TIMELY HINTS BY MISS GRISWOLD HOME DEMONSTRATION AGENT “The world stands aside for the woman who knows where she is going.” Does the woman of the South know where she is going today? She does. She is going to stand by her men and her country in the war. She is going to he the prop for the first line of defense. The women are waking up to the fact that food must be pro duced and conserved; that the food supply is a national problem of defense as important a« men and guns, ships and cannons. The people at heme have to eat, the army must eat. This is a self evident fact, “unless we raise and save our food, we go hungry.” Another truth just as plain is; Tho’ this should prove to be a night-mare of war and tho’ we wake up to find the sun beam ing on a peaceful day, we will be richer because of this extra effort for food preparedness. The woman’s part in this great movement is to .see that gardens are planted, planted with plenty of vegetables to eat and to can. This means plant more than you have ever planted before Have “patches” of corn, beans, peas, tomatoes, with kaf fir corn and sunflower “patches” for the chickens. Stop selling the hens and go to setting them. There must be more eggs and chickens than ever before. Go out into ube yard ait! smokehouse, gather up afl the flirty fruit jars, jelly glasses, and ketchup bottles, carefully wash them and put them away where they will not get broken; buy more jars, tops and rubbers and so on as possible. Plan to can and dry enough fruits and vegetables for two families. Save in every way possible. Don’t feed the flies, destroy them and their breeding places. Save by looking carefully af ter the health of the family. This does not mean to dose them up on tonic, but give them nou-1 rishing food and remember that “cleanliness is next to holiness.” I Whatever you do, do not ne glect the garden. Your kidneys deserve the best j treatment—Penslar Buchu and Palmetto, 50c and $1.00 will do the work, only at Hesterly Drug Store. TOWNSHIP ASSESSORS TO EQUALIZE Real and Personal Property In Each Township—Appointed By County Judge. I Following is a list of township assessors to meet with the tax: Assessor and to assist him in equalizing the property if the different townships. D. C. Nichols and John W. Russell, Alabama Township. B. F. Snell and Edward Miller, Albany Township. W. G. Cornelius and T. J. Lamb, Boughton Township. D. B. Turner and T. N. Bolin, Caney Township. C. A. Landers and L. E. Arm strong, Emmet Township. .J. H. Waddle and J. J. Hirst, Georgia Township. W. S. Martin and P. B. Jones, Jackson Township. J. H. Rogers and M. M. Mixon Leake Township. B. H. Logan and O. R. Mc Daniel, .Missouri Township. P. W. Taylor and J. E. Russell Parker Township. L. D. Cox and Geo. YV. De Woodv, Redland Township. Carl Munn and John E. Young, Taylor Township. J. A. Parker and W. R. De Woody, Union Township. As it may be of interest to our readers ho know something more of this new law, we will .-.tate that the law requires that the county judge appoint two citi zens from each township to serve with the tax assessor as an equalization board for that town ship. They are to meet and sit with the assessor and assess all property both real and personal in their township. The law makes it a penalty of twenty- j five dollars for any one so ap pointed by the county judge to I refuse to serve for the time ap l pointed, or fail to meet the as sessor at the stated appointment for his township. All persons] are required to meet this board and render their lists while, they are sitting in their town-1 ship, any failure to do so, a pei - alty of 25 per cent and One dol lar is assessed against delin-I quent. We want to espera,‘.' ' call attention to, that under the I law, you cannot, if you fail to meet the assesor, when he is in your township, come to his of fice at the court house and as sess without paying the penalty as above mentioned. If the law is carried out to the] letter there is no doubt in our mind hue fl at 'twill bean infi ll owmri on the old equaliza-i tiont'o.rd, -*s ir ij reasonable to' suppose that the two men living ji; the Town-.fitj know more as to ttie - a •* real and personal Prescott District Conference.
