An interesting legal question has
developed in the court at Greenville, j
A man and woman were convicted of j
adultery some time ago and the sen'
tence was suspended. They went away
and both secured divorces from their
respective spouses in States that recognize
divorces. They went to North j
Carolina and were married and sub- j
sequently moved back to South Caro- j
lina. South Carolina does not recognize
divorce laws and so they were
again .brought into court and the judgs4
holds that they will h?ve to serve the
sentence for the crime of which they
"were convicted, that so far as South
Carolina is concerned they are not legally
married. The case is to be carried
to the supreme court.
The point we were thinking about
also is, suppose they were to go ahead

just as much as they are now. 'Would
they be tried again or would it be a
case of being placed in jeopardy twice
for the same offense. Nn doubt there

good work for the roads in the Jolly

chat section will just organize some
split log drag clubs now and keep
them active after each rain the roads
will remain good. They worked our
road by the old Aull place and as soon
as we can get it dragged and another
bridge built it will be ready for travel.
In fact we drove over it on Tuesday
from St. Pauls on to Prosperity.
A little travel and a littlefdragging
will make it all right. There are a
couple right good hills but then there
are hills all through this section.
Captain W. S. Langford writes an
interesting letter from Texas which
is published in this issue. He talks
about the boll weevil and tells "how
the people out there are working it
and warns the farmers of Newberry

we do not it will not be 'because we

In one of his iarticles of "Bleaseism"
Koester strats out with this statement:
"1 hate, abhor and abominate factionalism,
I mean the kind of unbridled
passion that makes you vote
for a bad candidate, ben-msp hp han
pens to be on your side of the factional
fence, in preference to a good
candidate who happens to be on the
other side. In fact, factionalism is
often so blind that it makes those under
its influence incapable of seeing
faults in a candidate lined up with
them or virtues in one of conflicting
partisan persuasion.s^VThen such factionalism
is generally rife, you get

Neither has this writer been a factionalism

carried to the same extent,

After he was taken sick he
