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
Residence Burned.
The home of Frank Poole, who
lives at Trading Ford, was de

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

Another Store Hobbery.
The store of the Belk-Harry

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

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.
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
(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.
