By taking advantage of this oppot
industrial endeavors are opened to
our men and women who now find
themselves handicapped by the lack
of early training.
Daring the next two months we
are going to thoroughly organize
every school district so that - every
part of our country will be able to
conduct an interesting and instruct
ive adult or lay-by school. We want
every resource available to be en
listed- against illiteracy. Let each
district have for its work the solici
tation of every person over fourteen
years of age who has not completed
the fifth grade work of our public
schools. The most effective method
of accomplishing this is to make per
sonal appeals to those who should at
tend these schools. Let our patriot
ism prove itself by earnest efforts in
working for these schools.
It is time for the trustees of the
d:ff.ore'nt districts to begin their plans
fk'r ,tl.ir adult schools. Let this be
a personal a;:pal to every trustee
fer their best efforts in organizing
their ..schools. Let each of us work

THE LAST FIGHT OF THE WAR.
Where and when was the last fight
in the War'Between the States? Sev
'Lra.l wrifers in the Pickens county
rress have asserted that it took place
in this section about May 1, 1865,
but the weight. of authority is gafint
th-ir contention. In "The Ripe and
zall of the . Confederate Govern
ment," President Jefferson Vl'iv
"On May 1 th, after the last a ry'.
east of the Mississipri had surre:d'
ied, but. before Kirby Smith h.d

expedition from the IBrazo. Siant

aT vc against it and drove it hack
with co:nsid(rable loss, sustaining
r very little injury to his command.
This was, I believe, the last .armed
- conflict of the war, and, tho very
small in comparison to its great bat
ties, it deserves notice as having
closed the long struggle, as it opened,
with a Confederate victory."
According to the Chief Magistrate
of the Confederacy, then, the last
combat was in Texas, more than a
month after the surrender of "Lee's
Miserables" at Appomattox and more
than 'a week after the final firing in
S uth Carolina.

"JONES PRIVATE ARGYMENT"
More than fifty yearn ago Sidney Lanier,
(corgia's honored poet, voiced the attitude of
the cotton farmers in the following lines:
That air same Jones, which lived in Jones,
He had this pint about him:
'He'd swear with a .hundred sighs and groans,
That farmers must stop gittin loans,
And git along without 'em.
That bankers, warehousemen, and sich
Was fatt'nin' on the planter,
And Tennessy was rotton-rich
A-raisin' meat and corn, all which
- Draw'd money to Atlanta.
And the only thing (says Jones).to do
Is, eat no meat that's boughten,
But tear up every 1, 0, U,
And plant all corn and !swear for true
To quit a'raisin' cotton!
Thus spouted Jones*(whar folks could hear,
At court and other gatherin's),
And thus kep' spoutin' many a y'ear,
Pr'oclaimin' loudly far and near
Sich fiddlesticks anid blatherin's.
But one all-fired sweatin'-day,
It happened I was hoein'
My lower corn-field, which it lay
'Longside the road that runs my way.
Whar I can see what's goin'.
And a'ter twelve o'clock had come
I felt a kinder faggin',
And laid myself un'neath a plum
To let. my dlinner settle sum,
When 'long come Jones's wvaggin.
A nd Jones was sittin' in it, so,
A-readin' of a paper.
His mules was goin' powerful slow,
Fur he had tied the lines onto
The staple of the scraper.
The mules they stopped about a rod
From me, and went to feedini'
'Longside the road, upon the sod,
But Jones (which he had tuck a tod1)
Not knowin', kept a-readin'.
And presently says he: "Hit's true
That Clisby's head is level.
Thar's one thing farmers all must do,
To keep 'hemselves from goin' tew'
Bankruptcy and the dlevil!
"More corn! mnore corn--must plant less ground,
And mustn't eat what's boughten!
Next year they'll (10 it: reasonin' soundl
(A nd cotton will fetch 'bout a dlollar a pound),
Tharfore, I'll plant all cotton!"
--'Macon. Ge(>:gia, 1 870.
