The programme waa a humorous
parody on the Psalm of Life, read

tiful old love song, "Ever of Thee
I Ara Fondly Dreaming," sung as a

and in there was a snow-white well,

water was th" best drink that God
bad given to man.
When the guests had returned to
the parlor, the W. C. T. U. pre
sented to Miss Peak a beautiful
white-ribbon how of gold, set with
pearls; and to Mrs. Fannie Tomp
kins and Miss Florence Mims other
bows of less pretentious design were
presented very happily by Mrs. W.
B. Cogburn for the union.
At the close of this presentation,
Miss Miriam Norris sang that beau
tiful selection, in which occurs this
"This tiny knot of ribbon,
Sweet sign of inward grace,
Means all that God and woman
Can do for the human race.
Then wear it with pride, dear women,
Morning and noon and night;
Glad to show wherever you go,
You're standing for God and right"
The decorations were golden rod
and asparagus, and a banner with
the word "Victory." which thehoet
ess could not refrain from using
in view of the great joy in the heart
of all the white ribbon army over
the result of the prohibition election
in our fair Palmetto State.

THE NEXT BEST THING TO THE
PINE FORREST FOR COLDS IS
Dr. Bell's Pine-Tar-Honey which
goes to the very root of cold
troubles. It clears the throat and
gives relief from that clogged and
stuffed feeling. The pines have
ever been the friend of man in driv
ing away colds. Moreover, the
pine-honey qualities are peculiarly
effective in fighting children's colds.
Remember that a cold broken at
the start greatly removes the possi
bility of complications. 25c.-1
