1 The Story of
Our States
THE second
state to
adopt tho Con
stitution was
P ennsylvanln.
Its area of
40,120 square
miles is larger
than the combined Now Eng
land states, except Maine, with
Now Jersey thrown lu for good
measure. Its name means
"Penn's Woodland" aud was so
named by King Charles II, who
grunted this territory to the
Q u a k e r, William Penn, and
named lt In commemoration of
Penn's father, who had been a
distinguished admiral aud on
terms of peculiar friendship and
Intimacy with the royal family.
This grant was made in lieu of
?10,000, which the klug owed Ad
miral Penn. On this basis lt
originally cost about (2 a square
Pennsylvania has assumed
such an Important place among
the states that lt 1B often called
the Keystone state. This term
was probably derived originally
because her name was carved
on thc keystone of the bridge
over Rock creek, between Wash
ington and Georgetown. Later on
lt was applied on account of the
great Importance of the state in
national elections. Its delega
tion to congress totals 38, sec
ond only In size to that from
New York, and Pennsylvania
accordingly has 38 presidential
electors. "?
Winiam Penn first came over
to America In 1682. The follow
ing year he laid out the city of
Philadelphia, or "Brotherly
Love," which was named after
a biblical city In Asia Minor. As
Pennsylvania waa the only col
ony without a seacoast, Penn
obtained from the duke of York
the control of Delaware, and un
til the Revolution these two
provinces were under tho same
proprietary government. Quar
rels with Maryland over bound
aries caused a formal survey
to be made by two surveyors,
Mason and Dixon, and lt was
this which became famous dur
ing the Civil war as the Muson
and Dixon lino, the dividing
mark between the slave and the
free states.
(@ by McClur* N?wap*ptr 3yn<Moate.)
Just before thc cotton acreage of
the South ls definitely decided upon
by tho planters, the Cotton Associa
tion is making the last strenuous
efforts to impress upon the planters
the importance- the absolute neces
sity- for a marked reduction of the
normal acreage, lt does not seem to
tts that there should he any appeal
necessary to the accomplishment of
reduced colton acreage. The situa
tion at present is so acute, the pros
pect for the future so dark as re
gards tho price of cotton, that lt
would seem that no man could see
anything but injury to ????. cotton
farmer's cause through another big
crop of cot ton.
We hear continually, the statement
made by fanners that "we are not
going to reduce- acreage so much,
but WO are going to cut the crop
down by not using as much fertilizer
as usual. The folly of such a course,
as we view lt, is so stupendous aa to
leave bollef that any one will follow
the plan impossible. Think of it
omitting to uso tho proper amount
of fertilizer to make a good crop in
ordor to reduce tho size of the crop,
and wasting valuable time and labor
in planting and cultivating a large
acreage. Why not bo sonalble about
lt? If you aro going to plant ton
acres to. cotton and use fertilizer
su?rtclont only for five acres, are you
not laying up for- yourself the hard
work incldout to the cultivation of
tho excess five acres, the picking and
all other labor incident to raising a
cotton crop?
Lot us bo reasonable.' Cut ' tho
acreage In cotton, and what cotton
ls planted, let it bo done with tho
Idea of making tho crop as cheaply
as possible. Labor isxono of the big
items of expense in making a cotton
crop. Thorofore, if wo plant ten acres
of cotton In the hope of making, say,
six bales of cotton, lt will Inevitably
be an expensive crop-a crop on
which one can figure loss long before
the crop ls picked. But if that acre
age be cut to five Instead of ten
acres, and tho samo amount of fer
tilizer used that would he put upon
tho tetlxtores, the crop will cortalnly
make live bales, and there will be
no greater fertilizer bill to pay than
for tho ten acros proposed, half fer
tilized. And the labor bill, or the
labor expenditure if all tho work is
done by tho planter, will be cut In
half. That ls the way we look at the
situation. It ls folly not to reduce
acroage this year; It ls tho height of
folly to reduce production by cutting
down tho yield per acre.
Wo often hear about the over-,
worked farmer. Don't add to your
burden of labor by decreasing your
por aero yield. Thc more you make
on one acre the less you have to I
labor to make lt, and the less ex
pense to make lt. The farmer who ls
worked to death and makes nothing
ia tho one who tries to cultivate tho
universe, skimps his fertilizer, and
in trying to make something by this
false method of economy, literally
does work himself to death.
Cut your cotton acreage and put
In some food crop. And at least, for
tho sake of your family If not for |
your own sake, make enough stuff,
to carry your stock through next i
winter, and sufficient grain and meat !
to insure you not having to trot to |
town every few days to buy rations, i
H?tions-provisions-ought to go in
a constant stream from the farms to
the towns, but the reverse in tho
South ls the case. And we wonder
why we are not prosperous.
Tho year 1021 is going to tell a!
wonderful story for the Southern i
farmer. V\ e do not know what that
story is going to be like, but It Is
going to recount success or failure- |
maybe some of both. The farmer ;
who again puts all his energy to the '
production of cotton ls going to be
a failure, and maybe "go broke." j
Tho man who plants a little cotton I
! and raises a lot of corn, hay, etc.,!
and plenty of good, nourishing vege
tables and cereals for use during the
summer and for putting away for
family use In tho winter, ls going to
at least live comfortably, and he
stands a good chance of making a j
good deal of money besides. It might
ho possible to hurt such a farmer,
but "bust him"-never! "It can't be

