THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES. By Cy Johnson. I just can't help thinking about what our old home town preacher said in one of his two-hour sermons way back yonder in the nineties. This is what it was: "What can be had free is seldom wanted." And as I look about mc I am con vinced he was right. For instance, We farmers live here in the midst of the trees and flowers, and yet we send to the nursery for these very things and pay a big price for them. We have in our midst the Agricultural agents of Uncle Samuel to show us the way in farming and yet we buy the passing humbugisms in stock foods, fertilizers, fruit trees, machin ery and pay a big price for them. We have in our midst a good many, and many good, teachers of religion and of learning, and yet we go and pay a big price for them, in the way of experience. We have pure water, air, sunshine and freedom and yet we pay a doctor and a lawyer to give them to us. We have muscles and brains and yet we hire others to do our work. We have peace and yet we are paying the Kaiser a big price for it. To me, the signs of the times are that if we do not do more ourselves, of our own accord, we will be pushed off this thing we call earth. CY JOHNSON. PINEY GROVE SCHOOL NOTES. Piney Grove School, with Miss Janie McFadyen as principal and Miss Alice Edmundson as assistant, has the largest enrollment in its history and the work is progressing nicely. Teachers' meeting was held at Piney Grove on Friday, February 16, with all the teachers and attendants present except one. Dinner was serv ed to the visitors on the grounds. The day was both pleasantly and profitably spent. Miss Anderson was with us for the first time. We feel that the teachers as well as the county should congratulate themselves upon secur ing the services of such an efficient worker. So far very few of the big boys had to stop school to work cn the farm. We feel that the parents should sacri fice in order to keep their boys in school. The members of the school com mittee are co-operating most heartily with the teachcra in all endeavors for school improvements. Piney Grove counts herself very fortunate in one of the ten schools which is to have the moving pictures. The Box and Valentine Party held Friday night, February 15th, was quite a succeps, both financially and socially. $51.27 was realized as a re sult of the party. This money will be used for school improvements. Music by the "Penny String Band" added very much to the peaaure of the even ing. Carolina Day exercises were given on Friday night, February 22. The Program by the school was as fol lows: America ? ny tne scnooi. Prayer ? Rev. A. T. Lassiter. Declamation, The Meaning of War ? Hftbert Hone^ycutt.

Special features of the evening were an address by Rev. A. T.

Newton kindly sang a solo, "God Keep and Save Our Men," which was greatly enjoyed by all. Near $300 was subscribed for War Savings Stamps. Misses Edmundson and McFadyen ?were in Benson Friday afternoon. Miss Edmundson was enrounte to Dunn to visit her sister, and Miss McFadyen was going to visit her sis ter who is teaching at Sandy Grove School. VISITOR.

The undersigned having qualified as Administer on the estate of Spicey Pope, deceased, hereby notifies all persons having claims against said estate to present the same to me duly verified on or before the .r>th day of February, 1919, or this notice will be pleaded in bar of their recovery; and all persons ndebted to said estate will make immediate payment. This 4th day of February, 1918. J. R. PO*>E. Administrator. Coats, N. C. i Ezra Parker, Attorney. He Has Keen Eye For Men A Ba*ebaII "Scout" Critically Lookg Them Over from Head to Foot. There is no occupation or profes sion that requires a better eye for the physical condition of a man than that of "scout" for a baseball team. It is their business to judge men quickly and accurately, just as an other person would judge a horse or other live stock, and it is a rare case when one of these eagle-eyed base ball experts go wrong in their judg ment. One of the most expert in this work and one who is best known to the vast army of "fans" who follow the national game is "Germany" Shafer, who scans the village base ball lots as well as the big league grounds to find the best that the game can produce for McGraw's New York Giants. Shafer knows that health is a big factor in the making of an athlete, for without health he is lacking in "Pep." Here is the way this noted scout expresses himself: "Whether a man is an athlete, pro fessional man or bench worker, he must be in good physical condition at all times. And we say in base ball, he must have the "pep," and I know from personal experience that Peplac gives this to people ? both men and women ? who lack energy and are run down in strength and weight, and who do not obtain suffici ent sleep and rest. I find that Peplac is an ideal constructive tonic and an invigorating purifier of the blood system. Like Ty Cobb, who hails from the south, and is a 'top notcher' in baseball, Peplac is a southern product and the 'top notch' of medi cines." Here is the opinion of a man who knows men and what their physical condition should be. He also has per sonal knowledge of Peplac and knows that it will bring health and vigor or, to use his own words, it will put the "pep" in sickly, run down men and women. Get a bottle of Peplac at Hood Pros. Drug Store. IN THE SUPERIOR COURT BE FORE THE CLERK. North Carolina, Johnston County. Jacob Boykin et. al. vs. Hackney Boykin et. al.
