Picnic Given by Jeffcoat School.
A picnic which approached very
near the ideal was given last Satur
day by the Jeffcoat school which is
located about three miles slightly
to the northeast of Johnston. It was
the writeis. pleasure to attend and
mingle with the good people of this
God-favored section. As farm work
in this community is well advanced,
the plow and hoes were laid aside
and everybody came together for a
day of pleasure and relaxation. A
spirit of kindly hospitality and good
fellowship seem to pervade the at
mosphere, making everyone glad
that they had ?urned their faces to
Jeffcoat for the day.
This school has been ably taught
for the past three years by Miss
Maggie Shaffer, an S. C. C. I
graduate who made many friends in
Edgefield while a student here.
About a year ago the patrons of the
school decided to move the school
to a more central looa:ion and in
stead of moving the old building
they erected a new one that is mod
ern in every particular-of comely
design, roomy, well lighted, well
ventilated and beautifully painted.
But one thing is lacking and that is
the improvement of the grounds.
Trees and attractive shrubbery can
not be grown in a day or year, so
these will come in due season.
About the elevenih hour vehicles
of every name and description came
upon the scene from all directions j
and almost all distances, as auto-1
mobiles now render miles but a few
steps in length. As the people gath-j
ered informal groups were formed ?
here and there, some discussing poli- j
tics, others crops, others automo- j
biles, others fashions and others |
(groups of two) in low tones dis-1
cussed momentous 'natters which
Cupid will help to solve. And all j
the while the hospitable hosts were j
dispensing ice-cold lemonade by the j
bucketfuls. It was as free as thc
songs of the birds in tin; trees above

Early after dinner the crowd was
rounded up and the medals which
Miss Shaffer offered early in the ses
sion were presented byMr.J.L Minis.
A gold medal was offered for the
best record made in spelling and
the record at the close of the ses
sion showed that Charlie Clark, the
little son of Mr. Cleveland Clark,
and little Miss Pearl Railton, a
daughter of Mr. Charlie Railton,
had tie 1 for this honor, so the teach
er presented each one of them with
a gold medal. A second medal, one
for the best average in all studies,
was offered, and ibis honor was won
by Miss Pearl Railton also.
After the medals were awarded
Mr. George Scott presented Hon.
J. Wm. Thurmond who made a
short, practical address on educa
tion, making some timely sugges
tions and offering some wise counsel
to the people who were assembled.
Mr. Joseph Cox, a candidate for the
Rolicitorship of this circuit, was
called upon, but declined to speak
at length aa no other aspirant for
the same o rhee was present.
Thus ended a very pleasant day
for the several hun ".reu people wno
assembled at Jeffcoat Saturday and
all left hoping that another such an

Centre Spring School Gave Pic
Saturday was a very pleasant day
for the fair young teacher, the pu
pils and patrons of the Centre
Spring school. The Centre Spring
school closed Friday and all, togeth

of pleasure under the shade of
trees. Pearly in the forenoon the
people gathered and soon iced lemon

slaking the thirst of the children
and the grown-ups. After their ar
rival the children, with the aid of
their beloved teacher, were soon
making merry on the pavilion by
engaging in games that are popular
with children and young people. As
the older picnickers watched the
sportive little folk they engaged in
delightful conversation, the occasion

the splendid feast that was spread
was equal in variety and theexcellent

In addition to the usual picnic menu,
barbecue hash fit for a king was
served in abundance. The editor of
The Advertiser regretted that an
other engagement prevented his ac

Statement of Interest From
County Game Warden.
At the 191G session of the Legis
lature this county wis included un
der th? provisions of the Resident
Hu itel 's License Law. This law re
quires all hunters to procure a li
cense in order to hunt. The cost
of Resident hunting licenses is
81.00 for the county license, which
entitles the holder to hunt in ac
cordant- with the laws anywhere
within the county, buc is not good
for hunting outside of this county,
or any other county in South Caro
The law further provides that
landlords, tenants, and their chil
dren are not required to have li
cense whilst hunting upon their
own freeholds or leaseholds and
handholds may give written per
mission to a resident of his county
to hunt upon his land, in which
event the written permission is .a
substitute for the county license;
the said written permission must
be carried by the hunter and ex
hibited to the Game Waiden or any
officer upon demand. This written
permission cannot be given to any
one residing outside of this county.
The hobler of a license is not re
quired to have any written permit
from the land owner and is at liber
ty to hunt upon any ?ands where
there is no objection from the land
owner. The license, however, does
not give the holder the right to
trespass in any manner.
These licenses can be obtained
s ?on from any Magistrate, Clerk of
Court or I rom me.

