Hot weather is slowing
our work in the office
down and our tempers up.
The other day we heard
a great commotion in the
Superintendent * s office;
thinking it was one of
our loud-winded evange
lists who always comes
to our village this
season of the year to
^ ■'start his "Hell-Hot re
vival, but to our surprise it was or^y Charlie Forney Jr., having a private con
versation on our party line; V
Speaking of evangelists, we had one several years ago conducting a revival in our
village church who was trj^lng very hard to stir up some emotion and hold the
people*s attention, No\? the people in our church have a habit of coming in late,
and going out vi/henever the spirit moves them. People kept coming in late then be
gan to go'.out right in the midst of the sermon. Finally the parson wiped his fore-
- head and said in a loud voice, "I have been lots of places, preached to many con
gregations, but this is the first \7alking congregation I have ever had,"
Shelt Feimster our colored janitor rail always remember a little accident of by
gone days, when he and Lizzie his wife were having a rather hot argument while
Lizsie was washing the dishes, Shelt moved close to the door and began to talk
back. Lizzie threw one of those old fashioned thick cups and sjnashed it all over
Shelt *s head. He threw up his hands and said “Lawdy Mercy Lizzie please don*t I
ain*t never sod it,”
Mr, Hart our Sales Manager, is taking his vacation this v/eek in York, South
Carolina, We are expecting him to come back full of vim and vitality. For his
slogan is "South Carolina vegetables contain all the complex vitamins B, C & V,
B for Bravery C for Courage and V for Victory,"
The Provident Hospital Insurance is doing a flourishing business here nov/ with so
many new babies arriving, A man from out in the sticks came in the other day and
asked for'"A labor blank". At first I was puzzled, thinking he wanted some kind
of permit. Finally he explained "One of them Insurance Blanlcs fer new babies, I
jined v;hen the others did."
Miss Effie out in the store relates an experience she had in regard to fires.
Several years ago Miss Effie went to *a hotel to spend the night. Having a mania
about fire protection she began looking around to find all the fire escapes. She
went dcavn a hall and opened a door and peered in. It v;as a public bath room md
a man was taking a shov/er. Miss Effie quickly slammed the door and hollered
"Excuse me I v/as only looking for the fire escape," The man came tearing out of
the bath room with only a towel draped around him shouting "Fire Fire", Of course
the hotel v/as soon emptied of its guests.
