There are now 51 boys who have
joined the boys' com club. I trust
that all of these boys have gone into I
the club with the purpose of doing the
very best they can. After April 10 no
more names wall be received, because
it is time for those who go in with the
determination to win, to be busy about
their preparaton. I will ask the newspapers
in a few days to print the rules
governing the Boys' Corn club and will
also announce the prizes which will be
offered. I have agreed with Mr. S. M.
Duncan to call a meeting of the boys
in this club at Newberry on May 10 at
11 o'clock promptly.

that the organization may be effected
as required by the rules and instructions
given. Mr. Duncan has promised
to invite several gentlemen who are
connected with the farm demonstration
work to be present on May 10 and
make short talks to the boys. Mr. J.

Returns Are Received by Commissioner
Watson?No Crop Preparations.
Commissioners of agriculture of
seven of the principal cotton States
making report to E. .T. Watson, president
of the Southern Cotton congress,
placed the estimate of reduction of
acreage at from 1." to 2." per cent.
This reduction in the opinion of Mr.
Watson has been brought about by
the working of the Rock Hill plan, and
the wet season. The information was
furnished as a result of a letter sent
out a week ago by Mr. Watson to all
cotton States. Replies were received
from Georgia. Alabama, North Carolina,
Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas
and Tennessee. A similar condition
exists in South Carolina. Mr. Watson
said that although no official report
had been made from Louisiana that

I am very glad to get this statement,
and want to express my appreciation
for the kind words. Of course, I want
to be fair and have no desire or intention

the things about which I write. It
makes no particle of difference to me
whether there was any court house or
not, for personally I have no use for
one. I don't bother any one, and no
one bothers me, but I am not too old
to take an interest in the welfare of
| my county and State, and I like to see
everything done decently and in order.
I am pleased to know that the beautiful

once or twice a week you have no idea
whnt a wholesome effect it would have
on those who occupy the offices. I believe
it would help the administration
of justice. I hope to be able to get

proper attention were given to the
grass, and some walks were laid out,

This is Easter. It commemorates
the most important event in history.
I was wondering the other day why it
was called Easter. It is no doubt due
to my ignorance that I do not know,
but when I don't know a thing I don't
mind asking. The word does net appear
in the Bible. I suppose it is because
Easter is the goddess of light
and of sprkig. I mean that is the reason
for tho name. It is a sad Easte:* to
me in a sense, and yet T am thankful
for t-e significance and full meaning,
of Eastertide. It seems hard for us
to realize me truui iu<ti
"The grain that seems lost on the
Will return many fold in the ear."
And it is harder still for mortal man
to realize the mysterious truth that
"By death conies life, by loss comes
The joy for the tear, the peace for the
It is the long waiting and the awful
cATvqratirm that it makes it so hard.
And yet, if there were no shadows
there would be no sunshine. I guess
it is all for the best. When T was a
boy away before the war I remember
very well how my dear old grandmother
would make rabbit nests in
the old garden that stood near the

and early on Easter morn to
liunt^ the rabbit nests and gather in

and the darkness hovers. Without the
hope of the resurrection life would
be one sad, sad story. It is the one
event around which the whole universe
revolves and the hope of all mankind
"Now hear these tales, ye weary and
Who for others do give up your all,
Our Saviour hath told you that seeds
that would grow,
Into earth'? dark bosom must fall,
And then will the fruit appear."
You remember the answer of the
Master when the Sadducees came to
him and said there was no resurrection.
"You do err, not knowing the
scriptures, nor the power of God." And
then he quoted the word spoken by
God, saying, "I am the God of Abraham,
and the God of Isaac, and the God
of Jacob? God is not the God of the
dead out 01 me living. .ana wueu
the Sadducees had been silenced and
the Pharisees thought to tempt him
by one of them which was a lawyer
asking him which is the great commandment,
he said, "Thou shalt love
the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy
mind. And the second is like unto it,

self." "On these two commanditfents
hang all the law and the prophets."
And then what the Master said unto
Mary when she came to the tomb and
did not find his body where they had
laid it, but when she turned saw him
standing there. "Touch me not; for
I am not yet ascended to my father;
but go to my brethren, and say unto
them, I ascend unto my father, and
your father; and unto my God ana
your God." And that same evening
when he stood in the midst of his disciples
his parting benediction was,
"Peace be unto you." It is a beautiful
story, the story of f.he resurrection.
Remember the great commandment
and the second which is like unto it.

bemean and say unkind things of the
