COTTON CROP SMALLEST IlN
Only 8,203,000 Bales Indicated Yield
Washington, Aug. 1.-Decline of
the cotton crop during July resulted
in a reduction of 230,000 bales in
the forecast of production issued to
day by the Department of Agricul
ture, a total of 8,208,000 bales being
estinated as compared with 8,433,
000 bales a month ago. The con
dition of the crop declined 4.5 points.
Summarizing conditions the de
partment issued a statement saying:
"Cotton suffered more than the
usual decline during July, being dam
aged particularly by the boll weevil,
especially in the newly invaded terri
tories in South Carolina, eastern
Georgia, southern and eastern Okla

Cotton production this year was
t'orecast today at 8,203,000 bales of
500 pounds gross weight by the de
partment of agriculture basing its es

FOR MORE HAY IN PICKENS.
County Agent Conducts Interesting
Clemson Collge, July 28.-Pick
ens county is making hay while the
sun shines. In 1920 that mountain
county bought from January 1 to
June 1 some $300,000 worth of hay.
One farmer bought a car of hay from
the West, paying $180 for the hay
and $200.19 for the freight on it.
"What's the matter with us?" said
County Agent T. A. Bowen, "we can
grow that hay for less than $180 per
car and save all the freight besides."
The result of the county agent's
question put to himself was a hay
contest for 1921, for which the Pick
ens Chamber of Commerce provided
$100.00 in prizes to promote the
growing of crimson clover and oats
for hay. Some 50 farmers entered
the contest, but because of dry
weafther and poor stands many drop
ped out, leaving a dozen to finish the
race. Only farmers who had never
grown clover before could enter the
contest. Around 1,000 pounds of
clo\'er seed w 2re bought co-operat
ively for the contestants.
The first prize of $50.00 was won
by Clar'enc'e Freeman, Pickens i. 1,

The second prize, $25.00, was won
by Leslie Morgan, Pickens, who made
two tons of cured hay per acre; third
prize, $15.00, by A. M. Morris, Pick
ens 1 1-2 tons of hay with no fertil
i:,er at all; and fourth prize, Sloan
Childress, Easley, 2 1-2 tons consist

The contest has resulted, as
County Agent Bowen hoped, in
bringing many farmers to realize the
economy of growing their own hay,
and preparations are being made for
seeding many acres this fall. The
third prize winner, A. M. Morris, has
turned back his prize money to start
a tund for the 1922 contest; and the
fourth prize winner, Mr. Childress, is
buying enough seed to piant five
acres on him one-horse farm.
The county agent has advised his
farmers that the hay land will make
a crop of late corn even better than
otherwise, provided the stand of
clover was good, and many of them
have their acres in corn, which is
doing well. Several farmers and
land owners including A. M. Morris
and County Agent Bowen, are pro
viding each tenant on their farms
with an acre of land rent free to
grow clover and oats, followed by
In loving rememlbrance of my (lear
wvife, Clevie Robins Stewart, wvho en
tered into eternal rest July 20, 1920,
one year ago today. In the cold
gr~ave I saw her lie, oh my grief too
dIeepl to tell; oh, how I miss you
Clevie, no tongue can ever tell. I
watchedl you (lay and night, andl your
dear hands I clasped, until at last,
with a broken heart, I saw you
breathe your last; andl bending over
the open coffin, looking at your white
folded hands which wvill never, no
never, clasp mine in this wvorld
again. Gazing upon your closed
eyes from which I have so many
times seen the -light of -love shine
forth. Bereavements long withheld
descend sometimes as chastizing
grief upon our nature, to remind us
of our duty 'to our Heavenly :Father,
and direct our thoughts to that happy
and blessed home wvhere all tears and
sorrow shall be wiped away. There
is healing in the bitter cup God takes
awvay or removes far ,from us those
wve love so dlear, to increase our
faith and impress on our minds the
uncertainty of life, and to teach us
to look forward to that reunion in
another world, where there will be
no more separation and no more sad
good byes. I have often been told
of a wonderful country, a land that
no mortal hath seen, where rivers of
crystal forever are flowing. Through
fields of perpetual gr'een; the "sum
mer and sun are forever unclouded,
andl never there falleth the night; a
land where the brightness of flowers
eternal and bright. They say in that
land is a glorious city whose walls
are jaspe'r and gold, with glittering
streets of most wonderful beauty,
and wealth that can never be told.
They say the inhabitants never grow
wveary, they never knowv sorrow or
care; that joy without measure and
peace everlasting are given the
blessed ones there. I read in the
Blible the wvonderful story how Jesus
was nailed on the tree andl how in
the bitterest agony dying, he opened
that country to me aInd to all. By
faith in his love and the grae that
he gives me, I look to that country
divine, and know. that among the re
wards there awaiting, a robe and a
crowvn shall he mine. A few ,short
yC;'rs of evil past, we 'reach the hap.
py shore where death divides friends
at last. We shall meet to part, yes
to part no more.

SAME OLD STORY BUT A GOOD
.Mrs. Mahala Burns, Savanna, Mo..
relates an experience, the like of
which has happened in almost every
neighborhood in this country, and
has been told and related by thous
ands of others, as follows: "I used
a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic and
Diarrhoea Remedy about nine years
ago and it cured me of flux (dysen
tiry). I had another attack of the
same compaint three or four years
ago and a few doses of this remedy
cured me. I have recommended it
to dozens of people since I first used
it and shall continue to do so for I
know it is a quick and positive cure
for bowe1 troubles."

We wish to thank our friends and
neighbors and especially Dr. E. F.
