a full page advertisement this week
in which he informs the shoppers
of this section of the unprecedent

to carry aver-goods, so in order to i
dispose of them he cuts the price <
very low. He guarantees every ar- ,
tide he advertises to be exactly as
he represents it to be. If in need
of light weight goods call to see

A GOOD LETTER
The following letter from Hon. '
Fitz Hugh McMaster, Insurance
Commissioner, is greatly appr?cia- ^
ted by the officers, stockholders and j
policy holders of the first legal re- .
serve Life Insurance Compauy ever
organized in South Carolina.
Columbia, S. C., I
May 14, 1913. f
Mr. T. O. Lawton, Manager, \
Southeastern Life Insurance Co.,
Greenville, S. C.
I bad occasion recently to review .
in part the progress of insurance
since I nave been Insurance Com
I was struck with the fact that
when I became Insurance Commis
sioner, the Southeastern Life had
total assets of about 134,000. It
has now assets of abort ?380,000,
practically increasing 200 per oent.
in four years.
When I realize that all ot these
assets are invested in South Caro
lina securities and that every dollar
you spend for officers' salaries and
expenses is spent in South Carolina,
I can but real.ze the excellent work
you are doing in South Carolina in
keeping this money in the State
which would otherwise go beyond
its borders, part of it never to re
turn. The people of South Caro
lina should appreciate this fact.
(Signed) F. H. McMaster,
(Note: Since the statement to
Insurance department the assets
have increased to 1430,000.00.)
G. M. Mellichamp,
"What's the wrangle about in
"Some of the community want to
maintain mudholes and swell their
private fortunes by hauling auto
mobiles ont. Others want to im
prove the highway, pinch 'era for
speeding and apply the proceeds to
public works of all kinds."
There seems to be much confu
sion among some of our. readers
about the reseeding habits of the
so-called winter legumes. .The vetch
es,- bur clover and crimson clover
are annuals. That is, they must
come from seed each year. The vetch
es and bur clover if allowed to ripen
on the land will reseed it,even tho'
some other crop may be growing
on the land the same season after
the vetch or bur clover is turned
under or the seed allowed to fall on
the gTouud. The vetch Beed does
not seem to germinate freely until
fall, while if some of the bur clover
seed germinate, the free or abun
dant seeding habit of the plant and
the protection of the seeds in the
bu/s, leave plenty of seed to re
seed the land in the fall. Crimson
clover seed which fall to the ground
on the ripening or plowing under
of the mature plants in May or early
June have a grea', tendency to ger
minate and get killed by the hot,
dry weather of July and August,
especially in the cotton belt, so that
it is necessary to sow orimson clover
seed in?every fall in order to obtain
a good stand.-Progressive Farmer
