. OUR BOYS.
In every heart a paean swells
A thrill of pride and glory,
For Edgefield's boys on foreign
Mid battle's din and foray.
In olden days old Ninety Six
Gave men both young and hoary
This time, we sent our boys away
To fill our land with glory.
On France's fiercest battle ground,
In Flanders or Picardy,
These boys have all filled ranks
That they are brave and hardy.
Of loyal stock, each valiant one
Sailed forth to meet the foeman,
Leaving at home to fill his place
A noble Red Cross woman,
Knowing full well, his cause was
His part 'gainst Germans pressing,
Her part to staunch the blood to
bind the wounds
And offer prayerful blessing;
Their hearts are leal, in woe or
Their names adorn a story
That adds a page to Edgefield's
And covers her with glory.
Each mother's son, each noble one
Whom Edgefield gives the Ages,
Will make a name of dauntless
Well writ on hist'ry's page?.
Neath Thierry's walls white lillies
And lifted lordly petals
Neath Thierry's walls the armies
The Lillies lost to battles;
Yet crimson from the battlefeld,
These lillies lifted loyal
Red faces to the morning su?
Rising so strong and royal
So did our boys from battle's din
Lift loyal hearts though gory.
To meet the coming of that son
Which shines for Freedom's Glory.
Oh, mothers of these noble sons
Lift up your eyes, tear dimmed,
Beyond the far flung battle line,
And see there, limned
Against the foe in stern array
Your sons in armor clad
War proof against the foeman's
Begirt with ropes ef Mother's
Hope walks beside then? ever,
And Faith who guides their feet
E'en dow? te Death's dark river.
Unfurl your Service Flag for them
Fling stars upon its white shield,
Add to each star the loyal name
Of one more son <>f Edgefield
So shall we honor these our boyi,
Who offered on War's altar
The gift of all in life held dear,
With never fear nor falter;
And since these gold stars find a
Upon that flag's white glory.
May they but add another page
To Edgefield's blood bought story.

REPARTEE THAT HAD STING
Barber Made Some Little Mistake
When He Started to "Kid" the
Youngster in Khaki.
It was all the barber's fault He
had no business kidding the young
boy. Goodness knows, the man in uni
form never said anything to the bar
ber before. This was the way lt was:
The young soldier was a frequent
visitor at the burlier shop on the ave
nue. He didn't have so much of a
beard, but yet lt demanded shaving
once in a while. The barber had no
ticed that the boy only cume in on
So he said : "Say, son, how's It come
you step in here only on Saturday
nights? Don't you need a shnvo often
er; can't you got leave, or won't you
poy union prices?"
The boy blushed. "I get the leave
all right, and Uncle Sam pays me
about as often as any boss barber, but
you see, I shave myself once a week,
and let you -shave me once a week,
"So you're Just on semi-friendly
terms-with the safety, eh?" urged the
"Oh. I wouldn't nay that," replied
the soldier. "You sec, I have two girls
in this town. One I see every Wed
nesday. Then I shave myself. The
other I see every Saturday. Then I
pay you the fifteen cents. Mary like?
the jtnov^e soldier type, clean-cut,
clean-shaven, handsome fellow. I see
her on Wednesdays. Ruth thinks she
cares for the bloody, ^cratched-up son
of battle. I we her on Saturdays.
"Maybe," laughed the barber, as he
sharpened his never-ready razor.
"You'll glvo Mnry my regards to
"Mary!" said tho soldier. "Mary!

going to see Mary! Nope. I see Ruth

bo queried anxiously.
"Nope; they're never through."
"You've said It, Bo. You see, I kind

The British transport to Buku and
bark again ls .said to have been largely
accomplished by donkeys, writes Nor
man Hapgood in Leslie's. In Mesopo
tamia the donkey does nearly every
thing. Ile delivers the drinking water
to the houses of Bagdad. He trans
ports vegetables, fruit, marble, brick
for ordinary life. In war he carries
the soldier, his kit, and the donkey's
own meal of barley. Where did the
donkey ever acquire the reputation of
being stupid? He is amiable, indus
trious, sure footed. It was on a donkey
that Mahomet went to heaven to learn
the will of God. The Savior on Palm
Sunday entered Jerusalem on a don
key. The Utile animal's history Is dis
tinguished, as his character is strong
and his intellect sound. That the writ
