DOW IN GREENWOOID
Local Veteran Contributes to Rotary
Luncheon In Greenwood When Vet.
eran vere 1Eitertained.
Warren Stribling, local Confederate
veteran and "Old . Time Fiddler,"
-played his way into the hearts of the
G reen wood, Rotarians and their guests
last Tuesday night :when the Gireen
-wood veterans were guests of the Ro
tary Club on Alemorial Day. Veteran
Stribling, who was visiting in Green
wood at the time, was included among
the guests and "added a new and
opleasing feature to the program," ac
cording to Tle 'Index-Journal, #which
gave an account of the luncheon the
following morning, asfollows:
About forty Confederate veterans
were guests of honor at yesterday's bi
monthly luncheon of the Greenwood
Rotary Club and it was the unani
mous opinion of the old boys that they
hadi a roya'l good time at the hands of
the younger boys of the Rotary Club.
They enjoyed to the full a bountiful
dinner served by the Robert A. WNaller
Chapter, 1-. D. C., and as President S.
C. Hodges, of tle club, suggested to
.them, they felt sure that if they had
had a commissary like that which sup
Plied Yesterday's meal the result, of
the war would have been vastly differ
ent. Young ladies froiji Lander Col
loge added greatly to the pleasure of
the guests by their songs, one of
which was a special song written .by
Mrs. John 0. Wilson for the occasion.
President HIodgc thoughtfully han
Presented a real old-time fiddler in the
person of Veteran Warren Stribling,
of Laurens. Mr. Stribling played be
fore the dinner and had some of the
staid matrons of the U. D. C. shaking
the wicked foot in spite of themselves
at the moving strains of Turkey in the
Straw, Arkansas Traveler, and so on
-not omitting the well known tune
about something that broke loose in
Georgia. Mr. Striblin-g added a new
and pleasing feature to the program.
Three long tables were 1sed for the
guests and members of the cml). Sev
en boys from the tenth and eleventh
grades of the Greenwood H1igh School
were guests also, these being the last
quota of boys from the high school,
who have been guests of the Rotarians
at luncheons. The veterans were
placed at one of the tables, the lo
tarians using the other two together
with the high school boys and the
young ladies of Lander College.
After the fine meal President 110d
ges announced that there t-ould be
four short talks by members of the
Rotary Club, seven minutes limit, and
each one of the four speakers rose to
the occasion.. These short talks were
gems, each one of them.

Perfume at $90 Per Ounce.
The harvest of Bavarin roses for
last year, being one of the worst on
record, the price of the essence has
gone up very considerably. The
wholesale price juist now is round
aboeut $20 an ounce. Before. the war
it was $7. Contrary to popular be
lief, however, attar of roses is by no
means the most expensive scent on
the market. Civet 'is W~omth Wvholesale
just now $25 an ounce, ta~d musk $90;
ambergris, which forrpms the basis for
nearly alt the best quality scents,
costs $00 an ounce, and is hard to get
at that. These prices refer, in the
case of perfumes to the essential oils,
one or two drops of wvhich wvili make
qluite a decent-sized bottle of scent.
Only dealers in precious stones carry
more valuable stock in a small space
thani the dealers in these highly-con
centrated essential oils. A quite mnod
erate-sized safo in the oflice of a firm
of wvholesale perimers will frequent.
ly contain stock worth $125,000.
Hawaiian Volcano Active.
The great volcano, Kllauea, 32 miles
from lillo, Hawaii, which .for two
years has been exhibiting tremendous
volcanic force, recently overflowed the
rim 'i of its active throat andl burst
forth in fresh activity andl brilliance.
After weeks of Stehdly rising of the
lava in the pit 'of Ianlemaumnu, the
"Ilouse of ire," the molten column
recached the rim and pouredl over it
toward the southeast side of thme great
crater, while simultaneously another
lava stream burst through the crater
floor seome distance from the first,
IHundreds of fire fountains began play
ing on the numerous lava lakds and
sheets of flame gushed intermittently
from beneath the crust surface.
Along the main lne of the 01(1 rift
whleh thme newv flow is following, sev
eral lava cones of small craters have
formed andI these add to the weird
scenes with their thundering blasts of
steam and fire.
"Did you ever see that good old
play, 'Ten Nights in a Barroom'?"
-"No," answered Cactus Joe. "Il
didn't like the title. It wasn't true
to human nature. ,I never knew a
man with money enough to last ten
nights and I never heard of a bar
tender who would let him hang around
after lie was broke."
