Barbecue at Colliers in Honor
The most joyous occasion ever held
at Colliers was the ibarbecue given
last Saturday by the people of the
Colliers section in honor of the young
white men who entered the army
and navy from that community and
adjoining communities. The writer
regrets extremely his inability to at
tend, having received several invita
tions from kind friends.
In. order to have everything per
taining to the dinner arranged and
conducted in the best manner pos
sible, the celebrated chef, Mr. A. A.
Edmunds, better known as Gus Ed
munds, was sent for and he had a
large part in seasoning and cooking
the hash and meats for the feast.
A special table, tastefully decorated
with flags and the national colors,
was arranged for the soldiers who
answered their country's call: George,
Eugene and James Miller, Robert
and Frank Adams, Lewis, Wallace,
Joe and Earl Hamond, Dr. Earris
Mathis, Jr., Harry Culbreath, Key
Holmes, J. E. Atkinson, Jr., Preston
and William Lanham.
While the boys were partaking of
the best of everything that the
Colliers pantries and affectionate
Colliers mothers could provide, the
other folk present were gathered
about a long public table, where
enough dinner was spread to satisfy
the appetites of twice the number
A pleasing feature of the day was
a game of ball in the morning and .
afternoon between the Colliers and
Plum Branch teams. Each of them
won a game and soon they will have ;
a contest at Plum Branch to break
The people of Colliers are proud j
of the record their soldier boys made
and are grateful for their services ?
and sacrifices and decided upon the
barbecue as a day of pleasure and
enjoyment for these splendid young
fellows, 16 in number, and their rel
atives and friends.
Very Small Rooms.
The ready-made, knocked-down
houses are growing in popularity.
They are said to be cheap and eco
nomical in construction, and one
reason they are cheaper than the or
dinary house is on account of their ,
squall rooms. Our people will have
to get accustomed to smaller rooms.
The old 20x20 and 18x18, or even
16x16, rooms are things of the past. .
Modern houses have rooms 10x10
and 10x12, with seldom anything
larga* than 14x16* Wide halls have
gone forever. Smaller rooms mean j
cheaper houses, and that is wTiat most
builders are looking for.

Its true efforts to unite the farm

move with great possibiltiies. Do
