"There was deep regret expressed when it was learned that Mr. Griffith had tendered his resignation. Had it left any loophole for the vestrymen to so act they in all probability would have refused to accept. That was the way that several expressed them selves to a News man last night. Had Mr. Griffith continued his con nection with St. Mary's until Decem k'1 he would have served the church twenty years. The ties formed be tween the pople of this community and him and his excellent family are of the strongest kind and sincere re gret will be felt at their departure." w. s. s STAMP SALES.

POLK COUNTY RED CROSS. We have several times touched on this subject, but so far our warnings seem .to have borne no fruit. We have had one of the best posted law yers in this section, Mr. Walter Jones, to go into the matter from a legal stand, and find out just what bodies in Polk county were required to pub lish statements, under the different provisions of the statute. Mi. Jones tells us that the following bodies and persons, in Polk countv are REQUIR ED, under the law, to publish annual statements: County Board of Education, Road Commissioners, County Commissioners, Incorporated towns and villages, Tryon Graded School. . -Since taking charge of the NEWS just two of the above classifications have complied with the law, County Commissionersa nd Tryon Graded School. The Board of Education, Commissioners and Tryon Graded exception of the town of Lynn, not a single one are complying with the 'law. Yet, if you should accuse any member of any of these bodies of not being law abiding citizens, how in dignant " they would become. But, gentlemen, should any person over whom you have jurisdiction fail to comply with the law you would imme diately start proceedings to compel them to do so. Then don't you third: you had better' first set the right kind of exapmle and comply with the liw yourselves? We n?ay be competed to usi a lit tle harsher me.iSt.ies if the puV.y laws 'n this county are not co.npl' Ml with. e w. s. S GOV. BICKETT IS COMING. Unfortunately the rain kept many people from attending the Patriotic League meeting, held in the school house, last Saturday evening, but those who braved the storm were re warded by a program of universal in terest. Dr. Ayers, of Y. M. C. A. Unit, of Camp Wadsworth, gave a very stir ring patriotic address, emphasizing the part women have alreadv nlaved in the war work, and setting forth the importance of a hi eh character stand ard in the nresent. crisis. At the close of the address of Dr. Ayres, a pleasing dance was given h six little fairies, followed by a ery beautiful dance by Ella B. -'jlen. ox Savannah, Ga. The patriotic singing, assisted Dy the Doubleday orchestra, was most enthusiastic. The organization of the Partiotic League was preceded by a pageant, "Heroines of History," a series of girls who have in times of crisis, serv ed and even saved the countries. Tableaux 1; Miriam pleading with Pharoah's daughter to save Moses for the Hebrew children. Singing, "Onward Christian- Sol diers. Tableaux 2; A Christian Martyr who died that Christianity might be held true. Singing, "Marseillaise." Tableaux 3; Jeanne d'Arc, who led France to victory. Singing, "God Save the King." Tableaux 4; Florence Nightengale, who first went to battle fields and nursed soldiers. Singing, "Yankee Doodle." lableaux 5;- Mollie Pitcher sprang to her husband's place, his gun, after he fell in battle. Singing, "Dixie." Tableaux 6; A Southern girl who carried messages through the North ern lines. Singing, "Over There." . Tableaux 8; A grouj of Patriotic League girls in service uniform, Red Cross nurses, ambulance drivers, far merettes, munition workers, and the group of younger girls, knitting, sew ing lor French orphans, collecting: old kid gloves, and buying War Savings Stamps. As a finale, the girls who the previous scenes marched i ig "America the Beautiful." Miss Helen Rue, who is a war worker of the Young Women's Christian Association, gave a talk on the work and purpose of the Patriotic League pledge. The Patriotic LeLague is an ideal, not an organization, striving not only to do a part of the work needed at this crisis, but to raise the standard of character of every girl in America. Two clubs have been organized to ! carry on the work. The Girl Scouts, under the leadership of Mrs. Eric Lubeck, and a Comrade Club under he leadership of Miss Julia Abrams. These two clubs hope to accomplish much as the Partiotic League of Try-on. w. s. s. WAR SAVINGS DRIVE. We Have the Right Prices AND Kind of Materials to do your building.

His whole heart is in the cause, so turn out and give him a genuine Polk county welcome. W. S. S. WATER BECOMING SCARCE.

He gives as a reason that the ground was frozen all last winter and did not , absorb the 1 r'rtwnilAVnKln O T1V rams and snows, uuaiuciouic . iety is resulting over the condition, as we'll as discomfort, Saluda and Hen dersonville, so he says, have had to increase their supplies by pumping fr-nm ntVior sources, but so far Tryon has had enough water for ordinary purposes. Mr. Blake requests every one to use as little water as possible, stop all leaks, and do not sprinkle lawns until rains of sufficient amount has relieved the situation. Mr. Blake says that we have only water enough to last during about one hour of fire fighting. -So govern your selves accordingly. --W. s. s.
