Cumming. Ga., route 2. Sunshine in The Home, Power in The Life. From. Hon. Thos. M. Bell. Hon. Thomas M. Bell, con gressman from the 9th district, was opposed to the conscript ion law, and is writing a letter to many inquirers. We print belo\y a copy of this letter: “Congress has appropriated seven billions of money, most of which will be loaned to the Allies for munitions, stores and provisions, which, I believe, is all they need to bring the war to a successful conclusion. I can not, therefore, with the lights before me and with a con sciousness of a duty I feel with in me, cast my vote for conscrip tion which I believe means the sending of our boys and young men to a foreign soil to engage in war. We have won all the wars we have engaged in without resort ing to conscription and con gress recently appropriated 30 thousand dollars to repair the flags we have won through the volunteer system. If our beloved country was invaded by a foreign foe, our men would, without waiting for a conscript act, take up arms in its defense and the men and wo men would never allow the A merican flag to trail in the dust With best wishes, I am, Your friend, Thomas M.

Every farmer should have some on his farm.. We are selling them at actual cost to us, at $2.50 per bushel. Hooper Gin and Seed Cos. CUMMING, GA., MAY 18TH, 1917. Farmers Work for May Owing to the very wet winter and late spring, the preparation for all crops has been very im perfect. But this seemed to be necessary in order to get the seed in the ground early enough to get a full crop. Especially with cotton. A great deal of this imperfect preparation may be overcome by rapid cultiva tion. Therefore to get the best results you must keep the weed ers, harrows and cultivators running as much as possible. Don’t stop for dry weather but keep them going,, for the finer you get the surface the better you can retain the moisture in the soil. Don’t allow clods to stay on your farm but crush them up and make the plant food that is in them available for your crop. I had rather have rocks than clods to grow a crop among. Don’t have eith er, crush the clods and use the rock to build dams to hold your soil. Everyone has noticed the good effects of having a dust mulch to catch the light show ers that frequently fall during May and June. If the soil has been ploughed to a depth of 6 or 8 inches either in the fall or spring it will not be necessary to cultivate more than 2 inches deep. The thing to do is keep going with shallow running tools. After the plants get to large tear up the tender roots of the plants for the plants need them all. May is the month for plant ing a great m; oy Legumes such as cow peas, velvet beans and soy beans, and every farmer should attend to these crops at the proper time. The velvet bean requires almost the entire -season in this latitude to ma ture a crop. Hence it should receive your attention at once. It seems that this crop grows well with corn with practically no damages to the corn. Plant ing should be between hills of corn, when the corn is about 6 inches high plant 2 beans be tween every other hill. The vines gather a large quanity of nitrogen from the air and de posit it in the soil. Some of the experiment stations have found that the vines on an acre when turned under are equivalent to 1400 lbs of cotton seed meal as a fertilizer. I know this is a val uable crop for cattle feed. Plant the 90 day or speckled variety Soy beans grow somewhat like cotton and should be plant ed by itself, for hay prepare land well and plant in rows 30 inches wide and 6 or 8 inches in drill cover 1 */•> inches deep, they wont germinate over 2 inches deep, cut for hay when bean gets grown. For beans as soon as pods get ripe they are apt to pop open. Plant Mammoth Yellow they are ex cellent for man or beast and a good soil builder. I wouldn’t advise planting very extensive ly of this crop until we are bet ter acquainted with how to cul tivate the plant and cure the hay. The value of the cow pea is to well known to require much comment. I'll say however that its value as a food and hay crop is to great to be neglected for any new or untried Legume. It is most to early to plant the pea yet. It may be planted the last of May between the hills of corn. Or it may be sown broad cast in the corn at laying by time. Be sure and sow all wheat and oat stubble in peas and The Unheeded Warning. God is ever warning the children of men against sin, for sin always has deadly effects Every human being with whom we have been acquainted that has passed over the border from time to eternity should re mind us of the fact that we, too, must go sooner or later; their passing away is really a call to us from God to get ready for death. Then the object lessons that mature affords us the dying of seeds which are planted in the ground that they may be mul tiplied through a resurrection from mother’s earth is a contin ual warning or call to us to get ready for death, besides the many warnings that come from God through the