Mr. Robert Strom and Miss Nar
rie Lewis spent Friday in
Edgefield, and as his wont when he
comes io town, Mr. Strom called at
The Advertiser office. While in
conversation with the writer Mr.
Strom remarked that th? crops
north of Edgefield as far as Mr.
Belton Pardue's are better, taking
them as a whole, than he has ever
seen in that section before at this
season of the year. With favorable
seasons from now till harvest time,
Mr. Strom. thinks farmers will be
satisfied with the yield..
Zealous .Church Workers.
On the day of the campaign meet
ing at Red Hill as we stood and
watched the dozen or more ladies
as they served saucer after .saucer
of ice cream to raise money for
their missionary treasury, we asked
Rev. Mr. Littlejohn whether or not I
he could get along without the
Christian women of his churches,
or discredit the men, that if lt were
not for the good women, at times
he would be almost ready to give
up. Every church, every commu
nity, has its consecrated Christian
women who are~>eady to take part
in every good work. What .would
the country do without them?
Among Mr. Littlejohn's faithful
workers at Red Hill are the follow
Mrs. O. J. Holmes, Mrs. Maggie
McDaniel, Mrs. J. T. Littlejohn,
Mrs. Amie Hammond, Mrs. W. E.
Prescott, Mrs. H. H. Smith, Misses
Hassie Quarles, Georgia and Annie
Mathis, and Miss Amie Hammond.
Would that every country church
could number so many noble, self
sacrificing women among its work
ing force. 1
''Mack's Sey?n-EUtr Corn."
Everybody is admiring the very
beautif ul corn of our friend Trapp
McMaiius just beyond the eastern
border? of town. Each stalk seems
to be vying with the one next to it
as to which shall produce the larg
est number of ears. Some actually
have as many as seven ears. Think
of one little grain of corn produc
ing enough to feed a horse! It
seems incredible. OuV friend Trapp
should sell every grain of this splen
did variety of corn for seed.v The
Advertiser makes bold to name it
now: "Mack's Seven-Ear Corn."
- Now in New York.

Notice to Contestants.
The judges appointed to decide
the wheat and oats contest that has
been,conducted by The Advertiser
will please send, in their reports as
early as possible. In some sections
delay has been"*caused on account
of the great difficulty experienced
in getting grain threshed. The
prizes will- be awarded to those
making the largest yield as soon as
all reports have been received.
Deep Plowing Pays.
While goiig to Augusta early
last spring, the writer observed a
farmer running a three-horse plow
in a field on one side of the railroad
and on the opposite side a one?
horse plow was turning: the soil. A
few days ago while passing those
fields we were impressed with the
marked difference in the growing
crops in the two fields. While both
have suffered from the excessive
rain, y^et judging from the present
prospect the land that was broken
with the three-horse plow will pro
duce a third more than that broken
with the one-horse plow. It mat
ters not whether it be a wet or dry
year, it always pays to plow deep.
The Little Irish Gentleman.
[The following lines refer to 4)r. T.
M. Bailey, Greenville, S. C., and were
written by his grand-daughter, and
were published in the Baptist Courier :]
There lives in the heart of the city,
'Mid rattle and rush galore, v .
A dear little Irish Gentleman,
Whom my heart does truly adure. >
Not of his life is the city's grime, '
Its noise and its ceaseless din.
He lives with the wife of his heart,
From the world with its lusts and
.There are bright fragrant blossoms
around his door, "
There are shrubs and -grasses green,
A more restful spot where care is not,
I ?m sure I have never seen.
And you know there's an old-fashioned
ere wond?rful green things grow,
But the garden i? the little gentleman's
So it couldn't be other than so.
There the sunbeams fall more caress
And. the winds blow more gently too.
For the little old gentleman is Nature's
And she favors him the whole year
And there 'mid the life of the city,
He's found his work to do,
So is it not right that he should rest
With years of hard labor through!
And often they who are tired and
And they whose hearts are sore
And they, who are weary of life'and its
Have found their way to his door.
To all the days that have numbered his
He has tried to give his best,
-So'he'has no fear for the' days to
God has promised him blessedness.
