Long Cane School Closed With
Here I am again trying to give
you some news from this section.
We have been too busy for the past
two weeks to gather much news.
Most of the farmers around here
have finished planting their cotton
and are now getting a move on
them to get the balance of their
corn planted. Small grain is fairly
good if we can get a goodly quan
tity of rain in the next two weeks.
There will be a lot of oats harvested
around here notwithstanding there
has been a lot of oats ruined by a
small green insect that some call
louse. Wherever there is many of
them there will be no grain gather
ed as they will keep it from even
heading out, and I have noticed
some good big spots where the oats
are dead from the effect of this in
sect and lack of more moisture.
Our Long Cane school closed
Saturday the 20th with a neighbor
hood basket picnic which was en
joyed or seemed to be very much
by all who attended young and old.
Prof. Entzminger and Mr. A. S.
Tompkins, both made us a fine talk
on Educational lines and the im
portance of parents seeing to it that
their children are kept in schools
until they are capable of making
the battle for a livelihood through
this busy old world. After the ad
dresses were over, Prof. Entzmin
ger delivered the medals to the
winners of same, namely, Velma
Cogburn, Carolu Cogburn, Reba
Cogburu and Mary" Lewis. The
medals were awarded for the most
head marks. We are sorry to see
school close as it will rob us of our
teachers for the time being at least,
as they will have gone to their
homes ere this is in print. Mr. W.
H. Mathis, principal, and Miss
Aminee Cartledge, assistant, have
both been faithful to their charge
for the past 6 months, and now we
are so attached to them that we re
luctantly give them up. We hope
though to have them with us again.
I will have to close as it is now
time for our mail to leave.

The Host of Union Meeting
The union meeting of the 3rd di
vision of Edgefield association con
vened with the Plum Branch Bap
tist church yesterday and day be
fore, and it proved to be a great
On Saturday the subjects, church
discipline, how to increase our nu
merical strength, temptations and
the power of prayer were discussed
by brethren M G White, T G Tal
bert, J C Harvley, J M Bussey, L
G Bell, S T Adams, Rev. T H Gar
rett and Rev. Stoudemire from Au
gusta. Bro. Leggat of Clark's Hill j
also did much to add interest to the I
meeting by his helpful talks.
On Sunday morning the Sunday I
school exercises were in the hands
of the superintendent of the Plum
Branch Sunday school. At a quarter
to twelve o'clock, Rev. T. H. Gar
rett preached the missionary sermon
j from our marching order, Matthew
28-19, Go ye therefore and teach all
nations, etc. It is said to have been
a good effort, followed by a collec
tion of $15.76, which was en: Hy
divided between home and foreign
missions. This brought the exercis
es to the noon hour, and the dinner
was said to have been superb. It is
estimated tb at there were, at least,
1,000 persons present, and they
were all fed, and of the fragments
taken up over 12 baskets7 full after
all did eat and were filled. Plum
Branch is noted for her generous
hospitality, but upon this occasion
she simply excelled herself, to one
and all of whom we most politely
pull our hat.
In the afternoon, ' the exercises
were m the hands, of Bro. C. Y. D.
Freeland, president of the B. Y. P
XJ. and the following took part.
First, Miss Mae Roper, a paper I
"The relation of the il.^Y. P. U. to
missions," after which interesting]
talks were made upon the B. Y. P.
U. work by Brethren Stoudemire,
Maxcy G. White and John G. Mc
Kie. Withal the meeting at Plum
Branch was in many respects su
perior to any heretofore held in the
baby division of our association, and
all came away singing the praises
of Plum Branch. Indeed for one to
understand the progressive spirit of
Plum Branch folks, it is necessary
to go and see. The very atmosphere
is saturated with this spirit.
This week the district conference
of the Cokesbury district will con
vene with these people, our Metho
dist brethren, and though the
church membership is part Metho
dist and part Baptist, a stranger at
our union meeting,- or a visitor to
the coming Methodist conference
could not tell one from the other.

Planting cotton is about complet
ed in our locality we believe, and
people are using considerable nerve
in the amount of fertilizers they are
using. We understand that Mr. D.

manner other enterprising farmers
are using fertilizers freely.

Children's Day Exercises.
The Christian world, if we mis
take not, is indebted to the Metho
dist denomination for originating
or inaugurating what is now known
in all of our churches as Children's
Day, which is a day set apart each
year for special exercises by the
little folks of the Sunday school.
And wherever these special exercis
es are held, whether in country,
town or city churches, the attend

Proper Care of Brood Mare.
Exercise is necessary to the mare
to keep her healthy. The mare
that is breeding sHuld never be
overloaded. The mare carrying
foals should not be tied up in
stables, nor should she be allowed
to be at large with other horses in
yards or fields. It is bad io allow
her to race or play or fight any.
Use your mare in ordinary work on
the farm. She needs plenty of ex
ercise. Do not overload or neglect
shoeing. ''After the foal is born
the mare ought to 'have two or
th ree days rest and quiet, although
many farmers who are hurried with
t\eir work and cannot very well
part with the services of* the mare
in the field, find no evil results fol
lowing from working the mare mod
erately from the day after the foal,
is dropped. The practice is not,
however, to be commeded."-Home
