Greenville voted out the dispensary
on Tuesday.by a very large majority.
It seems now to be a matter of course
that when an election is ordered in a
county'on the dispensary that the re
sult is fixed from the beginning and
very few people take any interest in it.
We congratulate our neighbor,
Prosperity, on the handsome ne'
school 1building which 'has jus*t been
comple,ted. It would do credit to a
muth larger city. It is a substantial
building and 'well appointed for the
uses for which it is designated. It is
one of the best investments the peo
ple of this community ever made. It
will be an inspiration to teachers and
pupils alike and all will do better
Every citizen of the city should and
will feel a personal interest and pride
in the school now.
Prof. Counts has labored faithfully
in this community and we know he
feels encouraged to do even greater
things in the future.

Not Such An Easy Matter.
"These skzoes will be all right," said
the salesman, "after you have got
them broken in."
1The young man, who had been hes- (
itating between that pair and one a
size larger, took the safesman's word
for it, <and pu-rchased the shoes. A
week later he came tback to the store
with a perceptible limp.
"I wish you'd stretch these shoes,"
he said. "They hurt my feet terribly." C
"Haven't' you got them broken in (
yet?" asked the salesman.
"Oh, yes," said the young man.
"The trouble is that I can't get my
feet broken in."
