Douglass, deputy commissioner and an analyst in this district, completed a grading inspection yesterday of the grocery stores of Columbia.

SLOPE ADORNED WITH FERNS Students Find Many on Hinkson Creek This Spring.

The damp weather has caused these plants to grow until they surpass many now found in the florists’ shops. The “Jack in the Pulpit” has started to bloom also and from the number of blossoms on the wild blackberry bushes the woods will be abundant with berries this summer.
