VOLUME XXXV. LAURE~NS, SOUTH CAROLINA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 1919. NME
AUNT KATE SEI
(Continued from Last Week)
We only had a few days in which to
eo a whole lot but I venture to say
we saw as much as anyone could in
the same length of time. There were
two reasons. We knew what we want
ed to see and we had a first rate
guide. Our first objective was the
capitol, of course, and the history and
geography learned at ';Rosedale old
field school came in mighty handy,
.Washingtoln Is a beautiful city-one of
t'he prettiest, if not the most beauti
fil capital in the world-and Is called
the "City of Magniflcent. Distances"
wide and spacious everywhere. Noth
ing mean or crowded here. The city
was laid out 'by a Frenchman and
when that was done Lafayette and
.Washington were here. The streets
'un north and south, and east and
west like a checker board and the
avenues run triangular. When an ave
nue runs Into a street there Is left
a triangular piece of land that, Is al
ways made beautiful with grass and
Ilowers, fountains or statuary. It may
be interesting to tell the childrenl that
the Frenchman had in. mind that these
three-cornered pieces of land would

We rode lp Pennsylvania Avenue,
which is called "The Avenue" (and let
me add here that streets are -lettered
and numbered but the avenues are
named for-the states, and all the
names I heard were the thirteii orig
Inal states. There is a South Carolina
Avenue, but it's not very famous yet
and Oeorgla .\vcnue is also a very
sparsely settled oile. You Hide out
that avenue to the Walter 1'eed Ilos

you direct to the cailtol. We get off
tho street cars at the Peace Moni
men01t, which was erected in menory
"of the heroic defenders of tle na

enough to hold the law-making body
of these United States. W'ilson had
just addressed the Senate a few hours
before we reached the city and the
Senate chamber was deserted. We
looked in at the iempty space?. The
House of Representatives was in
session. ' One iembler was up1 speak

the house, I heard the one word "pro

heard "state statues" so I it two and

making a prohibition speech!
I had only one member pointed out

After we had rested awhile in the
gallery trying to hear the prohibi
tion speech, whenl we went out in the
halls I calmly announced I was going
no further till I saw the "Hall of
Fame". "There is no such place
here," said the gide. Spying a
page before they could stop me, I
pounced upon him and demande he

don' know what you aro Iialking

you there was no such hall here, tri
