STATE S. S. CONVENTION.
Tho Stato Sunday school Con
vontion meets at Abbeville next
Tuesday hight. The promise of
tile attendance of many of the
leading Sunday school workers
of the country makes it more im
portant that the Sunday school
workers in every county should
attend and catch the inspiration
ilowing from .these meetings.
Special rates have been made by
t ho railroads, and entertainment
will be provided by the good
people of Abbeville. Who will
go from Marlboro ?
Don't forget the meeting call
ed for tho afternoon of the 30 th,
to nominate town oflicers. We
have reached a ixrint now in the
history of our town when every
citizen should feel interested in
its wehvare. AV o aro now on the
up-grade, and the bppprfcunity
is ripe for doing something to
build up our industries and in
vite population. Much depends
on the selection of our town of
ficers; Come, then, to the meet
ing on the afternoon of the 80th.
And, just here, we would re
mind our people that there are
few towns whose financial stand
ing will compare with Bennetts
ville, and so strong is the conii
dence that our worthy Mayor
met with no diiliculty in iloating
the indebtedness, and withstrict
economy and systematic man
agement every dollar of interest
has been paid on the bonded
dobt, and two of the bonds have
been retired. AVe are not blow
ing; we are only slating facts to
show tlie importance of selecting
our represen ta live mon. Selfish

Mr. Put kor was boru 14th of Novem
ber, 1810, ?11 Adamsvillo township,
Marlboro county, S. C., und died nour
where he was born. Ho was, thoroforo,
in his li eight y-third year, whou on
Mavch 13th, hist., his spirit passed sud

stage into that ?phere of ondloss noliv

dustrious and successful funner, a lov

sixty years n member of Pino Grovo
oh?rub-ono of itsstrongost ttays-and
to his christian faith as truo as stool.
The assertion is swooping, but I make
it without tho fear of contradiction
there never lived in Marlboro county a
mou whose sense of tho right was strong
er and who wns moro steadfast in tnuiii
ttiming what he boliovod to be just and
honest towards his fellowmen, biscoun

Energy, piety, truthfulness, honosty,

iu no f mall degree each und all of these
o?scutiuls of true manhood. His man
ner was modest and unassuming, but
his lifo is for tho rising generation a
lovely pattern, and loaves deeply.sot
lessons in those virtues which must
grow both for limo and for oternity.
In tho graveyard near his homo is where
this modest man's silent rclios sleep,
"Tho wreath, that virtue lias prepared,
Will cauHO a laurel of evorgreon,
To bloom around his grassy tomb."
Ho leaves a largo family, an ngod
wife, und an old und devoted sister, und

Some timo ago we noticed the
fact that a now. uso i iud been
discovered ior cotton seed.
Since we mentioned the fact
that an extra sweet brand of
sugar could be extracted from
cotton seed, it has transpired
that rubber cnn be manufact
ured from crude cotton seed oil.
Tho discoverer of the method
keops tho process a secret be
cause of its exceeding simplici
ty. Ile discovered the method
by accident. This much is
known : 15 per cent, of real rub
ber is added to tho crudo oil,
and this, by the unknown pro
cess, makes a rubber which the
experts cannot tell from genuine
rubber. Rubber is exceedingly
valuable. New uses for rubber
are discovered every day, and
each new use increases its val
ue. The trees which yield tho
rubber gum are of slow growth
and must sooner or later, be
come exhausted, llubber must
keep on increasing in value.
Cotton seed will become more
and moro valuable as the man
ufacture of rubber from it is de
veloped. Crude cotton oil costs
abottt $186 a ton, while rubber
is worth $2,000 a ton.
Our advice to the farmers is
to turn their attention to the de
veloping of some kind of cotton
which will be exceedingly pro
lific of seed, for tho seed will
before long be many times more
valuable than tho lint.
King cotton is being dethroned
and soon Prince Cotton Seed
will ascend the throne.-Colum
