really wonderful teacher for the
young, and the fact that she will no
longer be connected with the school
rot only is a regret to the patrons
and trustees, but many a little heart
will be sad in September, not to be
greeted by her sweet, kindly face
or to have her as a teacher. The
splendid foundation of many of our
graduates is due to the instruction
of Mrs. Huiet.
The last meering of the \V. C.
T. V., was held in the home of
Mrs. W. J. Hatcher, and was of
the nature of a patriotic meeting.
This organization is primarily a
patriotic one, its motto, 'For God,
and Home and Native Land," voic
es its dominating purpose, and for
40 years or more has worked to
protect the homes of the land from
the enemy within its border, and at
this great crisis the unions are ready
to render any service possible.
The meeting opening with "My
Country 'tis of Thee," Miss Zena
Payne presiding, and after roll call
and minutes by Mrs. Olin Eidson,
and repoitof the financial condition
of the union by the treasury, Mrs.
J. W. Marsh, the reports of super
intendents were heard.
Mrs. Herbert Eidson, supt., of
Flower Mission, will be given funds
to purchase bulbs for winter use,
when flowers were not obtainable.
It was suggested that each mem
ber who made jelly or canned fruit,
that a mold be set aside for "W. C.
T. U., use," and this winter a sick
friend would appreciate,this just as
much as a flower.
Mrs. Albert Lott made a. splen
did report of "Soldiers and Sailors,"
letters being read in thanks for the
comfort bags sent off. Mrs. Lott
made a very appealing talk concern
ing soldier boys, and Mrs. J. L.
Smith at this point offered a touch
ing prayer that God would prepare
the hearts of every boy not a Chris
tian as he goes forth, perhaps to
The union decided to do some
thing especial for the boye of Johns
ton who have bein called out, and a
committee has been appointed to
decide upon this, each mother hav
ing already provided her boy with
a comfort bag.
The rautor ambulance for the
battle front of France was discuss
ed, and every one was glad to know
that this had already been purchas
ed. The union was glad to give
$5.00 to this purpose.
The State Convention at Aiken
was discussed as well as the Nation
Mrs. O. D. Black had charge of
the program, the subject bearing
slong lines of patriotic service, and
splendid papers were read by Mes
dames Marsh and Hatcher.
Each member was asked to take
part in an open discussion of what
one could do along patriotic lines as
a W. C. T. LT., and this proved
most helpful and interesting. The
book plan as suggested by one was
good. Some members could not
make comfort bags, so it was sug
gested that such give a good book,
to be sent to the soldier boys at
Columbia. The patriotic hospital
ity of the Columbia ladies was told
by Mrs. L. C. Latimer. Her cous
in, Miss Annie Bonham, had just
visited her aud had said that on
Sundays her home was open to
three or four of the soldiers and
they were to look upon it as home.
In this way good work can be done,
and influences exerted. Many of
the ladies are having them to come
to their homes for dinner and thus
cheer the boys.
The meeting closed with a beauti
ful prayer by Mrs. W. J. Hatcher.
"Onward, Christian Soldiers'* was
sung and the benediction pronounc
All of the Johnston ladies have
done well toward conserving fruits
and vegetables, and there are many
well filled pantries and storerooms.
So far, Mrs. John Marsh has the
greatest number cans of produce,

Pat walked into the postoffice.
After getting into the telephone
box he called a wrong number. As
there was no such number the
switch-attendant did not answer
bim. Pat shouted again, but re
ceived no answer.
The lady of the postoffice opened
the door and told him to shout a
little louder, which he did, but still
Again she said he would require
to speak louder.
Pat got angry at this and turning
to the lady said:,

louder I wouldn't use your bloorain'

DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE
It appears from new* which leak
ed out of Germany, in spite of the
unusually close censorship, that the
German officials are telling: their
men and women that the American
troops will cut little figure in the
big war. If the German people
Knew what they were up agaii st

The funniest part of it is that
they claim that Americans can't
think quick enough What a joke!
That'd our ruputation-o.uiuk to
think. The Germans will find
that out soon enough. In the mean
time, we at home should get ready
for the big drive.
Of course we all can't go the front
bri ive can do our bit in just as im*
portant a manner right here at
home. Let us keep fit to carry on
the industries of the nation, till the
soil, work the mines, and keep the
ammunition flowing to the front in
a steady stream.
Backaches must be gotten rid of;
those stomach disorders such as in
digestion, constipation, etc., must
be eliminated; weak, anaemic bodies
must be made strong and vigorous;
weak kidneys and bladder must te
strengthened; in other words we
must keep fit!
Acid Iron Mineral will keep you
fit. It is not a patent medicine. It
is a pure, natural iron preparation
obtained from the only natural
medicinal iron mineral deposit of

aids digestion, increases weight,
creates appetite, strengthens dor
mant muscles, brings a healthy
color to the skin, and builds up the

Aside from the harleouin snake
of Florida there are only three
species of poisonous snakes in the
United States. These are the
rattlesnake, widely d i s t r i b u t ed,
easily identified and most dangerous
of them all; the copperhead of
mountains and rocky places, and
the mocasin of the Southern swamps,
which extends no further north
than Southern Ohio and Wilming
ton, N. C.
When it is established that one
of these has inflicted a wound the
first action should be to tie a hand
kerchief or cord or rope about the
bitten member between the incision
and the heart. This should be
knotted tight, with the object of
preventing the blood from carrying
the poison into the general system.
Then as quickly as possible the
mouth of the bitten person or a
companion should be applied to the
wound, which ?bould be vigorously
st.eked, that the poison may be
drawn out. This sucking must be
done by someone whose mouth is
in perfect condition, however. An
abrasion or crack of the lips, a bro
ken fever blister, will give the poi
son another access to the blood.
The incisions should be cut that
that they may be made to bleed
freely and the sucking continued.
This is the most important thing
that can be done to save the life.
The popular idea that the admin
istration of large quantities of whis
key counteracts the poison is entire
ly in error. Such treatment, the
experts say, makes death much
more probable. Largequanti
ties only throw additional burdens
on the heart when life depends
upon its efficiency. Whiskey has
probably killed more snake-bitten
peopie Chan it has ever saved. Bet
ter leave it alone than take too much.
