Columbia, March 30.-lt will in
all probability be the last of April
before loans are actually made by
the Columbia Federal Land Hank
to farmers of the Southeast, accord
ing to David H. Houston, president
of the bank, who stated to-day that
his institution is receiving a large
number of applications for loans.
Mr. Houston stated that the Fed
eral board in Washington did not
propose to sell its bonds immediate
ly, preferring to make a careful
study of the money market before
offering tho bonds for sale, lt is ex
pected that during April. Mr. Hous
ton stated, tho board will issuo bonds
to produce revenue with which to
make loans to tho farmers.
'Mr. Houston states that new land
associations are being formed in
many sections, and the applications
for loans are coining in rapidly.
Those are being considered carefully
by the bank, but as yet no loans
have boen authorized, this depend
ing entirely on the sale of bonds for
the land hanks.
The Columbia Land Rank's oper
iitlons havo been greatly augmented
??Ince tho Supreme Court's decision
that tho land bank act ls constitu
tional. It is believed that tho mak
ing of loans by the bank will greatly

Dear Club Girls:
Although I am just as busy as eau
be, working from niuo in tho morn
ing until live in the aftornoon, and
sometimes at night, 1 have thought
of you all and wished that you were
hero to enjoy the hospitality of Win
throp College and seo these eleven
hundred girls busily engaged nt
their tasks, lt is to mo a wonderful
inspiration to seo so many people
going about their duties in such a
happy and methodical way. You
mdst all work hard, for, as you
know, the live girls who do the best
work in the county are to be re
warded with a ten-days' trip here In
We are having some wonderful
lectures on gardening, poultry and
dairying, and nutrition, and excellent
demonstrations and' talks on house
and yard improvement.
As the Vernal Equinox is here and
old Sol is sending his warm rays,
and tho singing birds and breezes
whisper, "Spring is here," there is
nothing that should take hold of us
like a desire to got into the garden
and dig. It is splendid exercise and
a wonderful spring tonic.
Help your mothers, and If they
have not already planted beets, car
rots, cauliflower, cabbage, celery,
corn, lettuce, onions, liarsloy, peas,
raddisbes, rape and spinach, urge
them to do so at once. Continua to
plant beans evory three weetTB to
have successive crops.
If you have any carrots from last
fall's planting, convert them .into
marmalade, which is sure to please
evory one
1 quart ground or grated carrot,
1 pint sugar,
1 orange (pulp chopped flnoly and
peel ground through tho meat chop
1 pint water.
Boil until very thick, stirring con
stantly to prevent scorching. Seal

Will meet the clubs as usual the
second week In April.
With host wishes. Sincerely,

"Let tho Women do tho Work."
Buffalo, X. Y., March 31.-Dr.
Leon O. Williams, pastor of thc Uni
versalist church of the Messiah, has
found a way to till empty pews. It
is to "let the women do the work."
.livery once in a while a woman ot
the church occupies the pulpit. Other
women act as ushers and collectors.
Dr. Williams sits in thc congrega
tion and "takes it easy." So do other
men of the church.
Tho church was crowded to tho
doors tile first Sunday women con
ducted the services-and that despite
I a stormy day.
Mrs. Harry W. Cordon preached.
Tho pastor's wife acted as the leader
of tho services.
Here's a paragraph from Mrs. Cor
don's sermon:
"The consciousness of man's unity
with Cod is not an instantaneous
achievement, lt's an unfoldment-a
growth In grace. Ignorance is not a
passport into beaven, neither ls this
spiritual attainment ti gift that falls
into Ibo lap of the indolent."
Sounds like a regular minister,
doesn't it?
"Women have a message for wo
men as well as for mon which a mas
culine ministry lacks," says Rev. Mr.
Williams. "With so much of our re
ligious work in tho hands of women
it is fair that they should havo tho
samo consideration as men."
There will be other Sundays when
tho pastor will have no part in tho
services except at a listener. And
some day ho will listen tn his wlfo
in the pulpit.
For Ibo first timo In hi.-tory Now
