Stand of Cotton Good, Promise
of Increase m Corn, Reho
both a ^aW*t?H? ?
(Written fotylast week), t
Our fanners, have about finished
planting cotton and stands: of early
planting .are' generally good. ^At
tention is BOW* being given, to pre
ps 'ig the soil for and planting
- corn, of which, every farmer will try
to- make a sufficiency for. home con
sumption at least this year.
The recent rains have brought
about a wonderful transformation
in the small- grain, which is now
generally considered as fairly good.;
Quite a large crowd attended ser
vices last Sunday morning at Reho
both and enjoyed an exc?llent ser
mon by Rev. X T: Littlejohn. He
used as the foundation for his re
marks Numbers 14th and part of
the 25th verse: A call to come out
of the wilderness of sin and accept
the blessings of joy,, peace and hap
piness that God offered to us.
"We were glad td haye quite a
number of visitors to worship wii^i
us Sunday morning. Among those
present being xMr. and Mrs. E. C. j
Winn, Mr. J. C. Seigler, Miss Essie
Seigler, Dr. and Mrs. Adams, all
from Plum Branch; Messrs. Til
Seigler and Dannie Bell, from
Parksville; Mr. and Mrs. Tandy
Broadwater and their four bright
and sweet little girlsjof Trenton, and
Mr. J. L. Gilchrist frem near Au
gusta. Nearly all of these are Reho
both people who have moved from
the community in the last few years
- and their presence is sadly missed
in our church, and Sunday school,
as well as socially.
Our B. Y. P. U., which meets
>- only once a month, carried- out a
most excellent program arranged for
last first Sunday morning. Mr. W".
M. Strom, our newly elected presi
dent presides with dignity and ease,
and all of pur young .people are
greatly cnthuited over the work.
Already the Rehoboth people are
looking forwarajwith pleasure to the
coming union meeting of the sec
ond division, which, is to meet with
us on Saturday before the fifth Snn
day in the month. We hope every
ch?rphin the union will be well
represented and every appointed
speaker present with a good speech

Loving Tribute to General
While the papers are publish! _
high tributes to Gen. M. C. Butler
for his bravery as a1 soldier, for
his fearlessness as a statesman, for
uprightness of character, and all
the virtues that make the Southern
gentleman, its is my pleasure and
privilege to tell of the goodness of
his heart, the kindness of his nature
and the nobleness of his just and
weil balanced mind.
"I have known bim since my boy
hood, and have lived near him a
my life. Since he has made his
home in Edgefield for the past few
years, I have lived in calling distance
of his door.- He admitted me into
the circle of his friendship, and I am
a better man today for the hours I
spent in bis society. Day after, day
' I spent hours with him and learned
from his conversation and daily life
that he; was not only a great man
but a good, generous, warm hearted
man, wishing good to all and speak
ing harm of none.
He was a philosopher; for he bore
the brunt of trouble and adverse for
tune without bitterness.
Gen. Butler was a man and spoke
out manfully ia defense of his own
rights and opinions, andjallowed otb
ers the same privilege.
Ijle was a gentleman, for he treated
every one, no matter what bis sta
ti on, with, that courtesy and polite
ness a true gentleman always shows.
He was a wise man, for in the
reading of many books his simplici
ty of faith and love of humanity
was not warped. \ . t
He was a christian, for he spoke
ill of none but had charity and kind
ness for the weakness of mankind.
Although I am a poor man in the
humble walk of life, he made me
bis friend. Worldly rank and
wealth did not influence him,as many
a poor man can testify. He help
ed us as a brother, or as one com
rade would help another, and not as
one conferring a favor. He will
live long in the hearts of those who
knew him intimately and loved him
in his latter days, of whom I ap one.
