Thia street sweeper Is a splendid
ilhi.'itration of what can bo done In

FINAL PROGRAM Og GREAT
MEETING MAPPED OUT
Ceil to Officers of this Denomina
tion is Made in Interest
At a meeting of the special com
mittee to arrange for a conference
(ir oidora, deacons, Sabbath Behool
superintendents and preachers of the
presbytery of Piedmont hold in the
study of Dr W. ?H. Frss^r, ps&tey
of the Pirat Presbyterian church yes
terday the final program for a great
gathering of the Presbyterian hosts
in Picken:,, Oconee and Anderson
counties was adopted. The time was
changed from Tuosday, June 27th,
to Thursday, June 29th, owing to the
chautauqua to be held at Iva on the
J/nu-ru aro being neut to the min
isters in charge of the various
churches within the bounds of the
presbytery with the urgent request
that they see to it that a full dele
gation from their respectivo church
rn attend th I:.* Important conference.
i<t* pains Will be spared to make it
an epoch shaping gathering in the
history ot Presbyterians In the Pied
mont section. There is the feeling
that greater efficiency is available in
the machinery of the Presbyterian
church than is being realised and the
determination ls te face the situation
squarely as lt is pointed out by ex
perts* in tho work Of the church.
The plan ia to have an afternoon
and an evening session, with an in
termission for the Serving of an
open air banquet by the. Pbilathea
classes of the First church. The
evening service will close tn plenty
ot time for'those who wlBh to return
to their, homes in automobiles that
night. The plan ia for officers to
come in automobile;! so that they
may be able to return to their homes
after the night service. Buch an ex
periment, was made by tho Masonic,
fraternity (recently at Clemson col
lege and lt worked admirably.
The following program has been
arranged under' the auspices of the
Home Mission cc m mi tte o of. Pied

generating an- inspiration that will
promote tho advancement of Presbyf

Many farmers pf Anderson county ]
are becoming interested in the grow-1

acres have been planted this season,
according to Mr. S. M Byars, eon li

separator, was a visitor. In the city]

ingly of conditions in the lower sec
tion of Georgia, the crops in general
and ospecialiv tho growing of. vel
vet beans. nderson county farmers
Will be interested, in the great suc
cess they have obtained.
"The cotton crop in that section of I
Georgia is the best in many years, |
especially in Brooks and Thomas
counties," stated : Mr. Lykes. "The
acreago is a gr??t deal larger this
year also. Thc farmer/; believe that
this is the last crop of cotton they
will be able to produce because, of
tho advent of the .boll weevil, and
they are anxious to make as much as
possible this year.
"I noticed that the cotton . was
growing mighiy fast and was far bet
ter than usual abd began, to make
inquiries about the' amount and kind
of fertilizer used. To my surprise I
found that partcically no commercial|
fertilizer bad been na ed. The'farm
ers, told me lt was the result of tho j
land being planted in velvet beans/
They stated that it was the best Soil:
renovator they had ever s??n.
"In seme sections ! waa told that
no rain had fallen, ii; 44. days, hilt
you could not tell,it 'by the appear
ance of the cotton ,The velvet beana
have put the proper humus in the j
soil which causes tho crops to be j
able to realst it drought.
"The velvet beans there ere -plante
ed either in rd wa between the corn
or in hills in the'same, rows with the
corp. In the fall after the Corn ls
gathered,- as. many . of tho .beana - aa
are desired .ore picked and . some pf
the vices cut. ,Th?.remaining fields
serve aa a pasture land, for the,stock
and cattle during tho .winter..
.fSouth Georgia Ia, becoming to be j
a "great cattle producing section, too,"
continued Mr.' Lykes. "Ono Of tho j
biggest end best packing: houses in
the country, is now, located nt Moul
trie. Thousands of cattle are killed j
th ore and the business has taken on i
tremendous proportions. When the]
boll weevil does prevent the growing |
of colton in that section, tho farm
era will he far better prepared for'It
than If they had never planted vel
vet beans.7 .
Anderson county f/irmers are be
ing urned to prepare'for the boll
weevil tinco experts estimate that lt]
will be here in less-than five years.
They are belog urged to ?row other j
crops and to go into the stock rais
