D. A. R. Will Entertain With
Views of Tillaloy.
On Thursday evening in the Opera
House, the D. A. R. will give some
pictures of Tillaloy, the French vil
lage being reconstructed by the Na
tional organization Daughters Amer
ican Revolution. In connection with
the pictures, Rev. A. L. Gunter will
explain the scenes, and Miss Annie
Clisby will give the story of Tillaloy.
Miss Clisby is a graduate of the Le
land Powers School of the Spoken
Word in Boston, and has given great
pleasure to the local chapter D. A.
R. by her gifts in reading. Besides
this there will be other features dur
ing the evening.
Tillaloy is a small village in Pic
ardy, one of thc most fertile portions
of France. In 1914 this province was
occupied by the Gemans down to
Campeigne. Then came the Battle of
the Marne and the Germans were
driven back twenty miles beyond Til
laloy. Later, they forced the French
as far as Roye and the surrounding
towns. The French had made a stand
and established themselves in a park
of a chateau of Tillaloy. The Ger
mans made their line 300 yards be
yond that and for two years heavy
fighting continued and the Germans
never ceased to attack the French po
sitions with artillery.
In 1917 in the great German re
treat, all this was evacuated. The
French built roads and railroads but
could do nothing for the villages. Til
laloy was destroyed except two
houses. These two houses are now be
ig put in order and portable houses
for the other inhabitants have been
furnished during this winter. Enough
money has been furnished for them
to live on this winter and their crops
are being planted. Brick is being
made in the village and reconstruct
ion work is beginning now in ear
nest. A record is being kept in Tilla
loy of all who helped, and should any
one go there who had done so, they
will see their name recorded.
Tillaloy was a village of 600 in
habitants and 60 miles north of Paris,
in an old province of France across
the channel from England.
Picardy is a beautiful country, ad
mired by artists, and in this historic
province Charlemagne was crowned.
Come and see for yourself.
The money made will go for the
placing of a bronze tablet on our
Court House bearing the names of all
our heroes who died in .the World
Victory Loan Contests.
A German helmet has been given
to Mrs. Lovick. Mims, county chair
man of the National Woman's Liber
ty Loan Committee, to be used in
some way to furthar the interest of
the campaign. Mrs. Minis has decided
to award this helmet as a prize for
the window display best calculated
to arouse enthusiasm and increase
the sale of bonds. All the business
firms of Edgefield, Trenton and John
ston have been asked to enter the
contests, and all have cordially a
greed to do so.
The windows will remain decorat

a committee representing the entire
county will carefully inspect the win

I can wait a week or two if that

I am at a Red Cross tent to-night
and am having the Red Cross Captain
write this on his* typewriter for me.
I am going to make this place my
loafing place while Fm here. And so
thought that I would have the Red
Cross man write the letter so you
would know how to plan for the
crops. I want to be home irr time to
do the biggest end of the work on the
crops. So you can look for me to get
there just as soon as I can.
I am getting along fine and am
well. I hope that you are all well too.
I send my love and hope to see you all
soon. As soon as I land in America I
will let you know either by letter or
telegram that I have gotten back.
You need not write until you hear
from me again. Good-bye.
Your loving son,
John E Agner.
