was solemnized at the home of Mrs.
Sophia Pinson, aunt of the bride. on
Wednesday evening, November lSth at
8 o'clock. The parlor was beautifully

"I an deoply disappointed and
greatly surprised to find that the
aiount of grain actually planted to
date and the acreage prepared for
grain is a more bagatello compared
to what it ought to be. Undoubtedly,
without any agitation, there will be
more grain planted than ever before,
but that is saying very little. The
tour of the Piedmont was particular
ly disappointing to every one in the
party. No real start has yet been
made there as a rule. The opportu
nity does not seem to be understood,
antd cotton seemts to be tho shattered
backbone of the agriculture there.
Laurens county appears to have more
grain actually sown and u'y and more
land prepared for grain than any
county we have visited. There Is
more evidence of activity from Colum-'

The pity of it Is that their opportu

much of eonditions in the State. It is
manifest that the greatest profit In the
Piedmont country is from tite planting
of wheat on the stiff red clay lands
and from oats otn the sand soils. The

is known as to preparation of soil and
as to the planting of wheat in many
sections, and tie Idea that wheat and

cotton, costing il cents a pound to
raise it, to be sold at from 4 to .7 cents
in 1915, will land them, while, with
grain, for which there is tite greatest
