But so fur I haven't noted
Thnt she'? sprouted any whiskers or
And she hasn't Indlcnted
Since she got emancipated
That she means to start out raiding
with a bunch of suffragettes.
Took her half an hour to do lt,
And as soon au she was through lt,
Sho weut hustling homo without n
stop to scrub the pantry floor;
Cooked the dinner, did aomo baking,
Trimmed a drcsB that BIH: was mak
Mended socks and got the Ironing all
dono by hair-past four.
She appears to bc ns able
To keep victuals on tho table
And to keef tho moths from feeding
on my go-to-meeting coat
Just as handy with the b.iby
(Or a little moro so. maybe) -
As bho wan before they told her wo
man ought to have thc vote.
Fur as I've observed Mlrandy.
Shn is JiiHt as fond ot cundy
And as keen to read the faahlonn ?nd
the dally household hints
As before she was my "equal."
And-however strange fhn sequel
I've been Just a trifle prouder of Ml

THEY AHE GOING AHEAD.
Greenville County ls going ahead
with plane for taking up thc matter
of paved roads. Richland County is
doing the same. -Union and Ander
son Counties are not going to have
much belter roads next winter than
they havo been having for (he past
decade or tho past ten decades. The
delegations In Richland and Crcin
ville Counties onacted Into luw bond
issues for road work. Union and An
den m Counties left thc matter to a
vote of the people. We have always
ntood for the people and for their
having a voice In such affairs, but If
thia kind of contrast ls going to be
kesjt up, tl n there will soon be a
demand for legislation which will give
Union and Anderson Counties just aa

take advanced steps and perform

In a thousand glowing lines
And compare her eyes of asure with

ls the one you'll ever cherish as no
maid was loved before.
You will pen full many a promise ou
those pages white and dumb
That you never can live up to lu tho
married years to come.,
But a much more precious letter.
bringing more and deeper bliss,
Is the letter to your mother from
thc boy sho cannot kiss.
She will read it very often when the
lights aro soft and low.
Sitting In Gie samo old corner where
she held you years ago.
And regardless of its diction or Its
spelling or its style.
And although ita composition would
provoke a critic's smile.
In her old and trembling Angers it

Stained by tears of joy and sadness
