Home Demonstration Notes
(Mrs. Vaughn's Recipe).
If you have a room that you wish
to furnish, or if your daughter's
room is not as attractive as you
. would like for it to be, why not try
the plan that was demonstrated at
tue State Fair last October?
A good sized dry goods box was
covered on top with blue burlap, and
had blue flowered cretonne pleated
around the sides. Above this hung
a mirror, and in front of this dress
ing table stood a small box covered
with cretonne which served as a seat.
In a corner of the room a "wardrobe"
was made by .tacking burlap hang
ings on a shelf. The window had
white, inexpensive curtains, with cre
tonne valance and hangings. Und?r
the window was a long box covtied
with buralp and cretonne, which serv
ed as a clothes chest as well as a win
dow seat. The wash stand was made
like the dressing table-only smaller
and with white oil cloth on top. A
burlap-covered screen stood in front
of the wash stand.
Any color of cretonne or other
suitable material could bet used, and
it would not be necessary to use bur
lap at all. The bed should be prefer
ably white iron, and the small table
and chairs would look better if en
ameled white. Rugs should be inex
pensive, such as grass or rag ones,
and should harmonize in color with
If a lack of funds keeps you from
having your house painted or screen
ed, why not raise chicMtens and tur
keys, or potatoes and peanuts or sell
some of your fancy work. There are
always ways for women and girls to
make money-and life is too short
not to have our homes and surround
ings as sanitary and attractive as we
can make them.
Try these for school lunch. They
keep moist and in excellent condition
for considerable time.

Plant Peanuts and Velvet
Nothing will do better than velvet
beans for winter grazing for hogs
and cattle. You had better get into
the game if you want to be safe for
Mr. B. Weevil and family. Get Coun
ty Agent Carvvile to order your seed
in cooperative shipments and save
money. Velvet beans are from $2.70
to 92.80 delivered. Peanuts are
$13.75 per hundred pounds deliver

prices hold good for only two weeks.

Brick Making Plant.
There is so much activity in Edge
field these days along commercial and
industrial lines that it is difficult to
keep posted right up to the minute.
The latest enteprise to be launched
is a brick manufacturing plant. The
capital stock will be $15,000, and as
much more could be raised if it were
needed. There is no doubt about it,
Edgefield people are learning to do
things. And they have the money,
too, as is shown by the bank deposits
when the bank statements are pub

W. C. T. U. Meeting.
On Monday afternoon at 4 o'clock
the regular meeting of the W. C. T.

Talk on Child Welfare-Miss
Stump Pulling Demonstration.
For the benefit of the farmers of
the Johnston and neighboring com
munities there has been arranged a
stump pulling demonstration to be
held on the farm of Hon. J. L. Walk
er, about one mile from Johnston, on
March 9. The work will begin early
in the afternoon and will last for sev
eral hours. County Agent Carwile is
trying to have several farm imple
ment dealers to bring the latest ma
chines for quickly preparing seed
beds and planting at the same opera
tion, but as yet he is uncertain of
this phase of the meeting.
Frances Willard Evening at
On Sunday evening at the Metho
dist church in the first snow of the
season, the memorial service to Fran
ces Willard was held.
Two especially interesting features
were the vocal solos by two little
girls, Lucy Scurry, who gave a story
song, "Caught," with piano accom
paniment by Mrs. Tillman, Frances
Willard Johnson, who sang, "John
Barleycorn, Goodbye," accompanied
on the piano by Mrs. C. E. May.
The prize essays were presented
to the four winners as mentioned else
where by Mr. T. B. Greneker.
The address on the Life and Work
of Frances Willard was made by Rev.
G. W. M. Taylor, whose remarks were
very entertaining and appropriate.
Now that the work for which she
so faithfully labored is largely ac
complished, her fame and greatness
is being more and more appreciated.
Had she received half the admiration
and encouragement in her life time
she might have been left to tell a
longer story to the ages.
Facts About Peanuts.
Secured by County Agent Carwile
from N. E. Winters, Agronomist and
farmer of Virginia and Texas.
Peanuts remove more plant food
than cotton. An average peanut crop
of 1,000 pounds of cured nuts and
2,000 pounds of cured hay removes
from the soil 18 pounds of phos
phoric acid, 27 pounds of potash and
contains 74 pounds of nitrogen, 2-3
of which is taken from the air if
grown in soil sweetened with lime
stone (calcium carbonate, 96 to 98
per cent pure.)
Thc average peanut crop takes
from the soil four times as much
phosphoric acid and six times as
much potash as the average cotton
crop of one third of a bale when all
stalks and leaves are returned to the
We must fertilize heavily for pea
nuts, using enough acid phosphate
to provide both phosphoric acid and
sulphur as plant foods, and enough
muriate of potash or kainit to supple
potash as plant food. In Coastal
Plains and sandy soils, all of which
are low in potash, it is very impor
tant that we use enough potash in
the fertilizer to at least satisfy crop
requirements. 300 pounds acid phos
phate, 50 pounds nitrate of soda, 60
pounds of muriate of potash (or 250
pounds of kainit) will take care of
the average peanut crop.
Mix at least 1,000 pounds of fine
ly ground (100 mesh) limestone, or
500 pounds of ?the 200 mesh lime
stone in the drill before planting the
nuts. Peanuts, like all legum?s, peas,
beans, clovers, or alfalfa, grow bet
ter in a soil sweetened with lime.
For keeping up soil fex-tility under
peanut production 'follow the crop
with Abruzzi rye and vetch for plow
If you are using one ton or more
of limestone per acre in your crop
rotation every three to five years, no
application of limestone in the drill
will be needed directly for the pea
nuts. Otherwise the use of limestone
directly on the peanut is very impor
Mr. Winters has had thirteen years
of experience growing peanuts and
several of them under -boll weevil
conditions, along with cotton.
