No Argument Against System.
There is no sane argument against
tho co-operative system of selling
farm products. There ls every argu
ment for it, chief among these being
tho absolute success of co-operative
marketing as demonstrated in Cali
fornia among fruits and in Oklahoma
and Texas with cotton. >A debater

* of "Commerce and Finance," of New

could he used against Ibo formation

hy telling the debater that there was
but one side to the question, and that
?> was the affirmative side. Ho further

Q00 bales, based on 1920 production,
was exceeded by 40,000 bales. Co
operative marketing is now "the big

Carolina has no fear of not getting
her quota. Geo. R. Briggs, .

Tho weather is at last favorable to

A delightful social entertainment

deavor social held Saturday evening I
nt the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. T.

were served after various amuse
ments were engaged in.
Prank L. "Pickett, of Rockingham,
N. C., was a guest of his sister, Mrs.
W. D. Wright the first of tho week.
Mr. and Mrs. 0. "H. Doyle, of An

Tho B.Y.P.U will bo ehtertained

Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Wilson visited

Y. Norton, near Walhalla, the week
The "Gypsy Smith Circle" will
meet next Friday afternoon with Mrs
'Dean Davis.
Jasper Doyle was quito indisposed
for several days last week, but is
able to be out again.
?Hon. and Mrs. John L. Smith, of
Seneca, attended tho closing exer
cises of our school Friday.
Our school closed a most success
ful term last Friday afternoon with
quite an interesting program, The
exeroises were Jn keeping with the
/observance' or Carolina uPay.^flinceA
tirirlttrt^ rahv<r fi??'iToW^r^l^o
date on which the school closed, and
were enjoyed by.quite a number of
the community people. Both teach
ors and pupils acquitted themselves
with remarkable credit. Indeed, the
program and Its rendition would re
flect honor to an Institution of far
greater pr?tentions than old Bounty
Land assumes, although Capt. S. K.
Dendy, In bis much appreciated talk,
made the assertion that the two com
munities of Bounty Land and Rich
land had turned out moro profes
sional men and women than any
other section of tho county, and Capt
Dendy ought to know, since he is
one of three pupils now living who
attended tho first school ever taught
at Bounty Land, which was In 1852.
The other two pupils aro Thomas
Handy Stribllng, of dreenwood, and
Mrs. Mary Biggerstaff, of Fair Play.
This school was taught by the late
Col. E. R. Doyle, father of .Mrs. Julia
Dovlo Shan kiln.
Mr. Dendy, in his remarks, said
that the school boy satchels are a
great deal heavier now than they
wero then, which probably accounts
for tho fact that children are not so
thoroughly drilled in tho studies
which were taught in thoso days, and
naming somo of our distinguished
"Carolinians, he told tho audience
of the great impression made on his
mind when ho heard of the death of
our groat John C. Calhoun and saw
tho old Keowce Courier bordered in
black, in unite significance of tho
great loss foll at his death.
Capt. Dendy gave an interesting
account of tho stirring times of '7(1.
when (len. Wade Hampton was elect
ed, and tho establishment of white
supremacy in South Carolina. This
wi? both Interesting and instructive
to Ibo pupils and visitors present.
Mr. Dendy's talk was not first on
tbr> program. Wo hope to send tho
entire program, including an inspir
ing talk by the prineip. i of school,
Miss Lalla Rallonger, in which she
gave an Interesting compilation of
lin' many great forward movements
in which South Carolina was fore
most, all of which inspired tho audi
ence with a feeling of pride in being
South Carolinians.
Thc welcomo address was modest
ly given by little Miss Lue y Both
McDonald. Tho program consisted
of songs, recitations, readings mid
drills. A drill by half dozen small
boya, dressod as Revolutionary sol
dlors, deserves special mention, and
shows the skill and painstaking of
tho teacher, Miss Carrie McMah.m.
The closing address, by Supt. of
Education L. C. Speares, was good.
Mr. Speeres' subject was "Future
Citizenship.' He stressed tho asser
tion that no nation, State or county
or community is any bottor than its
citizons, and that if ono man in a
community goes wrong tho entire
community suffors. That difficulties
in a school or community aro gen
erally the result of misunderstand
ing and lack of co-operation.
Misses Ballanger and McMahan
have accepted the school for another
year, and Bounty iLand trustees are
to be congratulated on securing tholr
services again.

Tribute from A. G. Gower.
The following beautiful tribute to
the memory of Mr. McCollough was
paid by A. G. Gower, a Greenville
Edward H. McCollough.
It was my privilege to often see
Mr. McCollough, as he lay on his bed
of suffering at the UnU.od Statos Pub
lic Health Service 'Hospital, and al
ways 1 carried away tho impression
of "tho gentleman unafraid" as I
left the pr?sence of his bright smilo
nd genial personality. ,
Kven after the power of speech
was denied him and the ability to
lake sustenance in the ordinary way
gone, and physical strength fast wan
ing, tho winsome smile and the
warm hand-clasp wore still there.
'Far beyond tho age limit of mili
tary service, but because he had the
mental training that his country so
greatly needed, the physical ability
to render it, and a willingness to
serve, ho was accepted.
Mr. McCollough went to the Mexi
can border, thence with the Rainbow
Division to Franco, enduring all the
hardships of the service, doing faith
fully his "bit" to win tho war.
After tho armistice another fight
s begun, the cons?quences of Gor
man gas taken root, and with gmll
?? courage tho arch enemy this in
troduces i ; met ami laced bravely to
Many men are making the samo

the V. S. I', ll. S. Hospital as bravely
and as smiling as he.

Eduard H. McCollough
was well known in Walhalla, where
be had spent a number of years ns
resident and citizen. For some ten
or twelve years he lived hero with
his family and that of his venerable
falber, who was thou rector of St.
John's F.piscopal church, Walhalla.
Ile was always genial and a gentle
man withal, lie had his faults, but
ho was a man, a manly man, who
did not stoop to low deeds of any
kind. And he had his friends wher
ever he went. They wore numbered
by his acquaintances. At his passing
thoro are many who will feel that
friend and gentleman has passed out |
from among thom.
Mr. McCollough is survived by
several brothers and sisters and nu
merous olhor relatives, among thom
being Mrs. H. H. Legare, of Wal
halla, and Miss Ida McCollough, of
Great Falls, this Stato, sisters; and
Mrs. Geo. M. Ansel, of Walhalla, a
