thom to tho fullest, but tho little
folks of our neighborhood had their
cups of happiness simply overflowing
Saturday afternoon when little .Miss
Margaret Mitchell entertained with
an Baster party celebrating her fifth
birthday. She received ber guests on
tho lawn, and immediately thc fes
tivities began. It was indeed a most
beautiful sight to soe about LT) little
folks romping over tho spacious
lawn, playing gaines dear to tho
hearts of childhood, swinging in Ibo
shndo of tho trees and bunting eggs
everywhere. Aller thal carno tho
funniest par! of all. They had an
impromptu stunt party of all their
own. Wo wore again carried back to
tbo days of yore when we, too, wore
"kids," and Celt proud of ourselves;
when wo, too, said, with proper
rythm, "I had a little dog. bis name
was Rover; when he died he died all
over." All of this was saving tho
host for tho last, when Mrs. Mitchell
invited them to tho dining room,
whoro tho tables wore lovely in their
Eastor appointments of rabbits and
eggs, and tho usual cake, lighted
with tho mellow light of five little
candles. Here they wore treated with
delicious refreshments, consisting of
ice cream and cake.

Thoro aro many in Oconce who

"Robed in a gown of Oriental

Calivant's Ferry, illorry county, was
last night crowned Queen of Palma
festa of 1922, and so pronounced
tho most beautiful woman in a Stato
renowned for tho 'gallantry and
courage of its men and tho beauty
and charm of Rs women.'
"The coronation ceremony was in
vested with all tho pomp and dignity
common to tho days when knight
hood was in flower, and had some
knights from tho Court of King Ar
Ihus, clad in armor, stepped Into tho
auditorium at tho steel building
when tho gentle maldon of Worry
county was ascending her throne, ho
would have folt that the old days
had indeed returned, and ho would
have boon happy to have paid hom
age to so fair a sovereign.
"The ceremony in sheer stateliness
and beauty of sottiiig surpassed any
thing of the kind seen in South Caro
lina in many years, and was witness
ed by a throng that literally packed

Tho writer was awfully shocked a :
few days ago when* ho learned from j
a reliable source that there were only i
three"" (3T, persrfns In Oconee county
who aro contributing regularly to
tiio Near East Relief.
The question conies to my mind,
What is the cause of this indiffer
ence? And tho answer, We are all
thinking too much of ourselves, our
social enjoyment, our luxuries, our ,
business prospects,, our anxieties of j
various kinds, to entertain a serious .
thought for EVEN THE STARVING.
Friends of Oconee, let's stop and
think seriously for a moment, Just
Uko we wore at tho Judgment Bar*"
of God-and jift as sure as the
Word of Cod is true wo will have to
face these people there.
When we gather those near and
dear to us around the family table,
spread with substantial, sustaining
food, may tho Lord help us to think
of Ills little ones who are STARV
When we lay ourselves down al
night on comfortable beds for rest,
may tho Lord help us to remember
His little ones who aro in rags and
havo not even a shelter to protect
them from exposure.
When wo awake In the morning
and "lind "all ls well," and we look
out upon a promising, peaceful coun
try, may the Lord help us to think
of His little one3 who aro homoless,
without evon a ray of hope for the
future except as lt comes from the
friends of tho Lord Jesus Christ.
Somo of us can do nothing; some
can do but little; otb ora can do
more. However, lot all who can,
come to tho rescue. Wo will feel bet
ter when wo have discharged this
duty-and every day it is TOO LATE
FOR SOME of thom, and the oppor
tunity for us, so far as they aro con
cerned, ls sealed!

The victim was dying when specta

Tho coroner's inquost was hold to

close enough to recognize tho driver
or car number. Efforts of officers to
