It seems inevitabe that public

even when he seeks to lead the
simple life in a luxurious tent in
Texas. This is the penalty of
greatness. Traveling even in a
special train with a retinue of
railroad presidlents, it is as im
pokssible for him to escape curious
observation as it would for Na
poleon and his marshals or a pop

mographs of Wall street are ad
justed to regard the slightest tre

Dr. Harold N. Guilfoyle. of
Norwood. Pa.. has succeeded Dr.
E. M. Nighbert in charge of the
tick eradication work in York
Chester and Cherokee counties,
and has estab!ished his head
quaters at Yorkville He has
two men at work in each of the
counties named, and a little later
on as the ticks begin to show
signs of their annual develop
ment,will increase his force. Dr.
Nighbert, formerly in personal
charge of the work in State, now
has supervision over all work in
South Carolina and Georgia and
has his headquaters for the pres
ent in Atlanta. Dr. Guilfoyle
says the people of York have
taken a most intelligent interest
in the work so far, and with the
same kind of cooperation in the
future that he has had in the
past he hopes to make good
progess before next frost.
Trees For County Roads
The State had in a recent
issue an editorial on the care of
trees, in which it was pointed
out that Pennsylvania had by a
new law prescribed a fine of $5
for cutting or otherwise dam
aging a tree growing by a pub
lic highway. Also the city of
Denver was cited as an instance
of progressiveness along the line,
having distributed among its
residents 20,000 trees.
Other cities and towns are
waking up to the value of trees,
and are doing things to keep
them and care for thenm. Co
lumbia, which is undoubtedly
one of our most beautiful cities,
owes more to her trees than any
other one thing.
The country, where one
would logically look for the best
in trees and shade, is singularly
disappointing in this way.
Who has not traveled along a
country road on a hot day and
wished for a shady spot to rest
in? And yet few country roads
have any trees along them.
They would not merely be orna
mental, they would be a great
blessing to stock as well as to
those who are forced to drive in
what is now the broiling sun.
Naturally for the remedy of
an evil of this kind we look to
the schools. Many new fea
tures have been lately intro
duced every dav, among them
being this very idea of caring
for trees. When the value both
from an aesthetic and a utilitar
ian point of view has been fully
impressed upon the children we
shall without doubt have shaded
county roads as well as city
Ninety years ago today (Apr.
26th) the Inidependant Order of
Odd Fellows was first organized
in America by Thomas J. Wiley.
Mr. Wiley was from England
and prior to his coming to Amer
ica he was perfectly familiar
with the workings of the order,
but in his nation they were
known as Odd Fellows. On ar
riving in America he tried to
int~ ro duce the order and organize
l *s of t he samie.
P~.e oi t that timie were in'
travel then was not as conven
ient as it is now. Some of the
people of America made up the
money (Thos. J. Wiley vas a
poor man) and sent him back
to England where he tried to
get the Odd Fellows of that na
tion to recognize an order of the
same in America. Upon their
refusing to do so Thomas J.
Wiley came back to America
and organized an order known
as the Independant Odd Fel
lows, Washington lodge No. 1
at Baltimore, April 26, 1819, the
mission of which was then, and
is yet, to bury the dead, nurse
the sick, care for the orphans
and the widows, and relieve the
Their foundation is the Bible
and if a man is a true Odd Fel
low and lives directly up to every
procept that is required of him,
he will live a christain life.
While we do not wish to be
understood to mean that every
man in the order is a christain,
for such is not the case even in
churches, but we do say, if he
lives up to the requirements of
the order, he is compelled to
lead a religious life. It was in
honor of the 90th anniversary
that the lodge of that fraternal
order met in the hall at Catee
chee on last S-turdav night (the
24 instant) and celebrated the
occasion by serving cake and
ice cream to about 200 people.
The doors of the hall were
thrown wide open and every
body on the hill given a cordial
welcome. After every guest
had fully satisfied his appetite
and thirst there were cake, ice
cream and lemonade enough
left to serve at least 25 or 30
more people. Everything pass
ed off without a single jot or
tittle to mar the occasion save
the disappointment of many
who expected to hear a speech
from that orator Hon Julius K
Boggs, who was deterred from
being present on account of un
avoidable circumstances. How
ever, the audience was not mi
nus a speech as Mr. G. F. Nor
ris Secretary of the Norris Mills,
was called on and responded
with a speech suitable for the
It was wholly unexpect
to Mr. Norris as he, like every
one else, was expecting to hear
a speech from Mr. Boggs, but
Mr. Norris is never caught nap
ping on nothing and he had
both eyes wide open on this od
casion and gave the people
e nething spicy.
Mr. J. B. Leopard was next
called on and as every body who
knows Jess knows what a talk
er he is, but right here we want
to say that it is a pity that the
devil got hold of Jess before the
Lord did for he would have
made one of the greatest prom'
ulgators of the gospel that ever
faced a pulpit. If he had been
educated he would have been a
natural born orator. Mr. Leo
pard has only been in the order
4 years but he seems to be as
well informed on the workings
of the order as if he had been a
life long member. It is worth
driving several miles to hear
Mr. Leopard make a speech on
the benefits of the Odd Fellows.
The next speaker was the Noble
Grand, Mr. W. D. Brown, and
Mr. Lee Dickson who is also one
of the brethren and both of
whom made good speeches. Af
ter this Mr. Boaty, boss weaver
of the Norris Mills, closed with
