cause of the Increased ProductIoP
of the Corn Industry.
Columbia.-The production o; cc
in South Carolina has aivanceud :
the point where a grain elevator 3
be needed within two years," said
F. S. Terry in discussing the inrcs:
in this state.
According to' stetistics prepared by
the state department of agriculture
the corn production for last yr w
about 45,000,000 bushels. Sttist''ce
obtained by the departnem sh1
that about $6,000,000 worth of ccrn
is brought from the West t i
state each year. This means t:U
the farraers buy about TM{.0:.M
els of corn annually. With aver.
conditions it is expected that th.
production will reach 5,0T. .
els this year, which would eliminxi:
the Western corn producers f:e: :ii.
Practically all corn produced ia
state is consumed by South Carelin:
farmers. Little corn is shipped cu!
of the state. Reports have been ie
ceived in Columbia from time tc
time that farmers in various secticn:
of the state experienced trcuble ir
- finding a market for their corn.
First of all, the elevator would b;
erected in Columbia because this is
the logical and gecgraphical puini
A farmer in the Piedmiont or Pee D.
sections, with an elevator here
would have little trouble in dispcsin:
of his crop.
"The elevator should be e r c'
with a view to handling all kinds c'
grain," said Mr. Terry. "Within tw.
years' time this state will be in a 1a
sition to ship corn out."
Study of Rider Spider Goes Or.
Batesburg.-The ulanters of t
section are pleased to learn that Con
gressman Lever has been su
in his efforts to have the red
pest investigation continued.
two years .ago Mr. Lever's at:'-ntio
was called to the existenwoc : h
spider in this section and th- :N
threatened by its presen~ce. Owinv:
to its alarming increase in the vicin:
ties of Batesburg. Leesville and Lex
ington, Mr. Lever was enabled to se
cure an apprepriation for an inve:;!
gation. The work has already cor
ered a period of two years. During
the past season the investigation was
ca~rried on by E. A. McGregor.
Not Much Fertilizer Being Sold.
Yorkville.-Little or no fertilizers
have been shipped to this point this
year up to this time. Inquiry of r
dealer, who is among the largest in
the county, reveals the fact that s
far he has not had exceedin-ed.
en inquiries as to pricesani :n

The outlook is that farmers thrpoW.
out this section will buy the ino'.:.ei
ents and mix their own fertil:zer>
this year on a larger scale than c v;:
before, and as a result the der.:.

large and will likely continue unles:

Three things deserve special notics
in cnnection with the scene of" the
baptism of Christ: The bapt-iism it
self. the dcEcendi'rngtt dove, and the
hreavenly -voice.
The baptism of Christ is connected
with the fact that Christ was thirty
years old. T.Is v.%ss the age when Le
vitical priest; were set apart and con
scerated to their o'ice. The baptism.
thIrcore. 1 a.s rcf%: ene to the priestly
oflcee of 7rivt. Ty submitting to ba
tism'. JeTsus idcntiies hims.elf with the
worl's sin.
Christ's b:. pti' th:n xas not per
sonal-for h- hi:nsclf was sinless.
The lesson tclls us that while others.
after their bapti:m. stood confessing
their sins in the Jordan. he im.edi
ately went up cut cf the water, for
-e had no Eins to confess-but oflicial
and representative. Christ submitted
to the same baptt ism-n which the gern era
tion of vipers had received. not be
cause he was one of them, but because
he was their representative, and had
come to tal:e upon himself their sins.
Christ, in srbritting to John's bap
tism. set his scal upon the divinely
appointed ministry of John as the ful
filn'ment of the Old Testamen
prophecy. He recognized in John's
baptisr Cod's pian for him, and he
submaitted to it vithout questioning.
If aiy man in his own right did not
need baptini. it was Chri-t. By this
act. Jesut set hi --a( upon the rite
of baptism. a rite which m* n-y be aban
do.necd or.y whon it no longer teaches
any truth. R'llion a.gain.st customs
and rites for rebIlion's 6:e is vicious
Th:e dee-t:o th' T ' fpirit indi

ice. in :i sermon in t'ie synagogue
he referred to thir truth when he said.
the spirit of the ..ord Cod is rerting
upon me. hecause he hath auointed
me to preach the gospel. Even Christ
could not accomriplish his life work
without the aid of the divine spirit.
Nor can vwe.
Tho voice from heaven could scarce
ly have been heaird by Christ without
his es.-ocating it vwith the identifica
tion of himself with the r-ervant of the
Lord in the prophecy of Isaiah (chap
