Owing to the fact that it will

We would earnestly advise all
person that have their tobacco
in bulk to look after it closely in
the meantime, as it is apt to damage
as the weather warms up.
Tobacco that is bulked in winter
order, even when bulked apparently
dry, will get very soft
and damage when the weather
gets warm. The best thing to
do when it gets too soft is to
hang it up. The next best is to
take, it up and shake it out and

Evidence of Esteem.
I When Judge Allen W. Bark-

McCracken county last week to
, get ready for his new duties as
Congressman from this district,
the Fiscal Court of this county
presented him with' a beautiful
gold watch as an evidence of
' the high esteem in which he
j was held by that body, with
which he had been associated
i for the past three years.

They are telling a good story
on one of Governor McCreary's
recent appointees to the office of
county judge. The new official,
'according to the tale of his
j friends, went to the courthouse
'and presented himself before

flashing his commission from the
governor, the new appointee
said; "Well here's my commission
and I am ready to be sworn in

The county roads in Critten

Feb. 19th, than we have ever
known them, at least, in recent
years. In fact the roads are
good. The recent heavy rains
and overflows have washed out
some bridges and caused some
few mud holes but nothing like,
is usually the case, in this county
at this season of the year. Commissioner
Wilson hopes to put
what bad places there are, in as
good shape as possible before
the heavy delivery of tobacco
begins, which will probably be

Ulmers, S. C, Feb. 17. -A
novel adventure incident to parcel
post service, involving two
babies and a wooden leg, all
three sent by mail, was reported
here today by Edgar F. Phillips,
a rural mail carrier connected
with the local office.
Phillips, according to his story,
while covering his. route with
two infants and a wooden leg
among his "parcels," was attacked
by a wild cat. For a
moment says the carrier, his
live mail was in danger of being
carried away. Selecting the
wooden leg as the most available
weapon, however, Phillips
so well that he put the wild
cat entirely to rout.
In due time, further reports
the carrier, all three parcels were
delivered at the proper addresses,
