North American Fruit Exchange,
with head office in New York and 110
branch offices scattered over the
country. The contract for 1921 will
be made probably with the same
company by the board of directors.
The following gentlemen were elect
ed to( serve as directors for the en
suing year: W. B. Owens and J. L.
' Shuler of Williston; Dr. Asbill and
Frank Carwile of Ridge Spring; B.
R. Tillman and D. R. Day, of Tren
ton; S. B. Hair and C. L. Williams
At the conclusion of the round ta
ble discussion the following officers
were elected : J. Broadus Knight of
Greenville, president; Dr. W. C.
/Smith of Williston, vice-president and
J. W., Jones of Ridge Spring, secre
tary and treasurer.
The writer was deeply impressed
with this splendid body of business'
men who were far above the average
of our citizenship in intelligence.
None of them were given to lengthy
speaking, possessing rather the facul
ty of going to the heart and core of
a subject in a few words. The South
Carolina Asparagus Growers Asso
ciation furnishes a fine object lesson
in the advantage to be gained
through organization and co-opera
tion on the part of the farmers. Six
years ago before the association was
organized, the individual growers
would ship their product to markets
here and there over the North, with
out any knowledge or information as
to marketing conditions, receiving
absolutely without redress ' of any
kind not infrequently unfavorable re
turns. Now under organization their
interests are pooled and they ship
their product to a central point, from
which it is shipped by the selling
agents to the markets where demand
is strongest, which not only assures
a top-notch price but prevents the
congesting of any particular market.
Fqr instance, if Philadelphia is well
supplied with asparagus this week,
no further shipment will be made to
that market until the supply is ex
hausted, all other shipments for the
time being diverted to points where
the demand is strong and the supply
limited. The individual seller would
not be in possession of information
regarding market conditions which
would enable him to make shipments
to the best advantage. Just what as
paragus growers have achieved
through organization and co-opera
tion in marketing is the goal that is
aimed by those who are working in
season and out of season to organize
cotton growers. The great question
of the hour with every producer, es
pecially of cotton, is not making a
larger yield but the receiving of high
er and profitable prices for what is al
ready being made. The witnessing of
the splendid spirit of harmony and
unity of action-intelligent co-opera
tion-on the part of the members of
the asparagus association was indeed
an inspiration. To have been an on
looker at such a meeting was a rare
treat. The association adjourned to
meet in Williston the second Tues
day of next January.
Soon after the adjournment the
members of the association and visit
ors repaired to the Wise hall where a
sumptuous feast was served. Three
long tables were arranged the entire
length of the hall and seats were ar
ranged for all present. Immaculate
linen covered the tables and upon
them was spread a menu the like of
which in quantity, variety and dainty
manner in which it was served one
seldom sees. After the turkey, ham,
dressing chicken salad, potato salad,
rice, macaroni, candied yams, celery,
pickle and olives were served hot
coffee with whipped cream, ambrosia
with several kinds of cake were serv
ed. The Trenton ladies abundantly
sustained their reputation as very
American Legion Post Dinner.
The final details in connection with
the dinner for ex-service men at 7:30
o'clock Friday night, the 21st of the
month, have been arranged in regard
to the time and place and so on.
Admission to the dinner will be

one place at the dihner. Mr. Harold
Norris, the secretary and treasurer
of the Post has the tickets and the
price per ticket is one dollar each.
Tickets can be obtained up until Jan
All ex-service men are eligible to
attend the dinner. It is not necessary
for you to be a member of the Post

At the last meeting of the Post on
January 4th it was unanimously de

On Sunday, November 21, 1920,
a beuatiful wedding was solemnized
in Red Hill church when Miss Maggie
Quarles and Mr. Arthur McDaniel
met at the altar and were united in
the holy bonds of matrimony by their
pastor, Rev. W. R. Barnes. The bride
entered the church with Miss Aminee
Quarles, her maid of honor and the
groom came down the opposite aisle
with his best man, Earl Prince. At
tendants were Miss Martha McDan
iel with Mr. Garrett Quarles, and
Miss Ella Quarles with Mr. Warren
After the ceremony, which was
solemnized at 1:30 p. m., the bridal
party with a number of friends re
paired to the home of Mr. W. L. Mc
Daniel, father of the groom when a
sumptuous wedding dinner was serv
ed and all present spent some hours
of pleasantness. At 7 p. m., between
forty and fifty guests gathered at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W.
Quarles, father and mother of the
bride, where a beautiful and bounti
ful wedding supper was enjoyed.
Mr. and Mrs. McDaniel have the
best wishes of many friends and rel
atives, who' are glad that they will
make their home in the Red Hill
U. D. C. Meeting.,;
The United Daughters of the Con
federacy held a very profitable meet
ing at the home of Mrs. A. A. Wood
ron on Tuesday afternoon. As each
one arrived they were presented with
a card tied with red ribbon on which
was written the U. D. C. slogan,
"Educate our. youth and the future
will take care of itself."
The meeting was called to order
by the President, Mrs. Wright, who
read the letter of the National Presi
dent, Mrs. Roy McKinney, which ad
vocated three measures especially:
the hero education fund of $50,000
for aiding youths who went to war
before their education was finished.
The South Carolina delegation at the
Genei'al Convention raised their quo
ta of this on the floor and it is there
fore finished: the Jefferson Davis
monument, which monument has been
finished at his old home in Kentucky :
a memorial to a faithful slave who,
during John Brown's raid gave his
life rather than betray his master.
This last is in process of erection.
Plans for Lee and Jackson day
which will be celebrated next Wed
nesday at the school auditorium were,

East Relief and the chapter decided
to adopt a child. Mrs. N. G. Evans
explained the Italian milk fund and a

$1.25. Mrs. W. L. Dunovant made an
appeal.to the chapter to call on the
county delegation to raise the age of

The historical program consisted
of a paper on General Longstreet,
who was born in Edgefield, read by
Mrs. Dunovant, a sketch of Washing

Miss Gladys Rives.

Plum pudding and cinnamon
sauce with coffee was serged by Mrs.
Feltham, Mrs. W. S. G. Heath and

Don't Forget the Farmers'
If we use in South Carolina 1,100
000 tons of fertilizer and produce
1,250,000 bales of cotton, which can
not be sold for cost of production, is
it sound financing for banks to 're
fuse credits for production pf more
cotton in 1921? If we .bought $111,
000,000 worth of food and food
stuffs in South Carolina last year and
sent that amount of money out of
the State to pay for that which we
should produce at home, is it sensi
ble to do the same thing over in

who will adopt and live up to a plan.
If you ask your neighbor to reduce
cotton acreage and pledge -himself
to plant less cotton while you, Mr.
Farmer, remain out-side of the or

have your privilege, and you kill the

God Give Us Men.
"God give us men to rule,
And riot designing masters,
Who use us for a stepping stool
And then make relentless taskers.
Give us men who will venture forth.
Men who are not afraid
To praise the thrifty, scorn the sloth
And call a spade a spade.
Give us men with spirit eyes
That see, through the dingy cover
Of the human life's day book
And there some bright gem to spy.
Give us men who can come back
From the path of wickedness they
v have trod,
Who once on the right road will
stick to the track
That leads to Thee, O God !
Give us men to preach Thy word.
Solid, rock-ribbed and daring;
That will speak the truth Thoa
would have heard
Of Thy wrath that will not be spar
God give us men by the score,
Brave fellows that fear only Thee;
Who'd give their very life and more
To right the wrong they see."
