Notwithstanding the efforts of the
big warehousemnen the tobacco growers
of Clarendon do not desire legislation
which will force them to place their
tobacco on the market in graded form.
They believe, and with good reason,
the agitation is solely in the interest
of the large warehouses, and if a law is
enacted to force grading it will have a
tendency to drive out the competition
from the smaller markets.
The teachers' meeting will be held
in the court house here next Saturday,
instead of the graded school building.

To The Women of Clarendon:
We wish to broaden out in our work
this year, and so I want to enroll a few
women in each community as home
demonstrators. We wish to teach these
some forms of demonstration work that
will lighten the labor in the homes,
and thus explode the old ditty that
"men work from sun to sun, but wom
en's work is never done." I want to
visit the homes of the demonstrators
and show them how to make and use a
fireless cooker, and other thitigs which
I as demonstrator prove to them are
to be desired. A t the end of one year I
will ask each one for a r eport o~f what
she has done. I hope that all who are
willing to be enrolled as demonstrators
will write me as soon as possible.

Rev. B. F. McLendon Ended a Four Weeks
Series of Services Wednesday Night
- Much Good Accomplished.
When it was advertised that Rev. B.
F. McLerdon, who has held meetings
-in several of the towns near Sumter,
was to start a series of meetings here
some of the people seemed rather dis
posed to be antagonistic to his work,
which was brought about to some ex
tent by re ,rts of his sayings and do
ings, whic , after they had attended
some of his meeting, they found in some
cases to be exagerated. Those who
went to hear him wanted to hear him
again, and went, until the spacious hall
above the Express office was by far too
small to accomodate them.
It is true some of his sayings were
irite and some of the language used
was not like that which most people
were accustomed to hear from the
~acred desk, but they soon found that
he words he uttered were solemn
ruths, which burned into the very
learts of his hearers, and the earnest
ess with which they were uttered comn
elled the people to listen and ponder
>ver their condition.
Rev. McLendon has done a great
!ork in Sumter. He has labored faith
ully and well. He has been fearless
n his exposition of the sacred word,
lething his thought in plain words,
hat brought thbe tears to many a face,
.nd as his reward he has seen many
>ersons who before the meetings did I
lt understand nor care for religious Z
>atters, announce before the assem
led mulitudes that they were determ- r
d to right-about-face and live a better
fe. It has been estimated that fully c
fteen hu'mded people have reformed v
uring the. past four weeks. Among n
b~is number were many whom none s
oald have expected to take the stand p
yr right that they have. 5
Last Sunday morning he occupied c:
he pulpit of the Trinty Metho.iist ti
burch, and took for his theme the sub- n
,ct of Repentance. l'here were about if
300 people in the audience who listen- ti
i intently to his words, and at the a
ose he was gratified to see many lti
>me forward and by that say they 'e
ould lead a better- life. d
In the afternoon he spoke to a crowd
i house at the Academy of Music, and li
ere were none in the audience who oi
yubted his attitude regarding this tv
igantic evil under whose reign he bad h;
one time been a willing subject. ti
Rev. McLendon is vet a young man ti
'about 36 years. His childhood and d<
>uth were spent in Bennettsville, Ias
here he followed the occupations of ti
erk and barber. H-e was at one time rf
msdered one or the worst characters te
i that section, living a wild dissipated is
fe to about six years ago, when he set li:
is face about and commenced living a nt
odly life. Feeling himself called to tc
I the good tidings he attended a the- fo
ogical seminary about two years and or
trwards took up the evangelistic w,
ork. Wherever he has gone he has th
~en very successful in his chosen call- th
and his friends hope he will be fo
ared to a long life of usefulness. From
re he goes to Philadelphia there he pc
ill continue the work. The people of in
rmter are exceedingly anxious that w<
return later in the spring and hold w:
other meeting along the same lines pa
the one he has just closed for they w(
el that he will be able to do a much pu
ger wvork at his second visit than be an

The Legislative Delegation met with
tbe county Board of Commissioners on
Jan. 6th. All the members of both
the Delegation and Board were pres
1 got in late and the business of the
meeting seemed well under way. Af
ter listening for a while I understood
from a statement of the Supervisor in
reply to a question from the Senator
that, the county debt, exclusive of
bonded debt, was only seventeen thous
and dollars. Now we all remember
that the auditing of the county's rec
ords showed a twenty-one thousand
two hundred and eighty two 21,282,
Now if the 4 1-2 mill levy raised a
sufficient sum to pay the running ex
pense of the county and four thousand
collars on the county debt, cutting it
from twenty one thousand to seventeen-*
thousand dollars as reported by the
supervisor, then the same levy will in
t very few years pay off the entire;
This sounds good, but we know there
s a mistake some where, for the 4 1-2
nill levy will not raise enough money,
ines and licenses included, to run the
We find as stated by the Supervisor
bat the 1-2 mill levy to pay the inter
at on and create a sinking fund to re
ire the ten thousand dollar bonds fort
ack indebtedness, will be no longer
eeded for that purpose, because the
en thousand dollars has already been
uised to pay this aebt.
I suggested that the three dollar

iake it optional, that is, either work.
x days or pay the tax. - I tried to ex
lain that it would be very difmcult for
>me to raise the money but that they
>uld do the work. On this proposi
on I was by myself, all the other
embers of the delega tion wanted to I
irce all liable to road duty to pay the
ex. I hope they will not hold to that
hen they realize the hardness .of tbe <
mes and the scarcity of money, which
ridently they have failed thus far to
Tbe next question before us I be- a
eye was the tax assessment on taking 1
returns, this costs the county some I
~elve hundred dollars each year and s
sa up to present proved a. failure in e
at the township assesors failed to put s5
Le property on the tax books, so we
'cided to do away with the three 5's
sessors in each township and go back |

turns. I am sorry to stop this sys- b
m of taking returns, for I belier-e it 8:
the ideal way to get the property h
~ted for taxation, the only change S
eded is, to put one man in each I

I was glad to learn that the rural D
lice were turning in sufficient money
fir.es to pay their salaries, so that w

.y of taxes. I wish the county news- t
pers would secure and publish each b4
