Mr. J. L. Blair, Superintendent.
The twelve Sunday Schools were
represented with rhe excep

An instructive discource was
given, by the Rev. R. S. Trues
dale of Spartanburg, S. C. on
"How the Organized Sunday
School Movement helps the De
nominations"; also "How to
make your schools grow", and
These subects were handled in
the most edifying manner; and
no doubt but that much and last
ing good will result. Rev. W.
S. Henry, gave an interesting
discourse on "The Pastor's place
in the Sunday School". Rev.
D. W. Hiott, made an interest
ing address on "The Importance
of Teacher's Training Class".
A very enteresting report, of the
State S. S. Convention held at
Orangeburg, S. C. was given by
J. M. Garrett, delegate from the
Liberty Baptist church. The
following committee was ap
pointed by the president to or
ganize a Sunday School at Roan
oke school house: J. J. Garrett,
R. T. Stewart and W.T. O'Dell.
Each Sunday School in the
Township was assessed $1.00 for
-- ~..the expenses of the association.
The election of officers for the
ensuing year was as follows:
L. E. Prince, Pres., J. J. Gar
rett, Vice-Pres., A. L. Johnson,
Sec. and Treas. Executive
Committee: M. A. Boggs, J. M.

sumptuous dinner was served
at the church. The next meet

Liberty, S. C. Sec. & Treas.
On Friday Feb. 26th '09, the
home of Mr. and Mrs. John L.
Dillard, was thrown in excite
ment when it was made known
to the parents that Ressie Dillard
their little three year old daugh
ter had swallowed a no. 2 safety
pin. Dr. Woodruff, of Cateechee
was called in, and found the pin
in her throat, and trying to ex
tract it from her throat she
swallowed it from his reach, and
and thinking the pin was in her
stomache she was faithfully
treated 17 days 'under the skill
ful management of Dr. Wood
ruff with hopes that she would
~get all right. But instead of im
proving, she gradually grew
worse, and on the 15th of March

to be gotten out without an op

child to the hospital to perform
the operation, but decided one
more time to try with his instru

\minutes the pin was brought
out and wvas carried to the heart
broken father and mother with
the glad news that their child
was not hurt and ready to go
was, and the whole community
extends gladness to the fond
parents, as little Ressie is a sweet
child and the idol of her home
which is now full of light and
sunshine after being made dark

"Your son has Consumption. His

D. F. Hendricks, of the Peer

mighty fine chicken in his Buff

beauties, and he is getting lots
of orders for eggs and stock.
Mr. Hendricks is also raising
Indian Runner ducks.
B. F. Freeman, breeder of Buff
Leghorns and Barred Rocks, has
two fine breeds of fowls that
make a pretty show in his
yards, and he is getting orders
for eggs and stock faster than
he can fill them.
C. L. Cureton has an ideal
poultry farm and he is breeding
the finest strain of Pit Games,
Black Minorcas and Bronze tur
keys that he could buy, and he
has as pretty a lot of fowls as
you can find anywhere and he
is getting orders galore.
B. F. Robertson, of Clemson
College, is originally a Pickens
county boy, who is breeding fine
White Wyandottes that win in
every show. He has a mighty
good strain of birds that are com

not supply the demand for
chickens and eggs.
Prof. J. W. Swittenburg is

This is a good fowl, excellent

Rock breed of chickens has been
developed from the Dominiques,
and now this breed is coming
back into popular favor. His
chickens are from New York
state, where for all these years
the strain has been kept in all
of its purity.
George Williams, of Pickens,

