R. G. Lee Preaches on Chris
"The danger of 'the Christian is
arrested development," said the Rev.
Robert G. Lee in his sermon at the
Shandon Baptist church last even
ing. Dr. Lee is conducting a series of
services, one being held each evening.
"We content ourselves," he said,
"with a corner when God shows us a
Among other thought exciting
statements were the following :
"One great weakness of the church
is that we have so much to enjoy and
so little to endure."
"The great mystery to me is not
God's mercy to terrible sinners but
God's patience with ill natured
"If God forgave us our trespasses
as we forgive others many of us
would be in hell."
"There are too many brakemen
and too few firemen in the church."
"If our ideals were anywhere up
to the ideals of Jesus we would see
the man in the profligate, the son in
the prodigal, the woman in the har
lot, the image of God in every wreck
and waif of earth."-The State.
Four New Specialists to Help
Clemson College, April 28.-Four
experienced specialists in the grad
ing, packing and standardizing of
truck crops are to be appointed in
the near future by the Extension
Service to help the farmers in the
new trucking sections in getting their
truck .crops ready to put on the mar
ket in acceptable condition.
The Extension Service realizes
that many farmers in certain parts
of the state have gone into trucking
this year as their first experience,
that those farmers are not familiar
with the requirements and methods of
grading, packing and shipping truck
crops; and that there is consequently
much danger of great loss to such
farmers unless guidance and assist
ance are given at the right time. Di
rector Long feels therefore that the
greatest service to be rendered these
new truck growers lies in helping
them to prepare in an acceptable
manner for market the produc
which they are now growing.
Two of the specialists, who will be
engaged for the truck crop season,
will be located at Florence and the
other two at Aiken, conveniently
near to the needs of sections where
many farmers are growing new crops.
The men will be secured from the
older trucking sections of South Car
olina if possible. If not, a repres^nti.
Itive of the Extension Service will go
to Florida to secure men who have
had a large practical experience in
work of this kind. It is hoped to have
them on duty early in May.
The Flyless City.
The flyless city is the dream of
health officials. McPherson, Kansas,
with a population well under ten
thousand, plans to realize the dream
next summer by the enforcement of
an ordinance enacted by the City
Commission which offers an example
to every community which makes the
well-being and comfort of its citizens
one of its foremost considerations.
The commission, after studying the
problem from all angles, has ruled
that no resident of McPherson shall
be allowed to keep more than one
horse, one cow or one hog within the
corporate limits. All barns, stables,
chicken houses and even dog houses,
must be cleaned three times a week,
and refuse removed outside the city,
where means will be available for its
destruction. Every merchant must
place wire flytraps at the front and
rear entrances of his place of busi
ness and all citizens must take simi
lar precautions in their homes under
penalty of incurring a fine.-Provi

Knowledge is Power.
In a great factory one of the huge
power machines suddenly balked. In
spite of the exhortation, language, oil
.and general tinkering, it refused to
even budge. Production slowed down
and the management tore its hair.
At last an expert was called in. He
carefully examined the machine for
a few minutes, then called fer a ham
mer. Briskly tapping here and there
for about ten minutes, he announced
that thf machine was ready to move.
And it did.
Two days later the management re
ceived a bill for $250-the expert's
The accountant was a righteous
man who objected to overcharge. He
demanded a detailed statement of
thc- account. He received this:

PLAYED PART IN REVOLUTION
Last of "Signal Trees" Near the Val

With the removal recently of an
ancient chestnut at Strafford, Pa.,
there disappeared one of Chester
county's notable landmarks. It was
the last of a score or more "signal
trees" used during the Revolution as
observation posts by soldiers guard
ing the approaches fb the camp of the
'.ragged continentals" at Valley Forge.
These trees, the tallest in the forests,
were scattered over what ls now the
upper end of the fashionable main
Platforms were built In their tops
and there, day after day, lookouts
watched the roads and the activities
of marauding bands of Redcoats and
Tories over the countryside. Warn
ing of the approach of an enemy j
force was given by the observer fir
ing his musket. The man in the next
signal tree, a mile or more away,
would then fire his musket and in this
way the news would be carried event
ually to Washington's camp.
