What will we plant another year?
is the oft-repeated question. Surely
~)it will not be cotton. A bale of cot
~' ton to five acres on land that made
a bale. to the acre last year, will not
be far below the average for this
Some are already planning for
sheep, hog and cattle raising, but
how is the one-horse man~ going to
start in that enterprise, when the
bale of cotton that he will probably
*have after he picks over the last time
Wwill not pay his debts? It takes a
lot of wire and posts to fence even
a small pasture or two. Cedar aflio
post yak are the only wood posts
that we can get that will last, and
they are very scarce in these parts.
Besides, when we fence these hills
we bnly have a place for the cattle
to lie down- and then, oh, then,
where is the money coming from to
start a flock of sheep, a drofe of
hogs and a herd of cattle?
My friends, it appears to me that
if we are not .in a devil of a fix, we
:are in the hands of the Phillistines
e.nd only the pure in heart will be
able to survive the great reconstruc
tion in agriculture that is being
forced upon us by these durned bugs
But should we fail to amass a for
tun.a from the sale of truck and live
stock. history will only be repeating
itself, for few have gotten rich rais
ing cotton. I confess that some
have, but a big per cent, of those
will have to squirm mightily to miss
hell, for in working share croppers.
to use the words of an old negro,
"they take all and then go 'halvers."
A few will plant enough cotton to
keep seed in the land, so that our
posterity in years to come can see
the Jtick-o-lantern that their fore
fathers followed for sixty years in
ap unsuccessful effort to make mo
ney. Our children will never know
of the rich and varied experiences
of their daddies for the past sixty
years with ex-slaves and cotton.
Some claim that when we turn
tur fields to weeds and grass we
will, soon have Mollie cotton tails in
abundance, but I would not be sur
prised if the weevil would tkke to.
the cotton tails. Nothing that looks
like cotton can escape them.
We are sorry to note that Rev.
Mr. Sharp is at the hospital in Rock
Hill for treatment. Appendicitis is
thought to be his trouble.

REVIVAL MEETLNG CLOSED
The union revival meeting, which
has been in progress in the Commu
nity building for the past week,
closed Sunday night. 'Large crowds
attinded the meetings at both the
morning and evening services, the at
teidance at the morning services be
ing greatly augmented by the stores
of the town, without exception, clos
ing during the preaching hour. The
services were in charge of the Rev.
I John A. May, of Alabama, and the
music was conducted by Mr. Wal
ton, of Atlanta, with Miss Rebecca
Jennings at the piano.
There were several conversions
and others reconsecrated their lives
to Christian service, as a result of
th .meeting. However, the full ben
ecial effect of the meeting on the
spiritual life of the community can
not be readily estimated. Preach
*ing a true Gospel, and sound logical
doctrines, Mr. May's presentations
were clear and forceful. The seed
wiichi he planted here will be 'bearing
f*t in the community for a long
time, to come.
As Rev. Mr. May had several
dayswith no engagement before go
ing to another meeting, on Monday,
Tuesday and Wedgesday, !he held
spial services in the Methodist

ADS 90MING TO
There are many ex-prvice men in
Fairfield county that entitled to
compensation and many that need
medical treatment. This is the best
opportunity that ex-service men of
the county have had since being dis
charged from the army. to get first
hand information from the goverl
The clean-up aquad is composed
cf medical doctors, vocatinal men,
and compensation claims men. Now
is the time for you to take up, with
the gcvernment your claims, boys. If
you were wounded in the service, or
became disabled from serving in
the military service, take your dis
charge and all communications that
you have had from the government
and go before the clean-up squad in
Columbia between September 23rd
Remember that you will be given
your meals while meeting the squaa
and after you have completed your
egri you will be given railroad fare
back home by the government.
This squad has already taken up
2,000 claims with ex-service men in
South Carolina. They have' straight
ened out many claims, and filed
over 800 new claims. Out of the
2,000 men that have visited the
squad over 200 were sent to the hos
pital. These men needed hospital
treatment aind did not understandJ
how to get it.
The big idea is the government is
coming to you, instead of you having
to write to the government trying
to get satisfaction through the mail.
Every man, woman or child shoulo
tell others about this campaign an
take it upon yourself to see that
all ex-service men who are disable?
avail themselves of the opportunity
to meet the clean-up squad.
MSS BARUCH HONORED.
Amos Carlisle Johnstone entcr
taed at cards Saturday evening in
honor of Miss Simona Baruch, of
New York. Seven tables were set

of candy, was won by Miss Marian
Seigler, the c6nsolation, a deck of
cards, was cut by Miss Mayme Pee
pes. The guest of honor was pre
sented with a book. The last hour
of the evening was spent in dancing.
Ies and rcnle were snrred.
MT. ZiON INSTITUTE OPENED
Mt. Zion Ins.i.ute coegan iis cine
hundred and thirty-seventh year
Monday, with a larger enrollment
ihan ever before. Long before the
time for the opening exercises a
large crowd of pupils, former stu-,
dcnts and patrons assembled on the
grourds; and the pupils shovnd a
spirit of enthusiasm in taking up
their. work for the year.
Promptly at nine o'clock the atu
dents, teachers and visitors gather
ed ir the chapel. Just before Super
intendent Patton took charge of af
fair.- a group of last year's students
crowded together and gave a roof
raising yell for Mt Zion, which
seeme to indicate the spirit which
all the students of this year might
adopt toward their work. In 1-s
usual impressive manner, Mr. Pat
ton then welcomed the pupils ana
visitors aAd outlined the policy of
the school for the year. Among
other things he stressed this, "if the
pupil in the higher grades-those
approaching young manhood and
womanhood-do not intend -to work
this year it will be far better for
them not to come to school. Such
a course will not only waste time
for both the teachers and indifferent
scholars, but will hinder those who
want to study and make progress.'
After devotional exercises and pray
er by the Rev. M. Mayes, of the
Presbyterian church,' Mr. Patton
arked Mr. Mayes to address the au
dience, who spoke of the opportun
ities befpre the students and the
utmost necessity of their taking sd
vantage of them, if they would suc
ceed in later life. He also emnpba
sized the necessity of disipline, and
told how its enforcement. now would
exert or infiuepee for god later.
Pz. M. M. Steierti
the University of South erolina,
stated that football this year would
be on a higher plane I than hereto
fore. Resourcefulness and strategy
would be called on to win more than
weight- and strength. Although
Mt. Zion will have a lighter team
than last year, by using hd4d-work
it is expected that she will put out
a team with as many successes to
her credit 'as heretofore.
The faculty of the school this
year is as follows:
Miss Priscilla Ketchin, first grade; I
MrE. John Fayssoux, second grade; t
Miss Maggie B. Turner, third grade; t
Mrs. P M Dees, fourth grade; Miss e