The Old Red Hills 1
Once Loved SO Well,
Far away beyond the glamour
of the city
In a little home that was ever
dear to me,
There is where I spent the gold
en days of manhood,
The days that were so/happy
and so free.
But the years have come and
gone and told their story,
The very sad tale that time
alone can tell,
I And no doubt there has beer
many, many changes
Back among the hills I loved
I know the grass is green upor
That the violets still are bloom
ing in the dell,
That the bluebirds are singing
Around the dear old home fai
Often times I dream I wandei
around the homestead,
And see the girls playing al
about the door;
And I seem to hear them sweet.
The songs we used to sing ir
the days of yore.
But all may now be silent and
No voices may now echo thro'
And the ones I loved, no doubt,
they too, are missing,
From among the red hills 1
loved so well.
Could I only call them back,
those happy days so bright
And listen to the sweet songs
we used to sing,
As we met together, almost ev;
ery Sunday night,
Sweet thoughts of those love
ly times to me bring
Oh, happy were those days, sc
full of fun and glee,
When every hour passed with
a joyous swell
They will never return, those
bright sunny days to me
Among the old red hills I once
loved so well.
FIFTY YEARS LATER.
I'm getting old and gray, can't
can't live much more,
My mind is wandering, dream
ing of dear old Pickens,
And the many ups and downs,
but downs the more,
Where I was born, raised and
scuffled to beat the
To keep the sheriff and the wolf
from my door.
And now dear friends and
playmates, if any left?
Don't forget a friend because
he's old and poor;
Please write me a line some
day and kindly tell
Me of yourselves and what has
become of the rest,
From the old red hills I once
loved so well.

Liberty, S. C.
We want to talk to you a little n'w
about our awmoniated fertilizers. The
acid and meal season is about over.
Those who use acid and meal haul :t
home early in the se-ason s, that ther
can mix it, The season for ammoni
ated goods commence later. and iy
fact. is about started iow. There is
not much difference in acids: one acid
is about as goo i as another. It is all
made of phosphate rock, (bone pho
phate line,) crus.hed and treated with
sulphuric acid phosphate and one fert i:
izer company turns out about as good
quality of this gocls as another. The
difference in fertilizer is in anmoni
ated goods. Ainoniated goods are
made by taking this smie acid phos
phate and mixing it with ainmoniates,
blood tankage nitrate of soda, cotton
seed meal, sulphate of ammonia, garb
age. Now; .sonme of these ammoni
ates do their work and exhaust mr
quickly than otheis and so by prop
erly mixing and manmpulating our amt
rmoniates, we have gotton a fertibizer
that will nguhish the plant fronm the
time it sprouts, all during the growing
season. during the laying-by season
and up to the time the plant is ma
tured and ready to be gathered. Take
for instance nitrate of soda. It acts
quickly and exhausts. Cotton seed
meal will come in next: it will dis
solve and assimilate with the soil be
fore it becomes a plant food, just as
when you plant a grain of corn it has
to germinate before it comes up. Tan I:
age come in next and then blood;
which lasts until the crop is matured
and ready to be gathered. So by tak
ing the different kinds of ammonites
in the proper proportion, one comling
in as one exhausts, we have a fertili
zer that will feed and nourish the
plant from the time it sp:-oms until it
is ready to be gathered. That is a
complete fertilizer and unless it dos
that it is not a complete fertilizer.
It does not matter where you get it,
it is not a complete fertilizer unless
it feeds and nourishes the plant from
the time it sprouts untll the crop is
ready to be gathered. These ammo
niates are very expensive, that is wvhy
ammoniated goods cost more thln
acids. Take sulphate of ammonia; it
costs $64 per ton laid dowu at the
factory. .We have bought quise a lot
of this and are using it in fertilizers
that will sell for less than $.30 per ton,
just because we want to make the
right kind of goods; goods that will
make the crop grow and keep growing
and witl make a man take a pride in
his crop. Our ammoniated goods used
on lands that are prepared and culti.
vated, as the farmers in this section
usually prepare and cultivate their
lands, will get all out of the land that
there is in it ad a farmer should not
be satisfied with making the land do
less than that. The trouble about us
ing a chea;-> ft rtilizer is just this: hy
the time you find out it is nto account
you have lost a crop and you have lc:,t
a year's work and the only thing you
can do is to wait until next year and
try again to fertilize right.
Every sample of our goods that has
been analyzed at Clemson College ran
way above our analysis which shows
that we are making the right kind of
goods. There is absolutely no adulter
ation in the fertilizers we are mnaking.
They are made of bone phosphate of
lime ammoniates and nothing else.
There is nothing better nmade. Our
goods iwill feed and nourish the plant
from the time it sprouts until it is ready
to be gathered and that is the kind of
goods your land needs; that is the kind
of goods your land must have to imake
first class crors. If you wvant goods of
this sort, we have them and they are
for sale. They are home-made and they
are made righ'; they are dry and well
pulverized and we want you to try
them. See our agerns.
