CARD FROM REV. F. A. WEAVER.
?* Mr. Editor:
Please let me have a few words
again to say to the public. Many of
us have made pledges to the govern
ment and have, carried out our obli
gation, and many have made a pledge
to God and have failed to carry out
their obligation to Him.
We paid for Liberty Bonds, we
bought War Savings Stamps, we
prayed for the return of our boys and
many of them came back to us, and ,
yet, and yet there is unrest. God is
not satisfied with the nations. We can
look for peace but there will be no
peace until man will sign a treaty
with God. We may look for the Son
of God on earth again but He will not
come until every nation shall reap
what they have sown. Some of them
have already reaped in part but God
is not satisfied yet. Every knee must
bow and every tongue shall confess
that God is God. -
Seemingly, the world is gone after
vain glory. God is not satisfied. You
remember when Haman had erected
a gallows to hang Mordecai on ?.nd
when he saw he was about to reap
what he had sown, with all of his ad
vancement in life, he said "All this
availeth me nothing so long as I see
Mordecai sitting at the king's gate."
So they hanged Haman on the gal
lows he had prepared for Mordecai.
^Every man must reap what -he sows
or it will fall upon his children or his
Sow the seed of love with thy fel
. lowman-and through this channel we
will be able to sign peace with God
and we will not be ashamed to reap
in the day of harvest. .
God is not satisfied so long as sin
rages on earth. Do unto all men as
you would them do unto you. You
may expect calamity on thir, earth un
til man shall turn his face towards
God. As it was in the days of Noah,
so shall it be ni the days of the com
ing of the Son of Man. Draw nigh un
to God and he will draw nigh unto
Yours for the cause,
REV. F. A. WEAVER.
FARMING WORTHY OF MEN.
It may be true that more uneduca
ted men with very few opportunities
for training in youth succeed in farm
ing than in other occupations. But
that does not argue that farming is
not an occupation worthy of an edu
cated man. In fact there are many ex
amples of men who have shown that
modern farming in its various branch
es is worthy of education, talent and
Every young man of clean habits
and pure motives is worthy of a prac
tical education. And he is entitled to
an opportunity to serve in society
with refined, intelligent and progress
ive people where his efforts will re
ceive due recognition.
Farming under present day condi
tions is worthy of the most highly
educated and the most capable young
men. Like other business, it is large
ly what those who follow it make the
occupation. Success in farming de
pends upon the efforts of the men
As viewed by some men who esti
mate gross receipts only, farming
may not compare favorably with sal
aried positions or wage earners now
on short working days and higher
wage scales. But if comfortable liv
ing; quiet, contented home life;
health, vigor and high ideals; honor,
purity and good will are estimated
with net jncome from the farm, fann
ers may well be proud of ther occu
The future is bright for young men
who have knowledge and experience
in farming. Thc demand for cr ?
and livestock products are likely to
give better compensation for those

BROWN ROT IN FRUIT.
Save Your Peaches and Plums From
. This Destructive Disease.
Clemson College.-Brown rot of
peach and plum is one of the most
widespread and destructive diseases
of fruit that we have to contend with
In many cases the entire crop is de
stroyed just as the fruit begins to
ripen. Practically every orchard in
South Carolina is infected with it and
while it is widespread and very de
structive, it is at the same time easy
to control, according to Director H.
W. Barre, of the South Carolina Ex
periment Station, by spraying with
There are numerous commercial
brands of lime-sulfur 0U the market
and some of these have been tested
by careful experimenters and found
to be very satisfactory. The ordinary
commercial lime-sulfur solution has
been used at the rate of one
part to eighty parts of water
with fair success. This mixture
will control broun rot. Some
times, however, and under certain
conditions of temperature and humid
ity, it destroys a certain percentage
of the foliage. The safest and best
mixture to use is the home-made self
boiled lime-sulfur mixture, made as
follows: Use S lbs. of fresh quick
lime and 8 lbs. of sulfur (flour )to 50
gals, of water. Make this up by plac
ing the eight pounds of fresh lime in
a tub or barrel and add just enough
water to slake it. An excess cf water
seems to drown the lime and retards
the slaking process. As .soon as the
lime begins to crumble apart -and a
violent boiling is set up, add eight
pounds of sulfur and stir in thorough
ly, adding .enough water to keep any
part of the mixture from becoming dry
or burning. Keep this well stirred
and allow the boiling to continue for
5 to 10 minutes. Special care should
be exercised at this time to keep any
part. of the mixtur? from becoming
dry. Enough water should be added,
in fact, so that the paste is thin
enough to be easily stirred. After the
boiling has continued 5 to 10 minutes
enough water sholud be added to cool
The trees should be sprayed two to
three weeks after the shucks drop,
and again at intervals of from two to
four weeks until the fruit begins to
Easy Control Measures Prevent Great
Clemson College.-Oat Smut is the
most widespread and destructive dis
ease of small grain. It frequently oc
curs as a serious disease wherever
oats are grown if proper control meas
ures are not practiced. This disease
alone reduces the production of oats
in this State by at least 10 per cent,
and in some fields there are losses as
high as 50 per cent, which can easily
be prevented by inexpensive seed
treatment, says J. L. Seal, Extension
Service plant pathologist. *
This disease is caused by a fungus
which grows within the the tissues of
the plant. The spores germinate
about the same time that the young
oat plants come up. and the filaments
of the fungus remain alive in the oat
plants without apparently causing any
serious damage until the plants begin
to head in the spring. It then con
centrates its efforts in the oat heads
and fills up the places where the
grains should form with- the black,
sooty masses of its spores.
As these masses of spores break up."
they are scattered by the wind to all
parts of the field. Many of them lodge
on healthy heads of oats in the field,
while others are infested in the thresh
ing operation; hut in both cases the
spores remain alive on the grain until
planted in the fall.
SeedN for planting should not be
saved from fields that show over 2 to
"> per cent of smutted heads, and in
that case the seed should be treated.
Even if a field is practically free of
smuts and there are smutty fields
near it, the seed should he treated.
In fact, the .material for seed treat
ment is so inexpensive that there is
no reason why all grain seed to he
planted should not be treated before
If there \$ a neighbor in your com
munity who treated his oat seed last
fall, compare your field with his and
see if there is not money saved by
such a practice.
STEM-EN,., AOT OF WATER
Clemson College.-This* disease is
comparatively new, but it causes a
serious loss of melons in transit.
There was a loss of 2.500 carloads of
melons shipped from the southeast
ern stales last summer, due entirely
to this disease. It is seldom found, in
the field and the shipper is often as
tonished that 40 to 60 per cent of his
melons rotted in transit, when at the
time of shipping they are apparently
in good condition.
The stem-end rot fun eus is common
on ripe or dying vegetati in and
around melon fields, esp. ially on
cotton and corn stalks and old melon
vines. These become covered with
black fruiting bodies of the fungus in
which countless snores are borne and
from which they are scattered by tho
wind. When a melon is cut from the
vine, a drop of sap exudes from thp
cut stem and provides ideal conditions
for infection. The knives and hand;
of workmen are often carriers of ir
fection. and thus perfectly healthy
melons may become diseased.
A good stockman must he a sur
cessful producer of ieeds.
