Editor Enterprise:
The communication from Wni, I
H. Wyatt in the Enterprise Mav
4th awoke sleeping memories. Is
he little Billy Wyatt, son of old
Uncle Billy Wyatt, who could pray ,
loader and longer, more fervently {
and effectiraty in a revival meeting
than any man of his time? 1
remember his little cozy home bv '
the deep sandy road north ot :
town.
If memory serves me right little
Billy Wyatt was a frail, diminutive
youth, semi-religious, semi-literarv
and seemed always on the verge of
the grave. I thought him long
since fallen asleep with his sainted
father. But here is to another
communication from him.
He may remember Wm. Bagley
an impoitaut factor in the old
town, who used to he interested in
sailing vessels from the West In
dies, bringing in molasses, rum
and tropical products. Think he
would load them out with tar,
turpentine, rosin and probably
shingles. I remember his "Eng
lish snuff box," of sniffing pinclus
of snuff, his red bandana handker
chief and loud blotvtiig all im
presssve to me.
And there was old Uncle Billy
Watts sitting on the long piazza of
the Watts Hotel, often heard the
big dinner bell, seeing strangeis
and well dressed men go in for
dinner. It was the wish of my
life to get diuner at that hotel, to
see especially how it looked and
bow it tasted. But my wish was
never gratified.
Yes, lawyer Williams, Kditor of
the Mercury, beard him address
the court aud jury using the word
".stricken" instead of the usual
phrase struck, the bar laughed and
probably the Judge, be l«cnme
confused. I think this was his
last speech in the old courthouse.
I think the Mercury in print
retained the letter "k" publick.etc.
His father, Amle Williams, a
merchant of the town, it was said
did a large business "by memory,"
booking the day's transactions at
night without memorandum.
The home of C. fi. Hassell was
the most imposing structure, the
moat attractive environment of
tree and grass, vine and flowers, I
had ever seen, and to have lived
there a sort of paradisaical reserva
tion. I remember his religious
ho.-ne in his younger days, the""bld
"Skewarkee meeting house." I
think probably a mile South of the
present site. It looked solitary,
sad and soothing, amid the great
towering oaks of sweeping foliage
that would cover deep the white
sands in the autuui days, the tall
virgin pine in their ever near, vet
far away, indescribable sighing*;
in the passing winds. The spot
was ideal. The ground hallowed.
The place ever awakening slum
bering song and story. Its
removal broke the links of mem
ory, snapped the Jfpes of tradition,
and ths,gray olcl Jsfk-lore passed
from the memory and sayings of
men. S
Well, am thinking now of four
I remember in school, who have
not yet gathered to-gether the
joys and sorrows of life for a pil
low of final rest and lain down to
dreamless sleep. Two at the old
Reddick school house below Holly
Springs, Cajali Perry and Frank
Pagan. Two at the town Acad
emy. George Whitley and Sylves
ter Hassell, all of different temp
eraments, different aspirations,
different pleasures, different pilg
rimages from the alpha towards
the omega. How strange human
ity's procession across the ages.
Yours truly,
Thom*« Yarrell.
Is Your Home Cosy?
There are many so-called homes
that do not deserve the name at all.
Home means comfort, but wheii we
have it fixed up so elaborately that
we must sit in the garret or the
back yard to genuinely enjoy our
selves, then it is high time we
made a change and turned out the
too-good-to-use articles and sub
stitute for them real homely things
that wry could enjoy every day of
the year and every moment of the
day.
Men like pretty home-makers,
no mistake there. They cau ap
preciate beauty as well as the next
one, but they want that beauty to
be of an order that appeals to their
comfott. Of what good are cush
ions so elaborately embroidered
that no head can rest on them?
What sense is there in easy chairs
of such rich material that they are
quite the reverse of the name giv
en them? Is there any satisfaction
in a room the furnishings of which

Mrs. Edward Phillips of. Barclay,

only open at rare intervals, when
the owner, perhaps, sits by the
kitchen fire or in some dingy sit
ting-room, where he can put his
feet on the fender if he wants to,
can smoke, and as a great indul
gence, tilt back his chair?
Let the sunshine intothe gloomy
rooms, have a couch to a piano

in; one wherein a sense of hospital

very tables and chairs, instead of
a mausoleum of gloomy elegance,
wherein every thing is for show
and nothing to lie used.

