The friends of Deacon Hlarris, edi
tor' of The Clinton Chroniele. are sor
ry to learn that lie has been sick for
several weeks andi has not been able
to peroiforin Ili duties as generalIssino
of Clinton's leading newspaper. The
Deacon worted so hard during the Inl
fluenza epidemlie that he forgot to be
troubled withI that disease, but after
it was all over he develoled a few
symptoms of it and got sick anyway.
In his absence the paper has been pih
lished by his loyal force and they have
done well at it. The editor himself is

that our representatives have a law
passed to this effect.
We have visited the county home,
Jail and county chain gangs and are
glad to state that they are all kept in
as good sanitary condition as poss

We are glad to note that the roads
of our county are being scraped and
worked as speedily as possible to be

'recommend that 'the commissioners
appointed and who have in charge the
exi)Cnditure of the funds arising from
the sale of bonds, give due and care
fil emsideration as to the needs of

As to the public schools of the
county we report that they have made

amongst both the teachers ani pupils.
