Working Land Wet.
"Please explain the damage done
to land and crop by plowing when too '.
A clayey soil plowed when wet will
dry hard and will be cloddy all sum
mer and hard to work. The clods will.;
keep the soil to open to the air that it ?
will dry out faster than if well pul- ;
verized. Then xhe hard clods cannot 1
be utilized by the plant roots and the
food is locked up. Never plow land
when it slips shiny from the mold
board. Plow when it crumbles easily
and when grasped in the hand will
fall apart when released. Soil in that1
condition can be finely pulverized1
with a harrow immediately after
plowing and will be easily worked all
summer and more productive because
the roots of the plants can get at the j,
food, and the soil moisture will be
diffused through the soil and held ,
there by . proper cultivation.-Pro-1,
Cut This Out and Take it With You.
A man often forgets the exact
name of the article he wishes to pur
chase, and as a last resort takes some
thing else instead. That is always dis
appointing and unsatisfactory. The
safe way is to cut this out and take it
with you so as to make sure of get
ting Chamberlain's tablets. You will
find nothing quite so satisfactory for
constipation and indigestion.
Missionary Meeting at Berea.
Thi! meeting of the first division of
mission societies at Berea on Satur
day was a great success from a view
point of interest. Four societies out
of the seven Woman's Societies were |1
represented, and the reports showed
that in spite of the unpropitious win
ter, the work was on the consciences '\
of the women, even though they i
could not meet regularly. n
Mrs. W. B. Cogburn, division pres- i
ident, was in charge and Miss Hor- ;]
tense Padgett acted as secretary. ;<

Berea had furnished a sumptuous (

said no people could ever make such i
?ood pies as those who live at Berea. j
The afternoon session was in f

The original idea of an evening de
voted to the young students of our
county was that all of our young men
and women should thus be enabled
io keep the touch with the home
folks, with our county as the unit.
There are young people who grow
jp and go to college or are students
ind who secure positions or are mar
ried in other localities whose attain
nents the people of the county at
arge never know. It has been said re
:ently, that the great Bishop Mc
Tyeire of the Methodist church was
jorn in Edgefield county, but he
.vent away and the place of his na
;ivity is not known. There was no op
?ortunity to link him in everlasting
nemory with all the people of his
:ounty, so that they might enjoy his
ipward progress and help to speed

Mrs. Tillman has taken much care
o secure this list by correspondence
ind otherwise, and it is possible there
nay be others whose name has not

lotify Mrs. Tillman, Regent of the
Cdgefield D. A. R. at once, as plans
ire in progress for the ? rtainment.
Everybody is i; -ted in the
?oung people of county, and
hould come and what they do, en
ourage them I the subject of edu
ation. Thc;, should induce all the
?oung people to attend who are not
tudents, that they may become
timulated with a proper ambition
o undertake similar accomplish
All students who have Esprit de
^orps, all who have any college pride
ir loyalty should come and represent
heir alma mater. If you are the only
tudent in Edgefield county from ?h '
nstitution of learning, it is all the
nore incumbent on you to come and

vhich has been your choice. If there
re a dozen from your county in the
chool you attend, see that all are

it any rate, come when you are call
id upon to be present and take part
vith the sixty-one other students
vhose names follow.
The admission to this entertain
nent will be 50, 35 and 25 cents and
viii be used for a purpose for which
verybody in our county will be re
oiced to give, a memorial tablet for
iur dead heroes lying in Flanders
fields. This tablet will be erected on
he Edgefield Court House.
Our people will be given a happy ,
.pportunity to contribute to this

?eighbors and friends and their own

Just before the entertainment, the
itudents will be served with an out
