WHAT 'THE PREACHER SAID.
Wh~ile the .editor of a certain news
palper was awvay from home for
awhile he l.eft the paper in .charge of
a minister of the gospel. During the
nlinister's stay in the office the fol
lowing letter came from a subscriber:
"I know very well that I paid my sub.
scription to your paper the last tim~e
[ was in your office. if I get any
more letters from you as I received
last week I will come in and maul
h-l out of you." The minister an
swered the notle like this: "I have
been trying to get that out of the
ediitor for ten years, and if you will
come down and maul it out af 'him
then, dear sir, I have thirty niem
bers of my church I will lo6 'you op
Cook .toves freen $20

ttftlnglone among the iltt +
AniA f'# eyes were touchedS
And there was laid upon my limsy
flame of fire.
I laugh and shout, for life is goo,
Though my fort are set in sileni
In merry mood I leave the crowd
To walk in ny garden. Ever as I
I gather fruits and flowers in my
And with joyful heart I bless the sur
That kindles all the place with radi
I run with playful winds that blow
Of rose and jessamine in eddying
At last I come where tall lillies grow,
Lifting their faces like white saints
While the lilies pray, I kneel upon
I have strayed into the holy temple
of the Lord.
When I read this beautiful poem
written by Helen Keller, a feeling of
unworthiness came over me. I real
ized how unworthy I was, with eyes
that could see, ears that could .hear,
and a tongue that could speak of th3
great evidences of God's goodness.
With ears to hear, how often I was
deaf to the voice that told me of
God's love for me. And with the
gift of speech, I so often refrained
from writing the words of thanksgiv
ing to a God whose goodness is past
understanding. And since reading
this poem, which I give to you I feel
as never before that we should re
dedicate our lives to Him who gave
his all for us, and that our plans for
the 1921 Thanksgiving should be so
planned that while we are planning
for the home-coming of our own
loved ones, beautifying the home and
getting everything in "apple pie" or
der, each one of us should plan for
the pleasure of at least one other
person. While thinking of our own
pleasure, think of the many shut in,
of those who are lonely and sick, of
those in the hospitals, of the sad,
desolate old people in our alms
houses (and of those tragic alms
houses in the different counties in
our state). Think of the unfortun
ate ones in prisons, and think, too,
that our Lord said, "Brethren, if any
man be overtaken in a fault, ye
which are spiritual restore such an
one in' a spirit of weakness, consider
ing thyself, also lest thou be tempt
ed" Think of the man who is mark
ed by the convict stripes; think that
he is still some mother's son and that
"once he was pure es the driven
snow as he knelt at his mother's
knee." And that perchance that
same mother is today crying out in
agony, "Where is my wandering
We cannot afford to do less than
to resolve that as God( has blessed
us we will be a blessing to some one
else, and1( with a thankful heart we
will rememaber that "It is more bless
('d to) give than to receive.''
Rt. H. HI.
SECRETARY WALLACE APPEALS
TO ALL TO TRY TO HELP
Washington, March 12.-An ap
p'eal for "every good citizen" to do
wvhat he can to help the farmers
thr'ou;h the p: 2riod cf depression, not
for the sake of helping the farmer
alone, but "for the sake of helping
himself," was madec today by Secre
tary of Agriculture Wallace' in his
first formal statement.
Pricas of farm products must rise
and pr1ices of other prodlucts come
dlown before the normal relations be
tweeni them has been restored, Mr.
Walace' asserted. Talk of bringing
prica~s back to a pre-war level, he'de
clared, "is morally wrong and econo
mically impossible," add~ing that
"everybody would be better off" if
an effort were made to bring about a
price level" say 70 per cent above
the pre-war normal.
Secretary Wallace said he doubt
ed whether the people in the east
realize just wvhat has happened to the
farmers of the producing sections."
Citing c onditiong in the central
west as an example, he said that
therer,-notwithstanding that "we have
the finest rural civilization, taken as
a whole, the world has evei seen,"
ths farmers are now in "a most try
ing period andl are suffering severe
financial losses." F"armers through
out the nation, especially thosis Ir the
south and west, he added, "are ex
periencing exactly the same trouble,"
This widespread agricultural di e
pression results fro the'high cost '.
production. dnd because farm pro.
duets have dropped "oat of all pro.
portion" to the prices et othez

fertilizer in South Carolinas
"What South Carolina Farmers say: al
"An 8-3-3 and an 8-4-4 fertilizer are general favorites in South C
lina, though some others are used with success. The applications of
best farmers vary from 600 to 1,000 pounds per acre and e increase fr
1,500 to 2,000 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"Typical reports from South Carolina farmers are as follows:
"A. G. Clarkson, Wateree, uses 600 pounds of a 10-4-2 broadcast

