HOT WEATHER POINTERS FOR
SHIPPERS OF HOGS.
*To prevent losses to hogs in tran
sit during hot weather, the live stock
department of the Southern Railway
System has issued the following sug-.
gestions to shippers:
Haul or drive hogs to station in
ample time to allow them to become
rested and cooled before loading.
When ordering a car for loading
hogs, insist upon a clean one, bedded
with sand clay or earth.
Wet thoroughly the bedding and
interior of car before loading.
Give only a small feed of grain
before shipping. Heavy feed means
more body heat generated.

BETTER BISCUIT CONTEST.
Avon Club Girl Winner for Fairfield
On Friday morning, July 1st, quite
a number of Home Demonstration
Club girls met at the home of Mrs.
Geo. Clowney for the purpose of de
ciding the winner from Fairfield
county in the "Better Biscuit" con
The girls were divided into groups
and at 10 o'clock the biscuit making
began. Miss Lola Snider, State food
specialist, scored each girl on the
technical way in which she worked.
After the biscuits were baked they
were scored also and the two scores
were added and divided by 2 and thus
the final score was obtained. Sheila
Kerr, 11 years old, made the highest
score, 92 1-2; Mary Pope, next high
est. with a score of 92; Dorothy Lig
on next highest with a score of 90,
and Nell Clarke 87 1-2.
All the girls made exellent bis
cuits and Fairfield should be proud
of their young bread makers and of
the good work these girls are doing.
In September Sheila Kerr will go
with her agent to Spartanburg and
compete against all of the county
winners in the Piedmont district. If
she should win there then she goes
to the State Fair and compete for
championship in biscuit making in
the State of South Carolina.

THEY CALLED HIM "WARRY."
Appalling Irreverence That Shocked
Dignified Butler on Duty at the
One of the most imposing butlers
now in captivity south of Boston or
New York buttles at the White House.
He has been on the job for a long time,
and nobody of his race in the world
could wear his uniform of blue and
gold with more distinction or hauteur.
He would take a fat part, to speak in
stage parlance, against any kind of
emperor, and a whole flock of princes
would be pie for him in any competi
tion for the limelight. He is over six
feet tall, and dignity is his middle
name. Life, at least while he is on
duty. is a terrible serious affair for
him, and the smile he gives those he
knows Is not one that means anything
more than welcome.
The wives of two senators called at
the White House not long since. As
they left, after leaving their cards, as
is the custom at times, one of them
turned and thought she saw the Presi
dent himself behind the curtain of a
near-by window. She had known
President Harding when he was in the
senate and didn't believe very much in
dignity and the putting on of dog and
"Why." she said, "there's Warry
now." The butler overheard. He
gasped. The senator's wife turned to
"Isn't that Warry there?" she asked.
The butler almost dropped to the
flagstones of the portico.
"Yes, mem; no mem," he said
rapidly. "I think it was not the Presi
"Well, I think it was," insisted the
senator's wife. "and when you see
Warry you just tell him we caught
him that time."

Much of the lore of ancient palimp
