without having loosened his hold
on the young duck. An investi
gation showed that the weasel
t had already carried off five young
ducks and had come back for the
