Mrs. Thomas Rainsford Hos
I tess for U. D. C.
The U. D. C's February meeting
was held on St. Valentine's afternoon
at the spacious colonial home of Mrs.
Thomas Rainsford in Buncombe.
Souvenir hearts were pinned on each
guest upon her arrival.
The president, Mrs. Jeff Wright,
presided over the business session,
after which, Mrs. Helen Nicholson
conducted an interesting historical
Mrs. P. P. Blalock, Sr., read an ori
ginal article which dealt with General
Lee's parentage and early environs.
Mrs. Nicholson had secured a clip
ping from an old Advertiser of 1861,
preserved in an old scrap bookr in
which an account of General Stone
wall Jackson's death was graphically
The historical work of the chapter
is proving very interesting this; win
ter, and the Daughters are entering
enthusiastically into the plan to gath
er all the reminiscences possible. At
the^iext meeting, each Dapghter is
L to bring everything possible in, and
also any contribution for the museum
at Richmond. There are already a
number -of interesting relics in view
to be sent, one a Minie ball, which
Mrs. Blalock exhibited, was one that
injured a relative of hers in the fight
ing around Atlanta.
The Daughters are going to pur
chase a copy of "Women of the South'
in the Confederacy" which will be an
invaluable reference book.
After the interesting meeting, a
delightful social hour was enjoyed,
during which a tempting salad
course, carrying out the Valentine
ideas, was served.
The Cultivation of Beans.
v A few suggestions may be given
about the cultivation of early string
beans or snaps. It is very important
to grow them early as possible and
where a number of farmers are plant
ing with the idea of marketing at the
same time to afford shipping in car
lots, it is important that they be
planted as near the same time as pos
sible. In growing a large quantity one
can not afford to take the risk of
having the frost kill them. It is
therefore best to wait as late as it is
thought safe to plant. I think they
may be planted in the Edgefield sec
tion as soon after the first of April
Get the land in thorough order. The
land should be harrowed and put in
fine shape, thoroughly pulverized so
A hat no clods are to be found. Rows
should be laid off SO inches apart,
very shallow, not over two inches
deep. At least 1,000 pounds of high
grade guano should be put in the drill
and ro'.xed with the dirt. The beans
should be planted about 1 1-2 inches
in the drill and covered abcut one
inch. "Plant and cultivate them on a
level. They can be planted with a
corn planter but be sure to get them
thick enough. Most seed catalogs ad
vise planting three inches apart but
that is too thin. It is also a great mis
take to plant them on a ridge. Be
careful that you dp not cover them

J. G.. EDWARDS,
In loving rememberance of my dear
and devoted son, Clarence B. Stone,
who departed this life eleven years
ago, February 5, 1909.
Eleven years ago today, dear Clar
lt pains my heart to say,
The one I 'oved dearly,
From earth was called away.
Mother's heart is breaking, son,
By inches, day by day
When I sit in sadness, thinking
Of how my precious boy was taken
"Tis sweet to know we will meet again
When parting is no more;
And that the one we loved
Has only gone before.
But God above can comfort us,
The heart that mourns thee here;
And ordy consolation is
To try to meet you thei-e.
Days of sadness still come over us;
Tears of sorrow silently flow,
Fond memory keeps our dear one
Though Heaven claimed him eleven
