horrors of the Chinese famine were
given today in a Rod Cross r< rt
from China, prepared at the request
of Minister Calhoun. The report sai'.l
that in a part of the famine section,
land where no children play, there is
no grain, meat, vegetables or f jrd- i
stuffs of any kind, nothing except che
bark of trees, roots, dried grass and
the like. Here the faihers die first,j
the mothers second, then the oldest

showing the spirit of self-sacrifice. In
several homes only the youngest child j
was found, all the remainder of the j
family having succumbed to the gnaw- .

URGED TO ORGANIZE.
E. W. Comer Issues Call to Rural Free
To the R. F. D. Letter Carriers of
Dear Brethren: Since my last call
to you I have received many very encouraging
letters concerning our as-!
sociation work throughout the State,
and .1 am writing you once more to
ask each carrier in the State to "make
a special effort between now and May
20 to eet everv carrier in your county
that is not a member of the county association
to join 011 that day. All the
organized counties in the State will
hold their annual meeting on that date
to elect officers fpr next year and
also to elect delegates to the State association,
and I ask that each county
elect a strong delegation to the State
association, and I hope that all the
unorganized counties in the State will
call the boys together and organize
and elect a president, vice president,
secretary and treasurer. The dues are
as follows: State dues, 50 cents; national
dues, 50 cents, '""ollect the
above amount from each member and
send $1 for each member to Paul K.
Crosby, Ruffin, S. C., and he will send
you a receipt for same. After you
have collected dues from all, then
your delegates according to this rule:
One delegate at large and one for
every ten members or major fraction.
I feel sure that we will have the best
and most enthusiastic convention at
Chester July 3-5 that our State has
ever held if the boys will only get
| busy. Just a word to the unorganized
counties: The county. State and national
associations need your assistance
in carrying on- the great work
of bettering our condition. The present
congress, through our organized
efforts, has- passed a bill that will be
of great benefit to us all, and if all the
carriers in this State and throughout
the United States would come into the
ussnrintMn and helD we could have
anything in reason that we would ask
i for. I trust that you will see the
: point and come into the association at
once and help the few in the work we
are striving to accomplish.
E. W. Comer,
, State President.

! WOMEN OF DEMOCRACY GIVE
| "DOLLY MADISON" BREAKFAST
| Washington, May 20.?A large com!
pany of Democratic women gathered
| here today at a breakfast to recall
'from the haze of a hundred years ago
ja gentle presence which once dominated
^ i ne women consuuumg uus leuu- j
nire democracy were mostly the j
i wives and daughters of Democrats, although
any woman allied with a disciple
of Jefferson was eligible to
attend. The woman thus honored on
the 140th anniversary of her birth was
^Dolly Madison, wife of a president of
I the United States and social arbiter
'during four administrations, for Mrs.
i Madison was virtually mistress of the
I White House during the regime of
1 Jefferson, whose term of office pre
j ceded her husband's.
Mrs. Madison's personality, indeli- j
j bly imprinted on the life of her day I
and generation, was recounted by
: several modern women of democracy.
Mrs. Wm. J. Bryan, speaking of Mrs.
Madison's character, first paid her
; respects to Mrs. Madison by recog- ,
! nizing "a large debt to the bright mind
which first thought of promoting good
feeling among Democratic women by
having them meet each other "
Making allowances for Mrs. Madison's
lack of early education and the
advantages of travel, Mrs. Bryan said
the famous mistress of the White
House would be remembered "for
what she was, fully as much as for
? fYvntirmina: Mrs. Bry- !
j VY lid L o-iic Vi^ ~
an said of the famous Dolly:
"As a Quakeress she was sober and
demure; in official life she was tactful,
gracious, dignified or gay as the j
ioccasion demanded; in later life faithI
ful; in old age, serious."
