It is no-sr time to begin soaring
some -crop* on your land that would
fcfaerwise be left bare during the
irmter. it is a known iact that nitrogen
readily leaches from tie soil
"Wfcen there is no growing crop on kind
to take it up.
flare the nitrog?* that you already
tars by sowing oats or rye on the
land tand turn in the spring as a green
manure crop. Better still, sow crimson
or bur clorer, and hairy retch
which being legumes, will not only
ooserre the nitrogen already in the
oil, but will gather more from the
air and store it in the soil for the
?ae of the crop next, summer. Sow
bur clover just as soon as you can,
iraecner you nave a good season or not.
K will come up when you do have a
good wetting rain. If this is your
first experience with bur clover, sow
it in your turnip patch, or a similar
rich, plot of ground; or if you have
ao such plot, broadcast some stable
manure on the land so as to insure j
you a good growth the first year.

properly prepared will produce enougn
seed for several acres next year.
If you are going to sow crimsoi*

Death of Miss A] ma Hawkias. f
On the beautiful eye of Aug. 26,
1916, the ba/ppy home of Mr. and Mrs.
& P. Hawkins was saddened by the
audden death of their only daughter,
Mis? Alma. Her death -was ia remarkably
sad one because of the fact Ciat
it ?ras so c addon. She leaves a demoted
father and mother and two
brothers Arthur and Burley to Eiourn j
cutir irreparauie loss, (uui one trwai
comfort to the bereaved cues' -is to
know that their loss is Ler eternal
-Hiss Alma was a faithful member
of St. Lukes churoh and Sunday
fichool, and frcm her earliest childhood
endeavored to learn the works
ind examples of her Savior, and to
fellow in his steps. She was .loved by
all who knew her. She is sadly missed
by all, but oh, in that sad family
circle her place never can fce filled.
Her loved ones are grieved by her
absence, 'but are sustained by the

that were formed on earth. She ?ball

os. the other shore beyond the rivor
of death. Hay God heal the many
-broken hearts and help them tc say,

In our blindness we cannot understand
it, but at last when all of life's
kcsons have "been learned and we too
kave been called up higher we snail
see and understand.
: Miss Alma was a dutiful daughter,
an affectionate and sincere friend and
will be sudly missed not only by her
family but bv all who knew her, for
truly to know her was to love her.
There are many mysteries in life
which we cannot understand but God
will reveal ?.ll to us if we C"iy watch j
faithfully and wait patiently, and we

Spartanburg Herald.
Id another column of The Herald
this morning will be found a news
item from Laurens which should ue
of great interest to every fhrmer in
Spartanburg county and to many who
are not farmers, but who have not
-fjst their love cf the soil.
Two hundred farmers in our neighi
bor county have purchased 12 tons of
: crimson clover seed and will this fall
sow 1,200 acres to this remarkable
soil-building plant. The order for seed'
is undoubtedly one of the largest
| ever placed in Ameriaa. The seed
I will be planted under the direction
and supervision of Mr. P. W. Moore,
farm demonstrator for the count7.
This is the biggest thing Laurens
county has ever started, and knowing
the pecple of that county ?.s we
do, our prediction is that they will
push it to complete success. It is a
j big think for Laurens and it is just j
| as big a thing for the state of South '
Carolina. Indeed, it is a big thing for j
the South, and we heartily congratu- j
late our neighbors on having had the
| ' i
nerve and the. initiative they have:
shown. I
The remarkable feature of this ex-1
periment is that this clover is to be !
sown us a cover crop, and next spring, |
after grazing the lands during the
late winter and early spring, the crop j
will be turned under and followed by ;
other crops. This cover crop is expected
to protect the lands on which
it is sown during the winter. Tiie
j South has lost many millions of aolj
lars each year, bv leaving cultivated
i lands bare ijfter the autumn harvestI
to be washed and weakened by the
j v,"inter rains. If, at the close of the
civil war, our .farmers had appreciated
the value of cover crops of
clover and had been able to plant
them, and the practice had been followed
to this d?.y, it is perhaps underi
stating the facts when we say that'
j the productiveness -of Southern fields
{today would be twice as great as it
J is. When we think that the cotton
J crop of South Carolina alone is worth 1
J in the neighborhood of. one hundred (
I l
i million dollars a year, we get some
j idea of the gigantic losses which
have come thrcugh our lack of prop-;
erlv protecting our soils and allow
ing their fertility to be washed away
by rain.
! This movement in Laurens is intended
to demonstrate on a large
scale what the leguminous cover crop
will do. Some of these farmers will j
perhaps fail to get ia stand, but
enough of them will do so to show i
conclusively the excellent results
whihe follow the growing of this nitrogen
collecting plant, of using it
during winter to hold the soil against
the ravages of the rains, and later,
turning it under as a humus maker.
With Spartanburg opening her alflaJfa
campaign and 'Laurens her great
crimson clover experiment, w- are!

Two Famous Kings Whose Last Rest- j
ing Places Are Unknown.
Two ancient kings were buried in secret
Attila. king of the Huns, after
his siege of Rome, died in Hungary
A. D. 453. His soldiers, desirous of
giving their great leader a right royal
burial, inclosed his body first iu a casket
of gold, this in one of silver and
this in one of lead, and transported it
into a desert. There slaves were selected.
and under the direction of meu
who were sworn to secrecy they dug
fh#? irrnvf* of lhe dead monarch. When
this was accomplished no traces of the
spot were left The slaves were all
cruelly slain.
Alaric, king of the Goths, the celebrated
conqueror of Rome, died wheu
with his army at Cozenza, south Italy
His men turned the course of a river,
interred the body of their sovereign,
with much treasure, in its bed and restored
the stream to its channel.
No man has ever lighted on the resting
place of either of these kings, who
in this respect resemble Moses, of
whom it is written. "No man knoweth
of his sepulcher unto this day."?London
Poor Thackeray!

for April, 1852, has this amusing

a written excuse was brought from
Dickens to be conveyed to Mrs. X. by j
Thackeray. The party drove up to the
house, and after compliments Thack- j

was unpleasant. Mrs. X. fled along
the hall, and the guests heard her calling
to the cook: 'Martin, don't roast
the ortolans. Mr. Dickens isn't coming.'

"Thackeray said he never felt so

you! Xo ortolans for Pendennis!' "
Protection From Lightning.
Sir Oliver Lodge stated that the
problem of securing protection from
lightning consisted in finding the best I
method of dissipating the enormous
energy of the flash, but that it was not
wise to get rid of the energy too quickly.
A thin iron wire is considered the
best lightning conductor from the electrical
point of view, but it is almost
fmnossihle to nrotect a building from j
lightning: unless it ia completely enveloped
in a metal cage. It is by no means
true that a building Is safe when provided
with a conductor reaching up to
the highest part of the building.
