High Cost of Living.
Ther, is no doubt a colsidera
ble increase in the cost of living,
and it- is onlV just to protest
against it, but we sholId con
sider how 1n1ch11 of it is attrib
itable to our extravagant ways
of living. If we comle right
down to the basis of wvhole
some, utritious eating and
simple and sensible dressing, we
will not find the cost so Iuch
increased as we imagine. The
other day the writer was on the
committee to furnish a dinner
for 100 people, an old soldier
occasion-and the old soldier
- has a good appetite. It wasn't
much of a dinner, but lots of
what there was. The bill 61
4fare was scalloped oysters, bread,
butter, pickles, celery, apple pie
and coffee. It costs 23 cents a
Counting out high priced
meats, and coming down tc
vegetables, cereals, milk, fruits,
etc., a family will find, if they
calculate closely, that the cosi
per individual is only 12 or 1(
cents a meal, unless they are
pretty prodiious eaters. A good
deal of the increased cost of
living comes from the tributt
levied by the trade, all the wvay
from the producer to the con.
sunmer. The latter has to pay
so many people and for so many
modern conveniences, new
fangled wrappers, etc., that the
article gathers cost every day.

9Ity, July 3.4-5,
Theoandpal convention of the
Rural Letter Carriers' Associa
bion of this state, which Is to'be
held in Florence, July 3-4,-5,
promises to be most successful
from every standpoint.
There will be a number of
distinguished guests and speak
ers present, and a most interest
ing and helpful-programme has
been arranged, with supple.
mentary entertainments and so
cial features of a most delightful
and attractive nature.
Thomas M. Wicker, of New
berry, presbdent of the associa
tion, has addressed the following
open letter to the rural carriers
of the state:
"Advices from every section
of the state indicate that the
convention at Florence, July
3-4-5, will be the biggest and
best convention the association
has ever held.
"The business men and the
local carriers at Florence are
making elaborate preparations
for the entertainment of the del
egates, and all visiting carriers.
"A special feature of the en
tertainment wlil be a picnic,
coupled with the famous pine
bark fish stew of the Pee Dee
"Other features of interest
will be a grand parade of the
motorcycle mail riders of the
4.ato, and a rousing,hair-raising
game of baseball between the
R.- F. I.'s of the upper counties
and the R. F. D.'s of the lower
counties. Don't miss the base
ball game if you want to laugh
and grow fat.
"The above has to do with
the social side of the convention;
the business side of the conven
tion will be of considerable in
terest, because of the presence
of a number of distinguished
men, who will take part in the
discussion of questions that will
come before the convention.
"Among those who are ex
pected to be present are U. S.
Senator E. D. Smith, Gov. Cole
L. Blease, Lieut. -Gov. Cha. A.
Smith, F. H. H. Smith, presi
dent of the, State Good Roads
association, a representative
froni the postoffice department;
and an effort is being made to
secure Dr. Platt, of the Univer
sity of North Carolina, who is a
distinguished good roads advo
cite and an orator of national
reputation. I have invited P.
V. McGraw, the fourth assistant
postmaster-general, but I have
not yet been advised whether he
willl conme. I have also sent a
special invitationi to each of the
seven congressmen of the state,
and it is highly probable that
several of these will be present.
"I wish,.in closing, to impress
the carriers of the state with the
importance of this meeting. All
carriers are urged to come,
whether' members of the associ
ation or not-don't forget that.
There is much business of im
portance to be transacted.
Among other things, you must
be prepared to elect a new presi
dent for the ensuing year."

Words cannot express our

who have shared with us the

our loved one. No sweeter

as true may gather around each
