final orders as to who will compose ,

From Red Oak Grove-Red Hill
section Mises Kathleen Kenrick Ma

tian young women will make wide
inroads in the ranks of Sunday
school and church workers of their

compensation will come by way of
their being better equipped for their
work after spending a session or
more in a Christian college, such as
Limestone deserves to be called.

This is necessary in order for me to
fulfill my duties on the Board of
Examiners in optometry, of which I
am a member. I regret the neces
sity of being out so much during
the month, but as it is absolutely
un?voidable I shall ask my friends
to kindly bear with me, as I shall do
my best to attend to matters on my
return as quickly as possible.

Crop-Local Dealers Prais
ed By Atlanta Official
One of the most important announce
ments we've hud the ?cod luck to make
to the farmers of tiiis county in a good
many years is just this: the Jobson
System of common sense farming is
coming to tiiis county-and coming to
stay. What this means in the way
of a crop increase ne::t year will be
perfectly plain even before thc next
crop is gathered, for good healthy corn
and oats and grass ?on't walt till the
harvest tc let you know when it's been
Too much can't bc said for this sys
tem and John B. Jobscn's remarkable
plow which has already done so much
for other sections of the South. To
sum it up briefly, this plow cheapens
the process of deep tilling and p:aces
the benefits of the most improved
methods within the reach of the "one
boss" farmer as well as the big
Realizing this, a number of the best
and most progressive merchants in our
county have gone into the work of
securing these plows and giving out
information about the Jobson methods.
These gentlemen are well known and
their interest in br.nging this benefit
to the communities they serve will be
appreciated by every man, woman and
child who realizes just what this thing
is going to mean to us.
Referring to our local agencies, Maj.
Jno. W. Norwood, manager of the At
lanta office of the Jobson Plow Co.,
said, a few days ago:
"These men are a credit to this
section. They're the only kind of
agents we appoint, because we must
have men with broad ideas of service.
Officials and members of Boards of
Trade in other section? are becoming
enthusiastic over the Jobson System
and are helping to spread it among
their people, and you have hore just
as patriotic men and women as may
be found on the face of the earth.
"Selling a few plows is not the b's
idea about our work," he continuer'..
"The Big Idea is that of bringing tho
gospel of deep plowing and simple '
and better paying methods to tho
great mass cf farmers who h H ve nn
been able to see its practicabiiity nw)
have not had the means to purchase
expensive outfits We and these deal
ers in your county are 'doing cut hit"
and we're going to do a big thing righf
here in the matter of crcp increase."
Among other things, the Jcbson
agents mentioned below are giving out
free to all who call for them, copier;
of the little booklet entitled "The Com
mon Sense of Deep Plowing and Big
ger Profits on the Farm." This con
tains full particulars of the famous
Jobson S)\stem and has more good,
hard common sense about plowing in
it than anything that's been publish
ed since <he Civil war.
The State Commissioner of Agricul
ture. Hon. James -D. Price, of Georgia,
said this about tho hook: "1 wish
every former in Georgia would get a
copy and read it." It has also been
commended by as high authority as
Hon. F. J. Merriam, editor cf the
Southern Ruralist, and writer for at
least a million Southern farmers.
These agencies also give out copier,
of the new farm paoer published by
the System. They^cnn ho had frooly
for tho asking, hut'none will be given
away to those who do not ask.
Following aro Jobson 1 System
agents in this county to whom tho
Atlanta official was referring, and
who are glad to serve tho poople with
full and complete information:
W. L. Dunovant, Edgefield; V.
E. Edwards ct .Bros., Johnston;
Trenton Fertilizer Co., Trenton;
Middleton ct Rich, Meriwether; ,1.
W. Blacknell ct Son, Plum Cranch;
T. Garrett Talbert, Parksville.
For the county of Spartanburg,
alone, there are actually 21 Jobson
agencies, and it is understood that
there are many other firms in Edge
field county who have applied, and
will no doubt be enrolled.

Astonishing Gasoline Records
With the New Briscoe
OWNERS report unusual records made by the new Brisco on coun
try roads-in gasoline economy, bill climbing and speed work.
Recently a Briscoe stock car averaged 39.2 miles to a gallon of gasoline
on a 172.2 mile run between Dallas and Mineral Wells. Texas. The Half
Million Dollar Motor gives inexhaustible power with unusual economy
non-expert drivers get 25 to 30 miles to the gallon.
This powerful Briscoe picks up speed in high gear on hard hills. It has
made great records in severe mountain work in California-has been
driven through snow up to the body and traversed routes and grades
The New Briscoe is the ideal-country car in every respect-is balanced,
sturdy and extra-roomy for five big passengers. If you are six feet tall
you can stretch full length in front or rear seats.
