power by steam and water is giving
way to electric power. The amount
of electric power generated by
steam has grown from 11,775 horsepower
in 1914 to 14,987 in^l919
and to 23,040 in 1920.In fact it has
nearly doubled since 1918. The
amount of hydro electric power has
alsp increased from 68,598 in 1914
to 93,697 in 1920, a considerably
development. The amount of steam
power applied directly and not converted
into electricity was 72,231 in
1914; 64,853 in 1919 and 61,740 in
1920. This was the most considerable
power factor in '1914 but is a
poor second now and in a few more
years will be replaced by electricity
produced by steam. The total horsepower
in 1914 was 176,008 and in
The number of white males employed
was 31,116 in 1914. During
the war period the number got as
low as 27,757 in August 1918. The
number now employed is 32,534,
showing an increase in the last year
of 3,206. This is about normal compared
with pre-war figures and doe6

white females at/work in mills inI

years of age working in the milis,
being prevented by State laws. The
,total number of children in the
mills, 14 to 16 years of age, was 3?a

I xhere were 98 fewer boys and 63
more girls. In 1914 the number of

FOR SWEET POTATO|
Clemson Gives Information On
Clemson College, Sept. 7.?With
I the harvest period for the sweet potato
drawing near, it is of vital im'portance
that ample storage space
I be provided. In the use of the standard
storage house, which is the only
sure way of keping potatoes,
a thorough cleansing, disinfection
airinp and artificial drying should
be given the ^ouse before the potatoes
are stored. Especially is this
Jtrue of previously used houses in
I which rots have given trouble.
(Houses that have been used or constructed
by the remodeling of old
and unused buildings, should be
j carefully dleansed, disinfected, and
j ired several days before they are

and unused house that has been con|
structed of new material, it will on'
ly be necessary to dry this out
thoroughly by the nrtificial heatN
The cleansing, disinfecting, and
natural airing should be done a
J week or ten days before the house is
to be used, and a thorough drying,

^vhich may cause poor keeping, as a
jresult of both over and under curing.
There are several effective meth,ods
of disinfecting that are recommended:
Two of these are as folt
