THE PIERSON MEETING.
CABBAGE IN THE SOUTH.
The comine of Dr A. T.
il Pierson to Asheboro was of but few
hours' notice, and to the majority of
i the citizens of the town he was nn-
known, notwithstanding the fact
( that he is a character of both na
t tional and international reputation.
? f i Dr. Pierson has served as pastor in
J UOIue Ol II1C gicai unco vj. j-iiaiv
s and America, notably among these
I are London, England; New lork,
Philadelphia and Detroit, in the
United States. He has for more
than twenty years been the acceptable
and successful editor in chief of the
! Missionary Review of the World
a periodical enjoying a large and
' wide circulation in Christian coun
tries and is a monthly visitor to all
IMission fields in every land. He
has written more than forty books
and pamphlets covering the
various subjects of Christian liter
ature, perhaps the most important
of these is the "Miracle of Missions"
Jwhich has greatly accelerated the
missionary interest among the En
glish speaking people
Dr. Pierson's series of services in
Asheboro began at the Presbyterian
cnnrch Monday nignt ineui mat.
The subject of this first sermon
v;was first Cor. 11, 30-32. and was a
fine effort of a well trained mind, a
I properly drawn picture of the aston-
ishing inactivity of the church of
j The first lecture was also in the
?. Presbyterian church Tuesday after
s noon subject, the structure of the
i Bible, the formation of the sixty
flix books into one perfect and
'symmetrical whole, proving most
j conclusively considering the dura
tion of time and circumstances,
that the Divine hand guided and
i the Divine mind shaped this perfect
arrangement. After this service, the
i lectures were at the Presbyterian
: church, and the evening discourses
were at the Methodist Episcopal
f church South.
j Tuesday evening's dii-ourse ' was
upon the subject of temptation,
! based upon the first chaptei of
' James, it showed, not only, the
i fearful consequences of yielding to
j tempt ition, but also the strengthen
t ing power and victory achieved by
i the disciple who successfully resists.
Wednesday afternoon Continua
j tion of lecture upon the Bible, the
-r special subject of this hour was
: prophecy. The speaker took up
p many of the prophecies of the Old
V I Testament from Genesis 1 3 Malachi,
tv ; in reference to a coming Savior,
'I'y covering a period of nearly four
J thousand years, showing their per-
jj feet and minute fulfilment in the
B coming life, death, resurrection and
ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ,
.si Wednesday night subject, fel-
Hl lowship with God, shown in two
aji words ju3tificition and reconcilia-
anty tion. Justification was shown to be
o-f: a judicial act, that when God for-
20T gives sin He treats the person as
24 though no sin had been committed.
The speaker also snowed tnat re
cone'lation is not a matter of feel
ing, but aa act of the human will
in a positive choice.
Thursday afternoon continuation
of lecture upon the Bible. Subject
types, which was to my mind the
best talk of the week," being very
conclusive in proofs of the Divine
inspiration of the Bible.
Thursday night the la9t service
of the week was used by Dr. Pier
son to describe the great revival in
the kingdom of Wales, showing the
steps that led up to it and the re
sults which followed. Outlining
the method by which a revival may
be produced anywhere and at any
Those talks were the fruit of a
ripe experience after a long and
careful study of the word of God.
Having been requested to write
this for the Courier, I decided
that to follow the course persued
above, to take tbe talks in the order
in which they came would be most
ABheboro has been highly honored
in the presence of a visitor of such
eminent qualifications and distin
guished reputation, and those who
failed to hear all, or a part of those
talks, have missed an opportunity
that may never come to them again.

