Advice ns to the varieties of roses

best obtained from the nearest grower
or nurseryman. A different typo of
rose ls needed for each of the various
purposes for which roses are used.
Those which are suitable for lawns
or borders will not give satisfactory
cut flowers ; special kinds are best for

little pruning, thc removal of the dead
wood and the cutting of the ?.hole

most varieties.
Climbing roses used for arbors and
trellises may be managed either to
give an abundance of bloom or to pro
duce shade, but they cannot do both
satisfactorily, and they are not well
adapted to the production of shade as
ninny other plants. Climbing roses
should be pruned Jnst after blooming
by having the wood of tho previous
year's growth removed.
Cut-flower roses need clean eui tu ne,

THE BIG COURTENAY 'MILL SUIT
?<-L j
Sent to Master of Greenville County [
to bo Hoard by Him.
OGroenVHo Piedmont, 5 th.)
(In an order written by Judgo F. j
Il Gary, of Abbovillo, and received ;
yesterday afternoon by Clerk of |
Court Harry Dargan, tho civil suit j
of Campbell Courtonay and tho for- ?
mer stockholders of tho Courtenay
Manufacturing Company, nt Newry, j
against W. L. Gassaway and tho pr?s
ent stockholders of tho mill, Is re-,
ferred to tho Master of Greenville
county for trial. A motion that the
caso be ref or red to the M astor was
made before Judgo Gary on April 15
by attorneys for Mr. Gassaway and
tho present stockholders of tho mill,
tho court reserving its decision until
tho Judgo could moro thoroughly
look into tho case. Ho took with him
to his homo in Abbeville all papers
connected with tho motion.
No dato for tho hearing has beon
set by Master E. Inman, though tho
general opinion of attornoys and oth
ers interested ls that tho trial can
not tako placo for several weeks yet.
With the conclusion of testimony
Mr. Inman will simply render his de
cision. It may bo overruled by tho
presiding Judgo of tho Court of Com
mon Pleas or may be appealed from
by either side in the suit.
Tho suit has been on tho docket
of tho Conn of Common Pleas for
the past two sessions. Attorneys for j
Hie defendants argued that lt should I
be referred to Hie Master on account ?
of the great amount of complicated
accounting involved in tho testi
mony.
iiie suit grew out of the sale of
tho Courtenay Manufacturing Com
pany in 1920 lo W. L. Gassaway and
tho stockholders of the Isaqueana
Mills for tho sum of $ 1,SOO,OOO.
The plaintiff is attempting to collect
over $250,000 in notes alleged tobo
due on tho purchase price of tho
mill, while in their answer tho de
fendants claim that tho mill snould
be turned back lo its former owners
because of alleged manipulation of
the books of the company by Camp
bell Courtenay to escape income tax,
which makes them Hablo to tho tax,
with penalties.

Stop-Amateur Hypnotist Was Not
Able to "Bring Victim Back."
Durham; Alaine, May 8, -?'After
taking a correspondente course lu
hypnotism Ralph Seaman, of York
village, Maiuo, a freshman at New
(Hampshire College, tried out his
powers on bis room-mate and fel
low-townsman, W. Bryant Hobson,
before au admiring student audience.
The spell worked. Tho subject fell
limp and tho amateur was satisfied
he had acquired tho art. But when
he tried to^ bring his room-mate back
to consciousness Seaman discovered
that all passes, snapping of fingers,
shaking, pinching and shouting were
of no avail. ? druggist was sum
moned and brought stimulants; a
physician was called and gavo medi
cal attention. Two members of tho
faculty were sent for and considered
the case.
In tho ond Hobson was brought
out of the coma by a combination of
all known antidolos for hypnotism
and fainting. Prof. Chas. E. Sum
mers, head of tho college department
of zoology, declared lt a mild caso of
hypnotism, aud Sea niau said that he
was through trying to demonstrate

