A Jbovlng Tribute to Marie Tompkins
Just i few short summers ago, Edge
field's heart was attuned to tho love
story of a sweet girl-bride. Kdgetleld's
heart was touched thut the marriage
of two loved young peoplo, Marie
Tompkins and Clus Merrlmon, should
be saddened by the death of a devotod
srandmotber. Interest centered in tho
new borne of the young couple In
Sumter. Ws knew that In her new
home, the sweet personality of our
friend would win for her friendship
and love. What a fair picture our lit?
tle friend mude with her cheruh boy
In her arms?that beautiful baby boy
whose short life was such a bright
chapter In the lives of two such de?
voted families. Perhaps the going of
this little child hastened the end of
the young mother. Her thoughts were
ever of her angel child. The deep,
brooding motherhood look was ever
in her eyes, tinging even her smiles
with sadness. What a beautiful, con?
soling thought it is that somewhere
on the shores of Eternity these spir?
its thst on earth were so closely
bound together are reunited. For we
cannot help but believe that loved
enss here are loved ones there for
To the young husband, to the moth?
er and father and sisters and broth
era, who once before have given up
a loved sister, to the many others who
mourn the passing of this dear one,
we offer a deep sympathy. Only five
years ago a June bride?and now
June has maiked the closing of her
"Of all the thoughts of God that are,
Bourne Inward unto souls afar,
Along the .Psalmist's music deep,
Now tell me If that any is,
For gift or grace, surpassing this?

The State convention of the P.enev
olent Order of Elks hus concluded its
third annual session In this city. Tho
gathering here of these Jolly fellows
from all parts of tho State will be a
great advertisement for Anderson.
Not only was everything done for their
reception and entertainment, but they
were made to feel very much at home
by the cltlsens generally. There \va
nothing to mar the pleasure of the
convention and tho style of fun which
some Indulged In might havo appear?
ed a little like horse-play or like
child's play to some of the grown?
ups, but after all. there was no mis?
chief In the*o men. The stunts pull?
ed off were good naturod Imitations
of some that the Shrlner* amused
themselves with In Atlanta.
The visitors were an.uzed to llnd
Anderson as big, as suostantiut and
as progressive u eity as it is.
There Is In the organization of
F.Iks the potentiality for doing great
good in the way of hcnc\o|cnco and
charity. The Klks do s great deal of I
charity thut Is known only to them
selves. Tho tenets of their order arc
not given tu the world, but It Is ob?
served among other things that they
sre taught to feel a deep reveieie e
for the Mag of their country, that tin \
have a regard, approaching affection
for each other, and lor tho world at
large they have a consideration that
Anderson is glad to have had the
Elks of the State here, through their |
representatives, ami the people of An-1
demon in saying good-bye to the e
Jolly, good fellows, would suggest to
them to keep ever forward their dec
laratlon to make (ho world a bettet
place In which to live; to make
smoother tbe pathway of those whose
lives are lacking in happiness and in
chfer. Th*re is much to be done
to mike tb. old world brighter and
happier, and It n.-.sl be done through
organizations of one kind and an?
At the same time happiness is not
mcrel> pl? a^ure. and there is more in
the world than merely exl-^ng tu get
the phantom of frivolity when the
substance of whole-souled joy may

Observer Doos not Believe In State
Constables Being Kept with Cam?
If Mayor I* D. Jennings, of Sum?
ter, ordered two or three mmbers of
the Sumter police force to accompany
him on the campaign to 'protect' him
and required the treasury of the
Greater Gamecock City to pay the
salaries and the traveling expenses of
tho Sumter policemen, what would
tho taxpayers of Sumter do to the
Hon. I? I). Jennings?" asked a Sum?
ter citizen yesterday.
