One of the most interesting meet
ings of the year was held at the home
of Mrs. II. H. Sanders on Wednes
The occasion was the celebration
of the birthday of Mrs. Lillian Ste
vens, and a very interesting drill
on parliamentary usage conducted
by Mrs. Tillman, superintendent of
that department.
After devotions by Mrs. Peak,
business was attended to and the
place ol the reception in honor of
the most model member was an
nounced. This will take place with
Miss Eliza Mims on March 30, the
most model member in the recent
contest being the guest of honor.
At the beginning of the meeting
each subscriber to the Union Signa!
was called upon to give some incl

sult of whiol) three new subscribers
were gained.
Mitchell Wells read a little story
of Mrs. Stevens' childhood, called
Lillian's Flag." Mitchell was the
only one who received applause and
he is a gifted reader.
Mrs. Mims read a short sketch of
Mrs. Stevens' life.
Mrs. Townsend reported a pocket
for literature place! at the depot
and called for good reading matter
j^to place there. She is now the effi
cient superintendent of the local
literature department.
Perhaps the most interesting and
unique feature of the meeting was a
parliamentary drill in which a num
ber of ladies took part, among j
them Mrs. L. T. Mav, Miss Hunter, j
Mrs. B. Timmons, Mrs. E. P. |
Jones, Mrs. YV. E. Lott, Mrs. W.

Edenfield people who bought the
simple mixture of buckthorn bark,

effect of a SINGLE SPOONFUL.
This remedy is so complete a bowel

in appendicitis. Adler-i-ka acts on

Persons will wonder just how the
organization happened to adopt such
a name, and the answer is given by
Col. Sanford H. Cohen, manager of
the Atsugua Association, who says
that Atsugua was the name of au
Indian princess that lived here
about when the first white settlers
came, and the colonist* spelled her
name backwards, and it spelled
Augusta. The popular belief is
that Augusta was named for
princess of the reigning family
in England, and tbiii is probably
true, but Cohen insists on his Indian
