Start Pastures Now .
For bottom lands in this section
the following mixture is recommend
ed, based on experiments in North
Georgia:
Lespedeza, 5-10 lbs. per acre; Dal
las grass, 3" lbs. per acre; white clo
ver, 2 lbs. per acre; red-top (Herd's
grass,) or orchard grass, 4 lbs. per
acre. ,
the Lespedeza and Dallas grass
should be sown NOW, sowing the
Dallas grass in very shallow furrows
5 feet apart and broadcasting tho
Lespedeza. Cattle will tramp in the
seed while grazing on a made-over
pasture or else the soil should be
firm below and loose on top and cov
ered* very lightly with a roller or
brush.
The (White (Dutch) clover and red
top should bo sown- over this In tho
fall.
For good uplands, Bermuda cut
tings and 10 lbs of Lespedeza should
be used per acre. On good soil, or
chard grass, red-top and blue grass
may be grown In place of Berduma,
the blue grass In shaded portions.
Those who wish to start better
pastures should get in touch with
the County Agent.

HAPPY ROMANCE CULMINATED
fa Mnrrlago of Misa Rhodes and Mr.
Rutherford at Greenville.
The Greenville Piedmont of last
Friday contained the following in
teresting story concerning the mar
riage of Miss Annabell (Rhodes, of
that city, well known to many in and
around Walhalla, to John J. R?ther-?
ford, of Detroit, Mich.:
"To-morrow morning Miss Anna
bell Rhodes, of Greenville, and John
J. Rutherford, of Detroit, neither of
whom can speak or hear, will be
married.. Dr. W. T. Sloan, of
the First "Presbyterian church,
will be asked to perform the
ceremony, which is. . to take
place In the minister's study at
the hour of nine. Immediately after
the ceremony is over Mr. and Mrs.
Rutherford will leave the city for
Detroit, whore they will make their
home. ??y*J
... "Since ?Miss Rhodes and Mr. Ruth
erford met in Detroit summer before
last, at.a convention of the deaC and
dumb'they have kept up a continual
correspondence, which led to the en
gagement of. the couple. Yesterday
Mr..Rutherford arrived in the.city to
claim tho bride, and to-morrow he
will take her to be with him until
'death do them part.'
"Miss Rhodes is a native of Dar
lington, but has made her homo in
Greenville for several years, having
worked until rocently- at the fllden
borg Cigar Factory. She was edu
cated at tho Cedar Springs Institute
for the Deaf and Blind, In Spartan
burg county, and for some time was
a teacher of sowing In that institu
tion. She has made hor home lately
at the Young Women's Christian As
sociation, where she ls very popular
with the young ladles and officials.
J, A. Rhodes, her brother, who ls al
so deaf and dumb, and whose wife ls
a mute, is her only relative in this
city. Mr. Rhodes is the father of two
normal children, who talk and hoar,
and Is au efficient employee of tho
Greenville News.
"Mr. Rutherford ls employed In
tho Ford factory at Detroit. He re
ceived his education at an Instituto
(or the deaf and dumb at Flint.
Mich.-'
.Mrs. Rutherford, ns Miss Rhodes,
has visited In Walhalla on a number
of occasions, being a sister of Geo.
E. Rhodes, of The Courlor ofllce.who
is also a mute. <Sho made numerous
friends hore, who will Join with Tho

Tho washi?g -ot. dlahe<) takoH so
much Uni? iu-?very hon By thai lt ls
evidently a subject ?alliUK for toso
attention. Nothing ip more desirable
than that this, work, bo done thor
oughly and well. ' Still, lt ls doubt
less possible to ?Ina for ft in Mich a :
way that time nitty bo saved tor'
other matters.
In the first place, systematic work
ls sure to go more rapidly th"ii hap
hazard fashions. The dishes .should
be prepared for washing by ?crap
ing them as clean as possible, and
some housekeepers advocaw; rinsing
off many of them under the hot br
cold faucets before putting them in
the dish-pan. 'Hard water is very un
satisfactory for dish-washing, and
the use of soda or boru . ts a gr ?tat
help when soft water th coi avail
able. Borax ls not so hard on the
hands as soda. 'Dishes whh have
contained milk or eggs are 'HU ter
rinsed well In cool water, to heat
hardens the albumins so tim tiley
are removed with difficulty.
Plenty ot hot soapy water 1?- .eees
sary to do this work o?siljf, and a
second dish-pan of olear, hot va ter
In which to rinse the dishes ls v very
great help. Use very li lt lo s vp on
gilt china, however.
There seems to be n meat 'arlety
of opinion on the subject of v i sh lng
glass. Many housekeeper?} h ex
pressed a preference for wan ; it
In cold water rather than hot. v.-ere
the glass ls not at all greasy i .us ls
very well. Ammonia or j-od.\ n the
water helps to clean tho gl/i ,s and
makes it lustrous. Glass wie icd In
cold water should be ftllo) d to
drain almost dry bel ^re it pol
ished.
One housekeeper has dose Vii ed to
me a wire basket Which $1 '.ia?
made to hold dishes when ii- are
drained, and which ls mada o flt
Into her dish-pan. Fitting the shes
into thia, she is able to Jin nu .'se
them in hot rinsing w: tar; ?uv then
lift them out to dry. ?he nhd; ;he
plan an excellent one.
Another student writes th he
has found sifted coal ashes fi most
useful article to use lr. cleaning the
knives. Another prefers sifted wood
ashe. These must b.p. very euro olly
sifted, so Miat no hard bits be left in,
whidh might scratch-tho articles to
be polished.
The kitchen dishes are usual ly ' lie
most difficult to wash, and with
these a home-made ^scrubber" ls
very useful. "Take a broom apart,
a good ono, by removing th< wire
and letting tho straw loose, she
says. "The upper part of thc ..Taw
is then put into bolling waif ind
left long enough to sot icu it. Thon
the straws ara tied together 1. bun
dles about two inches acrosrf. .sirik*
a strong twine. The twine la nlled
I tight and sinks into tho ?iejiCtonjod

and tho straw ls*,lieft Us wuo(i*t$ngtiv
These aro so long and stornier that
th . will reach Into anything; PU ey
are a aita*, saying on thu ha'Vd a, ind
allow the use of much hotter water."
Many recommend the use of soft pa
per in cleaning greasy dishes, ket
tles and pans. The' papers may be
burned, thus disposing of much of
the grease, which would otherwise
find Its way into the kitchen sink