"But," continued this inquisitive
Sumtcrite, and Sumterites are very
often very inquisite, "wouldn't tho
mayor of Sumter be as fully justified
in using tho Sumter guardians of the
peaco to go around South Carolina
for tho purpose of preventing free
speech, and Intimidating; or trying to
intimidate his three opponents and
the Democratic voters as the governor
of South Carolina has and at pub?
lic expense too?"
"Oh, well that may be true
enough" said another Sumterite, but
you know our Sumter mayor 'Dang'
Jennings ain't built that way, he is
not scared of anybody and all the
State constables put together can't
bluff Jennings out of saying what ho
starts out to say."
"And another thing," put in an?
other Sumterite, because Sumterites
must and will talk, they got to get it
out of their systems this hot weather
you know, "the mayor of Sumter
has no political, personal, or official
record that needs shot gun or pistol
pro?eetlon to keep it under cover, and
Jennings' record, personally, officially,
and politically will stand the sunlight
and not fado or decompose, and he
doesn't have to carry the Sumter
health officer or police force around
with him and furnish them with dis?
infectants and pistols to keep his rec?
ord from being a stench in the nos?
trils of people, don't you know.
Jennings and his record require no
police, constabulary or other 'protec?
tion.' Both will stand sanitary or
other kinds of inspection alright."
Pretty hot stuff to hand out with
the mercury flying high as it is.
MAN LOST IN WHEAT FIELD.
Grain so Tall That Farmer Nearly
Starved Before lie Got Out.
La iCrosse, WU, June 18,?Lost
in a 1,200 acre wheat held, w rh the
wheat extending above his head so
that he could not get ni-* bearings.
Daniel Ernl, a Puch county farmer,
wandered all afternoon and far into
the night btfuYI bis shouts for help
brought him relief.
Tho story was brought to La Crosse
today by Frank Wesley a ranchman
of Kuch county. He expluined that
the wheat stands more than live feet
tall and it Is easy for a man to lose
himself in a field.
"Ernl is not a very tall man, and
the wheat extended abovo his head,"
said Wesley. "He lives in Bison and
drove out into the country to take
a look at his wheat. Leaving the
car at tho side of tho road he enter?
ed tho wheat, penetrating some dis?
tance, closely looking for traces of
Hessian fly or rust. He wandered all
afternoon, going in what he thought
was a straight line expecting to strike
tho opposite sldo of the Held, but he
evidently was moving in circles. Tho
darkness came and he was still in the
denseness of tho wheat This partic?
ular held Included nearly 1,200 acres
ami adjoined other fields not separat?
ed by fences, so a man could go for
miles without leaving the wheat thlek
"It was ghont 1? o'clock at night
that his car was discovered and
searohers went into tho wheat sus?
pecting that someone was lost. They
hoard tho faint cries of tho almost ex?
hausted man and finally discovered
him."? Kansas City Star.

Tomato Club Notes
TO TOMATO CLUB MEMBERS.
Some of the Insect Pests Which In?
jure Tomatoes and How to Eight
Xo. 6110?To Canning Club Members:
In letter Xo. 629 we told you
some things to do to prevent disease
amon?; your tomato plants. At the
same t ime that you try to prevent dis?
ease, t will be necessary to look out
for insect pests which may do great
harm in a short time. Then, too, you
can light the two at the same time.
For these reasons, the instructions in
this letter should be read and used
with Xo. 629.
The lirst insect you may have trou?
ble with will probably be one of the
variois cut worms which will cut
down plants as soon as set out. A
good :*emedy is poisoned bait placed
so as to kill these worms before trans?
planting. Have nothing green grow?
ing on the plat for about two weeks
before transplanting. Then dip col
lard, Of cabbage leaves, bunches of
clover or weeds into a solution of
Paris <reen made by mixing one table -
spoonful of Paris green in a bucket
of water. Scatter these over the plat
in the evening for two or three days
before transplanting. Remember
that Paris green is a poison and must
be handled carefully. Another poison
which can be used as a bait after the
plants are set out Is a mash made by
mixing one peck bran and two cups
molasses with ono ounce, two table
spoonfuls, of Paris green and enough
water to moisten the mixture. Cotton}
seed meal may be used insead of bran, j
taking one quart of meal to one table* j
spoonful of Paris green. This is
placed in small baits near the plants
and may be kept moist under a bit
Of earth to protect from the sun. Do j
not allow chickens or other animals to
eat this poison mash. Another way J
to protect plants from cut worms
which you may have tried is to wrap
each plant when transplating with aj
bit of paper which extends about i
one inch above and one inch below
the surface of the ground.
