"Uncle Iv" Writes of What]
He Has Read in The
* Advertiser.
Well, Mr. Editor, as I am about
broke down I will /take this foggy!
morning to scribble rou just a few]
lines.
In 'your issne of t|be 6th tbers was ]
in adjoining columns''a lefter from
Pindar (W. J. Roohelle) and my
self and oo the same page a letter j
from J. J. Garnett and as I read
those letters my mind went back
to our boyhood days, days, if I see
things right, quite different frora^
those days. Pindar is the oldest of j
the trio. Now he and Jabez are in,
the far west and I am hundred
miles from our boyhood homes and
neither one of us can expect to be
?here in this life but avery few more
years and possibly but a few months
or even days bat what does that
matter,if we are what we should/be.
In your issue of this week it was
quite different from the week be:
fore. Three deaths chronicled, two j
of them I knew well,. Mrs. V?inn
and Mrs. W. J. Talbert and the
other Mrs. Lewis Wood whose par
ents I knew and to each of the be-]
reaved 1 send my deepest sympathy.
For I know for years ago I too wa?
[called upon to pass through the
deep waters of sorrow. We some
times wonder why God does some
' things as he does, bat let us remem
< ber that He makes no mistakes and
if we are His children some time
we may know, and be glad it was j
just as God saw flt to do. Trust)
God is the thing to do through all
our trials. It is hard I know bot
God is just and does not bring these
sorrows for naught. Oh, no. He has
a purpose in all that He does. It
does net matter what we may think
about His dealings with us. It is
for somebody's good.
I guess this will be tho last from
me in this section as we are doing
our very best to be ready to move
to our new place of abode and
among strangers again, about the
last week in this month D, V.

beautiful and there should have
been a large attendance, bnt not sp.
Thercwas only ? scattering congre
gation and-as Mrs. T. J. Briggs was j
sick the Sambeams had no leader so j
did not have a meeting.
Next Thursday afternoon, the
woman's missionary society is to"
have a meeting at Mrs. L. W.
Reese's if tine continues to improve.
She has been quite sick and we are J
glad to hear she is able to be up
again. Mr. and Mrs. Cbeatham have
been down with malaria as well as
Mrs. Reese. Mrs. Ellie Briggs, Mrs.
T. J. Briggs, Mrs. John Roper and

and all his family, Messrs. Martin
and Henry Medock and Mrs. Fran
ces Townes. All these people have
malaria, in fact, it is wide spread j
and was never so before the river |
and c reek were flooded. We ' are
glad to see Miss Irene Scott back j
from North Augusta looking much
better since her stay there, but fear J
she ca me borne too early as she was j
advised to stay until after frost.
. _ We were glad .to see Mr. Ed

.to ride around Saturday, last.N?orry
to hear of Mr. Charlie Hammond's

There were th ree ch ar m in g teach

from Greenwood and Miss Mary
Townes from North Augusta.
Young folks are rather scarce in
our neighborhood and those who
are here, should do more visiting
and make tbe spare moments of
these teacher girls and the home j
girls have more pleasant winters.
The roadp as yet are very good un
til we reach the Aiken county roads j
and they are badly out up and in j
bad dug out holes, and we all do so
much wish they were pat ia good
condition 'before winter. They were ?
almost impassable all of last winter.
So boys be ap and doing aud visit
the girls, while the roads are good
and take them oat for a spin, bat,
dojaot stop wheo they get bad, the
roads I mean, not the girls. Visit
and make the time pass pleasantly
or the girls will be homesick or
heartsick and go home. We hope
they are immune to malaria and wilt
not be sick in that way.
We hear' Mr. Erank Parkman
was married to an Augusta gM last j

A Timely Appeal From the
County Demonstration
Agent
?
Editor Advertiser: The time is at
hand when the farmer must decide
whether be will protect his land
from the winter leaching* and eva
sions of covering it with a carpet of
green to beautify the landscapes
and add fertility to his soil. Every
farmer that hasn't rye he certainly
has oats. If you value your repu
tation as a farmer; if yon are look
ing out for the best interest of your
children by -giving them the best
school advantages in the country;
if you would bring back the youth
ful* blush to check of your beloved
partner, if you would make it easy
to pay your honest debts, you.
must add fertility to your soil, and
do it nature's way by adding or
ganic matter especially green mat
ter. The decomposition of green
organic matter such as rye, oats,
wheat better still-, clover or vetch,
brings into availability latent plant
food that most soils in Edgefield
already have, oaloiura, magnesium,
potassium, . phosphor us etc., To see
a field unprotected by a winter crop
reminds me of an old lean mule or
house out on a cold snowy wintry
night standing in a fence corner
hungry and cold waiting for day so
that his owner might give him a
bundle of dry oats tra w and band
full cf condition powder with high
expectations of making a crop with
bim. This picture of the starved
work animal is on a parity With
the farmer who expects big crops
by using any old stuff called guano
especially the ready for use that we
buy in .bags. I often think it be
ing in bags has much to do with
the purchase. Exchange your seed
for meal buy your acid, and do your
own mixing.
Some time since I advised far
mers to hold'their cotton, that there
were no pressing debts at this time.
The statement admitted qualifica
Rhich I failed to give, name
raighl be debts"that called
dy adjustment Of course
under such circumstances youshould
attend to it and save.your good
name.
Farmers have the .situation well
in hand if they run their next years
operations on the same schedule. A
year from now we will be in posi
tion to protect ourselves against or
ganized forces that buy our produce
at their own price, then we will be
prosperous and make bankers and
merchants happier.
If you have an idea of making
changes in your acreage don't pinch
off from your small graig; on the
other hand sow more wheat ind do
not cut your oat crops.
The Johnston Flouring mills are
now supplying several grocerytuen
at Johnston with pure flour (not
chemically treated.)Their customers
prefer it. They know what, they
are buying and oatt tell what they
are eating even in the dark. We
suspect there never would have
been such a malady as pellagra if
our people had never bought their
principle food manufactured: ^else
where. Mr. Herb rt G. ' Biddon,
president of the Johnston Milling
company, informed the. writer that
the company intended buying wheat
and run ' their plant. all the year.
Plant your same acreage, keep up
your live stock interest. Then make
all the cotton you can.

Poem by Rev. John Lake. v
The following is taken from the
bulletin of the First Baptist church
of Seattle, Wash.
Rev and Mrs. John Lake, who
have been resting in our city for
the past few months, sail tomorrow
for their mission field in South
China. They have greatly endear
ed themselves to our church and
may be assured of our constant love
and prayers. The. following poem
is from Mr. Lake's facile pen:1
Submission.
"Father, please!"-the only cry '
My hungry heart could give:
"Father, please!-or let rae.die;
I could not bear to live!"
But tight came not, nor joy, nor peace:
My groaning heart found no release.
"As you please, 0 Father/' then
My heart was weary, sore
"I cannot plead my cause again;
I cannot wrestle more!,
And. when my fainting soul awoke,
The boon was granted ere. I spoke.
