Batesburg is on its regular spring
building boom. There is now in
course of erection not less than eight
dwellings, all of which are beyond
the ordinary and two or three promise
to be quite an addition to the
towns residential abodes. The saw
and hammer are to be heard on ev
ery side and building material is
coming into town by the solid car
'n.. Is.
Besides the dwellings are two or
ti.rce large store buildings now in
the course of erection which also
promises to be quite an addition to
the business portion of the little
The strides that Batesburg has
ta';en in the past few years is almost
unprecedented; for what was but a
s r.all hamlet a few years ago is today
a growing, thriving city with
wide awake and energetic business
men making the most of every opp
)rtunity that presents itself. The
t-.wn of Batesburg a few years back
was but a dot on the map. In the
eyes of the business world today it
is the largest point between Columbia
and Augusta from a freight and
passenger standpoint. On the other
hand the town is almost free from
all lawlessness and the whiskey
traffic is a thing of the past. We
have no loafers and every man who
is able to work has an occupation.
Our streets and roads leading to the
main arteries of commerce, (the
Planter) are rapidly oeing
clayed and otherwise improved.
But a year or so ago it was a
burden for four mules to haul three
bales of cotton, the same quantity
now comes to town drawn by half
the number. Batesburg's future is
all that can be wished for, and with
the new enterprises coming in rapidly
she cannot but forge ahead
with the great strides of the twent"
r turv methods.

told of a veiy severe hailstorm

cracked, window panes knocked
out and small farm truck and gardens
were badly damaged. The
area over which the storm passed

Tho young man had a glass eyo,
which was by no moans a perfect
lit, a position In life as assistant to a
grocer In Fulhatn, which was extremely
distasteful to him, and a
passion for a girl called Annie, which
seemed absolutely hopeless. The
young man himself was fully conscious
of tho tragedy of the situation.
Ho knew that It was from
such a furnace as this that tho pure
gold of poetry was extracted. Ho
took to doing a little poetry In his
leisure hours.
It was very much like other poetry;
that la to say. It was neither very
bad nor very good. Tho leisure
hours were limited, and this limited
the supply of the poetry. There was
uot enough for a volume. Perhaps
there never would he. That which
was already written did not entirely
satisfy the young man's nice and
critical taste. Ho would have recast
It again and again if he had the
money. Much meditation on tho
poignancy of this situation led him
to tho decision that when he was
dead, with the green grass growing
over him, after his name, carved In
a simple headstone, should conn* the
effective words, 'Who died unexpressed."
It was some regret to him
that ho could never live to see It.
Most of his poems were addressed
to Annie, who was a practical young
lady. A girl who Is called Annie Is
almost certain to be practical. He
would, without much encouragement
read these poems to her. Then she
would say "Thank you," and look
very doubtful. He did not like tho
look. He went so far as to ask her
If she did not think ho was right In
using tho one talent that heaven had
given him.
"Well, I don't know about that,"
said Annie. "It's nothing to mo, and
you've got to suit yourself. Of
course. It's better that you should
spend your time over this writing
than If you stopped boozing In the
public house all night- same as
some do. My two brothers make pic- i
turo frames In the evening and sell
them, too. It's not for me to advise,
but why don't you try tho picture
frames? Besides, ought you to go
on writing poems about me when
you know perfectly well there's
nothing In It? 1 like you well
enough so far as you go, but If ever
t tn I/n .1 I * ' 11 So ,
In a fur different posit Ion than you.
Just think about that."
At that moment he was extremely
unnnyoft mill linit to tin nulled tip hv
Annie with a sharp Jerk. Afterwards
he did go away and think
uhout It nuH till the wlille he was
position. Annie reeeivoo tne ue>. ,
from liiin in a brief and extremely
business like note. Her mother
agreed that It was clearly her duty
to go round and seo about It. She
would be able to cateh him at the
shop in Fulham on her way to work.
He was not ?t tljo shop, and she was
informed that he had resigned his
post. She had Just time to go on to
hi > lodgings. But he was not there
either. He was at the moment engaged
in the purchase of one of t lie
very hest glass eyes that money
could buy. It was a triumph. He
himself could only tell the difference
between the real eye and the artlilclal
b> shutting first one lid an i then
the oilier. His self-respect grew tiv
Annie, who, as I have said, was<11110'
practical, did not forget that
August was his birthday and sent
hint a pali of slippers which she had
worked \ ith her own hands. SM"
thought the acknowledgment which
she re eived of her gift was a 1??11
loo formal. She was driven so fat
toward desperation that in a ;< :
fectly needless letter of reply >'<<
aske 1 hit i to send iter any poetry
that he had been doii.g lately A I
post card reached her front Margate j
hearing ; ?" simple statement thai
he ha<l not been doing any lately.
Annie's charm had been the charm
of the unattainable. That was gone
now. and his eye showed him that
there were other prettier girls The
other eye. the glass article, was so
complete that he no longer suffered
from any feeling of physical deformity.
ilo was free front the long
hours of work at ?t business whl h
bad never pleased him. He had >
heaps of time to write poetry and to
recast what ho had already written,
and he never wrote a single line.
Jnst once, an he enjoyed his afterluncheon
cigarette, ho did roculi the
simple headstone and the proposed
inscription. "Who died with nothing
to express" occurred to him !
Hut he did not worry about It. He !
had promised to take a girl out on '
the water that afteruoon, a remark- j
ably pretty girl, too. He went In 1
search of her, whistling as ho went.
