of the Chester schools, spent several
days with Mr. Sam Brice before re
turning to her home in Orangeburg.
Mr. Robert Mcllroy was elected deL

to the Sunday school convention
which is meeting at Winthrop College
The Fairfield chapter C. of C. held
its regular monthly meeting with the
directress, J. F. Coleman, Friday af
ternoon. Beauregard was the sub

ings by Misses Gladys Stewart Inez
Harvey and Francis Harvey. Roll

chapter. Misses Ellen Wallace Brice
and Nannie Boyce Brice were ap
pointed on the flower committee and
the president, Miss Francis Harvey,
was appointed to make out the ro.
grams. The July meeting will be
held with Misses Elizabeth and Ida
I hear many favorable comments
,on The News and Herald nowadays.
Who would have thought that Broth
er Dees could accomplish so much
in so short a time ?
I think that some one who knows
the man from Georgia who is build
ing the road from Winnsboro to
Simpson ought to go to him and ad
vise him to change his name, just
while he is in this county, as I un
derstand that his name is Beckham.
A change to Dishwater. Buzzardroost
or just anything would be a lighter
load to carry than Beckham.
This community has the poorest
prospect for a cotton crop that I
have seen since Cornwallis passed
through the neighborhood.
A certain preacher was sitting by
the roadside in his car a few days
ago. Three or four bundles of oats
were thrown in the car. The preach
er soon began fingering in his hair
and brought forth three boll weevils.
Now the question arises, did they
come out of the oats or were they
bred where they were caught.
At a banquet at the Jefferson some
time ago this jcribe was called upon
to temst Winnsboro, and not being
acer tomed to speaking in public, on
the impulse of the moment the fol
icwing is,.1#Mthat he could think of:
"Here is to grand old Winnsboro;
may her glorious record of the past
be surpassed in the future, as gen
eration after generation succeed each
other; but may she never, no never,
produce another Red Gladden."
While educational interests are at
fever heat all over the State and else
where and the papers are full of
commencements, school closings. etc.,
'would suggest that the trustees of
Bethel school build a community
house. Brother Warren Castles is
too old a man to have tio ;stand
tlhrough a three hour program, as
we had to do th, other night. while
I did not mind it myself. The local
talent would be greatly developed by
a. entertainment once a month on the
order of what they had at the close
of school and nothing less than a
community house of huge proportions
will accommodate that growing school
and ever increasing population; and
the populationi is indeed increasing.
There can be seen beautiful little car
riages on the porches of homes,
where the cry of a hungry baby was
never heard until recently. It is
true some are less fortunate and have
to apply to the bureau of babies in.
OColumbia for that great comfort.
~They *are to be pitied, but praised.
I wonder if those town folks are
still eating cow peas. I often think
of them when I am eating spring
chicken and good old slavery-time
blackberry pie with sugar in it.
I heard a man say the other day
that J. L. Robinson was a better
neighbor than he was before he got
his leg hurt. If that is true, it
would be well enough for him to get
the other one broken "smack" off
if thy leg offend thee cut it off and
cast it from thee.