He gets 1,500 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"R. H. Belser, Sumnierton, usually applies 500 to 800 pounds o
8-3-3 fertilizer under the crop and uses 100 to 200 pounds of nitroge
top dress, applied half June 1st and half July 1st. His yield is about 1
pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"P. B. Day, Jr., Trenton, applies 700 pounds of an 8-3-3 in furrow
top dresses with nitrogen at the rate of 150 pounds applied half June
and half July 1st. Obtains 1,500 and more pounds'of seed cotton per a
"James S. Culbreth, Johnston, uses an 8-3-3 fertliizer; applying
to 1,000 pounds in the drill before planting; side dresses with nitrate of s
and kainit when cotton is 6 to 10 inches high. He gets.1,200 to 2,
pounds of seed cotton pler acre.
"Wade H. Herring, Marion, uses a 9-4-2; applies 800 pounds and
pounds of nitrogenous top-dresses. He gets 1,500 pounds of seed co
"A. A. Barnes, Hartsville, applies 800 to 900 pounds of an 8-4-4 b
planting and top-dresses with a 4-7 1-2-0 at the rate of 150 to 200 po"
per acre. He gets 1,200 to 1,500 pounds of seed -cotton per acre.
A. H. Ward, Darlington, applies 800 to 1,000 pounds of an 8-3-3, usi
about three-fifths at planting time and -balance as side dressing in t
applications. He gets about 1,500 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
"J. J. Lawton, Hartsville, applies 1,000 pounds of an 8-3-3, uses 10
200 pounds of nitrogenious top-dressing and gets 1,400 to 1,800 pound
seed cotton per acre.
"M. W. Buffington, Saluda, R. F. D., No. 2, applies 700 pounds of
8-3-3 or 8-4-4' before planting and uses 150 to 200 pounds of 5-8-0
side dresser, applied about July 1st. He gets about 1,500 pounds of s
cotton per acre.
"W. D. Holstein, Batesburg, applies 600 pounds of an 8-4-4 and
pounds of nitrate of soda and gets 1,500 pounds and' more of seed co
"D. S. Yates, Lykesland, uses. 70Q pounds of a 6-4-2 with one
under the row and the balance as a side dressingaftii' chopping.
100 to 200 pounds of nitrogenious top dressing is given in June or
His yields are 1,500 pounds of seed cotton per acre.
- "A. E. Brock, Summerton, applies 800 pounds of an 8-4-4 or 8-3
which 600 pounds is put under the row and 200 pounds used as a
application. Either a 4-7 1-2-2 or nitrate of soda is used as a top dres
in addition. His yields are 1,500 pounds of seed cotton per acre."
You will -hotice that these farnmers live in sections of the state w
the scasons are longer than ours, the summer is earlier and the fall is I

brings splendid results there, but up here, where the seasons are sho

Coker's article, which was reproduced in the Daily Mail on the 19Oth
he states that it was unprofitable to raise more cotton than could be ga
before bad weather set in. He stated that low grade cotton not on
not pay the coqj of production'but that it caused good white cotton
f or less than It was worth. White cotton would bring more if it we
for this low grade stuff, he stated moreover that it would pay any
to use $12.00 to $15.00 worth of fertilizer to the acre of cotto
knows you 'must use fertilizer to make good crops and he knows you
get out of the hole by making short crops.
Th~e salvation of this country depends upon increasing productio
acre, not reducing it. Experiment stations have proven that one po
high grade well mixed goods will make one pound and more of seed
which means that money spent for fertilizer pays from 300 to 500 pe
on the investment. We will not get out of the hole we are in losing
of that sort. There wvere no profits in farming last year, but we
had a year like that before and may never have another. We have
make a living, and w'e want something more lihan a living, and we m
business to get it. If the British and French had given up when
were going heavily against them in 1914, 1915, 1916 and 1917 they
would have won dut.
The cotton acreage will be reduced this year. When this is do

that fertilizer wvill be sold for can~ only.'~ We have a very good s
