Very Pleasant Occasion.
On last Thursday evening Mr.
Irvin Padgett entertained in honor
of Misses Virgil and Margaret Sel
lars, Miss Rebecca Furman and
Miss Rose Jeffries. The guests ar
rived at nine o'clock. The host
nad arranged electric lights strung
across the lawn and each light cov
ered in pink prper. The guests
were greeted at the door by Mr.
and Mrs. Padgett who invited them
into the parlor where they found
the receiving line consisting of the
visitors. The room was made much
-cooler by an electric fan placed on
the centre table. After the girls
and boys chatted for a few minutes
tally cards were presented to each
one for the progressive conversation,
that necessary part of a successful
party. In a few minutes the con
versations had begun and the young
people started to find the cool and
comfortable chairs which had been
placed about in small groups over
the lawn. Each conversation lasted
five minutes. The guests were serv
ed to delightful punch during tbe
evening and at intervals between
the conversations. Most of the
evening was spent on the spacious
lawn. Near the conclusion of the
last chat delicious ice-cream and
cake were served to the guests.
Twelve o'clock was the appointed
hour for the departure of the guests.
At midnight they left delighted that
one of Edgefield's homes had been
open for the pleasant reception of
the young people in honor of the
visiting girls of Greenville and
Spartan burg. ?

Asparagus Growers Organize.
Wednesday of last week the as
paragns growers of Trenton held a
meeting for the purpose of organ
izing for mutual protection. The
meeting was attended by anparagus
growers from Aiken, Barnwell and
Bamberg. A representative of
Clemson college was present, and
also a specialist from the depart
ment of agriculture in Washington.
This was a very important meeting,
as plans were adopted looking to
the protection of asparagus growers
in marketting their product. They
are all intelligent, progressive men
who realize the advantages to be
gained through co-operative market
Time for Reform in Cotton
One place where reform is needed
is the matter of grading. It is
probably truj that no other pro
ducer of a commercial product in
all the civilized world has lost more
through undergrading than has the
cotton grower of the Southern
states. It is a maxium of law that
"No man should be judge in bis
own cause," and yet from time im
memorial the cotton buyer has been
the judge as to the grades of cotton
handled by him, while not one
grower in ten has been able to tell
whether that grading was properly
done or not. If anybody wishes to,
know in detail what the results have
been, let him send five cents to the
Division of Markets, United States
Department of Agriculture, and get
the bulletin on cotton marketing in
Okalahoma. We know of another
leading cotton oounty in which I he
state and National Departments of
Agriculture sent cotton graders last
fall, and the farmers of that county
say that never until then did they
get recognition for grades above
good middling. And in this con
nection the statement is made by
Senator J. L. McLaurin, Warehouse
Commissioner ' of South Carolina,
that not one bale of cotton out of a
thousand is sold to the mills on
which the buyer does not make a
profit on the grading in addition to
his legitimate profit as a buyer.
Hot Weather Rules for Work

3. Water your horse as often as
possible. So long as a horse is
working, water in small quantities
will not hurt him. But let him
drink only a few swallows if he is
going to stand still. Do not fail to
water him at night after he has
eaten his hay.
4. When he comes in after
work, sponge off the harness marks
and sweat, his eyes, his nose and
mouth, and the dock. Wash his
feet but not his legs.
5. Do not use a horse-hat, un
less it is a canopy-top hat. The or
dinary bell-shaped hat does more
harm than good.
6. A sponge on top of the head,
or even a cloth, is good if kept wet.
If dry it is worse than nothing.
7. If the horse is overcome by
heat get him into the shade, remove
harness and bridle, wash out his
mouth, sponge him all over, shower
bis legs, and give him two ounces of
aromatic spirits of ammonia, or two
ounces of sweet spirits of nitre, in
a pint of water; or give him a pint
of coffee, warm. Cool his head at
once, using cold water, or, if neces
sary, chopped ice, wrapped in a
8. Watch your horse. If he
stops sweating suddenly, or if he
breathes short and quick, or if his
ears droop, or if he stands with his
legs braced sideways, he is in dan
ger of a heat or sun stroke and
needs attention at once.
9. If it is so hot that the horse
sweats in the stable at night, tie
him outside, with bedding under
him. Unless he cools off during
the night, he cannot well stand the
next day's heat.-Progressive Far
