County Democratic Convention.
The county Democratic conven
tion met Monday with lOOfdelegates
present, all ot' the ._'<? clubs being
tully represented. The convention
was formally organized by the elec
tion of B. E. Nicholson as presi
dent and J. I.. M ?ms and S. .T. Wat
son secretaries. Resolutions were
adopted endorsing S. T. Carter,
State treasurer, and .1. E. Swearin
gen, State sun* rintendent ol' educa
tion, ami .commending them for
their faithfulness as servants of the
people. The following delegates
were elected to the State conven
tion: B. E. Nicholson, J. A. Lott,
J. Iv. Allen, ii. K. Tillman, B. I),
kvitchings and J. P. DeLaughter.

The lencrtli of tl)?- supervisor's
term of office, whether two or four
years, was generally discussed and
the sentiment of the convention was
strongly in favor of making the
term four years. Supervisor A. A.
Edmunds was present and gave his
reasons for contending for four i
years, reading letters from the at- i
tornej general [riving the law bear
ing upon the matter. While no
definite action was taken by the I
convention relative to placing this i
office in the primary il is practical- <
ly certain that there will be no elec
tion for enanty supervisor until i
1916. Mr. Edmunds will hold the ?
office for two more years. In this
connection it is but [?roper to state i
that tlo- law lixfs the term of office
for iii?- county commissioners the
same as that for supervisor, their
tenn then being four years ,n this i
Thc convention was altogether ?
harmonious, [inmediately after the ; ?

I have many strong friends. I am
thankful tu say. but never had a
truer, more constant, more faithful
one than poor Tee Jennings, after
ward Mrs. Wates. I'nor child al
ways frail, it seems fate had de
creed that her life should be one o?'
service, one of trial, and affliction,
but its all ovei now, and instead of
mourning we should be rejoicing.
lier life was short, but fragrant,
fragrant in deeds of devotion, in |
deeds of love, and sunshine. And
because we shall see her frail form
ii) more upon the earth. I beg to lay
this poor tribute upon the mound,
so to speak, that holds all that ie

The "Skule" at Red Hill.
Prof. Obediah Th ree wi tts and his
twenty-odd scholars went out to
j Red Hill and gave the "Deestrick
j Skule" Monday night. The occasion
j was a complete success. The at ten d

much larger had not a threatening
oloud appeared just at the time many
I from a distance were about to leave
I home The play was well presented
and was well received by the good
I people of Red Hill. The sum of
's$55.:J.o cents was received at the
door, which, after fr>.8d was paid
; for the expense of arranging the
; hall, was divided equally between

They partook of a delightful picnic

What Others Say
Arresting editors for libel is one of
the late styles of campaigning in South
Carolina. Greenwood Index.
Will be Foithcoming.
Our guess is that the next time we
demand a salute from anybody the sa
lute will be forthcoming without any
quibbling. - Anderson Mail.
You Have Heard Same.
Some public discourses are like a
level plain. Turn your eyes any way
and the scene is the same, just one
monotonous stretch, one broad ex
panse, each part like the other parts.
So with many discourses. Nothing
stands out prominent, nothing arrests
the attention. - SpartanburgJournal.
What People Make lt.
The rural church will be what the
rural people who compose the church
make it. The church will meet its op
portunity as the members maet their
obligations as Christian men and wo
men. The church in the country is and
always will be what country people
make it.-Farm and Ranch.
Should Work Both Ways.
lt is time for some of the newspa
pers to be entering suits against poli
ticians for libel. We might as well
make the thii.g interesting while we
are about it. Tact is, newspaper men
have been abused by office-seekers long
enough anyway. - Bamberg Herald.
Use Commou Sense.
Do exercise some common sense in
visiting the sick. Never enter the sick
chamber unless your presence is help
ful and desirable. Many persons have
been much worried when sick In
curious visitors.-Spartanburg Jour
Remedy for "Blues."
If you are beset with a bad case of
"the lilues," get out and away from ;
your cares. Ride a mortorcycle one
hour and if you do not get killed, you ?
will certainly be cured. Take a walk,
a run. a horseback ride--do anything
save grind on. You will lind the change
most helpful. If all these things fail |
to help, take--a dose of calomel.
For Whom to Vote?
We cannot tell you: would not if we
could; but we do not know just the in
dividuals to point out and say: "Vote 1
for these." It would be too personal,
too pointed and altogether too impo
lite? But we do sr .: "Vote for com
petent men; vote for honest men; vote
for independent, seii-reliant men; vote
for clean men, high-minded men; vote
for such men, no matter whether it be
your personal friend or your personal j
foe. A citizen should be big enough
and broad enough and wise enough to 1
choose the man best qualified, no matter '
whether it be friend or foe -Union