Backache is Discouraging.
But Not so Bad if You Knew
How'to Reach the Cause.
Nothing more discouraging than
a constant backache. Lame when
! you awaken, pains pierce you when
you bend or lift li's hard to work
orto rest. Backache often indicates
bad kidneys. Edgefiold people rec
ommend Doan's kidney pills. Read
Mrs. K P Jackson. Cedar Row,
Ridgefield, says: "I suffered greatly
from a weak and lame back, which
became so bad that I could hardly
get around. My sides and hips also
got sore and lame and loss of sleep
made me weak and exhausted.
Doan's kidney pills rid me of the
attack." (Statement (given April
12, 1011.) Over tlm-c- year? later,
Mrs. Jackson said : 'My back or
kidreys seldom trouble me now, bm
when they do. Doan's kidney pills
always give me relief."

My Dear Mr. Minis:
As we have just returned f
Anderson, the electric city, wi
we have been enjoying an enca
ment from the 24th to the 20t
thought I would give you a
items of news concerning our
carapraent over there.
We left here early Monday mi
ing 29th and marched to Cherr
crossing, with our accouterme
where we took the train. Aft?
few minutes of riding on the I
ridge we were rejoiced to find <
salves in the hospicable city of
derson. In a few minutes a;
leaving the train, we found (
selves on the camping grou
which was situated on Greenv
street in the northern part of to'
and one mile from the court hoi
A more ideal place coal 1 not h
been selected for our camp groot
In a few minutes after reaching
new quarters we had our tents
ranged, and were prepared foi
week of pleasure as well as insti
tion. We were there dismissed
the remainder of the day. In
afternoon we witnessed a ball ga
between the Clemson "Tigers" :
Wofford, and much to our reg
the "Tigers" got licked.
After the game the cadets
turned to the camp for retreat,
was agreeably surprised when C
Jones excused them all from
treat. They then made a rush
town in search of girls which tl
soon succeeded in finding. 1
Clemson boys certainly gave
Anderson boys a vacation this we

that they would have lo take a

try, about one mile from can
where we began different maneuv
which we kept up every ni om i
for the remainder of the week. \
were on these drills every morni
from eight o'clock till about elev
or twelve. They seemed a lit
tiresome at first, but they were
structive in the long run. Af
the drills each morning the cad
were dismissed until retreat, a
from them until "taps."
Tuesday evening the cadets <
joyed a big open air dance, and
ter the dance delicious refre?
ments were served. The few cad
that were unable to dance did i
by any means miss a nice time, 1
there were plenty of pretty gi
just on the outside awaiting to t?
to them. After the dance many
the cadets accompanied the girls
their various homes then burri
back to camp for '"laps."
On Wednesday and Thursd
mornings the program was abc
the same. Wednesday afterno
the corps gave the town a |
rade. Thursday morning a gloc
was thrown over the entire carn
when the news came that Col. II:
den had died at the college. E
death, however, was not. unexpect
for he had been very feeble throuy
ont the entire winter. He has be
officially connected with the colic
from the beginning. Before rel
ing from active service, he was pi
lessor emeritus of chemistry at tl
place. Ho will be missed at chaj
services by both the faculty ;?i
the student body. He always :
tended the chapel services unless 1
was confined to his bed.

would prevent the whole fortnatioi
At eight o'clock, however^ the rai
had ceased and we were going oi
for the last one of our maneuvei

ternoon we gave thc people of ti
town another parade, this one bein
held on the athletic he'd. Quite

In the evening the hospitable la
dies of the town gave us our las
but but not least, (for they were al
best) dance. This was also an opel
air dance, and was largely attendee
and enjoyed by the cadets.
Saturday morning we broke cami
and prepared for the much regret
ted return. Aller we had goiter
our accouterments together, anti
the lents lakeii down and folded
up, wc stacked arms. Col. Jone?
then dismissed us until :*:50 in tbt
afternoon. We cadets then made a
dash for town, when we could see
and say our farewell words to the
girls whom we hated so bad, so
very bad, to leave. We were back
at the camp at the 3:50 and began
our march to the train about ten
minutes later. As we marched
back through town, the streets
were thronged with girls who were
' waving and shouting their farewell
words to the heav,> hearted Clem
son corps. While waiting a few
minutes at the train we gave the
town a few farewell yells. In a
i few minutes we were aboard the old
! Blue Ridge train and bound for dear
old Clemson again.
The encampment this year was
? more successful than the one last
. year. The weather was ideal for
out-door life this year. The health
? of the entire corps was excel
