THE BIG DRIVE.
Seven organizations are united ii

be upon us almost as soon as we ge

of the way.
These seven organizations hav<
proved their right to our support b)
certain very definite work for thi
American troops at hone and abroad
Some of these we know quite well.
The Y. M. C. A., Knights of Coluim
bus, and the Salvation Army are per
haps the best known of the lot. Their
very (lefinite and tremendously jim
portant work for our boys is known
to ill of us.
The Y. M. C. .\. Is don a great
work for girls w%'ho are affected by
war-conditions, and for the boys,
too, through the establishment of
Ilostess Houses at the great canton
ments. The work of the Y. M. C. A.
dieserves Careful study.
The Jewish War Relief Association
oceupies the samie )osition relatively
as the Y. M. C. A. and Knights of
Columbus. It is doing ani excellent
work amonig, our soldiers of Jewish
faith anl works in utmost harmony
with the two organizations just men
The American Library Association
has unlertaken to furnish books and
periodicals for our soldiers in train
ing, on shipboard, and overseas. This
is a huge task, as anyone can readily
e', aid every cent, this organization
receives will be well spent. Good
books and mnagazinles help wonderful
ly towa r(d keeping up a man's morale.
The War Camp Community Ser

are located, aril this, too, is an im

TO THE MEMORY OF MRS. MARY.
1t seems fittinig that a tribute to
the miemory. of Mrts. Mary Brazecale
Bradley hie pulilshe.d in The P'ickens
Setintel, which was once so ably ed
itedl by hier dist inguishedo husband,
Ifont. I). F. Bradley.
Hecr girlhood anid ear'ly married
life was spe'nt in Pickens county-a
ntumber' of yearis in the town of Pick
enis. From there she moved1 to Colum
bia where Maj. Bradley held a gov
ernnment potsitionl for several years.
T'he last few years of his life, they
spent in Easley, where she continued
to resid.e after his deoath.
Hecr last years were peculiarly sad
and lonely, as she never ceased to
mourn the (death of her husband, to
whom she had clumnr with more than
ordinary dhevotion. Books and travel
helped in a umeasure to fill up the
void in her life. Faithful and true to
the friends she loved, her going away
3qill make her presence sadly missed
by them. It is generally deplored that
her. death came. in so tragic a man
ner, A&nd grieve .that her passing was
so Aintimely, but we know there was
a. wise'fpurpose in it, for "God doeth
nll things well."
A. .(aithful member of the Presby -
ternan church, she died in that faith
and is now sleeping the "sleep of thn'
Just." "Rlequiescat in pace-" *M.
