EDGEFIELD, S. C., WEDNESDAY, MAY 17,1911
Through Efforts of Daughters
Appropriate Exercises Held,
Veterans Dined, Graves
' A day that will be pleasantly re
membered in Edgefielv especially
by the veterans of the county, was
Wednesday last, Memorial Day.
The members of the Edgefield
chapter, U. D. C., sent invitations
to all of the veterans in the county
to attend the memorial exercises as
their guests. More than a hun
dred veterans, whose names are giv
en below, accepted and partook of
the dinner that was served on the
lawn of the Baptist church. The
long table was bountifully supplied
with barbecue dinner, salads, pickle,
cake, etc., vv:ch, together with the
lemonade, ice tea and coffee, were
thoroughly enjoyed by the guests of
honor. Yes, guests of honor, in the
fullest and truest sense. Every
body present honored and greatly
revered all of the survivors of the
sixties, the ladies taking especial de
light in showing them every possi
ble courtesy and attention.
During the dinner and for^ an
hour afterwards, the old soldiers en
gaged in an exchange of war-time
experiences. Some of them, though
perchance members of the same
company, had not seen each other
in many years. These occasions,
such as that of Wednesday, serve
two purposes, to wit: First, they
afford an opportunity of serving
and honoring the veterans while
they yet live, and second they are
practically a county reunion, at
which the veterans can mingle and
chat with each other as they did
when they wore the tattered gray
At three o'clock the veterans and
a goodly number of people of the
town assembled in the Baptist
church, where the following pro
gram was faultlessly carried out,

At the close of the exercises the
old soldiers, Daughters of the Con
federacy and members of the auxil
iary placed Howers upon the soldiers'
graves and arranged wreaths about
the monument on the pirolio square.
It is generally conceded that Me
morial Day has never been more
beautifully observed than it was
last Wednesday. All honor to the

Good Shower Saves Grain.
Baby of Mr. and Mrs.
Marshall Ul. Modoc
We had a fine shower of rain last
Saturday. It was just in time, too,
for oats were beginning to look a
little off and cotton was almost at a
standstill. Corn is on the move,
that which the worms have left.
The infant son of Mr. and Mrs.
J. O. Marshall is quite sick, grave
fears are entertained for ito recov
ery. They have secured the ser
vices of a trained nurse from Au
Mr. H. A. Adams, of Meriwether
was on our streets not long since
and remarked that Modoc had built
up considerably since his last visit.
Why, of course, besides the four
grocery stores, Mrs. W. F. Cromer
has opened a millinery shop to fit
up the ladies, and bring a mantua
niaker of taste. You see Modoc is
abreast with the times.
The Twin city has had her rail
road trimmed up and put in order
by Mr. W. M. Robertson, the man
who composed the song *'R. R.
Mrs. M. E. Walker is at her post
in the school room. While she has
not fully recovered from her recent
illness, she is trying to push her
school onward and upward.
The Modoc ladies have decided to
organize a B. Y. P. U. We hope
they will meet with success.
Mr. Editor, did you ever see or
hear of hiving bees in a jug? Mr.
R. Buchannan found a warm in a
telegraph post. Ho put a jug at their
entrance and smoked from below,
thereby upon removing, jug gum
bees were all in.
We organized a B. Y. P. U. last
night. Rev. T. H. Garrett helped
us to organize and gave us a good
talk. The following officers were
elected. Mr. Jasper McDaniel,
Pres.; W. Earl Prince, Sec. and
Treas.; Miss Estelle Reece organist,
Mrs. M. E. Walker, Mrs. Mamie
McDaniel and Mr. W. P. Cromer,
committee. It was very generally
regretted that Dr. P. A^J^ Bf?
Mr. Joe Ouzts has his well drill
in this little town, and to be sure
he will not only benefit a few but
the public generally.
Mr. J. C. Harvley has been call

Mr. Lil Seigler of Parksville
worshipped with us last Sunday.
Come again Mr. Lil. and bring your

is the best poison for rapid destruc

The pickle worm prefers the buds,

the melon worm prefers the foliage.
In the melon or cantaloupe patch
there should be planted a few hills
of summer squash. These squash
plants should be thoroughly sprayed
with arsenate of lead, two pounds
to fifty gallons of water. When
the meLns or cantaloupes approach
the size of a base ball they should
be tightly bagged with six pound
bags of a fairly heavy grade of pa

were not killed on the summer
squash to enter the melons and can
Arsenate of lead is rapidly taking
thc place of Paris green for use on
tender foliage. It contains less

it is recommended at the rate of two
pounds to fifty gallons of water or |
one ounce to three gallons.

