With YourSeed Corn
You may have the finest looking Co-n' in the country.
It may suit you all right, even if it produdes in the field a
lot of stalks with only. fodder on them, for which you give
the same cire and attention as productive stalks. You may
never have to buy Corn, but always have plenty to sell,
and, yet, perhaps after thinking the matter over, you will
not be opposed to the idea of cutting .out those loafing
stalks in your field and bringing up' your yield, which of
course you wouldn't need; however, this extra Corn you
could sell, or, better still, give it to the wife and children
for pin money. Anyhow, it sure does look like good busi
ness to make more if you can, simply by using pure bred

The Civic League held its regular
monthly meeting at the Court House
Monday afternoon, Feb. 18th. Good
reports from the dIifferent comminittees
showv the League to be widle awake
and doing splendid work in every de
partm -nt. We are g lad to mention
the g ieat improvement in the appecar
ance of the business streets ' in the
wvay of unsightly things not being al
lowed to be put on the pavements.
Truly the Town Council has taken a
progressive step in passing an ordli
nance forbidding the hitching of hors
es onl the business blocks-a much
needled sanitary correction. The May
or is having the streets cleaned every
Saturday night so as to present a re
spectable aippearance for Sunday. This
work has been carried on through the
efforts of the street committee of the
League. This coopeoration is very much
appreciated by the League. A check
for $20.00, our quota for the establish
ment of a community club at Camp
Sevier, has been sent to headquarters.
As soon as all the money from the
chain of teas is collected, we' hope to
hand the Red Cross a, substantial
amount from this much enjoyed enter
tainment of the past tour weeks. The
followinig new names were added to
our roll at the last meeting: Mrs. J.
W. Wideman, Mrs. Carlisle Bradham,
Mrs. I. I. Appelt, Mrs. E. L. Wilkins,
andl Mrs. L. ~L. Wells. The member
ship is ever on the increase--total be
ing 92, but we are always on the alert
to get others to join .us and help make
Manning one of the cleancet and most
beautiful tbwns in the statei.

The Sardinia Home Demonstration
Club met February 15, 1918, at the
home of Mrs. T. M. ICutcheon. This
was the first meeting held by Mrs. S.
0. Plowden, who has recently been ap
pointed War Agent in this part of the
county. The club most gladly re
ceived Mrs. Plowden and we are ex
pecting a splendid year's work to
gether. The roll was called and min
utes of last meeting read and approv
ed. The first thins on the program
was a very interesting talk on "Patri
otism" by Mrs. Plowden, giving he
club many helpful hints as to carry
ing on our work. She suggested al
so that one or two committees be ap
pointed to assist the president in ar
ranging for the demonstrations at
each meeting. The topic for the af
ternoon was "Gardening." As this is
planting time, hot beds were thor
oughly explained and Mrs. Plowden
urged each member to begin a bed.
After general discussion of the topic
the ladies were invited into, the sun
shiny kitchen where a most interest
ing demonstration in making salad
dressing took place. Mrs. McCutch
con had prepared some delightful cof
fee and war bread to eat with the sal
ad and every one decided the demon
stration was quite a success. The club
voted to meet alphabetically, the next
meeting to be with Mrs. W. R. Bur
gess. The present ofifcers were re
elected for the coming year. Mrs.
Plowden read to the club a new song
which 'is certainly very clever. The
club adjourned to meet one month

MACISTE OP .NS AT THE GRAND
Unitual Motion Picture Delights Hig
Maciste, a multiple reel fet. . rnic
ture, opened a five clay engagsment at
the Grand Opera House last night.
Naturally the leading character was
Maciste, the modern Hercules whosN
strength and feats of dariuig stood
out above all things else in the re
markable picture-play Cabiria which
showed here one year ago. Maciste
was not the big black which he ap
pearedi in the previous picture,' but
instead appeCared on the screen last
night as a wholesome wvhite man.
The story of the feature picture is
that of a girl who is pursued by an
uncle in an attempt to secure her title
and estate. -The girl enlists the aid
of Maciste as a protector, and then
things begin to hap pen.
The strength of the whitse man is
ap~parent from the beginning. He
goes into a group of conspirators and
throwvs them through the air as if
they were (dol1s. More fights followv
ing with equally surprising things
Ianother scene Maciste picks up
n tree and throws it in the path of a
speeding machine, while still more
gasps of astonishment are secured
from the audience when he walks onto
a railroad track and picks up a cou
ple of people and wvalIks away with
them just as a locomotive thunders
The scene is laid in a mythical
country where splendor is on all sides.
The small dletails are worked out with
as much precision as the more Im-,
portant ones..-At The Pastime Fri
