I have just read Mr. John W.
Lyles' compliments to Winnsboro,

Away back before the Confederate
War we had a man named Jonah,
who warned the Ninehvites of a pend
ing curse and they repented in sack
cloth and ashes; and contrary to the
wishes of the fish-man, Jonah, the
doomed city was saved.
Now for the sake of Winnsboro's
glorious history of the past and the
plesaant recollections of Matilda
Roseborough and her long ginger
cakes and beer, can there not be
something done to divert the awinl
doom that is hanging over the old
town and threatti to hurl her in
of the lost. If only
a few righteous can be found within
her gats who have not bowed the
knee to Baal, may not the 'awful de
cree be altered.
Oh, my brethren, get busy if you
would save Winnsboro! I would sug
gest that the first thing to do is to
find the cause for her downward trend

in the fact that too many darned!

)AIRYMEN HOLD ANNUAL MEET.
Annual Gathering Held on Farm of

Darlington.-The annual convention
of the South Carolina Dairymen's as

James L. McIntosh, near Dovesville,
in Darlington county, and was attend
ed by a large number of dairymen and
farmers from all parts of the state.
More than 200 were present, represent
Ing 15 counties. The surroundings
were ideal for a dairy convention, for
*he highly developed dairy cows owned
by M1r. NiIntosh. owner of Clover farm,
then those interested in dairying.
The meeting was called to order by
R. "M. Cooper, Jr.. of Wisacky. pres
ident of the association. James L.
McIntosh. owner of Clover Farm, then
welcomed the visitors to his farm. He
said this was the largest attendance
for an annual conventon since the
state association had been. organized.
Few speeches were made, but those
which were made so impressed the
-isitors that they will go home witn
more inspraton and better equipped
'or intelligent dairy work.
J. C. McDowell of the dairy divis
Ion. Washington. gave a very intel
ligent -discussion of the "Factors
Leading to Success in Dairying." Ac
cording to Mr. 'McDowell, South Caro
lina Is a great field for the develop
ment of the dairying industry. "High
producers are the only cows which
give profits," said 'Mr. McDowell. He
was very emphatic in his declaraton
that to make progress as a dairy
state, dairymen must eleminate the
scvub cows and padicularly the scrub
hulls. It not only pays to keep good
cows. but it pays to feed them, said
Mr. McDoNgell. He paid % splendid
tribute to dairying in Soutn Carolina.
saying that this state was second to
Pennsylvania in the number of bull
Dr. Edward R Teigs of Beltsville.
Md.. then gave a very instructive
lecture on the mineral requirements
of cows. According to Dr. Meigs, a
great many cows suffer as a result of
a detiiency of lime. All of the vis
itors were then called to' the dinner
tables. where a picnic dinner was
served by the women in attendace.
Dr. J. F. Devine. noted speciall3t
from Goshen, N. Y., then enlightened
the visitors and gave much valuable
information on the dreaded disease of
abortion so prevalent in cows. Dr.
Devine doubtless knows more about
ths subject than any other veteri
narian in the country and in an inter
and of m. thods of cont o1.
After the addresses, the association
held a business session. A. L. James,
one of the leading darymniei of Dar
lIngton. was elected president of the

To Regulate Sale of Milk =
Spartaniburg.-City council has pass
ed an ordinance regulating the sale of
milk and milk products on the local
market. The ordinance has caused
considerable comment and in some
cases uneasiness. The ordinance re
quires, those who run dairies to handle
the milk in a sanitary manner, re
quiring that the milking be done In a
building with concrete floor, away
from the feed, etc. All animals are
required to stand the test for tuber
culosis. It was thought that the ordi
nance would prevent those who keep
cows for their own use from disposing
of their surplus milk and butter.
Farmers who sell milk and butter
in the city are up i the air. as it
were. for until they comply with the
regulations they can not dispose of
their -dairy products.
