Rev. Thaddeus Bowman Epting,
1 now missionary in Mississippi, to'
gether with his wife, is visiting the
home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs.
L. I. Epting in Nance street. Being
so far away the home comings are
rather far apart, but the more pleasant
for the eager anticipations of being
"at home again."
I Sunday was a kind of reunion day
: for all tae family, all save one mem|
ber being present. They all came
; to share Sunday dinner together ana
1 to spend a few hours together with
their families and the "grand children."'
It was a rather busy day for the
young pastor, who attended service at
st Paul's in the morning:, addressed
the College Y. >1. C. A. in the afternoon
and addressed the congregation
; of the Church of the Redeemer at
: Our pec. le will be interested in
having a talk with our representative
in Mississippi. He lives in the capital
city, in the midst of the bott weevil
infested district and is very conversant
with actual conditions prevailing
there. He says that the weevil
his ruined the prospect of raising
cotton in the larger part of Mississippi
and sections this way. That persons
who had 10 acres of cotton this

| ten bales are gathering about 15U
pounds of seed cotton. That in one
| county of which he has certain knowledge
only one ginnery is operated
this year. However, there are sections
in this State in which, the weevil
is not so destructive, in the rich Delta
section where it seems that the cotton
outgrows the weevil's ability to
consume. This is also true in respect
to sections of Louisiana, Texas and
Oklahoma. His advice to' our farmers
is to begin to raise home produce and
other crops, grain and liay, and also
cattle and to encourage the cooperative
creameries. Mississippi is grad
ually turning to these, tnougn many
are loath to give up cotton. This year
many farmers are in a serious condition.
beside the cotton failure tli?
storms almost ruined their corn crops.
He warns us that the boll weevil is
quite near here now, and under the
, present progress will be here in a
' few years and directs the attention oi
cur people to the government advices
| on this important subject.
I They plan to return within a few
i davs to the Mississippi home.

pointnicnts of Methodist ministers to
! their respective charges for the coming
year were announced this after;
noon by Bishop Warren A. Chandler,
! and immediately afterwards the up
per South Carolina Conference adjourned
its second session.

' transacted during the morning was the
hearing of a motion by the Rev. T. C.
! Odell, presiding elder of the Anderson
' District, that the Rev. R. H. Lupo, bt
i Townesville be "silenced.'* Certain
! complaints against Mr. Lupo wero pre1
sented, among them that he dia not
preach loud enough for the congregation
to hear and that he was inactive
in regard to visiting among the con;
gregation. The conference heard a
j full and frank statement from Mr.
! Lupo, and then by a heavy majority
j voted not to "silence" him. He will
; therefore have another charge this
; year, having" been assigned to Edge|
