in the annual statement of all hea(1

Approximately 3,090 women and girls

tbe inembers of the clubs.
Bread club work is now being con

new feature was inaugurated in 1914.
This summer a short course will
be given at Winthrop college. Two
girls will attend from each county.
In addition three-day courses will ~e
glyen at Charleston, Gaffney, Coluin
bia and Greenville.
"Our home demonstration work,"
says Miss Parrott, "is a strilving ex

and rural activities."
The demonstration work has been
litagurated in the following counties:
Abbeville, Anderson, Barnwell, Beau
fort, Charleston, Chester, Cherokee,
Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Flor
ence, Greenville, Horry, Lee, Lexing

IN THICK OF FIGHT
Fierce Exaltation of Battle Told
Corporal Describes the Hoarse Shouts,
the Rasp of Steel on Steel, the
Appeals for Mercy In Street
Paris.-"No more excitement; an
astonishing caliml fills us as we open
fire upon the Germans who have taken
cover in the houses in the outskirts
of the village," swrites Charles Tar
dieu in a recent installment of his
"Impressions of a Corporal," published
in the Figaro.
"From windows, embrasures, from
the cover of doorways they blaze away
at us. Forty bodies are strewn aeross
the interval between us; a few wound
ed men are scrambling and wriggling
in the mud. Little by little we re
gain our breath.
"At the top of the village street de
bouches a company of German infan
try. A hellish fire welcomes them,
but still they come on, sowing their
dead by files. Faster and faster we
pump our breech bolts. Thei first
ranks crumple, they tramp over them;
the next rank falls,, still they come
on. At last their chief, a hugd..devil
of an officer, who is waving them on,
goes down. A new volley drops.seven
or eight more men. This time they
stop, hesitate a second, then turn and
"'Ohirge!' roars the captain. 'Give
them the steell' We rush in, our two
buglers, their neck veins swelling,
playing us the heart-stirring notes of
the charge. . A heroic intoxication
swells through us and we run like be
ings possessed into the narrow 'treets,
through the humming bullets.
"Into houses, through gardens, past
open doorways the skirithishers throw
themselves, to come out with dripping
bayonets. No more shots--death
shrieks, groans, hoarse shouts, piteous
cries for mercy are mingled with the
crash of falling furniture, the slam
ining of doors, the nasty rasp of steel
on steel. And over it all the strident
notes of the charge!
"From each house as it is silenced
pour our men, some of them wounded.
Hatless, coatless, without their'packs;
one man has discardod his blouse and
is working with his sleeves rolled up.
"Trampling on the corpses that
strew the way, leaping over obstruc
tions, we niake our way up the street,
when a machine gun section appears
in front of us. But before they have
time to unlimber we are upon them.
An instant of hard work with butt
and steel and its crew is down be
