After spending a vacation of
'several weeks very pleasantly
amon^ friends and loved ones in
Edgefield, Mr. T. B. Lanham left
on Monday for his far-away,
northwestern home, accompanied
by Mrs. Lanham and his two
daughters. They returned by way
of Keutucky where they will
speud several"days with Mrs. Lan
For ten years Mr. Lanham has
been actively engaged in Chris
tian work among young men.
Eight years ago he severed his
connection with Edgefield and
cast his lot in Kentucky, accept
ing a position as Y. M. C. A. sec
retary of Muhlenburg county. Af
ter laboring very successfully in
that county he was called to
Harrodsburg, Kv., where he did
au excellent work.
While Rev. John Lakes is 'ook
ed upon as the founder of the
county Y. M. C. A., Mr. Lanham
bas bad more to do with making
the movement a pronounced suc
C?B? than possibly auy other
young man in America. The work
passed through the experimental
stage in KeDtucky under tbe lead
ership and direction of Mr. Lan
j Nearly two years ago, Mr. Lan
ham gave up his work in Ken
tucky to accept a larger field iu
Ohio; to become Y. M. ?1. A. sec
retary of Medina county in the
latter Btat-3. In writing of Mr. Lan
bam's work and of a bauquet that
jwas rftceutly given iu his honor,
tho Medina count}1. Gazette said
among other thing*: 'In all thie
work of- organization, Secretary
;Lanham has been the initiative
?and guiding spirit and he has
shown binase]f just the man for
?the place." s
It is very gratifying to Mr.
Lanham's friends at hiB old home
to know that be is accomplishing
so much for the young mon of bis
adopted home and that he is
greatly honored and appreciated
by the people among whom his
lot'has been casi.
Sino our farmers have learned
how to raise 30 to 75 bushels of
corn on an acre of thin upland,
they should turn their atteution
to raising colts. Several have ap
peared on our streets this summer
and it is said that there are more
colts in Cherokee than usual.
There have never been better all
purpose horses in this county than
the home-raised. Fine, large mules
can be raised here, but it cannot
be done on western corn and
grassless pastures. Let the far
mers secure strong active mares
and go to raising colts. It will be
a j profitable way Jto dispose of
their surplus corn. A ftvo-borse
farmer with a few acres of Ber
muda pasture and plenty of corn
and oats can briug'a mule colt up
to thirty months for less than
$60.00. At present prices the mule
as BOGG as he is broken would be
worth $150 to $200 to size and
style, 'By all means let cur far
mers turn their atteution to rais
ing colts.-Carolina Spartan.
