If an employer and an employe

If you do not wish to see another
cut made in your resources next fall,
. you had better make a cut in your
cotton acreage. There is no profit in
eight cents colton for the grower.
First make at home everything need

cotton, making it a secondary crop.

Every young white man who don

People who have an intimate
knowledge of Germany's inner life
say the Huns are even now preparing
for another war. Well, we are not
surprised. While not openly or avow

one can say the Germans were van

were not. Surely the next generation
will not have it all to do over again!

Time Has Come to Act.
Not line upon line but page upon
page has been written urging' far
mers to reduce the cotton acreage.
Now the time has come for action.
On account of the ravages of the boll
.weevil, which has reached practically
every nook and corner of the cotton
belt, early planting of cotton is im
perative. For that reason it is prob
able that all cotton will be planted
-in a few weeks. Preparing the seed
bed is now going rapidly forward.
If they have not already done so, in
a few days farmers must make a de
cision. Will it be in favor of reduced
acreage, or will an effort be made to
"'get ahead of the other fellow" by,
planting the usual acreage? The wise
farmer will reduce greatly-cut in

from the station to the cemetery
where Rev. G. W. M. Taylor, pastor

hear the sad news of his death.
Deserve Carnegie Medals.
Two strong, manly boys of the
Long Branch school deserve Car
negie medals for the heroic efforts
'hey put forth to save one of their
teachers, Miss Lizzie Harvey, from
death by drowning Saturday. Our
Long Branch correspondent tells this
week how Brunson Derrick and Willie
Duffie rescued Miss Harvey from the
waters of Beech Creek. After getting
the young lady to the shore, Brun
son Derrick swam to the middle of
the pond and dived for her glasses,
which she lost in the water, bringing
them up from the bottom without
damage of any kind. All honor to
these strong, brave, manly lads.
Death of Mr. B. P. Walker.
Edgefield friends of Mrs. N. G.
Evans are grieved to learn of the
recent death of her uncle, Mr. Benja
min Pressley Walker, at his home in
Macon. He was a Confederate vet
eran, having served with the Rut
ledge Mounted Riflemen. Mr. Walker
is survived by his widow, one daught
er, Miss Cora Campton Walker, of
Macon, and one son, Mr. Benjamin P.
Walker, Jr. of Atlanta.
This is the last member of a fam
ily of eleven brothers and sisters, a
prominent family originally from old
historical Hamburgh, S. C., in its
early days of affluence. To Mrs.
Evans and the members of her fam
ily, Edgefield extends sympathy.
Clemson College, March 21.-To
meet the increased demand for infor

orchard, thc Extension Service has

chard Spraying." which is now ready

tained from county agents or from
the Extension Service, Clemson Col
lege," S. C. I
The publication contains informa
tion concerning the dormant or win
ter" spray for fruit trees, the first
summer or worm spray, the second
summer spray, the third summer
spray, spray for grapes, formulas for
home-mode lime-sulphur, arsenate of
lead, Bordeaux mixture, information

Marketing of Crops.
Clemson, College, March 21.-A
farming program for 1921 that does
not consider the marketing of crops
would be incomplete. Economic pro
duction and efficient morketing are
supplementary. The year 1920 proved
that the production of large crops
without giving thought to adequate
and economic distribution in business
is folly. Farmers are urged to study
seriously the plan followed with suc
cess elsewhere, notably in California
and Denmank, in the co-operative
marketing of farm products. The
principles underlying the most suc
cessful co-operative marketing work
are as follows:
?. Organization by commodity and
not by locality. <>
2. Membership composed only of
growers and landlords receiving part
of crop as rent.
3. Organization on the non-stock,
4. Pooling of crops and payment
to growers on the basis that each
grower receive the same price per
unit for the same quality of product.
5. The binding crop contract,
which insures fulfillment of agree
ments, makes possible the financing
of the marketing operation, and as
sures a volume of business sufficient
to guarantee economic marketing.
6. The employment of trained and
experienced experts to handle the
functions of marketing under the su
pervision of directors selected by the
growers from their own number.
Farmers must realize that it is
only on some basis as that outlined
in the above principles that they can
ever expect to make their influence
felt in the marketing of their own
products. Coupled with soil building
and a "live at home" program, mar
keting will go far toward stabilizing
farm life and farm incomes.
Why Co ds 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
af 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.

Fertilizers High Yet.
Guano of all grades and kinds has
been dropping, dropping and drop
ping in price, but has not yet reached
a sufficiently low level for farmers to
use it extensively. When cotton was
eight cents in the years gone by
"acid" sold for around $9 and $10
and Kainit for but little more, while
now, even at the seemingly low level,
the price is about double.

D. A. R. Meets With Mrs. F.
M. Warren, Jr.
The March meeting of the Daught
ers of the American Revolution was
held on Tuesday afternoon with Mrs:
F. M. Warren, Jr. An unusually large
attendance made the occasion very
charming. The April shower which
preceded the hour seemed to add zest
to the pleasant; drive.
Mrs. Warren and Miss Lizzie War
ren met the guests at the door and
the parlor was most tastefully deco
rated in dogwood and pink honey
suckle, the first we had seen this sea

country roads say the flowers are un
usually abundant and early.
Mrs. Warren presided' over th?

of having a cake sale for ?he benefit

on, and will be held on Saturday of
this week at Mitchell & Contelou's

gress, well presented by Mrs. J. W.
Peak; the reading of Henry Timrod's
Carolina by Ned Nicholson, and the
singing of Reed Miller's rendition of
this poem by Miss Miriam Norris, with
accompaniment by -Mrs. Tillman.
This reading and song was a beauti
ful tribute to Timrod and the ladies
present commended Ned for his
courage and gift of oratory and ex
pressed the hope that he would be
come another good and great son of
Miss Norris made the poem more
beautiful in her singing than we had
ever heard it before.
Mrs. J. H. Cantelou gave a reading
from C. Irvine Walker's "Romance of
the Lower Carolinas."
At the close of the program, iced
tea and a salad course most tempting
ly prepared was served by the host
ess assisted by Miss Warren.
The next meeting will be held with
Mrs. Nicholson in April.
