cnsioh for'celebration as Christmas,
there ha v? spruug up sundry, forms of
diversion for the dny in keeping with
its significance, yet by no means of a

will .enter,.into the pleasure, there will
be an Easter tree. It can be of any
kind, and" ticed not be taller than a

number,of; dark green balls formed of
several -leaf-shaped sections. Thes?
are nih together at the top by a bright
bit of baby ribbon, the ends of which
hang down,loosely. There should be as
many bulbs and floating streamers as
there are persons to receive gifts.
The bulbs cad be nude of any soft,
green 'material.' the softer the better,
as it lends Itself more readily to the
purpose of protection, which is the sur

The Calhoun, monument commission
held another meeting last,week'and
heard suggestions from Capt. William
A. Courtney and'Dr. Henry,A. White
as to the statue to be erected at a
cost of $10,000. No definite, action
was taken, however, and 'another
meeting will probably be held, this
time at Clemson College, .when several
of the residents of that section who
were acquainted with Mr: Colhoun
and could- perhaps offer some valu
able suggestions will be consulted.
Among these are ' Col. Robert A.
Thompson and Maj. Aaron Boggs,
who knew the great statesman. In
this way the commission will be able
to decide the many little points and
traits necessaiy to know before thc
statue can be made.

.Columbia, Special.-Attorney Gen
eral Lyon has given Dispensary Audi
tor West an important opinion re
garding the use of request books in
county dispensaries. The opinion
answers a query submitted by Mr.
West some time ago and shows clearly
that while countv boards may object
to the use of' these books on tue
ground that it intereferes with busi
ness during a rush, it is the duty of
the board to see that the, law is car
ried out and if not it is the duty of
the dispensary auditor to report cadi
violation of the law.
