IN BONDS OF COMRADESHIP
Strong Unity Inevitable Among Those
Who Battled the Savage Hun
? Side by Side.
Two men were hobbling along the
Strand, London, the other day. Both
depended upon stout ash sticks to help
them on- their way. They were com
ing from, opposite directions, and when
they drew level, although neither had
seen the' other' before, they involun
tarily^ nodded and grinned and ex
changed a "Cheerio."
You can witness similar incidents on
any of London's boulevards, writes
"Young Sub." The great unofficial
Brotherhood of the Hobble hastio rule
beyond that of camaraderie; the only
qualification for membership is the
possession of a hobble caused by mili
"I am convinced that everyone will
realize the vital Importance of con

ship which has enabled us to win the
war," says Sir Douglas Haig. There
are associations and clubs and federa
tions of all sorts whose objects are to
bind together the men who have
served their country. But the biggest
of all ls the one that has no organizing
secretary, no central offices and no
propaganda. It simply exists in the
hearts of the men who have suffered

HAIL "PUNKIN," KING OF PIES
Who That Has Ever Tasted the Real
Article Can Forget the Thrill
of the First Mouthful?
Ton can't spell punkin pie with an
"ra" and a "p." Pumpkin pie is the
kind one gets In restaurants, flavored
with cloves and allspice. "Punkin" pi&
has cinnamon and ginger in it, and
sometimes a hint of an unmention
able beady fluid about which one
would not dare ask mother. And of
all the smacking, ambrosial delicacies
?italogued under the genus "pie" the
best is .punkin."
: One grows hungry, at the thought of
"punkin" pie-the crisp, crinkly ernst;
the thick, rich, pungent filling, with the
dust of cinnamon tarnishing Its tawny
top; the creamy, dreamy, velvety, far
away taste ns one's mouth closes on
its prize. Some appetizing joys there
are, but none that exceeds capturing
a piece of "punkin" pie, getting it into
one's hands, contrary to all social
usage, biting into It until one almost
mires up to one's uose, until one can
scarce see over the top of the upstand
ing crust, and beginning the unequaled
delight of devouring the first mouth
ful. To tas? it is to love it. Love
but it, and love forever.-Milwaukee
The Vicar's Slip.
An exceedingly amiable widow came
to live at Little Rudcomb. The vicar,
a bachelor, regarded her with fear and
trembling; she was so very obvious
ly after him- He cured her, though,
one day by making a fortunate slip.
The dear lady met him iu the village,
and stopped him.
She talked of this, that, and tTie oth
er, and at last worked up to the point
where she could talk about herself.
"It ls very lonely for me now," she
said. "I have always been used to
having a man about the house, and I
can't get hsod to the quietness."
She turned and gazed away to the
distant hills, while her underlip trem
The vicar muttered the strongest
word In his vocabulary, and then said
"Oh, don't worry, my dear Indy
don't Worry ! You know the wind is
always tempered to the lorn shani."
Lest You Don't Know.
We have been informed on good au
thority that a dental parlor is also a
drawing room and sitting room. When
the. people fill the room the dentist fills
their teeth. He fills their teeth wirb
gold and they fill his hand with sil
ver. They grind their teeth with fear
and anxiety. He grinds their teeth
with a burr and an emery wheel. They
shriek for assistance and he calls for
assistants. He gives 'em gas and then
charges 'em for it. They ask him to
give them credit fo? the work he does
himself. He calls the teeth hollow
when it's the owner of them who does
the hollowing. And so on, ad infinitum.
More may be said, but we shall save
it for another tim?.-Indianapolis Star.
Horrors of Chinese Outlawry.
The city of Anlu, on the Han river,
was the scene of a horrible outrage
by a few disbanded Chinese sol
diers on January 2, according to the
Central China Post. The hills north
of the town have been Infested with
these brigands for some time. A mer
chant of Anlu set out to collect some
bills, was captured on the main road
to Chlnsan and held for ransom. When
the money demanded failed to arrive,
the outlaws bound their victim, cov
ered him with straw and, sotting It
afire, burned the man alive. The po
lice and a few soldiers were sent to
the scene, but the murderers had es

Tires "are so important a part of
the equipment of an automobile, that
the experienced motorist does not
care to lose his money or his temper
making experiments. He buys tires
that have proved their worth after
years of testing, leaving it to others
to shoulder the expense of trying out
the novelties that come and go.
It is in this fact that the United
States Tire Company finds the .ex
planation for its steadily mounting
sales among those who want good
Present day efficiency demands
that the automobile owner keep a
careful account of all his costs and
that he know the exact performance
of each tire. It is among this class of
buyers that the United States Tire
Company finds its best customers.
Many large corporations, which have
reduced their tire buying to a science
and place their orders where they get
the most service for the money, use
UNITED STATES tires exclusively.

New McCormick Binders
The grain crop will be good in Edgefield county and a
j number of farmers will have to buy a binder or lose
some of their grain. Labor is scarce and it will be im
possible to harvest much grain with a cradle. Better
place your order at once for a binder.
The demand will be great, and doubtless some who
want binders will be unable to get them. The supply
is limited, a? our allotment for this territory is only six
machines, and unless orders are soon placed for these
we will lose them. They will be transferred to some
other territory where the demand is greater? We can
sell you the New McCormick Binder, which is a light
