The farmers are truly 'making
hay whiie the sun shines" reaping
the abundant harvest which the
rains of August provided. They
ire aiso making preparations lo put
in a large oat crop and were provi
dent enough to save their own seed.
So the high price of that product
will not affect them. The Ful gi um

Since this disastrous fall in the
price of cotton one of our farmers
lias decided to somewhat change his
tactics. Mr. W. M. Rowland, who
has bought a quantity of hom and
sattle wire, and will raise porkers
ind beef for market, but will not

his allegiance by giving him the

Protracted Meering Conducted

Smith. Encouraging
School Opening.
Mr. Editor:- We have had with
us for the past week Rev. Mr.
Smith from McCormick who has
been conducting* a series of meet
ings here in our Baptist church.
Much enthusiasm was shown, and
the community will undoubted
experience much lasting benah
from the untiring earnestness and
devotion of this able minister. We
hope to have Mr. Smith back with
us again soon. A great addition to
our meeting was the sweet music
rendered by Miss Lucy Osborne,
formerly from North Carolina, but
now of Parksville. During the
meeting she and her sister sang a
very sjrveet solo, which I am quite
sure was enjoyed by all who heard
it. We are glad to have these good
people who have come to make
their home in Parksville with us
and we welcome them heartily.
We are sorry to report that Mr.
and Mrs. J. J. Gilmer and children
have been on the sick list for the

Lancaster Citizen Writes New
Hymn.
i
DESIGNED To AVOID O1UECT10XS !
!:.\I>KI> TO MY nOUXTRY, 'TIS
OF THEE.'
James II. Thayer, Th. D., of
Lancaster has written a hymn, to !
the tune of "Greenland's Icy Munn-1
tains," having been moved to the <
task by criticisms heard and read of i
"My Country, 'Tis of Thee."
"i do not. agree," says Mr. Thay
er, with the ernies of our national '.
hymn because I think sentiment is j
inure than form. However, this j
hymn of mine I have striven to ;
make nation-wi le in character as '
well as sentiment.'"
The hymn is entitled A Mighty j
Nation Calleth." It consists of live i
stanzas and is as follows:
'Where breaks the northern ocean .
Upon New England's short-:
Where sun-kissed southern waters,
Send back their answering roar; :
From wavering western prairies, j,
To palm and orange grove,
A mighty nation calleth, l?
Our love, our hearts, to prove.
''From far the alien Hocking
Our ports and cities throng;
Amid our golden harvests
Is heard their shout and song;
And where the southern breezes
O'er corn and cotton blow;
Two races dwell contented,
And live and thrive and grow.
'O'er hill and plain and liver.
The solemn church bells peal;
From school house and from play
ground,
Tue children's voices steal.
Fnun ocean unto ocean,
Upon the restless tide,
The Stars and Stripes are waving,
Our hope, our joy, cur pride.
"God bless our mighty nation!
United may we be;
The Lord ol' hosts our captain,
His word our guide to be.
From ocean unto ocean,
From palm to waving pine,
Thj' nane shall e'er be houored,
Great Ood, and only thine."

Statement Concerning The
Business Outlook.
Mr. Editor:- I enjoyed tlie privi
lege of participating in a confer
ence of our farmers and other busi
ness men, in our court house on
last salesday, and ? was greatly
gratified at the spirit of wisdom,
moderation and justice which was
manifested; and upon the adjourn
ment of the meeting, I felt satisfied
thar, our people would meet th?1
emergencies which confrunt them
in that spirit of co-operation which
is essential to a wise and just solu
tion of unusual and unexpected
conditions.
Since that day a great deal has
been said, and a great deal has been
written, concerning the best policy ?
!:o be pursued by our people under
Lhe conditions which exist.
Since that day many bankers in (
Dur state, and in other states, have
made propositions which were in- '
;ended to ameliorate the conditions 1
jf their respective .patrons. These '
propositions have been practically f
is various as they have been nu- 1
nerous. In point of fact, much va- '
.iety of suggestion must exist when ^
.he condition of one citizen, or of
me community, differs so much
Tom those of another, that the so- *
ution of one condition might be r
he aggravation of another. 1
At our meeting on salesday many "
varying conditions were represent- a
id., There were citizens present, who '
lave no cctton, and who owe no r
nouey, but, need ni o ne;, for neces- v
?arv purposes. There were citizens "
vho have no cotton, and who owe
none?, and must obtain money for v
leeessarv uses. I'here were citizens c:
vho have cotton, bal owe more v
abney than thev can realize on :
heir cotton at current prices. Many 1
Inferences exist in the conditions c
)f our people. Since that day I am j*
atisfied that the general con->
litiou has very much improved;
md I am satisfied that conditions 1
viii continue, to improve; andi feel }
;onndent that before long we will 1
di be getting along in the usual '
vay. 1
Asl write I observe in a leading '
kl i to rial that t!it chances are that
hree weeks from now the main ^
mases of the problem will have d<*- 11
ined themselves much mure deli- 1
lit'3!v than at present, and that we :1
mall be able tn see our way more 1
dearly towards a satisfactory sola- '
ion. j
I concur in the opinion of this e
K?tor; and hence I am writing a i
?rief statement of my views >iiice L|
[ had the pleasure of staling them ; '
it our meeting i?n salesday.
I have no distinct proposition to:v
.iahe t'i the patrons and friends of
he Bank of Ed ge ii eld that would j
ipp'y exactly equally satisfactorily 8
o the conditions ?d' each one of -
hem; "out u gives me pleasure to '."
. ive the assurance that we will do 'I
mr best to take care of everyone v
>f them. I am satisfied that those 1
rho are indebted will do their best '.'
md I wish all to feel assured that j '
ve will do our liest; and the spirit
d' mu tu a j co-operation will result -
n a satisfactory solution ofcondi-p
ions as they may arise.
In my judgment conditions are v
lot as bad as the surface indicates. '
have known cotton to sell here in j '
mr town, and in Augusta, and in
New Voil;, for much less than itIa
low brings. 1 have known much
nore gloomy conditions than now | J
txisi. I have seen darker and lower j1
?louds than those confronting us; a
md I am satisfied that in a shori '.'
,ime conditions will adjust them
selves and settle down upon,a nor
na! basis.
Very respectfully,
J. 0. Sheppard,
President Bank of Edgefield.

j Well I believe everybody is very
busy in this section gathering their
crops, cotton picking being the oc
cupation of most all the fanners, as
it seems to be opening so fast. As
the price is so low and no demand
hardly at all, they will have to hold
it for a while and we all hope war
erie? will soon be ended, and cotton
a better price than it has been for
many years.
