The Majesty of the Law.
We sometimes catch ourselves won
dering how to class a prohibition
agent. Is he a benefactor of society
and therefore to be accepted with all
his works as an exponent of the trend
of a higher civilization? Is the kill
ing of a seventeen-year-old boy in
Cherokee county the inevitable remit
of forces which we have put in mo
tion and cannot now control?
On any count the story which ap
peared in the Citizen on Sunday does
not make pleasant reading. The
killer may have had justificntim for
his act; whether he did or not will be
made manifest in his trial, assuming
he is eventually to be trie! The

The proprietor, Mr. M. H. Reeves,
On July 6, 1920 our community was
shocked and much grieved to learn of
the tragic death of Dock McElroy.
He had gotten but a short distance
from his home on his way to work
; when in some way was thrown from
'the truck in which he was riding
and was instantly killed.
I The account of Mr. McElroy's death
should have been given earlier, but
since no one seems inclined to wri'.e,
I decided I would give a brief sk.'tch
of his life. Having lived a close
neighbor to Mr. McElroy most of my
life, I believe I knew him as well as
friends mid neighbors can know each
other. Dock was a friend and neigh
bor to all. Always in good spirits,
not easy to get mad, and had a smile
and kind word for everyone. He was

When Company Comes
rHEN the Carringtonj found
at the last nr.untc, that they
would be detained in New
York for about a week, cn route
to Atlantic City, they decided l
look up the Erasers. Uncle Henry
and Aunt Edna were ear.cr to meet
their nephew's wile and children.
Cousin Fred suggested telephoning
first But they couUu'i imd the
lumber, so decided to take a chance.
They were welcomed with a sin
cerity, that rang true. Margaret
Fraser didn't seem at ill flustered.
After establishing them comfort
ably in their rooms, she informed
them that dinner would be ready
in twenty minutes, and slipped
away to the kitchen. The visitors
were amaxed to And that Margar
et's "twenty minutes" meant just
that. They expected to find only a
hasty snack, but instead, sat down
to a five-course dinner. It was de
licious. Finally, Aunt Edna could
not restrain her curiosity. She
begged Margaret to explain how she
had managed it.
"O, this t one of my cinergency
shelf dinners," her hostess replied
smilingly. "I keep one pantry shelf
stocked with a variety of foods that
are ready-to-serve. So, when I havs
to get up a hurried neal, or have
. extra guests, I don't need to run
to the grocery for additional food,
nor delay dinner until it is cooked.

blend them with other foods and

Canned fruits, Margaret told Aunt
Edna, are so handy for cocktails,
salads and desserts. The juice may
be saved to make refreshing drinks.
Canned applesauce mixed with the
beaten whites of eggs makes deli
cious Apple Whip. Both mixed
fruits and grapefruit come ready
prepared for salad, saving much
time and work. ;
Aunt Edna' attention was also
called to the fact that sweet oots-
toes, prepared and cooked, now
come in cans, so that they may
be quickly saute or candied.
Tinned poultry, meats, and fish may
be served cold or re-heated, or cut t
up and mixed with other ingredi
ents. The Irish stew suggested in
one of' the menus is quickly pre
pared by cutting up tinned beef and
mixing it with canned vegetable
oup. Diced potatoes may be added,
and of course, sufficient water to
?ive the right consistency.
Canned spinach requires only a
irief re-heatingi Margaret explained.
Cheese now comes in tin, and thus
keeps moist indefinitely. In fact.
Aunt Edna was amaxed to learn
how many different kinds of foods
are now put up in this convenient
form. For she had gone on in tha
Old-fashioned way of preparing and
cooking everyiSing, herself.
"The modern housewife who does
not take advantage of the conven
ience of commercially prepared
foods is just as foolish as her hus
band would be, if he refused to use
modern, improved equipment in his
business," Margaret declared. "I
find I can give much more of my
time and strength to my husband
and children by leaving the tedious
preliminaries of cookery to the can
lers. Besides, canned foods are less
expensive than fresh, especially
when one takes advantage of sale.
There is no waste in them, either.
