"Jhe Tattler" .Well Received.
The first issue of "The Tattler,"
the monthly paper published by the
pupils of the Edgefield High School,
has been very much' complimented.
The following is a (letter received by
Prof. Tatum from Prof. DuPre of
WofFord* Coll?ge in which he says
"The Tattler" is the best school pa
per he has seen :
Mr. W. 0. Tatum,"Jr.,
Edgefield, S. C. N :
Dear Mr.-Tatum: ?
I nave your^letter of March 27th,
and I wish to congratulate you upon
your re-election as Superintendent of
the school at Edgefield. I am sure
the people appreciate the work which
you have done there this, year,-and
I am not at all surprised at their ie->
taining you. .
I note what you say in regard to
work in1 a summer scho?l. t do not
know of any work of J;his kind at
present, but, if anything should open
up, I shall be glad to write you.
' A copy of""The Tattler" ,was sent
to me a few days ago, and I have en
joyed looking over it. The general
makeup' of "The Tattler" is .the best
"That I have seen, and the~"ediborial
page compar?s very' favorably with
college publications.'You are making
a great record at Edgefieldi An Hon
or Roll of twenty-?ight per cent and
a list of failures representing only
six per cent is a splendid record. I
congratulate you on having such a
fine school spirit' among the school
children themselves. "Their . interest
and enthusiasm will aid you material
ly in" making the school what it
should be. I am very much pleased to
r?ad the comment in .regard- to your
athletic team at a time when there
is not the very best spirit or conduct
among athletes, if what we hear is
tru?. The tribute to the fairn?ss of
your team from kn opposing team
ought to be very highly prized both
by yourself and your students.
T wish for you continued success.

Death' of Mrs* Sallie Wood.
Last Firday morning, April 21st,
our community was ^saddened when
the news came that our beloved
friend, Mrs. Sallie Wood was dead.
But while we bow in humble sub
mission to this dispensation of God's
will we feel greatly the loss of this
good woman. v . i
Mrs. Wood had reached the sweet
old age- of 81 years, and Vas the~old
est member of Antioch church, was
indeed an active and faithful mem
ber, always contributing liberally of |
ier means to the support of the
murch until the last year or two
when her health began to fail and
she was not able to come to church
as was her usual custom. At the time
of her death she was living with her \
son, i Mr. Press Wood, but was at
tded by all of her children during
.last illness. Especially faithful
[beautiful was the care and ten
iess manifested by her devoted
nighter, Mrs. Henry* Powell, and to
her and the five surviving, sons,
Messrs. Bill, Tom, Henry,.John and
Press Wood we extend our profound
sympathy and commend them to the
lobing care of our Saviour who doeth
all things well.
Rev. A. T. Allen officiated at the
funeral and the remains were laid to
est in the Antioch cemetery beneath
i mound of flowers placed by the
lands of loving friends. "The Lord
rave and the Lord hath taken away,
?lessed be the name of the Lord."

Work the Little Corm
i Every farmer knows that he best j
time to kill grass' is when it is just j
coming up. But most of us are
mighty busy planting . cotton when
the grass is coming up'in the corn.
The result is*" that most folks just go
ahead and let the corn get grassy un
til cotton is all-planted. Then they'
almos", plow up the corn trying to
get all the grass out. And ysu know
how one thing leads to another. That
fail when they gather 15 or 20 bush
els of corn to. the acre 'they will say
as they have always done: "Oh well,
fcbjs ain't no corn-growin_ country
no how." / ,
There is one big reason" why we do
this. It's because we don't know how
to work young corn. To work young
corn most of us think we have to use
a one-horse plow with scooter, scrape,
and feeder and make a round trip to
the row. And of course, nobody has
time to dp that. Of course, cotton
planting can't wait -on such, a slow'
way of doing things.
There is a way to. make time on
this job and save money and make
more corn. If your corn was planted
on-beds or on a level, vuse the section
harrow or weeder and work 12 acres
a day. If jthe com was planted iii or
dinary wat?er furrows, use the one
horse spring-tooth cultivator or V
shaped,harrow and work/a whole row
at a trip. If planted in lister furrows,
get regular lister harrows and work
two, three, four or five rows at a
time, depending- upon/ local condi
With the comp?ratively inexpen
sive modern implements now avail
able; there is little excuse for letting
the corn crop suffer, even though you
are in a hurry to plant cotton or oth
er crops.-Progressive Farmer.
