a bad team, if there are no additions.
The Inter-Department games will be
scheduled as soon as the days are long
enough for games. The Office Team
got away with the pennant last year;
but they had to fight for it, and their
hold on the cup will be contested fiercely
this year. A meeting to align the dif

Tennis bids fair to rival baseball in
popularity. The Racquet Club has been
formed for the purpose of buying equip
ment, keeping the courts in shape, and
regulating the order of play on the
courts. Mr. R. V. Richards is president,
and Mr. A. J. Rice, treasurer. All per
sons interested in tennis, and desirous of
joining the Club, should see one of them,
and have their names brought before the
Club for membership.

And your tonsils squeak, and your hair

But you’re skeered you won’t, and afraid
Just drag to bed and have your chill.
And pray the Lord to see you thru;
For you’ve got the Flu, Boy,
You’ve got the Flu.
When your toes curl up, and your belt
And you’re twice as mean as a Thomas
And life is a long and dismal curse.
And your food all tastes like a hard-
When your lattice aches, and your head’s
And nothing is as it ever was—
Here are my sad regrets to you;
You’ve got the Flu, Boy,
You’ve got the Flu.
What is it like, this Spanish Flu?
Ask me. Brother, for I’ve been thru:
It is from Misery out of Despair;
It pulls your teeth, and curls your hair;
It thins your blood, and breaks your
And fills your craw with moans and
And sometimes, maybe, you get well—
Some call it Flu; I call it HELL!
An Attractive Store
Among the number of Badin’s attrac
tive stores, that of the Badin Furniture
Company occupies a high rank. The
utilization of space is very skillful, there
being no sense of crowding of stock,
altho there is an abundance of new and
pretty features in the way of furniture,
druggets, etc. Of course, the gallery as
sists materially in affording good display
The general effect is one of order,
cleanliness, and attractiveness—all of
which is a part of excellent management.
I am writing this as an expression of
my faith in the present and future of
Badin and its environments, which we
should stand for in the uplifting and
the building of society by which Badin
will be benefited as a whole, by those
who expect to make Badin their future
home; by those who can and will be con
tented with conditions as they arise;
by those who swear by the boat that is
landing them safe during the greatest
struggle of the history of the world.
And when you take time to think justly
and considerately, that is what Badin
is doing, and has been doing for all who
have clung to her colors and all of those
who have tried to make useful citizen.s
of themselves; it is thru the efforts,
goodness, and courtesy of the officials of
the Tallassee Power Company that we
hardly realize we have had such a world
struggle. They have carried us thus far
safely, by giving us employment at fair
wages (and steady), and giving us ad
vantages in the way of education and
school equipment that can scarcely be
equaled elsewhere. They have also made
provision to care for those who may be
so unfortunate as to get sick, by erect
ing a hospital, complete and modern in
every respect, and employing skillful
physicians and nurses. They are also
making our town beautiful with trees,
plants, and flowers.
Then why should we who expect to
make this our home not love Badin?
Let us get together, stamp out that
which is wrong by doing what is right—
everybody should help to make Badin one
of the cleanest and most moral towns.
Why, we have the strong arm of the
officials with us, and they will back us
up! Live such lives that your nextdoor
neighbors will take a stand with you;
if you don’t make him or her better, he
