NKWS FROM MADDEN.
Correspondeat Suggests Something \n
the ?*j of Politics.
Madden. Feb. 1?. -As regards the
reduction of cotton acreage in this
community Uta farmers are evldeutly
"sawing wood and saying nothing'
but they are doing lots of thinking and
that* a hopeful sign?mighty hopeful.
And when, as some of them are do
ing, they got pencil out and begin to
figure how they can mix their own
fertiliier to have a right per cent of
potash, nitrogen and phosphorous acid
they are learning, and that another
good thing. Jud L?ngsten says he is
going to raise plenty of corn this
year and '"plenty of corn" means ev
ery time less cotton and conning down
to Mr. Jno. A. Madden, he has bought
a pair of $700 mules, but then he
swapped three for the pair and there
fore that means less cotton. Linwood
Martin already has his watermelon
patch fixed and there are none to
beat him raising melons, either. The
Flnley boys have always been farm
ing on the right track, plenty of corn,
home-made molasses and pork?none
excessive fertiliier users, except P.
W. used heavily last year. . He'll not
go so stroug this year. Uncle Flnley
has figured it out how much , better
off he'd have been had he not planted
a cotton seed last year-?instead had
graiu and followed by hay. Mr. Prof
fitt was a new farmer in this section,
but he sees now more corn on his
place is the needed thing and so on.
Mr. Powers, one of the new neighbors,
from the Amount of corn and rough
nees moved, already knows how to
farm. Mr. L>ean bas his individual cot
ton crop prepared. He plowed it In
the fall and put in fertiliier- Yes. sir.
no celling of seed with him at a give
away price! He put the cotton seed
in for fertlUter and bis neighbors will
watch that cotton patch sure. And
Mr.'J. A. Wofford's cotton acreage has
been reduced for the last 10 years and
if the rotation that is practiced by this
farmer was the rule and not the ex
ception, cotton would ever bring Its
value. The farmers through here will
"bring forth fruits meet for repent
ance" and that's the essential thing.
it takes more than sleet or snow
to dampen the ardor of youth. The
young people of the community had a
delightful valentine party at the home
of Mr. ProflUt. Those who enjoyed
; the social and the bountiful supper
at the hospitable Proffltt home were
the Misses Drown. Mahattey. Martin.
Madden and Messrs. Moore. Roper.
Brown, L?ngsten and Martin.
The Messrs, Moore, of Laurent were
the guests Sunday of their brother.
Mr. Thad Moore.
Mrs. Tessie Martin, of Laurent, vis
ited her parents. Mr. and Mrs. J. R.
Flnley recently. While here she was
pleasantly greeted by old friends. Lit
tle Mary and Bobbie accompanied her.
Mr. John L. Flnley went ip to Eno
ree Saturday to see his sister Mrs.
John Wright and also to bring home
little Margaret, who has been on a
visit ^o her aunt. Mrs. Bess Wright.
The friends of Mr. T. S. Langston
will be glad to hear that he js up
now from his recent Illness.
Miss Benuie Brown of Cross Hill has
been on a visit to her cousins Misses
' Ben nie and Lillian Proffltt and was?
here for the Valentine party. Miss
I Edna Proffltt also came home for the
Messrs. Wofford. Dean and Flnley.
trustees for New Prospect school were
in I.aureus Saturday to see the super
l intendent of education aud select a
plan for a new school house, that will
probably be built in the near future.
Mr. Watt Cunningham is not so
well these days and Mrs. M. T. Allison
has had a slight attack of rheumatism,
both are up. however.
As to who Jacks township would
support for president, the county at
large could rest assured of this fact,
"he'd be a simon-pure Democratv' And
I wish here to call attention to the
fact that there is some mighty good
senatorial timber for Laurens county
down In Jacks. If not out of order
I rise to nominate J. Andy Jones. Sr..
as a suitable candidate to represent
Laurens In the senate. Do I get a sec
"THE WOLF** CO MI ML
Fucene Walter*? Snceessfal Produc
tion to be Seen here Tuesday Even
Alan Dale, the critic of the New
York American. In his review of Eu
gene Walter's second successful play.
"The Wolf." said:
"Success Is a dreadful tyrant. It
sits up and snarls, shows its ugly
teeth, and dares the dazzled play
wright to encroach upon its territory.
It holds its position jealously, and re
fuses to be budged. Success, in fact,
is a frightful old-tuan-ot-the-sea. Mr.
Eugene Walter, the happiest dramatic
find of the year, must have felt this
Saturday night at the Lyric. Theatre
when his secnd play, vThe Wolf was
offered?right on the heels, as it wore,
of his "Paid in Full." And there WO
all sat?asking ourselves just that:
Was "The Wolf" as good as "Paid
in Full"? Would it be as much of
a success? Were we right when wo
announced that Mr. Walter was a
"find"? His second play is a nielo
dramma, vivid, but primitive, and vit
al: his first was in a lighter vein.
Broadway is not particularly addicted
to melodrama. But - The Wolf" Is di
rect, capitally written, sincere, and
free from conventional flapdoodle.
With "Paid In Full" staring it in the
face and grinning a double-ware to
duplicate its success, "The Wolf hit
the first ntghters in spite of all. This
was achievement: It was a feat! It
proved beyond peradventure of a
doubt that young Mr. Eugene Jfalter
is made of the right dramatic stuff
Theatregoers of Laurens will have
an opportunity to view this great
dramatic success at the Opera House
