July 28, li)22, Voigt Taylor and I
left Newberry at 7 o'clock. We went
up Main street, turning to the right
at Dr. Dunn's, and walked on, crossing
Johnstone street with Johnstone's
woods on the right. After walking a
little further we turned to -the left at
the end of the woods. After we
turned we met a man who asked us
if we were hiking. We then passed
over a little creek, and on under tne
new branch power line. We walked ,
on, passing houses and passed .a
church and school. At the three mile,
post we met a man with a load of
watermelons. We bought one and ate
it. A man asked us to ride but we
thanked him and explained to him j
that we could not. We walked on and
crossed the* railroad into Prosperity,
about 10 o'clock. We met the scoutmaster
of the Prosperity troop andj
talked with him and were invited to 1
attend his meeting. We thanked him
and told him that we were going back
before night. We rested a while and
then cot something: to drink, after-1
0_- __ !
wards leaving at 10:30. The trip
back was uneventful. Several people
asked us to ride, but we declined.
We rested at a creek and saw a snake
th3t was green with two yellow
stripes down its back. We came into
Newberry, passed Johnstone's woods,
came down Main street, and on home."

meet many folks because it was
too hot and dusty for anything to
stir. We went into a man's house to
get some water. Then we reached a j
creek where we stopped and waded.
Scon after we had left the creek it
started to rain, but it didn't rain '
much. We came on to town without
seeing anything much.

One day in June James Dunstan!
and I started on our fourteen mile,
hike. After starting out a man came '
along and asked us to ride, but we
thanked him and told him that we j
were out to take a test and that we'
could not accept, as the test required
ne tn walk all the wav. We passed
the place where the road leads off to
Lynch woods. We went'on about a i
half mile and saw a house or two J
with peculiar gables on them. We;
passed a great many birds on the '
way and several houses. When we
got within a half .mile of Prosperity ,
we saw some men jacking up a Ford
to fix a tire. We offered them our
assistance, but they declined. They
found that thev would have to return
to Prosperity and offered to take us
in, but we declined. One of the fel-:
lows said that he had been a Scout
in Greenwood. When we were en.
tering the town we saw a rutty
P crowned Kinglet. When we got to (
town we went into a store and bought
some things to eat. We then started ;
back to Newberry. When we had
gone about two miles we stopped and
filled our canteens at a well. When
we got the water we went down the
road a piece and ate our lunch. Af- '
4 ter about a quarter hour we started
heme again, but we had to stop
because I had a pain in my side. In '
about five minutes the pain was gone j
and we came on to Newberry.

TALKS OF DROUGHT
Winter to Be Cold?One Snow Likely i
to Fall in Columbia?Frost
Due This Month
The State, Oth.
W. P. Houseal, Dutch weather;
prophet, says that the approaching
winter will be colder than the winter ,
of last year and that at least one ?
heavy snow will fall south and east
of the Blue Ridge; the indications j
are, the prophet says, that Columbia
will be in the path of this snow.
Following are the weather com-!
ments of Mr. Houseal:
The prolonged drought has no 1
doubt brought an apprehension that,
it would continue throughout the fall !
and winter. However, conditions
which prevailed September 22-29 in- j
dicated precipitation during the win- j
tor to provide sufficient soil moisture
for the sowing and germination of
? - t
grain crops. Tht>se indications have
^ j- <.1., ? i I
already do en apparent m ui*; anunu- t
ant rain which has broken the'
The drought had some remarkable,
features. It prevailed over the I
whole country and was broken by;
rainfall simultaneously in the regions j
of the ljke and gulf. The change was I
apparent Thursday at noon when the '
wind, which had been from the east j
nearly three weeks, moved to the :
south in the upper atmosphere, yet it j
still continued from the east in an \
ovf>rx?f!in(rl v lower stratum barely'
above the height of a three story J
building. There was never any doubt
at sunset Wednesday that this section
would be visited by rain within 72
hours. The principle in meteorology j
which governs these conditions is as
old as the earth itself. The' east,
wind had deposited a tremendous |
mosphere and as the high pressure
changed to the lower form it rftet a
response in a like condition coming
from the Carribean sea and the south
wind gradually absorbed the east
wind by rising above it. This was j
/ ltijirlv inHirteria a week before the !
direct change occurred, as all the_|
clcuds which were to be observed at j
all came from the gulf. Usually under
normal conditions such an east
wind as prevailed during the latter
part of September would bring rain ^
within one-tenth of the time as was
the case during the recent drought
It is very probable that about October
23 a disturbance of great in-j'
tensity will prevail in the gulf and ^
its course be northeastward and
along the south Atlantic course.
In addition, the same conditions!
observed September 22-29 indicats a j'
colder winter than last year. The next|:
period for lowest temperature of the J
season will occur around October 15. j This
will be the central date, and one ^
frost will occur' either three days;
ahead or after this date. It will not!
be a killing frost. Nature is a greae ;
protector of its products and obser- j
vation of certain fauna show that j
frost thus early will not prevent their j
full growth and bloom. So far, how-1
ever, as crops are concerned the j
drought has had the same eftect a;
killing: frost would have produced at '
this period of the year.
At least one heavy snow will occur
during the winter south and east of I
the Blue Ridge, and indications are
such that Columbia will be in its
path. While it is not easy to fore- \
cast the date of a snow more than 30 '
days ahead of time, it has been my j
purpse to say that in this annual j
forecast snow will occur about the j
date of the winter solstice, December j

j Rehearsals have begun in earnest
on the A. E. F. musical comedy,

trcmely funny throughout and was

;The scene is laid in a "Y" hut near

two charming daughters of a '

The lifth article on "Who Got the
Money?" appears in the Weekly of
Oct. 6. Read it. You will find it
interesting. This article tells how
that Philadelphia broker in April,
1921, bought roast beef for 1.3 cents
a pound for which the government
paid 43.8 cents. Once in private
hands this beef went on the market
at 9.1 cents a pound wholesale. But
for the short time that the army was
in retail business, it sold this same
jbeef direct to the consumer for more
than 33. cents a pound.

A lively meeting' of the Fred H.
Sexton post at Florence was held
Tuesday night. A large number of
members attended. Plans were made
far a resrular army canteen at the
fair grounds during the Pee Dee fair
October 17 to 20. Commander McIver
is to name a committee to have
charge of this feature. The management
of the opera house md the post
J are working on plans looking to a
i benefit entertainment for the post
j during the fair.
The South Carolina delegation to
the national convention at New Orleans
will leave next Sunday. It is
expected that the Palmetto state will
be well represented this year as a

destroyers sailing from Charleston.
It is understood that Branchville
will have about eight representatives
at New Orleans. It is fine when a
small post can find so many men that
are willing to attend. Branchville
post has shown that it is made up of
wide-awake members who can and
will work for the legion.
"Wo u-unt a home of our own" is
the attitude of the legion men at
Florence. At the last meeting the
question of erecting a home for the
exclusive use of the legion was freely
discussed. With the Florence men
actively behind the movement it is
certain that something will be accmplished.
The time is drawing near for all
posts to plan something special for
Armistice day. This is the greatest
event in the legion's calendar and
every post should take proper action
to see that it is observed in a manner
befitting the occasion.
A Pullman load of legion members
from the Pee Dee section are expected
to swing- into line for the national
convention next Sunday. Many members
of the auxiliary will attend in
addition to the regularly elected delegates.
AH reservations must be
made through the department adjutant.
