Mr. Bristow, who has had experience
in managing Chautauqua success

Clark, Hon. Jos. G. Camp, of Georgia,

Eve." Mr. -Camp has had large ex
perience upon the lecture platform,

Hon. R. P. Hobson, on Monday
morning delivered his address on
"Our Country's Destiny." 'He spoke
for nearly three hours, and spoke as
a man who had a message, and who
had come to deliver it. After speak
ing for alout 30 minutes, he asked
the audience permission to remove
his coat as he thought by so doing
he could make a better speech, and
he believed that when -a man had
something to do that he should pull
off, his coat and roll up his sleeves
an do it.
H believed that the American na
tion had a great part to play in the
destiny of the world and that as' the
American people faiied or succeeded
in performing their duty, would the
nation fail or succeed. He thought
that the timne had com3e for earnest
thought and that this nation had a
great deal to do with the world's pro
gress. There were two great forcels
of destruction in the world, and natu-r
ally one would say that war was thae
greatest destructive agency, but Mr.
Hobson argued that there was an
ther that was eve~n greate- than war,
and that it had been demonstrated by'
scientific experiment that the use of.
alcohol destroyed a great many more
people than did all the wars since tihe
history of the world began. 1Ie de
livered a scientific lecture on the evils
of the use, eve-n the tienperate use atf
alcohol, and proved by scientific in
vestigation the destructive powers of
alcohol. He said that factp bore him
out i- the statement that ini all the
wars since history began, the~re had
been killed anrd wounded only 2,800,
000, and that of this number nearly
800,000 were kiilled in battle. He said
that sta'tistics would show that ina
this country alone 700,000 people died
every year from thre temperate use of
alcohol as a beverage.
He argued for an organized army to'
be placed in both the Atlantic and Pa
cific, not to engage in war, but to act
as an equilibrium in bringing about
world peace, and he believed that on
ly by an organized standing army
could wars he averted and a world
peace become possible, but he s-aidd
that with all the horrors that attended
war, they would not compare, even
if all of the nations of the world
were to attack our country at once,
with the terrible horrors, and the de
generating influences which were
brought about by the 'excdessive use,
or even the temperate use, of alco
hal by the American people.

thoughtfnl .and scientific address, and
therel is no doubt'that he put the peo

by a number of our citizens, who had
t. e r-'easure of shaking hands with

Wind and Hail.

played havoc Sunday afternoon at
about five o'clock in No. 2 (Caldwell)
township, ruining the crops of several
farmers and badly damaging those of
others. The farm of Mr. 0. H. Lane
'was where the greatest ruin was
wrought. The cotton was completely
riddled and the corn was literally
shredded. Large green peaches and
other fruits were stripped from the
trees. Mr. Lane's gin house was
blown down and a bay window of his
-residence was broken. The hailstones
were as large as guinea eaggs. The
terraces on Mr. LJane's plantation
were broken and other damage to the
place was done.

Largest Acreage Threshed-Mr. Aley
D. Hudson So Well Pleased Will
Plant 125 Acres.
Mr. A. D. Hudson had planted in
vetch on his farm in No. 6 township,
"eight acres. He threshed the other
day 3,060 pounds of vetch seed from
thes e eight acres. Mr. A. G. Smith,
the government expert, who is- co
operating with Mr. Hudson in the
farming 'operations, says that this is
the largest acreage ever threshed in
South Carolina, and possibly the larg-,
est in the United States. The seed is
worth 10 cents the 'pound and Mr.
Hudson estimates - that after allow
ing for a few oats that the vetch seed
netted him $22.50 per acrie. In addition
"to this, he has cured about two tos
of hay per acre which is worth, at
least, $15 'ir ton, inaking a total ne~t
per acre of $52.50. I
Mr. Hudson is so much pleased with
'the results of this 'experiment that he
expects tdi plant, at least 125 acres in
