TO MARK THE GRAVES.
The United Daughters of the Confed
eracy to Mark tht. Graves of
For sone time past the members of
the Drayton Rutherford Chapter U.
1). C., have been planning to. mark the
graves of the veterans, those who died
during the war and those who have
died since. Unless this step is taken,
before a great many years there will
be great trouble in identifying the
last resting place of the bodies of
some of these heroes; many of whom
have no stone to mark their graves,
ind some having no relatives alive to
do this, will probably never have it
done unless the U. D. C. undertakes
it. If it is not done. the probability
is that the beautiful custom of memo
rial day will fall into disuse, because
of a lack of knowledge as to who are
the confederate dead. This, of course,
must not be. if we of this generation
can prevent it. The plan of the
daughters is to mark every grave
alike, so that the most casual glance
will tell you at once that the grave
is that of a Confederate soldier. They
have already given the order for these
markers, and the design selected can
not fail to please. A white marble 1
slab, standing one foot out- of thet
ground, eight inches wide by two
thick, bearing upon the face the Con
federate battle flag, and on - the re
verse side the name of him who rests
beneath, on those graves which have
not monuments already. These mark
ers will be placed in exactly the"sameI
position on every grave. Feeling
deeply the sacredness of the work
which they. are undertaking and the
interest it must awaken in the soul
of every one, at all identified with the
lost cause, the daughters have decid
ed to try to raise the money neces
sary for this work (more than one
hundred dollars) by the gifts- of
those whose duty and joy it is to hon
or our brave dead. The daughters in
this way appeal to all, who deem the
cause a worthy one, to give as-gener
ous1v as possible. Every member of
the chapter has been asked for the
(ift of one dollar, and the Sons of
Vtre.ans and all interested in per
petuating the valor of our fathers!
anJd other brave kindred, 'are asked tol
help. . The daughters havMe set.-the
6th of March as the time .for. the eol
lecting- of this fund. Contributions
for this work may be turned. over t.
Mr. John M. Kinard, or to.any mem
ber of the chapter.
The daughters feel. assured . that
this appeal will meet with a most
hearty response from all. friends of
the lost cause.

"Not Like Other Girls"
Considerable interest is. being- man
ifested in the forthcoming production
in this city of Tolstoi 's European sen
sation "Not Like Other Girls'' which
has, been secured after considerable
expense, for presentation in this city
at the opera house on March 26th.
The'play has proved the reigning
sueses of Europe and has recently
been pr oduced in New York and Phil
a delphia with great success. The
drmtization for American produc
tion was made by Frederick W.
Sbwartz, the noted dramatist and
author of "Hereafter," etc.. from a~
personal conference with Count Leo
Toist.oi, the author of "The Resur
rection'' and other famous works.
The play has been woven from Tol
stoi 's charge to emperors, monarchs,
zars and presidents in which he sta
ted that to settle international -diffi
eulties by sword or gun was nothing
but murder and a violation of God's
commandment "Thou Shalt Not
Kill." The company is a large one

Say, Chips, did you know that the
legislature appropriated two thousand
dollars for a private school and what
do you think of it?
We were glad to have our friend
Chips come in and shake hands with
us a day or two ago. For a man with

All that money appropriated and
nothing done to give us better roads.
My, my, what a time these R. F. D.

As the record breaking legislature

Just along that line we just heard
today of' two of our young and en
ergetic business men were thinking
of going to some other town, where
they had a water system and elec
tric lights. The loss of these tw~o
gentlemen would certainly be a great
loss to our town. We have already
lost to* Newberry one of our active
men, Mr. J. H. Hunter, and we can ill
aford to lose any more. Give us
electric lights and we will have the
water system by and by. We must
have something to attract people or
they will go elsewhere. What induce
ments have we to offer as it is over
against a town with water and lights,
to a prospective citizen who is look
ing for a home in a town with advan
tages. We ask our people to think
about this. We need a company to

them on long time to renters and sell

NO SLUMP IN COTTON.
Farmers Who Have Cotton Are
Philadelphia. February 21.-Colo
nel Harvie Jordan. president of the
Southern Cotton Planters' associa
tion, said today that there had been
no break in the ranks of the farmers.
who are still holding tbeir cotton.
This accounts, Col. Jordan says,
for the heavy receipts. as exporters
must rush their cotton forward so as
to complete the orders of spinners,
who are becoming alarmed that they
are not going to get their cotton.
There has been no opportunity to pre
pare for planting and this will make
a late crop). Consumption is going on
at the rate of 1,000,000 bales per
month, and the fact that no spinners
can get new cotton in their mills up
to November next shows the require
ments to be 8,000,000 bales.
"Where is the cotton to come
from?'' asks the Colonel. "Mills
cannot use green cotton, for dry goods
people will specify that their goods
shall be delivered them as old crop."
The 11 cents minimum price will be
charged for the new crop, the Colonel
says, and he adds that he "wonders
at the temerity of any one who would
Isell cotton short at present quota
