After leaving the Hickory Tavern
display which we noted in last issue,
'Wo passed on to the individual dis
plays exhibited by Laurens county wo
men. The display by Mesdames Grov
er Roter of the liabun neighborhood
and Mary Allison of Newt Prospect
were splendid. If I mistake not I
think the best pickle was by Miss Ora
Powers, who Is a niece of Aunt Mary,
and is followitg in the footsteps of
her excellent aunt, who has been a
mother to her.
Some folks say there is nothing
much (o demnons;t ration work but there
is. Compare the quality of the fruit
and vegetables canned now with those
of former years, and see how very su
prolor the present diay ones are. And
the question very naturally arises:
l not this perfection in ennning the
result of demonstration work?
Time nor space will permit it de
teription of the many and various
pieces of handiwork of the women, and l
1 was not so fortunate as Mrs. Den
nett whose face was all wreathed with
smiles as she sam11pled the various edi
bles of display. But from the looks
of the articles In question and the
smile on the pudge's face I feJ1 assured
they too were pronounced good!
Trust the women to cram as much
work in one day a sthe next bne!
While still pushing and viewing and
shaking hands with the good folks of
the county--fron Durbin and Dials
and I kom and Waterloo the hour
Cane for a meeting of the Rural Im
provemuent association where Miss
Workman of the Laurens normal
school was to meet the women of the
county and try to pass on her enthus
ifsn to them. Only a few were pres
ent and right here may I digress a lit
tle and lambast somebody?
To be absolutely honest though I
doi't know just who to hit at! May
he our representatives in the legisla
ture could shed a little light therign.
Anyhow 'I'll relieve my mind and at
the samve time be spokesman for a
large portion of the thinking women
of our county.
The question we would like to have
answered is whose fault is It that we
have no rural school supervisor? Wit
Lion Gray did splendid pioneer work
in "Laurens county and just as tlhe
work got started the sinews of war
are cut off and there you are! We
lid Just gotten organized and a faint
glimmering of how much could be ac
complished by the Rural School asso
ciallon and the work fails for the
want of leadership. MIrs. Flerson was
not in the work long enough in this
county and not. knowign the field she
was handleapped. -Miss Workman is
perfectly capable, also, but she
hasn't the time. 'It was a step back
ward when that oflice was abolished
and all that can hoped to be done is
to keep the organization together till
the pliace Is .a.e possible agaIn.

about old 'Bushl iveyr In Newborry
county. "You ought to' see old Bush81

not HI. Terry hlave the cup of hoet coffee
which he0 always shuare with miof True
to ht~s custom he sent .word otit that
theO coffee was readly and on occasions
like thyut a cup of coffee suffices and
is all I want, 20 he and I together
drank to each others health-he In
at tli dipper and I as guest of honor
in a big thick cup-here's hop
ing we may drink again next fair day.
The day Was. drawing to a clos'
when -I wandered in upon the faithful
women a ho are -known as R l Cross
workers. There was the note of sad
ness in the day of pleasure-tht, re
minder of the war upon which we have
entered. Here were the fruit of their
hands--the warm sweaters, tli: com
fortable socks, the cloth that Ih' to be
made up for the stricken Belgians,
warda.'of the world. The ray-; of the
evening sun, for the day that had
entered so unlikely was drawing to a
beautiful close, fell upon the faces of
Laurens county folks. The l-ist piece
to be Oilayed by the sand was our own
national hymn, "Star Spangled Ban
ner". We didn't stand at "attention'
as', we ourht, but :till a- its strais
reached lour ears the lre of pa triot
ism filled each heart. IT:)ve of coltm
try, I believe biris fierce anld -trong
in the hearits o' American peopile-and
when the call comes for u1s to do "our
hit," whether it was to make a oily
garden and men like Dunk Watts
'ent out and planted even so plebian
a vegetable as a collard-whether it
is buy a Liberty Bond, conserve food,
help Red Cross, contribute to Y. M. C.
A. work, we are there with the goods.
Patriotism is not confined to sex and
when the strans of that loved hymn
came to my ears that choky feeling
one has came to me and I burlied my
head in tears. Calm and peaceful the
scene before us-the cackling of geese
and chickens, the fruit of the farms
piled high about. us-and yet it came
to us that "over yonder somewhere in
France" our flag flies over t ronches
where shot and shell scream. Back
here at home there is it stiffening of
the back, bone as calmly and deliber
ately we go about fighting this war to
a fliish. The eyes and the hopes of
civiliztytion are upon that sacred ban
ner. Dep clown in our souls we know
ti hlt flag shall wave in triumph but,
before that glorious hour, the fair
young faces of many of our own loved
boys will lie stilled, gazing upward.
Our tears fall, our hearts break but
God help us, there is no other way.
