You have up to that time to get in with your money and your votes, unless you are be yond reach, under which cir cumstances you can mail to us, and your votes will be counted, if they bear stamp of mailing office conforming to the above date.

Carey, Jr., will have charge of the box after that time, and will count thelvotes by Tuesday, the 4th. t, We have notified every per son on our books. by letter, how they stood, how much money to send in and) how many votes this paymeint would entitle theI to. They will do vell to respond promptly, and not wait until the last moment, and then growl, because they were too late, and the prizes were won by others than the ones they want ed to help to win. 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 plate. 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.

A South Carolina chauffeur disob(eyed orders to put the an tomiobile into the garage, andl went. jov riding with five friends whom he had agreed to meet and (lid me'et at mhidnight in a blind tiger saloon. They smash ed the machine, and have been sentencedl to long terms in prison for criminal conspiracy to use an auto car without the owner's consent. Is there any thing the matter' with that de Nill AssembloMtl'lorence, t*?,Ploge 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 section. "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." "Blue Eyes" Comes Forward.

Words cannot express our appreciation of those friends who have shared with us the lonely vigils by the bedside of our loved one. No sweeter llellorYV cani live in any heart than the memory of their untir ing devotion to the one who has just left us.
