the wo how will he ever- iaeY
respeet r you?: It makes a
- a man. A drinker is a criminals fo
he either- makes it or buys It and
either is a crime. A criminal is a'
bad citizen, a bad neighbor. His ac
tion is an insult to decency and law.
Law is a sacred thing, whether a law
suits our feelings or our appetites
and desires, if it is constitutional, each
one should keep that law and see to
it that -others keep it. We-ought to
respect all law'or no law. It is a
serious and dangerous thing to defy
or assault any constitutional law re
gardless of how I feel about it. The
only safety of our people lies in ev
ery man taking as a serious respon
sibility the respecting of his laws,
and considering it a personal affront
and attack for any one to violate
them. Every violation of law weak
ens the fabric of society. If we put
up a united front and assume the
grave responsibility which is ours we
shall be able to put the bootleggers
where they belong and keep our boys
and men from being dragged down
to the shame and disgrace of a drunk
ards hell. Many a man will probably
answer us by saying "I will do as I
please." I will answer and say that
a man deceives himself when he im
agines he pleases to do wrong. No
human being ever viciously pleased
to do wrong until the devil had mas
tered him and made him a tool of the
kingdom of hell. I make a frightful
and shamefaced admission when I
say I choose to do wrong. For I ad
mit that my will is not my own, I
have given it to ar >ther. My charac
ter is not my own, the devil is using
it to destro m to seduce others.
I am not my miaster but a cowardly
slave to wrong appetites. My cour
age, my manhood, my better self, my
high self respect are gone. My God,
what a fix I am in!

TO THE VOTERS OF
RFA IJELD COUNTY.
I am in the race for the Legisla
ture because I stand for the advance
ment and upbuilding of our :county.
And in as much, as I am not very
well known all over the county I want
to take this method of talking to my
fellaw citizens, both ladies and men.
There are three important issues
that are common to us all-taxes,
schools and roads.
I am not in favor of- high tax. I
do not think that our people should
be taxed any more than is. necessary
and would, if elected to the legisla
ture, support any measur-e that was
introduced to relieve the tax pres
sure wvhere it would not effect the
efficiency of the department of gov
ernment from which it would have to
be taken. I heartily endorse any
measure that will bring to light any
property that should be taxed and
which is not. ! ai; ii favo:- of an
even distribution of t'.e ta~x burde:a

be kept and that the affairs of our
county, and state shall be adminis
teredl upon a sound andl business-like
principle, where every dollar spent

I want to assure you that I am
heartily in favor of running our coun
ty and state at as little expense as
is possible, and at the same time give
to our people the benefits due them.
Personally I am a poor man and feel
the need of caution in a financial way.
I am in no wise ignorant of the pres
-ent state of affairs all over our state,
and I am quite sure that we :n Fair
field county ar-e not different from
other parts. But at the same time I
feel that we will support our county
always in an~y enterprise that is for
-the good of our citizens and the up
building of our county in a way that

I am heartily in favor of doing ev

Now last, but not least, we come
to my hobby. I have thought of good
roads for Fairfield county so long
that it seems hard for me to realize
that there is a man, womtan or child
in Fairfield county who has not the
same ideas. We can't say or do too
much for good roads. They are the
greatest asset to any county in a fi
nancial way that we can have. The
advent into a county of a good road
program properly carried out means
the exit of low priced farm lands and
the low percentage of demand for
them. The person who at the present
day is in the market for a farm or
home will not seek for it in a county
that has not taken some steps for
ward in upbuilding.
I am in favor of a bond issue for
Fairfield county for Five Hundred
Thousand Dollars. Because it is
cheaper for us to pay the small-ad
ditional tax that it will put upon us
than to (1o without the good roads.
It will take the half-million dollars
to build us a fair system of highways
throughout the county. We have to
have it to obtain some of the thous
ands of dollars that the Federal gov
urnment is giving every year to the
different counties and states that are
trying to help themselves.
And we have first hand information
from the State Highway Department
that they have a good many-thousand
dollars ready to give to Fairfield
county just as soon as we pass this
little bond issue.
Friends, that is one of the greatest
reasons that I advocate this bond is
sue. We need this money on our
roads so badly and the government
is so anxious to give it to us. And
there is. no other way .for us to. get.
it. Ydu would not hate us lose all

Clemson College,'Aug. 8.-The ol4
practice of pulling fodder is not fol
lowed by the best farmers any more.
They have come to realize that fod
der is the most expensive form ofll:
forage which they can raise on the'r'
and especially for storage in the ear.
peas, soybeans, sorghum and other
things for forage and to leave their
corn alone until mature. They have
stopped this practice because they.
have found it to be, not only a hot
dirty work, but also that it reduce.
the yield of corn so greatly that they,
can not afford to do it.
Several different experiment sta
tions have ca -efully tested the
ter and have found that pullingW'
fodder reduces the yield of ear corn
by 10 to 12 per cent, says Prof. C. P.
Blackwell, agronomist. This loss
amounts to 3 bushels per acre on the..
average. Frequently the loss to ear
corn is worth as much as the fodder
saxed and the farmer has had his,
work for nothing.
, The leaf is the factory of the corn
plant where the raw material which
is taken from the soil ond the air
are united by the energy of the sun
to form starch, oil, protein, and fats
for the growth of the entire plant
and especially fo rstorage in the ear.
As the leaf dries out, these foods are
transferred, in a large measure, from
the leaf to the ear. If the leaf is
pulled before it is thoroughly dry,
this transfer cannot take place -and
the result is a loss to the ear. It is
because of this loss that the more
progressive farmers no longer depend.
on fodder as a storage for livestock,.
but-use instead cowpeas, soy beans,
velvet beans, sorghum, or some othak
source. Most of these are not on4?"
much cheaper' forage but also better.
Let us hope that it will not be long
until "fodder pulling" will be a relic
of the past.
