NEEDS INFORMATION. I
We are requested by the Spartan- (
burg Journal to explain the sub- j
stantial differences between an As- 1
sociate Reformed Presbyterian and
some other kind of Presbyterian.
The Major wilj find the explanation
in this week's issue of The Associate
Reformed Presbyterian, published at
Due West. If he will read that paper
not only this week but every week,
he will learn a good many things
which are worth knowing, things
which all Presbyterians do not know
In the preparation of his paper
Judge Greene might explain how it
has happened that "quite some" of
the A. R. P. ministers who have
catio nvpr to the "C. P.'s" because
they would find a more fruitful field,
have not counted for very much
in their new environment. Judge
Greene, probably knows that one of
his own "in-laws" thrice reihoved,
and a preacher of great learning, of
high power in the pulpit, left the
A. R. P.'s to accept the pastorate
of a Presbyterian Church in Con
yers, Georgia?the very Church, it
may be, to which Dr. Young has
gone?and except at rare intervals
was he ever heard of again as a
conspicuous ligni among tne rres
FOREMAN IS ATTACKED
Nine Men Assault Seaboard Air
Jacksonville, Fla., August 1.?
Charles E. Harris, 37, foreman of
the machine shop of the Seaboard
Air Line Railroad here, was at
tacked by nine men as he came from
his work this afternoon and severe
ly beaten. He declared he could
identify four of his assailants, whom
he alleges were strikers.
New Bus Line.
Edgefield, Aug. 1.?The first trip
of the Johnston-Edgefield-Greenwood
dus line, operaxea oy c. n. waiKer,
was made Thursday. From now ori
the bus will operate on a regular
schedule, arriving in Greenwood a
bout noon and returning at 4 o'clock
To people who own no automobile it
has been expensive proposition to
go from Edgefield to Greenwood, a
distance of thirty-six miles. One had
to go by rail either via Columbia or
Augusta, at a cost of $5. If by au
tomobile the rate was higher. No|/
the trip can be made for $1.65. This
new line has been hailed with de
light by our people.
Dial Only Man Backing His Own
Bill, Is Claim.
Washington, Aug. 1.?Reporting
adversely on the Dial bills, which
would revise the system of cotton
futures contracts and reduce the
number of grades, tenderable under
the present contract from 10 to 3
the Senate agriculture committee
declared today that its author. Sen
ator Dial, Democrat, South Caro
lina, was the only person appear
ing to support them. Witnesses
"with the remotest knowledge" of
the cotton business and representa
tives of the Department of Agricul
ture had opposed the changes con
templated, the report said.
"Spot merchants who deal direct
ly with the growers, pointed out
that their purchases necessarily cov
ered a wide range, embracing some
twenty or more grades known to the
spot trade," it added, "and if they
were compelled when selling futures
to insure thes^ppurchases to be limi
ted in those futures contracts to!
only 2 to 3 grades then the future:
contract used>&s a legitimate hedge!
or insurance would ceasetofunction.'^

of the county assembled there to wit
ness the beginning of this valuable
course open to Abbeville County club
Kirls. The Wednesday morning ses-1
sion lasted from 10 to 12.30. At i

^ave the girls a very hearty welcome j
recommending: the great work which i
lay before us. Dr. Robinson extend
ed to us a warm reception also, wel
coming us to his town and college.
"Mother Walker," dear to every
*lub girl's heart, gave a very valua
ble demonstration on pickling, after
vhich a picnic dinner was spread.
Mrs. Johnson gave a very inter
ring demonstration on hat making
;n the afternoon. She also gave a
:alk on Leadership which brought
?ut many new ideas before those
present and made each one see the
need of local leadership in all club
The Woman's Council had a short
meeting1 at 3 o'clockj after whlich
they were adjourned.
Misses McMurray and Roberts
taught us how to make tea napkins
until we heard the gong sound for
supper. Then it seemed that the
short course had really begun when
these fifty girls started their yells
for Due West and club work. After
supper we all assembled in the audi
torium for prayer meeting and com
On Thursday we had Dr. Hayden
and Miss Todd from Columbia with
us. It was indeed an opportunity to
every club girl to have these health
officers, assisted by Dr. Pressly ex
amine them. During the morning
hours also Miss Neeley, State Poul
try agent was with us and gave very
helpful talks and demonstrations on
the testing of eggs.
In the afternoon Miss Todd gave
an instructive lecture on "First Aid"
and Dr. Hayden also talked to us
about "Typhoid fever and how to
prevent it." After supper the good
people of Due West brought their
trucks all loaded with straw and car
ried us to ride. When we came back
Misses Wilson and Wham had some
games and stunts for us and another
happy day of the short course was
Friday morning Dr. Henry John
son made a most impressive talk on
"Thrift and Economy." The ten
commandments of economy that he
gave are well worth practicing. He(
told us many interesting things ac
complished by the club boys and
girls of his state.
Miss Snyder gave us a demonstra
tion in salad making in the after
noon; thus ending the program of
our short course.
We were fortunate in having Mr.
Herman, a leader among our boys,
with us. He gave some valuable talks
encouraging their work.
Miss Mildred Wilson gave the
girls and boys setting up exercises
before breakfast each morning, and
she and Miss Gladys Wham arrang
ed various games and forms of en
tertainment for us.
We are indeed grateful to Mrs.
Gibbons, our leader, for making
such a short course possible for us.
Everybody who was present puts it
on equality with the State Short
Course, and to Mrs. Gibbons the
credit is due.
Then, we club girls must pause j
to say a word for Dr. and Mrs. Rob- \
inson who were so lovely to us. They
made us feel at home with them. I
know that every single club rilember
is with me when I say that we are
more eager than ever to make our
state the best state and our county
the best county.

(By Wm. P. Greene, Jr.)
Abbeville won the last game of!
the two games series with Green- j
wood this week. This makes four j
straight games that Abbeville has,
won from our old time rivals. The j
game was won in the ninth again,!
the game being tied up until that j
inning. Clark, the first Abbeville i
man up, singled. B. Galloway hit one J
to short too hot to handle and Clark I
landed on second. Botts hit to Lea-1
man in right, who threw to the plate |
to catch Clark. When Clark slipped |
back to third Botts was safe on first.!
F. n.illowav singled over second af-j
ter Milam had struck out, winning
the game for Abbeville.
Reames was in the picture again.
He scored the two runs which tied
the game. In addition he made one
of the most spectacular catches of
the year when he robbed a Green
wood player of a three bagger, or
possibly a home run.
The players of this league must
learn not to hit fly balls in the ter
ritory occupied by Abbeville out
fielders for all of them are as fast
as scared rabbits and the ball is in
a tar well when it hits in one of
Abbeville now goes to second place
in fhp nereenfcace column and is
only about two games behind Ander
son, the leaders. If Abbeville keeps
on playing like they have been for
the last ten days we will lead the
league by the end of the week.
When we get there we are there to
stay. So look out for us Anderson
