The little pocket, you plainly see,
For a special purpose is meant to

Now measure your waist line, inch

For each small inch you measure

In tho pocket put a penny sound.

You "waist" your money-WK

While the money your pockets so

DELIGHTFUL PLAY IS "SAND."

I The following notice of the play,

j "Sand." an attractive four-act
I comedy, written by Miss Rebecca
I Dial, daughter of Senator Nat B.
Dial, of Laurens, was presented hy a

atre on Feb. .'1, 4 and 6. On Th
day night the play was given, com
plimentary to tho Legislature. This
play Is a contribution to the move
ment that ls being waged against Il
literacy In South Carolina. Thc au
, thor had a real motivo In writing
' this play, for she wished to bring he

-THRIFT
Thats Up-to-Date.
WHAT is Thrift any way? It is
not thc hoarding of money. It is not less
buying and less selling. It does not mean
that you should tighten your purse strings
forever. You should not close your purse
and refuse to buy such merchandise that
you would make your conditions better.
The Thrifty Man will not allow
his house or barn to rot down for need of
roofing; nor will he allow his farm to wash
away for thc want of good Implements.
Good Tools and good Farm Imple
ments are very assential to good living.

it,
essential qualities of genuine sympa
thy and understanding. The elements
Of tragedy and comedy are happily |
blended.
The family consists of the mother,
and father, neither of whom at be
ginning of the play, could read or
write. Mrs. Anderson, even though
advanced in years, bends all her en
orgies "io learn to read." The sol
dier boy, who has Just returned from
tho war, where he received his first
lessons, yearns with his whole heart
and soul for a chance. He wonders
if, through "Sand," his goal can be
reached. And the youngest member
of the family, a small urchin named
Jimmie, n most natural boy, makes
the family circle complete.
Tho value of an education is not
only brought out from an education
al standpoint, but also from a social.
When Miss Hary first enters the
home, there is an air of untidiness
and mismanagement. Old Man An
derson could not be persuaded to
work, but when Miss Gary returns
five years later he was glad to help
bis "old woman" bring in the stove
wood. And five years later, what a
different, atmosphere is found In this
home. Where disorder prevailed now
ls found tidiness and good order.
What an attractive dining room, and
what a cheery, homey sitting room,
where any one would like to remain.
Around tho whole place there is an i
air of thrift and comfort.
Romance, too, has its place in the
play. The love plot and tho vlllian
scheme aro skilfully interwoven.
Miss Clary, who is the apex of the tri
angle, finds the solution. When the
curtain falls it loaves us with the
Nippy thought that pioneer strongth,
.ended with the refinements of edu
cation so long denied, are most con
structive towards the building of a
strong race.
"Sand" to Ik) in Walhalla.
This charming little play will he
presented In Walhalla on Friday of
next week, Feb. 18th. Keep this fact
in mind and don't fall to soo and
bear lt, for, if wc mny Judge by the
above comments, lt ls well worth an
