Mr. D. M. McEachern has returned
to El Paso, Texas, to resume his en
tomological work, after spending a
short vacation here with his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McEachern. Mr.
McEachern is an exceptionally fine
young man and is discharging the
duties devolving upon him in quite
a highly creditable manner.
Miss Louise Harrison has returned
from Wagener, where she was the
guest of Miss Virgie C:ok.

The Rev. Mr. Eubanks, pastor of
the Longtown Presbyterian church,
will take his vacation during' the
month of August. He expects tc
spend a part of the.time in Montreat,
N. C. Mr Eubanks is somewhat in
disposed and his many friends hope
that the stay at Montreat will prove
highly beneficial to him.
Miss Marie -Mayer has been on a
visit to -relatives in Ridgeway.
Mr. Ernest Stewait and Mr. Win.
Stewart, of Columbia, have been
.visiting their brother, Mr. D. P.
Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McEachern and
Mr. John McEachern, Jr., motored to
Columbia recently to see Miss Na
omi McEachern, who is there for
treatment. Their numerous friends
will be pleased to learn 'that Miss
Naomi is improving.
Mr. Joe Fry, of..Charlotte, and Mr.
Tom Fry,' of Chester, were recent
guests of Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Boul
It is a very easy job for those
living on the Rion road to sit back
on their "Jewelaws" and advise Mos..
sy Dale and others to get out and
work their roads when they have the
Winnsboro Granite to. and the en
ergetic , 'Jiblic spirited Heywood to
keep up their roads, besides if we
must ndt wait for our commissioner
to act what use have we for a com
missioner, and if we have to go down

knwtevoice of him who would
make you believe great things, al
though it is in ink. There is no other
like unto him in the use of "big I and
little u." This same Rion reporter
was once seen to step behind a tree
to look at his watch for fear some
one would ask him for the time of
day. That kind of a man is not go
ing to work on the public roads un
less he sees where his pay is coming
The Bethel correspondent notes
that Mossy Dale and two gentlemen
halted at his place the other day,
but was afraid to get out. *Did you
catch that ? He doesn't say Mossy
Dale and two other gentlemen. Now,
why were we afraid to get out ?
One reason is because we have a
reputation to keep up and another
is because of the fact that where
two or three Methodists are gathered
together there shall be a collection
taken and there being three of us no
sooner than we hit the iground he
would have passed the hat.
Mrs. Smith had a fine cow to choke
on a pear the other day. A handle
was used to push the pear down,
and as the handle was being pulled
back about twelve inches of it was
broken off and swallowed by the
cow. Will some of- these Sein Fein
Cathcarts tell us whether t e cow
will live or die ? If we knew that she
wouh die George Perry could prob
ably sel! her to some one who has
not heard of the accident.
R. J. Stewart brought bar~k some
bad news from town last Saturday.
He says that the boss told him that
everything had to be paid in full
by the first of October. Now, such
news as that, coupled with the boll
weevil dry weather and the Beck
hanms. is enough to run a man cra
zy. If it was not for my 7 ttle
:hildren I would leave from about
he'e. I am getting tired anyway,

There Is a charm about old grave
yards. They are to us, says the Sprintg
tield epblic':1, what lellow autunili
afterntonns cannot express. They are
deserted old houses. haunted by former
owners. In theta is the reminder of
other days that mnakes up the atmos
phere of old theaters where many fa
mous Hamlets and Lady Teazles have
trod the boards. There one can follow
"the hoary chronicle of the ages" back
to the beginning of time.
There are little graveyards by the
sea wihi waving gra:;ses an(! wild in
nanor; p .cs where sea captains are
laid to rest. There are others shut off
from the business section of large
cities by ga t es tirit clo.se at suidown.

However graveyards differ. they are
all a friendly resting place for the idle
wanderer or the vagabtond poet. A

and too new. Choose a God's acre
where the gr:ss Is overgrown, where

least it old part, mellowed by the
pa.sing of time.
Probably Fastest Running Animal.
One of the fastest as well as one of
the most Interest:ng aninials known is
the cheetah, the hunting leopard of In
dia. These t-nimualt. on account of the
great speed which they attain, are
tamed by the Indians and trained to
hunt antelopes. While the hunted an

and finally bring them down with a
well-timed bound which places the
fangs of the cheetah in the throat of
the quarry. The hunters at once cut
the throat of the antelope, and the
cheetah drinks the lood. Next the

Chickens Singed With Acetylene.
One of the most recent uses for
acetylene is for singeing chickens. It ~
is sid that the acetylene tlamze, pirtp

Many persons, otherwise
vigorous and healthy, are
bothered occasionally with
indigestion. The effects of a
disordered stomach on the
system are dangerous, and
prompt treatment of indiges
tion is important. "The only
medicine I have needed has
been se-mething to aid diges
tion hand clean the liver,"
writes Mr. Fred Ashby, a
McKliney, Texas, farmer.
"My medicine is
fur indigestion and stomach
trouble of any kind. I have
never found anything that
touches the spot, like Black
Draught. I take it in broken
doses after meals. For a long
time I tried pills, which grip
ed and didn't give the good
results. Black-Draught liver
medicine is easy to take, easy
to keep, inexpensive."
