peared above tho horison. Tho tret-s
were shipped to the delivery points
in the fall but many persons, and
they are not confined to farmers
either, had no funis with which to
pay for the trees. Many of the trees
haute be delivered on creditor
sold to other persons at a discount,
leaving the agent who solicited the
order without any profit.

the Edgefield association 19 years

Mr. Littlejohn is pastor of Red
Hill, Republican, Rehoboth, An
tioch and Gilgal. He also preaches
one Sunday afternoon in each month
at Peace Haven Sunday school
building at Colliers. This faithful
servant is really doing the work of
two men.
Help the Red Cross.
The following letter is self-ex
planatory and will make clear to
those who read in just what way
the Daughters of the Revolution
are expected to contribute in the
present war crisis. All contributions
are to be in cash, and distinctively
for the Red Cross. This does not in
any way conflict with the fund for
the Belgian sufferers, which is an
equally as worthy cause, but gives
the national D. A. R. an explicit
channel for their gifts under the
direction of the government of the
United States. All contributions
may be banded to Mrs. IK B. liol
lingsworth local treasurer. The
people at large, as well as the D.
A. R. are asked
to contribute to this fund.
'My dear fellow members: Real
izing that every member of the na- i
tiona! society, Daughters of the
American Revolution, is eager to do
all in her power to alleviate the ter
rible suffering caused by the hor
rors of war, and also to show her
patriotism in carrying out the wish
es of the president of the United
States at this crisis, I wrote to him
asking bow the resources of the so
ciety might be best applied. I have
thisday a io personal interview with
the president ascertained that in hin
estimation the Red Cross, the gov
ernment's authorized chaim?!, will
be the most effective medium
through which the Daughters of the
American Revolution can best serve
humanity. I am therefore calling
upon you, my dear Daughters, to
show by your deeds tba* we are
worthy of our ancestors, and of the
confidence expressed by the presi
dent of the United States in our

consider herself the chairman of

Mrs. Joseph E. Ransdell, Memorial j
Continental Hall, Washington, D.

A Thanksgiving Thought.
Though war in Europe has hurt
us somewhat financially, how pro
foundly thankful we should be that
we are spared from the bloodshed,
pillage, ruin and heartbreak that
have blighted countless thousands
of homes in Europe. How grate
ful we should be that not one soul
here faces the starvation which
menaces thousands there.
Even in the matter of financial
gains we should count ourselves
blessed. The fact in a nutshell is
that a long series. of fat yearn, to
gether with more diversified farm
ing, have enabled our farmers to
hold cotton for better price?, and
this holding bas now forced cotton
up from five and six-cent figures,
until actual a notations show it is
today only a cent,and a half lower
than three years ago. Three years
ago this week The Progressive Far
mer quoted middling at 8 5-8 cents
a pound, while as we write this the
same market pays 7 1-8 cents-ex
actly within 1 1-2 cents of 1911
prices, while our crop may be as
big as then.
Let us thank God and take
Do Not Mind Small Fines.
It is a mockery to impose small
fines upon convicted blind tigers.
Convictions are hard io secure and
men will run the risk of conviction
and continue in the nefarious busi
ness of violating the law so long aa
they know that the worst they have"
to fear is the payment of a fine or
I two, whose amount is less than they;
will gladly pay to be licensed ta
sell alcoholic drinks. But, -when'
there is a certainty that conviction
will mean a sentence to wear stripes!
and stay in jail or work* on the
roads, the number of blind tigers
will suddenly and markedly de-,
crease.-Greenville Piedmont.

m America's Greatest Grass
Comes From Africa
The most wonderful grass of the age, introduced and endorsed
by the U. S. Agricultural Department Tested severely by the
farmers in all parts of Texas successfully. Makes more seed and
better hay than any other forage plant known. Under ordinary
circumstances produces 300 to 600 pounds of seed and three to six
tons of choice hay per acre the same season. Adapted to all sorts
of soil. Resists severest drought and does well in wet weather.
Takes two to four pounds of seed to an acre in drills, and sixteen
to twenty-four pounds broadcast Equals timothy in quality of
hay, and all kinds of live stock prefers it to alfalfa. Last spring
the seed sold for $2.00 to $4.00 per pound, and all who grew it
then will sow more next year. It is now selling for $1.00 per
pound, and will go higher before next spring, as the supply is lim
ited. We will send pure Sudan seed, prepaid by parcel post, for
$1.00 per pound, in lots.of fifty pounds and under, not less than
one pound considered. Larger lots by freight cheaper. Better
send for seed now and be sure of getting it and save money, and
then make more money next season. Every one who can should
try this great grass. Address

Box 15. Texas.
