We have recently heard Borne of our old people say that winter war. not as cold now as.lt was years ago, but we think the last few days will equal anything within their recoll?e- ] tion. Farm work has been at a standstill for several days, but our farmers cer-1 tainly made good use of what time they have had suitable for plowing, many of them having hal fthelr crops for another year ready for the putting In of manure. We hear many say that they will not use a pound of commercial fertili ser under their next years crops, and no one will use over one-half tiie amount nned this year, We do not doubt the well moaning of those who have been giving of their means to the Belglon relief fund but we think mighty little of their judg ment. Right hero in our own county so the newspapers say-not two weeks ego there were some children given away because their parents were not able to support them. Wonder how many" of those who hife been giving to tbs Belgians even thought of giv ing as much as one cent to ease the distress in that home of people of our own flesh and blood. What assurance have we that the stuff being given for the relief of Belgians ls not being used by those who are oppressing them. What we want to see is Presi dent Wilson and congress stop - tho shipping of food supplies and mules and horses to those nations who are at war with each other. When this is done lt will stop the flow of money In to the speculators' pockets and enable many people to live cheaper than they now are and as sure as the sun shines the only one who 1? b?Ing benefltted by yin high price of food products Is the soeculator who deals in these com modities. A marriage of much Interest to this section was that of Mr. Elsie Williams of this nectton to Miss Anale Smith of Liberty.

An entire new front will be placed in the store room. The ceiling will bo raised some two feet A tile floor will be put down and steel celling put up. In the rear a stairway will be con structed leading to thc floor above. The improvements will cost in the j neighborhood of $25,000, it is stated. As generally known, Augustus An tor^akas, proprietor of the Piedmont ] cafe, has leased the property that is to be lmvroved and will open up there one of the most up-to-date restaurants In this section of the State. Mr. An-, tonakas, it is stated, has contracted for some $4.0000 worth of new fix tures for his new place. Among the improvement will be a new front of rough red brick. The up. per portion of the front will be of j white stucco. A plate glass front will also be installed. On the Interior of the building the wainscoting will be some 10 feet high and this will be mounted on a marble base. The wains coting, tables, counters and other fix tures will bc of mahogany finish.

The patrons of Eural Route No. 1 out of Willlamston are very indignant over the removal of Frank Ellison as carrier by the fourth assistant post master general. We think he was re moved without Just cause and had rather see th| roujte discontinued as for Ellison to lose hts Sob unjustly.
