The time to do good is today. Wiy
wait until tomorrow? The unkind
word you utter today you may be sorry
for tomorrow. If you have flowers
for your friend, don't wait to place the
costly wreath upon his grave. Put
them in his path as he goes down the
highway. Give him the buttonhole

Magistrate Aughtry, of Whitmire,
says that the grand jury has wrongly
accused him. He denies that he compromised
any cases and collected
money and failed to turn it over. In
fact he says that he has ne^'er compromised
a case. T>.at he was a little
slow in sending in some money and
his report due to sickness. Grand
juries should be sure of their facts
before they present officials or individuals.
Comptroller General A. TV. Jones
says that as he interprets the warehouse
aci mat some of the insurance
of the cotton should be taken through
the sinking fund commission. It
looks to us that his contention is correct.
We spoke to tfne commissioner
about giving some of the insurance to
tihe local agent and he replied that
he would be glad to do so but that under
the act and the heavy bond which
he is required to give and to make the
cotton good collateral and protect the
onan who makes loans on it he had to
have a report every day and that it
would be impracticable from many of
tee warehouses if the insurance was
.placed through the local agent. But
the sinking iund commission for he
pro-portion of the insurance it would
write would be lust as safe as anv of
the insurance companies. It is worth
It is right and proper of course that
our people should send money and
provisions to the starving Belgians but
we have a problem in our own county,
or will have very soon, that ..ill
need tfte assistance and best thought
of ouj people in its solution. There
are now, ana will be soon very many
more, people out of employment and
% with nothing on hand to take them
through the winter. There are always
a great many people out employ*ment
in the large cities in tfae north
and east, but we notice recently in
some of the papers, articles from men
who have lost their positions and wfco
have notliing upon which to take them
through the winter and who are seeking
employment and are unable to find
it. In an article which we read recently
we find this paragraph:
"If it /bad been necessary we could
have promptly raised an army in an
orderly, well-thought-out fashion. But
when it came to the greatest business
of peace in the time of calamity?
keeping men and women at work?nobody
knew what to do, unless to contribute
to a soup kitchen."
Tbat is the problem which is calling
ak.und for solution today, to give
men and women employment so that
they may be able to earn honestly, the !
necessaries of life. And that is the j
problem wf.:ich is demanding the best
thought of the age :n this country.
In the American Magazine for Decembr
Will Irvin has a very interesting
article on "The 'Glory' of War."
It is a survey of the war and its ffacts
as seen by him in England, Belgium,
France and the edge of German.
This is the most f-orrible war
in the annals of history. There are
more men engaged and the engines of
destruction are more powerful. We
utrsixt; iv yjuvic jusi uuc partvgi
from this article which will give the
reader some idea of what this war
"Let me begin with the outward and
obvious manifestations o: war, the
fighting. In some old history, I remember
this line concerning Grant's
operations in the Wilderness
campaign: "There w*as none of the
pomp and parade of war; only its hor
rible butchery." Those glorious, dasning
cavalry charges beloved by the
poets, those tossing plumes and
sounding brass which lured our youth
to the colors in the old days?they are
not visible along the Marne the Aisne.
The mentor of modern war is not your
plumed beau sabreur; fte is a cold,
exact man of science w? o butchers
j Dy tne t>ooK. lour moaern army is
an orderly arrangment of gray-clad or
brown-clad men, equipped with ttie
last word in modern scientific instruments
of carnage, directed, like a section
gang, by the whistle, killing or
getting killed soberly, mechanically.
Your modern battle is 'not a day's affair
or a two days' affair, an assembly
in the morning, a harangue about
glory or the grave, a cew hours of
hell, a retreat, a long gathering of
force and strength for the next battle.
It is solid, continuous, deadly
slugging, day after day, week after
week, until men cease to care for the
hazard of life and death through sfneer
exhaustion, until regiments fade out
through sheer hemorrhage."

Cross Hill cor. Honea Path Chronicle,
Another marriage of note was celebrated
Wednesday evening, November
18, at the tome of Mrs. Sophia Pinson,
aunt o:' the bride, when Mr. John
Miller, of Whitmire, led to cupid's
altar Miss Wilma Ramey, one of Cross
Hill's most beautiful and charming i
young ladies. The matrimonial ceremony
was performed in the presence
of about 50 invited guests by Rev. J.
T. Miller, of Waterloo, pastor of the
bride and kindsman of the broom. .The
happy couple are making their .home
at Whitmire where Mr. Miller is engaged
in the mercantile business. The
groom is the oldest son of 'W,. M. Miller
of this place.
Let us remember that the merchant
did not have ih-is goods given to
him, but he has either paid for them
or he will have to pay, and fbe can
not pay his bills unless he is paid. Greenwood

out oi one ming we are qune sure,
the merchant should not be forced to
stand up and be squeezed as he is
being squeezed. There are plenty a"
people w&o are able to pay him every
dollar that they owe, but fcbey are taking
advantage of the situation to stave
off payment.?Greenwood Jaurnal.
