were not only the ladies, but many
gentlemen and representatives from
sister towns, Pudere having about 20
ladies present, and 8 from Trenton
On the stage with Mrs. Manning
were Rev. W. S. Brooke, Mrs.
James White, Commandant, and
'Mrs. M. T. Turner, Assistant Com
mandant, the latter's detachment
"naving gotten Mrs. Manning here.
The mee ting opened with
"America" sung by a chorus of
young ladies dressed in white, each |
"with the flag;" Scripture and
prayer by Rev. Brooke; "Carolina"
was sung by the chorus, after which
Mrs. Manning ?poke.
In the beginning she said that
she was no speech maker, but a home
maker. She told of the establish
ment of the Nation il Leaerue for
Woman's Service, and read resolu
tions which expressed the sentiment
of the organization, the slogan of
which is "For God, For Country
and for Home." The origin of the
detachments was explained, the
work, and number in detachment.
Thirty seemed to be a good number;
ten the least with which a detach
ment could be formed.
These detachments could be
formed in neighborhood portions.of
the town which would be conven
ient for meeting and any line of
work desired could be taken up.
The work of the women of Col
umbia, and especially that of the
"Girls of C's" was very interesting.
Good ideas for the "Camp Fire
Girls" were given. She suggested
that they knit the bath sponges.
The girls in Columbia were doing
this, and kept the ball of thread and
needle in their packet, and every
where a group of girls was to be
found, though it was not the meeting
hour, they would be knitting. She
stressed Preparedness;-plant gar
dens and can food, the women of
Columbia could be heard to say:
"Oh, you should see my collards,
cabbages, they are this high."
Some of the ladies had small gar
dens on the space used for flowers
She gave many good suggestions
to the colored women present, these
coming by invitation, and said that
she was so glad to hear that they
were going to form a Jetac. uie/.t.
Mrs. Manning explained that the
organizations were called, in the
National League "detachments"
and not "units."
Everyone greatly enjoyed and ap
preciated every word she said. She
is a most channing speaker, and
having her message at heart, made
her message all the more impressive.
After the meeting there was one
informal reception, at which time
all met Mrs. Manning and further
discussed the work with her.
The recent meeting of the New
Century Club held with Miss Mallie
Waters was one.of many pleasures.
At ibis time the report of the

In view of the present short
age of food, both in bread and
meat, it is incumbent upon
every person, as far as' means
and circumstances will permit,
to use every effort and energy
to make something to eat.
In order to encourage and
stimulate the boys and youths
of our count}* to do their part
in this tremendously impor
tant duty to our country The
Bank of Edgefield has decided
to organize our boys and
youths into pig and corn
clubs. We request that at
, least one boy between the age
: of 12 and 18 years from each
township in Edgefield count)*
attend a meeting which is
hereby called to be held at
The Bank of Edgefield on

to discuss the pig club and
corn club question. The bartk

Velvet Beans for Beef.
With prices for fat hogs quoted
at Si4 a hundred pounds and prime
cattle at *10 and ?12 a hundred,
the importance of putting every
available acre into use cannot be
questioned. The fact . that a 200
pound hog is worth ?28, and an
800-pound steer is worth nearly
one-hundred dollars, is of no im
portance to a farmer unless he has
the stock to sell, says A. P. Spen
cer of the University of Florida
Prime beef cannot be made with
ont good feed, and as there are
thousands of acres of waste land
that at some time have been under
cultivation, these lands can now be
put to a practical use. Although
the season is well advanced, there
is still time to plant velvet beans.
The cost of plowing and prepar
ing the land for velvet beans should
not exceed three dollars an acre. A
peck of bean seed can be had for
75 cents or less. If the crop is
planted in good condition, the
beans should yield from 12 to 15
bushels per acre, which if pastured
off by cattle will feed two steers for
thirty days and put them in fair
condition for killing, or will facten
one steer into prime beef.-Progres
