We have repeatedly requested our correspondents if impossible to mail their letters on Monday , to hold them until the following week. If mailed on Tuesday they do not reach us until Wednesday night, and as we go to press Thursday it is impossible to make use of the letters that week, and the newsin them is rather stale by another week, so in the future we will not accept them for publication unless received on Monday or Tues day,. It is impossible for us to do so. MELYIM HILL. .The Fourth was celebrated at the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Feagan by the arrival of a fine boy baby. .

Th so told of the significance of the pres mt day, and of the far reaching ertect it would have the world over. Rev. J. A. Langley, after taking the floor said he thought it almost time for dinner, and that he had just remarked that it was about time to "shake a chicken leg." Rev Langley, being a young man, addressed his remarks chiefly to that element of the crowd, and was patiently listened to. Rev. O'Neal was then called for by the chairman who referred to him as be ing from Rutherford . county. Rev. O'Neal denied the charge, and claimed Polk county as his county. He made a splendid talk, and said that "Polk county did it: that she broke the'Hin- -denburg line; that she won the day at Chateau Thiery; while she did not do all of it, yet she did her part, and was most assuredly there." His talk aroused much interest and amusement as welU Mr. W. T. Lindsey wa.s the last talker and spoke of the necessity of cooperation between the citizens of all sections of Polk county; of the War Savings yet in vogue; of the forthcoming Polk County Fair, and plead for every person in the county to do their part. Mr. Copeland then referred to the fact that there was a large number of preachers present he hoped sumcientchicken had been pre pard to feed them on. After the addresses had been made the chairman called for donations ot the monument fund, and several sub scribed. It was hoped to have a full report of all subscriptions to date, but it will appear in our next issue The responses were lioeral enough to assure the success of the- monument. lhe afternoon was given over to hand-shakine and visitiner between those acquainted and the forming of new acquaintances. Everybody seem ed, to have a splendid time, and it is hoped that this is but the beginning of annual Fourth of .Tulv celebrations Columbus, where everybody in The saw and hammer are still being heard on the new church 'building.

The refreshing shower of Sunday was very much appreciated by far mers, though it interfered with the singing at Beulah, but caused all choirs present to sing together, there by making better music, so we are in formed. Oh, say, can we deem our Fourth a failure? No, no, 'twas not, even though the program could not be car ried out as intended. Who knew how to welcome the home coming of our soldier boys more than the ones who4 gave the splendid five minutes talks? The money was being raised for hte monumnt just the same, and 'twas a pleasant greeting and hearty hand shake of host and host of friends and good old pals who we had not seen in many moons.

Dear Editor: The time is at hand when every man woman and child is becoming in terested m the upbuilding of Polk county. The most important thing at present, was discussed at the mass meeting held at Columbus July Fourth, the erecting of a monument in honor of Polk county's heroes who sleep beneath the sod somewhere in France, and who paid the glorious debt that liberty may forever survive, and that all people may be free. Dear people, let every one, old and young, feel as if they are a stock holder in erecting the monument of honor to the brave young heroes who rest thousands of miles, away from home, and who won praise from all the world, as true and freedom loving r- i 11 i 1 v 1 jT young men. so lei au get Deruna me movement and make Polk county one of the first counties in North Carolina in erecting a memorial of honor to her part in the world for democracy " Bring ye all the donations to- the treasurer, and by the first day of the fair let us be able to have in Colum bus a monument of honor that some mother will be proud to pass by and view the name of her dear one that lies in Flander's Fields beneath white crass, and see the mark of hon or bestowed upon her hero. Our slogan should be "Complete by October Fair," so please let everyone in dear old Polk feel that he's at lib erty to donate whatever he feels he can, for the cause of the last honor we can bestow upon: the sleeping he roes who gave for us his all. Thanking you in advance fbr your favor, I am, Respectfully, C. WILBUR McGINNIS. Fingerville, Route 1, S. C. o COOTS FARMERS INSTITUTE Has Been Called to Meet on the 20th Day of August, at Columbus.

Give it good preparation, and when you get the turnip . seed sown turn right around and sow the same land in timotthy, red top and al sike clover, and see what it will do for you and your land. Look out for the date of our Polk County Farmers' Institute. It is Au gust 20th. Now let every fanner plan to hitch up to his farm wagon nil the bed with nice clean straw, and bring the good wife and all the child ren to Columbus on that. day. and. let us have a real social farmers' pic nic.