instrumental ity of His people. But there is a warning, or call which I have termed “the” warning viz; the downfall of Europe, of which I want to say a few woi'd-s. This great warning from God has been sounded to America, especially these United States of America, for nearly three years. Rut with what results? From bad to worse is my an swer. To my mind we, as a nation, are more sinful now than three years ago. It seems that we entered into this war very hopeful, thinking victory would be very soon. But God only knows to what extent we will be plunged into this bap tism of suffering. One great evangelist ; said; last year that if we had no oth er national sin but Sabbath desecration that that would be enough to call down the wrath of almighty God upon us. As I think of the business that is transacted, joy-riding in auto mobiles, buggies, etc., and oth er sinful pleasures that are car ried on during the Sabbath, I am made to believe the words of the evangelist. Although Europe claimed to be Christian, she depended up on culture and refinement ar mies and navies to save the na tions. But Alas! How different is the scene! The arms of civiza tion were too short to save! Say, friends and fellow-cit izens are we not following in their footsteps? Oh, is it not high time for nation-wide, yes, world wide penetence and pray er. If God turn from His fierce anger that we perish not. If God was willing to spare Sodom for the sake of ten righteous men and if He spared Nineveh when they repented, will He not spare us if we repent? Someone will say yes, but will they do it? The question is “will we do it?”. Reader do not think you lose your individual responsibility in National responsibility. For Nations, like families, are what the individuals make them. Oh, then dear reader, let us as individuals heed this solemn warning, turn away from and turn to God, that God, “My turn away from His fierce an ger that we perish not,,. P. H. Stokes. If you want jitney business done call on R. E. Harrison. He will haul you at a reasonable price. sorghum at the rate of 1 bushel of peas and 1 gallon of sorghum seed per acre for hay. Very truly yours, S. J. Smith, County Agent. The Georgia Baptist Hospital. The Baptist Sunday schools of the state, more than eighteen hundred in number, will have a special day on the first Sunday in June, at which time there will be a special offering for the charity work of the Georgia Baptist Hospital. This day is observed every year. The superintendents and teachers of all the Baptist Sun day schools of this county are putting forth unusual effort to make this year’s offering the largest they have ever had. What This Money is For. The Georgia Baptist Hospit al receives the sick from every section of the state. There is scarcely a county in the state that has not some time during the past four years sent some of their sick, poor and depend ent ones to this hospital, where they have been treated free. More thtan fifty crippled and deformed children have had their little limbs straightened and many of them made to walk. The most of these were from the homes of the poor, who were unable to furnish hos pital care for these little ones. More than five hundred s ' r, ople have received medical ; id hos pital treatment free, and more than a thousand have received free medical treatment, paying only a small part of the actual cost of their board while in the hospital. It is for this work the Sunday schools are asked to make a special June ..3rd, _ , - . . ’ ; This is True Christianity. A Christian is Christ-like, and Christianity is doing the things which Christ did. One of the things which He devoted more of His time and thought to was in treating the sick and reliev ing the suffering, causing the lame to walk and the blind to see. This is the work to which the Georgia Baptist Hospital is devoting its efforts, and while its aims are primarily to care limited only by the gifts of the for the poor, yet ts efforts are churches and Sunday schools. None are ever turned from its doors except for a lack of rooms and funds. Here every class, condition and creed are welcomed. Here all can find opportunity to express the spir it of Jesus in their gifts. To fail here is to fail in the fundamen tals of Christianity, for here we .-re pr viding for hose o our own land and country. “He that provideth not for his own hath denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.” $20,000.00 will be needed this year from the Sunday schools to care for all the sick poor who are coming to the Georgia Bap tist Hospital. Let every Super intendent work the plan which he has received, and this sum will be raised. Jesus will say to all who give, “As ofl as ye have done it unto one of the least of these sick ones, ye have done it unto Me.” Mike Wilbanks is expecting a car of Jackson G. Smith bug gies in this week. Call ami get one for cash or good note be fore they are all gone. Call on Clay Bagby, Flowery Branch, Ga., route 2 for hogs and cattle; also for lumber of all kinds.
