OF J. M. HAMLIN
My reminiscences today reach
back but a few days and 'sympatheti
cally, they have the dazzle of new
money. I attended the rendezvous
pi the Zeb Vance Camp U. C. V. on
the 24th., ult. I had heard on the
wayside before 'of unbelievable com
plimentary treatment accorded the
old veterans by county and city au
thorities, daughters, sons and citi
zens generally, but when I got there
and heaja and saw, I realized the
half had not been told me. There
was no more life in me.
t knew pers^ally not one; but
having previously merely met com
rade Arthur, cousin to the Historian
and Mj\ Creasman, a son, who forc
ed me oi) the spot to call him Tom,
ai}d who seemed to stand in as a
drummer boy, took me in hand and
as. far as -possible made me one of
the squad. In this experience pleas
ant as it was, an unexpected botnb
exploded in my face. While my
hahd was being pressed by that of a
comrade possessing apparently no
more dignity than I had assumed,
remarked, "Why that's the name of
the rilan that wants to beat my son."
As an eminent detective had said
that 98 per cent of arrests for felo
nies, guilty or not guilty, the ,Mc
tims in the first breath declared in
nocency -of the charge. Thinks I,
?'no use to own or deny; it will .not
change the situation." Struggling
coughing, and trying to get th? tickle
out of the throat, a daughter blurted
out: "He's on the same side of the
fence w.th Zeb." So he turned sat
isfied, there may be a mixture of
names, but apparently confused with
the perplexing question, "How is it
that 'Southerners are not always
Southerners, while New flSnglanders
arc always New Englonders?'*: ^
This was the day when thaoptln
ty com mjssi on era formally ^ ifyiittied
over a spacious room in th? x>?lr- an
nex of the .Court House to tie Camp
to have and to hold during its natu
ral life. The speeches tendering
and. accepfng were peculiarly ten
der. A' number of pathetic speeches
by Veterans, sons and daughters
were interchanged. 1 must mention
one. of the speakers ? Mr. ' John W.
Neely ? a Brevard boy who left his
native heath, went to Asheville and
made good, Asheviile will, If she
doesn't already, claim him and that's
all right if hi? origin is not .tamper,
ed with. ?
While Mr. Neely waj speaking I
was thinking of .his adolescent days.
He came up in Brevard's hoodlum
age. How did he escape contanpna
tlon? How? ? by doing the wise act
of his life ? he sold his yoke of oxen,
listened to his mother's advice, left
home and entered school. While
the hoodlums have long since gone
to the- moles and bats, John lived and
is still living. He seems t? be the
quasi-quartermaster of the camp.
He furnishes the gray uniforms with
brass buttons, such as the "Virginia
girls use to cut off our uniforms for
their souvenir strings.
Having received pressing invita
tiohs to attend this meeting I don
ned my best* civilian suit to appear
before- ? what turned out to "be a
well uniformed squad in fhe "beloved
gray. It seemed I was called upon
to impersonate the <fld citizen, "who
in days of yore, stumbled into camp
to be crushed by the jeers of impu
dent soldiers. I could have imagined
the distant echo of the roaring Rap
pahannock mingled with the remem
bered tones, "come out of that
bandbox, you're inthere; I see your
legs dangling." Happy to say the
camp Vance bw have reformed ar^jl
soon seemed f-was the only one to
see the unfitness of things.
Having passed through the oratori
cal functions and calamities men- J
tioned the "mess" hour arrived. |
The last scene of an object being
the one remembered the word "mess"
flaunted obtrusively before me the
picture of the hungry boys surround
ing the kettle or frying pan, each
with a pocket knife or a flattened
stick, .doling out of the common ves
sel his moiety of "hard tack or
cush;" but "mess" in the Zeb Vance
camp is placed in the glossary
"archaic" or "obsolete." Now it
suggests catering to the best in the
market. professionally prepared,

BEAN BEETLE DEMOHSTRA- %
TION, CO-OPERATIVE SEED ?*"'
, ORDERS ET^..
I attended the bean beetle demon
stration at the Swannonoa t State
Farm. Mr. Howard, the Federal
Specialist, who has spent three years
with thif one pest, gave us all h<*
knew about the best methods of con
trolling the beetle.
For those having dust guns, mix
one ptnind of poison, one pound sul
phur ahd four pounds of dry lime.
This is the Cal-Sulphur you see ad
vertised in , the farm papers.
For liquid sprays, use three fourths
pounds of arsenate of lead to fif_
ty gallons of water, which is a slight
ly heaped up table spoon to the gal
lon of water. He claims this will
not burn the leaves, but does not
kill -well as what I have recom
mended in other articles.
These two are the only ones we
need to fool with, he says, as they
ire , the best and cheapest. He far
ther states that every known spray,
sweet stuff or what not has been
tried without success. He claims
a iiO per cent xcrop with the above
methods on bunch beans, but for
vine beans, he b'egs that we do not
use them, unless we make sure to
hand pick the bugs.
In answer to my question about
using lime, he states that it only
chases them away for a time, and he
has found t^em .five miles away in
in twenty hdurs with his special dust
or paste cm their backs. This is why
they hav^'scattered so fast and wide.
We have hot been killing many, but
sending them off to hunt new- fields.
It is hard on the man who as yet has
If you give up your beans to the
bugs, please be mean enough to pull
up the vines, to starve the young
bugs to death..
Each female beetle lays abuot
seven hundred eggs during her life
of about three months. Thirty days
from the egg to adult beetle, so the
offspring of one female may run up
to a million beetles before frost.
Between broods, as this week, is the
time to plant more beans.

minutes and an exciting tussle be

It was stated last night that Mr.

Mr. Duncan ' says these two
