Many disadvantages arise from
being located at tbe end'of ^rail
road track instead of bei tig on
trunk line, but, on tbe other hand,
there are some advantages. Just as
the wealthy northern people are
coming south in their palace cars
to escape the rigors of the winter,,
so are the-great army of "Weary
Willies" tramping their way to
the sunny south, or are making
the journey by stealing" rides OL

The "ready pistol'1 problem ii
yet uneolved. Laws that have
abated the evil to some extent
have from time to time been en
acted, but no means have yet been
found that would prevent the
carrying of jin unlawful gun. In
this connection, a unique resolu
tion introduced at a recent meet
ing of the Beech Island Farmers'
slub by a prominent member of j
this very oil organization is
worthy of notice. The resolution,
which may be presented to the
?ext legislature, provides that the
owner of every gun be iax^d $5
per year and pistol owners .$10
per year, which mouey is to
?sed in equipping the Echcols
with military paraphernalia. If
all of the shooting irons, guns and
pistols of every description what
ever, were taxed-andwould that
Bvery pistol could be taxed out of
existence-sufficient money would
be raised to equip every school
with a first-class aresoal.