There la growing wild over a large
stretch of territory all through south
and southwest Texas on atl kinds of
soil and under all kinds of conditions,
along river banks and away off on up
lands a small bush-like walnut known
commonly as Mexican black walnut
(Juglans rupestrls). Tor the past eight
yenrs this writer has been carrying on
experiments with the above mentioned
species as stock for the Persian wal
nuts, with most flattering and encour
aging results. A small grove of young
trees of Juglans rupestrls top budded
In 1890 bore three good crops in suc
cession. The experiments with pecans on this
stock are of too recent nature to war
rant going into detuils, but there Is
reason to believe that pecans will suc
ceed ou this stock equally well. An.
other advantage lu using this stock, if
further experiments prove successful,
Is the fact that the seed can easily be
obtained in quantities and sprouts as
easily, and It furnishes as good a stand
iu nursery row as will peach pits.
It would be advisable, I think, if the
experimenters in other pnrts of our
country which are naturally adapted
to nut growing would carry on experi
ments along this line. I forgot to say
that my experiments clearly point out
that In using rupestrls stock there Is
danger of cross pollenization.
In one of the trees a small limb was
left unbudded. In the first year when
the scions bore this limb was small
and bore no catkins; the Persian wal
nuts were of a paper shell variety, the
same as on the parent tree from which
the scions wyre taken. The following
ye'ar, when tho unbudded limb had
grown larger and borne both nuts and
catkins, the pollen of tho wild stock
clearly brought about a change as to
the size, shape and thickness of shell
lot the Persian walnut, practically pro
ducing a hybrid. G. A. Schattenberg.
FLOWER BED DESIGN.
The Dahlia Furnishes a Very- Novel

Winter being the time when the gar

cause it is patterned after a dahlia In
form, and it is not, In fact, composed
of dahlias. A writer in Floral Life
mentions it among the interesting fea

tome Important Points In Crowing
There are a great many people in
the lower south who do not think that
cabbage will bead for tbem. That it
does not head as readily as it does far
mer north is true, for the collard is the
result of growing cabbage in an ad
verse climate. In fact, if cabbage is
allowed to seed in south Georgia or
Florida for some years the disposition
to head will become less and less until
eventually you will have a collard. If
only northern grown cabbage seed be
used, planted early on deep, rich, moist
land, the influence of an uncongenial
climate will be overcome.
And now a word about seed. Don't
try to save by buying cheap seed.
With a crop worth anywhere from $200
to $000 per acre It is foolishness to try
to save at the outside from $2 to $3 In
buying cheap seed, which might mean
the price of success or failure.
Seeding- and Transplanting,
In middle Georgia, for tbe spring
crop, seed Is started In open ground by
the first to the middle of October. For
all medium early varieties, for tbe ex
tra early varieties, such as Early Ex
press, etc., this is too early, as quite
a large per cent will go to seed in
the spring. For these seed is started
under glass in mild hotbed or green
house during December.
We have found that it pays to trans
plant all our cabbage plants to cold
frames, both those started in the open
In October as well as those started in
the greenhouse in December. The
transplanting costs something, but this
is more than gained in stocky, fully
developed, healthy plants as well as
some days In earliness. As to varieties,
a selected strain of the Old Flat Dutch
makes heads of just about tbe right
size, with few outside leaves.
Planting In the Field.
For extra early plant Jersey Wake
field and Extra Early Express in the
field from the 1st of February to the
last of March for middle Georgia. The
land should be manured, plowed and
harrowed down ready for planting, in
early winter preferably. That cabbage
requires deep rich soil is hardly neces
sary to say. From twenty to thirty-two
horse loads of stable manure and 2,400
to 4,000 pounds of commercial fertilizer
per acre are frequently used with prof
it, the stable manure plowed under with
turn plow)- the fertilizer broadcasted
and worked iu the surface soil with cul
tivator or similar tool. If cabbage can
follow a cowpea crop so much the bet

Corn In North Carolina.
The Importance of the corn crop in
the state of North Carolina cau best be
Indicated by the fact that 47 per cent
of all the laud iu cultivation in the
state Is devoted to this crop, and yet
the average yield per acre is only 12.8
bushels, nearly the lowest average of
any of the states of the Union. Now,
why should this be so? The soil is not
at fault, for there is as good soil iu tbe
state as the sun shines on. Tbe climate
Is not nt fault, because the state is real
ly more in the corn belt as far as lati
tude Is concerned than any of the
6tates north of Masou and Dixou's Hue.
Tbe corn plant originated In a warmer
climate than this and Is quite at home
In the state ns far ns that point is con
cerned. Now, therefore, the methods of
growing the crop must be where the
blame ies for the failure to make a lar
ger yield per acre. C. K. McQuarrle.
