Dear Comrades: Once again we
are called to meet in annual reunion.
This year our reunion will be in
Louisv'lle, Ky., on June 14, 15 and 16.
The prospects are bright for one of
the largest and most inspiring reun
ions ever held. Let me urge your
camp to send a full delegation. Let
us make this the banner year for
South Carolina camps.
When our faithful adjutant general
in chief calls the roll let him be able
to say, "South Carolina carmps have
paid in full." The dues are very small.
Five cents per capita for state dues
should be sent at once to J. M. Jordan
chief of staff. Greeryille, S. C., and ten
cents per capita for general headquar
ters should be sent to Gen. William E.
Mickle, No. 824 Cannon street, New
Orleans, La. These amounts are
now due and should certainly be paid
not later than June i.
The place and date of the state re
union will be named later.

"I remember," said an old naval of
ficer, "hearing of an incident on
board of a ship which was command.
ed by a religious captain who would
not allow the mate to use profane
language or violence toward the crew
and where the work and discipline
were carried on more by moral sua
sion than by force, with the result
that things wvent very slowly. The
men did no: jump to the braces or
ropes and the general work of the
ship was slow.
"WVhile at anchor one day in the
harbor of Rio two of the sailors, lean-.
ing over the rail, were watching the
work going on on board of another
ship anchored close to them, where
the opposite system prevailed. The
air on that ship was lurid with the
language of the mate, and the men
were treated with a violence that was
far from necessary, but the wvork~
went on quickly. The sails were
furled and the yards braced in a
smart and seamanlike manner. As
they listened to the suiphurous orders
of the mate one of the sailors on the
good ship remark sententiously to the
"Bill. d'ye see now what it is we

News Wouldn't Wait.
One of the big ocean liners was be
ing made fast to her pier the other
afternoon. Impatient friends on the
pier were signaling and shouting bits
of news to equally impatent friends
on deck, says the New York Sun.
Among the announcements was this,
hurled from the lips of a small girl
in a very large velvet hat:
"Oh, mamma, we've had the great
est time this morning-"
Something-perhaps the restrain
ing -gesture of the long suffering gov
erness-made the mother, who leaned
against the deck railing, raise her
hand in warning to her daughter.
"Never mind, dear," she shouted
back, "tell me later!"
But the little girl was not to be
suppressed. She formed a mega
phone with her small gloved hand
and fairly shrieked:
"I can't wait! The cat had four kit
tens this morning. and James says
he's going to drown 'em. Can't we
telephone him to save 'em till you get
The embarrassed mother nodded
a feeble assent and the small airl
darted toward the public telephone
"My dear, I have a great compli
ment for you,." said the Boston man
to his Nvw York niece, who was pay
ing a 'nonth's visit and attending
many serious entertainments.
"A compliment?" and the pretty
eyebrows were raised incredulously.
"Yes," said her uncle, cordially.
"Prof. \Mildew said he noticed you
particularly at the reception Monday
afternoon, and he thought you had a
m.s:: intelligent face."
"There. aunty," said the frivolous
young person, turning reproachful
eyes on her re!ative, "I told you I
looked like a perfect frump in that
brown dress, but you said I'didn't!
You see what he thought, don't you?

Her Unconscious Loyalty.
A lawyer making a specialty of di

a woman desirous of bringing action
against her husband for separation.
The lady related a harrowing story
of her ill-treatment at the hands of
her better half. Indeed, the lawyer
was so impressed by her recital of
woes that for a moment he was start

directed and if it fails to ful

Also Cheapest to Use.
Our 25 cent box contains
100 feeds for 12 fowls. Our
$1.00 size box contains 400
feeds for 12 fowls. You can
not afford to pay 25 cents per
box for some other kinds that
only contain 25 feeds. 100
feeds for 25 cents is certainly
very much cheaper than 25
feeds for 25 cents. We save
you 75 feeds over other kinds.

The great increase in pro
duction of eggs has given
"International Poultry Food"
a wonderful reputation all over
every State. We guarantee
that it cannot be fed to hens
at any time, winter or sum
mer, without showing a large
increase in eggs. You do not
have to use the food at an
extra expense because it will
make you more money after
deducting its cost. One extra
egg per month will pay the
entire cost of feeding it and
often more than doubles the
supply. It contains no poison
ous or injurious ingredients
and has very superior merits.
