PICKENS, S. C.:
THURSDAY, MAY 20. 1909
By an invitation it was the
writers pleasure to attend a
family reunion on last Wednes
day, the 12th instant, at Mr.
Hoke Galloway's near Norris
depot. At 9 o'clock in the morn
ing the relatives and a few in
vited friends of Mr. Galloway's
began to gather at his residence
and by 11 a. m. there w ere 58
It being Mr. Galloway's birth
day (he was 55 years old that
day) he decided that the most
appropriate way to celebrate
the occasion would be to invite
all his children, his grand chil
dren and a few of his friends to
come and partake of the good
things that he had prepared.
So in accordance with his de
sire all his children (12 in num
ber) and all his grand children
(20 in number) were present.
Mrs. Galloway was 55 years old
the 2nd day of last March, so
there are only two months and
ten days between their ages.
They have 12 living children and
two dead; 20 living grand clil
dren and five dead. At 1O:3(
a. m. all were invited in the
room where Prof. J. C. Garreti
entertained the crowd witi
music until about 12;30 wher
Mr. Galloway announced thai
dinner was ready. All marched
out into the yard where under A
beautiful grove with all kinds
of beautiful flowers and vines
surrounding the same we found
a table about 30 ft. long loaded
from one end to the other with
every thing that heart could
wish for good to eat. After S.
W. Howard had asked God's
blessings every one present was
made to feel at home and right
here we wish to say that about
30 minutes of as happy time
was spent as we ever witnessed.
After every one present had
~fully satisfied his or her appetite
there was very near enough left
on the table to have fed the
crowd again. Lemonade was
then served after which seats
were prepared under the beau
tiful shade~ trees and the organ
brought out. After some ex
cellent music had been made by
Pro. J. C. Garrett Rev. B. C.
Atkinson read a chapter from
the Bible and made a good talk.
He spoke of the pleasure and
consolation it gave us to meet
and commune with our relatives
and friends here upon this earth
but said there was coming a re
union beyond this vale of tears
that was far superior to any
we could have here upon this
earth. Brother Atkinson made
a feeling talk aiyl there was
scarcely a dry eye when he
Brother J. C. Garrett was
then called on and he responded
with a few well chosen remarks
suitable to the occasion. Broth
er Garrett spo'ke of being in
Charleston at Old Soldiers re
union and how he was touched
with the scene when the old
soldiers came marching down
the street and the ladies began
to throw flowers and hollow
"reunion," "reunion." He said
it brought the rememberances
of his father back to his mind
when his father fought and
died for the lost cause.
Brother S. W. Howard was
next called on and made a feel
ing talk. Bro. Atkinson then
received the benediction and the
crowd wvas dismissed. At 4 p.
mn. each one returned to their
home wishing that Bro. Gallo
way and wife may live to cele
brate several birth days yet and
that they may celebrate then)
all in the very same way they
did this one.
Mr. Galloway was raised in
Transylvania Co., N. C.. and
he, like all those North Carolina
while it is not very common
for two good people to get to
gether Mr. and Mrs. Galloway
seem to try to compete with
each other in their hospitality
when it comes to making a
guest feel at home.
Mr. Galloway has bought the
B. D. Garvin place near Norris
and has a nice home. He has
overhauled the house and now
has as nice a residence as any
The Norris Sunday school pic
niced ' on Six Mile Mt. on last
Saturday (the 15th inst.) There
was a large crowd present.
Prof. J. C. Garrett and Perry.
Durham made speeches and a
general good time was had.
The Liberty ball team played
Cateechee on the latter diamond
on last Saturday (15th.) The
game stood 2 to 9 in favor of
Cateechee. This is the second
game Cateechee has played
Liberty this season and Catee
chee has won both games. On
next Saturday (the 22nd inst)
the same teams will play again
at Liberty. Boys you have cer
tainly got to know your busi

The writer had the pleasure
of taking a day's drive out in
the country one day last week
in company with Mr. W. P.
Nimmons, of Seneca. We don't
think we ever saw a better stand
of cotton than there is now.
While that hard rain about the
1st of May baked the ground
and farmers had to harrow all
their cotton to get it up. They
don't lack for a stand now.
All cotton needs now is work
and plenty of hot weather.
Farmers have gone to prepar
ing their land better and the re
sults are visible.
Mr. Duff Bolding tells us hE
has 4 acres of wheat that is
hard to down and we think se
ourself when he can show 47~
heads of wheat all of which will
average 5 in. to the stalk from
one grain of wheat, who can
beat it? If the rust don't strike
it and no disaster comes Mr. Bol
ding will exhibit this stalk of
wheat at the next county fair.
Mr. J. W. Williams, of Nor.
ris, received a telegram last Sat.
urday (the 15th inst.) that his
brother, DeForest Williams had
died the day before in the hos
pital at Aberdeen, Washington.
His brother Wade who was
with him at the time of his
death had his body embalmed
and started home with him on
the 15th. .They are expected to
reach his home on the 21st or
22nd and his remains will be
laid to rest at Mt. Zion cemetery
beside his father the late A. B.
Mrs. T. M. Norris, of Central,
visited Mrs. E. N. Whitmire, of
Cateechee, one day last week.
Mr. T. M. Norris' father, of
Orangeburg, is visiting his sons,
Messrs. T. M. and G. F. Norris,
Miss Ida Madden, a captivat
ing young lady of Pendleton,
visited her cousin, Mrs. Luther
Kelley of Cateechee, last week.
The old bachelor sure did get
stuck on her but dont let his
Greenville girl know it.
Miss Josie Gambrell and
mother of Brushy Creek, visited
at Mr. and Mrs. B. P. Kellev' s
The "Blossom of Pea Ridge"
certainly has the advantage of
the old bachelor. He don't
know who she is. If he had
known her he would have
stopped and got a bouquet out
that pretty flower yard.
