Cited For Bravery.
Mr. and Mrs. John P. Tillman have
just received a copy of the command
ing general's order citing First Lieut.
George T. Bailey of the 325th Infan
try for conspicuous conduct and
bravery on the field of battle in
France. The citation reads as follows :
fc "First Lieutenant George T. Bai
ley, 325 Infantry. . S3 - -si
"In the vai'io?? operations around
St. Juvin, France, on October 11-21,
1918, himself in leading his men on
every occasion when an attack was
made; and by his bravery, cheerful
ness and care of his men, he affoi'd
ed a fine example of courage and de
votion to duty.
"2. The commanding general takes
particular pride in announcing to the
command these fine examples of
courage and self-sacrifice. Such deeds j
are evidence of that spirit of heroism
. which is innate in the highest type of j
the American soldier and responds
unfailing to the call of duty, wher
ever or whenever it may come.
"3. This order will be read to all
organizations at the first formation
after its receipt.
"By command of Major General
"Chief of Staff."
"R. L. Boyd,
"Major, A. G. D., adjutant."
Lieut. Bailey is one of five chil
dren adopted and reared by Mr. and
Mrs. Tillman, two of whom served in
the army with distinction. Mr. and
Mrs. Tillman are justly proud of the
young people whose rearing and edu
cation they undertook, each one of
whom has made good.

Edgefield County has three four
year scholarships at Clemson this
year and three boys in our county
have a great opportunity. Clemson"
graduates are in great demand, and
a boy who can win one of these
scholarships has his life work settled.
There is also the one-year agricultu
ral scholarship. The examination will
be second Friday in July. I hope to
see a large number of boys.

HAVE YOU PLANTED
SOY BEANS WITH
If Not, Be Sure to Plant a Crop
of Them Before Mid
Clemson College.-The farmers o?
the southeastern states have not yet
come to appreciate the value of soy
beans, as a soil improver, as a food
for man. or as a feed for animals, says
Prof. Gilbeart H. Collings, of the
Agronomy Division. The soybean is
'one of the most promising legumes of
the South, and surely the South needs
to grow legumes more than any other
group of plants. In order that the
southern farmer may secure larger
and more profitable yields, the nitro
gen and the organic matter of the
soil must be built up. TbMs can be
done profitably only through the use
of legumes in our rotations.
The soybean, sometimes called the
Soja bean, soya bean, or stock pea,
was introduced into this country from
Japan during the latter part of the
twentieth century. Altho it is not a
native, the soil and climatic conditions
of the southeastern states are ideal
for its development. It is an annual
plant of upright growth, producing
large yields of both hay and grain.
At the present time soybeans are
more profitable to the average farmer
than peanuts, and when used to turn
under are equal pound per pound of
organic matter and nitrogen to cow
peas, vetch, and other legumes. They
are helter yielders than cowpeas
when planted in rows and cultivated.
They grow earlier in the spring and
later in the fall and are more r?sist
ant to drought, heat, and frost than
As a grazing crop for hogs soybeans
are among the best. As a hay crop,
altho somewhat coarse, they are much
relished by livestock. The feeding
value of the hay compares very fav
orably with alfalfa hay. As a green
manuring crop they add both organic
matter and nitrogen to the soil. A
test conducted hy the Connecticut
Agricultural Experiment Station
found that from 100 to 135 pounds of
nitrogen was returned to the soi? each
year when the crop was used for this
T(here is an ever increasing demand
for the seed, which are now being
used for a large variety of purposes.
One of the principal demands come?
from the oil mills. The soy hean seed
are very rich in oil, one bushel yield
ing on an average one gallon of oil
-when pressed. For these reasons the
acreage planted to soybeans each
year is steadily increasing and should
continue to increase for some consid
erable time to come.
The preparation of the seed bed
is the same as the preparation
of the seed bed fer cotton. How
ever, a thorough preparation must be
emphasized, for by giving the plant?
a good start a long step has been
made toward the successful produc
tion of the crop. The plant reacts
Teadily to fertilizers, especially to the
application of phosphatic fertilizers.
Some potassium can be applied profit
ably in the Coastal Plain, but nitro
gen need not be applied either in th?
Piedmont Plateau or the Coastal
Soybeans should always he planted
in rows, whether they are grown for
seed or for hay. The rows should be
'30 to 50 inches apart, depending upon
the fertility of the land and tho var
iety grown. The seed should be
planted just as cotton or corn. An
ordinary corn planter can be used
very successfully for this purpose.
About 25 to 35 pounds of medium size
seed should be planted per ac. In
planting, however, the seed should not
be planted deeper than two inches and
under normal conditions not deeper
than one and one-half inches.
Soybeans may be planted any time
from early spring until mid-summer.
For a grain crop they should be
planted early, but for a hay, pasture,
green-manure, or soiling crop they
may be planted as late as August 1st.
Cultivation should begin as soon as
the young seed are above the ground.
One deep cultivation is advised, but
. after that the cultivations should be
shallow. Level cultivation is recom
mended, because harvesting is thus
A*bout 10 to 30 bushels of grain and
1 to 6 tons of hay will be produced
per acre, depending upon the variety
of hean, the climatic conditions, the
fertility of the soil, and the cultiva
tion received. The vines are mt with
a mower or reaper, and shocked in the
field to dry. The curing is similar to
the curing of cowpea hay. The heans
may he thrashed out with an ordin
ary thrashing machine, or they may
be thrashed from the stalk by special
ly prepared harvesters.
The choice of a variety must be
mftde by the farmer himself. The
South Carolina Agricultural Experi
ment Station found that Mammoth
yellow. Browns. Austin. Tarheel Black,
and Hollybrook gave the best results
in the order named in the variety test
of soybeans conducted at that sta
tion. The Mammoth yellow is consid
ered one of the best varieties for hay!
As a general rule, in the southeast
er states the seed do n?t have to be
inoculated. This is particularly true
in the Coastal Plain soils.
If you have never tested ont the
soybean, give it a chance this year
and you will be fully repaid for your

