PUBLISHED WEEKLY WINNSBOR09 S. C. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1906.ESALHD144
The county campaign meeting
held here on Saturday passed off
-very pleasantly and w i t h o u t
special incident. The meeting
was held in the grove at the upper
Longtown school house and was
presided over by Mr. A. W.
Matheson. The crowd, which
probably numbered about 300,
was very orderly and gave all the
candidates a good hearing. The
candidates for county supervisor,
Messrs T. C. Leitner and J. B.
Burley, spoke first. They were
followed by Messrs T. M. Jordan
and C. A. Robinson, candidates
for county superintendent o f
education. The candidates for
the house of representatives spoke
next. Messrs T. S. Brice, W. W.
Dixon, Chas. Leitner and J G.
McCants spoke in favor of the
State dispensary and Mr. A. H.
Brice in opposition to it and in
favor of local option as between
county dispensaries and prohibi
tion. Mr. A. L. Scruggs, can
didate for treasurer, spoke next.
Messrs R. C. Stevenson and E. F.
Pagan, candidates for county
auditor, were the last speakers
on the program. After the con
elusion of their speeches dinner
-was announced and the large
-crowd repaired to the table to
-partake of the bountiful repast
'which had been so consumately
prepared for the occasion. In
addition to the dinner about sixty
gallons of free lemonade w a s
served to the crowd. The com
-'ittee who had charge of the
arrangements for the meeting ard
of the preparation of the dinner
consisted of Messrs D. W. Tidwell,
Jas. C. Stewart, Jno. T. Stewart
and David Smith.. Too much
praise cannot be given them, for
they were untiring in their efforts
to make the occasion a pleasant
one for everybody. To the ladies
also is due equal praise, for they
all brought well filled baskets,
which greatly added to the other
vise bountiful dinner.
After dinner the crowd called
-on Senator Johnson for a speech.
Ie at first declined, saying that
1e was unperepared.' The crowd
lowever, would not take- any
,excuses, and he finally yielded to
their importunity and made an

White Oak Notes.
The constant wet weather that
we have been having for the last
several weeks have about ruined
the fodder. A great deal that
has been pulled has spoiled for
the want of sunshine, and all that
is not pulled is burning up on the
stalk. The wet weather is also
damaging the cotton, causing it
to shed and rust to a great extent
in this section; forms and bolls
the size of bird eggs are falling
off at a rapid rate.
There has just been discovered
in this section a large ugly dark
colored bug that is boring into
the cotton bolls, causing them to
rot. As many as five or six dam
aged bolls have been found on one

How to Have Winter Pasture.
Is there any winter grass really
worth anything as a practical
winter pasture for January and
February? If so, what is it?
Where can I get the seed? What
is the cost? When planted? How
planted? and how much seed per
acre? I have a herd of grade
Herefords and some Shorthorns.
II want to plant something for
them to graze on in January and
February on prairie sloughs and
bottoms. I have a fine pasture
consisting of Bermuda, Johnson
grass and Millilotus, which lasts
from about first of March to mid
dle of December. The Millilotus
which comes from the seed lasting
until about middle of December,
and that which comes from the
roots the following spring, gives
good grazing by first of March
and until the Johnson grass and
Bermuda come in. 1 find I can
not afford to feed beef cattle, when
I can get only 3 to 31 cents for
fat cattle. So we are forced to
winter them as cheap as possible.
Can 1 plant the grass you suggest
in the pasture where my cattle
are now running, without fencing?
I will turn them in the fields
about December 1st, and they
will get good grazing there until
about 10th to 15th of January,
when I want to take them up
again. I enclose stamped envel
ope for reply. This is not written
for publication. J. D. R.
Comment by the Editor:
We are always glad to hear of
any one who is interested in the
stock business and especially
when they are endeavoring to
raise more feed stuffs for them.
We know that our people can
raise cattle, that they can be
made remunerative and the man
ure made clear to enrich our soil.
We love cattle and pastures green,
and want to see more of them and
a better type. Yes, you can have
such a pasture as you desire, but
such pastures come only as the
return for money and labor. Still
they will pay and pay.well; both
in feed for your cattle and in
teaching you how to do the right
kind of work. We would like for
you to carry out the following
program, and report results to
the Cultivator. First, take ten
acres of land, fence off to itself;
break it deep and harrow well.
Put on all the manure you can
spare; broadcast it over if possi
be. Sow two acres in Dwarf
Essex rape; two acres in rye and
bur clover and hairy vetch; two
acres in rescue grass and Russian
brome; two acres in wheat and
oats mixed. Our markets are pay
i,. Armour & Co. over five cents
for beef gross; and if we will get
good beef breeds and fatten them
well there is no reason why we
can not get just as good prices.
If we will get at matters in a
business way we can not only
raise cattle, but get a good mar
ket price for them. Our cities
are growing and they must be fed
andi our fresh beef will be much
better than old stale stuff shipped
Pain from a Burn Promptly Relieved
by Chamberlain's Pain Balm.
A little child of Michael Strauss, of
Vernon, Conn., was recently in great
pain from a burn on the hand, and as
cold applications only increased the
inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to Mr.
James N. Nichols, a local merchant,
for something to Stop the pain. Mr.
Nichols says: "I ad vised him to use
Chaimberlain's Pain Balm, and the
first application drew out the inflam
petin and gave immediate relief. I
have' uge< this liniment myself and

