Congress is getting down to practical

In normal times some people object
to beet sugar, demanding of their

rather opine that many erstwhile fas

glad to get beet sugar for their Christ

it is no longer a question of what you
prefer but what you can get.
The class in piano at the Graded
School will nive a recital under the
direction of Miss Miriam Norris, on
Wednesday afternoon the 19th.
The recital is ojien to the public
and will be participated in by only
thegirlsof thegraded school,the High
School recital coming later. There
will also be a chorus by the girls of
the music classs. The presence of
parents and friends of the clash and
the school will add greatly to the
interest of the recital and inspire
the class with more enthusiasm for
"A Tribute of Love".
Rehoboth community was shocked
to hear of the tragic and deplorable
death of little Sallie, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Cul breath,
which occurred Tuesday evening of
last week, Dec. 4th.
Bright and happy the children
were playing in the hall, a loaded
shot-gun which was in corner fell
and discharged, the load entering
The little farm was laid to rest
in Rehoboth Cemetery Wednesday
We deeply sympathize with the
family in this sad bereavement.
S?llie was a bright little sunbeam
and loved to attend Sunday School.
Though not quite six years old, of
ten asked her mother questions of
God and Heaven, of Angels and
An Angel plucked the beautiful
little wee-bud, ere it was blighted
by the chilling winds of sin, suffer
ing and sorrows of this life.
Her little place is vacant, the
little voice is still yet, how consoling.
"There is no death, an Angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread;
He bears our best loved ones away;
And then we call them "dead".
He leaves our hearts all desolate;
He plucks our fairest sweetest flowers,
Transplanted into bless, they now
Adorn immortal bower.
Where, e'er he sees a smile too bright
- Or heart-too pure for taint and vice,
He bears it to that is world of light,
To dwell in Parade."

A mischievous soldier said Com
panions, look at th| Southern party
with a basKet containing half a
watermelon. Don't it make yon
wish you were away down/South in
Dixie?" They then, in chorus, sang
the song, while my chaperone re
moved what was supposed to be a
half water-melon, but proved to be
my green and red bathing cap. I
never heard such an uproar of
laughter. She then passed them the
borne made sandwiches which they
said they enjoyed more than any
thing since leaving the South.
Another day in the Camp. A
number of soldiers were seated
around a companion who had his
clothes on atable. With brush and
.water he scrubbed them vigorously
saying "Boys, it was fun to tea?o
that class mate who thonght himself
so much smarter tuan us, but failed
on his final examinations, for when
we were studying literature he was
studying bow to win that girl".
"When we received our diploma,
he received her. Now, we are hav
ing the hardships of military pre
paration. He is honored witn home
pleasures as he has more binding
obligations than to volunteer. "We
thought him a fool". They theu
sang in chorus.
"Tbere're a lot of things you
never learn at school. There's a lot
of things that never go by rule.
There's a lot of knowledge you
never get at college. There's a lot
of things you never learn at school."
One said"And it shows that woman
is superior to man. All the private
men in the United States could not
have placed him in a position not to
be expected to volunteer". Another
challenged him for a debate saying,
"Why there are not any great
women inventors equal to Bell who
gave to the world the telephone"
The other replied, "Tell a woman
the message, and it will reach its
distillation in due time and will be
heard by many more than over the
telephone, and we would never
have heard of Bell had it
not been for a woman.
He conceived the idea of the tele
phone, as he was a teacher of mutes,
and was discussing his misfortune
in not having the means to experi
ment with it when a millionaire
with a deaf and dumb daughter
offered the means and he became her
tutor. She falling in love with him,
induced her father to continue
furnishing bira the means after he
had lost faith in it. She married
Bell receiving for her bridal present
the patent for the Bell telephone.
Why he is indebted to a deaf and
dumb woman for his success in that
invention. Tell me of any great and
noble thing accomplished by man
beyond the limit. There is always
a woman in it.
Another joke. The operator of
the phone being called away, left it
in charge of a friend, saying, "If
Mr. A. cajls for Bell, tell him he
has gone ' to service". She mis
understanding, said "He has gone
to night". The answer, "I hope he
will get religion enough to pay up
his telephone bill.
I will mention another joke, al
though it is on myself. I described
the old bachelor at the Clove some
time aftei we had enjoyed his lecture.
One of the young men staying at
the boarding house with us, humor
ous and witty, connected with the
New York World paid the old
bachelor a visit. After his return,
said he had enquired about the
Southern lady with affable manners
and her companion who was so
pleasingly plump. Thus we derived
the nick names of "Affable Manners"
and "Pleasingly Plump", while at
(CONCLUDED NEXT WEEK).
CANT DENY IT.
If This Had Happened Elsewhere
Instead of Edgefield You
Might Doubt lt.
The average man is a doubter.
This is not surprising-the public
have been humbugged so frequently
they are skeptical. Proof like the
following will stand investigation.
It cannot be disputed.
W. B. Paul, painter and paper
hanger, Butler St., Edgefield, Bays:
"I was bothered by kidney trouble
nearly all my life. It grew worse
after an attack of measles. Doan's
Kidney Pills removed the pains
and strengthened and regulated my
kidneys. My health became bett?r
than it had been in many years."
Over Three Years Later Mr.
Paul said: "I have very little
trouble with my kidneys now.
When I am bothered slightly that
way, however, Doan's Kidney Pills
never fail to relieve me."
Price GOc, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy
get Doan's Kidney Pills-the same
that Mr. Paul has twice publicly
recommended. Foster-Milburn Co.,

DID HELP HER WONDER
BEFORE SHE Too*.; TANLAC, SHE
SAYS SHE NEVER DIU FEEL
"Tanlac is the best medicine I
have even taken, and I certainly
have taken a lot of medicine," said
Mrs. J. C. Walker, of 30 Hender
son St., Anderson, in a statement
she gave May 23rd. "Tanlac cer
tainly did help me wonderfully. I
took it for a generally run down
condition, for I was always so weak
and tired and I never did feel well.
I really felt completely broken
down, and in the mornings I felt as
badly as when I went to bed, for I
did not sleep well. I had no appe
tite and I scarcely had strength
enough to do my wo?k.
4jBut the Tanlac did me more
good than any other medicine I
have taken. It soon had me feel
ing strong, I pot so I could sleep
well and ray appetite came back
and I began to feel so tine. The
Tanlac did a iot to build up and
strengthen my entire system "