What is the matter with Red
Rose? Dont suppose she is dead
for we saw her going to the pic
nic last Saturday.
That general good fellow of
Pickens, Mr. Walter Craig, was
seen on out streets last Sunday.
Come again Walter, it is like
old times to see you at Catee
Corresnondents what do you
all think about an old bachelor
going and bringing his best g irl
to his house and letting her stay
a couple of hours to see how she
likes and then carrying her back
home? We wont tell who it was
but just ask Jim how she liked.

The farmers of Anderson county ar
going to d.) more top dressing this yea
than they have ever done. Top drea:
ing or side dressing has been on the ir
crease in this county for the last fes
years and it has paid so well that nearl,
I every progressive farmer is going to d,
more or less of it this year. We hea
of one man who put in very little fertil
izer lest year before plentmng his crop
He side dressed liberally and nmade 7
bales of cotton on 60 acre s of ground
That is the kind of farmiing that p'ays
Farming is a poor bu siness when you
work two and three acres to make
bale of cotton but it is a very profitabi
business when you can make a bale o:
Cot tonf or more to the acre. We havy
abo~ut fLur IA-L I or:s of handsomni
high grade ainoniated goods suitable
for- side drcssing. It will take morn
than this for the farmers of Andersor
county if they use it as liberal as they
will find it profiitable to) do, and then,
we are selling this fertilizer in Abbe,
vylle, Greenwood. Greenville, Pickens
and Oconee counties. The farmers in
these counties do not side dress to th4
extent that farmers in Anderson county
side dress, but they are coming to it and
will do more (of it than ever this year at
they are finding out'that it is very profit
able. Wnetn the fertilizer is put in the
ground before the crop is planted or
even when it ie- planted, the spring rains
come along before the plant germinate
and take root, and the fertilhz 'r goes
down ina the ground s> fast that thle
root of the plant cannot citch much of
it; it has too long a lead. Wh'len 3 ou
wait until the cotton comues up and is
thinned to a stand and worked out and
theni suIe drts s its with fi s -class high
grade ammaoniated goods such as we
manufacture, the roots of the plant
are just suirrounded with food and nour
ishiment for the plant. Every particle
of te fertilizer used in the- sue dressing
goes to the g owing crop: that is t he ob.
ject of fertilizing, you w-.zut the giow
ing ctop to get the fertdlizer. You will
see the effect of this in the growing and
mi the gathering. The man who side
dre -ses liberally is the man who will
have the brag crop; yt.u can put that
down. It may be that you cannot side
(ress your whole crop but you can bide
dress a good part of it and that will en
able you to see whether it pays or not.
We are manufacturing a specially hand
same goods this year for side dressing
which we call "Vandiver's Side Dres
ser," analyzing 8-5-6 and we recommend
it to you with absolute confidence. We
certainly would not put our name on is,
if we did not feel that it would prove
satisfactory to all who use it. It is the
best grade of goods that has ever been
manufactured in this country, it ana
lyzes higher and we confidently believe
it will give better results than anything
you hava ever tried in the way of ami
moniated fertiliz-ar. It is the best goods
because it is made of the best material,
ears a t
1s, and C.M
stand readv to give
of new nn )els from some of
you will spot them at once as
e the best acid phosphate, t blod,
r tanka4ge and garbte d the m
to the ton. There is a great differenc
in ammoniated goods. The ammoniates
are the expensive part of fertilizer.
That is where fertilizers are skimped
when they are skimped, but they are
r not all skin.p -d. There are other fertil.
Izer manufacturers who make very good
.goods, but we are not advertising them
at the present writing. We are adver
.tising our own goods and there is notn
ing better and mighty little as good.
They are all right because we put the
ingredients; blood, tankage. letc., in
them to make thenm all right. We will
have quite a lot of Nitrate of Soda on
hand too, for side dressing: and just in
passing, will say that we understand it
pays as well to side dr< ss corn as it does
any crop you grow. The corn contest
this year promises to be very interesting.
A great many farmers will contest for
the prises. The man who winis will be
a man who fertilizes heavily. The corn
that wins will be corn that has been side
dressed, and probably more than once.
You will not stand the ghost of achance
of winning any of the prises unless you
fertilize heavily and side dress also.
In the old blue back spelling book
which we all thumbed in puisuit of
that knowledge which seeme to have
eled the most of us we find the doc
trine laid down that "the best is the
cheap.est." If that doctrine applies to
spellhng books, and wye suppose it does,
at least we are not going to stop to con
test or discuss that question now, we
are selling fertilizer now not spelling
book s; if that doctrine applies to spelling
books it certainly ap~plies to fertilizerB. -
If a spelling book is weak in certain
points and you find it out you can dis
card it and get another. If your fertil
lizer turns out to be weak you wtil find
that out all right enough and you will
discard it and get another. but the
trouble is you have lost your crop and a
year's work and every hand and mule
on your place has lost a yeur's work be
fore you find it out. The only thing s.
you will carry over from that year will
Ibe the year's debts. So, it witl pay you
to get a goodi fertilizer at the start, one
that is shown on anal sis to be all that
a fertilizer sho~ild be and in this connec-.
tion we call your attention to the ana
lysis of our fertilizers mad e at Clemson
College this year. They have all stood
up on the analyris and analyze better
than we guarantee them to be. We
knew they would do it for we put the
stuff in them to make them do it, We
are willing to pin our faith to and rest
our case on the fertilizers that we have
manufactured this year. The analysis
at Clemson College show that thav are
just exactly right.
Now we have got
it is for sale and it
terest as well as our.
and try it liber ly.
