Successful Potato Growers.
Early in the year Mr. J. H. Nichol
son and Rev. G. W. M. Taylor enter
ed into a copartnership to grow Irish
potatoes this year, Mr. Taylor hav
ing been reared in Virginia where
growing this crop is quite an exten
sive enterprise. They planted about
four acres the latter part of Febru
ary and have been quite successful.
Up to this time they have harvested
about sixty barrels of potatoes from
two acres, realizing about $6.00 per
barrel.' Mr. Nicholson says potatoes
at that price beat cotton at the pres
ent price of the staple.
The Dixie Highway.
Although it cost the county a pile
of money, the Dixie Highway is about

ple not only of this and adjoining
States, but for the far away sections
as well. It is not uncommon to see
cars passing almost every day bearing
the name-plate of Canada or some
extreme northwestern State. This
splendid new thoroughfare should in
spire our people to modernize other
highways in the country-but let's
do it on a less expensive scale.

fective. The meeting is reaching all
ages and all classes. Friday morning
a special service will be held for the
old people of the community. Satur
day afternoon the tent will be given
over to a service for.the colored peo

Two Young Physicians.
Monday night when the commence
ment exercises of the Medical Depart
ment of the University of Georgia
.were held in the opera house in Au
gusta two Edgefield young men, Dr.
Luther Byrd and Dr. Watson Talbert,
the former being the son of Mr. T. E.
Byrd of Cleora and the latter the
son of Mr. T. G. Talbert. Of course,
Dr. Talbert is now from McCormick
county but Edgefield county reared
him and still claims him. These two*
young men have made a good record
at the medical college and are now
full pledged physicians. Dr. Byrd has
accepted a position as intern at the
University hospital in order to gain
some practical experience before lo
cating eslewhere for the practice of
medicine. We have not been inform
ed of Dr. Talbert's plans.

THE WORLD'S BIBLE.
Annie Johnson Flint
Christ has no hands but our hands,
To do his work to-day; .
He has no feet but our feet
To lead men in his way;
He has no tongues but our tongues,
To tell men how he died;
He has no help* but our help,
To bring them to His side.
We are the only Bible
The careless world will read;
We are the sinner's gospel,
, We are the s?offer's creed;
We are the Lord's last message,
Given in deed and word;
What if the type is crooked
What if the print is blurred?
What if our hands are busy
With other work t?an His?
What if our feet are walking
Where sin's allurement is?
What if our tongues are speaking
Of things His lips would spurn?
How can we hope to help Him
And hasten His return?
Father And Son.
Edgar A. Guest.
Be more than his dad,
Be a chum to the lad;
Be a part of his life
Every hour of the day;
Find time to talk with him,
Take time to walk with'him,
Share in his studies
And share his play; '
Take him to places,
To ball games and races,
Teach him the things
That you want him to know;
Don't live apart from him,
Don't keep your heart from him,
Be his best comrade,
He's needing you so!
Never neglect him,
Though young, still respect him,
Hear his opinions
With patience and pride;
Show him his error,
But be not a terror,
Grim visaged and fearful,
When he's at your side.
Know what his thoughts are,
Know what his sports are,
Know all his playmates,
It's easy to learn to
Be such a father
That when troubles gather
You'll be the first one
For council he'll turn to.
You can inspire him
With courage, and fire him
Hot with ambition
For deeds that are good;
He'll not betray you
Nor illy betray you,
If you have taught him
The things that you should.
Father and son
Must in all things be one
Partners in trouble
And comrades in joy.
More than a dad
Was the best pal you had;
Be such a chum
As you knew, to your boy.
