success from several standpoints

encouraging report of the work of the
different societies. Of the thirty adult
societies of the district twenty of them
were represented at the district meet

G. E. Edwards, Orangeburg, Superin

ponding Secretary. Another thing
which added pleasure and inspiration
of the meeting was the presence of
Miss Leila Epps of Brazil, who at pre
sent is on a short vacation at her
e home in Kingstree. Miss Epps is a
woman of striking personality and
character and a very entertaining
talker. Her talks about our work in
Brazil made us feel a keener interest
0 in sending out missionaries, and it
was- quite a joy to the members of the
meeting to learn that Miss Mary Winn
of College Place intends to attend
Scarritt Bible Training School this
fall and in time become a missionary
to Brazil. Also that Misses Rosalie
and Anna Brown of Sumter are now
students at Scarritt's.
The people of Elliott gave us a very
warm and hearty welcome and did
everything possible to make our stay
pleasant. It was a pleasure to be as

THE BOLL M I[ SITUATION
IN CLARENDON COUNTY1
Clarendon County is now passing
through her tirst real boll weevil
scare, and the boll weevil problem is
one of the chief topics of conversation
wherever men gather. This is the us
ual state under similar conditions.
Cotton growers and business men
from the Rio Grande to Manning have
experienced this 'same feeling. The
boll weevil always strikes at an in
opportune time. No country has ever
been ready for him when he makes
his appearance, but it is up to us to
mako the best of the situation and not
to become demoralized. This will only
make bad matters worse. In some re
spects we are unusually well prepared
for the boll weevil this year. There
is probably a smaller acreage of cot
ton and a larger acreage of food and
feed crops planted in the county than
gver before in her history. This is, of
ourse, all in our favor. On the other
hand, the business affairs of our peo
ple are not in the best of conditions to
face this situation. But as already
mentioned, I think it is up to business
man and farmer to co-operate whole
heartedly and with a thorough under
standing in order that we may work
out of this into a better and safer ag
riculture than we've had before.
Do not act rashly ,or without ma
ture thought. No one can tell at the
present how much damage the weevil
will effect in 1921. This depends up
on the weather and upon the individual
farmer. We knew at planting time
that the boll weevil was present and
the fact that we have found them in
our fields is only further proof of
what we were already expecting.
The man having from fifteen to
twenty acres of cotton to the plow is
the fellow that the boll weevil will
probably hurt most. As it will be
impossible for him, even with good
weather to cultivate rapidly enough
to keel) the weevil under control. Nor
will he be able to keel) the squares
picked up before the weevils come out
of them. But the man having from
five to eight acres to the plow may,
with favorable weather, make a fair
yield of cotton.
The best policy to follow, as I see
it, is for the farmer to look closely to
his crops other than cotton. Be sure
to make plenty of corn. Grow out
plenty of meat and if practical have
a few hogs to sell. I will be glad to
help you market them. Produce
plenty of sweet potatoes and if pos
sible put them into a curing house.
Don't neglect the garden and the
family cow. These will go along way
toward feeding the family. Then by
all means get your stubble land seed
ed to some leguminous crop. Seed
aire very hard to find and the price is
high, but 110 one can afford to let this
stubble lie idle.
Last but not least, begin now to
planm0ing your system of farming foir
1922 and get things in shape to fol
l low this new scheme of farming. For
it is going to be necessary f"r th
system of farming to undergo a rath
er decided cha nge inl this ('oullty, as in
other boll weevil counties, if we are
to (o profitable faiming.

Friday, June 3rd, there was a Balb-.
Conference hell at Gable at the

babies were exanined.
The greatest fault found with these
babies were their tonsils and a(lenoids.
Dr. Woods, who was examining the

sils and adenoids were removed the
,ooner the children would be stronger.
The babies' ages ranged from two
months UP to seven years. And gen

The Nurse, Miss Ruth Moore had
placed Posters, charts and pictures
around on the walls of the church.
These charts were especially helpful
to the mothers, for they showed just
which things were the most needful
to the building of a child's body. They
also showed just how much they
should have. Placed on tables were
the right kinds of toys for small chil
dren to play with, these being the
washable kind. On another table
were placed "baby killers," these be
ing 'oca-colas, tea, eotre., stale candy,
bananas, and most of all flies. For
these flies carry all kinds of germs
around and if allowed in the house
and around the baby, the germ, which
it carries gets into the food and not.
only makes the children sick but. the
grown people as well.
The baby coop an exhibition was
made by Mr. Jeff McFaddin for his
baby. It showed how well the baby
could be kept away from flies with so
little expense. The play pen on ex
hibition was made by two small boys
After the children were examined
the mother wias given a copy of their
report, a booklet on the care of chil
dren and a fly swatter and were told
by the nurse how to dress the baby.
She (the nurse) said in hot weather
the baby should wear a slip and nap
