Congregation Does Honor to the Memory ot Deceased Pastor. A large congregation was pres ent Sunday afternoon at the First Presbyterian church, to witness the oeremonies incident to the un veiling and presentation of the tablet in memory of the late Rev. J. Rumple. The tablet, which is the gift of the ladies of the con gregation, is made of bronze and bears this inscription: “This tablet placed by the la dies of the congregation in loving remembrance of Rev. Jethro Rum ple, D. D , born M .rch 10, 1827, installed pastor of this church November 24, 1860, after a faith ful service of over forty-five years, died January 20, 1906. Servant of God, well d >ne! Rest from thy loved employ, The battle fought, the victory won, Enter thy Master’s joy.” The tablet was unveiled by Miss Janie Dickson Vardell, a granddaughter of Dr, Rumple, after which Rev. J, M. Wharey made an address, presenting the tablet on behalf of the ladies of the congregation. He referred io a touching manner to the life work of Dr. Rumple, his influence upon his people and the commu nity at large, and exhorted his hearers to keep fresh in their minds his teaching and the exam ple of his holy, consecrated life. Hon. Theo. F. Kluttz accepted the tablet for the church. He made a brief address in eulogy of the deceased pastor, in whose hon or the services were being held, and concluded his remarks by saying: “May it be the prayer of all, ‘let me die the death of the righteous, aud my last end be like his,’” -- Residence Burned. The home of Frank Poole, who lives at Trading Ford, was de stroyed by fire on the afternoon of Wednesday last. With the ex ception of a few pieces of furni ture which were saved by the neighbors, the household goods of Mr, Poole were lost in the fire. The origin of the fire has not been learned. The family was away from home when the building waH burned and they have no idea how the fire started. The lost will be about $1,000. -• m Another Store Hobbery. The store of the Belk-Harry Company was entered by a theif or thieves on Wednesday night of last week. A couple of dollars in change was taken from the cash drawer, but nothing else was taken so far as known. It is believed the thief concealed himself in the store before it was closed for the night, as he went out by the rear door when ready to leave. This is the second time within the past few weeks that the store has been entered. -• — Child Burned. Esther, the little daughter of Mr and Mrs. J S. Lane, was pain fully burned last- Wedneeday af ternoon. While standing in front of a hot stove her dres caught fire. Fortunately Mrs. Lane was near by and she at once wrapped a quilt around her daughter’s b >dy and extinguished th" 11 unes. The child’s injuries were not of a se rious nature. The friends of J. B. Isenhour will much regret to learn that his ■visit to Salt Lake City has not improved his health, indeed, he is said to be some worse than when he left here. He may probably return to Salisbu’y soon. -- Rheumatic Pains Relieved. B. F.

FERTILIZING THE CMP; __ > The primary object In using fertilizer ') to produce a larger yield of the crop ~iat is to be immediately grown, or is 1 ready growing, on the land to which ae fertilizer is to be applied. As a rule, contains from ten to sixteen per cent. i more or less promptly available plant od. In other words, a commercial fer ..zer contains in every hundred pounds ght from 10 to 16 pounds of available .csphoric acid,’ either alone, or that -louut of phosphoric acid and potash ■ mbined, or of these two and nitrogen rnbiiied, making in the latter case, what called a “complete” fertilizer. Now, is 10 to 16 pounds in each 100 pounds the fertilizer is supposed to be, and lould be, practically soluble and avail >le at once, or within a week or two, r the use of the crop, says Virginia lrolina Fertilizer Almanac. The remaining portion of the fertilizer, r the 84 to 90 pounds in each 100 pounds, ; a mixture of insoluble phosphate and sulphate of lime, some sand, water, or ganic matter and other things that are necessarily incident to the manufacture, and cannot be economically removed They are of very little immediate value 0 either the crop or the soil. So when we apply a high-grade fertil izer to the soil the object is to supply he plants with soluble plant food and increase the yield of the cotton, grain, rrass. or whatever the crop may be. Incidentally, however, this fertilizer does help the land, because it induces a larger rrowth of stalk, roots and foliage of the lants—or those parts that will be re urned to, and become part of the soil. 1 dose of