A Kine Clover Field.
A Held of crimson clover, valuable
as well as beautiful, and worth going
miles to sec, can he seen on the place
of W. M. Drown, near J. C. Edwards,
one-half mlle north of thc it. A.
Thompson place, near Walhalla.
This clover made a luxuriant
growth thc lirst year and is covered
with crimson blooms, which will soon
' bo valuable seed. Inoculated seed
i were scattered in the cotton middles
t last September. The soil was of ox
? tra good quality.
J. L. Kell, of the Now Hope sec
lion, has a fine field, and so has Dr.
.I ii. stonoeypher, of Westminster.
There have boon several failures,
however, due to soil, inoculation and
weather, hut these men prove lt cnn

Not every soil in the county will
make a good growth of crimson clo
ver tho first year, hilt velvet heans
can bo grown anywhere, and a more
valuable fertilizer and feed cannot
he bought than velvet heans.
S. II. Snead, of Walhalla Houtc 1?,
says thal live years ago his son grew
velvet heans in an acre of corn, and
that the beneficial elTocI on Ibo soil
can still he seen in all the crops fol
lowing tho turning under of Hie vine

.1. r. White, of Ibo South I'nion
section, states thal on a small place
where oats followed turning under
velvet beans he noticed tho oats grow
nearly twice as high as where Hiero
were no beans.
Ile fed his cow velvet beans in the
pods, crushed, and one-half cotton
seed, and in a month the milk in
creased from one and a half to two
and a half pounds. Mr. White has
planted velvet beans for four years,
and each year plants more and more.
Tho "Fodder Disease."
Cats and vetch, followed by sudan
grass and soy beans and cow peas,
will overcome the hereditary disease
of "fodder pulling."
lt is a foolish waste of time just
as surely as driving an ox to town is
now considered slow and wasteful
and behind the times.
Many farmers admit the evil of
"fodder-pulling " bot few will over

H. F. Muuldln, l'roshlent of Hank of
Anderson, Called to His Reward.
(Anderson Mall, May 3d.)
Benjamin Franklin Mauldia. tor
nearly half a century a'leading bank
er of Anderson, and well known In
banking circles over the entire Stale,
died suddenly at his home, 603 N.
Main street, at an early hour this
morning, lie had served the Bank
of Anderson for tlfteen years as Its
president.
Mr. Ma aldin had not been ill the
best of health for tho past year or so,
and although he was able occasion
ally to go to his ellice at the Hank
of Anderson, his general condition
kept him from taking an active p rt
in the affairs of the bank since tho
first of the year.
Mr. Muuldln is survived by his
widow, who. before her marriage to
him in 1872, was Miss Mary Recd,
of this city, and three daughters.
Mesdames J. M. Padgett, R. C. Mal
lison and Prue Clinkscales, all of
whom live in Anderson.
Hanker from Vouug Manhood.
Mr. Muuldln, who was 71 years of
age. was a figure in the financial
sphere who will long be remembered
in Anderson county. Turning to bank
ing when a young man, ho gave i li ; ; t [
business 'ong study and practice ?uni

Anderson, he did not confine his ef
forts t<> titi; city alone, but lent his
influence lo the organization of sev
eral banks in this and nearby cou li
tios. Ile organized and was preshh nt
of the following banks: The Bank of |
Townvillc. the Hank of Trenton, thc
Hank of Mount fannel, the Lowndes-]
ville Hank. I lu* Hank of Due West.,
the Bank of McCormick and the Rank
Of Hodges. Only a short time ago
Mr. Mauldin resigned as president of
the Farmers' and Merchants' Rank
of Iva because of his ill health.
The heart of.Mr Mauldin was in .
the banking business. Life offered
to him no greater opportunities than
opening banking houses in new fields
and in communities where banks
were unknown, developing them into
sound business institutions that en
joyed the trust and confidence of the
people, and then leave them /in the
hands of citizens of these towns and
communities as a business asset.
Those who came in contact with
him in a business way were always
impressed with his fairness and with
the impartial .vay ni which en!

consolation to an unfortunate one
who had lost his fortune.
A letter written some years ago
contains a tribute to Mr. Mauldin
from Seiden Kennedy, of Due Weil.
In part the letter say-: "I have
never known a more unselfish suc
cessful business man. Some men do
not care who may fail. >o they suc
ceed, but Mr. Mauldin is deeply in
terested In all, and can rejoice with
men as well as weep with them."
Mr. Mauldin was born in Ander
son county Oil March 21, ISM?. His
father, whose natue was also Benja
min Franklin Mauldin. was a mer
chant and a Baptist preacher, and
was a member of the Secession Con
vention in 1861. A business man,
full of public spirit ami ol' the most
strict integrity of character, he was
well known throughout the county
and had a reputation in the State at
large. His mother, Mrs. Adaline Tyr
rel (Hamilton) Mauldin. had a very
marked influence upon the character
of her son in early boyhood, and her
.nemory has always retained an alto
gel her exceptional place in his life.
Rho was descended from Archibald
Hamilton, who emigrated from Scot
land and married Frances Calhoun.
His earliest known ancestor in Amer
ica, on his father's side, was Jon h
Mauldin. who made swords for tho
Revolutionary soldiers.
Mr. Mauldin was a member of the
Baptist church, and for many years
he held the office of deacon in th."'
church.

"Rut this ls mine already !"
"Of course," retorted tile other.
"It's your cow lane and you're tho

acres of first-class farm land at $100 j
an acre-less for some of lt, perhaps. |
I bought a few acres from myself last 1
spring, after I had learned how sim
ple the transaction was."
The farm owner laid a firm hand
on his friend's broad shoulder.
