Tuesday, in Columbia, when Governor* Cameron Morrison of ^N°rlh Carolina came to address the South Cageling Genera1 A rn    I    .. hr Tar Her! executive    v    ^ his speech, a luncheon was ar. ango at the Jefferson Hotel. Governor McLeod occupied a sedc ... w..a vcl v. .aa table and Governor Morrison was seat-L*d at the other end. Present were probably sixteen other gentlemen. And coffee was the strongest beverage indulged. Not even the merest men ton was made of "What the Governor of North Carolina said to the Governor of South Carolina” on that memorable occasion dating back to the dark just following the War Between the Sections and which has been recalled many, many times during ihe past half century. For both Governor McLeod and Governor Morrison are total abstnin-ters. Frank Page, head of the North Caro Im* Htghwny Department and a br~th- .V Ute VValtQ’- Hines Page, n« \in**ncan Ambassador to th ' C ,tr. ;7 St James, was "among lh • Mr. Page accompanying 1 i. u> udt mtryn of tn\ cant of 6 per cent of nitrogen, and I per cent of potash should lie In additiep to the above, 50 to pounds of nitrate of soda or the of sulphate of ammonia be applied immedately after topping. On the heavier types of ii, or where part of the nitrogen applied as a side application, the lie forms of nitrogen, such as rate of soda and sulhate of amire just as good as the more ^pensive organic forms and may be usid to supply all of the nitrogen netd-r I. On Jfght soils where it is kl Oui all or a large part of the before planting, one-third , nitrogen should be supplied from >rganic materials such as cot- 1 tons#* d u.oal, fish scrap, blood, or tankage. 4. Time of Planting.—We reef lament the planting of all cotton in a -community at approximately the date, which should be after the soil is warm anough to give rapid germination and rapid early growth. In 1923, April 20 planting did bis. at Florence, and April 25 toMay I planting did best at Clemson College. 5. Spacing.—We recommend one to three stalks per nill 8 to 12 inches apart lr. "A to 8 1-2-uot rows on thin Roil, and 3 1-2 to 4 I ot rows on the more fertile soils. 6. Poisoning.—Wrier - hibernated weevils are aoundant (20 or mjre weevils per*a-re) we reccmmend one ap^lDati n of poison at t. • time the vc**y first square® to be four.

CorlisS of Lh* roit will pour tea on the opening day for a number of her friends. The H Uhland Park Tea Room has w n popularity in the past. Hon. G. Tillman Holley, member of the Aiken delegation in the General Assembly, has been confined to his home by illness for seveiui Jays, and na- bren unable to be in Columbia this week. John Wright, a well known farmer residing near Aiken, was taken wife custody Monday and a charge of violating the prohibition law lodged era inst him after Deputy Sheriff Nol-lie Robinson and State Constable Hart had found four gallon# of moonshine whiskey in Mr. Wright’s seed barn. Mr. Wright denies any knowledge of the liquor, claiming that some one is trying to "frame” him. He appeared before the clerk of court and gave bond.

Mr. Gage is making headquarters in North Augusta tor- the present, but his wort. will be confined very largely to Horse-oreek Valley, in which there arc a j number of bodies of impounded -wa era.

The Aiken Preparatory School on {he Isl of February, begins its second term with a full complement of boys and a keen anticipation of the Spring activities. These include besides the necessary intensive schoolroom training lor the Boarding School June en-trance examinations, preparations for the annual track events and the presentation of the school play. The Schools scholistic record ha* iieen very brilliant :n the past and promises well for the future with the material at hand. Old Aiken boys arc doing splendid work at the various boarding-schools, particularly at St. Pauls School, Concord, N. II. The annual sports day, or field track events, will be staged as usual on Washington’s birthday February 22nd. Short dashes, long distance races, broad and high jumping, relay and obstacle races make up the programme, deluding a Mothers Race in which the mothers of the boys do the best to I < mulate their sons. The school play this year will be the delight of Gilbert and Sullivan tom ic opera The Mikado. Rehearses are now in progress and on March . 19th the boys wul Aa* heard in the : meftil a mo,sphere of old Japan on I their open-air theatre in the school j grouids.
