Epworth League Sociable.
A most delightful social and literary
entertainment was held by the Epworth
League at the Methodist Parsonage on i
last Friday night, February 18th t
About thirty persons were present and p
everydody seemed to have a good time e
generally. Mr. Ellerbe, the President I
of the League. made a short address of r
welcome in which be endeavore I to 1
make everybody feel at home. ii
A unique feature of the program was c
the Musical Wedding. The young men c
were placed in the hallway while the a
young ladies appeared behind a screen. o
The young men selected their part- p
ners by guessing the shadow upon the n
screen. When selections had been b
made, all returned to the parlor where b
the contest began. Eighteen questions ti
were:asked.coosisting of "What was f<
the gils name?" "What was the boys s
name?" "Where were they boun?', fi
&c. As each question was asked, Mr.
Lawrence Bradham played on the pi- v
ano the first chord of the song that an- t
swered the question and the test was e
in guessing the song. It. was a most n
interesting affair and some of the s'
young people showed great famiiiarity a
with musical compositions. It was o
amusing to hear the answers of some t
Perhaps the most entertaining part f;
of the program was the delightful mus o
ic rendered on the Violin by Miss 1
Gladys Turner. of Sumter, accompanied d
on the Piano by Miss Irma Smith. also a
of Sumter. Miss Turner is getting t
class in Violin instruction in Manning
Quite a number have alrealy joined i
the class. S
Light refreshments were served to a
all present after which games, consist- s
ing of "Ring On A String, "Going to
Jerusalem," &c., were played, all seem o
ing to enter with great zest into this e
part of the entertainment. il
The Epworth Leagrue has,. arranged a
to hold a Social A nd Literary Meeting v
once a month and the Cowmmitte in s
charge will see to it the occasions will d
be live and entertaining. ' a

The Clarendon county Snday School a
Convention will be held at Manning on a
Fenruaryv 26th and 27th in the Metho- a

One of the principal speakers for the a:
meeting will be Mr. R. D). Webb, Gen si
eral Secretary of the South Carolina

Sunday School methods, and is an at- u
tractive, inspirational speaker. g
Miss Emma Lou Schirwer of Char

Japan Got the Art From China, Then
.Surpassed Her Tutor.
Lacquer has furnished a most varied
material for one of the earliest Indus
trial arts of China, and, though there
are no authentic records of Its origin
nor of the steps of Its early develop
ment, the process is already called sa.
ancient one in a .wbrk published in
1387, in the first year af the Ming pe
riod, which proves that the art was
known in as remote an epoch as the
Sung dynasty. The enlinaing~ years
of its development were rached in the
reign of the Emperor Chien Lung (1736
95), who greatly encouraged its manu
facture and had idrge- quantities of
lacquered objects made with which to
furnish and decorate his palace. After
his death the art seems to have de
dined in merit, and since that time lit
tie or nothing of any high artistic value
in Chinese lacquer has been accom
The Japanese first learned the proc
ess from China, but have since brought
It to a point of perfection which' sur
passes the finest productions of the
Cinese. In Japan. however, lacquer is
applied solely to objects of compara
tively small size, while in the Chinese
empire It served to decorate screens
and panels of tremendous dimensions.
Lacquer is divided into two classes
painted and carved lacquer. Both kinds
are sometimes inlaid with mother-of
pearl. Ivory, jade and various semi
It was in thie early seventeenth cen

Diversification or Crop Rotation.
We hear a great deal now-a-da
bout crop rotation, according to th
ylopedia of American Agricuiture
"a recurring succession of plane

As a word of explanation I will met
ion in passing the origin of Crop R<
ation The system of farming whic
ras originally followed was to grow
rop on a piece of land continously u
it the yields decreased below the poit
rhere production was profitable. The
he land was allowed to rest or to h
pack to a state of nature, growing u
o weeds, bushes etc., while a ne
piece was cleared and worked tb
ame way. If the old field was clears
fter a few years, its original fertilil
ras restored for reasons which we a

now too valuable, we cannot affot

ds, but the only solution to the prol
ein is to practice diversification, t
rop rotation, a hich will beyond
ingle doubt, will keep our lands up t
high state of cultivation if proper]
anaged. Sad to say that most of tb
ends in this county are very deficie
a humus, due largely to the fact the
he farmers have not practiced th
roper crop rotation, which they soon
r or later will have to come too. An
know of no better time to start tha
ight now. You cannot start too earl.
Vithin the next few years we are g<
g to have to depend on some othe
rop other than cotton for our move

better state of cultivation than mos
f them are, we are going to have
retty hard row to hoe. Now yo

I will now mention a few of the ad
antages of a crop rotation. A rots
ion of crops improves the physics
ondition of the soil, helps to conserv
oisture and vegetable matter in tb
ail, lessens the damage from insect
nd plant diseases, aids in the cootr<
f weeds, increases crop yields, di;
ributes the necessanv labor of cro
roduction, and helps to systemati2
arm operations. I would discuss eac
ne of these nine advantages seperati
r, but it would require too lengthly
iscussion, but will be glad to answe
ny questions concerning the m,
here be any.
Rotations do not conserve fertilit:
lany people hold that rotations co:
erve soil fertility. While crop yie'd
rill decrease much more slowly wher
everal crops are grown in a rotatto

arious crop plants all require th

raw more heavily on one and some o
nother. The three which are mo:
rgely used and which are most like

In conclusion I will mention the es
tials of a good rotation: An intet
