"Mr. Wicker has not seen service ev

which is now occupied by W . en.
"John W. Wicker, the printer, was an
born October 24, 1847. Twenty years ha
later he began the printer's trade on th'
the Progressive Age, which at that it
time was published b y R. H. Greneker.
Later he became connected with the we
Newberr.y Herald published by Thos. nei
F. Greneker, and has been with the th(
office continuously since. He entered MI
the Confederate Army in the boy mI
company, known as Company A, of
which W. H. Holman was Captain, ab

THE CLEMSON INSTITUTE.
At Newberry Last Saturday-Atten
dane Good-Many People Inter
ested in the Exhibits.
The Clemson Institute was held in
Newberry oil Saturday and at Pros
perity on Friday.
Aloing with the ear are Professors
Harper. Newman. Doggett and Mor
rison. They have two cars, which
have been fitfed up by the Southern
railway, in one of which the profes
sors live and- slep and in the other
they have a great many exhibits,
showing the- work done at Clemson
college. The professors also lecture
on sUbjects pertaining to their several
chairs, and then invite the farmers
and ladies and people generally to go
througi the ear, where they explain
again the work that is being done at
At Prosperity there was . a very
large gathering of farmers, probably
1,500 people being present. A barbe
cue was served and the meeting was
held in the grove about a
mile from the town and the speeches
were delivered at this place. Unfor
tunateily a shower of rain interrupted
the meeting, but the farmers were
very much interested in getting all
the information possible pertaining
to their calling. At Newberry the
speeches were made in the court house
and the meeting here was quite sue
cessful and quite a number of far
mers was present, who gave very
close attention to all the lectures. Mr.
R. T. C. Hunter presided and intro
duced the speakers.
Prof. Newman talked on the in
creased production of orops, laying
special stress on4eotton, by selection
of seed and varities. He told of the
work done at the various emperiment
stations in the development of new
varieties, testing them and discard
ing or recommending as their yields
justified. The upland long staple
was taken up and recommended as it
will give larger cash returns than the
cortimon short staple kind. He show
ed that by improving the quality that
a man could get twice the profit from
the same yield of cotton.
The next speaker, Prof. . Harper,
took up soil improvement. First, bet
ter preparation by deep plowing so
as to give th.e plant roots a larger
feeding be.d to hold the moisture and
to let in air and water to break down
and make available the l.arge quanti
ies of plant food now in all of our
soils; second, by the proper use of
commercial fertilizer for the perman
ent improvement of soil as well as
the next crop grown; third, by the
rotation of crop; so as to protect the
and from washing in winter by the~
use of the liguminous plants to pro
duce nitrogen, and to .turn under to
put humans or vegetable matter in the
soil. This method of r~otation does
not continually drain the land of the
saie elements of plant food as the
sae crop year after year.
In order to get the best results from
this system he said we would have to
raise more cattle to consume some of
rops in the rotation arid that this
would prove very profitable. Take
for example: Cotton seed meal is
worth more as a cattle food than it
is as a fertilizer and the manure from
the animal bed will contain 80 per
cent of the fertilizing properties of
the meal. The humus in the manure
nore than pays for the 20 per cent
taken out by the animal.
Prof. Mrwson was the last speak
er. His subject wvas industrial educa
tion. In his talk on industrial educa
tion he said that he was not fighting
education along any other line and he
wished they had more of it. He
brought out that industrial education
taught the dignity of honest work
That it not only fitted a young man
o take charge and direet t),*e great
ndustries, but to actually become a
part of them arid do the work. That
the world was calling for young men
ad women that could actually do
things, and that industrial education,
in its broader meaning, was the only
way to fit our young people to take
advantagre of the many opportunities
that are offering every day.
Pi-of. Morrison closed his talk with
the remark. That he noticed that New
berry college had recently instituted
technical course and that he must
be right or he had some mighty good

A Good Barbecue-Clever People

h>m the iemote past to the present
ibis section has been the rallying
point for political leaders and politi
cal aspirants. The people have long
been noted for their thrift and for
the interest they take in public af
fairs and most especially for the wel
come reception of visitors and a
rollicking frollicing disposition to
have fun and a general good time
whe:-ever there is a public gathering
in the community.

to anend the barbecue given by the

An,ocasion of this kind is especi

Boys and girls who wore knee-pants
and short dresses when we taught
here two.or three years ago came tQ
us in larger garbs and with smiles
on their faces seemed to take exquisite
pleasure in our discomfiture in being
unable 'to indentify them as to call
them by name. We could only re
mark :"Goodnes how you all have
grown; running up like cornstalks in
shady places, etc."
We are sure that when the Jolly old
set of Jolly Street passes away that
there will be a jolly young set equal
ly'as jolly to take their places. Long
live Jolly Street.

A Card of Thanks.
I truly thank all of those for their
kindness towards my husband in his
long years of suffering; and also
thank both white and colored for
their kindness and help in his last
few days. I do hope that none will
have the sorrow and gloom over their
homes as I have. Three times the fam
ily circle has been broken in a little
more than four. years; twice in a lit
tle less than one year. May the Lord
help me in my troubles and trials.
