the Country.

Ser to protect- the health of the citi
zens of Ware Shoals and in order that.
clean, wholesome milk may be within
reach of every ctitzen of that town of
1,000 inhabitants.
"Our aim Is to protect the health of
our citizens and to take care of our
future citizens," James F. MacEnroe,
treasurer of the Ware Shoals Manu
fgettfring company, explained to a
newspaper man a few days ago." We
lose money on the dairy, but we don't
feel that it is money wasted," he con
tinued, explaining that wagons- deliv
ered pasteurized whole milk to the
homes of Ware Shoals twice each day
at 15 cents per quart.
The Ware Shoals Manufacturing Co.
started its dairy in 1916, and since
that time the herd of thoroughbred
Guernseys has grown from a small
nucleus to 77 cows and five bulls.
Some of the best Guernsey blood in
America flows in the veins of the
Ware Shoals cows. The sire of Grand
Raider, one of the bulls owned by
John McCormack, and is a prized
member of the singer's herd. The
sire of Ultra Select, one of the Ware
Shoals cows, sold for $30,000. The
sire of Administration's Appia sold for
$10,000 before he was born, When
Lallina Gypson was eight years ol'd
she produced eight gallons of milk per
day. She is now 18 and is still pro
ducing four gallons per day, Teksa

other counties of South Carolina in

adults is the gratifylig inforrhatida
disclosed by the report of Miss Will
Lou Grayson, supervisor of this branch
of instruction for the state department
of education. Yorkhad 1,180 adult
pupils during the last scholastic year,
against 1,049 for Spartanburg, York's
earest competitor. York's lead is
more impressive when it Is known that
Spartanburg's white population is
about twice that of York.
Other counties that made a credit
able showing in the number of adult
pupils were: Horry, with 774; Rich
land, 623; Greenville, 607; Colleton,
444; Oconee, 413; Alken, 410; George
town, 409; Greenwood, 381.
The number of schools taught dur
ing the year was 381, with 524 teach
ers employed and an enrollnient of 10,
447, the average attendance being 6,
882. During the year 2,861 pupils were
taught to read and 3028 to write. The
total amount expended by the state
or salaries was $30,394.
According to Miss Gray the results
of the work cannot be shown In cold
statistics but are seen In the more en
lightened citizenship of the pupils,
with their higher aspirations and
Ideals. Her report shows that in 1900
South Carolina's percentage of Illit
eacy was 35.9, against 18.1 today.

Cheter.-It was announced that a
1ew 1.000-loom textile manufacturing
plant will be built at Great ?alls, in
Chester county, shortly. The machin

work will be launched Immediately.
This will give Great Falls Its third
textile manufacturing industry. At
present it has two plants, known as
the- Republic Cotton mills, operating
54,848 spindles and a battery of 1,320
The new plant will be one of the
most modernly equipped textile plants.
When the third mill is completed it
will have a 2,320-loom capacity.
It has been rumored for over a year
that a new mill would be erected and

Farm work moves forward. Grain
is beginning to greet the glad eyes
of all who look out upon the hills.
Truly from a material as well as a
spiritual stand point, "we look to the
hill from whence came our help. Our
help comes from the Lord who made
heaven and earth. We are never more
sure of that than when we look on the
church. Think of the little band of
faithful followers at Bethel, 117, in
number and having raised over $1400
this year for all purposes. The Sun
day school has an enrollment of 160,
grdedx from first to last. It wa.z
mentioned on the Conference floor at
Gaffney as the banner school of the
(dpper South Carolina Conference.
Think of this school with its women
and men ani children and its ladies.

systematie way. The Rev. R. E.
Sharp who has been the pastor of
Fairfield circuit for four years goes
to Prosperity to begin his work in a
new field. He will there preach each
Sunday in one place. He can better
conserve his forces than to be absent
some Sundays.
The Rev. A. Q. Rice will occupy this
field the coming year. He is a charm
ing man of splendid family and will
do a good work here in this charge.
We must cordially commend him +o
the hearts of these Fairfield people.
Now, Mr. Editor, if you will come
down we shall set you up to a nica

We love Fairfield. We love Bethel

Looks like the devil is right around
my place all the time. The hogs have
begun to break out and Beskham 's
sows stay on my oats every Sunday,
and old Grey has learned the combin
ation of the barn lock, and my dog
is -never here -when efe is -needed, and
I can't run after things as well as 1
used to could. If I call my boy to lielp
me he will go to singing of a "hime",
just to tempt me. If I use any "on
becoming" language he will run to the
Stewarts or to the Beckhams and tell
them about it-I don't know what in
the thunder to do. Sometimes I feel
like taking my potatoes and leaving
from about here.
One other source of annoyance is
that Mrs. Mossy Dale has a sister~
who married a preacher. My wife is~
forever saying something about how
good he is and how nice he is to his
wife, so I have to run myself nearly
to eath trying to be good like that
preacher. I low sometimes that I
wish he would forge a check or steal
an automobile or something.
Talking about preachers, M. P.
Robertson said the other day as he
paid his last dollar on preacher's sal
ary-that there are so many causes
to be contributed to that he would
have to stay away from church and
try to serve his God the best he couldj
without a preacher.

Washington.-ReleasS of ! orvgZ
vesseis seized outside the American
three-mile limit with liquor on board,
where there is no evidence of com
munication with the shore by means
of the vessels' own boats, was ordered
by Secretary Mellon.
The order was contained in instruc.
tions sent customs officials at New
York, in connection with the Britisb
auxiliary schooner M. M. Gardner,
seized September 13. According to
the official report, seizure of this ves.
sel was made outside the three-mile
limit, a d while the master admitted
unloading part of the cargo beyond
the three-mile limit, Mr. Mellon ruled
there was no evidence that the vessel
was communicating with the shore by
means of her own boats or equipment.
"Under .these circumistances," thie
secretary's order said, "it is the desire
of the department of justice that all
foreign vessels so seized shall be re
leased, and you will be governed ac.
cordingly. A report should be made
to the department in each instance."

No man feels like rebuking another

And herein is the danger of the so
called "feminist" movement-that
women will become rough and un

On last Friday evening there was
an enthusiastic meeting of the~ Boys'
Club and the Boy Scouts in the Scout
hall. Scoutmaster Gibson and Mr.
Scarborough, principal of the school,
met the boys. The 'interest tin this
work has grown so that it has become
impossible for one man to handle all
of the boys. Mr. Scarborough has a
greed to take over the younger boys ,
while Scoutmaster Gibson carries on
the advanced scout work. Mr. Scar
borough will have about twenty boys
in th~e boys club. Scoutmaster Gib
son has decided that for the present
he can handle only two patrols ot
scouts. As these master their work
and are fitted for leadership anoth- - *
er patrol can be added. A number of -
boys are on the waiting list for this
patrol. Two patrols were definitely
organized last Friday evening. Pa
