As to our ability to get up a credit

he material and all that is needed ih

ent I will tell you what was done by
he public in my territory, (the Eastert
atf of Clarendon couinty,) the past year.
At the South Atlantic Corn Exposi
tion held in Columbia, S. C., December
Lt to 16th. 1011, there were four prize:
ffered for exhibits from the 1st Cong.
Dist. oi S. C.. of these we won thre(
eaving one, (third) prize which was
on by Charleston county. and one o1
ur boys won the prize'over the 1si
Dist., for the best history of how hit
orn was made. Now if one half of the
ounty can lead the 1st District like
hat why can't we make a creditable ex
ibit at a countyv fair?
Let's all come together and take hold
f this school fair proposition and make
t a success. All of you boys and girls
ask your teacher about it, your teacheri
will iustruct you and aid you in getting
p your exhibit properly. If we wIll gc
head with this work we will he in line
to cornpete more advantageously with
thers for the larger or more valuable
rizes which will be offered at the na
tional corn exposition in Columbia, S.
C.. January 27th to February 9th, 1913.
And now fellow citizens of Clarendon
ounty if after all that has been done iin
the past we sit still and see our county
nd state fail at this national corn ex
osition next January it will be the
reatest drawback we could have and
t will be hard for us to ever recaim our
resent record in the agricultural line.
Yours for effort and success,

Each teacher is asked to bring his

These meetings are of greatt value to

operative that the negro teachers at

Private Argyment," "one of the few
dialect poems that Sidney Laniet
wrote," and the application of which
was never more timely. Here it is:

That farmers must stop grettin' loans.
And get along without 'em.
That bank ers, warehousemen, and sich

And Tennessy was rotten-rich
A-raisin' meat and corn all which
Draws money to Atlanta.
And the only thing (says Jones) to do
Is eat no meat that's boughten;
But tear up every I. O. U.

Two Clerical Frauds.
Two strange young men, evidently
foreigners, were in Manning recently
soliciting funds for the alleged support
Iof an orphanage in Armenia. They wore
clerical garb and han numerous testi
monials endorsing them and the noble
work in which they were engaged, but
the probability is that they were serv
ing the devil in the garb of religion.
While tr.lking with Rev. H. K. Wil
liams. pastor of the Manning Baptist
church, they became very much con
fused when somewhat closely quizzed.
They claimed to be Baptists. but when
it was noted that their credentials were
signed by a bishop, they explained that
all denominations in their country had
bishops, and under further questioning
they went so far as to say that their
Ichurch practiced infant baptism. At
other times, when interrogations ap
pearea too searching, the stranger's
would pretend not to understand. There
can be little doubt that these men are
frauds, and they are probably doing a
*thrifty business mn their swindling cam
p~aia. Something should be done to
overhaul them and put a stop to their

ILong Staple Cotton Market Assured.
Following the interesting article or
the subject of staple cotton furnished
by Mr. D. R. Coker, which -we copied
from the Hartsville Messenger, we take
pleasure in reproducing the following
equally interesting article from the
columns of the Columbia State:
Tbe first long staple cotton market in
South Carolina is soon to be opened in
Columbia by J. Sumter Moore, wh~o has
been in the cotton business in this State
for a score of years. He was for a num
ber of years connected with the Parker
Cotton mills of this city and recently re
signed his position. He will open in an
office in the Palmetto Bank building on
Main street and will actively enter the
field to purchase long staple cotton andI
furnish the farmers of the State with
high class cotton seed at a reasonable
He believes that there is a great fu
ture to the long staple cotton industry
in South Carolina. Last year there were
produced in the State about 10,000 bales
of long staple cotton which was sold for
from 14 to'21 cents a pound. The pro
duction this year is expected to be
"The situation has about reached the
stage," said Mr. Moore. when a market
is needed for the long staple cotton. I
will deal with the local mills, the East
ern mills and with the dealers in Eu
rope. I will be in a position to handle
just as many bales as are produced by
the farmers of the State and will give
the best price possible."
The production of long staple cotton
in South Carolina is being gradually de
veloped. David Rl. Coker of Hartsville,
is among the pioneers in South Carolina
in the development of the industry. It
is expected that a cotton exposition will
be held in Columbia during the fall in

On last Wednesday afternoon The
Priscilla Club was delightfully enter
tained by Mrs. J. D. Gerald. The ladies
were received by the hostess, and were
shown into the library, which was a
bower of hearts. After embroidering
for a while. "All work and no play,"
was voted out of order and tiny heart
cards were given to each to compose
original valentine verses. Much fun
was derived from this, as d&ch tried to
prove that she had not yet forgotten
school days of yore. Then a hunt for
hearts was begun, and as Mrs. T. M.
Wells was the lucky finder of the great
est number of hearts, she was presented
with a lovely "Book of Sweethearts."
Mrs. J1. 13. Cantey assisted the hastes
in serving a dainty sweet course, fol
lowed by coffee and cheese straws. Af
ter this'the guests drew their fortunes
from a large heart-shaped box which
hung from the chandelier. Those pres

As the State Teachers' Association
has been postponed until April 25th,
it will not be necessary to send in the
local School [mprovement reports un
til about the middle of March. This
will give us another month in which to
work so I hope by that time we will all
be able to send in good reports.

So great has been the success of

Atlanta during the past few weeks,
at people all over the state have
come interested and reports of re
1rkable experiences are beginning
come from all dizeetions.
Among the latest and most remark

s for over six years suffered from
mach and kidney trouble and
om eight doctors and a number of
ferent medicines failed to cure. In
aking of the strange experience,