FOjt?'THE IMPROVEMENT OE SOIL
t'so Volvot Roans-Take Every Op
portunity to linprovo.
Clemson .Collogo, .May 4.--During
tho period of depression through
which wo aro now passing it ls ad
visable for farmers to take every op
port tu ity possible to improve tho
fertility of their land in order that
they mn) prepare to produce largor
and better crops when the prosper
ous ?om Hons return. Wo now know
that lhere is a groat deal of land tn
South U colina on which lt will not
pifty t" raise cotton under boll weevil
conditions, because tho yield is so
low that control measures cannot
bo used with profit. It Is, theroforo,
highly desirable, suggests Prof. C.
p. Blackwell, agronomist, that far
inera having such land do everything
possible this year to improvo their
fertility in order that cotton or other
crops may bo grown successfully
next year.
Ono of the best known means of
increasing tho fertility of our soil is
through tho uso of velvet beans.
Every aero of land where velvet
beans can bo grown should bo plant
ed to velvet beans this year. Velvet
benns will add moro organic matter
and 'nitrogen to tho soil than any
other crop that we can grow, and it
will pavo us from buying many (tol
lers' worth of high priced ammonia
next spring. One of the best ways
to grow velvet heans. Improve our
sells and get a crop at tho same
timo ia to plant them with corn.
Every acre of corn should he nil
acre ot velvet beans.

intense in his stand against such ap
peals. ?Ho declared that, if neces
sary, the Court would even rosort
to disbarment proceedings. Tho
Court made it clear that Ibero was
no direct reference to tho present
case, but genoral practice was op
posed by tho Court, and that to this
end it had promulgated tho new rul
ing about tho dismissal of appeals

THE VERDICT AGAINST Ol h MILL
At Enslcy ls liaised from $11,000 to
$10,000 by Court of Appeals.
Richmond, Va., May 1.-(Rovers- j
lng tbo District Court nt Greenville,
S. C., which allowed the Murray Co.
of Dallas, Texas, tho sum of $11,
?190.75 in an notion against tho Citi
zens' Oil Mill at Basley, S. C., for
balance alleged to be duo on tho pur
chase of cotton seed oil machinery,
tho United States Circuit Court of
Appeals to-day held that tho Dallas
concern is entitled tb recover $!(>,
7 75 on notes figuring in tho trans
action, willi interest from Juno 15,
1920. In addition, tho concern was
allowed $131 due on open account
and the sum ot $009.06 duo lo In
surance premiums paid by^tlio Mur
ray Company on tho account of tho
Citizens' Oil Mill. Tho Appellate
Court also allowed 10 per cent of
the amount of the notes tor attor
neys' foes.
Tho lower court was especially
criticised for failure to direct a ver
dict for the amount of attorneys'
fees instead of leaving tho question
to the judgment of tho Jury. Com
menting on the action of the lower
court with respect, to tills particular
phase of the case, the Appellate
Court said: "A moro Inviting field

AUTOMOBILE REGISTRY LARGE.
Tho Highway Department Gives Out
Some Interesting Figures.
(The Stale. i.Muy H.)
A total ol' B?2,S3 nov automobiles
were registered with tho sooth Car
olina Highway Department during
the first four months of 19 22-Jan
uary, February, March and April
according to figures announced yes
terday by L. H. Thomas, secretary
of the State Highway Commission.
This total includes nothing but
"bland new" automobiles.
During January, February and
March 2,3 05 now autos wore regis
tered, and during April 928 now ma
chines were licensed by this depart
ment. This would tend to show, to
a small extent, that the State is not
"broke."
For April Andcrsnc oounty regis
tered 39 new cars, Charleston 75,
Greenville 79, Spnrtanburg 87, and
Richland 145. For January, Febru
ary and March Anderson county reg
istered 104, Charleston 25 4, Green,
ville 192, Richland 370, Spartan burg
180 and Darlington 78. These were
tho loading counties.
Richland county, it will be seen,
blazed the way for tho first four
months in new cars. Tho popular
priced vehicles far outnumbered tho
higher priced cars, or |n other words
tho "Tin Lizzie" outstripped every
other moko, and also was moro nu
merous than tho combined total of
all other makes. For Instance, in
Oconeo county about 26 cars were
registered in April and 2 4 of theso
were "flivvers."

THE TREASURY CERTIFICATES

"Moro money was Invested In tho

Kant, of tho Walhalla otIVco.
A letter to Un? postmaster from
Howard T. Cree, government/direc
tor of savings in this district, slates
j that the recent advance in Hie prices
i ot Liberty bonds ls making govern
ment securities more popular, and
tho decline in interest rules goner
ally is making treasury .savings cer
titlcates particularly attractive. Tho
demand for govern mehi securities
has resulted in larger sales of these

they were placed on the market. Cer
tificates of the treasury savings class
to tho amount of $566,219, matur
ity value, wore purchased In this
district in March, largely t' nigh,
the efforts of the postmasters.
The local postmaster expects very
greatly increased sales hero since a
number of letters havo been distrib
uted to tho patrons of this olllco,
making known to them tho desir
able features of treasury savings cer

"While these certificates yield 4 %"1
