this proposition see the following
committee at once: J. H. Nicholson

Edgefield Produce Exchange
Distributes Car of Seed
The Edgefield Produce/ Exchange
distributed a car of seed potatoes
Saturday. This is the first transaction
the Exchange'has made since its or
ganization. The spuds arrived in good
shape and delivered to the planters
the day of arrival. The planters saved
on this car about $260.00, which is
more than the paid up capital of the
organization. It is regretted that
some placed their orders too late to
get them in this car. Seed potatoes
can be secured in Augusta, but pf
course, at a higher price than these
were bought by the Exchange. In fact
when the car was ordered we were,
not sure of all of them being taken
and about sixty sacks were assigned
to the Trenton planters.
Resolutions of the Woman's Mis

On December 15th, 1921 the earth
ly life of Mrs. Ida DeVore Sheppard
came to a close. In early girlhood
Mrs. Sheppard accepted Christ as her
! personal Savior and walked close be
side Him through the years, letting
Him always lead her. Her life was
a busy, useful one, in her home, her
church and her community. She used
her talents for her Master. Mrs.
Sheppard was a very strong charac
[ ter, always standing firm for what she
considered to be right. Her going was
a personal loss to many of us, but we
thank God for a character, a friend
and a life like hers.
Whereas, we shall miss her pres
ence and voice in our midst, yet we
shall cherish her memory.
Therefore, be it Resolved:
1. That we try to emulate her ex
? ample in her loyalty to her Master,
I service to her family, devotion to
: friends and faithfulness to duty, her
i patience and her childlike faith.
I 2. That our church and' society
. have lost one of its most faithful
3. That we commend her daught
l ers to the One who loves them more
i than a mother and extend to them
; our love and sympathy.
, 4. That a copy of these resolu
tions be inscribed in our minute book
and a copy sent to the family.^

Letter From Mr. T. A. High
tower to Higher Officials
of Addison Mills.
The following letter in reply to a
letter written some time ago by an
official of the Addison Mills in Boston
shows that Superintendent T. A.
iHightower is thoroughly conversant
with the practical management of a
cotton mill and also knows how to
deal successfully with various prob
lems as they arise:
"I have delayed replying to yours
of November 22nd in which you re
quested that we advise through what
means we have been best able to ben
efit the efficiency of our plant during
the last year, 1921, and our views as
to what phases of operation we
should concentrate on in the future
in order tQ get the best results along
the lines of real efficiency.
"In my mind with 25 years of ex
perience in the cotton industry, I do
not believe.. I have ever felt such dif
ficult problems as we are now facing
in the cotton industry. It is true that
many a man has thrown up his nanda
when a little, more effort, a little more
patience ? would have achieved suc
cess. As the tide goes clear out, so it
comes clear in. Sometimes business
prospects may seem darkest when
really they are on the turn. A little
more persistence, a little more effort
and what seemed hopeless failure may
turn to.glorious success. There is no
failure except in no longer trying.
There is no defeat except from with
in, no leally insurmountable barrier
save our own inherent weakness of
purpose. Let us repeat, success must
be won. It never comes uninvited,
never without effort.
"It is true during 1921 most of us
have met with many entirely new
problems and have solved situations
that we never thought could be solv
ed heretofore and we have set up a
new meaning in the use of ?hese prob
lems. By so doing I feel like a great
many problems have been solved, es
pecially as to economy, labor and the
use of materials put into effect. It is
also true that we have come to a bet
ter understanding as to the value oi
proper human relationship.
"It has been' my experience this
year to learn more fully how to get
more, efficiency from our present lay
out of machinery. I do not know
whether it will be interesting to you
for me to say what has brought about
our great efficiency, however, I will
name some of the things which we
have done that have increased pro
duction and brought about low cost
at our mill in the year 1921.
"First, in the card room we have
installed hank clocks for which to
pay card and drawing tenders by.
This has increased the percentage of
efficiency of our mill wonderfully.
Another great improvement in the
efficiency is that we pay our spinners
by the hank instead of by the side,
also section men and doffers are paid
same way. We also have made a
great improvement in the weaving
department by paying weavers by the
pound instead of by the cut. These
items which I have mentioned above
have had more effect on production
than anything I know of.
There are other items which I
could give you that have improved
the efficiency of our plant, which I
think are of the utmost importance
and that is, the proper upkeep and
adjustment of all machinery. It is
true each and every machine must
be in proper running .order to per
form its proper function.
When the question is asked why
certain commodities have achieved
such marvelous success. The reply
can be made, there are many reasons,
but chief among them all is first and
foremost and all pervasive is the con
tinued blessings of Almighty God.
Second, is the magnificent super
vision of the overseers in each and
every individual department, and
their absolute confidence, the power
ful influence and their constant co
operation. Always allowing the super
intendent a free hand in the carying
out of his policies and never for one
moment hampering him in his activi
ties. This also relates to the president
and treasurer from the superinten
dent. This is a tremendous factor in
the success of any institution.
Third, is the matchless devotion,
the measureless sacrifice, the conse
crated zeal and loyalty of the employ
ees who card the cotton, spin the
yarn, .weave the cloth and even to the
one that sweeps the floors. 1
