I think most every farmer is
going to work harder this year

their farms self-sustaining.
" Our congressman, Mr. Joe

some sugar beet and other seed,

and .they have cbme up. It is

The peopTe are going right
ahead planting cotton and I
tMnk the most of them will finish
in a week or ten days. It has
been for a good long while now a
most favorable d;y time for all
kinds of work for the farmers.

How can' South Carolina be

I have never seen the crows
worse; I had to plant some ground
over. I see some good stands of
corn.that was let alone by the
crows. The stands of cotton are
increasing every day and will be
good 'ere long, I think.
I thin the United States are
engaged in an unholy war against
the Filipinos, our aliies, in wrest
ing the islands from Spain. The
United States have not acted fair
and equal with them as she or
they did with Cuba. The Fili
pinos were fighting for their
libe ty, and will fight on for it.
It weuld be easy for the UL'ited
States to' have peace if they
would assure them of their inde
pendence and protection in it as
they did for Cuba.
I tiink the majority of the
states of our Confederacy have
good homes for their veterans.
South Carolina did a right good
thing when she increased her
pension money to her surviving
soldiers. ~Why cin't South Caro
lina do as other powers are doing,
pension all her remaining vete
rans? South Carolina is able
enough, but she prefers the lead,
profits and the evils of the liquor
Mind you, S:)nth Carolina's
standing has been kept up by her
martyrs and1 survivors of the
cause for which they fought for.
I don't call it a lost sause, for it
was one of rigbY and justice.

NOTES ABOUT CATTLE.
Highest Prices for Beef in Twenty
Years-$500 for a Bull.
he highest price for cattle in
2 years at Kansas City was,
reached last week when 18 one
and two-year polled Angus steers,
averaging 1329 lbs., broughi $7.15
per 100 lbs. They were fed by
C. H. Butler, of Frankfort, Kan
sas, for five months, gaining 460
l'6. per head.
A combination sale of 150
Herefords, from 25 herds in Mis
souri and Kansas, took place at
Kansas City last week, averaging
$162. Top price was $500 for a
young bull; a heifer brought $400.
Most of the cattle were young,
a m-ijority bulls. e
Nine carloads of Hereford bulls
were shippel last week from
Kansas City to Oregon, where
they will be sold at public auc
tion. This is a new move on the
part of Hereford breeders. Who-re
blooded ca,ttle are raised, it is
always more difficult to sell bulls
than cows, but in new sections
the bulls sell readily, to be used
on native stock.
