Meeting of Agricultural Commit
tee Chamber of Commerce.
j Several days ago A. B. Carwile,
chairman of the agricultural com
mittee of ihe Edenfield Chamber of
Commerce, called the agricultural
committee together for a discussion
of the problems facing the people
interested in tbe welfare of the
farming interests of the county.
Among the things taken up the
most important to us just now is
the matter of securing a cotton
grader for the county. The benefit
of such a man cannot be told in
such a short space. We shall only
point you to the other sections of
the State where the graders have
been instrumental in raising the
price of cotton several cents per
pound where they have been at
work. Anderson can be cited as
one of the best examples of this
worthy work during the past year.
The question is just now ia do we
want a cotton grader bad enough
to go into our pockets and bring
out a few dollars to pay the salary
of this man? The Chamber of
Commerce thinks we do. The next
work will be getting the farmers'
clubs of the county and the Cham
ber of Commerce at Johnston inter
terested, and we can ea^i'y put across
a piece of work that will mean many
dollars in the pockets of the pro
ducer, where they have been giving
to the buyer heretofore.
Another item mentioned ' is that
important matter of club work in!
the schools of the county. Mr.
Carwile reported that he has never
been able to do the club work with
the boys of the county that should
be done. The committee agreed to
get together to raise several prizes
to put up in order to encourage this
work among the boys of the county.
Also, steps were taken to arrange
for a club show at the court house
in case tbe work is a success, and
for the holding: of a short course
for the club members.
Farmers Get Together.
During the past week the farm
ers of tbe Harmony and Trenton
communities held meetings at their
respective schools. County Airent
Carwile reports several things of
interest taken up by these men.
The Harmony people plan to build
a storage house for sweet potatoes.
Quite a bit of discussion was given
to bringing into the community a
bull out of a dam of 500 pounds or
more of butter fat, for the purpose
of building up the grade milk cows.
The county agricultural agent will
do more work along this subject.
Other things taken up were run
ning cotton breeding: tests for indi
vidual and community good, corn
testing plots, co-operation to push
the cotton association work through
out the county and the securing of
a county cotton grader.
At the Trenton meeting the farm
ers decided to form a permanent ag
ricultural club to meet several t^mes
during the year. This club will
endeavor to do everything for the
agricultural good of the commu
nity, laying particular stress on the
continued success of the asparagus
industry, on pushing tbe swine in
dustry so as to make Trenton a
hog sectiou of the State, on promo
ting the growing of peanuts and
sweet potatoes as substitutes for
cotton under weevil conditions, and
devoting a great deal of attention
to the breeding of a standard corn
for the community a?d on improv
ing the cotton varieties to suit their
conditions after the boll weevil be
gins to take a portion of the crop.
This club will co-operato with the
county agricultural agent, the Cot
ton Association and all forces in
the county and State that are work
ing for the good of the farming

Resolutions Adopted by Berea
All partings cause more or less
sadness, but there is a peculiar sor
row which attends the severing of the
ties binding a church and.her pastor.
This fills our hearts as we look back
over the six years and five months
during which Brother H. B. White
has so faithfully ministered unto us
as our pastor.
Since he feeling that the time has
come for him to give up this pastor

with the request that it be accepted
the first of April,
Therefore, be it Resolved
First, That we, the members of
Berea Church .accept his resignation
with deep regret.

sermons he has given us, as well as
of the influence exerted over our
lives by his strong Christian charac
Third, That we assure him of our
heartfelt gratitude for the constant
and earnest prayers he has made for
us, and the sympathy and love he has
Fourth, That our love and our
prayers shall attend him when he is
no longer our pastor and that we
ask God's guidance of his steps and
richest blessings upon him in his
