educationally, for the entire county.
The men of York have promised to
forego cr waive their rights under the
two-quarts-a-mc nth law for the month
of June in order to slake the thirst of
the newspaper men when they meet.

osene has remained practically the;
same. They forget that gasoline is j
burned seven days and seven nights in
the week, while kerosene is consumed
only a portion of seven nights. Th*
young joy-riders are burning gasoline
out on the highway at night, when j
they should be reading by a kerosene
lamp, if they haven't electricity.
Newspapers seem to vie with each
other in the matter of reporting the
latest and fullest news from Mexico.
At first the report came thai. Villa had
been wounded in the leg. This was
followed by a statement that his limb
had been amputated. Probably the
next will state that his missing leg has
been restored. The Advertiser is of
the opinion that the Mexican bandit
will be reported dead as many times as
a cat has lives before his light is final
ly snuffed out.
Parcel Post pf Great 3enefit.
For a long while the express compa
nies were merciless in their charges,
but since the parcel post law has been
in operation we have heard practically
nothing of exorbitant express rates.
The announcement that the Adams
Express Company has taken over the
Southern Express Company, the latter
company operating in practically all of
the southern States, carries r,o terror
to the people now. Even though one
company should control the entire ex
press business of the country, the par
cel post wouid Tore.- ii to fix reasona
ble rates. Government ownership nf
the railroads, tele; horn s and telegraph j
companies, is a big question, one that ?
should not be considered lightly, yet if j
the interests of the people could be
served as well through government
ownership ol' these lines of business as j
they have through th? parcel post j
there is good reason for the govern-I
ment taking over these properties.

In the Carolina spring time
Soft the breezes blow and sweet,
Swetrt the breath of blooming Howers
Each gay broidered natal sheet,
And the South v. ind whispers faintly
To the song bird in the glen.
Whispers of a place to build a
House, in bracken or in feu.
Surnir.tr brings to Carolina,
Fuli borr. c!a>s of warmth and light
Sun-light (.avering with motion
Days of Splendor-splendid night
And the languid air is drowsy - .
Bees and birds and flowers are still
Yet no time of all the seasons
Is so fraught with rare delight,
As the summer with its pleasures,
With iii? joys, by day and night.
Balmy days old autumn gives her,
Glorious nays with blossoms bright,
Yellow golden rori, and asters,
Crimson, brown and even white.
Yellow aie the ripening corn sheaves, j
Garnered into bursting barns,
Scattered cn the ground are bright:
Gorgeous in their autumn dress,
Celt! .;:id scarlet, brown and purple
As the wine from royal press.
Can.lina in the winter
Hath lier best and brightest days,
Dav :; when come from northern monr.- '
Birds wtyeh enrol soft sweet lays.
Coin?s the hoar frost-come the snow '
From their misty mountain home;
But the South's bare shoulder shakes
Ai:d the cold days lightly pass,
Barely touching with their ringers
Carolina's flowers and gra<s.
So the seasons bless our South land,
Land of plenty, land of song.
And the beanied mosses hanging
From the old oaks, gray and long,
And the cypress in .the Bayou,
And the pine tree known to song,
Each its fruitage gives in largess,
Makes for rich and stately dower
For the South, and Carolina,
Blessed by week, by day, by hour.
And we pledge thee Carolina,
In a goblet oki and fine,
Goblet filled from nature's bosom
And 'tis better far than wine,
Comes from rock-ribbed, gold washed
Plashes on. a streamlet clear,
Turning mills and dashing onward,
Comes a drink without a peer.
So we toast thee, Carolina
In this cup made doubly sweet,
Since your voters pledged their fealty,
Your woman's cause to meet.
