careful onlookers will find a gene:
assembly somewhat different fri

ens, Rawlinson of Richland, Evan

and Beamgard of York.
Representative Evans of Spartan
hurg, though still under 60, begai
Jhis legislative .career farthest bael
of all the members of the house. Hi
served four years in the house fron
Aiken county from 1888 to 1892 anc
two years in the senate from 1895
to 1984, resigning in 1894 upon re
-ceiving the nomination for governoi
in the Democratic primary that sum
mer. He served as governor from De
cember ,1894 to January, 1897, his
term being one month longer than
.any governor since the adoption of
the constitution of 1868, due to the
provision of the constitution of 1895
.changing the meeting time of the
general assembly from the last Tues
day in November to the second Tues
day in January. Mr. Evans also en
joys the distinction of being, so far
as I am to ascertain, the first ex
governor to sit in the house of repre
tives since Charles Pinckhey vacated
his seat in the house in 1806 to be
come governor for the fourth time.
Representative George Bell Tim
merman of Lexington served as a
circuit solicitor for 16 years from
1904 to 1920. Four years he was so
licitor of the fifth circuit and 12
years of the 11th circuit.
Four of the newly elected mem
bers of the house have previously
served in the senate. These are Mr.
Evans, as already recited and Messrs.
E. S. Blease of Newberry, who was
senator from Saluda county, from
1904 to 1906; Toole of Aiken, who
represented his county in the senate
from 1906 to 1908, and Beamgard o*
York, who was senator from that
county from 11912 to 1920.
Representative Harper of Charles
ton served in the house from Dar
lington county from 1912 to 1915,
and Representative Harrison of
Greenwood served in the house from
Spartanburg county from 1916 to
1918. A considerable part of the time
of Mr. Harrisons' term was also giv
en to the service of the United States
as a lieutenant in the national army.
A former clerk of. the house has
also just been elected a member
thereof, Mr. Hamer of Marlboro,
who was clerk from 1898 to 1910.
Representative W. L. Gray of Lau
rens enjoys the distinction of being
the oldest man in the house, and
while considerably below the allotted
three score and ten is more than sev
en years older than former Governor
Evans, who comes next in years.
The average for the entire house is
probably below 40.
Care of Seed Corn.
Clemson College, Nov. 14.-No
doubt many farmers have gone over
their fields this fall and carefully se- j
lected good seed corn for next year's
planting. They should now be inter
ested to know how the corn can best
be cared for until planting time next
spring. P. H. Senn, Extension Plant
Br?eding Specialist, makes the fol
lowing suggestions on the subject:
Seed corn, before it is stored
away, should be thoroughly dry. If
it is stored damp it is likely to mold
or freeze. It should never be placed
in or about a damp place, such as
near a well or old cellar.
A good way to keep seed corn is
to place it in good tight boxes or
barrels. Flour and sugar barrels
make good containers. The barrels
should be placed where the air is dry
and circulates freely. Such a place
is usually found in the barn loft.
Corn weevils, rats and mice are
the worst enemies of seed corn. Dam
age from these pests can be prevent
ed by properly storing and fumigat
ing with a gas called carbon-bisul
phide, which can be purchased at
drug stores in a liquid form. A pint
can costs about forty cents and is
enough to fumigate about four bar
rels of corn.
After the barrels are in position
and the ears of corn have been plac
ed carefully in them, pour about one
fourth of a pint of the liquid carbon
bisulphid over the corn in each bar
rel. The liquid forms a gas when it
comes in contact with the air, and it
is necessary that the barrel be tight
so that the gas will not leak out
through the cracks. Spread a corn
sack over the top of the barrel and
on this place a good board or tin cov
er. Weight down the cover with a
heavy rock or brick so that the rats
and mice will be kept out. Pick a
clean warm day on which to do the
The gas can be used by any farmer
but there is one thing he must be
careful about. There must be no fire
near, not even a lighted pipe, cigar
ette, or lantern, for the gas will ex
plode on coming in contact with fire.
Leave the corn in the barrels until
next spring, looking after it occa
sionally to see that it is not being

1. OUR ANNIVERSARY-Today closes the first year of our pastorate
with this church. It has been a full and happy year, Not everything has been
accomplished that we would have hoped, but as we look back over it we
have abundant cause for gratitude to God, who has greatly blessed us. Ev
ery phase of our work has gone forward and even the finances of the church
have held up remarkably well, in the face of the unprecedented financial de
pression with which this section has been visited. The progress achieved has
been made possible under God through the cooperation and loyalty of the
membership of the church. The pastor wishes to record his appreciation of
the splendid spirit of faithfulness of the people to every interest in the
church and for the unceasing tokens of kindness and regard to himself and
family. This has been the busiest year of all our ministry. We have tried to
give ourselves completely to the Lord and the work. A record has been kept
which might be of interest:
1. Number of sermons preached_ 77
2. Number of addresses delivered __ - _. - - 30
3. Number of Prayer Meeting talks-' 35
4. Number of Boys' Prayer Meeting talks - 4
5. Number of B. Y. P. U. talks- 7
6. Number of Baraca talks-'- 40
7. Number of funerals conducted- 10
8. Number of marriages- 12
- 9. Number of pastoral calls and visits-1,326
10. Number of letters written_1,000
2. BARACA CLASS-This class has had a phenomenal growth. A new at
tendance record was made last Sunday when we had 136 present. That
was the number present two weeks ago today. The class has averaged 125
for the last month which also far outstrips any previous month's attendance
in the history of the class. For some Sundays we have not been able to seat
all who came, but some new seats have been secured to take care of the
crowd. The basement room is inadequate in size, but we are managing to
make out with it. Numbers are not all there is to this class either, by any
means. The music provided by our splendid orchestra and the singing is in
spiring. The class is doing a good work among the men of our town. It sup
ports two orphans at Connie Maxwell Orphanage and does other benevolent
work in this community.
3. PRAYER MEETING-The prayer meeting might be said to be the spir
itual pulse of the church. If this be true the spiritual pulse of' this church,
unlike many, is not feeble but strong. With an average attendance for the
past year of up around 100 and an attendance that has a good many times
gone beyond that mark. Our prayer meeting is a testimony to the spiritual
vigor of our church. The pastor believes this service has an attendance
equal to or more than one fourth of our resident membership. We have been
blessed by these prayer meeting services and we feel that many others have.
If you've not tried it come and see. Come in prayer. Pray for the preacher.
Pray that he may be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for yourself. Pray for
other worshippers. Pray for the strangers. Pray that they may feel at home
in the house of God. Pray ?or the absent ones. Some are absent because of
indifference or lack of interest, but whatevr the reason they should be re
membered in our petitions.
4. SUNDAY SCHOOL-Our Sunday school has shown an increase lately.
We did not miss the 400 mark very far last Sunday, If everyone who does
come will come, and everyone who does come bring one who does not we will
go beyond that mark. Numbers are not all there is nor the main thing in
Sunday school or church, but the Sunday school cannot reach and help peo
ple unless they are there. Let us put the child where Jesus put him-in the
midst. Two-thirds of all American children receive no significant religious
instruction. It is as important as geography and arithmetic. It can be taught
and should have its share in any program of education. Have all the children
in Sunday school and be there with them.
