SCHOOL DAYS ARE HERE
School days are with us again, and some of us will be looking back over
the days df childhood and recounting the precious hours that were frittered
away. Young people are seldom able to penetrate the veil of the future and
realize the imperative need of an education. But th need is there and is be
coing more insistent as time goes on and civilization progresses.
In the olden days the educated class were but few in number. Today
they are almost universal. Tomorrow--who knows what the requirements
will be? There is a training school for every profession, for aniost every
trade, and even the tiller of the soil has his colleges 'ind universities fur the
dissemination of knowledge necessary to a wider and more diversified field of
Vith our clildren back in the class rooms again. it would be well for us
of mature years to enlarge our interest in their welfare.
We should extend to the teachers a full measuie of encouragement and
support, and thereby add to the zest of their labors. Our duty does not end
with starting the child to school in the morning. That is only the beginning.
An active and daily interest in its progress will lend encouragement to
its ePf'rts and spur it oil to grente-r success. Parenmi commendation is sweet
to overy child. Indifference is the father of neglect.
AN EXPENSIV.E NECESSITY
The cost of road construction and maintenance is high, we admit-ab
sormally high. But that is no valid reason for letting our highways lose them
selves in the mud this winter. It cost less to fill up a few holes, or open a I
ditch or two, or drag a r'oad now than it will to construct practically a new
one later on.
Good roads are highly essential to the future prosperity of this comniun
ity, and nothing within reason should be allowed to interfere with their proper
maintenance. There are two many brains and too much good judgment in
this community to permit our highways to sink in to gradual decay. It is not
in keeping with our progressiveness in other l'nes.

A wise man never boasts of the money lie makes. It might reach the
ears of his wife.
Before prohibition it was "wine, women and song." Now it is "wine, wo
men and song." That's the difference.
"B. P." bids fair to live in history as signifying "Before Prohibition."
But a good joke is seldom forgotten.
Senator Smith Denounces as
False His Opponents's Charges
I have just been shown a political advertisement of Nlr. George War
ren, which was published in the Charleston American of this date and
which has no doubt been sent to the press generally. I denounce as ab
solutely false the statement that I amf in any combination inl my race for
the senate except with the people of South Carolina to serve them to the
best of my ability.
-'Mr. -Warren, in a desperate effort to win, is attempting to revive
factionalisn inl this state. The effort will be rebuked by our people as
unworthy of any one seeking the suffrage of the people of South Carolina
at this day and time. What I want and will get is the great majority of
the votes of the united people of this state, whatever may have been their
former political afilliations.
"r. Warren has evidently puirposely distorted the facts. They are
as follows: Oni miyi( reurn to mny home in ILynchburg August 9, I received
