Union Meeting at Mt. Zion.
"George Swearingen" Road
Fine. New Automobiles
We attended the Union meeting
Sunday at Mt. Zion, although the
day wa9 very gloomy and rain was
threatening with an occasional
sprinkle. With east wind, we made
the trip of about 14 or 15 miles
without getting wet. The pretty
new church was pretty well filled,
and we had a fine sermon in the
morning from Dr. J. T. Littlejohn,
after which au hour for dinner.
Every one enjoyed the splendid re
past, also the social chats and meet
ing those we did not already know.
The time soon came for the after
noon sermon which we enjoyed
very much, by Mr. Joe Gaines, pas
tor of Ebenezer. Should we be
ashamed to say it? No, for we do
love little babies so. that the dear
little babf of Mr. and Mrs. Gaines
drew our attention more than the
sermon for awhile.
We traveled over a part of the
noted "George Sweariugen" road
and it was fine. We wish we had
some of Mr. George Swearingen's
over on the old Martintown road
that would be public spirited enough
and get a move on all those who
travel it, to work. Clay the sand
and sand tho clay, grade the
hills and straighten the many crooks
and corners, so this would be anoth

lots more travel. As it is, the wea

Townes well enough to go to Au

Sorry to bear Mr. Will Briggs'
little daughter is having the chills
again. Hope she will soon be out.
We are sorry that Mrs. Luta

let her come home all right again.

News From the Edgefield
Last week, Mr. Lyon received a
letter from Mr. Swearingen, and in
the letter was some work for the
American History classes to do.
Some of the questions were: Find
the No. of enrolled voters from 21
to 29 years of age and the No. of
these voters making their mark in
Edgefield county? The same ques
tions were asked for those from 30
to 39, from 40 to 49, from 50 to 59,
and from 60 on up. The work was
done by the pupils, and out of 439
voters between 21 and 29, 20 could
not write their names. There were
273 above 60 and 44 of those made
their mark. We found that the
percentage of white illiteracy among
Democratic voters in Edgefield
county, as shown by the 1916 rolls
was 11.4. This shows what a large
amount of ignorance we have right
at our door, but it also proves that
the young people of today are tak
ing more interest and getting a bet
ter education than those of yester

Mrs. Quarles was a great sufferer for

she suffered, she bore ?tallas becometh

children and a host of friends to mourn

the dog^off his sister and was bitten
in the face by the dog. This brave
little girl deserves a Carnagie medal.
