Spray Fruit For Worms.
Clemson College, March 12.-The
first summer or "worm" spray to
control worms in fruit, is of vital im- j
portance in obtaining a good crop of
quality fruit, suggests the horticul
tural division in Extension Circular
25 "Orchard Spraying," a new pub
lication now ready for distribution.
Most of the fruit that is punctured
while small falls from the effects of
the injury or on acocunt of the pre
sence of the developing worms.
The loss caused by worminess in
fruit, while very important, is per
haps less than that resulting from the
"stings" and punctures, which de
form, scar and cause the fruit to fall
or ripen prematurely.
Kind and Preparation: Arsenate
of lead, or a poison spray made of a
mixture of arsenate of lead, quick
lime and water mixed as follows :
Formula No. 1.
Arsenate of lead (powder, see note)
Quick lime (lump) _- __ __ 2 lbs.
Formula No. 2
Arsenate of lead (powder)_1 oz. or
about 1 tablespoonful
Quick lime (lump)-3 oz. or
2 lumps the size of an egg.
Water_ 3 gals.
Make a thin paste of the arsenate
of lead, and slake the , lime to a
whitewash (warm water giving best
results in slaking). When coll pour
together and dilute to fifty gallons
This mixture should be well stirred
during the process of spraying.
Note. In the use of the wet paste
form of arsenate of lead, two pounds
should be used instead of one of the

Mrs. Dietrick in Edgefield.
On Thursday morning at the hom?
of Mrs. W. B. Cogburn, Mrs. Emma
G. Dietrick spoke to a number of
members of the W. C. T. U., telling
them in her enthusiastic and helpful
way many things concerning the or
ganization and the recent Regional
Conference of the W. C. T. U, of the
South Eastern States which recently
met in Chattanooga.
Mrs. Dietrick was one of the pion
eer temperance workers in South
Carolina, and no one knows just how
much the mothers and fathers of our
state owe to her faithful labors of
love in our behalf in the past, to rid
our state of the dispensary. Her
stories of these early experiences are
well worth recording.
Mrs .Dietrick was entertained in
the home of Mrs. W. B. Cogburn and
Mrs. J. L. Mims and Mrs. J. W. Peak
were greatly honored to be guests at
dinner with Mrs. Dietrick.

Death of Mr. R. P. Faulkner.
McKendree section has been called
upon to give up one of its most prom
inent and useful members on Feb
ruary 28, after a day's toil in the
cemetery of his parents and other
relatives three miles from his home.
He did not return at the usual hour,
and the family became alarmed. They
with others sought to find him, find
ing his body two miles from his
home about nine o'clock.
He was in his usual health as they
thought, when he left home. And
the death angel came and claimed him
all alone. Mr. Faulkner was 69 years,
9 months and 12 days old. He will be
very much missed in his community,
and especially by his family.
He was a devoted husband and
father. He leaves a wife and three
children, Mrs. Jas. Rhodes, Mrs. J.
F. Glauzier and Miss Anna Faulk
ner and six grandchildren to mourn
his loss. He also leaves four broth
ers, Messrs. Thomas Faulkner of Mc
Cormick, Tombs Faulkner of Green
wood, Elijah and R. L. Faulkner of
of Ninety Six. His body was laid to
rest in McKendree cemetery. He had
been a consistent member of McKen
dree church for many years.

Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
When in heaven with joy to greet
Where no farewell tear is shed.."

Why Colds Are Dangerous.
It is the serious diseases that colds
lead to that makes them dangerous.
They prepare the system for the re
ception and development of the germs
of influenza, pneumonia, tuberculosis,
dyphtheria, scarlet fever, whooping
cough- and measles. You are much
more likely to contract these diseases
when you have a cold. For that rea
son you should get rid of every cold
as quickly as possible. Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy will help you. It is
widely known as a cure for bad colds.
