We find only two inmates in the
poor house, one of each sex, and who
seem to be well cared for. On the
poorhouse farm are two mules in
good condition, one wagon and har

cotton from last year's crop. The
crop this year is not promising on
account of the boll weevil. The
twenty-five acres in corn is fairly
good. The buildings are all in bad

about one hundred acres of timber

purpose of erecting new buildings.

IStewart vs. Ellison.
Board of County Commissioners
On Monday afternoon a goodly
number of members met to dis
cuss the'fall program for the Better
Winnsboro Club. The main subject
for the afternoon was the "Ladies'
Room" at the Community buildisg.
The privilege of using this room
has been given the club if they fur
nish and take care of it. Mrs. T.
K. Elliott and Mrs. Eunice Obear
had been put on a committee to find
out just what is on hand for it now
and just what is lacking.
Any furnishings suitable for the
foom will be acceptable from our
public-spirited towns people and we
beg donations from any that will
give. We expect to use this room
as a nucleus for.a reading room and
libiary; and so presents of books,
nagazines and pictures will be
strictly in order.
The treasurer reported $12.15
paid out for insurance on the piano,
same being high on account of the
moving picture. This leaves a bal
ance of $43.88 in the bank to our
credit. ($50 was paid the first of the
summer on the insurance for the
Copmunity building.) $2.50 more was
handed in on the piano rent, leaving
only $2.50 still due us. The Thurs
day Afternoon Bridge Club has do
nated $5.00 to the Civic League, and
has pledged the fines of the Club
for one year-the fines being col
lectedfor tardiness of members.
Every-me will notice that we are
having the gtQne .wall repaired
around the communi . Please
help us find stone slabs or d e
posts. If they cannot be donated we
will gladly buy them.
The stone masons are at a stand
still now for lack of slabs. Notify
Mrs. Edwin McDonald and she will
send for them promggy
The last . tt o
fered for discussi. was a very imn
portant one, and do please, every
man, woman and child, get behind it
We want our Main street cleaned .v
ery Saturday evening. We demand
it. What is the use of cleaning up
before the Saturday's trade? -Aid
we earnestly entreat our citizens to
use those splendid garbage baskets
now on the streets Put every piece .
of waste paper in them and teach
others by example what they are
meant for. Let's everybody work
for this. The question has been ask

show you what we CAN do.
