A learn of young ball players went

game with the junior team of that
place. The jftidgeway boys were uot
quite swift enough for their visitors
from the county seat, end as the result
of the game one more 'baseball

score was 10 to 8.

A JOKE OX CANDIDATES.
The statement was made Wednesday
that there is a movement on fool
to establish a new county to whict
Fairfield. Kershaw and Richland wil
| be expected to contribute some el
| their surplus territory, and of wbiofc
Ridge way w i !I be made the count}
seat. We mention this simply as a
[rumor and arc not prepared to sav
[that there is any very substantia
| foundation for the report. If, how
i ever, an organized effort is to b<
mad? to create a new coanty, the promoters
of the scheme will get dowi
to work before lon^ and then "we'i
see what we'll see.
The idea, we think, would not be
generally popular in Fairfield and i(
would hardly meet with general apr>prtiral
in the other rnnnfies from
which it is proposed to chop off large
slices of territory. Fairfield embraces
only .about 625 square miles, an l w<
have never heard ths l the other connties
interested are embarrassed by
surplus area. This county is smal
enough now and any effort to make i
still smaller would, we are sure, bi
met with the most vigorous kind o
opposition.
It has been suggested tint this is a
clever little scheino that the numerous
candidates for tke 'sheriffs office havi
devised. A new county would offe
auother lield for the winning of po
litical honors.

THE FARMERS' INSTITUTE
The tarmcrs' institute held in the
court house Monday was rather poorly
attended, but those present were entertained
for three or four hours wit"h
highly instructive lectures and discussions
on subjecls of deep interest to
agriculturalists and_ those interested in
that branch of industry.
Mr. J. M. Stewart, president of the(
Faiciield Agricultural Association,presided,
and at 11 o'clock opened the
proceedings by introducing Mr. Sellers,
of Marion County, as the first speaker.
Mr. Sellers, who is a practical farmer,
has made a specialty of tobacco
culture aud it was on that subject that
Ms remarks were delivered. He referred
to the experiments in tobacco
raising that have been made in this
country, and he seemed to think that
the effort to diversify the crops in this
section by planting tobacco shoul I not
be abandoned He believes there is
no rea*on why the soil here is not
adapted to the successful prodociion of
"the weed." He described in detail
the method of preparing the plant bed,
transplanting, curing and matured
leaf, and packiDg preparptory to marIioc
oV>rr?r? 4ha .
rwtnug. JiA^SUtUVS ^o.=> .. mvv
. iii iliid State, at least, that the mail
planters are, comparatively, more successfal
than those who go into it on an
extensive scale. The crop is snch an
exacting one jlhat the average farmer
fi. cls it impossible to give a very large
acieage the care and attention ilnt it
demands. Mr. Seilers estimates the
tobacco crop of Marion this year at
twenty million pounds, and its market
value at $500,000.
Col. Newman, of Clemson College,
followed with a most entertaining ad
t dress on "small maustne3 on me
Farm." Col. Newman is well known
in Fairfield, and it goes without saying,
that bis ^talk was chock fnll of good,
sound, practical advice to the farmers.
He dwelt principally on the feeding
and care of stock, dairy farming and
dairy products, raising of poultry, etc.
lie advises farmers to iucrease the
producing power, and market valne
of their cattle hogs, poultrv, etc., by
exercising more care and judgment in
breeding. lie referred to the value of
silage as food for stock, and made sog
gestions lor the building of MIos.
Dr. Keejon, of Clemson, spoke on
the subject of "Veterinary Science."
lie described the diseases to which
cattle and stock in this part of the
country are most commonly subject.
He referred particularly to the disease
l-nnmn us Totos f/>vpp rmtfinrvl fhft
symptom* uppear almost invariably,
s?,f' <plained (lis method of preventing
lis spread. He regards this
disease as almost insurable. Carcasses
of cattle that die of it should be burned
or buried immediately to prevent infection.
Cattle are inoculated with
the germs of the disease by ticks.
Partial immunity against the disease
m ay be secured by riddirg the farm
of these insects. IIg spoke somewhat
at length on the subject of hog cholera,
1 a disease that is dreaded by stock
raisers.
Many of those preseut have been
licavy JSJOUia luiuugu Lut laiiigd ui
these diseases, and they received some
1 sound information as to the best
' methods of dealing with and stamping
1 ont the infectious diseases of cattle.
Prof. Morrison, of Clemson, was
the last speaker. His subject was ?Industrial
Education " He made an
' earnest plea tor the development of
this branch of education. A number
of articles made by the C!em-on students
in the collcge shops were ex

Just now our farmers are nj "icing
over the excelledL rains that fell here
on Tuesday and Thursday. The rain
was ccrlaialy needed as crops of all
K1UUS XittU ^uuiuitiiijcu IV ckuiti WUsideably.
Tke rain on Thursday was
accompanied by considerable Ihander
and lightning; indeed it was one of
the heaviest thunder storms of the
season. All manner of vegetatiou is
leaking gieatly refreshed since the
raine. The farmers are now busily
engaged r? fodder from their
early corn. Tne corn crop is remarka"

weather conditions t'u?t have prevailed;
in some instances th 1 com crop i3 very
fine. We are glad to note one fact
righf here, that there has been a larger
area devoted to corn this >ear than
has been the case heretofore. In fact,
all our farmers not alone in this im
[ mediate section, but throughout all
| oar piDey woods- and sand nill country
have devoted more attention to raising
their supplies at home tbis )carthan
they Lave ever done before. We have
al! been blessed too with good crops.
We should certainly be thankful to
G..ii for 1I13 many b'csi-i. gs lie has
bestowed upon us.
The cotton crop is looking nicely
i-incc the recent rains. Cotton on
smmIv land ha? omxeiccd to open,
and in some instances itis thick enough
to commence picking. Gardens are
not doing so well. Waiermelons are
about all gone, We've had some very
fine watermelons t! is year in our section.

A Mother Tells How She Saved Her Little
Daughter's Life.
I am the mother of eight children
and have had a great deal of experience
with medicines. Last summer
my little daughter had the dysentery
in its TOnrst; form. YVe thon^ht she
would die. I tried everything I could
think of. but nothing seemed to do her
any gocd. I saw by an advertisement
in "our paper tbat Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was
highly recommended aEd sent and got
a bottle at once. It proved to be one
of the very best medicines we ever bad
in the house. It saved my little daughter's
life. I am anxious for every
mother to kuow what an excellent
medicine it is. Had I known io at, first
it would have saved me i great desl of
anxiety and my JittJe daughter mucb

ADVICE FOK RIDGE WAY.
Ilulgcway wants a coUou mill as
we!! as a new county. Wc would adrisf
Aur friends to trv for
(he cjtlon mi!! first. It will help
tbcca to get the county I" South
Carolina at ths present time it is considered
bad manners for a town without
a cotton mill to a?k for a helping
of new county pie.

Ambitious JSidgeway is after a new
county and would not object to taking
a small slice of Richland to straighten
the lines. We don't care; but RidgeTirol?
trill find if-, rflfh^r hard work, we
fancy, to annex any of our sandhiilers.
The election industry will never be as
profitable to them in another county as
it is in (his, where Columbia candidates
are pulled for fodder every two
years aud yield liberally. No such
crop can be found in Ridgewav.?The
State.
