operative system this year.
Unfriendly interests, chief among
whom aro tho gamblers and specu
lators who fattened on Gio farmer's
lack of marketing knowledge, will go
ao any length this season lo make
'weak kneed" members break their
contracts. Loyal members must al
ways bo on guard against such at
tempts and traco all disloyal talk
to its prpper source. All now cotton
belonging to members must bo de
livered to tho association, for tho
\ontracts must bo rigidly enforced
if tho association is to live up to Its
high Ideals. Any misinformed or dis
loyal member had better think sov
ertu times before he violates his legal
and binding contract which lies him
9; i th his fellow-farmers. Th reo far
mers who recently broke their con
tracts with tho Tobacco Growers'
Association aro soon to be hailed Into
court and their prosecution led by
nono other than Aaron Saplro, noted

to rejoice when several of their chll
children and a large number of their
special friends drove Into tho yard
with baskets filled with all kinds of
good things to oat. This being Mr.
Kelley's 69 th birthday he was glad
to know that his friends were think
ing of him. The children present
were W. J. Kolloy, W. B. Kelley, J.
M. Kelley, J. F. Kelley, Martin Kel-,
ley, Mrs. J. E. Rogers and their fam
ilies. Tho exact number of friends
could not woll bo determined, but
tho best that wo could number there
wero ?lxty In all, most of thom re
momboring Mr. Kolley' with a use
ful prosont. Tho morning was spent
in old-time, hoart-folt conversation,
carrying our minds back to the days
of long ago, when mon had timo to
enjoy tho ronl plcasuros that are duo
to go with lifo,- when thoy would sit
by the opon fireplaces of their neigh
bors, telling onch other tho stories of
tholr .childhood experiences.
At tho dinner hour a long, old
time plank table that had hoon built
under tho shade of the grove was
mado to groan beneath its burdon of
good things lo eat.
A flor tho dinner hour tho order of
tho day was changed. Rev. L. M.
Lyda was asked to make a talk, and
ho mado somo very appropriate re
marks on tho subject of fainlly re
unions. After tho good address by
Bro. Lyda, tho pastor of Mr. Kelley,
Rov. M. J. Stnnsoll, led In prayer,
aftor which ho road tho first vorso
of tho second chapter of St. Mark,
thon spoko for a little while of tho
Importance of Jesus hoing In tho
homo. At tho conclusion of his talk
ho asked .Bro. Lyda to close this part
of tho sorvico with prayer.
It was then suggested that wo
fchow our love by a gift In cash, and
Bro. Lyda carried tho hat around.
This gift amounted to a little more
