The latest "get up" from the Old
Maids' Convention was a farewell
shower given to the bride-to-be, Miss
Myrtle Davis, by the Misses Verner,
at the "Haven of Old Maids' Rest,"
Coneross, on Saturday afternoon last.
This hospitable and roomy old coun
try home was becomingly arranged
for this all-important event At 2.30
the few remaining old maids, some of
the young matrons and several of the
sixteen-year-old maids (called in to
make a quorum) gathered in, and the
performance began. As the roll was
called it was plainly seen that out of
a score of original members all had
crossed the great divide (matrimony)
except as many as could be cunted on
the fingers of one hand. Surely
Cupid ls blind and deaf, too, or some
of those remaining would have been
taken long ago. Each guest was
asked to write a sentence of advice
to the bride-to-be, and If all this ad
vice is carried into execution the
groom will be a very "mixed up"
man In the days to come. A parcel
post contest was engaged in to see
who could tell the most artic?is that
could not be delivered by parcel post.
The bride-to-be won the prize. After
this contest the guests repaired to
the dining room and enjoyed a deli
cious salad course, after which Misses
Lynn Verner and Laura Smithson, as
parcel post deliverers, entered fa
tigued and out of breath from bear
ing their heavy burden of packages
through post and they showered
them upon the bride-to-be. Fortu
nately no bones were broken, but the
bride-to-be suffered some slight in
juries and will hardly be herself
again, though she will be some one
else soon. / The many useful, dainty
and artistic remembrances spoke vol
umes as to the popularity of this
member of this quaint old convention.
A goodly number were present and
the evening shadows were dwindling
into twilight as the associtaion ad

Pellagra in thc United States.
There were from thirty to fifty
thousand cases of pellagra in the
United States within the last six
years, with a death rate of about 39
per cent. These figures constitute
only a rough estimate of the number
of cases, owing to the defective ma
chinery for securing vital statistics
In this country.
Lavlnder, of the United States pub
lic health service, has gathered fig
ures on the prevalence and distribu
tion of pellagra In the United States.
Figures have been secured from State
authorities, from public Institutions
and from private sources. A map
shows that pellagra has been report
ed from every State in the Union ex
cept New Hampshire in the East, and
a group of Western and Northwestern j
j States comprising Idaho, Minnesota,
Montana, the two Dakotas, Utah, Wy- j
oming and Nevada. The greatest
prevalence ls found In the group usu
ally spoken of as the Southern States. I
In only one State ls the disease re
portable by law. Pellt gra cannot be
compared In prevalence with such a
disease as typhoid fever, for exam
ple, yet the large number of cases
and the high mortality rate, together
with Its wide and apparently Increas
ing distribution, make it a disease of
national importance, and afford an
additional reason why every State
Dot already giving adequate vital sta
tistics laws should at once enact such
!&w*. The md which accurate figures
and facts concerning this important
disease would give in the solution of
the problem of pellagra, says the
Journal of the American Medical As
sociation should alone be sufficient to
demand the enactment of such laws
in the coming Legislature of every
State not now within the registration
Mole's Kick Worth $3,800.
Enid, Oklu., Jan. 30.-A kick on

CAROLINA BOY STILL LEADS, j
No One Has Vet Topped Jerry
Moore's 228-Bushcl Record.
For raising 135.14 bushels of corn
last summer on an acre plot, the I
largest yield ever produced by a Min
nesota boy or man and believed to be '
the largest yield In the Northwest, |
Arthur Hoese, a 16-year-old boy of j
Mayer, Carver county, last week was
awarded the title of State champion .
corn grower by the agricultural ex- '
tension division of tho university I
farm. With this reputation went a
scholarship valued at $200 and put
up by a Minneapolis newspaper,
which entitles the winner to a year's j
tuition, board and room at the Col- j
lege of Agriculture In St. Anthony
Myron F. Wallace, of Zimmerman,
Sherburn? county, finished second
with a yield of 130.8 bushels for the
acre. Miss Florence Stegner, who
lives near Sauk Center, Stearns coun
ty, by raising 97.5 bushels on her
acre, established her right to the title
of champion woman corn grower of
Minnesota. Doth she and tho State
champion, Arthur Hoese, procured
their seed corn through the agricul

Jerry Moore's South Carolina rec
ord of 228% bushels for one acre ls
The State-wide contest for boys
and girls, in which 1,200 started last
spring and 600 submitted their nnal
reports last fall, demonstrated that
tho farmers of Minnesota can more
than double their corn yields by ad
opting the methods which these
young contestants have followed, at
very little more cost than the average
farmer puts Into his crop. Not one
of tho 600 reports submitted men
tioned a loss on the investment, after
including the labor and all other
items of expense. The profits ranged
from a few dollars up to $60, which
Hoese obtained by selling part of his
yield for seed corn at $2 per bushel.

Perpetual Vigilance ls Uie Price It
Takes to Get Good Ones.
Editor Keowee Courier: In a pre
vious -article the writer called atten
tion to the importance of better
roads. Now it will be my object to
offer a few suggestions, in the hope
that general improvement may be
reached and result in a more econom
For years lt has been the custom
of the Supervisors, once a year, to
run over the roads with a scrape,
with four mu loa attached, taking the
roads as they come, working where
not needed the same as where need
ed. The road scrape ls a most ex
cellent tool, but it should not be used
indiscriminately. There are places
where its use ls harmful, and it is
used only to make a beautiful land
scape and to correspond all alor g, at
the expense of utility, thus 'having an
eye single to beauty-to please the
fools. Few have learned the lesson
taught by the poet
"Beauty is but skin deep,
Ugly ls to the bone;
Beauty may fade away,
But ugly holds its own."
. Th<> wayfaring man wanta a road
that w'.ll hold Its own and not lose its
foundation every time It ral us. The
Supervisor md his sat?lites should
look beneath the exterior of a road
as well as that ot an lndiv'uual,
otherwise they may be deceived as to
Water and boys should not be al
lowed to collect without proper safe
guards. One who has spent more
than six years on the road, in all '
kinds of weather, would be regarded
as stupid if he did not learn some
thing by experience and observation,
and if a patriot he wishes others to
benefit by it.
Let those In power employ a relia
ble man to go over a certain beat as
often as necessary with a cotton hoe
and remove the rubbish from side
ditches that empty on the road side;
empty the cups that form in the road.
In six hours the writer has known a
cup that could be drained by a thirs
ty ox to develop into a hole large
enough to bury the ox in. This shows
that a much-traveled road demands
constant oversight. Any enterprise
that is visited once or twice a year
will bankrupt the county. Perpetual
vigilance ls no less the price of lib
erty than It ls of good roads. More
