Planning For Heavy Canning
Mr. J. H. Bu?sey who resides
near Red Hill church was in town
Thursday and remembered The Ad
vertiser by bringing us a generous
portion of delicious strawberries.
Mr. Bussey hasj made an enviable
reputation by canning vegetables
and fruit in large quantities. He
says the fruit has practically all
been killed but he planted more
largely of early vegetables than
usual. For several years Mr. Bussey's
cannery has been supplying the S.
C. C. I. with canned fruit and vege
tables, tho kind that can withstand
the most ligid inspection under the
pure food law. He only uses the bent
of everything. Some of the other
colleges in the state are in commu
nication with Mr. Bussey with
reference to making a contract for
next session. Mr. Bussey has been
so well pleased with the cannery
which he has been using for che
past five years that he has accepted
the agency and caa supply them in
any size. Attention is called to his
advertisement in this issue.
Cane Made of Cotton Stalk.
Mr. J. M. Prescott was io town
several days ago, having brought

very unique in that it was made of

Mr. Holmes' yard. The handle was
carved of walnut and was securely
fastened to the end of the cotton
stalk, which was so beautifully pol
ished and varnished that it resem
bled the ordinary cotton stalk but
little. Mr. Holmes now resides in
