MR. EDITOR: Very little work
has been done since the first, day
of January, people have not set
tled down to work yet, in fact, not
many have earned enough since
the past year went out to pay for
the rations they have consumed
and they are still on the trot, not
ready yet to go to work. If they
could make crops frolicking around
the best crops that ever growed
out of the ground would be seen
all over this community. They
glory in frolic and fun, but that
can't make com and cotton grow,
audyet these people complain of
hard times, and they are the birds
that make them hard. They will
never be any better with them,
uuless they settle down and work
steady and stick down to it all the
time. Some of the country people
are brought up so narrow minded
that they boast of being the'mud
sills of the world, and claim credit
for everything as to the prosperity
of the country, that they work
harder than any other class of
people, and really they do lesB
work, and a portion of them have
very little reason about any thing.

An Intelligent Operative at Pel
zer Urges the General Assem
bly to Hold Their Hands
in tbe Matter of Reduc
ing Labor Hours in
MR. EDITOR: I understand that
a member of the legislature has
presented to that body a bill to
reduce the working hours in cot
ton mills lo eight hours per day.
Now, I wish to say to the people
-and I hope some of our legisla
tors also may see this-that the
mill operatives ar=? bitterly op
posed to any such bill. As things
are now we can make a good living
and by close work i?nd strict
economy save a little money.
Here, in the Pelzer cotton mills,
there are nearly three thousand
hands, and I will venture to say
that there is not one in the mill
(that is worth his place in it) who
isn't opposed to the eight-hour
law. The work is not hard, and if
the time should be reduced the
mill operatives all over South
Carolina would suffer, for wages
would be reduced and it would be
impossible for us to make a living
Besides, thy three hours taken off
would be lost time to us, for we
could not do anything in that
short while that would benefit us
Now, Mr. Editor, you people of
Edgefield have a cotton mill, and
if you were to run it only eight
hours a day, the merchants of your
town and the operatives of the
mill would suffer, for the reason
that the hands would be compell
ed to have supplies and their earn
ings would be insufficient to pay
Edgefield has always stood up
for the poor-those who must earn
their bread by the sweat of their
brow, whether in field or factory
and I trust that her representatives
will show their love for the people
by opposing the eight-hour law.
I am not in Edgefield now, but I
expect to be some time ajain, if J*
should be spared to live.
Good weavers here make from
75 cents to $1 per day by working

bill would for.;e cotton mill opera

A Nev. M -jt ior Corn Foddir.
A most important bulletin upon
the value of a new corn product i?
ready for distribution. Prof Pat
terson, the author, says : "Promi
nent among the recent discoveries
which will be beneficial to agricul
tural interests, as well as those
more directly concerned, is the use
of the pith of the cornstalk in the
arts and in the construction of war
vessels. Corn pith has properties
which for many purposes makes it
superior to any other substance
known One of the prominent uses
to which it is put depends upon
its ability to absomb great quanti
ties of water very quickly. In war
vessels its chief use is for packing
between the inner and outer shell.
This packing is put in under
pressure and if pierced by a pro
jectile it has the property of
absorbing water and swelling wi^h
such rapidity as to doss the hole
before water can enter the vessel.
Tho naval department of the U S
government has conducted exten
sive experiments with corn pith
for use in vessels, and the results
have been so satisfactory that it
has been adopted and specified for
use in the construction of all now
vessels. A number of European
nations, also, have adopted it and
others have commissions for the
investigation of the material look
iug to its adoption. This exten
sive uso of corn pith means a
market for a farm product which
has been almost entirely wasted
The process for the extraction of
the pith, as well as the new corn
product, is protected by patent.
Tho company controlling these>pat
ent8 has operated one large' plant
in Kentucky duriug the past year,
using the com fodder from 120,000
acres, and still has been unable to
supply the demand for tho pith.
The company is now constructing
three n<iw plants; one in Indiana,
and two in Illinois. At this stage
of the develomeut of this new in
dustry it is hard to predict what
effect it is going to have upon the
agricultural classes of any com
munity in the vicinity of those
'.pith extracting" plants. The
corn fodder of hundreds of thou
ands of acres, which has been
heretofore regarded almost as c
waste product, can now b6 sold ai
prices that will induce the farmer
to increase his acreage of corn
Not only ran the farmer find t
ready market for his fodder, but
after the pith is extracted, thc
residue is ground into a mosl
exoellent and profitable feed. Il
ia upon the value of thia product
ae a feed that Prof Patterson has
beeu experimenting. He says.
''Field cured corn fodder, after
having the ear removed, contains
about one pound of pith to every
14 or 15 lbs of blades, husk and
stalk. In the process of the ex
traction of the pith, the blades
husk are first removed and the
stalks are cut up into small piecs.
After the extraction of the pith
from the stalk what remains is
ground up into meal, which, in
general apperance resembles coarse
bran, dried mnlt sprouts, or
brewers'grain. This ground ma
terial is termed the new corn pro
duct'and is the material which
has formed the basis for the iu
! vesti?ation, the results of which
are given in Bqletin 43. Con
sidering the fact that these pro
ducts form so large a proportion
of the fodder it is important to
know the value of them in order
fhat farmers may get as, great a
eturn as possible for their crop."
- Referring to the kind cf ex
periments he s-tys : '"Tho experi
ments conducted in connection
with the investigation of the value
of the new corn pro'duoi, were of
two genera! kinds: Digestion ex
periment and the determination of
tha quantity and quality of the
product ns resulting from different
kinds of feeling. These experi
ments consisted in a compariso
of fhn new corn product with fod
der prepared and fed in the most
approved manner, and alco com
panion of the results with com
pounding different rations from
these feeds." Steers of good breed
ing were used in tho experiments.
Samples of dung and urine were
drawn daily and analyzed. Tho
general results a\?d conclusions
are given by Prof Patterson as
"The results of all tests made
Ehow the nev; corn product, to be
a valuable stock show the new
com product to be a valuable
stock foot!. They show it to be
richer in composition than the
whole fodder and th'* food com
pounds more digestible. The new
com product contained more
pounds of digestible food per
hundred pounds of the original
feed than does whole fodder, corn
blades or timothy hay.. Rations
compounded with the new 'jorn
product, as base are eaten weil :
by cattle. These rations are more
digestible than the same grains
fed with fodder blades and will
produce more gain in live weight
per hundred pounds of food fed
than the fodder blades ration.
Such rations are mure easily fed

not been possible heretofore with
any class of food products on our

they existed. Rations mixed in
