SUNDAiY IN WILLIAMSTON
What the people did in town Sun

Speaking from the religious side of
the question, we get much pleasure
from the day's experiences, because It
brings us into contact with people of
all agea and stations of life.
First is a view of a Sunday school,
where we find a large gathering em
bracing what we call the beat of our
race, the children, the older ones, and
then the old, all studying together,
praying together, singing together, all

hymns of praise, prayers, and thanks,

eloquently of the opportunities that
man has to regain the favor of God

Then a new opportunity to think,
study, and worship presented itself in
a large gathering of colored people in
a Sunday school and church rally,
where waa found no leas of the same
spirit of worship as before. Aside
from the regular Sunday school pro
gram thay had on hand a special
choir from Darden* and two special
quartettes, each composed of four
young colored men. When one was
not in action another was—something
doing every minute—and the fellow

waa no preaching, bet much praying,
in the program J
The religious day closed with the
regular services at the various
churches and a sermon by Mr. Her
man Smith at the courthouse. Mr.
Smith ia a follower of Pastor Russell
and proclaims n dodctrine of many
ehaagea from the old order of things.
He greatly modifies hell; in fact, takes

have them be, then we must teach

they do not need too much religion,
not enough to make them sad and

As a result at four years' (apart
ments on cotton, the Mississippi
(Delta) Experiment Station recom
mends as "the safest and most paying
rata of application" from 160 to 200
pounds of Nitrate of Soda per acre.

The Station's remits are interesting
from another standpoint, for accord
ing to the Director of the Station they
indicate that there is danger of apply
ing Nitrate too lata.
Thus, when the application is mock
over 100 pounds per acre, it is recom
mended that half be used at planting
and half at the second cultivation,
but, says Director Ayrss, "Those who
are not sure ths fertiliser can be ap
plied as a side dressing by the time
the first squares appear should apply
it all at orbefore planting."
This, of course, Is true nottimpiy of
cotton but of many other crops as
well. For sxampla, Farm Afsnt H. H.
Hester, Red River Parish, Louisiana,
reports that disnonatmtioas on sugar
cane in which 200 pounds of Nitrate
of Sods per acre were used gave excep
tional yields despite a dry season. It
was clsariy shown by these testa that
early applications of Nitrata "are
essential to give full protection against
a possible drouth."
As a general rule, side dressings of
Soda at ths rate of 100 pounds per
