The Norris Plan.
Farmer E. J. Norris has hit upon a
good plan for fighting the weevil. He
is planting a row of corn in the mid
dle furrow of weevil infested cotton
and later if the damage by the wee
vils is very considerable he will plow
up the cotton. On the contrary if this
hot weather overcomes the weevils
he will plow up the corn. In' other
words it is a case of the "survival of
the fittest" crop.

Death of Mr. N. L. Brunson.
Monday night about 10:30 o'clock
Mr. N. L. Brunson died at his home
in Edgefield, after a lingering illness
extending over a period of 6 months.
For the past four months he has been
confined to his home and much of the
time to his bed. He was a great suf
ferer but made a strong fight against
the dread disease that seized him
nearly a year ago. Although stead
ily growing weaker as .the months
and weeks passed, he was hopeful
to within the last week that he would
Mr. Brunson was in his 79th year
at the time of his death, having giv
en four years of his life to gallant
service in the Confeedrate army and
having borne well his part in the
stormy days of re-construction. At the
time of his death he was magistrate
at Edgefield, having served the people
in that capacity for about 10 years.
Mr. Brunson was a member of ,the
Baptist church, from which the fu
neral was conducted Tuesday after
noon by Rev. G. W. M. Taylor. Mrs.
Brunson and their only daughter,
Miss Genie Brunson, died about ten
years ago, and his last resting place
is beside their graves in our village
During his long illness Mr. Brun
son was unceasingly ministered to by
his niece, Miss Kellah Fair, and
nephew, Mr. D. D. Brunson. They
gratified every wish and gave them
selves unselfishly, both night and day,
to contributing to his comfort. Rare
ly, if ever, does one see such beauti
ful and unselfish service so nobly ren
dered. Although the long months of
nursing made inroads upon their
strength, neither of them relaxed in
their vigilance, being faithful to the

The June meeting of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy was
held Tuesday afternoon at "Fair
view," the most attractive suburban
home of Miss Sophie Dobson, fifteen
members being present.
The spacious veranda, willow fur
niture, crex rugs, handsome potted
plants and bowls of cut flowers made
a charming scene for the gathering,
which was called to order by the
president, Mrs. Jeff Wright, with all
the members rising to repeat the
Lord's prayer in unison.
The president read several letters
expressing the appreciation of offi
cers and chapters for the pleasant

A card from the State Historian,
Miss Zena Payne, was read begging

excellent libraries in Edgefield where
all needed information could so tas
ily be gathered. . %
The minutes of the last meeting
were read by the secretary, Miss So
phie Dobson, and stood approved.
The treasurer, Mrs. R. A. Marsh,
made her report, supplemented by a
report from Mrs. John G. Edwards,
who acted as treasurer of the special
funds for the conference and Mem
orial day expenses. She presented a
check for $20.00 to the chapter from
the American Legion, who wished to
contribute this generous amount from
their recent successful play, "The
Micobe of Love," toward the expenses
incurred by the Daughters in enter
taining the old veterans, their wives
and widows of veterans and the hon
orary members of the chapter at a
dinner on Memorial day at the Dixie
Highway Hotel. The Daughters ac
cepted the check, giving the Ameri
can Legion a rising vote of thanks.

year bids fair to be remarkable. Mrs.
Preston Wright, Mrs. Thomas Law

Mrs. Wallace Wise, Mrs. Frank Mil
ler, Mrs. Walter Nicholson, Mrs. Rob
ert Waring, Mrs. Allen Samuel and
Mrs. M. B. Tucker are recently elect

Spray for Root and Wilt in
County Agent Carwile says to
spray about every two weeks to con

this treatment will not altogether
prevent the above diseases, the toma

also be ordered by your County Agent
for you in a ready prepared form. If
you care for good tomatoes it cer
