The Monument Fund
One dollar has gone from
Pickens county to the fund for
the monument to commemorate
the devotion of the southern
woman to the cause of the con
federacv. This should be the
first of one thousand. One hun
ded would be a good propor
tion and answer the demiand.
One million dollars could not
pay the debt of gratitude due to
4he women of this territory who
wrought, suffered and sorrowed
from privation, death and de
feat, then from the wreck and
ruin of all but the goodness of
woman she turned to give her
hand, her heart, her life and in
spiration to the work of redemp
tion that is enough to glorify
any people. Her devotion, her
self sacrifice, her patriotism has
been woven into the fiber of our
southern life and won the great
er battle of seventy six. Dur
ing the dark days of the war
she took care of the lambs in
the wilderness, lived on sweet
potatoes, drank rye coffee and
knit socks for the soldiers. Such
devotion shall lend luster toevery
page of history upon which it is
Let us give back to the poor
debt-burdened State the sum to
which she tied a string, and
from the current gold of love
we'il forge the chain to link the
future to the past, and let the
children hear, when they ask the
reason why, that "Spartan
mothers loved their sons, but
loved their liberty the most."
The LaJffleR's Moveffeit
The Laymen's Movement mi
crobe seems to be getting into
the muscles of the church mem
bers. A more elegant rhetorical
figure might have been framed
if we had had time to wander
through the wilderness of our
intellectual jungle, but it would
not have been any better under
stood by the crowd we are talk
ing to. Inertia is the only im
pedim ent to phyical progress.
Steam applied to the locomotive
has proved the most effectual
means for overcoming that. A
careful and conservative engi
neer has: said there is enough
power wasted in the flow of our
mountain streams to the ocean
to turn every spindle and car
wheel in the state. It just needs
to be caught and guided to the
proper point. Just think of the
unused wealth, tact and talent
the laymen's movement is about
to harness and hitch to the work
of the church. Great good has
already been accomplished. It
seems to be a united effort lubri
cated with some peculiar oil that
does away with denominational
friction. Denominational rust
has used up and1 absorbed enough
christian force to endow every
orphanage in the state. There
is no guessing, and it makes no
difference, how much the frater
nal organizations have contrib
uted to this movement. Pour
ail the good into one channel, so
ail the creeds can sail their craft
on the swelling tide of love to
God and man and drift into that
sea whose waves shall hear His
voice when he says: "Pea':e,

We are just now "fixing to p
get ready'' to begin farming in n
te South anyway. Our ex- 3
cessively low average yields are a
nt necessary. Commissioner r
Watson tells how the average n
yield of corn per acre in South o
Carolina has been nearly doub
kd in two years. Isn't that t
simple statement full of hope j
and promise to every southern
farmer? It seems to us that ev
ery South Carolinian who has
helped to bring about that in
creased yield should be able to
look the world in the face with
a calm assurance that he has
done at least one worthy thing;
and that every one who did not
help should set out this year
with a firm determination to do
his part in the good work. Let
us buckle down to the task each
:ne of us in his place and at his
particular work, and to make
this the best year that the South
zrn farmers have ever known.

a- We want to talk to vou a little now
about our amnoniated fertilizers. The
acid and :roal season is about over.
r. Those who .,- acid and meal haul it
home early in the scason so that they
can mix it, The season for anmoni
ated goods commence later, and in
he ft. is abont started now. There is
no t much <difference in acids; one acid
r is about as guo as another. It is all
ri- miade of phosphiate- rock, (bone phos
piate lime.) crusied and treated with
sulphuric acid phosphate and one fertil
izer company turns out about as good
quality of this goods as another. The
difference in fertiliz.r is in ammoni
ated goods. Ammoniated goods are
made by taking this same acid phos
phate and mixing it with ammoniates,
iv blood tankage, nitrate of soda, cotton
J seed meal, sildphate of ammonia, garb
age. Now: some of these ammoni
ates do their work anl exhaust more
quickly than others and so by prop
1- erly mixing and manpulating our am
noniates. we have getton a fertilizr
that will nourish the plant from the
I time it sprouts. all during the growing
season. during the laying-by season
and up to the ti me the plant is ma
tired and ready to be gathered. Take
for instance nitrate of soda. It acts
quickly and exhausts. Cotton seed
e ncal will comlie in next: it will dis
solve and assimilate with the soil be
fore it becomes a plant food, just as
s. wh-n you plant a grain of corn it has
to germinate before it conies up. Tank
age cone in next and then blood;
which lasts uinti the crop is matured
~ and ready to be gathered. So by tak
ing the different kinds of ammoniates
in the proper proportion, one coming
in as one exhausts, we have a fertili
zer that will feed and nourish the
plant from the timne it sprouts until it
y is ready to be gathered. That is a
or complete fertilizer and unless it does
t that it is not a complete fertilizer.
s, It does not matter where you get it,
.y it is not a complete fertilizer unless
V- it feeds and nourishes the plant from
0- the time it sprouts untIl the crop is
ready to he gathered. These ammo
mates are very expensive. that is why
ammoniated goods cost more than
30 acids. Take sulphate of ammonia; it
costs p6l i.r ton laid down at the
~actory. We have bought quite a lot
,11 of this and are using it in fertilizers
that will sell for lezs than $30 per ton,
just Lccaus, we want to make the
l right kinI of goods; goods that will
make the crop grow and keep growing

his crop. Our inimoniated goods used
