oversees hor own gardening and the
work of tho farm within a small
radius of the Brandt home, doing
herself not a small portion of the
actual garden work, ls ono of the
best "farmerettes" we know of. We
have been trying quietly for several
years to excel her in some small par
ticular, but wo frankly admit that
each year she manages to beat us at
our own game. The beauty of the
thing, however, is that wo always
gol a sample Of something from our
"model garden" over tho way-a
very consoling feature of tho unequal
game. Thanks!

-It will ge learned with deep re
gret, by many in Oconee that Charles
Bryd, of the American Expedition
ary Forces, is among those who have
made the supreme sacrifice.for free
dom of tho nations of the earth. Mr.
Byrd was about 21 or 22 years of

Seneca. The young man volunteered
tor service early, going into service
about the time of the declaration ol
war by the United States. He was 8
member of a machine gun' pompan)
