Madden, April 3.--"April showers
bring May flowers" and tlui far we
are In the year 1916! Anybody that
has any poetry at all in his soul can
but feel the promptings of the Muse
on a showery April morning. An all
wise and all merciful God sends down
the showers to feed the children of
nien. The somber dress of brown,
which old Mother Nature doned for
the winter, has given place to a call,
restful green, the flowering trees, the
growing grain all point to the harvest.
How little and mean and contemptible
must Ingratitude seem sto Him who
gives -the sunshine and ,rain?
Owing to sickness our 'epresenta
tives of New Prospect school failed to
get to the township contest at Watts
Mill. The little speakers were almost
"Why in the world didn't you come
to the speaking lath night, Maude"
asked a schoolmate who went up ex
pecting to hear and holler for Pros
pect. "I couldn't go, Laurence. I was
sick but tell me would anybody beat
me?" "Grattious no!" he lisped, "there
wathn't anybody there in your clath
at all!" and so the disappointment was
made less severe by a compliment!
Mr. J. A. Wofford was so sick Friday
afternoon that a doctor was sent for.
Upon the suggestion of his physician,
Dr. Teague, Mr. Woftord went to
Greenville Sunday to consult an eye
specialist to see if his violent head
aches were caused by the eye. He car
ried his little boy, Lynt also.
Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Culbertson left
for Anderson Sunday in their car. Mrs.
Culbertson is in hopes her stay with
her mother for a few weeks will be
beneficial to her health. She hasn't
been well in several weeks.
Mr. and Mrs. Iobt. Timmerman
came Sunday for a visit to her mother,
Mrs. Cora Madden.
Mrs. Josie Martin and Miss IlettlIe
Cunningham were the guests Friday
of Mrs. Thomas Finley.
Mrs. .1. It. Finley's eye is thought to
be better and she is getting on very

see their mother, Mrs. i'stelle Daven
port who is in the city hospital, They
stopped awhilie Sunday afternoon to
see their auni, .\Mrs. 'I'. S. ILangston.
Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Dunlap and
Miss Lee Martin of Laurens were
Mrs. Langston's callers also. Friends
of Mrs. Dunlap (and it seems to some
of her schoolmates of long ago that
she has in reality found the fabled
water for which DeSoto sought inas
much as she does not grow old!)
will he interested in knowing that she
is to represent the Laurens chapter D.
A. R. at Washington, D. C. in April.
We wish her a pleasant trip.
The little hoy at my house was de

"1'nele Tonm" saidl Mirs. Dunlap,
"'Nothing could be sweeter than that
tenor you have just played, unless
you sang it. To my way of thinking
I have never heard a sweeter tenor
voice than yours." He gently patted
the old fiddle with one hand and strok
ed his beard with the other, beaming
a complacent smile on me as he made
the remark, "Annie always tells the
old man the truth!" If any of you
readers ever have the chance, get
Uncle Tom to play "Have You" and
listen at the tenor in the chorus
"I have a pardon that frees from all
I have a peace that abideth within;
I have a power that will hell) me win,
Have you? Have you?"
If you love music the memory of
that song will go with you.

* LETTER FROM VOTER,.
* (In Pickens Sentinel.) *
e " " e " e " e" e " e e e" "
What has come over this democratic
state of ours? We thought that the
government belonged to the people,
was run by the people in the interest
of all the people. We thought that ev
ery citizen had a perfect right to run
for any office in the gift of the people
if he desires to do so, provided he had
the wherewithal to defray his part
of the expenses of the campaign? And
yet when a gentleman by the name of
R. A. Cooper of Laurens County at
the earnest solicitation of hundreds of
good citizens and voters of the State
announced that he will be in the race
for Gov. the newspapers raise a howl
and say he ought not to run against
(ov. Manning, that it had been our
custom to give a man a second teIm.
if you strictly adhere to that custom,
is It democracy? Why not go to work
and mlake this o1ice of Gov. I years
instead of 2.
Mr. Cooper has a perfect right, to
ru1n for the ollice. Ile is a mian of law
ful age and under the tongue of good
report, and there are thousands of
voters in the state who believe that
he can, and will be elected, and when
he is Gov. will be as goed a Chief
Magistrate as the Old Palmetto state
or any other state ever had. If Gov.
Manning can make enough voters be
lieve that he ought to have a second
tern we are democrats and are willing
to abide the decision of the people at
the ballot box, but we insist that every
citizen who desires to run for office has
the right to do so. But in the case of
Mr. Cooper he would not have made
this race at this time, but for the
,urgency of his friends all over the
slate, he feels 1like it is in answver to
the call of dutty, and to dischari ge ones
duty is ani honor higher thani to f111
