The presentation of the play, its pret

>etween acts, combined to make the en
ertainment an eminent success. The
-eceipts were far beyond expectation,
'ealizing quite a handsome sum for the
wo organizations for which it was got

ssisted by the Summnerton Fire Depart
nent, was instrumental in its presenta
.ion: and each is to receive a half of the
>roceeds. Summerton is to be congrat
ilated upon her wealth of local talent.
Another evidence of this possession
vas manifested in the well rendered

summerton graded school, which took

>f the program was an oratorical eon
est, in which six boys took part. The

The people of this State should un
derstand that while this train is plan
ned and equipped by Winthrop and
Clemson colleges yet had it not been
for the hearty and liberal co-opera
tion of the railroads of this State its
operation would not have been pos
sible. The three great systems of the
State, the Southern, the Seaboard
Air Line and the Atlantic Coast Line
have from the very beginning met the
proposition in the most cordial and
liberal manner. Not only are they
furnishing the equipment in the
shape of cars for this train but they
are also moving that train entirely
free of charge. I think it but proper
that this fact should be known as an
evidence of the interest tl)at these
roads are taking in the welfare of the
people of the State.
Since the last notice of this train
was given to the public another car
has been added thereto by Winthrop
college. This car will be filled with an
exhibit of Household conneniences
and should prove quite an attractive
and of educational value. It has also
been found possible to add more
stock to the equipment of the Live
Stock Car so this feature will be es
The visit of this train should be of
particular interest to the boys of the
various corn clubs of the State and
it is expected that they will turn out
in force, therefore, special work along
the line of corn judging and cultiva
tion will be given by Prof. Napier
and the train will als6 be accompan
ied by Prof. C. B. Hadden who is now
in charge of the Boys Corn Club work
in this State, working under the joint
direction of Clemson college and the
U. S. Farm Demonstration Work. I
Miss Hyde, in charge of the Win
throp cars, will have a competent
corps of assistants and has outlined
an extremely interesting program for
ladies who visit the train.
It is hoped that everyone will real- <
ize that it will take the full day to i
get the maximum of benefit from this
train and that they will make it a
point to reach it early. One day is all
the time that can be allowed at a sin
gle point and we want to urge all
who can to be on hand promptly so
as to get the greatest benefit out of i
ihe train possible.

ATTonNEY AT LAW,

A recruiting-sergeant one day, met an
ignorant youth idling, with his bands
in his pockets and standing before a
house on the front of whic, :as a
notice informing t4e public 4hat the
building .was to. be sold. The notice
ran thus: "To Be Sold by 'Private

"Not me," was the reply. "You'd

"Is that so?" said the other.."Well,
how is it then Private Treaty has a
house for sale and him only -.aptivate
The youth looked thoughtful and
puzzled, and presently, over a pint of
ale, the possibility of owning a house
by joining the army grew into .a cer

A Bird That Is Feared.

apanese have the same partiality for

he Korean considers himself especial

emands hotly, "Are you not my

Whati I your child? You are my

tep further and cries, "You are a
randchild of my grandchild!" to
rhich the rejoinder Is: "You conceit
fi fellow! Have you forgotten that
o are a grandchild of a grandchild
f my grandchild?" When their vi
speration reaches its climax the peo
le of Chosen at last come to the oc
dental standard of exclaiming, "You
