DFATIl OF MHS. JAN? LAWLKS8.
Loving Tributo Paid io tho Deceased
by a Friend.
In the small hours of tho morning
of Jun. 22. 1921, the death angel
visited tho home of W. A. Prichard
and look fruin their midst Mrs. Prich
ard'H mother, Mrs. J. S. Lawless, who
was visiting there.
Mrs. Lawless complained of fool
ing had. hui did liol think she was
really sick, hut for fear that she was
really sic: er than she realized, a '
doctor was called, and all that lov
lng hands could do was done for her.
hut none thought of the end hoing ?
so near. Her wish was (hat she
might go (illicitly when the Lord
called her. and not linger to cause
others trouble, and her wivh was
granted. She never saw death; she
quietly foll asleep. When all around
her thought that she was getting
comfortable for a good rest in the
early morning, she was .stricken with
paralysis, the trouble striking tho
heart and causing death instantly,
without pain.
She was nearing her ~'\? year and
had been enjoying perfect health, so
that her years sat lightly upon her,
and she looked to bo much younger
than she was. She was twice mar
ried. In early girlhood she was mar
ried to W. Harrison Ables, who pre
ceded her to the grave many years
ago. To this union live children were
horn, of whom four are living. The
eldest. William Robert, died ll years
ago. Those living are Mrs. Josie Mc
Donald. Mrs. Lula Prichard and John
Ables, all of the Oawkay section of
our county, and DorseyAbles. of Dan
ville. Va.
Seventeen years ago she was again
married, her second marriage being
to J. S. Lawless, who is left sad and
lonely hy reason her her 'going
home." She also leaves to mourn
her death a brother and sister in
Oeoneo and two sisters in Texas, be
sides li li grandchildren, in whose
memory she will ever live to help
them on to lead better iives.
Karly in life she united with th?
Baptist church, of which she was al
faithful and consistent member until
she joined tin? Christian church, go
ing with lier second husband. She
was stroiu; in her convictions and
linn in her belief, hut always looked
on the cheerful ?ide of life, and she

knew her. lier family and friends

her father and mother, in the pres

Her church in West minster sent

of lovely (lowers and ferns, showing
to the world how she was loved and
esteemed by all who knew her.

I'KK.MAXEXT PASTUHES.
.I'a.stiues that d?serve the name
aro very few in this part of tho
South. Thia is an important reason
Why poor mules and scrub cattle aro
semi in lean and lank conditio i
throughout tho countryside, and no
profit is realized ill tholr keeping.
The lirai requisite for a pasture
is ti fertile soil. FoiU'od-in gullies
and woods do not constitute ll pas
ture. They do make good burial
grounds or animals. Either plant
?I good bottom in suitable mixtures
or else lirst enrich your hillsides by
turning under a good growth of vel
vet beans or cowpeas. and then plant
rye In tho fall and tum it under for
tho soil before you think about the
planting for the pasture. Do not
think you can dodge the economic
laws, for things that will bo perma
nent must he built .slowly. Ilasto will
surely make waste.
After building tho pasture, graze
lt lightly at first and fence it into
two or more pail.;, so that part of lt
can be rested at times and bald spots
restored and weeds kept mown down.
Using fertilizer for pastures is a
questionable practice, but a little
acid phospbato used at times will
holp considerably. Legumes should
always be planted on medium or
poor soil and turned under for soil
improvement before planting to pas
ture grasses. For grass seed a deep
80od-bed is not needed, for the roots
of the grasses are usually shallow,
and there will be littlo or no germi
ne'Jon In a loose, deep seed-bed. A
lino top. thoroughly harrowed, is
needed, and a roller should be used
to compact the soil around the small
seed after sowing.
What little shade that ls left in
the pasture should be left on the
poorer hillsides and not in the rt? her
bottoms.
"Sod-bound" pastures should bo
plowed in the spring, taking care not
lo completely invert the furrow
slices, the plowing serving to open
up Ibo soil and restore vigor. Har
row and roll afterwards, rolling in
some Lespedesa clover seed if this
is dono In March.
Dost Pasture Plants Here.
According to thoso experienced in
building pastures, Bermuda grass
and Lespedesa or Japan clover are
the two most reliable.
Bermuda started from roots is
nt or*- reliable than thai started from
HMd. ''urn ..ip th? Bermuda sod iii
tice ; v t oi throe Inches thick, lind i
blocks, spring is perhaps the best
time to do this, but it can lie done
nearly any time that plowing can be
done. Place these blocks or (dus
ters of roots IS inches apart in rows
lihou I two feut apart, or they can
be planted closer if enough roots are
available. Sometimes roots are run
through a feed cutter and plowed
under. Or, another good method
which has been tried by a farmer
near Piedmont, with good results, ls
to run out the water furrow where
corn is to be planted and put the
roots in. and then run tho corn
planter and fertilizer distributer over
this, covering while the corn is
planted. Cultivation should then be
carried on with a spring-tooth culti
vator or harrow, not using a swoop,
as the latter will cat the roots and
kill many of them. Then you havo
tho advantage of a corn crop, while
you have started tho Bermuda at
tho same time. Then the following
spring sow broadcast about ten
pounds of Lespedesa seed per aero
and scratch it In. Mix in three
pounds of white clover If sown very
early; otherwise sow the white clo
ver in Ibo fall, as white clover will
start betler then, doing mos! of Its
growing in the cool weather, being
an early and late pasture plant. Too
much white clover should not be
used, however, as it has a tendency to
"salivate" horses and mules to some
extent .
Burr clover can be mixed into the
pasture on the rich soil, sowing it
in August in rows, using two or more
bushels to the acre, as it is hard to
germinate. Manure in the rows wdll
be of great value for this plant. Do
not waste time with burr clover on
tho poorer soils, however.
In the fall, mix in some red-top or
Herd's gralsK, sowing four lo ten
pounds to the acre on the bottom
lands, a.s this grass requires much
moisture and good soil.
On rich, partly shaded spots orch
ard grass will do well for early and
late grazing, using six lo twenty
pounds per acre, depending on the
amount of other seeds used.
Two lons of limestone applied
ev?'ry four or five years will bo of
great benefit. Kentucky blue grass
can be pul In with the orchard grass
on good soil of shaded hillsides,
where the soil ls not sour.

Even though I was under treatment

"I took seven or eight bottles of

Shreveport, La., Feb. 10.-When
Sheriff Grant, of Ouichita Parish, got
busy last Friday and overlooked the
fact that the hanging of Lonnie Ea
ton, a negro, was on his day's pro
gram, ho was not the only absent
minded person In the parish, for
Lonnie himself "clear forgot" tho
date, according to the story he told
In the Caddo Parish Jail here last
night.
"I may lie dead, but 1 don't feel
it," said Lonnie, "but I sho am glad
dat do sheriff fergit nil about mo.
I knew I was to hang some time, but
I clear fergit de dato."
Lonnie received the news lhat tho
sheriff had forgotten him in a casual
manner. He hopes now to receive a
lifo sentence.
Sheriff Grant issued a statement
in Monroe declaring that ho over
looked the matter because the negro
has been In jail at Shreveport three
years, and he was not reminded of
Ibo date for the execution.
