FAVORS DIVIDING THE DIOCESE
Episcopal Council Favors Idea When
$40,000 is Raised.
Yorkville, May :3. That this
council considers the division nf
the diocese desirable when $40,
000 is added to the present bish
op's permanent fund," is thE
wording of a resolution adopted
by the Episcopal diocesan coun
cil hee today. This with thE
adoption of a resolution provid
ing or a special committee tc
look into the advisability of elect
'ng a negro suffragan bishop of
tihe diocese were the chief mat
:ers of interest disposed of by
'e council today.
Bishfop Guerry submitted his
annua! rep-SOrlt tIMs11 Mrning and
it he explai:ed h tpsi'on on
he livisiOn of the diocese. He
sdid not mean by

rthe A'iscopat i What esaid(
h-a reference t the notice 'er
ved on the diocese that the mat
Ler of division would come up
agy-in at the Yorkville meeting.
In the letter he expressed him
I self as believing that the contin
ued agitation of a division of the
I diocese was setting back the work
of the church and preventing co
operation on matters of great im
portance which concerned the
welfare of the diocese as a whole.
He opposed a discussion of the
division in advance of an increase
5 of endowment with which to pro
vide money to finance the addi
tion of diocese. When a division
is made feasible by increased en
dowment, and when it is clearly
3 the wish of a majority of the lay
men of the diocese to divide,
Bishop Guerry says he will not
oppose the divisions.
5 The special committee which
5 was empowered to raise the en
3 1dowment of about $40,000 for the
division reported this morning
that they considered it useless to
attempt to raise funds after
3 Bishop Guerry had issued kis
5 open letter in June, therefore
5 the conmittee had..not acted.
fol mulatd a report which was
submitted to the council to-day,
a in which it was stated thaE it
5 was their belief that the endoNv
3 ment could be raised and ree
-ommended that the council ap
point a committee of three with
s full power to carry into execu,
tion the issuing of coupon bon4s
s in several denominations, matur
s ing in ten years. This recom
mendation was adopted and then
this council went -on record as
sthinking a division of the diocese
desirable when the endowment
s of $40,000 is raised.

What and When to Plar
Necessary for Coi
At least three parties within
the past few weeks have told us
that they plant their terraces in
iunflowers. which prove a de
eided ornament and make an
abundant yield of the very finest
poultry feed. The value of the;
sunilower is very much more ap- 3
preciated out west than here, as r
here it is a crop of importance.
The example of the farmers re
ferred to above might be foliow-,
el by all a considerable profit.
The ,Uuestion of what to do in
reg-rd to re.jantingz. where one
has lailea to gtx a stand. is one
:ba1 in a large majority 01 m
stances can be answered by say
;r that where there is only a

Especially is this true ot corn
mc! practicaily all other field

onderfully resourceful crop and o
h,vich frequently mades a very a
ine yield with only a partial I
;tand. Replanting corn is about 2
as unsatisfactory piece of work r
Rs one ever gets at. v
This is about the season. when
nost farmers plant their branch
bottoms and other bottom corn,
which usually does better when
planted not too early. These
bottom lands are very valuable,
,vhen they hit all right.
The soia bean is a crop the *
value of which the farmers of
this section need to learn more
abt. There is not near so t,

CAPERS CHAPEL 1
The Memorial Services at Yorkville
Were Well Attended.
Yokville, Mty 2.-Fully seven
undred persons were present at'
the Church Home Orphanage
this afternoon to witness the
laying of the corner stone for'
the Ellison Capers Memorial hall.
This hall will cost abor*~ 510.000
raised by public subscriptions
and will be in the nature of a
double cottage which will accom
modate 32 children of the orphan
The stone was placed a n d'
blessed by Bishop Guerry, who:a
reviewed briefly the life of Bish
op Capers as a soldier and citizen,
as a priest and bishop and as a
servant of God. J. Steele Brice
made a short talk in behalf of
the people of York county,stating
that they deemed it a high honor
to have a memorial hail of so
great a man. He knows of no
man, living or dead. more be
loved than Ellison Capers, he
said. In the soldier-bishop were
exeplified the highest ideals of
man' said Mr. Brice. He pledged
the support of the York county
people to the orphanage.

.John Kershaw. D. D.. who was
the speaker of the occassion. Dr.
Kershaw' address was a com
plete review of Bishop Capers'
life from the time of his birth to
the day of his death.

as public official, as bishop. he
met the expectations and justified
the confidence of his people, who
