The farmers' institute comes

29. Our advice to every farmer
is to be sure to attend the former,
and as to tde latter arrange for it
Save Tour . own sorghum and
pea seed for next year's planting.
These valuable crops will never
be planted as largely as they
should be as long as the seed are
so expensive as they were last
vThat trolly car line to the
quarry is still being largely dis
cussed. It strikes us that what
is needed is to get something
definite to work on, and to this
end a meeting of interested citi
zens should be held and a com
mittee appointed to get such in
formation as is necessary to put
the scheme in a definite business
It Was the editor's pleasure
last week to spend two days in
Longtowfi, which means all the
way from Ridgeway- to the
Wateree River about fifteen miles
distant. Some notes of the trip
are herewith given.
In the first place the name is
very appropriate as indicating
that the country is thickly settled
for a long distanco. We do not
recall having ever before passed
through such a thickly settled
rural section for so long a dis
distance, especially after reach
ing Bryant the first postoffice on
the way, and five milea distant
from Ridgeway, our starting
point. One does not go a single
half mile in this section without
passing the home of a white
As one observes the density of
this population the thought can
not be kept back as to the edu
cational possibilities t~hat.. .arm

Though both the upper and lower
Longtown schools are more pros
perous than most rural schools,
what a grand opportunity there
is in Longtown foi a great cen
tral school! Of course such a
school could not be had without
causing some inconveniences to
some families in the matter of
distance. But what are these as
compared with the manifold ad
vantages to be gained? .If there
is an investment that pays parents
and pupils, it is the investment
of additional time in getting to
school in ordeT to get a school
that is prepared for the better
fitting of the pupil for college or
for life in the quicker time. With
a little sacrifice in the matter of
being closely located to the school
building-the great drawback to
educational progress in rural
sections-and with a special levy
for the support of a central
school, Longtown could have a
school that would compare with
I::the schools of any .other town.
With such a school we 'could see
-o reason why there should be
any need for any one to leave
this fine community to go to toned
for school advantiges. Rather
we think it would be a greaot in
ducement to have still (othes
families to move in &nd t-ik' part
in the dlevelopment of ti see
tion on which a kind provideniet
has smiled so pleasingly.

What a town Longtow n could,

One is impresse& with the
Longtown lands, wihich whilei
roling usa.,ie we ll. JTnging
by the favoiab!eness of the crol-s,
tHwy are possessed of nore than
ordi:ary forthity. The b-est crops
we -.aw were on the lands near
the river. The best single field
was the 30-acre field of Mr. C. P.
Wrav about two miles from
Ridgeway. It is superb and
shows the good results of high
fertilization and thorough culti
. The road to Longtown proper,
that is where the postoffice is at
the crossoroads, is fairly good,
having been largely built up by
the chaingang. g condition,
however, could be greatly bettered
by making a sand and clay road,
which is easily possible as the
soils are found close together all
along the way. Of the roads
leading out from the wain road
towards the river, it is best not
to speak here.
Longtown is not without some
old people. Mrs. Eliza Spurrier,
so we were informed, is now 93
years old. . Mr. Samuel McCor
wick, a gentleman of the old
school with whom we bad a
pleasant hour, is now in his 75th
year. He lives at the site of the
nansion of Col. Peay, who was
one of the richest planters of his
day and whose beautiful country
home, one of the finest in the
State, had to give way to Sher
The Longtown people are cer
tainly hospitable. Everywhere
we stopped, and that included
almost every house on the way,
except some at a distance from
the road not to be reached on a
wheel, we were shown the kindest
treatment. Our longest stops
were at the homes of Mr. R. C.
Reeves, Mr. S. Dixon and Hon.
J. D. Harrison, spending-a night
at each of the former two and
taking a dinner at the last, our
stay at each being made most de
ligitful in every respect.
Longtown like all other sec
tions of the county failed in its
corn crop last year. This short
ness has been bridged over in
part by the planting of forage
crops, especially sorghum, whiuh
several spoke of as a most valua
ble crop and one they would
plant more largely another year.
To do this they should save their
own seed this year, sot
avoid pay n prices
for the se with which to plant
their next\ year's crop, w~hielh,
-wethrdie corn crop of this
year is good or bad, should be
abundant for hog, cow, horse,
We heard of one farmer that is
going to try an acre of turnips.
We commenfi this enterprise, and
hope that others will follow the
example. He, however, had not
yet prepared his land. It is not
too late yet, provided it is well
prepared--an absolute essential
in preparing for a turnip crop.
The land should be thoroughly
broken, bedded, and rebedded if
this is necessary to destroy all
the grass. ____
Mr. P. B. Cornwell, who lives
near the river, is setting his neigh
bors a good example in the matter
of dairying. He keeps several
cows, finding sale for his butter
in Camden, eighteen miles away,
at good prices. He has a most
excelent device for caring for his
milk and butter, keeping it as.
sat isfact.orily as ho would with ice.
He has a small milk house in the
centre of which is a dry well
eighteen feet deep. The milk
and butter are placed on a frame,
consisting of shelves, and lowered
into the well by means of a wind
ass. Mr. Cornwell says the well
would be more satisfactory were
it twenty feet deep and lined in
with a cement wall."

The most of our farmers have
about finished laying by their
crops. Generally speaking crops
of all kinds are a great deal bet
ter than they were l&st year;
especially is this the case as
regards the cotton crop, which is
looking very promising indeed.
We all certainly have abundant
reasons for thankfulness to the
Giver of every good and perfect
gift for the manifestation of His
divine favor in sending us such a
favorable and seasonable year,
and for the many other blessings
He has bestowed on us. The
corn crop is in most instances
very good. Corn of the late
planting looks promising; am glad
to say the corn acreage has been
considerably increased in our sec

are in most instances very fine.

J. A. Kelly relates an experience
similar to that which has happened in
by thousan'ds of others. He says: "Last
sumnier I had an attack of dysentery
and purchased a bottle of Chamber

Remedy, which I used aedordhi to
directions and with entirely satisfactory
results. The trouble was contrblled
much quicker than former atta~cks
when I used other remedies." Mr.

As soon as crops are finished
up it is time to get on the roads
again and continue that work.

necessary this year.

in places. They have be~en very
fine this year.
