who presided over the last clarendon
~ourt, and before whom the case of A.
J. Briggs and others against James X.

the will of the late Mrs. E, M. Briggs
in solemn form. and which case re
ulted in a verdict of the jury declar
ing against the validity of the will,
as sent down his order refusing the
motion for a new trial.
It is presumed that this case involv
ng so much will be appealed to the
spreme court. There is mo:-e interest
aken in this case than any that has
een before the courts of this county
n many years. A considerable amount
f property is involved, and too, it has

and the public would like to know
just how it will be finally determined.
Tbe matter was first heard by the
udge of Probate, who decided against
he will, then it went to the court of
xmmon pleas and on the question of
aving it heard by a jury it went to
he supreme court, which tribunal
ecided the case should be heard by a
ury to determine the questions of
act. The first jury failed to agree.

What is a Baby Worth To Your CommunitV

only recently have scientists realized
that the real value of a baby depends
entirely upon the start it gets in life.

To prevent this catastropne, govern

most popular forms of child welfare
work is the Better Babies contest
which has taken root wherever think

practical because it rouses parental
pride, creates a desire to study child
life, and helps humanity by teaching
each parent to help himself
The Better Babies Contest consists
of a competitive examination of chil
dren three years of age or under, by
physicians, with prizes for the high
scoring babies. The entries are made
as in a stock show and measured by
practically the same standards of phy

mental development. &f re beauty

offspring, and also score cards showing
the child's exact physical condition.
This record can be kept from year to

aroused and an interest in child-study
created, but the child itself, seeing
how its body and mind are respected
by its pirents, soon learns to care for
both and to study itself intelligently.

Many states have organized this
work at their state fairs, including
Oregon, Washington, Oklahoma, Neb
raska, Iowa, Minnesota, Louisiana,
Wyoming, Ohio, Montana, Illinois and
Michigan. Hundreds of county and
city fairs are introducing it not only as
an attraction which is sure to increase
gate receipts-for every one loves a
baby, but as a means to arouse interest
in child welfare in the community.

of Clarendon county will hold its first

sometimes confronted with problems
more or less intricate. To express it
geoImetrically the one in mind at pres

and a train on thbe Northwestern due
to arrive there in time for the parade,
to find how many people were in at
