of those who are to deliver the com

A very elaborate program has been

the people of our town^hould patron
ize the exercises Friday evening: lib

"Hay Make? The Mare Go."
Don't neglect your, hay crop. Our
good friend. Dr. W. D. Ouzts, says
the interest that is being taken in the
The Chronicle's cotton contest and
The Advertiser's corn contest is go
ing to cause people to forget their
hay. This must not be. Peas are
cheaper this year than for several
years, so let a larger acreage be
sown throughout the county. You.
need cotton to help pay your debts
and you need corn to help keep out
of debt, but do not forget that hay
is an indispensable factor in 'mak
ing the mare go."
A prominent feature of the com
mencement will be the competitive
drills to be held on
the public square.Fri
day afternoon at six
o'clock the I dividual

The Editor's Compensation.
The man who edits the average
country newspaper cannot well avoid
treading on somebody's toes contin
ually; must expect to be censured
often for unintentional failures; must
expect hard work and little thanks;
must expect to be called a coward
because he'does Dot "pitch into"
everything that somebody thinks is
wrong and a fool if he speaks out
too plainly on public evils. He|
must expect to grind other people's
axes and turn the grindstone him-1
self. Still, we think it is one of the
noblest professions on earth, the one
in which the earnest man can do the
most good to his fellow man and in
which an honorable man can wield
much power for good.-Arcanum
The Williams' Plan.
In driving over the country it is
easily perceptible that farmers have
in recent years adopted many new
methods in planting and cultivating
their fields, but there is yet one thing
that is not generally practiced, and
that is regular and systematic rota
tion of crops. It is impossible to
restore humus and vegetable matter
to impoverished soil without rota
tion. Commercial fertilizers feed
the growing crops but do not in
crease the fertility of the soil from
year to year. We would like to see
more farmers adopt Mr. S. T. Wil
liams' system of rotation. He sows
every fall the land that was planted
in cotton and corn duringThat year.
Several persons have told ps that
Mr. Williams has the fliest oats they
have seen-not a few patches but