this fertilizer, for instance, ot only increases the yield of seed cot jn, but also the size of the stalks, he foliage, hulls and other parts that o immediately back and form a part of the soil in the shape of humus (decayed ■cgetable matter). But the principal way ■ » improve the soil itself, is to add vege table matter to it in the form of stable manure, renovating crops, rotation of tops, etc., in a more direct manner. It vft uld seem manifest, then, If we wish *o increase the yield of corn, cotton, vbeat. oats, grass, etc., that the fertilizer hould contain the three "elements” of lant food in the proportions that are est suited, to the particular crop. This s particularly true if the purpose is to sc liberal amounts of fertilizer per acre, a such case the deficient supply, in the natural soil, of any one or more of the hree “valuable” elements (phosphoric icid, nitrogen and potash) need not be specially considered. According to carefully conducted field experiments, conducted at many of the experiment stations, it has been found that cotton requires a fertilizer that con tains about one part each of nitrogen and potash and 3 1-3 parts of available phos phoric acid. This demand would be met by a fertilizer containing 10 per cent, available phosphoric acid, 3 per cent, of nitrogen and 3 per cent, of potash; or, as ordinarily expressed, a 10—3—3 fertilizer. One analyzing 9—2.70—1.70; or 8—2.40—2.40; or 7—2.10—2.10, etc., would answer just as ProJ'lded these lower grades be ap? piled In heavier quantities. < So it has been found that corn, sugar £^J,0r8hiUm:v.§rrasaes and other crops f*n8 riLn?® graas family respond best to a fertilizer that shall contain 10 parts of phosphoric acid, 5 parts of nitro gen an*! 2 parts of potash— or a 10—6—2 fertilizer. The following formulas are in precisely the same proportions, only they are of lower grade", and would give practically the same results only when a correspondingly larger application shall be made per acre—viz., 9—4.50—1.80: or 8—4.00—1.60; or 7—3.50—1.40, and so on Of course, these lower grades can be sold at lower prices than the high grades; but, as a rule, the farmer will find it more economical to buy the high grades both on account of their cheaper price per unit” and also the saving of freight the latter being precisely the same, per ton, for both high and low grades. APPLYING FERTILIZER WHEN PLANTING. While it is certainly true, in our ex perience, that the greater part of the fer tilizer should be applied about two weeks before the crop is to be planted, well m*xed in the soil of the bedding furrow ??d bedded on, there are circumstances that would justify a farmer in making one or more intercultural applications, including one at the actual date of plant ing. The following are such circumstan ces: (1) When a farmer has not been ablo to secure the whole amount of his fer tilizers before planting time. <2) When he concludes, after his crop has been planted and is growing, that he did not buy and apply as much as he should have done before planting. (3) When the yellowish green color and ■want of vigor in the appearance of the plants Indicate that more nitrogen is needed by the crop. We believe it may be safely accepted as a general rule that a small portion of Virginia-Carolina Fertilizer should be applied with, or near the seed, at the time of planting. The effect of this small application is to supply the young plants with available food during the first stage of their growth, inducing prompt and vigorous development. For this purpose 40 to 50 pounds per acre may be applied of the same fertilizer that had been bed ded on two weeks before planting. A second application of high-grade fer tilizers may be made at the second i . third plowing of cotton, or at six or eight inches height of the plants up to 18 Indi es, or the middle to last of May, and the middle to last of June. The intercultural applications may l.e made in the siding furrow, or the fot tilizer may be strewn along in the middl. s ahead of the plow or cultivator. There is no need to fear that the plants will pot get the benefit of a high-grade fer tilizer if put anyhere, on or between the rows. June 26th is the latest date at whijh the writer has ever applied fer tilizer. in this way to either corn or cot ton, although there is little reason! to doubt that even later applications would benefit the crop; but probably not enough to pay the cost of the fertilizer. | NEW SPRING G0OBS ] j BELK-MARRY CO.’S. | 5 Our buyers are just back from a two week’s trip in the ft ft northern markets searching for Bargains.
