More Schools to Combine. .'
The wide-awake patrons of school '
districts 42 and 44 have filed a strong
petition with the county board for
consolidation. The three schools of
these two districts will he combined 1
into one good strong central school. \
The site has been donated and sev
eral hundred dollars pledged. With :
a combination like this these good
people will be able to establish one ;
of the very best rural high schools
In the county and thus be able to
employ strong teachers and give
their children the very best educa- i
tional advantages. The school days
of our children are swiftly passing 1
and we should be thoughtful and co- 1
operate in every way possible to give
our children the very best school to ?
attend. We trust that more of our <
good people will soon catch the spirit ]
of combination and its advantages,
and that, soon many of our weak i
schools will give away to stronger \
and better ones.
Corn Club and Tomato Club.
As stated before the Boys' Corn
?Club will be reorganized Saturday, ;
March 4 th, at 11 o'clock a. m. Mr. 1
Xh Is. Baiter will talk to the boys and
tell them where to get the very best
seed corn. Preparations are also
being made to organize the Giris'
Tomato Club at an early date. Sev
eral girl? have already sent in their
names to become members of the
club and others are being sent in by 1
teachers along with the boys names
for the corn club. Annie Horley of i
Julia Academy was the first girl to
send in her name to join the Tomato
Club in our county. A long list of
prizes will be announced soon to en
courage our boys and girls in these
lines of agricultural development.
Let each teacher try and send in one
or more names for these clubs at
Barn and Contents Burn.
A barn on the place of Mr. T. R.
McCants, who lives a few miles
from this city in the Four Holes sec
tion, was destroyed by fire about one
o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. There
was stored in the barn twenty-eight
bales of cotton, which was saved in
a damaged condition, and two hun
dred bushels of corn, some of which
may be saved. When discovered the
fire had made considerable headway,
and its origin is a mystery. We hope
Mr. McCants was protected by insur

Congressman Lever, who did a \
great deal of hard work for the
measure in Congress, has been com
pelled, on account of the press of
the busines during the closing week
of- congress, to decline an invitation
to be present on Wednesday night in
Boston at a dinner to be given by
Frank W. Rollins to those who have

BOLEN OIL MILL BURNED.
Fire Occurred About Two O'clock
About two o'clock Tuesday morn
ing the Bolen Oil Mill, located at
Bolen In the Fprk, was totally de
stroyed by fire. In addition to the
machinery of the mill, about twenty
five tons of cotton seed and cotton
seed meal, a quantity of oil that was
on hand, and the buildings, were en
tirely consumed, and will be a total
loss. Very little, if anything, was
saved, the fire having made great
progress when discovered.
*The ginnery, which was located
some little distance from the oil mill,
was not burned. Just how and when
the fire started is a mystery. When
first discovered it had made much
headway and had enveloped the en
tire building. It may have been
caused by spontaneous combustion,
or by rats and matches, which causes
more fires than many have the least
The mill has been in operation
some five, or more years, and was
capitalized when chartered tin the
sum of $10,000. It he.s done a good
business and was in a prosperous
condition. -Since it was organizea
the capital stock was increased and
more machinery added to the plant,
which was complete and up-to-date
in all respects. The value of the
plant was about twenty thousand
The insurance, which was carried
in the agencies of Messrs. Ziegler &
Dibble, Izlar & Salley and W. K.
Sease, amounted to some $12,000.
This amount will not begin to cover
the losses, when they are all figured
up carefully. Mr. W, L. Hughes was
manager of the plant, which had
been idle some days before tne fire
occurred. The fire is a hard blow to
the company, but we hope it will
soon be on its feet again.
RETURNS TO THE CIRCUS.
After Visiting Her People Martha
Cain Goes Back.
Martha Cain, after . a pleasant
visit to her home and people, has
returned to her work with the cir
cus people, with whom she has a con
tract for some time. It will be re
membered that she was stolen on
the streets of Orangeburg thirty years
ago, when she was five years old,
and it was by accident that she
learned her real name. Her circus
name is Lizzie Lewis, but Martha
has no special hankering after that
The Robinson circus is wintering
in Cincinnati, but those connected
with it are rehearsing in Springfield,
Mo., and it is there that ;he has
gone. Martha Cain says she intends
to follow the circus as long as she
is able. "What else can I do?" she
asked in reply to a question as to
whether she intended to be a circus
woman as long as she lives. That Is
very true. Having been brought up
to that life, she knows no other. Be
sides it pays her well. 1
The Columbia correspondent of
the Charleston Post says it is inter
esting to note that the management
of the Robinson shows are respectors j
of the wishes of Southern audiences
in one respect. When she wing In ' i
the South 'Martha Cain is a side-1;
show performer, but when showing |
in the North and West she is a mem- j
ber of the big show. Her specialty Is ! i
aerial performances, and she is said ;
to be a fine actress. The Robinsons i
are very much attached to her.
States the Case Plainly.
The Memphis Commercial-Appeal
sounds this note of warning to the <
farmers: "Supply and den.and will ;
control the price of cotton or an> .
other commodity. The crop of 1910 ,
is some larger than was at one time ]
expected and the result of this is evi- ]
denced by the decline in price. Tex- j
as has recently had good rain, giv
ing ample moisture to start their ?
crops. The high price of cotton will
stimulate planting. The South can <
not buy corn, hogs, meat end mules i
at high prices and pay its bills* with i
low-price cotton. Consider rhis care- j
fully. Be sure to plan your crops so
as to grow ample corn and hogs. Give i
some attention to live stock. By this :
method you will reduce your cotton
acreage and will bring about thrift

