Madden, Jan. 26.-A very appropri
Ate prog'am was carried out at New
Prospect school on Monday last in
honor of -the -107th birthday of Gen.
14. E. Lee.
Veteran Jno. R. Finley was the
?Npeaker of the occasion and the
thanks of the school, the teachers and
the officers of S. I. A. are given him
far his interesting speech. Though he
*as crippled up by having had his
knee pierced by a thorn a few- days
before, he however, came and re
sponded to his number on the pro
gram--an eulogy on his old and loved
commander, Lee. He closed his
speech by quoting the matchless words
of Ben Hill on the leader of the Con
federacy. Altogether the -afternoon
was -pleasantly and profitably spent by
the scholars, teachers and some of 'the
patrons of the school. Our next event
of local interest will 'be the 17th of
February, when the Clemson contin
gent will arrive to tell the 'pupils and
the fathers and mothers how to -raise
bigger and better crops in this "neck
of the woods."
Miss Ora 'Powers, our champion to
mato grower, will leave today for a
trip to Winthrop. She will be accom
panied by another winner, Miss Mar
garet Dunlap of Laurens, whose piece
in a recent issue of "The State" was
greatly enjoyed. We trust that the
two may have a profitable as well as
pleasant trip to Winthrop.
Owing to the inclement weather on
Saturday afternoon there was no ser
vices at New Prospect-the first time
duch a thing has happened in a num
ber of years. There was however, the
usual services on Sunday morning by
the 'pastor. A very helpful discourse
was given us by 'Bro. Martin. At the
-beginning of the new year, the though
he would have us carry with us during
the days ahead of us, is-that we have
the God of Moses with us and that the
close of the year we should have gain
ed a 'higher plane in religious life
and when the life is over we should
feel as did -Moses when he ascended
Mt. Nebo "that the Everlasting Arms"
are neath us."
Mr. and Mrs. Ed Milam of the Holly
Grove section, Mr. 'and Mrs. Reps Os

The star of accidents was in the
ascendey near Cold Point last week.
Thursday, Mr. Jones C. Nelson was
painfully injured by having a heavy
switch tie fall on his leg. Friday, lit
tle Frank 'James, whose father is em
ployed in the stone quarry at Cold
Point fell off of a high porch on the
'Whedler store land -broke 'both 'his
arms. The little fellow 'is an exceed
ingly bright little fellow and he
showed the courage of a hero in his
-sufferings. It would be a kindly act
if some little boys or girls who are
blessed with a lot of this world's goodls
would send the little fellow some
'toys -to amuse him during the days
of suffering -that are 'ahead of him.
While my mind 4s in Cold Point and
her estimable people, I wish to state
that Mr. J. A. Wofford was called into
a 'hospitalble home there a few days
ago, where there is only a father and
son--widower and bachelor and treat
