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.

Clemson College.-The farmers of
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. This can be
done profitably only through the use
j 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 iind 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 pram.
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 better yielders than cowpeas
when planted in rows and cultivated.
They grow earlier in the spring and
later in the fall and are more resist
ant to drought, heat, and frost than
As a grazing crop for hogs soybean
are among the best. As a hay crop,
altho somewhat coarse, they are much
relished hy 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 by the Connecticut
Agricultural Experiment Station
found that from 100 to 135 pounfts of
nitrogen was returned to the soil each
year when the crop was used for this
Tjhere is an ever increasing demand
for the seed, which are now beinp
used for a large variety of purposes.
One of the principal demands come?
from the oil mills. The soyhean 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 bc
emphasized, for by giving the plants
a good start a long step has been
made toward the successful produc
tion of the crop. The plant reacts
readily to fertilizers, especiallv to th?
application of phosphatie fertilizers.
Some potassium can be applied profit
ably in the Coastal Plain, but nitro
gen need not he applied either in th?
Piedmont Plateau or the Coastal
Soybeans should always be planted
in rows, whether they are grown for
sped or for hay. The rows should be
'20 to 50 inches apart, depending upon
the fertility of the land and the 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 nf medium size
seed should be planted per ac<v 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 Hm?
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 thoy
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
Ahout 10 to 30 bushels of grain and
1 to 6 tons of hay will be produced
per acre, depending upon the variety
of bean, the climatic conditions, the
fertility of the soil, and the cultiva
tion received. The vines are cut with
a mower or reaper, and shocked in the
field to dry. The curing is similar to
the curing of cowpea hay. The beans
may be 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
ern states the seed do nat have to be
inoculated. This is particularly true
in the Coastal Plain soils.

soybean, give it a chance thia year

Mignon sat perched like a little
brown bird, upon the tall show case,
In *he queer old shop. It was from

glimpse through a small high window
of ihe leeming street outside. For the
queer sliop was in a basement of an
old stone city building, and through
Its humble doors came often those
known to fame, ^*c*&i%& -
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 his own making. Actors came here
fo'- particular work, and now, motion
picture actors and actresses as well;
and little Mignon, monsieur's only
daughter, possessed a certain skill lr.
nx-nding and transforming for new
roles, garments which her father had
Mignon's life as a child was happy.
Her energetic French motlier had
bustled about the shop then-and
made pretty playthings for Mignon
from bits of leftover satins. When
the"young mother was gone forever,
til? 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 ?ras difficult to believe in the step
mother; to realize that another wom
an boldly filled her own mother's
pince. And like an olden tale that
Mignon had road, the stepmother had
daughters of her own and brought
th-?m with her to the home rooms just
behind the shop, which Mignon'i
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 seules upon her mother's
dearly bought piano.
Lucy nnd Lucille nlso wore pretty
frocks and went to high school far
away on the street curs.
Monsieur was irritable now, too, al?
most il 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 monsieui
Insisted upon keeping in the parlor,
may have aroused some jealous de
men. But Mignon could not know
that She could only regret, wistfully
her own plainness.
There were those who, coming Inte
the shop, thought the shy, dark-eyet
girl appealingly attractive. Men ol
the stage who would go away saying
"Ti we could but have the face ol
Martinet's silent daughter to portraj
6U<"h or such a part-"
But Mignon, high on her window
seat, bent over her fairy stitches and
wondered-wondered-If it was a!
ways to be so-the music and laugh
ter of young people in the evening be
hind the store, and she-workinj
weary-eyed at accounts which nevei
would come straight. And one eve
nlng when they had all gone merrily
tog'ther to the theater. Monsieur Mar
tinet, one of the porty, little IVOgtior
struggling to finish sewing a long
lone seam, fell ask-*p and dreamed i
It was she, herself, a wonderful!}
transformed Mignon, who stood and
bowed frotn the stage which her peo
' pie were watching. And all abott
eager faces were upraised, and friend
ly hands applauded. Mignon saw her
self with flashing eyes and loosener
hair going through each role; now
she was the little "Lady Babbie," and
now-she was driving home In hei
own closed car, to a beautiful place
where hooks and flowers and all ?H
filings which she so loved pervaded
Lucy and Lucille came to her there,
and strangely respectful was their at
ti'.ude. The stepmother, too. laughed
but not so harshly, and exclaimed:
"Who woukl have thought it of th?
brown wren !"
Then, all In a pleasurable excite
m?i.t. Mignon laughed herself, and th?
musical sound awakened her to con

And Mignon who had known the
friendly actor for some tIr*?o. although
her shyness had not allrivud her to
speak much to him, under *ome Influ

and told him nil about lt. Even, she
loosened her hair like Lady Babbie
of the play, and laughed at him
through Its veil to show exactly how
it should be done.
"By George!" cried the movie Idol,
his voice sounding pleased as one who
ha? come upon a surprising discovery.
"I'll teach you," he added enthusias
tically, "I will make you. I'm com

And he did.

all, more wonderful than the dream
which came true. For little Mignon