Lent is Now Here
Yesterday was Ash Wednesday,
which ushered In the Lenten season.
The day was generally observed in !
the Catholic, Episcopal and Lutheran
churches, especially In the first
named, where palm leaves ushes was
blessed and the foreheads of tne 1
faithful marked with the sign of the
cross in reminding^ the people of im
mortality. In the several churches
the period of forty days to Easter
Sunday is supposed to be generally
observed in special prayei\ fasting
and the practice of acts ot self de
nial. All amusements are laid aside
until the Lenten season is over.
Selecting Fresh Eggs.
If you wish to select a fresh egg
for your table or a sound egg for
setting there is an easy way for so
doing. Take the egg in a dark room
and place It between your eye and a
lamp flame, holding It perpendicu
larly. If it Is fresh it will be full
and clear except the shadow cast by
the yolk, and if the shadow cast is
quite dark you may know that the
hen which laid the egg has been fed
to a considerable extent upon grass.
Will Erect a Monument.
Mrs. M. V. 'Moore of Alabama, bet
ter known as Betsy Hamilton, cap- '?.
tivated a good sized audience Mon-'
day night at the court house. Her
lecture was both instructive ann
amusing, and greatly dulighted all j
that heard it. Mrs. Moore lecturea
for the benefit of the two local chap
ters of the Daughters of the Ameri
can Revolution. It is the intention
of the local chapters to erect a mon
ument in this city in the near future.
PUT ON TBE BAN
THE SAIE OF HAPPY DUST IS
RESTRICTED BY LAW.
Cocaine, in All its Forms, Con Only
be Sold on Physicians' Prescrip
A statute strictly regulating the
sale of cocaine in all its dangerous
forms, has been enacted by the gen
eral assembly, and signed by Gov
ernor Blease. If the act is rigidly
enforced as soon as it becomes ef
fective, which is twenty daya afte:
the date of signature, It Is probable
that the use of "happy dust" will be
prevented to a much greater extent
than now in this state.
The law provides a penalty of im
prisonment in the state penitentiary
of not less than one nor more than
five years for any person who sells,
gives away or otherwise dispenses
cocaine, or alpha or beta eucaine, ex
cept on the original prescription ot
a licensed physician, to he used un
der the personal supervision of this
The sale of cocaine and other forms
of the drug by licensed manufactur
ing chemists or pharmacists, and
wholesale and retail druggists to oth
er businesses or to hospitals, col
leges, scientific, or public institu
tions or to licensed physicians, vet
erinary surgeons or dentists, is al
lowed under the law, as also is the
use of the drug by these licensed
The same penalty is fixed for per
sons in whose possession the drug is
found, with the intention of dispens
ing it and the law further states that
possession is to be considered prima
facie evidence of intention to dis
pense, unless possession Is bad un
der the prescription of the licensed
physician provided for.
Other minor restrictions are
thrown around the stile of the drug
under the prescription of physicians,
the violation of which Is punishable
by a fine of $20 to $100. This is
a good law and it should be enforced.
An effort ought to be made to stamp
out its use in this town and county.
Its use is a great curse, and is re
sponsible for many of the horrid
crimes we read of.
Important Announcement to Prospec

Passes to Her Reward.
After' a long and eventful life,
stretching out over about ninety-one
years, Mrs. Harriet Robinson, relict
of the late D. W. Robinson, has pass
ed to her reward in the beautiful
home on high, where she joins many
loved ones who had preceded her to
the better land. Mrs. Rboinson
passed away at the home of her
neice, Mrs. J. L. Wannamaker, with
whom she had made her home for
several years. Mrs. Robinson was the
oldest resident of Oraugeburg, where
she resided nearly her whole life.
She was an excellent lady, and In
the days of her strength did all she
could to relieve the distressed and
needy, in sickness or in health. She
was for many years a member of St.
Paul iMethodist Church, and exempli
fied in her noble life the tenets of
the holy religion she professed.

head out of the window.

two cents and your father gave you

"Seven," said Johnnie again, and

"I am surprised at you, Johnnie,"
said the teacher. "How on earth

WHY I BUY AT HOME.
Some Reasons Given That Are Simply
Many people who make their living
out of a town sends off to New York (
Chicago, or some other big Northern
or Western city any buy many of the
things they could buy at home. In a
recent issue of the Tradesman a far
mer gave some mighty good advice
on this subject, which all of us
should heed. This farmer gives the
following reasons for buying his
goods in his home market:
Because my interests are here.
Because the community that is
good enough for me to live in is good
enough for me to buy in.
Because I believe in transacting
business with my friends.
Because I want to see. the goods.
'Because I want to get what I buy
when I pay for It.
Because my home dealer "carries''
me when I am run short.
Because every dollar I spend at
home stays at home and helps work
for the welfare of the city.
Because the man I buy from
.tandsi back of the goods.
Because I sell what I produce here
Because the man I buy from pays
his part of the town, county and city
Because the man I buy from gives
value received always.
Because the man I buy from helps
support my school, my church, my
lodge, my home.

The Happiest Children.
The happiest children are those
who have happy mothers. The young
wife which grows up in the shadow
of a discontented, repining and
gloomy mother is like a plant unwa
tered by kindly dews. It is apt to
be dwarfed and stunted. Even when
things are crooked and temptations
to be harsh come, let the mother
for her child's sake, try to be happy.
She can show happiness even It she
docs not feel it, and the joy and
pleasure she causes in her children
will reflect in her own soul.