An ej4erly woman who had
during the couirse of a somewhat
eventful life buried four huisbafds
encountered at the gates of the
cemetery where they reposed an
old but timid lover she had not
seen for years. SLe took him
inside and showed him, not with
out a feeling of pride, the well

Curing Pea-Vine nay.
W. J. J., Americus, Ga.-Please
send me some literature on the
best manner of curing pea-vine
Answer: I may say, in the first
place, that there is no cut and
dried rule that will suit every
case. I will give you our method
which we have used for fifteen
years or more, with perfect satis
faction in saving a good quality
of hay without serious losses.
Cow pea vines make the best hay
when cut at the time it is in bloom
and just a few ripe or full pods
on the vines, and properly cured,
but it is more difficult to cure at
that time than later. Our prac
tice is to wait until there are a
good many dry pods on the vines.
We start the mower after the dew
is off in the murning and run it
until noon,'or a little later, some
times. The vines are allowed to
lie on the ground, provided there
are no indications whatever of
rain. The next morning, after
the dew is gone, they are turned
over or raked into windrows with
a hay rake. In the afternoon we
put them in cocks about five or
six feet high and let them remain
without any further attention un
less there shall be strong indica
tions of rain, in which case we
cover each cock with what we call
a hay cap. This is made of ordi
nary seconds, sheetings or drill
ings, which cost six or seven cents
a yard. Each cap is six feet
square with a rough eyelet hole
worked in each corner. It is
stretched tightly over the cock
and tied down by means of a
piece of twine or a whisp of hay
near the bottom of the cock.
Thus protected, the hay will
stand until it is ready for the
barn, which will be known by
twisting any one of the large
ptems between the thumb and fin
ger. If no moisture exudes or
becomes visible, the hay can be
carried to the barn and stored
away, or put into a large stock
and covered with a few pounds of
straw or grass hay. A farmer
must exercise his good judgment
in the details of the process from
cutting to storing away.
The Breath of Life.
it's a significant fact that the
strongest animal of its size, the
gorilla, also has the largest lungs.
Powerful lungs means powerful
creatures. How to keep the
breathing organs right should be
man's chiefest study. Like thous
ands of others, Mrs. Ora A.
Stephens, of Port Williams, 0.,
has learned how to do this. She
writes: "Three bottles of Dr.
King's New Discovery stopped
my cough of two years and cured
me of what my friends thought

throat and lung troubles." Guar

A Postage Stamp.
I'm a stamp -a postage stamp
-a two center. I don't want p
brag, bgt I was never linked but
once, by a gentleman, too. He.
put me onto a good thing. It
was an evelope, perfumed, pink
and square. I've been stuck on
that envelope ever since. He
dropped us, the pink envelope
and me, through a slot in a dark
box, but we were rescued by a
mail clerk, more's the pity, for he
hit me an awful smash with a
.hammner. It left my face black
and blue. Then I went on a long
journey of two days and when
we arrived, the env~elope and me~
we were presented tto a perfect
love of a girl with a pair of the
stunningest blue eyes. Say, she's
a dream. Well she mutilated
the pink envelope, and tore the
corner of me off, with a hairpin.
Then she read what was inside
the pink envelope. I never saw
a girl b~tish so Igeaptifully. I
woald be stack og her if I could.
Well, she placed the writing back
in the pink envelope, then she
kised me! Oh, ye little godlets!
Her lips were ripe as cherries and
and warm as summer sun. We,
the pink envelope and me,- are
nestling snugly in her bosom,
where we can hearbher heart throt

VALUE OF ADVERTIUING.
State, City and Private Busi ness flust
Tell of -its Wants.
(Manufacturers' Reco rd.
Advertising is the keynote of
success in nearly every busin-ss,
whether that business b e the dle
velopment of a state, a city or an
individual industry. Boston's
proposition to spend $100,000 in
advertising is more than matched
by St. Louis, which expects to
spend several times t.b.t amount
in general advertising. The South
is seeking immigration and new
industries, and yet mos: sor thern
legislatures would regard 5a an
nual expenditure of $10,000 to
attract immigration as bordering
on wild extravagance, but Cuba
wants immigration, aned does not
need it one-half as badly as the
South, and its congress has voted
$1,000,000 to be expentied in that
work. A few days agc a Florida
planter came into the office of the
Manufacturers' Record to inquire
whether he could be directed to
any source from which he could
secure farm laborers. "My plan
tation," said he, "prcduces only
about 100 bales of cotton an
nually, against 400 bales before
the war, simply because of the
lack of labor to cultivate." From
a truck-grower in the same state
comes a similar appeal. In fact,
everywhere throughout the farm
ing regions the cry for labor is as
pronounced as in the factories
and mines. Landowners are beg.
ging for men to cultivate their
idle property, furnaces and mines
are running far short of their
capacity because workers are not
to be had, cotton mills are con
suming half a million bales less
than they would be u'sing if they
could put their idle spindles and 2
looms to work. And yet while
the South is doing much talking
about these needs, it is really
doing but little active work. The
state which needs laborers must
follow Boston's example and be
ready to spend liberally to get
them. The averiage man would
think that certainly great indus
trial interests (the factories within
the city limits in 1900 exceeding
in capital the aggregate manufac
turing capital of Georgia and
Alabama in the same year) would
hardly need to advertise, but the
spirit of New England knows no
limit to its activities, and to this
spirit is due the wealth and in
dustry of that section. Surely in
this good work Boston could be
profitably imitated by every state
and every town in the South, and
likewise by every business man in
