pie, Gathered Around the State
Agitation is being urged in edu
.ational circles for the passage of a
bill at the approaching session of the
legislature which would provide for
the appointment of a state organizer
of night schools, similar to those con
ducted last winter In Laurens and
Newberry counties, It Is argued that
such a plan w.euld meet with the uni
versal approval, and that it would cer
tainly merit the liberal support of the
general assembly. A complete bulle
tin, setting fo.dh il detail what has
been accomplished in Laurens through
the efforts of Miss Wil Lou Gray, has
.just been issued by John E. vwearin
gell, state siup)erinte nlelt of educ:a

ilisi Gray, 'ho i.; the sup'rvi:in -
teacher of Iaurlens county, went to
'ouli's township. whi(b according
to sta tistics revealed tle highest. per
eentage of illiteracy. Concerning
her initial efforts to organize the
night school there Miss Gary writes:
"I had been 'told by nearly every
one that uneducated men would be
Insulted when approached on the
subject of making up lost opl)ortllni
ties. The first man to whom I spoke
could neither read nor write. In re
sponse ot my question he replied, 'I
would give half I expect to make this
year to learn to read and write.' So
anxious was he to assist that he
agreed to take a number of us to
school that night in a wagon. . . . .
One trustee, when requested to come
for his influence replied, 'I am com
ing because I need it.'"
A resultant of Miss Gray's efforts
was the organization of night schools
in seven districts in Young's town
ship. The schools were conducted
one month, wvith three night sessions
of two hours each week. The number
of pupils who attended three nights or
more was 14d. Only seven of these
wore women. The average nightly at
tendance wvas 92. Twenty-one of the
men andl One womain attended every
night. The courses of study 1*re
seribed included the three "r 's" or
reading, writing and arithmetic.
4 A particularly interesting feature
of the bulletin of information com
piled by lMiss Gray is the table of
the ages df tihe pupils. Two had al
-readr paded the three score mark;
seven hgd advanced beyond 50; 24
were over 40: 48 had passed 30: 20
were beyond 20; and 19 were under

W. W. Long, United States farm
demonstration agent for South Caro
lina in co-operation with Clemson col
lege, will speak at the meeting of the
Conference for the Common Good on
the morning of September 9 on "The
New Live Stock Marketing System in
South Carolina." Mr. Long is the
originator of this system of market
ing cattle in South Carolina. Through
the influence of the United States de
partment of agriculture, representa
tives of the big packing houses of
the country attended sales of live
stock at several points in South Caro
lina last winter. The cattle raisers
were very much pleased with the
prices they received, it is said. It is
especially important that the market
ing of live stock be given attention
in South Carolina now since the state
and the federal bureau of animal in
dustry are jointly eradicating the
cattle tick and removing the fcdemial
ouarantine against 'T'xas fever so that

MERRY DOGS OF WAR
Tale of "Ugly," Scarred Hero of
a Hundred Battles.
Wins Fame and Corporal's Stripes
With the British Troops in North
ern France-A Challenge
and What Came of It.
By GEORGE DUFRESNE.
International News Service Correspondent.1
Paris.-In the early days of this
war, Ugly scrambled ashore in north
orn France a stowaway on one of the
channel packets. He was a khaki
tinted cur of the most disreputable
appearance. Nobody's dog; but witih
a soul so tuned to the doings of sol
diers that as soon as he discovered
that the great game was going on, he
swore to be in it and of it. He was a
natural fighter, scored and scarred
with a hundred battles.
So they attached him hero to B. X.,
which means any sort of Joh that's
going at the base-"13"-standing for
base, and "X" being the recognized
algebraic symbol signifying an un
known quantity. He was signed on
the A. S. C. (Pickford's Light Horse)
to (eal with the rats which ravage
the bales down by the docks. Like
the minister of munitions he was
given a free hand with his subject.
ani so s'ueeesful was he with theso
stray-.iac(ket''l rascals that he soon re

y tense evening of the mnee't ing of these
r growling (reeks arrivetd, the arena
't was pWa'kedh with an eager, brown
faced crowd, anil a-thrnoh with th
sweet pleasures of aniticipat ion. Ser
geant Smiler arrived, due to time, in
a carefully corded biscuiit biox.
Ugly was already in possession of
the floor, striding up and down in the
fierce pride of ownersie, an snarl
ing a challenge to the whole category
The box was dragged into the ring,
the cordls unlaced, the lid raised. the
cage tipped at the necessary angle
gy a brave Tommy, io leaied hack
over the paraet as with a roar the
inearceprated tohmnderstorm hurl
himself into the lists.
Alert, savage andi with his back hair
bristling, Ugly crouched for the
spring--crouched, and then Rat dlown
hard in absoluate amazement; for
there in front of him was his exact,
his~ conmpiete double)1 in size and1( shape
and color. Sergeant Smiler also
crouched and sait dIowansudnly, as
if frozen to the floor. In the silence
whieh follows, tihe breathing of the
two (logs could be heard--jerkily.
like tihe spurts of a southwest squall
Then, with a glad gurgle of canine
melody, the two anlimlals flung them
selves into one anlothler's arms in a
brotherly caress, in which yaps of joy
were mingled withl yelp~s of rem
inliscence, almost tear compelling to
tihe sentimental soldiers gathered
around. For none could fail to readl
Corporal Ugly and Sergeant Smiler
were twins, and1 this was their first
meeting since puppyhood. Truth is
sometimles stranger than flction. This
is a true tale, and the lBritish army is
still laughling over it. A good chuckle
now andl again is a tonic.
