Tho following is a summary of a buI6
lotin published by Cornell university
exporiment station:
*1xtensivo tillage alone is not sut
clent to produce a large yield of pota
toes. The soil upon which the potatoes
are grown should be properly supplied
with humus if moisture is to be con
served through a drought.
On a soil well supplied with humus
the moisture may be conserved even
though a severe drought and a fair
crop of potatoes are produced.
- Spraying with bordeaux mixture in
nearly every case has Increased the
yield of potatoes even when blight has
not been prevalent. The practice should
become more general.
Harrowing potato land after potatoes
are planted and before the plants are
above ground is a good pratetice.
Intensive tillage may be overdone.
During a drought only so much tillage
is 6ecessary as shall keel) the surface
ve/ry loose and thoroughly dry. The
drier the surface layer of soil the
more slowly will moisture be absorbed
by it from the layers of subsurface

Plazj'nW Strawberries.
Mr. T0en favors the spade as a tool
for setting strawberry plants. I agree
with him. In fact, I have never seen
or heard of any method by which
strawberry plants can be set as rapid
1y, and as well, too, as with a spade In
the hands of one man and the plants
handled and inserted by a quick young
ster. In Oswego the man with the
spade carries on his hips, held by a
belt and straps from the shoulders, a
medium sized basket with plants pre
pared and ready for setting, from
which the boy who handles and in
serts the plants can hell) himself at
will. It's a good idea. By this method
an acre of strawberries can easily be
planted within a day's time, depend
ing, of course, on how close the plants
are to be set. I make may rows four

Secona ohurob is the mother of s
the Twelve Mile River Association. I
It was organized there seventy-four r
years ago. This church is said to <
be 'much -older than that,. beiag 1
now about one hundred and ten or r
fifteen years old. They 'are using t
the third house of worship since t
this church was constituted. .1
Whether the Twelve Mile River '
Association was the first in this (
county or not the writer does not 1
know, but It is safe to say that it I
was. At its session in 1889-the I
association-appointed a committee i
to write a brief historical sketch I
of the churches and in 1810 the I
following was written about i
"We proceed first to give the his. i
tory of the Baptist church at
Becona, Pickens District, S. C.
The time when this church was I
constituted, is a fact not within I
tho power of this committee to 1
give. But that it did exist in 4
August 1796, is a tact which is
known from the records of the a
Dhurch that being the earliest date I
which such records now show. At i
that time the church called a Pres- 1
bytery, consisting of Elders Joseph t
Logan and John Chastain, who a
Drdained William Murphy to the S
work of the ministry; and he be- 4
ing immediately called to the pas- J
toral care of the church, continued 4
in the same until April 1789, at I
wbich time Solomon Smith was I
3rdained to the office of the minis- I
try by a Presbytery consisting of (
Elders Joseph Logan and John 4
Chastain; and William Murphy I
still continuing in the pastort I
-are of the church, she continued (
her onward march (her pace, how- 4
aver, being quite ordinary, as ap- J
pears from the records,) until the I
3pring of 1807, at which time the c
Rev. inathan Davis was called <
,o the pastoral care of the church, I
who continued in the same until f
he Autumn of 1818, and from the 1
3est information which this com.
nittee is in possession of, the t
iumber of members in the church '1
raried from 70 to 80; and it ap- p
ears that from the Autumn of t
L818 up to the commencement of e
.he year 1820, the church was a
vithout a pastor, She, however, a
it the latter date called Elder I
[saiah Stephens to her pastoral t
aare, who continued therein until e
Lhe Autumn of 1822, at which
time the church called a Presby tory,
which ordained Jacob Lewis to the a
>flce of the ministry. Isaiah I
Stephens still continued the sup- i
ply of the church until July 1823, e
it which time the church called
bhe aforesaid Jacob Lewis to itsi
pastoral care, who continued in a
he same until his decease, whlich I
was in August 1838. Immediately
aifter which the church called ,
E~lder Thomas Dawson to serve
them as their pastor, who still con
binues to serve themi as such."
Other brief sketches of some of
Lhe churches .are given, viz:
'Mud Crook" church in Hfenderson
::ounty, N.C., which was constitu
ted in 1802 with 25 members;
[Jathey's Creek church, also in the
same county and state, but now in
I'ransylvania county, which was
Drganized in July 1822. Both of
those churches 'wore offsprings of
French Broad church. West
Union church (now in Oconee
county) which was constituted 10th
September 1886. The last sketch
is with reference to Middle Fork
Saluda. The 'dateoofite organiza
tion is not known, butt was prior
to 1786.
This practice of writing histori.
cal sketches of the churches Was
abandoned after theyeav 1841, and
it was a mistake to do so. There
should be some way to preserve
and perpetuate-the early struggles
and succesues of our fathers in
their labors of love, as well as
their heroic deeds in time of war.
It should be taken up agaiin and
recorded in the minutes of the as
sociation. But it will be seen
from these brief sketches that as
soon> s the bloody conflict of the
Revolution was over, the brave
warriors for civil liberty began the
confiet for religious liberty, and
for more than a century they have
been fighting the enemy under the
leadership of the Captain of their
Salvation. The war still rages and
the end is not yet. Many of these
old veterans of the Cross have
long since received the reward of

Columbia, S1e Record has the following
pecial this afternoon;
Union, S. C., June 6.-News of a err dsucon
igh water at Pacolet, seventeen miles north ofthi'pr e,~has
ist been confirmed by S. G. Gregory, an operative of the
acolet mill, who arrived here on the noon train. In an inter.
iew he said there was a terrible heavy, steady rain all night.
Vhen people went to the mill at 6:30 to go to work the water
as up to the double bridge, built by the county last year.
In about two minutes the bridge went down and then a shop,
eef market, dentists'office and warehouse number two. The
peratives did not go to work as the wheel was drawn out by
ack water. About 8 o'clock mill No y colhosed then the
resbyterian church and warehouse No. 1, and at 9 0AciUk
ill No. a -went-down- .. About io o'clock heavy timbers,
iown to be used in mills, came down the river, snpposed to
we been Clifton Mill No. i and No. 2, but they passed over
ie danis without breaking through. Timbers and a great
eal of household furniture also floated down, showing that
ie houses at Clifton must have been wrecked.
A sad incident was when a little boy about fourteen years
id, recognized to be a son of a nman named Bud Johnson'came
wn on a piece of' timber. He cried, "Save me!"' But just
LCen the plank went down and he was seen no more.
The company store, which is about i 50 yards from the river
is 10 feet of water in the cellar, and has been locked and no
te will be allowed to enter.
Great excitement prevails here and it is believed that the re
3rt with regard to Clifton No. x and No. 2 having lbeen ~'
ashed away is correct. It is also feared that considerabje
amage will be done Lockhart mills when the water strikes
A man who has just arrived in town crossed Broad River at
te mill at 8 o'clock this morning says the water had risen but
tle. Lockhart is cut off from telephone and telegraphic com
unication with this place. At 2:30 the following dispatch
as received from Pacolet, showving the situation was consid
.ably improved and that the third mill still stands.
Pacolet, June 6-The water is at a standstill. The Pacolet
[ills store is still all right. The new mill has not suffered
ty further damage. All hope the worst is over.
Later dispatches say the Clifton Mills were greatly damnaged
att not washed away and that three people were drowned.
Over 3,000 employes in the mills at Clifton are out of work
id in destitute circumstances.
At Pacolet 2,000 people are practically destitute. In the
nailer mills of the county the number thrown out of employ
ent will exceed that of 5,000.
