Death of Mr. Dozier A. Lynch.
^ The entired community was deep
?ly saddened by the death of Dozier
"A. Lynch, which occurred here today
about 12 o'clock at the home of his
mother, Mrs. Kate Lynch. While he
has not made his home in Edgefield
during the past ten years, yet he was
^universally beloved and his home com
ing has always brought real joy to
the hearts of his friends.
Mi\ Lynch was bom February 9,
1889, and graduated from Davidson
college with honors in 1910, which in
stitution he entered after completing
the course in the Edgefield graded
school, there being no high schools
in those days. The session following
lis graduation from Davidson ne en
tered, the law department of the Uni
.versity of North Carolina and at the
close of his junior year there he de
cided to take his senior year in law
at the University of South Carolina.
While in his senior year at Carolina
lie accepted a position as private sec
retary to Judge Woods. Mr Lynch
was" from his early boyhood a hard
student, and made a splendid record
at college, being recognized as having
few equals as an orator. In every in
stitution which he attended he was
selected as the most suitable person
to participate in the intercollegiate
oratorical contests, never failing to
bear off the honors.
Early in the spring of 1912 Mr.
Lynch became a victim of tuberculo
sis and spent three years in a private
sariitarram in Asheville, and later
went to Fort Stanton, New Mexico,
where he has resided for the past six
years. All along he has made a stub
horn fight against this dread disase,
never losing courage until a few
hours before the end came today. Just
two weeks ago he came to Edgefield
from Fort Stanton to visit his mother
and since that time there has been
ay steady decline in his condition.
Mr. Lynch was an exceptional
young man-an exception in his laud
?able ambition to fill a large and use
ful place in life, an exception in his
intellectual attainments, an excep
tion in his splendid character.. In
fact, a generation produces but few
young men of the quality and calibre
of Dozier Lynch. His high ideals, ster
ling qualities and rectitude of life
have been an inspiration to the young
men who have come in contact with
him, always inspiring them to higher
.and nobler living.
Mr. Lynch was a devout Christian,
having united with the Presbyterian
church in early boyhood.He was con
scious almost to the end which he
faced bravely, the passing through 1
the valley of the shadow of death
having rto terrors for him.. 1
The funeral will be held at the res
idence of his mother tomorrow after- i
noon at four o'clock and the inter
ment will take place in the family ;
square in the village cemetery. Rev. (
T. P. Burgess of Clinton, who was Mr. <
Lynch's pastor when he resided in i
Edgefield has been requested to of- (
-ficiate at the funeral. I
"Besides his mother, Mrs. Kate <
Lynch, Mr. Lynch is survived by two
brothers, Mr. W. C. Lynch of Edge
field and Mr. W. E. Lynch .of Row- ]
land, N. C.
?Flower Show in Fall.
'.The members of the Civic League .
"have decided to hold a flower show
Tiext fall similar to the floral fairs -
..that wer? held in Edgefield a decade
ago. Instead of confining the flowers
to chrysanthemums, as was done .
then, the exhibit will be thrown open
to all kinds of flowers. If the flower
show next fall is to be made a suc
cess, and surely it will be, prepara
tions must begin now during the
planting season. It will be too late to
decide in the summer or early fall
to enter flowers. They must be grown,
and in order to grow them the plant
ing must be done in March and April.
See how many exhibits you can pro
-vide, covering as great variety as
possible. Of course, everybody will
grow fine chrysanthemums as they
did in the years gone by. Begin now,
if you would win some of the valu
able prizes to be offered'-aext fall, j
Testing Seed Corn.
Clemson College, March 8.-One
)f the best and most reliable ways
of testing seed corn, says Prof. C. P.
Blackwell, Agronomist, in answer to
recent inquiries from farmers, is
with the germination box. Any far
mer can make his own box at very
little expense. It may be made any
size to suit the needs of the individ
ual. The sides should be made of 2x4
timbers while the bottom may be
made of any convenient material. A
box the size suggest?d here will test
two hundred ears at one time. This
is enough seed to plant about sixteen
acres. It usually requires about 12
ears to plant an acre.
1. Make a box 48 inches long,
28 inches wide and 4 to 5 inches
2. Procure a good piece of mus
lin one inch larger each way than the
3. Mark the muslin with heavy
lines into squares two inches.. Leave
a margin of 4 inches the outside row
of squares and the edge of the cloth.
4. Begin at the left of the upper
row of squares (top row first) and
number the squares to the right.
The squares down the left hand line
will then be numbered 1, 21, 41, 51,
5. Place 1 1-2 bushels of saw
dust or old chaff in a sack and soak
well in warm water (at least two
6. Drain and afterward press sur
plus water out of sawdust.
7. Place about 2 inches of saw
dust in the box and press firm and
smooth with a brick.
8. Place marked muslin on this
sawdust and tack to box around
9. Prepare another piece of mus
lin 2 inches shorter each way than
the one marked.
10. Secure another piece of any
coarse, strong cloth twice/ as long
each way as the one mentioned in 9;
11. Number the ears of corn to
be tested from 1 to 200. Use tag in
butt of ear fastened by pin or shingle
nail. Preserve the identity of the
ear until the test is complete.
12. Remove 6 kernels from each
ear as follows, (a) Two from about
2 inches from the butt of ear, (b)
two about the middle of ear, (c) two
from about 2 inches from* tip of ear
13. Place the kernels from ear
No. 1 in square No. 1; from ear No
2 in square No. 2 putting germ side
of kernels up and tips pointing to
ward rows of squares with lower
14. Wet small sheets of muslin
as made in No. 9 and place over ker
nels to hold in place.
15. Place large sheets of cloth
as made in No. 10 over this.
16. Put about 2 inches of wet
sawdust on this, press down until
firm, and fold edges of cloth over to
17. Keep from freezing. If warm,
sprouts should be long enough in 7
to 8 days.
18. Open by rolling the cloth
containing the sawdust, then taking
off the loose cloth carefully, not dis
tributing the kernels.
Reading the Test..
19. Do not read until the sprouts
are at least twd^ inches long.
20. If all the kernels grow well,
the ear is considered "strong."
21. If the sprouts are weak, call
that a "weak ear."
22. If two or more kernels do
lot grow call that a "bad" ear.
23. All but the strong ears are
rejected for seed- purposes. All saw
iust and cloth used should be thor
jughly wet. If warm water is used, it
viii promote early growth. If saw
dust and cloths are used repeatedly
they should be thoroughly scalded to
fie rose! the lillies tell it
With fragrant Easter breath,
From out the tomb's great ( darkness
He rose, and conquered death.
He rose! the birds are telling
In tuneful Easter song,
Sow Jesus brought salvation
When earth had waited long.
He rose! the whole world tells it
In every new born flower,
That Christ has conquered Death,
With, resurrection power.
He bids us live our Easter, /
Not once, but all the way, /
And rise above our crosses,
With Him on Easter day!

Leg Badly Broken.
Master Wayne Derrick, the sixteen
year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John
Derrick, had his left leg broken last
Thursday while playing on the school
?rounds of the Lott School. Both
bones were not only broken but the
large bone protruded from the flesh
and a piece several inches in length
had to be removed. Wayne was car
ried at once to the Baptist hospital
in Columbia where he is receiving the
best ?attention. The attending physi
cian told his father that he felt con
fident that he could practically re
store the injured member but that it
would require about six months' Na
ture will have to repair the injury
sustained through the piece of bone
that had to be removed. Wayne is a
bright and very popular, boy and his
misfortune is deeply deplored. ?No
blame or censure attaches to any of
his playmates, the unfortunate oc
currence being purely accidental.
