NEWS OF INTEREST IN THE SOCIAL REALM WITHOUT A SMILE You are Like bread without the spreadin’, Like a puddin’ without sauce, Like a mattress without beddin’, Like a cart without a hoss, Like a door without a latchstring, Like a fence without a stile, Like a dry and barren creek bed, Is a face without a smile! Like a house without a dooryard, Like a yard without a flower, Like a clock without a mainspring. That will never tell the hour; A thing that sort o’ makes yo’ feel A hunger all the while— Oh, the saddest sight that ever was Is a face without a smile! So smile and don’t fergit to smile, An’ smile, an’ smile ag’in; ’Twill loosen up the cords o’ care, An’ ease the weight o’ sin; ’Twill help yo' on the longest road, An’ cheer yo’ mile by mile; An’ so, whatever is your lot, Jes’ smile, an’ smile, an’ smile. —Selected.

D. C. throughout the South is the announcement that Mrs. W. D. Lamar, of Macon, has withdrawn from the race of president gener al. Mrs. Lamar is a brilliant and capable woman and her hosts of friends and admirers regret that she withdraws from the race, even on such unselfish grounds. Mrs. Lamar’s card to the U. D. C. chapters is as follows: Macon, Ga., August. 2, 1915 To the United Daughters of the Confederacy: Since early in June I have striven to settle a vexed question and have finally determined, against Miss Rutherford’s wishes, to withdraw from the race for president general, basing this det cision upon the fact recently learned that Miss Rutherford is committed not to refuse the of fice as historian general, if it should be offered her and because I know that her election for a fifth term is certain if Georgia has no candidate for president general. Therefore despite the fact that enough votes are pledged to elect me on the first ballot. I will not jeapordizeMiss Rutherford’s election by remain ing in the race. I rejoice that Georgia has been so greatly hon ored already, and I wish to thank the many states that have fos tered my candidacy, but my sense of fairness forbids Geor gia’s claiming three officers on the executive board. My work for U. D. C. causes will be as earnest as ever and my zeal, unhampered by official responsibilities, will be more ser viceable to the organization. Yours to command, E. D. B. Lamar, Pres. Georgia Division U. D. C. PERSONAL Judge A. H. Ogletree was a visitor here this week. Sam Johnson was up from Hawkinsville this week. Miss Willie Thornton is the guest of Mrs. C. W. Buchanan. Mr. R.
