C, will conduct a series of poultry schools in Polk county, as follows: Building, Monday, Sept. 17, Mine eyes have seen the coming of the glory of the Lord; He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wratth are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword His truth is marching on. I have seen him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps His day is marching on. I have read a fiery gospel, writ in burnished rows of steel; 'As we deal with My contemners, so with you My grace shall deal; Let the Hero,' born of woman, crush the serpent with his hee. Since God is marching on. He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat, He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment sea. Oh! be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant my feet! Our God is marching on. t In the beauty of the lillies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me; As he died to make men holy, let us die to, make men free, While God is marching on.

We will have more to say about it next week. Watch the POLK COUNTY NEWS, how it is pulling for the upbuilding of Polk county.

JTSHTOP The Juniors have received their first allotment from Atlanta Head- nuarters. Thev are asked to furni-sh as soon as possible, two hundred ton que depressors. These are small wooden articles used to hold down the tongue when looking at the throat. The different groups in me cuuiity will each make its share, mere is no Junior organization as yet in Tryon, so tW Boy Scouts are to do their part.. Advices from Atlanta announce that Junior allotments will be made through Mrs. Holmes as head of the Woman's work committee, and that work will be returned to the chapter headquarters at Tryon for shipment. Miss Virginia Bland has agreed to act as secretary for the membership committee for the entire chapter. She will have charge of the membership lists. Manv members have not paid their dues 'for 1918. The lists of those unpaid will be placed m the hands of a representative of each hmnch in the countv. So remember to be on the look out for him when he comes to remind you 01 your over sight.

Some one who has not been at work, we suppose, has decided to work and not to fight,, as we have an axe and hand saw missing. Perhaps he will work whether he aims to or not. At least he stands a good chance to learn how. All streams are drying up rapidly, Although we have suffered but little for rain. All the rains since 1916 have been surface rains. Many springs have gone dry. So much has been said, in the NEWS about rattlers, and sending a ship load to Germany, etc., that one chief started to see me about it to day. He got close by, when to his surprise Govan Constant came along and halted him with a salute from his shot gun. He was about four feet long and of the dark variety. He died with his "specks" on, shedding time with him. Messrs. J. L. and James Jackson, of Spartanburg, S. C, were in this bv both teachers and pupils.