Clemson and Winthrop Will
Have Special Train Make
Tour of State Early
The agricultural train to be sent
out by Clemson and Winthrop col
leges under the direction of Prof.
D. N. Barrow, superintendent of
the division of extension work and
farmers' institutes, is creating much
interest throughout the state. The
following information furnished
by Prof. Barrow will be of interest
"Plans have been perfected with
the leading railroads for the opera
tion of the agricultural train that is
to be run by Clemson college and
Winthrop over the state this sum
mer. This train will consist of one
stock car, one baggage car, one Sat
oar and two passenger coaches. In
the stock car will be carried at
least two representatives of the
dairy breeds, probably Jerseys and
Holstein's and Shorthorns, Here
fords, Polled Angus and Red Poll
ed. The swine industry will be rep
resented by a pair, each of Berk
shires, Poland Chinas, Tamworths
and Duroc Jerseys, and probably
one or two other breeds. There will
also be in this car a pair of heavy
draft mares as representatives of
the kind of animal necessary for
the breeding of good mules. Some
of this stuff is already on hand at
the college, and Prof. A. Smith is
now in the middle west selecting
and buying the rest. Nothing in
the shape of live stock will be car
ried on this train unless it represents
the very best type of its breed.
To Have Laboratory
"The baggage car will be used
as a laboratory for giving practical
instruction in various operations of
the farm. Corn judging and seed
selection will be taught in a practi
cally, and the preparation and appli
cation of sprays for fruit trees will
j also be taught. Lessons in soil fer
, tility will also be given. Among the
! special features of note in this 'car
will be a model farmer'slibjf?fil
i should be found in the library of
every progressive farmer. Where
conditions are favorable practical
demonstrations will be given on
nearby farms both in orchard and
field work. The train will be provid
ed with a number of the latest and
best agricultural implements, espe
cially thoss adapted to economical
cultivation of crops. Where the
crops and seasons will permit the
workings of both these implements
and the draft mares will be illus
trated in the fields. One passenger
coach will be equipped with a lan
tern and used as a lecture room in
which illustrated lectures will be
given from time to time upon sub
jects of interest to the farmer.
"The other passenger coach will
be in charge of representatives of
Winthrop college. While the men
are being entertained and instruct
ed by a Clemson college representa
tive, Winthrop will be occupied in
giving to the women information
and instruction in the various things
that go toward making the home.
Good cooking is the key toward
the success of men in this woild as
a case of indigestion is responsible
for most of the failures. Keep a man
in good health by giving him good
sound, well prepared food to eat,
and he will accomplish wonders.
The work that Winthrop is doing
and will do on this train, therefore
strikes at the root of the future
prosperity of the country. It will
include lessons in cooking and the
hygiene of the home, and it goes
without saying that those who at
tend these demonstrations will be
both entertained and instructed.
Starts in June.
"It is planned that this train will
start out the early part of June, de
voting that month to work in the
lower or coast counties of the state
and wind up its work in the Pied
mont section. At least a month will
be devoted to each section, and it is
planned to make stops of from one
to three days in each county of the
state before the work is completed.
No stop will be made of less than a
day's duration as it will take even
more than this time to do the work
that is planned. Where more
than one stop is made in a
county they will be so distributed as
to give the greatest number of peo
ple of the county an opportunity of
visiting the train. As largely as pos
sible the stops will be made by re
quest. The people of each county
should immediately ,get together
and agree among themselves where
these stops will be most effective
and put in their application for a
visit of the train at these points,
sending same to the superintendent
of extension work, of Clemson col
lege, who is now at work preparing
the itinerary. As little time as possi

We have had another dry week to

Merry New York Party.
As has already beens announced,
after closing the business sessions
of the annual meeting of the South
Carolina Press Association in Co
lumbia, the newspaper men will
take a "trip to New York, where
they will spend a week as their out
ing for this year. The party will
sail from Charleston* Sunday morn
ing, June 4th, and will reach New
York Tuesday the 6th. An entire
week will be spent in seeing the
sights of the metropolis and in
taking side trips.
Returning, the party will leave
New York Tuesday, June 13th, and
will reach Charleston Thursday af
As each member of the press as
sociation has been accorded the.
privilege of inviting one or more
friends to take the trip, the edito.
of The Advertiser has, through
President August Eohn, made res
ervations upon the steamer for the
following persons from Edgefield:
Rev. R. G. Shannonhouse and little
Norma Shannonhouse, Mrs. Hallie
N. Greneker, Miss Ellen Dunovant,
Miss Sallie Mae Nicholson, Mrs.
Mamie Tillman, Miss Helen Till
man, Miss Pearl Padgett, Mrs. R.
C. Padgett, Miss Lillian Smith,
Miss Minnie Dicks, Miss Florence
Mims, Miss Zena Payne, of John
ston, Mr. R. C. Padgett and Mr.
W. H. Harling. It is probable that
others will go from Edgefield. Of
course The Advertiser man will go
along to chaperone the party as
well as to minister to their needs
both on land and sea. But it is like
ly that on the sea he will be more
in need of kindly ministrations than
any other member of the party.
The sixteen from Edgefield are
expecting to have the "time of their
lives," and we do not believe they
will be disappointed. The annual
press trips are always exceedingly
pleasant, as many courtesies are ex
tended to the newspaper men that
are not bestowed upon the usual ex
cursion or pleasure seeking party.
It is even now exceedingly amus
ing to hear some of the Edgefield -
ians speak of the various and varied
means they will employ to ward off
a severe attack of mal.de mere. x
