POLICE FORCE DINED.
Sumter's Guaro ians Were the Guests
at ? Christmas Banquet at the
From the Daily Item December 27.
Mr. A. Jackson Mosas, the clever
and popuar proprietor of the Hotet
Jackson, entertained the members of
the Sumter police force, the health
officer and superintendent of streets
with a most delightful banquet last
evening. At 9 o'clock the guests were
invited into the spacious and hand?
some dining hall where a most sump
tuous repast was spread and their
genial host, Mr. Moses, in a few, but
sincerely spoken words, expressed to
his guests the pleasure it afforded
him to have them as his guests. Two
large bowls of delicious claret punch
had been provided to whet the appe?
tites of the officers and it was thor?
oughly enjoyed by all. The bill of
fare, as'seen below, was all that hu?
man beings could desire, and the
tempting and pretty manner in which
the table was arranged, together with
the very expert and attentive manner
in which the pretty young ladies who
served the dishes to "Sumter's Finest"
and the hospitable and courteous
treatment of Mr. Moses and his
charming assistants contributed in no
small degree to the success and pleas?
ure of the evening. The Hotel Jack?
son's dining room is looked after by
a number of expert waitresses from
the North, and their close attention
to the wants of the guests has helped
to make the Hotel Jackson the popu?
lar hotel that it is. It was evident
that no punch was needed to sharpen
the appetites , of the guests as the
tempting and palatable repast was
sufficient to make a man ravenously
hungry, but it was a fact that the
punch did not go begging, even if Of?
ficers Gallagher and Reardon were
the only two present who had reserv?
ed seats on the "cold water wagon."
Mine Host Moses was in his usual
happy frame of mind which was not
augmented' by indulgence in claret
punch, as fee too was on the "wat?r
wagon," but he certainly made his
friends feel at "home, and with true,
characteristic Southern hospitality,
for which this hotel is noted, he was
worried because his guests did not eat
all that was prepared for them, al?
though that would have necessitated
calling in the help of the Columbia
and Charleston police forces.
A very happy evening was spent
and the supper enjoyed by all. All
joined in expressing to Mr. Moses
their hearty appreciation of his
thoughtfulness and h.e was assured
that ^ he made the Christmas season
unusually happy by his friendship for
his official guests.
Those present were: Sergeant John
M. Earwick, Officers W. A. Tribble,
W. W. McKagen, A. D. Owens, Peter
Gallagher, W. G. Pierson, H. J. Sey?
mour, Superintendent of Streets L. E
White and Health Officer E. I. Rear?

ABOUT TREE PLANTING.
Some Things to Consider This
It is already time to be thinking
about tree-planting, next spring, and
there are many things to be consid?
Don't think that the biggest tree
from a nursery is the best t-ee to
plant. Extra size at the start uoe^
not necessarily mean quicker growth
of extra size thereafter. Buy medium
sized, thrifty trees. . Overgrown giants
are usually a disappointment, for,
while they are big they often lack the
vitality, the rooting grasp, tho stay?
ing power and the adaptibiiity ot the
younger and smaller specimens. Be?
sides, big trees cost more, and they
generally fail to earn the extra cost
Don't put a bundle of loose, unpro?
tected trees in your wagon and then
dive five miles to your home. That is
don't do this if you expect the trees
to live and thrive after you plant
them. Protect the roots from sun and
wind by covering them with a wet
blanket or some damp straw. Never,
let the roots dry out, \even for a half
hour. A short dry spell may not kill
them, but it surely detracts from
their vitality. When you get home,
don't dump the trees on the ground
and let them lie exposed to the sun
and wind until you "unhitch" or get j
your dinner. No. Get your spade at j
once and "heel tal3 the trees, covering
every root with moist earth. Then at?
tend to the team and your dinner.
"Fuss and bother," you say? Perhaps
but it pays.
Don't dig a six-inch hole and* try to
jam the tree roots into a space too
small to hold them comfortably. -The
labor thus saved isn't money gained.
Make the hole large and deep enough
to accommodate the roots when
spread ont in all directions, as they
should go. Don't set the tree too deep
or too shallow; set it just right-that
is, a little deeper than when it stood
in the nursery. You can usually*see
the old ""dirt line" on the tree's trunks
Don't cover the roots with clod or
subsoil; throw in some fine, moist top?
soil first, trample it down with your
feet, then shovel in the, coarser, or
poorer, ' soil. Don't trample the last
two inches of soil on top; leave it
Don't think that a tree's welfare
or rapid growth -depends upon the
large amount of "top" you leave on it*
"The larger the top the slower the
growth," is a good rule^to go by.
Shorten in the side branches and head
back tbe leading shoots. Don't W
afraid to use the knife or the pruning
Shears. Remember that the tree has
lost during its removal from the
nursery much of its root system;,
therefore, the top should be cut away
until it corresponds somewhat with
the lessened root supply. When set?
ting the . tree, don't forget to trim
away all dead or broken roots.
