ALL OVER 'CEPT THE SHOUnN'.
The Oi ieot work Rang is working on
the three miles of grade thi« way from
Clinton, and nearly a hundred cars of
steel and ties have been unloaded at
that point. They are coming down the
Htie now, and Sentiuel will soon be
ready to celebrate. Our town is grow-
ing now, and ere long will mend its
pace to a Dan Patch gait. No guess

WE NEVER DODGE.
From the start the News-Boy has
been busily engaged in forwarding the
commercial intereats of its home town,
contending for a just distribution, from
the county, of the road and bridge
fund, singing the praises of this garden
of Eden to ihose afar off, and holding
fast the faith in the Orient. If our ser -
vices along these lines have been worth
anything to the community in which we
live, well and good. We have stuck to
the text, and with the means at our
command have done what little we
could to bring about conditions for the
betterment of all. And now, that the
Orient is a certainty and confidence in
our little town can no longer be shaken
by false reports and wild rumors, the
•News-Boy feels justified in devoting a
little valuable space to the reformation
of county political affairs; to the ex-
posure of ring rule.
No use to close the door after the
horse is stolen; no use to wait till after
election to cry "wolf!" No use to dodge!
Toe the mark like true soldiers and
pet up against the "real thing."
The ring can make slates, but the
sovereign voters can smash 'em, if they
will. Get busy in the head and do a
little thinking for yourself.
The News-Boy editor is £ Democrat,
and some of the county officers are his
personal as well as political friends,
but he is opposed to ring rule and re-
fuses to bend the knee or tip the hat to
that little coterie of machine-made
statermen(?), at the county seat.
Let Governor Frantz display the
same courage and. manhood on the
book trust question as did Gov. Fergu-
son, if he would rise in the estimation
of the people. The fight is on again,
and emissaries of the school book trust
are getting busy.

LE9PEDEZA, OR JAPAN CLOVER.
BY 1. 8. CAMP.
Lespedeza is a native of Japan, and
sosaewhat resembles the clover plant,
hence the name Japan clover. It grows
very thick on the ground and to a
height of 12 to 15 inches, often higher
in rich soil. Very little seems to be
known of its introduction into this
country. Became conspicuous through-
out the South in piney woods and in
old fields along public roads soon sfter
the war. It is rapidly spreading aa a
wild plant, and no doubt in a few years
it will be found growing without culti-
vation in most parts of the South.
It makes excellent grazing and a very
fine quality of hay. The growth is
slow in starting in the spring, but later
it grows rapidly and is in condition to
be hsrvested during the dry season of
late summer, when there is generally
good weather for hay making. The
hay cures quickly and is easily han-
dled. The crop is not cut until some
of the first seeds have manured, and it
will then reseed the ground and pro-
duce a good stand the following year
without any further attention of the
fermer. In many old fields where the
soil has become too poor to be profita-
ble in com or cotton, lespedeza will not
only yield a fair return in pasture or
hay, but the soil will be rapidly built
up by the nitrogen gathered from the
air. Woodlands used for pasture would
be enhanced in value by scattering
few seeds through the woods in the late
fall or early spring. While we find
lespedeza growing more extensively on
the hill lands, it will grow well on most
all lands in the South, even in very
Some of the best farmers in the south-
ern states are devoting a part of their
land to lespedeza as a crop in a long
system crop rotation. The amount of
hay raised for the market is rapidly in-
creasing. and it finds a ready market at
a good price.
It is a plant that deterioates in qual-
ity from improper handling from the