Mignon sat perched like a little
brown bird, upon the tall show case,
in *he queer old shop. It was from
here only that she could catch a
glimpse through a small high window
nf ihe leeming street outside. For the
*?? -r- -r-.^. r- ? ; -
queer shop was in a basement of an
old stone city building, and through
Its humble doors came often those
known to fame, _?ta^a-if*-*-*?
O?d Monsieur Martinet, who had
crossed the seas and settled there so
many years ago, had gained a unique
reputation, as a costumer In his own
small way. Monsieur would attend to
but one customer at a time, as his.
wonderfully correct costumes were all
of nfs own making. Actors came here
fO" particular work, nnd now, motion
pirture actors and actresses as well;
and little Mignon, monsieur's only
daughter, possessed a certain skill ir.
mending and transforming for new
roles, garments which her father had
Mignon's life as a child was happy.
Her energetic French mother had
bustled about the shop then-and
made pretty playthings for Mignon
from bits of leftover satins. When
the'young mother was gone forever,
tho father had been most kind, and
Mignon in her effort to comfort and
help him had almost been happy
again. Then-the stepmother came.
It was difficult to believe in the step
mother; to realize that another wom
an bol'lly filled her own mother's
place. And like an olden tale that
Mignon had rcp.d, the stepmother had
daughters of her own and brought
them with her to the home rooms just
behind the shop, which Mignon'!
mother had made so pleasant. And
ns time went on, lt was the daughters,
Lucy and Lucille, who enjoyed the
privilege of music lessons, pounding
out their scales upon her mother's
dearly bought piano.
Lucy and Lucille also wore pretty
frocks and went to high school far
away on the street curs.
Monsieur was irritable now, too, al
most ft seemed that he had forgotten
his French daughter in his tireless
assistant. The stepmother formed a
habit of making fun of Mignon's dark
face-perhaps its piquant resemblance
to the pictured face which monsieur
insisted upon keeping in the parlor,
may have aroused some jealous de
mon. But Mignon could not know
th:it She could only regret, wistfully,
her own plainness.
There were those who, coming Into
the shop, thought the shy, dark-eyed
girl appealingly attractive. Men -of
the stage who would go away saying,
"Tf we could but have the face of
Martinet's silent daughter to portray
such or such a part-"
But Mignon, high on her window
seat, bent over her fairy stitches and
wondered-wondered-If it was al?
ways to be so-the music and laugh
ter of young people in the evening be
hind the store, and she-working
weary-eyed at accounts which never
would come straight. And one eve
ning when they had all gone merrily
together to the thorner. Monsieur Mar
tinet, one of the party, little aignon
struggling to finish sewin a long,
lor.z scam, fell asleep af ' dreamed a
It was she, herself, a wonderfully
transformed Mignon, who stood and
bowed from the stage which her peo
' pie were watching. And all ?bout
eager fae?3* were upraised, and friend
ly hands applauded. Mignon saw her
self with Hashing eyes and loosened
hair going through each mle; now.
She was the little "Lady Babbie," ani
now-she was driving home In her
own closed car, to a beautiful place,
where books and flowers and all the
flin:gs which she so loved pervaded.
Lucy and Lucille came to her there,
and strangely respectful was their at
titude. The stepmother, too, laughed,
but not so harshly, and exclaimed:
"Who would have thought it of th*
brown wren !"
Then, all in a pl ea siwa hie exci te
mpi-1. Mignon laughed herself, and th?
musical sound awakened her to con

his voice sounding pleased as one who
