Restored to Health by Lydia
E. Pinkhan's Vegetable
Fulton, N. Y. - "Why will women
pay out their money for treatment and
- receive no benefit,
when so many have
p roved that Lydia
will make them
well? For over a
year I suffered so
from female weak
ness I could hardly
stand and was
afraid to go on the
street alone. Doc
tors said medicines
were useless and only an operation
would help me but Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable C&mpound has proved it
otherwise. I am now perfectly well
and can do any kind of work."-Mrs.
NELLIE PHELPS, care of R. A. Rider,
R.F.D. No. 5, Fulton, N. Y.
We wish 'every woman who suffers
from' female troubles, nervousness,
backache or the blues could see the let
ters written by women made well by Ly
dia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
If you have bad symptoms and do not
understand the cause, write to the

Feeling that thirty years of hon
est industry ntitled him to a vacation,
and as his son Tom was now quite
able to do any work which might
arise, Mr. Bilks, the well-known,
plumber, departed for a three months'
motor tour, leaving Toni in charge of
the shop. With youthful enthusiasm
Tom set to work and it was with
complacent pride that he greeted his
father upon his return.
"And how is business ?" Bilks asked
"Fine!" Tom responded. "There's no
use in talking, dad, but I have made
things hum! I've cleaned up every
thing-there isn't a single unfinished
job on the slate."
Mr. Bilks turned pale.
"You mean to say you've finished
with that bathroom at Brown's and
the kitchen sink at Smith's ?" he said
"Sure! Why, those jobs have been
hanging on longer than I could re

VISITS SUMMERTON PASTOR
Editor of Baptist Courier Pays Call
on Rev. Gordon and Makes Trip
The senior editor had a delightful
visit on the third Sunday to Pastor
M. W. Gordon and his two churches,
Summerton and Calvary. These
churches are about ten miles apart,
both in the Santee and Pastor Gor
don gives his Sunday mornings to
Summerton and the afternoon to Cal
vary. He preaches to both churches
every Lord's Day and the good Ford,
presented not long ago by his devoted
people, makes the arrangement ideal.
Calvary is one of the oldest churches
in the State and the second oldest in
the Association. It was organized in
1768 and the High Hills, which is
also in the Santee, in 1755. Calvary
has a great record. It has not only
ministered to all the interests of its
community for a- century and a-half,
it has also been the mother Church
of all its section, again and again
sending colonies to this new church
and that; and it has also blessed the
State and the denomination with
statesmen, ministers, deacons and
useful laymen. This church is the
home of the Tindals. In its member
ship Rev. R. B. Mahony, now of
Minnesota, was raised. His father
was pastor here for sixty-five years.
As to size, the church is a mere sha
dow of its former self. The old
house is there with its ante-bellum
associations and the graveyard with
its forgotten graves, its unmarked
graves, its crumbling stones and its
great monuments. The membership
now is only forty-two; but this small
number holds choice spirits and the
work of the church is kept well to
the front. There are seventy-nine in
the Sunday school and the church is

BELHAVEN AND PANTEGO.
From Raleigh Advocate.
When the Bishop announced Pan
tego and Belhaven as my charge for
this year quite a few of the preach
ers told me it was one of the best
charges in the Conference. It is a
seacoast appointment and for years
I had coveted such a work.

Belhaven has about 3,500 popula
tion and is delightfully situated on
Pamlico Sound. There are six white
churches in the town. The Meth
odist church is centrally located and
its membership consists of as fine
people as can be found anywhere.
They believe in education, in mis
sions, and in vital relikion. A number
of our young people are' attending
colleges. The town has a well. at
tended public school of eleven grades.
Not a few of our members, both men
and women, pray in public. It is the
spirit of the people to love their pas
tor and show him their appreciation
in many ways. No mistake was made
in saying this is - one of the best
charges in the Conference.
Phntego is a town of about 400 in
habitants, on the railroad, four miles
from Belhaven. There are four
white churches in this town. Every
thing said of Belhaven is equally
true of Pantego. I preach at Pan
tego each second Sunday, morning
and night, and at Belhaven twice
each of the other Sundays.
There is also another appointment
Leechville, a village about seven miles
from Belhaven, at which I preach- the
third Sunday afternoon of each
month. This is a new appointment,
just organizing, and while the mem
bership is small in number it is ex
cellent in quality.
The charge is well organized in
Sunday School and missionary work.
The stewards fulfill disciplinary re
quirements. They have system in
their finances and pay their preacher.

This section is a country of huge
possibilities. In addition to the
fish and oyster industry, saw mills,
and other business enterprises, the
swamp lands are being drained and
brought into cultivation. As an in
stance, some Northern capitalists
have purchased a swamp jungle of
15,000 acres, which they are having
prepared for cultivation. A 'main
canal about fifteen miles long, thirty
feet wide, and twelve - feet deep is
being cut. Two large boats are float
ed on this canal for the dredging.
The fall is only abont twvo feet a mile.
From this main canal lateral canals
of nearly the same size, and a mile
apart, are extended through the body
of the land. The timber and jungle
is then cut from the land and burned
thereon, and small ditches are then
dug, and I am told it costs about
fourteen dlollars an acre to dig these
small dlitches and get the land thus
prepared. The first year, and some
times the second year, the corn is
planted by "sticking." This is the
boriginal mode of farming and is
necessary because the ground is too
soft for dlriving an animal over it to
plough. A sharpened stick is stuck
into the ground and the grain of corn
is dIropped into the hole. The native1
soil is exceedingly fertile. No grass
or wveeds grow for the first year or*
two. After having planted the corn
by the "sticking" process, absolutely
nothing more is dlone, till harvest
time. In the meantime this 'corn has
grown luxuriantly and the average
field is thirty to fifty bushels to the
acre the first year. On account of the
softness of the soil the corn -must be
carried from the field in baskets. The
cost of production is satid to be about.
six cents a bushel. The second year
the ground Is burned over and again
planted by the "sticking" process
with equally good results. The third
year the groundl has become suf
ficiently solid to legmn cultivation
with a plough, and then the yield
runs up to sixty to one hundred
bushels or more to the aere.
A remarkably successful future
avyaits this part of the South when
its swamps are drained and brought
into cultivation. The soil is so fer
tile that for many years it will need
no guanos. Great ditches or canals
take off the water, rendering the land
dry and firm, and in four or five years
it can be planted in cotton. I am
told that the value of these lands
when brought Into cultivation runs
up into hufhdreds of dollars an acre.
The physical conditions and op
portunities here seem almost unlim
ited, and the people fear God and
keep His commandments. The spirit
