.Notable Meeting of Presbyterians
of South Carolina to he Held
Next Month.
I Chester, Sept. 21.?The synod of
the Presbyterian church of Sovjh
Carolina will convene at Purity Pres(
byterian church in Chester Tuesday,
& October 3, and will remain in session
through Friday, October 6.
This promises to be a notable
meeting of the Presbyterian ministers
and elders of South Carolina
:":d frVa 200 to 225 are expected.
A number of matters of interest to
the church will be discussed and!
. , I
^cted upon.
The fiev. W. 21 Hudson, D. D.,
one of the Southern Presbyterian
church's most distinguished missionaries
to China, who has been in America
for over a year and was honored
by being: made moderator at]
Greenville, last October when the J
?:ynod convened in that city, hast
jjst returned to his field in China to,
resume his activities. He had hoped j
to preside at the synod in Chester,:
but the urgency of the call was so,
imperative to return to the great ac-j
tivities that he has underway in j
China that he felt he would have to j
forego the pleasure and honor of j
. presiding at the synod and return, j
which he did a few days ago, leaving
his family at Columbia, where sever.al
of the children will attend school.
In Dr. Hudson's absence the Rev.
James B. Green, D. D., of the chair
.rtf tVionlnonr of t.Tip fJolumbLa semi
nary of Columbia will deliver the
^opening sermon at the synod.
Of striking interest at this synod j
-will be the attention that will be
^iven to the discussions of popular
meetings for home and foreign missions.
One of the outstanding speeches
t.o be delivered at the synod will be
that of Dr. Egbert W. Smith, one
of the most eloquent men in the
.Southern Presbyterian church, who
will deliver an address on the Afri,*an
mission field, from which he has
just returned from an extended visit.
The Rev. Thomas H. Law, D. D.,
of Spartanburg, stated clerk and
. 'easurer of the synod, recently underwent
a serious operation. However,
he has sufficiently recovered
and his many friends will be glad to
know he will be able to attend the
synod in his official capacity.
The permanent clerk is the Rev.
H. Waddell Pratt, D. D., of Colum
bia. The members of Purity church
are looking forward with much
pleasure to entertaining the synod
and is making elaborate preparations
for making the visit of the synod
to Chester one of the best it has
ever held. Homes have been provided
for all the delegates.
Drinks Whiskey Only When Suffering
An Attack
Greenwood, Sept. 23.?Using as a
nlea in his defense that the pint of
liquor found in a bureau drawer in
*Tis place of residence was kept only
for use during attacks of asthma, W.
3. Williams, a white man, appeared
m his own behalf in County Court
here, when arraigned for violation
of the prohibition laws. A jury of
his peers promptly returned a ver
diet of not guilty, after having been
allowed to smell the pint bottle of
evidence. Six other pints of liquor
were found in the old man's potato
patch and produced in court, but
::~?erted that he knew nothing of
their origin. He explained the presence
of fruit jars smelling of liquor
rr>d found in his residence by saying
that he found them by the roadside
and brought them home, intending
to can beans in them. Since the verdict
of not guilty, prohibition officers
declare that they are fearful of
other outbreaks of asthma.
Fiie which is supposed to have
caught from the furnace, destroyed
the laundry at the De la Howe State
School last Friday night Nearly all
of a lie S"> children in this school
suffered the loss of some cloth'ng
>n the fire, some losing practically
all of their clothing. When the fire
at its heighth the boiler exploded
and went high into the air, comng
to the ground some distance away.
No one was injured, and none
acJ the nearby buildings were in
great danger.?McCormick Messen

j tide written by him telling how he
>rs ':ls able to contro1 the pest that
thr?-itens the welfare of the world:
j J "In November 1921 I ripped up
D' -nv cotton stalks with a two horse
D. '
. plow. Then I raked them up with a
iss i
q mower rake and burned them up. In
December I turned the land with a
'two horse turn plow.
dJ It rained so much during the winofIter
months I didn't get to plow until
j March. Being so late I disc-harrowed
jit. Then laid it off deep with a middle-buster
and just before planting
ie' :irug the beds down with a drag
j harrow in order to resemble an old
J bed.
! I began planting the first of April.
;Had a distributor run just in front
?r i
_ i of the planter.
jj. | When the seeds began to sprout
j) i narrowed witn a ur<ig iwnuw.
The 15th of May I began to chop
The 18th of May I began to hunt
irs the boll weevils, finding them in the
n(j buds. By the 6th of June we had
je> found 6176 boll weevils with myself,
]e> my wife and three little girls huntling.
Each one was paid twenty cents
ge per hundred. By the 18th of June we
^'jhad found 7872 boll weevils, excus'
j ing what we had walked across in
the field and killed instant. I know
we didn't kill less than 300. We
dropped them into bottles of kerosene.
! As soon as I got through chopping
^ ^ ^ 1 i
cotton I began*to run my cultivator,
ooj dirting with small wings.
Center furrowing after each plowi
the second dirting I began
ar~ to bunch the cotton. Nothing scarce
jn"jly to do with the hoes. Plowing once
land twice a week.
s aj At this time the cotton began to
^ be too large to find the boll weevils
an easily.
inff The 8th of June I began to use
0I"k the calcium arsenate poison which 1
ver made a solution of one gallon ol
black molasses, one gallon of watei
?e" to three pounds of poison.
lias i would mop the cotton once a
the Week. The next day after the cotton
ins was mopped the poison would lool
lay white like it was put on in powdered
>s | orm. As soon as I would get ovei
cu^ mopping with poison I would pick up
.squares in baskets and sacks and
be- bury in a large mire.
ingj I continued to mop until the last
Hie of June. At this time the cotton had
'n?:so many large limbs until it was too
much trouble to mop, so I made me
up- isveral little sacks out of cheese
er. cloth which I attached to a forked
-nt stick. Then we began to dust soon
Ic- and late while the dew was on. lOA
iad we had to do was to shake the stick
er. uid the poison would fly.
for I stopped dusting about the loth
ick of July, and picked up squares and
bolls until the last of July.
tva I used about fourteen gallons of
ns, >nck molasses, about 60 pounds of
calcium arsenate and about 150 lbs.
sen fertilizer per acre, 8-3-3, no side
ast dressing at all.
>ad By the second day of September
( had picked one bale of cotton, and
Ln- by the 13th had picked three bales.