Removing Stains from Clothing.
A frosh stain ls more easily re
moved than an old one, for the
longer tho stain remains in tho fab
ric, tho moro deeply lt penetrates
tho libers and tho moro difficult it
ls of romoval. Tho nature of tito
stain should bo known, if possible,
before its removal ls attempted, aa
this knowledge will detormlne Ibo
treatment to bo adopted. Moreover.
If un unsuitable stuin-remover is
used, tile stain may bo "set" so tliat
its removal becomes" more difficult.
For example, proteins, such as milk,
blood, eggs, aro "sot" If hot water
ls used on them. On the other hand,
fruit juico stains are easily removed
by means of boiling water. Soap,
which aids in tho removal of grease
spots, "sets" many fruit stains.
The kind of fabric upon which the
stain occurs should also be known.
Cotton and linen aro affected by
acids, consequently the use of con
centrated acids on theso fabrics is
dangerous. After acid has been used
some suitable alkali should bb ap
plied to neutralize lt. Househald
"ammonia, diluted with water and
borax, are simple alkalies suitable for
this purpose. Wool and silk aro
moro delicate than cotton and Huon
and require moro careful treatment.
The use of very hot water on these
fibers must be avoided. Strong alka
lies dissolve both wool and silk, and
botli aro injured by washing soda or
strongly alkaline soap. Acids, as a
rule, do not attack wool and silk

If necessary, then pour boiling watei
upon lt from a tea kettle at a hotghl
of three or four feet, so that th(
water will strike the stain witt

2. Ink.-Owing to the difference:
in the composition of writing Inks 1
is impossible to find agents whicl
are equally effective. Begin with th?
simplest method, und If that fails
try a moro strenuous one.
(a.) Apply an absorbent (salt o
corn meal, French chalk, talcun

Ink from spreading. Work the ab

(lb.) Milk.-Soak the stains ?or
day or two, if necessary, In sou
milk, changing the milk as often a

(c.) Oxalic acid, saturated sohl
tion. Soak tho stain for a few mir
utes, then rin3e In clear water an

3. Iron Rust.-This stain usuall
results either from contact with rust
Iron, wash pots or from the careles
use of certain laundry bluings. I
the latter case the iron base of th
bluing comes In contact with the a

be thoroughly rinsed from all trac

Stricken While nt ills Desk in Mis
sion . Donni Ofllco in Atlanta.
(Tugnloo Tribune, 22d.)
Westminster relatives and friends
of Dr. Samuel Young Jameson wero
shocked to learn of .his death, which
occurred at his homo In Atlanta last
Tuesday night. Ho suffered au attack
of acute Indigestion. He was strick
en while at his desk lu the mission
hoard office and died about twolvo
hours later.
Dr. Jameson was ono of the lead
ing Baptist ministers and educators
of tho 'South. Ho had servod many
churches as pastor and hold many
ofilces of educational institutions and
boards of the Southern Baptist Con
vention, and was, therefore, widely
known and highly esteemed.
Dr. Jameson was a brother of Mrs.
W. J. Stribling, of Westminster, and
cousin of W. L?. and B. M. England,
A. Gaines, J. S. Carter, T. N. Carter,
Mrs. J. W. McGoe and others here.
In the eighties Dr. Jamoson and
others organized the Now Westmin
ster Baptist church, which ls now
the Westminster 'Baptist church. He
was a great workor, and T. N. Car
ter informs us that Dr. Jameson and
ho bore the lumber from the saw
mill that was used in building the
church, after the location had been
secured. Tho saw mill was In tho
southern part of town, which was lu
woods at that time. Dr. Jameson
helped to build the church and was
its pastor until December, 1889,
when he moved to Atlanta and be
came pastor of the West End church
of that city. After serving that,
church eleven years he was associat
ed with the State Mission Board. He |
later became president of Mercer ?
University at Macon, fin., and from
Mercer ho went to Arkadolphla.Ark.,
and was at the head of Ouachlta Col- j
lege for a time. Since then ho has
been associate president of Cox Col-1
lege and superintendent of enlist- !
ment of the Southern Baptist Con- !
vention, and he made his home In
Atlanta and at College Park. Ga.
Tho degree of D. D. was conferred
upon Dr. Jameson from Morcer Uni- j
verslty, Furman University and the
Southern Baptist Theological Semi
As a pulpit orator Dr. Jameson
had few equals. He possessed a
strong, clear voice and could always |
deliver his sermons In a manner that
appealed to his hearers.
In 1895 Dr. Jameson spent several
weeks In Palestine. It was his pleas
ure and privilege to visit the '?oted
places of the Holy Land, where one
could almost Imagine he could seo
the foot-prints of the Saviour, In
order to better flt and equip himself
for his Ufe'B work.
The deceased was born near Hia
wassoe. Ga., Oct. 1, 1859. His mo
ther was a daughter of the late Jo
siah Carter and brother of John
Carter, formerly of this -place. She
ls known by many as Mrs. Lou Math
ewson, her second husband being the
late R. A. Mathewson one of our
town's first settlers. She died 13
years ago.
The first wife of Dr. Jameson was
a Miss Gaines, sister of our towns
man, J. E. Gaines. His surviving
wife was Miss Etta Bibb, only daugh
ter of the late William Bibb and
Susan Blair Bibb. He leaves four
daughters, Misses Vera, Alva, Chris
tine and Nella Jameson, and two
sons, Samuel and William; three
sisters, Mrs. Stribling, of Westmin
ster; Mrs. J. W. Galnos and Mrs Clif
ford Walker, of Monroe, Ga.
The body was burlod In Atlanta
Thursday afternoon, ^fter funeral
services, which were held from the
First Baptist church.
