been missing for two weeks, and Mrs.
Burroughs fears for her husband's
safety. Burrowes is stout, about .">
foot, 5 or f. inches in height, lins but
ono eye, and plies his trade as a
monder of umbrellas. Ho has been
making short trips from homo re
cently, repairing umbrellas and do
ing oilier .Jack-of-all-trades* work,
always returning home. This time,
however, he has been away for two
weeks and his wife feels great anx
iety over his disappearance. Any in
formation as lo Mr. Burrowes where
abouts will be appreciated." The Mr.
Burrowes referred to was a familiar
figure in Walhalla, where he had es
tablished quite a reputation for his
splendid work and straightforward
dealing. It has not been more than
a few weeks ago that he stopped in

Important Factors in the Campaign
Against I ll i ferney.
We are about to enter into one of
i the most important campaigns
I against illiteracy that has ever been
j waged in Coonee comity. Miss Noll
Hines, of Seneca, has been s-ecured
as supervisor and organizer of this
work. Miss Wil Lott (?ray, tho State
organizer, has consented to aid Miss
Hines for ten days, beginning Fri
day, .Inly 15th. We are very anx
ious that everybody who is inter
ested in the education of our people
take a part in this work. Your in
fluence will be a great help. Some
of our best men and women are not
able to write legibly or read intelli
gently. There is no reason why theFo
men and women should not learn
now, since they failed fo have
an opportunity lo go to school
when they were younger.
I had the pleasure of visiting an
adult school while in Greenville a
few days ago. H. was an inspiration
to hear an old man there-over 50
years old-read and spell, when a
few months before ho could do nei
ther. Ile told us that it certainly was
a great comfort to him to bo able to
read lils Bible; tl ; ho had always
wanted to road, but Just never had
any one to encourage him in trying
Now, let us all encourage this
work and make it a success. Shall
wo not depend on all tho people of
Oconeo county to aid us In this work?
