According to the Raleigh News and
Observer, the state tax commission
has received Information to the ef
fect that there is an organised at
tempt by mill owners to defeat the
taxation amendments to the state
constitution, which are to be voted
on at the general election on Novem
ber second. For this purpoes, it is
said, a large sum of uiouey has been
raised to employ workers at the polls.
If this is true, the women of the
state have their first opportunity to
purify politics. Resent this effort to
debauch the electorate by casting
your vote for the amendments, and
see that your neighbor or friend does
likewise. The adoption of these
amendments Is essential to the suc
cess of the Revaluation act; and they
represent safeguards for the protec
tion of the small tax payers. Per
sons of moderate means would be
foolish to vote otherwise.
The democratic party In this coun
ty has weathered the storms of the
primary, the revaluation act. and the
"county pride" appeal in fine shape.
A registration of about fifteen hun
dred women, eighty per rent of whom
will vote the democratic ticket. Is
forecasted, and the hundreds who
were going to vote for their friend
Mr. John Parker, have dwindled to
cores. Mr. G. S. Lee, chairman o"
the democratic executive co until tie
can safely predict an increased dem
ocratic majority in this county.

by chemical process discover the
source of the sweetness of a rose.
The parade was a tribute to a past

counts the result of mortal efftct. It

It was a marvelous revelation of
the spirit of the "old regime." That

Miss Mary .Marsh, a December bride-
to-be with a miscellaneous shower
Suggestive of the Hallowe'en season
were the Jack o'lanterns. bats, owls,
etc., which were placed about the
room, enhancing the lovely fall flow
ers which were used in abundance
The guests were given cup towels to
hem and Mrs. Graham Hearon
ceived the prize for the neatest work,
box of stationery, which she pre
sented to Miss Marsh. The towels
were also given to Miss Marsh. Little
Frances Stevens Griffin, the two year
old daughter of Mrs. R. L. Griffin
appeared in the door attired in a
cunning Hallowe'en costume, and on
tiny express wagon she was pulling
was an immense express package.
wnirn she inrormed the guests was
for "Mawy." Miss Marsh opened it
and discovered many useful as well
as beautirul gifts. A chicken salad
course and homemade candy were
served. The guests present were

The Amy B. Hackney missionary
society (Juniors) of the Methodist
church celebrated their splendiC
year's work with a Hallowe'en party
Friday evening at the home of their
leader, Mrs. James Harrell. The
spooks and Jack O'lanterns were
present In all their glory to greet the
youthful guests. After a short scrip
ture lesson and the collection of dues,
an old witch appeared in the door
way riding her broom stick, and
asked to tell fortunes. This done
she also consented to tell some ghost
stories. The lights were practically
extinguished only the Jack O'lanterns
being left, and scalps begin to creep
and eyes to bulge as the thrilling
yarns unfolded. After the witches
departed several rousing games were
played to restore the mental equili
brium of the party. Presently they
were Invited into the dining room
which had been lavlshllv decorated
with all the Hallowe'en phareohe-
nalia, and. the ire cream cones which
then appeared seemed the one thing
that had been lacking to make a com
plete whole. Bobbing for sanies and
eating peanuts proved Interesting.
Then a mysterious invitation Into the
side yard was heeded, and there each
of the thirty guests was presented
with a sparkler. These were all set
off at once and the heavens seemed
to open and the stars to fall, midst
the wild, delighted shrieks of the
children. It was the end of a perfect
day In truth.

Hogville, October 25. Zero Peck
tried to build a stove flue this week
and got it so crooked the smoke-re
fused to come out. Quite a crowd
gathered at bia house to watch the
work as it progressed and to suggest
as to the best war to do it. Zero
says there are lota of people who can
tell you how to build a stove flue
most of the suggestions coming from
those who never built oqe. He will
tear the flue down and build it pri
vately next time.
I was in a large city a short time
ago and went into a stylish retaurant
for a meal. The waiter made me re
move my hat when I took a seat at a

table kept her hat on and puffed ci
