The' nec(essity for such schools

every resource available to be en

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

THE LAST FIGHT OF THE WAR.
Where and when was the last fight
in the War'Between the States? Sev.
tral writers in the Pickens county
pres s have asserted that it took place
in this section about May 1, 1805,
but the weight. of authority is aganst
their contention. In "The Rise and
r all of the . Confederat? Govern
ment," President J)efferson F-ava
"On May 1th, after the last army
vast of the Mississippi had surrer-d
e(l, but before Kirby Smith b;.d
tered into teriwi the (nem en an
expedition from the Br:azo Santi~a
against a little (nfederate ele:.Inm

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

"JONES PRIVATE ARGYMENT"
More than fifty year! ago Sidn y Lanier,
Georgia's honored poet, voiced the attitude of
the cotton farmer" in the following lines:
That air same Jones, which lived in Jones
He hadl this pint about him: a.
'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 p}anter,
And Tennessy was rotton-rich
A-raisin' meat and corn, all which
- Draw'd money to Atl nta.
And the only thing (says Jones),to do
Is, eat rio meat that's boughten,
But tear up every I, 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' spbiutin' many a y'ear,
Proclaimin' loudly far and near
Sich fiddlesticks and blatherin's.
But one all-fired sweaftin'-d(ay,
It happened I was hoein'
My lower corn-field, which it lay
'Laongsidle the road that runs my way,
Whar I can see wvhat's goin'.
A rnd a'ter twelve ('clock had come
I felt a kinder faggin',
Anid laid myself un'neath a plum
To let my dlinner settle sum,

Fur he had tied the lines onto
The staple of the scraper.
The mules they stopped about a rod
From me, andI went to feedin'
'Longside the road, upon the sod,
But Jones (which he had tuck a tod)
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 keels themselves from goin' tew

"More corn! more orn--must plant less ground,
