That Trenton Dinner.
Great spoons, who can read of
that grand Thanksgiving turkey
dinner, which the Trenton ladies
are going to serve, without resolv
ing to go and partake of it? After
seeing the list of good thing.-? that
will be served, as given by our
Trenton correspondent this week,
one is convinced that "times" are
not "hard" aronnd Trenton. In
stead of banding already-served,
meagrely helped plates that one
somet? rn 64 falls heir to on s a oh oc
casions, the Trenton ladies will sit
yon down to a table cPhote dinner
that will be fit for any king now in
volved in the European war. Not
only the published mena, bat the
cause for which the dinner will be
given, should also appeal to the
people, insuring a large patronage.
As it appeared that cholera had
attacked some hogs on the farm of
Mrs. Lucy Dupas, the matter was
reported to Clemson college with
the request that a veterinarian be
sent at once to make an examina
tion of the hogs and to administer
the scrum should it prove to be
cholera. In response to the request.
Dr. H. L. Simpson came down
from Clemson yesterday and after
a thorongh diagnosis pronounced
the disease cholera. The sick hog
and the other hogs on the premises
have all been vaccinated. It is be
lieved that the disease can be
stamped out before it spreads. Dr.
Simpson says the college will al
ways send a specialist promptly up
on request to investigate diseases

Death entered the home of Mr.
George W. Mathis Tuesday after

woman was prepared to pass through
the valley of the shadow of death
She has served her Master from
girlhood and now He bas called her
up higher. She will be greatly miss
ed in her home, in her
chnrch, Red Hill, and in her com
munity. Mrs. Mathis was genuinely
beloved, and the severing of earth
ly ties has caused profound sorrow
in the hearts of a host of friends.
She is survived by her husband,

America's Greatest Grass
GROW SUD?N GRASS
The most wonderful grass of the age, introduced and endorsed
by the U. S. Agricultural Department. Tested severely by the
farmers in all parts of Texas successfully. Makes more seed and
better hay than any other forage plant known. Under ordinary
circumstances produces 300 to 600 pounds of seed and three to six
tons of choice hay per acre the same season. Adapted to all sorts
of soil. Resists severest drought and does well in wet weather.
Takes two to four pounds of seed to an acre in drills, and sixteen
to twenty-four pounds broadcast. Equals timothy in quality of
hay, and all kinds of live stock prefers it to alfalfa. Last spring
the seed sold for $2.00 to $4.00 per pound, and all who grew it
then will sow more next year. It is now selling for $1.00 per
pound, and will go higher before next spring, as the supply is lim
ited. We wiil send pure Sudan seed, prepaid by parcel post, for
$1.00 per pound, in lots of fifty pounds and under, not less than
one pound considered. Larger lots by freight cheaper. Better
send for seed now and be sure of getting it and save money, and
then make more money next season. Every one who can should
try this great grass. Address

Box 15. Texas.
