OLD HICKORY REUNION The Old Hickory (30) Division Association which recently opened headquarters at Georgetown, S. C, announces a change in the date of the first reunion to be he held at Greenville, S. C. The original date set lor the first reunion was Sep tember 28th-?.9th, but because of the fact that September 28th will be Sunday the date has been chang ed to September 29th to 30th, the anniversary of the breaking of the great Hindenburg line by the 30th Division, American E. F. The committee on organization composed of General L. D. Tyson, of Knoxville, Tennessee, Colonel Holmes B. Springs, of Georgetown, and Colonel Albert Cox of Raleigh, met at Raleigh on May 24th and selected Greenville as the city for the first reunion, and selected Sep tember 29th-30th as the date there for. This association was organized at Le Mans (Sarthe.) France, just prior to the return of the Division tu the United States, and was the first organization of its kind to be formed among the United States forces in France. Col. Springs was chosen as temporary Chairman of the organization, and Frank ?. Bowen, of Knoxville, Term... Secretary-Treasurer. Mr. Bowen opened headquarters at Georgetown with approximately 20,000 members, and states that at the end of the publicity campaign which will shortly be inaugurated he hopod to have at least 30,000. The Old Hickory Division composed chiefly of men from Tennessee, North and South Carolina, sailed from New York on May 11, 1918. with approximately 27,000 officers and men, but owing to the heavy casualties suffered at Jie breaking of the strongest defense of the ene my, the division received at least fifty per cent replacements which would bring the total membership of the division to approximately 45,000 The place selected for the first reunion was the original training camp of the SOth Division in the United States. Greenville is a beautiful city with a population t'f approximately 30,000 located in the Southern Railway System and is amply able to take care of the many thousands expected at the convention. Officers and men of the division who fought together throughout the bloodiest days of the war together with their wives, mothers and sweethearts, are ex ed to meet at the first convention and renew the friendships and ac quaintances so long enjoyed in training camp in the United States and in the American Expeditionary Forces in Belgium and France. All officers and men who have pt any time served with the divis ion, either in the United States or "broad, are eligible for member ship in the association. All mem hers of the division are urged to make application at the earlist pos sible moment for membership in he association, addressing the ap plication to the secretary at George town, S. C, accompanying same with fifty cents to cover member ship fees from now until the first convention Those who have already become members of the .association will shortly receive membership cards and other information relative to the association and its first reunion, and headquarters at Georgetown will be open at al! times to its members for any other information desired b y them County papers please copy. LIVESTOCK PR West Raleigh, N. C.July At the Annual meeting of the North Caro lina Commercial Secretaries Asso ciation, held in Wilson on July 8, the promotion of the livestock in dustry in North Carolina was highly endorsed. According to Mr. R. S. Curtis, Animal Husbandman, of the Agricultural Experiment Station, the announcement of this endorse ment by the Association should be of much interest to all livestock growers. NOW IS THE TIME TO BUILD Building has been almost at a stand-still since the beginning of the European War. This was brought about because of the high price of lumber, scarcity of labor and the high price of various things that entered into the construction of buildings. The time has now come to get busy on the building proposi tion again, the sooner the better. There is no use to Wait for low prices because it is doubtful if we ever get back to the price levels that existed before the war. Other thing are going to stay com paratively high as long as farm produce remains high and certainly all of us want to get ail we can for what is produced on our farms. So let's forget about this proposition of waiting for lumber to go down to bui'd. It has been estimated that the next ten years will see practic al! of the pine lumber in the South cut out and I would not be at ail surprised to see lumber go up in stead cf down. Therefore, go ahead with the building as needed. It is a good business policy to do this. The Progressive Farmer. REDEMPTION PRIVILEGE m WAR STAMPS EXTENDED Washington, D.

To prevent fruits from becoming discolored plunge into cold water until ready for use but be careful not to allow to remain in water long enough to change flavor. STRING BEANS. To can string! beans select those that are young and tender and few strings. The Stringless Green Pod is a good varie ty. Be very careful to grade beans and always can the same day they are gathered. In canning always make your motto "straight from the vine to the can." This insures ster- iiization in one day's cooking while if stale or mature beans makes the three days' process necessary, Remove strings from beans, snap if desired, put in a thin cotton bag and plunge into boiling water for 3 to five minutes, and then into cola, lms removes certain acids and makes the flavor of beans bet ter. Pack into sterilized jars to 1-4 inch of top and fill with hot water, add one level teaspoonful of salt (instead of hot water and salt, a brine may be used: one gallon cf water and d-4 cups of salt. This is best when canning in large quanti ties as it takes up less time.) Seal lightly process quart jars 1 hour and 15 mihutes. Seal tightly. Be careful not to set hot glass jars in a breeze or on a cold table top. "RAT-SNAP BEATS THE BEST TRAP EVER MADE," MRS. EMILY SHAW SAYS "My husband bought $2 trap. I bought a 50c box of RAT-SNAP.

Mr. Brammer had a smile all over his face, he said he was delighted to see so many people out and to see them so interested. The writer is just 50-50 with Mr. Bram mer on community Fairs. I think it will be the best thing ever gotten up in Western North Carolina, if they are carried out in the way they should be. Community Fairs will arouse an interest in every thing. Mr. Johnson will try to raise finer stock than Mr. Jones, and Mr. B will try to raise liner stock than any body, and thereby every body will be raising fine stock and in a few years our country will be fill ed with fine stock. Community Fairs will not only be a great help to raising fiiier sto3k of all kinds but it will be one of the greatest helps along the Une of education ever known. Every school should get in terested. There are four different schools in Caney Fork township. Every school should make an effort i to see which one can make the hest record. Boys and girls from every sciiool should draw maps and all kinds of drawing, see who can beat writing, we should have spelling matches between the various schools at the community Fairs, and many other things which will interest the boys and girls. Will write more about community Fairs next time. Miss Winnie Hoop sr of this place went to New port News, Va., last week. Miss Hooper was from there going out to Virginia Beach to see the Atlantic.

The best doctors treated me for months without giv ing me any relief. After making a complete failure of my case they told me the nerves and muscles of my legs were so diseased that I could never be cured. One of my legs at this time had perished away to half its natural size; I then took all the guaranteed remedies that I cuuiu near oi wimout getting the f . ..i .... . slightest relief.
