Southern Mill Men Will Meet Poosc
Capt. Ellison A. Smyth, president of
the Polzer Manufacturing Company,
and vice president of the American
Asiatic Asuociation, w ith members of
the association und leading Southern
inanufacturerH, will iiave a conference
with President Roosevelt in Washing
ton on Friday to urge action on tho re
ported boycott hy Cliina against Amer

Association in composed of exporters
and mill representatives in the export
trade. It has a branch in Shanghai
and controls a big share of the foreign
trade. The report that China here
after may refuse to admit American
goods because of tho Chinese exclusion
aet, which prevents Chinese merchants
anil students from entering this coun

leaders, according to common news
At the conference Friday tho Presi

friendly offices to avert tliis expected
boycott. It in claimed that the only
way out of the solution is in the repeal
of the exclusion act, and the South is
advocating that step. ? Greenville

Au Entertainment at Tokcena.
Mr. Editor; On the morning of May
37th our young folks were made glad
to see the sun rise bright and clear,
after raining all of t hat week, and at
an early hour the boys and ?iris began

great bunches of flowers to decorate
tor the entertainment to bo given that
night. Wo had been practicing for
tins about six weeks. The proceeds
are to be used in making improvements
on Cross Roads RaptiBi Church at this
Hoys and girls never worked more
faithful for a good cause. Every
thing went along smoothly from the
beginning, and they certainly deserve
credit for t heir perseverauce. Miss
Mattio Cleveland, especially, should be
praised for being so untiring in her
efforts for this good cause. After
working hard all day tbe stage pre
sented quite a pretty appearance.
We felt much encouraged when long

The program consisted of recitations,
songs, dialogues, tableaus and music,
tbe latter being furnished by Messrs.
Cray ton and Thornton, and Misses
Emma and Luna Moore, of Westmin
ster, which was very ninch enjoyed by
all. The neat little sum of $16 was
realized. We feel so grateful to God,
the giver of all good and perfect gifts,
and we felt that He was smiling down
on us and approved of our labors and
has crowned them with success.

After the cool, wet weather wo are

East week having passed without any
rain, our farmers are about to over
come tho grass and are about to get
their crops in a growing condition.
The furmers are beginning: to har
vest what otherwise might have been
a good wheat crop, but owing to the
ravages of the fly in the early spring,

they are not men easily discouraged.
A short wheat crop, therefore, will not
keep them from trying again. Al
though the wheat crop is very short
the oat crop bids fair to be a good one,
and there is plenty of them sown, too.