Another insect which may attack j
your plants in the cold frame or soon;
after transplanting, is the tlea-beetle,
a tiny black jumping beetle which j
feeds upon the tissue of the leaf.!
Bordeiux mixture which we advised
for spraying to prevent disease, will J
also have some injurious effect upon
the tlea-beetle, but to dispose of it
and other injurious biting insects, it
will be safest to add to the Bordeaux
mixtu:o either Paris green or arse
nate of lead. For each 10 gallons of
Bordeaux, add 2 ounces of Paris green,
or 10 ounces of arsenate of lead. Keep
the rritxure well stirred while using.
It is necessary to use a spray pump]
for applying this because unless it is'
applied in a mist-like spray which
coats the leaves thoroughly, it will
not d > good. If Paris green is used
without the Bordeaux, 4 ounces quick
limo to 10 gallons wliter must be used
to keep the Paris green from burning
Arsenate of lead is thought to he
better than Paris green for such use.
Although it costs a little more, It is
really cheaper, because it gives better
protection, is not so likely to burn the
foliage, and sticks to the leaves bet?
ter, making fewer applications neces?
sary. Two applications of arsenate
of |egd will equal four or five of Paris
green Arsenate of lead solution can
also be made with less (are.
The potato-beetle sometimes at?
tacks tomato plants, but can be con
trolled by the spraying or by jarring
the beetles into a vessel and destroy?
The tomato horn worm eats the
leaves of the plants and can easily
be found. Hand picking and killing
is the best way to get rid of thom.
This large green caterpillar is the
larva of one of the sphinx moths, a
beautiful creature which I hope you
may sometime see tutting through
your garden at dusk and getting nec?
tar from tubular Mowers with its long
beak. This moth lays the eggs which
produce these horned caterpillars.
You may also lind the pupa or winter
stago of this inseet which will live in
the ground in a brown ease having its
long beak curved over its body like
the handle of a jar.
Another caterpillar which will give
trouble is the "fruit worm" which
bores into the tomato. In its differ?
ent generations this same caterpillar
lives as the cotton bolt worm, and
the bud worm of corn. It likes these
plants better than the tomato. The
fruit worm may be worse if the to?
matoes are planted near old cotton or
corn fields. Since the moth of this
species lays about BOO eggs and there
aro tWO, three, or more generations
in one season, you will see the advan?
tage of picking off and destroying
these worms. Rick off the small to?
matoes SS soon is infected and either
feed them to the hogs or bury them
deep in the ground Spraying with
one of the arsenlcala mentioned above
I Will blip keep this worm out of the
fruit. Three weeks or more before
fruit ripens .arsenate of lead may be
used. Within one week of ripening,
if spray is needed, use Paris green
which can be more easily washed off
the tomato than can the arsenate of
If you have other crops than to?
matoes on your tenth acre it is well to
know that all insects which can be
reached can be poisoned in one of
two ways, depending upon their
habits. Insects which bite and ac?
tually eat the tissue of plants can
be killed by the use of arsenic poisons
suggested in this letter because they
eat the poisoned food. Many insects
injure plants by sucking their juices
as do bugs and plant lice. These have
to be killed by external poisons which
come into contact with their bodies
usually closing their breathing pore.1;,
and killing them. Soap preparations
and kerosene emulsions are used to
destroy this class of insects. These
preparations must be made with care.
Instructions will be sent to any who
inquire for them.
