EDUCATION WAS THE
ONE CONSTRUCTIVE NOTE
Legislature Just Ended P1assed Severad
Educational Acts. Next in Import
aice was "Lemnon Extract Law."
essoin's Outstanding Fallure was
on Good ionds.
The general lsselll:l)ly, In the ses
slon which has Just closed, accom
plished several outstanding things.
The most momentous piece of con
structive legislation was the compul
sory education act. The greatest
achievements of this session were
along tho-line of education. In addi
tion to the comupulsory school law,
'which requires ill children between
eight and fourteeni to aitteind school at
least four colisecutive months inl a
year, the assemibly enacted logislation
approprilat ilg $.50,000 for vocalilonal
edluicatiol, whclh ilso entitles tie A at( -
to $36,000 of federal aid, and passed ant
act appropriating m1loley for the sup
port of wcak schools, making it pos
sible for thet to have seven months
in a school term. The new Citadel bill
was also passed.
Next in importance to the educa
tion law comes possibly the "lemon
extract bill," prohibiting the sale of
tonics, extracts, toilet articles and
such drugs that contain sufticient al
cohol to cause intoxication.
What has been called the "out
standing error" of the 1919 session
was the failure to pass the good roads
bill. This measure got by the house
and passed the senate, and then when
It was sent back to the house for con
currence in amendments was killed.
This happened on the last day save
one of the session. On the final day
an attempt was made to revive the
-bill, but this, too, proved vain.
The general assembly brought about
several legislative accomplishments
on the negative side. It refused to en
act the bill that provided for the abo
lition of the tax commission. It re
fued to pass a bill to allow the pur
chase of a gallon of whiskey a month
Instead of a quart. Another class of
ldgislation that did not get far along
the channels of legislation were the
measures looking to an eight-hour
working day. There are many mem
bers 'who say this will come next year.
The work hours for fire-fighters were
limited to 81 a week.
Tle legislature passed a State
game law, to take the place of the one
recently declared unconstitutional.
Richland county got a new rural police
system. Several counties were au
thorized to float bonds for road im
provements. The salaries of most
State officers were increased.
In addition to the "new Citadel bill"
The Shot th
providing $100,000 a year for three
rears to erect new buildings for the
3tate military college, a building bill
was passed to atppropriato $100,000
acli for a memorial to the white sol
:lers of the world war and a memorial
to the colored soldiers.

On the 21st of January past, God saw
lit to take from our home our dear hus
band and father. How much we miss
hin--the home is so dark 1without him.
But God giveth and He taketh away,
blessed be the name of the Lord. Ile
will not only be mnissed by his loved
ones but by all who knew him.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vaeant in our liomes
Wh ich never can be filled.
We shall meet, but we shal miss hin,
There will be one vacant chair;
Yet in our aching hearts we know
We have no "Papa" here.
How we miss thee In our home, dear
A shadow o'er our life is cast;
How we miss the sunshine of thy face,
We miss thy kind and 'willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care;
Our home Is so dark without thee,
We miss thee everywhere.
"ris hard to break the tender cord,
Where love has 'bound the heart,
'Tis hard, so hard, to speak the word,
"We must forever part."
Dear loved one, we must leave thee
In the peaceful grave's embrace,
But thy memory will 'erb be cherished
Till we see thy heavenly face.
Wife and Children.

Dear Advertiser Friends:
I am the chief cook and bottle wash
er at this house, so in order to answer
Lhe many queries in regard to the
story recently published in your col
uinas, "Truth is Stranger Than Fic
tion," that has conic to me, I have
decided to tell you friends in this let
ter when and how I heard that Iragic
First, get the Impression off your
minds that the event happened in L,1a
rens county or in South Carolina for
that matter. It did not occur in either.
but the fact reminis it did happen just
as I described.
One day I sat in my home in anoth
er state. it ws a 1 dreary day outside,
bItt tle cerful fire witlhin dispeIled
lhe dampiness and Cold outside. A
stranger in tle place, my mind often
came back to the friends mid the old
red hills of Laurens, "to the friends
of them that's living and the graves
of them that's dead." There came a
gentle kntock at the door and to my
suinunons, T''ome In", there entered a
little woman I had never before seen.
She soon explained, however, that she
was a sister of one of my nearest
neighbors on a visit for a short while.
The children had been over the even
ing before playing and knew that I
was not well, so as it did not suit the
neikhhor to come that morning the
little stranger had come In her place.
The drizzling rain outside had turned
into a down-pour and her call was
lengthened into hours. She was so
refined and cultured and proved to be
charming company. We were soon
chatting like old friends and our con
versation ran from "cabbage to kings".
I should have mentioned at the proper
time that I had heard her sister speak
of her so often and so lovingly that
I felt like I knew her and her chats
always led me to think she 'was a
widow. In the conversation I inno
cently asked law long her husband
had been dead. She hesitated for a
moment and then answered in a voice
of sadness I can never forget, "I wish
I could answer that question. I do
not know whether he is (lead or liv
near as I could remember after 19
years I repeated verbatim to you.
And so when I hear a cold winter
rain fall and dash against the window
panes I see again the face of that
dear little woman with blue, blue eyes,
I sweet, sad face framed by the soft
est bIown hair which the dampness
andSaisd Tan Y
had caused to cluster in ringlcts a
about her face. I hear again that 11
voice full of heart-breaking sadness, l
ais shte reieated the query "Whatever 1
li this world do you suppose did be- 1
come of John?" y
And now I'm going to relate anl ii
CIldent that is not. so tragle, yet it con
cerns a Laurens county man and is
(uite singular. A good many people
of this county 'will remember Preston
11. Allison, who was raised at the Old
Cuiluni nIgliaml) home. He was a Ilirst
cousin of mine and a great favorite
with lle, for as I had no older broIter,
in my childhood days Prews was that