COTTON SEED REAL
For Mule and Horses,
At a meeting of the Sputli Car
olina Live Stock Association held
at Columbia, 9. C., on. Feb. Bth
and 9th an address full of practical
advice, backed by scientific know
ledge, was delivered by the eminent
Dr. Tait Butler, of Raleigh, N. C.,
on "Practical Stock Feeding in the
South.'' Dr. Butler is a recognir
ed authority on feeds and feeding
and what he says should have
a special and influence
throughout the entire South and
that part of his discussion touching
the feediug of horses, mules and
colts is of special importance to the
Southern breeder.
In the official report of the gen
eral discussion which fotypwed l)r,
Butler's address, this occurs, Dr.
Butter was asked: "You speak of
feeding horses on cotton seed meal.
What about the muscular forming
properties of cotton seed meal, on
the animal, compared to corn and
oats?"
I)r Butler: "There is enough
known about feeding horses cotton
seed meal for ine to state that if
yon had a horse that you were
feeding, 14 pounds of corn daily,
that you could take 6ut four pounds
of that corn and iynt in two pounds
of cotton seed m*al and get better
results. corn is not
t\iej}»*rfeed we have for supply
ing heii\ and energy, but there is
another thing needed. When that
horse supplies you muscular energy
he is burning up bis muscles- just
as you burn coal in a furnace to
supply energy to run the machin
ery in your factories, and he has
got to have something to build up
1 those wasted muscles, and corn
dose not contain it in sufficient
quantity. A little cotton seed
meal is better Ilian an additional
amount of corn. When you arc
already feeding your horses stover
and ten pounds of cor 1, I would
rkther have two pounds of cotton
seed meal added than four pounds
of corn. I would rather have two
pounds of cotton seed meal added
than four pounds of oats. Corn is
a horse feed, but we are
wasting two million dollars a year
-No Operation-
Mrs. Malinda Akers, of Basham, Va,, writes:
"I had what doctors call 'prolapse,' and couldn't
stand straight. I had pain in my back and
shoulders, and was very irregular and profuse.
Doctors said an operation was needed, but I
couldn't bear the thought of the knife. After tak
ing three bottles of Wine of Cardui, I could walk
around. Can now do my housework and am in
splendid health." / '

especially adapted to cure women's diseases. It

irregularities, and is a

in South Carolina feeding an all
corn ration. 0 .
"In what proportion would you
feed corn anil cotton seed, meal'"
I)r. Hutler: "That will depend
Upon your hay."
"Plenty of hav > "
Dr. Butler: "An average rat
iou for a thousand-pound horse
doing real hard work, is about 15
pounds of grain and 12 to 15
pounds of hay. Instead of 15
pounds of fodder and t.s pouud of
corn, I would take 5 pounds of
peavine hay and 7 to 8 pounds of
stover? and then add 10 pounds of
corn and 2 pounds of cotton seed
meal, and get better results. If I
had oats to feed and had some
peavine hay or clover hay, I do not
think I would feed any cotton seed
tneal at all, because it is bad to
feed unless you can mix it with
something else. If I did not Ijuivp
any peavine or clover, I would
certainly put some cotton seed meal
in the ration of a hard working
horse, unless I had plenty of oats,
and they were cheap."
This is important testimony from
the highest Authority, and should
interest every farmer and horse
owner in the South. We send
thousands of dollars" into «the
Northwest every year for corn.
We send into the Northeast every
year thousands of dollars worth of
our Cotton Seed Meal. Nobody
is lienefited by this but the rail
road-!. If we keep our cotton seed
meal at home to feed it will help
us, and Dr. Butler says it will help
our horses—and Dr. Butler knows.
